WIN!! Skin MD Face, Hand, and Body Shielding Lotion Giveaway & Review

If I am going to review a product on my blog, I like to be sure that it works well.  That is why I have been testing Skin MD Natural's Face, Hand, & Body Shielding Lotion for eight weeks now (yup, two whole months).

I have notoriously dry skin, especially on my hands and during the winter, on my face as well.  My hands get so dry that cracks actually form all over them - it is quite terrible.  This problem is only perpetuated by the fact that I polish my nails so often - using that polish remover strips all the natural oils from my fingers, cuticles, and nails.

Skin MD sent me a bottle of their Face, Hand, & Body Shielding Lotion to try out.  I began using it around January 20th.  Initially, I applied a dime-sized amount every few hours, but after the first few days, I only used it twice a day - in the morning and at night.

The lotion is extremely lightweight and absorbs quickly - which is a huge plus.  The main reason I don't wear lotion very often is because I end up walking around like a zombie - hands stuck out in front of me - because I feel like I can't touch anything.  Because Skin MD absorbs instantly, I can get back to my life right after applying it.  That means I can keep typing on my keyboard without making the keys greasy, I can straighten my hair without worrying about weighting it down (a huge plus!), and I can get dressed without fear of leaving lotion marks on my clothing (yes, this has happened to me before with other lotions).

Skin MD is also an excellent moisturizer.  The product is described as "far more effective than conventional moisturizers" and I must agree.  It soaks into skin and really does moisturize well.  Like I said, I have been using this for nearly two months now and I have noticed a huge difference in the texture and suppleness of my skin.  Skin MD "promptly absorbs, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield" allowing "regeneration [to be] fully realized with a few days."   I have been very impressed with how well Skin MD moisturized my extremely dry skin over these last 8 weeks.  Plus, even using it twice daily, I have not finished one 4 oz bottle.  Also, it has no smell (I can't stand scented lotions), so I've been very happy about that.  I can pull it out and put it on while I'm teaching or out to eat and I'm not stuck sitting in a cloud of fragrance because there is no smell whatsoever.  I also tried it on my face and it worked great.  No breakouts and excellent moisturizing.

My father, a contractor who spends a large part of his day outside building, stopped by my house one day in January.  He saw my Skin MD sitting out and asked if he could use some.  The next day he called me raving about it - he said he loved how it had absorbed into his skin so quickly (what kind of man wants lotiony, greasy hands?) and he was amazed by how moisturized his hands were from it.  So for his February birthday, I got him two bottles of Skin MD Face, Hand, and Body Shielding Lotion.  One with sunscreen (for the days he is working outside) and one without.

Another thing I LOVE about Skin MD Natural?  Their products are NEVER tested on animals, and their are no animals products hidden inside the bottle.  That means they are totally vegan friendly.  They are also free of fragrance and colorants, have no paraben, plus they have been dermatologist tested and are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.  That means that Skin MD not only works well, but it is the kind of stuff you can feel good about putting on your skin.

Oh my! What a cool prize. I have super dry hands in the winter (I wash my hands a lot, and my current moisturizer isn't a great one, although I love that it's not heavily scented since I dislike scented lotions for the most part).

Thanks for the opportunity & yet another awesome giveaway, Brooke! :)
