Natio is a plant-based beauty care company based in Australia. They are now available in India through various online shopping websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa etc. They also have a website for India – http://my.natio.com/in/. I came across this brand in 2014 in South Korea at the Olive Young stores. The simple elegant white packaging grabbed my attention and decided to give them a go (yes based on the packaging). I picked up the Natio Hydrating mask which came with a deluxe size sample (20 ml) of the Natio Antioxidant Face Moisturizer. I have been using these products on and off for the past few weeks. Today I am reviewing the Natio Antioxidant Face Moisturizer!

Natio Antioxidant Face Moisturizer comes in a white plastic tub with black print. Natio have a very elegant and simple packaging of all their products and this one is no exception. I used the deluxe size sample in a plastic squeeze tube. The moisturizer is white in color and has a faint citrus scent (resembles the tangerine peel scent) in addition to a herb type scent.
The moisturizer has a creamy consistency and a silicone-feel (contains Dimethicone). It absorbs fast in the skin and very little of it is sufficient for the whole face and neck. The smell lingers for a short while and the effect of the moisturizer lasts all day. I really enjoyed using this moisturizer during the day under sunscreen. I think this moisturizer is a bit light for very dry skin but it will work for all the other skin types.
There is one thing that bugged me though. On Amazon, I saw that this product claims to be free of parabens but the tube has Methylparaben listed in the ingredient list.
Overall I am happy with how this moisturizer worked for me. I will definitely consider repurchasing this product despite its slightly higher price tag. I would recommend this to people of all skin types who are looking for a fast-absorbing, non-sticky and plant-based face moisturizer!
