Skin MD Review and a Giveaway

**** Comments are now closed*****




The wonderful and very generous people at Skin MD offered me a trial of their Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion. I accepted because I get very dry skin in the winter. Working with kids, I also wash my hands a lot.

One of the things I liked about this lotion is that it did not feel sticky or waxy when I applied it. It only takes a little lotion to provide relief from dry skin. The lotion glides on smoothly and keeps your hands smooth. I have mostly used it on my hands but have, on occasion, used it as an all-over lotion with good results.

I also liked that the lotion does not have a strong smell to it. There is basically no smell at all. You won't smell like a fruit bowl or smell like you fell into a florist truck after applying this lotion.

The website tells you exactly what is in the lotion so you don't have to worry about any hidden ingredients. They also give descriptions of each of the ingredients so you know what you are putting on your body. Not many companies do that.

Read through some of the user reviews and see some before and after photos to get an idea of how well this lotion works. I have to say that when I clicked on the before and after photos, I was thankful for not having severe dry skin or any medical issues involving my skin. I just get dry, sometimes cracky, skin.

The website does a wonderful job of explaining how the lotion works and why it works and what is in the lotion. Head on over if you have any questions.

If you would like to try some for yourself, you're in luck because I have a 4oz. bottle to give away to one lucky commenter. (Retail Value $25)

To win all you have to do:
  • leave me a comment telling me what lotion you normally use.
  • I will accept comments until 5 pm (est) Friday, Nov. 16.
  • Make sure I can contact you through your blog or leave an email in a way so the spam bots can't get you (youremail at youremail dot com) or something like that.
  • The winner will be posted Friday evening or Saturday afternoon.
  • I will contact the winner through email and be asking for a mailing address.
  • US or Canada residents only please.

I have been using Nature's Gate Skin Therapy lotion from the health food store for years. I like it but since the birth of my second child, my skin has been unbelievably dry and awful. Especially my feet. I never thought I would have a problem with cracking heels but I now have old lady feet and it's nasty...

I would love to see how Skin MD works!

I've been using different Kiehl's face creams, depending on where I'm living in the country! LOL! I moved from NJ to FL so my cream has gotten less moisturizing. :)

The Heller Family said...

I get really dry skin in winter and use Gold Bond Medicated Body Lotion, but it is thick and sticky!

I tend to use a lot of different lotions, but there are a couple that I tend to use - one is an Avon brand and the other is the Tanning Lotion - Glow. I appreciate the giveaway - I'd love to win!

Renae said...

I can't say that I use any particular one. I have many that I use. From Bath and Body Works to good ol' Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter. Whatever's handy! I get horrible cracked skin in the winter and once I get a crack, it's hard to get rid of it. I'm sure this lotion would heal it quick! Thanks for the giveaway!

Becca said...

I thought I was crazy to be using my daughter's J&J baby lotion, but it looks like I'm in good company. Before that I was using Nivea body lotion, but it left my skin feeling a little oily.

Mama Zen said...

I usually use Mary Kay.

Sheila said...

I usually use Aveeno's Intense Relief Hand Cream. So far, it is the only one I have tried that really has helped my dry skin. Perhaps the Skin MD could do a better job!

Jason and Caryn said...

I usually use whatever the hospital has on the floor!

Bree said...

I normally use Jergens, but would love to try this!

Jinki said...

It does sound good. I’m an artist and find that the oils and solvents I use are always drying my hands out and leaving them dry, cracked and sore. This sounds great, especially as it’s non greasy and lasts so long. It seems to be getting some good press too and is worth checking out - Skin MD Natural in the UK. It uses a new advanced scientific proprietary formulation which, apparently, has a moisturizing factor 6 times greater than glycerin, the standard humectant (water absorber) against which all others are measured. It is a shielding lotion which bonds to the skin to keep the irritants out, moisture in and protects the skin in a way a normal moisturizer can’t. Well worth a look.

I like curel!!

EmmyJMommy said...

I normally use Curel, because I have extremely dry skin all year round!

Emily said...

I usually use Bath and Body Works, but I don't think it's doing the trick!

Laura Hetfield said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win!!! I have tried everything!! I just use it until it's gone...then try something new, until I find 'THE ONE'right now I am almost done with curel

Mommy Cracked said...

I normally just use some Bath&Body Works lotion, but this sounds great!

Briggie said...

my son gave me Ginger Souffle by Origins a few years ago which I just love, but I need something that's specially formulated for severely dry skin, this would be nice to try out!

Becky said...

I pretty much use whatever lotion I can find.

Sarah said...

I have terrible hands (especially in the winter). My hands look old, cracked, and sometimes they bleed.

I normally use Aveeno (for sensitive skin) baby brand.

Chief Family Officer said...

I use Aquaphor - not exactly a lotion but wonderful for dryness.

theteo5 said...

i normally use bath and body works, but i have to reapply all the time.

Meldrims said...

The lotion I use is none! Sad huh! I am too lazy to use it and my doctor is on me about it all the time. Now is the time to start!

Michele said...

I use whatever I had a coupon for....and some are terrible

Vaseline healing formula really works great!

In the winter I have to use Gold Bond Medicated on my legs because they get so dry and itchy. Then I use Vaseline Intensive Care on the rest of my body.
