My philosophy, get this now!
This stuff is amazing! I have combo skin, dry-ish cheeks with super oily T-zone, but this primer keeps my makeup in place all day and also keeps the oily parts of my face fairly matte. I think this really enhances my overall look. It also has a nice satin smooth feel and smells so incredibly good! This is the first primer I’ve tried that I actually like and notice a difference in how my makeup looks and lasts. Since I use BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation, I used to use their “matte finish” primer, which was sticky feeling and left me with really no noticeable changes in my makeup appearance. Philosophy works a billion times better under the BareMinerals foundations, in my opinion. I’ll definitely be using this forever now!

The BEST Primer I've Tried
Most primers make my face break out. This product does not. My understanding is that most primers have silicone in them and that's what causes some people to break out. I prefer a more natural product anyway, and this is great. It reduces shine and the appearance of pores and makes my skin look and feel silky.

Truly love this primer!
Such a great primer for large pores/oily skin! I've tried so many primers from so many high-end stores (ya'll know which mall makeup stores I'm talking about!) and I love the texture of this one for my skin type. It truly makes my makeup last, and I'm talking drugstore foundations too. The best part? It only takes a tiny amount to do the job, so this will definitely last a long time. If you have combination/oily skin, I can't recommend this enough!

Thanks s stuff is the best . Stings a bit when first applied. Your make up will last all day , until you remove it . It does not break me out. I love it . It's kind of hard to find, I fear that product is on the verge of discontinuation?? Super scared!

This is a miracle worker. A little goes a very long way. Sometimes I’ll put this on a clean face and not wear anything over it. Adds a nice matte finish to a natural face.

Gentle, keeps makeup on my oily skin in high humidity, creates a great, hypoallergenic barrier between my face and the makeup that irritates and clogs it. Nicole

Well my tube of this was watery, unusable garbage. I tried shaking it to blend and it didn't help. Very disappointing

The best primer I've ever used!
I absolutely LOVE Philosophy's The Present! It's like glue! My makeup stays on all day & all through the evening, & it smooths lines & wrinkles like a dream! I still use Skindinavia, & I'm sure that helps makeup stay put as well, but The Present has made a HUGE difference. I recommend waiting at least 5 minutes before applying your foundation. It recommends 2 full minutes, but that wasn't long enough, in my opinion, so I wait 5 minutes (sometimes longer) & my foundation looks perfect all day long. I would also recommend using this product sparingly. A little bit goes a very long way & using too much leaves your skin tacky & makeup looking way less than perfect. I would recommend using a smaller than pea-size amount. The 2 ounces that you get will last a very, VERY long time. I expect to purchase this once a year, because of the small amount that is required each use. I've used about every primer out there, & this is by far the best I've ever used & I'll continue to use this as long as they keep making it!
