      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 Makeup Foundation:

    I use this foundation daily over my Cold Plasma cream. It is a very effective foundation and sunscreen. I have found that consistent use of sunscreen is the best preventative of wrinkles and sagging skin. I'm in my late fifties and grew up in the Tropics. Although I am fair skinned, have managed to fare well in spite of all of the sun exposure due to religious use of sunscreen/sunblock. Usually used sunblock, then foundation. Love that this product saves me time, and skips an extra layer! It is buildable, so you can adjust the amount of coverage you want. It's a very effective sunscreen, too. I feel that it also improves the texture of my skin. It does feel a little bit tacky when you put it on, but you get used to it. It also requires a bit of extra care to remove. Just a little extra gentle rubbing. Which is not a bad thing, as stimulating the face also helps circulation and keeps it youthful.

      Have used this product for several years. I don't care for anything heavy on my skin and this looks so natural. However, I still cannot find a product to completely remove it when cleansing. This includes a couple of Perricone products. Leaves my towels with a visible residue-makes me wonder how clean my face is.

        Comments about No Makeup Foundation:

        I was skeptical on this foundation being so sheer but once I switched back to wearing my heavier Peter Thomas Roth CC cream I started to appreciate for what it is. Even though I have very dry skin I was looking for new tinted moisturizer/BB/CC cream alternative that didnt leave my face oily by the end of the day. I like it is very light feeling and I don't feel uncomfortable if I sleep with it on since it is not bad for your skin. Coverage is sheer and great for a daily natural look (where my freckles still show) for days where you don't wear full face make up but want a little something to look put together. What I love is that it provides just enough coverage to even out my skin tone (my cheeks are lighter and reddish compared to my forehead) and tones down the natural redness in my cheeks. It does not make my face oily by the end of the day and I love that it has decent level of SPF 30 so I don't have to purchase a separate face sunscreen which can be expensive. 2 in 1 makes it worth the cost and I was able to purchase 40% off during the year end sale. I apply it with my fingers for a quick face routine in the AM. I like the pump applicator though I will need to use my mini spatula to get the last drops. My only grief and reason I took off a star was the limited color choices because with SE asian tan skin standard tint of light -medium was too light on me but it is forgiving because of sheerness so I got away with it. Now they offer a darker shade in Tan which is a match for my "winter' skin tone." I will need to switch back my other CC once I get a summer tan unless Dr. Perricone expands their shades. I haven't tried darkening it with the No Make Up bronzer I also have but don't plan to because the bronzer has shimmer I don't want to add in my foundation.

It blended in ok except where it caked in my pores and creases. I guess it's meant for younger skin but that wasn't specified anywhere.

          It is a great light weight product but definitely caters towards white skin. I am South Asian and have a wheatish complexion. Their darkest shade works for me in the winter months of Wisconsin. Otherwise, it's moisturizing on my dry skin and doesn't leave blotches like other foundations.

              i bought two bottles of the no make up make up. It's almost two years before the expiration date on the bottle and the make up is all curtled and oily. I phoned customer service and provided pictures of both bottles and the curtled yucky contents and let them know it caused me acne! Big under skin, white head deep in there, oil collection pimples that I'm still dealing with a week later. They said Sorry, nothing we can do this is after our return policy. I bought these bottles in May/June. If it's expected to last for two more years I would like the opportunity to at least use it for a handful of months! Not what I expect after spending 60 dollars on each bottle. Already found another brand that is not greasy and keeps its quality. I have to wonder if they are sticking expiration stickers on old bottles. Otherwise I can't explain the defect and their lack of concern. Not at all white glove service. They could at least tell me how to combat this acne. I'm not a scientist! Wish I could post pictures. Buyer be ware.

                  Comments about No Makeup Foundation:

                  My skin is not my crowning glory. Brown pigmentation, red vascular blotches, many visible veins, scars, scaly stuff etc. At least the elasticity is holding up! I gave up expecting to cover it all because to do so would require a half dozen products and two hours of time and end up looking up artificial. My skin philosophy is simply to look 50% better than without makeup -- and face it -- anything that covers everything bad covers everything good too. The No Foundation Foundation achieves that goal for me. It reduces the pigmentation contrasts with normal areas. It provides a vaguely sheer, light and slightly matte look (can tell there is my own skin underneath), I do need a little concealer on a large red inflamed area where nothing adheres well, though. Smoothes out fine lines well. I suggest keeping exfoliated for best results and in general. After application my skin feels moist to the touch and comfortable. For me, this product has been a good purchase.
