      My skin is acne prone. This foundation is oil free, but doesn't feel like it. It does not cause my skin to break out. Other foundations I've tried have caused break outs. It goes on smoothly. I don't use a lot, but you could use more if you want more coverage.

            I like this product because it doesn't break me out like most foundations. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's not matte and tends to feel greasy after a few hours. I find myself having to reapply.

              Comments about Lorac Natural Performance Foundation:

              I looked for a while trying to find a foundation that does not have and SPF and also wen on smoothly. I found it. This foundation provides medium coverage and a medium / full coverage with a second application. I apply over the Lorac face primer and it glides on like a dream. I also have blonde hair and blue eyes, but my skin has more yellow undertones than pink so the 5 color is perfect for my face in the summer. I like foundation without SPF because when you wear SPF, it reflects light and your face looks lighter than the rest of your body in photos and under strong lights. I definitely recommend this product.

                  A:

                  Natural Performance Foundation comes in a smaller variety of shades. We would recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation to achieve the same benefits you are getting from both products mentioned. Sheer POREFection is a light weight, oil, fragrance, and paraben free foundation that provides light to medium coverage with a natural finish. For a deeper, warm foundation shade, we recommend trying Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS8 (Tan); however, for the best shade match to your complexion, we recommend visiting your local ULTA Beauty to have an artist help match your foundation shade in person.

                  A:

                  LORAC Natural Performance Foundation is a light weight foundation formula that should not separate around or into dry spots. For the best application, we recommend trying "I'm So Sensitive" Soothing Face Primer which is a moisturizing, water-based face primer that will help hydrate your skin prior to applying your foundation. All LORAC's Foundations can be applied using a foundation brush, sponge or fingertips.

                  A:

                  LORAC does not test our final products on animals and we are not aware of any animal testing performed by any manufacturer with whom LORAC does business. LORAC does not condone the testing of any cosmetic products on animals and asks all suppliers to support this point of view and all suppliers state that they do so. LORAC cannot warrant or certify that all suppliers who say they do not test on animals in fact do not test on animals. Additionally, notwithstanding the statements of suppliers to LORAC, LORAC has no way of knowing what the "suppliers of the suppliers" are doing. Also, LORAC is only distributed in the United States and does not sell in China or any countries that require animal testing. LORAC does not use a third party to test on animals and we are not owned by another company.
