Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Powder Nice finish. Wears well. Not cakey or heavy. Keeps me matte.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t stop making this Best for my middle aged, ruddy, sensitive skin! Doesn’t look cakey, can be layered, and helps protect from the sun. Ln3 is what I tried. I may try one shade lighter next winter. Love it! Please keep making it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This has great & buildable coverage, does not feel heavy or look caked on the skin and has a nice satin finish. The look of it is comparable to bare minerals foundation. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because, for a pressed powder, the fallout is insane! It is a total mess and gets everywhere! Once your brush hits the pan it’s almost like it turns into a loose powder. I’ve never seen a pressed powder of any quality do anything like that. Once it gets on the skin it looks great but getting it on your skin is a disaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve tried liquid and matte foundations and I don’t like the effect that they have on my face. Physicians formula luckily had a sale and I got the opportunity to purchase this powder foundation. I instantly fell in love with the amount of coverage that it had on my face. It was also easy to find my color which is also a problem that I have when I shop for make up. I love that it doesn’t make my face look caked or like I put a pantyhose over my face. It gives me the natural look I need for the days I look and feel crappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful powder! I have this in the shade LN3 which is a perfect companion to my LN4 liquid foundation! I have only used this to set my foundation, but it works extremely well and is the perfect partner to the physicians formula healthy foundation liquid! It didn’t exaggerate dryness or make me look too mattified. It did help my makeup last longer though because if I had one complaint about the liquid it would be the staying power... this powder helps it dramatically! They are a match made in heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRING BACK THE HEALTHY POWDER! This powder foundation is fabulous. Gives a smooth, silky, matte coverage that isn't cakey and doesn't separate. Bonus it doesn't break out my skin. Please bring back this product it's the best powder foundation Physician Formula has ever made and you discontinue it! Doesn't make sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color corrector At my age I have treated many face powders. Finding the right skin color is not easy. My skin color is not brown, it is not white, I could say caramel. I hated using powders that don't match my neck. Now I found this MN3 reference product and I can say that for the first time in my life I feel completely satisfied with the skin color. With the molten and the dust my face looks the right color. I just feel sad because I want to buy it again but there isn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this powder! It looks so natural on the skin. It controls my oils and makes me look flawless. I use this everyday over drunk elephant d-bronzi mixed into my moisturizer. I also use it with a full face to set my undereyes and oily areas and it looks amazing. No flashback in photos and leaves your undereyes flawless! Love this powder! Also, never causes breakouts and I have breakout prone skin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have purchased this Potter with the matching foundation to test together. I can’t say I love it but I also don’t hate it. The packaging is nothing special but has a mirror. It has a good amount of fall out which I don’t love because it messes up my clothes when I apply my make up. But it does give a good coverage and nice natural finish to the skin. But I doubt it I will re-purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really loved this product from physicians formula. I am very familiar with their products and they consistently put out products that I love. This powder is lightweight, medium coverage, and lasts all day! It mattifies the skin, but leaves it looking healthy. I apply it with a mineral powder brush from Jane Iredale. Highly recommend this for a quick, flawless makeup base!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this because I had such success with PF’s Healthy Foundation, but I didn’t enjoy this pressed powder as much. The powder kind of settles into my fine lines and pores, making my face slightly cakey looking. I appreciate the SPF in the powder though. I intend to finish using this (it’s been better than other powders I’ve used) but I’ll still be on the hunt for my HG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good pressed powder! It has good coverage and blends into your skin nicely. You can make the coverage lighter or darker depending on if you use a brush or sponge to apply. I used to use Clinique pressed powder, but use this now because of a better price and a decent amount of comparability. Love that it has the SPF in it in case you are in a hurry with no time to apply a lotion. Thanks PF!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoy this powder. It is light weight, finely milled and sets my face and undereyes without looking dry or cakey. It lasts well, even in hot, humid weather. It has been a good powder for my dry skin, as it doesn't cling to dryness and it looks natural and not overly matte. The shade range could use some work, but otherwise, I enjoy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I’ve really been enjoying this powder to set my liquid foundation and under eye concealer! My skin is normal to dry, 30s. It doesn’t feel dry at all, its comfortable and provides a slightly luminous healthy look to the skin. One thing that slightly bothers me is there’s a lot of powder kick up when I dip in my Real Techniques setting brush to use on my undereye, but then I carefully pick up the fall out on my Elf large complexion brush to use on the rest of my face. I got the shade LN3 at Target on clearance after wanting to try this powder for over a year. I’m definitely happy with it! I have been noticing a bit of texture in the form of small pimples on my forehead, and I don’t think it’s the powder since no one else mentioned breakouts in their review...but it is possible. I like the powder and hope PF will rerelease it in packaging without the bottom sponge. LN3 is sheer enough to work on my fair pale skin and my light medium self tanned shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this powder as a setting powder, and it it able to keep my undereyes creasless and matte all day long! it also doesn't irritate my eyes, which makes me happy. It's easy to work with and not super super powder or pigmented which is great. for setting. It also doesn't make your face chalky which I find helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST POWDER EVER!! I’ve tried a TON of powders and foundations, and this is by FAR the best one! It beats all the expensive fancy powders (silky smooth finish, great color and coverage, long-lasting) and doesn’t cause me acne breakouts like most affordable products do... Please never discontinue the Healthy Powder!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I get so many compliments when using this powder I am so glad I tried!! It applies smoothly to your skin and it leaves your face looking so flawless! And hide your pores and fine lines and the perk of it is that it is healthy for your skin it allows it to breath and still look radiant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!!!! I've been looking for this color for months. Every time I would go to the site it was sold out. I couldn't find it at the store and I was certainly not going to use Amazon. So when I got my hands on it I ordered 2. I love love this product and will order more through PF website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like using this powder because it is lightweight giving me a natural look. This brand is affordable and I like it is not thick. It does not irritate my skin nor make my face breakout. I recommend for anyone for any skin type. I like everything that this brand comes out with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this brand and this powder didn’t disappoint. It’s lightweight and build able coverage. It doesn’t have a irritating smell or feel to the texture of the powder. The payoff is great and it really makes my skin look seamless and like I’m not even wearing makeup at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been testing this powder for a few weeks now and I like it for a powder from the drugstore! It is really pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I am not crazy about it though, I don't find it super extraordinary or anything, but it does the job and isn't too drying.
Date published: 2019-06-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please don't discontinue! I'm sad this powder is being discontinued :( I like it a lot and my shade is actually the palest one but i had to settle for the second palest shade. I guess I can't recommend this product because I don't want anyone to get hooked on this and be dissapointed like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I usually dont go for powder foundations because they end up looking dry and cakey and weird on my combo skin. However i tried this and loved it, it's great for quick 5 min & go look it's light not cakey or clingy and has just enough coverage to perfect my skin.
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s so good for a natural and healthy look, it’s priced a little too much for me, but this brand has the best drugstore products! I just love this brand and this powder! A must have , I broke my powder and it was too dark for me but This ones more of my shade!
Date published: 2020-05-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, I like the look and feel of this one. Unfortunately, i don’t love it for setting my undereyes because it sinks into my pores causing a weird look after a while. This doesn’t happen often to me. But for the reat of my face, I like using a little of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This powder does a good job at setting your makeup! It adds some addition coverage and colour which I like it leaves your skin with a natural finish however it’s a bit powdery! It is not a bad powder!! There are just better drugstore ones at a cheaper price.
Date published: 2020-06-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this powder! When I want a more natural look to my makeup this is the one I stick to. It’s light, but it gives the perfect amount of coverage. It doesn’t pack on thick, which I love and it lasts all day. I definitely recommend this product.
