A96809 - Dr. Denese Pro C Illuminating Foundation SPF 50
I am very pleased with this product. I look very natural (no makeup look) and it gives my skin the luminousity that I need. I love Dr Denese's products. I believe in her products 100%.
I was excited to try this foundation because of the spf 50, and because it's made by Dr. Denese. I have loved every product I have tried of hers so I had high hopes for this foundation. I applied it, and there was very little coverage. I would call this more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. I would have kept it if the color looked better on me. It was a little on the orange side (I got the medium) and just didn't look good on me. I actually had to wash my face and re-apply my make-up because it looked so bad. I gave it two stars because of the spf 50 and simply because I love Dr. Denese. :)
PLEASE NEVER GET RID OF THIS PRODUCT OR CHANGE IT. This foundation is excellent. It evens out skin tone and provides a light to medium coverage. I like to put this on and then dust a little of IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation over it for extra protection and extra good stuff for my skin. Thanks Dr. Denese !
This is a very nice product for young and middle age women. Because I am 69 years old it was a nice foundation and had no effect on my lines and wrinkles.
Sorry Dr Dense but this left me orange. I ordered the light for my fair skin and hated the result. I tried it twice just in case it was the way I applied. I challenge you to use the light on your fair skin. I don't think you will like it either. I love your other products, so I'll give your adjusting moisturizer a try instead.
The Firming & Retexturizing Foundation was better
I love the SPF 50 and it's important in a foundation, but this product just does not provide the same coverage and flawless look that the Firming and Retexturizing Foundation did. That product seems to have been discontinued - even though it had incredible reviews. I'm so disappointed. I don't understand why you could not add the desirable SPF component to the other product. The Chemistry cannot be that difficult to perfect.
If you want a lovely radiant finish with unbelievable protection then this should be your choice. A little goes a long way but the only thing is I would like a lighter color like fair. If I put too much on it becomes way to dark. Truly love this great product, thank you Dr. Dense.
I give this 5 stars because I know this is a amazing product, but it doesn't work for all of my face, only my forehead. I prefer the spf 30 day cream for the remainder of my face (but I LOVE the spf 50 idea). I'm a stay at home mom living in San Diego and am outside ALL the time year round with my young children. Anyways, I'm still going to work with this spf 50. Totally LOVE the eye emulsion. Just bought the TSV w/ face emulsion and hoping the spf 50 will work well with that. Love Dr. Denese products!
not for me
BRING BACK PERFECTION MAKEUP PLEASE. I WOULD HAVE USED THAT FOREVER. NOTHING COMPARES TO IT. THIS LEFT ME ORANGE AND SHINY, NOT ATTRACTIVE ON MY 52 YEAR OLD FACE. SORRY DR DENESE BUT WILL HAVE TO FIND NEW PROVIDER FOR FOUNDATION
Good ingredients but...
not enough coverage. Dr. Denese's firming and texturing foundation provided so much more coverage and rendered a flawless result. The illuminating foundation does everything but provide the same type of coverage most women want, and for that reason alone, I have had to return the product. Perhaps Dr. Denese can improve this product in the future to provide the same amount of coverage as her firming and texturing foundation does, which I might add is no longer available on QVC. :(
Light color is too dark
I like everything about this except the light color is too dark and too yellow. My skin tone is fair but not porcelain and it has pink undertones. This is too yellow for me. Please make a light without the yellow and it would be perfect.
Lightweight and Fresh
If you're looking for full coverage, then this foundation is probably not for you. If you are looking for something to even out skintone, cover minor imperfections all the while giving your face a nice, healthy glow without looking or feeling greasy, then give this one a try. I have made it my current favorite. The color (medium) matches well and I like the way ot makes my skin look and feel. I have used Mally and Tarte in the past but find they are a tad heavy. This ia a nice natural look for me, I'm glad I found it!
