Ive only been using Idealist for a week....and Im mainly using it on a pre cancerous area that is red on my nose that I had "frozen" off (cyro surgery) over a month ago. The results Ive seen in just 7 days are miraculous!! It is very moisturizing and emoillent......absolutley LOVE it!! Thank you Etsee Lauder!!!
This smooth toner is my first line of defense for reducing the appearance of unsightly brown flaws. I have been using it twice a day for about six weeks and I do see a definite improvement. I started using it all over my face but now I just use it on targeted areas. Works great!
Love Love Love~~! <3 <3 <3 I L-O-V-E and adore Idealist!! I use this illuminator before I put on my moisturizer- I can clearly see the difference the days when I put on Idealist vs. not- I have very oily skin, and it's not on description, but this product makes my face very matte and less shiny throughout whole the day compare to the days when I do not use the product- The Idealist gives my face a soft glow and a clean and fresh look- During summer, I skip moisturizer and just put on the Idealist and it still gives me the perfect matte and clean and neat look- I loveeeee this product!
At 55, my skin had the common problems of blotchiness, dull, age spots, etc. I ran out of my usual regimen products and used the sample of this I had received. I was very surprised that just in the few days I was using the sample, I saw improvement in my skin, which resulted in my purchasing the full size and loving it. My skin looks brighter, less red and dull blotches. I know there are ingredients that make your skin "look" more luminous in this and that helps while you're wearing it. But after simply cleansing, I can tell that my face looks clearer and brighter. Every little bit helps! :)
In my experience, this DOES the job at erasing acne marks, no doubt and I highly recommend it for that specific use. I had a messy break out that left some spots and they were very effectively faded after a month. Very little goes a very long way, just two drops from the pump is enough to cover my face. However: this product can be drying and irritating in the long term. I use it only at night on top of my ANR serum, but even with that, I feel it can be drying after a few days, so I just do not use it continuously, or only use it on a spot when needed.
I received this product in a gift package. I am treated for rosacea by a dermatologist so I am careful about what I use on my skin. My rosacea is mostly under control, but I am usually red for a while after washing and moisturizing my skin. Not with this product, no signs of redness. I used it because I understood it was helpful for red skin, but it has completely improved my overall complexion. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and I love it. I don't try multiple products because I worry about irritation, I am so glad I gave this a try.
I am 77+ and was getting dark spots on my face and tried the product. It has either lightened or complete removed the spots on my face and I highly recommend it to any one who has the same problem . It is smooth and creamy and easily applied and feels good on the skin. I apply it after cleaning my face and then apply the balance of my nightly items of Esteelauder products.
Amazing results when paired with ANR. I received a deluxe trail size after 2 weeks of using the trail size I immediately purchased the BIG 3.4oz size bottle of this. This stuff is amazing dark spots, redness, pore size all went down. I did use it on a hypigmentation circle that was pretty dark by 3 months this spot is about 2 shades lighter. I can only hope this product will continue providing results. Fantastic!!! *Note I did combine this with ANR too.
After a month, this "fast acting" serum has done absolutely nothing for me. I purchased it on the advise of an Estee Lauder Beauty Consultant to get rid of the dark spots and red marks. It did absolutely nothing for me. When I applied it, it felt more like makeup than a serum on my face. I do not like this product at all. Unfortunately, none of the Estee Lauder skincare items I've tried have lived up to their claims. I absolutely love their makeup and unless they change formulas, will use their eyeliner, shadow and lipstick forever. Well worth the money, but no so with the skincare.
I bought this product on recommendation of the attendant but I truly resent why did I spend so much money on this product. I used it for more than four months with twice application, as was recommended by the beauty consultant at Estée launders. However, there was no effect at all. So I do not recommend this serum to anyone.
I am currently using the Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator and I really love it. It makes my skin very smooth and does help to make my skin looking even. The bottle with the pump is simply perfect! Thank you Estee Lauder!
I love this Even Skintone Illuminator because it does what it is suppose to do. It removes the brown spots from your face or hands. It may take a couple of weeks to see a change but with continued use you will see the spots diminish.
