Skin MD Review & Giveaway - ENDED


Since moving to Arizona, I think I've tried at least 20 different moisturizers but my skin just soaks up the lotion and I have to constantly reapply (I'm sure those of you who live in the desert can empathize). When Skin MD Natural offered to send me their Shielding Lotion to review I was excited after checking out their website and learning that it is hypoallergenic, fragrance, colorant and paraben free (all things I look for in a bath/body product). I also appreciated that they don't participate in animal testing or use any animal products in their lotion.

After a few days of testing out the Shielding Lotion, I love how it isn't sticky or oily like some lotions but still kept my skin feeling moisturized throughout the day. I love how a little dot of this stuff goes a long way and I enjoyed the natural clean scent. Mr. Designs by Vanessa also got in on the product testing and he loved how smooth his skin felt after just one application (just don't tell his friends he spoke about his smooth skin). I would definitely recommend this lotion to anyone with dry or sensitive skin!

Skin MD Natural is generously giving away a bottle of their Shielding Lotion to one of my lucky readers! Keep reading for the details.

I learned from the site that A shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin throughout the day.

I learnt that if Skin MD Natural™ is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue,it transforms the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield. And tht glycerin has been the standard against which all humectants are measured.

I've never heard of shielding lotion other than sunblock. I didn't realize there were lotions that could "bond" with the skin to block in moisture. I really want to try the Skin MD Natural + SPF15!

I like the idea of a "shielding lotion." I have super dry skin and would love to try this!

Have been wanting to try this brand but it can't be found in my country. I think my scaly dry skin would benefit lots from this product.

I learnt that Skin MD Natural keeps irritants out while keeping moisture in, making it the perfect dry skin care product.

That sounds really good and promising!

I learnt that Skin MD Natural™ does improves skin breathing as it helps keep the skin pores from being clogged with outside irritants that are often too complex to be eliminated naturally.

I need such a lotion! Have not found a good one to date.

I learned that the shield keeps irritants out and moisture in. Also, their lotion with SPF looks pretty good too!

Thanks for the contest!

Skin MD Natural™ has a moisturizing factor at least 6 times greater than that of the (previously) greatest humectant: glycerin.

Skin MD uses humectants, which pull moisture from the air to deliver it to your skin.

Hi! i learned that skin md shielding lotion is a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better

sounds great! especially for the drier air in winter

I learned that Skin MD is not just moisturizing, but SHIELDING - hadn't heard of this concept before. Makes a lot of sense though.
