  1. I applied Idealist the very first morning I had it. The fragrance was lovely and it felt like silk on my skin. When I ended my day and looked in the mirror there seemed to appear two horrible, and very obvious frown lines. They were so noticable I felt it impossible for me to not have noticed them previously. The next morning I decided I was paranoid and foolish, so I applied the product again. When I got home that night the previously very fine lines around my eyes had turned into out and out crows-feet. Was Idealist the cause of these (literally) overnight changes? For a fact I will never know, but there is no way I will ever apply it on my face again. I am useing a great product, Strivectin, in hopes it will help me as it has in the past. Meanwhile, I look ten years older in 2 days then I did 3 days ago, and I am stuck with $100 worth of poison. Buyer-beware!

  2. Take it back if you dont like it… you’re not “stuck with $100 worth of poison”. The department store I buy mine at has a 6 month return policy with receipt and if you don’t have one they’ll give you store credit.
