Another day, another punchy-titled product from Estee Lauder … the DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Sheer Tint Release Moisturiser to be precise (it not concise), is a tinted moisturiser that I’ve been using on and off for years, and I was delighted to hear recently that it’s been reformulated and re-launched by Lauder.
It is, as it’s name suggests, a sheer tinted moisturiser, with a light cucumber scent (which I happen to really love, but your mileage might, as they say, vary), and an SPF of 15, which makes it ideal for a summer where sunshine can’t always be guaranteed.
What I do like about it is the colour-adjusting technology in the formula, on squeezing the product from the tube for the first time, you might be wondering where the tint actually is:
As it’s decidedly greige on first squeeze, but hold on:
Nope, still a bit grey, but it’s beginning to disappear, look:
As you rub the formula into your skin, the microscopic spheres containing the pigment burst, and begin to meld with your own skintone, becoming, eventually, a transparent veil of colour:
And when they say sheer, they’re really not kidding. I left Maurice the control mole there so you can see him in all his glory. This formula won’t cover up imperfections, and doesn’t layer to give more coverage, unlike the Chantecaille Just Skin I spoke about on Wednesday, but it will even out your skin tone rather nicely, and give you both a nice glow and a little protection from the sun without ever looking ashy, unless you have a very dark skin tone, that is.
It’s a great staple, personally I’d still want to use my regular moisturiser underneath, as I don’t really find it hydrating enough on my combination-dehydrated skin, but this is a classic product, and is great for foundation-phobics, as it simply enhances, without masking, the skin you already have. This new formulation is a little less grey than it used to be, but that’s about the only difference I can see to the original product.
The FIne Print: PR Sample, but I’ve bought many, many tubes of this in the dim and distant past.
