This sounds clever – and it *is* clever. Perricone MD’s No Foundation Foundation does exactly what it promises: it evens out the complexion with a translucent finish, tones down flushing and adds a handy SPF 30, without adding colour to the face. (It comes in one universal shade to suit all Caucasian skin tones.)
I use this on no meeting days and at the weekends, when I want my skin to look dewy and refreshed, without a heavy finish. (My rosacea needs a bit more help for a full make up look, so I rely on MAC or Estee Lauder during the week.)
In a way, it’s not far off from a BB cream – although it’s been around longer, as it also promises treatment (anti-oxidant), cosmetic and SPF in one tube.
