Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion - Review


Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion

A shielding lotion does much more than just treat dry skin.
Skin MD Natural™
is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling
or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible
shield.


The Consistency

This is an entirely new concept in skin care requiring a new classification:
"Shielding Lotion". A shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away
from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin
throughout the day.


Dry Knees


After Using the Lotion
How I used this:
Everyday on my hands and body (AM and PM)
Duration: 6 Weeks
On my guest: 2 days (AM and PM) on affected areas.

I used it on my face and my initial reaction was its sticky!!! But wait for a minute and it dries completely to an invisible mask like thing. Its soft and smooth and barely even felt on skin. Its soo light that I didn’t feel like I am wearing anything on face.
This contains Glycerin, which is a sweet tasting liquid with high Viscosity.

Glycerin has been the standard against which all humectants
are measured. Until now no other humectant drew in as much moisture from the air
as glycerin. But the proprietary formulation in Skin MD Natural has a
moisturizing factor of at least 6 times greater than glycerin. Combined with its
protective properties and natural ingredients, this makes Skin MD Natural a
truly unique product.

Before (notice the crusty knees)


After using the lotion

The consistency of the lotion is slightly on the liquidy side. It’s a while cloudy gel, but more on thinner side. It spreads and blends easily and is immediately absorbed into the skin. I like that it does not leaves the face oily. This even reduced some of my pores on face and infact acted like a primer, something like the pore perfecting primer by the Urban Decay. These two are similar in consistency too.
I didn’t use it much on my face later because I started with the whole Korres regimen. On my hands and body, it was perfect. It sure does hydrates a lot and I like the fact that its not greasy. True to its name its shielding.


Dry Hands


Smooth and soft...seriously it works dude...

The smell is not funky. It’s a smells almost like nothing, difficult to describe, but whatever it is its soothing to the nose. This one does not contains any SPF, but the brand does has another one containing some SPF in them.

The packaging:
The packaging is fine, though a pump would had been better.
Cost wise, its $18 for 120ml/4 oz, which is ok, if applied on face alone. Clinique’s DDML costs $22 without the pump for 125 ml/4.2 oz. I would say the cost is comparable and the performance better.
If I have to use it on my face and body, I would say it’s a bit more on steep side, because I will run out of it pretty quickly.

One good use I found for this is for my son. He is 5 yrs old and has this habit of playing on carpets, with his knee bent and ends up with lots of rashes, scratches and discoloration. My doctor suggested just adequate moisturizing. I was using Eucerin., that was working, no doubt.. but this did heal a lot. They claim it works on eczema, which I didn’t get a chance to test, because I didn’t find anyone with eczema. It does work wonders on dry and very dry skin.

I think it worth giving a try. I am thankful to the company for providing me with this sample. I would have not purchased on my own, simply because I tend to be victim of hype and as of now this is not hyped…The bottle is not fancy, but who cares fancy bottle bottles for lotions!! If it’s a fragrance, fancy bottles do make sense in my book….

The pictures above are the pictures of knees and hands of ‘somebody’. Name with held to protect identity. But you can see the difference and its just 2 days of application.

DISCLAIMER: This was sent to me for consideration., which means I can try it and review it if I want to. Just because it was free, does not means, it will be treated differently than every other product I review. Its my personal experience with the product. If it works for me, doesn't means it may work for you and vice-versa.
