The Present is in a class by itself! I have never seen a facial product do more! After applying sunscreen and/or moisturizer, apply The Present. This product will make your foundation (preferably philosophy airbrush canvas) go on smoothly, and makes it adhere to your skin. Your skin is smoothed out filling in lines and wrinkles, as well as large pores. It is just the greatest product ever. Sharon Perkins, Cordele, GA

Great product! It does not make my skin break-out AND after applying I don't need foundation! It gives your skin an air-brushed look, minimizes pores, evens skin tone, etc. Word of caution: Make sure your face is COMPLETELY dry and use a smaller amount than you think you need.

I see a lot of rave reviews and wonder what age the reviewers are. I think it makes a difference. I was tired of the commonly available makeup in stores that target older women. They are so heavy and pasty, and look terrible as the day wears on. Rather than minimize wrinkles and fine lines, they seem to accentuate it by settling in the creases.
I switched from that regimen to this along with the Philosophy powder foundation. I've been using this for about 2 months now. The primer alone is fine for weekends, but I need the additional powder for work/more formal settings. I'm pretty happy with the results compared to the above. It wears well throughout the day as well; I don't cringe when I look in the mirror after a long day at work. However, if a product is going to call itself 'perfect', it sets the bar really high for reviews. I do plan on trying some other products after I use up my current supply, so the jury is still out on this one.

I am a seventy nine year old (Lady), and love a product that does not make your aging lines look worse. I do not wear foundation or make up. Only a little cheek color, ege brows and lip color.

I have been using the Present for a long time. It makes my face look healthy without the heavy make up.

Amazing! I have been hunting for a good under makeup primer for a long time. I am an adult acne sufferer who uses Retin-A, but I still get areas of break-outs, oily T-zone, and due to the Retin-A flaky, dry skin patches. I use mineral makeup because creams and liquids feel like they melt off my face half-way through the day. Minerals being the other option, are better, but lack the coverage that I'd ideally like. But this foundation/primer keeps the mineral powder from being disappearing and gives my skin an airbrush look (just as advertised!). Thus far, I've found the key to be using the smallest amount (a thin, finger tip size smear) amount and waiting 2 minutes or more before applying foundation, finishing veil, and bronzer. Can't speak to pore minimizing, but that wasn't what I was interested in. I got what I wanted! Strongly recommend this to people with problem skin like mine.

This product is everything I hoped it would be. I generally don't like the feel of makeup on my face, but with the Present, I can smooth some on, and wear it all day and still feel like my skin can breath. It does indeed smooth out the irregularities in my skin and give an overall improved appearance. It amazes me everytime I use it. A little goes a long way, and it is definitely worth the price.

I had a lot of expectations with this product, although I've read mixed reviews.
My skin is oily and acne-prone, I don't wear foundation but I do use concealer and mineral powder.

This is a very nice primer, the first I've ever used. It does help with complexion, and oil control and it's great at that! If you have redness it will dissipate. I don't feel it helps to reduce pores or wrinkles. I doesn't help to reduce acne but it WONT break you out... so that's good. I feel like it also moisturizes the skin and does fill in the skin a little bit (but not so much that small holes, pores or wrinkles will look that much different). It has a matte finish.

It is true that you have to let it dry at least 2 minutes, sometimes I even wait 5minutes, so it really works. You don't have to use a lot, because if you do it will kinda peal off, so it does last for months.. it's worth the price.. but i would try others to see what it's like (the only other one that I've used it's the monistat chafing cream and I like the present much more)

I am very disappointed. I use this make up all the time, and usually buy it over the counter at Macy's or Nordstroms. For convenience, I decided to order it on line. I just opened it, and it is old or spoiled or something. Clear liquid or water is running out of the tube, the make up is thin. I have never had to "shake" this stuff before to get it to mix and I don't even know if shaking it will work. Will NOT buy makeup this way again!
