Gold Bond Ultimate Neck & Chest Firming Cream Review

Okay, I’m the first to admit that when I think of Gold Bond products, I think of  body powder for sweaty dudes. As usual I had a $1.50 coupon for this product, so I thought what the heck. Gold Bond Neck & Chest Cream at Walmart for $9.97 USD.  You get 2 ounces of product and I’ve been using it once a day for over three months.  You are suppose to use it twice a day, but there isn’t an SPF, so I’m just using it at night.

Here’s the description of the product:

Gold Bond Ultimate Neck & Chest Firming Cream. There are 7 intensive moisturizes. It is body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. The product is clinically tested, proven effective, fragrance free and dermatologist tested. Advanced hydration blend draws in moisture to improve texture.

  • Neck & Chest Cream, Firming
  • New. 7 intensive moisturizers. Body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Fragrance free. Dermatologist tested. Physically different than other skin on your body, the delicate neck and chest area is one of the first to show signs of aging. As one of the most exposed areas of the body, the neck and chest are highly susceptible to damage caused by the environment and UV rays, making it age faster. Also, over time our skin naturally loses its youthful firmness and texture as lipids, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, a natural hydration component within skin, start to decline-aging its appearance. Firming Neck & Chest Cream is uniquely formulated with a blend of key ingredients to deliver intense, long-lasting hydration and improve the appearance of skin’s firmness, texture, and elasticity for more supple, youthful-looking skin. Get Visible Results: Immediately: 82% saw softer smoother skin; Day 1: 85% saw improvement in skin texture; 2 Weeks: 97% had visibly firmer, more taut skin; 6 Weeks: 88% had improvement in skin elasticity. Ultimate lotion. Ultimate skin. High-performance firming complex. Advance Hydration Blend: draws in moisture to improve texture. Salicylic Acid (BHA): exfoliates to help reveal a younger-looking complexion. Stress Response Proteins: boost skin’s moisture retention to improve smoothness. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Increases elasticity. Improves texture. Visibly firms. Boosts hydration. Exclusive formula. The makers of Gold Bond do not manufacture private label brands.

Since it’s winter here in Southeast Wisconsin, I’m covered up most of the time. I happened to notice when I wore a scoop neck top recently that my neck and upper chest looked pretty darn good. The reason I noticed was because I could tell where I stopped putting the cream on my chest. OMG!  What a difference! The chest area I missed doesn’t look so hot and the rest, wow! This stuff is amazing! My neck is less crepey as well.

I’ve tried so many neck creams over the years, and spent a ton of money in the process. This cream is $5 an ounce.  I hope like heck Gold Bond never stops making this great product.

Given I’m almost 60, I would say this makes quite a difference. My skin is much smoother and spot free.

Men’s Underwear on Ebay-WTF?!?

So me and the hubby are shooting the breeze and he tells me he heard his co-worker sells men’s underwear on Ebay. What?!?!?  I guess he is trying to supplement his income. I did a quick search on Ebay, and the prices for men’s boxers were not that great. We’re talking like Hanes or Fruit of the Loom. Apparently this guy buys the skivvies directly from the manufacturer and then resells them.

I suppose if you have a crap load of kids you might need to save a few bucks on underwear, but then how could you see the people of Wal-mart if you are not there buying cheap underwear??

Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse-Review

This a great mousse if you have fine, curly hair.  I’ve been using it for several months and have seen a big difference in how full my hair looks.  I can wear my hair naturally curly, and it’s not frizzy at all.  Best part it’s only $2.88 at Wal-Mart.  I’ve tried so many mousses over the years, and this is by far the best.

A retouched photo, only because the original was too dark. And I seemed to have lost an eyebrow in the process.


Tips for Buying Beauty Products on EBay

I love to shop for beauty products.  I like trying new stuff.   I usually get most of my skin care products at Ulta.  I’m a rewards member and often have coupons.  I really like Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer with sunscreen. It has a broad spectrum SPF of 30, which is crucial.  I’ve been using it for about 6 months now.   The bottle is 1 ounce and lasts me about a month, using it every day.  I have seen a marked improvement in the tone of my skin.  I had a few sun spots that have virtually faded to nothing. It has also softened some of my wrinkles.

I’ve been spending around $20 a month for one bottle.   I try to get it on sale when I can.  After doing some research, I’ve discovered that EBay has the best price.  I recently paid $10.50 for my last bottle of my new favorite day cream.

Today I checked the price on several websites, they are as follows:

Walmart.com-$17.97, Ulta.com-$21.99, Walgreens.com-$23.49 and Ebay.com $12.50 with free shipping.  I recommend buying products you use all the time on EBay.  I did buy a ROC moisturizer a month ago on EBay for half of what it normally costs. I read positive reviews; however it ended up irritating my skin, so I stopped using it. Had I bought the ROC at Ulta, I could have returned it.

Make sure to check for an expiration date when shopping on EBay.  Sunscreen will break down after one year, and not be as effective.

EBay is a great place to buy perfume too.  I have purchased perfume that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else for a reasonable price.  I can’t remember the last time I bought fragrance at a department store.  The best value on fragrance seems to be when you buy a gift set. One thing I have noticed on fragrance lotion is, once it’s opened the scent doesn’t last for very long.  If you aren’t going to be using it the all the time, I would skip it.

I love when I can shop from my couch and get great deals. Plus no coupons to clip!
