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.

This is the perfect amount of moisture! I'm a combination skin type and can't handle a normal cream moisturizer. This soaks in and my face loves it.
Overall Very Good for Super Oily Skin
Chloe from New York
I'll start off by saying my skin is VERY sensitive and will dry out if I even look at the wrong product. At the same time it's SUPER oily. The oil control format is a game changer!!! It does dry my skin out a little if I use it everyday so I interchange it with the Neutragena's Hydroboost. It works so well at containing my oil throughout the day and my face is still pretty matte by the end of the day. I try to keep the usage for when I'm wearing makeup or not washing my hair that day (so my face doesn't add extra oil) because it is quite pricey and I find I need a use a little more than normal to cover my entire face and neck. But if you're super oily and looking for relief give this a try!
Love love love

This product is amazing for oily skin. It makes your skin feel mate without it drying your skin out. It has a pleasant clean smell. Will definitely be buying again!
Estée Lauder DayWear Matte Oil Control moisturizer
MzzzzJ from Michigan
I wanted to love this. It's lightweight, a light scent of cucumber, cooling gel with a hefty price tag to last only about 4 hours. So not quite worth it. Initial use I was impressed but after lunch time my forehead looked just as it normally does. Tried for a while and same only works for a few hours. Also, I was only using in my T-zone. But doesn't quite work for me.
I am switching to this
Ellie from Kansas city, MO
I have been using another brand of moisturizer for my morning. Because of my oily skin, I always use something based on gel type. I wanted to try something else and ordered this. It smells amazing, not too overwhelming. And its texture is very smooth and great on my skin. I am not switching to this because I ordered my second bottle.
Jamila from Delawere
I bought Daywear Sorbet, as it is oil-free, and I have oily combination skin. But on my forehead it looked very shiny and oily. And I ordered Daywear Matte, to use it only on forehead and nose. No more shine on forehead, I'm in love with it. Now I am combining these two creams and it looks very good.
It does its job in preventing oily shine, but do not give..
Anna from San Jose,CA
..the hydrating look as in the regular DayWear Moistrurizer. In order to help the face feel (and looked) hydrated, I had to use a larger amount of creme, which I cannot affort right now. So I'd prefer the regular one.
Great Oil Control
HB from NY
good for oily skin, nice and light.
Pretty jar but won't repurchase
Shosh from AK
My skin tends to be combination/oily, and I can be prone to some sheen. As I have entered my 40s, I find a facial moisturizer can be very beneficial. I was excited to try this one when it was on sale, since the matte function of it plus moisturizing properties sounded perfect.
The jar is gorgeous, and the product feels light going on. It absorbs very quickly, and I find myself using a lot more than I normally would with other facial moisturizers. The smell is light and pleasant and if I'm having a no makeup day, the overall look of my face is quite nice. Unfortunately, I've tried several foundations over this moisturizer of varying formulas, and the all end up caking on top of my skin and looking blotchy and uneven. So I'm going to finish this on my days off and not repurchase. It's almost gone after about a month anyway.

If you are looking for a moisturizer that will get rid of shine/redness and not give you adult pimples this is my recommendation. The fragrance of cucumber is not strong and does have a cooling sensation when applying. Make sure you see the words DayWear Matte when purchasing or you will be getting something else.
Luv estee from Mission, Texas
Just what I was looking for.
A great cream if you are ok with getting monthly.
JVS21 from NYC, NY
I've used the ReNutriv Lightweight daily and barely made a dent, it will last a while. However you need too much of the DWM cream to get the matte effect. I would say one large peanut sized amount is what I needed, so I went through this quickly. I have also tried using this by itself over my very drying astringent and by itself and it's the same thing. I do like the matte finish and the antioxidants which are nice in the summer, but I couldn't even see myself buying a vheap cream every month as if I need the money for other things I rather have a jar last a while. The ReNutriv lightweight is actually a better deal and I will be looking for a drugstore matte antioxidant cream.
Michele from Arlington
This product smells amazing and is so refreshing. A must have but as far as oil control, not so much. I wouldn't use this for that because you have to reapply too often. Doesn't stay matte very long. Stays matte about 1 hour, isn't very good for that.

I have very oily skin and have tried a lot of different products. This really works, it left my skin feeling soft and my face was not oily at all. It is not drying either.
Summer favorite cream

I especially like to use this cream in summer, it is refreshing and not greasy
Double ware matte
Kat from Princeton WV
Amazing !! Definitely does everything it says !! I try lots of different skincare products. I always come right back to this, nothing works better for my skin !
Cah from Alabama
Even though the oil-control is nice, I like the original better. I feel like this one leaves a weird film on my face and you can rub it off and it gets... crumbly? I almost feel as if my face doesn't feel as clean after applying. I religiously use Estée Lauder for my skincare, but I'm not sure if I would buy this again.
It is perfect for me.

When I applied it on my face, it absorbs quickly
Lisa from Plano Texas
By far the best face lotion I've ever used. I have large pores, oily by nature skin and even at 53 I still get pimples. Using this lotion keeps my face oil free and feely clean all day. I've tried almost everything on the market and can't live without this Matte Daytime.
LeAnn from Florence, AL
This is one of the best moisturizers I've used. It's a very light feeling moisture and helps keep my problem areas from becoming too oily throughout the day.
Best Oil-Control Cream
Z from NM
I have extremely oily skin and have tried all kinds of oil-control products including tea-tree creams. But this one has been the best and it's the only one I re-purchased. It keeps my skin clean and dry for several hours in summer and most of the day in winter. LOVE it.
Love this product!!
Kbrake from Amarillo, TX
Absolutely love this product. I apply it each morning prior to makeup. It is cooling and light. It dries quickly and leaves my skin moisturized without leading to oily skin by the end of the day.
Great moisturizer for oily skin
Bb from MD
Been using this product for months. It's very lightweight and my oily skin responds well to it. It does prevent my skin from looking oily and shiny. Beware of the smell.

Light on the face and refreshing morning routine, my skin looks amazing and rehydrated all day long
