    Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

    I don't know where to begin on how good this is. I have SUCH problems with foundations normally. Even the cult favorites for sensitive skin often give me issues. It was the hyaluronic acid that got me curious and sure enough I think that is a huge part of what makes this foundation great. Not only does this foundation not break me out, but two weeks in I think my skin actually looks and feels BETTER when bare. I use my clean fingers to apply and it blends very easily. I have noticed a little wear-off on my nose, but I wear foundations for 12-14 hours and this does not claim to be long lasting. I LOVE the glass packaging, but do not love the applicator for the sanitary reasons. The only request I could have would be to add a pump. I love this foundation and will keep purchasing as long as it continues to do well on my skin! I don't plan to even try anything else until then.

      Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

      I gave up on wearing foundation a long time ago because they always felt like a mask, so I opted for tinted moisturizers. Over time, I knew I wanted to take a step up and try to find something that had natural coverage. This was it! It's easy to apply with the applicator and blends very nicely into my complexion. I purchased in the shade MN3 and I love how it's just right between velvety and dewy. I'm really glad that I came across this and decided to give it a try.

        I was excited to try this and I have to say the packaging is absolutely beautiful. It is definitely not a full coverage foundation. I would call this a light medium but it makes the skin look so healthy and glowy. I have oily skin and I set it with a powder and it's beautiful!

        Beautiful skin!

        Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

        My skin type: 40 something, oily, acne-prone skin. This foundation provides the buildable coverage I need to cover acne scars and dark under-eyes. I was apprehensive with the applicator, but I've found it to be so much quicker and easier than a pump or pour out method. I swab the foundation onto my face, then use the Morphe M439 brush in a stippling motion on areas that need more coverage, and buff it into areas that need less coverage. This blends so easily and melts right into the skin. I only set with a setting powder on the T-Zone, under-eye, and cheeks (to apply bronzer, blush, and highlighter) This foundation seriously lasts me 12+ hours throughout a full 9 hour work day and Mom duties when I get home. No cracking, creasing, nor caking. I've been using this for a couple of weeks and notice my skin has also improved. It looks much brighter, acne scars are fading and best of all, no new breakouts! This has replaced my IT Cosmetics CC cream! I'm about a Mac NC 40 to NC 42 and bought the shades MW2 and DW2. I put the lighter shade towards the center of my face and the darker shade on the outer perimeter. Being that it's winter, I can get away with the MW2 as an all over base. Ideally, would love to see the shade range expand even more but I'm still excited that PF has finally put out shades that I'm able to use.

        Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

        This product was very over hyped in the beauty industry ! I love that it is a very easy application. My main issue was that I had to apply three coats to make it a full coverage foundation . This foundation is beautiful for some one that wants a simple everyday look it blends well. The packaging of this product is beautiful they are really stepping it up for other drugstore brands ! I would recommend this for oily and normal skin.

        Not for me

        By Atty Tude

        from Boise ID

        Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

        I never had luck with PF foundations and this one was no exception. When I applied it with my fingers it felt dry, like I was applying caulking. With a damp BB it went on patchy and uneven. Although it it more on the thick side it has a light coverage. Also, it made my skin look super textured and old (being in my 60s that is THE LAST thing I need). Powder and setting spray did little to nothing to improve it.

        I cant say I don't recommend it since other people seem to love it. But it certainly did not work for me.

          This foundation is incredible. I have mature, oily, sensitive skin and I have been using this for two weeks now and I have had no sensitivity to this product whatsoever. I have been using a mineral foundation for the past five years so I was very nervous about switching to a liquid makeup due to the fear of my hormonal skin having a reaction to it. I have had no reaction AT ALL and I absolutely love the coverage that this product gives as well as how this feels on the skin. I also love the huge doe foot applicator as well as the gorgeous packaging of this product. I give this a and I highly recommend. I can't wait to try the spotlight primer next!!!

            Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

            I am very disappointed that this doesn't have a good shade range. It feels great in my skin & looks so natural. But the shades suck. It definitely dries down darker. I have LC1 & LW2. LW2 is lighter. LC1 is very pink. But both is way too dark for my skin tone. I am NC15 & I don't get to use a lot of drugstore foundations because they're rarely light enough. I hope this changes in the near future.

            My new go-to

            Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

            I absolutely love this foundation. I have been reaching for it more than anything else lately. it's so beautiful on the skin and doesn't cling to my dry patches. It also wears so well throughout the day. I feel like this would work for most skin types because it's not too dry but it's also not overly dewy. I do hope they continue to expand the shade range. there are actually darker shades on the physicians formula website, not sure why ulta doesn't carry them. I have my fingers crossed for some paler shades in the future.
