Skin MD Natural Review & Giveaway...

I have very dry skin.  In the summer time it seems to get worse for me and putting on drying sunscreens only aggravates the situation further.  I was very excited when I was sent Skin MD Natural's Shielding Lotion SPF 15 to try out.    Here is a bit about this sunscreen from the Skin MD website...

Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 is a sunscreen that gently cares for your skin while protecting it from excessive sun radiation. Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 is far more effective in the treatment and protection of dry skin than mere moisturizing lotions or protective creams.


It is promptly absorbed without the heavy "sunscreen" smell, it's free of many of the potentially harmful chemicals in other sunscreen products, and doesn't leave the slightest hint of greasy, oily residue.

Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 has a proven UVA protection factor of 5+ (over 5 times greater than the skin's own protection) while the UVB protection is 15+. SPF 15 filters 92% of the UVB rays and delays the onset of sunburn by up to 150 minutes.

Making Skin MD Natural a daily part of your skin care routine will help protect against sunburn and the signs of premature aging, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. Active sunscreens combined with nourishing Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Arnica, Comfrey, Chamomile, and Yarrow keep skin silky smooth and hydrated.

This all sounded perfect but would it stand up to my testing?  It sure did!  Right away I loved how it did not have an overpowering smell or a greasy feeling at all.  The sunscreen was absorbed right away and my skin felt silky smooth.  I have been wearing the sunscreen during the sunniest days of summer and have yet to get a sunburn. I have also noticed that some of my very dry spots have cleared right up! So, for me, the Shielding Lotion not only protected me from the sun but also made my skin look better!  Super...a sunscreen that improves your skin too!

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion retails for $18 per bottle.  This is on the pricier side but I think it is completely reasonable given it serves not only as an excellent sunscreen but also as a great dry skin lotion.  You can purchase your own bottle here.

Here's what I learned.

According to Dr. Helton, shielding lotions help prevent damage to the skin by bonding with and protecting the skin. "They not only add moisture, but also help stop the loss of your natural moisture."

I learned that this is a shielding lotion and has an ingredient different than glycerin. I know that glycerin is in everything so I'd be curious to try this product out and compare it to other lotions.
