Today's review continues the theme of April Showers with a look at Natio Meditate Shower Gel.
Natio is an Australian brand whose products I've previously found to be somewhat hit & miss so I didn't have particularly high expectations when it came to trialling this.
Although presented in a plastic bottle, I liked that the colour and ethnic design give a nod to a spa experience. It has a functional pump dispenser and is transparent so that I could see how much was remaining.
Natio Meditate Shower Gel is a thick gel formula with a caramel colour and gives a generous lather. The main feature of this shower gel is the very strong scent which lingers on the skin after use. Natio pinpoint Narcissus Attar as the scent, describing it as being reminiscent of green leaves and fresh flowers, which I was very surprised to read and don't agree with. I found the fragrance to be warm and sensual- certainly not green and fresh and it certainly won't appeal to everyone. Nonetheless, I found it calming for use in the evenings.
Natio Meditate Shower Gel was ok- I didn't love it nor did I hate it, it's just an average shower gel and for that reason, I'd be unlikely to repurchase it. At £9 for 240ml, I feel that it's overpriced despite the spa-like branding. There are so many other (often cheaper) shower gels available which I want to try and nothing about this stood out for me to sufficiently justify a repurchase.
