Beauty Banter

Do you want SOFT SKIN all over?

I can't believe what this body lotion has done to my skin. I have only been using for 2 weeks. It has completely healed dry skin on my elbows and just above the elbow. So not only do you smell good but you are soft all over. It's Gud body lotion sold at Target or Walgreens. Quite a few organic ingredients. I purchased the Vanilla Flame with Vanilla and Rice Milk. It's a very clean scent with a touch of vanilla. I have to try the body butter to compare the two. However, this lotion is awesome.

Thanks for the recommendation, KatCat1. Will give it a try.

KatCat1, if you have the time, can you list the first five ingredients on your bottle? I am curious about what works so well!

It's easier if you go to gudhappens.com as they list all of the ingredients for all their products. It does have shea butter in it.

Oh man, I guess I will not purchase. How do you find out something like that?

Is this the Burt's Bees line?

I have been using CeraVe lotion for about a month, and it has made a significant difference with my alligator arms. Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing is good, but nothing like the CeraVe's lotion.

Alcohol Denat and Fragrance are Organic? I don't think so!

They do not test on animals so that information you received is incorrect. Burt's Bees owns them and it's printed right on the tube that they do not test on animals.

I tried a sample of one of the gud lotions and really liked it.

guatmum1355587716.832707 PostsRegistered 10/24/2008

For those who liked the Gud, has anyone tried the blood orange flower (I think that's the name) scent? That seems to be the only one I can find. My skin is literally flaking off on my hands and elbows and I'm willing to try anything, especially when it's affordable like this is.

I read the OP's post about the lotion and though I'd take a look when I went to Target today...sounded interesting, I hadn't seen this brand before, and I love vanilla scent. Worth Looking at it and reading the label.

Then I read the rest of the posts. Does everything have to be contentious with some people? Don't like the lotion? Don't buy it. Don't think a poster has the best of information? Post your own but leave off the personal attacks on their knowledge base.

Seriously, how can an innnocent recommendation on a lotion turn grown women into such children? This is the time of year when we should be doing our best to be kind to each other. After the tragic events of yesterday, I'd think people would be extra kind.

So to the OP...thanks for the recommendation! I'll be at Target today and will take a look at it. Nice of you to think others might be interested in this lotion! To those who simply took this recommendation in the spirit with which it was offered...thank you too!

AMEN.... well spoken. Just SMH.

Kat, I've seen the Gud products in the drugstore, but I've never tried them.

I appreciate your review. I'm always looking for new products that don't cost a fortune, and it really helps to have reviews from peeps who have actually used them. I'm anxious to try the lotion/body butter.

Thanks again!

Yes, thanks, Katcat. I've looked directly at the Gud products and never picked one up. I always grab the Nature's Gate near it 'cause I love the papaya they have in both lotion and body wash. I'm almost out of the lotion and body wash so next time I'll reach for the Gud. I enjoy your reviews so please keep them coming.

I once bought a body lotion with vanilla in it and by the end of the first day I used it I had a zillion mosquito bites every where I had put the lotion. hands - legs arms etc. I threw it right into the trash. Maybe up north in the winter it will be ok but I would not advise using in the summer.

Thank you!

And no kidding, sometimes I feel like its high school with all the catty, catty girls. And actually I went to a high school that was predominately male so there were 182 girls and 1800 guys and even fewer 'girly girls.' But boy, everyone knew who the catty catty ones were!

I haven't "tried" the Gud lotions yet but if you're asking about scent, there's 4 in this line. I smelled them all when I was in Target and they all smell really good!

I, for one, am duly reprimanded. When I see misinformation, I will keep my comments to myself from now on.

But I'm still wondering if anyone has tried the blood orange flower scent in the Gud. It's the only one at the store near me and I'm not one to open something to smell it unless it says "Tester." Thanks for anyone who can give me any info on it.

Oops! Lobstergal, I was posting at the same time you were so I didn't see your post. Thanks! I may go ahead and try it then. It really is affordable!

I agree. I'm still trying to figure out how you "went out of your way to correct" her.{#emotions_dlg.blink}

I would never test a product unless it was an actual tester, but I did flip the top open to smell them. {#emotions_dlg.blushing}

And guatmum, please don't let one nasty person get to you like that and keep you from commenting.....I agree, you didn't do anything wrong!

Happy Holidays!
