Skin M.D.~ my review

Skin MD lotion is described as the Ultimate Dry Skin Solution. It's a natural skin care product designed especially to act as a barrier. As someone who has had dry skin for years, I was happy to try it. Here's what the Skin MD site says:

A Shielding Lotion is far more effective as a dry skin care treatment than mere moisturizing lotions or protective creams. If you suffer from dry skin, you know that just using a moisturizing lotion doesn't solve the problem.Skin MD Natural™ is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield.

I'll admit, the part about it being absorbed without any residue was absolutely true. I had the distinct feeling that the lotion was clean and pure, not slimy and oily like other products I've tried.

Outside of the clean feeling, though, I can't say too much about the product- it seemed to absorb into my skin and then disappear completely. If I put it on at night, by morning my arms and legs felt dry again. I did not have the itch I sometimes get from other products (I have sensitive skin), but, I also didn't have the moisturized feeling that my regular lotion leaves me feeling. So, for me, this wasn't a great improvement over my usual products.
