I'm going to come clean: I bought these tins of Steamcream (a year ago, I believe) because of the packaging. Crazy cat lady, yo!
Although I've read both positive and negative reviews online, my experience with Steamcream is 98% positive. The lavender scent is relaxing, not overpowering and it dissipates into something more faint within minutes. It was a great addition to my bedtime ritual.
It's feels just like other cream products but gets absorbed into the skin in less time. Absorption time is comparable to that of an emulsion or light moisturizer.
I found this to be very gentle on my facial skin and worked nicely in calming my skin when it was feeling extra sensitive and irritated. This also helped get rid of stress-induced eczema that appeared on my arm a few months back.
The 2% negative is that it comes in a tub, which isn't the ideal packaging for cream products. It's not a big deal because I use a sterilized metal spatula to scoop out product each time.
If I find another cat-themed tin in the future, it's definitely coming home with me.
