        A:

        There is no difference between the No Foundation Foundation products, however, earlier this year Dr. Perricone released the No Foundation Foundation Fair (No. 1) and the original version is now called No Foundation Foundation (No. 2).

        We also have a new product called No Foundation Foundation Serum which is very light weight and translucent; it comes in one universal shade or personalize it by adding the No Bronzer Bronzer.

        I hope this is helpful.

    I am a light foundation wearer so I love this product. I didn't always like how foundation made my skin feel. As I said, I still think of this as a foundation, it's just much lighter and you get all the other good Perricone stuff. Also, it does well in the heat and humidity of summer.

    I have been using a series of Perricone products for a couple of months so am fairly new to the serious skin care group. I've been using the SPF 15 tinted moisturizer since last fall and was happy to see this new product since I needed a higher SPF for summer. I've had this for a couple of weeks and would love it if only I were 20 years younger and 3 skin shades darker! I guess Dr. Perricone has never done any home renovations, but as most know who are refurbishing an older home, you never use a high or even low sheen paint on imperfect walls. The sheen makes every nick and bump very obvious. The same can be said for foundation I've decided. This product is SOOO shiny when you've put it on, it draws attention to every flaw in the skin. Like a glowing billboard! Plus, you just look greasy, not "dewey" as the sales person stated. The tint is also way too dark for my skin tone, I am of Scottish/Irish/English descent and when I put on this foundation, I look like I've used the fake tan stuff. I'm disappointed that Perricone is discontinuing the other tinted sunscreen so am going to go buy 2 or 3 tubes of the "Light" to have on hand.

            Comments about No Foundation Foundation No. 2:

            I really like this foundation. My only beef is that a 1oz or even 2oz bottle does not last very long. I'd rather have a foundation that lasts at least 6 months or even a year so that I don't have to constantly be buying these products. I'm aware that they don't even make the 2oz bottle anymore. The 1oz will last maybe a couple months.

            These products are so expensive that I guess that's why they couldn't possibly last very long. Too bad.

            I would not recommend this to a friend because of the price and the fact that you have to buy it so frequently. So back to the drawing board, unfortunately.
