The claims of renewed skin cells, diminishing age lines and existing wrinkles, and just generally making skin look amazing are just a few of the urban legends that surround this moisturizer or at least in my experience they are urban legends.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye cuppycake fans!

Steamcream has a new limited edition tin available in a design they dubbed Lola. As far as I’m concerned cupcakes are the work of the Devil himself!

Loves ‘em all the more!

Steamcream embraces the love of evil cuppycakes with this sweetly designed tin featuring everyone’s favorite baked good.

They say it’ll sell out fast….

So best snatch it up while the grabbing is still good.

I’m tempted, boy am I tempted.
