5.0 out of 5 stars definitely going to continue getting this product, June 26 2015
I have occasional flare-ups of eczema and had a flare up just before receiving this serum, so I was using the traditional cortisone twice when the itching and raised skin became unbearable and the natural remedies I’ve learned of to use at home including avoiding putting my hands in water and reducing exposure to heat. Long ago in my youth, I learned the benefits of using all natural products for sensitive skin types and have never used anything else since. That said, when I received this serum I was able to try it on the flare up right away and came to the conclusion that this is great for people with eczema. It instantly soothed the area and healing began. Even with subsequent flare-ups in that same area (eczema takes a while to go away completely) the daily application has helped better than anything I’ve tried. The cream also moistens the skin so as the eczema heals there is no longer dry crusty skin to continually irritate the area. I applied 2 doses per day during the flare up, and have since reduced that to once per day – as recommended – now that the eczema is healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite, June 18 2015
Having experienced eczema, allergies, joint issues and anxiety I have learned the importance of taking supplements for omega 3, 6 and 9 (all types of fatty acids)… I have tried flax and hemp and various fish oils, but I have to say that so far (over the last 18 years of taking these supplements) this brand is now my favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars it absorbs everything it comes in contact with and as such natural products like Maxasorb D3 Cream are looked at as a supplement, June 2 2015
It is important to remember that the skin is an organ, it absorbs everything it comes in contact with and as such natural products like Maxasorb D3 Cream are looked at as a supplement for the entire body. Maxasorb D3 is paraben free and made with natural ingredients – listed as: water, aloe juice, coconut oil, glycerin, palm stearic acid, emulsifying wax, cetyl myristoleate, panthenol, cetyl alcohol, Vitamin D3 – 1000IU/dose, Vitamin E, phenoxethanol, tetrasodium EDTA, scorbic acid, citric acid.... The instructions on the bottle were a little confusing in that it didn’t’ specify where to apply the supplement on the skin, only to “rub a full pump onto the skin 1-2 times daily… children under 12 years should only use once per day” – to apply externally only and to avoid contact with the eyes. ...I thought it would be wise to apply it on different areas each time, although the product did not suggest this. Both Dave and I noticed that it soaked in right away, and there was no scent at all – we definitely noticed that we had softened skin where it was applied. The lotion is odorless, hypoallergenic and I had no allergic reaction (I’m super sensitive). ..I was slightly concerned about the fact it uses a pump to disperse the product, while it likely measures the dose more accurately my concern lay in that most pump style containers leave a great deal of the product in the bottom and you have to cut the container open to access the last of the product. ...The 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.) container is solid white, and doesn’t have a recycle symbol on the bottom or a plastic # so I’m not sure if one can recycle it or not. Each container offers 60 doses and should be stored at 55-85˚F.

5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful product; a conscious company, June 2 2015
It was such a sincere pleasure to work with Jan Williams of Simply Pure Skin Care company re: this review project for their Organic Rosehip Oil product. Jan is the president of the small company (based in Wildomar, California – USA) and a licensed esthetician; they sell other pure products made from emu oil and shea butter. ...Rosehips are known for their incredibly high Vitamin C content – many people make tea out of wild-harvested berries or buy the hulled berries at health stores for baking, jelly or tea...rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids – which moisturize the skin and reduce the effects of exposure to sun and other elements (i.e. chemicals, pollution, cold and wind) that lead to premature aging and skin damage. Rosehip oil is also a rich source of Vitamin A. The cold-pressed oil is processed in small quantities and shipped to Amazon in weekly shipments in order to ensure the freshness and high quality of this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars learning spanish made easy, May 11 2015
I have always loved the sound of the Spanish language and often said that if I was capable of learning a language, beyond English and a little sign language, it would be Spanish. Well, I finally got my chance!...Whenever I check out a book I am often interested in how eco-friendly it is and while this soft cover book is printed on acid-free paper, it has no recycled content or any mention of carbon offset. ...I’m excited to study this book and it will certainly be a member of my personal library collection for life

3.0 out of 5 stars I think with products like these it is always a personal thing – some ..., May 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think with products like these it is always a personal thing – some people with have reactions, others might not see positive results, and still for others they may have a good deal of improvement of wrinkles and softer skin. Most of the reviewers who had something positive to say were saying it didn’t really give them anti-aging qualities but certainly gave them softer skin, and some people did find the fine lines around their eyes were not as pronounced.
Personally, I found the product doesn't measure up to the other brand I tried - my face definitely flushed red and felt hot, but it soaked in easily. I'm not sure I'd purchase this myself, but would certainly recommend others try it

All in all – I have to say that we are impressed and pleased with the product. Musicians should definitely have this in with their gear – sound studios and recording studios would greatly benefit from the clips, too. We highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't rate this book high enough!!!, Jan. 16 2008
Cesar’s Way

Cesar Millan is one of the most sought-after dog rehabilitation experts of all time and his Dog Psychology Center (Los Angeles, CA) experiences more than 100 calls per day. He is most famous for the Nation Geographic Channel’s Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan TV series, which is currently in the fifth season. However he has appeared on numerous television programs, as a guest on popular talk shows and has been profiled in numerous magazines. He works tirelessly as a lecturer and an author of two best-selling books. His wife Ilusion, which I can tell you from personal experience, has created a revolutionary collar to help owners be the leader during walks. The couple has also founded a wonderful charitable organization known as the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation where they provide financial support and rehabilitation expertise to shelters.

Cesar’s television show offers DVD’s for season one through four for those who are interested in owning a copy. He also offers several DVD’s through his website dealing with specific issues, such as bringing a puppy into a home and how to start the training. Readers can find articles, advice, short videos and more at: [...]

His first book, Cesars Way, was on the bestseller list for 15 weeks in a row and there are over a million copies in print. His second book, Be the Pack Leader, Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog… and Your Life, is bound to be equally embraced by dog-lovers, if not more so.

In this book Cesar offers an in-depth look at the methods he uses and the principles of dog psychology. This book goes deep in to the psychology of dogs and humans and offers realistic tips on how to become a pack leader at home, and in life. Over and over Cesar reiterates that everything revolves around the handler’s energy. I found that changing my responses and feelings were certainly the key to handling our two young and energetic dogs and noticed an immediate change in their responses. The book also delves into Cesar’s background and his personality, which I could relate to quite well.

I was amazed at examples of extreme cases such as the two pit bulls that were trained to fight with other dogs, but when they failed their owners they were abandoned with their wounds and one was even doused in gasoline and set aflame. Yet Cesar shows us that even these dogs can be rehabilitated and the abused animals can enjoy a long, healthy and happy life with the people they love. Both our dogs are rescued animals and it gives us such hope for them to know that if those poor animals could survive and thrive after an experience like that, ours will be just fine.

Be the Pack Leader, Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog… and Your Life has a suggested retail price of $25.95 (US), which is a bargain for a self-help book of this genre and for its size, 336 pages. It is made for heavy handling and is protected with both a durable hard cover and a glossy slipcover. Be the Pack Leader, Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog… and Your Life is also available as a Random House audio book and an ebook. Cesar co-wrote this book with Melissa Jo Peltier, who is an executive producer and writer for the Nation Geographic Channel’s Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan TV series. Harmony Books recently released the book in Oct 2007 and yet it is already becoming a common topic for dog-lovers.

My husband and I have been big fans of Cesar’s TV show, and rent the DVD’s at our local video store quite often. (We choose not to have cable TV). When I noticed the title come up on the list of available books to review at Curled-Up With a Good Book, I was excited and thrilled to send in my acceptance for the project. When the box of review projects arrived in the mail, my husband took this copy to read as soon as he saw it in the stack. He was lucky that I was already involved in another project! It was an experience I will not soon forget. This book is certainly destined for our reference shelf, and will never leave our hands – its just too valuable!

Rating 8 out of 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful!, Nov. 9 2007
Author Char Matejovsky has partnered up with illustrator Robaire Ream to create an exceptional children?s book that teaches through rhyme and incredibly detailed images. I feel the book would be most appropriate for children aged between 5 and 9.

Stones & Bones would appeal to children, classes and families interested in scientific study of history, anthropology, dinosaurs and early man. Stimulating, full-color images challenge the mind and educate at the same time as supplying a sense of comfort through the cozy, family-like scenes. They are so detailed that the more one looks at the illustrations, the more one sees.

The 32-page hard cover book does not have a slipcover, but seems to be of high quality. The pages feel thick and sturdy. It is accompanied by a CD that contains the ?stones & Bones Song: The Song of the Meadowlark? performed by the Santa Rosa Children?s Chorus. The pianist was Mark Osten, the lyrics and music were created by Char Matejovsky and it was directed by Carol Menke. With this long list of contributors I came to realize how this book became such a wonderful creation. I certainly appreciated the phonetics glossary at the end of the book. Parents, grandparents and teachers are encouraged to visit the stonesandbonesbook.com website, which they will find is a valuable resource.

I encourage parents to pick up this book for their young ones ? it?s never too early to learn. Without hesitation, I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars well-written, Oct. 19 2007
I thought this was a well written book - you should definitely consider "True Green" and another book I enjoyed that is very similar only more focused on showing the individual they are truly powerful, that they can find a positive lifestyle and leave a lasting legacy... "Trash Talk - An Inspirational Guide to Saving Time and Money through Better Waste & Resource Management"... These are both excellent books!
