Product Review: Skin MD Natural

I love trying new products so I was excited to receive a sample of Skin MD Natural to review. I've never heard of it before so I was excited to try a new product, plus I'm always looking for a good moisturizer! The great thing about this product is that its a lotion that you can use for everything - Face, hands and body! which makes this product so super versatile! I use a different lotion for each of those so it was nice to have a product that was good to use everywhere.

Skin MD Natural touted that it was great for not only for those normal skin, but also problem skin conditions such as those with eczema & psoriasis, and an effective anti-aging skin care treatment that helps diminishes wrinkles. It is a shielding lotion, which "special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance". It basically is suppose to bond to the cells of the skin's outer layer and works as a protection against environmental irritants and pollutants, as well as sealing the skin's own natural oils and moisture. It also has a moisturizing factor that is 6x greater than glycerin, which is contained in many skin lotion products. Skin MD Natural is NOT tested on animals, hypoallergenic, fragrance/colorant/paraben free, and dermatology tested. The great thing about this product is that if you do want to try it, there is a 100% guarantee for this product, and you can also get free samples (only have to pay the postage fee $2) on their website!

This is my review of the product after using it for several months:
Generally I liked this product. My skin gets very dry in the winter months, so initially using, I didn't really like it because it gave me a weird after-feel on my skin (most likely due to the aloe), but once I kept applying it every night, my skin adjusted to the product and it really did give me good moisture to my skin especially as the the weather got better. When my skin is extremely dry, I still felt like it wasn't my end all product, but it was a decent overall product. I also realized that I didn't need to glob on so much, a little really goes a long way. I really liked the fact I could use it on my face and hands!

The texture of the product had a thinner feel to it, it wasn't a thick creamy lotion, but more like a water based aloe texture. It reminded me a little of Clinique Moisture Surge type of feel if you have ever tried that moisturizer before, but a little stickier. I don't have eczema or any serious skin conditions so I cannot comment on its use with those conditions, but there are many testimonials on their websites and even some before and after pictures. With anti-aging effects, I haven't noticed anything dramatic, but I also do not have any deep wrinkles. I also liked the SPF moisturizer better than the one without SPF... plus SPF is always needed on a daily basis! The SPF moisturizer had a much lighter feel than most creamy based moisturizers with SPF, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised by it and it didn't have as much of that aloe feel that the original has. Overall this is a good moisturizer that comes in SPF (which is SUPER important!) and I would definitely give the SPF moisturizer a try over the regular one, especially if you are looking for a new lighter, non-greasy moisturizer!

OMG, you won't believe what i heard on the radio today. I heard an ad for MD Natural moisturizer! The best thing about this product is that you can use it anywhere on your body. It's nice to be able to use it on your hands, my other face moisturizers were never thick enough. I'm adding you to my blog roll, and I'm surprised I'm not already a follower. Thanks for the review!

Thanks for the great review! I much prefer to read actually reviews before I look into a new-to-me product. This one sounds lovely -- I will keep my eye out.

Hope you're having a lovely week!
