I have always been a HUGE N.V. Perricone fan. As you can probably tell from all my Perricone reviews. If I had more money, I think I would always be stocked up on their products, because they really are absolutely AMAZING. They are probably the only brand I like – across the board. I’ve never tried a product I don’t like. And this definitely was no exception. This No Foundation Foundation is revolutionary, let me tell you. I shy away from foundation – it’s hard to find one that works with my skin. But of course – darn you Perricone! This product works, and is absolutely heavenly!

Introducing the first advanced anti-aging translucent foundation!

As a dermatologist to some of the most famous faces in the world, their special needs often become inspiration for the creation of new products. When more than one celebrity make-up artist asked Dr. Perricone for a type of foundation that would let the skin’s natural radiance and beauty shine through, No Foundation Foundation was born.

Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this unique formula delivers many benefits of a traditional foundation without the heavy matte finish, which emphasizes the tiniest skin imperfections. No Foundation Foundation is a multi-purpose product that provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smoothes fine lines and boosts skin’s natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits.

KEY SCIENCES:
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Patented
– The ultimate antioxidant protects the cell
– Diminishes fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration
– Refines skin texture
– Reduces pore size, puffiness, imperfections and uneven skin tone

DMAE
– Provides ultimate contouring benefits to skin beginning to lose elasticity
– Delivers lifted, tightened and toned appearance to the skin
– Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide
– Provides non-chemical sunscreen protection

“I took special care in formulating No Foundation Foundation with a non-chemical SPF 30 to deliver protection against sun damage, making it ideal for all skin types, even the most sensitive” – Dr. Perricone

Marie Claire - July 2009
“I was thrilled to find Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. It erases blotchiness and pores with just a hint more coverage…”

Lucky – June 2009
“This is a full-fledged anti-aging treatment masquerading as a tinted moisturizer…”
