I think it took a perfectionist to come up with something like Idealist.

I am an instant gratification kind of a person. I can act mature and sensible and appear all grown up but deep inside I want what I want and I want it now. Who isn't like me? So to all the advertising people there who throw at us something like "instant results", "amazing transformation" and such - well, I am the reason they come up with lines like that because they do work, at least on me. Thanks goodness, the pitch lines are not the only thing that works. At least on me.
When I first read online reviews of Estee Lauder Idealist I thought to myself:"yeah, right.... how could that be? Or could it?..." Did they finally come up with something to give us back the skin we had before we received all this life experience? Because come to think of it it's the life experience that makes us appreciate who we are and... the skin we had. So can we please have the beauty back now when we acquired our brain? Perhaps. And so a little sample arrived in the mail. I tried it. I was hooked. I did see the difference right away. Well, I thought to myself that perhaps it's the same thing as a primer. It makes you look better when it's on, but what happens when you and your skin have to face each other in the morning before any magic cream or lotion or serum can take it's place? Ha! Well, let me tell you... The morning "look-in-the-mirror" test was passed with flying colors. The truth is that I started noticing the results right away. The pores seemed smaller, my skin appeared smoother and brighter, and the overall tone seemed to even out. And though Idealist is pricey bear in mind that a little of it goes a long way.
I think whoever was working on Idealist must have been a true perfectionist. Thank you.
