Praise for basq!

basq is starting the New Year off right with praise from fans of our products.  The following testimonials were posted on the basq website.  

Jennifer from New York City posted: “I was at a baby shower event in Manhattan, and having a SUPER ITCHY day- I saw their (basq) booth and snatched up a bottle of their Resilient Body Oil (I was desperate at the time for some sort of relief)- Well, let me tell you something- this stuff is INCREDIBLE. I mean, stop shopping around for other oils and creams, add this to your cart and buy it! I absolutely love the texture, which reminds me of a hair serum/oil- but it has a faint powdery scent and once it's applied, absorbs right into the skin! Not sticky, not greasy- just smoothing, hydrating, and most importantly- relieves my pregnancy itch and skin dehydration. I am now online purchasing a few more as gifts for my newly pregnant friends. Try this stuff- you will be IN LOVE. ”

The Dry Skin Cure

By Brooke Ditlow

                Is your skin starting to react to the change in season?  As the temperature drops, it can really do a number on our skin.  I live in a dry climate and the colder it gets outside, the worse my skin looks and feels.  It got to the point where I was putting on lotion several times a day and my hands were still cracking.  Luckily, I discovered a cure!  I started treating my hands to the following routine several times a week.  It has made a world of difference.

                Step 1- Wet hands and apply basq Citrus Body Polish.  Massage into hands and each finger in a circular motion.  This Citrus Polish is great because it exfoliates but it doesn’t dry out the skin.  It has Shea Butter and Essential Oils so it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

                Step 2- Rinse and dry hands.

                Step 3- Apply basq Resilient Body Oil.  I fell in love with this oil when I was pregnant.  basq’s Resilient Body Oil provides amazing hydration without leaving skin feeling oily.  This oil sinks in very quickly and it has an amazing smell that makes me feel like I just left the spa.

If your hands feel this good after using these products, imagine what it will do for the rest of your body!

Delicious Healthy Meals for Women on the Go: Fall Edition- Brooke Ditlow

Finding Balance in Life and Pregnancy this Fall

It’s fall!  I love fall.  The air is crisp.  The beautiful colors of fall surround us and we no longer get overheated every time we go outside.  I also think it is a great time to evaluate our lives in that constant search for balance.  If you have a child at home who is in school or if you yourself are a student, you know what an exciting time the start of a new school year can be.  You have brand new school supplies, brand new clothes, a brand new schedule and a brand new chance to start fresh!

As the leaves change, this may be a great opportunity for some self evaluation.  How are you feeling right now?  Do you feel like you need a change?  Is there something that is making you feel out of balance or out of sync?  When the schedule changed at our house this year as my daughter started school, I realized that I had an amazing opportunity to start fresh.  I looked at my ridicules schedule and started weeding.  I tried to take out all of the things that I didn’t actually have to do and the things that I felt did not make my life more satisfying and more balanced.  This can be very difficult because it often means telling people “no”.  However, this time of year people tend to be a bit more understanding of schedule change.

Another reason that fall is absolutely my favorite time of year are the cold weather recipes!  I love the fresh food and grilling that come with summer but there is nothing like walking in the door at the end of the day to the smell of soup cooking in your kitchen.  I’m sure that when you hear the words Slow Cooker, many of you think of your grandma in her house coat.  However, if you do not currently use a slow cooker, imagine yourself walking into your house at the end of the day to the delicious smell of dinner already made.  Added bonus, the recipe that I am about to share with you is healthy! 

If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can pick one up at target for between $20.00-$40.00.  Then try out this great recipe from Disney Farmhouse Chicken and Garden Soup;16

I made this Creamy Farmhouse Chicken and Garden Soup for my family and they all loved it.  My 4 year old daughter is getting more and more difficult to please and even she loved this meal.  I loved the soup and I really loved that the crazy hours in my house, (4-6 o’clock) were calm and peaceful since I wasn’t scrambling to get dinner on the table!   

Do My Eyes Look As Tired As I Feel?

Do my eyes look as tired as I feel?- By Brooke Ditlow

Back pain, discomfort, and indigestion along with nonstop worry and anxiety can make it very difficult to sleep during pregnancy.  Once the beautiful bundle of joy is born, a full night of sleep certainly does not get any easier.  How do you go out to face the world in the morning with those puffy tired eyes?  Try the basq Cucumber Tea Eye Gel.  Not only does it feel great on tired puffy eyes, but the natural coolant of the cucumber fights swelling and puffiness.  The green tea fights environmental free radicals that damage the skin.  The best part is that this gel feels wonderful and truly makes me look more alert.  I like to store it in the refrigerator for an extra cooling sensation.  The basq Cucumber Tea Eye Gel is featured in the September 2010 issue of Pregnancy & Newborn magazine as well as OK Weekly.
