philosophy divine flawless foundation broad-spectrum uva/uvb spf 50
I have used Bare Minerals for years and still do love it but I was looking for something exactly like this. This gives my skin a beautiful glow, smooth and A TRUE uva/uvb spf 50. What more can a girl ask for. I bought the medium. I went to Ulta to pick up a tube because it was almost gone and they told me that Philosoply does not make foundation. Little do they know! I only go there in an emergency.
Thank you QVC!
I've been a big fan of philosophy's body washes, was in the market for a bb cream or foundation with a high spf, and decided to give this one a try. The light-to-medium shade is a perfect match for my fair skin, goes on very smoothly, and provides moderate coverage. Since I'm new to philosophy's makeup, I didn't have any expectations that it would feel or behave a certain way. It does contain 10% titanium dioxide and 10% zinc oxide to provide the spf 50, so it initially appears a little white when you first apply it. After a minute or two it settles into your skin and gives nice even coverage. I wore it all day to an outdoor event, and did not burn or have any redness when I removed it that evening. At 56, I'm thrilled to add this to my anti-aging toolkit.
Miss the previous Philosophy liquid foundation
While it is great to use just a pea size amount and the coverage is great, the color is very light for the medium I ordered. I thought it went on chalky, it takes time for the moisturizing to be felt/seen and then it gets a little greasy. I do like the SPF 50, so I will not return it but save it for when I will be out doors a lot.
Finally a make up with a real SPF! And it gives great coverage. I have some age spots that regular make up does not cover. This one does. It's creamy too. And it has a lovely fragrance. This is a keeper.
I DON'T GET IT!
When the Supernatural Superbeautiful foundation came out, I was ECSTATIC! I just put a pea size blob on the back of my hand and then dotted and blended on my face and it WASN'T GREASY, THICK, HEAVY, OR CAKEY. It looked like flawless beautiful skin! It even felt light on. They came out with that Flawless poress spf 30 about the same time and it felt slimy, and I sweated under it. AND it looked awful on. It went BACK. I felt FINALLY Philosophy had a wonderful foundation that looked like Philosophy stood for, NATURALLY PRETTY. Of course it was disc. THEN the Satin creme to powder, another lovely product, DISC.! NOW, this, even with the spf 50 which is a wonderful thing, can't hold a candle to either of those. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OTHER TWO GREAT FOUNDATIONS. Greasy with no coverage or luminosity doesn't cut it.
Purchased philosophy divine flawless foundation Light-medium broad-spectrum uva/uvb spf 50 . I like the coverage. DId not make my eyes water like most sunscreens do.
Having seen this on tv and read reviews, am wondering if I received the same thing as the others? What this did to/for me was like a heavy makeup and zero glow. Nothing luminous about it to me. Must say that I got this mostly because of the spf 50 and that did work.We rode the bike all day, in FL, no sunburn. And it felt soft and not sticky to the touch. But I do not like the look of heavy foundation and that is what it does to me. Very unnatural. I don't care an obviously made-up look at all. Should be a better color choice,too. Got medium and I do agree it is orangy. Seems it'd have been better to make it a bronzer or tanner look. Atleast a color that would blend in and not have a shade that screams foundation. Love that it didn't feel too heavy or greasy, as it is hard to find a comfortable spf makeup. This one misses the mark , but with some work, I think it could get there. Going to have to return this one!
As soon as I found the perfect foundation--the now apparently discontinued Divine Cream-to Satin foundation spf25, Philosophy discontinues it.
Just for reference--I'm 46 with good skin, no wrinkles, but large pores. I have fair skin.
Everyone gave me compliments when I used the cream-to-satin version. Well, I was getting low on it , but when I went to reorder, it was no longer available. I decided to try the new version.
I knew as soon as I put it on that it was not going to look as good as the previous version. It makes my face look dull and matte. It doesn't give the same vibrant youthful glow as the other foundation did. The cream-to-satin gave my skin that youthful suppleness that this one just doesn't have.
Anyone have an alternate suggestion?
Love Love Love this product!
Ths is the best makeup I ave ever tried. I used to be a Bare Escentuals girl until I got older and it would settle in my lines (both types). I thought I would give this a try and it is fantastic. I am 58 and it feels great on my skin and gives it a bit of luminosity...just a slight glow. You can layer it to give it more coverage. My skin has yellowish undertones. Try it...you will be pleased.
Not for very fair skin
It's too yellow/orange yndertones for the very fair skin, & I wouldn't use if I was older, not moistering at all.
Are you kidding me????
I don't get all of the rave reviews on this foundation. It does NOT deliver good coverage, nor does it cover the redness in my skin. I am sooooo disappointed. I loved the prospect of a foundation with a high spf in it, as I don't like layering my skin with serums, sunscreen and foundation. I did the side-by-side comparison and nothing but shine with no coverage. I never write reviews, but if I could help one person out there who's on the fence about ordering this, it was well worth it. Going back today!
Best Summertime Foundation
This foundation is lightweight, gives decent coverage, and does adjust to my skin color. I bought the light/medium and am on the fair end of the spectrum. This is not too dark, just right, and the finish is like satin. You won't feel it on the skin. It The fact that it is also SPF 50 is remarkable, and it's not heavy or greasy like some sunscreens can be. I drive in full sunlight every day and can discolor easily so a product like this is a necessity. It is a great multi-tasker. I find it does also provide an illuminated effect to the skin, kind of lit from within. I ordered a tube last year, and re-ordered this year. I hope Philosophy keeps this product around for a while, it's one of the best of its type.
