Most Helpful Positive Review Pleasantly surprised!
I went to purchase Day Wear for combination skin for my daughter and ended up purchasing this for myself as well. I have large pores around my hose and stay oily in the usual areas. (Despite being 49 years old!) This did a nice job in controlling the shine in those areas, but not drying out my skin. And the smell is lovely!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for my skin
I have extremely oily skin. After three hours with this product, my skin became shiny and oily once more. I really wanted to like this, but it did not work as expected for me. I figure my skin is way too oily for this. In addition, I have noticed that EL serums work wonderfully on my skin but the moisturizers are too heavy which breaks me out a little. Nevertheless, I have gotten the best results from EL and will continue to be a loyal customer.

It's expensive but it works really well. I have combo oily skin, in my 30s, and live in the south where summers are hot and humid. My face feels so soft, even after working in the yard in the heat, and it's not oily at all. Worth the price tag.
ECONOMICAL FACE CREAM
tracy from OR
This day cream is affordable and comes with PF for daytime use. The skin will not be allergic after use. I will continue to use it.

I have very oily skin and this helps it from looking like an oil slick at the end of the day.
This is it.

This is the best moisturizer I've used for my combination skin. No more dry patches. No more oily skin. Lasts all day! WORTH IT!

the best for oily skin
village lady from FL
I have to return it. I had a horrible allergic reaction. My chin broke out in a cluster of 3 pimples; one the size of a small boil. My skin is super sensitive
Hiltz413 from Springfield, Massachusetts
I have oily skin and this made my skin matte perfection! I had no oily patches all day. I love this and I can't believe I waited this long to buy it.
works well for the summer humid months
Lisa from Michigan
I have oily skin and it gets worse in the summer months so I thought I'd try this and I really like it. I use Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place liquid foundation and the two blend well together. This product didn't keep me completely oil free but it significantly reduced it.
A OILY SKIN MUST HAVE!!!
Gin from Ocala florida
I have extremely oily skin and reside in Florida. Let's just say it's hot and humid 12 months of the year. I have use Estee Lauder double wear foundation for over a decade and it's absolutely amazing! About a year ago I purchased the Daywear Matte and absolutely love it! I can actually moisturize my face now! If you have excess sebum issues like myself, definitely try this! I have also tried using Belif Aqua Bomb, Tatcha and other high end moisturizers. This is definitely my go-to face cream. TY Estee Lauder! And thanks for creating the Perfectly clean line, LOVE IT!
KBear from Milwaukee, WI
My face soaks up this gel in seconds. It feels cool and refreshing upon application, and the scent is not at all overwhelming. I've only used it under makeup once, but I had flawless foundation for the whole day. Estée Lauder has become my beauty brand of choice!
I love it

perfect oily control I'm so happy

C from Miami
Great for oily skin. Love its texture. It is very moisturizing. Controls oil very well
Stick to regular day wear moisturizer
Jazz from WV
I've used the original Day Wear moisturizer for years. I have combo skin and I figured I would try the Matte version on my T-zone. It did control my oil but it also caused a lot of under the skin build up that lead to little bumps & texture in my T-zone specifically. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have combo skin like myself as it strips the natural moisture and can cause some unwanted texture to skin.
Donna STL from St. Louis MO
I simply can not recommend this product enough! After searching and searching for something that would help my oily skin I have finally found it! The smell is a light cucumber scent that quickly fades after applying and literally glides onto my skin. It is absorbed completely with no stickiness of heavy feeling afterwards. After several hours I still have no oil accumulated and my skin looks velvety, almost like I have makeup on. My pores are smaller and my skin actually feels softer. The product is sure to last a long time as you need so little with every use. This is a product I will never be without and so glad I discovered it, the answer to my trouble with oily skin has arrived!

I am on my second jar of this! I have extremely oily skin and this moisturizer along with the cleanser have changed my skin! This product is amazing!
Best oil control moisturizer!
Angie D. from Mount Pleasant, WI
This is the best oil control anti aging moisturizer that I've tried and I have tried a lot! Still do have shine mid day, but not nearly as much.
Caught my wife using this.....
Rob E. from Denver, CO
I have used DayWear Matte daily for at least five years, and my wife would note that my complexion was free from any sign of wrinkles or aging. This moisturizer feels great on my skin and I feel it lasts all day without looking too shiny.
The other day, I caught my wife using this for her morning routine, and now she has stopped using her daily moisturizer in preference to DayWear Matte. I guess I'll order online for both of us, from now on.
The best moisturizer I've used for my extremely oily skin
BraxtonA from Atlanta, GA
I've tried tons of moisturizers and NONE have worked as well as this one. The biggest PROs about this product is that it actually does mattify and minimize shine as it says it does. It's the perfect balance between moisture and oil control. It goes on smooth and doesn't cause tugging on the skin or make the skin tacky. A little goes a long way so the higher price is more manageable. To avoid contaminating the product I pour a small amount in the palm of my hand instead of using my fingers and all is well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for anyone who has oily, acne prone skin.
Just as expected!
Gabby V. from Dallas, TX
I've always loved EL products. I read the reviews for this product and thought I would try it. I' in my early forties and I was looking for something to help with the oiliness on my face as the day progresses. I was so happy when I saw that this did the trick. By mid day my face would already be oily and would have to continue to pat my face down and of course my make up came with it. The very first day I tried this cream I was really surprised! Kept my face hydrated all day and had very minimal oil built up in my t-zone. What a difference from all the other oil-control creams I've used. I'm so happy I tried this product, it is a little on the pricy side but well with it!
The texture 😍
Amanda from Farmington, MI
Not 5 out of 5 stars because of the price, but in my heart I give it 5 stars. The texture is so thick and lovely, without leaving behind any grease whatsoever. The gel-like formula along with the cucumber feels so cooling.
Car from Miami, FL
Wonderful product. Love its texture and controls my oily skin very well. Highly recommend.
