Rated 4 out of 5 by from This has quickly become my new go to foundation! It's light to medium coverage but def not full. So if you like full coverage this won't be for you. However it looks like skin and leave a natural finish. I'm giving it 4 stars because it does not last long on the skin. If you set it really well and use a setting spray you can get like 6 hours of wear maybe. For me its perfect for everyday and when it fades it fades beautifully. It's not like there foundation patches it all jut kinda goes together. But really this is worth thing I really love it despite its wearability. I think it would work with all skin types, dry skin use a hydrating primer, oily skin use a mattifying primer and you'll be good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the reason i’m only the reason i’m only giving four stars is because of the SMELL. it smells like paint to me. but it has pretty good coverage and i have redness and some discoloration on my skin and it covers it up almost flawlessly. the packaging is pretty nice, it has a like thick lipgloss type applicator, i kind of like it because you can put what you want on your skin without having to pour foundation onto something. it’s a little unsanitary because it can collect bacteria, but as long as your skin is cleaned before you apply your makeup it shouldn’t be too bad for your skin. overall i like this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Despite so-so reviews on YouTube, I really wanted to try this foundation because everyone mentioned the natural finish. I really like it! My biggest problem is that the doe foot applicator is stupid and you have to keep dipping it in to get enough product but it really does look lovely on the skin! It is not a long-lasting foundation, and usually wears off at the 8-10 hour mark, but on my oily skin, everything does so I don't mind. It only gets to a medium coverage which is fine. I'm mw2 which is perfect for summer, but the shade down is way too light. I highly recommend giving it a shot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite foundation This is my favorite foundation. I’d rather use this one, over any high end foundation I own. It works great and blends out easily. The coverage is medium to high and the foundation is long lasting on my combination skin. I usually purchase the shade LN3, but I noticed it’s been out of stock for a while. And I just found out that the foundation is being discontinued. Please, don’t discontinue such a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don’t discontinue a product that can’t be r This foundation is fantastic! It is the only product I have found that procides the right amount of coverage, and is very natural. I did have to buy it online. The stores no longer carry it. Please join me in asking the company to NOT discontinue this great produ. It took me years to find a foundation that provided perfect coverage and did not cause adult cystic acne. Please keep making this! It is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whyyyyyy would you discontinue this? This foundation was beloved and unmatched and of course Physicians Formula had to discontinue it. So hard to trust a company when they continuously discontinue good products. The new foundation that replaced this one does not compare in the slightest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please NEVER stop making this foundation!! I got this foundation recently and I am in love!! It looks absolutely beautiful on my skin, almost like I am not even wearing any makeup. Dries down nicely and lasts me all day. My ONLY complaint is that I prefer a pump vs the doe foot applicator.
Date published: 2020-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this foundation. It covers everything I need it to on most days, and is probably about medium coverage. It lasts all day for me, with no creasing or caking anywhere on my face. My only complaint would be that the doe foot applicator doesn’t pick up much product, so I end up dipping it back in at least five times to get enough on my face, usually more. In my experience this one does apply best with a sponge. I typically use the pink L’Oréal sponge, and get great results. It still looks fine with a brush, but just better with a sponge. Overall I love this product. A lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, creamy natural foundation. I found it to be a medium coverage that was buildable. I prefer a more natural look and so only used it cover some redness on my cheeks and chin. I have combination skin and found this left my tzone a bit greasy by days end. However it looked really good everywhere else at the end of the day. I have a light, slightly medium skin tone and I chose LN4. I thought it might be too dark but the tone was very neutral and the color was perfect. The only con I can see at this point is the scent. It smells strongly like paint and lasts longer than I would like on my face. I love the applicator though and find this to be a very creamy foundation that blended out very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice I like this except it has a weird coffee like does dissipate which Im happy about bc I may not use it if it didn't ..other than that it leaves a nice natural finish and lasts a long time skin is normal to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why would you discontinue a best seller? This foundation is on your best sellers list - why would you discontinue it? That makes absolutely no business sense. I would definitely recommend this to a friend but obviously I can’t since it’s being discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation I’ve Ever Used!! I have been buying this foundation for over a year now, which is very rare for me to find foundation I consistently use and like. I have bought all of the higher end foundations, like tarte, urban decay, este lauder, etc and none of them did the job like physicians formula! this is the type of foundation that gives coverage, but also feels lightweight and looks extremely natural. I struggle with acne so I need the coverage, but could never find something that also looks so natural. I am also a huge fan of the applicator brush that comes with it, I hate having to poor liquid foundation onto my hand when applying, so this makes it SO easy. I highly recommend to anyone thinking about buying this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Bring Back I have been using this for a long time and have been trying to find it, but I see here that it’s been discontinued. It has great coverage and lasts all day. Please bring back The Healthy Foundation:(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Ever! Was this foundation discontinued??? If so, please bring it back. I have never had a better foundation and it's been so difficult finding something that can replace it! I really hope it comes back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Healthy Foundation with SPF 20 definitely gives you that brightening “I’m Awake” look. The blend-ability of this foundation is very smooth, it feels and looks natural on the skin — strive for the “no makeup, makeup look.” It has a cool undertone I must say but doesn’t affect your appearance once you’ve completed your makeup routine. It has a strong paint smell (kind of like Mac but a little stronger) it doesn’t linger and it fades away. The applicator is very big in my opinion, and I have to double/triple dip. It’ll last you all day if you don’t sweat, as it’s not sweat proof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow thank you Kathleenlights for introducing me to this amazing AND affordable foundation. It’s great for an every day use with the perfect amount of medium coverage so you don’t look like you caked on. It blends very well and I love the dewy look it leaves my skin. People have mentioned the smell of this product but it does not bother me. I’m also a huge fan of the packaging because the applicator doesn’t dump a huge amount of foundation on my skin. You can always build it up with this application. Will continue to purchase because this is just as good as any high end foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picked this up at Walmart last night because I have seen it around being reviewed and really wanted to try it out. Um can I just say, as someone who has oily skin in the summer and less oily and more dry skin during the winter, this would work for both. It has spf but it actually doesn’t oxidize as much as I thought it would! It feels so amazing, like it feels like I’m wearing a moisturizing serum than a foundation and I love the applicator! I use a brush to apply it and it gives the most BEAUTIFUL buildable coverage! No cake face, just beautiful, natural finish! Thank you everyone on here for posting about it or I wouldn’t have thought about it! [product:physicians-formula-the-healthy-foundation-spf-20]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! I’ve been through more foundations than I even care to think about. Dozens at least. I’ve tried everything from cheap CoverGirl liquid foundation, to MAC’s cream base, all the way to Bare Mineral’s powder foundation. All different mediums in different price ranges just searching for the “perfect” one. Then I came across Physicians Formula. It’s fantastic! I have both dry and oily skin at the same time (which is very frustrating) and I have uneven skin tone. And on top of all that I have many imperfections such as old acne scars. Let’s just say my skin needs A LOT of work. Physicians Formula does it all! It has a brightening complex that evens out your color and dramatically hides any imperfections that you might have. It moisturizes your skin without leaving any oily type of feeling. And it still manages to stay light and breathable. The best part though is it stays on ALL DAY. I honestly can’t say enough good things about it! I know everyone is different and everyone’s skin type is different so my results might not be the same as someone else, but I would still HIGHLY recommend giving it a shot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This foundation is a great option that won't break the bank, although the smell is abit overwhelming. It goes on smooth onto my skin not catching any dry patches and I like that it has SPF in it. I have sensitive/combination skin so I'm not too surprised that I sometimes have a pimple or two after wearing it for a long period of time but they go away pretty quickly. Also at the time I purchased this foundation LC1 was the lightest shade they offered and now they have even lighter shades! I will for sure be purchasing one of fair shades even though it does still have some cons.
Date published: 2019-06-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was excited tyi try this foundation because my best friend had raved about it. Well, I finally found it in my shade and decided to give it a try. The first time I tried it i used a more expensive primer. I was very disappointed. First of all, I absolutely hate the applicator! I don't feel like a foundation should have a doe foot applicator, I prefer a pump. Second, the foundation started separating before I was even done doing my makeup. The second time I tried it with a different primer but had the same separation problems. This foundation definitely did not work for me.
Date published: 2018-05-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dry! I purchased because I was trying to replace a tube of PF that was like a bb creme. First of all, the applicator (?), I don't like something going back into the bottle after it touches my skin, don't know what bacteria could populate in the bottle. Then, IT WAS DRY! It dried before I could smooth over face, no moisturising as far as I could see.
Date published: 2019-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have very combination skin, I get dry patches but my skin gets very oily throughout the day. And this foundation is amazing on my skin, I have acne and it covers it. It is medium coverage but it builds like a dream. It doesn’t oxidize and the undertones of the foundations are spot on. Some neutral shades are never grey enough on me but this one is perfect. It stays on all day too and it doesn’t break up, definitely one of my new favorite foundations. I love it so much. And it looks so smooth on my skin and I have a lot of texture so that’s saying a lot. I highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shade is wrong The shade was different than the other LN4 I bought. I’m confused why it changed
Date published: 2020-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The closest shade match I have been using this foundation for awhile now. I wear LN4 and it is the closest shade match I have ever found! It looks natural while also covering up my blemishes. I am super bummed because all my local stores have stopped carrying this! Please do not discontinue this product! I hate trying to find a new foundation, it is so difficult.
Date published: 2020-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from After all the money I have spent on base, who would have thought I would find my holy grail at the drug store? I absolutely love this foundation. It offers a medium coverage with room to build, has a sponge applicator that I apply right to skin and the product works really well with foundation sponges. With a primer, I find that this foundation lasts all day at work with no need to touch up. One thing I would change is the packaging so that I am able to get every last drop of product out, other than that, I think this foundation can easily contend with those 4x its price.
Date published: 2019-01-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This foundation changed my mind about drugstore foundations. For a long time I avoided trying drugstore foundations because I was almost always disappointed by them, but not this one! After hearing several great reviews, I decided to try it out. This foundation makes my skin look so smooth and amazing. It doesn’t break up on my skin or cling to dry patches. It does sink into lines over time, but it’s easy to buff out with the fingers throughout the day. I love the finish and wear time on this foundation. I also quite like the smell. This is a great affordable foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great This is a great foundation, and one of few that can improve skin over time! I love the medium coverage and the foot applicator. 5 classic swipes on the face, blend and good to go for daily coverage. I have some fine lines on my forehead and the foundation works well with these, it does not look dry, cakey, emphasizing the lines. This foundation dries a dewy finish, that I set with a fine dust of finishing powder. This foundation wears well, doesn't change color, or become heavy or greasy. I freaking love this and will use the whole bottle. The color is a nice match and blendable. This time I traded a custom color matched foundation for a skincare foundation at 1/3 of the price and am happy with the choice I made.
Date published: 2021-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I discovered this foundation about 2 months ago and I keep reaching for it on a daily basis! It is probably medium coverage at most, so I don’t wear it on days I want more coverage, but this melts into my skin and looks so natural it’s amazing for every day wear. Plus it has SPF also which I definitely care about! I wish it had a pump rather than a doe foot applicator, but it doesn’t bother me that much. The packaging is really pretty and it performs overall a lot better than many of the more expensive foundations I have tried. I will definitely keep this one on hand!
Date published: 2019-05-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from At first I didn’t love this product because my skin was so dry—absolutely nothing looked good on it. However, now that my skin is more healthy I love it. The reason I only gave 4 stars though is because it’s still not incredible. It oxidizes a little, has a strong scent and transfers/looks a bit oily by the end of the night. However, because of the natural finish it gives, I really don’t mind for now. It builds easily as well and blends wonderfully. It works well for me right now and though I’d liked to try other foundations after, I would still repurchase this later.
Date published: 2019-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. The packaging is high-end with a fancy glass bottle and large doe foot applicator (ala Tarte Shape Tape). I wasn't sure how to use the applicator. Is it more hygienic to put the product directly on the face or on a makeup sponge? I think I tried both methods; the results were the same. The coverage was very buildable and covered all my imperfections. I used an initial layer then built up around my problem areas. The foundation didn't settle in my fine lines. It didn't oxidize. Wear time was on par with all the other foundations I've used.

Does this foundation help very dry sensitive acne prone skin without making it cakey?

Asked by: Aliya
I have dry sensitive skin but it's not acne prone so I don't know if it is suited to your needs but I like the look of this foundation on me and it's not cakey looking. Everyone, I know, says they like how nice it makes me look. I do have some wrinkles and it seems to hide them nicely without looking heavy. Hope this helps. I am 75 and have been using this foundation for several years now.

I want to know what color I should order. I wear bear minerals rescue foundation in wheat 4.5

Asked by: Donna
I have also used the Wheat 4.5 from Bare Minerals and I wear either the LN4 or MN3 in the Physician's Formula Healthy Foundation. I find LN4 is sometimes too light so I mix the two together or use the foundation adjusting drops to get a closer match; hope this helps.
