Stinks and has parabens
Service was fast. Two problems with this product:It has parabens.It REEKS. After a few minutes it smells like an old lady in a garden. Yuck!
Excellent in every manner. Will definitely keep on hand 🙂
My quest for decent moisturing lotion began several years ago with chemo/radiation cancer treatments that literally destroyed my skin. Burns, itching, dry scaly areas that just felt awful and, at times, could be painful. I was desperate for relief and tried about 13 different products including those containing seaweed, aloe and oatmeal.Gold Bond was the clear winner for me. This restoring lotion and its brother, the ‘healing’ lotion worked the first time and gave me not only the relief I so desperately needed but actually healed and softened my skin in just a few days. I can’t say I have a favorite of the two because they both absorb quickly, have the most subtle scent (not feminine or masculine or medicinal – the scent is almost not even there), they don’t leave a greasy/sticky residue, and they both provide instant relief. Having to be so careful about touching things with my immune system so compromised I am constantly washing my hands or using those hand sanitizers that are everywhere, which pretty much feel like pouring gasoline on an open cut, so my hands are a wreck. The restoring lotion seems to be a teense thinner and smoother during application while the healing is a bit thicker but both go on smoothly and it seems to me that I can actually feel it penetrating the skin. I don’t seem to have to keep reapplying it throughout the day and I find it also works amazingly well on my feet and heels. I will say it is easier to apply the restoring lotion as a body lotion, say, after showering because it spreads faster, but I have used both following a shower and they work very well.I have one of these two lotions in each room of the house, and both of them in the bathroom at all times. They can be a bit expensive so I look for sales and gobble them up when I find a good deal. I don’t think anyone would be disappointed in this product.p.s. I did try the Gold Bond medicated (green bottle) and those are great (but thick)as well with one not so stellar exception. If you’ve got it on your hands and you touch your eyes, it is going to burn like crazy. I have allergies so after a few times of making this mistake of rubbing my eyes after I’ve applied the medicated lotion, I decided to forego the medicated and stick with the restoring & healing products.Edit: August 2011. When I’m nearing the bottom of any lotion bottle, I usually remove the pump, place the bottle upsidedown on a coffee mug that will hold the threaded cap opening a little above the base of the mug, and let the lotion dribble out at its own pace so I don’t have to waste that last inch or so. This little trick works great with the ‘restoring’ lotion but after 2 days of letting the ‘healing’ (that’s the thicker one of the two) lotion sit upsidedown on its coffee mug, it hadn’t dribbled a bit. Nada. Nuttin’ honey. That is how rich this lotion is. I tried pounding it against my palm to get it started and that didn’t make any difference either. I finally took my kitchen shears (for cutting chicken and bones and the like) and cut the bottom of the container off that held the remaining lotion. Because that leaves a rather sharp edge all the way around the top where I cut it, I used a kitchen spatula to scoop out the lotion and put it in a small ramekin dish so I could get at it easier. And to keep the top of it clean from bathroom powder and hair and such, I covered it with a small piece of plastic wrap. That got bothersome, though, each time I wanted to use it so I removed the plastic wrap and just set one of those plastic lids for cans over the top of it. Easy on/easy off/easy use of product. You know the lids of which I speak, those plastic lids one can get to cover leftover dog/cat food that comes in cans.Edit: October 2011 These 2 products remain my winners even now. I had several products on hand after trying so many so I was using those on my heels/feet. One of my side effects from the chemo/radiation treatments is a prediabetic state (it also runs in my family so I may be plagued with diabetes any day now), but proper foot care was pounded into me early on by my medical team when this side effect was discovered. I had been using up all those other products on my feet but still got the bleeding cracks and scaling. The family was calling me “lizard feet” so that will tell you how my feet looked. U-G-L-Y! Anyway, I finally decided to try the ‘healing’ lotion on my feet/heels. 3 days was all it took. My feet look like a 2-year-old’s feet. Soft, soft, soft. No cracks or bleeding. And they aren’t sore and don’t hurt when I walk. Nor do my heels crack open and bleed just by standing up. I cannot say enough good things about this product line. I hope you try it and have the results I have had. Not only would that make my day, I think it would make yours as well.
good, but not my favorite
All Gold Bond products are first rate, but this is not one of my favorites … I have VERY dry skin, and it is not thick enough for me, a bit thin for my needs. My favorite is another Gold Bond product!Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Shea Butter Lotion 14 oz (396 g)
Prefer this to Eucerin…
I prefer this to the Eucerin I was using for the ceramides because the Eucerin was too thick and took too long to dry. This is much lighter. My only critique is the scent. It’s not bad… it’s just a bit strong for my taste.
Like it very much
I haven’t used it long enough to know if it’ll help protect my thin skin. But love the clean smell and how my skin feels so smooth after application. It even reduces the wrinkles on my hands.
This stuff rocks
I used to order very expensive lotion from an organic company for years. I tried this stuff at the recommendation of a friend, and man…..what a difference! This is great. It smells nice, it’s reasonable priced, and it more than does the job. It’s even healed my falling apart lips. Go for it.
This lotion is great for very dry skin. I live in the desert and it is very dry here. I use this right after my shower.
Found this product to really give my skin needed moisture. It seems to penetrate the upper layers of the skin well. I have pretty sensitive skin. I can use this all over without ANY itching, which is a big deal for me. Recommended.
I honestly can’t say if it has any lasting effect due to I’ve only used it a few times so far, but man, when I put it on my skin feels a decade younger, soft, and….. radiant for lack of a better word. Not greasy or oily or any other yucky feeling, just feels soft and, well, if youth had a feeling this is it!
I am glad I ordered this product from Gold Bond. The lotion is very smooth and works well to eliminate dry skin. Fragrance is very mild too. Would definitely buy it again.
