I like this moisturizer for the winter. For the summer I prefer something lighter. It sits well under makeup. Usually I just use this in the mornings.
Omg I thought this was ok when I first bought it- it seemed nice and light and sank into my skin. But three days in I broke out in these tiny red bumps all along my chin and around my nose that were really itchy! ive remedied it with some avene restorative cream and its getting better, but my god I would not recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin. Im sticking with cetaphil.
Fantastic product. I have been using Cetaphil, Neutrogena, Loreal, Clearasil and this one is my fave so far! Goes on smoothly, absorbs straight away, no shines, no streaks. It is perfect for summer, and goes well with tinted moisturiser or foundation.
The texture is clumpy but runny and I get the impression that this is a really cheap, poorly made product. It is nothing compared to the other Natio products I enjoyed.
Absorbs quickly but not at all moisturizing nor does it seem to assist with my acne-prone skin or oil control at all.
It is, by in large, a very simple but poor moisturizer and a very big disappointment.
Fortunately, it does not irritate my skin when it is more sensitive from acne, but it doesn't do much else either. Sometimes I felt it left a sort of icky residual film over the surface of my skin - like it hadn't fully or properly absorbed into my skin but instead, had dried on top and formed a barrier.
The smell is, as others have mentioned, unpleasant.
STRONG SMELL , MAKE MY FACE SHINEY AFTER USE. DO NOT CONTROL OIL.
Ughhh I hated this product! Like a reviewer before, I also have quite sensitive skin with some very dry patches. I bought the entire set: cleanser toner and moisturiser, and didn't like any of them! I've never disliked a facial product so much. I even ended up giving the entire set to my friend after only using it once or twice. I didn't like the smell much because it was quite strong. I didn't like this moisturiser because I felt like it sat on my skin and made like a layer over it that never disappeared. It irritated my skin so much and so immediately, like the next day I woke up and there were these tiny white mini-pimple like bumps (whiteheads? Is that what they're called) alllll over my face! I waited about 2 weeks for them to completely disappear and tried it again, and they popped out again so its definitely this doing it. It's such a shame that I couldn't like this because there's so many good reviews about it :( it costs quite a lot here in NZ as well... like $15? Still on the hunt for something that works.
I love, love, love this product! This started me on my natio obsession. It has a fresh smell, a floral-citrus-herb smell; yet nothing overpowering. Blends in nicely and is light yet moisturising. Doesn't absorb straight away, but when it does it's not oily at all. I use it with the cleanser, scrub and toner from the same 'young' line and i love it. Beautiful packaging and meets standards for airline carry on. It's also fairly natural and won't break the bank at only about $10AU
I'm currently using this moisturizer and equivalent toner with Benzac (benzoyl peroxide based products) wash and treatment cream. Benzac can be quite drying and I find this moisturizer really helps to hydrate without breaking me out. It is a little heavy on the skin, in spite of the fact that it is oil free but it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a residue that will affect the application of make-up. Other than Proactiv and Benzac, Natio's Young line is the only one that helped my skin.
I picked it up by accident. I wanted to buy scrub but grabbed it instead because the packaging looked so similar. I have normal skin but prefer oil-free moisturisers because they don't interact with my foundation.
This moisturiser has light texture and very nice fresh scent. It only costs $10 and you get a huge 100ml tube. It soaks into my skin quickly and doesn't feel greasy.
I've tried few cheap moisturises but wasn't happy with them. For the past few years I've been buying $80+ moisturisers from Clarins, Lancome and Estee Lauder. I'm so happy I found this one by accident! It will save me lots of $$$
i went bonkers the other day and bought 7 new moisturisers because i thought the current one i am using is the reason why i am breaking out in pimples.
i like this one the best out of all of them. i get dry patches around my nose and mouth and this moisturiser does the trick for it! i get an oily forehead too if i dont use an 'oil free' moisturiser; i still get an oily forehead with this one but it isnt bad. i would probablyl say it doesnt help with oil much?
i do like the way that it is quickly absorbed, though im not too happy with the smell; kinda smells like a garden or like, herbs.
packagins is good, easy to use bottle with a flip top though i like pumps better; and i noticed a little goes a long way with this product. i also like the feeling it gives my face; it isnt mattifying and is great under make up (i dont need to use a primer with this one!)
i like it alot, i will be purchasing it again
