Skincare Review | MAC 'Strobe Cream'

Last month I went on a bit of a shopping spree at MAC (you can find the haul post here). Since then, a lot of the items have found their way into my every day beauty routine, and with good reason! Today I'm bringing to you my thoughts on the MAC 'Strobe Cream'.

The ultimate quick fix for the skin. Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight.

As I did my order online, I was disappointed to find that the full sized product was out of stock. So instead I went for the travel size version, which was actually better for me - that way I'd be able to try out the product, without having to splash out for the full size and realising I hated it. Thankfully that's not the case here!

The cream itself is a light moisturiser, and doesn't feel like it bogs down the skin like with some heavier creams. In my own personal experience too, it feels refreshing when applied on skin - which is a miracle when you suffer from bad dry patches.  On application it gives a gorgeous, dewy glow and really helps to highlight the face.

On holiday this was the perfect product for me; it gave enough of a glow that I could wear it alone during the day on the beach. And at night I could wear it underneath my makeup and still look dewy. Mixing this with my Studio Fix foundation gave me the perfect combination of perfect foundation coverage and a even glow.

Overall, I'd say this product is perfect for most skin types - it doesn't feel like it makes skin unbreathable, whilst still being hydrating and moisturising. If you're after a flawless glow then I'd definitely say this is the product for you - my skin looks so much better after using this as a base before my makeup. Or even on its own it helps to even out the dry patches and give a stunning dewy look.

Have you used Strobe Cream before? What are your thoughts? Or do you have another MAC product to recommend to me? Let me know in the comments below!
