Love this foundation - forever!
Best For women of all ages
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!!!
I have been wearing Fresh Air foundation for about 35 years. When I was told they had discontinued it, I was really disappointed. I tried other foundations and was never happy. Now that they have Fresh Air back in the Estee Lauder line, I was thrilled. I just started using it again and it is a good as ever. It looks so natural and never changes color or sinks into my pores and or lines. It stays fresh looking all day long. Thank you Estee Lauder for having this wonderful foundation.
el fresh air base is the best foundation i have ever used. i have very sensitive skin and i never have a problem with this. excellent product. it always makes my skin look great. i hope el never stops making this foundation.
Let me start by saying, I have hated liquid makeup all my life (I'm 56) and I've tried my share of them. Then when all the powder/mineral makeups came out, I tried and really liked them until my skin was just too dry and they didn't look good on me anymore. So, once again I went on the search to find something...anything I would like that would not dry out my skin and settle in my lines and pores.
Last weekend a girlfriend was visiting and she mentioned she wore Estee Lauder liquid foundation, but she didn't say which one. So, after she left, I got online and just happened to find this makeup. I was so skeptical, but after reading all the great reviews, I decided to get it.
I AM SO SHOCKED! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this makeup! WOW...it's fantastic. OMGosh, where has it been all of my life?! I can honestly say it is the best liquid makeup I have ever used in my life!!
It doesn't dry out my skin, it doesn't make my skin oily, it takes absolutely no time to dry and I put it on right after putting on my moisturizer and I do NOT blot my moisturizer either, the color (Ivory Mist) is perfect, the coverage is wonderful, and IT DOES NOT NOT NOT SETTLE IN MY LINES OR PORES (and believe me, I use a 10x zoom mirror to make sure!).
Absolutely amazing!! Thank you and please don't ever stop making this makeup. I feel like I had to go without all my life and I don't want it to be taken away from me now.
There is not a better foundation on the market, anywhere! Apply in the morning and your makeup is still on and fresh looking in the evening. I never need to "fix" my makeup during the day. I have been using Fresh Air Makeup Base for 27 years. I have ventured to buy other products but I always come back to Fresh Air. It is hands down the best stuff ever.
I have to agree - why do y ou discontinue or make it so difficult for customers to buy the best foundation on the planet? I used Fresh Air from the time I was 18 years old. It was a lucky day when I finally found a great foundation in the right shade, as I am difficult to match. For 25 years, I went to the makeup counter and knew exactly what I needed. Then it was discontinued and I didn't buy it for 15 years. So happy to accidentaly discover it online. Please return it to the stores, it's awesome.
