Orthaheel Women's Relax Slipper
Orthaheel Women's Relax Slipper
Price: $29.99 - $80.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Relieved my foot pain almost instantly, BUT the sizes need some work., December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I normally wear a size 7, so that's what I ordered. They're huge! Thankfully, the adjustable velcro keeps them on my feet, because once I put them on and was able to walk without pain, I realized that there was no way I was going to send them back.

I think out of the nightsplints, the stretches, the orthotics, the cortisone, the ice, the ultrasound, and the voodoo magic, this is probably one of the most effective treatments of my Plantar Fasciitis. They're worth considering, if you're sitting at your computer with a painful heel, wondering where to go from here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely beautiful., August 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a beautiful hip scarf with a great sound. It appears to be very solidly constructed and well-made. However, i do feel that it runs a bit smaller than more conventional looking hip scarves, so just keep the one size fits 'most' in mind if you're on the larger side of things!

This came quickly and i couldn't be more pleased with it.

***Update: I am dropping my starts to 3 because after 3 dance classes, it's started shedding coins like there's no tomorrow. I store my hip scarves carefully and I've never had this problem with any other scarves before. So disappointed as it's truly one of the most beautiful hip scarves I've ever come across.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, January 17, 2013
Runs on the small side, especially in the bust. The Energy color looks fabulous on my computer, but is a rather ordinary boring green in person.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy cool chandelier, April 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The light was delivered very quickly and was very well packed. Mindful of previous reviews, I had an electrician assemble and install this light. He was surprised at how long it took him to put together, but the results are worth it. It's a great looking light!

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing Part, March 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: KidKraft Step 'n Store (Misc.)
I received my stool today, and immediately noticed that part #5 was missing. It's a large wooden board, I can't imagine how it didn't make it into the box. KidKraft does have great customer service and is replacing the part, but I'd rather have had it in the box in the first place. Irritating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible, cheap product, horrible customer service., June 23, 2011
We received this tent as a gift. When I set it up for my kids, one of the poles instantly snapped in half s I was carefully putting it up. The 'customer service' site gives no way to reach them by email, instead directing you to a phone number. I called the phone number to request a replacement pole, and was told that it was impossible to get a replacement, and I should take the tent back to the store from where it was purchased. I explained - again - that it was a gift, and that I had no idea where it was from, and was basically told 'too bad'. While the service representative did admit that they would replace it IF it was mailed back to them, she did NOT offer me their address, instead, reiterating that I should do my own investigative work to find out where the tent came from.

This is an awful, cheap product, and the fact that the company refused to work with me made it even worse. I will make sure that we don't buy any Discovery Kids products for ourselves, or anyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sunscreen for those who truly wish to avoid sun., June 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After my mother had a few cancerous moles removed, I became quite vigilant about sunscreen at the ripe old age of 16. Unfortunately, despite buying the highest SPF sunscreens, and reapplying every 2 hours, I would inevitably end up tanned - or worse yet, burnt. Blotchy breakouts on my face from even the most gentle of sunscreens was to be expected.

When i had children, who also had sensitive skin, my quest for a good, safe sunscreen became more important. We're outside every day in the summer, and we play hard. I wanted to find a good sunscreen that could protect us all, preferably without rashes and breakouts.

This sunscreen fits the bill. One application in the morning seems to be sufficient to keep us protected all day - even in the water. No one breaks out, and no one complains about the smell.

That isn't to say that it's perfect. It's thick. It's white. If you don't rub it in well enough, you will have friends making anxious inquiries about your health. And if you want a summer tan, well.. this one is probably too effective for you. We're still January pale - and I'm thrilled.

1.0 out of 5 stars The fire department just left., November 19, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
*********************UPDATE in 2013. I just got a call from the company asking that i delete this comment. I'm not going to. Why? Because this is as close to being a famous author as i'm ever going to get. And oh yeah, it was my experience, and i think asking people to delete their less than stellar comments about your product is kind of well, dishonest. BUT, i'll give them credit for having the testicular fortitude to try. I mean, they seem to believe in their product, so good on them!

They generously offered me a new humidifier. I graciously declined. As much fun as it was having the fire department show up in the dead of night,i will pass on risking that experience again. I mean, i can find new and interesting ways to get the fire department to come!! They then asked that i would be your educational advocate on how to use your Crane humidifier, so out of the kindness of my cold, black, heart, i agreed.

I am, alas, not getting reimbursed for doing this. Like i said, i didn't really want another humidifier, and they didn't offer me wine, coffee, cash, or chocolate, which are things i totally would've gone for. But here it goes.

HOW TO USE YOUR CRANE HUMIDIFIER:

DON'T USE HARD WATER, MEDIUM WATER, OR EVEN WATER THAT HAS BEEN NEAR VIAGRA. FILTER YOUR WATER LIKE YOU SHOULD FILTER YOUR FILTHY POTTY MOUTH.

NEVER, EVER CLOSE THE DOOR FULLY WHEN THE HUMIDIFIER IS IN USE. HUMIDIFIERS GET UP TO BAD, BAD THINGS WHEN LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES.

DO NOT FEED YOUR HUMIDIFIER AFTER MIDNIGHT.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, LOOK YOUR CUTE LITTLE HUMIDIFIER IN THE EYE. IT MAY LOOK ADORABLE, BUT IT WILL COMPLETELY CONTROL YOUR MIND AFTER THAT.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR HUMIDIFIER INTO THE BATHROOM AT MIDNIGHT, LOOK INTO THE MIRROR, AND CHANT 'BLOODY MARY' THREE TIMES.

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR HUMIDIFIER TO DRIVE, NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT BEGS.

THIS HUMIDIFIER IS NOT A TOY, NOR IS IT A GOOD TENNIS PARTNER.

CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAVE UNSUPERVISED ACCESS TO THE HUMIDIFIER, UNLESS YOU DON'T LIKE CHILDREN, IN WHICH CASE IT'S FINE.

THIS HUMIDIFIER IS NOT A LIFE-SAVING DEVICE, UNLESS OF COURSE YOU ARE DYING OF DEHYDRATION AND ARE ALL SHRIVELLED UP LIKE A RAISIN. IF YOU ARE, PLEASE USE IT AS A LIFE-SAVING DEVICE IMMEDIATELY. IT'LL TOTALLY BE AWESOME.

I hope that this tutorial helps you enjoy your super awesome Crane humidifier. Please, go forth and humidify. It'll be great, Crane promises!**********************

(Original comment as follows:)

I purchased a Hello Kitty humidifier for my daughter on October 28th. It's been run and well-maintained in a the few weeks we've had it. Unfortunately, tonight the motor caught on fire. Thankfully, the smoke alarms alerted us and the fire department before a tragedy happened - my seven year old was asleep in the room. I will be alerting the manufacturer and amazon of the safety concerns, but in the meantime, you might want to skip this purchase until it's deemed safe. I will not forget the haze in my daughter's room when the door was opened tonight for a long time.

The fire department confirmed that the problem was with the humidifier, although it was being used correctly. Hopefully this was an isolated incident, but please be wary of this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent timesaver., June 16, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an excellent styling tool! I love the adjustable heat settings, because even as I straighten my hair, untouched parts go from wet to damp. I love that I never have to put any extra heat on my hair.

My hair is fine and very frizzy and curly. This will keep it straight for twenty-four hours, which is amazing. It means that I can straighten my hair before bed, wake up, and go with only minimal touch-ups. As the mother of two children, one of them a young infant, I need all the help I can get in saving time. Not having to dry my hair before straightening it is a real help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone!, June 16, 2007
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Everyone in my family has enjoyed this product - from my five year old, who enjoys making the spin art, to my 3 month old, who enjoys watching the light effects. This has given all of us hours of fun. It doesn't make much of a mess, and the machine itself cleans up easily. It does not come with a lot of paint or paper, so you may wish to purchase refills at the same time - or make your own paper refills with thick sheets of poster board-like paper.
