new in: steamcream
Even though the holidays are over, winter is still in full swing. What does that mean exactly? Dry skin, dry skin, and more dry skin. That is why this season, I've been using STEAMCREAM. (If you missed my last post about it, you can check that out here!) Unlike so many other moisturizers I've tried over the years, STEAMCREAM really traps in the moisture. So, there are no more flaky patches or itchy skin. Needless to say, this has become my go-to product this winter!
One thing I really love about this product (other than the fantastic results, of course) is the packaging. Each tin from STEAMCREAM comes with a gorgeous design. They are perfect to use and display. I like to keep mine on my counter top. It just adds a little extra oomph! The first tin from STEAMCREAM that I tried was Thalia, which had a beautiful floral design.
The latest tin in my collection is Ume Ni Uguisu (pictured above). I love this design because it is so pretty and feminine. To me, the flowers, tree branches, and bird represent a new beginning. And the new year is the perfect time to celebrate just that! The moisturizer in this tin has the same luxurious texture and light scent that STEAMCREAM is known for. I am quite thrilled to have it!
I used Ume Ni Uguisu before doing my makeup and it definitely kept my skin feeling great. Here is my finished makeup look:
Other products used to create this makeup look were: The Little Mermaid eyeshadow palette, NARS Deep Throat blush, Blinc cosmetics eyeliner pen, and Bourjois Effet 3D lipgloss.
