Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion


RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $9-$10 at drugstores

THE SKINNY: Despite the packaging, I was not really expecting a feminine lotion from Gold Bond. But they proved me wrong with Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion. The smooth formula went on well and seemed to hydrate my skin for hours (and was nothing like the medicinal feel you get from some other Gold Bond products.)

But the scent was a little too feminine and overly fake and flowery. I would prefer something lighter. The good news is that the smell did not stick around too long.

The "Silk Softness" formula, which I tried, claims to have seven moisturizers to keep a women's skin feeling great. My sample only had enough for one application so I can't speak to this claim. The lotion also comes in a "Pearl Radiance" formula which has small particles that reflect light.

KEEP OR TOSS: I liked the lotion (other than the super flowery scent), but not enough to trade in my old-faithful Curel, which I reviewed back in October.

CHECK IT OUT: Visit the Gold Bond site for  $1 off coupon while they last. Note this product is brand new and may not be stocked everywhere yet. Keep you eyes open for it soon.
