    Comments about Philosophy The Present:

    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.

                  Comments about Philosophy The Present:

                  Fell in love with this product!! I use it for many different things, mostly for a holy grail primer and my gosh it is hydrating and so smoothing and non greasy or sticky whatsoever, it's just utterly fantastic. I also use it alone for a moisturizer, as well as using it to smooth out makeup that's been on for a while, by putting a little bit right on top of my foundation and lightly smooth it with my fingertips. It's also great for helping to take your makeup off by applying it all over then wiping off makeup and also fixing eyeshadow mistakes if you go out to far with color etc. If you have drier skin you will love it as much as I do. I have combination to drier skin. Oily forehead and nose and dry cheeks, with extremely dry patches around my nose and chin. This is an A+ product and should be in everyone's makeup bag. I definitely recommend it to all.
