Tourte Violin Mute
Tourte Violin Mute
Offered by Omega Music (UK) Ltd
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and cheap mute., 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tourte Violin Mute (Electronics)
These Stentor mutes are fantastic. The only slight problem is that they have a tendency to slide up towards the bridge when not in use, which results in a rattle, but as they are so easy to put on and off, they can easily be removed when not needed.


V-MODA XS Metal Noise Isolating On Ear Headphones - White/Silver
V-MODA XS Metal Noise Isolating On Ear Headphones - White/Silver
Price: £170.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly built yet comfortable to wear, 11 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones are fantastic! The build quality is outstanding and they feel exceedingly solid. More importantly, unlike other headphones I have tried they don't feel like they'd easily break. However, whilst of solid construction, they are possibly the lightest and most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. I'm no expert on sound-quality, but the sound delivered was as good as others I have tried in this price bracket.


Bosch Ironing Board, White/Blue
Bosch Ironing Board, White/Blue
Price: £67.32

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and well-built, 4 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bosch is a name synonymous with quality - I have a number of their products (including a dishwasher) and they last and last. This product is no different. Sturdy and well-built, it is by far the largest ironing board I have ever used, although it is not big as to be unwieldy (unless the user is particularly elderly and frail). Its wider and longer size makes it far easier to iron larger items of cloths, and the resting plate at the end is large enough to fit one of the newer style steam generator irons. Overall, I'd say it is well worth every penny; it has even made my ironing-obsessed mother envious!


FUTURO 48579EN Adjustable Sport Hinged Knee Brace
FUTURO 48579EN Adjustable Sport Hinged Knee Brace
Price: £34.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely supportive knee brace - comfortable soft neoprene but very rigid!, 14 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a comfortable, supportive knee brace which provides a brilliant amount of stability.

It's relatively easy to get into, although with Velcro straps on the front and back both top and bottom and Velcro on the neoprene both top and bottom, it can be a bit of a Velcro-tangle on putting it on!

My only gripe with the brace is that on my leg, once the bottom part of neoprene is adjusted to fit, the Velcro strap which secures around the outside (which doubles back on itself through a plastic loop) is so long that it overshoots the available Velcro! I don't have massive legs, but they're not that skinny either; I would consider them pretty average so this seems a bit of a shame.

Overall though, it's a comfy brace and there is quite a lot of security of fit even when this strap is loose. It remains really rigid, but is very comfortable rough walking and running.


Medisana Connect Body Analysis Scales with Bluetooth
Medisana Connect Body Analysis Scales with Bluetooth
Price: £65.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and nice to have all the info tracked in a convenient app!, 14 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These scales are very easy to use, and pair easily with the iPhone app.

They provide readings for weight, body fat %, body muscle %, body water % and bone mass. They also calculate your BMI and rate each of these scores compared to the average bandings for your sex, age etc. They are not as sophisticated as a previous set of body composition scales I've owned which also gave readings for visceral fat and base metabolic rate which are nice additional readings to have, however the convenience of this tracking everything for you easily in an app is a big advantage!

They are a really nicely made set of scales, made from good quality feeling materials.


JESSICA Phenom Gift Set, JESSICA Red

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product from a premium brand, 30 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use the Jessica ranges professionally in my salon, so I am slightly biased! Jessica is well-renowned for the quality of their products, which is why it used in spas and salons across the country, and Phenom certainly doesn't disappoint. Phenom is perfect for people who have difficulty in getting longevity out of normal polish, for whilst its not as hardwearing as their professional GELeration range, its certainly a good home alternative. It also dries slightly quicker than normal polish; Phenom is dry in about 10 minutes, as opposed to traditional polish, which takes up to 20 minutes to be properly dry. As would be expected from a premium brand polish, the colour coverage is fantastic. Unlike the wishy-washy and streaky coverage you get with cheaper brands, with just two coats you get a good solid layer of colour. Moreover, the colour stays glossy for much longer than traditional polishes, which means that it always looks as though its just been painted.

My only slight criticism would be the lack of instruction on application, for whilst those who are au fait with polish know to use base coat, then two coats of colour, then a top coat, there are some people out there who don't, and so won't get the results promised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use and easily connects to your smart phone for results tracking., 14 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This BP monitor gives an exceedingly quick result. I have used other much cheaper home BP monitors and they seem to take ages to fully inflate the cuff. This is sold with a quick result feature and it's no lie!

The monitor comes with batteries so you can use it straight out of the box. I initially thought they'd only given 2 batteries when it takes 4 but they were simply tucked right inside the arm cuff so make sure you fully check the whole contents of the box before going to the kitchen drawer to find more!

The unit is easy to power up, but make sure you follow the instructions to set the date and time or it will not connect to the app on your phone. It is slightly annoying that when scrolling through the dates and times you can only run upwards through the numbers so if you miss the one you want you have to go all the way round again!

It gives a quick result, and as long as you have done the necessary download, registration and setup of the app, you simply add the device and it will send the BP results to your app so that you can track your results over a period of time. There is also the facility to have guest results.

The cuff is very generously sized and would fit a reasonably large upper arm. Again - better than cheaper BP monitors I have used which often skimp on the cuff. The unit comes with a useful carry case.


Ferplast Kuna 50 Cat Bed, Grey
Ferplast Kuna 50 Cat Bed, Grey
Price: £37.44

4.0 out of 5 stars A high quality cat bed, but only suitable for a tiny dog, not a small dog as the description says!, 12 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We got this for our small dog as the description said it was suitable for cats and small dogs. It would have to be a very small dog! We have a small terrier and she's too big for it. Ours neighbour's cat, however, loves it!

It's a very high quality item - nicely made and the materials feel of very good quality. The cushion is reversible and the fabric colour of both sides is very nice - quite neutral and modern.

There are no instructions, but it was easy to work out that the cushion pad hooks underneath either side with the small loops sewn into either end. There are small anti-slip rubber feet included which you peel off and stick on.


CAILLER L'Art Du Brut Milk Chocolate with Whole Almonds Hazelnuts and Raisins (Pack of 2)
CAILLER L'Art Du Brut Milk Chocolate with Whole Almonds Hazelnuts and Raisins (Pack of 2)
Price: £11.00

5.0 out of 5 stars This is very nice, creamy, 12 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is very nice, creamy, melt-in-the-mouth milk chocolate.

It is very nicely packaged and definitely feels like a premium quality chocolate bar and worthy of its price.

It is also delightful to look at - the way the fruit and nuts show through the surface of each piece makes it look like they have been individually placed and poured! The only thing I would say is that sometimes the whole almonds take over the chunk of chocolate, but this is a minor gripe over what is a delightful treat!


Ultrasport Camping Cabinet - Universal Folding Cabinet, 3 Compartments and Work Surface incl. Storage Bag
Ultrasport Camping Cabinet - Universal Folding Cabinet, 3 Compartments and Work Surface incl. Storage Bag
Price: £61.80

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent addition to your camping furniture!, 11 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a brilliant addition to my camping armoury!

It's exceedingly well made - everything feels very solid. There were no instructions as to how to unfold it and get it together, but it is pretty self explanatory. My only initial panic was that the bottom straps didn't seem like they were going to come together and Velcro up without stretching something further than it should go. As it turns out, there is Velcro on the bottom corners of the cabinet which undoes to allow easier folding up and packing away. When you know about these corner bits and pull them out before assembling he bottom straps go together easily.

The shelves and top are nice and sturdy and although I've not yet pressed it into use, it is much sturdier than other camping furniture I have had in the past.
