Great Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion - A Giveaway

my GiveAway

Using body lotion and face moisturizer is my daily routine. I live mostly in air conditioned room. So I need to ensure that I keep my skin moisturized to avoid the dryness and aging. About three weeks ago, I got a great offering from a representative of Skin MD Company, Cat Doss, to review their product. Ms. Doss explained to me that she would give me a full sized bottle of a product called Shielding Lotion. What a lovely offering!

Now, the lotion has arrived safely in my hand. Even she put three samples together in my package.

Product Name: Shielding Lotion
Brand: Skin MD Natural
Size: 120ml/4oz
Feature: Can be used all over body, face, hands, and feet.

Here is the product description:
Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion that helps the skin restores its integrity and enhances its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance. It works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while locking in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping heal dry skin, leaving skin feeling silky and smooth.

The lotion itself is made in the US using high quality natural ingredients making it over 90% all natural. All ingredients are considered to be of food grade and are also on the FDA's most safe list. It is free of harmful fragrances, parabens, and colorants making it hypoallergenic and dermatologist recommended. They also don't test the products in animal nor does the lotion contain any animal products.

Deionized water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Aloe Vera), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Methyl Gluceth-20, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Arnica Montana Flower Extract (Arnica), Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract (Comfrey), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract (Chamomile), Achillea Millefolium Extract (Yarrow), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, 1,2 Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol

The company even list out detail description on each key ingredient (see here). So we may be sure about ingredients contained inside the product.

Now, sharing you my personal review
The lotion is stored in simple plastic bottle with red lid to seal and keep it hygienic. The texture is white, sheer, lightweight, and scentless. Well, it still has mild scent, but I notice that it comes from the ingredients’ natural odor.

I mostly apply the lotion on my face. I usually pump two drops to cover my whole face. It feels so light, absorbs easily, and applies evenly. Plus, it leaves no sticky or greasy residue behind.

I have been using the lotion as my moisturizer for about two weeks and the result is so amazing! I find my skin become visibly softer, elastic, and I get fewer breakouts! I used to get few bumps along my jaw line after a whole day activity. My face was also so sticky and oily in the afternoon and evening. I now recognize that the problems come from the wrong moisturizer which leads me to sticky and greasy face instead of keep the skin hydrated. But using the Shielding Lotion which seals natural moisture inside my skin, my face appears better. Even the BB cream sits on perfectly. I find no dry patches, feels so light, and the best is my skin becomes supple and I rarely find breakout.

I still get the area around my nose and cheek become oily after some hours, but the oil disappears after I use blotting sheet and it doesn’t feel sticky. Besides, wrinkles under my eyes have been reduced. I’m so in love with this lotion and I’m sure I will see more improvements soon.

Do you want it for free? The Skin MD will gladly share this great product for you as well.

I really want to try the Shielding Lotion because of reviews I've read, especially yours. I have sensitive skin that is constantly breaking out, and you mention that it helps with your acne, and I'd love that. I also get dry, peely spots on my face because of the prescription topicals I use, and it sounds like the lotion could really help with those, too.

hi sis, count me in, I'm one of your followers=)

honestly, the reason what makes me want to try the shielding lotion is simply because I'm sick and tired searching for a good product that will work on my super sensitive, combination type of skin. You know the feeling of expecting something on the product but only dissapoints you in the end?***sigh**
and your review makes me drool about it too hahaha=)

anyway, here's the link of my post about your giveaway,thank you and take care always=)

My skin was very dry and rough earlier. But after using Aloe Vera Moisturizing Lotion, I have actually forgotten what rough and dry skin feels like. An amazing product.
