Use the present as an under-base for a flawless finish. It helps camouflage small skin imperfections, while providing a protective barrier. Great for moisturizing, it only needs a full two minutes to bind with your skin before applying foundation. From philosophy.

philosophy "the present" foundation clear makeup 2 oz. is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected I thought that I was buying the clear make up which I had used in the past and loved it. I also purchased a second one to give to my sister at Christmas. However, this has a primer and I cannot have the primer because it affects my breathing. I was really forward to the old product which worked so well for me. I had to return it. If Philosophy ever makes the clear foundation without the primer, I will order it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I'm not someone who writes reviews, but this is just one reliable product that I absolutely love. I've tried some other primers, but since I was 16 this is the one product I always come back to. I love the subtle lavender scent and how it moisturizes and primes without suffocating my skin. There are plenty of days that it's the only makeup I wear. It's like automatic airbrushing. My only complaint is that it seems like they keep putting less and less in the package for the same price. I just hope they don't ever discontinue it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from can wear alone What I really love most about this is you can wear it alone with no makeup and it looks good. I was skeptical at first but have been using now for over a week and it just kind of gives a bit of a glow, not shiny just a glow. When you first put it on give it a minute or two before applying and other makeup, it seems greasy at first , and you only need a little and once it is on for a few it is no longer greasy but gives a nice and even look. It has no odor that I can detect. I really like it and yes would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy customer Took advantage of a deal that offered $50 worth of free product (full-size Shear Splendor shampoo & conditioner) with a $50 purchase. Wearing this product for the first time today and loving the way my skin feels. It did feel a bit greasy during application, but dried to a silky matte finish in just a couple of minutes. In general, I love most all of Philosophy's products, and though the pricing is a little steep, I (usually) have the self-control to wait for a great offer like this to come along so I can snag several products I've been eyeing and still feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer...period... I've been looking for a primer and have had quite a few fails in this area, until this one came into my life. I use mostly philosophy for my skin needs so thought I'd pick up this primer. It has a nice thick consistency and smells like an herbal school glue. With that said it is not offensive to me nor does the odor cling to skin after application. I wash with purity, moisturize if needed, then apply the present. It dries to a matte finish in a few minutes. I then apply whatever foundation I'm using for the day. Why is this product successful? I don't know the science behind it but most of my makeup applied remains until evening. If I've had sweat or moisture on my face the makeup remains. This formula is non-greasy, not shiny and no oils. I've been completely satisfied with this product and daily performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Primer For Oily Skin Although I am 62 I still have oily skin and large pores. I originally found this on the Philosophy website and loved it so much ordered several! Important you let it dry for the full 3-5 minutes, then I apply my tinted Hope in Jar. Flawless! I even use it alone on those working around the house days! Just makes you feel like you look fresh just in case someone stops by!!! Love and use everything Philosophy!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Philosophy products are not what they once were. Something is different about Philosophy products, of late. They do not have the same fresh scent. Has something changed? Did the company sell out to a new owner? I did not return this item, however, it is difficult to wear as it doesn't smell very good. The product and consistency is very different from when I previously purchased this item. Having had two disappointing purchases with Philosophy, I decided to try IT cosmetics and it s a pleasant change and the feeling I used to get from buying Philosophy products.
