STEAMCREAM - SHU Limited Edition tin

I was recently sent a pot of STEAMCREAM in SHU Limited Edition design*. The tin design is simply stunning - Vermillion Red Japanese lacquerware style in makie tradition adorned with gold flowers. This would make a perfect Valentines Day gift and a fab alternative to chocs or flowers.



Handmade in Poole, UK and Atsugi, Japan.  The cream is made using high quality ingredients which are fused together using a shot of steam.  The result is a lightweight and fluffy cream which is suitable for use on the hands, face and body. Ingredients used include Orange Flower Water, Oatmeal Infusion, Vegetable Glycerine, Almond and Jojoba Oils and Cocoa Butter.  Essential oils of neroli, lavender, chamomile and rose absolute make it smell divine.

A great multi-purpose cream making it the ideal product to take on your travels. It leave the skin soft, hydrated and lightly scented.

The tins are super gorgeous and great to use afterwards for bits and bobs. I store things like hair bobbles, dog biscuits and used stamps (which I give to charity) in my old tins.  You can see the range of designs currently available here.

Retails at £12.95 for 75ml

  1. I have seen these selling for quite a while now but since I'm just not a cream skin care person I've not picked one up. But some of the tins are just sooo lovely! They'd make a great container afterwards!

  2. These seem popular lately, but like Sharlynn I'm not really a cream skincare person either. Sounds lovely though! Xx

  6. I love Steamcream too. I forget how many empty tins I now have. Some are re-purposed, the others are stored away for future use.
