Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

Posted in skincare with tags , , , , on May 17, 2008 by LPB

Estee’s Idealist promises:

• Pores appear 1/3 smaller—instantly.

• See a 69% reduction in the look of pores in just 4 weeks.

• Repairs the look of uneven skin texture, flakiness and roughness.

See more highly refined, virtually poreless skin. More clarity, smoothness and luminosity.

Smooth on Idealist and instantly enjoy that soft, seamless, silky feeling you love.

• Includes 3 times more Glucosamine than original Idealist. 

• Pore Diminishing Technology significantly shrinks the look of enlarged pores.

• Gentle-acting Chestnut Extract helps free your skin from dry, dulling, flaky skin cells.  


Idealist’s revolutionary Pore Diminishing Technology makes enlarged pores look virtually invisible by treating their appearance from the inside out.

• Immediately, it begins to dissolve away pore-clogging debris.

• Dead skin cells are continuously cleared away.

• A super-potent anti-oxidant—NDGA—also helps shrink the look of enlarged pores by helping reduce the build-up of excess oil deep within pores. 


Idealist banishes flakiness and roughness and helps your skin naturally speed fresher skin cells to its surface. Gives skin an overall more even tone.

• With 3 times more Glucosamine (a sugar-derived, non-acid refinisher) than our previous formula, it loosens the bonds that bind dead, dulling and flaky cells to your skin’s surface.

• A proven blend helps fade the look of dark spots and discolorations over time.


Personally, i like the refreshing fragrance of this product and used it as a make up base/primer ( thanks to all those silicons) . I think its texture is rather greasy for a product that is supposed to control oily breakthrough; It’s not a great mattifier  but a basic primer that helps foundation to glide on smoothly.

Neither my pores size nor sebum secretion had ameliorate after continuous usage of idealist.
