Skin Care Review: estee lauder idealist skin refinisher

by Lisa Davis, White Lake, MI USA

No effect

I wish I could say that I have experienced some benefits! It smells nice...

No real draw backs other than the lack of effect!

This is a light "skin refinisher" to use beneath moisturiser. It tingles slightly on application, and gives a light, silky coverage. However, I have not noticed any discernable improvement in my skin condition, even under lights and a good magnifying mirror. I was hoping for some noticable reduction in the size of pores around nose and chin, and a reduction in some small blemishes. The sales assistant told me that I could expect a 60% improvement within a week. When I read the product literature, the claims of improvement were much more modest. However, I cannot recommend this product because I have discovered no benefit from it.

Save your money!
