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. I’ve just brought your cold plasma package, no foundation foundation and the nourishing moisturiser. Hope i can be a a tester from the UK

  2. i had suferred from severe acne when i was young..i tried every treatment until one dermatologist suggested that i take vit a treatment for a period of 8 months,which i deed and it worked very well as the pimples were gone, but my problem i had been left with brownish marks and chloasma.each time i had to use make up to cover these impectionist.i am actually tired of using make u think if i can try your product my face might improve?

  3. I purchased the no foundation foundation as well as the kit including the eye serum, the am and pm serum and the bonus face moisturizer all from the shopping channel (cheapest price I found yet) and received them last week. Yesterday I finally tried the products out and they are absolutely amazing! I wish I had tried them out sooner because my skin never looked and felt so great till now! I have tried sooo many different foundations and products and seriously, nothing beats these products. I applied the serums and moisturizer and then applied the no fndtn fndtn. I have some discolouration on my face, a blotchy mark above my lip after pregnancy which really bothered me, as well as some redness, and this is the first time I actually felt a product has fixed all those problems for me…It may be costly but I will most definitely be purchasing again….a big huge thank you to Dr. Perricone!

  4. I have been looking for a good foundation that is age related – this sounds like a foundation that would not cake or feel like I have a mask on – look forward to trying it out

  5. Sign me up !!!

  6. I received this in the “Discover” kit that was on QVC – had my doubts because it’s supposed to be a “one size fits all” as far as shade. To my surprise, I really like it! It somehow seems to make my face appear brighter!

  7. Please make me a believer! I know Dr. Perricone’s products are popular, but I have yet to find a foundation/product that accommodates the best color for my skin tone. DMAE sounds quite interesting; so, I would love to try the product. I’m 49 years old and I have some blemish, dark circle, and wrinkle concerns. Thanks.

  9. I have only found 1 foundation that has ever work for me and did not make me look dead. N they no longer make it .I love make up but I just dont have money 2 waste looking and trying a 1000 foundation all to just be disappionted help me before i give up!

  10. As I get older every foundation/makeup I try seems to make me look even older by settling into fine lines, pores etc… It would be nice to see if there was actually a makeup out there that made your skin look better. Would love to try it.

  11. Have heard lots about this foundation recently. I am very intrigued as I have very fair skin and don’t see how one shade could work for all.

  12. Hate cakey makeup. Love the au natural look, but need slight coverage to hide skin imperfections. Would love to give it a try, if I can find my shade.

  13. I have read a few reviews and was glad to find this site with more information. I look forward to trying this product as I have always had trouble finding a good foundation for my fair skin that doesn’t look chalky or pasty.

  14. I would love to try your product but at $50 a pop and not many reviews done on African American skin i’m hesitant to purchase it.

  15. I have become very interested in trying your products…..I am tired of trying to find the right colored foundation and finding the correct type for my oily skin….before noon my skin is oily all over again and not fresh looking at all…help!!!may-be your product will be the answer I am needing….

  16. WoI sounds awesome I’ve heard great things I look forward to trying this soon

  17. It’s a real challenge to find a foundation that is suitable for my older (read: drier!) skin that it is still prone to break-outs. Mineral make-up solves the issue of breakouts, but tends to be drying. I love that No Foundation Foundation is a liquid that doesn’t encourage breakouts!

  18. Just tried the No Foundation Foundation, was very skeptical, but OMG, so fantastic! I hate foundations, but need something so even out my skin, and this covered yet did not plaster my skin. It is so natural looking, and I feel like my skin can still breath!

  19. I am very excited to try this no foundation foundation! How does Dr. Perricone products compare to Lancome? I am always on the lookout for a miracle and the recent technology is getting closer. There are so many products! It would cost a fortune to buy every new product on the market. Any information would be welcome!

  20. I do not want to mask my skin with makeup; I want to highlight great skin. This product seems like a great way to treat my skin while providing natural looking coverage. I also love that I will not have to switch shades depending on the season and my sun exposure. I love to share all my beauty finds with my friends and I am anxious to try this product.

  21. I just met my girlfriend for lunch and couldn’t believe how beautiful her skin looked. After much pestering from me to tell me what new expensive procedure she had done, she finally told me it was just her new foundation. I cant wait to try it myself!

  22. I have frequently been told that I have beautiful skin. I’ve also been told I look like I am 55 or 60 but certainly NOT 74! I am looking forward to trying Dr. Perricone’s No Foundation.

  23. My husband of 22yrs left me recently for a girl half his/& my age. The stress has taken its toll & unfortunately left my face/skin looking dull,tired & older than it should. I would LOVE to regain some of that youthful brightness, firm, more even toned appearance to my skin. It would not only lift my skins appearance but also my spirits…Wwho knows, maybe I’ll even find a boyfriend-a YOUNGER one! :)

  24. I am really interested in trying the No Foundation Foundation.I am currently using mineral makeup, which is certainly better than the old liquid makeup, but it doesn’t always cover very well. This looks like it would be good for my skin while making me look younger. Woo hoo!

  25. You had me at ‘perfect looking skin without the appearance of wearing makeup’. I think this is every woman’s dream, and if this product does everything it says and I could ditch my crippling fear of leaving the house without foundation, then I’d be an addict for life.

  26. I have tried so many foundations, from the cheap to the expensive. I still haven’t found anything that I just love! After reading about N Foundation Foundation, it seems like a miracle product! I have many girlfriends in the same boat I’m in, looking for that perfect foundation, and if I could try this and it is as amazing as it sounds, I could help them in their search as well!

  27. I would love to try your foundation. My skin is getting older and a few winkles, so it’s time to try something different that will cover better. Please let me give it a try. Thank you so much.

  28. Is there more than one color? Or how do you match?

  29. This product sounds like everything all rolled into one! Wow! I have yet to find a good foundation that works for me. I like the idea of not feeling like you’re wearing a mask or having a cakey feeling. The anti-aging is a huge bonus as well. I would be very excited to try this product!!

  30. I just got a sampler of dr. Perricone’s skin care and I received a small tube of the ‘no foundation foundation’ and just used it yesterday. I loved it! Unfortunately, I only have a small tube.:(. I would love to have more!:)
    I highly recommend this ” foundation”!!! It’s perfect for everyday!!

  31. I have heard wonderful things about this foundation and would love to try it. Being a woman over 60 years old and living in a tropical climate, finding a foundation that is light, but still gives good coverage without being ‘cakey’ is vital. Please let me try your product. Thank you.

  32. I have always gotten compliments on my skin – I am of dutch heritage and have never smoked and always taken vitamins, especially vitamin C, so it has a heads-up. BUT I am getting older and losing weight and it is not as firm or as pretty as it once was. HELP – I want to get it back to it’s previous glory.

  33. I hate makeup that feels heavy and this sounds like it would be great!

  34. I am 62 years old, still having breakouts occasionally. I get a facial monthly to try to minimize my pores as I have tried all sorts of foundations from liquids to powders, inexpensive to expensive brands and have given up on makeup. Does this product really do as it is advertised?

  35. I am pretty minimalist (lazy) about makeup, but I work in a professional position where I need to look “put together.” Also, I just turned 40 this year and am finally heeding the warnings about skin cancer and the need for sun screen every day. This sounds like it might be the perfect product to not look overdone, moisturize, defeat wrinkles, and prevent new wrinkles, AND only spend a minute to get all the benefits.

  36. I absolutely love the idea of this being a lightweight foundation that is GOOD for your skin!!! I also love the fact that there is no color choice and it adapts to your skin color…that is great!!! How many times have we all bought foundation only to try it on and realize that it is either so dark it leaves a line of demarcation or it’s so light it makes you look like a ghoul!!! I tried Dr. Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation in a sample size and absolutely LOVE it!!!

  37. I would really love to try this! It sounds like it will be a great way to even out my complexion and have that healthy glow. Hopefully it’s not sticky.

  38. There are so many beauty products on the market these days that it can become an overwhelming process to find one that meets my needs. Last year I gave birth to my first child which has only made the time and search for beauty products more complicated. I like the approach of a product which is part of a system, something that looks to the diet and environmental factors that also play a key role in our skins health. I think that allowing potential customers to test products is a smart move as it helps the marketing become a real experience, by allowing women (or men) to have real conversations with others in order to help communicate the benefits of the particular product

  39. Love and respect dr. perricone greatly would love to try all of the products not only for myself but for my clients as well I am currently studying aesthetics

  40. Since I have been unable to find a foundation that doesn’t feel like a weighted mask in the last 3 years, I would be very interested in trying this new product!

  41. I am retired and looking for value. Currently I use mineral make up. No foundation sounds like a wonderful product, I would like to try it.

  42. I would love to try the no-foundation -foundation. I have extremely dry skin with redness and have not been able to find a foundation that works!

  43. I would be more than happy to try your product No Foundation Foundation. I am 23 and I still have acne problem and I tried tons of various products to cove it. It is the dream of my life to have beautiful skin. And I will be so thankful if you can help my dream to come true. Because I am already ready to give up.
    Thank you

  44. I would love to try this product! I have a hard time finding a foundation to match my combination/aging skin that looks natural too. This would be great!

  45. I can’t stand having to apply a thick foundation that makes you feel like a cake being frosted. If I can apply a translucent no-foundation foundation, and achieve greater results, you can count me in. Healthy looking skin that others stop you and ask, “what do you do to your face to have it glow as it does?” I share one word, ” Perricone….”

  46. I am at a point where I am tired of heavy foundations. I’ve tried nearly every product out there. I am excited to discover Perricone MD’s No Foundation Foundation for my combination skin and would love to become a Perricone tester! I can’ wait to try it!

  47. Would love to try this product!

  48. This product looks amazing! I would also love to try it. My skin is fussy! I inherited large pores and combination skin. I grew up in the south and sunscreen wasn’t really talked about. We would spend the entire day on the beach applying then reapplying oil :( It is no wonder that I have sun damage!

  49. I have just found out about your products and needless to say I am intrigued. Living in an area where it gets to -40 and lower with the wind chill and up to 45C in the summer puts ones skin through some trying times. I have some serious hormone issues and am looking for a product that has no estrogen or estrogen dirivatives in it. Can this be the product I am looking for?? Would love to know!!

  50. I have read and watched all the info on the no foundation foundation. I would love to try it. I have tried many products and have never gotton that “wow” I absolutely love this. I work for a cosmetic surgeon and have access to many great products.
    I want something that is light with the right amount of coverage, which also provides all the great benefits of spf and anti aging.
    I would love the opportunity to try this amazing product.
