Awful colors awful smell heavy

By Leslie

from Somewhere

Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

Actually never hated a color more then the second color made my face look so grey for being considered a neutral wasn't that fond of it Period felt heavy when all I had were cream products on my face literally bought it a half hour and I'm going to return it probably later . The wet n wild cushion is so much better and such a better finish sticking to that one had high hopes for it but I can't stand it

      Blew my oily face away

      By vanessa

      from California

      Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

      I have oily acne prone skin and this was a dream radiant foundation! perfect for everyday but i can totally pull off an *out of the town look of I set it with my Too Faced PP matte power. Also, my face looked better each time after using it. must be the HA it has. the only draw back personally is the chemical sunscreen in it.

      So Far so Good

      By Teanne

      from Los Angeles

      Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

      I have combination & sensitive skin with large pores. This foundation surprisingly provided a matte coverage, without feeling dry, and applied super smooth. It's also lightweight and feels great on. I had several people compliment me on my skin since I started using this.

      Natural finish

      By laurand

      from Kansas

      Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

      Light to medium coverage foundation. Definitely oxidizes so beware! Not matte or dewy finish very natural and very long wearing doesn't budge throughout a long day.

        Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

        I have been using Urban decay's Naked foundation for a few months, and just cannot justify the $40. I'm 35 years old with fair to medium skin and quite a bit of red/pink undertones. I still struggle with adult acne from time to time, but thankfully do not have an issue with wrinkles yet; just large pores and oily skin. However, I am a flight attendant who lives in the West, so I also have issues with dry patches. It's annoying.
        I spend a lot of time outdoors when I'm off work - I cannot wear makeup that looks heavy in the sun. I'm very picky - it MUST look natural!

        That said, this makeup is PERFECT! It's not heavy at all, but it has better coverage than Naked even did, in my opinion. It looks and FEELS incredibly natural - and stays for long periods of time. And it doesn't make me break out - even if I wear it to the gym! As a matter of fact, I think my skin feels better after wearing this. It takes about one to two dips with the Dipper for me to get all the coverage I need. I'll even use it to conceal my problem spots with a concealer brush and it does just fine.

        Also, I don't use a flash very often in pictures, but I have not noticed any flashback.

        I'm LW1 and it may be a tad too light for me, but it hides my pinks and is manageable with some bronzer. I may try a shade darker next purchase. Please don't stop making this!

        No no no with my pores and oiliness

        By Neecole

        from KS

        Comments about Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20:

        I hoped this was going to be the fit for my aging skin but no. For ME it did not hold up well to my oiliness and I felt it actually accentuated my pores and such. Sorry...returned.
