Skin MD Natural – Review {Giveaway Closed}

January 21, 2011

I would have to start this post by saying that I have truly been blessed with my skin.  I typically have great skin – and I’ve never really pampered it too much.  Although – living in MN, the dry winter really gets to my nose and forehead areas. My nose gets all flakey and peely and right between my brows, the same.  It is the worst when I am just getting out of the shower! So winter is typically the only time when I do any skin care routine.  I’m pretty sure in the last year, I have washed my face before bed about… once? Maybe twice. 

So most of the time my face requires almost no attention at all, which is VERY good, considering that I am also allergic to many skin care products.  I have never had luck with moisturizers or especially just plain lotions (which are very bad for me..) anything from Mary Kay, Avon, and Bath and Body Works – I’m pretty much allergic to them all. I’m even allergic to the touch of laundry detergents, including Dreft!  But I use Dreft and Tide because they rinse out well. Ivory Dish Soap?? Forget it!  So It’s been complicating to find a good skin care product that I’m not allergic to, but does the job of moisturizing my skin enough for me to put my make-up on and not show flakes!

Therefore, I jumped on the idea of sampling a product for Skin MD Natural.  It has ‘the finest natural ingredients together with a quantum advance in skin hydration’.  Skin MD Natural helps the inner layers of your skin absorb moisture, as well as a shielding lotion that gets the top layer of your skin resistant to environmental irritants to keep the inner layer of skin moisturized.

I love that it is all-natural, hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, paraben’s and colorants! Meaning that I probably won’t react to it (and I don’t)! It is made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on the FDA’s “most safe” list.
My favorite part of this lotion is that you can feel the difference. Right away. I can tell exactly where the lotion has been applied because I can feel the difference.  It is not greasy or oily like many lotions I’ve tried. I just put it on my hands as I was typing this up, and I am not oily at all and not worried about rubbing it in excessively before touching my nice new keyboard J I am able to put my make-up on immediately after applying the lotion to my face, and it makes it so smooth to apply the makeup – and I use the Bare Minerals make-up, so the smoother it is, the less powder I have to use to fill in the gaps!
You can click the banner to get a free sample sent to you – or you can just buy it now, because I’m positive you’re going to love it (and the price is great too at only $18!

  40. I did learn that Every day your skin is bombarded by chemicals and irritants that strip away the skin's natural protective barrier. Most soaps and cleansers contain fragrances, colorants, antibacterial agents and many other ingredients that damage the skin's natural barrier. Daily use of these soaps and cleansers can greatly reduce your skin's natural ability to repel the thousands of irritants and toxins that are commonly found in the home and work place. Applying a shielding lotion will keep skin hydrated and protected against irritants that cause dry skin.

    Conventional dry skin lotions don't protect against the causes of dry skin and have only one basic goal – to make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an artificial source of moisture. Replace your old dry skin lotion with Skin MD Natural lotion for naturally healthy skin
