Product Review: Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion

7:00 AM

As anyone that has followed my blog or my Make-Up Alley postings will know, my holy grail hand moisturizer is Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Lotion.  After my recent blog review on this product, I decided to send Chattem, the parent company of Gold Bond Ultimate, an invitation to see my blog post. Never did I expect anything in return more than a thanks and maybe a coupon. However, imagine my surprise when not only did I receive an email thanking me for my post but also 2 full sized samples of their newest products.

  • Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion, and
  • Gold Bond Ultimate Smoothing Shea Butter Body Wash
I really wasn’t expecting that but I was appreciative and will gladly review the products.  So with this posting, I am providing my review of the first product, Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion. 

At first glance, the container looks like a hair mousse applicator.  Just based on the container, I was thinking that although the product is called “Sheer Ribbons”, I was expecting the product to be the consistency of hair mousse.  However, the name is very descriptive of the consistency-sheer ribbons. The product comes out in fine ribbons.  It reminds me of the old fashion folded Christmas candies. 

Anyway, I digress. I have been using the Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion for about two weeks now and I feel that is sufficient time to provide a fair and accurate review.  I have very simple but definite requirements of a body lotion.  Yes, they must work to moisturize my skin, but they cannot leave my skin feeling greasy, slick, or slippery.  They cannot be overly fragranced.  Also, I do not like a watery body lotion; my preference is a lotion that is more of a cream. 
So how did Gold Bond Ultimate Sheer Ribbons Body Lotion fair against my list of requirements? Not surprisingly, Gold Bond Ultimate remained true to its reputation.  For my nail bloggers, you know how you constantly look at the manicure that you just love. I had a similar experience with this body lotion.  It left my skin feeling like velvet; but not greasy or sticky.  Throughout the day, I couldn’t help but notice that my arms continued to feel soft and moisturized.  At night, my legs and feet, were like velvet.  The scent is soft and not overpowering.  Once I got passed the different delivery method, and used the product, yes it is one I would buy for myself.  I have yet to see this product in my local stores but I will be on the lookout.

For Me,It Works... Rating:
4.5 out of 5 - Very Good. Not a 5 star because I have not found this product in the stores yet.

Note: One added benefit for the delivery method, it’s good for travel. You don’t have to worry about lotion pumping out during travel. Just replace the cap and go…
