I recently had the opportunity to review Skin MD Shielding Lotion which is a natural skin care product.
When I got the bottle, it said it was for “Face, Hands, and Body” so I was a tad skeptical because how can a lotion not do any damage (breakouts) on your face if you can use it on your body? Have you ever done that before, used “body” lotion on your face because you ran out of moisturizer? I have and it is not always a pleasant experience!
But Skin MD Shielding Lotion was different. I have used it for over a week now and no breakouts and I love the way my skin on my body, as well as my face feels!!! Soft & Silky. It is light, and not greasy, and only has a faint faint scent that does not linger. That is definitely a plus if you use it on your face!
According to Skin MD:
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 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.
The Skin MD website says that the Skin MD Shielding Lotion acts as a shield, keeping external irritants out, and moisture in. It can be found online or at some local Walgreens & CVS stores. Use their store locator to see if your CVS or Walgreens has it.
Definitely a thumbs up from me!
