Skin MD Natural - An Unconventional View

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!**


Before I received a bottle of Skin MD Natural, I did google and found many blogs that have reviewed this particular lotion. To put into my own words, this is a shielding lotion that provides a barrier between the outer layer of skin and the air. Why would this be important?


Sometimes some creams moisturize the skin on the initial application then as the day wears on from the air conditioning or heating unit; the moisturizer slowly evaporates and your skin begins to feel dry. This one bonds with the skin yet never feels dry, tight, greasy, or sticky. The moisture is held within the skin because the ingredients provide the moisture rather than drawing moisture from the air; a self-sustaining lotion that is to be used on the face, body, hands, and feet. If you have eczema, this will provide relief and possibly heal the skin without the use of antibiotic creams which can become ineffective over time. The texture is slightly runny, this is only because the amount needed is very little since it contains only the ingredients needed to do what it does and none of the pretty little ones like fragrance which can irritate the skin. No fragrance means it is a unisex lotion. Men can use it and since there are no irritating ingredients, children can use it too. But why think of this only as a shielding lotion?

Next is an unconventional review of Skin MD Natural. I apologize to the company for not reviewing it in the usual manner of it being an excellent moisturizing lotion. I saw it to be more than that and probably an answer to my makeup prayers!

So, how does a makeup junkie analyze a product like this? Right before I received the lotion, my brain was turning into a lazy lump of nerves or the cold weather was shrinking my brain cells making me forget the application of primer. And, to make it worse, my skin was turning dry due to the change in weather and indoor heating. I wanted something that was a primer AND moisturizer in one BUT I didn't want to feel that extra layer of product. I also wanted a lotion that was reasonably priced ($18USD for 4oz.) and could easily be mixed with other cosmetic items without interfering with the formulation of the cosmetic product. Skin MD Natural is the product! It does come in two formulations: regular and sunscreen. (The sunscreen version contains octinoxate, octisalate, and homosalate as the sunscreen.)

When I read the ingredients listing, I thought to myself it reads like a foundation primer yet it contains aloe which makes a nice non greasy moisturizer. But the rest of the ingredients like cyclopentasiloxane and dimethicone can make it sound really slippery. It isn't at all. It provides that perfectly smooth surface like a primer and the right amount of moisture for all skin types including oily skin. Nothing oily, greasy, slippery, thick, or sticky which is why it also makes a great companion to many makeup products including foundation and loose color pigments. In the following picture, I have mixed Skin MD with a liquid foundation to thin it out to make a tinted moisturizer. I also mixed it with loose color pigments to make a shimmer cream.


Mixing moisturizer with foundation sometimes isn't easy since some moisturizers don't mix well due to the ingredients. It can leave some lumps of separated moisturizer and foundation in the mix. Some moisturizers are so greasy that it just feels like an extra layer of oil on the face that has to be powdered down to keep the color. Skin MD easily mixes with the foundation providing a tinted moisturizer that feels like any of the high end brands sold at cosmetic counters. The mixture spreads evenly and smoothly over the face without feeling greasy. Depending on your skin, an application of powder isn't necessary since it dries onto the skin yet never feels dry. It never looks too matte either, provides a slight dewiness to the mix which is really nice for mature skin.

Sometimes, you want to mix your loose color pigments into a cream for easier application. You might want to apply it on your shoulders, arms, and legs. Or you might have a nice red or pink one that makes the perfect blush yet you don't like how the looseness of it can get all over the face. Take the Skin MD lotion and mix it with any of your pigments and you will have shimmery lotion that can be applied all over the body or in a concentrated area like the cheeks and with no fallout! Never greasy or dry and provides a smooth glowy sheen.

This is definitely one good no-nonsense moisturizer that does what it does!

P.S. The ingredients are found on FDA's most safe list which makes it safe to use as an eye cream.
