For those who have tried it; how long did you wait before putting a shirt on after applying the Gold Bond? Thanks in advance

I know it's too soon to judge a product but in the day that I've used it, it's actually done a hell of a job. I have a crazy breakout on my neck right now (something like 10 cysts) and this dried them up right away. The bumps are still there, but it's going away really fast. My guess is that my neck will be completely healed by the weekend.

On my body, the results are less obvious but still clearly noticeable. Although I don't have a lot of active acne, the look of it suggests bad skin. I don't know how to explain it. This powder instantly soaks up any oil and shininess and overall, makes the skin looks a lot better.

Also, I've been having breakouts on my butt. Gross, I know but it's real and it hurts! It's dried them up a lot! Usually, they take two weeks to go away, but this has sped that up so much. I think this targets that problem better because it absorbs moisture and anything else that could contribute to acne. It also reduces chafing a lot.

Gold Bond has outdone all expectations I had for it. I had no idea this product could do so much. If I had found this out sooner, I would have suffered a lot less! But nevertheless, thanks to the original poster SO MUCH! No doubt you've just helped a lot of people who suffer with body acne. The product is really simple, and really cheap, so this is just great for me.

One downside though - it can get messy applying powder because of its form. You might be left with a lot of white powder over your sink and floor but I've gotten better at keeping it just to my skin. Another important note, this contains Zinc Oxide which might be toxic to inhale. Try to keep inhalation to a minimum. I get a little lightheaded after application due to all the zinc floating around.

Again, thanks! I will keep posting as I have more experience with it.

It's going good so far! No new pimples, and it seems to be healing the scars that take a few months to heal quite quickly! This shit rocks.

Been using it for a week and a bit now morning and night. Going good, no new pimples, but it seems to be harder to get rid of those scars, but they seem to be fading.

Alright, so I started using this on Saturday and it has now been 4 days. I had 3 cysts form on my chest last week which was quite unusual. I'll usually get one every 4-5 months. I knew these ones were going to scar if I let them get to a head. Every other one I've had on my chest has scarred (lucky me). I can honestly say now that after only 4 days this stuff is really doing the job. The 3 that I have have shrunken significantly. At this point they would be very large and swollen by now (if I just left them alone). I now have hope that these may not even leave a scar at all because they will not be coming to a head. Give it a shot if you're thinking about it and let us know in this thread. I'll leave an update in the next couple of days to give you guys my progress. Here's to hoping I've finally found something that works.

I am trying this!!! does it work on chest? i am getting such a bad breakout on my chest =[. it stinks because i like to wear v-necks and tank tops.

I used to have cysts on my back but it went away. i don't know if it was from drinking ACV or from head and shoulders.. but that doesn't matter now.

I am going to buy this tomorrow. my dad has bad bacne and ill suggest it to him if I see it working.

does it kind of sink in? like.. could I put it on before getting dressed, wait awhile and then not have white stuff all over my clothing?

I couldn't find the extra strength! but I will use the regular for awhile and see if I see an improvement. if I see a slight improvement I'll upgrade to the extra strength( if I can find it)

I bought the extra-strength triple action powder. I put it on after a shower, let it settle for 3-5 minutes, and put a shirt on (any old shirt since I'm staying in today). This is the first day and I am so impressed!! My red marks have faded, my back looks better, and my back isn't itchy/bothersome either! It cost me like $4-5 for this small teal bottle and after a week I wouldn't be surprised if my bacne significantly improved. Thank you!!

I just want to say to Britney Spears-thank you so, so much. I can't believe how well this works. I have had some very, very stubborn old bacne (and scabs/scars, thanks to my picking habit) :ninja: and I can honestly say that the Gold Bond has almost completely cleared my back in a week. I still have a few scars, but they are fading fast, and the active/infected bumps have cleared drastically.

Now I'm just going to throw this out there (not too sure how safe/effective this is), but I put a dab of the powder on my upperchin + neck and had AMAZING results. I think it's the zinc oxide that's doing the work. I didn't really want to put this powder on my entire face, so I just put a concentrated amount on my chin and it seems to be drying everything up. I'm also taking zinc 50mg tablets so I think Zinc is def. helping. And I can't wait to see my progress in a week because I just started this yesterday! :)

I think you're suppose to leave the powder on all day on dry skin so it can do its thing. I just know the bottle says to make sure your skin is dry.

Zinc tablets help control oily skin and helps acne overall. Which is what gold bond powder contains--a form of zinc. I take 50 mg and always eat it with food. You can find them at walgreens or walmart with all the other vitamin supplements.

Has anyone had success with this and used it for more than a month? If so, what was your regimen and how long did it take to show results?

You know what's great? Putting Gold Bond on the NADS. Seriously. I love it. Just don't try it with the Foot Powder... it's called foot powder for a reason.

I learned that the hard way.

I've been reading these posts and wanna give gold bond a try! My question is how easy it to apply to the back being that there are some hard to reach places? How are you guys applying it on your back? thanks

what i do, is after my shower i pat dry my back and then stand in the shower again and just powder it straight on my back and then pat with my hand all over my back to make sure its spread all over and then i step out and rinse off the shower again. and then i sit in my towel and do whatever for about 10 minutes and then i put on clothes. it seems to dissapear over the ours. when you put it on, it will be all white but at night i'll look and its not even there.
