Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent primer
I'm a huge fan of the Philosophy brand, as a whole, so I was really excited to try this moisturizer. I tried the light daytime moisturizer (the yellow one in the 4 ounce bottle,) and was disappointed that it broke me out so badly that I had to take it back to Ulta and trade it in for Murad, so I was a little nervous about the miracle worker line. However, I've been using it for about a week now and have noticed no new break outs (i have a few blemishes right now that are hormonal, but haven't had any new ones pop up.) The moisturizer is nice and thick, which I appreciate during the winter, but it's completely non-greasy and not at all heavy, which I love. I'm 33, so I don't have a ton of wrinkles, but I do have some serious frown lines between my brows. I have noticed a slight difference using this product for only a week, so I anticipate even greater results with continued use. I don't wear liquid foundation at all, so the primer is kind of a useless step for me, but I've been using it under my powder just to try it out, and I did not notice any creasing or settling of the powder, it also kept a more matte finish where I tend to get a little shiny throughout the day. If I wore liquid foundation or even tinted moisturizer I would definitely use the primer as well. The moisturizer I will absolutely purchase again in full size, and also recommend to others. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

I have used and like the philosophy cleanser and renew moisturizer. I have repurchase both of those. In saying that, I received the philosophy anti-wrinkle primer complementary to test out. Unfortunately I didn't like it. It does go onto the skin nicely but I found after using it consecutively it dried my skin out. I ended up with flakey skin. Bummer since makeup did go over this product well. I don't recommend. There are other skin primers out there that work better. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

This is a beautiful primer! It's my third time repurchasing it and I'm still very happy. I have normal skin and small-medium pores, and this does a good job making my makeup look smooth and beautiful. I use this product on my makeup clients as well and for almost everyone it's amazing! If you have heavy acne, oily skin, or large pores, this may not be the product for you though. When I mix it with Smashbox poreless primer it creates a gorgeous finish, but I don't think it's enough oil control for someone with oily skin. If you have normal skin or are just looking for a beautiful smoothing primer this is for you though!!
Make a bigger size!!!

I prefer blurring primers over foundation for everyday wear. This one is the best so far! I have some from other brands and they feel heavy on my skin or don't blur anything. This one does both, It is lightweight and blurs away imperfections. Only negative is since i use it to replace foundation the tube doesn't last long. PLEASE MAKE A DELUXE SIZE!

Got this as a sample and really thought it softened the lines on my face, and made my makeup go on easier. I wil purchase it full size.
SUCK IT UP AND BUY IT!!

This is my go to primer
Jenn from Florida
I've been using this primer for about 5 mths now and I'm addicted. This is the only primer I'll use, period. It goes on silky smooth, it's not heavy at all and a little bit goes a long way. I tend to have oily skin and I have to be careful with new products because my skin gets breakouts easily. This product does wonders for my skin and doesn't irritate at all. My skin is picky and this primer has been a blessing. My make up lasts all day and it does exactly what it says it does. All my fine lines and imperfections are blurred and even though it's a small tube it lasts a while. I'm looking forward to trying many more products from this brand. Worth every penny!

I have been looking for a primer forever. I got a sample of this bad boy in something ive ordered off another website. you put it on and let it sit say 5 mins. unbelievably the difference is unreal, at least for me. Baby smooth. Lasts all day. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
This my new favorite
Moon and Stars from Mesa, AZ
It's super hydrating and goes on so smooth. It really feels great on my skin and keeps my makeup from creasing!
PenelopeJ from Southern Oregon
I have been using this for a couple of months now - it does what it promises and more! This really makes pores disappear, and leaves my face SO smooth, really prepped for foundation. Actually, I don't bother with foundation on weekends - this is all I need, leaves my complexion looking smooth and ready to go. I simply moisturize first, then be sure to let the primer dry.
I never want to run out of this wonderful primer.

I like this primer
nascarfan1 from Toronto
I was curious to see how this primer worked. #trywithtopbox #gotitfree #freeproduct
I was quite pleased at how well it filled in the tiny lines. I applied this before my makeup. I have even used without makeup on.
No bad reaction on skin. I didn't notice any strong smell. Skin felt very smooth after applying. I would recommend to anyone that needs a bit of help with fine lines.
Cassie from Tuscaloosa, AL
Great product. I'm a 39yo with normal to dry skin & occasional (mostly hormonal) breakouts and this works really well for me. It feels good, doesn't cause dryness, oiliness, or breakouts but what I love is that it just makes my skin look...younger, smooth, dewy & bright. Philosophy has some good products but I prob wouldn't have thought to buy primer from them, so glad I got a sample of this! I will definitely purchase again.

This is a great primer. Pore blurring, long wear. I use it personally and for my clients as part of pre-makeup skin prep.
Oily Skin LIVESAVER
Ashley from Pittsburgh
The best primer I have ever used! My skin is beyond oily in my T-zone especially and this does away with all of that for coverage that lasts 12hrs!
Cara from Pennsylvania
This soft, silicone-y primer has somehow managed to prevent smile-line creasage throughout my day, and that's insane. I don't even have any lines or wrinkles, this is just so handy for makeup creasing! Super soft to the touch and good for any skin type! (I'm oily)
40+ Just Try It
Getting Old Gabi from Los Angeles
This stuff is great! My liquid makeup doesn't settle in and around my dry skin!
If you have dry skin try this before applying face makeup, it makes you look better
Love this product.
inchy from Selinsgrove,Pa.
This product is like an instant filler in a bottle. The consistency is thick out of the tube but glides on and into the lines nicely. There is no heavy feeling about it. I will incorporate this product into my daily routine.
Best primer ever
Zane NY from New York
I have had tried different brands of primer in the earth but this one is amazing! Super primer! Best ever!
Megan from Arizona
I'm absolutely in love with this primer. I have dry, acne prone skin. After receiving a sample of this primer, I was a little skeptical about the "miracle worker" name it claims. Let me tell you, this is not false advertising! Never in my life had I tried a primer that evens out the texture of my skin the way this does. I thought foundations were my issue, but once I started using this primer my foundation applies BEAUTIFULLY; it applies especially good over my nose which is a problem area for me! Foundation lasts all day long and overall this product leaves me deceased. 10/10 recommend!
