All Bases Covered Foundation SPF 25 has a light, creamy-smooth texture and is ideal for normal to dry skin. It has a soft matte finish and offers light to medium coverage with excellent blendability in neutral shades for light to medium/tan skin tones. It protects skin from sun damage with a pure titanium dioxide SPF 25 sunscreen.

Note:Although this foundation provides broad-spectrum sun protection on its own, you must apply it liberally and evenly to get the stated level of protection. A sheer or spot application will not provide the amount of sun protection the label indicates. If you’re not likely to apply this foundation liberally, we recommend applying it over a moisturizer with sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater and setting your foundation with a pressed powder rated SPF 15 or greater.

Light, creamy-smooth texture ideal for normal to dry skin. Long-wearing soft matte finish. Blends easily, providing light to medium coverage. Protects skin with a titanium dioxide SPF 25 sunscreen. 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Great travel option
    • On a daily basis, I use something else so I am not trapped by ordering. I tend to save this one for my long-outdoor days because of the high SPF. Just took my first carry-on flight in a while are was glad to have a plastic bottle for carryon. Long lasting foundation with a light to medium coverage. Will always have some around.

    Surprisingly great
    • After using accutane for my cystic acne I needed a gentle foundation that did not look oily but had some moisture. This fits the bill perfect. I use "nude". It gives me just the right amount of coverage and blends perfectly. I use Paula's Choice pressed powder and I am good to go. The combination wears all day with no touch up. Before this I used Best Face Forward SPF 25 and it was equally amazing:)

    Needs a Good Primer Underneath
    • I have dry skin, but when I first used this a year ago, I found it that it made my skin look oily as the day progressed. I started using it again with L'Oreal's Revitalift Miracle Blur primer and it now wears beautifully! It covers beautifully without looking heavy and the Miracle Blur keeps the satin finish all day - no more oiliness.
