I purchased this sunscreen and have been using it for the past 3 weeks. I have had no issues with it - no strong scent, very gentle, not sticky, and does not leave a white cast unlike other sunscreens I have used in the past. My skin is oily and acne-prone, the formula did not break me out, and a little goes a long way for me. Will definitely repurchase again.
I really like this sunscreen because of the high SPF and because it's not greasy at all. It's NOT a moisturizer, so you can wear it over your regular moisturizer. It's very soft and silky. I love the scent; I can actually smell it while I'm out running around town. If you don't like scented products, then you probably won't like this, because the scent does stay with you. My only complaint is that it comes in a very small bottle. I find myself using it sparingly so that I don't use it up too quickly.
I bought this to wear when I go for my daily walks. I don't want anything with any tint or it gets all over my hat and headband and it runs when I sweat. I used it on my face, neck and chest. I guess I used it too sparingly because I did get a little bit of a tan. Not much, but you could tell I got some sun exposure. This was even with a hat.
Love it so much, I don't want to make up a lot but I worry on the sign of age if my face contact to the sun shine, I hate sticky and humid feeling with other sun screen product, this daywear satisfies almost my worries! Love it and thank you Estée Lauder
I am very disappointed in this product. I do not believe it is an SPF 50. I wore it on two bike rides and both times my skin burned. I had better performance from regular day wear (spf 15 & 25). This is going back to the store. Disappointing. EL really needs a strong sun screen (perhaps with zinc).
This product is amazing... I have allergy to a lot of thing including day creams with UV defense and I generally have acnes the day after I use them; however, I did not have any red spots, rashes or acnes after I use it...
This is the first cream that my skin does not react in a bad way...
I got this product when I purchased Night Repair Serum for my mum in The Bay. Now I just can't live without it. Actually my normal cream is from Clinique which is good enough for my facial moisturizing, I apply this product on top of clinique gel every day, i feel my skin get better with less pimples(almost no pimple now). I really love this product.
This is one skincare product that every woman should have. I did some damage in my teens and 20s with careless sun exposure, and I am now meticulous about sunscreen. I have tried numerous face sunscreens, and this is one of my absolute favorites! I apply it over my day cream (which has SPF) for added protection. I like the addition of antioxidants in this product. It's light and sheer, and blends in easily. And, it doesn't "pill" up, like some products do. I also appreciate that this sunscreen comes in this type of packaging. Open jars allow quick degradation of the active ingredients, so I like that this sunscreen comes in an opaque tube. I purchased one for my mom, too. She has been a faithful Lauder customer for over 30 years, and I am happy to introduce her to this new skincare gem.
Goes on like sun tan lotion. I found that I needed a lot to cover my face and neck and the bottle is small, so I dab a bit of it with the regular day wear cream or another facial moisturizer to "stretch" the product . Does not irritate my eyes. Smells nice. Not greasy.
Thank you EL for this well formulated DayWear product that makes my mornings easier and better! I am confident my skin is nourished and protected all day with an abundance of antioxidants and plenty of UV protection. I appreciate that it is in a tube instead of a jar which helps keep all the goodies away from light, air and contamination. It is the perfect size; not too small for home use and perfect for traveling. I live in a warm and humid climate and have not needed to add a moisturizer this summer. With winter use will add moisturizer if needed. I am a baby boomer and I want it ALL and EL has delivered it!
I was very skeptical about buying this product because the daywear line has always been too oily and sticky for my combination/sensitive/acne prone skin. However, I really wanted a nice makeup base with a high spf.
When I first put it on, it was amazing!!! It was a lot thinner than I had expected for a product with 50 spf!!! Plus it smelled great, like all daywear products. The best part is that it made my foundation go on a lot smoother and easier!!! After wearing this, my face didn't feel oily or sticky or caked on. It just nice and breathable.
However, I will say that after the first hour my face was oily so I had to dab my face with a oil absorbing sheet. But, after that first dab, my face wasn't oily for a long time. So basically, I only had to dab twice during an 8 hour day. Which is quite good considering it has 50 spf in it!!!!!
I am really happy with this product! I usually test out products for at least half a month before posting a review but I was so excited and surprised by this product that I decided it was enough after just 3 days!
Finally a great day moisturizer with a high SPF. I like/need a higher spf so I've always had to add in another tep but with this i get a great moisturizer with the high spf. LOVE IT great cucumber scent too.
Best For combination skin, prone to acne and eczema
An Estée Lauder specialist recommended this product for me. I have eczema and skin that breaks out easily from acne. Sunscreens causes eczema flares. And if the cream is too oily, then I break out. I tried this product and found it was perfect. No eczema and no breaking out. It is light, fresh with a cucumber scent. I generally don't like greasy or oily cream. But this one is very light and absorbs quickly I without the greasy feeling. I am in love with this product and would highly recommend to anyone who needs SPF protection and a daily moisturizer.
I was pleasantly surprised with how lightweight and smooth in consistency this product is. Most high SPF products tend to leave a shiny finish, however this base keeps the shine to a minimum. I enjoy the scent of the DayWear line, however if scent is an issue, I found the fragrance hardly noticeable. I will repurchase in the future.
