How creepy is your skin? Do you feel so uncomfortable letting anyone know the nature of your skin as being creepy? Well, with the use of Gold Bond lotion you can get back the right skin for your self-confidence and look.
Creepy skin has a particular root cause which may be reversed into a degree. As we age our body stops producing collagen and elastin, the 2 proteins that provide our skin that the young and resilient texture in our youth.
This lead to wrinkles, saggy skin and you guessed it “creepiness” within your own skin.
As time passes, skin loses crucial lipids and proteins, inducing it to seem old before now, and also the skin gets thinner, so hindering skin’s capacity to retain moisture — leaving skin dry and dull-looking.
GOLD BOND Ultimate Power & Resilience is specially formulated for aging skin, using a mix of 7 plumping moisturizers and 3 vitamins together with proteins and lipids to help replenish moisture that’s been missing from the skin throughout the aging process, helping skin appear more powerful and feel much more resilient.
Can I Use This Gold Bond Lotion on the Face?
Despite the claim that this is a body moisturizer, yes you can use it on the face.
How do I know this?
Because the Gold Bond Men’s Essential Lotion, a.k.a Everyday Moisture is marketed for face use, and also contains 10% urea and is almost the same formula without the addition of Ubiquinone (CoQ10). In case you didn’t know, sex has no bearing on the way skin responds to a moisturizer.
Guys don’t need to use different products than women. Skin is skin. Saying a lotion is for “men” or “women” is simply a matter of marketing. Why do companies do this? Because some dudes might feel uncomfortable about buying moisturizers targeted for a lady, so seeing the macho modifier “men” in front of if eases their reservations. To which I say — to hell with.
If you’re a guy and want to buy a “woman’s” lotion then so be it. Cosmetically speaking, there is no difference. And whether you’re a woman or man you’ll still reap the benefits. Besides, your girlfriend or wife will appreciate your new super soft silky skin.
One final note on their other products: I was actually a little confused when I saw there was a “Gold Bond Healing Lotion” because the formula isn’t as impressive as the one we’re reviewing (Gold Bond Restoring Lotion).
The healing lotion doesn’t include nearly as many moisturizing and skin-repairing ingredients, yet despite this it seems to be one of their most popular products.
How Does it Feel on the Skin
It has a nice emollient feel to it. You can feel it smooth out the gaps of dry skin while it’s sinking in. Much like CeraVe Baby, this lotion had a very cosmetically elegant finish — just look at the first and second photos.
You can’t even tell I applied anything but my hand clearly looks visibly smoother! Once it dries, it has a sort of candle wax-like feel on the skin.
It smells like a mix of the green dove bar soap, old lady perfume, and urine. I know that sounds absolutely disgusting. I”m sorry. But it’s not bad! I promise. Yeah… just took another whiff.
It smells like a clean refreshing bar soap. I have to admit, it’s quite strong. Especially if you use it on your face.
The first few times I tried it I actually got a headache (I’m sensitive to fragrances). It’s one of the only downsides about this moisturizer. Sigh….Why? Just why?
I’d rather smell like cat piss than beautiful flowers if it meant my moisturizer wouldn’t be potentially irritating.
How to Use
Apply like you would an ordinary lotion. Despite the fact that urea exfoliates, no wait times are required like with other chemical exfoliates (e.g. salicylic acid).
This should go on as the last step in your routine before occlusives (if you fancy them).
Because this does have 10% urea, it’s probably best practice to not use it more than once a day on the face. You obviously know your skin better than anyone else, so use it as tolerated and watch for any signs of irritation.
The Gold Bond Restoring Lotion is a great great great moisturizer, that I’d love to see more commonly recommended in skincare circles.
