Speed Review: Estee Lauder Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-oxidant Lotion SPF 15 for Oily Skin

I'm very strict in my approach to skincare, applying SPF on a daily basis even when it's raining and, vain as it may sound given all the other healthcare effects, not wanting wrinkles is my main reason for not smoking. I truly believe that these are two of the main causes of premature aging so when I was sent a release about Estee Lauder's new range, it caught my attention. The range is based on the belief that environmental exposure is the first cause of damage to the skin, with five key sources of free radicals accelerating the rate of premature aging, namely UV Exposure, Smoke, Pollution, Irritation and Metabolism. Anti-oxidants are regarded as our strongest weapon against free radicals hence the focus upon them in this range.

Launched at the start of January, I was sent a bottle of Estee Lauder's new anti-oxidant & UV protection skincare to try. Being for oily skin, I handed the sample to one of my trusted testers (as regular readers will know, I suffer from dehydrated and sensitive skin). Here are her thoughts...

My first impression was that the packaging is functional, with a pump which helps to dispense the right amount without wastage. One thing about the packaging is that it is not see-through and therefore you can't see how much product is left in the bottle- not really a big problem though.

The product itself is very nice. It absorbs quickly and easily without leaving a feeling of stickiness or shine.

My overall thoughts are that the product is very good, however, people with oily skin like myself should not expect miracles as the moisturiser makes the skin feel nice but it cannot change its texture. I would definitely recommend for use in the summer when we all wear less makeup, especially in hot climates. I believe it depends on the skin and what foundation/powder is used but I couldn't wear it with foundation. It makes the skin feel great but only if used on its own. Applying foundation as well made my skin feel oily and clogged my pores. I normally use high end brands and taking my experience of this into account, I'd be prepared to spend between £25-£35 on this.
