Skin MD Natural Lotion

I was contacted by a rep from Natural Skin Care Products a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to know if I would be interested in testing their Skin MD Natural Lotion. Well it took me about two seconds before I replied with "heck yes I am a lotion junkie!" And that is the honest truth, I am always looking for a new lotion to try. I carry a bottle in my purse, put some on after a shower, after I wash my hands 'cause gah soap is so drying, and I need to apply lotion before I read (seriously) because I can't stand the feel of dry pages on dry hands. Get the picture? I get cranky if my skin feels dry. An odd pet peeve but very real.

My bottle of Skin MD natural lotion arrived and I ripped into the box and pulled out the bottle and instantly slathered some on because oye, that whole box ripping interlude made my hands feel dry. I was instantley taken aback by the fact that the lotion was really thin. I'm not going to lie, I found the thinness of the lotion disconcerting at first. I am accustomed to lotion that leaves me feeling so slathered that I feel as though I could slither my way through a key hole if need be.

But as I used the lotion for the next couple days I began to love the feel of the lotion on my skin, I no longer felt like a buttered turkey, the lotion felt like it was part of my skin and my skin in turn felt silky. I was in love. I then inspected the bottle to see what exactly I was falling in love with and was pleased as punch to see that I could not only pronounce the ingredients, but I was familiar with them, like take for example aloe-yeah friendly little fix all, aloe is in the lotion. Ok ok, I am gushing I will stop, after this one more thing, it doesn't have a scent, which is awesome because I don't have to worry about my lotion and perfume scent clashing.

Sigh, its love.

And guess what? You can win your own bottle of this awesome lotion! Just leave a comment below with your odd lotion applying habits (like how I must apply lotion before reading books etc) or other ways in which you care for your skin that might be out of the ordinary. I will post a winner next Monday February 15th!

I can only put on lotion right after I get out of the shower, while the bathroom is all steamy and warm. Because who likes to put on lotion when you're cold? No one, that's who.

Oh, and the pup has a weird obsession with licking lotion off of my legs. Should I be concerned? Is that a normal pup thing? Is he a weirdo?

i am always on the lookout for the perfect lotion. i have a thyroid disease and so my skin is "winter dry" all year round. sometimes it gets so dry i get scaly little patches in the most inappropriate places (like on my face you sickos) so it's really important for me to have a lotion that moisturizes beneath the top layer of skin.

i always put lotion (or oil) on directly out of the shower and then before bed, and multiple times throughout the day; i put lotion on whenever i notice drying or cracking. my husband is annoyed with the abundance of lotion bottles in the car, on my night stand, in the bathroom, in the living room, etc. but until i find a lotion that can keep up with my needs you will find a bottle everywhere you look in my house.

(ooh, i love that Skin MD is unscented!)

and to carly ^^ my pup is forever licking lotion off of me too. that can't be healthy, eh?

Carly, my dog does that too but only with cocoa butter.

My weird lotion habit is that I will get out of bed at night just to fumble around in the dark for my hand lotion. I can't sleep if my hands feel dry.

I can't go to bed without putting lotion on my hands...I swear the feeling of dry hands drives me so crazy I can't fall asleep!

I have a bit of a lotion fetish. If I had my way, I would probably have 50 bottles strategically placed around my little apartment.
I generally put on lotion after a shower and then on my hands throughout the day. I hate it when my hands feel dry, so I'm constantly putting some on.

Right now I'm having to put on lotion constantly with the winter weather so I need something great!

Thanks for doing this giveaway! So nice.

My skin is always so dry - especially in winter. So, I'm always on the lookout for something that isn't too greasy and actually works.

Tons of lotion after I shower - and I'm always putting more on during the day.

I'm a pre-book-reading-apply'er too! My books always end up with greasy fingerprints on them though.

Julie said...

I apply lotion constantly. As soon as I'm out of the shower, after I wash my hands, at work (really frequently at work because filing really does a number on my hands), and I keep lotion in my purse.

I would call myself a total lotion addict.

with three kids I am washing my hands all. day. long. and they get SOO dry. And it drives me insane!! So I'm constantly putting lotion on them, because I can't stand to touch things when my hands are dry. Books especially! I'm with you there.

I LOVE lotion-- after the shower, before bed, all the time. So I hope I win :)
thanks for doing this!!
