Blog-o-versary Giveaway #1: Win A Bottle Of Skin MD Natural Lotion *CLOSED*


Awhile ago Skin MD Natural sent me a bottle of their Face, Hand, and Body Shielding Lotion (and some packets of the same lotion with sunscreen SPF 15 in it) to try out.  I was super excited because my son (age 12) has a very dry spot on his leg that we have tried everything on without luck and so I am constantly looking for something new to help him.

When we smelled the lotion (because no one wants to wear stinky lotion) it had a nice light gentle smell......kind of reminded me of baby products.  I used it on my hands and the skin seemed to absorb it fairly quick and it made my hands feel kind of silky.  My son used it on the dry spot on his leg and although it didn't make it go away it did make it look a lot better (it looked more like a bruise than a dry spot).

As for the lotion with the SPF in it, I am most excited about this because all I have to do is "think" sun and I can get a sunburn.  I feel that any extra protection is great and I love the fact that it is in the lotion.  I am more likely to remember to put on lotion than I am sunblock.  =0(

You can currently purchase a 4 oz. bottle of the Skin MD Natural lotion for $18 ($25 for the one with SPF 15 in it) on their site.

  1. Skin MD is over 93% natural and contains no parabens, petrochemicals, or dyes. They are also vegan. :) Which is a big bonus in my mind.

  2. Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemicals and irritants can break down the skin's natural protective ability.
