          Comments about Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher:

          I clean and moisturizer my face daily and take good care of my skin but still battle having (what I consider) large pores. I have been searching for a product that will visibly reduce the size of my pores and unfortunately this product did not even come close. I am disappointed. I have spent over $200 on other products promising to visibly reduce the size of my pores and I have yet to find that. "PORE fessional" by Benefit works the best to cover up my pores but still searching for a topical to actually reduce the size... until then I will not be buying this product again.

              I don't use this consistently and maybe that's the problem, but they advertise seeing immediate results and I never have, either alone or under makeup. I should have returned it.

                Hands down, the best Skin care product I've found on the market today. I've recommended to several people who have fallen in love with it as well. Also I've given it as birthday gifts and have created more fans of this product.

                Comments about Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher:

                After turning 30 I noticed my skin starting to look different. I was very undecided on buying this product, mainly because of the price. I am so glad I gave it a try! immediately I noticed a difference in my skin. It absorbs quickly and has a light citrus smell. I only need to use one pump for my entire face morning and night. My pores appear smaller and my face is left super soft. I also noticed my foundation applies so much more flawless. I will definitely keep buying this product, the price is worth it!!

                  I was hesitant about spending this much money but as I have gotten older my pores are huge. I bought this and I also bought a Mia 2. I think that both of these products have helped. I can tell that after I use this product my pores are almost not noticeable. It absorbs fast and doesn't make my face oily. I use it morning and night.

                    I forgot how awesome and effective this product is! I finished my bottle about 7 months ago and didn't get a new one because I didn't want to spend so much on beauty products... but I'm glad I just repurchased it! It is so good and I started to notice my pores getting smaller since day one! If you have the money, I say spend it on this amazing product. I have. It find anything as effective as this one.
