In addition to all the other obvious perks, one of my favorite parts of studying abroad has been getting to explore all the new shops and brands that aren’t available to me back in the states. One brand I came across whilst browsing was Natio, an Australian beauty and skincare company, and I was instantly drawn in by their products. They’re a drugstore brand that reminds me a bit of Neutrogena: they’re low-cost, have reputable quality, and are pretty safe for sensitive skin. So I immediately knew that I had to purchase some of their products to give them a try. I also chose to pick up a variety of both makeup and skincare products so I had a large range of items to try and judge the brand off of.
What I purchased:
Eyeshadow Palette in Earth (right)
Rich Lip Colour in Lychee, Watermelon, Pomegranate, & Cranberry (top to bottom)
Wellness Body Scrub (not pictured)
*These were given as a free gift after purchasing a certain dollar amount.
So far I’ve only properly tried the Wellness body butter, and I’ve absolutely loved it. It’s left my skin feeling so silky and soft every time I’ve used it. With the remaining skincare, I’m most excited to try the body scrub (because who doesn’t love a good body scrub?!) and the exfoliating body bar because I like the idea of it being a two-in-one product to make my showers a little bit shorter. Makeup-wise I’m really looking forward to the eyeshadows and the lip crayons, because when I swatched them in stores they all had beautifully rich pigmentation. I had a great first impression with the products so I have high hopes for how they’ll perform when I give them a proper try!
