Crafting Reviews

“I craft and can not have greasy hands, for fear of staining my fabric, or paper with a grease spot. Not with this. I can put it on and it soaks in and does not leave my hands greasy. It is almost a soft powdery feel with no residue. So, I do reccomend this lotion and will continue to buy, as it is carried at my local Walgreens and CVS.”

“There are times when my hands get dry and I want lotion, but don’t use it because it might mess up something else. A good example of this is when I am sewing. The non-greasy aspect of this lotion allows me the freedom to use it and continue sewing because it doesn’t damage the fabric. If I handle a lot of fabric, yarn or paper and probably other things, I find it draws the oils out of my hands and they need extra moisture. The Skin MD seems ideal for my sewing room.”

“Alright hand crafters… how many times have you reached into your knitting/sewing/scrapbooking bag for some lotion only to be disappointed with the lotion you use on your hands? Too greasy or not moisturizing enough? No crafter likes a lotion that will take forever to penetrate her skin. And every knitter I know likes to keep her/his hands supple as not to snag delicate yarns.

So when I was approached to review SkinMD’s Shielding Lotion™, I thought why not? I was skeptical that I would LOVE it as so many testimonials asserted. But I gave it a whirl. I tested this product over 2+ weeks and even took samples of it to knitting group. The consensus? We all really liked it. It penetrates quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. There was no greasy feel on my hands like with other lotions I’ve tried. Therefore it didn’t transfer to my yarn! And as someone with sensitive skin, I found it’s fragrance-free, colorant-free, and paraben-free formula to be especially nice. Nothing is worse than having a reaction to a lotion.”
