Brand Overview

Get ready for maximum irritation from this menthol laced specialty product. The menthol is a problem for all skin types and makes this anti-itch lotion not worth considering, save for perhaps very brief usage when nothing else has worked to stop the itch. Products like this are not recommended for use on sunburned skin. A fragrance-free cream or gel with 1% hydrocortisone would be a much better all-around option for anyone’s first-aid kit.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

An essential in every first aid kit. Delivering the maximum pain and itch relief you can get without a prescription its great for everything from insect bites to poison ivy.

Gold Bond At-A-Glance

Gold Bond is a staple at drugstores due to their small selection of body lotions, anti-itch products, and various foot-care products. Though there are a number of Gold Bond products containing the potent irritant menthol (particularly its foot care and "medicated" products), in recent years Gold Bond has taken great strides and now offers some impressive moisturizers that are fairly priced, too.
