4.0 out of 5 stars prompt delivery, 11 Aug 2013

Excellent condition. Prompt delivery. No complaints at all. Would recommend this company. Book looks good too although it is part of a trilogy so will be needing the rest now!

This review is from: Suck It And See (Audio CD)
This looked like a cheap knock off from a Bangkok dodgy bootleggers market stall when it eventually arrived. I don't know if that is how it is supposed to look, maybe. The content is ok. One of the songs got stuck on 'stutter' but not sure if that was the disc or my machine as it didn't happen the second time I played it. In future I will buy CDs at FOPP record store in person like I always used to.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because it was specifically recommended to reduce and improve rough skin on the tops of my arms, little hard pimples which are apparently a common problem. It contains a natural acid which breaks down the hard skin apparently. Reviews said it works within days. I have had this product around 2 weeks. When applied it created a smooth coating on the skin and feels very nice to touch, if water gets on arms it doesn't penetrate the newly applied cream (i.e. if you have a shower soon after applying you will notice that water just glances off where the cream is). This smoothness wears off as the day goes on. My skin feels smoother on some parts but the problem of the hard skin pimples has not changed. In fact it seems almost aggravated as time goes on and now it stings slightly on the bumpy skin when the cream is first applied. I don't know if this means the cream is working or that I am not suited to it. Time will tell. However, it has certainly not been a miracle cure within days as said on some reviews. Rough, darkened skin on my knees however has disappeared straight away with minimal application of the cream so not all is lost. Overall there is slight improvement of the bumpy skin but nothing amazing so far.

This was a book group choice and I have to say the best book read in book group for 2 years. Very funny throughout and an amazing central character. Really different from other reads. Recommend

Chain Reaction: Children and Divorce (Art therapies)
Chain Reaction: Children and Divorce (Art therapies)
by Ofra Ayalon
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars theory based, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a bit of a disappointment. I thought it would be crammed full of ideas for art therapy with pictures and examples of things to do. There is only a very small part like this. It is theory heavy and mostly written word so perfect for researching an essay but not so much for looking for exercises to do with kids.

This is a really clear and comprehensive look at the issues around divorce which can be read with children. Would recommend. Also have another book in this series 'When Dinosaurs Die' which is brilliant, for use with bereaved children.

3.0 out of 5 stars ear candles, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The candles are much cheaper than the bio-sun hopi candles so gave them a go. They seem to burn the same but found little evidence of wax inside some of the candles after finishing. Maybe that was just that the ears were not very blocked but when checking the kids' ears there was evidence of a little wax having been vapourised and drawn to the edge of the ear so have to say they must work. Will have a few more goes before final verdict but for the price I can't argue really. Prompt delivery too.
