Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review & Giveaway

One of the side effects of the brutal New England winters for us is dry skin. Every winter all four of my boys end up with eczema. One of the twins also suffers from keratosis pilaris which will often flare up during these colder months. While I too will battle dry skin, this year I had a big problem with my hands being extremely dry and even cracking and bleeding. So I am always on the lookout for natural skincare to help keep us all nicely moisturized.

I have heard really good things about Skin MD Natural in the past so I was really excited to try it out. Unlike traditional lotions, this shielding lotion duplicates your skin's protective barrier thus protecting you from harsh irritants that cause dry skin in the first place.

"Skin MD Natural uses a blend of natural ingredients in combination with significant recent scientific advances to hydrate and help heal dry skin without any greasy residue, harsh fragrances, or other potentially toxic ingredients. Conventional lotions simply attempt to replace lost moisture with artificial moisture.".

The first thing I did was add Skin MD Natural do our bath time routine. So one by one as each boy got out of the tub (shower for the 6 year old) I would cover their bodies with some of this. I immediately noticed how smoothly it went on and I that I did not need to use a lot to get good coverage. Skin MD Natural boasts about being non-greasy and this is very true. There was no need for me to wipe my hands on a towel after applying. And I have to point out that the 6 year old who normally hates when I put any moisturizer on him, really liked this one.

But I think the person who probably needed this the most was me. I mentioned how bad my hands were, I don't remember them ever being so dry and cracked before. So I started putting a nice daily coating on my hands that would quickly absorb in and within a few days I could feel the improvement. Now I just need to remember to keep putting it on every day!

Eco-Friendly
Skin MD Natural uses natural ingredients, does not use any animal products and is not tested on animals. However, they did not stop there. What also makes this product and company great is that they use eco-friendly manufacturing practices. Both the Skin MD Natural and Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 are manufactured in the USA using 100% solar power. Wouldn't it be awesome of more companies did this?! I really love that and I can only hope that more businesses start using renewable energy like this in the very near future.
