A few months ago, I was sent a bottle of Skin MD lotion and a few sample packs of Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 to review. While I almost always have a review post up within 2 weeks, I wanted to give this lotion a good testing before reviewing it. After these few months, I can say without hesitation that I LOVE this lotion.
“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.
Skin MD Natural works differently by helping keep moisture-robbing irritants away thus enhancing the skin’s inherent ability to moisturize itself. This easy-to-apply, fast-absorbing lotion helps protect against many household, cosmetic and other commonly used products that can lead to skin disorders or just plain dry cracked skin.”
I currently have a triple threat when it comes to my skin: Winter weather, living in dry Arizona, AND having a baby requiring frequent diaper changes and hand washing. Needless to say, my skin can get very dry and chapped.
The first time I tried Skin MD, I was immediately surprised at how well it worked! When you have dry, cracked or chapped skin, you know how painful putting on lotions with chemicals and fragrances can be! Being free of fragrances and harsh chemicals, I did not experience the horrible burning when I applied this lotion to my hands. Also, I hate to feel slimy and greasy after I apply lotion. This lotion soaks in almost instantly and does not leave a slime behind. My skin felt so smooth after applying!
I had a lotion I used nightly on my hands, but it wasn’t giving me the results I wanted. It didn’t hurt to put on, and it did help my skin feel moisturized at first, but within a period of about an hour my skin was back to being dry and chapped again! I’d reapply each time I got up at night to feed the baby, yet I’d still wake up with dry skin. The very first night I used Skin MD I woke up and went to the counter ready to put on more lotion, and stopped short when I discovered my skin still felt moisturized and silky smooth! My hands felt moisturized even after frequent washes! And it lasted all.night.long!
I am very sensitive to fragrances. Skin MD is free of perfumes, yet still has a light, natural refreshing scent.
I have also had a very difficult time finding a lotion that I can use on my face without breaking out. I have used this lotion on my face regularly and have yet to get any acne from it. Finally!
Another thing I love about this lotion is how long the bottle has lasted me. Because of the ingredients in it, a pea size amount is all you need to moisturize your hands! I have been using this lotion almost daily for the past few months, as well as letting my kids use it, and the 4 oz bottle I have is still at least half full!
I love the Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 too. It’s just as amazing as the regular lotion, with an added bonus of SPF 15! Like the original lotion, it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft without feeling greasy. It is so important to properly protect our skin when out in the sun, and this lotion makes it easy. Use it as a regular moisturizer and have the comfort of knowing your skin is being protected from the sun as well!
Skin MD has become my favorite, go-to lotion. I use it more regularly than I’ve ever used lotion, and I love that my skin always feels soft and silky without the greasy feeling. It soaks in quickly, yet leaves a soft barrier on the top of my skin that lasts!
