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. [...] for SPF 30 protection, consider Perricone No Foundation Foundation with Zinc Oxide, provides non-chemical sun [...]

  2. I would absolutely love a foundation that wasnt cakey or to dark to blend with my light skin tone. I have tried alot and yet to find one i am happy with . I have alot of fine lines around my eyes and all the foundations i have tried seem to enhance not hide my fine lines. I would love to try this foundation and see if it is really as good as it sounds to be… sorry to be honest but actually sounds too good to be true..

  3. I am looking for a foundation that gives me the appearance of flawless skin.

  4. hmm This seems promising! Many foundations fail to look natural while correcting the faults. They either look like a plastic mask or look natural but do nothing to flatter our skin. I wonder if this PerriconeMD is indeed good enough to live up to its name. Would be great to see for myself =)

  5. HI! Can you please send me a sample of this No Foundation? I have fair skin (Asian) and I read a few reviews, and not sure if this would be a match for me. I read it gives an orange tint.
    Other than that, the ingredients are great..I would love to be able to use this on a daily basis. Thanks..

  6. i have not tried this but would love to. i love that it has SPF in it and a universal shade.

  7. Would this no foundation foundation work on rozacea, too? It seems to be just what I need, as every other “great” foundation out there made my face look like a Kabuki Mask, indeed. I am definitely willing to try this one. Thank you for the opportunity.

  8. I’ve large pores on my nose. it means I can’t really use powder foundation as this tends to emphasise them. I’d love to see how this product might handle / cover or possibly aid this.

  9. would Love to try this! I need all the help I can get!

  10. I would love to try a foundation

  14. Dr. Perricone MD products are great as they are not full of toxins like so many other cosmetics. I use a tinted moisturizer and was excited to hear about this new product with a hint more coverage. Just what I’m looking for.
    Thank you for the opportunity to try it for FREE! I have read great reviews about No Foundation Foundation.

  15. I always hate gucky make up, as soon as you touch it, it has to be fixed. I have actually dreamed/fantisied about such a product as this. Glad someone finally created it. Thank you Dr. Perricone for that and your wonderful, informative books.

  16. I’d love to try this out and review it on my blog.

  17. I sometimes break out in pimples from certain suncscreens or tints, especially if they are greasy. The fact that there are non-chemical ingredients in this product makes it worth a try.

  24. I’ve tried the No Foundation Foundation and found it to be great. It was a very close match to my skin tone and helped cover some sun spots on my face. I would recommend the product to anyone!

  25. I never wore foundation until a few years ago when I started on-camera work and now have to wear it everyday. I don’t go anywhere without makeup or foundation. Not even the grocery store, but even the thinnest HD makeup I use, looks like a makeup mask. I hate that. I’d love to try this and get a soft natural look.

  26. This sounds great- I always feel like I can’t leave the house without makup (foundation), but this seems like it could be the perfect compromise…

  27. I would love to become a product test for Perricone MD!I have heard only good things about this product!

  28. I would LOVE to try new products. I love to try samples of products before buying them. I don’t usually wear foundation because I haven’t found one that covers well and feels light and natural not cakey.

  29. I am so excited to try this product! I am one of those who avoids foundation because most feel heavy, make my skin oily and very broken out the next day. I have tried all brands to the very expensive department stores with no luck. I pretty much have given up until I came across this! So excited. :-).

  30. I would loooove to try this, it sounds like exactly what I need!

  31. I have heard wonderful things about this product. I would love to try it.
    It would be great to finally have a product that feels and looks great on me.

  32. I would love to try this foundation because of many comment from customers i feel like it must be worthy to be try.
    using clarins foundation i would love to change it for this miracle one.

  33. This product sounds amazing! I have never found a foundation that I love. Maybe this will be it! Thanks so much.

  34. I would love to try this for those days that I don’t wear makeup. I am really into skincare and love trying new products.

  35. I’m 41 and hating the fine lines around my eyes, and I can’t find a foundation that I’m happy with. I’ve tried minerals, mousses, and liquids, and not been happy with any of the results. This sounds perfect!

  36. I absolutely detest anything on my face that feels cakey or, after a few hours, is then filling my wrinkles and NOT in a good way, lol.

    This formula sounds JUST right for my needs. PLUS… I love that it has non-chemical SPF protection. Living in CO, the sun is always a factor (even on snow days.)

    I would be HONORED to try any Dr. Perricone MD product!!

  37. Works great! Excellent results. I am very happy it contains spf 30

  38. I have had acne for a lomg time and these products help

  39. I would love to try this one! I have such a hard time finding something moisturizing which matches my skin tone – this sounds perfect!

  41. I love your tinted moisturizer; it is my favorite product out there! I am curious to find out how the “No Foundation Foundation” compares to your tinted moisturizer… thanks!

  45. Gosh, this sounds perfect for me! I’d love to try it one day.

  46. I just recently purchased Dr. Perricones Facelift Kit and have had amazing results. I had to find out more about him and his products and came across this website. I would love to try this product and cant wait to try more of them. His products have made a real differnce in how I feel about myself and I think this is a great opportunity to let others know that THEY REALLY WORK.:)

  47. I am very fair skinned and finding a foundation that offers SPF protection without making my face smell like a day at the beach is difficult for me. I hate wearing a lot of makeup on my face, but I have bad scarring from acne and need something to give my skin an extra boost! This foundation sounds like it can do all of that, while helping to reverse past damage from sun exposure, and moisturize my dry winter skin!!

  48. I would love to try out Perricone products I know my husband have tried the eye cream before, but he did not wanted to share with me:)

  49. I gave up on makeup several years ago because I didn’t like the way it felt and looked after a few hours. This sounds like an answer to both problems.

  50. I would love to try a foundation that helps cover up wrinkles and doesn’t look thick!
