Most Helpful Positive Review Holy grail foundation for dry acne prone ski
This foundation is amazing for acne prone dry skin. It doesn't break me out I think it has even helped my skin because it hydrates it through the day. It looks beautiful and performs suprisingly well in the heat with a good setting powder. I wear the light but the light is superrrrr light. I hope they come out with more shades cause more people should be able to enjoy it.
Most Helpful Critical Review So disappointed
I have used Physician's Formula foundations for several years and they have never disappointed me, until this foundation. I was using the Healthy Foundation and was crossing my fingers that this would compare, but am very disappointed. I feel like I have oil sitting on my skin all day, the coverage is poor (I'm not a full coverage person), and it settled in the creases on my face right from applying it. This does not feel like a Physician's Formula product, but a cheap product that any drugstore brand could sell. I guess I will be switching brands as there isn't much option left for face makeup with PF. :(

I bought this product to try after one of disaster of yours that I tried. This one also just sits on top of the skin and the coverage is terrible. And the price for that reason is out of line
Surprised by negative reviews
CM from NJ
I love it! I have combination skin and this didn't make my skin oily. It provides a good amount of coverage in spite of being thin in consistency. It looks like I'm not wearing makeup and just have natural great skin so it's perfect for everyday! If you're looking for something with full coverage or have super oily skin, this probably isn't what you're looking for.
Fresh and silicone free
Lu from AZ
I appreciate a light-coverage product that isn't crammed with silicones. Most silicone-free foundations I've tried make me feel like I'm sweating underneath all the waxes and butters they substitute for the silicone. This one feels breathable and skincare-like. Not overly dewy, but it doesn't lock down with that typical silicone dry down, so don't expect that full-coverage mask of makeup. Very natural and fresh. Settles in lines slightly, but not any more than other products and better than many other clean/natural products I've tried. The only issue is with the dropper mess. They have tubes with wipers for lipgloss and mascara wands, so why isn't there some sort of flexible insert at the top of the bottle that would wipe a decent amount of excess product off the outside of the dropper as it's being drawn out?!?

I actually wanted a different Physician's Formula foundation (that I love), but it was not at this store anymore. This one is ok. I probably won't buy it again, though. It almost feels like it has grains of sand in it. Not a lot, but every time I use it, I seem to feel a couple of hard pieces in it.

I tried this foundation on a whim and just love it! It looks beautiful on my dry mature skin--I should add I live in the desert too. I particularly like all the skincare ingredients in the formula that keep my face moisturized (along with my usual skincare routine) throughout the day. I only use a maximum of three drops and get the most natural look with the full coverage. Don't stop making this one! If you haven't tried it, it is truly worth it...
Color & wearability
Sheila from North Carolina
The organic wear silk foundation in medium is the perfect match for my skin. I also find that it is transfer free when wearing a mask, which I like very much.
This is it.

Love this foundation. It works best with the orgainc primer.
Light and breaths!
Megan H. from Haslet, TX
I bought this elixir on a whim for myself and my 70 year old mother. She has dry skin and I have oily skin. We both love this light to medium coverage. It is buildable but you don't need much. We both wear it all day and have slept(while traveling) in it and had zero issues. It doesn't itch, burn or sting. You barely notice it is on your skin. No issue with creasing or patching. We both have only used bare essentials in the past and we may have been converted to PF.
Lena from Nashville, TN
Allows the skin to breathe with still great coverage. Doesn't make me breakout
Beautiful for older skin!~
Denny from Rochester, MI
The feel of this foundation is liquid and sheer. Does not cake on very dry skin, does not accumulate in lines. I'm 61 with good genes and with that came a light olive skin which can be sallow. This is perfect and better than high end foundations that spend a fortune. The ingredients are amazing, no alcohol or parabins. Non greasy yet glides like silk. Less is more when we are older and this is a tone enhancer rather than a pan-cake like make up if that is what you are looking for. One star off for the fact choosing a shade can be tricky, go a bit darker for a perfect look, and btw there is no oxidation. I don't care for all PF products but this one is a home run. Love it!~
For your no makeup, makeup days
Ari from Texas
The coverage is cute not a full coverage but not a moisturizer either. I have dry super sensitive skin and this doesn't cause breakouts for me. I'm not a fan of the dropper applicator it can get messy that's why I have it 4 stars
Light-medium coverage for everyday
Tay Elizabeth from Michigan
This is also really great for if you're spending the days outdoors or on the river since it's light & not a heavy consistency
I miss the old cc formula
Mrichmond from Chicago, IL
This foundation is really runny and has a chalky finish
The worst ever
Prisat from Sanford, fl
Didn't cover anything, my face was sooo oily with this thing and color dropped after a couple of hours and after 5 hours all of it was gone from my face!??!! Then broke me out after a few days. Absolutely nightmare.
Messy, skin looks dry
ConsciousSkin from Milwaukee
The dropper is very messy, foundation comes out watery.
Coverage is okay to even out skin tone, but will not cover any blemishes. My skin looks like the Sahara dessert once applied. I've used many products from Physicians Formula for the last 10 years but this is my least favorite.
Aisha from undisclosed
I like that this foundation has yellow tones to it. It's very full coverage. I love it!
Colr is true to expectationd
Crdcher from Desert
Spreads quickly.. not a thick glopoy kind of cover.
Organic Wear foundation, mascara & brow gel
Susan from Alabama
I was extremely disappointed. I ordered 4 Physicians Formula products: mascara, brow gel, blush & this foundation. I threw away 3. Their original organics line was EXCELLENT. I will never buy Physicians Formula again.
Causes break outs
Dani from CA
Normally I love physicians formula and I so badly wanted to love this however like with a lot of other people it causes me to break out.
That being said I was a fan of the light coverage it gives. I have freckles and often look for products that will even out my skin tone but not cover up the freckles and this did a good job of that. Will probably keep the two bottles I have to add to other products to create my perfect color. When I've done that with this product is doesn't upset my skin like it does when it's the main product I use
Holly from undisclosed
I love The Healthy Skin Foundation, which is hard to find available in my shade. I thought I'd try this one instead. It does not compare. It sinks into each individual pore, extenuating every single pore on your face. My skin looked better before putting it on. I tried it 3x before deciding it wasn't the foundation for me.
"Dewy" is an understatement
LGO from KY
I bought this foundation about 3 months ago and really want to love it. It matches my skin tone pretty well, blends out well, and a little goes a long way. The problem with this foundation is it doesn't give me a youthful dewy look...it's more like a sweaty look all over my face...almost like a tinted gel mask never dries. I have tried different primers with this product, and no primer at all. It's always the same. I honestly think the foundation would be a good product, but only for people with a dry skin tone.
The worst foundation ever!
Jay219 from canada
I have dry skin so I went into using this product thinking that it would be amazing!
however it creases under the eyes even when set with setting powders (I tried it with a couple different powders), wears terribly throughout the day, all my powders grabbed at it so the texture of it on my skin was patchy.
overall was super unimpressed and will not be repurchasing or using the rest of the bottle.
Not great for oily and acne prone skin
Libbie from Fort Worth, TX
I've been using this for about two weeks and haven't had success. The only changes I've made to my skin care was introducing this product and within two days of using it I've had a serious break-out that has been worsening. With my oily skin, this foundation just exacerbated the oils so my face appears shiny whenever I use it. Despite all the moisturizling properties, my skin is still dry enough that it flakes, especially around the areas that swelled from the break-outs. It's not for me.
Lorrie from South Texas
I have found my favorite foundation. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't wear all day.
KayFL from Florida
I was hoping this would be similar to the healthy foundation which I loved but sadly it's not. This has little to no coverage and just feels blah on my face. I also breakout after every time I've worn it. After looking at the ingredients I'm sure that's due to the coconut oil in it.
I should've read the description closer I guess because I wouldn't have purchased had I known that was an ingredient. If you already have perfect skin this may be the foundation for you but I would not buy again
