Final Comments:
I was quite intrigued when I first picked up George’s Special Dry Skin Cream. The plain white packaging is quite different from other products on the market. When I found out George’s was a Canadian company from Alberta I was super excited. It’s great to try home grown products and who would understand dry Canadian skin better than Canadians?

When I first squeezed some of this product out my first impression was how thick it felt, but was pleasantly surprised when I started applying it to my dry hands. Although it is a bit thick and greasy it doesn’t feel super heavy and is easy to rub into the skin. It absorbed quickly into my skin. It has a very faint plastic smell, but it's super faint and I barely even notice it.

After using this cream for a while I am definitely loving this product. Not only is it almost completely scentless, but it leaves my skin feeling super soft and moisturized. I used it mainly on my body as it is still a bit too heavy and greasy for my face. The only con I found was that I have to re-apply moisturized a few times a day as it doesn’t keep my skin moisturized for the whole day.

Lastly, I love that this product comes in 3 different sized packages. The 30g tube is perfect for travelling and taking with you in your bag/purse.
