PRODUCT REVIEW: GOLD BOND Ultimate Healing Lotion

Posted July 30, 2015 by Fizzy Pop in Fizzy Pop, Fizzy Pop Collection, Gold Bond, Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion, Pinch Me, product review / 0 Comments

While I’ve been familiar with the Gold Bond line of products for a long time I’ve never actually used them.  Pinch Me provided an opportunity to try not just one Gold Bond item but two!  Before I go any further I have to admit I’m sorta kinda a lotion snob.  I want something that is super moisturizing due to dry skin and excezma.  I want something that smells good though not heavily perfumed.  I want something that absorbs fast but doesn’t leave a greasy feeling residue on my skin.  I want a lot.  Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion delivered on a few of these and missed on a few as well.

We’ll start with what I liked.  I loved the clean fresh scent of the lotion.  It wasn’t heavy nor perfume-y.  It was really fresh and balanced.  I loved the way it left my skin feeling very moisturized and smooth; not the normal rough or papery I typically feel.  I loved that it absorbed fast.  Super fast, like while I was still rubbing it in fast.  On those points the Ultimate Healing lotion was a hit.

However, the product packaging says it’s non-greasy.  For me it really wasn’t.  Perhaps I’m just over sensitive to the idea of what ‘greasy’ is when it comes to lotion.  I felt like there was still moisture on my hands after applying.  They were too ‘slick’ after the lotion had absorbed in and that is not a sensation I like and I really don’t want it in my lotion.  I applied a bit as I sat down to write this review.  I find my hands and fingers feeling slick while they move across the computer and keyboard. 

All in all Gold Bond did really well with the Ultimate Healing lotion if you go point for point on what I want in a lotion.  However, I’m not completely sold only because the greasy after feel is a huge miss for me.  Everything else was great though.  For many people it would probably be a non-issue and it really is a great lotion that offers amazing moisturizing.  I’m just extra sensitive to the feeling it leaves behind and it leaves me with mixed feelings as far as future lotion purchasing decisions.

I did receive this item as a free trial from Pinch Me and any opinions shared in this review are my own.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick

PRODUCT REVIEW: Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick

There’s something to be said for finding the perfect sunscreen.  My entire family uses sunscreen, I use it year round!  Protecting the little ones is a huge priority for me so I was super excited when I was selected by CrowdTap to sample and try the Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen.  Aveeno is one of the most trusted brands for me with myself and the kiddos! Of course as it is a stick the kids thought it was deodorant and lifted their arms when I first went to apply it.  Once they got past that it was easier than I thought to apply but still a little tricky on the face.  I was lucky that they kids held really still as I was worried going around the eyes and lips.  Though it was easier to rub in than I anticipated so I probably didn’t have to be as […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese

PRODUCT REVIEW: Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese

Cheese, in all varieties and forms is a staple in my household.  We add it to virtually anything or just snack on it.  Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese was an excellent addition to our cheese habit.  Not that I advocate ‘snacking’ on grated cheese but that doesn’t mean I also don’t sneak a pinch here or there! At least a couple of times a month I make Alfredo from scratch.  The rest of the time I’m lazy, erm I mean pinched for time and use a package mix.  Either way the basic ingredient is Parmesan cheese.  I prefer to use shredded or shaved Parmesan when I’m making from scratch.  I always add more when I use a package mix.  The last few times we have had Alfredo I added in the Kraft Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese to experiment with the extra flavor.  Each time, scratch and mix, it was a […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash in White Strawberry and Mint

I have always been a fan of the Olay brand of products.  I’ve used them for decades (not that I want to date myself by any means!)  I like that they make my skin feel silky and moisturized.  I like that they have a pleasant scent as well.  I like that they are moderately priced making them an affordable option when selecting personal hygiene products.  I like a lot about Olay.The White Strawberry and Mint body was was no exception.  I left my skin feeling silky and moisturized, though still clean as well.  However, the strawberry scent was a little too sweet.  It reminded me a lot of the scent of a lip gloss I used as a kid.  The girls loved the body wash and always wants it with their bath.  Even the boy’s wanted to try it out!  Personally, for me, I’m not a fan of food scented […]
