George’s Cream: Helping Canadians Combat Their Dry Skin!

It’s as Canadian as backbacon, tuques, the Leafs losing the Stanley Cup and ‘eh’. Dry skin in the winter.

We Canadians suffer the winter skin blahs with symptoms such as dry, flaky and chapped skin caused by dry air and wind. Dry conditions are also caused by indoor heating, which, when combined with the cold air outside, leaves skin’s moisture barrier compromised. My husband’s hands, the kids arms and legs, my… everywhere! are red and dry.

Enter George’s Cream.  My mother in law was talking about a new cream on the market that was supposed to be fantastic -George’s Cream.  She had just bought some to try.  After she told me about it, I kept seeing it everywhere.  No word of a lie, the next day, I was contacted to try the cream.  Um, Yes Please!

Using his wife’s cake mixer and working on formula after formula in his kitchen – the ultimate result was a cult success for George’s Special Dry Skin Cream.  The growth, loyalty and demand for the brand has been unbelievable – so much so that Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws now carry this brand across Canada. George’s Special Dry Skin Cream was created for lasting dry skin relief, it provides relief from several different types of skin conditions and… it works!  That is why it is recommended by dermatologists, pharmacists and physicians.

So all 5 of us now use George’s Cream.  The Girl’s eczema has almost disappeared, the rough dry patches on The Boy’s arms are gone, The Baby has soft skin again and my skin has never been better.  The only reason my husband’s hands are still cracked and red and bleeding is because he doesn’t use it regularly… or at all.

There is also a Light version. George’s Light 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. The integrity of the cream is maintained with a minimum of ingredients and has no additives that could cause allergies. In my house, that is a necessity!

George is very generously giving away a prize pack of his very special creams. How to enter? Easy!
