It comes in an aqua coloured tube with a flip open cap. It is a bulky tube. Moisturizer is one of those essential things that you need to carry with yourself while travelling, so a bulky tube is not appreciated.
My Experience with Natio Young Oil Free Moisturiser:
To begin with, I have a normal to combination skin. Weather plays a very important part in determining my skin type. It is a white cream based product. I was taken aback seeing the cream form as mostly oil free products are gel based. It has a very mild, pleasant fragrance, which lingers around for 15 to 20 minutes.
I apply this product right after cleansing & toning my face. You need very little amount of this product. i.e. half of the regular dime size. The secret lies in its blendability. No matter how bumpy your skin is, it really glides on like magic. (Mine is a bumpy skin, just like our lovely roads 😀 ). It blends into my skin as if the moisturiser and my skin were made for each other, leaving behind the softest skin I’ve ever experienced! The secret to this softness is nothing but the rosehip plant extracts. Rosehip helps to soothe & soften one’s skin. My skin feels soft and moisturised for good 6 to 7 hours.
The cream gets absorbed real quickly into the skin. This moisturizer doesn’t weigh down your skin. It is almost like you were born with a hydrated skin and have not used a cream over your skin. Nor does it leave a white cast behind. This cream gives you a cooling sensation on applying.
However, don’t be tempted to apply excess of the product as it takes some time to get absorbed. Using more than the desired quantity will only make your face feel greasy, but just for about a minute as that is the time it takes to get absorbed completely into your face. Less is more, that’s the motto you should remember while using this product.
Summing it up, I have been using this product for more than a week now and it hasn’t broken me out. I wish the product came with an SPF, though. I feel fresh after using this cream due to its light weight and cooling effects. I am not sure why this range is named young. Their website has not provided any explanation. I feel it is because of its rejuvenating properties.
The website claims it has green tea extracts and mandarin essential oil which acts as anti oxidant and refreshing agent, respectively. That’s the reason why you feel fresh after applying it!
