Skin MD Review

Good Morning Lovelies!

Today I have a little review for ya!

I was sent a sample of Skin MD to try out and review awhile back.

Unfortunately I can't give you a good, first hand experience.  Would you like to know why?  Well, Rob, my husband, took it over!  Lemme back up and give you guys a bit of insight here...

Rob, as many of you know, builds Hot Rods and Drag cars for a living(we own a business doing just that!)
Rob has his hands covered in Carburetor cleaner and other solvents on and off all day.  Combine that with alot of hand washing with very abrasive, oil dissolving soaps, and to say his hands are dry is the understatement of the century!  His hands are so dry and rough that if he puts his hand on my leg in the car, or rubs his hand over my back, I can hear threads getting snagged on his skin!  He has actually made pulls in my pantyhose before.  See, another thing about Rob is that he HATES lotion.  With a passion!  So much so that last winter it took multiple fingers splitting open before pleading with him to put on lotion before bed actually worked.  He absolutely cannot stand the greasy or sticky feeling you get with most lotions.  If I ask him to put lotion on my back, he will, then will promptly go wash his hands!

Ok, back to Skin MD.
After I got it, I tried a bit out on my hands and noticed, WOW!  It just absorbs right in!  No residue, no stickiness, no greasiness, no odd slick feeling.  That night I had Rob put some on my back, cause it gets itchy from dryness in the winter, and as he was rubbing it in he said "what is THIS?!?"   I told him lotion, and he commented that it wasn't like any lotion he'd seen before.  He couldn't get over how it just melted in and didn't leave anything behind!  He promptly put more in his hand and rubbed it in.  Now, here's the kicker...He kept doing it, every morning and every night!  I stopped using it within a few days because I didn't want to use it up on him!  I was so overjoyed that he was actually using it, I couldn't bring myself to use it up.

So yeah, if that isn't a glowing recommendation, I'm not sure what is!  This is especially going to be awesome during the summer, because I LOATH putting lotion on my legs during the summer.  That greasy stickiness you get from other lotions just makes me feel hotter and sweatier, EWWW!  This is gonna ROCK!  I just gotta track it down near me!  The site has GREAT info as well as a tool to help you find who near you sells it!  You can also order straight from their web site.  Click HERE to go read all about the technology behind this product, as well as to find out where you can get a bottle!

That's it for today my wonderful Readers!

I hope you have a Fantastic Day!!!

That's so cute! Guys are so frustrating with that. It took me years to get Matt to use lotion regularly. What a terrific review!

That's a great reccomendation for a product. I don't know why men hate the feeling of lotion. I hate the feeling of rough hands. I also don't like too soft hands on men either. I guess from growing up with a Dad and brother who both worked on their cars and did all kinds of home repairs. I don't think I ever so my Father apply lotion. My brother will use it but nothing to greasy or fragrant. I like to feel creamy but not greasy. Now I can tell my brother what to buy.
