Rated 5 out of 5 by evil1witch This is the best Primer ever. I got this in the mega size and on auto delivery (HOPE THAT COMES BACK) It has the best coverage. You see no lines, no pores and the smell is so relaxing. I de stress and de tox with this every morning. I would not be without it. The lavender scent is just wonderful. I tried allot of primers and there is nothing that compares to this. You Gotta try it. And you can always return if you dont like it. But you will. Please Bring Back the mega size. 04-26-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best clear makeup This product is amazing. I am 65 years old and have dry skin. The best thing about this product for me is it looks like you have foundation on but it's clear, no color to it at all. I tend to have redness on my nose and it almost completely takes it away. I don't like wearing a lot of makeup so I usually just wear this product along with some blush and mascara. This product is great at evening out your skin tone and your pores seem to disappear. Please never discontinue this product! 03-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coverage For a primer this is great, makes my face look more even in tone and smooth. Never causes me to break out. 11-16-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by best ever I have tried several primers..I don't like makeup-but I do love this..I have very sensitive skin and almost all products make my eyes water...but not "The Present". Absolutely love scent and texture...I put on moisturizer ..follow with "The Present" and then add "Genie"(skin firmer)...let dry-and fabulous..I can't get these results without these products..My daughter also-loves- 11-07-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! I bought this bc I have VERY sensitive skin and really needed a primer that wouldn't break me out and EVERYONE that I had tried was either really oily or break me out or both....then I found this and my problems were solved! It goes on so smooth and my makeup just glides on and and looks great! A lot of times I will just wear this on its own! GREAT FIND! ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT BY PHILOSOPHY!!! 07-26-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Primer First one that has worked; ordered a second tube the first week so I don't have to be without it. Makeup stays on in the summer heat. 06-26-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product ever! This is one of my very favorite products EVER! I have been using it for a long time (years), and still love it. This is not just a primer -- I have tried many primers, and there are a lot of silky soft ones out there -- this is different. It is like makeup, but it is not makeup! If you use this, you probably won't need any foundation. If you like the face oils, like argan oil, you can use this over it to keep from looking too shiny. And, it doesn't "pill"!! Just found out that the big "S" store is not going to carry this product anymore. Big mistake for them. Thank you, QVC, for carrying this product! Please don't stop! 04-16-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 02-05-15
