Default Name one great but not well known product for anything nonhair

Here's mine: Gel Kam. Gel Kam is available in most drugstores for sensitive teeth. A great product!

I was having pain in a tooth and saw my dentist. He can't take x-rays because I've had brain tumors so he bangs on my teeth and pokes around with sharp instruments to try to locate the pain and see if it is a cavity or not. I DREAD the dentist!

Long story short, he wasn't sure what was causing the pain and recommended Gel Kam. It worked like a charm. Pain is gone. CP is happy!

Post your great but little known products!

Hm...well, I use flaxseed gel as a clear mascara and a brow gel. Does that count?

I have extremely sensitive teeth so I really appreciate the rec^^^.

My recs are 1) magnesium malate for body aches, muscular pain, nerve pain, stress and anxiety. Magnesium oxide for constipation. (Thnx, Crimsonshedemon)

2) Black & Decker "the Mouse" hand sander and three grit levels of sand paper for my extremely callous prone, rough hoof-like dry heels. My feet laugh at everything else. (Ped Egg? buwhahahaha Pumice stone? heeeheeeeheeee you're killing me!)

Spiderlashes - I'm with you on mag oxide for constipation. Works like a charm!

What a great idea about the B&D sander and sand paper. I never would have thought of that.

I have very thin, sensitive skin and burn/bruise easily. Two lifesavers for me have been Scarguard (for new scars, particularly burns because I love to cook) and Deramend for bruises (bruises that would generally last over a month are gone in less than two weeks!) Both products are expensive, but totally worth the money for me.

I take both of these forms of magnesium - how much of the oxide do you take for the constipation (my daughter just watched me type and is laughing at me!)

You can use any form of magnesium.for constipation. You just keep taking more until you're loose. Mag oxide is only good as a laxative. Use a quality form and you'll get more benefits. Like a 2 for 1.

Hawaiian Silky curl activator for beautiful and soft curls (I have 4a hair). Cheap too. Around $5-6. Also raw honey to wash face and extra virgin coconut oil for hair (prepoo) and as a night cream for my face.

Parsley - either curly or flat. It really ups the taste on almost any salad. Just cut a few slivers off a bunch. I use flat bc it blends in better w/ the other greens visually and no notices it and they are like "wow, why is this so good!?"

I brought a salad to work for lunch today and somehow, I forgot the parsley. Boy am I pissed off right now!
