Quite a while ago now, I was sent the skin MD natural shielding lotion for reviewing purposes. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but I suffer with really bad eczema from the top to the bottom of both my legs, this has been a problem for as long as I can remember and I am forever trying out new creams, ointments and lotions. The people at Skin MD say that not only can the shielding lotion enhance your skins hydrating and protective abilities but it is also used and prescribed by dermatologists so I was particularly interested in testing it out.
Right so here is the shielding lotion pictured below, I was sent a 120ml bottle which is priced at £14.99
The first thing I was really pleased to find is that the lotion is fragrance free - my skin is so sensitive I cannot put anything with ever so much of a hint of fragrance anywhere near it. It has quite a light, thin consistancy which makes it really quick and easy to apply. I was so impressed with how quickly this lotion sinks into your skin, it is almost instantly absorbed and does not leave a greasy residue which I often find with moisturisers. This makes it a great product to grab if you are in a hurry (which I always am!). I find this to be really soothing where my eczema is particularly sore. It also leaves my skin feeling hydrated for a considerable amount of time, I can apply it in the morning and quite happily go about my business for the day without feeling like my skin is drying out or needs a top up.
I can highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers with dry skin, I find it effective, easy to use, and unlike else I have seen on the market.
