Skin MD Natural Review and Giveaway.
I have been using Skin MD Natural Original for the last couple of months. I had never heard of this product before I was contacted by Skin MD Natural. I love trying new things and I love to tell people what I think so I quickly agreed.
Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion that allows your skin to restore it's protective layer. Each and every day you put lotions, makeup, fragrance and cleansers on your skin. These contain ingredients that rid your skin of the important layers that protect you. Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion designed to duplicate our own protective barrier.
Skin MD Natural is different than other lotions because it doesn't contain inexpensive ingredients like petroleum and allows your own natural oils to be retained. It also lasts a long time. You should only need to apply a little bit once or twice a day unless treating a dry skin condition. This allows your own body to aid itself.
How is this lotion natural? I don't usually look twice at a product that proclaims it is natural because there is no regulation regarding the definition. I see this word quite a bit on hardly natural products. Skin MD Natural has defined their lotion as 93% natural. Anything not natural is food or medical grade safe. The lotions are vegan, cruelty free, eco-friendly, free of parabens, petrochemicals, dyes and other irritants. I really liked to hear that it is manufactured in the USA using 100% solar power. No animal testing either.
I noticed right away (I'm talking within minutes here) that it left my skin feeling silky and soft. Not greasy at all. I had read some of the reviews of the Skin MD Natural site and was a little skeptical. They were right, though. I don't care for heavy lotions that leave your skin greasy feeling until they are absorbed. I even went as far as to use this on my face under my makeup. I didn't break out like I usually do. I even think that it felt like a foundation primer. It made my mineral makeup effortlessly go on. I LOVED that it dried in about 30 seconds flat. No more waiting for lotions to dry to go onto the next step in my beauty routine. There was no strong scent to this lotion either.
There was little I disliked about this product. I did notice hours later that when it came time to do the dishes that my hands felt slimy after they became wet, but I realize that technically this was good. It meant the lotion was doing it's job. I liked everything about it except I can't seem to find it in stores in my area, but can order it through most drugstores or the Skin MD Natural site. It is also a little pricey in my book, but if you shop around you can find better deals on it than directly ordering from the Skin MD Natural website.
