The skin on my hands and feet are always the most dry, especially during cold days. I've been applying the lotion once daily for about a week and do notice a difference. With continued use, the chapping and redness from skin allergies are slowly diminishing and restored my skin's moisture. It's a bit pricey, but it does prove to be effective. Skin MD Natural prevents dry skin with a silky smooth hydrating shield. Even though the lotion says for face, it makes my face feel oily and shiny-looking so I only use for arms and legs and body.
It's nice that it is fragrance-free (just only a slight scent of the sunscreen) since I am quite sensitive to strong-smelling perfumed lotions. I also like that the Skin MD lotion is safe for children to use, especially for my 2-year-old son. He has sensitive skin and has eczema. I wasn't sure if the lotion would give him a reaction, but it's been working quite well.
The Lotion wasn't too runny. I'm not a fan of runny kind. It was actually creamy and can be easily applied without dripping. It's also non-greasy and absorbs quickly. The 4oz bottle was a great size to put in my bag for on-the-go and/or for traveling.
About Shielding Lotion:
There are thousands of skin irritants in our modern environment that didn't exist even 50 years ago. These irritants can strip the protective barrier off your skin causing dry skin, eczema and other skin problems. This brings about the need for a new type of dry skin care solution – Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.
Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemcials and irritants break down the skin's natural protective ability, and strip away moisture, while other lodge in the pores causing irritation and other negative reactions.
Unfortunately, conventional lotions have one basic goal - to simply make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an external source of moisture. Many common household products and even soaps are absorbed directly into your skin, causing skin disorders or just plain dry, cracked skin. Also, when participating in activities from gardening to painting, furniture restoration to fishing, or any exposure to harsh weather you are further drying and irritating your skin.
Using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion adds an extra layer of hydrating protection to skin that helps prevent the absorption of irritants and chemicals that are responsible for dry, cracked skin.
- unbeatable lasting moisture without irritation
- restore skin's healthy natural appearance
- find relief from tough to handle skin conditions
