Skin MD Review and Contest!
"It is a natural product that helps protect your skin and fight aging by locking in your skin's natural moisture. It helps heal dry skin caused by harsh weather conditions, leaving skin feeling soft and silky. It is also eco-friendly, dermatologist recommended, and hypo-allergenic.
A shielding lotion is unlike any other conventional, artificial moisturizers because it works with the skin to naturally moisturize and heal. Most conventional, artificial moisturizers only add moisture to the surface of the skin, but do little to repair the skin's natural barrier against moisture robbing irritants. Continued use of artificial moisturizers can cause the skin to actually begin producing less of its own natural oils,thinking that the skin has enough moisture. This can cause skin to form a dependence on the moisturizer for hydration. Skin MD Natural breaks the dry skin cycle by working to help restore skin's natural protective abilities by bonding to the outer layer of skin, strengthening skins natural barrier against toxins and irritants that can dry the skin, while locking in the skin's natural oils. Made in the US using high quality natural ingredients making it over 90% all natural. All ingredients are considered to be of food grade and are also on the FDA's most safe list. It is free of harmful fragrances, parabens, and colorants making it hypoallergenic. We don't participate in animal testing nor does the lotion contain any animal products."
I have really dry skin and was very excited to try this lotion. I have tried nearly everything looking for "the one" that doesn't smell bad, isn't sticky or slimy, and gets rid of the dry, itchy skin. I used this lotion for a few weeks and I have good news! The good news is, it is NOT smelly, it is NOT sticky or slimy-it actually is really nice and absorbs very quickly. The other great thing about Skim MD is that they make this lotion with an SPF 15! I love a lotion with an SPF-every little bit helps. Did it get rid of my dry skin, no, but it really alleviated the itchyness and helped with the dryness. The best part for me was using it on my son. He has the driest, sensitive skin and everything burns him. I have to be really careful what I use on him. I tried just a little spot and no burning! I will be ordering more Sheilding Lotion from Skin MD.
