Product Description

What It Is:

No Makeup Foundation Serum instantly softens imperfections and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and pores with Neuropeptides without settling into fine lines. A luxurious fluid texture leaves a semi-matte suede finish with a breathable second skin effect. This lightweight and elegant formula contains a non-irritating, natural sun screen that protects skin from the age-accelerating rays of the sun. It comes in one universal shade or you can customize to match your skin tone with No Bronzer Bronzer.

What It Does:

Universal shade delivers a radiant, semi-matte finish that allows for buildable coverage to camouflage visible imperfections.

Improves the appearance of firmness and minimizes visible wrinkles and pores.

Non-chemical, mineral based broad spectrum SPF 30.

This was my first Perricone MD purchase and I am so thrilled I tried it! This product is great if you're looking to even out your skin, minimize imperfections, and achieve a natural polished look. I was worried about the universal shade being too dark on my fair/light cool/neutral skintone after watching some YouTube reviews and seeing the product once it arrived. However, after trying to apply it several different ways, I've found that applying per the directions gives the best finish. As for the color, you have to give it time to adjust to your skin in my opinion and make sure you blend well (and skin is properly moisturized before applying). I was afraid it was still a tiny bit dark and tried another foundation....hated the look and went right back to this. I also recently discovered the lightening foundation drops from the body shop. Adding a drop or two helped lighten the color without changing the perfect finish of this product. I think it works on my skin tone with or without adding these though now that I have figured out the product. You just have to play with it and try different things as another reviewer accurately stated. It would be nice to have just a few other shade options but I'm very happy with the look this gives and will continue to purchase. Very nice natural look for maturing skin that can tend to look older with fuller coverage foundations. It truly delivers on giving your skin a no foundation look.

I probably should not have gotten my hopes up about this “foundation”, so that’s on me. But still, I was so ready to fall in love with this serum-turned-makeup that I shelled out good money that could have (and really should have) gone to any number of my beauty favorites. But I was just plain foolish and got ahead of myself, without taking the time to read reviews or otherwise ‘vet’ this stuff. Needless to say, my first application did not go as well as I had hoped, which is to say that it did not go well at all. Instead of the luxurious velvety coverage that I was envisioning, it merely smeared and streaked on every skin-surface I tested it on. In fact, the only way I can describe the outcome is this: image if you mixed your normal foundation with some olive oil and then applied it to your face with a plastic broom. That’s what this “serum” looked like no matter how hard I tried to blend it or blur it. Major disappointment, though I do still love a great deal of products from Perricone!

I'm not a big makeup person. I wear just enough to look professional at work. This product is perfect. I put a couple drops on my fingers and rub it in. The shade is darker than my skin tone when I initially dab it on but is a perfect match once rubbed in. It acts like an instant blur. My skin looks healthier and clearer. It even reduces the appearance of my forehead line. I love how it has built in sunscreen. That's one less stop to my routine. I used to use Dior Hydra Life BB Cream but now I prefer Perricone. Simple, easy, and good results. What's not to love?

This is my all time favorite!! I have been using this for years and always repurchase it when it runs out. It’s very light coverage but it perfects your face and gives you a very natural look. It’s exactly like it says - no foundation foundation. This is perfect for everyday wear but not enough coverage for nights out. I use this for my everyday foundation and love that I can wear it during the summer. It makes my skin look so much better without looking like I’m wearing makeup. Every time I wear this I get compliments on my skin.

This stuff is AMAZING! As you get older, pores are bigger and small lines are hard to disguise with makeup, high coverage foundation is usually very heavy so it just makes my pores look bigger and makes all the lines stand out. I tried different brands, all natural, high end, drugstore... I finally read about this brand on Petit Vour and decided to give it a try, it's kind of pricey so I was nervous when I ordered. It arrived today and I ran upstairs to try it out, I didn't use any primers, just my regular skin care routine. I applied it following the instructions (no brush or sponge) and I can't believe the results! my nose is usually very problematic, it looks so smooth! I have acne marks on my neck and they are still a little visible but they are not red and that for me is good enough. The best part, it looks like I'm NOT wearing foundation!!! I just ordered the blush and the concealer, I think I finally found the perfect brand for me :)

I like this product because it kills two birds with one stone. I use it as an everyday foundation because it’s light and it’s an oil so it’s also hydrating in the skin. It is on the pricier side but I think it was worth it if you like the barely there makeup look. One thing that Is unfortunate is how there are only 2 or 3 shades. Luckily I found one to match my skin. But I definitely think they should make more shades.

I want to love this more, but with the high price tag, I just expect so much more out of this product. I was looking for a very light foundation, but this is so sheer it's almost not worth putting on--especially for the $60 price tag! I will say that it does not break me out and sits well on my oily skin, but I would recommend getting a cheaper foundation and just mixing a moisturizer in if you want a lighter finish.

I bought the entire line of no make up make up, which was pretty expensive but I wanted a lightweight makeup look that was also heathy for my skin.

I want to love it so much but every time I wear any of the product my skin breaks out with dermatitis. I’m not sure if it’s the anti aging ingredient that my skin does not like.

This is the best! If you want a light to medium coverage that feels like you are wearing nothing, it is perfect. I bought mine from Sephora. It was a great price point because I literally never run out. It takes forever to use it all. This is a fantastic serum and I will definitely use again.

I tried this in Ulta and was 50/50 because of flaking in the color, but realized when I opened my own at home that it was just because theirs was old. Phew. SUPER light wear, but buildable if need be, and strangely blends well despite a pretty generic color that doesn't seem one size fits all in the bottle, but is upon application. I don't wear makeup, so I was looking for something along the lines of a tinted moisturizer sans moisturizer and this fits the bill. A little pricey, but very little is needed for me. Overall, it's kind of a luxury instead of a necessity, but an easy way to even tone with added benefits.

What is the best way to apply this? I know it says to use your fingers but I'm not a huge fan of that.
