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! smile.gif

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.

I believe you are supposed to leave it on your back and not rinse it off.

Day 3 of the regimen on my back and all i have to say is...

WOW.

So far most of the red spots under the skin from previous acne are going away so fast and I only have a FEW zits on whole back. By a few I mean like 3 or 4..yea going from pizza to almost clear in a few days is incredible.

My shoulders are usually the worst part and they feel as smooth as butter : D

So I'd say a few more days of this and all acne will be subsiding and red marks will be faded. Keep up with this and use it 3-4 times per day. It's never hurts with this stuff to apply too much. It's good for the acne.

I must say I'm very pleased. Not only that, the BP/AHA regimen is keeping my face looking really good now. Just waiting for some marks to fade and a pimple here and there every once in awhile.


I'll post again one week from today and post some previous and after pics. You'll be amazed

so this is my first post on this site. i have been checking it out for awhile to try and solve this bacne that has been haunting me since last december. my back used to be perfect i dont know what happened.. but ANYWAYS. i tried this gold bond stuff last nigth and the night before that. it seems to be drying out the zits really well. BUT i was really dissapointed to wake up this morning with a new one on my shoulder, considering everyone on here is saying it stopped them from getting zits completely. but i will continue to use and hope for the best, thank god this summer is already shit makes not being able to wear my numerous adorable tanks and strapless shirts much easier.

I understand how you feel. The powder can't really prevent new acne, but helps dry everything out. How I see it (and I can be completely wrong) is that if you leave that powder on all day (with a few touch ups here & there), oil can't be on the surface as much thus lessening your chance of clogging pores. Also, it helps reduce redness so if anything your acne can look better, won't hurt as much, etc.

you can buy the zinc tablets/pills anywhere like at Wal-Mart, CVS, or Wal-Green. just go to the supplement/nutrient isle look for zinc supplement. they're pretty cheap like 5 bucks for 100 caplets. i guess when u apply the gold bond powder, people say to stand in the shower stall or tub only for the reason not to make a big mess on your bathroom floor. its much easier to apply in the tub and have all the excess powder fall to the bottom of the tub than oppose to your actually bathroom floor. and NO do not rinse it off, it suppose to be on your back all day.
Acne is the never ending war. Countless battles fought everyday against it. All the arsenal unleash to overcome it. FU8k, WHEN WILL I FINALLY WIN?

I FINALLY WON!!! Well on my face that is. 2 months and going all clear. YAY!!!!!!

Yes, you want the one in the green bottle (Triple Action) because it's stronger.

I couldn't find the extra strength. the regular is called triple action too by the way. where did you guys find the extra strength?
I have been using this for a week and I see an improvement in my chest but I am only using the regular. I'll just use this for a while because it seems to make everything better.
I am interested in taking zinc pills, but i'll look that up in the hollistic section.

It's been about a week for me, and has worked great! My back is clearing up extremely fast and well.
