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.
