I am going through a Philosophy trial since the sales lady at Ultra talked me in to buying several Philosophy items. This one is going back. I think it works well, but it balls up on my face when putting it on. I need to then flick off the little balls. not sure what is going on with that. Maybe I am not putting it on thin enough? All I know is my other primer I am using (and tried a few …Read more

This is my specialty primer that i use on special occasions due to its expensive price. I really like how the primer feels on my skin, it gives my skin a great overall glow and evens out texture for when applying makeup.

I use a very small amout and spread evenly onto my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. I let sit for a few minutes to soak into skin before makeup …

This is the only cosmetic product I've ever tried that lives up to its description! Well, okay, it doesn't make my me look completely poreless, but I have really lousy oily skin, with huge pores. Even so, this stuff makes my skin actually look good, which I didn't think was possible.

I bought it when Philosophy had some skincare sets* on clearance . . . it was a great …

This is my favorite primer for my very oily skin! I like the thick, whipped texture that is not greasy but matifying instead. Rare for a product with sunscreen. I like the texture & the smoothing effects of this primer. No breakouts for my extremely sensitive skin! This product comes in a peachy tint which is okay but I'd prefer something in a lighter color. I wore this on one side …Read more

This is one of my current "can't live without" makeup products that I use every single day. I use it as a makeup primer or, on weekends, as my foundation.

I've tried many other Philosophy products, but I either didn't like them or they caused acne and/or an allergic reaction, but this product is great!

I've tried other brands of primers, but …

I don't know about you, but I don't like this primer. I don't like the texture of it, I don't like how it makes me feel like I have a lot of makeup on, and I don't like how it makes my foundation look dull. I call this the 'insecure primer', the primer that makes you feel ugly. I don't like the slimy feeling when applying, it feels like I'm actually …Read more

There just wasn't anything I liked about this product. I hardly ever return products as I'm usually able to find some use for them. This one was sent back immediately. The texture is hard to describe, but it's awful and I had an terrible time getting it to blend well. There was no coverage of any kind, certainly nothing that left me with anything remotely flawless or any coverage …Read more

I love this product! It controls shine practically all day and makes my skin super smooth. I wear it alone for a nice natural matte look or under my foundation to make it flawless. I recommend giving this a try if you havent yet.

Yuck! This is not moisturizing enough by itself, but too slippery and goopy feeling on top of a separate moisturizer. The sun protection in this is way too weak, in my opinion -- definitely not high enough for those with really light skin -- so I always have to combine it with another sunscreen. But worst of all is the color! I'm very pale -- usually the lightest or second to lightest …Read more

Evens out my complexion and feels like silk! Great primer, or good when you want light coverage. Hard to live without this product!
