Most Helpful Positive Review AMAZING multi-facet moisturizer!
I'm completely blown away by this product. Not only does it smell and feel great; I've not had any sort of negative reaction to it at all! I've got incredibly sensitive skin, (more skin allergies than I could possibly list) so to find something that works as it's advertised and that doesn't cause issue with my allergies is exciting. It is the most looked forward to part of my skin care routine. Had I realized I could have bought it here I would have saved the trip to the department store!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Worth the Cost
I used this product a few minutes after washing my face right after I wake up and right before I go to bed. I prefer to use it over night because it made my skin oily when I used it in the morning. It claims to last 24 hours but my skin would be dry in patches by the end of the day. It has a cucumber scent that sometimes gave me a headache.

I do like this moisturizer but I honestly prefer the gel. my skin is very complicated and annoying and this moisturizer my skin can tolerate most times. I have been using this same brand for two years and will continue to use until I find something better. the size it's ridiculous for what I pay for but oh well my skin well being deserves it.
Love it! Very lightweight and calming on skin.
Combination Skin from Albany, NY
I absolutely love this moisturizer! I have truly combination skin. Very oily at times but also dry at times and sometimes both... I am also still acne-prone even though I am in my 40s. My skin doesn't always have the greatest texture either, big pores and dark/light spots. This moisturizer somehow fixes everything for me. Sometimes I don't even wear foundation over it. It's as if it was made for my skin. As a plus, the light cucumber scent is great and not overpowering at all. The only con is it's so wonderfully lightweight that it's not really moisturizing enough for Upstate NY winters. (I use a different moisturizer in the winter.) I really don't have a problem with this though. I think that if the Estee Lauder Daywear were more moisturizing, I wouldn't be able to use it in the summer because my skin is really finicky about the level of moisture it wants depending on temperature/humidity. Bottom line is I highly recommend this Este Lauder Daywear for pretty much everyone except people who have very dry skin year-round.

I have really enjoyed this moisturizer. It is rich, but absorbs really quickly. No issues with dryness, just a really nice moisturizer!
Cdallke78 from Martinsburg, WV
This lotion is just as described. Been using for a while, feels so smooth without greasy feeling. I'm oily and I love it. Stay smooth too!
Deb from Houston
It's really moisturizing
no problems! (combination+acneprone skin)
Sota from Meridian, MS
i read reviews about this not being good with acne and i have on/off bad breakouts (like cystic, hormonal) and it doesn't affect the current acne or make me breakout anymore. it's actually really soft and cool feeling. it can be "greasy" if you have oily skin but i just add a little bit and pat it in and no problem!
Good for non-demanding skin
Oksana from Dallas, TX
I think this is a solid moisturizer for skin without significant concerns. It moisturizes well and it doesn't add greasiness even to oily-combination skin. I give it 4 stars just because it's a rather basic product in my mind and probably wouldn't do any miracles for skin with wrinkles or lost elasticity. It smells like an SPF creme (but more subtly) and has the same texture. However, I haven't had any issues with white residue neither while application nor throughout the day. Works well as a part of skincare routine so you can totally use it if you like layering products. However, if you prefer applying only a moisturizer alone, in colder weather/in case of drier skin you might want smth more nourishing (or put a serum underneath). Overall, I'm currently looking for a new day moisturizer and trying out several types (incl some of EL), and this particular one most likely is going to be the winner for me.
Best moisturizer ever
Carol v from Indio California
I'm Obsessed with this cream, I've Purchase many other creams like Protini, Dermalogica rich cream, skinfix, Cera Ve, Olay Regenerates and etc. But I still love the Day Wear, I love the texture and how it feels in my skin. I'm normal to dry skin
Missy from NoHo, CA
My skin is dry, and after applying this product, my skin felt oily. Even the smallest amount of product made my skin feel oily. I'm also not too thrilled with the scent, it smells too much like sunscreen.
Didn't love it
Ashley from St Louis, MO
I really wanted to love this moisture cream but it made my skin feel oily and greasy for hours after applying. I didn't feel moisturized, I just felt greasy and gross. I tried using a little less of it to see if it helped ease the greasy feeling but it didn't. It's just not the right moisturizer for my skin (dry/combination).
HappyNAZ from AZ
I'm love this creme. I never had one that made my skin feel so hydrated, refreshed and young.
Wonderful product, wish it was cruelty free
Azadeh from Olive Branch, MS
I got this as a gift, and the first thing I loved about it is the smell. It was so fresh! The application went on smooth and didn't feel greasy at all. The added bonus of having a little sunblock was great. The only reason I will not be getting this again is that the brand is not animal cruelty free. However, I will be watching to see if the policy changes. If so, this will be my go to product!
Obsessed with this moisturizer.
Coco from Tn
I love this! I buy it in bulk every time there is a sale. It has a very light cucumber scent that smells nice and isn't at all overpowering. It is very moisturizing without being buttery like my night creams. Always makes my foundation look great as well! Nice dewy look.
Smells great light weight
Jessi o from Texas
This product moisturizes well but, the smell to me, was the best part. It's a airy clean scent. Despite me wanting this product to be perfect, I'm not sure if it's what's causing my break out. I can't solely blame this creme due to the fact I break out every season change. I also can't rule it out either. So I'm giving it 4 stars.
a no from me
ana from new york
Way too greasy ! Made my skin feel wet and sticky and oily all day! Not worth it for the price
DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!
Isabel Selena from California
I bought this product because it was sale and I was looking for a nice good moisturizer. However, this lotion made me break out on my face like crazy. I had a straight allergic reaction to it. And now I'm hindsight reading some of the other reviews, it did this to other people too. Definitely not worth it!!! I'm taking it back ASAP
NOT FOR OILY SKIN
ajsmith3418 from Ohio
I bought this moisturizer because it was on sale, of the spf, and all the great reviews. However I wish I would have read all the reviewers that said this moisturizer wasn't great for oily skin before I made the purchase.
Overall it's an amazing moisturizer and would be good for dry skin but I can't tell you how greasy it made my skin. It looked like I wiped a piece of bacon on my forehead 2 hours after applying.
Aztlan818 from San Fernando Valley
I wanted to like this but was disappointed. cream is too greasy and I looked like a disco ball all day. not a good look.
great for dry sensitive skin
Amber from Nashville
I have dry and sensitive skin. This creme gives my face a nice glow. It is not sticky and feels great going on my face. This will be the only thing I will be using in the future.
Love the fresh scent!
Sally from Wisconsin
I have been using this for years ever since receiving a free sample.
Greasy!!!! Stay away if you have combination skin
DGO from Charleston
I have had this product for two days and if i can return it, i will. I washed my face and put this on, i left the house and then i looked in the mirror and my skin was ridiculously oily, shimmering, glowing, you name it, not the good type of glowing, it looked like i rubbed coconut oil on my face or something. This product is beyond greasy and it gets worse by the minute. I had to wash my face with two different products to get the oil off my face and honestly, it wasn't enough, had to use make-up remover wipes to get rid of it all. Terrible product to be labeled as an all day moisturizer for normal and combination skin, definitely not appropriate for my type of combination skin.
Foxy2005 from AR
I really like this moisturizer. It smoothes on my skin nicely, and absorbs pretty fast. I initially tried this in sample sizes, and loved it. It doesn't make me look greasy throughout the day. I do have dry skin, but this summer my skin has been normal. The packaging is cute and luxe.
MeowMittens from Colorado
This is a great daily moisturizer and its non greasy. However it did not work well with foundation and primer. Keeps skin smooth and soft.
Hydrates 5 min not 24 hrs.
Anne of Spokane from Spokane,wa
It pills with or without makeup...even Estée Lauder makeup.
Paidraigin from Ohio
I keep trying this because it often comes free with purchase, and I really enjoy Estée Lauder makeup. But this day cream pills even if I don't use makeup over it. But it's really bad with makeup. I've only had this happen with one other moisturizer ever. This does not happen with most moisturizer.
