Rated 5 out of 5 by from Also my favorite Lip treatment ResQ ointment is great for all of its stated purposes. It is also my favorite Lip treatment , works better than any lip balm out there and can also be used around the lip area for those fine lines "smokers lines". That happen as we get older. It is also my favorite cuticle treatment and I have even used it as an eye cream when I've run out. I always keep a tin on my nightstand, my dressing table and in my purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and tested family favourite I've been using this ointment for many many years - especially to treat cuts and burns. I once suffered received quite a deep, 4" weal to my hand while moving a hot shelf in the oven. After the would failed to knit, I applied the REs-Q-Ointment and overnight there was a huge difference, and no scarring. It really it our tried and trusted friend for cuts, burns, bruises and stings - just as it states on the tin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works rather well My son had tons of fire ant bites, and some mosquito bites. He put this on, and it removed the itchiness, scarring, and bump. It healed in half a day. It works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells nice I just got this as part of a set and am using it on eczema on my elbow that won't heal even with the prescription ointment. This is making it softer. I would like to say don't put it on your cats because lavender essential oil is poisonous to them as is most all essential oil so check before putting any type on them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Effective Multi Purpose Ointment I have been using this product for a decade and I am constantly finding new uses for it. Works amazing against bugs bites including no-see-ums, also works to prevent getting bug bites. Immediately relieves and begins to heals sunburn and rashes and blisters for those allergic to sunburn. Great for bruises, cuts, scrapes, and dry or itchy skin. Smells amazing. I’ve also used as emergency lip balm and to smooth frizzy hair. Repels bugs, heals many skin issues. I keep a tin with me at all times. Great for first aid kits. Works better than benedryl for hives, allergic reactions, and poison ivy. I love this product and use it almost daily. I wish they made this in a lotion format so I could slather it on all over my body every day!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Immediately on Insect Bites I use this Ointment for mosquito bites and it works wonders! It stops the itch immediately. A co-worker had been bitten by some type of insect and had been scratching for over a day. I gave her one of my tins and it brought her immediate relief! Unfortunately you have to order this online, I used to be able to find it in stores along with your Poison Ivy soap - another miracle item! I agree with another comment, bigger tins and make it available in stores!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old Formula was the BEST Love this stuff and still use it religiously! Sad to see that the formula changed. It still works wonders, but it does take longer. Curious why they changed the formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Product I was given this product several years ago when it was called "Comfrey Oil". Over the years it consistently proved itself to be a powerful healing tool. It quickly became my "go to" salve for most conditions such as burns, insect bites, fever blisters, rashes, etc. You don't have to use much of it to get amazing and quick relief. When I finally ran out I quickly discovered that it had been discontinued. I was distressed and called Burts Bees. I was told that it was renamed "Res-Q Ointment" and basically contained the same healing ingredients. Since obtaining the Res-Q Ointment I am happy to report that it does provide the exact same and quick healing results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works for itchy skin rash! I'm allergic to the sun, so if I have too much sun I will get horrible, itchy rashes. This usually happens to places on my body that gets too much sun: my face, upper chest, and arms. Unfortunately, you can't always plan for unexpectedly going outside for extended period of time or your sunblock wearing off. I usually noticed 2-3 days after going outside if I will rash up. I've tried multiple anti-itch cream and medication. Most of the many creams do not work for me anymore. But I read on facebook that a friend had used Burt's Bee Res-Q ointment for a bug bite and it really relieved the itching. I purchase this to try without any real expectation since I usually need something really strong to help with the itch but I was willing to try anything. To my surprise, the ointment started to work and relieve the itch. Because I wasn't itchy anymore, I didn't scratch and the rash went away even faster than it would normally. I also like the it has a nice herbal scent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but maybe change of formula? It still works great but not as good as before, is it because big company bought the brand and changed some formulas?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula a change for the worse This product used to heal everything quickly but they changed the formula and removed comfrey and tocopherol and it doesn’t work anymore. Please bring back the old formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, itchiness disappears every time. After I read the reviews I bought this ointment to try onto my eczema over my cheeks. I kind had a doubt at the beginning but it is really soothing and itchiness goes away. It even prevents my eczema from the outbreak. Soon after the trial, I run to the store and bought a few more to stock up. Now I’m a fan of this container as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chigger Relief I now have several tins of this because it stops the itching of chigger relief for an entire day. Using this product, chigger notes are gone in 2 days!!!.... it’s a must have in your camping kit or medicine cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun burn, cooking burns ,,, I got this as a gift years ago, still had some left. I got a sunburn on vacation and used what I had left. Put it on several times before bed and woke up with no issues. That's all I have used it for but sounds like it works for other issues as well. Hope the ingredients don't change as mentioned earlier in review. Dont fix it, if it ain't broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my skin I'm so glad I found this ointment. My only complaint is that I can't find it in stores anymore. I use it when my exzema pops up, and recently started using it on my face at night to help with acne flare ups. Honestly, any time I notice something is "off" with my skin, I reach for my little container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nurses' Hand Saver Found this product years ago and it is, hands down, the best hangnail remedy and moisturizer ever. Being a nurse, I wash my hands several times in a day. My hands would not make it through our Northern winters without the Res-Q-Ointment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Old formula was 5 stars A number of years ago this was the one product that finally helped to permanently clear up eczema I had on my hand — even the steroid cream only worked as long as I continued using it. Now, years later, I’ve developed a small patch of eczema on my hand and still had an old tin of this in the refrigerator, so I took it out and was looking at the ingredients since I’ve started making my own salves and I was curious if I could try to create my own version and I noticed that the ingredients were different than the one that is sold now. It has almond oil as the first ingredient and no canola, soybean or corn oil. Those 3 oils are cheap oils that are almost always genetically modified if they aren’t organic. I am disappointed that Burt’s Bees would change such a great product and add such cheap, garbage ingredients, especially for a product they are charging so much for. I wouldn’t even consider using this new formula unless it was organic or Non-GMO Project Verified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff I was digging in the yard and got into an ant hill. Fortunately they were not fire ants, but I got bitten nonetheless. I dabbed a little of this green miracle on my bites and within several minutes my bites were soothed and itch-free. I also use it for minor cuts and torn cuticles. This is the best—while healing isn’t instantaneous, I know my skin is being healed naturally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Savior! I have been dealing with terrible rashes around both of my ankles since I was 11 years old ( I am currently 17 years old). After my aunt recommended me this ointment, my rash is starting to heal for the first time in forever! All the itchiness, redness, and bumps are starting to go away. I am even thinking of stocking up on this ointment as it is also nice for small blemishes and cuts. Lastly, the size and packaging of the product is also very nice for traveling and just carrying it around outside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best "healer of a burn" ever!! I keep a container next to my stove. Everytime I have accidentally burned myself....I apply a thin layer; once every hour times 3-4× and the next day it is healed!!!! No, scar, no reddness....gone. Love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of My Favorites I use this product as lip balm and it works better than previous lip balms I've tried. I have eczema around my lips and using this helps keep moisturize and it's not harsh on sensitive skin. I would highly recommend this to any one who suffers from dry skin. I also like to use this on dry spots on my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Product EVER! I first purchased this product after a vet suggested we find something more natural for healing wounds on our dog. The "chemical" products would make him sick if he licked the product off his wound. This was the was a faster healer than that nasty stuff and and didn't make the dog sick if he licked it. Now we use it on everything from the dog, to zits, to cuts and scrapes. I have turned so many people onto this product I've lost count. My latest is a co-worker that had the same issues with a pet. He said this product (which I have affectionately coined "boo-boo juice") healed his dog's head wound in one day. I will give it as gifts again this Christmas because it's just that good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Rescue Honestly this is a lifesaver. I used it years ago when I got stung by wasps. I had stings up and down the back of my leg. Only thing that worked. On Thanksgiving, I got stung by a black gnat on the face. ResQ ointment has also worked for this. I had a freek out momement thinking it's not on the market anymore. Thank goodness it's still available. :)
