Skin MD Review

Hey Guys,

A few months ago i was sent for review the "Sheilding Lotion" from Skin MD Natural company. Id just like to state that although i was sent this product for review it will not affect my opinion and the outcome of this review. XD

And now onto the review:

This is what Skin MD has to say about their product:
"Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very 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. Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition"

My Results and the general gist of the product:-
While i've been using the lotion i've had some mixed results. Initially it was fantastic, when i used it my skin felt smooth, soft and moisturised. I loved how quickly it soaked into the skin and the almost matte finish i got with. I first started using this every morning before applying my makeup and each night as a night creme. I also used the lotion in really dry areas of my body such as my elbows, knees, hands and feet. Within the first few uses of the lotion i noticed an immediate difference in my skin =D
However, after i moved my skin broke out like crazy and became really greasy - this was NOT from the lotion itself it was from stress and climate change. I stopped using it on my face but i continued to use it on my other dry areas. My skin has finally balanced itself back out since then and im back to using the lotion on my face. I now mainly use it once a day (at night) after i use my cleanser and ive found that even after a nights sleep i wake up and my skin isnt greasy, it feels smooth and clean.
Another thing that i've noticed while using this product is that my skin is breaking out less. Because its a sheilding lotion the "barrier" that it creates on the skin prevents makeup and grime from everyday life from seeping into your pores and clogging them (yaayy!) which in the end improves the condition of your skin

Pricing and Product Amount:-
I was sent a full sized bottle to sample, which is normally $18USD (+ 9.85USD Postage) and you get 120mL, or 4Oz, of product in the bottle. - This will last you a looooong time as you only a small amount to cover a decent area of skin. The lovely folks at Skin MD Natural also created a discount code for my readers, just type in UNLACED in the promo section to recieve 20% off your purchase =D

I dont really have any cons about this poduct - except the pricing is a little steep, but that being said i would still purchase this product again when my bottle runs out because its just fantastic.

Thats it for this review, hope you guys liked it and if you have any questions or know of a similar product let me know in comment
