    • Q:

      Is this product non comedogenic? If so, why isn't it listed?
      Asked on 8/3/2013 by Kerri from United States

      1 answer

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Most people do not have any problem using Dr. Perricone’s products, but there unfortunately is no list of ingredients that can be guaranteed to not disagree with someone’s skin, so consumers who are prone to breakouts or who have sensitive’s should pay careful attention to what they use on their skin. It is virtually impossible to know if, when, or how anyone's skin will react to any cosmetic, whether it is non-comedogenic or not. That is why we always recommend performing a patch test to see if your skin is compatible with the product line.

    Finally your chemists have come up with a lovely color for us natural blondes!!! This new formula "fair" is perfect, does not have the yellow tone to it and it still covers the unwanted imperfections. I am a 74 year young lady and have been looking for a foundation that is light and also has sun protection. I do not get out in the sun without a hat or sun glasses and do not want to tan....so the original "no foundation" was too dark for me. Thank you for your new discovery. I will probably use up my original no foundation by blending it with the new fair color so not to waste a drop :)

    I have used this product in the past and have been happy with the result. However on this occasion upon opening the consistency was congealed, lumpy and unusable. I am an International customer and as the product was not returned within 30days, Dr Perricone customer care has refused to honor the satisfaction guarantee. International buyer be weary. I will not be purchasing from this company again.

    Good, but not perfect.

    By Ash in TN

    from Knoxville, TN

    Pros

    • Breathable
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Slightly sticky
    • Very light coverage

    Best Uses

      Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation No. 1:

      I bought this because I used pretty heavy makeup over the winter and wanted something much lighter for summer. I think this might be meant for slightly older skin (I'm 31), so while I did notice that the wrinkle across my forehead was less noticeable it didn't do much at all to cover or even diffuse the very light scarring on my jawline. Worn alone it's fine but when I've tried to use my own contouring powder it was very difficult because it makes your skin a little sticky. I will keep using it because I do feel it's a better alternative to heavy foundation, but it's just something you and your skin will have to adjust to.

      Good tinted moisturizer, not a foundation by any means.

      By Amy

      from Boston

      Pros

      • Applies Evenly
      • Feels good on skin
      • Silky

      Cons

      • Not full coverage
      • Slightly greasy

        Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation No. 1:

        While this is a nice tinted moisturizer, it really can't be used as a foundation. The coverage on it is a lot lighter than I thought it would be. However, it does feel nice going on the skin and works well under a powder foundation. It is a little greasy feeling (does not mattefy) so it makes your skin look shiny of not set with a powder.

        BEST MAKEUP ON THE MARKET

        By SusieQusie

        from Eagle Point, OR

        Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation No. 1:

        I've been using this makeup for over two years now and I love the natural coverage I get along with the stay power. I'm 64 years old and I've found the coverage smooths out the lines and isn't like the usual makeup I've used in the past where it will eventually either soaks into the skin or flows into the lines making them more noticeable. I've found that the No. 1 shade works very well for my rather pale skin but in the summer I need a little darker coverage so I will mix the No. 1 shade along with the No. 2 shade to get the best color. Thanks Dr. Perricone for making this wonderful product!!

          Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation No. 1:

          I love the No Foundation Foundation No. 1 although if I get a little color from the sun, it's too light for me. I've solved that problem by mixing in a bit of the No. 2 shade. Like all the Perricone products, this one, too, looks completely natural on my skin. Other foundations seem to sit on the surface and even rub off--not this one! I wish the No Foundation Foundation Serum was available in two shades because I expect that would increase the coverage (but I am satisfied with the product as is).
