Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I had purchased about 4 or 5 of them! I purchased this product when it was being discontinued,(I thought). I paid $5 each for it. I bought two because I had never used it but, I trust Philosophy's quality (even though they have changed the formula on some of my favs "not a fan of that") and for $5 a pop what could I lose? Whooo! this stuff is GOOOOOODDD! I used it under foundation first. Just make sure it's completely dry before applying your foundation. Then, I tried it without foundation and I was blown away. My skin literally looked airbrushed, fresh, like I was wearing makeup and I'm 52 years old. I love this stuff. Glad its not gone away but, bummed it's $30 freakin dollars. Sadly, will be purchasing again. Have only worn foundation maybe twice since using this on my skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it First off the smell is amazing, so subtle but sweet. It’s a little thick which worried me at first but you just use a very small amount and it works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this under my makeup or even alone. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth. Only takes a very small amount for your whole face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice finish Does give my face a nice matte finish and gives me a good canvas for face tint.
