CLOSED ~ Skin MD Review and Giveaway!

This time of year is the worst time of year for my skin. It gets dry, scaly and itchy. I buy a tons of lotion and always try and keep moisturized. If not, I have skin that looks like a crocodile. It's not pretty.

Last year I did a review for SkinMD and loved it. So when I was contacted again to do another review a bottle of Skin MD, I agreed. I first tried a sample of Skin MD Shielding lotion at the Type-A-Mom conference a couple of years ago. It was a little sample so I used it on my hands and liked it.

I pulled some info from their site because it explains what this lotion is all about better than I can. I think it's important information for people to know.

From the Skin MD website:
Everyday contact with soaps, cleansers, shampoos, household chemistry and other substances that strip away skin's own protective layer (a thin film made of natural fats, lipids), leaves the skin's deeper layers unprotected. Without this protection in place oils and the natural moisture of the skin evaporates and absorption of irritants is no longer prevented.

Conventional lotions only add artificial moisture to the skin temporarily alleviating the dryness or itching, but these moisturizers don't actually solve the problem, they only treat symptoms without eliminating the cause. Dry skin is unable to absorb the newly added moisture to allow repair – it does not get "locked" into the skin. It gets lost easily. That’s why we keep applying more and more of the conventional lotions. Even so, skin easily gets addicted and may even suspend production of it's own moisture, relying on added moisturizer.

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.


It really works. It is a great lotion especially for really dry skin. Hubby really likes it too. I had to hide my bottles from him so he wouldn't use it all. The lotion is neither thick nor watery. It is not greasy and lasts a long time. It goes on smoothly and it is absorbed immediately. You only have to use a little bit as well. Unlike some lotions where you have to spread half the bottle on just to feel like you have moisturized.

I like that the lotion is unscented as well. My skin feels moist and hydrated now and I love that.It is a little pricey but it is well worth it if you have dry skin and nothing else has worked for you.

If you want to try Skin MD, then read the rules and enter. Skin MD is going to send one of my lucky readers a bottle for you to try as well.

  8. I've learned that Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion works to restore the skin's protective barrier, blocking toxins and irritants and providing the much needed moisture to dry, damaged skin with natural ingredients. Skin MD Natural is more than a lotion, it is a solution for dry skin and other skin conditions.
    I really want to try this because I have a few trouble spots where nothing seems to work.

  21. Dry itchy skin warns you that the protective elements of your outer layer of skin have been stripped away. A shielding lotion works with skin to restore and strengthen skin's natural barrier.
    My skin is very dry in the winter, so I would use this lotion.
