Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum
Dr. Perricone has added to his No Foundation line. I've got two new products to preview . First up is No Foundation Foundation Serum. Look for No Lipstick Lipstick later today( now here )
Now not being one who isn't fond of no makeup, certainly not no foundation , I hadn't explored this product line before. I know they make wonderful skincare of course .
That changed when I read about new No Foundation Foundation Serum. It sounded really good and I thought might make a great base layer. This is one of those times I'm glad I tried something, because it is that good.
What you have here is a lightweight , thin , tinted skin treatment, sun protection and coverage all in one. That reminds of a BB Cream , and there are similarities but differences as well. No Foundation Serum gives quite good coverage. It's light but still manages to make my skin look better. It is a very thin liquid, but once on your face it dries to a semi matte finish . Despite the warm temps and my oilier skin it also seems to last long on me. So it's long-wearing as well because if it lasts on me then everyone else is set .
This can be used as a stand alone for a nice brightened , smoothed , finished but not overdone look. I , however, have been dusting powder foundation over it for more coverage, and should you go that route as well, you basically look airbrushed. It's one winning combo.
No Foundation Serum has physical SPF 30 with Zinc Oxide. Skin benefiting ingredients include alpha lipoic acid, vitamin C ester and neuropeptides. All age groups can use this. The Mom loved it almost as much as I did .
There is one shade- light to medium and it is a bit dark for pale skins. It's a little deeper than I use but with blending and / or the powder it works fine.
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum is $ 55 at Sephora
