Smooth as Silk

I really like this foundation as it goes on silky smooth and has a light, delicate finish. A little goes a long way too.

Sappho Foundation

Perfect shade for my skin, blends nicely with the foundation brush, and evens out my skin tone using a small amount. I have been using this product for a couple years and no longer have breakouts due to the natural ingredients. Love this product.


Sappho New Paradigm Essential Foundation

These products AMAZE me

I only needed to try this product once to fall in love with it. I feel so much more confident wearing make up now knowing it is healthy for my skin :) Thanks for your amazing products!!!

So good - hardly feel it

I don’t feel like I’m wearing foundation, yet it evens out my skin and conceals some of my old acne scars. The finish is great...and it helps with my shinny skin.
