Review – Skin MD Natural

Being a mom is tough on your hands. Laundry, cooking, dishes, tending to boo-boos all require lots of hand washing which washes away the natural oils that help protect your hands. Add to that the winter temperatures and winds here in Colorado and you’ve got a recipe for dry cracked and in some cases bleeding hands. So I was thrilled to get the chance to try out Skin MD Natural.

I checked out the website and saw this really cool video of how this lotion protects your hands by creating a barrier to keep moisture in and harmful stuff out. You can see it here.

Here’s what the maker has to say…
Skin Care Breakthrough – Shielding Lotion
Your Skin Has Rarely Felt or Looked So Good

If you‘ve been looking for a skin care product that can heal dry skin and keep the ravages of time at bay, take a look at a breakthrough based on years of research by doctors and chemists - shielding lotion.

A Shielding Lotion is far more effective as a dry skin treatment than conventional moisturizing lotions or protective creams. If you suffer from dry skin, you know that just using a moisturizing lotion doesn't solve the problem. A shielding lotion does much more than just treat dry skin – it’s a new kind of skin care product that makes a real difference to all skin types.

Skin MD Natural™ is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield.

Glycerin has been the standard against which all humectants are measured. Until now no other humectant drew in as much moisture from the air as glycerin. But the proprietary formulation in Skin MD Natural has a moisturizing factor of at least 6 times greater than glycerin. Combined with its protective properties and natural ingredients, this makes Skin MD Natural a truly unique product.

New Product for Complete Skin Care:

Everyday skin care routine should provide complete protection and hydration to the skin. To achieve this goal, harsh environ¬mental irritants along with excessive sun radiation should be kept away from the skin so that it remains youthful and healthy.

We would like to introduce the unique product that combines the most beneficial features of shielding and sunscreen lotions - Skin MD Natural + SPF15.

This product helps prevent loss of natural oils and moisture, doesn't allow irritating substances to penetrate the skin and absorbs the part of UV spectrum that contributes to premature skin ageing and development of skin cancer.
Skin MD Natural™ utilizes the finest effective natural ingredients for dry skin treatment along with the latest advances in technology to hydrate and protect the skin.

This is an entirely new concept in skin care requiring a new classification: "Shielding Lotion". A shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin throughout the day.

An accumulated effect of Skin MD Natural is fully realized after only a few days of daily use. Depending on how dry your skin is the first few days may require reapplications after only a few hours. Usually, after a few days of continuous use, only one or two daily applications are necessary to see the improvement.

Me again!

When I received my lotion I tried it out right away and the first thing I noticed is that it rubs in quickly. That’s good cuz as a mom who’s busy cooking dinner you don’t need slippery hands! The next thing I noticed is this lotion has a pleasant scent that dissipates quickly…another good thing as my hubby doesn’t care for perfumes. The final test…how does it work? Well my skin feels great! No more dry and cracked skin…and no more bleeding knuckles! YAY!

I was also pleased to see that Skin MD has “No animal products or testing. Dermatology tested, fragrance & colorant free, paraben free, and hypoallergenic.”

Now for the even better part…
YOU CAN TRY THIS TOO! Skin MD Natural will give one lucky commenter on my blog a sample of Skin MD Natural to try out too.

  4. That sounds really cool!

  5. I've started working at the library and, between the cold and handling paper, my hands have been so dry lately. I've not been happy at all with the lotions I have at the house. Thanks for the recommendation, Renee :-)

  6. I'd love to try this! I wash my hands often, trying to avoid colds and so on, so they're always dry no matter how much lotion I slather on. I love that this has SPF in it, too. My hands don't need to look any older than they already do. Thanks, Renee!

  7. My hands have been really dry since we moved to CO, I guess it's the cold weather. It doesn't bother me that much, but my hands are looking really old! Maybe I need some lotion?

  8. I have to get my hands on some of that! Or, some of that lotion on my hands! Great review.... And, thanks...pick me pick me!!!

  9. Just put some aloe on it, Pimple Popper M.D.
