Combat Dry Skin with George's Cream (Giveaway)

Fall is here, and unfortunately that means winter will soon be upon us.

Other than snowboarding, Christmas and Hannah's birthday, winter and I are not friends. His cold temperature wreaks havoc on my skin. His lack of sunlight makes me depressed. And forcing me to dress Hannah in multiple layers - including a snowsuit - is not fun.

Thankfully, George's Cream can come to my rescue, at least to solve my dry skin problem.

Pharmacist George Doherty created George’s Special Dry Skin Cream in his kitchen using his wife’s cake mixer over 15 years ago looking to create a cream for local Albertans to help combat their severe dry skin from the harsh winters. He didn't intend to invent one of the top selling therapeutic skin moisturizers in Canada, but that's exactly what he did.

George’s Cream is appealing to so many Canadians because it is a non-prescription therapeutic skin moisturizer that has no additives and is fragrance free. Many users suffering from eczema and psoriasis are amazed by the immense relief they feel almost from the first application and now use it as their daily moisturizer or night cream.

George's Cream also offers therapeutic benefits that will provide significant relief to those suffering from cradle cap, sunburn, flaky skin, wind burn or swimmer’s itch.

George’s Cream does not contain urea, lanolin or parabens and has been specifically made to be hypoallergenic and fragrance free. It contains no additives, irritants, fragrance or colouring which could irritate damaged skin. And it's not tested on animals.

George's Cream goes on smoothly and is not greasy at all. Chris even commented on how soft our skin was after use. Our building turned on the heat earlier this week, and with George's Cream my skin looks and feels as good as it did in the summer.

George's Cream is available at grocery, mass merchandise and drug stores nationwide including Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws. It retails from $2.99 to $14.99.

Would you like George's Cream to come to your dry skin rescue this winter too? Enter to win a George's Cream prize package that includes full-size and travel size products of George's skincare products by using the Rafflecopter below.

Open to Canadian Residents only. Valid entries only. Contest ends Sunday, October 14, 2012.
