"I've tried numerous SPF lotions and creams to find one that I can wear every day, but I have had a hard time finding one that doesn't make my skin oily or break out. Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 lotion was the first one that not only felt good as I wore it, but didn't cause breakouts, even with weeks of wear.
The Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 looks and feels thicker than the classic Skin MD Shielding Lotion, but still has all the great qualities of the shielding lotion. The Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion + SPF 15 soaked into my skin almost immediately and left my hands, face and body feeling clean and fresh. Like the original Shielding Lotion, the Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 is also non-greasy and doesn't leave your skin slippery or leave harsh smells behind. In fact, this was the first SPF lotion I have tried that didn't have a pungent smell of sunscreen. My hubby absolutely despises lotions, especially sunscreen lotions, so I love that I can wear this daily without it bothering him at all and he even lets me put it on him when we're going out in the sun for the day."

"The lotion with sunscreen does not perform like a typical product with SPF 15. Usually I have to wait at least five minutes before applying my makeup. I have often found other natural products with sunscreen to be overly emollient. The Skin MD Shielding Lotion + SPF 15 absorbed easily. The protective layer felt very much like the natural softness of well cared for skin."

"What I like about Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 is that it doesn't have much of a fragrance, so I can wear it whenever. I don't have to worry about my lotion and perfume working against each other to create a strange odor. It goes on great and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
I am an animal lover, so it really stands out to me that Skin MD natural does not test their products on animals. That makes me feel just that much better about using their products! Who knows, my dogs might secretly be thanking me for it!"
"I'm a natural red-head, and as with most red-heads I have extremely fair and sensitive skin that requires a lot of maintenance. I'm always in search of a better skin-care product, so when I was approached to try Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion with Sunscreen SPF 15 I was thrilled! I found it is a wonderfully light lotion with a very mild scent. It's so light that I actually apply a little to my face each morning (yes, you read that right, I apply it to my face!).
I usually have dry red patches on my cheeks and this lotion has really reduced those patches. Even though the lotion is lightweight, it still provides enough moisture to take care of the rough skin that this cold, dry weather has left on my hands and elbows. The added plus is that it's protecting me from the sun, which is extremely important to me and my fair skin. This product has definitely made it's way into my daily skin-care regimine!"

"The weather I live in is extremely unpredictable. It is usually quite humid here, but lately it has been pretty dry. One day it will be cold and the next hot. One day we wear shorts and the next we wear a coat. All this back and forth wreaks havoc on my family's skin. My hubby and I were scratching our legs until they were sore due to terrible dry skin and my 22 month old was waking up because his skin was so dry. I also have problems with Psoriasis and very dry feet. I had tried a lot of lotions that would help for a little bit but soon the itching and dry skin was back.
We have been using Skin MD for about a month now. Both my husband and I noticed right away that Skin MD Natural didn't leave a greasy film. We both like that a lot. I also noticed that my skin felt softer and my Psoriasis stopped being itchy and became much less scaly. My Psoriasis is on my head so hair products seem to make it worse. The shielding properties of Skin MD Natural really seemed to protect my scalp. I noticed I wasn't scratching my head nearly as much and started seeing less flaking.
I also used this on my oldest son and his skin felt much softer immediately. I also like that SPF 15 is added to it. I put this on my boys and I everyday for extra protection and moisture when we go to the park. I have been keeping it in the diaper bag lately and hubby keeps asking what I did with 'his lotion'."

"Usually whenever I go to the beach I get sunburned even if I use a sunblock. But this time I put on the Skin MD Natural spf15. I played volleyball, went swimming and was out in the sun for 4 hours. I reapplied it once after swimming and not only did I not burn at all but I also got a nice tan. This stuff works!"
"To say that I love lotion, would be an understatement.
I have been pregnant, nursing, or both since October 2005. My skin has stretched to carry two beautiful boys to 42 weeks, 2 times in the last 3 years! My bump with Andy defied gravity, and while Ryan was a smaller tummy bump, he was 10 pounds at birth, he didn't exactly treat my stomach skin gently either! I've been breastfeeding for almost 3 years straight. I've been changing diapers for almost 3 years now too. I was my hands ALOT. Not to mention, I literally get the liquid sucked out of my body! I try to drink lots of water, but sometimes, the skin around my mouth starts to get tight & I know I'm beginning to dehydrate. Aside from worrying about getting enough water for my own body, it really takes a toll on my skin! I of course, horde lotion like the world is coming to a lotion end. And while I LOVE scented lotions, I do know that alot of what gives it such great scents, is really drying to the skin. Living in Ohio in the winter, washing my hands upwards for 20 times a day, nursing, all my daily activities really take its toll on my hands and my face.
That has ALL changed. I kid you not. Skin MD Natural [SPF15] gave me the opportunity to try their protective shielding lotion. Lotion, yay, right up my alley! When I started reading the testimonials I thought "Okay wow, maybe this actually is totally different than regular lotion..." So I gave it a try. I washed my face & put just a bit on my face, it really doesn't take much, they even remind you to just use a bit. The first thing I noticed was its a thin, smooth lotion. I know sometimes when I think of "intense moisture" I think the cream has to be thick, rich & heavy.
Nope, Skin MD Natural is thin, not greasy & slides easily on. I almost never use facial lotion in the morning, I just feel greasy afterwords, but I cant even tell I applied lotion, if I touch my face, I can FEEL a difference It's softer and it actually looks more even in the mirror. I don't wear cover up, or powder so I don't like using a lotion that gives me a greasy appearance to my face, but Skin MD doesn't leave anything behind but soft rosy, even cheeks.
I was impressed immediately. However, Skin MD Natural is a universal lotion. Its not just for your face, its for your hands, feet, eczema, its for any part of you that needs moisture and restoring. I cant say I've ever found a lotion that ACTUALLY does the job for all parts, but I put just a bit on my hands & sat down to rock Ryan to sleep. I laid him down 5 minutes later & rubbed my hands together. I have NEVER come across a lotion like this. My hands feel DIFFERENT. I can't tell I put on lotion, but my hands feel soft. You know that feeling of healthy, what they call "dewy" skin, where it isn't achieved by lots of lotion, its achieved by actually having really healthy great skin?? My hands feel like that.
It doesn't feel like a moisturizer, if feels like a skin repairer. My hands don't have a "coating" of moisture, my skin actually IS moist, below the layers of skin, down into places that are radiating out word. The best way I could think to explain it is like this. They say "soft as a baby's butt" for a reason. That skin that has never held a tool, dug a hole,been washed hundreds of times over, its perfect, flawless & moisture & daily life haven't yet tainted a baby's skin. This lotion is your best bet at your skin EVER feeling and looking like that AGAIN.
I can't tell you how much I am loving this stuff, my feet get stepped on by my husband daily, I actually have 2 toes that just dont feel anymore, they are cracked & before they went numb, were painful! I've been using ONE DROP of this on them every night & you can see a HUGE improvement, not even straight vaseline or vitamin E did what Skin MD Natural has done ina matter of nights for my feet."

"Because of my fair skin I normally have to put on tons of high spf sunscreen to even begin to keep from burning when I'm outside. So, I was a bit skeptical that the Skin MD Natural with spf 15 was going to protect me. But, when I was at a pool party and out in the sun all day not only did I not burn I even tanned which is not what I expected at all. I thought maybe something had changed with my ability to withstand the sun but the next day I went to the beach and using regular sun block I got one of the worst burns in my life. The Skin MD Natural is amazing stuff and I am going to use it to protect myself from now on."
"I have always had dry skin. In the winter, my hands get so dry that they hurt. I have allergies and asthma and have always been sensitive to the scents of lotions, Skin MD Natural smells clean, and light and fresh. It doesn't have that lingering after smell that some lotions have. And since it has SPF 15, it helps to protect my skin when I have to be outside!
Between washing dishes, changing diapers, bathing children, my hands stay dry and cracked. I've tried every lotion I can find to keep this from happening, but they are either greasy feeling, or wash off with the first hand washing after applying. This hasn't happened with Skin MD Natural. After trying it on my hands for a few days, I decided to try my feet. I have a habit of going barefoot all the time, and the result is extremely dry, cracked heels. Not anymore thanks to Skin MD Natural!
I've also been using it on my face, and have noticed that those tiny little lines around my mouth that have been creeping in since I turned 41 have disappeared! My mom even noticed the difference! She recently had a skin lesion removed from her forehead, and I gave her some to try on the spot, Skin MD Natural helped it heal faster!"

"I wouldn't consider myself as someone who has acne. But I would say that I occasionally get pimples. Usually only one or two at a time. But regardless of the amount, it's still frustrating. I don't use acne products on my face. I find that they either don't work at all, or make me break out worse. My face cleanser is just a plain, all-natural, foaming soap. This product goes along perfectly with the cleanser that I use!
You don't need to slather this all over your face either. I put a small dab on my fingertip, and it was more than enough for my entire face and neck area. The directions tell you that a little goes a long way, and that is the truth! I'd also like to mention, that a short time after putting this on my face, I noticed a difference in my skin. First of all, it is so smooth and soft. Not greasy or oily. Secondly, I'm usually a little pink around the cheeks and nose, but it wasn't there at all. I put this on before I had showered, so later when I did shower, I was surprised to find out that I did not need to reapply! My face is still soft and hydrated, even after washing!
Last but not least, this particular formula also has SPF15. As a skin care specialist, I always told my customers that the number one cause of aging is the sun. I can not stress how important it is to protect your skin, at any age! This product not only protects you from the number one cause of aging, but since it's a shielding lotion, you're also protected from the number two cause; free radicals in the environment. There are so many things that this little bottle of lotion can do, and I can definitely say that I am a fan!"

"As a stay-at-home mom of small children I'm constantly washing my hands. Hand washing and soaps can irritate your skin and strip away it's natural oils. Traditional hand lotions don't always stay on your hands through constant washing. Cold dry winter air can also make dry skin much worse.
After trying Skin MD Natural [SPF15] shielding lotion I was amazed with the results. I placed about a pea sized amount on my hands and rubbed it all over. The dry itchy spots in between my fingers immediately soaked up the lotion. My hands felt refreshed but not sticky. After repeated hand washing Skin MD Natural stayed in my skin.
My son has multiple food intolerance. One of his common reactions to this problem is eczema breakouts and dry itchy skin. With regular use, Skin MD Natural has been proven to help heal eczema by increasing the skin's natural moisture. For natural skin care I recommend this product."

"Living on a farm, and perpetually refusing to wear anything but flip flops, can cause havoc on ones feet. The very first time I applied Skin MD Natural's Shielding Lotion, I fell in love. My feet were instantly transformed! I barely recognized them!
And the best thing about the Shielding Lotion, you can use it on your face, hands and body. So I started slathering it everywhere! Luckily, I was able to try out the Shielding Lotion with SPF 15 and with all the sun we're getting now I haven't had to worry about adding any addition SPF protection."

"I have a crazy job which makes me run a lot, fly around the world and keeps me busy, busy, busy.... So, imagine how much time I have to take care of my skin. And it use to cost me a lot, this red & grey, unhealthy looking face. Being a relationship manager I face customers daily. And I don't really want them to know that I had a sleepless night, a long flight and a dozen chocolates when they get to see me for a very first time.
Expensive solutions I tried were nowhere near to Skin MD Natural + SPF15. You know, I simply apply it on my face before I go to sleep, then each morning, and whenever I fly. My skin looks beautiful. No allergy, no itching, no disappointment. There is no second chance to make a first impression. This is why I've chosen SMDN that never lets me down."
"When you hear a product claiming it is a "skin care breakthrough," you may try it and most times its not all its hyped up to be. I had never heard of Skin MD Natural [SPF15] before and was excited to try it. During the winter my hands become extremely cracked and dry and I haven't found many products that cure it.
When I first tried the Shielding lotion... it didn't feel like a lotion at all! It isn't thick and sticky like most lotions. It is a hydrating, thin, silky and smooth lotion that dries quickly. The bottle says for hands, body and face, but I was hesitant to try it on my face. I get acne easily and lotions sometimes are the cause of it. I replaced my daily moisturizer with the Shielding Lotion before applying makeup and I could tell the difference right away. My makeup didn't feel caked on and my face felt light and airy! I didn't realize my daily moisturizer was weighing me down!
Skin MD Natural really is a "skin care breakthrough," and this is one product I would recommend."
Busy Mom Reviews Blog
"My husband often makes fun of me because I refuse to believe I'm getting older. Alas, my skin is a constant reminder of the aging process. But a girl can dream, right? I dream of a day when I can walk out in the sun without fear of becoming a prune faced old lady. I dream of a day when I can throw away the vast array of products I use to keep my body from loosing essential moisture. I have lotions for my body, my face, my hands, and my feet. If they sold a lotion for my ears, I would most likely own it.
Well, Cinderella hold on to your glass slipper. Sleeping Beauty grab that pillow tight. Snow White, put that apple down (can you even believe she bought that line?) and make way for a new princess. My dream has come true! I have found a product that will allow me to throw all my other products in the trash. I can walk in the sun without fear but with a roar that says "You will not cause one more wrinkle today!" My prince has come and his name is Skin MD Natural! When he covers me with his shield, environmental irritants are warded off while my skin stays protected and hydrated. My prince also comes fully equipped with sun protection of 15 SPF, if I choose to battle the sun. Imagine going out in the sun fully protected and hydrated at the same time! (Lotions are sold with and without sun protection.)
Let me be clear, Skin MD Natural, can be applied to your face, body, hands and feet. I found that to be pretty suspect. How can one lotion do it all? How can one lotion combat the varying levels of dryness from cracked feet to a delicate face (and my face is quite delicate, if I do say so myself)? Well, the answer is: I don't know. I have no idea how Skin MD Natural does it all. I just know it does. The lotion is not thick, sticky or greasy. It is like giving your skin a drink of cream. Once absorbed, your skin feels exactly how skin is supposed to feel."

"I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I have dry, sensitive skin. I keep lotion on my hands all day long as a result. I'm also concerned about shielding my epidermis from the elements, so I always wear sunscreen during the summer and use a lotion on my face that contains a high SPF all year round. I've been looking for a body lotion with SPF, so that I can keep all my skin protected year-round without the heavy grease of normal sunscreen. So when Skin MD asked if I would like to review their skin care product, I was happy to oblige. Skin MD Natural smells nice and contains SPF 15 to help protect skin against the sun's damaging rays. This lotion is pretty much the solution to my quest for a lighter sunscreen - it's similar to traditional sunscreen in a lot of ways, but it's not so heavy or greasy. It absorbs right into the skin, which is good, but that also means that it doesn't leave that slick coating which I'm used to from other lotions."

"Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion with SPF 15 sunscreen, and I love it. To be honest, the first few days of using it, it felt like your basic lotion – good, but nothing amazing. But around day three, I noticed my skin was feeling softer and tighter. And it looked a bit clearer and brighter – I couldn't put my finger on it, but I looked healthier and more vibrant overall.
I love that a little bit goes a long way – you don't need much to cover your entire face, and it's very lightweight. It's actually good for the whole body. With the dry winter weather, I've used it on my hands and elbows, and they stay moist most of the day. I'm now completely hooked on my Skin MD lotion."

"Now, if there is something I want to have an unlimited of supply of, especially after relocating to Dubai, it's lotion with sunscreen. We have 330 days of sun in a year on the average so that means extra exposure to the harmful rays of the sun. Inside the buildings, a/c's are working hard to cool us on the summer months. The result? Dry skin.
The Skin MD Natural Shielding LotionI got was is a moisturizer and a sun protector with SPF 15 – a must for desert dwellers like me! I am happy that this lotion is absorbed by the skin immediately and leaves no greasy feeling. My keyboard doesn't have to look like I spilled oil in it! Its light, non-greasy solution with a pleasant scent (made with aloe vera and chamomile added with vitamin E) is what makes this lotion very useful for me.
I honestly feel different after a week of using and since I don't have to put again and again to achieve the moisture I want, this little 4 oz bottle will go a long, long way."

"All winter long, I fight dry skin. Between chilly winds and heaters going full tilt, my skin is cracked and painful from November to March. I've tried tons of lotions, but have disliked most of them. With sensitive skin, many lotions either cause rashes or make my skin feel like it's on fire.
Recently, I was able to try Skin MD Shielding Lotion with sunscreen. I've never heard of a shielding lotion before, so it was a completely new idea to me. Basically, Skin MD creates a barrier to keep out irritants that dry skin. According to Skin MD, it works by boosting the natural protective abilities of your skin.
Between work and being a mom, I am constantly washing my hands, so they have become incredibly dry. However, after using Skin MD, I was able to see a noticeable difference. My skin not only felt smoother, it also felt moisturized. No more itchy, scratchy, scaly hands.
One thing that really made me love Skin MD was the fact that it was not greasy at all. I hate lotions that make my hands feel slimy, and Skin MD did the exact opposite. It left my skin smooth and soft. Skin MD definitely carries through on it's promise that it 'exceptionally enhances your skin's hydrating and protective abilities.' We love it!"

"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 natural, 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."

"Skin cancer runs amok in my family. My younger sister, mother, aunt, and grandmother have all had it removed and since it first reared it's ugly head, I have been adamant about not going outside without lathering myself in sunscreen. Sure, it's earned me the nickname Transparent Girl, but I'll have the last laugh when I'm older and still have the skin of a baby and I'm surrounded by women that look like they could have played Magda's body double in, 'There's Something About Mary'. HA!
Anyway, the thing I hate most about having to use sunscreen and lotions with SPF is the greasyness factor. Not only does it feel gross on my skin, but it clogs my pores and makes me relive my teenage years. No, not the cute-body-carefree-attitude-no-responsibilities teenage years. The breakout years. Zits. Gross.
Skin MD is a great alternative to all of those sunscreens and creams that leave your skin a mess and that don't really do anything for you but block the sun's rays. I was lucky enough to get to try their shielding lotion and was extremely impressed! It wasn't greasy, it kept the sun at bay, and it actually made my skin look great! It glides on so smoothly and absorbs into my skin with no problems. I noticed within just a few days that a few of my dry skin problem areas were beginning to vanish and that my hands were reaping the benefits, too."

"I was able to test out the SPF 15 over the weekend while I was in Vegas. I was very happy with the results! I am a natural redhead and get color pretty easily, especially my first time out in the sun for the year, which this was. I applied the sunscreen before we went to the NASCAR race on Sunday, and I came home with very little color. Everyone else with me got FRIED!!! Poor things."

"Living in a country like Malaysia really is fun and challenging. My country is near the equator and that's why I'm always exposed to the sunlight. I can do lots of things in the Sun, but it's rays are stinging me! It makes my skin dry and sometimes flaky. I have tried on a few types of lotions before but they just don't work as well as I have expected.
Skin MD Natural sent me a Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion + SPF 15 sample a few days ago for my review. I was eager to try out this new product to see if it really works and when I applied it on my face, I found out that it's not greasy like the other products I've used before. After a few days using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion + SPF 15, I'm totally in love with it! My skin is now softer and smoother and it feels so good!
My sisters wanted to try this product too and after they did, they were so delighted to see the difference on their skin!"

"I have found that this bottle sure packs a big punch. You only need a small amount, it is absorbed quickly and your skin immediately feels better. Another thing I love is that this can be used all over your entire body. I never put my "regular" lotion on my face, but the Skin MD Natural with SPF 15 even works on my face. My face does break out, so I was bit worried about trying it on my face. I decided to go ahead and try it. Guess what, I love it for my face. It didn't cause any break outs, feels wonderful and has the SPF in it that I insist on using."

"Since I am extremely pale skinned, I have to be very careful to apply SPF lotion even when the weather is overcast and grey, but during the Summer it is especially important that I cover up and reapply frequently. Throughout the years, I've tried numerous SPF lotions and creams to find one that I can wear every day, but I have had a hard time finding one that doesn't make my skin oily or break out. Skin MD Natural +SPF 15 Lotion was the first one that not only felt good as I wore it, but didn't cause breakouts, even with weeks of wear.
The Skin MD Natural + SPF has UVB protection of 15+ and UVA protection of 5+, which makes it perfect for daily sun exposure and the perfect base under heavy duty sunscreens for beach days. As with all Skin MD products, it also is paraben free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and dermatology tested.
The Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 looks and feels thicker than the classic Skin MD Shielding Lotion, but still has all the great qualities of the Shielding Lotion. The Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion with SPF 15 soaked into my skin almost immediately and left my hands, face and body feeling clean and fresh. Like the original Shielding Lotion, the Skin MD with SPF 15 is also non-greasy and doesn't leave your skin slippery or leave harsh smells behind. In fact, this was the first SPF lotion I have tried that didn't have a pungent smell of sunscreen. My hubby absolutely despises lotions, especially sunscreen lotions, so I love that I can wear this daily without it bothering him at all and he even lets me put it on him when we're going out in the sun for the day.
And, since I love it so much, this has become my every day face lotion. I still wear the Natural Shielding Lotion by Skin MD at night, but if there's even a chance we'll catch some sun rays, I am wearing the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion + SPF under makeup or alone, as is the rest of the family."

"The cold, dry winter air outside, and the continually-running heater inside is really harsh on my skin, especially that of my cheeks and hands. I guess because everything else is covered up most of the time! My cheeks get red and irritated, and my forehead tends to get flaky. Both my husband and I suffer from dry skin on our hands. He works with his hands frequently, so his even get so bad that they start to bleed and crack. Gross, huh? You can see why I was thrilled to try out Skin MD Natural's new lotion.
The 'natural' aspect of this lotion is in the fact that no animals are used for testing purposes, the product is fragrance and colorant free, and lots of quality ingredients are used – aloe vera, vitamin E, chamomile, and purified water, just to name a few.
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion has been around for years now, but the newest product to be introduced is a combination of that same lotion and sunscreen, SPF 15 to be precise. You may be asking why I'd want to use sunscreen in the middle of the winter, but the sun can do damage even on the coldest days! There's a history of skin cancer in my immediate family, so I make every attempt to be careful. I may be pale, but I get complimented on my clear skin and can look forward to a less-wrinkly and (hopefully) cancer-free future!
But back to the lotion. When I squeezed it into my hand the first time, I was surprised at how thin its consistency was. A tiny bit really goes a long way, so I completely understand why it comes in such a small bottle. At only 4 ounces, it's the perfect size to carry in my purse, which is a huge plus.
My favorite feature of this lotion is that it isn't greasy at all. It absorbs into your skin in seconds, literally. I hate when I rub lotion into my hands then can't even turn a doorknob because they are so slippery. I also like that you can use this all over your body. It's an easy way to make sure you have sunscreen on everyday. Since it absorbs right away, it doesn't feel heavy like a foundation with sunscreen does. I can imagine that you could easily wear it under your makeup as well.
I found the fragrance-free aspect to be refreshing, actually, since so many lotions and creams on the market are scented nowadays. It has a slight sunscreen-type smell when you first apply it, but once it's been absorbed there's no hint of it whatsoever."

"Last summer I had a suspicious mole cut off of my thigh by my dermatologist. He said it had pre-cancerous cells and he didn't want to take any chances. The pitted scar on my leg is an ugly reminder that it could've been much worse... and that I need to be more diligent in wearing my sunscreen every day. I also tend to have really dry sensitive skin. Between the harsh Chicagoland winters, crazy hot summers and being a mom who frequently washes her hands until they're very chapped and cracked – I really need a good daily moisturizer that soothes and nourishes my skin and protects it from the UV rays of the sun. Like many people though, I don't like the chemical smell of most sunscreen products or how some lotions are really thick and greasy, so finding the right product has been a bit tricky.
When I heard about Skin MD Natural + SPF15, I was really excited to get the chance to try it. I was impressed by the fact that it is a face, hand and body lotion that contains natural ingredients and is hypoallergenic.
I've been using it for 3 weeks now. 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."
