Quite a few months ago, I got my hands on the then newly launched Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator serum. Before I got it, I’d purchased a bottle for a friend for her birthday and within a week received a glowing report of how wonderful it was for her. Said friend swore that it actually did help even out her skintone, reduce redness and blotchiness and left her skin looking wonderfully radiant overall. Goodness! I had to give it a go myself!
It is a point to note that this product is an add-on to the Estee Lauder Idealist range, and not a replacement. So it is by all accounts, a brand new product. It comes in the signature Idealist turquoise bottle which has a slight iridescence to it, to simulate the illuminating effects, I would guess.
What this product claims to do is to reduce redness, blotchiness, discolourations, spots and lift dull skin so you get a more even toned, radiant visage. Results are claimed to be seen in 14 days and my friend testified to it in 7! How did it fare for me then?
