Kat McGivern Review & Giveaway


I love music, I listen to it while at the grocery store, driving in the car and often times when I am cleaning house! When you hear an artist that you love, what do you usually do? I share!

Kat McGivern is a sassy, spunky, fun and talented musician. She not only sings, plays guitar and the keyboard, she is an awesome songwriter too. She is Boston based and started her career at 13, performing at local mic nights. Kat taught herself traditional Gaelic ballads and shortly after started classical training. She eventually abandoned classical music and college to record her first album. She then quit music for two years to go back to school and realized that it was music she loved.

'Kamikaze Heart' was released November 23, 2010 along with 7 other songs. 'Kamikaze Heart' is about her inability to walk away from the things she loves. It reached the Top 10 on FMQB's AC Top 40 chart.

Kat said, 'I see myself a bohemian Judy Jetson with a bad attitude,' and that's how I would describe her and her music. Bohemian but with a good attitude! Her unique sound is what makes me love her and her music.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review & Giveaway

As we get older our skins elasticity isn't what it used to be. The skin becomes thinner and therefore loses it's moisture, starts to become dry, flaky and can even become itchy. It isn't something we should be embarrassed about but we often are.
I started getting dry skin on and around the scar on my upper arm and it won't go away. Yeah I am sure people will understand but I get enough people staring at it without drawing more attention to it!
Before using Skin MD Natural.

I was recently sent a bottle of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion to try out. I was a little hesitant and must admit when I first put it on didn't really like the watery texture and thought it would just stay on my hands like a greasy watery lotion, but it didn't. Shortly after rubbing it on, it soaked into my skin and I felt as though I had a layer or 'shield' that was protecting my skin. I don't have the dry skin on or around my scar anymore and it actually feels a lot better. I also have a c-section scar that itches like crazy and it often times feels as though it's going to tear open. I place some of the Skin MD Natural Shielding lotion on it after I get out of the shower and don't get that feeling anymore. Needless to say, I found a new part of my skin care routine.
After using Skin MD Natural

Skin MD Natural shielding lotion does the real work to prevent dry skin in two ways.
First, it assists the inner layers of skin to absorb moisture. The humectant(an ingredient that attracts moisture)used in Skin MD Natural is unique that it has been laboratory tested to be 6 times more effective than any other you will find in common creams.
Second, a shielding lotion enhances the power of the op layer of the skin to resist environmental irritants while protecting the inner natural moisture.
This can be a big benefit for those who work in the medical profession, cook, garden wash dishes or are constantly washing their hands because Skin MD Natural helps skin retain its natural moisture and oils in the face of all those irritating soaps and chemicals.

What dermatologists say:
"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.

"A conventional lotion is not formulated to protect the skin like a shielding lotion does. Conventional lotions only add surface moisture to temporarily alleviate the dryness or itching. Shielding lotions are an effective dry-skin treatment 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.

Skin MD Natural is not only for dry skin it's also used to address severe dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. People with sensitive skin and those of us who like to live naturally will appreciate that Skin MD Natural is hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, parabens and colorants. It is made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on he FDA's 'most safe' list.

Skin MD Natural is offering one Ma21cuteboy reader a bottle of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion!
