The texture of this cream looks very thick - its appearance reminded me of tubs of Nivea that I used to use for moisturisation as a teen. However, when I applied the Steam Cream I noticed that it almost had a watery texture to it, quickly disappearing into the skin. I am guessing this is due to the steam 'injection' they give the cream?
The scent of this moisturiser is heavily lavendar based. Fine for me as I like the relaxing scent of lavendar and it really does smell like the plant rather than an old fashioned synthetic scent. However, for those who don't I should imagine this would be far too overpowering - like sticking your head in a lavendar bush!
Steam Cream seems to be working great for me whilst my skin is behaving. However, I can imagine that if you were having any form of breakout or sensitivity this probably wouldn't be of much help. Also, if you are looking for a miracle wrinkle removing product this won't produce any miracles.
At £12.95 for 75ml I thought this was pretty reasonable for a facial moisturiser. However, it is supposed to be multi-use and if I was to use it solely as a body moisturiser I wouldn't be as impressed with the price.
Overall, I think Steam Cream is a perfectly good facial moisturiser for well balanced, calm skin and I will continue to use this for the time being. The packaging is beautiful and so are the all natural ingredients. However, I may need to switch over if I have any skin troubles after baby is born!
Are you a Steam Cream fan? Or were you less than impressed?
