Today’s review would be on Natio’s Aromatherapy Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser, which I have been meaning to review for quite sometime, but I am happy about the delay in a way because I am more certain about the product’s details than before. Read on to know how this cleanser did.
Price: INR 895 INR for 50 g/1.7 oz
Shelf Life: 3 years
A light and efficient soap free cleanser with a neutral pH to purify the skin while maintaining correct moisture balance. This extra low foaming cleanser avoids stripping skin of vital moisture with pure essential oils to help nourish and clarify.
Natio’s Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser uses a unique ‘micro foam’ to deeply cleanse pores, effectively removing excess surface oils, impurities and makeup without dehydrating the skin. It leaves skin feeling pure, relaxed and softly moist. Contains pure essential oils to help neutralise the drying effects of hard water. For all skin types.
Sandalwood helps to soften the skin. Shea Butter helps to maintain the skin’s correct moisture balance. Calendula and Jojoba help to soothe and moisturize. Rosewood helps to improve radiance. Lemon helps to purify and normalize sebum.
Directions to use:
Gently lather on moistened hands and massage onto damp face and neck, avoiding the eye contour area. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with your favourite Natio toner and moisturiser.
My Experience with Natio Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser:
Let me begin on a positive note stating that this cleanser overall is not a disappointing one. I am pleased about the fact that it is a gentle pleasant-smelling mild facial cleanser.
Packaging: This facial cleanser is the easiest to carry around for trips. You can add this lightweight bottle to your regular skin care routine if you are willing to pay for the price. Nothing is fancy about the packaging; the main advantage I see is that it is light to carry. The only problem you might face with this cleanser is that it is bound to get over in no time before you even realize it. The tube might get emptied sooner than you expect as the tube is opaque.
Consistency and texture: The consistency of this gel is like that of a shaving cream, which we would be all highly familiar with. Do not expect it produce generous amount of lather or foam even if you dispense generous amounts of it maybe because it claims to be soap-free. It cleanses in its own way without producing foam or lather and it feels light on the skin. This gentle citric scented cleanser feels creamy on the face. Also, it feels non-stretchy on the skin.
Usage and performance: Use it once a day before bed to leave your skin to breathe and with continuous usage, you are likely to experience to wake up to a not very oily skin with the moisture levels retained which is what happened with me at least even when I used it in cold weathers. I would ideally recommend you to moisturize your skin well after each use especially when you sense that you skin is lacking the usual levels of moisture. You need to keep your face well moisturized or it is likely to zap out all the oil from your skin and eventually, it might end up leaving your skin comparatively dry with continual usage. For very oily skinned beauties, it might work in their favor.
‘Faces Hydro Moisturizer’ in combination with this cleanser has worked well for me so far and I am done with the both the bottles. Maybe if you pair this with Natio’s toner and moisturizer, it might give you better results.
Pros of Natio Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser:
• Packaging – simple and sturdy.
• It has the consistency as that of a shaving cream which is light on the skin.
• Soothing fragrance that contains a punch of citric scent to it.
• Works best for oily/combination skin type.
• Not very harsh on the skin even in cold weather (except for dry to extremely dry skin).
• Contains plant extracts and shea butter that maintains the moisture levels of the skin.
• Can be used as a makeup remover.
• Great cleanser to use for summers or for hot/humid weather.
Cons of Natio Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser:
• Not suitable for dry skin type. Normal skin type beauties can avoid this cleanser during winters.
• Does not produce a lot foam or lather generously.
• Requires a lot of quantity of cleanser to deep-cleanse your skin.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Natio Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser?
No, I feel I cannot afford this cleanser for my daily skin care routine. I am done with the tube and I am glad the fragrance always made me feel good. If you can settle with the cons, go ahead and try it, otherwise you are not missing much.
