Pros: Rich formula that works wonders on dry and cracked skin!
Cons: The pump bottle doesn't dispense the thick lotion very well.
With cold weather approaching soon, if you are like me that means dry and cracked skin. I noticed Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion on the shelf while recently shopping and decided to give it a try. At $8.99 a bottle and from a trusted brand, I expected this product to work wonders on my dry skin. Was I disappointed? Read on to find out!
Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion
I purchased the 14 oz. bottle with pump. The bottle is white with gold and black lettering and detailing. Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion claims to "Heal Extremely Dry, Cracked & Irritated Skin with 7 Intensive Moisturizers." It has a fresh scent, penetrates quickly, non-greasy, and contains Vitamins A, C, & E. It is designed to be used all over the body and is even gentle enough to use on your face!
Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion contains 7 intense moisturizers to provide 24 hour moisturization. It is dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic.
How Did Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion Work For Me?
I loved the way this product performed. My skin was left smooth and soft and feeling moisturized. However, the palms of my hands always felt dry, even just after using this product. Gold Bond recommends repeated applications for rough spots so I applied more to the palms of my hands. This seemed to solve the problem. I suppose the palms of my hands were super dry.
Repeated use of Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion has really helped my skin to retain moisture and give my skin a healthier appearance.
My disappointment with this lotion is the pump style action bottle. This lotion is thick, so thick it should be called a cream. You cannot get all of the lotion out of the pump style bottle and it dispenses very slowly. My other disappointment is the scent. It is not offensive but not one that I loved either. It is a mixture of sweet and perfume and did not appeal to me.

Final Thoughts And Recommendation
I recommend Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion to anyone with extremely dry and/or cracked skin. It contains moisturizing agents to keep your skin moisturized for up to 24 hours and vitamins for healthy looking skin. I give Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion 4 Stars (deduction for packaging this super thick formula in a pump bottle).
