Steroid hormones are lipid soluble substance which can easily pass through the plasma membrane.
Examples of steroid  hormones: estrogen, progesterone, testosterone,etc.
Their receptor proteins are either cytosolic or nuclear, rather than being located on the cell surface.
 
Hope you got the answer.
