Philips Satinelle BRE610/00 Advanced Wet and Dry Epilator
Philips Satinelle BRE610/00 Advanced Wet and Dry Epilator
Price: £59.06

4.0 out of 5 stars Does job as advertised, 28 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is certainly not for faint of heart. If you haven't used an epilator before it feels pretty much like pinpricks along your legs and stings.

This model seems to do a pretty good job of removing leg hairs. I had some flat lying hairs which is wear a thin layer of skin grows over them and regular shaving can't get them. But this certainly got rid of them.

The battery on this was not charged very much upon first use so didn't get Long use out of it.

After use I had quite a number of red spots where hairs had been plucked out. I used moisturiser on my legs and although there lessened didn't go away. So use a day or two b4 if you want to look your best for something.

Not sure if this is something I will use on regular basis but certainly useful to remove flat lying hairs. It also works in quite short hairs.


Accurist Men's Quartz Watch with Blue Dial Chronograph Display and Brown Leather Strap 7021.01
Accurist Men's Quartz Watch with Blue Dial Chronograph Display and Brown Leather Strap 7021.01
Price: £135.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic watch - stop-watch and day counter - straightforward!, 26 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This watch has a simple classic feel, with a leather strap. The strap fits my husband's wrist quite well and the watch feels secure. The crown is easy to use and so are the stop-watch functions - but I have only given it 4 stars because the middle dial at the bottom for seconds for this function has become very slightly misaligned, i.e. after resetting the counter it returns to a position just to the left of the topmost marker. Besides this minor thing it seems to keep time well and doesn't feel too heavy or cumbersome after about a days usage.


Levivo Silicone Ice Cube Tray for 8 Ice Cubes each approx. 5 x 5 x cm, Blue
Levivo Silicone Ice Cube Tray for 8 Ice Cubes each approx. 5 x 5 x cm, Blue

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi use, large ice cube tray., 11 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This product is as seen in picture and as described. The ice cubes it makes are huge. So you need some wide glasses. Although I think you could quite easily come up with other uses for the tray than just freezing water. Making baby meals and blending it for example.

It's non stick and easy to get ice cubes out. Washing is easy either by hand or dish washer.
The white ridge around the tray is solid so it's easy to carry and place in the freezer even when full with liquid. No fault to be found.


Breville VTT548 Vista 2 Slice Polished Stainless Steel Toaster, Silver
Breville VTT548 Vista 2 Slice Polished Stainless Steel Toaster, Silver
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value toaster., 11 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Am really happy with this toaster. Has a sleek design and the controls are clear and simple to use with some useful features.

You can warm up, defrost and interrupt cycle (see picture). The browning of toast is controlled by a clearly marked dial that clicks as you turn. Useful for visually impaired. The slots are wide able to take more than just toast. (See picture) Crumpets & muffins etc.

Toast comes out piping hot and you can use leaver to lift up slightly more to get it out easy. I really can't find any faults. Good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 9 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An awesome product. There is a very in depth description of this product on this page including a video which you should watch so I won't rehash all those details.

This product delivers on its description! Solid and clearly well made. Both muse and my husband who is gadget mad and a harsh critic loved it.
It is incredibly easy to use with Bluetooth. You just activate it in your phone and on the player and that's it. Away you go.

An added plus is that the battery life for the B&O PLAY shows up on your phone so it's easy to see if it needs recharging.

So far we have only used it to listen to music and with our iPhones. The sound quality is perfect and goes pretty loud. You would never bother having a sound system if you have this. You could certainly have a party with just this and your phone!

Only one thing my husband mentioned to me is that the charging cable is non standard. May possibly be difficult or expensive if need to replace but haven't looked in to it.


Salter Stainless Steel Electric Salt and Pepper Mills
Salter Stainless Steel Electric Salt and Pepper Mills
Price: £29.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall good., 7 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall a good product. They are rather on the large side and have a slight weight to them when using but it's no trouble to use one handed.
Easy enough to fill with arrow marks to clearly show you where pieces meet/come apart. Holds decent amount of Salt and pepper so you won't have to constantly refill. There is also a light (see pictures) where Salt/pepper comes out so you can see where it goes on your food? Quirky and maybe useful feature.

Only issue I had was that each Mill needs x4 AA batteries and although easy enough to put in are only held in place by a plastic tube that slides up and down. (See pictures) this seems a little flimsy considering price and how solid the Mills seem. Also I hope the battery doesn't get used up quickly as with x4 will be annoying to keep replacing. Time will tell.

Philips SatinShave BRL140/00 Wet and Dry Advanced Electric Ladyshave
Philips SatinShave BRL140/00 Wet and Dry Advanced Electric Ladyshave
Offered by Bundletime
Price: £39.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Was a bit disappointed with this product. It looks good and is comfortable in hand to use. So far I have only used in the shower with trimmer attachment and without. Comes with 2 other attachments I haven't used and little cleaning brush.

I normally shave every other day. So the hairs on my leg are not long. I found this practically useless for my regular shaving. A normal cheap throw away razor does a better job and I consider that easier to use as I don't have to charge it to use it. If your hair is dark am not sure the length this razor cuts would be good enough. Short hairs would be easily seen. My skin is also quite sensitive and short hairs rubbing against clothing irritate. You can feel the hairs very clearly after shaving still but with throw away I can't. This razor just wasn't for me.


Breville VKJ953 Vista Polished Stainless Steel Jug Kettle, 1.7 Litre, Silver
Breville VKJ953 Vista Polished Stainless Steel Jug Kettle, 1.7 Litre, Silver
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value & stylish, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall and quite happy with this kettle. You don't have to sacrifice looks due to cost at only £20 it isn't expensive. What you see in the pictures is what you get.

The lid pops open very easily for filling with water and quite wide. The on/off switch lights up when on so u can clearly see when it's ready on in use.
It does get very hot to touch but that's pretty standard with all kettles. The only real downside is the water gauge being under the handle making it a little harder to see. But this isn't major. Would recommend.

Bosch 10.8 V Professional Cordless Twin Kit (includes 2 x 2.0 Ah Lithium Ion Batteries)
Price: £134.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend, 29 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall a very good product. You get exactly what you see in the picture. No bit set but most professionals would have this already and this is designed with them in mind rather than casual DIYer. It comes in a tough looking case (see picture) that can be clipped to other cases in the range creating a tower which professionals can move around easily.

The Drill is quite powerful and is more than good enough to use on jobs around the house which is what we have so far used it for. I don't think we are getting the best out of it as I think it is more for the professional.


Playmobil 6130 Country Farm Large Tractor
Playmobil 6130 Country Farm Large Tractor
Price: £22.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun tractor, 28 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This tractor is very well designed and comes in a reusable box. The assembly takes a few minutes but needs adult supervision, the tires are very tricky to assemble and the instructions aren't as good comparatively as Lego provides, for example.

The playability is very high, with a very strong construction and it comes with a set of stickers that add the detail around the headlights, etc. Overall a really nice toy.
