Hello Gentlemen.

I read a lot about how good Gold Bond is, both on AoM and other websites. But after doing lots of search around, I couldn't find any place to buy it here, in Ireland. I know I could use Amazon to buy it, but I would prefer to first try it, and the postage to Ireland costs twice as much as the Gold Bond itself. So I was wondering, if there's any good alternative to it. Few would be preferred, as Ireland isn't a big country and some alternatives might not be available here as well.

Thank you for any replies,

Piotr B.

What are you wanting to use it for?

What do you think? Men use Gold Bond for one reason: sweaty nuts. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=375921

That is just one of the uses. I have also used it for athletes foot and I'm sure there are some other uses.

I don't uses it everyday. I make sure to use it if I will be hiking or some other long walking activity where I will be sure to get sweaty. I have use baby powder instead of Gold Bond in the past and it worked just fine. It does not have the menthol cooling feeling but it does the actual job of keeping swamp crotch away.

This Article mentions a talc powder made by Pinaud-Clubman that works like Gold Bond but with a more pleasant fragrance.  Gold Bond contains menthol, which is used to relieve itch, but it has too much of a medicinal smell for my liking.  Pinaud-Clubman talc smells similar to the aftershave, quite a manly fragrance in its own right.

"Medipure Medicated Body Powder"is a good option for UK based folks...it doesn't contain actual talc either, which I am lead to believe is bad for you (seems everything is bad for you these days).

 

Can easily be had on ebay...cheap as chips as well.

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
