a couple of weeks ago, a rep from George's Cream contacted me about doing a product review for their skin cream. i'd heard of George's Cream from a fellow blogger who mentioned that it was a solid product for dry skin and i checked around my local drug stores with no avail. gah! winter skin, you make my wallet cry!!
i love the fact that this is a canadian owned and operated company. George's Cream was created by pharmacist, George Doherty, to help alleviate dry skin that is often the result from our brutal Canadian winters. all of George's skin creams are manufactured in canada and are free of lanolin, urea and fragrances.
i'm very judgemental when it comes to creams because i have super dry, sensitive skin and i need something that absorbs fast and does the job. i received two products to review: one 30ml tube of the special dry skin cream and a 360ml of the light special moisturizing lotion.
the texture of the special dry skin cream is thick and very creamy. you only need a little to get full coverage, it takes a bit of work to fully massage into your skin but it has no scent (most fragrance-free creams smell like plastic to me) and i was surprised at how fast it absorbed considering how heavy it was. it didn't leave a greasy feeling behind and my hands were soft and smooth.
i brought the light special moisturizing lotion to work and i used it with the same results as the special dry skin cream. it's a lighter version of the special dry skin cream; i actually like this better because it's a little bit easier to work into your skin and leaves your skin just as smooth and soft. with both products, my skin didn't react and their motto is right: it works!
both products receive a 9/10!
now, it's your turn!!
