Estee Lauder Daywear Anti-Oxidant BB Creme

Estee Lauder is the latest brand to bring out its own BB Crème.

As a quick re-cap, BB crème means ‘Blemish Balm’, or in Estee Lauders words, ‘Beauty Benefit’.

It is an oil free, light feeling crème for all skin types that protects, perfects and moisturises all in one hit.

With spring not too far away you may be thinking of ditching your heavy, winter foundation for a lighter, fresher product. If that is the case, may I suggest you give this beauty a try.

The Daywear Anti-Oxidant BB Crème can be worn alone or under foundation thanks to its sheer, natural coverage which minimises flaws and maximises your skins radiance.

One of the things I love most about this crème is the way in which it controls excess oil on the skin, inhibiting shine for a beautiful finish without looking heavy and greasy.

(I’m talking about you Garnier BB)

Also packed into this miracle-like product is Estee Lauder’s Super Anti-Oxidant Complex to protect your skin from the environment, light reflective pearls and sheer pigments to help perfect the skin and barrier boosting lipids to provide deep, lasting moisturisation.

Oh and to top it all off it also has an SPF of 35.

I’ve tried several BB crèmes and this is by far and away my favourite, as well as being the most expensive at £32 for 30ml.


The formula is perfect for my oily skin, allowing me to finally enjoy the benefit’s of BB crèmes without the unwanted shiny appearance which generally occurs, requires constant blotting!

I tried and swatched the crème in ‘light’ though as you can see it is not really that light and subsequently required quite a bit of blending.

 That said, once blended it melted into my skin to create a light and flawless coverage which brightened up my skin and gave it a lovely warm glow.

Unlike many other cremes it had a gorgeous, fresh delicate fragrance which reminded me of cucumber.

Estee Lauder’s Daywear Anti-Oxidant BB Crème is certainly a treat for your face and is available now.


  1. very nice, but definatly way over priced

  2. EL tinted moisturizer with antioxidants has been a staple for me the last couple of years. I'm excited to see how this one compares! Thanks for the review!

  3. Maybelline has launched a BB cream that they call as "Bright Benefit" say is a "do-all".. with like 8 kinda benefits

    You can find the link here:

    It sells real cheap for 200INR, that is less than 3GBP.
    MayB dsnt sell it in UK yet, i think..

    I dont buy the products MayB sells in India, as honestly i do find quality differences.( yeah, i know i sound crazy!, but it's true)

  4. I really want to try a BB cream but this one eventhough it looks good is so expensive :/
    Nice post :D

    Beautiful Dreams

  5. Ooh I'd love to try this - might pick up a sample! I also tried the Garnier one and though it had put me off BB creams for life! This sounds like it sorts out the problems of the Garnier version, though.


  6. I've tried a couple of BB creams so far and I have been a little disappointed as they have been so hyped up. I guess I will have to keep trying until I find the one for me!

  7. This shade looks really dark! I haven't tried any BB Creams yet, not sure if I'm willing to pay this much for one.

  8. I had a mini size of this from work, and really loved it- it smells soo fresh and gave a gorgeous radiant finish. Very sheer though and I don't think I wore it out without foundation over the top. Reassured me how lovely BB creams can be though, after hating the Garnier one!
