Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher.
When I picked up this little bottle of goodness from Boots some time ago, I really wasn’t aware of what it actually did. In an attempt to avoid the over-enthusiastic sales assistant, I bought it and went on my way (which is how all great shopping experiences begin).
I first thought this was a serum, a pore minimising version of my favourite Advanced Night Repair, but I got that and so much more.
This “Skin Refinisher” banishes any flaky, dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, meaning within seconds the texture and appearance of skin is much smoother and flawless looking. Expecting a serum, I was really (but pleasantly) surprised when I first slathered this on – my skin immediately felt like I had applied the very best primer. It’s not at all harsh, you don’t feel it on your skin and it works to encourage skin cell renewal so skin is looking healthier than ever.
I found from first use my skin looked really clear and felt, to quote someone on Twitter, like a cloud.
Along with making my skin look like a 3-year olds, Idealist is also meant to help reduce dark marks so hopefully some of my blemish scars will be cleared up too.
It’s a great little product and now I have it, I don’t imagine a day will go by where I won’t be patting this on. I apply it before moisturiser for perfect looking skin.
Have you tried Idealist or perhaps something similar? What are your tricks for minimising pores?
