What the Brand Says
All of these seemed like a dream to me, although with all products I was a little wary of the claims when it came in from the brand for me to review. It comes in a white cardboard box with black lettering and blue accents. The bottle inside looks a bit like a few of the Amazon skincare products I've gotten (for example the Azure Naturals Vitamin C Skincare) but that isn't a bad thing. It has a shiny plastic base as well as lid and a white body. Under the lid is a push down dispenser.
To use, apply morning and night like any lotion, in circular directions applying to the whole face (but of course not the eyes). I was a little surprised that when I pushed some out of the dispenser that it isn't a pure white but rather a cream color as you can see in the swatch above (upper right). It does provide a bit of coverage (less though than even a tinted moisturizer like Exuviance tinted sunscreen) and has a whole lot of shimmer once rubbed into the skin.
Verdict: After letting it absorb into my skin I was happy to see that no residue was left behind even when I tried my scraping test I didn't get anything. This Estee Edit Radiance Activator doesn't exactly feel like a moisturizer because although it leaves my skin sparkly, it also gives it a matte finish. It isn't drying but not exactly moisturizing like I expected. Overall though a good product for before makeup, not something I'd put on at night though because I prefer my nighttime skincare to be very heavy on the moisture.
So So on Moisture
