            I use this daily. I have combo, sensitive skin. I apply moisturizer, wait a few minutes then apply this. I wait several minutes before applying makeup. Makeup applies smoothly. Pores nearly invisible. Makeup lasts longer. Sometimes i dont wear makeup at all but this makes my skin look pretty good! Will buy again and again.

              I've been looking for a primer as far as I can remember. After being recommended this primer, I gave it a try and I fell in love. This has kept my makeup in place all day and it does an amazing job in minimizing my pores.

                    Comments about Philosophy The Present:

                    I am 55+ and have light medium skin that is dry/combo sensitive skin, and only feels best when I use this primer together with my moisturizer, (with or without makeup), especially on cold/windy days. This product soothes my skin, like no other. Most other primers feel too oily to me. This primer feels just right, and also helps my makeup blend more smoothly, too. I know this product is sold as a primer, but for me is a moisturizer booster, (and I don't find the lavender irritating as some reviewers may say). Ulta is my Go-To Store for this product.
