Talk about strange internet searches. Earlier today I found myself on Amazon looking for Udder cream.
Well a long time ago my mom brought home this cream that she’d purchased while she and my dad were vacationing in Texas. My mom used to always get dry cracked skin on her heals and in the winter the skin on her hands, especially her fingers, would get so dry that sometimes it would crack and bleed.
So she found this cream that was originally made for putting on cow udders or teats to keep them from cracking.
Now this was back in the 80’s or maybe early 90’s … before it became quite common for people to use products made for cows.
Anyway .. back to my search for udder cream. I kept getting results that brought up face cream but of course that wasn’t what I wanted at all. I eventually found the exact product that my mom used 20 or so years ago and it’s Bag Balm. Hey … I was close … udder, bag … LOL
I was looking on Amazon, because, even though I could remember the exact name of the product I knew I could find it if I saw it in a department store or drug stores beauty aisle, but I haven’t seen it. Unfortunately for me, Amazon.com doesn’t ship this product to Canada. Hmmm.. I forgot to check on Amazon.ca but then they don’t have half the stuff that the US site does so they probably won’t have it. Now at least I know the name of the product and I can ask around.
I hope I find some soon … my heels are awful! No matter what I do I always get hard skin on the edges of my heels and the sides of my feet … I think that if I can get my hands on some Bag Balm or a similar product it might help.
Anyone know where I can get some Bag Balm in Canada? Toronto to be exact?
