I love store brands [most of the time]

I thought I loved Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion until I tried Wal-mart's version.

equate Ultra Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion is amazing and HALF the price, at my Wal-mart anyway. store brand prices vary by store.

Anyway, I love this lotion. We put it on the kids every night because of their especially dry winter skin (and Son's constant drooling) I use it on my elbows, hands and this little dry patch of skin I always seen to have under my chin. [what is up with that?]

It's great. It's got a nice clean smell ... no fruits or flowers. It absorbs great and it not greasy.

So unless there's a buy-one-get-one-free deal out there for the Gold Bond or you just like to spend more, save some money and get a product that's just as good (or better in my opinion)

I love Gold Bond and was ecstatic when Walmart starting carrying the "store brand" version. I keep a bottle at my desk at work, at my desk at home, and by the bed. Love that stuff! :)

Incidentally, Gold Bond's foot cream is awesome and it would be great if Walmart starting carrying a generic version of that as well! :D

good to know, Christy. We like the gold bond as well and have bought it before with a coupon, but are running low! I will get the store brand next time!
