Skin Care Review: Estee Lauder Idealist Micro-D

by Sammie, Little Rock, AR

Adverse Effects

At-home alternative to micro-dermabrasion.

Intense heat sensation on application.

I agree with Tina from Portland, OR on the adverse effect of the Estee Lauder Idealist Micro-D. I have the same exact reaction from the product as she did, and the heat sensation on my face felt like it was on fire, almost as soon as I applied the product on my face. I had to wash it off almost immediately with cool water. I then used the Idealist Skin Refinisher to try to calm my face, but damage was already done. My face looked like I had a rash-like allergic reaction to the product.

I have used other Estee Lauder skincare products, but nothing compares to this horrible experience with the Idealist Micro-D.

The only consolation for me is that I did not pay for this product, but had received it as a gift with purchase.

Do not recommend, but get a sample size if you want.
