Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation was sent complimentary in a VoxBox to me by Influenster. This foundation is very impressive for being so inexpensive. It has a beautiful medium to full coverage and it layers really well. You dont need to use a lot of product to get coverage. The finish is very glowing and dewy but it doesnt look greasy. This is definitely ideal for a dry skin type though because I can see this looking greasy on a oily skin type. The packaging is beautiful and luxurious with a luxurious with a pipette for easy distribution of product. I find the medium shade suits my skin tone very well, Im about an NC35.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect skin in a bottle I just picked this up from Walmart and after searching for my holy grail foundation for years, I think I've found it. This reminds me of an improved, better ingredient version of a Loreal favorite that was discontinued a few years ago. The finish is satin-matte with fingers or a brush, and a beautiful, skin smoothing finish with a damp sponge. My skin looks like Katie Jane Hughes on Instagram and I'm obsessed. I had also been waiting for a thin, weightless formula from the drugstore for years and PF has done it. This foundation checks all my boxes EXCEPT for the coconut oil in it. I haven't checked to see how far up it is on the ingredient list, I just hope I don't break out. Also, I have very large pores and this blurs them. Only reason one star is knocked off is the coconut oil, otherwise, no complaints.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was excited to try this because I love Physicians Formulas The Healthy Foundation, but I was a bit dissapointed. This claims to have oils in which initially I thought would make it a great hydrating product. However, upon application this really liked to stick to dry areas on my face and not evenly apply. The color is a bit light for me, which is shocking because I am a bit fair. This is also a good thing because fair skin girls are able to get this to try. The shade range is decent with going into to darker shades. Maybe I was expecting too much? I even made sure my skin was properly hydrated and still I didn't like how it looked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 out of 10 I bought this foundation @ Walmart & it has changed my life. I have extremely uneven skin due to bad scarring on my face & this is the only foundation I have ever tried that didn’t settle into the scars or make me look “cakey” or orange. I’ve spent up $45 on foundation & this is still superior to anything I’ve found at Ulta.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ive really enjoyed using this. Currently using it instead of my usual NYX cant stop wont stop foundation. Its definitely lightweight and goes a long way! The first time I applied it, I applied the same amount I would use for any of my foundations and actually found it to be too much and thus was too cakey. However the next time I used it, I used a quarter of what I would use and it was perfect! Coverage is great for being so lightweight, really nice everyday foundation. The color I got is pretty good but is a bit on the pink undertone (I have yellow undertones). But, it wasnt horrible! Just a little bronzer and it was fine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Soft This is like a cream and a foundation in one: similar to a serum consistency, this foundation leaves the skin super soft after removal. The wear is light and smooth. I would not recommend layering. I would say this is a sheer formula. The lightest color is VERY light and may be perfect for those with extremely white skin or freckles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a big fan of foundations, I always try to test as much as possible, so I can find my perfect one. Among my favorite foundations are: It Cosmetics, Urban Decay and YSL. I do prefer full coverage mostly. So I was a bit sceptic about this one. I do not always use primer before, but I did with this one, because I didnt know what to expect. So, honestly I was surprised how good is that! It is really silky, it is easy to apply, very smooth and full coverage. Also I would say it is absolutely long lasting, because you need a little amount for the whole face. It stays on the face pretty long too (4-5 hours for sure, then youll need to correct it). I will definitely recommend it to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recieved this foundation complementary from influenster, for testing purposes. I was happy to receive this product. I wore it for a week straight, it's a medium coverage but can be built up to full. The finish is a satin like dewy but not oily. The consistency is really runny but not in a bad way. Easy to work with and doesn't dry extremely fast. I love the Formula it's so smooth and extremely light weight and does not sit on top your skin. It's like your skin but better. My only complaint is the packaging. I wish it came in a pump but other than that i would recommend the foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The product itself goes on pretty smoothly, but you have to make sure to shake it before applying, because it has an oil it in that separates. The color is pretty nice and matched my skin tone fairly well considering I was not able to try it before receiving it. I wore it all day and it stayed on well without any setting powder or setting spray, but it wasnt warm out, so I dont know how it would hold in the heat because of the oil. It did irritate my skin a little, so I woke up with quite a bit of acne after wearing it, which doesnt usually happen with my usual foundation, but thats pretty much my only complaint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I unfortunately was not a fan of this foundation. I prefer a full coverage foundation and this just was not up to par with other products. The application process is okay, but the formula overall is very runny. I also needed to put a lot on to get an all over full coverage look. The shade I received was also insanely dark for my normal skin tone, as well as a bit on the orange side, so I couldnt even dare to wear it out of the house in fear of being mistaken as an Oompa Loompa. Since the shade was very dark, I did not wear it out and about and wiped it off after a few minutes. After taking it off, my skin felt very dry. Overall, I was not impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful for older skin!~ 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!~

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this from a Voxbox but this is my honest opinion. The shade I got is a tad bit too light for me but its not too bad. First, the formula is the most watery formula i experienced with foundations. It has a dropper so that is convenient to use. Because it is so watery, you really have to blend it into your skin. Also start off with like 2 drops knly and then build your coverage up. I think this foundation cannot really be that buildable though because it is so watery and dries dewey. So this foundation is good for those who want light coverage, just to even out your skintone. There's no smell to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get it. Now!! I am 68, love makeup, and want to look my best. I have recently been enjoying a more dewy look with a more natural and light foundation. Why? It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. I have 9 different foundations in my rotation and this Organic Wear Silk Foundation Elixir is my new far. In fact, this is the only foundation I have worn since I received it! I am that impressed with the look. It doesn't even settle into my laugh lines or fine lines around my lips. It looks great and I feel great wearing this elixir. This is the foundation I have been dreaming about since I became "more mature". Mature that is in number only. I truly feel age is just a number and with the right products I can look years younger than I actually am. I just don't see how I can even reach for my other foundations now that I have discovered Organic Wear Silk Foundation Elixir. Get it. Now!! Believe me, you will be very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okayyy so this has me SHOOOOOKETHHHH! At first I looked at it and said to myself eh, idk this looks a little too dark for me, I hope my face doesnt look too far off from my neck. And then .... I. PUT. IT. ON! it was the most PERFECT shade Ive ever wore on my face!!! It was literally my exact color, I couldnt even tell it was on my face after putting it on. It was so soft and easily blendable but really covers well! I had some red patches on my cheeks that it covered fully. I found my new perfect match foundation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product but I recently purchased this product at Walmart. I have sensitive oily acne prone skin. I tried this product and do like it very much however the coconut oil is concerning. Not good for acne prone skin. Physicians Formula, you have a great product that provides a nice light coverage. Please make a second type with low comedegenic values for acne prone skin, that way folks who have acne, and there are many of us can use this product without concern. The product must be shaken vigorously to distribute the oils and I found it to provide nice lightweight coverage which I loved but again the Coconut oil is breaking me out. A moisturizer under this makeup, I feel is not needed. Please reformulate this Product for people with Acne. It will be a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the weight of this! It blended in perfectly with my fingers and I bet it will look great with a beauty sponge, too. The color is almost perfect for my light-olive skin. Its a nice medium coverage. I recommend moisturizing underneath of you have any amount of dryness. The finish is perfect; dewy without looking or feeling greasy. I wish the applicator was different; when I put the dropper back in, product gets on the rim of the bottle. Not perfect, but tolerable. It wears well, but when I dont set it with powder I did get some transfer. It didnt settle into lines or around my nose at all. Super happy with this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t stand up against the healthy foundation 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let me start off by saying that Im very particular when it comes to my cover-up. I am a one brand type of person because its the only cover-up that I feel like matches my skin tone perfectly. This was until I recently tried physician formula is organic silk foundation elixir. The elixir has a very watery consistency but applies to the face naturally. Its a full coverage that leaves my skin looking natural. No coverup lines, no cakeyness, just a beautiful product. This will be my new coverup and I refuse to go back to using cover girl after discovering this elixir. I highlyyytt recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this product in my Influenster Physicians Formula Vox Box. This is light, buildable coverage, foundation that I love. Its not too matte and not too dewy. It has a very skin like finish and give a lit-from-within kind of look. This is very lightweight and doesnt look cakey. I like mixing it with a drop of the Physicians Formula Bright Booster Oil Elixer, which I also received in the Vox Box, and that gives me a more luminous look to my skin. I think this would be good for normal-dry skin because its not drying or too heavy on the skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really liked this foundation. Ive worn it for both daytime and nighttime wear, as well as day-to-night, and it has always looked good! Its very light and I basically forget Im wearing foundation when Im wearing this. The color matches very well, and it doesnt cling to the dry patches on my face! One downside (aka the reason for the 4/5 star rating) is the way it reacts with my skin. I have combo skin, but I feel like this product enhances the oils and can almost make my skin feel slick by the end of the day or night. However, I still enjoy this product and will continue to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love the concept of this product, love the ingredients, and the shade was alright. However my biggest issue was how the product would cling to every single pore and imperfection on my skin. Even paired with my favorite primer and setting powder. Even with no primer or setting powder, even with a different application technique it did not work for me. However, its just my experience, we all have different skin types and react differently to products. I love the concept and integrity of the product and brand it just didnt work for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my first day wearing this foundation after getting it. It's in a glass bottle with a dropper for application. The formula is very watery, in a good way. It does not take much to cover everything. Definitely buildable coverage. I used a BeautyBlender sponge to apply after a little concealer, and firstly I was very impressed at the color. From just picking out the shade from my phone, it matches very well. I also feel like it's a great neutral undertone, not too red or yellow. It's been over an hour with it on and there's very minimal oxidation. I used a light setting powder over it. It has a very natural finish, almost dewy. Overall I like it very much. I regularly use a MUFE liquid foundation, so I was surprised at the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this foundation! The coverage is amazing and easily built up, and the product itself feels really hydrating which is perfect for winter. The applicator is unique but ultimately I enjoyed it, and the amount of product you use can be controlled fairly easily. My one complaint, and the reason for one less star, is that I do feel the foundation (it feels heavy on the skin). However, setting the product with powder helps a ton. I did receive a lot of compliments while wearing this foundation, and I do recommend it! Just be wary if you tend to be on the oily side - this foundation may accentuate that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Beautiful This is such a beautiful easy to blend foundation, no scent that I notice. I have normal to dry skin and this works beautiful for me and the dropper and the packaging is very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this product! It stayed on fairly well and I wore it for about 14 hours (the picture is 14 hours after application) The only spots it started coming off were my nose and chin toward the end of the night. I did mix it with a little BB cream as it felt a little dry when I was applying it and that seemed to help spread a little more evenly and I liked the feel a little better after I mixed it. Overall, I really liked the foundation and will definitely keep wearing it! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural I love how natural and skin like this foundation looks . I would give it five stars if they had foundation swatches or showed the foundation on models. It was really hard to pick a color based on just the picture of the bottle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Absolute Worst Foundation I used this foundation because PF had discontinued The Healthy Foundation (WHICH STILL BLOWS MY MIND). I have normal to dry skin and this formula was very drying, not to mention has a strange baby powder smell...
Date published: 2020-11-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new fave drugstore foundation! First of all, I love the shades this comes in, Im so happy the one I received was a perfect match for me. The packaging is similar to other prestige beauty products for double or triple the price. The formula is very thin so be careful that you dont let it drip on any fabric items (stains like a b) but..... Ive never had a drugstore foundation feel as light, gives me great coverage, and still looks smooth throughout the day like this one. Only thing is by about 12pm my skin starts to look oily with this one but if I just add a touch of powder it goes back to normal!

My foundation has a gritty like texture that eventually seems to rub out after applying... is this normal? I have never felt a foundation that feels like it has exfoliating beads in it before.

Asked by: TMamm
Many of us are complaining about the grit in this makeup. It is time for Physicians Formula to answer us and tell us what this grit is. If we are spending our money on a defective product, we have the right to be informed.

i saw this at the drugstore and the oil seems to have separated in the bottle. Is it still OK to wear? 

Asked by: coco
Yes it's OK. Just make sure to shake it before hand and keep in mind that it is a VERY thin/runny formula.

I just purchased this for the first time. It appears to have some crystal/rocky substance in it. I have shaken it up. Emptied out the dropper and it still has this pebble like substance. I purchased it at WalMart.

Asked by: Pam
Happened to me too. I ordered it through Amazon. Thought the first foundation maybe just had a formulation problem. I tried four different bottles and all of them had this gritty substance in them. I cant imagine this is what the foundation is supposed to be like, and after being burned four times I gave up.

Should I remove this product at the end of the day?

Asked by: clara12
YES. Yhis is not a skincare product. You will need to remove it before going to bed, if you want your skin to stay healthy over time. I mean, if once in a while you forgot to take it off, there would be no noticeable skin problems but its always good to take your makeup off at the end of the day
