Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is currently my go-to! I am a high-end foundation girl and this beats out everything else on my vanity. I hardly ever repurchase the same foundation again and I already got another bottle. It’s hydrating and long wearing with a natural satin finish that is medium-full coverage and feels light weight. It leaves a beautiful glowy and skin like finish. Honestly I would say this is almost a perfect product. The only thing I dislike is the smell... It has that typical Physicians Formula scent (you’ll know what I mean if you’ve used their products before.) I wish they would figure out how to make things unscented. However, I am more than willing to look past the smell because of just how great this foundation truly is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Impressed this foundation I just bought this and altho I like the consistency and how it looks, there are a few drawbacks and I will not be purchasing this again . First of all , I was shocked to see a sponge stick to apply and so therefore re-entering the bottle continually could easily contaminate it... what were they thinking , put it in a pump ! Also, I do not like the sunscreens used .. hormone and environmental disrupters.. I think the formula could have been much safer . Not a fan .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So, I’ve seen some beauty influencers rave about this and my local Ulta was having a sale so I thought, why not for $8.99!? and OMG OMG I LOVE IT. I have about 6 different foundations in my collection (Charlotte Tilbury, Too Faced, Hourglass, Lancôme, Dior...) and I’m shook by this super affordable foundation! I can’t believe how NATURAL and bright it made my skin look. It really does look “healthy”. It has hydrolaunic acid in it and SPF. The coverage is more light to medium but so flawless, buildable, and natural. I can’t say enough about it! FYI - I’m in shade LC3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I decided to try this foundation after I couldn't find the Covergirl Healthy Skin Elixir online at Ulta. I wanted to try a foundation with skincare ingredients in it and see how I liked it. This foundation was a pretty good match for my skin color and I really like that it includes an applicator too, The packaging was pretty heavy duty too. The coverage is definitely light but can be built up to a medium coverage. I have combo, sensitive skin and this didn't irritate my skin at all and I honestly think that it has helped improve my skin since using it. It lasts really well throughout the day and the finish is so beautiful. I kind of wish it was more full coverage but I still plan on buying this again for day to day use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall it was OK Overall it was OK but I have a lot of acne scarring and it felt really good on my face it wasn’t like a very heavy cakey feeling the only problem that I had with it and I find it a water foundation is it goes into my acne scars and you can see that it’s going into my scarring so I’d be nice to find the full coverage foundation that kind of levels everything out of my face instead of going deep in my scars from my acne otherwise it was a good product like I said it didn’t feel heavy I felt like my skin can breathe and just didn’t like how it sat in my acne scars

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So I sort of have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. The pros-I really love the way this foundation looks on me. It gives me such a beautiful radiant finish! The coverage is great too!! It is long lasting and the shade matches me perfect! And it's a very affordable medium to full coverage foundation! The cons- the packaging. Personally, I dont like it. It's very heavy and bulky. Also, I dont like foundation that have this type of applicator. The stick applicator with a doe foot tip. As far as the formula of the foundation. It feels very heavy and uncomfortable on my skin. I feel like it just sits on top of my skin and could be peeled off. I do feel that this foundation could be a really good fit for some people.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AMAZING but SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE I love this foundation it is amazing and nothing has matched my skin so perfectly and gave it a natural look even though I have many acne scars. I have VERY sensitive skin and this was the only foundation that didn't swell up my face to the max like others. I discovered this product so late that it is not to be found anywhere, being the one of the most devastating and frustrating things ever !! Hopefully this product is going to be back on the shelves soon so my two sisters and I can stalk up on this amazing foundation!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!! I’ve spent so much money on high end foundations and I always use it up sooo fast. It just didn’t make sense for me to spend so much on something I use up so fast so I decided to experiment with drugstore foundations. I usually like matte foundations so when I heard that this was a “healthy” foundation... it screamed glowy and oily looking to me. But I am so glad I decided to give this a try. Nowadays, I’m not into the matte formula as much and this foundation gives a satin finish which is what I prefer!! It’s such a nice formula that gives your skin a healthy glow without looking too glowy. The only thing I don’t like is the applicator.. I wish it was a pump instead of a doe foot. 10/10 recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my days guys! This foundation is THEE best drugstore brand I’ve tried for my severely dried skin. It’s beautifully blendable and buildable. Love the glass bottle and surprisingly I have even loved the foot applicator more than I thought I would. I use a beauty sponge with this but fingers have worked wonders too. It’s very versatile and I’ve used other brand concealers overtop of this with no problem. I’m almost loving it more than my makeup forever HD foundation! The price is right on this. Affordable without compromising quality. I’d say give it a try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from although higher priced than most drugstore foundations, this foundation is definitely worth every penny. i use shade LC1. it lives up to the “healthy foundation” title and makes your skin look bright, smooth, and overall healthy! it contains vitamins and antioxidants and is infused with sodium salts to brighten, hydrate, and even your skin tone. i’ve found it is a more full coverage foundation but feels very light on the skin. it covers most skin imperfections but i’ve found it struggles to hide my redness around my breakouts but is easily fixed with a redness controlling primer underneath and some spot concealing. also contains SPF 20 so perfect for sunny days outside! 1 fluid oz, spf 20, all skin types, medium to full coverage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have a shade I have a shade of this in MN3 and DN2 for my tan summer shade. This foundation definitely oxidizes but it leaves an amazing finish. Most people don’t like how fragranced this is but personally I love the smell. The applicator definitely lends to applying the desired amount. I always mix this with other foundations to get the best makeup base. If you are medium to deep in foundation shades wait until winter to buy foundation because most of the shades we can use go on sale during those months!The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 - DW2 Got this for 8$ at Target.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medium coverage buildable to full Beautiful medium coverage. I don't wear all over, just on nose and spots. Scent dissipates after a few seconds. Wish it were a pump dispenser and had more shades. Use with beauty sponge and it's perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring This Back! This is the best foundation, healthy, matte & light...your other foundations are not especially for those of us with oily/combo skin. For a year now I've been paying more to third party sellers to buy this because you discontinued it. Everywhere I see complaints and vids on Youtube that your new foundations don't work well for oily skin. We don't all want dewy. Please listen to your customers or you will continue to lose our money.
Date published: 2021-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite drugstore foundations. It’s got a really nice dewy-ish finish. It doesn’t take a whole lot of product to get pretty nice coverage. I would say it’s a medium coverage foundation. I like the applicator a lot. I’m able to control the amount of product that comes out rather than pumping out a ton & having leftover. This shade is perfect for my skin tone. This wears really nicely, I would say it’s got about an 7-8 hour wear. If I wear my makeup for longer than that, it doesn’t seem to last on the face. But that’s pretty good in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was needing a foundation as soon as possible because the one I had been previously using was causing my face to break out like crazy. This one stood out to me because the packaging is very nice, the shade fits my skin perfectly, and I really like the wand applicator. It is a very buildable foundation but one layer is all I need for my skin. This foundation sits beautifully on the skin, doesn’t cling to dry or problem areas, and doesn’t cause my skin to break out. I am very impressed with this foundation and don’t plan on switching it anytime soon.
Date published: 2018-05-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm really, really enjoy this foundation. I feel like it allows my skin to breathe. I apply it with a brush and it goes on easily. It isn't full coverage, while it may cover redness or light discoloration it's not covering moles or dark beauty marks. I do not like the initial scent, almost like a paint smell. And the color range is limited. Though they say some shades are warm while others are neutral- they all appear cool & neutral. The darker shades are not that deep and they are also cool tones. No tan warmth here. I warm mine up with custom drops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why, Why, Why Is It Discontinued? Best foundation ever and love the applicator. I don't understand why it was discontinued when all the reviews everywhere say how great it is (because it is!)....please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s my everyday when I’m not using BTW. I love how satin like it is on the skin. It looks natural; skin like. It don’t feel heavy and wears amazing even after a long work day. The bottle is glass, heavy, and very high end feeling. It’s a thick formula and has no pump which is the only con. Even though it has a doefoot applicator I don’t like having it touch my skin then dripping back into the bottle. I bought airless pumps on amazon and transferred it into that. I feel it it’s more sanitary and would last longer that way. GREAT DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation is great, I just learned how to do my makeup a few months ago, and this is the first foundation that I've found that fully matches my skin tone. The smell is a little weird, at first just giving it a smell at the store I absolutely loved it but when I started putting it on my face the smell was just to much but give it a min and it will go away I did get a small headache from the smell but once I got used to it my headache went away. Other than that I absolutely love it, it matches and the texture is great. I recommend this foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This WAS my absolute favorite foundation! (Until sadly it was discontinued). I'm so disappointed in PF for getting rid of this product, it has made me loose trust in them. However heres what I have to say about the foundation. It gives medium buildable coverage and has a velvety natural looking beautiful finish. Nearly all foundations I've tried in the past and up looking powder and cakey especially in the t-zone and they all seem to quickly settle into the fine lines on my forehead. But this foundation just looks like skin but better. I'm in love ❤

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAVORITE FOUNDATION! I am FAVORITE FOUNDATION! I am not rich and I don't have the money to spend 30-40 dollars on foundation. When I was looking for a staple makeup product I came across this foundation. I have now been using this foundation for a year and I highly recommend. It is nice and natural and gives lots of coverage. I also sometimes hate the smell of foundation depending on the brand and this does not smell bad in any way. The applicator given as part of the lid is so easy and helps be less stain and mess free. Highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satin finish that I love, despite the fact that I usually gravitate toward matte finish. I use concealer underneath, then apply this with a front facing foundation brush. I use setting powder to mattify & lengthen wear time. This product plays well with all those others, & is so easy to blend. They need some lighter shades tho. It's something I have to use lighter setting powder on to get closer to a match. I'm sure there are probably gaps in the shade range for other skin tones, too. But if you can find a match for yourself, it's a great product.
Date published: 2019-06-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s not the worst but not the best and I don’t think that’s the best way to start a review. One of the biggest issues to me like many others is that dang applicator, not enough product comes out at once and the fact that it isn’t sanitary just doesn’t work for me. It also really makes me look too pale and the color range is HORRIBLE! My favorite thing about this foundation is that it isn’t Matt nor dying and it feels very light but it’s not the cheapest at least I paid $14 for mine and well I can get an $8 foundation that’s better in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation is gorgeous! I have a super oily t-zone and really dry cheeks and forehead. Finding a foundation in the perfect shade that doesn’t emphasize texture, cling to dry patches, slip and slide all over my face, and looks nice on my nose was next to impossible. I took a chance on this foundation and I’m not sure I will reach for anything else! It’s so beautiful on the skin and is super lightweight. Also, the coverage builds so easily and doesn’t look cakey at all! It is a little pricey for drugstore, but is a little cheaper on Amazon!
Date published: 2019-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation is the beauty industries best kept secret, in my opinion. I have tried a wide variety of foundations over the last decade (in all price ranges) and this is my absolute holy grail. It is easy to apply, with either brush or fingertips, and leaves a soft, dewy finish. I have dry skin and so many other foundations accentuate any texture or flakiness issues. Not this one! If you're on the hunt for a great foundation, then I highly encourage you to try this out! And for the price, you really have nothing to lose. Bonus- SPF included!
Date published: 2019-04-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far this is one of my top drugstore foundations! I do realize their shade range is terrible and I lucked out by choosing one that matched my skin, but I can't deny that I love the finish to this foundation. It truly gives your skin that healthy glow, almost like a "your skin but better" type of product. I definitely value the spf and non-harmful ingredients that they use. I personally have no complaints but I had to dock a star because I believe that shade range and making a product useable for all is of the upmost importance in cosmetics !

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.

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.
