I'm sure many of you know I want to make an inappropriate joke right now, but I'll restrain myself XD
What they say:
Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance.
Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield.
This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition.
Skin MD Natural uses only the finest natural ingredients, and is focused on urging the skin to be active, and to use its own moisture to effectively heal itself. It is not oily or sticky, doesn't sit on top of your skin leaving a greasy residue on everything you touch, it doesn't rub or wash off easily, is hypoallergenic, fragrance, colorant and paraben free and dermatology tested.

The size relative to my hand.
My take: I'm so glad that I was given a chance to test this product! First off, yes, the bottle does seem rather small for the price and it is not readily available everywhere, so you might have to order online, and shipping is $9.95. But this is one of those situations were VERY LITTLE does indeed go a long way. I need a pea-sized amount for my entire face. Since the texture is milky and liquidy, it covers my entire face evenly and easily. It is a very light and smooth texture though, not thick and uncomfortable and not too watery and wet. It absorbs quickly and just the right amount of hydration and moisture with a healthy, dewy finish, WITHOUT looking oily or shiny. It seems to give general good improvement to my skin tone / complexion as well, but most noticeably, the texture.
I find it great as a base for foundation/BB creams. It makes my skin feel extremely smooth and soft to the touch. It is true to its word and does not feel like something is sitting on your face or smothering your skin. Also, it doesn't leave any greasy residue on your hands like other products I've tried because it can also be use on face, hands, and body (but I only use it for my face).
The best part is, it does NOT make my skin oilier throughout the day, or add excess moisture (which was my main worry)! As most of you know I've been battling with oily skin as a result of getting of YAZ. Although switching to Microgestin has helped 90%, I'm still dealing with slight oiliness at the end of the day in my T-Zone. So having a moisturizer that DOES NOT increase oiliness and gives just the right amount of moisture to dry spots is wonderful! I would reccommend this for any skin type!
Would I repurchase: Yes, I will consider repurchasing, but the product will last me a good while as I don't moisturize every day and I only need a small amount (:
