Reviews for Gold Bond Ultimate Healing

Toulouse · Taken for less than 1 month · May 4, 2019

For Dry Skin "I used the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing product and I got a rash and itching to the point of bleeding on my hands, arms, chest, neck and face. It was a terrible reaction to the product. My 103 yr. old Mother used it and experienced similar reactions to it. After the reaction, I immediately washed it off my Mother and me. She healed after about a week and its taken over a month for my skin to heal. I couldn't go out and socialize with friends because I looked terrible. But, my hands and arms are sensitive and my hands and arms are no sensitive. I can no longer wash dishes with dish soap with them getting itchy. The skin on my hands looks rough and the texture is not the same as it was before I used GB lotion. I've never had a reaction to lotions and creams before using the Gold Bond."

For Dry Skin "Omg I used this gold bond ultimate healing and had the worst experience ever. My entire body felt like it was on fire, the itching was at 10+. It took me a few days to figure what was going on as I was actually using this lotion to stop the itch not realizing that this was the cause. I found out when I was trying to moisturize my feet and they flared up to a 10 immediately. Also I cannot do my dishes as my hands are extremely sensitive. So disappointed with this product."

For Dry Skin "I was also one of the unlucky ones that experienced getting a very bad red, raised, extremely itchy rash. Couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was going on, went to the doctor and got a cortisone shot and was on steroids for a week and nothing helped.... because I kept using the lotion. Finally narrowed it down and googled Goldbond allergic reaction... sure enough it’s the lotion. I guess I’m just thankful I finally figured it out. Definitely won’t be using ever again."

For Dry Skin "I am 78 years old and very active male. In AZ sun a lot. I use Gold Bond Ultimate every few days and it works. I had cysts on my arm and scalp. I put extra Ultimate on it and it went away in less than a week. My dog also had two cysts, guess what, they too went away. I do not use Ultimate but every few days. This 6.8 oz tube will last me over a year. I'm wondering what I should put it on next."

For Dry Skin "I love Gold Bond lotion. It readily soaks into the skin and immediately hydrates. My skin stays hydrated for >24 hrs before I need to reapply. It is the best lotion I have ever tried. It also helps my ezcema. I bottle lasts a long time (months) because a little goes a long way, and you don't need to reapply as often as other lotions. :)"

For Dry Skin "I get awfully dry skin in winter living in the northeast. I bought a travel size of the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing lotion. I use on the tops of my hands as they’re extra chapped and cracked this year also due to increased hand washing. I felt some stinging & burning when first applied because my hands were so dry and cracked. On day three, seems significantly better. I am disappointed though to find out that the lotion contains parabens. That ingredient makes me not want to use it anymore."

For Dry Skin "I have been using Gold Bond Ultra cream for feet at night and almost every night my feet would start itching within minutes of applying to feet quite often. I kept thinking my feet were just so dry that that’s why they would itch at night. I can't believe it took me awhile before I started suspecting it was the lotion causing me to itch my feet raw at night because it’s suppose to be hyper allergenic and moisturize dry feet. Something in it is causing the problem and I’m not sure which ingredient, but I am not using it any longer."

For Dry Skin "I tried using this product to deal with dry hands after repeated hand washing - I am in healthcare. After several days of using the product, I noticed that my hands are actually drier than they were to begin with."

For Dry Skin "Im a diabetic and my feet become very dry. I applied to my feet yesterday and in about 15 minutes it felt like my feet were on fire. Both feet were beet red like I had a second degrees burn. This is first and last time I use this product."

"So I accidentally put this in my diaper instead of regular powder, everything went well until I had a wetting accident, it was warm for a second and then became ice cold. Honestly not a bad experience but, wasn’t expecting it. I guess I found a way of knowing when I pee myself."
