It takes time but it works! I am suffering adult acne as I approach Mid-30s. This serum is slowly clearing all my acne scar over 2-3 weeks, and it does not cause more break out. My skin is looking better as a result. Almost no foundation is needed! I follow the instruction to use twice a day.
I used even skin tone illuminator serum for a year and since I used this serum people noticed about my skin, and told me my skin looks brighter. This serum made my skin looked brighter instantly so I think it really works but sometimes after I apply this serum my skin felt little dry so I had to apply oily cream after the serum.
I am not a person that likes to write product reviews, but since I love this product so much, I will post my very first review ever!! I am happy with the results I have had after using this product. I bought it mainly because of acne marks (uneven skin tone). I have had acne ever since I was a teen, and that has damaged my skin. After using the product, after only one use, I noticed results: my skin looks healthier and has a healthy glow to it, and it is soft and smooth to the touch. Before using Estee Lauder Idealist Serum, my skin was dull and if it ever shined it was because of oily residues since I have oily skin. I am so glad I made the decision to buy this product. I have been a fan of Estee Lauder's for over a year now, and I do not think that will change!! I recommend this product to anyone that wants to have healthier skin. If you have acne scarring/dark pigmentation, this may be the right product for you too. It worked for me, it could do the same for you!!
My skin stayed red all the time. I went to an Estee Lauder counter, my lady told me about this product. This is by far THE BEST THING I've done for my skin other than sunblock. Last night I ran into a lady I know and she told me she thought I was in my 30's. I'm 53 years old and this has helped my skin stay beautiful and controls the redness.
This stuff really works! I was getting worsening big red splotches all over my face. I was using stuff that I got from a dermatologist and it really wasn't working too well. Then my Estee Lauder makeup lady at a local store recommended this. I almost didn't get it due to the cost. I will definitely be buying this again. It has a slight lemony scent that I don't like just because I don't like lemon scent. Still, it is an essential in my household now.
So towards the end of the first bottle and still in the using it am and pm time frame as the directions state, I noticed the amazing results I was getting from this. My skin is more even toned and sun spots are fading. It takes barely anymore concealer to cover them up. Now being someone who has acne prone skin I have to still wear foundation but I feel confident that this won't be the case for long as I notice significant changes in my skin after switching over to all Estee Lauder products. I use the makeup remover for eyes and face, the clean sweep cleanser, the ANR, Idealist, Advanced Time Zone Oil Free gel, Doublewear foundation and powder. All this has really helped my skin immensely. I will not be switching to another company anytime soon.
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.
