Product Review: Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion

Brand: Skin MD Natural
Name: Shielding Lotion
Size: 120 mL/4 oz
Price: $25 USD

You all know how hard it is to find a greaseless, easily-absorbed moisturizer and so I was really excited to try a new product. Beyond just a "moisturizer", this is a "shielding lotion" and claims to not only reduce the amount of epidermal water loss, but to increase the skin's ability to moisturize itself.

A shielding lotion is "a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better...Skin MD Natural is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield."

To Purr About:
- the lotion really is promptly absorbed within seconds and leaves almost no greasy or oily feeling at all
- very light lotion
- slight scent (but a nice one)
- several minutes later I washed my hands (you know what usually happens with normal creams and hand-washing!) and nothing happened! the lotion didn't wash off at all

Claws Out:

- $25 is a lot to pay for a shielding lotion, although to be fair, you don't need to use a lot of it to get good results

Final Comments:
Although I find it hard to spend the money to purchase this lotion on a consistent basis, it really is one of the lightest and non-greasy hand lotions I've ever tried. It would be especially helpful to people who suffer from skin problems, such as eczema or psoriasis though.

To get more information, receive a free sample or to order some of this great lotion, check out Skin MD Natural web site here.

Thanks very much to Pete for contacting me and sending me a sample!

That's an interesting product. I have never heard of it before. Its too bad they don't have a version with SPF (or at least i didnt notices 1 on their website).
