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 tend to not use a lot of physicians fourmula since they aren't cruelty free, but this foundation is still one of my favorites in my collection.
Sits on my face
emma from AR
Had high hopes for this after hearing good things. I applied with my normal foundation brush several times during my testing week and I hate this and will be passing it on. it sits on top of my skin. highlights every crease, pore and dry patch. you can just see the foundation clearly.
Clean and affordable
Sensitive skin from Illinois
This foundation is the only truly clean AND affordable foundation. I have very sensitive skin, rosacea issues, and this is the only foundation i can wear. Please dont ever change it!!!
allergic/glad I didn't pay full price
blondie from CA
read the ingredients before you buy. I just purchased this today and put it on I only had it in for 5 minutes when my the side of my face started burning and feeling hot. I wanted to like this product but the dropper doesn't work and I can't wear it.
Doesn't stand up against the healthy foundation
EA from undisclosed
I'm very disappointed. I purchased this mistakenly thinking the healthy foundation had been rebranded. The formula doesn't come close to comparing. The applicator doesn't work and the coverage is poor, making my skin appear dry and flaky. I used this, hated the look, washed it off and squeezed out the last of my healthy foundation - the difference was night and day. Please bring back the healthy foundation.

I don't have many skin issues, and just need foundation to tone slight redness. This is complete trash. Only tried because my favorite bb cream is discontinued.
Beautiful finish If you work at it
Cbone73 from Manitoba, Canada
I have mixed feelings about this foundation. I bought it right after finding out my most favorite foundation ever (PF Healthy Foundation) was discontinued. I had high hopes that it would be at least close the same but sadly it is not.
After some trial and error I found when applying I need to use a flat brush first to get it onto the skin (it's very watery), then my fingers, then a sponge to get rid of the crazy amount of streaks. After all that work it is beautiful. It has this soft beautiful skin like finish but I shouldn't have to work so hard to get it to that point. It is nice to my acne prone skin and like all PF skin products does not cause me any breakouts and keeps my skin in good shape if not a little bit better than before.
I did find that getting it wet with rain or dare I say tears is a huge NO NO! It will leave you with streaks that are completely unfixable. You cannot pat out the streaks, you have to remove all the makeup if it gets wet.
I really hope that there is a better foundation on the way considering not only The Healthy Foundation is discontinued but also the very beautiful Nude Wear Touch Of Glow Foundation. Fingers crossed That Physicians formula has something better up their sleeve.

I would buy this again.

I bought this for my daughter, she liked the feel and coverage.
Amazing and Flawless
Emma from Birmingham
I honestly was very surprised on how many people did not like it but it is amazing it goes on flawlessly and it is full coverage!
My skin doesn't like it
vanillana from Springvale, ME
It sits on my pores and creases and by the end of the day there are missing blotches of foundation on my face. Tried it with various primers, brushes and sponges. No luck to get it to look as nice as the Healthy Foundation.
hope they never take this off the market

I put on my moisterizer/sunscreeen.if needed i add some concealer on my red cheeks. then apply this lightly all over with my fingers. i do not use a brush . i bought many high end foundations before finding this one. if you have dry skin, or you are over 40 and don't want to look like you are trying to cover wrinkles and aging this is great. i think the older we get the less coverage is best. I LOVE putting this on everyday. if you have oily skin or want heavy coverage this is not for you. this is light to buildable medium coverage. like i said i would use a higher coverage concealer and then put this where you don't need much coverage.just beautiful!!!!

I really miss all of the old physician formula face makeup. I used the argan bb in light and it was my most favorite ever! And then moved to the healthy which was a little more drying but beautiful coverage: now that is just about gone as well. This new one is horrible. I have dry skin and this is so greasy and oily. It made me have itchy skin which is a never from physicians formula! It hardly had any coverage(I don't like full coverage but this was hardly even a light) and it settles in to fine lines. I'm so sorry to say because I love physicians formula and have worn for about 12 years, but this is truly horrible for their normal quality.
another bad product
Jeanne from Washington
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.
poseymom from Phoenix, AZ
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!~
this is a good...

this is a good foundation but not one of my favorites. it gives good coverage and i love the formula and how you apply it with a dropper. im not saying its a bad foundation i just have ones that i prefer more
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
