Eczema reviews

“I would like to thank you for your Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™. My 7 year old daughter suffered with eczema for nearly a year, in the end scratching and bleeding every night with her skin marked with sores all over. I tried several other moisturisers (e.g. Avéne, Aveeno) which helped a little. Cortisone cream would help some when used but not for long, then the symptoms would return. It was heartbreaking. I noticed Skin MD Natural on an allergy website and thought I’d give it a try. Within three days, she had stopped bleeding and within a week was mostly not itchy. Now about two weeks later, the scars are fading. We continue to use it twice a day. The skin feels smooth and healthy. (I also had some psoriasis on my upper back and this disappeared in the same time frame.) It has made a huge difference to her skin and our lives.”

“This is an excellent moisturizer. Period. Hands down the best thing that I have used for my eczema. I have been using a combination of Neutrogena Body Oil and Curel lotion in the past, and will still be red and itchy and occasionally need to use steroid creams. This is the worst on my legs, but sometimes on my arms as well.

Since I started using this moisturizer a few weeks ago, I have seen a pretty dramatic improvement in my skin tone and my eczema symptoms. My skin is smooth, feels well moisturized and I have had far fewer problems with redness and itching. I feel like I have normal skin!”

“I just want to thank you so much for this fantastic product. I’ve suffered from eczema since a baby, and at worst been in hospital covered in wet wraps and steroids. It was especially upsetting for me, when, at 20, I developed eczema on my face. I could no longer tolerate makeup and every cream I tried caused a reaction. It was with a great deal of skepticism that I bought a bottle of skin md, but it sounded different to other things I’ve tried. The first thing that shocked me was the fact that it didn’t cause a reaction on my face and my skin lost its usual tightness.

My husband, who had developed severe dermatitis on both hands, was almost clear after a week of using the lotion, and my steroid use has lessened considerably. I have now just ordered my third bottle from beautynaturals.com. You have, in short, given me my life back! I recommend this product to everyone I know, and when they see first hand my improved skin, they all want a bottle. I have promoted it on the internet on eczema discussion boards, because I know how soul destroying eczema can be, and if this just helps one person, it will be worth it.”

“Obviously, as I’m trying my best to lead a healthy life, I’m pretty concerned about what goes on my skin. Loads of chemicals can be absorbed through the skin, and if you check out the ingredients of a lot of popular skin care products, you’ll find some nasty stuff in there.

So I make sure to read the ingredients on the products I use, especially since we started trying to conceive. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™. Here’s what I loved on my first visit to the Skin MD website. They have an ingredients list right there on the site AND they tell you exactly what each of the ingredients is, and why it’s in there. There’s so much transparency for this natural skin care product, which as a concerned consumer, I really appreciate!

Instead of replacing the skin’s natural oils like moisturizers do, a Shielding Lotion™ protects the skin by forming a natural barrier, which keeps environmental toxins out and encourages your skin to regulate moisture naturally. (When I was in school, all of us art students became very familiar with barrier creams for protecting our skin from the chemicals we were using, whether that was in printmaking shop, painting studio or even the woodworking studio. SkinMD kind of reminds me of a gentler version of those barrier creams.)

Let me just get a little personal here and explain that I have had skin issues for years. I have recurring seborrheic dermatitis on my face as well as acne. The dermatitis leaves me with red, flaky, itchy, dry skin (not lovely) and the acne ranges from sebaceous filaments to those big, sore cysts that swell up like mosquito bites and hurt like heck. Not fun!

Believe me, I’ve tried everything – from the pharmacy acne creams to natural remedies, both over the counter and prescription. My dermatologist even prescribed long-term, low-dose antibiotics to help with my skin problems (which I have stopped taking!). I’ve tried retin-A creams, ProActiv (which is pretty much just benzoyl peroxide), salicylic acid, AHA’s, tea tree oil – you name it, over the years, I’ve tried it.

And now I’ve finally found a regimen that is keeping my skin clear – for the first time in about twenty years!!! I haven’t had a major breakout in weeks. For me this is huge.”

“I am a compulsive lotion user. Every time I see lotion I use it. You would think that my skin would be soft and smooth year round. However, when winter roles around my fingertips get extraordinarily dry and my skin starts to peel. I have used many different gels, lotions and creams from drugstore to high-end brands but none seemed to get rid of the flaky skin. I was sent a bottle of Skin MD to try and I have to say I am impressed. After three weeks, my flaky skin was officially gone. From a person who has probably spent over 300 dollars in 2 years on products to get rid of the peeling skin I have to say this is by far the best product I have ever used.

My dermatologist diagnosed me with dyshidrotic eczema last month. He told me to try using cortisone based creams which didn’t work. I went back to my dermatologist last week to show him the results of this amazing product and he said I no longer had dyshidrotic eczema.”

“I have eczema. I have since I can remember. I have tried creams, ointments, steroid creams and ointments, etc. Nothing ever seems to work very well and usually if it works better than most that also means it’s thicker and harder to apply than most.

Then about a year ago I learned about something I had never heard of before. It’s a new kind of natural skin care called a Shielding Lotion™. Skin MD Natural made promises of moisturized skin that, at the time, I didn’t believe. But, I had tried everything else on my scaly, rash looking arms that I figured why not try this.

The texture was as light as water (and as thin as it too). It wasn’t oily, greasy or filmy and you know what? It works!! And it works good!”

“I started noticing a real difference after about a week. I have had eczema behind my knees and elbows for as long as I can remember and this is the first lotion I have used that takes away the itch so that the skin feels normal. Cortisone can also take the itch away, but my skin doesn’t feel normal if I use that stuff. That’s impressive.”

“Wonderful to find a product that really helps with eczema and sensitive dry skin. Have tried MANY products and Skin MD is the only one that has relieved the problems related to my skin issues.
Thank You So Much. “

“I was recently given a sample by a friend because she knows my struggle with the annoying patch of eczema right by my nose and after one application and about two minutes later, it was completely calm and not as red. I started to use it daily and after one full day of use, the patch was gone. Yes, I can still see it because I know it is there, but it is not red, it is not raised, it is not irritated and I am so excited I have to share it with all of you!

For the first time I can honestly say that I have found the product that not only works the first time, but keeps working and the entire look of your skin will change!”

“I have a pesky little area of eczema that breaks out occasionally during times of stress, and Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ eliminated the associated redness and puffiness considerably.”

“I have atopic eczema which has been troubling me for more than 10 years now and hence I was more than eager to try Skin MD Natural, moreover it contains none of those questionable ingredients so I knew I had try this lotion.

Just 5 minutes after applying the Skin MD Natural lotion, I noticed a significant difference as the itchiness and redness were greatly reduced! Throughout the 8-week period since I’ve started using it, my skin condition has improved.

The lotion is non-greasy, even textured, and is very gentle on my dry skin. My skin now feels soft and moisturized. What a fantastic product!”

“One of my personal issues with most lotions is that they burn. Anyone with Eczema knows how painful lotions can be. Skin MD Natural is so gentle on the skin and does not burn at all. Fragrance can be another issue. This is fragrance free! I liked that so that I can layer my own fragrance without the lotion and perfume clashing.”

“I ordered Skin MD last year and I have to say it certainly is more effective than any other type of lotion I have tried in the past.

I live in the United Kingdom and work in a very dusty archive room in the British Library. My eczema is very reactive to dust and it was hell until I started putting on Skin MD. My skin felt more secure and I had less itchy outbreaks. The eczema is bad around my neck and face and it’s hard to cover those areas in day-to-day life. Even though my eczema stems internally, at least I have good knowledge knowing that my skin is being looked after externally. Having the lotion on felt like a secure blanket over those areas and my day goes smoothly without any or very mild irritations.

I have ordered two more bottles to last me for a longer period so that my skin can heal longer and faster without any missed days of putting on the lotion.

Thanks to all the guys at Skin MD Natural!!!”

“My 4 year old daughter has eczema on her wrists. We’ve been using a small amount of Skin MD on her wrists at night for a week and it’s much, much better. Not all raw looking like it has been for the last few years! That’s some great lotion!”

“I used Skin MD Natural on a patch of eczema on my neck. In a matter of days, the itchy patch of skin was both looking and feeling much better. The lotion is both fragrance free and paraben free, so I decided to try it out on my infant son, who suffers from very sensitive skin, as well as numerous allergies and eczema. After two applications, his skin looked great. It wasn’t irritated from the lotion at all, and the dry patches on his legs had shrunk considerably.”

“My face is very sensitive and I have eczema which has been acting up on my face. So I tried the lotion on my face and was very surprised when I put it on, my face got a little redder but the lotion did not hurt (like everything else does) then after a few minutes the redness calmed down and I was able to put on my face makeup. When my eczema acts up I am normally unable to wear any makeup because it just really hurts my skin and makes my break-out worse.

I have been using the lotion for about two weeks now and I am very happy with it. The eczema on my face is almost gone. Now I just have a few really dry patches, which are healing. I definitely recommend anyone who has any type of skin problem to try this product. It really works.”

“Being a sufferer of Psoriasis, Eczema and having naturally dry skin I am the perfect guinea pig for this lotion. Having only used for a few days I have already noticed the difference. To begin with, my face is much softer. I was using a heavy moisturizer believing it to be perfect for my skin, considering it’s very dry, and yes it did moisturize but at the same time brought on pimples.

Since using this shielding lotion the pimples have reduced dramatically and my skin remains soft.

Going onto the rest of my body, my elbows and knees had heavy psoriasis on them, since using it has reduced. As I said earlier it has only been a few days since I got my hands on this product, but to have reduced my psoriasis I’m telling you is a shock. Anyone who suffers from psoriasis knows how hard it can be to reduce it without undergoing UV treatment or thick chemically treated lotions. I am convinced this is a brilliant product!

For the people out there who don’t have skin conditions and just need a moisturizer this works”

“Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™. This stuff was a God Send for not only me but my daughter as well, she has eczema and in the winter time it flares up pretty badly. I have been looking for a long time for a lotion that would be strong enough to keep her eczema at bay and yet gentle enough for her baby skin.

I have tried many products and I think I have finally found the one that will work. Having a daughter that loves to spend time taking a bath 2-3 times a day (she gets that from me) it’s so hard to find something to keep her skin from drying out and her eczema flaring up. Well I found it with Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™.”

“It is getting to be that time of the year that my skin gets all dry and I get eczema on parts of my body. It seems the older I get the more sensitive my skin gets. Moisturizers and lotions become a daily necessity and they don’t always get the job done. Skin MD Natural sent me their Shielding Lotion™ to try. I had never heard of their product but I am enjoying using it and my skin has been much less itchy so far.”

“The freezing cold is taking a toll on my hands, you can see that that they’re VERY dry. The Skin MD lotion is light weight but very hydrating and absorbs easily. The texture is smooth and non-sticky.

After a few minutes you can noticeably see the difference, the skin on my hand is smoother, less red, and soft to touch. In the beginning you’ll have to reapply a few times throughout the day to help restore your skin. After a while, your skin should be able to retain hydration better leading to less applications.
What really got me was seeing the lotion workin’ it on my eczema! I have a mild case of chronic eczema on my arm and its been keeping it at bay. This is great since steroid creams can be so harmful.”

“I received a bottle of Skin MD Natural and couldn’t wait to try it. I’ve been keeping tabs on their reviews and have read positive things about it. Not only do I have rosacea, but I also have a mild case of eczema. I say “mild” because I really only have a patch on my leg that keeps bothering me. My daughter on the other hand has a pretty bad case of it. She gets flare-ups on her legs, elbows, behind her ears, and over her eye. With that said, I really can’t complain.

The prescription we use is a steroid cream, which can be harmful to our skin. It is so harmful that they don’t recommend you use it for longer than 2 weeks. My hands have also taken a beating this winter. I have been excessively and obsessively washing my hands because of the flu bugs and colds that have been going around. I have tried to keep them moisturized with various over-the-counter lotions and creams, but I still don’t see a huge difference.

So, I couldn’t wait to try Skin MD Natural. I put it on and immediately noticed how different it was from other products I have tried. When researching the product for my review I learned that the difference between Skin MD Natural and other lotions and creams is that Skin MD Natural is a Shielding Lotion™. This is a new concept in skin care.
As someone who suffers with dry skin, I absolutely recommend this product.”

“These cold, dry Canadian winters sure take it’s toll on my hands, and this year it was worse than ever before. Since having Baby Bird I have noticed my skin get drier and my eczema, that I once had as a child, has come back. Even Papa Bird and Baby Bird have had a rough, dry winter.

I like this Shielding Lotion™ for my every day use. It comes with me to my work place every day. I work in administration, so I deal with paper, paper, paper – and nothing sucks the moisture out of your hands faster than handling lots of paper.

My favorite feature is that it is not an oily lotion. It goes on light and disappears with no oily aftermath which is great when you are handling documents that you don’t want to get dirty. I can put it on, then get right back to work without feeling like I need a towel to wipe it off.”

“I have had pretty severe eczema in the past. Nothing has ever seemed to work. Ever. And it used to be pretty hard to find things that I could use; things that were fragrance free. It was hard to find things that would relieve the itch without being packed full of steroids or other junk. And when a company is willing to post their clinical trials on their website, the product must be pretty good and worth giving a shot.

So once I received my trial bottle in the mail, I immediately read the directions so that I could get started using this product. It was actually perfect timing, because Fall was starting to set in, heaters were starting to come on, and my skin was starting to get very dry and itchy and I already had a few cracks on my hands.

So I read the instructions and it said that you are supposed to put it on every 2-8 hours until your moisture level improves and then continue just once every 12-24 hours. I applied every 2 hours for an entire day and then every 12 hours after that.

My hands are so improved. I cannot believe the difference this lotion has made. I like that the lotion soaks in very quickly and it does not have a greasy feeling at all. After just a few applications, I could feel the difference in the skin on my hands. After a day, one of the cracks on my hand had already started to close up and heal. I have been using it a couple of weeks now and I put it on when I get up in the morning and then before I go to bed at night. I can definitely see and feel the difference in my skin from previous years. It did not seem to help the itching too much, but by healing the skin, it decreased the itching.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone that has severe dry skin, eczema or psoriasis.”

“I have been using Skin MD Natural for about four weeks now and am seeing such a remarkable change in my skin, especially my hands. I am a bit of a germ freak and wash my hands many times a day. I find that my hands in the winter become itchy, start to crack and generally don’t look very good. Using this product has made my hands smooth, soft and there are no cracks! The thing that really amazed me was, I seem to get a mild case of eczema on my arms in the winter – I don’t know why. After about a week of using the shielding lotion, the eczema completely cleared up! I did not have to go to the doctor to ask for the cream he usually prescribes.

I would definitely recommend this lotion to anyone that has a problem with dry skin – whether it be arms, legs or hands. This fragrance free lotion is light, non greasy and a just little goes a long way!”

“I have been using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ over the past few weeks. My dry, sensitive skin requires daily moisturizing with quality, emollient ingredients to remain smooth and supple. What impressed me the most about this shielding lotion is it’s ability to help improve minor skin conditions as well as moisturize.

Several years ago, I had a strong allergic reaction to Lush products. I was so excited when Lush opened a Philadelphia location that I purchased shampoo, conditioner, various soaps, bath bombs and massage bars. I ended up with weeping eczema on my legs and hands. It took many months for the skin on my calves to heal. I was left with a small oval of redness that would not respond to any treatment. There was only discoloration and no dry skin texture. I assumed this was scarring from the eczema.

I used Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ and my skin showed visible signs of healing in three days. After a few weeks of use, the discoloration has faded so much that it is barely noticeable. I showed a friend of mine and she was so impressed she is looking into purchasing Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ for her husband, who suffers from occasional outbreaks of eczema. I am very grateful for this product.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ also helped heal dry skin on my upper arms. When I was a teenager, I had an issue with Keratosis Pilaris, a skin condition that causes tiny bumps on the upper arms. I still have a slight appearance of this condition. I noticed the shielding lotion helped soften the skin and seemed to minimize Keratosis Pilaris. I really wish Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ had been available when I was a teenager. I will definitely recommend it to my sisters for their teenage girls.”
