Do you suffer from dry skin or eczema? Are you in the market for a natural moisturizer? As a first time mom, I am very cautious about keeping my hands clean. As you can imagine, or have experienced, this leads to very dry hands, very quickly. Although eczema doesn’t run in our immediate families, Pinky somehow contracted a small case of it under her neck and behind her little knees. So you can bet I was ecstatic when I was presented with the opportunity to write a review about my experience using Skin MD.
Disclaimer: I am not endorsing Skin MD. I am a mom who tried the product and is sharing my experience with you. Please note that all the opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post, however I did receive a 4oz bottle of lotion to use in my review.
Skin MD Natural Lotion is 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. Second, it enhances the power of the top layer of the skin to resist environmental irritants while protecting the inner natural moisture. Skin MD helps retain your skins natural moisture. It has been proven to treat some of the most severe skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. Skin MD is recommend and endorsed by several leading doctors in dermatology. Skin MD claims to be super hydrating and non-greasy while helping prevent dry skin and shield sensitive skin.
The feature I loved most about Skin MD was the fact that it really is NATURAL! It is hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, parabens and colorants; and it’s made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on the FDA’s “most safe” list. When I got the product I wanted to try it on every inch of my body. My problem areas, embarrassing enough are my feet. Although, it was hydrating at first I didn’t get the results I was hoping for. I do believe that if I continue to use it consistently I might see better results. I also used the lotion on my 15 month old daughter. Her skin is very soft and sensitive, so it means a lot that I was willing to try Skin MD out on her. Again, it helped hydrate, however the eczema spots under her neck are still lightly visible. I think the problem also lies in the location of the eczema. Because moisture builds under her neck when she sweats, it may be a while before it’s completely gone.
In all honesty, Skin MD Natural Shielding lotion really does hydrate at first touch. The lotion has a lot of reach which means it will last a long time. Daddy pointed out that it is a but is a bit watery, but I didn’t mind this much. It is extremely non-greasy which allowed me to use it on my face. I used the product mainly on my hands and this is where I found it to be most beneficial. My hands have been feeling extra smooth and they look rejuvenated, I kid you not, since I started using the product. They now seem to have a natural glow! Overall, I will definitely continue to use this product and recommend it to my friends and family as an option for treating dry skin. I’m giving this product a 1.5 Pinky Up (out of 2)!
Pros & Cons, just to reiterate
The Pros of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion are that it is hypoallergenic, it is non-greasy and it really helps keep your skin hydrated. You can use it anywhere on your body and it’s safe enough for your baby’s bottom!
The Cons of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion are that you have to reapply during the day, then again, what lotion do you not reapply!? Although the lotion goes a long way, the 4oz bottle is a little small for the price (below).
Where can you buy Skin MD
