This is probably the best lotion I have ever used, and I don't like to use any but this kind anymore.
First purchased it after working with concrete without using gloves. Pro-tip: don't do that, it sucks all the moisture out of your hands. This stuff fixed me up when other lotions couldn't. The smell is not bad, but not flowery either, which I liked.
I think it is worth the money. It keeps my hands soft and moisturized, and dries really fast into the skin, so I don't have to wait around for it to dry.
100% will buy again.
Absolutely the best! I am a dry individual, and I have tried many other drugstore lotions because I am kind of an addict. I really hate feeling dry, but you know what else I hate? Really thick, greasy & slippery lotions. They have their uses: it's nice to use Vaseline or Aquaphor or Bag Balm or coconut oil for when you're dry and you need that relief and kind of a hydrophobic barrier. However! I shower in the morning, and I also apply my makeup so I really don't have the time to be massaging in a lotion, or slipping & sliding around slathered in coconut oil. Not to mention how it would be awful pulling on skinny jeans while still in a coat of Vaseline. That's probably my favorite thing about Gold Bond: it does its hydrating job, AND it absorbs so quickly and easily. It isn't sticky at all, which is great for when you need to moisturize your hands but need to get to work right away (happens to me a lot). It also has this lovely light scent. I can't quite place it. If you're sensitive to aromas, you may just want to sniff it first before you buy. I have the larger bottle at home for lotioning after showers, and I keep a smaller one for my hands at work. continued >>
I've been using this for the last few years.
It's an amazing product.
I'm not sure why it's as good as it is, i.e. what is it that's different from all other moisturizers I've tried,?
Anyway, it seems to work almost instantaneously after application
It leaves the skin silky smooth even after showering
I very occasionally get an outbreak of mild psoriasis on my upper arms and this lotion takes care of it within a day or two, nothing else have ever managed that including prescription creams
I only bought it because of reviews here , otherwise it wouldn't have occurred to me based in it's image
This is the best hand lotion for dry, sensitive skin. I had an eczema flare up when winter first started and I could not find a product to help calm my skin, until I tried this on a whim. WOW! In two weeks, my hands were back to normal without a red spot in sight! I use this nightly and after washing my hands throughout the day. My skin is soft and supple. The packaging is standard lotion tube and works for me. The price was very reasonable as well, at about $6, and a tube usually lasts me over a month with daily use. There is a slight smell with the product but it fades very quickly. This is one of my favorite DS products that I will continue to purchase.
The only lotion I can afford that treats my dishydrotic eczema. My hands have not had a flare up in a year! I have a large pump jar at my desk, kitchen counter and in my bathroom.
Most lotions either leave an ointment residue on my hands or make my condition flare up. This leaves a protective barrier ( not overly greasy, but protects hands from drying out through a hand washing.) soaks in well and leaves my hands feeling healthy and soft, even in the dead of winter.
I LOVE the Aloe formula. I tried another one before (don't remember which, sorry), and it wasn't as good. Go for the Aloe.
This lotion is very soothing, softening and smoothing. It doesn't sting your dry, cracked skin like some lotions do. If my hands are rough and scaly before I put it on, I can just barely feel little patches of dryness after. (It's not a miracle, but it's close!) It stays on for a long time and makes your hands feel really nourished and pampered. It's also really good at protecting your hands from the elements during the winter.
The one thing some people may not like about this lotion is that it doesn't "sink in" especially well. You can feel it on your fingers until you wash your hands or it rubs off. (I'm not sure how long it takes to rub off. I normally wash my hands first.) Good luck opening a door with a doorknob if you have this on your hands. LOL. Hmm, I don't mean to give the impression that it's greasy. It's not. It feels almost powdery. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
My HG of dry skin lotions! It is thick and creamy, with a barely perceptible scent. I apply it right after I come out of the shower and my skin feels smooth and moisturized for the next day and a half! It has also worked as a good alternative to Eucerin and Cetaphil as a moisturizer for eczema-prone skin.
This is my favorite body moisturizer I've tried (Aveeno, Burt's Bees body butter, plus others). (1) It does a good job (2) doesn't smell terrible (3) soothes (4) gets me through the winter AND when I'm shaving my legs constantly in the summer. Will continue to purchase.
love love love ~!!
as hand lotion / body lotion
not greasy , effective, scent is decent
I love this lotion. I have the ALOE version which has a mild, fresh scent. This seems to be the lotion I always come back to...so yes I would buy it again and again. It is a little thick but not so much that it creates a problem. It also works really well on my extremely dry and prone to ashiness hands and feet.
