Skin MD Review and Giveaway-CLOSED



A couple of months ago I was approached about testing out Skin MD's Shielding Lotion. I thought to myself, "oh no, another wanna be natural lotion!" I went over to their website and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Skin MD's lotion contains ingredients that are ok by me and made for people with skin problems. When I had Dexter I also developed psoriasis. It is not noticeable to other people but it is still very annoying. I decided to try this shielding lotion for that reason.



When I first got the bottle I opened it up and put a small amount on my hands. I rubbed it in and it instantly absorbed and felt good. It was far from greasy (which is lovely). The lotion is thinner than I expected but don't let that fool you. I have combination skin on my face and I do not use moisturizers because they feel heavy and they clog my pores. Skin MD's Shielding Lotion instantly made a dramatic difference in my face and hands! I cannot say the same for my psoriasis but then again because it is under a clothed area it is hard to get lotion to stay on my skin.

How does this Shielding Lotion work anyway?
Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance. Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition.
Skin MD Natural uses only the finest natural ingredients, and is focused on urging the skin to be active, and to use its own moisture to effectively heal itself. It is not oily or sticky, doesn't sit on top of your skin leaving a greasy residue on everything you touch, it doesn't rub or wash off easily, is hypoallergenic, fragrance, colorant and paraben free and dermatology tested.

Finally I have found a product that not only delivers what it promises but it far exceeded my expectations. I will never use another moisturizer on my face again! WOW it is that great. The Shielding Lotion retails for $18 (a little goes an incredibly long way) and can be purchased here.

I need this as I have incredibly dry and sensitive skin. When I use regular moisturizers, I have to keep reappyling it several times a day, and my skin feels goopy afterwards.

I need this product badly because I have so many skin issues! My face is an oil slick with dry, flaky patches and constant acne on the chin. The prescription topicals I use to fight acne make my skin more sensitive than it already is, so it gets sun damaged and wind burned and stuff way more easily. My face is always red and irritated. My upper body also breaks out and my legs are always itchy after I take a shower.
