I recently had the opportunity to review Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion and I’m excited to share my review with you. I’m pretty skeptical about trying new lotions, I have sensitive skin and most lotions tend to cause break outs. However, when I found out that Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is a hypoallergenic, fragrance and colorant free, family friendly skin care product that is great for sensitive skin, I decided to give it a try. This lotion heals dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions plus its safe for babies and works great on diaper rash and baby’s eczema. Sounds perfect for me, I suffer from dry skin at times plus my poor feet are always so dry and cracked and with flip flop season approaching fast I needed to try something to get my feet looking cute again.
I was excited when the bottle of lotion arrived and immediately put it to work. Here’s a little information about the lotion:
Skin MD Natural 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.
Since I was unsure of how my skin might react (I’m telling you, my skin is super sensitive!) I decided to try out the lotion on my feet at bedtime. The directions state: Apply small amount, initially every 2-8 hours until moisture level improves, then just once every 12-24 hours. Well, of course since I applied the lotion right before going to bed I didn’t reapply every 2-8 hours. I figured it would be okay for the first time applying, I was mainly making sure I didn’t have a reaction to the lotion before applying it more frequently and to other areas. The next morning I woke up clear of any breakouts/sensitive skin reactions and with smoother, healthier looking skin than I’ve had in quite sometime!
I love that the lotion is fragrance free, other lotions I have used, especially those for my feet, have had such weird scents that I couldn’t use them unless I was staying home. That’s not a problem with Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion. Now I’m not sure how much I like the “silky” feeling the lotions leaves on my hands but my skin immediately felt and looked smooth and remained that way even while I walked around and shut down the house for the night. From past experiences, most lotions only keep my feet and elbows looking and feeling smooth for a very short amount of time, especially when I’m walking around. This isn’t a problem with Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.
No, not all of the roughness and dryness completely disappeared over night, but there was a huge improvement and I have continued to see improvement each day I use the lotion. I am forgetful and never could remember to apply it as much as recommended at first but even with just one application, this lotion immediately started improving my horribly dry skin. I was honestly surprised by how quickly the lotion worked and how long lasting it is, I have tried many different lotions and usually I have to reapply throughout the day in hopes of hiding my dry skin. With Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, I can apply the lotion and then go about running errands and not have to worry about the embarrassment of dry skin! Now I can happily wear my flip flops again without having to check my feet for dry skin every few minutes. Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is now a part of my every day skin care routine!
