Considering the number and variety of skin therapy lotion brands on the market butting nozzles for the right to lubricate our hands, a visitor from another planet might surmise that mankind’s most insidious plague is dry skin. So we were understandably a little skeptical when Skin MD asked us to sample its shielding lotion for a possible feature on Wishing Willow. Would this be yet another repackaging of the same basic twenty-odd unpronounceable chemicals found in seemingly every laboratory-produced lotion? We were pleasantly surprised to find just the opposite. In addition to containing an impressive list of all-natural substances that set it apart from the herd, Skin MD makes good on three key qualities it promises: a non-greasy formula, an effective healing property, and the benefit of supporting the skin’s own moisturizing ability. In other words, it's less of a makeover and more of a personal trainer for one's own skin cells. (Coincidentally, we discovered that it makes a very serviceable aftershave lotion as well.)
Unless you're one of the lucky ones out there whose skin glistens like a salamander's on even the most arid of winter days, you might as well face the fact that your face and body need more moisturizing protection than the body can naturally afford. Dry skin also ages one's appearance dramatically, and may be the reason the word "tired" is so often used to describe your countenance (enough is enough!) The concentrated powers of Skin MD mean that full-body coverage can be had with just a little dab, and results may be noticeable immediately. And as a means of getting their brand out to an even wider audience, Skin MD is offering a bottle of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion with SPF 15 ($25 value) free to the winner of today’s giveaway.

Ok, so now I regret my wording of this giveaway. You poor, poor people! I wasn't entertained, but rather wished I had 200 bottles of Skin MD for everyone. I could only choose one :( Congrats Daphne R! I sure hope this helps your skin!
