What makes Skin MD different from other lotions is that it does not clog the pores, but instead, provides a breathable layer of protection over the skin. If the skin is still able to get air, it promotes faster healing. Soaps and detergents strip our skin of its natural barrier of protection and most moisturizers only provide a temporary replacement of moisture, but Skin MD is a shielding lotion that strengthens the skin's natural barrier and helps to restore the skin to its natural condition while protecting it from further damage.
By using a shielding lotion that bonds with the outer layer of your skin you can keep irritants out and moisture in. Most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture, they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the skin's dehydration," writes Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in cosmetic dermatology. (from the website)What I really liked about the formula that I received for review, is that it also contained a sunscreen--SPF 15. I like to apply it under my make-up for added protection when going outdoors. Since I have issues with acne, I like the fact that it won't clog my pores, thus doesn't cause more acne. It goes on smoothly, not too thin and it absorbs quickly! Best of all, it is scentless, and so if you work someplace where scents can be an issue, as I do, then this is not going to be one of those lotions that you have to save for home use. Take it with you! Use it and be confident that it is doing its job. It works with numerous types of skin conditions and problems from psoriasis and eczema to hives and rosacea, and is a great product for conquering dry skin.

(from website)I found it to be a very good product and I carry it with me wherever I go. It doesn't take very much and so a little does go a long way. As for how it works as a sunscreen? I am very fair skinned, and I used it while we went swimming at a water park. I was really concerned as if it didn't work, I'd be burnt crisp...but it did work. In fact, since it is water resistant, I only had to apply it once and it lasted the whole day! (I did reapply it to my daughter's cheeks more than once as her cheeks did turn a little red, but she likes to swim underwater and submerges her whole head beneath the water).
