Estée Lauder Idealist

Every friday evening I leave my life in Brussels/Leuven behind me and I head back to my hometown to spend some quality time with my family. So it is only normal that I have many of my favorite beauty products twice -one for home and one for my home away from home- and loads of back-up products in case of emergency, right?

This tactic proved itself quite useful the past few days that I spent in my hometown for the holidays. I had ran out of Clinique Pore Minimizer Refining Lotion but luckily had a valuable alternative nearby. I gave Estée Lauder's Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher a go and was very much surprised. First of all by its lovely scent. Even though I'm no fan of perfumes in my beauty products, the lemon'y scent is subtle enough for me to love. And although the texture of the Idealist is thicker than Clinique's Pore Minimizer, which is more like a serum, it still feels incredibly light on my skin and has a silky finish to it. And it leaves my skin very smooth, which I love. So I'm thinking I'm going to get a new Pore Minimizer but I will keep using Idealist faithfully every weekend.

Next on my beauty wish list: Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex.


  1. I used to use the Clinique ones too and the Estee Lauder one seems pretty fantastic! gotta try it...
