philosophy "the present" foundation clear makeup 2 oz.
It Works for Me!
I have been using the "Present" for a number of years and I like the formulation. It works for me. I sometimes wear it on its own as it really smooth's out the skin and gives it a natural glow. It does take a minute or two to fully dry before adding foundation or blush, but I can usually find something else to do in that minute or two, like putting my earrings on. I am very satisfied with the product.
I used this for the first time, goes on nice and skin feels like there is nothing on , thank you qvc
Not for my skin
I know Wayne Goss considers this the beat primer ever but it didn't work well for me. I am 65 and have good skin that is normal to slightly dry in some areas. I felt like I was pulling and tugging to get this on and had great difficulty spreading it on. I do not want to fight with primer. I want it to go on smoothly and this did not.
I have used this product for a couple years now, and absolutely love it. I really like it in the summer when you're outside and get hot and sweaty. Regular makeup would run and feel heavy, but this product isn't like that at all. I use about a dime size worth of it, add a little bit of blush and this 60 y/o woman is ready for the ballgames, etc. It covers and blends your complexion without that heavy feeling of liquid or powder makeup. If you can't decide if you should get this or not, GET IT, YOU'LL LOVE IT!
The formulation changed
I have used this product every day for many years. I would have given this product 5 stars. They have changed the formulation. It now has a slight almost floral fragrance. It does not minimize pores and it leaves my face greasy. It does absolutely nothing it used to. It also has made my face break out, which sometimes happens to people when they try a new face product. I have emailed the company and they replied that they took ingredients out and replaced them with other ingredients and that they couldn't find an ingredient that could have any fragrance at all. Please read this before you plan to re-order. Very disappointing since I have loved this product since the beginning.
Best Primer Ever
I love this product!! It is the best primer I have ever tried!!! Makes my makeup look amazing!!! I put this on even if I am not going to wear makeup that day. It makes your face look flawless! Best product ever. Just be sure to wait the 2 minutes before you put your makeup on.
The very BEST
I absolutely LOVE philosophy..I have very oily skin and only wear powder foundations,after trying The Present,iam hooked!! Makes your face look flawless and makeup just looks better after applying my powder over the present;) try it,you'll be hooked 2...
Not sure what the commotion is about
I have decided that I never want to be without a primer for as long as I am around. They are the greatest invention ever. As a result, I have tried quite a few to determine which works best for me. I tried THE PRESENT and it is ok but not great as far as I am concerned. I like to wear liquid foundation and it does not go on well after I have established a coat of the Present. I wait the full 2 minutes or more as per the instructions but I still have a blending issue. I do not have this issue with some other brands of primer -- only this one. Once I have finished the tube I will not rebuy this. Not sure what all the hype is all about.
THIS IS GREAT AS PRIMER
I AM 52 YEARS YOUNG AND PUT THIS ON FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY. I AM SO IMPRESSED. I KEPT IT ON FOR THE FULL 2 MINUTES BEFORE APPLYING MY MAKEUP AND I LOOK SO AMAZING, PHILOSOPHY, YOU ARE AWESOME!
This is the best !!
I love this stuff...It makes my skin look flawless...I am on auto - delivery cause I never want to be without...Best primer I have ever tried...
I look so much better now
I switched from other brands of primers and BE to this product and the supernatural makeup. The two philosophy products together are magic. I use less makeup, imagine that. My skin looks better, my wrinkles smoother and it lasts all day. I don't want to ever have to live without this.
DO NOT STOP MAKING THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!
I used to have oily skin but as I have gotten older I have combination oily and dry skin. This product is great for when I had my 4 operations. I know you are not suppose to wear makeup but I wore this on my face to keep the shine down and no one ever new the difference. I bought this a long time ago when it was in a black tube and still have it. I use it spareingly and only when I want a smooth non-shine finish and no other makeup except mascara and lip gloss. I was not sure about it at first but then gave it a second chance and now I just love it.
