George’s Special Dry Skin Cream Review

Brandy

This little lifesaver package arrived at our house just in the nick of time!

Where we live we experience extremely harsh winter temperatures. We can see windchills up to -40 degrees Celsius if not worse.

George’s Cream is the perfect solution for the dry and itchy skin problems that ensue.

Pharmacist George Doherty created George’s Cream by using his wife’s cake mixer in their very own kitchen over 15 years ago. He didn’t want to create a top-selling product, he just wanted to create a product that helped combat skin irritations caused by Canada’s harsh winter climate.

We all suffer from dry skin in our house. Especially my husband. His hands get so raw that I am sometimes afraid to look at his hands. It looks too painful. Our kids seem to have inherited this condition from the both of us. To relive the itchiness, we try to make sure we apply lotion to ourselves as often as we can.

George’s Cream comes in two varieties. First there is George’s Special Dry Skin Cream. It was formulated for lasting dry skin relief. It has been proven to help with eczema, psoriasis, sun burn, wind burn, cradle cap, winter itch, tough elbow skin, flaky skin, etc. It has been recommended for use by many dermatologists, pharmacists and physicians.

Georges Cream

George’s Light Special Moisturizing Lotion was created because many women had asked for a lighter version of George’s Special Dry Skin Cream. They wanted something that could be used daily. After spending 18 months in the lab, the special moisturizing lotion came to be. It still maintains the integrity of the original cream and does not contain any additives.

Georges Light Lotion

What is great about George’s Cream is that it can be used by people of all ages. It is even safe to use on babies as it is hypoallergenic and fragrance free! George’s Cream does not contain Urea, Lanolin or Parabens either. Irritants, fragrance and colouring were excluded from the cream’s formulas so as to not further irritate the already damaged skin. I love the fact that I can use these products on my children without having to worry about what is being absorbed into their bodies.

George’s Light Special Moisturizing Lotion retails for $10.99 for a 360ml bottle and a 450g jar of George’s Special Dry Skin Cream will cost $14.99. (Other sizes are available.) You can find these non-prescription items at your local grocery and drug stores including Shopper’s Drug Mart and Loblaws.

    I just try to remember to put on lotion as often as possible, especially after having my hands in water. If they get really dry and start to crack and hurt I rub lots of oil all over them and wear gloves to bed for a night. briannehager@gmail.com

    I try to drink a lot of water, make sure that I am properly clothed whether its winter or summer (I wear a long sleeve shirt when we go fishing and even when I swim as I burn too easily) …I have a tendency to have hot baths in the winter which I know is bad, so I do try to limit those) I have very itchy skin, as well as sensitive and generally most creams turn my skin red and burn immediately

    We primarily use Aveeno in our house (my little one has mild eczema) but I have seen George's on the shelves but didn't really know anything about it. I am all about fragrance free so this could definitely be an option for our household.

    Dry skin is a given in our home. I use other products as I am super picky and informed on ingredients so I use a lot of natural based products.
    I'll have to check out their ingredients….a lot of toxic stuff is found in most drugstore brands.
    Great review!

    This sounds like a great product! When we lived in Alberta, my hands used to be so dry during the winter – I'd have to apply lotion daily (or more often). Now that we're in BC, it's my face that is dry, which is really annoying! I don't like putting most products on my face, but this sounds like it would be gentle and light enough to use on my face too. And since my daughters

    I have eczema and Georges Products seem like they would be perfect for my skin. I have a real problem with my hands because I have to wear gloves at work and the gloves really irritate them. The things that I find bother my hands are peeling oranges and potatoes or any other type of citrusy fruit such as lemons. I tend to not peel them or get my husband to peel them for me. I also stay away from

    I am a constant lotion user, always trying to keep my skin feeling smooth and looking healthy. I get a lot of dryness, especially in the winter. I found the Made from Earth Aloe & jojoba Therapy body lotion to be the best for my dry skin – it absorbs well, and doesn’t smell to strong. And its super gentle yet moisturizing.

    Im natural and healthy, so I like that the brand doesn’t put any chemicals in their products and they do not test on animals.
