4.0 out of 5 stars A nice product., 28 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is pleasant to use. I have sensitive skin, but the alcohol content seems to be low enough not to bother it - if you have very sensitive skin, be aware that there is alcohol in this product. I only use a little of the product on a cotton wool pad and wipe over the skin. It seems to be very effective in removing makeup, including mascara, and does leave the skin feeling soft and moisturised.

A nice product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for young children, 19 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great for young children, these are the wax crayons of my youth but cradles neatly in a plastic holder and without that overpowering wax crayon smell.I read somewhere that they are good for adults too, but I assume that means adults who are childlike in their colouring skills as these are large and quite clunky, suitable for colouring large tracts of paper.

The ability to wet and turn into water colour seems frankly redundant as that suggests a level of refinement I cannot imagine in a user of these. I'm going to give them to young children to use!


The Knowledge Red Wine
The Knowledge Red Wine
by Peter Grogan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars which is a bit of a disappointment.., 19 Aug. 2015
This review is from: The Knowledge Red Wine (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The one thing this handy little book does not do is tell you how to drink wine, how to taste, what to look for etc, which is a bit of a disappointment...

Nonetheless if you are starting out on getting to know red wine then this little book is a great place to start. Peter Grogan is clearly knowledgeable and shares that knowledge in a clear, uncluttered way. Each section is short, but provides enough information to get you going. Throughout the final "how to" section there are pages of Top 5 tips - how to buy wine, how to serve wine, top wines for keeping - these will be very useful, and as the book is small (A5 size) it could slip into a bag or a large pocket.

The rest of the book is a starter guide to grapes varieties, and the various grape producing regions. It is designed to cut through mystique and give the (new/newish) red wine drinker the tools and confidence to explore, to get beyond the known and to try new things.

Highly recommended.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have now upgraded all my apple gadgetry (ipad, iPhone, iPod) to current models so now need multiple lightning cables! I travel a lot and use all gadgets at home, work and on the move so extra cables are a must. I do not buy cheap non-certified ones as these inevitably fail fast and often can't charge the ipad properly. Apple-certified are the best compromise as Apple own are so expensive and the two types seem to last equally long.

Every home should have lots of these!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a nice shampoo, with a pleasant smell, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice shampoo, with a pleasant smell. It is quite liquid, which was a little unexpected, but it lathers up nicely. My hair does feel quite silky after use, and it styles well too. All in all a nice product.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this. If you travel a lot and for more than a night or so, you probably hate being away from the clean, sparkly feel that you get from your electric toothbrush. I always felt that the handheld brush either made my gums sore or didnt give me a clean feeling... anyway, this little marvel does the trick. The head is small but as it is sonic you do not need to scrub hard - just a firm pressure and let the brush do the work. It is quiet and efficient and very light weight, even with the battery installed.
This one is also easy on the eye!


Wahl Hot and Cold Gel Pack Massager
Wahl Hot and Cold Gel Pack Massager
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars but once in place it was quite comfortable and did not move, 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My husband has a problem with his shoulder - the rotator cuff muscles appear to be inflamed, causing soreness and some reduced movement.

He used the massager with the hot pack option - the pack heats in the microwave and then slips into a pocket, held in place with velcro. The pad then sits on the shoulder area, secured with the strap which velcros to the pack. The massager unit is located inside the pack.

My husband did find it gave relief but he did find the strap quite difficult to get into place (as he has restricted movement...) so I had to help him secure it, but once in place it was quite comfortable and did not move. The heat element certainly helped, but he did complain that he found the vibrator unit made an annoying noise. He put in earphones and listened to music to address that issue.

All in all, pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars then put a little make up on and blend away - a super, light and very even finish, 9 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasnt sure about this, but it works very well. Put under water and it grows, then put a little make up on and blend away - a super, light and very even finish.

the shape looks a little odd but really fits to the contours of the face.

I think everyone should have one in their make up kit!


Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Diffuser Dryer
Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Diffuser Dryer

Price: £49.64

4.0 out of 5 stars alongwith a cool button. The heat/speed can be varied through combination, 8 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The dryer comes with two speeds and two heats, alongwith a cool button. The heat/speed can be varied through combination, so this is pretty flexible.

I amnot really sure what the red lights are supposed to for... they appear at the head and dont provide much illumination. The nozzles - a standard focussing one and a diffuser are quite difficult to get in - it looks as they are supposed to screw in, but just need a hard push. The diffuser does not work with my hair and caused a little frizzing.

Notwithstanding these niggles, this is a powerful and impressive hair dryer which works well and is flexible. I didnt find it particularly heavy and it did the job well.

4.0 out of 5 stars with no instruction manual - easily located online, 6 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used a Braun Electric toothbrush for years. My husband and I have small mouths, with densely packed teeth, making flossing difficult and plaque control a challenge. My husband also tens to over brush - ie pus against the teeth too hard and for too long. I was sceptical about whether this toothbrush would offer a real improvement.

We have been using it for about a week and I have to say the improvement is clear, especially for my husband - he doesn't feel the need to press too hard - indeed the sonic vibration deters that behaviour, as does the warning additional vibration. Amazingly the plaque build up (he's due to have his annual check up and clean) has been noticeably reversed - almost gone in a week.

I too received a white box version, with no instruction manual - easily located online. Use is pretty intuitive though so no surprises when I read it!

Gripes:
1. only one head in the pack, so had to buy extra ones for our two people family
2. the charger light has, apparently a yellow and green indication (needs charging/fully charged)... cant tell the difference!!

All in all, if you can afford it, then it is worth the investment!
