Stocking Stuffers: Steamcream

Hydrating lotion in attractive tin jars, oh my! Here’s a great stocking stuffer idea: Steamcream. Straight out of the UK, Steamcream is a multipurpose cream made from steam. It’s like the Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream of Britain. But the coolest part about this cream has got to be the packaging. Funky eco-friendly tin packaging designed in Japan and decorated with limited edition collectible designs like leopard or bedazzled.

They’re so fun to carry around, perfect for the purse, desk, bedside table. Use it anywhere – on hands, body, face – it’s great for all skin types. Winner of the 2010 Beauty Insiders Choice, Steamcream does not disappoint in it’s hydrating abilities.

But you may be asking yourself, why steam?

Here’s a word (or several…) from the company:

“Steam has been recognised for its benefits to skincare for centuries. Which is why we put pure, unrefined steam directly into our cream. The result is a soft, luxuriant and glossy cream… STEAMCREAM have pioneered the use of a steam technique to create this unique, gentle and loosely-bound emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient – including a moisturising and soothing oatmeal infusion, orange flower water and healing lavender oil – to breakdown and penetrate areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.”

Steamcream makes a really cool gift AND it’s effective as a moisturizer. What more could you possibly ask for?
