How No Foundation Foundation Works

This lightweight defensive solution is formulated with antioxidants, non-chemical sunscreen protection and specially-treated pigments, fused with light-diffusing mica.

These key sciences work together to create an absolutely flawless finish:

1. Alpha Lipoic Acid (Patented):

  • Provides antioxidant protection from skin damaging free radicals
  • Reduces wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, puffiness and discoloration
  • Smooths skin texture
  • Evens skin tone and imperfections

2. DMAE

  • Tightens and lifts skin
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

To learn more about DMAE, watch this video:


3. Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide

These two ingredients offer non-chemical, SPF 30 broad spectrum UV protection. Unlike chemical sun protectants, which get absorbed into the skin, these non-chemical ingredients sit on top of skin acting as a natural barrier against sun rays as they deflect the rays away from the skin.

New York Magazine – “No Foundation Foundation ($50) is a true testament that one foundation can indeed be worn by different complexions. Our panel of testers ranged from pale white to dark-skinned black, with some olive and tan tones thrown in for good measure. Surprisingly, the foundation blended with everyone’s skin, and coverage was subtle and natural looking.” Read more at NYMag.com >>

Gives me a “natural but better look” – “I love that in one step I can apply my sunscreen and foundation…I have noticed an improvement in overall tone and appearance of my skin since I’ve been using it as well. So at this point, even though it’s very expensive I would repurchase.” Read more at Makeupalley.com >>

I love the SPF 30 – “…No streaking, almost impossible to detect, however it did even my skintone and just made my face look better. Not tight and drying, and not greasy and slick, it is the perfect ‘non foundation’ for hot summer days…” Read more at Makeupalley.com >>

  1. I was given a sample of this item and it worked wonderfully. It made my skin seem so vibrant and youthful and not dull like other foundations. I loved it. It seemed a little grainy though, a friend of mine gave me hers and it was smooth. So I think I may have had one that was a bad batch. But I still liked it.

  2. I must admit-at first I was so sceptical about No Foundation Foundation but I decided to give it a go after reading few comments on one of the selling websites. By then I’ve tried so many things and none ever worked for me. I have extremely oily skin and always ended up looking extremely radiant but in a worst possible way where everything I put on my face just ends up sliding off by noon. There were only few people that claimed that keeps the oiliness at bay where other few claimed the opposite but even so I still though I have nothing to loose to try another product that claims to do the job..and to my greatest surprised ever I never turned back since…I just can’t leave without this product anymore!! I even tried not to use it after some time thinking that maybe its my skin that changed therefore I am just wasting my money but soon as I went back to other things my oiliness was instant! No point risking it as I never felt better about my face since I’ve started to use this product – I just love the feeling of feeling ‘light’ and tidy.

  3. I ordered several products from an add from TV. I especially liked the citrus wash and no foundation foundation. The cost of the products was outside my budget so only ordered once. I am thinking though of ordering just the no foundation foundaion.

  4. Haven’t tried this yet but am very excited to do so. As soon as I can, will be getting…

  5. A friend let me try this product from her SubD order. It is amazing. I live on a tight budget. So a product like this is a little expensive for me. But I’m hooked after only one try and I’m pinching pennies everywhere to save enough money to buy this product for myself. And I can’t wait to have it as a no make-up foundation for myself.

  6. LOVE TO TRY THE FOUNDATION NO FOUNDATION
    AS THE FOUNDATION I USE NOW-CAKE’S ON MY FACE’THE SUN MAKES IT EVEN WORSE-AM A YOUNG 82 YR-NEED TO TRY THIS-USE PERRICONE PRODUCT NOW-AM A SENIOR WITH LOW INCOME
    SOUNDS THO BE AN ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM–THANKS

  7. I am 48 years old and struggle with finding the “right” foundation I’d live to try this. It sounds great. Thanks.

  8. I am excited to try this foundation. I love the concept of a foundation that makes your skin look fresh, even and clean..so much better than looking made up. I believe that as we get a little older it is more youthful to wear less makeup. I don’t want people to even notice my makeup…just me!

  11. I would love to try this No Foundation Foundation, I have tried several foundations to never find anything that I truly like. I have senstive acne prone fair skin. I love Perricone products and I am sure I will love this too !

  12. Being a tanning bed junkie in my early years I would love to try this!!

  13. The No Foundation Foundation is fabulous. I have used the product for over one year. It gives my skin a nice glow while poviding sun protection. The color looks so natural. Many people give me positive comments on my skin. Thanks, Dr. Perricone!

  14. My friend let me try her bottle of “No Foundation Foundation” I was skeptical at first that it would make my skin look better. After one application I saw how it looked radiant and gave it a healthy glow and feel. I would highly recommend this product to other women. I would love to win so I can continue using this great product.

  15. I am going to turn 60 (YIKES! I SAID IT OUT LOUD) in a few months and have tried every foundation at the department stores, Clinque, Lancome, you name it and it all settles in my fine wrinkle and looks cakey. Please choose me to try this No Foundation Foundation! I need to look pretty not “old” for my bday party! Thank you !!

  16. I am fair with sensitive skin. I have tried many foudations and nothing has really worked for me. I would love to test your product!

  17. I luv, luv, luv this foundation.

  18. [...] It is a widely known fact that another major precipitator of adult female acne is cosmetics. Why else would so many cosmetic companies herald their products with the rallying cry noncomedogenic! (a fancy way of saying “won’t clog pores”)? However, despite using cosmetics containing non-comedogenic ingredients, many women do end up suffering from acne. I always make it a point to look at the ingredients in my female patients’ cosmetics because many beauty products contain acne-inducing substances. These ingredients notwithstanding, it should be noted that the anti-inflammatory diet will greatly reduce susceptibility to comedogenic agents. And I am happy to report that the majority of my adult female patients who follow the anti-inflammatory diet are so happy with the resulting increase of radiance in their skin they no longer need to wear foundation. (check out no foundation foundation). [...]

  19. I just want to tell everyone, I love Dr. Perricone products, especially No Foundation Foundation. The reason is because I love it when I’m on an airplane or at work, a stranger will stop me and say, “I love your skin, please tell me what product you use?” I’ll say Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation!!! The truth is I don’t wake up every morning with gorgeous skin, I have to work at it, but putting this product on my face seems to fade out any discoloration on my face, like hyper pigmentation on my forehead. Trust me, I’d rather spend $55.00 on No Foundation Foundation that my makes my face glow, feels soft, and has SPF 30 than $20.00 for a foundation that cakes on and ontop of that might have to worry about clogging my pores, which means I’ll be spending more money on creams trying to unplug my pores. Trust me, this product has made me a happier individual because it makes me feel good when people compliment my skin. I want to say thankyou Dr. Perricone for helping a lot of people, myself included!!!!!! Kind regards, Heather J.

  20. I have been using powder as a base for years but still break out and my pores show through. I would love to try this and see if it helps in these areas.

  21. My niece gave me a sample and encouraged me to use it, as for ‘older women, less is more’. It blended into my skin perfectly and gave me a youthful dewy look that I haven’t possessed for a long time. I love it! What more can I say?

  22. I just turned 50 a few weeks ago and have never been a fan of foundation,I have tried every foundation imaginable for the last 35 years and have never been able to find a product that matches my skin tone or doesn’t look too matte or too oily or cover what I need covered. None of them do what they claim. I’ve given up trying to find the coverage as well as help my skin. I would love to be considered as a tester and end my search for the dewy, luminous, sheer coverage I’ve always wanted. Thank you!!

  24. I’ve heard so many wonderful things from a few friends who love No Foundation Foundation, their skin always looks flawless.

  25. I’ve heard so many wonderful things from a few friends who love No Foundation Foundation, their skin always looks flawless. I just turned 50 a few weeks ago and have never been a fan of foundation, fortunately genetics has blessed me with good skin that didn’t need foundation but I’ve always had little issues that have needed coverage. I use it sparingly to cover certain skin issues such redness, dark circles, dark spots, minor sun damage. I have tried every foundation imaginable for the last 35 years and have never been able to find a product that matches my skin tone or doesn’t look too matte or too oily or cover what I need covered. I’ve tried every brand out there, spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars at high end department store cosmetic counters as well as drugstores and none of them do what they claim. Now that I’m older my skin is starting to look and feel older and , don’t really have too many lines or wrinkles but I’m noticing a lot of blotchyness and redness and texture has changed and elasticity. I’ve always taken care of my skin and I’ve given up trying to find the the right product that will give me the coverage that I need and help my skin. I’ve never found that dewy, luminous, sheer natural coverage I’ve always wanted. I would love to be considered as a tester and end my search for the perfect No Foundation Foundation, name says it all, it’s what I think all women want! Thank you!!

  26. I can’t WAIT to try this product! I have skin and have tried just about every foundation out there. They either make me look pale dead or too dark! Would love to try it!

  27. I can’t WAIT to try this product! I have a very weird undercolor to my skin and have tried just about every foundation out there. They either make me look pale dead or too dark! Would love to try it!

  28. I have been dying to try this foundation. I think this is exactly what I have been looking for. I have tried numerous foundations and now being in my 50′s I need a more sheer foundation that leaves a dewy look and does not show every wrinkle. I have sold cosmetics in the past so I know what looks good and what does not and heavy or matte foundation does not, on anyone. I truly hope you pick me to try this foundation and hopefully become a customer for life!!

  29. I am in love with Dr Pericone’s foundation no foundation…..would never buy anything else

  30. Absolutely love this foundation….no layering with greasy sunblock as product contains SPF30.
    Also love not having to match the colour to skin tone,and the fresh dewey no makeup look, which imparts a healthy glow instead of matt look with some other brands.

  31. I initially tried this product in Sephora and I LOVED IT!! It IS pricey, but there is NO other product like it! I take pride in my good clear skin (although at 50 I do have some ‘spots’, and I’m not obsessive about getting dermabrasion or other procedures, so there are flaws, but still, this product gives my middle-aged, (often dehydrated) skin such a healthy nice, natural looking dewy glow! I love makeup but have come to feel that most (all!) foundations make my skin look WORSE; dry and spackl-y, but this one makes my skin look wonderful; not like I am trying to conceal flaws. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS STUFF!

  32. I have always thought less is better when it came to makeup. The most important thing for me was to have my skin look good not my makeup if you know what I mean. My mother gave me a bottle of the No Foundation foundation. I wore it one day and I asked her if my skin looked dull or my pores looked bad. She said no I was noticing how good your skin looked today. thats when I told her I had used the product she had given me. Anyway, this stuff is amazing it feels like nothing and you don’t look made up but your skin looks even toned and smooth. I love it.
    Thank you Dr. Perricone
