I recommend this product
Date:December 15, 2014
I have used this makeup for over 40 years. Over the years I've tryed other products and none match up to this. It does not have that heavy, greasy, dirty feeling that some makeup has. ItIt's a great product and shipping is extremely fast. I've never been disappointed with an Estee Lauder product.
I used this base years ago and could no longer find it. I then found it online......the only place you can find it. I ordered it and found the shade was not even close to what was shown online. I have returned it and ordered a different shade. Hopefully this shade will work.
Best For oily combo skins-just like box says!:d, stayed on wonderful finish, can be built to full coverage
Product: Semit matte to matte. Applies better using a brush or sponge. Used powder (non EL) after. Has a strange smell but only in bottle-did not smell on or after application. Lasts a long time untouched. Very nice. Customer Service: VERY patient with me (chat) to get to a shade, although I got a different one. Used linenbeige- a bit rosier than I thought, beiges appeared dark in site. Pros: A matte finish that is more velevety than the double wear. shipped quickly and well wrapped. Cons: not many shades, not available at stores so you cannot try colors. Expensive and EL seem to be very tight with the sample gift ( liny little one!!!)
I have been using Fresh Air for years and always get compliments! When the stores stopped carrying it, I was very concerned. Then I found E L on line and could order it and I was elated. PLEASE don't discontinue this foundation. It's just the best!!!
35 + years ago my dermatologist suggested I use Estee Lauder's Fresh Air Foundation. I have used it ever since and love it! It is light, yet provides a smooth, even, natural coverage and does not clog my pores. I get two different shades and combine them for the seasons, darker in summer and lighter for winter. I'm 66 years old and will use this product - hopefully available - until I die!
I was so excited when I dicovered I could get Fresh Air on line. I had used it for years and was SO upset and disappointed when it was discontinued. I have spent so much money trying to find a replacement with no luck. Thank you EL for making it available on line.
Best For anyone who wants a soft pretty look to their skin
I purchased this online about a month ago. I wear it over the Verite creme. My skin looks smooth and luminous - far younger than my 50+ years. It is light and comfortable to wear - I don't even feel it on my skin. I also am allergy prone, and have found that it does not bother me at all - no stinging or burning. I am very pleased with this product- please do not stop making it! It really is the perfect foundation for me.
I have used this makeup forever and have never found anything as nice. I love the lighter colors and the pink undertone. It compliments my fair skin. It doesn't cause my skin to break out as many others do. I hope EL never discontinues this product.
Foundation that feels comfortable and lasts all day. It's easy to apply, and doesn't make the eyes water as others do. Looks natural, not heavy. Have used it for many years. Recommend to everyone - it was recommended to me by a friend.
I wore this foundation for years (in fact, wore it on my wedding day forty three years ago!) and then it was discontinued. I used others, but then realized that it could be purchased online. However, at this point in time, I have switched to "Doublewear Light" and truly feel that while "Fresh Air" is still a good product, "Doublewear Light" now works better for me.
I used this product a long time ago, and suddenly, it wasn't available. I was told that it had been discontinued. I went on internet searching for another item and found it. I'm so happy. It is light, easy to apply and looks natural.
Love this foundation. It truly feels light and airy. I have tried many different brands of pore reducing foundations, but none have worked. This foundation is not labeled for pore reducing, but thought I would give it try, since I've tried practically everything else. Love this natural looking,healthy feeling foundation, and will buying this again, soon!
I have worn double wear for years and then my color was discontinued. After seeing all the bad reviews since EL made some changes, I was afraid to purchase double wear again. Thought I would try the Fresh Air since I have adult acne and some scars. I ordered the Ivory Mist and it was way lighter than the online color. Almost pinkish white. It did adjust a little when I put it on but still wasn't dark enough. I used my Oil Control Compact and that helped give me some color. Other than that, this is a fantastic makeup and at a great price to boot! Even if you have oily skin, you still do need an oil free moisturizer prior to applying this foundation. I use the oil free day wear except in the oily T-zone area. This looks really natural!!
I ordered this online based on the reviews. I am not sure if my local EL counter sells this, so I took a gamble and I am so glad I did! I ordered Linen Beige for my light/ med skin tone. I thought it may be a bit too light when it arrived, but it blends perfectly. It goes on smooth and light with finger application, doesn't settle into fine lines under my eyes, and looks very natural. I want to order a few more bottles of this because I am afraid it will get discontinued. I have been using Doublewear for a few years, which I like as well, but this is a bit lighter feeling. Definitely a great find!
I am a 3rd generation user of this make up and have used it for 40 years. It is also my 25 year old daughters favorite foundation. I had tried many others after I had been told that the Fresh Air would be discontinued, and nothing else could come near. I am so glad it is still available and don't know what I would do if they actually do discontinue. For winter use, I do wish there were a slightly lighter shade than the Linen Beige, but in the same color tone. The Ivory Mist is supposed to be lighter, but it is too pink for me. PLEASE.... NEVER DISCONTINUE THIS MAKE UP!!!
