Rated 1 out of 5 by from HARD NO Why would you take away the healthy foundation? I have emailed PF with no response. I have made numerous comments on Facebook asking why you would discontinue something that everyone loves. Your response on Facebook: “try Walmart”..... Really? Walmart has been out of this product for MONTHS. This “new” foundation is NOTHING like the healthy foundation. Can you maybe at least bring back a foundation with similar ingredients to the HF? Thank you,min advance. In the meantime, I will now have to start all over to try and find a foundation that works for me from another brand. (I bought the last 4 bottles of HF from my local CVS and am now on my last bottle).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too light and strong smell At first look, the foundation seemed very thin. I was skeptical of how far the foundation would go. But it surprised me! It was able to cover my skin real easily. It also had a strong, floral smell. I enjoyed the scent, but some may not like it. Since the foundation doubles as an SPF, it worked very well at protecting from any sunburn, however it was lighter on my skin than expected. Thank goodness I had their Finishing Powder on hand to deepen my skin tone just a bit! I like how the product spreads across the face, however it does tend to separate from natural face oils throughout the day. I think that is the only downside of the product for me. P.S. I received this product from Influenster in return for an honest review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Dark Oily Skin I am a darker complected African-American female who tried this product for the first time. I used the shade “Rich” and it was the perfect match for my red undertones. With already having oily skin, I was very hesitant about this product but after using the finishing powder with this foundation, i can say it gave me the perfect matte look. Inside it looks full matte, outside it’s the perfect glow without leaving my skin feeling oily or dewy in my troubled areas. I’m highly impressed and will be using this more often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Can’t believe they replaced the heathy foundation with this garbage. The Healthy Foundation is my #1 favorite foundation of all time. When I found out they were discontinuing it I bought 4 bottles of it. Figured I would give this one a try because of the cute packaging and being into more lightweight natural foundations but that was a mistake. Feels so heavy and oily on my skin and just didn’t last at all. Not only than, but this is extremely overpriced. I know physicians formulas has higher prices and I don’t mind paying that when the product is good but that is not the case here. The Healthy foundation was the greatest thing about this brand and they went and ruined it. Still haven’t found a good replacement for that foundation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ughhh bring back the healthy foundation This is NO replacement for the almost PERFECT FOUNDATION they already had.... this is a shame BRING BACK THE HEALTHY FOUNDATION ! It's your best product besides the butter bronzers and some hidden American drugstore skincare gems..... Hate when brands mess with things or discontinue their best products

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not as great as Healthy Foundation Sadly, I haven’t been able to find my ride-or-die favorite foundation which is the Physician’s Formula Healthy Foundation in LN4. I tried the Natural Defense foundation and am very unhappy with it. It has very little coverage & doesn’t make my skin look as amazing as the Healthy Foundation did. I’m hoping Physicians Formula does the right thing & bring the Healthy Foundation back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not meet my expectations Sadly, this product does not measure up to The Healthy Foundation. I don’t understand why they took a great product off the market and replaced it with something substandard that everyone is unhappy with. It does not make any sense and I refuse to buy from the brand going forward.

Please consider bringing back the Healthy Foundation. I FINALLY had found the absolute best foundation I'd ever used. It was wonderful. So disappointed. Thank you for considering my request.

Asked by: Lisa
So agree! Healthy Foundation is freaking awesome. It's such a good price and performs well. I hate the other ones and the colour range is not good.

What amount of coverage does this product provide?

Asked by: Veronikki
It provides better than I thought. It can be built up to a medium

I was using the CC cream daily for years and was very happy with it! This was recommended as a replacement, but it contains chemical sun protection so I will not be trying it. Please bring back the CC cream with MINERAL sun protection!
