- What is it, exactly?
A shielding lotion does the real work to prevent dry skin in two ways.
First, it assists the inner layers of skin to absorb moisture. The humectant (an ingredient that attracts moisture) used in Skin MD Natural is unique to it and has been laboratory tested to be 6 times more effective than any other you will find in common creams.
Second, a shielding lotion enhances the power of the top layer of the skin to resist environmental irritants while protecting the inner natural moisture.
This can be a big benefit for those who cook, wash dishes and garden because Skin MD Natural helps skin retain its natural moisture and oils in the face of all those irritating soaps and chemicals.
The manufacturer's website www.skinmdnatural.com has hundreds of dermatologist and user reviews including many addressing severe dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. People with sensitive skin -- and those of us who like to live as naturally as possible -- will appreciate that Skin MD Natural is hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, parabens and colorants. It is made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on the FDA's "most safe" list.
Packaging & Presentation
My Skin MD Natural came as small packets with 3-5 uses per packet as a review sample. They came well packaged, and within a timely manner. It looked just like the bottle but in a small packet.
Ease of Use
Skin MD Natural lotion is extremely easy to use. Wherever you have dry skin, apply it! I used it on my face, my elbows, and my knees. It applies nicely, evenly, and completely grease-free!
Skin MD Natural Lotion hydrates skin as well as enhances its protective abilities. It's a shielding lotion as well as an SPF 15 sunscreen. It is used and recommended by Dermatologists. It lasts a long time, and only needs to be reapplied when it gets washed off!
I must say that I really enjoyed using this lotion. I used it for one week, to see if it will clear up my cheeks! If you can see in the above picture I had some red dots on my cheek. After using this lotion, all imperfections went away. No joke. I didn't wear any make up for an entire week to see if it really worked. It did. I really like the lotion, and I was a little reluctant to try a new product on my face, as I typically break out with new face lotions/moisturizers. After 1 week, I can say how happy & impressed that my skin looks this great!
I support Skin MD Natural to its entirety!
