Skin Care Review: Estee Lauder Idealist

by Jen, Hollywood, CA USA

Adverse Effects

smooths, reduces redness, slightly diminishes pores

gave me white heads

I wish my skin liked this product! I bought a trial version online after reading so many great reviews about it. It delivered as promised goes on silky smooth creating a great base for makeup (I put it on after I moisturized), it reduces redness and I think its matte powdery finish makes pores look smaller too, so you almost don't need foundation or powder. However, after a few days of use, I noticed all these tiny little white heads forming along my cheeks. I reduced using it to just around my nose once a day and got a few smaller white heads (like little bumps) on the side of my nose. I guess this is not an uncommon reaction to the silca in the product, which is what makes your skin so smooth when you put it on. But white heads - ick. Not for me!

if you skin doesn't react badly, could be a great product
