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.

aSay “no” to ordinary, heavy foundations with No Foundation Foundation—advanced science; simple application.

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 >>

  3. I’ve always been interested in trying the Perricone foundation because I have such a hard time finding a foundation that matches, covers, AND feels lightweight. I believe in a good skin regimine and trying to keep skin as healty as possible. I would love to try this Perricone product to see if it lives up to all the hype!

  4. This product sounds wonderful. I have been looking for a foundation that evens out my skin tone without making me appear heavily made-up. I believe that “less is more” as you age, especially as many products only wind up accentuating your pores and fine lines. I was hoping to find a sample size to purchase, but the next best thing would be becoming a tester. Thanks for considering me!

  5. I have tried his moisturer and found it tobe the best I have ever used Love his books and I would love to try this foundation I am looking for a good price on it to try it I am 65 years old and have really good skin but sensitive to many other products thank you

  6. I have clients who absolutely love your products. I would love to try them out, 2 kids school runs back and fro to clubs and sports and what have you I don’t have time for a lengthy skin care regime, so think this line would be purrrfect for me..

  7. Oh, my! Again, I am amazed at another Perricone product! This foundation is unbelievable! It’s weightless and the perfect texture! The color adjusted to my exact skin tone. I let my mother try it, who typically wears two shades darker than me, and it was perfect on her, too! We’re sold!

  8. The formula along with the name of No Foundation Foundation is a truly unique and nothing short of amazing product. I truly believe that every woman deserves discovering the benefits of using this great foundation.

  9. I would love to try this product. I am a big fan of Perricone MD. I am using lot of skin care products but have never tried make up line. Wish I could be the lucky one to try this foundation.

  10. I have tried samples of No Foundation at Sephora. It does what it says and is very natural looking. I recommend this product to anyone. Makes you look effortlessly put together and professional.

  11. I’d love to try this product. Have 5 kids and no time to go in for a skin match at the department store

  12. I would love to try something that will make my face look fabulous!!!!

  13. I have tried foundations over and over and only see more wrinkles come through and not nice skin as they say that will happen. I do not know what kind to use to make my skin look better and cover but not a thick coverage that actually makes you look older. I am 57 and have NEVER found a foundation that works to make me look better so I just do not use it. I hope you consider me as it would be so wonderful to actually try out a foundation that makes me look better not worse!!!!!

  14. I enjoy no foundation foundation because it feels fresh, and light, and has toning power, you can feel your face tightning. I felt younger w/the first application. I Love your products, and plan on expanding my collection of it into full sizes. I am so glad someone cares about our skin so much that He invested years until he got the perfect prescription for every skin type, and I feel blessed to wear it. Thank you Dr. Perricone, you have helped in making me feel like a new, and better person.:)

  15. After a life long quest to find the best foundation for my oily skin, I read in a magazine about Perricone No Foundation Foundation and after some delibearation got it. I was sceptical at first but it has been doing the trick! It covers my face beautifully and lasts all day. I would like to venture into trying some of their face creams.

  16. I am 63 and although I have quite a good complexion my main problem is lines around my mouth. Would Foundation no Foundation help.


  17. I am just hearing about this produce and will definitely try it. I am almost 65 and have some red dots and uneven skin tone. I don’t really like any of the foundations I have tried, some are too heavy and others don’t do anything. Could this be the product that fits the bill?

  18. This product sounds intriguing! I would be interested in trying it. Have any of the commentators here tried it and liked it?

  19. I’m 50 and have yet to find a foundation that doesn’t feel like goop. I’m not giving up just yet though.

  20. I am 36 Yrs old and live in Florida. It is HOT, sunny and NOT good for the skin at all! I have a light skin tone and I find it VERY hard to find foundation/make-up that matches. I have freckles, wonderfull dark (under-eye) circles AND lovely age spots. HELP! I WOULD LOVE TO BE A TESTER FOR YOUR FAB-U PRODUCTS!!! :)

  21. I saw many of Dr. Perricone’s products on QVC the other night and wanted to place an order but had to pay bills instead. I would love to become a Perricone tester, though! (And now that the bills are paid, I’d like to purchase something I saw on QVC, but I couldn’t seem to find what I was looking for on their website…maybe they sold out:-(.) Looking forward to the possibility of being selected as one of your testers:-)!

  22. I am tired of using loads of liquid / powder foundations with no sucess. I would love to find one which could match my skin tone and at the same time give me a natural coverage. Would the No Foundation Foundation be the one?

  23. cleaners do both. And no mattre how much we try to clean our face and prnveet gunk, it’ll come back do you have an oily face? Just asking. If you do it’s good to use an astringent. It’s really strong, but it works.

  24. No Foundation Foundation works for me. It makes my skin darker, when I take it off I look pale. I like the fact that it has sunscreen in it.

    Would be great to have a lighter shade, but I will continue to use what is available. I love it.

  25. I would love to try this. Hope it’s moisturizing enough for dry skin!

  26. As an over 50 y/o woman I am constantly looking for a way to get a nice face without alot of products. This sounds like it has many benefits and would be a great product.

  27. I have seen this product many times, but I am just so dubious. Can this really cover what needs to be covered? I trust Perricone, but I just know my skin. I’m curious about other people’s experiences with coverage of uneven skintone and redness.

  28. That’s so cool! I would try it, but it’s a bit expensive for daily usage. It wouldn’t be hard to find your perfect shade with that foundation!

  29. I would love to become a tester. I’m 28 and have never found a foundation that worked well for me. I usually have to mix colors to match my skin tone, so the no foundation foundation sounds appealing because it matches all skin tones!

  30. I have tried and used numerous liquid foundations in my 51 years but this is the most perfect foundation EVER!! No Foundation Foundation has great coverage when needed but also natural looking. If you have not tried the No Concealer Concealer, that is another must!! I love both products.

  31. Would love to be a product tester especially since I am no 41 and need to find a product for a more mature skin and this appears to be the best so far

  32. [...] it, now you don’t! Harry Houdini’s magic act has nothing on the amazing translucent coverage of Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. The foundation allows the natural health and glow of skin to shine through while protecting the [...]

  33. I need the perricone md no foundation foundation because my face needs this wonderful coverage to enhance my features and hide my flaws while still looking natural as the mother of the bride.

  34. This product is absolutely amazing….I love it.
    I was given a sample when i purchased other Perricone products & have had positive comments from Day 1….no more oily shine or dull matt appearance.

    My daughter & her friends are now fans also as it suits all ages & skin types….love that there’s SPF 30 as well.

    I’m a fan

  35. I want to have a flawless dewy finish, smooth, radiant and beautiful skin for the first time in my life time with this powerful product!

  36. What a smooth, light,creamy & dreamy alternate to most heavy foundations. No foundation foundation is exactly what it says. An airy feel that gives you just enough dewy coverage. My favorite of all times. I will be purchasing again for about the 6th time. I never want to be without this foundation.

  37. I have been disappointed with other foundations now that I am 65 and just diagnosed with gluten intolerance and rosacia I am really searching for the best product for me and would love to share my findings with the rest of my Celiac group. Please, I would love to try your no foundation foundation. Thank You!

  38. I normally don’t use much make-up but needed something to even out skin and make it look better. I received a sample of no foundation foundation when I purchased Cold Plasma, which I love. It is so easy to put on and don’t need to worry about missed spots, looks great and has a spf. Thank you for a great product, and only need to use a little

  39. Today was my first day using the product,the color appeared slightly light on me..therefore I used it as a primer.It worked very well, reduced the appearance of my pores,gave a dewy finish and best of all it did not run when I sweat.

  40. Dr. Perricone I have pigmented skin due to poor choices in dealing with past acne. I am 34 years old and CANNOT leave the house without makeup. Currently I am SEARCHING for a lighter and healthier option for my skin and would love to try your products. I have used everything from drugstore brands to high end and have yet to find satisfaction. I have really high hopes that this is where my problem with my skin ends.

  41. I have been seeing my face lose its firmness… I have been under a lot of stress, and I just look old and tired. I am a young 48, but this year I look an old 48. I bought strivectin, it worked for a little bit, but my face feels dry.

  42. I can’t stress enough just how good this product is and how good it makes you feel and most of all look, it looks so natural !! I am almost 71 and to say this product is PERFECT is confirming the truth.

  43. I have not use the product, however,I would very much like to try it. Thus, if you would like to send a small sample of No Foundation foundation, I will gladly tries it.


  44. The no foundation foundation makes my skin look young and flawless. Apply it to well moisturized skin. You don’t need much. The result is glowing and youthfull. A great, everyday foundation with added healthy ingredients.

  45. I am really interest in your products

  46. I have heard about Dr. Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation for quite some time. Just a little hesitant, as it is a little out of my budget, but would love to give it a try and advise others as to my findings.

    Thank you,

  47. I have yet to try the no foundation foundation, but I am ecstatic to try it! I have been using the travel set, cleanser, firming lotion and moisturizer for 2 weeks now and my skin feels wonderful and smooth. I have a lot break outs and after 2 weeks they are really settling down in terms of outbreaks. Can’t wait to see the long term results!

  48. I LOVE this foundation. I am a fair-skinned brunette. I dab on NFF, spray a little Lumene (water mist) over my face, then blend. It gives me a very young looking, sheer color, evens out my skin tone and makes me look finished without appearing made up. LoveLoveLove It!

  49. I will be 58 years old this summer and have never used a foundation. I have nice skin, but feeling like I might be ready to try something. I like that yours is a no foundation – foundation, and that is has spf protection. Maybe this is what I have been waiting for!

  50. Perricone MD’s No Foundation Foundation is a beautiful luminous sheer foundation, that uses light diffusing mica mixed with translucent pigment to even the skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles and diminish the appearance of pores.It leaves my skin looking smooth, glowy and taut.

    What I love best about this skin perfecting product is that it also leaves your skin feeling naked- the product is similar in feel to a light weight moisturizer, and even better- it’s more than just make-up.

    No Foundation Foundation is an innovative multi-tasker that provides a non-chemical broad spectrum SPF 30 as well as the patented Perricone anti-aging cocktail: Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE.

    Going into the summer months, this product has everything I need- a lightweight feel, natural finish, full sun protection and amazing anti-aging treatment benefits.
