      My favorite liquid foundation by far! It is so moisturizing and never gets the "cakey" look as do some other foundations. This foundation also smells great which is a plus!

          I have terribly oily skin so I tend to avoid liquid makeup. I got this on a whim while it was on sale, and am happily surprised. It doesn't look greasy, it doesn't melt off, and it helps keep my oiliness down, even during the hot Georgia summer.

            This foundation is a breath of fresh air! I have dry skin and neutral undertones and finding a a foundation that works for both of those things is super difficult. It is light to medium coverage with a beautiful dewy finish. Perfect for summer or for when you're not wanting anything too heavy. It's not exactly waterproof but with a setting spray it will last a good while. Will definitely repurchase. :)

              I really want to love this makeup. It matches me perfectly and blends so well. It is absolutely perfect for about five hours and then all of the sudden my face is a grease ball. My days can last up to 10 hours a day sometimes more and I don't have time to reapply. I need something that can last that long and unfortunately this doesn't cut it. I'm giving it three stars and recommending it to a friend because I do indeed live in a humid climate and if my days were short and I had time to reapply this would be the perfect foundation.

I have really dry skin, I have redness and I am also in my 40's. Will this foundation flake on me or settle into my lines and will I need to use an additional product for my redness and my pores?

                  A:

                  You can achieve medium coverage with either product. To address the signs of aging, we suggest using Miracle Worker Foundation, which features an anti-aging formula to help improve radiance and tone, even after you take it off, and to visibly take up to 5 years off your complexion!

                This foundation was recommended for me because I have sensitive, acne prone NON-oilyskin. I LOVE this foundation, it provides natural coverage and gives my normal/dry skin a radiant glow, BUT I am in need of a primer to pair it with. I have enlarged pores I want to hide, but every single primer I have tried dries my skin out and makes my skin and foundation appear flaky and chalky. What primer would work best with this foundation without having to sacrifice the dewy glow I get from the foundation alone?

                  We recommend Philosophy Hope In A Jar A To Z Cream, which serves as a moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one easy step! It will help minimize the appearance of pores and features a sheer tint for a little added coverage when worn underneath foundation. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, and ideal for all skin types including sensitive, acne-prone skin. It features these skin beneficial ingredients:

                  lactic acid helps refine skin for a healthy looking, rosy glow on the outside
                  beta-glucan supports skin's natural defense system to nurture a glow on the inside
                  skin-loving minerals, antioxidants and spf 20 help protect skin against environmental attack

                  A:

                  If you're looking for a lightweight formula, we'd definitely recommend Hope in a Jar Foundation (choose shade #5 Light/Medium), which features a light-as-air formula. You can achieve medium, natural looking coverage with a demi-matte finish, and Hope in a Jar is excellent for those with oily skin due to its oil-free formula. For extra coverage where needed, use a concealer like Philosophy Miracle Worker Concealer over or under foundation.

                I have very dry skin due to the current course of Accutane (Isotretinoin) that I'm on. How moisturizing is this foundation and will it exacerbate the few flaky patches on my face? Or is there a more hydrating foundation I should try?

                  A:

                  It’s always a good idea to consult your dermatologist when you are in the middle of a treatment. Since Accutane can be drying, you should always use a moisturizer underneath the foundation. The perfect oil-free combo would be to use Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream (Item #: 2245234) and then Hope in a Jar Foundation to avoid exacerbating the dry spots on your face.

                Does this product cause breakouts? Is it really necessary to apply every 2 hours like the directions say?

                  A:

                  This product features an oil-free, light-as-air formula for all skin types. It has not undergone noncomedogenic testing.

                  In addition to providing a natural finish, it also provides broad spectrum SPF 20 sun protection, and this is why you see on the directions to "reapply every 2 hours". The updated FDA sun monograph requires manufacturers to include these best practices to help protect consumers from skin damage caused by excessive sun exposure.
