AmazonBasics Everyday Double Fitted Sheet, Green
AmazonBasics Everyday Double Fitted Sheet, Green

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing basic about this, 31 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A first-rate fitted sheet, elasticated all around to ensure a good fit and thus is less likely to come unstuck during the night as you sleep, no matter how restlessly. I’ve got the sheet in green, which is a pale, pastel minty colour that is very pleasing to the eye. The sheet is 30cm deep so will fit a standard double bed rather than one with a deeper mattress.

It’s made of a good quality cotton with no visible flaws that feels soft against the skin. Stitching is neat and even and there are no loose threads. At 200 thread count, it’s a sheet that isn’t going to prove too much trouble to either wash or iron and it won’t take up too much space in the washing machine.

There’s nothing basic about the sheet (except potentially the price, which is currently not shown as the product is out of stock). It looks very well made, feels soft and won’t cause furrowed brows when it comes time to wash it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The long arm of the selfie, 27 May 2015
Sent to me free of charge for review purposes, Fugetek’s stick enables you to extend your reach to capture more of the scene behind you (or get more people in on the action) and thus get the most out of your selfies. Things have come a long way since such shots required the use of a tripod, camera and timer!

The stick works like the leg of a tripod and has three sectional extensions to achieve the maximum extension of 1250mm. The stick is very stable and the extended sections clip securely in place so I have no concern about its ability to hold my phone.

The phone itself fits into a sprung clip; once again this is secure enough I have no concern about the phone slipping out whilst it’s not so tight that it prevents easy access. Once fitted, the mount enables the phone to move through 180 degrees in one plane and 360 degrees in the other, so your phone can point wherever you want it to.

The supplied remote control is an essential, particularly when the stick is extended; it fits neatly into the handle for storage from where it can also be used to take your shots. The remote paired easily with my iPhone and enabled me to take stills and movie footage at the click of a button. A zoom function is also available but I think I’ll need to download a separate app to use that.

A novel device to use for the now ubiquitous selfie and I can see it also being useful for watching nests on the house from cover of a window. It’s a really good piece of kit and comes complete with a drawstring bag to keep it safe.


Rimmel London Wonder'Full Wake Me Up Mascara, Black
Rimmel London Wonder'Full Wake Me Up Mascara, Black
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Hourglass, 27 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Presentation of this mascara is quite nice; a curved and twisted tube in luminous green, bulkier than it possibly needs to be but it won’t get lost as the bottom of your bag.

The wand is an interesting hourglass shape and that does help to separate out the lashes and thus avoid that glued together look. The mascara itself however seemed on the dry side and clumped more than I would normally expect although fortunately not to the extent that I ended up with flakes on my skin even after a few hours of wear.

The wand seems to be a winner but the mascara let the side down a bit. Four stars.


Murad Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream 15 ml
Murad Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream 15 ml
Price: £67.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up, 26 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Murad Renewing Eye Cream states it will firm the area around your eyes, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and minimise under-eye puffiness and shadows.

The pump-bottle contains 15ml of cream and a small amount goes a long way (around a pin head per eye is about all you’ll need). You are advised to pat the cream onto the skin rather than rub and I felt a slight astringency as it was absorbed quickly into my skin. My eyes felt fresher and the skin more vibrant and hydrated than normal after application.

I was suffering from a very slight puffiness under the eye on one occasion and this did appear to be much reduced after applying this cream and I also had the sense that the area appeared brighter subsequently. I’m not sure totally convinced it’s worth the price tag but it does appear to make a slight difference and might be worth a shot if you suffer from puffy eyes at times.


Sophie Conran 18 cm Ceramic Coated Cast Aluminium Saucepan with Glass Lid, White
Sophie Conran 18 cm Ceramic Coated Cast Aluminium Saucepan with Glass Lid, White
Price: £46.28

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 26 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a few pieces of Sophie Conran for Portmeirion cutlery and crockery and, as I was in need of new pans that were dishwasher safe, decided to get these. Available individually, they are safe to use up to 200C in the oven and suitable for all hobs. Attractive product packaging means they are also very easy to gift and would therefore make very good wedding, engagement or housewarming gifts.

The exterior is rippled to compliment the ceramic range and the pieces look good enough to take to the table.

The pans are very light as they are made of aluminium but they sit very well on the hob as most of the weight is in the base - so there is none of that annoying tendency for a lightweight pan to tilt when empty. Heat distribution across the base is very even. Although there is a warning that the handle can get hot, this hasn't been a problem when used on the hob. The glass lids are slim profile so they fit easily into dishwasher racks and are close fitting to the pan, providing a good seal when cooking.

Construction is very good and the ceramic coating is incredibly non-stick; food just glides off with minimal oil needed. The inclusion of a shaped piece of felt with all pans is a nice touch; keep this to avoid damaging pans when stacking - you will want more of them!

Available in black or white, so take your pick; I'm mixing mine up. At the moment the saucepans are only available in an 18 or 20 cm size; I'm hoping a larger one will be added to the range in the future. These are great quality and should last for a long time, just remember to use that piece of felt to avoid damaging the ceramic coating if you stack these up.

Rexel Manilla A4 Divider Understated Pastel Colour (Pack of 30)
Rexel Manilla A4 Divider Understated Pastel Colour (Pack of 30)

4.0 out of 5 stars Long Lasting, 26 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good quality card dividers to help sort out the paperwork in your folders. As there are twenty tabs, the space on which to identify the contents is necessarily small, so I'm using an A4 index at the front of my folder and corresponding numbers/letters on the tabs themselves.

The top sheet has the Rexel logo, item description and barcode printed on it, the rest are blank. Although the tabs were slightly bent on arrival due to the way they had been packaged by the manufacturer, the thickness of the card meant that this was easily rectified with no apparent long term impact on the dividers or their potential longevity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colour coordination, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ten sturdy A4 plastic ring binders in pink, green, orange and blue. You get two each of the former colours and three each of the latter. They have a fairly thin 3cm spine and a capacity to hold 200 sheets depending on the grade of paper.

The ring binders are well made with curved corners (no sharp bits) and accurate, strong shutting rings; I will update my review if these start to part company in the future.

A handy clear pocket on the front is large enough to hold most business cards and there is also a smaller plastic pocket on the spine that will accommodate a card listing contents. Inside another clear pocket allows storage of loose sheets.

The only drawback comes if you use punched pockets as these extend beyond the edge of the folder; they could have done with being a centimetre or so wider, hence four stars.

I have used similar plastic folders for daily office use over the last six years or so. I find they are more resilient than the cardboard alternatives, particularly if accessed regularly and I have no reason to doubt these will last as well as my existing stock.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm not won over, 20 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I generally like Rexel products and my office contains a number of their items from letter trays and a pen tidy to folders and wallets. The name normally conveys a sense of quality to me but I just don’t feel this is up to the usual standard.

So why am I less than keen? Well, the folder has two prongs so that you can securely hold punched A4 sheets of paper in place but I felt the access and usability was very awkward. Two pockets on the inside front and back enable storage of loose documents and paperwork, with a triangular flap on the corresponding top edge to help hold things in place; these are okay but not particularly well finished. The back pocket also has a clear envelope-style storage pocket in which you could place business cards, a pen and other small odds and ends but the plastic does not sufficiently robust that I believe it will not withstand a lot of use before it splits or tears (I will update in this respect as necessary).

For office/in front of client use, there is a sticky product label on the front of the folder that was easy to remove and didn’t leave any residue behind, although I would be tempted to do this soon after arrival rather than store the folders to do later. The ‘Rexel’ name and ‘Advance’ are both printed on the front of the folder; I can accept the brand name but would have preferred the product name on the reverse.

Overall this is a disappointment to me as a long-time fan and user of this brand of products. It feels flimsy and not up to their usual standard and it is not an item I would replace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart accessory, 20 May 2015
A very well made, attractive evening bag that has both hand (really attractive metal semi-circle) and shoulder strap, the latter being long enough to wear across the body. Fully lined and with a decorative clip-closure, it looks special.

The beads and sequins have been applied very well and are sewn rather than glued in place, even having some lines of beads decorating the base of the bag, which is a nice touch.

The bag sits well on a flat surface thanks to the generous base, which also means that storage inside is plentiful with ample room for purse, phone, a good amount of make-up and tissues. There is a little side pocket but it isn't big enough to take a mobile phone.

Presentation is very attractive; the item is boxed and comes with its own nylon drawstring storage bag (quite important to avoid potential loss of beads and sequins when it is in a drawer). The underlying embroidery itself is fairly basic and machine in origin but the bead and sequin work make this stand out from the crowd.

I received this without charge for review purposes
