Ms Curious likes: Natio Spa pep-up body cleanser

On our stay at Hotel Lindrum in Melbourne last month, we were provided with Natio Spa toiletries.

I recognise the Natio brand and I know it's a cosmetics and skincare line, but I've never used their products.

The shampoo, conditioner and body lotion we tried are all nice, but the standout product is the body wash - the pep-up body cleanser.

The product blurb: Certified organic plant extracts with ayurvedic essences to cleanse your body, refresh your spirit and put a lively spark in your day.

Ingredients in spotlight: Certified organic ginkgo biloba, peppermint, eucalyptus, lemongrass and basil

The reference to "ayurvedic essence" is an attempt to make it sound exotic which doesn't do much for me; I'm not looking for any medicinal properties from my body wash.

I recently bought a full sized-bottle.

The cleanser has a green tinge, and a fairly thin consistency.  See it running off my hand!

I use around a 10c coin size portion each time.

It suds up well in the shower which is important to me.  I tried to capture the suds but it was a major fail.  Using one hand only for the camera did not help matter.

It cleans well and whilst it doesn't moisturise, it doesn't dry out my skin either.

All these are good and well, but the main selling point of the product is the aroma.

The mix of plant extracts creates a strong herbal scent that hits you as soon as you open the cap.  I can pick out the basil and a touch of the peppermint, but it has a sweet note as well.  It is unique and refreshing, and a mild scent lingers on my skin after the shower which I love.

For those who have allergy concerns or are interested in chemicals used in their beauty products, here is the full ingredient list.

A product made is Australia is always a bonus to me.

The price is friendly too - you can buy a 210ml bottle from their website for $10.86 plus postage.  I paid around $12 at the pharmacy.

I was looking for a new body wash and I'm glad to find the Natio Spa pep-up body cleanser.  I highly recommend it for use during summer or after exercise. 

P.S. Ask your partner to try (if you want to share) - Mr Curious likes it too.


  1. I bought the Natio for Men Spice of Life body wash for Mr K recently because he complained about smelling like a girl with my usual one, and we both loved the scent. I saw this pep up one for $6.99 in a cosmetic clearance store the other day and was tempted but wasn't sure if the scent was still too floral-ly. Do you think a guy would wash with it without turning up his nose?

  2. Kiki, Mr Curious used it first in the hotel and he recommended it to me. He uses it now so it's all good. And for $6.99 you can't go wrong :-)

  3. I am really impressed along with your writing skills and also with the structure for your weblog.
    Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it's uncommon to look a great weblog like this one these days..

    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
