3.0 out of 5 stars One major flaw with these, 16 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think I may have seen these or something similar in the past but did not buy because they did not have pointers. When I saw these with pointers (the little arrows) I thought they were just what I was looking for. A magnetic bookmark which also lets you mark exactly which page and what paragraph your up to like ones I've had in the past. Although the design and magnetic fuctions is great there is one major flaw which makes them kind of pointless. The arrow to mark the page is on both sides of the bookmark! There is no way to know which page side you marked so they may as well have not bothered with the pointers. Something as simple as this could have been spotted by testing the product on just one book reader.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT Warrior Blend!, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When the package arrived i was confused by the different packaging to the photo. I then noticed this was NOT Sunwarrior's "Warrior Blend"as stated in the title above but Sunwarrior Protien. This is their standard brown rice protien powder. There is no blend of anything else. Warrior Blend uses hemp and pea protien along with other ingredients as shown in the misleading photo above.

It could have been a mistake but see the words warrior protein on a bar code sticker on the back. I decided not to send it back and justvtry this one. It tasted nowhere near as good as Warrior Blend. Its grainy, does not blend and feels like you have sand in your drink! I dont get how Amazon is selling things incorrectly advertised... Someone should check supplied items.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just be aware, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very disapointed with this purchase and decided to return it. When the singing bowl arrived it was very different from the photos. The mantra round the side was the same but instead of the double vajra with yin yang symbol inside it had the victory banner motif. The design in the photos of the underside was also different. To top it off the wooden stick was plain and did not have the beautiful carved lotus bud as shown.

All these details were why id chosen this bowl over others. I thought id been sent the wrong bowl but then i relooked at the box it came in which just says its a black singing bowl. I realised when i reread the details they are covered because it said as its handmade, designs may vary. So i think its random which is really deceptive considering all the photos uploaded are all of one design when they could have shown the variety to make it clear. The stick i also think is very cheeky. Use a really nice one in the photos put a standard one in the box. I hope Amazon is not turning into ebay...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made looks hand made and finished with a proper glaze. The dish catches ash better than all other upright incense holders ive tried but wont catch it always if you use long sticks. The hole will take anything from Japanese to Tibetan sticks which is a huge plus. The sticks will go out when the ember gets to the hole. If thiner sticks do get a bit stuck just push them out from underneith with a toothpick or something.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photos with enough space to write short notes on ..., 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful photos with enough space to write short notes on the days. The additional notes section is very helpful. Please note though that the photo here shows symbols and small illustrations on certain dates whuch are not actually in the calendar. Lunar phase is in a short list which means i had to add full and new moons in myself. On the plus it at least gave European moon phase dates unlike most calendars on the market which give only US dates.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this really Santalum Album?, 10 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im really not sure about this one. I own the raw material Sandalwood (Santalum Album) as well as a fragrance made from genuine Indian Sandalwood plus natural incenses from Tibet. Although the scent can vary especially if harvested from young or mature trees, Sandalwood is a very distinct powdery, creamy woodsy scent which which has been used in incense for thousands of years. This oil smells very much like my Cedarwood essential oil, I would never have guessed such an aromatic wood as Sandalwood would smell so generic as an essential oil. I used it in my oil burner hoping the smell would change but no, only a faint 'wood' smell. I cant be sure as ive not used Sandalwood essential oil before but it makes no sense that the essetial oil would smell like this or it would not be used by the perfume industry.

As Amazon is selling this I assume the oil is genuine. I really hope that Healthaid have checked their sources for this wood, sandalwood is golden in colour and its scent is unmistakeable. Many woods are sold these days as 'sandalwood' are in fact other woods. I will now look to try another brand for comparison and may have to spend alot more by the looks of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box is top quality, very well carved and the photo does not do it justice. The box is well made and hinges work fine, its secure when closed. I got this for my Smith-Waite Centennial deck but it also takes the Tarot Illuminati, Shadowscapes Tarot, Fenestra Tarot and the Legacy of the Divine Tarot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic yet Little known Smith Waite Tarot Deck, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for an antique reproduction Rider Waite Smith Tarot deck and this is the best ive found. Most people in the UK seem to go for the so called 'Original Rider Waite' which although it does have nice faded colours also has a few things I dont like such as all the blues have turned to green from light exposure and many of the faces are red, blotchy or look redrawn? Look carefully at the Fool card compaired to the illustration in Waite's own Pictorial Key to the Tarot book and you will see what I mean. I can only assume that deck is more popular here because its the only version you see in shops in the UK these days. I think the publishers should change the front cover, although the additional cards with Pamela's artwork are a great addition I think it would be best placed on the back of the box so people know this is the iconic Smith Waite Tarot deck. I discovered that the Centennial edition deck is much preffered by Tarot collectors and readers outside the UK and now I understand why.

This deck has a much better range of colours which give a better idea of the original artwork as painted by Pamela. The faces are clear and in keeping with the artists style. The artwork has crisper black lines and unlike other reproduction decks the borders are not stark white but keep the off white vintage look all the way to the edges. Ive compaired this deck with other Rider Waite versions and I noticed that this one has more of the image on each card which says to me that this is a more authentic deck. See the King of Cups for a clear example of this, we now see the full fish in the sea. The card is semi matt and the deck is printed on nice thick card stock. I feel like im stepping back in time when I read with this deck, so beautiful and magical. If your looking for a high quality antique looking deck with muted colours, plenty of symbolic detail and countless books that work with the symbolism this could be the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality modern Lenormand Deck, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was blown away when I got these cards. At last a Lenormand deck that is printed on high quality card, gilded and comes in a sturdy box to keep them safe. The artwork by Ciro keeps getting better, these are such vibrant and magical images which really bring the Lenormand to life but without making it to modern that it loses anything. As someone who was lucky enough to get the original limited edition deck before it was published I do think it would have been nice to at least give us an extra man and woman card for questions concerning someone of the same sex. This was in the original deck. This deck has raised the bar for Lenormand artists as this system continues to grow in popularity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 27 May 2014

Well made hardback journal, the pages do actually lay flat unline some notebooks. The cover is embossed and highlighted with gold, it does look like an old book at first. I would have preffered the pages to have been a bit thicker but they are okay.
