2014 just passed by, what a lovely year it was indeed a special one for me as I started with many new ventures, one very special being my journey of writing for IMBB. My mission for achieving soft and beautiful hands is still on and the hunt for finding a suitable hand cream is at its peak….during this journey, I have come across some really beautiful brands that all of you will surely find interesting. Today I am introducing all of you to the brand Natio . The product I will be reviewing today is Natio’s wellness hand cream with SPF 15. Let’s start with the review.
Natio is Latin for “creation”, “birth”, “birthplace” and the ancient name for the Goddess of Nature. It symbolises the pure and natural, plant-based origins of Natio’s range.
Natio has evolved from an Australian family business that has been manufacturing skin care and cosmetics for national and international brands over four generations during the past 75 years. In 1993, Max and Vivienne Ross launched Natio’s beauty care range and the colour range followed three years later. Max and Vivienne both retain hands-on positions within the company.
Natio’s founders enjoy the rewarding experience of self-discovery through yoga and meditation and wish to share this experience through the Natio products and philosophy. The Natio range is continually developing with a very clear objective in mind – to deliver plant based, simple and gentle beauty treatments that are flexible and fit comfortably within today’s diverse lifestyles.
Price: 600 INR for 100 ml
Packaging: Plastic tube with screw cap lid.
The key to youthful, graceful hands. Antioxidant Pomegranate with sun filters to protect against damaging UVA/UVB rays. Extra rich. For all day hydration.
My take on the Natio Wellness Hand Cream SPF 15 :
I came across this brand when I was gifted a body lotion from this brand by one of my Australian friends long time ago. Recently during shopping, I again met this brand at their store located at Inorbit mall so I picked this hand cream for its SPF protection claim.
This hand cream has really impressed me to certain extent. Let’s talk about its packaging; the hand cream comes in a orange-white plastic tube with transparent plastic screw cap. The consistency of this cream is very very thin, it drips down when you open the cap and hold it vertically with it’s mouth facing downwards…..without applying any pressure. The tube is quite big it’s not that travel friendly, also the screw cap and the thin consistency of the hand cream makes the handling part a bit messy. Overall, the packaging part is strictly okay….The hand cream as I mentioned is quite thin,runny and is white in colour. The cream is sweetly fragrant and is not at all over powering.
The hand cream is very nourishing, once applied it superbly vanishes and gets quickly absorbed. It doesn’t leave any oily or greasy feeling on my hands, I can immediately work on my lappy or my cell phone; because it doesn’t stain any of the surfaces. Also the nourishment and softness provided by this hand cream remains for really long time, to say for 5-7 hours. That’s pretty cool. The loveliest part: the aroma of this cream is retained for the entire 5 hour span. The aroma is fruity, sweet and is pleasant smelling.However, when I wash my hands they tend to become a bit dry, but still there is some softness; I have super dry hands so I feel the need to reapply it. But on the whole it gives a really soft and supple feeling to my hands along with pleasantly smelling hands for good long time. This hand cream is ideal for both winters as well as summers, but for extreme winters this may not work that good. A thumb’s up for this hand cream’s overall performance. I am happy with the way its has softened my hands and repaired them to a certain extent.

Cons of Natio Wellness Hand Cream SPF 15 :
