When is best to apply strobe cream?

Strobe Cream is a vitamin-enriched cream with a subtle iridescent finish, giving your skin a beautiful, radiant glow while adding essential moisture. This perfect moisturizer smooths skin, improves clarity, provides radiance whilst being dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested. Strobe Cream is an incredibly versatile product that can be applied in a range of different techniques. You can apply it directly to your face either using your fingertips for easy application, a brush like our #109S Brush for more concentration or a damp sponge for a diffused finish, leaving your skin looking glowy and quenched by illuminating and clarifying skin with a mega-dose of vitamins and Green Tea extract.

You can also manipulate your foundation texture with Strobe Cream by mixing it into your favourite liquid or cream matte foundations, like our iconic Studio Fix Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation, diluting it to a softer, subtle glow with a dewy finish without compromising on coverage. It also works beautifully dabbed lightly over foundation as a natural liquid highlighter on the top of your cheekbones and any area the light naturally reflects on the skin. When paired with our Fix+ Finishing Spray, you can achieve an intense, radiant glow across the skin. Strobe Cream comes in a range of shades suited for all skin tones, with Pinklite/Silverlite for lighter-skin tones for a brightening radiance, and Goldlite/Peachlite for medium-to-deep skintones for a natural glow.

Strobe Cream can be applied to targeted areas of the body for an all-over glow. For example, if you apply Strobe Cream to your collarbone or shoulders, you get an amazing glow perfect for your summer holidays, a sunny day or even a trip to your local supermarket!
