“I’ve been using Skin MD in place of my normal facial lotion for about 1 1/2 weeks now. I LOVE IT!!! My face feels so soft to the touch. It makes me glow. Seriously! The past week I just wash my face in the morning and apply the lotion and go. I don’t even bother with make-up!!!”
“I was surprised that the Shielding Lotion™ is for your face too. I am very careful about what I put on my face, because I have such a strange complexion. Part dry, part oily, never “just right”. I have spent years abusing my skin, using harsh treatments to try to combat acne and sun damage. I avoid moisturizer on my face because that seems counter productive to drying up my skin. So I tried the Shielding Lotion™ on my face with much apprehension. I was pleasantly surprised. Because it’s so light, I never got that oily shine on my face. It did not cause my face to break out, and the area under my eyes felt softer and looked refreshed.”
“I had a customer come back in recently that had a bad skin problem and was breaking out from other lotions she was trying in order to get some relief from a bad dry skin problem she had. I gave her some samples of Skin MD and she came back in to get a bottle a couple of days later. Then, she came back into the store to buy another bottle for a friend of hers to whom she had raved about it. She thanked me for leading her to your product. I don’t promote products I don’t believe in but yours is great, so… thanks again.”
“Skin MD keeps the moisture in and repairs the skin. I have been applying it to my face and it is amazingly much smoother. You should yell about this product from the roof tops and everyone should have some.”

“I am absolutely thrilled with the results of the Skin MD Shielding Lotion™. My dermatologist, Dr, Jill Mines, in Camarillo, CA gave some samples to me 2 weeks ago. I was recovering from skin cancer treatment of my ears and bridge of my nose after using the Carac cream, similar to Efudex. My ears were pretty sore, red, cracks, even a bit bloody in spots with some scabbing. I usually get treated with a steroid or cortisone cream but she suggested your product since it may be gentler. Well, to my amazement, my ears and nose healed up in 2 days with 90% improvement after the first day and that was with only one application of your product. I have since used it on a cat scratch on my leg and other cuts.
Your lotion is by far the best product I have ever used for healing properties! I sent a sample to my sister in CT and to my Dad in PA, who is 81, as he has trouble healing.
Thanks so much for making it available to the public! I am 48 years old now and have used many ointments, antibiotics, creams, lotions, etc., but this products beats them all, even the straight up Aloe plant. I was using Bacitracin and Polysporin on my ears for a week with no luck. The Skin MD penetrated right in and went to work. For my skin medical needs, my first line of choice will be Skin MD!!!
Thanks a million to you and your staff!!!
P.S. I find the product works better on a current wound then one with a deep, established scab. Applying it after a shower when the skin is warm and more permeable works better on established wound with a significant scab.”
“I love using lotion, but all too often, I end up with one that makes my hands feel sticky, has a cloying scent, or both. I normally use Lubriderm Unscented, and it works okay. Nothing special. I was skeptical about Skin MD, because it came with a ton of literature about how fabulous it is. I don’t know why, but literature about how fabulous your product is always makes me skeptical.
I tried the lotion and found it had a very, very light scent and didn’t make my hands feel sticky. So far, so good. But what I noticed that was even more interesting was the fact that it made my hands appear less wrinkly. Ever since I was a teenager I have lamented my wrinkly looking hands. Something about this lotion makes your wrinkles less noticeable, and just for that, I’d buy it.
I noticed it said for face, hand, and body. So I tried it in place of my usual moisturizer. Now, this is during my usual breakout time of the month, and I was concerned that it would make my breakout worse. No need to have worried, I had one pimple, which is about the same as my usual breakout when using the Clinique moisturizer. As far as how well it worked, I’d say it was better in reducing the crow’s feet around my eyes than the Clinique.
I have excessively dry legs and feet, and the Skin MD did such a good job I was able to skip a day when I had to drive to Indiana and my legs and feet didn’t get ashy on me like they normally would.
Skin MD is a great product. A little goes a very long way, so a bottle would last a long time. It’s great for anyone on body and hands, but is better for people with dry skin as a facial moisturizer.”
“I am a 43 year old single mother who has been suffering for years with Rosacea, to the point I had sores on my face. I was embarrassed to go out in public, and people even asked me what was wrong with face. I spent hundreds of dollars a year in just copays for dermatologist prescribed medicine for years, and it slowly was fail again. I was at a loss as to what to do.
One day I found your product and I used the tester on my hands. It felt wonderful, so I got a bottle. I read about your lotion, and decided to try it on my face. In less than a week my face cleared up to the point my family noticed, and being teenagers, they do not notice much. After two weeks scares that had been there for years where clearing up.
My 18 year old nephew suddenly started having breakouts. I bought him a bottle and his face is clearing up. I feel like we are addicted to this lotion! I look like I have not looked since my teens. I will be on a one woman crusade to spread the word of this miracle lotion. Thank you for making me look normal again.”
“Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ is a great product to apply before putting on your makeup, and it can also be used on your hands and other parts of the body. It has enough moisture in it to cure dry feet, yet it is still gentle enough to apply on your face. It does not leave my skin feeling oily, but instead it is silky and smooth.”
“After great results on my hands I decided to brave trying it on my face – yeah the bottle says “Hand, Body & Face”, but I’ve got sensitive skin that either gets too dry or breaks out. So I was totally surprised with the perfect balance I found.”

“Sure enough, the product delivers as advertised. You only need to use a tiny bit, and it’s absorbed very quickly. The whole concept of a Shielding Lotion™ was new to me, but I do like the idea of protecting my skin from irritants. Since I swim in a heavily chlorinated pool regularly, I was curious if this stuff would really protect my skin from the harsh chlorine. I’ve tried it out on my face before swimming, and I do believe this product makes a difference. After using this lotion, my face doesn’t feel eaten alive or chapped from the chlorine, as it sometimes does. I guess it is actually shielding me!”
“Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ is an amazing moisturizing lotion that can be used on any part of your body from face to feet to hands to legs. This product works differently in comparison to other moisturizers in that is uses a shielding method where the lotion helps to moisturize and then locks in moisture to rebalance your skin’s natural moisture. It’s important to follow the directions, because you do not need very much product to do a full application. I have been using this mostly for my face and feet, and this lotion really does work to reduce overall dryness and requires me to use it less and less over time. Users are recommended to apply the product to skin every four to eight hours for the first few days to a week, and then users can taper off the frequency of their applications as their skin adjusts and starts to moisturize itself.
I absolutely love how lightweight it is, and it absorbs incredibly quickly – even better. It makes a great hand lotion to minimize dryness because there is no oily residue or slippery feeling left minutes later. Really, the lotion absorbs in less than a few minutes. Skin MD is also hypoallergenic, not tested on animals, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free. I love fragrance-free lotions when it comes to my face, so this is definitely on my list of top three facial lotions. This is one product I very much endorse and hold out as a miracle worker when it comes to aiding dry skin.”

“I was encouraged and excited about this new, smooth skin thing. But I wondered if it were a fluke. I kept applying and after a week or so, became convinced something magical was indeed going on. I started applying a light dab to each cheek (I have oily, problem skin with a tendency to break out, so I’m VERY reluctant to put any lotion on). No problems. Then, I wondered about the skin under my eyes. The label reads, for “Face, Hand, & Body,” so why not? I’m already happy with my nighttime under-eye cream (I use Juliet’s, available on eBay), but could a shielding lotion be layered over an effective cream to seal it in and intensify it? The answer was immediately clear the next morning. Yes, yes, yes.
For one month, I’ve been using SkinMD, and I’m delighted in every way. No breakouts. Smooth, peachy, crepe-free skin. Soft, touchable, more youthful skin.”
Q: “Anyone know of some face paint that doesn’t make your face itch? I’m going to be a mime for Halloween. Therefore, I have to paint my entire face. I’m worried that the paint will get irritating or itchy. Anyone know of a certain brand that doesn’t itch?”
A: “I’m not sure of which brands, but check the ingredients in the makeup here: www.cosmeticsdatabase.com first and then be SURE to apply moisturizer to your face before the makeup goes on. This will help provide a barrier to keep the mime makeup from sinking into your pores. You could even try a barrier skin lotion like Skin MD (which is what I’m going to wear under my Geisha makeup for Halloween).”
“There’s this supa cool moisturizing lotion out on the market now. And it’s like none other. Have you heard of Skin MD? If not, listen up.
The product is milky white, feels very light, and is quickly absorbed by the skin. And the first time I put this stuff on my hands, I was amazed. My hands felt softer and smoother after just one use. It quickly replaced the bottle of lotion I use every night before bed. But the product is not just for hands. It’s a great facial moisturizer – especially for those people with oily or normal skin (especially since there’s no slimy residue left). And it is not just for hands and faces – Skin MD can be applied to any skin part.
And if you have eczema or psoriasis? You may want to take note. As this may be an answer to your prayers.
The team at Skin MD was kind enough to give me some extra product so I could “share the wealth.”
Here’s what Carrie, a mom of four said… “We have used this lotion quite a bit. We’ve been to the pool a lot this summer. I found it is great for those light pink sunburns. I even packed it with us when we went on our summer vacation.”
And for those people with sensitive skin, like my friend Kathy? Have no fears – the product is very mild. Kathy said, “There are a lot of products out there that I can’t use. My skin gets very red, itchy and hot. When I found out about this skin care product, I thought I’d only apply it to a small part of my face. Since I didn’t have any problems, I applied it to another area. I ended up putting it all over my face. I was amazed. I didn’t have any inflammation or stinging. In fact, my skin felt much, much better.”

“I ordered Skin MD last year and I have to say it certainly is more effective than any other type of lotion I have tried in the past.
I live in the United Kingdom and work in a very dusty archive room in the British Library. My eczema is very reactive to dust and it was hell until I started putting on Skin MD. My skin felt more secure and I had less itchy outbreaks. The eczema is bad around my neck and face and it’s hard to cover those areas in day to day life. Even though my eczema stems internally, at least I have good knowledge knowing that my skin is being looked after externally. Having the lotion on felt like a secure blanket over those areas and my day goes smoothly without any or very mild irritations.
I have ordered two more bottles to last me for a longer period so that my skin can heal longer and faster without any missed days of putting on the lotion.

“Day 3: I notice the magic words, “Non Comedogenic” on the bottle (I’m 32, but my wrinkles say I’m 40; my pores shout 14!) and slather some on my face. At the end of the day, my foundation has not puddled in my laugh lines. While I’m doing the dishes I notice that the water is beading up on my hands.”

“I guess the thing that most impresses me about Skin MD is that it doesn’t wash off easily. That’s always my gripe about most moisturizers (especially when I forget to put lotion in my purse, and I have to walk around with scraggly hands), but this one lasts a long time even when I fall victim to those harsh liquid antibacterial soaps in most public restrooms. And you don’t even have to slather it on to get the long-lasting effect – a little goes a long way.
For me, all this means less tortured cuticles, cracked skin and irritating dryness. Plus it’s not greasy, it doesn’t stink and it didn’t clog my pores when I used it on my face. It’s that good.”
“It is labeled for use on hands, body and face. I’m way too careful about anything that goes on my face and intended to keep it for hand and body. The bottle has been residing on my desk for a couple of weeks now, and has become my favorite hand cream. But a few nights ago, after too many hours of central heating, I decided to try, and definitely liked the way it felt. It’s different, for sure. I don’t think it can or should replace an established skin care regimen that is proven to be working, but it can be an additional first-aid kind of thing. It keeps my skin hydrated when going out on a cold day, and it relieves and moisturizes when the heating is slowly baking it.”

“I do a lot of sport. I was in Thailand doing kickboxing training this year and all the sweat and the heat seemed to break down the skin barrier on my face. After I returned home the cold weather made the skin on my face flake terribly. It was really bad, I was beginning to worry about it ever getting back to normal as it hurt and flaked every morning after I showered. But I am happy to say the Skin MD lotion fixed that, which means I can get back into the gym and I am very happy about this.”
“I purchased samples of Skin MD from your website and liked it. I was happy to discover that a local store actually carried your product (The Face Shop), so I purchased a bottle from them a little while ago.
I love how long the bottle lasts, at first I thought it was a bit much to pay $30CDN for a bottle, but it is lasting a long while (I use it as a facial moisturizer). I love the texture of the lotion, it feels like it sinks and absorbs immediately into my skin, and since I have oily skin, it’s great, unlike other moisturizers.
I do feel like it does help my skin moisture without that sticky feeling of having a layer of moisturizer on top of my face. I also have patches of eczema where I dab on some of the lotion. It doesn’t make them go away but certainly relieves the dry itchy flakiness.”
“I first tried Skin MD in two sample packets I received on my hands. I was amazed at how smooth and soft they looked and felt throughout the day, using just a tiny amount. I quickly ordered two bottles, and read the testimonials inside about women who had used this product on their face. I am very cautious about putting new creams on my face, but tried it that evening, after I had put on my moisturizer.
When I got up the next morning I noticed that this deep wrinkle around the corner of mouth was much less deeper. I was ecstatic. Now every morning and night I use Skin MD on both my face and hands, sealing in my moisturizers. Even though I have been only using the product on my face for 2 weeks, and still have lots left, I am thinking about ordering more.
When my friend recently visited me, I put some of my precious product on her hands, and she, too, was amazed at how soft her hands felt, IMMEDIATELY.
I am a lifelong customer!!!!! Thank you.”
In a year after she started using Skin MD:
“I wouldn’t go without Skin MD. My hands, arms and face are baby soft all during the winter. Young people want to know how come I look so young… instead of 66, they all think I am 50! I love your product… and am even using it in the summer because going from hot, humid weather into drying air conditioning is not the best thing for your skin, either!”
“I live in Colorado and it is very dry here and whether it’s my hands or face or skin in general, it’s been a challenge to find something that really works.
I happened to luck into finding this product at a Walgreen’s. What struck me the most was the comment from Dr.Benest about traditional moisturizers causing rebound dryness. This makes sense to me because I have found that as of late the more I’ve used the dryer my skin was looking! I had been using products from Ice Elements, which the base is hydropol and they are fabulous products but I am so tired of so many “steps”. I find I get lazy because it’s just too much to do day in and day out. I’m sure there are many women out there that share the same sentiment.
I liked Skin MD so much I went back and bought three additional bottles. I notice it has a tightening effect (on my face) which at age 50, is probably all good! Not dreadful like some that make you feel like you just put bondo on your face, just a little extra “something”. I believe the concept of this product is a bit cutting edge for some folks. It’s so simple that it might be overlooked.
I also posted a note about your product on the QVC beauty bulletin boards. Those gals are always looking for a magic bullet so hopefully you’ll note a spike in interest!”
“Being a fair skinned redhead, I’ve always had the aggravation of extremely sensitive skin. I was a little nervous about trying out Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ as I was worried I might get to spend the day blotchy. Thankfully, my concerns were groundless and I’m definitely a fan. The lotion is very light and leaves only a soft, not greasy feeling. I’ve also been pleased with it as a facial moisturizer and am happy to report it didn’t cause any breakouts. I do tend toward drier skin.
With a newborn in the house I am constantly changing diapers and washing my hands. I’ve noticed I do not have to reapply this lotion after each washing. Who has time for that, anyhow?
The directions aren’t kidding when they say apply small amount, a little goes a long way.”
“So I started putting SkinMD on my face. It feels a little weird at first, because as the website is quick to point out, it’s a totally different formula than regular moisturizing lotions, but in about ten seconds your skin gulps it up and you’re left to rub your smooth, non-greasy cheeks and ponder if you actually put any lotion on or if it was all just a beautiful dream.”
“I have used Skin MD mostly on the face and hands for a couple months. I have a dry/sensitive skin type. The lotion works great for me. The texture is between gel and cream. It is very lightweight and easy to apply. After I apply the lotion, it got absorbed quickly but I don’t feel greasy or sticky residue on my skin. I like the way it gives my face hydration without turning it oily like a shinny “light bulb”. A thin layer of the so-called “invisible shield” can be felt on the outer layer of skin in a very comfortable way. My face feels clean immediately after the Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ is applied. My face would look bright and refreshing in the next morning. I also love using it on my hands in daytime. It allows me to work with the computer without a mess. It just doesn’t mess up the working environment by leaving oily finger marks everywhere.”
“And you don’t need to keep re-applying through out the day. In our experience, 1 time, which is after every shower, is sufficient enough. There are a few days when my husband would forget to put some on his face and I could tell right away. So of course I remind him to use Skin MD the way he reminds me to water my plants and take my vitamins everyday :)”
“I have been trying Skin MD for the past 3 weeks and really noticing a difference. I don’t normally use lotion everyday, because I don’t like my wife’s smelly, heavy lotions. I found myself using this lotion from my feet to my face. It has left my feet feeling fantastic and my face feeling fresh. The other thing I noticed is that you don’t need a lot of it. I was pouring it on in the beginning and realized there is no need a little bit goes a long way. It is so light that you really don’t feel it on, light and all botanical. It is a total hand, body and face lotion.”
David & Tonya
“This lotion soaks in so fast, you forget you put it on. I shared my bottle of Skin MD with several friends and we all agree that this lotion is awesome! I know many men who will not use lotions and moisturizers because they don’t like the way they feel and smell. I had a few men that I know who strongly object to putting products on their skin and they truly liked the product and the results! I am highly sensitive to smells and this lotion has a very faint aloe scent. A couple of my friends couldn’t even detect a scent at all. That’s a huge bonus by my standards!”
“I hate to put lotion on my face because of the oily feeling but with Skin MD this is something that I don’t have to worry about!! Skin MD is promptly absorbed with no greasy or oily feeling! With a family history of Skin Cancer, sun protection is a priority in our family. Skin MD with SPF15 sunscreen provides our family with sun protection while it still prevent dryness and irritation! We highly suggest this great lotion to everyone!”
“I have to say that I think this is the best type of moisturizer to use for your face. It doesn’t add anything to cause acne, it uses your own moisture. Now with the added SPF protection, it really tops my list.”
“I have pretty fair skin and need to wear at least a 15spf daily, I also have two demanding young boys and need to be able to get ready in a hurry in the morning. Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ + SPF 15 has been a great fit for me. It is a fragrant and colorant free lotion, that goes on smooth and light and absorbs quickly, there is no greasy feel left behind and my foundation goes on as smoothly and stays as well as it ever has. Since starting to use this lotion I have also noticed a smoother texture to my skin.”
“Now, I am pretty picky with what I like and don’t like. I use a good skincare line on a daily basis, so I have pretty healthy skin. I don’t really have dry hands or feet in the winter, so I decided to try this[Skin MD] on my face in the place of my regular moisturizer. Now, let me explain that this was probably the toughest test I could have done. I have extremely acne prone skin, so I break out really easily. I was afraid that since this was an all-in-one Shielding Lotion™ it would be too much for my face. After using this for several months now, I can honestly say I am VERY impressed.”
“I had high expectations for Skin MD. They were probably even set a little too high going in to the review. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed using this lotion on my face and body. What I liked best, was that it was not oily to me AT ALL! It was very light and felt only slightly thicker than water. I was extremely pleased with how easily it was applied and absorbed into my skin. It does a great job of moisturizing without creating a heavy or oily feel. I cannot tell you that all of my dryness has magically disappeared, but it has improved. It is definitely one of the lotions I will continue to use on my face before applying makeup. It is perfect for a primer before applying foundation.”
“Skin MD smells great and it rubs into my skin easily and doesn’t leave me feeling oily or stay on my skin. It massages right in and leaves my skin feeling so super soft. Another awesome feature is that you can use it on both your face and your body. I have very oily skin so I have to be careful about the moisturizer I use on my face. It worked out perfectly and left my face feeling crazy soft.”
“I hate the feeling of heavy make-up, oils or lotions on my face and do not moisturize as often as I should because of it. It’s hard to find a product that is effective, but lightweight on the face’s delicate skin and costs tend to add up when buying different moisturizers for different parts of the body. Skin MD was feather-light to put on and I noticed a difference in my skin after using it over the past few weeks. My skin felt healthier and I feel confident it will have long term effects on my skin with continued use. And a little bit goes a long way so don’t be fooled how far a 4 oz. bottle will take you.”
“I have tried many different types of lotions over the years, considering the fact that I am a lotion fanatic! I generally look for the smelly good ones. The first thing I do when I open a new bottle is to smell it. I quickly noticed that this lotion is odor free. Of course the second thing I did was to try it. So I lathered my skin up with it. I even tried it on my face. I typically don’t use lotions on my face due to my newly developed oily skin problem. Most lotions make my skin feel really greasy. Skin MD made my skin feel refreshed like it was telling me Thank You! My husband had the opposite problem as me. His face is so dry that his skin often turns dry & red. Due to his pale Irish completion, his skin breaks out with most types of lotion. This lotion works wonders for him with no irritations. I personally love the way this lotion makes my skin feel so moist & doesn’t leave it greasy.”
“My husband has been complaining lately that his face is dry – probably due to the early onset of wintry weather – so when he came home and found my new bottle of Skin MD sitting on the counter he slathered some on. He was amazed that it didn’t sting like the other lotions he had been trying. He says it seems to help and certainly doesn’t irritate the skin.”
“I tend to have oily skin and I absolutely love SkinMD as a moisturizer. The first time I used it, I put it on my clean face before bed. I woke up to the softest, smoothest skin I can remember (aside from having just had a facial). I looked in the mirror and there were absolutely no red or dry patches or irritation and my pores looked smaller. I was really blown away. It literally disappears into the skin, no greasy or heavy feeling after application at all.”
