Inexpensive, low irritant
Despite the negative reviews on here this brand has saved me from a life of no make up or swollen itchy eyelids covered in dermatitis. I'd looked everywhere for eye make that contained no chromium, nickel and colbolt with little success until I found this brand. I'm using the face primer which makes my skin look and feel great. A natural brown eyeshadow pallet, a little less colour than I'm used to but smooth, looks pretty and does not irritate my eye. The mascara is a little disappointing though as although "black" its really more of a brown/black and doesn't coat my eyelashes as well as my old mascara. However, the upside is that I can wear it without suffering for days after

Uranium is "Natural" too. MISUSING "NATURAL" - JUST A MARKETING STRATEGY!
Misusing the word "Natural". Uranium comes from the earth too, hence, it is natural. There is pretty much nothing natural about their products. They are actually using laboratory made CHEMICALS! And simply marketing themselves to the current market trend and customers. ACCC??
Allow me to explain. According to Cambridge, Natural means "as found in nature and not involving anything made or done by people". In other words, "Organic". However, since Organic is a commercial term and is very precise, they are using "Natural" to mislead people. Accor...ding to USDA, Natural means: 1. Toxic persistent pesticides is ALLOWED 2. GMOS - ALLOWED 3. Antibiotics - ALLOWED 4. Growth hormones - ALLOWED 5. Sludge & Irradiation - ALLOWED 6. No Animal welfare requirements 7. Cows do not require to be on pasture for pasture season
Looking for a natural product - avoid Natio
Don't be fooled thinking this product is natural. Contains a lot of nasties, only claim is that they use 100% pure essential oils. Read their labels very carefully, other Australian companies provide more honestly and openness about their ingredients. Have thrown all Natio out....want to support companies like Jojoba instead
Natio mineral eyeshadow trio
Have tried these eyeshadow palettes from Natio with varying degrees of success. Colours are great, but they have caused itchy, weepy eyes and quite nasty allergic reactions.
And they are NOT MADE IN AUSTRALIA.
They are designed in Australia, but made in China and Taiwan. This is the most upsetting thing about Natio-they tout themselves as an Australian company, made in Australia, blah blah blah, but not all their products are made here and when I asked them about misleading advertising they were unabashed.
Have changed to Nude By Nature-their products are made in Australia or the USA, are good quality and don’t cause allergic eye reactions.
Nation Shampoo and Conditioner
First time user of Natio Daily shampoo and conditioner and absolutely love love love it. I am not a big fan of hair dryers so when my hair dries naturally it dries straight and smooth instead of fuzzy.
Shampoo & conditioner
So very pleased you have reintroduced the shampoo & conditioners as have always used them AND now they are back very happy AND the aromas are superb and very soothing. A very satisfied customer as I use all your make ups and skin products too.
Best pressed powder ever!
Perfect finish and amazing coverage. I couldn’t live without it.
All of my friends who have tried mine have ended up using it themselves!
My only gripe would be, it’s a bit overpriced for my liking, I try to find it on sale and buy a couple at a time.
I bought a few products from their rose range - cleanser, makeup remover, day cream, night cream and my face fame throat flared up immediately. My face had rashy itchy spots and felt like it was burning. Very disappointed especially because it said it was for sensitive skin.Would strongly recommend against using these products.
Reaction to Acne range
I used the acne products for the first time and had a bad reaction. My face and throat are red and swollen. The skin is burnt and split. I am having to take antihistamines and use paw paw cream to try and calm the reaction. I recommend to patch test this product before use. Natio have addressed my concerns and asked for the product to be returned for testing.
NATIO HAND CREAMS
I found these hand creams easily within the department store in Melbourne. I chose the mature skin variety as I am over 60 years of age. Large range of products to suit most skin types. Love the pump action hand cream which has a delicate fragrance and is not overpowering. Non greasy and absorbs into the skin easily.

Surprised at value for money
Purchased 2 mineral eye shadow pallets and was very surprised at the quality of this mineral makeup. The colour pallets are beautiful and real easy to apply. I have mature skin and wear makeup just about every day and thought I would try a mineral based eye shadow for something different (I usually use Revlon or Napoleon). The eye shadow remains even with no clumping after 8 hours of wear, I'm very impressed. The best thing is it doesn't cost a fortune! The rosewater gentle creamy gel cleanser good too, especially for my dry skin. Overall I'm happy to try other Natio beauty products, maybe the foundation ;)
Natio mineral powder foundation is great. I have oily skin and I have tried so many foundations over the years and they just don’t work like this product does. Easy to apply with brush, blurs imperfections and large pores, feels nice on the skin. It also lasts most of the day unlike other liquid ones. I would recommend this product for anyone with oily skin, probably not for dry skin types though. And it’s a great price too!
Terrible allergy using Under eye cream
The under eye Natio cream is the most terrible ever product I have used on my face. It gave me red patches around my eyes and it’s so stubborn that it doesn’t disappear. I am on Claritin everyday and taken appointment with Doctor too. Please do not use this product especially close to your eye.
Change of ingredients maybe?
I've used this product for many years but the last bottle I bought has created an itchy rash on my eyelids. I bought it about a year ago and within a week I had horrible itchy eyelids. I also bought a new mascara so over the past year have been testing this to eliminate what it is. I stopped using the eye makeup remover for a couple of months and continued the mascara, and my itchy eyelids went away, eliminating the mascara as the culprit. I used the Natio remover last night to finally work out if it was the cause (always rinse my skin after using it) and have woken up with itchy eyelids again, so have deduced it is a reaction to the ingredients. I don't have an old bottle to compare the contents.

Better than the well known expensive French products
Last year I became quite ill and was reacting to cosmetics I had been using for years. Since being unwell for the last 18 months I have gradually changed all my cosmetics to Natio. Since then I have had constant praise and admiration about how good my skin looked. Despite being on high dose prednisone and many other medication. I will never go back to using anything else again. When I am well enough and can get out to the shops I am always on the look out for specials or good valued gift packs. All my female friends had hand cream for Christmas..., my daughters had Natios scented candles and my husband now uses and after shower/ shave balm. I even gave my mother my eye cream when I was staying saying once you start using it you will not want to use enough. It was such a pity I then had to buy myself a new one and check out for any new deals.

Questions & Answers
I recently purchased the Natio Sun kissed Glow Gradual Tan Lotion and have found it to be extremely "runny" and quite difficult to use.
Previously the product has been a lovely creamy lotion.
Has the product changed?
In April 2019 I used Natio body wash and handcream. I came out in a horrible rash on my wrists and pubic region. After weeks of treatment with steroid creams it was gone. I threw the product in the bin. Then just in the last couple of weeks I used the Natio lipstick. Disaster struck again, big swollen, cracked and very painful lips. Using the eye shadow, have experienced itchy eyes. I bought all of these products in January, so had no receipts to take them back to the pharmacy where I bought them (Amcal, asked for this). Now I am faced with specialist expenses.
