Gwyneth Paltrow for Perricone- No Foundation Foundation Review

Gwyneth Paltrow as the newest fan of Perricone MD’s No Foundation Foundation and Super Berry Powder with Acai as seen today in her newsletter - GOOP. Paltrow joins Eva Mendes, Kate Hudson and Anna Kournikova as fans of the brand and Dr. Perricone’s philosophy.
Make sure you check out the entire interview between GOOP and Dr. Perricone discussing the importance of a healthy diet, including recommended superfoods and recipes, seen here:
Everyone already knows I'm a HUGE fan of Perricone, they might be my favorite go to brand. I finally got the check out Gwyneth Paltrow's favorite, the No Foundation Foundation.  It's an oil free foundation that is supposed to make you look nice and natural without that horrible "foundation" look.
It only comes in one color, and it's extremely creamy and light. It blends into your natural skin color to create a nice glow and cover up imperfections. It will then dry to a matte finish, leaving you looking just as nice as if if you were wearing a regular foundation.

  • Instantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines and pores.

  • Provides non-chemical SPF 30 broad spectrum UV protection.

  • Corrects skin undertones.

  • Quick-absorbing.

  • Moisturizes. Skin appears smooth and naturally dewy.

    So here are my before and after pics, I have NO other makeup on. The first is one side of my face, and then the other side with the no foundation on. You can see it got rid of all my little freckles.  At first, if not applied correctly it can show up as greasy, so you have to make sure you rub it in well, and probably use some type of powder afterwards. I really don't feel this is a "foundation" as much as it is a tinted moisturizer. I love the effects it did for my skin, getting rid of the dryness, however after a couple hours, my imperfections started to show through. I think Perricone No Foundation Foundation is suited for people with really great skin that don't have many flaws. (Like Gwyneth Paltrow of course!) Other then that, people with lots of freckles and a big pimple on the side of their face, (ME!) need something a bit stronger.
    I will continue to use this as a moisturizer before my foundation, or maybe before I go somewhere like the gym, but for going out at night, I think I need a bit more coverage.
    Perricone's No Foundation Foundation is available at Perricone's website for $50.
