Gold Bond On Your Face? Crazy, right. But this has been a complete lifesaver. Winter in Canada is dry and cold, and 8 weeks ago my face was dry, itchy, red and lizardly with makeup on. I picked up Clarins' super hydra quench night cream for $60; then later tried Aveda's Enbrightenment cream for $80 - my skin was still dry and paper thin. Then as a last ditch effort, I pulled out my boyfriend's $9 Gold Bond lotion (he uses it for sunburns in the summer) from the medicine cabinet and my skin was IMMEDIATELY relieved. By the next morning, my skin felt smooth, soft and hydrated. I've been using this every night for 8 weeks now. It's the last thing I put on before I go to sleep and it hasn't broken me out. In fact it's helped clear my skin because I no longer have scratchy dry patches on my face blocking my pores. If you live in any of the places that have been recently hit by the polar vortex, give this a try, it's amazing. LOL, he is never getting his Gold Bond back.
Love this, but I think my bottle says Skin Therapy Cream. The fragrance is a little like an orange -- very fresh. There is a pump bottle in my master bath and one by my kitchen sink. Purchased a two or three-pack from Costco (came with a 3.5oz. tube of the cream which sits on my desk at work. This is a really great cream/lotion and I agree with the reviewer that says it lasts from shower to shower.
I use the Target Up & Up version of this.
LOVE THIS SO MUCH. I constantly use lotions for my dry, dry body skin. This soothes and moisturizes without being greasy! It doesn't sting any cracked skin. I don't like oil-based moisturizers, but need something slightly occlusive to lock in moisture, so this is perfect for me. Scent is almost non-existent, just smells like plain lotion to me.
This is for the healing with aloe product. Just had to add this as I was so pleasantly surprised with the results of this lotion. I visited my Mom back in June and she had this by the kitchen sink so I used it often while I was visiting. Once I returned home I noticed it at the grocery store in a bonus size pump dispenser so of course I purchased it and have been using ever since. It's very thick and creamy and feels like it leaves my hands slightly sealed with protection after use, won't last the day but does last a good long while. I've tried it on my body several times and it kept my skin moist from shower to shower, overall I just love the added moisture and protection this lotion provides.
I read the amazing reviews here and had my aunt bring it from the US. I don't think I can get it where I live but if I could, this is the only thing I would buy. It transformed my super dry, previously rough skin into something I see only on models in the magazines. No joke. Best thing ever. Love the pump, so convinient and the price I hear, is also right. I use Body Shop strawberry body butter and it's much pricier only because this is not available where I live.
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.
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.
