My mom got into Estee Lauder BB Creams before I did, so I trusted her enthusiasm when I tested out the Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream. This was one of my companions when I was at Bahamas, as I needed to keep my face protected from the sun, give an illusion of smooth skin, and keep my skin hydrated.
This is my first dip into using Estee Lauder products…is that weird? My mom is a huge Estee Lauder nut but I was never into it, though I’ve been reading raving reviews on their lipsticks. The DayWear BB Cream I have is in the colour Light/Medium. When I first squeezed a pea sized amount on the back of my hand, I thought the colour was a bit too tan for me, but as I spread it across my face, the colour blended into my skin realllllly well.
The texture of the BB Cream is slightly thicker than a night moisture (perhaps,) and easy to blend and layer over the skin without any cakey feeling. I think it enhanced my skin and covered only minor specs and bits that I would normally conceal. I wouldn’t use it in lieu of a concealer if I had a bad pimple explosion, but the DayWear BB Cream speaks for itself; it’s excellent for daytime daily wear. The scent is a bit cucumbery.
Another brownie point goes to its long lasting-ness. When I wore it in the Bahamas (in 22-26 degree weather,) the BB cream was still on my face after 8 hours of wear. I went snorkeling with it on and when I washed my face after, I still had the BB cream on. I needed a heavier cleanser for this product; the Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash couldn’t take it completely off. This is will be everyone (aka me and my mom’s) best friend when summer rolls around; if it withstood ocean water, sweat won’t destroy the BB Cream!
PS- I can’t find it on any online Canadian retailers, but perhaps the Bay has it? The one for sale at Sephora is the Clear Difference Complexion Prefecting BB Cream ($46 CAD.) You can purchase it via Amazon here though!
