In January we gave away free samples of Skin MD Lotion to 8 lucky ladies. They spent the last couple months testing the product and here are their thoughts…
What our readers have to say about Skin MD
I LOVE IT!!!
I really felt that I had a shield of protection on my hands. I wash my hands constantly & have a horrible habit of biting my cuticles – mostly when they are dry. So this product helped me to leave them alone. I think I may have overused the product, as I only started using it the middle of the month & it is already gone! But I can’t wait to get my hands on more!
Thanks again for allowing me to test this amazing product.
I enjoyed the product on my face. I felt it was light and moisturizing. It felt slightly sticky when I first started using it, but after a while it was fine. I am very hard on my hands. I wash them probably 20 times a day at work. The lotion just couldn’t keep up with my vigorous hand washing. It is probably good for normal hands, but I need something more intense. Thanks for the opportunity to try this product.
My digital camera is not working so I was unable to take a photo. Here are the pros & cons from my experience:
What I liked:
* Easy to apply, dries/absorbs fast
* Softens & moisturizes skin very well
* Lasts longer than most creams & lotions I’ve tried
* Natural ingredients
* A little bit goes a long way
What I didn’t like:
* The product smells like a first aid application rather than a lotion or moisturizer
* No SPF (isn’t it supposed to be a skin protectant?)
* After applying, my skin felt a little sticky
Skin MD was effective as a moisturizer when used daily, but I have used a few other products that work at least as well. I might pay $7 to $8 for this product (this size) but I have a feeling they would market it for a much higher price. Let me know if you need any further info. Thank you!
SKIN MD was given to me by my employer, Sue Edgington, because she has seen the condition of my hands over the past couple of years and has been concerned about their appearance ( and the discomfort they caused me ). I am a compulsive hand washer and my fingers would break open and bleed. The outsides of my hands would become so dry and cracked that it was often painful to close my hands ( make a fist ). Even my palms and the skin around my knuckles would crack and bleed. I have been using SKIN MD for about three weeks and am amazed at the difference in how my hands look – and feel. I was embarrassed to let people see my hands before SKIN MD – and if I needed to shake hands the recipient of the hand shake often commented on the condition of my ” rough ” skin.
Thank you SKIN MD ( and Sue ) !!!!
The lotion is wonderful! I have never found another lotion that helps my exema as well. Its light and is absorbed quickly. It’s not greasy. I even used it on a really dry patch on my face and it cleared up the rash within days with no breakout. Everything else I have tried was either really greasy and caused breakouts or wasn’t hydrating enough for my extra dry skin. I am sold sold sold on this lotion and will always keep some on hand. Thank you so much for letting me give it a try!!
I used it on my face, hands and feet. I found that it worked well to combat dry “winter hands” when I was out shopping. It wasn’t effective on my feet though. Even if I used it 4-6x a day, my feet were still rough and picky. I ended up slathering them in a thick shea butter lotion and my feet were 75% the next morning.
I was impressed with the lotion after putting it on my face. I had a cold last month and my nose was quite dry from blowing it so much (I ran out of Puffs Plus tissues). I slathered my poor little nose with the lotion and it was immediately better! I also tried it on my entire face as an overall moisturizer and was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t get an acne breakout from it. Super!
My husband agreed to test the lotion as well. He has really dry hands from washing them at work all the time, so he started putting it on every morning and evening. We didn’t see a huge improvement at first, but after a week it looked like his hands were getting softer and smoother. And it definitely improved the condition of his cuticles and fingernails.
So all in all, I personally think it’s great to carry in my purse and put on my hands while I’m out and about during the winter time. To me, that’s the way it was the most effective and useful. I’m going to continue to use it during the summer with gardening etc and see if it continues to help!
