Most Helpful Positive Review New fave!
I stopped using foundation over a year ago because I just could not get the effect I wanted. I wanted something full coverage to even out my complexion but those formulas were quite thick, felt cakey and oxidized badly throughout the day, leaving me either very pink or very orange. I completely gave up and just focused on skincare so I wouldn't have to wear foundation at all. However, wearing a mask every day and the general stress of being in a pandemic has not been kind to my skin and I found myself in need of a foundation once again. So when Influenster partnered with physicians formula and offered me this sample box I was thrilled. I got the foundation in the color "light" and it matched my skin very well. The consistency is fairly thin but it offers surprisingly good coverage. It was easy to apply and blend and holds well throughout the day for me. I also love the focus on skin health that this particular line emphasizes. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I love it. It has not made me break out and I feel like it creates a nice little barrier between the mask and my skin. Will for sure be purchasing more when I run out.

Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible...
I emailed PF concerning the discontinuation of The Healthy Foundation and this foundation was recommended as a replacement. First of all, they must have been joking. This doesn't even compare. Absolutely no coverage, and it made my dry skin look like sandpaper at application and then got worse as the day wore on. I couldn't apply enough moisturizer to keep this foundation from being dry and cakey. PF discontinued the one foundation I could actually wear (high end or otherwise) so I guess my search is on again because this is NOT it.

I was researching the ingredients that were used in this foundation, and was shocked to see that fragrance was included!! I used to use the healthy foundation and LOVED it! The gentle ingredients we're perfect for my sensitive/acne prone skin! Fragrance is one thing that triggers my acne and I'm so disappointed that this foundation contained it! I loved physicians formula because of its clean ingredients but not I'm not so sure!
Not a great product
Renee from Kuna, Idaho
It is much too thin and coverage is very poor. I have used PF for many years and have never had a complaint until trying this product. I understand that it says Sheer but this was beyond sheer. I have used other products that were light without coverage issues but not this one. I am very disappointed and would not recommend this product at all.

I bought this on a whim and really love it. I've chosen it over my much pricier foundations every day since I bought it. I just find that it has such a natural, blurring, flattering effect and is sheer but great coverage. I'm in front of a computer and windows so was drawn to the protective benefits but I love it because it looks great. The smell isn't off-putting to me and it dissipates after several seconds anyway. GREAT product!
Kristin Cook from Columbus, GA
I liked this product. It had pretty good coverage and smells nice. My only complaint was that I had to use moisturizer before applying or it didn't look good, whereas that's not necessary for some of my other foundations. Overall a good foundation though and I like that it has protection from things that are harmful to skin. | I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest review.
you NEED this!!!
Bnikki59 from Crowley Texas
I received this product complimentary from influenster for testing purposes. If you hadn't tied this please do. It really holds up to the full coverage age defying and spf it claims to. Doesn't Cake up and crease doesn't transfer very nice smooth for lawlessness coverage
Jane from undisclosed
I actually couldn't properly try this foundation. The color was too dark for my skin and the foundation was separating and very watered down. I received complimentary for review purposes
recommend for a lighter makeup
Pabli93 from Vallejo CA
I liked the coverage despite being a lighter coverage, the smell is super pleasant and I loved it because it has SPF 30
Not my favorite
JBD from Durham, NC
I don't wear a lot of drug store tier makeup, so for the price I was pleasantly surprised overall about the quality. However, it still left a thick, cakey "cheap makeup" finish that I hate. It sat in my forehead creases and didn't have a natural finish at all. On top of that, for a sensitive/hypoallergenic formula, there is a rather strong scent to it that I didn't like. I'm prone to scent-induced headaches, so having that on my face all day could be a deal breaker.
Glamxpao from Mexico
I received this by influenster. I loved the foundation, the applicator is great, the formula is hydration just perfect (I have lily skin) the coverage is great and buildable, you can have a more natural look or make it glam.
Simplyamiira from Houston
The shade I love. This foundation had a clear liquid coming out in the beginning even after trying to mix it several times.It will not blend properly.
Vanessahernandezx from Columbus
I received this product complimentary through Influenster! The foundation is very sheer so it is something I'd use on days I don't feel like doing a full glam or on weekdays I feel I'd want to wear more than just concealer for work! I did like how it gave the skin THAT GLOW especially for my dry skin! Also, if you love makeup that includes SPF then this is it for you♥️
Light coverage foundation
Jujubear from Las vegas, nevada
Received this product complimentary.
Pros: lightweight, spf protection, good for sensitive skin
Cons: has a paint smell, need to use a lot of product for medium coverage, very sheer
Not a fan
Danie7 from Louisiana
This foundation has great coverage and is super easy to apply. I love that it contains SPF. However, this product just isn't for me. It separated no sooner than it touched my skin. I tried different application and setting methods, and they all ended in the same result. I was very disappointed, but I'm sure it works great for some people! I was grateful to have received this complimentary to try!
Kristen from undisclosed
I received this product free from Influenster in exchange for my honest review.
I don't normally use foundation, preferring to stick with CC cream or moisturizer. I got the foundation in the color "light" and it was a little dark for my skin tone. The consistency is thin but it has good coverage. It was easy to blend and I like the dispenser. It has not made me break out though that often happens for me with SPF in foundation. If I start wearing foundation consistently, I may come back to this if they have a lighter shade!
Great budget option
Blm5078 from Fort Worth, TX
I love this for a budget foundation option. It's great wear for a normal day and just running errands. It provided great coverage and I love that it has spf! I did not like the pump. I went to squirt a pump on my hand and it shot so hard and far onto my shirt.

This product felt clean on my face, went on smoothly with my beauty blender and gave me just enough coverage. If you need a lot of coverage, I wouldn't recommend.
Sarah Jhayse from undisclosed
I received this product as a complimentary gift for testing purpose. The foundation has a sheer finish and medium coverage. It was enough to hide small pimples.
Must buy foundation
Alexis from NY,NY
I like this foundation a lot. I normally do not like to wear foundation because it feels heavy on my skin, however, this formula was light and the coverage made my skin look smooth and flawless. I received this product for free for testing purposes.
Nice and fresh look
Lizliz from Washington
Nice natural look and feel pretty nice and fresh look
Nice as an inexpensive option
Ddonna from NJ
Again very light coverage in this foundation but I love that it has SPF in it. Blends nicely and great for days when I know I'll be putting a mask on
Really didn't like this
DreaRenee from Staten Island, NY
I didn't like this product at all. First I got the wrong shade which was my fault. It was def a few shades too light. But it just kept breaking up on me. First few pumps was water and a little foundation. I kept shaking up the bottle but still it kept separating. I'd probably give it another go in my shade. But it just didn't sit on my skin or apply well for me. I had to put the concealer on top. Got this for free to test and review.
Nice lightweight foundation
Skgedvick from Detroit, MI
Received complimentary of Influenster.
I received the shade Light. I typically wear full coverage foundations like Estée Lauder Double Wear or Lancome Teint Idole, but this foundation really has been great on days when I don't want that full coverage, especially wearing a face mask every day! It's nice and light. The color is a tiny bit too orange for my skin tone, but I think the Fair-to -Light would've been too light. It's not bad though, and I would consider buying it again for a cheaper foundation alternative to keep in my makeup bag!
Bakeril from Ohio
Nothing special. It was fine but basic. Not on par with higher end products.
Dani from undisclosed
I really enjoyed the overall coverage of this product. It felt light weight on the skin and didn't look cakey. I was really happy when I saw that it has SPF in it as well since I spend a lot of time outside. The only draw back to this foundation is that by the end of the day it didn't look great on my skin.
I received this a complimentary sample
Love the spf!
AlexG from Grand Haven, MI
This foundation comes in a nice bottle with a pump dispenser to control how much product you get out at a time. I really like that it has spf in it. However, I feel like it kind of settles in my pores and highlights that, which I don't like. Overall, it's nice but I prefer others.
