Paula's Review: The concept behind this no-makeup makeup is to showcase healthy skin with pure, translucent coverage. This sheer liquid foundation is available in one shade, and I couldn’t help but think the tint was simply to offset the white cast from the high concentration of mineral active ingredients it contains. The sunscreen is great and this feels surprisingly light and practically blends itself. The formula even contains an impressive amount of stabilized vitamin C. Perricone added several other intriguing ingredients, too, but they’re listed after the preservative and don’t count for much.
What keeps this foundation from earning a higher rating is the inclusion of several fragrant oils. They’re not present in large amounts, but they certainly aren’t something to put in the “pro” column for this pricy foundation. Two more comments: There is too little glycolic acid for it to function effectively as an exfoliant and the product’s pH is too high for exfoliation to occur.

Perricone includes a drug ingredient (Teprenone) off-label in this product. Teprenone is the brand name for a drug known as geranylgeranylacetone, which is used to treat gastric ulcers and is being researched as an option for slowing age-related hearing loss (Sources: Brain Research, May 2008, pages 9–17; and Digestion, October 2007, pages 215–224). What do hearing loss and ulcers have to do with aging skin? One of the key ways geranylgeranylacetone works is by influencing heat shock proteins. These proteins help other proteins interact as they should at the cellular level, which affects many systems in the body. Heat shock proteins are most active during times of stress, such as exposure to cigarette smoke and exposure to sunlight. When heat shock proteins are reduced (which ultimately is what you want because that means reducing inflammation), cells appear to live longer. Perhaps Perricone theorized that geranylgeranylacetone (as Teprenone) may also have a helpful effect when applied topically. After all, the skin is a source of heat shock proteins, and it is certainly exposed to enough stressful situations that an ingredient that can help these proteins function more efficiently would be a benefit.
However, there’s no research proving that topically applied geranylgeranylacetone has any effect on heat shock proteins within skin. Moreover, as previously mentioned, Perricone is using a drug ingredient in a cosmetic product, which means the consumer is the guinea pig. I’d consider this with caution, if at all.
