    Comments about Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    I usually use tarte foundation but for some reason was drawn to this when I was out shopping. I really like that it has 30 spf in it as it's creeping into summer I want to make sure my skin in protected without having to put sunscreen on top of my makeup while I'm out. It looks really natural which is why I ended up buying it. Most foundations just look really caked on with my skin type (oil problems on my forehead and nose with dry spots) but this goes smoothly over my whole face. It has a light sunscreen smell which I personally really enjoy. It feels good all day and does move around. I just use it after a moisturizer and then top it with a finishing powder. Will buy it again for sure.

        This is a dewy and moisturizing foundation. Blends easily, wears well. Light to medium coverage. Less ideal for acne, but would be excellent for aging/mature skin.

        My issue is that it can ball up on the skin when applied. Little white specks appear on my skin, and I have to carefully brush them off with a fingernail. I'm not sure if it's the foundation reacting with the damp sponge, or what, but it drives me crazy. I will not repurchase, but for the right person, this foundation could be great. I am just not that person.

        The shades run dark: I wear a "light" in the IT CC cream, but #4 Light was too dark.

              I have bad acne scars and need a full coverage. This product is wonderful, especially with a primer. It stays all day and doesn't cause breakouts. I have tried a lot of foundations for my skin and this truly is a great one.

                  Best foundation I have used and a little goes a long way. A little pricey, but I am willing to pay the extra for something I really like. I had someone tell me just the other day that I have a very pretty complexion. That is a wonderful compliment considering I am 53 and have had my complexion issues in the past. I am very happy with the Philosophy brand and use more than just the foundation.

                        We would recommend our new Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation. It's light-as-air liquid makeup that helps skin recover from the signs of a busy life that can age skin, as it evens tone and smoothes texture with a breathable, weightless finish. The innovative cushion delivery system and mesh filter provide a fine layer of perfecting color that instantly locks in hydration and blends and builds beautifully, for sheer to full coverage. It comes with its own sponge for flawless application.
