Ultrasport Women's Seamless Thermo Base Layer - Black, M/L
Ultrasport Women's Seamless Thermo Base Layer - Black, M/L

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, comfy baselayer, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The baselayer fitted very well - tight and warm, but not uncomfortable, and the lack of seams added to this. The quick dry function meant that sweat was not an issue, and the set not being a one piece means you can use the top on its own if needed.

Great product

5.0 out of 5 stars Best headphones I've ever had., 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones are superb!

I have owned many headphones in the past, but there are without doubt the best I have ever owned. They are solidly made, have a good weight to them - heavy byt not overly so and more importantly the sound quality of them is amazing - rich, well balanced, loud and clear; the muffs are VERY comfortable on the years during long plays, and the adjustment on the headband locks well in to position and is easy to move too. The Headband also folds down easly making them perfect to pack away in a day bag / handbag / backpack / suitcase allowing you to take them pretty much anywhere. The sound contol for the headphones has also been placed up high by the right earphone, making sound adjustment easier as the location is contant - no more looking halfway down the lead to adjust the sound. They also come in a very nice and sturdy carrier case.

Overall - superb


Braun Silk Epil 9 9-558 Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator with 5 Extras
Braun Silk Epil 9 9-558 Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator with 5 Extras
Price: £104.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great product!, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this product for my friend and so far she likes it.

The epilator itself is well built, solidy and sturdy, and the heads are easy to change - plus the desgin of them has meant that there has been no nicks or cuts when using it. This has been the case with the "main" epilator and the facial epilator too, although this has been more painful to use. The heads are easy to change and In terms of cleaning the wet one, you simply remove the heads and just run it under the tap. Although you prefer to clean it dry, it does come with a cleaning brush. It also holds its charge well too. The different settings means you can also change the intesnity depending on where your shaving.

All in all a good product and well worth getting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality dry weather walking shoe, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for a friend who does a lot of walking and she was really happy with them. The fit was spot on, she loved the desgin ( mountain stylish (subtle) with a femenine touch) and the grip on the undersoles was very good indeed. The laces were qood quality and locked in to position well too with the metal lace clips.

In regards to actual performance, they were comfortable to walk in, and offered good foot support over rocky ground. However, they are not fully warterproof - its says weatherlie on the description - and after walking through some damp long grass (of about 100 metrers) they became saturated quite quickly, which while expected, was slightly disapointing in that they did not keep the wet off for longer than 1 min (or about 10 meters).

Overall, a very good quality walking shoe for dry to lightly damp terrain, best used in the summer months


Igenix IG3002 2 Slice Toaster in Black with Six Position Variable Control, 750 Watt
Igenix IG3002 2 Slice Toaster in Black with Six Position Variable Control, 750 Watt
Price: £14.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A great budget toaster, 7 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toaster is a solid, efficent appliance that offers good quality for a low price.

The toaster itself is very easy to operate with clear dials, and a slide out crumb tray that's easy to remove. There are a total of 6 different toasting options available, and the unit itself is very light - making it easy to move around. The performance of the toaster is also impressive it, toasts bread quickly and consistently providing a good toasting experience

The only problem I have with this toaster is that a big slice of thick bread does not fit 100% in to the grill for toasting - the tops of the bread stick out, (however this is the case with most budget toasters) but 90% of the slice fits in well enough. Also, the chorome pastic effect is easy to scratch and smudge - making it look slightly worn even when new.

Overall, this is a great budget toaster and I would well reccomend it


Oral B Pro 3000 White and Clean Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
Oral B Pro 3000 White and Clean Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
Price: £44.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great, no frils oral b toothbrush, 25 Feb. 2015
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

This toothbrush is simple and straight forward to use - it has an "on/off" button that's easy to operate and that'stimer, and the settings for The different 3d brush effects are easy to use too. The power indicator at the bottom of the brush is easy to see and clearly shows when the battery is running low. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars das ist sehr gut, 25 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having used this poroduct for the past few weeks I have been quite impressed with the easy of use and high quality of the course offered. The Grammar book is easy to follow, the dictioanry and phrasebook are useful aids to the audio learning and the headphone quality, while not spectacular is certainly very efficient and comy on the ears. The course itself is easy to follow and "staged", so you can adjust your learning experience and intensity to suit your needs.

Very impressed

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a poitnless product, 25 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't really get this product.

I thought it was a "washing powder" booster to kill germs, but its not - you have to soak the clothes in the powder beforehand and THEN wash it. It will not work effectively mixed in with washing power, and obviously it doesn't remove stains. Which makes me ask, what is its purpose, apart from adding a seemingly unneccassary step in your washing cycle?

Having used the product, I cannot also say 100% if indeed it kill extra germs and bacteria, as the clothes seemed the same to me after any other normal wash.

As I mentioned, I'm not sure why this product exists let alone why anyone would buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product!, 31 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This of 1.4 litre Vanish Gold Oxi action is very good value for money.

I have used this product on a number of items, including clothes, table clothes, even curtains and everytime it never seems to fail. It is great at removing the toughest of stains, and does not discolour or bleach the clothes at all. The Gold oxi action has even manged to get stubborn, deep, mud stains out of white rugby shirts and shorts on 1/2 washes, and grass out of cricket whites too.

A great product!!

2.0 out of 5 stars A 2.5 hr charge for 5 min flying time!, 3 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Revell Multicopter Hexatron (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this for my myself and my niece to have some fun with, unfortunatley this product did not allow that.

While this Multicopter was easy to control (and pretty responsive) I had concerns regarding the foam material its made from - VERY light, far too easy to damage, and even a slight crosswind flips it - and the battery life is attrocious. A 2.5 hour charge of the main copter via the included AC cable resulted in only 5min flying time before the "low battery" lights started showing. Couple that with the 8 AA batteries needed for the remote control and overall you had 2 pretty suprised and disapointed people. A second battery for the copter COULD be an option, but the extra £15-20 for said battery would only double the time to around 10 min, and is not really worth it after already apying out around £100 for the copter itself.

I can't really recommend this product - its to easy to damage, and despite it being 2015, it has the battery life of a mid to late 1980s remote control car

Poor.
