Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is unlike any lotion I've ever used before.  When it comes out of the bottle it is a thin milky white lotion with a feel that is similar to condition in thickness and texture.  When I first rubbed it on it felt almost oily on my skin.  Even after rubbing completely in I felt like I had a thin coating over my skin.  It wasn't a bad feeling but it was definately different! I tried this lotion for several days especially on my super dry elbows but I have to say I just wasn't impressed.  I felt like it was too thin to really moisturize my dry skin.  I think that if you started using this before you got major dry skin it would be a great preventative lotion, but not a curing lotion.

I also was sad to see so many ingredients that I was unfamiliar with on the label.  Although it says it is "Natural" the ingredient list isn't so natural.  Ingredients: Deionized water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Aloe Vera), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Methyl Gluceth-20, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E),
Arnica Montana Flower Extract (Arnica), Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract (Comfrey), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract (Chamomile), Achillea Millefolium Extract (Yarrow), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, 1,2 Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol.
