Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review & Give Away

I had the opportunity to try a new moisturizer for free thanks to the folks at Skin MD. The following are my honest opinions on Skin MD Natural shielding lotion after two weeks of trial.

I have medium to dry skin. In the winter it can be pretty dry with peeling spots around what most people call the "T zone" - nose and forehead. I use a moisturizer daily - and have every day without exception since I was 15 years old. I also wash my face daily with a face wash every night before bed without exception. It is so ingrained in me at this point I literally cannot go to bed at night without washing my face - not matter how tired I am.

I am terrible about remembering and making myself use lotion on the rest of my body, but I have taken really good care of my face! =)

I'm not particular in the brand that I use. I like something that is light and nongreasy. In the past I have tried a couple of different brands and when I find one I like I tend to stick with it a while. I've used Avon, St. Ives, and Aveeno and have had good luck with all of them. I've also tried some stinkers that left my face sticky, greasy, and even worse - burning, rashy, and irritated.

I've been using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion for the past two weeks in the place of my regular face moisturizer and I have really been enjoying it. It is light, non greasy, and dries fast. It leaves my face feeling quenched.

What's Different About Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion?
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is different than most of the moisturizers on the market in that 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.

Skin MD is 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.

If you are interested in trying this for yourself you can visit their website HERE. There is information on where to find it locally as well as how to order from them directly online. They can sell it to you in a single bottle or by the 1/2 or whole case. Prices vary depending on quantity but a single bottle cost $18.

For us "frugalistas" this is a little pricey compared to the drugstore varieties. However, it does fall in the same price range as some of the national brands as well as some of the Avon varieties I've used in the past. Skin MD does what it says it will do - and it seems to be lasting a pretty long time for me. So, overall the value doesn't seem that bad to me.
