ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a dewy, luminous complexion with full coverage. Organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a deep moisturising effect that nourishes dry skin, as well as organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol. This foundation has a semi-matt finish and uniform coverage to facilitate a long lasting coverage throughout the day.
Packaged in a glass bottle with bamboo lid and featuring an easy-to-use pump dispenser, the product is attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, making ZAO makeup both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
Instructions for use: Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge, sold separately. You can also apply with fingers.
ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone on face and neck without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the telltale 'tidemark' effect on the neck area. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside of your face,blending into the neck area.

I have super sensitive skin and also suffer from queratosis pilaris. If makeup is too much my skin will have an itchy sensation, this product was great, super delicate. Hopefully new shades can be made soon, for summer the colour was great but in winter my skin is too light for the original shade but to dark for the others.
This is so creamy and lite feels like I’m wearing nothing
My skin has never looked better, goes on so well and gives such good coverage without being obvious that you are wearing foundation. My skin is very dry but also oily in patches and I find that this foundation is very hydrating without making the oily patches even shinier. Wouldn’t use any other foundation now. Also handy that you can send away for samples and try out a few different shades before committing to a full size one.
Having hyper sensitive skin and being aware of what I put into and onto my body I have searched high and low for a non irritant foundation. Mine reacts let alone to all the big make up brands to even so called natural products like coconut oil and rose hip. (Most tend to be rancid I have now learnt!) Having clear skin but some redness I wanted even skin tone with some colour. I have brought several different shades and I mix two of them at the moment. It lasts / it hydrates / it doesn’t flake/ it doesn’t sit on my skin/ it’s the most unobvious foundation out there- it’s a miracle! I feel so confident wearing it. I found the customer service to be exceptional and very sincere. Little tip I was using a blender sponge but found my fingers create a better finish.
Beautiful - I applied with a brush and the finish is medium with no sinking or patchy areas later on.
Thanks for samples,they are so helpful. This shade is dark for me,so I am glad I have only sample. I am pale with freckles and I would need a bit lighter one. Texture is nice and blends well in to skin,just coverage is not enough. This would be great choice for young girl with young skin, but for my mature skin it's not enough. My freckles are still visible too. I prefer compact foundation for older skin ,which I tried from Zao and has better coverage.
I have tried every organic brand going on my hyper sensitive skin. This gives equally as good a coverage as giorgio armani foundation ( which is excellent but full of chemicals and gives me spots!) I brought 2 shades and have been mixing them for my ideal colour...even the samples are super generous and gave me a great idea of which full sizes to buy. This goes on easily it doesn't dry my skin out it lasts and it covers my redness.
Very nice smooth and silky consistency, easy to remove as all natural ingredients. Love the packaging and the fact that the pump does allow you to take out as much product as you need.
