Skin MD Natural – review & giveaway

Skin care is very important to me.  Between all of the diaper changes, meal preparations, dishes, and the general chaos of a house with a baby and a toddler, my hands take a beating.  I'm afraid to count how many times a day I wash my hands!  This leaves them dry and irritated, especially in the dry winter.
