Skin Care Review: Estee Lauder Idealist Skin Refinisher

by Vasiliki Mela

Adverse Effects

very smooth, radiant skin, no oiliness

dryness on my cheeks, white heads, pimples

I was very impressed when I tried it on my skin at the store so I decided to buy it. I loved it at first as it made my skin look radiant and not oily at all. When it started drying the skin on my cheeks I though it was irrelevant. But then I got some really small white heads (quite different from the ones I usually get) and when I limited its use on my T-zone I got a horribly deep pimple on my nose. Please note that it was the first beauty product ever to give me a bad reaction. It was very expensive and I had to give it away.

not for sensitive skin
