As much as I love Winter, the one thing that I completely dread (aside from slippery road conditions and shoveling) is the damage the cold air can do to your skin.
My husband and little girl are especially vulnerable to dry skin and windburn during this time of year and it’s been very tough finding a perfect product to use on their skin, especially the knuckles on my husband’s hands to combat the dryness and burn. It’s painful to look at it! I can only imagine how my husband feels!
Another issue I’ve encountered recently that has been intensified during this colder season is my 2 month old son’s cradle cap and dry skin on his face.
Being the very resourceful and probing mother that I am, I of course scoured the internet reading up on the different experiences from other moms and those that have suffered similar issues before wasting money on products that will not work. I know this because I’ve already fell victim to many different products that I spent ridiculous amount of money on for nothing but a brand name — did nothing for my family members.
I heard and read a lot about George’s Cream
but never thought of it because it wasn’t a familiar name. I saw it sitting on the skincare shelf during a typical stop-off at my local drug mart next to all the other more accustomed products but never thought of it.
As the name “George’s Cream” began repeating itself from the mouths of other mothers and dry skin sufferers, I jumped at the opportunity to review 2 of their popular products: George’s Special Dry Skin Cream and George’s Light Special Moisturizing Lotion.
What I love about George’s Skin Care products is that they do not contain Urea, Lanolin or Parabens and have been specifically made to be hypoallergenic and fragrance free. NO additives, irritants, fragrance or colouring which could irritate damaged skin. This means this is even great for kids and babies!
George’s Special Moisturizing Lotion is a lighter version of George’s Special Dry Skin Cream, and has been carefully researched and formulated to soothe and protect problem skin. It is gentle enough for use every day and can be used by those with sensitive skin.
Maintains the integrity of the cream with a minimum of ingredients and has no additives that could cause allergies. Great for daily use to moisturize, soothe and protect dry skin.
This is a great lotion to use all year-round for those with sensitive skin and prefer un-scented products that do the job!
George’s Light Special Moisturizing Lotion is available in a 30ml tube and 360ml bottle and has a suggested retail price of $2.99 and $10.99
George’s Special Dry Skin Cream was created for lasting dry skin relief.
Provides relief from different types of skin symptoms and conditions.
This product I found truly did work for very dry skin! It’s no wonder it is recommended by dermatologists, pharmacists and physicians.
Provides immense relief for those suffering from any of the following conditions: Eczema, Psoriasis, Sunburn, Windburn, Cradle cap, Winter itch, Flaky skin, Tough elbow skin, Radiation therapy, Sport chafing (runners, cyclists), Swimmer’s itch, Dry hands and cracked cuticles, Foot problems including those associated with diabetes.
I used this product on my son’s face for his dry skin and he didn’t get red and break out afterwards like he did with other products and the great thing is that it actually reduced the dryness. I now use it on the driest areas of his face after his bath. It’s working!
My husband now keeps it with him at his office for his day-to-day as he found that it is helping with his winter-dry and painful knuckles.

George’s Special Dry Skin Cream is available in a 450g jar, 30ml & 90ml tube and has a suggested retail price of $14.99, $2.99 and $6.49.
Another awesome thing about George’s Cream that I love — they’re Canadian! So they fully understand our harsh winters!
George’s Skincare Products are available at grocery, mass merchandise and drug stores nationwide including Shoppers Drug Mart & Loblaws.
George’s Cream would make a great stocking stuffer for those you know that need to find some dry skin relief this Winter and what makes it a great gift is that you don’t have to worry if the product will irritate their skin — works for everyone!
