Being a beauty product junkie, I am always excited at the opportunity to review new body and skincare products so when Skin MD Natural sent me a bottle of their lotion I was interested to see what it did. I figure it is probably best if I let them tell you exactly what their lotion is supposed to do so here is an excerpt from their website:
"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."
The first day I used it I was fairly indifferent to it. It went on like any other lotion and didn't have any offensive smells or anything so I was fine with it. Then the next day I noticed that my hands felt like they were recently lotion-ed up even though I hadn't put anything on them since that morning. I was pretty impressed. The shield that Skin MD talks about is real. I put on the lotion every morning and literally still feel it all day long even after washing my hands several times. It says on the bottle that this lotion is lightweight enough to use anywhere on your body, including your face. That's pretty nice and convenient to have an all in one lotion in one bottle. A bottle of this lotion would make a fantastic stocking stuffer.
