There are a few products which I love to use especially when I’m having breakouts from product testing (and menstrual, of course). Since I have a quite sensitive combination skin, thus, it’s important for me to carefully choose products that would not worsen my breakouts. Natio is one of my (and Mr. Hubby, too) favourite products. Natio is another Australian cruelty-free product with 100% pure essential oils and plant extracts.
I was first introduced to Natio product when I was looking for Mr. Hubby’s birthday gift at SASA outlet. This has been Mr. Hubby’s favourite skincare product as it does not leave his skin with taut feeling or oily.
What They Say
Light and non-greasy, Natio Young Oil Free Moisturiser absorbs easily for a skin-friendly, pure moisture boost. Softens as it hydrates, and absorbs rapidly. Perfect under make-up, as it is light, non-greasy and won’t clog pores. Contains rosehip to soothe soften and rejuvenate, mandarin to refresh, and antioxidant packed green tea. Suitable for oily and combination skin types.
It comes in a squeezable turquoise plastic tube with white flip-top lid. I admit I love its neat and simple packaging. It doesn’t have chemical scent, just fragrance-free. The product comes in a white cream, only half of the regular dime size to squeeze out which is enough for the whole face and neck. I usually apply this product after I cleansing and toning routine. One tube can last about two (2) months when using twice a day.
I don’t find it’s greasy at all but I disagree the fact that it says it is a ‘light moisturiser’ because the the cream has thick consistency. Although it has that creamy and thickness, I still find it does absorb quickly. It really blends into my skin leaving my skin with moisturised, and soft after each application. I believe it must be effect from Rosehip plant extract which helps to soothe and soften the skin.
This does not intend to heal the breakouts but rather give the skin with ample nutrients that it needs. It’s said to be made for combination to oily skin, but I feel this is suitable for normal, dry, oily (mild), and combination skin types. It’s not suitable for severe oily, or acne prone as it can tend to be very oily and lead to breakouts. I must say that this can be a great substitute for primer before applying your base make-up.
