~We are so excited to have been trying on and modelling this week some of the amazing new designs from London jeweller, Lucas Jack, that we just had to tell you a bit more about the brand.

~The Lucas Jack brand has to be jewellery that stands out for its colour and uniqueness but at the same time be highly wearable.

~All the Lucas Jack jewellery is plated with 18 carat gold and then brushed to give it a rich satin finish. Another nice feature is that none of this gold is mined but is sourced from recycled scraps and none of the scraps are bought from Africa where the mining conditions are often poor to say the least.

~As I mentioned we’ve all been wearing the latest jewellery this week and think if you decide to buy some you will agree it is quite simply beautiful jewellery that you will fall in love with and want to wear as often as you can.

~Not only are the products beautifully designed and stylishly made but as is often the case there is a really interesting story behind the brand.

~Lucas Jack was created in 2006 by Nick Bartley when he decided that his corporate banking job was just too dull to spend the rest of his life doing. So by taking the name from his 3 year old nephew and best friend, Lucas Jack Bartley, he launched the Lucas Jack brand with the very clear and simple objective of creating consistently beautiful, wearable and affordable jewellery. Nick is a self-taught jewellery designer and with each collection he sets about creating jewellery that is of the highest quality and yet easily affordable.

~In the last twelve months the profile of the Lucas Jack brand has increased significantly and just a couple of examples are given below.

~Cheryl Cole arrived for one of the X- Factor shows wearing the Lucas Jack Angel Cuff in blue chalcedony and rose quartz resin. She completed the perfect look by wearing the Lucas Jack Eclipse Earrings in brushed blue chalcedony resin.

SO WHAT MAKES STEAM CREAM SO GREAT?

Steam has been recognised for its benefits to skincare for centuries. Which is why pure, unrefined steam goes directly into the cream. The result is a soft, luxuriant and glossy cream. Steamcream breaks down immediately on contact with the skin to disperse each ingredient directly to the areas they’re designed to benefit.

The power and energy produced by bubbling steam melts and fuses the ingredients together at a speed that defies most traditional cream-making methods. The force and intensity allow the ingredients to emulsify instantly, producing this beautifully textured light and glossy cream. The emulsion is held together very loosely and gently, allowing the cream to break down immediately on contact with the skin for maximum benefit.

STEAMCREAM refreshes areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.

In most creams, the emulsifying process is what holds the ingredients tightly together. It can also stop creams breaking down. Because of this, each ingredient struggles to enter the skin individually. It stays as a blend, moisturising the skin’s surface yet preventing its real benefits from reaching deep into the skin’s molecular structure.

Steamcream creates a cream that forms a gentle and loose emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient to break back down to its purest form, penetrating the skin where needed. The orange flower water, oatmeal infusion and glycerine hydrate and moisturise deep into the skin. The almond and organic jojoba oils combine with cocoa butter to seal in their goodness, softening the skin’s surface.

The process is topped off with a fragrance created from a natural blend of pure essential oils selected for their toning, soothing and healing qualities.

THE ART WORK

Steamcream comes packaged in a cleverly designed flushed lid tin. Made from aluminium, each tin is decorated with eye-catching and constantly changing graphic-art images. Build up your collection and swap with your friends! Each design is run as a limited edition print, giving Steamcream an ever-fresh and changing image. Once sold out it provides a uniquely collectible piece of art.

Steamcream just sinks into your skin plumping it better than many ‘cutting edge’ comparatives and is why every leading beauty editor is trying to get hold of a pot!

True innovation is really rare but you can have this in a simple but extremely effective product that is Steamcream.
