What Eczema Sufferers Say About Shielding Lotions:

return to the "What Is A Shielding Lotion" page

Kathy Didcoate,
Glendale, CA

I have to tell you this as I am so impressed. I had eczema and psoriasis in my 20's and again in my 40's. I was covered with it but got over it after some years with homeopathic treatment - however my skin remained ruined like leather especially my hands and was extremely sensitive to detergents and soap and other toxins. I would just break out in red itches. It's no fun being over 40 but having 80-year-old hands. I tried to handle the dryness with various hand lotions several times a day which of course would wash off and often were greasy, leaving my fingerprints all over the expensive glossy designs I was working with.

I found that I only needed to put the shielding lotion on once a day instead of three times a day with other products. And after about a week I saw a felt a remarkable difference in my hands - they were soft and stayed soft! I had to look and feel them twice - were these actually my hands? Yes. Skin MD Natural had enabled my skin to become soft from within. It's now got to the stage where I sometimes forget to put it on daily as I don't have that nasty dry skin to remind me. My hands now look so much younger - and it works on my elbows and feet too. So - thank you for Skin MD Natural.

I wanted to say THANK YOU for your shielding lotion product. I have had severe eczema on my hands and patches on my legs for more than five years. My dermatologist prescribed me drugs worth $400. When I ran out, I saw your lotion and got a small bottle. It cured my eczema in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!! And I had a severe eczema, I mean � SEVERE!! I had to have leave of absence from school for all this time, it was so bad. Now I am back to school (I study different skin care programs) and I have been a spokes person for a month now � telling everyone how great it is and showing the bottles I bought, My friend has kids who have dermatitis and she said it was clearing up in days!

I just wanted to say thank you for selling the Gloves In A Bottle - this lotion has transformed my hands and my life. For years I suffered with very bad eczema on the palms of my hands. It was very painful and often got infected.

I bought some Gloves In A Bottle just to see if it worked. Having tried almost every lotion and potion under the sun, I admit I was cynical but it really does work for eczema. Although I still get the odd itch, my hands are virtually clear of any eczema for the first time in 32 years! The skin is smooth and supple and I have been able to grow healthy nails at last. Thank you so much.

I wanted to write a message here to say "Thank You". To me it is not "gloves in a bottle", but more like "Miracle-In-A-Bottle".

I suffer from the effects of psoriasis and eczema on both my feet and my hands, this is topped with allergies to a wide variety items. I have been using steroidal creams and moisturizers, together with oral steroids to help keep it in check. I have suffered with this for about 5 years now, and it's been very bad, to point where I was not able to make a fist or even walk. Even after all this, as soon as I would finish the oral steroid regimen, within 4 to 5 days the psoriasis condition would re-appear with a vengeance.

I was presented with a few samples of your shielding lotion by my Dermatologists. At the point I saw them, my feet were extremely bad, as were my hands. My hands looked like something made up in a Hollywood set for a movie. Well, I began using your product, and after just a few days, my psoriasis damaged hands began to show signs of getting better, and I can actually sleep through the night now. I apply it a bit more often then the suggested use, since my skin cells are in the "fast lane", as compared to normal skin cells. I provided a sample of your product to a co-worker here in the office, his hands were extremely dry, and his wife was allergic to the powder that is placed inside of the latex gloves. After using your product, the allergic reaction stopped, and his hands began to feel much better as well.

Please feel free to use this for endorsement of your product. Once again, THANK YOU for making my life a lot easier and somewhat more normal. My sincere Thanks.


I have been battling dry skin and severe eczema for a long time. I have had different creams from my doctor and I went for a long time to a skin specialist and I've tried it all. Yesterday I went to get some prescriptions filled and they gave me a free packet of Gloves In A Bottle � I put it on at 6PM and my hands were as smooth as a baby's behind and stayed that way.

This morning went back to the pharmacy and bought a small bottle. I have never had anything work so fast and so good. My eczema skin was so bad if I brushed my hand by my face it would actually cut it. I wanted to let you know this stuff is a miracle and I can go somewhere and not be embarrassed by my hands thank you, thank you for coming up with this shielding lotion.

Now and again a product comes along that does far more than what it was originally intended. Gloves in A Bottle is just such a product, I suffer with the "heartbreak of psoriasis" or hand eczema (depends on which doctor I talk to). I have tried fish oil capsules, prescription creams, including Lac-Hydrin, and just about everything else my doctors or I could think of to get relief. The psoriasis treatment of choice is apparently ammonium lactate cream (Lac-Hydrin 12%). As good as it is supposed to be, it is outrageously expensive, messy, sticky and really didn�t soften the thickening skin on my hands. In fact, even with the Lac-Hydrin, the simple act of holding a pencil usually resulted in continued cracks and bleeding fissures all over my palms.

While vacationing in Naples, Florida, my wife saw Gloves In A Bottle and bought it to keep my hands clean while doing projects around the house. Like most things. I let it sit on the shelf until one day my hands were so bad that my wife insisted that I use Gloves In A Bottle to keep hands clean. It did keep my hands clean, but more importantly, my psoriasis or eczema seemed to look and feel better.

So I continue using it on a daily basis � once in the morning, at noon, after dinner, and before going to bed. It has been two weeks now and my left hand has completely healed and looks and feels relatively normal. My right-hand still has one small fissure (3/6 inch long) and a thickened patch about the size of a half a dollar in the middle of my palm. My fingers have healed and edges of my palm are nearly normal. Within another few days, I fully expect that my right hand will be back to normal.

Last night my wife went back and bought three more bottles of this amazing shielding lotion � one for home, one for the office, and another for my truck. Great product!!! Thanks for my relief.
