Skin MD is a company that specializes in Natural Skin Care. They have a moisturizer that is classified as a "shielding lotion" You can use this lotion on any part of you. It didn't work well on my face but I sure did like it on my feet!
With a "shielding lotion" irritants are kept out and moisture in. (from their website)
Skin MD was very generous and sent me a full size bottle to try out! I was very impressed with the way it didn't feel greasy at all. I also thought it left my body very soft feeling.
I don't have really dry areas so I can't speak for that but their website has many user reviews here. There are some amazing before and after testimonies. If you have some really dry areas, it might be worth a try!!
You can order here or check here to find a store near you.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request? Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your words or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!
As you can see there was plenty of eating going on with the decorating!!
I keep things simple and use Betty Crocker Frosting. I might venture to make my own if I didn't get BC so CHEAP!!!!
Oh and I went to pull out my red food coloring... well somehow I put the bottle away empty because There was none in it.(still baffled about that one)! So we punted and made blue a little nontraditional but they taste awesome and that's the important thing!!
My 3 yr. old loved to decorate with the M&M's I bet you can't guess which ones he did!!
Later in the week I hope to tackle another kind of cookie... We'll see!!
I usually just use a small amout of dough and do a few cut outs at a time. This dough will be very hard since it's cold but as you work it for a minute it should be perfect to roll out! Be sure to put flour down so they don't stick.
You can see that I like them very thin! I love to make the icing cookie ratio about 50/50!!! Gotta Love that Frosting!!!
You can just see the beaming smile! He LOVES TO HELP!!
These are actually baked. I think one of the keys to great sugar cookies is NOT overbaking them. I don't even let them get a hint of brown! It took about 5 min 30 sec. in my hot oven!
And here are the results! I counted about 85 cookies plus a bunch of tiny stars.
You will yield less if you make them fatter of course!
Next up! FROSTING AND DECORATING!!! let the fun and MESS begin!

*** ***** When you purchase the freebies, you must purchase an additional $10. of non-rebated items per transaction to qualify for the rebate. You can get as many freebies as you want per transaction with only one $10. additional purchase. ((**You can get a $10. Gift card if you don't need anything right now!**)) Your rebate will come in the form of a Merchandise Check. Which means you must spend it at Menards, (I just use mine for more freebies!)
It's been reported that you do not have to spend the $10. and you will still get your rebate. Since the ad says you're supposed to I still think we should as to not take advantage of the program. You can use your own judgement! Thanks for letting us know!
You do not need to purchase any additional $$ if you are only getting the rebated items that are not free.
