I have used this moisturizer for years and just love it. I don't like scented products at all, but this one has a nice clean scent that is not too strong. It's very light, soothing, and great for my oily skin.
Recently, I took a break and downgraded to a less expensive product (trying to work out the budget!), but that was a mistake. My face felt irritated (probably by the sunscreen in the product) and I felt as if my skin quality was going downhill. I have switched back to DayWear and am remembering all the things I love about it.
I was so disappointed to hear that DayWear Plus Multi Protection Anti-Oxidant Lotion SPF 30 was discontinued and replaced by this product. I loved the high SPF, the consistency and the texture of the older version. This one does not pack the high SPF needed, it leaves my skin oily and does not have the elegant feel as the other version. I was am not impressed and will not be using it again.
I've been using DayWear for many years now, and it always has been one of my MUST for skincare regimens. This is a very nice new formula, and the only, but very big flaw, is the lack of a higher SPF. Estee Lauder should have kept the SPF 30 version available. Until a SPF 30 or higher is available, I'm not gonna spend my money on this one, sorry...
I have used this moisturizer for years and I love it. It doesn't break me out and I have oily, acne prone skin. I used to only use it under makeup, as I didn't think I needed to moisturize at night due to my oily skin. I soon began a regimen, however, at night that includes this wonderful lotion. The next morning, my skin is as soft as a baby's skin. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this moisturizer. I highly recommend it to everyone, but in particular, those with oily skin.
I'm not sure why the SPF 30 DayWear was discontinued - maybe to bump up EL's sunscreen sales? It is very disappointing as I loved the SPF 30 product and thought it was well worth the money and wore it daily for years. I've been loyal to EL for 10+ years for all my make-up/skincare needs but am switching brands to find a moisturizer with at least SPF 30.
I like this lotion okay, but the old formula was much better! It made my face look plumper and younger, and moisturized better. This one tends to make my face look oily without the youthfulness imparted by the last formula.
I finally found the perfect moisturizer for my acne prone, oily, sundamaged, red, 36 year old skin. I have tried MANY different moisturizers, but never could find the perfect one. I needed a moisturizer to improve my skin, not make my face evn more oily and had an SPF in it.Every moisturizer I tried with an SPF either made my face more oily or when it dried and I touched my face small pieces of skin would just roll off onto my hand. This moistuizer is lightweight and great for my oily skin. Afte applying it, it left my face with a healthy glow. I would really recommend this to anyone with combination or oily skin. Thanks for a perfect moisturizer Estee Lauder!
I have naturally oily skin and most moisturizers I've tried have left my face greasy and shiny. EL's DayWear absorbs almost immediately! There's no shine and I haven't been having to blot my skin since I started using it. I've been using it for about a week now and my skin is already noticeably softer and more radiant! I am now a loyal customer of EL's products and am so happy I tried this product!
I have combination skin with rosacea and cystic acne. I'm also starting to age a bit. I was in desperate need of a moisturizer. Every type of moisturizer I had tried that had SPF in it from all the major brands to all the drug store brands, always left my skin flakey and gross. This moisturizer was absolutely perfect, though. My only gripe is the high cost as it's kind of expensive. I have been using mine though for about six months and am doing pretty well with it. A little goes a long way.
I was using another moisturizer for about a year. It was gel based and oil free to keep me from breaking out, however, it kept making me break out!! I couldn't figure it out until I started using this product. I love the smell and how it's super lightweight. It's also oil free which is great. I wish it came in a bigger bottle and wasn't so expensive!
I really like this moisturizer. It is light weight and doesn't make my face feeling greasy or oily. I like that it has SPF in it. It also has a great scent to it. My husband even commented on how good it smells.
First, this product smells wonderful. I don't like perfumed products, but I really love the calming scent of cucumber. Second, I have used both this and the cream (which I also like), and in both cases, I don't feel like I'm wearing SPF, which has tended to feel thick and not easily spreadable. It's wonderful to have such a lovely moisturizer that also protects my skin from the sun. I've been wearing it every day since I received it!!!
When I use this I can feel it on my face, like I'm wearing sunscreen. I hate that feeling. My skin feels like I just went for a run and sweat a lot. In addition, it makes my skin look shiny. I prefer the way my skin looks without the moisturizer because it isn't shiny/oily and feels cleaner. I've been trying to find a moisturizer with SPF to protect my skin, but this just isn't it for me. This really didn't seem any different from Olay's complete all day moisturizer to me, which I also didn't like for the same reasons. I did like the way this one smelled though. Maybe I'm just not used to wearing moisturizer yet.
It's a very smooth lotion and it's very easy to glide onto the face. The pump is easy to use and the lotion doesn't make your skin oily when applied; however, I cannot handle the scent of this lotion. It smells like those hair removing creams (example, "Nair")! I tried to force myself to overcome the smell of the cream, but ended up washing it off. I'm returning this. Sorry Estée Lauder! Not this one.
This is a wonderful moisturizer--so much better than any OTC product I have ever tried. I use it together with Idealist in the morning and ANR at bedtime. Since I've started this new regimen I have noticed a great difference in my skin. I really like DayWear because of it's water-light texture. It doesn't feel heavy like a cream or sticky like a gel. The only drawback to this product is the smell--it reminds me of a depilatory cream...but it's not overpowering. I have very oily skin and it doesn't make me feel greasy. I would recommend it for normal or combination skin, however. I am going to keep using it, though, because I love the SPF and antioxidant protection. I just ordered the Sparkling Clean cleanser and hopefully that will help me with oil control so I don't have to stop using this awesome moisturizer.
