    Best skin product out there-miracle for your skin

    This is BY FAR the best skin product out there. I have large pores and combination skin, I am 31 yrs. old and have never had perfect smooth flawless skin, I always have occasional breakouts, large pores, uneven skin color, etc, etc. A few years ago I tried a sample of this on one side of my face (through a magazine insert) and I was so impressed with how my skin felt that I went out and bought a...read more bottle. Within 2 weeks my skin was flawless, I used it every morning & every evening before bed. At first it just made my skin feel very soft and smooth but after 2 weeks my pores were nearly invisible, I was not getting any occasional breakouts that I have ALWAYS gotten (especially around that time of the month) and it was just a MIRACLE. The 1 oz. bottle lasted me about a month so I bought another one when my bottle got low. I continued using it for several months and had beautiful skin, until I just couldn't afford to pay $50 per month anymore for a bottle. So basically, the ONLY DOWNFALL IS that once you stop using it, your skin will go back to how it was before within a few days. So, in recent years I have only bought one or two bottles a year and then I can have great skin for a month or so but once I run out, my skin is back to the same problems. I only wish I could afford to buy it EVERY MONTHlike I used to because it is DEFINITELY WORTH IT. I have tried all the products similar to this from items you can buy at places like CVS for about $7-$20 to items at Sephora and Macy's for up to $150 and this is by far THE BEST. I definitely recommend if you can afford it, so I will give it 10 stars because it is the only product that does what it says (and it actually keeps you from breaking out, which is not one of its claims, but it really keeps your skin clear as well)-you must use it ritually though to get results & keep those good results, and it smells kind of nice too, I should deduct a star for the fact that it is SO EXPENSIVE, but considering that it is a MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE, then I guess thats the price we have to pay. A good thing to ask for on your Christmas list. Also, it comes in a larger bottle that you actually save money if you buy the larger size but I always just bought the one ounce size. I also want to add ONE CAUTION-I always bought my Idealist from Macy's and always had fantastic results. Then once I bought it from a Marketplace seller on Amazon and it was a few dollars less than I usually pay. Anyway, it came to me in a box from China so I was suspicious immediately but I used it anyway and it did not work-it had the same smell and feel but after a few weeks use and no visible results, I complained to the seller and told them I thought it may be counterfeit and something was obviously wrong with the formula, luckily they gave me a full refund, but just BUYER BEWARE, only buy this from a trusted reputable store because if you buy anywhere else, who knows, they may be filling up the bottle with a cheap imitation version, but someone like me knew that it was not right since I had used it for years and this was the only time I did not see results, so if you buy it from somewhere and don't see results, GET A REFUND and go buy from a department store where you can be rest assure dthe product is ORIGINAL. — 7 years ago

    WOW!

    WOW! A product that actually does what it says! Estee Lauder products have definitely come through for my hormonal skin problems. Not only have the online advisers at esteelauder.com helped me tremendously, but their products are amazing! I love this product. It is one I could not live without. Before I started using this product, I had breakouts in my lower cheek area and my skin looked dul...read morel. I tried everything with no luck. But this products, gently exfoliates my skin throughout the day keeping it smooth, clear, and healthy looking. I have to say, the texture is silky, and a lot like a makeup primer. I don't even need to use a makeup primer because this product is so versatile. Love, Love, Love Idealist, skin Refinsher, if you are scared to try it, go for it! Use the whole bottle, one pump daily, and see the results. My skin is as smooth and glowing as the models in the add! — 7 years ago

    Works great!

    It really does make your skin look great. I have oily skin and large pores, and I swear this makes them appear smaller. It's spendy, but you don't use much for your face — 7 years ago

    Great Product!

    I have been using this for about a month. The texture of my skin is smooth and I swear the size of my pores have gotten smaller. I use this AM and PM. I definately would recommend. — 7 years ago

    Ideal Skin

    Idealist feels so smooth on your skin. If you put it on before your moisturizer, it makes your foundation glide on. But the reason I like it more is that it evens out my skintone, no redness, no blotchiness. When you use Idealist, the result is your ideal skin. — 7 years ago

    I saw a difference

    I bought this on the advice of the makeup consult I had done. Wasn't expecting that much - but after several weeks I did notice that the skin on my face looked better - enough that I would shell out money to buy more. — 7 years ago

    Pore shrinker!

    I have used many products that claim to shrink the pores but this stuff really works. I've always had very large pores and very oily skin, and in the last month of using this product I have noticed a significant reduction in the size of them. My skin also looks smoother and more even toned and I rearely get a pimple anymore! This stuff is the greatest!! — 7 years ago
