I’ve found it to be pleasantly light, non-greasy and very hydrating to my skin. It has little or no scent at all, and a little really does go a long way. A dime sized drop covers my entire face, neck, and décolletage area. I wear it under my makeup and was happy to find that by the end of the day, my face is still soft, doesn’t look or feel greasy and my makeup doesn’t look creased or faded as it has after using some lotions. I’ve also been wearing it on my arms, legs, hands and elbows. I normally have really rough ashy elbows year round. In the three weeks that I’ve been using this lotion my elbows have become very soft and have lost that grayish color. My skin has been softer and less itchy, and irritated. I also have used it on my son, whose Asian skin is very sensitive and prone to Eczema and noticed no adverse reaction, only soft moist skin.
My one concern or a slight drawback is that this product only has SPF 15. I am prone to Melasma (dark spots on the face caused by medications and hormones) and should really use a higher SPF on my face. I don’t believe this product can be offered in a higher SPF due to the natural ingredients used. To that effect, I have layered Skin MD SPF 15 and another higher SPF face lotion on my melasma spots and still had very positive results.
The cost for a 4 oz. bottle is $25 for the SPF 15 lotion, and $18 for the original Shielding Lotion. It seems a bit pricey--but again, a little bit goes a long way---more so than most lotions and the results are worth it! Skin MD Natural also offers an unconditional guarantee of satisfaction. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product to adults and children alike. You can purchase Skin MD Natural SPF 15 or original Shielding Lotion at their website or in some local stores.
