    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Put on Makeup Without It! I feel naked if I don't put this on before applying makeup. This product makes all the difference in how my makeup sets and appears/lasts all day. I love this product, and it leaves my skin feeling soft and protected. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Present is a Gift:) I recently purchased The Present and used it for the first time. Although I have been a Philosophy Devotee for a long time, this product is new for me. I love it. I have oily skin and anything that creates a matte finish is my friend. You can wear this without makeup or you can use it to create a pallet for your foundation. Either way, I definitely suggest that you give yourself the gift of a smooth and flawless face. Love It!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oil free primer I've used the Present off and on for years. It is my go-to beach item since i don't wear makeup at the beach and it gives a nice finish like i put powder on when it dries. I also use it as a primer in the summer when it's more humid and it helps my t-zone appear much less oily through the day.
