Estee Lauder DayWear BB Crème Review

BB Creams are having their moment, although I suspect this one from Estee Lauder will stick around for a while yet. Having changed the original BB from Blemish Balm to Beauty Benefit, this particular BB Cream promises to protect skin while giving it an instant, even-toned, healthy look – no mean feat for a beauty product.

With a formula packed full of anti-oxidants like vitamin’s C and E, as well as the all-important SPF35, Estee Lauder has definitely ticked the box for protecting. However, what really makes this BB Cream stand out is the effect it has on your complexion. It illuminates skin and gives it a natural-looking shimmer.

Unlike some of the other BB Creams, this one has a light texture and is easy to apply. You only need a very small amount and you might need concealer to touch up blemishes still, but this could easily replace your foundation in the summer if you want lighter coverage.

If you have oily skin, this is a great beauty product. However, if you have dry to combination skin you will definitely need to apply a healthy amount of moisturiser underneath if you wearing this every day as the formula doesn’t give skin much hydration.

Estee Lauder’s DayWear BB Crème is £32 and available from

Rating: 7/10 – I don’t think BB Creams are for everyone, especially if you already wear tinted moisturiser, primer, foundation etc as it’s just another cream to apply. However, if you don’t tend to wear much this one from Estee Lauder is perfect for giving your complexion an instant boost.
