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


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

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.

Recent Reviews

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

  1. BRILLIANT!!! I am an aesthetician and have been looking for a miracle product like this and I think I just found it! My clients will be so relieved to know they can. Even out their skin tone and improve the health of their skin all at the same time. Looking forward to trying your product!
    Love and light,

  2. I had a baby at 41 and I am not sure if it is my age or having the baby that has left my skin in serious need of some TLC. I went to a dermatologist, but she told me to use something that had a bunch of steroids in it.Not only do I not want to put it on my skin I am breastfeeding and when I googled the ointment it said do not use if breastfeeding…so why would she prescribe? Anyway, I have tried several of Dr. Perricone, M.D. in the past and am saving up money to order them again. I so badly want to try the foundation. Maybe it would make me feel a little better when I look in the mirror. I have not slep in awhile and I just look like an old mommy and that is so not how I want to look. I would be a pefect tester as my skin has really taken a toll over the last few years. Thanks!!!! Here is to the Dr. Youth! WE LOVE YOU!

  3. Looking for a foundation that islight, evens out skintone, and minimizes pores. Would LOVE to try the No Foundation Foundation.

  4. I would love to try the No Foundation Foundation. I have spent a lot more than $50 trying different brands and nothing works. I want to use a foundation that is actually good for my skin and not just a cover up. My skin is oily and I have had acne and still have occasional breakouts.
    Thank you for your consideration

  5. I would love to try the no-foundation -foundation. I have some brown spots any other foundation makes me look cakey. Once again this may be the product for me which I would love to experience. thanks J. M


  7. I’ve looked all over for a healthy glowing coverage for my face, particularly one that contains a sunscreen and nongreasy. I would love to try this!!!

  8. Sounds awesome!!! I’m a teen who loves wearing makeup but can as im reaching 20 I can see my makeup is actually affecting my face, would really like to try this!!!

  9. I picked up a sample from Sephora along with a sample for Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation. No Foundation Foundation is a far superior product. The Matchmaker product settled in my fine lines and wrinkles and was not as easy to apply. The texture of No Foundation Foundation is slightly tacky and I lightly brushed on a finishing powder it held the powder in place all day. 10 hours into my day my make-up looked as fresh as it did when I applied it. This is the first Perricone product I’ve tried and I love it.

  10. I live in Hawaii and am tired of trying to use foundations that get too oily or streaky by the end of the day; with our sunny days, SPF is a must and to have this all in one–correct color and sun protection, without feeling heavy would be heaven! Want to try this! Aloha!

  11. I spend a lot of time outdoors and still want to look presentable but don’t want the hassle of makeup! I would love to try this product before making a purchase.

  12. It sounds PERFECT for me. I would love to try it!!

  13. If this really works than I want it!!! :)

  14. sounds ideal but i am a little skeptical, worth every penny if it does exactly what it says

  15. I received Dr. Perricone’s no foundation foundation as a gift from my sister for mothers day, I have been using it for a little over 3 weeks and I love it!!! My skin is so much more dewy and even toned its the best!! Can’t wait to try other products!!

  16. I am 64 yrs. Old and would love to try this no foundation, I sure have tried everything else and have yet to find the right foundation, if there is such a product! I would love to try it before I buy it!!

  17. It’s the GREATEST! Hate foundation, but as you age, more & more spots appear, plus the fine wrinkles. Regualr foundation feels like a mask, but this stuff is Awesome, Covers & Corrects the issues. What more can you ask for.

  18. I just LOVE this! I have been a LOYAL user of another foundation for 20 years and truied this because I love Dr. Perricone products. I will NEVER go back. This is truly the best foundation I have ever used!!!

  19. I never wear a foundation. Why not? I am almost 55yrs.My skin is now starting to look its age fine lines,uneven skin tone,dark circles under the eyes,etc..I would love to find something to wear that would help/hide as much as it could.I have tried at least 50 differnts kinds of foundations,they all tend to make my skin look even older and add weird colors,feels alwful,like halloween make up.What a waste of time&money! Am about to give up,unless..

  20. I just read that this product is a favorite of Eva Mendes, and who doesn’t want to look like she does, skin-wise at least? So I ordered a trial size and can’t wait to see if this is my answer to an easy summer look, as tinted moisturizers aren’t the answer to my oily skin, and I would like to appear bright and sunny without heavy masking.

  21. I would love to give Perricone no foundation foundation a try as I have psoriasis to cover and find that other foundations simply soak into my dry skin and disappear. Therefore I have never found a foundation that I am prepared to re-buy. I love the idea of Perricone being more a hydrating and norishing treatment based skin corrector. Lets put the claims to a proper idustrial strength test on clinically dry skin and open the market up to problem skins.

  22. I am 53 and would love a chance to try something new for my skin! Just purchased the “Perricone Weight Loss Diet” and I have anxiously been reading and ready to apply the methods he prescribes! This foundation sounds perfect for my skin.

  23. I am 72 years old, and most foundations look masky on me, but I need something to tone down slight redness, and some uneven skin tones.

  24. Many women fear aging but my goal is to do it as subtly as possible. If this product can provide a smooth and even face for all that it is a middle aged women’s dream come true. I really love the fact that it fits all skin tones as with the changing seasons so comes changing complexion shades. Having only one foundation that I can depend on in my makeup case would help simplify my mornings. I would love to give it a trial run.

  25. I recently purchased 3 Perricone products – face wash, toner and no foundation foundation. I woke up this morning with a horrible reaction. My face is red,swollen and has bumps everywhere from my forehead down to my neck. Has anyone else had this sort of allergic reaction? I wish I could tell which of the 3 if of all caused it. I hear such wonderful things about this product and hate to discontinue it.

  26. 42 years old and a week away from becoming a granny, i feel as though i`ve gone from young to old in only a few weeks! this foundation sounds as though it could be just the boost my skin and my morale could do with. i have used powder mineral foundation for about 10 years, but my youngest daughter(14) has started commenting that it is too powdery and heavy on me now so i have been on the look out for something that will do all that a foundation should, but without the heavy look. could this really be it?!!

  27. I have tried every foundation under the sun pretty much, and they all seem to dry out my skin. I would love to try some of this and hopefully this foundation will be my night in shining armour. I have spent so much money over the years on products that do nothing but irritate my skin. I have tried the Perricone Cold Plasma and absolutely LOVE LOVE that product! I would be a prime candidate for testing skin care products or cosmetics because if I can use it and have results, then anyone can! Thank you for all of your wonderful products Dr. Perricone!

  28. I’ve tried every foundation Estee Lauder makes, and most of Clinique’s as well, plus many drugstore brands. Everything sits on my face like a mask (the kabuki description was very fitting!) I’m 56 and have a lot of redness in my fair skin. sometimes I look like a ghost, and others like I’ve just finished a workout. I’d love to try your product to see if it would help even out my skin tones. Please help! Thank you!

  29. I would like to try this product since I tend to have facial sweating. I’m a big fan of his books that tend to deliver more than what they promise. It would be nice to have something to consider to use again, as I have stopped using foundation because of my problem.

  30. This sounds like a great foundation. I love that it has anti-aging properties while giving a great coverage. I would love to try this.

  31. I am curious as to how the no works..With all the different shades of normal can this be a one size fits all..As I said I am curious about this product and honestly would like to know.
    I do not normally wear foundation because it feels like I have a mud pack on my face..but with the 40′s on the horizon..fine lines..some wrinkles..thought it might be a good time to look into something I can at least tolerate.

  32. Ive not tried Perricone products before–but this product could make me a believer. I’m a professor–giving lectures and presentations in front of many people (mostly male). I want them to see me, not my makeup. This product sounds perfect!

  33. I received this product as a sample in one of my Sephora online purchases. I wasn’t sure what it was, so I didn’t use it right away. And then one day, I needed some spf on my face and saw that it said it contained SPF 30, and I have used it ever since. I absolutely love it. It makes my face and skin look great. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Though, it is pricey; I really think it is worth it.

  34. I have lupus and sjogrens syndrome. My skin is dry and foundation makeup just make my face look even more Blah! than it already is. I read an article in the doctors office about this special foundation by Dr Perricone and wondered if it would make a difference in my life.
    I would like to have the privilege of testing this researched creation by your labs. Because my skin is mature doesn’t mean it can’t be nurtured and become more youthful,does it?

  35. Have a few issues with my middle aged skin, redness,unevenness and of course fine lines, and dry skin, all of which I am looking to improve with a one step foundation/sunscreen/moisturizer combination in one easy step to improved looking skin, your product sounds like it would definatly fit the this criteria, therefor I’d love to became Perricone MD tester.

    Thank you


  36. Hi today I visisted ur website for the first time. I’m a mess and am wanting to try something to get my health back. I stumbled on the no foundation foundation. I looks great! I don’t like the feel of any other foundation so id love to try this one! Thank you!


  37. I would love to try this product. I do not like a lot a makeup, and it is important to me to have a chemical free sunscreen. It is the best of both worlds pretty protected, low- maintence skin from one product. It is a reasonable price for us who can not afford the 200 dollars for makeup and skin care products.

  38. I’m trying out this No Foundation Foundation for the first time. I wanted a tinted moisturizer without a chemical sunscreen and No Foundation Foundation worked beautifully for me. My skin felt soft and while t didn’t cover up all of skin faults, it did make my skin look more even.

  39. I am 53 years old suffering with aging skin. The foundations I have been using tend to look like a mask and do not enhance my skin. Please select myself to sample your foundation.

  40. I recently went with my wife shopping who wanting to find a really good anti-wrinkle cream for around her eyes. After lisening to the sells lady about this product I decided that I would also be interested in using this product to see if it too would help my skin to look younger and more refreshed. After just retiring from being a business owner for almost 30 years, I feel I would be a good candidate to try and see if the product could help take away many years of stress and help me look and feel better about myself. My wife has always been told how beautiful her skin is and how young she looks. I too would love to look as good as she does and also show others how well the product works. Thank you Dr. Perricone!

  41. I am in good health having overcome breast cancer. The drug, Tamoxifen, causes my skin to become reddened and flushed. I’m wondering if ‘No Foundation Foundation’ would provide a calming effect as well as providing a natural, translucent coverage?
    May I try a sample before purchasing?
    Best Wishes.
    Glynis. (Aged 59) And loving Life!

  42. Would love to give this a try! Sounds like an incredible product!

  43. Love the idea of light coverage combined with anti-aging sun protection of spf30!

  44. I’m intrigued by your new No Foundation Foundation, since all foundations I have tried look very aging and heavy. I have yet to find a good color match for my skin and would love To try this product !

  45. Just how could it get any better than this! I am so anxious to try this latest miracle out!

  46. I love this product! I am very diligent about my skin care regimen, and I like very little make up, so this is a huge winner for me! I would love to be a tester!

  47. I need this product because I have bad roscea and using makeup to cover it up makes it worse sometimes and that usually lands me in my Dermatologists office working on the repair of the flare-ups. Going without anything is a nightmare so, I choose not to do that and I pay for it at times. This sounds like something I might be able to actually use and not be afraid of the consequences. I respect Dr. Perricone’s professional status and love reading his books and articles. I hope I get to try some of this “magical fairy dust” and love it so I can be a reviewer for him and this site.

  48. I have Sjogrens disease, which is dry skin, dry mouth and dry eyes. I have this problem due to other medical issues(RA and Osteoporosis). I have dealt with these issues for the last 30 years and my skin is the biggest problem I have. I have a hard time finding any type of moisturizer or foundation that doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and showing all the wrinkles. I currently use a mineral makeup because any liquid foundation shows all my wrinkles. I would love to try this product to see if it stands up to all of it’s claims. Thanks for the chance to try this product.

  49. I couldn’t tell you the number of foundations I have tried trying to find something that looked natural and glowing, yet covered my fine lines and wrinkles. i would love to try this product.

  50. I just moved from NYC to Las Vegas Nevada, and my skin is suffering! I currently use a powder foundation and need help finding the best product for coverage with SPF protection in such a harsh environment! I think Dr. Perricone’s No foundation foundation may be what I need…Help!
