Review and giveaway: Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion- (giveaway closed)



My countertop is starting to look like a pharmacy counter- I have all my skin care products, my husband's skin care products and a whole bunch of products for my baby daughter's dry skin.  So I was a little unsure about adding another bottle to my collection, but I'm so glad that I did!

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is different from your typical lotion. It doesn't just moisturize your skin, but it hydrates it while also blocking your skin from irritants that your skin is exposed to all day.  According to the Skin MD website, the proprietary ingredient in the shielding lotion has a moisturizing factor that is at least 6 times greater than glycerin, the standard against which all products that promote rentention of moisture are measured against.

I tested this product out on three of the four members of my household. I tend to have slightly oily skin on my face and have problems with dryness on my feet and my hands.  I liked the fact that this shielding lotion went on smoothly and didn't feel heavy on my face at all. I tend to not use creams and lotions on my face as often as I should, because I don't like the way they feel, but this one didn't bother me at all. It left my face feeling smooth and moisturized but not heavy. I also used it on my feet and hands and was very impressed at how fast it took care of the ongoing dryness that's been bothering me. I only had to apply it once or twice per day for soft skin, instead of every hour as I had been doing with the lotion I was using before.

My husband and my daughter both suffer from fairly serious skin dryness. In fact, my daughter's eczema has gotten so bad this winter that our doctor had us using hydrocortisone on her skin several times per day. I used the Skin MD on her and it worked just as well as the hydrocortisone to clear up the dry areas.  And I didn't have to apply it as often as I did the hydrocortisone, which is a great thing for my busy schedule! My husband also really liked this shielding lotion and said that it worked well on his dry skin.

The thing I liked best about this shielding lotion is that it can replace all the piles of skin products that my family has been using. Anything that simplifies my life is a great thing.   And it uses natural products, so it's safe for use on everyone, which is wonderful. You can also get Skin MD Shielding Lotion with SPF 15, which I, as an incredibly pale person, need to put on my shopping list!

You can buy Skin MD online for $18 for a 4 ounce bottle. This is definitely more expensive than a lot of the skin care products in my bathroom, but given the number of things that it can replace and how well it works, I think it's definitely worth the cost. Also, you only use a tiny amount of this lotion at a time, so a 4 ounce bottle will last quite a while!

One of you is going to have the opportunity to win a full-sized bottle of Skin MD Shielding Lotion! Open to worldwide mailing addresses.

It's very economical, you only have to use it a couple times a day. Other lotions I have to re apply every hour to get relief from my dry skin

Not only does the lotion help prevent water loss, but it helps promote the skin to make its own moisture. I cant wait to try this. I am a mail carrier and my hands are extremely dry!!!

Skin MD Natural can be used for conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, as well as good old fashioned dry skin. Plus, it can be used on both the face and the body, which means less clutter on the bathroom counter! I love that!

Shielding lotion is a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better.

It is a shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin throughout the day.
