[stextbox id=”custom”]As a dermatologist to some of the most famous faces in the world, their special needs often become inspiration for the creation of new products. When more than one celebrity make-up artist asked Dr. Perricone for a type of foundation that would let the skin’s natural radiance and beauty shine through, No Foundation Foundation was born.
Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this unique formula delivers many benefits of a traditional foundation without the heavy matte finish, which emphasizes the tiniest skin imperfections. No Foundation Foundation is a multi-purpose product that provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smoothes fine lines and boosts skin’s natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits.
“I took special care in formulating No Foundation Foundation with a non-chemical SPF 30 to deliver protection against sun damage, making it ideal for all skin types, even the most sensitive” – Dr. Perricone

When I first saw this product I was like what the hell is a no foundation foundation?? How does that work??? It supposed to be a universal “one shade fits all” anti-aging foundation that smoothes out your skin and gives you a natural look. Well it’s definitely not a foundation it’s more like a heavy moisturizer. There’s no color (maybe on lighter skintones) and no coverage. It’s basically a moisturizer that heals your skin and evens out your skintone.
No Foundation Foundation is very creamy, lightweight and applies like what? A moisturizer! I love that it comes with a pump, that is sooooo helpful. Just one pump per application is fine. It doesn’t settle into fine lines and it gave my skin a matte finish with just a hint of glow to it. It has SPF 30 so it’s perfect for the summer. I like it but $50?!?! Perricone MD is all about healthy skin and I can’t be mad at that so the pros outweigh the cons. If I had clear naturally gorgeous skin and didn’t need any foundations or powders I could justify the price. It you’re looking for a great summer moisturizer/foundation that heals and protects your skin you might want to consider taking the plunge.
