I've been using this moisturizer (along with the DayWear Oil-Free SPF 25) for two years. It's a very good, lightweight gel that will leave your skin feeling very fresh, matte but still hydrated, but since it has no SPF in it, you have to top it off with another sunscreen. This product does exactly what it says - it keeps your skin matte throughout the day, but nothing more.

The jar packaging means that all the good ingredients and antioxidants break down with time since it will always be exposed to air. There are also a few ingredients towards the end of the ingredient list that can be very damaging to the skin - such as Laureth-4. While it didn't cause me any major breakouts, while I was using it I kept getting small bumps frequently, but I always thought they were from another skincare product. They went away once I stopped using the product, six months ago.

I don't think this is a bad moisturizer if all you're looking for is to keep your skin matte all day. But I definitely don't think it's worth the money if you consider the packaging and the fact that you'd have to buy another SPF product anyway. There are better moisturizers out there in better packaging and with better ingredients, so I won't be repurchasing this product in the future.

At first i was happy,cause it lasted 3 hours.The other moistures i tried(La Roche Posay mat effaclar,korres wild rose)didn't last 3 hours.Then i saw that the creme said 10 hours matte.So untrue.It should last at leat 6 hours.I recommend it because i haven't found anything better.If i find something that lasts 5-6 hours ,i will not buy it again.But i don't think so.I tried Clinique's pep start last month(which is a best seller) and it was very heavy for me.I gave it to my mother who has dry skin.

This is an extremely elegant light blue opaque cream gel with a natural satin-matte finish that last for many hours.

It is based on a volatile hydrocarbon oil and silicone oil and has a silicone elastomer added for further shine control. However, the real oil-absorption comes from Polypropylene wax. This also enables a pretty finish.
It has a very light feel and is lightly hydrating and after application it will absorb fully without leaving any oily residue on the skin.
Excellent for the summer or for warmer climate. Or for oilier skin type in the colder weather under make-up or as a night cream.

It has some very good anti-oxidants (EGT, EUK-134, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment and oil soluble vitamin C to name the most impressive ones) and anti-aging actives (Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract) too. Although, (even the combined) the concentration might unfortunately be very low.

The only negative I find with this product is the somewhat strong fragrance that does linger longer than necessary.

I do enjoy Estee Lauder but sometimes their fragrances are too strong or fake smelling. This Daywear Matte has a nice cucumber smell but it is slightly artificial. It did not irritate my skin, but some days the smell is overwhelming.

The product does feel nice on the skin, but it did not penetrate. It just sat on the surface. I waited 5 minutes to see if it would soak in prior to applying my foundation. The foundation (EL Doublewear) applied nicely, but after 2 hours, my foundation was starting to separate and cake up around my cheeks. It also did nothing to help my pores , they actually looked bigger. I did not stay matte, but rather more oily.

Try EL Clear Difference Gel if you are oily and want to stay matte.
