The Estee Edit Radiance Activator Review, Photos, Swatches

What the Brand Says

The Estee Edit Radiance Activator is a treat + prep + glow activator. It is made to give you a day moisture boost, and create an instant burst of brilliance, but it go way beyond highlighting. This moisturizer contains concentrated plant extracts like pink peony and sea lavender to make your skin beam with a "lit from within" look that you will want to show off to everyone. The Estee Edit Radiance Activator is made to make your skin feel hydrated, soft and supple, with a super glow either with or without makeup. 

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.
