What shader would I use with Reshade to tone down whites that are to bright?

I've tried a couple but it seems that everything but the whites get darker :(

If the highlights of the game without reshade are clipping at all, they're impossible fully recover.

This is a screenshot with Reshade off and brightness as low as the game will allow.

As you can see, the whites are ridiculously bright.

Reinhard linear shader decreases the puncturing whites but it doesn't really tone it down. Reinhard in general is a good way of balancing the extreme contrasts in certain scenes.

The detail's lost there, as there's a lot of clipping. You'll never be able to fix that.

At most you can reduce the max white point so that it's more of a light grey blob instead of a white blob...

or brighten everything else so it's not as bad by contrast...

Note that those are some over-simplified changes. Take some time fine-tuning your game to make it look its best with your setup.
My personal take:
