Estée Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint Release Moisturizer: A Product by Any Other Name…


Whoa! The name seems to say it all – and suggest that this supposed mere moisturizer does it all! I try to avoid a full-coverage foundation at all costs, especially during the summer months (I prefer my actual skin to show through, rather than boast a mask of makeup, which just makes you look worse in the long run).

While Estée Lauder’s DayWear has the packaging and labeling of a simple SPF 15-infused moisturizer, it does so much more. Squeeze just a small dollop of the slightly grainy, milk-colored lotion (with a nice unimposing yet fragrant scent) onto your fingertip and blend all over your face – since it’s colorless you can even be haphazard about it. You’ll notice instant evening of skin tone and increased radiance. It’s hydrating without feeling like you just slathered your face in moisturizer – and non-greasy. Ideal for hot summer days when you don’t even want to get near the foundation, but still want to show your glowing face outside! At Estée Lauder for $43.

  1. Cool, I was wondering if this moisturizer had some kind of yellow/beige/orange tint to it since it says “sheer tint release” but great to know it’s nothing like that! I’ve also been looking for something light for the summer months. Thanks so much for the review!
