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’ve used this product 6X, via a sample tube. Beautiful coverage – sheer but enough to smooth out my red and freckles from the sun. I follow up the No Foundation Foundation with concealer on the spots that need extra coverage (around the nose area and under eyes). It is slightly sticky at first but it goes away quickly. No smell.

  2. I would be willing to give this a try.

  3. I think it sounds too good to be true. Finding a foundation for my complexion is darn near impossible!

  4. I have purchased this product and can tell you that I can see a positive change in my skin! Will buy again!

  5. I have just started using this line two days ago and already love it. I purchased the acne cleanser and toner. I am 40 years old and had my first baby at 39. My skin has been breaking out terribly ever since. I have spent a lot of money on every kind of cleanser and nothing has helped. some even made my skin worse. After just two days I already see a difference in my skin and I love the way it feels. Can’t wait to try the No foundation foundation and so may of the other products

  6. I have problems with acne and enlarged pores. will this product works for me?

  7. I just started using the no foundation foundation last week. What a difference in my skin already! I worked for a cosmetic company that blended custom foundation and it didn’t come close to this product. You can’t see it at all and it feels light as air on the skin and so natural looking. I just love it! I would love to try the other products you have.

  8. As a makeup artist and skincare sales rep., I am always trying to find the most effective and cutting edge products for my clients. I have read the Perricone Prescription and really believe the 3 tiered approach to the aging process is the most complete regimen I have come across. I was really excited when this product came out and couldn’t wait to try it. This is a beautiful foundation! The coverage is sheer to medium and the finish is very luminous. I LOVE complexion products infused with skincare ingredients. You are going to wear the makeup anyway, why not get amazing anti-aging benefits while you’re at it? This is a wonderful formula for all skin types and if you prefer a fuller coverage, use this product as a primer for a heavier foundation. It will create a barrier between your skincare and anything you put over the top of it. I would also HIGHLY recommend the tinted moisturizers from Perricone MD. The finish is dewy and the texture is unlike anything I have felt. Especially perfect for lackluster or drier skin types. Both are must haves!

  9. I would love to try this No Foundation. Im trying to not have to wear make-up anymore and have a beautiful glow to my skin. I think at age 60 my skin has seen enough makeup and the natural way would be just so perfect.

  10. Oh, the word foundation makes me nervous because I have never been able to find one that isn’t heavy, doesn’t look fake, and doesn’t clog my pores. The fact that this foundation is no foundation has me curious and thinking that his may be the one “foundation” that I can wear and be confident.

  11. This would be ideal for me. I would like to try and not have to wear makeup and have a glowing skin. I do have problem skin and this would help me while working on the areas that need help. I know this would definately be a wonderful product to us.

  12. Can’t wait to try this product. It’s always a challenge to apply a combination of skin care product, sunscreen, and makeup.

  13. This foundation sounds great. I have problems with my pores and have sun damage I need to hide. I hate the way foundation looks on my skin because of my pores. This seems like it would be perfect. I can’t wait to try it!

  14. I’ve been a faithful Perricone devotee since January of this year. My skin has finally become makeup optional. I would love a chance to try the doctor’s No Foundation Foundation as I hear this is what Dana uses. I’ve ordered the Tinted Moisturizer and would LOVE to add this product to my arsenal. Thank you Thank you Dr. Perricone. I owe my GREAT 54 year old skin *which looks much younger* to you. PLEASE, PLEASE PICK ME FOR THE NO FOUNDATION FOUNDATION. I will forever be grateful for the chance to try this!!! PS – I’ve followed you on Facebook and am a huge fan of every product I’ve purchased since January.. which is a lot! THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!

  15. [...] chance to win Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation & a re-realization that just because Im not into something it doesnt mean others wont [...]

  16. I have troublesome skin and am looking for the one foundation that I can depend on every day. I hate the way heavier foundations feel, but due to spots and discoloration, need some sort of coverage. Mineral makeups have a silly sheen to them; I’m getting too old for that. I’d love to try No Foundation Foundation!

  17. I’ve struggled many years to find a foundation that does not look pasty on my fair, freckled skin. Being a natural redhead, finding the right shade can be a challenge. I will try this proudct.

  18. I have been considering the No Foundation Foundation. The wrinkles around my eyes show more with my current foundation and would love to see what the No Foundation Foundation could do for me.

  19. I would love to try this product. I have been using a few of Dr P’s product for a couple of months now and love the difference in my skin. I have acne scars that I wish would fade or fill in and I think this No Foundation Foundation would be great for my skin type.

  20. I LOVE the new No Foundation Foundation! I received a sample with a purchase , used it and have already purchased the product.. I’ve tried lots of different makeup foundations over the years..this one is THE BEST ! Thank you!

  21. This product is amazing, I loved the way is made my skin feel and the sunscreen benefits were exactly what my dr. demands. The anti-aging bennies are exactly what I’ve come to expect from Dr. Perricone’s products, nothing but the best. HOWEVER, it comes up way too dark on my ultra-fair skin. It simply will not work for porcelain or ivory complexions so be sure to try before you buy. I didn’t. Instead, if you have very fair skin, go with Perricone’s Active Tinted Moisturizer in Light.

  22. No Foundation Foundation was my first Doc P. purchase, and this led to many more purchases of this fantastic line. I love the fact this product has SPF50, the highest level I have found in foundation or tinted moisturizer. I am very fair skinned and the tint in this product is a little off for my coloring so what I do is mix it half and half with my regular foundation. This makes the most marvelous combination and my makeup looks flawless. I have cut down on the amount of regular foundation applied too. The oily break thru I used to get before, is virtually eliminated with the No Foundation Foundation. I now have over 10 other Perricone MD products and my skin is finally responding to an anti aging program and looks and feels great! While listing other skincare regimes used, I could not believe the amount of products I have tested in the past and that is only the ones I could remember. I am sure that is a drop in the bucket. My mom jumped on the Perricone bandwagon back in the early ’90s when his first book came out and her 82 year old skin looks great. I kick myself everyday for being such a Perricone late bloomer! I am seeing great results after sixty days already. My product purchases are a little all over the map and really need some professional help with product selection.

  23. The addition of this product to my perricone regimen would be amazing. Thanks for all the detail on all of your products, it makes decision making a snap.

  24. I’ve always taken good care of my skin and I must admit that I also have good genes I was looking something special that would make my sking look radiant for my son’s wedding and a girl at Sak’s Phoenix, that had worked for Perricone products, told me to first go and buy The Perricone Prescription and found all he was about. I moved to the US six years ago but I’ve always known that Dr. Perricone is one or the one more prestigious dermatologists here. In Mexico City I had no problems with my skin because is humid. Here I’ve tried everything but nothing really worked. I read the book and starting buying the products and supplements. My retention of water is gone and I can see my cheek bones again and my shoes are all too large. The best compliment was when last week my best friend, who is a plastic surgeon, asked me what I was using in my face that I had such a special light. He told me as long as you keep that light your skin will always look young and that is something no surgery can give you. I would love to be a tester for all your products for mature women as I am not allergic to anything. I am 63 but most people think I am 50. Specially the no foundation foundation since I like light foundations. Now I am using the SKII which is the lightest I have found

  25. I’ve always taken good care of my skin and I must admit that I also have good genes as a Mexican since my skin is not olive but almost.

  27. Love to try this out. Was hoping to find it at Nordstrom’s for that instant gratification, but may just order online. I use your other sunscreen, but would appreciate the spf 30 with a subtle “no foundation, foundation.” You said it.
    Gratefully,
    Laurie

  28. I have used the Perricone products for several years now. People generally think I am at least 10 years younger than I am. I have olive skin and am blessed with small pores and no wrinkles, but I do have a little sagging around the mouth and jawline, as well as the very beginnings of some wrinkles under my eyes. The Perricone products tone and firm everything up and I just love them! I am very interested in trying out the No Foundation Foundation!!! I am so inspired by reading the first poster’s testimonial about the diet — I really need to get back to that! Thank you so much for all your wonderful products! I would love to be a tester for you anytime you need me!

  29. I went to the library & got all of Dr. Perricone’s books to read, signed up for the e-mail newsletters and am anxious to try the products!! The mushroom extract supplement is being shipped to my house every month, so hopefully that will help the weight in my stomach!!!! Would love to try the ant-aging products. have heard lots of good things from Sephora.

  30. I am a 63 yr. old grandmother and retired nurse. Everything I put in, or on my body has to meet some high standards, I want no fillers, chemicals etc. For that reason I started using Dr. Perricone products about two years ago. They have made a fabulous difference in my skin. My skin is fair, sensitive, I have redness issues and, I’m in battle with aging. His products are my complete arsenal and I am waiting on the delivery of the new foundation. (Very excited!) I always want to tell peole to not let the price of his products scare you. For one, they work! Amazing concept! And, they last forever, much much longer than any other high end product I have used. You can’t wait until “Later” to take care of your skin, your health. It takes maintaince, you can’t undo years of neglect. Start today.

  31. I am a licensed esthetician who has never used Dr. Perricone’s skincare products, on myself or otherwise. I am excited to try this No Foundation Foundation because I have diligently worked on my skin and have been looking for something that doesn’t seem caked on or unnatural. I’m hoping to purchase the product soon! Thanks for providing a wealth of information and a product line that I’ve heard fantastic things about!

  32. This product sounds so amazing! I’m a California girl with sun damaged skin and want to look natural but need that SPF!! Would love to try it.

  33. As a 41 year young South Asian-Indian woman, I struggle with finding skin care that works for me and foundations esp. that complement my skin tone. I need help w/large pores and yes acne even as I enter peri-menopause (who knew?). Dr. Perricone please help me test out your products! As a yoga therapist, I will be reporting results to my students! I’m looking forward to testing! Thank you!

  34. I’m a Perricone fan with just about all his books, DVD’s, CD’s & have tried, with much success, many of his cosmecuticals & supplements. When on the program, I see a big differnce in my skin & over-all well being. When falling off, well, it takes a few days but all does a 180. The program works & that is why I’d love to be on Dr. P’s testing new products team!

  35. I love the No Foundation Foundation. I am a light skinned black woman who is 65 years old. Usually I have two toned skin especially in the summer and I have normal to oily skin which appears oily because all of the moisturizers I’ve used. Applying this “foundation” makes my skin look natural and takes off the oily sheen. I now look natural which is what I like.

  36. I’m very interested in trying this foundation. I would like to minimize the appearance of budding age spots without the cosmetic cakey look.

  37. I would be very interested in trying this foundation. I work as a flight attendant and in the drying air on an airplane most foundations just don’t last(powders)-or look cakey(liquids) after hours on the plane. Being 52yrs I also have the usual complaints of wrinkles/large pores/breakouts in the T zone.I can’t afford to purchase another foundation that may or may not work – but if it works I’d be an enthuastic user/promoter!

  38. I have some acne scars and enlarged pores. Makeup seems to make this worse or looks matted on me. I use several Dr. Perricone products and love the way they work and last so long.

  39. I really want to try the No Foundation Foundation. I’m from Florida so I have a few sun spots so I wear foundation but it’s so discusting by the end of the day. It would be nice to have something that covers but is light and airy feeling.

  40. I’m going to my local Sephoria store to purchase the No Foundation foundation. I’ve read great things and can’t wait to try the product.

  41. This is a product I cannot wait to try! I like “the natural look”. At 44, I seek products that reduce the apperance of wrinkles and sagging. I use a foundation called “Traceless” but it has none of the advanced formulas of The Perricone products.
    I am happy to see your line available at Ulta!

  42. I can’t wait to try the No Foundation Foundation. I love Dr. Perricone products but hate the way foundation looks on my skin I want something that makes my skin look better without looking like there is a layer of makeup over the top of it. I’ve used the tinted moisturizer, which is great, it blends naturally but love that this has an SPF 30 since my nose always seems to burn. Dr. Perricone products are the best! They are the first products I actually use up and reorder because they do what they are supposed to do.

  43. I have been blessed that I found perricone products. I am in my 40′s and was trying everything to get rid of my large pores and the fine lines around my eyes. The sales clerk at sephora directed me to the face firming activator. I tired it and within a week I had others commenting on how radiant my skin looked so then I started using the nutrive cleanser and firming toner and the antioxidents and fish oils my skin just keeps getting better and better. Just 2 weeks ago I went on a girls shopping trip and picked up the no foundation foundation, after me using it the others wanted it also. It’s perfect for me because I like the natural look but need the coverage. I don’t like any heaviness on my skin and it feels like your natural dewy skin.
    try it I know you’ll love it too.

  44. I am interested in this product as well. Has anyone who has acne issues as well as wanting antiaging tried this? It sounds great, but I dont want to have acne issues.

  45. I like how this product using nonchemical SPF. I read this also recently won an award. Sounds like an unique product and a great idea!

  46. I am dying to try the No Foundation Foundation. Just came back from vacation with a great tan and my old foundation is too light. It would be great not having to worry about finding the right shade!!

  47. Sounds Fabulous!! I have olive colored skin and have found it hard to find a foundation that blends with my skin tone. Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation would solve my Foundation Dilemma!!

  48. This product is an amazing product! I have only heard RAVES about the dr. perricone products. I would love to try out this. Having foundation on and not have it feel like it’s foundation PLUS the wrinkle reducer? who can beat that? Being a mom of 3 and wife, it’s hard to try NOT to worry about life, let alone one’s appearance. Anything to assist to make life slightly easier would be wonderful.

  49. Finally, a foundation with sunscreen that looks natural. My face is flawless, moist and dewy. This is
    build-able and the color adapts to individual skin tone. Great product
    give it a try.

  50. I am a 29 year old female, wife, and mother of 2, currently on Dr. Perricones Weight Loss Diet. I am following the diet, supplement and exercise suggestions exactly as Dr. Perricone prescribes. After the 3rd day on the plan, I noticed how nice my skin felt. I am 6 days into the diet and I have already lost so many inches around my waist! My friends are already commenting on my new look. I have noticed less puffiness all over, and I am feeling centered and energetic. When I was 21 I started the Perricone Prescription after my mother had a heart attack at the age of 51. I wanted to make sure I gave myself the best foods and supplements to prevent future heart disease. I stayed on the diet for 6 years. I continued Dr. Perricone’s diet and supplementation during both of my pregnancy’s and was back down to a size 6, two short weeks after giving birth to each of my children. Currently, my 5 and 2 year old children love the meal plan. They devour the food! The entire time I was on the Perricone Prescription I was healthy, radiant, and people constantly asked me what I did to my skin (because it was always so luminous and soft.) For the last year and a half I have strayed from the eating plan and I have gained inflammatory weight around my middle, and started to notice changes in my skin and muscle tone. So, I decided to get back on track with Dr. Perricone’s Weight Loss Plan. I would love to test the skin care products to compliment the regime which I am already following! I have never tried any Perricone skin care proudcts but I am excited to try.
