Ultrasport Downhill Ski Socks black/grey Size:44 - 47
Ultrasport Downhill Ski Socks black/grey Size:44 - 47
Price: £19.95

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent pair of socks, 19 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These socks offer decent value for money.

The sizing of the socks is good - I'm a UK size 11 and these socks fit me very well, and ski socks they cover most of my shins as a rugby or footall sock would.

However, the good quality of these socks is let down somewhat by the thinness of the sock on the heel and toes.while these seem fine walking around in boots, I tried them out on a very long walk and found they did not protect me from discomfort after 20min, which makes me doubt how effective they will be when I use them for skiing in November.

Scandinavian Baking: Loving Baking at Home
Scandinavian Baking: Loving Baking at Home
by Trine Hahnemann
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £17.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovelly book!, 19 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this book to branch out my cooking skills and I'm very glad I did. The book is very well presented with easy to follow instructions, some stunning pictures and most importantly, some delicious recipies!

The text is eay to read and follow (not too small to follow while cooking!) and the step by step instructions makes it hard to go wrong whn cooking the recipes.

The main sections of the book are cakes & pastries, breads & savories and jams, along with sections on Christmas and midsummer. Each recipie has instructions along with a picture and the complex recipes also have more pictures and instructions showing you how to make them.

All in all this is a great book for those looking to improve thier bread and cake making skills, however those looking for savory baking may be slightly let down as a majority of this book concerns bread and dessert making recipies.


Graco Evo Pushchair 2014 Range (Khaki)
Graco Evo Pushchair 2014 Range (Khaki)
Price: £179.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb pushchair, 3 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been very impressed with this pushchair - its light, durable, easy to push, its well built, and suitable for babies from birth to 3 years old - Everthing you need in a good pushchair.

The chair itself was very easy and straight forward to assemble, and as each part "clicks" in to place, its pretty hard to get it wrong. Rotating the chair to be front facing or rear facing is also very easy, as is remvoing the chair itself from the frame to turn it in to a carry cot. The adjustable straps are easy to change the size and the safety clips all fit together well too - making this an easy product to use once assembled.

The basket under the chair provides a great deal of space and can easily hold a change bag, and some shopping, and even when full it does not seem to effect the steering / central weight of the chair when pushing it along - maintaining its very good manuverability.

An all this is a very well built pushchair that's light, easy to use and, with a freet winter foot muff included too, offers great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value bottle, 3 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This 900ml bottle offers great value for money.

The conditioner is very effective in keeping hair moist, especially after a "long - deep clean", and it does exactly what it says in the bottle. I have quite a sensative scalp, and this product has not upset my skin once.

All in all a great quailty product


Oral-B Trizone 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Trizone 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £34.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A great quality toothbrush, 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toothbrush is great - simple to use, it holds its charge well, and using the trizone brush heads, it really does do a good job of cleaning teeth

As I said, this toothbrush is simple and uncomplicated to use - it has an "on/off" button and that's it, no different brush settings, no timer, nothing. There is a power indicator to show when the battery is running low, but that's about it. The inter-changeable heads mean that you can use pretty much any oral-b electric toothbrush head and your not obliged to keep to the head that comes with this brush - meaning that you can use this brush to suit your "brushing style".

The brush is easy to handle - not too heavy and not too light and it has rubber gripping along the sides which helps you keep a good grip on the brush during cleaning. The heads are also very easy to change (simply pull them off) but they remain solid when connected to the brush and when its in use. The toothbrush also comes with a short "charge base" for the brush which means its easier to store.

The only gripe I have with this brush is the 12 hour charge time. However saying that a single charge should last you around a week, brushing twice daily, so it does hold the charge pretty well.

Overall this a solid brush and is excellent for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for stubble trimming and dry shaving, 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been really impressed with this shaver

Firstly, the shaver itself looks nice and feels well put together. In terms of performance, the box does say that maximum effect will take place after 4 uses, and to be honest I was not that impressed with the initial results, but having stuck with it and used up to ten times already, I can certainly say that the performance does indeed improve!

Perfomance is just as good wet as it is dry, and the shaver itself is very easy to clean after use. The shaver head does manage to get a good close shave done (after those first 4 uses!) and the stubble trimmer head leaves a fair but of stubble while cutting it neat and tidy - which is exactly what I wanted from this product. The heads themselves are also easy to change over - simply click and pull the head off then replace with the shaver head you need.

Overall a great shaver. It's safe, easy to use, It provides a good clean shave, and sstubble the trimmerdoes exactly what it should do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and brilliant at stapling large documents, 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This stapler has proven its worth over the last few days, and I'm very happy with it.

The stapler itself is very, very heavy and solid - its not likely to snap on you mid-job and it staples most documents very well. I have been using it to staple paper handouts that are 10 pages each and the stapler staples them first time. However for handouts 2/3 pages long the stapler if anything is a bit too powerfull and ends up binding them in a way that is not a secure as if they had been stapled with a "normal" stapler.

The stapler takes a range of different staple sizes too, which adds to its versatility - however so far I have only used staples that are 26/6 - the ones which come with the stapler itself.

Overall this is a very well built stapler that performs its job very, very well but is let down somewhat by its inability to staple small documents as well as it should

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality images, and very quiet too, 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this for the World cup and was very impressed.

The projector was very easy to set up, and connected to the sky+HD box with no problems what so ever. The picture quality on a flat wall was superb - and there was no drop off in regards to the quality of thre HD picture. The projector itself was very quiet when in use (especially compared to the ones I use in work) and while it did give off some heat after 3 hrs constant use, it was not extreme or a cause for any concern.

The 3d fuctionality of the projector is also very good - although I only used this once via a PS3 - and the quality of the 3d images was again impressive on a large, flat surface.

All in all a terrific product for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thick, Warm and does the job well, 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these golves for a recent ski trip and was very impressed with them.

The gloves have a pretty thick outer nylon / polyester shell and have an inner fleece layer, as a result kept my hands very warm and did not get wet inside. The adjustable strap on the writs also meant it was easy to adjust the gloves with them on, allowing me to take them off very easilly when I needed to. The fingertips also have rubber padding on them which alowed me to use a smart phone with them on hassle free - and even better, the rubber / velour pads did not start to wear off after a week (unlike other gloves like this I've had) which adds to the superb overall quality of the gloves.

All in all I was very impressed with these gloves, and will be using them again for quite some time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality bands that encourage creativity, 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for my 9 year old niece and they proved to be fantastic.

The quality of the bracelets were very good - durable, comfy and also reusable; so these are not a "one off, wear for a week" product. The quality on the velcro was also of a good quality.

The huge amount of stickers and glitter provided also resulted in lots of time being used for planning and consideration in regards to desgining the bracelets - which is the exact reason I got them. The process of sticking the glitter and glue on to the bracelets was also straight forward, and easily completed by my niece with minimal supervision by myself.

All in all a superb product that helps encourage the creative streak!
