Skin Care Review: Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

by Anonymous


Provides a immediate smooth, soft matt finish.


I'm 48 with combination skin,enlarged pores and midly uneven skin tone. The results are immediate- my skin looks instantly "refined" and feels satin smooth. I'm not sure that this product actually shrinks pores but it does provide an excellent finish for smooth application of foundation. In fact, while shopping for a new foundation this was the only product I was wearing and was actually, for the first time, and at age 48, complimented on my skin. I do really love this product, however, it doesn't provide any SPF and doesn't appear to contain any real ingredients that will actually exfoliate skin. This product seems to be more of an enhancer than a solution to problem skin. It is a good complimentary product to use in conjuction with other products as it doesn't irritate my skin, clog pores or interfere with the effectiveness of the other products I use.

More of an enhancer than a solution to problem skin.
