When I started taking care of my skin in a serious manner (which must be about three decades ago now J),my first discovery were Estee Lauder Products. I was fascinated by the brand, plus, they were sold in beautiful perfumeries and department stores, by extremely nice ladies in beautyful uniforms, who knew just EVERYTHING about skincare. Like it was in those days. All department stores had a special area with individual stands where all the “big brands” (well, the luxury ones) had their own stand.
I personally started my professional cosmetic career at Lauder, so there will always be this “first love” feeling about their products.
Daywear has been one of their (meanwhile classic) most popular products/series for years. And there’s a reason for that : it’s just a beautiful allrounder, that all of us can use and that is packed with beautiful skin-beneficial ingredients that will do so much good to any skin type.
The truth is, I’ve loved this product ever since day one. Several textures are available, from which I have tested two : one adressing skins that tend to be on the dryer side, the other being a lightweight formula for combination skin types. I love them both but the one for combo skin defenitely is my favorite version. LIGHT, WEIGHTLESS & HYDRATING, leaving skin incredibly comfortable.
Like I said, skin beneficial ingredients are present in the form of many ANTI-OXIDANTS that will play a CELL PROTECTING role when you use this product. Plus a SPF 15, which may not be really high, but will protect your skin sufficiently during a “normal” office day. So that’s why for me, you can never go wrong with a daywear product.
And last but not least : the SMELL…… Ahhhhh, this is soooo beautyful. Well, that is, if you like the freshness of cucumbers, because all products in the Daywear range have this very light, but clearly perceptible cucumber smell, which I absolutely do love. Fabulous!
Bottom line :if you are looking for a leightweight, yet comfortable all-in-one product, that will help prevent signs of ageing, both by giving you a cellular anti-oxidant protection as well as a light protection at the same time, consider this one.
Texture :depending on the version, from cream-gel over lightweight cream to richer cream. Very smooth.
Age :all ages, but especially 30-50
Skin types :all, depending on texture
Use :day, over a serum or alone
