    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this primer! This was the first primer I have used. After I finished the tube, I decided to try other primers just to see if there was anything better. Nope! There isn't! I went back to The Present and will plan to stick with this primer only! Other primers that claim to take redness away don't really do that. I have slight redness to my cheeks and found The Present is the only one that actually makes the redness subside. Also, other primers I have tried will make my face slightly oily by the end of the day. The Present does not make my skin oily and keeps my makeup stay put after a long day. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love When you first put this on it feels greasy. After letting it dry, my face is completely matte and oil free. Keeps the oil from coming back and allows my makeup to go on smoothly. I use this product everyday after moisturizing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have I'm 42 with noticeable sun damage around my eyes, and lines around my mouth. I tried this just based on reviews...I can't go a day without it! A marked difference between using "The Present" as your makeup primer & any other primer. You'll be stunned! Takes years off your appearance, and we all need that! I've been very pleased! I put on all serums, moisturizers 1st, wait about a min, then put on "The Present", wait about 1.5 min. The longer I wait, the more foundation I have to use to apply it evenly, smoothly. May be foundation I use, Lancome Teint Idole Ultra (matte finish). I love it!
