I have to confess that I love this as a daytime face cream. I know most people use it on dry hands or as a body lotion, but this gives my normal to dry face a heaping dose of moisture that absorbs well and is totally non-greasy. I use it before sunscreen or makeup and have had no ill effects with makeup smearing off or anything like that. It makes my skin feel dewy and firm. While some reviewers mentioned that it didn't absorb quickly for them, my skin drinks this up within 30 seconds. It has a definite fragrance, but I find it to be a fresh and clean scent. I still like to indulge in higher-end face creams for nighttime wear, but I stopped wasting my money on pricey day creams that proved ineffective or greasy or BOTH. No need for them, since I found that Gold Bond Ultimate is my answer to a balanced daytime complexion.

I have repurchased this product many times! It is THE CURE for winter dry leg syndrome (you know, dry and itchy...then you scratch even in your sleep...bleeding...gross). I didn't discover this until my THIRD Michigan winter but it would have saved me a lot of trouble!
And yet, now I am in extremely-hot-and-humid summer in the South, and Gold Bond is still the bomb. I had abandoned it briefly, thinking it would feel suffocating and lotion-y in this weather. But it turns out that my dry legs do not care that it is summer! Still with the dry and scratching and bleeding and worse yet - had to try and shave around all of that.
I went back to Gold Bond out of desperation, and I now realize that it is truly a year-round solution. It's giving my legs a chance to heal, and doesn't feel suffocating like so many other lotions do. My husband uses it, too, and purchases it in bulk at Costco. Love it.

This is the best, most healing lotion I've used ever. My hands become red, chapped, cracked, and they bleed every time the weather turns cold. This is only lotion that does anything for my hands -- and you name it, I've tried it. It is not too expensive when you buy in bulk at Costco. It is also really good for sensitive skin. My 9 year old has extremely reactive skin, and this lotion is great for him. I have even used it on my face as a night cream when the weather has gotten the best of me. I've purchased this product again and again and again.

Wow, loved loved loved this! I have tried everything from bag balm to Aquaphor to Burts Bees, all of it! This is the best to date! Not exactly cheap, but refreshing smell, lasts through a few washings, and really permeates skin!

WOW. This is the best winter lotion EVER. I can't believe I waited so long! This is not just for old people folks. I no longer itch because my skin is so moisturized so well. I will forever be a fan of this stuff and I plan on recommending it to everyone. ♥♥♥

OMG!! I have finally found the perfect cream for my totally bad cracked hands in the winter. My hands gets this ugly black shadow cast on them. They get ugly, and they hurtttt so bad. About a month ago, they had sores on them from cracking so badly. I mean it gets terrible for me in the winter time! they look like lizard skin or something, they get extremely hard. So I ran across this lovely cream for .99 cents. I said I will give this a try, why not? Oh my goodness, I put this on for the first time yesterday, and OMG it's like medicine, it worked right away!! It didn't take no time for this stuff to work.While my mother swears by mane n' tale hand cream. Well mane n' tale doesn't have anything on goldbond healing skin therapy. When I would try other products, my hand would burn. But this stuff is soo much better! I mean it worked instantly and my hands wasn't all greasy either, this is just perfect! My hands feel soo much better, it was a instant relief, and they are now smooth, soft, and no cracks. I will go and buy the big bottle and keep this stuff in with me at all cost!

I have dry sensitive skin and I do not understand the love with this product at all. The fragrance is offensive to my skin and my nose. My hands have been so itchy since using this. I am going back, check that, RUNNING BACK, to my CeraVe. This is so irritating to my skin, doesn't seem to hold in moisture or make my skin feel nice. Don't fall into the hype.

this is the fastest absorbing lotion i've ever tried, i was actually surprised by how fast it absorbed into my skin. the smell is light and the cream is thick. it did a really great job with my DRY hands and pretty much brought them back to life! i definitely go through a couple of these during the winter. it's a little more expensive than the other lotions at the drugstore but worth it for me.

This is a review for Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Aloe. For the last few winters my hands have gotten so dry and cracked on the finger tips, I tried all kinds of lotions and nothing helped. I decided to try Gold Bond last winter and what a difference. I love how the lotion is thick but absorbs fairly quickly, the scent is extremely light and fades away quickly, and my hands are left feeling soft and smooth. So far this winter no dry patches between my fingers, no cracks on my finger tips. I Love Gold Bond!!

I absolutely love this moisturizing cream. It's thick, puts a protective barrier on the skin to protect it from wind, dryness and water. I am an artist and work with my hands. When I have big projects, I'm constantly washing my hands, not to mention using paint solvents which dry out my hands. I put a light layer of this on my hands before I start painting (My art sessions range from a few hours to all day). This keeps my hands from looking ragged!! I also used this on my cheeks after I got a bad windburn and it immediately calmed them down and within a few days, I was healed. I keep this in my purse and by my sink at home. I wouldn't be without it!

I don't believe in miracle products, but this comes pretty close. I grabbed it from Wegmans (it's probably available in every major supermarket and drug store) when a friend recommended it for two strange, sandpaper-like, reddish patches of skin that had developed on either side of my neck. I blamed the dryness of the oncoming winter for those strange patches, but my normal lotions and even my night cream didn't make those patches go away, so I didn't have high hopes for this lotion actually working.
Four days later, after using this in the morning and at night before I sleep, the patches are almost totally gone. The skin there is still a little rough, but I feel like that'll be gone after one or two more days. I am THRILLED!
Overall, this lotion is just fantastic. It smells AMAZING (like fresh cut aloe) and has a strange texture to it, rather like a mix between a lotion and Vaseline. It goes on kind of heavy and does take a while to sink it, but I'll tolerate that because it gives my skin intense hydration that lasts all day, even after spending a whole day at the office. This is one hardcore lotion! I HIGHLY recommend it for wintertime use. I don't see myself using it during the summer, but I have oily skin so it may work just as well all year round for someone with dry skin.

Love this stuff! Thank heavens it doesn't smell like Gold Bond powder!

This is the best hand cream I've ever used. I wash my hands a lot and they get very dry. Usually they're just red, flaky and itchy, but sometimes they crack and hurt. This stuff is the only product that takes care of the extreme dryness. It's very thick so I can only use it when I'm not going to need my hands for a while, such as before bed or when watching t.v. For intensive moisturizing, I coat my hands with a thick layer, rub it into my cuticles and put socks on my hands before bed. Then I go to sleep with the socks on and wake up to smooth, moist hands. This product is way better than any other hand lotion I've tried!

This stuff is amazing! This summer I got a terrible sunburn on my legs; after the pain finally went away (after several days of using lidocaine gel) I went looking for something with aloe to help heal my skin, which I feared was permanently damaged. After about a week of using this I couldn't believe how much my skin had improved! I saw the inflammation and a lot of the redness subside very quickly, and my skin was left wonderfully soft. Highly recommended if you need some serious help! One lippie off because it takes a long time to absorb and can be a little messy because it's so thick.

I actually bought the generic Meijer version of this, which has the exact same ingredients and is pretty much a dead on dupe for the brand name for a few dollars less.
Anyway, I'm a big fan of this stuff. It's extremely thick and goes on more like a balm than a lotion, so you really have to work at it to spread it out over your skin. As thick as it was, I found it absorbed very quickly and kept my skin moisturized throughout the day. I'm a nurse, so I have to wash my hands constantly, and this stuff morning and night is enough to repair my dry hands. I may update this review for the winter when it is put to the true test.
The packaging is a simple pump with a "close" option, which I really like for travelling. This is also FANTASTIC on the lips and I use it for an eye cream too! For the lips, I spread a pea size amount on my lips and the skin surrounding it (it doesn't clog your pores, which is great). I then top it with some chapstick to seal it in. I do this in the morning and at night, and my lips feel like satin. I love it! As for an eye cream, I only apply it at night. It's great for restoring moisture after removing my makeup.
I will surely repurchase and recommend :)

This stuff is very thick. It does moisturize nicely...initially. But the thing is, it doesn't really help with dryness long-term. I use this stuff everyday, but my skin is basically just as dry as it ever was.
BUT, the thing that really bothers me, is that this lotion takes foreverrrr to dry/absorb. Seriously. Like 30 minutes. No joke. Which is extremely annoying if I use it before I get dressed in the morning.
That said, I will not repurchase. But funnily enough, even though it takes forever and day to absorb, it's not really oily/greasy. I like to use it on my face, and it doesn't break me out or leave me oily at all.

i used this product after i was left with burns on my face due to experimenting with apple cider vinegar and other at home remedies to eliminate my acne. this lotion effectively removed redness and within a few days helped remove the burns completely. an absolute miracle. makes your skin super soft, too.

This is my daily lotion. Its pretty thick but thats wut i love about it. Its great for those of us with sensitive skin who r prone to razor bumps. I use this rite after I get out of the shower when my skin is still a bit damp...locking in the moisture. Helps prevent razor irritation and bumps for me...also great for dry elbows. I've tried many lotions but this is the only one that keeps my elbows smooth all day and over time has actually softened them up...love it!!! I usually purchase this at walmart for i believe $8 and change. I buy the one with the pump since it is a larger size. One thing ppl may not like about this lotion is that it leaves a bit of a film or stickyness to the skin for a while after its been freshly applied. I'm not sure how to describe but its obvious to the touch....when I first started using it my DH touched my legs and commented on how smooth they were but went on to say that they felt a bit waxy lol. O well....I love gold bond....very moisturizing...I live in FL but i use it all yr long since my skin is a bit dry.
