Love, love, love this product! I bought this a few months back after reading the reviews on MUA. The reason for buying it was that my toddler son was constantly getting bruises on his shins from climbing eveything in site. This really helped clear the bruises faster. Up until this past week that was all I had used it for. Then we went to a park where my son ended up with a few fire ant bites on his legs. The pediatrician suggested benadryl and putting meat tenderizer on them. That did nothing. Hydrocortisone cream also did nothing. I figured I would try Res Q. It worked wonders! I put some on before bed and put his pj pants on and when he woke up in the morning they were at elast 75% better than the night before. I kept applying at diaper changes the next day and he had totally stopped itching! Then last night my hubby burned his hands while getting something out of the oven and I told him to put some on. About 10 min. later he was saying that he couldn't believe how it had taken the burning feeling almost totally away! I will always have this on me from now on! It will be in our first aid kit as well as diaper bag!
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

After reading the reviews for this product on MUA I went and bought it for my hubby. For the last few years he has been dealing w/ itchy, red and flaky scalp. He has tried a million shampoos for dandruff and even had prescription stuff with no results. The only thing that seemed to even make a mild improvement was putting hydrocortisone on his scalp daily and that didn't help w/ the flaking or redness. So, I told him to try this. He was skeptical. The first night he put quite a bit on and massaged it in for awhile. It is great because even though it is an oil it absorbs right in and doesn't feel greasy. Now for the past couple weeks he puts a few drops in the morning after his shower and his scalp is 100% better. He has no red patches, no flaking and he said it doesn't itch or burn anymore! His barber even commented on the change and he gets his hair cut every 2-3 weeks! He says that I cured him : ) So, just wanted to thank everyone who posted reviews which prompted me to purchase this product and hopefully if there is anyone w/ his symptoms maybe they will give this a shot. He has also been using this in conjuction w/ a shampoo that we got at the natural food store, which is by JASON and it is for dandruff and mild psoriasis.
I bought this blush to use on my cheeks with a bronzer all over my face. I have olive skin and dark brown eyes and hair. I love it! It really gives me sun kissed look and a little more definition on my cheek bones. I thought that the price was a bit much, but you do get a good sized container for the money. What I do not like about the packaging is that the top of the tin that it comes in doesn't stay on so well if you were going to put it in a bag for travel. I was having a hard time finding something that gave the look of a day in the sun w/ a little pink of my cheeks that would actually show up. Finally I found it! I saw that the other review mentioned that the staying power is not good. I have to disagree wholeheartedly. I applied my moisturizer this morning and then my all over face powder bronzer and then the blush and it is now 4pm and I have worked all day and it looks just as fresh. I also forgot to mention that I live in Florida and it is July! Hope this review helps out!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Kiyoseki Pro Flat Iron

So here I am watching yet another infomercial when the Kiyoseki catches my eye. It looks too good to be true, but with a 60 day money back guarantee how can you go wrong? Well, I got it in the mail and watched the instructional dvd and had to try it immediately. I have shoulder length thick, coarse curly/frizzy hair. I have never, ever been able to flat iron my hair without first blow drying straight and getting it fairly smooth that way. I had previously had the FHI iron and that pretty much just took out some of the poof, but often left my hair sort of dry looking. So I washed my hair and just let it air dry. Once it was dry I used the comb that it came w/ and combed through careful to get out any tangles. Then I sectioned my hair as it instructed on the dvd and started straightening. First of all this iron heats up in under one min! It was really easy to handly and I could not believe how shiny my hair was and how smooth and healthy looking, even the very ends which always look a little worse for wear. I was amazed. It took me about 20 min. to do my whole head, which was about what it took w/ my other iron, but keep in mind that was after I spent about 40 blowing dry. I even had to dry it straight first when I had the chinese straightening done, but now with the Kiyoseki that whole step is a thing of the past! My hair has totally grown out from the chinese straightener and I realize I could have saved myself hundreds of dollars if I had just had this iron. I am actually happier w/ these results. Also keep in mind that I live in hot humid Florida and it is July! My hair didn't frizz one bit and everyone at work thought that I had gone to the salon. I love this iron! I know that I have only used it once, but I love how healthy and shiny my hair looks and I can't stop touching it! I have emailed my rave reviews to all my curly haired friends who fight the same battle for straight smooth hair. So, in conclusion, I would not hesitate to give the Kiyoseki a try! What do you have to lose except tired arms from blow drying your hair straight : ) UPDATE***************************** I have had the kiyoseki now for a month and went to use it tonight and it turned off and won't turn back on. I am sending it back. They said that when they receive it that it should only take about three days to refund my money. We will see. I will def. be using DC and keeping in contact until I see that the money has been refunded on my card. WARNING!!! I returned my iron using DC and insured it. I called the company to see if the refund had been issued and they said that they had not received the item. I informed them that I had a DC which said that it had been received a few days ago. Once I said that they said oh, well hold on and I'll check. They had received it and it would take 3-5 days for money back. So glad that I did the DC.
I have tried many products to give that "dewy" appearance and until now have not found anything that didn't make me look glittery or oily. This product is great. A little does go a long way, but it makes my skin look smooth and refreshed. I used it after applying the mineral veil and it really brightened my face and gave me a rested youthful glow, which considering I have a small child and am not getting alot of rest is wonderful!
