Steam Cream

How pretty is this tub of lotion?


Steam Cream is made in the UK and Japan. It’s available in Beauty Bar here in Manila. An excerpt from their website on why steam:

Most creams are made with complex molecules bound together by a powerful emulsifying process; the problem with this is that they just sit on the skin’s surface. They give a good first impression, but don’t keep their promises.

It’s STEAMCREAM’s unique STEAM process that makes our cream much more effective on the skin. The force of the STEAM fuses the ingredients instantly – holding them together in a very gentle and loose emulsion. When it touches your skin, the naturally moisturising ingredients and pure, calming essential oils are released from the light emulsion so they can sink past the surface reaching the areas they are needed fast. Your skin will feel intensively moisturised and softer for longer.

By using such a simple process, we can invest in natural materials such as orange flower water, oatmeal and vegetable glycerine to hydrate your skin. Almond and jojoba oils, with moisturising cocoa butter, soften the skin’s surface.

Its scent reminds me of Jergens cherry almond. Maybe it’s just summer, but when I slathered it on it felt a bit heavy. But by morning, my skin felt like it absorbed everything; the scent lasted overnight, too.


Check out more lovely packaging (images from the official website). Visit the design gallery here.

These sign designs would make great gifts.


Many are designed by Japanese artists, like Porky Rabbit (top left), “one of Hiroyuki Takahashi’s wonderful illustrations; he symbolises friendly happiness.”


I really like these astronomy- and retro-inspired ones, too. The one with the planets is a “Japan Exclusive” but its available here.


Lovely illustration on these blue and red ones.


There are lots of floral options, too.
