Non-comedogenic, anti-aging foundation / 1 oz
37 Actives Treatment Foundation was created by Dr. Macrene Alexiades, a prominent New York dermatologist, to address a clear need she saw in her dermatology practice: many of her breakout-prone patients wanted to wear concealer or foundation, but their makeup was often making their acne worse. So she created this dual-duty, non-comedogenic product to even out skin tone while at the same time fighting aging and acne with more than 30 active ingredients, including a suite of peptides to address fine lines and wrinkles; amino acids to address hyperpigmentation; squalane and sunflower to moisturize and maintain a healthy skin barrier; and marine extracts for additional protection against aging. It can be used as a concealer or as a lightweight, full coverage foundation. Importantly, it’s free of mica and talc, two ingredients that Dr. Macrene often finds linked to breakouts.
Our local makeup artist, Melissa McMillan, tested it for us for a few months and loved how it performed on her own oily, acne-prone skin: “It has a beautiful velvety finish and good coverage that builds very well. This would be a perfect foundation for anyone oily, and it wears well throughout the day.” We realize there's a little sticker shock involved with this product (though we promise that every spendy product we carry is worth every penny). If you want to give it a try first, or you're not sure which shade would suit you, order a sample through our Custom Sample Service.
Our shade selection advice:
The Light shade is extra light and a good match for porcelain complexions with a pink undertone (it tends not to match as well for those with yellow undertones). The Medium shade is versatile and will suit most fair to light tan skin tones. The Dark shade is ideal for tan to dark skin tones.
How to Use
- Squalane, Sunflower, and Sandalwood Extracts help protect skin’s barrier.
