If you have known me long enough or followed my work at all you will know two things, my love of Steamcream and Japanese beauty products. Maybe a third thing being my love of tea but that had its moment two weeks a go on the blog! This week I’m focusing on talking about Steamcream, after all it has been one of the most constant parts of my kit for 8 years now. As years go by other moisturising products come and go but nothing has beaten it yet, it is really one of my absolute must have products!
That’s why you can imagine my utter delight when a package arrived in the post with not one, not two but three of Steamcream’s latest products. All three of the new range products looked amazing but me being me, I was immediately drawn to the Japanese Citrus Moisturiser thanks to the beautiful colours of the tin that piqued my intruige.
Steamcream believe there are 7 seasonal transitions in the skin which makes so much sense when you really sit and think about it. There may only be 4 seasons we generally think of, but how often do you find people joking about ‘second winter’ 0r how the feeling of a sunny summer comes and goes so regularly in the months we are in. To help support your skin through these ever changing weather cycles Steamcream are introducing the range over the seasons.
Japanese Citrus is May to July’s designated cream and I am excited to keep using it and see how my skin feels. During these months we generally are feeling the warmth of the climate which can bring out a lot of oiliness in the skin and if we are in and out of the heat and airconditioned cars our skin can quickly become dehydrated. This can be complicated to battle both oily clogged pores and dry tight skin, but so far this moisturiser feels soft and light and quickly absorbs into my skin so perfect for summer. It even feels lighter than original Steamcream which I loved anyway but this one maybe even more! On first applying you notice the smell of the cream which is so delicious full citrus summer freshness like Mandarin Orange which is one of the brilliant calming ingredients and it gives an instant feeling of hydration whilst continuing to soothe and deeply condition my skin for long after it’s been applied.
So if you want a quick round up of why I love Japanese Citrus Moisturiser here it is
Lightweight and easy to apply to face, body and hands
Doesn’t leave the skin sticky and easily absorbed into the skin
Smells delicious if you love the scent of citrus hues
Tailored for the months of May-June for specific summer skincare needs
Both instant and long term calming hydration for the skin
Good price point £15.95

I can not guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally
think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to
anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.
