Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review and GiveawaySunday, January 03, 2010
This giveaway is now closed.
It's beginning to look a lot like winter...
And it's beginning to feel a lot like winter, too.
With sub-zero temperatures and endless snowfalls looming, you can be sure of lower backache thanks to the latter and dry skin thanks to the former. We also have the heat cranked up high so that my daughter won't freeze at night since her room is the coldest in the house. And, although every winter finds me pampering my dry, cracked knuckles, it would appear that this year my hands are a lot drier than winters past.
It was thus with sheer joy that I agreed to try Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion. It boasts many excellent qualities that would make any mom smile. It's over 90% natural, dermatologist-recommended, comedogenic, hypo-allergenic, safe for the whole family, made with high quality food grade ingredients, and free of parabens, harmful fragrances and colorants. In addition, this product is not tested on animals.
Okay, so that all sounds fine and dandy, now doesn't it? Sure! But here is the best part. Unlike most conventional and artificial moisturizers, Skin MD Natural works with the skin to naturally moisturize and heal. What does that mean? Well, if you regularly use moisturizing lotions, you might find that you end up depending on these lotions to maintain the moisture and that you need to apply and reapply constantly. The reason for this is that most conventional lotions only add moisture to the skin's surface. Continued use results in dependence on these lotions for hydration because the skin ends up producing less of its own natural oils.
Skin MD Natural works differently. It helps to restore the skin's natural protective abilities by bonding to the outer layer of the skin, thereby protecting the skin from moisture-robbing irritants and toxins, all the while locking in the skins' natural oils. Yes, that was a mouthful.
Would you like to know how it worked for me? Do I have you at the edge of your seat? I know, the suspense must be torture.
Ladies and gentleman, this stuff is amazing! It only took one application for me to realize that Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion works wonders. My skin instantly felt hydrated and smooth. It absorbed quickly and was non-greasy. It has a slight neutral scent and a little goes a long way. The directions say to apply often at first but then to reduce the number of applications once your skin has reached a comfortable level of moisture. Makes sense, doesn't it?
After only a few days, my knuckles were no longer cracked and, to quote my sister-in-law, my skin felt "like butter!" I should also add that this is not just a hand lotion containing vitamin E. It also contains the rejuvenating properties of aloe vera which is great for your face, and the healing power of herbal extracts which is great for your body. It is also available in an SPF 15 formula. I highly recommend this remarkable product.
