100ml Sensual and Aphrodisiac Massage Oil
100ml Sensual and Aphrodisiac Massage Oil
Offered by Naissance
Price: £4.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Sets the mood and has a lovely scent!, 22 July 2014
We love this Massage oil. It's non sticky and is very easy to spread across skin and is absorbed into the skin within a few minutes. It has a very pleasing smell and certainly heightens the mood prior to sex. We take it in turns to massage each other and have to say it does add to the fun.

It's not cheap but would certainly recommend to those wanting to use such a product on special occasions. Thumbs Up

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Charging the PS4 controller while playing at the same time!, 20 July 2014
This is ideal so i can now play with my PS4 controller and charge it at the same time. The cable that the console comes with is pathetically short so this fitted the bill perfectly at 3m in length. The quality of the cable is pretty good and the connectors feel solid when they are plugged in. Would Definitely recommend if you want a longer cable!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The stains really have gone!, 18 July 2014
This stuff is fantastic. We simply fill the plastic cup inside the tub with powder and place it in the bottom of the sink and then fill the sink with very warm water. We leave the clothes that are stained to soak for an hour, after which we repeat the process again if any of the stain is left.

Once the stain has gone we do a regular wash in the washing machine using our normal detergent. If you are planning to use this in the detergent part of a washing machine, we have found it works best when using liquid detergent for some reason. When we initially used it with powder detergent it seemed to have little effect on stains but in conjunction with liquid detergent the results are better!

Verdict: We are very impressed by the cleaning ability this powder has at removing stubborn stains, red wine being the main culprit in our house although we have tested it on beetroot juice and found it worked just as well, Leaving clothes to soak in the sink does seem to product better results but it does a great job in a washing machine for most "moderate" stains

5.0 out of 5 stars TP-Link PA2030 Powerline Kit Review!, 18 July 2014
It seems Amazon has lumped all the reviews of the different variations of this product together, just so you know my review is based on the twin pack 200mbps adapters with 3 ports "TL-PA2030KIT".

If you want a wired internet connection to a PC, games console or another device but your Router is in a different room then "powerline adapters" are the way to go. They use the electrical wiring system in your house as data cables to send and receive data. The key thing to understand is that for them to work, they must all be on the same fuse box, what i mean by that is if one floor in your house works off a different fuse box than the other, then they won't be able to work across different floors. If your house has 1 Fuse box that covers the whole house then you won't have a problem!!

These by TP-Link are fantastic and are rated up to 200mbps (that's megabits not megabytes). For 99% of people that should be more than sufficient for most things including gaming (you can game off 75mbps quite easily although these will allow for a better bandwidth).

These units are quite small and compact and each features 3 ethernet ports so you can connect up to 3 devices at each end. I myself have my PC, PS4 and TV connected at the same time. You simply plug both adapters in and turn them on and if they don't auto pair then simply press the pair button on one and then go and press the same button on the other and they will sync together. Security wise once connected they are protected by a 128-bit AES Encryption.

There are three lights on the adapters, the top one identifies that the unit is getting power, the second is to show that it has connected to the other adapter and the bottom light shows data is being sent and received. Inside the box besides the two adapters you get 2x 2m ethernet cables, a instruction book and a CD for use with a PC if you are having difficulty in setting it up although i didn't need to use the disk and doubt you will either.

It is important to also note that the adapter i connected my three devices up to does get on the warm side after a few hours of use but it never gets hot, just ensure it's going in a well ventilated area. It's also worth noting that you can connect additional adapters up and have different rooms connected at the same time.

VERDICT: These powerline adapters create a stable wired connection using your existing electrical wiring, provided you don't live in an old house with "dodgy" wiring then you shouldn't have a problem. Range wise they work up to 300m so most houses should be covered. I'll simply finish by saying this, if at present you are using wireless and are sick of the constant drop outs and disconnects or if you are a gamer and sick of the "lag" that you can get due to your connection, try using these and you should find most of your connection problems will be resolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hotpoint 10kg Washing Machine Review!, 17 July 2014
When our old Whirlpool Washing Machine started to leak due to a weld giving way after 17 long years of service we decided to start researching Washing Machines. Our old one had a standard 7kg drum but this time we wanted a larger drum yet at the same time we wanted a machine that fitted into a standard opening. This particular one by Hotpoint will fit into a standard washing machine opening and has a 10kg drum which is massive. It's cold fill only and the exhaust pipe can be fitted like all modern washing machines to the pipework under a sink. It has a maximum spin speed of 1600rpm and maximum 90*c temperature setting.

The door opening is 13 inches across and makes it easier to load and remove washing. The door itself feels very sturdy with a good quality rubber seal and the locking mechanism and handle also feel quality. On the top left of the machine is the detergent draw which swings open rather than pulling out and it does actually make it easier to pour liquid detergent, the draw feels sturdy in construction and is easy to understand what goes where.

Control Panel wise there is a screen which tells you what program you have selected and it also tells you the estimated time left, spin speed for that program and indeed the temperature of that program too. You can override the spin speed and temperature for every program available although the default settings are the maximum i.e. if you select cotton wash at 40*c and it says the spin speed will be 1400rpm by default then you can't increase it to 1600rpm, only lower it.

There are various settings available with everything from cotton, synthetic, wool, delicates, bedding and indeed a steam refresh besides many more and everything is easy to select thanks to the button wheel at the top, simply match the button up to the images on the detergent door and like i said earlier you can modify each program as you wish.

Our favourite setting is the "Fast Wash" program as we can wash both cotton and synthetic stuff together (naturally we separate out very light and dark stuff). You can either have a 30 minute or 60 minute wash. We select the 60 minute wash and then lower the temperature from 60*c to 40*c but leave the spin speed at 1600rpm (also keep in mind that modifying programs will change the estimated time the program will take). No joke within an hour everything came out clean and fresh and thanks to the higher spin speed everything was slightly damp rather than wet as everything was in our old machine.

Now the machine is rated A+++ which as i understand it is the best energy rating a washing machine can get and as for noise it runs quite quiet, even at 1600rpm i would say it's not too loud and is certainly quieter than what machines were like years ago. The machine comes with a 12 month warranty but if you phone Hotpoint up and register the machine then you do get a 5 year parts guarantee added on.

Verdict: we are very happy with this new machine and it puts our old one to shame in every area. The build quality is impressive and it uses a "Titanium" drum and everything is easy to understand. We particularly like the fact we can now wash duvets and bedspreads in the machine thanks to a bigger drum. Overall very impressed with the cleaning ability, easy of use and quality.

We are very happy in RECOMMENDING this washing machine. Please feel free to ask us questions regarding this machine and we'll be happy to answer from an owners point of view!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I like a mixture not an emulsion" ..A great read by Guy!!, 10 July 2014
Guy is a decent chap who i was fortunate to meet at the Isle of Man TT back in 2010. I'll never forget him telling me his mug of tea had to be a mixture and not an emulsion, ha. This book really is a great read with lots of racing detail and also good background info on Guys life so far. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and recommend it to anyone who is a Guy Martin fan or a general supporter of the TT and bike racing in general. Of all the people that go to the Isle of Man each year to take part i really do wish Guy the best of luck and hopefully getting a victory in the Senior race before too long!!

A Recommended Read!


Astonish Stainless Steel Cleaner Trigger 500ml

4.0 out of 5 stars Astonish Stainless Steel cleaner, 10 July 2014
We have a stainless steel kitchen sink and kettle, water marks and tea stains are one of the worst things you can get on such items. Made worse in our case thanks to the hard water which also leave lime scale marks too. Well this cleaner is perfect for keeping the sink and kettle as clean as the day we bought them, normal kitchen cleaners designed for cutting through grease simply won't budge stubborn marks on stainless steel and that's why you will require a purpose cleaner.

With this one by Astonish simply spray a small amount directly onto the sink/kettle or whatever stainless steel surface you are cleaning and leave to work for a few seconds then use a soft brush to agitate the surface. The cleaner should remove those stubborn stains and when you wipe the residue away you should be left with a clean and shiny surface. The key is to keep using this on a daily basis and don't let the problem get to a level where it becomes a pain to remove. I now use this each evening on the sink and it's 10x easier to remove stuff.

Verdict: This is a good stainless steel cleaner and the nozzle is spot on, It's not cheap but if you are looking for a stainless steel cleaner then this would be one i recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus 24 Inch LED Widescreen Monitor Review!, 8 July 2014
24 inches in my view is the optimum size for a computer monitor, if you have the space that is! I now own two of these and the quality really is impressive. It features LED technology so the image quality is super bright and clarity is faultless and because it's LED based it uses very little power over the course of the day. It's ideal especially for gamers as the response time is rated at 2ms which is very impressive and of course the screen can display in full HD (1920x1080p).

The screen can be tilted upwards to suit as many locations as possible. Construction wise it feels very sturdy and the base doesn't feel like it can be knocked over easily. All the buttons you require are located on the bottom right and at the back you have Power, HDMI, DVI and VGA ports. They include both DVI and VGA cables in the box so you can use it straight of of the box.

Other things worth nothing are that this screen does have a built in speaker, it's not fantastic but is pretty impressive for a display of this size and price.

Verdict: If you're looking for a new computer monitor then i would certainly recommend this one to you. It feels well made and the image quality is second to none being in glorious 1080p. When you factor in that it has a speaker and can be tilted i have nothing negative to say about it. The fact it includes a 3 year guarantee makes the price even better in my view!

RECOMMENDED!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite knickers, 8 July 2014
I love the low rise nature of these and the intricate detailing on the front really does give it a sexy look along with an impression of quality. I have three of these in different colours and by far my favourite is the Burgundy one, the colour and lace pattern combination really is nice. Be warned as others have said, the lace detailing is very delicate so wash either by hand or on a low spin/heat cycle in the washing machine as the lace can start to distort. I'm size 8 and the size 8 fitted me perfectly. The back is plain with no lace detailing apart from the edging. I do like the concealed waistband around the front with is about an inch in depth and cannot be noticed unless you knew it was there. Overall i really like these and they are very comfy to wear over the course of the day, just be careful when washing, aside from that these get the thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Moon bleaching cream Review!, 8 July 2014
An all natural bleaching cream which can be used in intimate areas on your body including around the anus. It certainly does help improve the appearance of that area to have all the skin a more uniform and natural colour, it says for men but my girlfriend uses it and it works just the same. Very easy to apply and is absorbed into the skin within a few minutes, apply a small amount once or twice a day until you get the desired effect which can take up to two weeks. It doesn't sting or smart but the area of skin you apply it to can become sensitive if you over use it so stick to what it says on the bottle.

Verdict: Provides good results even if it may take longer than i wanted to but at least it worked. My one piece of advise is to wash/bath or shower as normal as it doesn't require you do stay dry for days on end. Just don't go expecting fast results as it will take time but i'm sure you'll be happy with the results. My one negative point is i do think it's on the expensive side for the amount you get but then again given it uses natural ingredients the price is probably justifiable!

RECOMMENDED!
