Philosophy The Present Clear Makeup
The Present is a "clear makeup" for perfect, airbrushed skin. Formulated to be used as a last step prior to any makeup to form an invisible barrier that "seals in" moisture for chronically dry skin and active ingredients from treatment products while keeping out harmful environmental elements by acting like an invisible band-aid. It also contains lysozyme, a natural antimicrobial agent to keep skin radiantly "clear."

- I purchased this in hopes to smooth out the tiny pores on my nose.
It works like magic! This time of year I am a self tanner. I put on my self tan first to a clean face. Wait for it to dry. Then I put on my Philosophy The Present Clear Makeup. You have wait two full minutes, then you can apply foundation if you like. I use a tinted moisturizer and follow with Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil.
This stuff will fill in your pores and leave your face looking very smooth. Before I did not enjoy seeing my face up close because of those pores...you know what I am talking about, those things you see when you are in great lighting and looking into your compact! With this product you can not see them, I am amazed!!!
I have had no adverse reactions to this product and I have been using it over a month now. My skin is normal to dry.
I had tried a sample of this product before purchasing. When I finally ordered, I was a little saddened that Philosophy had removed the wonderful lavender-like fragrance. It has zero smell.
I am a Product Junkie - I highly recommend this one!!! Don't forget to try their cleanser also, Purity Made Simple. It is the BOMB. Very mild and works fantastic.
- I had seen them use this product on QVC and I was interested in it. Finally broke down and got it and I must say this product delivers! It made my very sensitive skin smooth out and just glow. My pores look so much smaller. The redness in my face is gone. For a quick out the door in a hurry look, this one is the best.
- After reading the positive reviews of this primer, I was excited to try it out before my upcoming wedding. I used it as directed and liked the results. My make-up lasted all day without touch-ups. My skin was in good condition, but after about 2 weeks of daily use of this product, my chin broke out with large, swollen pimples that were deep under the surface. I stopped using the product and my chin has since cleared up. Is this a scientific study? No, but it is my experience. I may consider using it when I get married, but I will be trying other primers also.
