5.0 out of 5 stars Quality stuff., 7 Dec. 2013
Does exactly what it says and definitely works.
Skin is left with a healthy looking golden glow which is exactly what you want without looking orange or silly.
I prefer to use this alongside another moisturiser and mix the two before applying as it gives me a more even coverage and I find it quite sticky and difficult to apply evenly when using alone.
Other than that its a quality product that delivers and I'd recommend to all anticipating wether or not to purchase.

A great warm and lightweight beanie in a variety of colours and are at a much higher standard than you'd expect for the same price as a bottle of coke!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 19 Oct. 2013
Bought this bag as I was always dropping my phone and loosing money whenever I sat down.
This bag is perfect and does the job, it's sturdy, durable and compact and will save you more than it cost in the long run!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a buy., 4 Aug. 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I know many people are skeptical about these but they definitely do make a difference to your accuracy within your gameplay.
Also, Notch up your sensitivity as you won't see too much a difference if your playing on 2 or 3.

Agreed, they are a bit pricey but they'll probably last longer than the controller itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade., 22 Jan. 2013
Bought this bar as the standard one wasn't long enough for my squat rack and this bar is perfect!

It's solid, heavy (10kg) and the grip on it is excellent, also has loads of room for plates, handy as I have some old vinyl ones.

This is the bar to buy if needing to upgrade!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price, Great workout!, 4 Nov. 2012
Really easy to put up and goes up within a minute and longs you have a standard door frame, it fits perfect.
You don't need to necessarily use the screw attachments as just twisting the bar and keeping it held up by friction is good enough (I weigh 13st and its fine).
Its solid and sturdy, It feels secure and don't feel flimsy.
Im quite surprised of how good of a product this is as it far from breaks the bank and you get a great upper body workout plus you can work the abs to by doing hanging leg raises as well.

A must buy for anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Honest and Complete, 14 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is, if not, one of the best books out for those wanting to get bigger AND lose weight to give you a lean body sculpture.
I've not put pen to paper just yet but I've read through the whole book plus had a look at the free little bonus part which gives you an idea of what to use, eat and supplements.
I've looked through quite a few books and websites relating to weight training and they all seem to be confusing, non-complete and drift off to something unrelated.

With this its straight to the point, simple and complete. It pretty much covers everything you'll need to know, Exercises, rep and set ranges, nutrition, supplements and tons more.

This book is a complete guide to what you need to know so look no further!

JVC HAFX1X Xtreme Xplosives In Ear Canal Headphones
JVC HAFX1X Xtreme Xplosives In Ear Canal Headphones
Price: £13.93

4.0 out of 5 stars From a Beats user, These are great!, 29 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll keep it short and sweet... These headphones are a bargin at the price they stand at, they deliver very good sound quality along with a nice deep bass. They come with 3 different ear size buds and a carrying case to store it all in.

Pros:
* Very nice deep bass
* Very good sound quality
* Thicker than usual red cabling
* They feel and so far are durable

Cons:
* The sound doesn't feel pure so to speak
* The highs can be a bit too high which isen't good if you enjoy your music really loud
* The headphone jack can cause the sound out of the right ear to cut out if it isen't in properly (Hard to explain but if your running or walking with your iPod in your pocket as you would, the sound can cut out and you have to adjust the headphone jack by twisting it. This only happens when listening to music on my iPod though).

I also have a pair of in-ear Beats by Dre headphones which broke hence the reason for buying these but while they might not be as good, the sound quality and bass is great and not far off the Beats if I was comparing them and at a price much less, these are a bargin.

Would undoubtably recommend!


PS3 Wireless keypad (PS3)
PS3 Wireless keypad (PS3)
Offered by UK GAMES
Price: £19.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Big hands., 12 Nov. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
A nice little extra for your PS3 but for me personally, I can type faster using the PS3 control pad. Although it should be the other way round, I guess its like texting.

But the drawbacks are big and are deal breakers to me.

The keys are pretty small but will be fine for most people but if your hands or fingers are or the large side then you'll be spending more time correcting your spellings and deleting things, You might as well have just used your Controller.

This keypad attachment although is small, does sort of weigh down your controller which isn't really a big problem as you just get used to it but it can become an irritation if you play Shooting games.

Once fully charged this thing does last a good while but make sure you have an extra one of those charger cables just like your PS3 controller one. ( It should be supplied but its not :/ )

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible laptop!, 25 Oct. 2011
Just got this laptop a few days ago from the Apple store not on Amazon but I am a usual Amazon customer so heres the place for my review ;)

First off, the thing that comes to everyones mind, The price and whats so special...?
You could say its over-priced and you wouldn't be wrong. You could say its great value for what you get and you wouldn't be wrong... In a nutshell, technically thinking, the price doesn't sum up what you get In terms of specs but then again, Its a Mac, your paying for the name, quality, OS and a long lasting good all-round laptop here.

Im new to Mac's and this is my first but have used a Mac in College so have some experience.
Starting up is as quick as bullet, no waiting around ages or watching animations of Windows flying around the screen. Its on within 15-20 secs and straight into the desktop screen with everything at the ready to be used, no waiting for the computer to warm up with a further minuet or so for everything to get readied up.

Performance wise, Its breathtaking. Fast, very fast, at pretty much everything it does. No lagging and waiting around to find things or start up applications.
Mac OSX seems to use the best of its resources and uses them well. The 4gb RAM can handle pretty much multitasking demanding applications at ease that Windows would need more RAM to run multiple things smoothly.
Im not PC or Mac pro but know a decent amount and can see a difference a mile off.

With the Mac, everything seems to work hand in hand and the OSX has a clean & slick look and very easy to use although it will defo need some getting used too.
Navigating around the Mac OSX is a breeze and with many touch gestures to use via the mousepad, its very easy to switch applications, programs and web pages.

Visually, Its incredible. HD videos look amazing and games play with stunning graphics and as smooth as silk depending on what you play of course.
Photos look like no other, vibrant, colourful and brought to life.

The battery lasts very long, its not a lie, it does last ages depending on what you do. For example, today I charged my Macbook up and then browsed the web, listened to a good amount of music and played some GTA on it and it lasted me about 5 hours, my old HP Laptop probably couldn't have done 2 hours.

As for the Macbook pro itself. Its beautiful, sleek and smart looking with a nice illuminated Apple logo on the back.
It comes with a nice changer with a feature called Magsafe. The clue is in the name, its an L shaped charger that magnetically connects to your Macbook to prevent any accidents caused by anyone tripping over the charger cable.
This is a life saver to me, The amount of chargers that have broken due to the cable being tripped over or yanked. Its nice and will definitely save you once in a while.

There are of course negatives to this laptop but not much deal breakers.

The price of course will definitely make you look twice. Its not cheap but as said, its what you receive as a whole package and the quality of it is what makes it. Its more of an investment too, this laptop is definitely "Future proof" and has the technology that will last a while and can handle pretty much most things with ease, also, Its built very well and isn't flimsy.

Gaming. Yes this laptop is ready to do to battle and handles online games very well and smoothly with high settings and HD videos are displayed in all their glory but Games in general aren't really made for the Mac. You might get a few new releases here and there but theres not much a big selection and not recommended for those whole love their games and want to play new games such as Call of duty simply because they're not made for the Mac.

Its a whole new world. Mac OSX will take a day or two to get used to but when you do you'll most likely like it. Im not saying convert to Mac like some of these online guys talk about with this PC vs Mac thing, Its just nice, new and easy to use and you'll probably find yourself doing most things on your Mac than your old PC/Laptop.

All in all here, the question still is, Should you fork out £1550+ to buy a Macbook pro? I'd totally recommend you to do so, you have to experience it to see what your missing.
Its a phenomenal laptop and very powerful, its ready for battle with its quad-core processor and dedicated graphics. As I said beforehand, The Mac uses its resources very well and what you might think isn't enough, probably is because the way its used.
I was thinking the graphics wen't enough but as I said, games aren't made for Mac. The processor might not sound enough but its used well and the Macbook pro is like the car from Back to the Future.

You'll never know till you try it, Ive had a few laptops in the last few years, all Windows based and all broke down.
