Skin MD Naturals Lotion Review

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is made with some really nice natural ingredients like Aloe and Arnica. It is Vegan, fragrance and color free. I started my week long test by discontinuing all usage of my emu oil products. The first thing I noticed about Skin MD Natural is its rapid absorption rate, it sinks right into the skin and you only need to use a little. It leaves no greasy, oily, or waxy feel either. I like this! I have severely dry, problem skin and before I started using emu oil products had to file my hands every day with a fine callous remover several times a day to remove the coarse sharp alligator skin I develop that tears nylons. I had got to the point where I needed only file my hands once or twice a week. Unfortunately, I had to end testing of this product after Day Four. My skin was so dry it hurt, and ragged due to rough, dry skin. While using Skin MD I had to once again file my hands every day several times a day due to rough, dry skin. I also had to reapply Skin MD Natural about every 2 hours. While Skin MD Natural is a nice lotion, it did not work well for severely dry, problem skin like mine. It would be satisfactory for lightly to moderately dry skin and for those wanting a vegan lotion with many natural ingredients that absorbs quick and leaves no residue on the skin.

Testing Skin MD Natural Lotion

Cat Doss contacted me after she read my blog with an interesting proposition, she wanted to send me full sized bottle of Skin MD Natural Lotion for me to test and review! I have severe skin problems due to health, and the only thing I have ever found that helps is emu oil and my own soy wax lotion tarts, so Skin MD has some fierce competition. I will use it one week and stop using my own emu oil products and tally the results next Tuesday and post a review for you all. You know me, if I find a good product, I like to give kudos and props when they are deserved, even if it is my competetion. There's room for both my products and others too in the market and if it works more power to them! Different things work for different people, so if this helps, great! So let's see what happens!

New Primos Pawtourage Project!

After a year of thinking about it, I finally launched Primo's Pawtourage's newest and most awesome project: a dog breed specific high end doggie gift bag! The dog breed is the Maltese, we will see where it takes us! One bag will be a donation for the American Maltese Association's rescue raffle at their dog show in May 2010, something dear to my heart, as my Maltese Blossom is a rescued puppymill survivor! We will also be launching a retail verison of the same bag! I canvassed for contributing artisans from Etsy and there are now 7 of us involved in the project! Everyone is really enthusiastic and excited, this is so cool! Even if we don't sell one bag we will have had fun and helped out with Maltese rescue! Here is what we have so far: an applique tote bag to hold it all, an embroidered mess bag and towel, a key chain, a placemat, an Eco toy, scrumptious dog treats, a bar of my hand milled dog soap with emu oil, a bar of paw print soap, a 3D Maltese soap dog, and a cool Maltese designed t shirts! This tote bag better be big! I am looking into advertising with Maltese Monthly to get our retail bag off the ground and on the market. I will also offer it through my Etsy shop. We'll be looking at other promotional avenues too. I am so stoked about this project, and to be working with such a cool group of people is awesome! To think: one little 5 pound dog started me on this road! Thank you my dearly beloved Primo. I miss you.
