Skin MD Review and Giveaway


I had the opportunity to review Skin MD Natural Shielding lotion. Here is an excerpt from the company about their lotion. 
"Most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture; they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the dehydration process.

Skin MD Natural has an added benefit of forming a natural barrier, sealant on the skin, keeping its own natural moisture inside. This eliminates the need for having to put an artificial moisturizer on several times during the day, as Skin MD Natural lasts a good portion of 8 hours with one application.

This is important, because it decreases your need for applying excess moisturizer and allows the body to take care of its own moisture needs without the added bother of putting on another cream," writes Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in cosmetic dermatology.

My opinion
I change at least 10 diapers a day and help a three year old go potty. That is a lot of hand washing just taking care of my kids! Add to that, I live in the desert. My hands are always dry and I’m constantly putting on lotion with very little difference in my dry skin. Within 3 days of using Skin MD’s lotion, my hands were no longer dry. So needless to say, I really like this product.
When I put on the lotion for the first time, I noticed how smooth and silky my hands felt. Even after the lotion dried, my hands felt soft. There isn’t much of a scent, which I think is a good thing. I personally don’t like lotion that has a powerful smell.
After a few days I noticed that I was applying the Skin MD lotion less frequently than the previous brand that I was using. My hands were staying soft and hydrated and I was using less lotion. That’s a home run in my book.

  1. I learned from the website that "A shielding lotion becomes part of the skin's protective barrier helping to strengthen and restore it." Cool. I'll have to look for the term "shielding" on lotion bottles now. :)

  7. This was my favorite line(s)"Most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture, they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the dehydration process."

    No wonder my skin is so dry!

  55. I learned that: "Conventional lotions only add surface moisture to temporarily alleviate the dryness or itching. Shielding lotions are an effective dry-skin treatment because they bond with the skin and protect it for long periods of time."
