Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review & Giveaway [CLOSED]

A representative from Skin MD Natural contacted me and asked if I would review their Shielding Lotion.  According to their website, the lotion acts as a barrier between the skin and harmful toxins.  In addition to protecting your skin, the barrier keeps moisture and oils locked inside, preventing and alleviating dryness.  They claim their product is safe to use on your face as it will not clog pores, is hypoallergenic, contains no parabens, and is fragrance free.  And last, but not least, they are a cruelty free company.  I said, "Bring it on!" - and it was been brough-en!



What piqued my interest is the fact the lotion is sometimes used to treat serious skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.  Below are some before and after photographs of a gentleman who suffered from eczema for about eight years.  He used the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion for approximately three years and saw fantastic results.

SCROLL DOWN QUICKLY IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH!  
LOL!

As you can see, it really transformed his skin!

Although I am not afflicted with eczema or psoriasis, I do have extremely dry skin.  My hands are especially parched.  I am the world's biggest germ-phobe and wash them a million times a day.  (I was actually on the cover of 'The World's Biggest Germ-Phobe Who Washes Her Hands a Million Times a Day' magazine.  Ha ha ha!)  My skin occasionally cracks from the constant cleansing, which is awful because cracks allow bacteria to enter the skin.  I might be 27, but my dry and wrinkled hands look 87.  LOL!  I was definitely curious to see if the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion could soothe and heal my mitts.

So, I have been using this product for a little over a week on my hands and body.  Here are my pros and cons:

PROS:
  • has a very faint, pleasant scent that dissipates immediately after application
  • absorbs quickly and isn't the slightest bit greasy
  • makes your skin feel smooth
  • gives you the sensation that you are wearing a glove over your skin (I guess they meant it when they said the lotion would serve as a protective barrier!)
  • great for sensitive skin
CONS:
  • has a very faint, pleasant scent that dissipates immediately after application 
    (Yes, I listed this as a pro, but that's because I like scented lotion.  Remember, the product is advertised as being fragrance free.)
  • not the most moisturizing lotion I've ever used; I still have to use traditional lotion in conjunction with it
  • I didn't see any significant changes in regards to my hands
  • the price: $18.00 for a 4 oz. bottle, $25.00 for a 4 oz. bottle with SPF 15
 If you work in a field where you work a lot with your hands, have chronic dry spots, or worry about chemicals in make-up penetrating your skin, this may be a good product for you to try.  (Please check with your primary care physician or dermatologist if you have a serious skin ailment before trying this lotion!)

Skin MD Natural was kind enough to offer one of my awesome followers a full size bottle to try out
