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 >>

  2. I am 40 years old and run daily on my lunch hour. If I could find a makeup that would protect my skin and last through the sweating that would be great. I would love to be a tester.


  3. I am intrigued by all the great feedback on the Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation. I am currently a Bare MInerals user, and am not unhappy with, but always looking for a product that would be more nourishing for the long term health of my skin. I live in Arizona where the lizards show us what our skin could look if we don’t nourish and protect.
    I’d love to be your desert tester.

  4. Hiya,
    I’ve had very little luck with liquid based foundations as they seem always to result in a breakout… I’m 30, you’d think I’d be too old for that stuff.
    Mineral makeup is ok but I find it doesn’t really even out my skin tone and looks pretty awful over my freckles. I’ve heard great things about No Foundation Foundation and would really love to try it!

  6. I love the face firming wash and amine coplex moistureizer. The no makeup makeup is the best to get!!!!!

    Can’t live without the Perriconte GLOW!!!!!!!!

  7. I am 53 years old and would love to test your foundation. I have bought so many over the years and have yet to find one where I could say ‘that’s the one’. I am Irish and have fairly good skin and would like to do all I can to dealy the ageing process.



  8. I like to try, this way represanting the italian and brazilian population. We have different skin and different problematic conditions considering we are exposed to sun a lot and in Brazil we tan even indoors such is the sun’s refraction. I live here in the US but the damage is already done.

  9. Unfortunately, when I was younger (I’m 44 now) I worshipped the sun. Today I am paying for my past mistakes with fine lines & wrinkles on my forehead plus
    broken capillaries on my cheeks. I would
    love a foundation that would diminish
    my flaws and provide a natural, dewy, glowing look!!

  10. Wish I had a sample of this Miracle Make-up. I have a make-up cabinet full of others who claim to do wonders, only to take my money and give me nothing but cakey,make-up that falls in all my wrinkles, that are also supposed to not be there. I would love for you to prove me wrong on this one.

  11. I would love to become a tester!

  14. I was sent a sample of the no foundation foundation with my last purchase. And I can’t tell you how much i love it! i have had acne prone skin for about 5 years now. With the help of dr perricones Skin clear line, supplements and diet tips, I now have clear skin. but i do still have issues occasionally with breakouts. But with the new foundation, no one can ever tell I have had one. It evens my skin tone and makes my skin look very radiant and supple. I get compliments on my skin ALL THE TIME! THX DR Perricone! I would love to be a tester!

  16. Wow–Finally found my fountain of Youth..Tried all other creams..spent thousands of dollars,,,but one try with Perricone products and I can notice a difference already. Thanx n kudos for such amazing products!

  17. I love it! So often foundation just wears off. This foundatin makes my skin look even, youthful and glowing all day. It’s a ture gem!

  18. This sounds wonderful. No more unhealthy make-up layer to feel all day long. I’d love to reduce wrinkles, lines and pores, even my skintone and provide UV protection and have my skin look smooth and dewy!

  19. I’m 49 and haven’t used a foundation in years because I find they tend to make the skin look older. I like the thought of something that appears subtle and natural looking as if you were wearing nothing. I would love to be a tester for the No Foundation Foundation.

  20. Usually, I avoid foundation like… well, the flu. BUT, I’ve heard nothing but glowing remarks (literally) from my friends who swear by this product and the whole Perricone MD line. I’m one of those people who considers good skin care products to be an investment, so I’d love to give this “No Foundation Foundation” a shot!

  21. Yes! I finally found a foundation that both me and my husband love! Prior to this he would say I looked like I was wearing to much makeup yet I knew I wasn’t applying that much product. When I put on the no foundation foundation and we went out to dinner for my sisters birthday he commented “you have just the right amount of makeup on” and I smirked inside knowing I was wearing the same exact amount as I normally do, however this time I was using a better quality product.

  22. I’m pregnant! This is my first and I’m really nervous about looking my best for my husband. We’re still newlyweds (seven months and counting) and I want to keep the magic going. I’m not happy with any of my foundations right now – nothing seems quite right on my skin now that the pregnancy is changing my hormones. Please give me a sample, I would really love to try it!!

  23. I am going to be 53 in January, and even though I do not have any wrinkles or crow’s feet ( good genes) my skin tone is very uneven due to acne scaring as a teenager, and I have a few age spots and the usual lines around the month. The problem is to cover this all up a need a full coverage foundation, but I tend to be oily in the T Zone so if I use heavy foundation it runs of by the end of the day. If I use mineral or powder foundation it doesn’t cover up the imperfections so I am kind of stuck with no wear to turn, and I am also starting to get dark circle under my eyes due to my olive skin tone, so after reading all the reviews from women with different skin tones and issues I believe this would be a great product for me to try!

  24. I am 51 years young but my face is starting to show my age. I have been using mineral makeup and like that it isn’t a heavy foundation but it settles in my fine lines. I also have hyperpigmentation. This looks like THE ANSWER! It would be great to test this. I have enquired at stores in my area but they don’t carry it. Thanks

  25. Hi,

    I am indian..and would love to be a tester!

  26. Oh my word,

    I have found my fountain of youth

    with Dr. Perricone’s products. I must

    try them all. Your # 1 tester is

    here; ready, willing and able!


  27. i received a sample of the no foundation foundation and absolutely love it. my usual tinted sunscreen leaves my skin dry in the winter but this just makes my skin dewy but not oily. even my husband commented on how great my skin looked!

  28. This product sounds like exactly what I’m looking for, i would love to be a tester

  29. I am so excited that Perricone has come out with this and hope that it truly would give an even tone, fresh appearance to my skin without settling into wrinkles. The skin care products that I have used have been great and am glad that you are now expanding out into the coverage field. It would be so exciting to be able to test your no foundation foundation and I hope that I will be given that opportunity. Thanks

  30. Hi! I just tried the sample of no foundation foundation this weekend and it is awesome! I will definitely be purchasing a bottle soon!

  31. This sounds so wonderful! I would really love to try this.

  32. Having just turned 40, it’s crucial for me to be using the correct skin products. I have heard fabulous things about Dr. Perricone’s skincare line and would love to become a tester. I need to focus on preventative skin care focused on anti-aging so I can continue looking fabulous well in to my next 40 years!

  33. I have been a fan of Nicholas Perricone for years. Saw him at an event at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. Recently purchased some of his items from I need this item to add to my collection. Love the non-chemical sunscreen factor. Need to use it daily.

  34. I’m 35,have freckles and fair skin. I’ve always had clear skin until I hit my 30′s and it seems hormones have played a role in the change in my skin. It’s really hard to find a natural looking foundation. I’m on a tight budget since being laid off and a freebie would be really appreciated. I don’t scrimp on my face, if I liked this better than Clinique, then I would make the switch.

  35. I have dark african american skin, I would love to see how this matches and works with my skin (which is also sensitive).

  36. i love this stuff. it works so well and feels great. highly recommended

  37. I am so overwhelmed with all of the products out there ~ I am looking for all in one anti-aging products with benefits for my skin, in addition to healthy looking skin. All of this with ‘coverage’ and the look of no makeup… is it possible?:) I would love to try it!

  38. I would love to try this product! I am looking for a foundation that looks natural on my fair skin and one that doesn’t feel heavy.

  39. Thanks so much for the opportunity to be considered as a product tester. As a Florida native, I have some sun damage due to too many years on the beach. In addition, I was diagnosed with rosacea two years ago. I have heard wonderful things about Perricone products and would like to see what they could do for me.

  40. I would love to try this product and provide feedback. I have combination skin that’s acne prone and it gets very dry in the winter (also because I live in the desert). It would be wonderful to be one of those girls that has perfect skin. Here’s to hoping I get picked!

  41. I just started using this product this week and I am overjoyed with how my skin looks with this no foundation. I’ve tried so many foundations and nothing looks that natural. When I put on my No Foundation Foundation I knew I had found what I have been looking for. I like the SPF 30 already in it. I tossed all my other foundations!

  42. Love it! it evens out my skin tone, and provides enough coverage to hide “age” spots and the white spots that I have from my Derm. trying to freeze them off!

  43. I just recently turned 50 and look great, but have never really found any foundation that looked good on me, they always seemed to make my skin look and feel dry so I usually don’t wear anything. That’s why I would love to be a tester, I know that Perricone products are awesome and would love to see what it could do for me.

  44. I live on Corfu in Greece – sea breezes and sun, sun, sun – and without your products I would probably look like rhinoceros instead of at least 10 years younger than my age! And now with your No Foundation Foundation my skin stays moist and dewy all day.Thank you, thank you.

  45. This is one product I would love to try. I normally do not wear makeup because I don’t like the thickness of regular foundations and the way they feel on my face. Regular foundations also enhance the appearance of my pours. I would love to try something more natural feeling. Thank you!

  46. I would love to try any Perricone products. Thank you for considering me.

  47. I received a sample of the No Foundation Foundation with an order and it’s fabulous. I love the way the “universal color” blends with my skin and makes it look natural, only better.

  48. Ola’ I am Brazilian, then alive in a climate with much high sun and temperatures.

    It stows in Vegas Wools and it bought the product In the Foundation Foundation spf 30, I am

    Magic and my friends also. The result is visibly immediate and the skin is wonderful. It would like that these products were venda in Brazil to be able to make use and thus mine 52 years each time less would reveal, debtor for the good products that in help them to live better.

  50. I am quickly approaching my 50s and although my skin looks great, I have yet to find a foundation that would enhance it. Most leave it looking dry and accentuate my fine wrinkles. This foundation seems to be the answer to my quest. I would LOVE to be a tester!
