WOW! It's been awhile, huh? I'd like to say it's because I'm shredding my little brains out, but unfortunately, that's not entirely the case.

We have lots and lots of exciting things happening in the Brock house ~ however, I can not share quite at this moment, but I promise, AS SOON AS I CAN, you will all know!

I have SO much to update you on and PROMISE ~ OH YES, I PROMISE, I am back to my regular blogging!

BUT FIRST ~ Since I have neglected my sweeties, I'm doing a giveaway! YES, YES I AM!

The wonderful people over at Skin MD Naturals contacted me after I posted about going gluten free - which, I must tell you, BEST THING I have ever done! They sent me a bottle of their Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion. NOW, if you follow me on Twitter, you know I have been complaining of ultra dry skin on my hands. Peeling, PAIN, just plain 'ol ugly hands ... y'all, this stuff is AMAZING! It cleared it up right away and my hands are so wonderfully soft! It did take about a week, but let me tell you, this mama is SOLD!

This is what their website says:

"Shielding lotion is a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better. It is a big advantage that shielding lotions are light and go on without a greasy mess," says Dr. Brian Zogg, a dermatologist in Albert Lea, MN.

"When you have dry, itchy skin you know that the protective outer layer of skin has been stripped away. In southern Minnesota most people need to use a shielding lotion. In the winter they all get very dry skin. We also recommend shielding lotions for anyone who is exposed to chemicals in their work environment. Your skin is exposed to irritants and chemicals almost every day, even in a normal household environment, so a shielding lotion can be a useful dry skin care solution for most people.. And it won't create the negative moisture message skin can get from conventional lotions.

The artificial moisturizers in conventional creams and lotions can send a signal to the moisture producing parts of your skin that enough moisture is present. Your skin then makes less of the natural moisture needed to resolve a dry skin problem. With a shielding lotion you protect your own natural oils and moisture in the skin, so it heals faster," says Dr. Zogg.

"A conventional lotion is not formulated to protect the skin like a shielding lotion does. Conventional lotions only add surface moisture to temporarily alleviate dry skin or itching. Shielding lotions stay on because they bond with the skin and protect it for long periods of time. With this protection in place your skin keeps its own moisture in and has a chance to use this natural moisture in the deep layers of the skin to heal itself," states Dr. Lisa Benest, a board certified dermatologist of Burbank, CA.

It's also:
Dermatology tested
No animal products or testing
Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic
Fragrance and colorant free
Paraben free

And guess what? The wonderful people at Skin MD Natural are going to send one lucky reader their very own bottle of Shielding Lotion!
