4.0 out of 5 stars STURDILY MADE, RESILIENT, AND A NICE 'GIVE', 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
arrived yesterday - and it's impressive... definitely not a toy! i tried out a few moves, and very quickly realised that jumping was out of the question in my present state of unfit-ness: i'm in my sixties, and a fibromyalgia sufferer. however, gentle bunny hops, and bounce-running on the spot, were fine - and the mat is *just* the right degree of resistance-to-softness. it doesn't hurt my joints at all - but i was amazed at how much even gentle bouncing uses the core muscles (as well as leg muscles etc) and how quickly (within half a minute) i tired. i'm going to take it slowly, and over the weeks, i hope, i shall graduate to doing some real workouts; at the moment, much as i'm tempted to overdo it, i'm being very cautious. (other fibro sufferers will know, if you overdo physical exercise, the payback is protracted and painful!) until i've had more experience on it, i'm giving it four stars; might upgrade it later.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVELY STUFF!, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
just gorgeous! it has a faint but lovely citrus smell, washes off very cleanly, and if the last bottle i bought is anything to go by - lasts for months and months. i even used it on my hair, and it was fine. i wouldn't hesitate to use this on ageing skin: it's so gentle.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT HOW IT USED TO BE, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vicks VapoRub 50g (Personal Care)
doesn't smell the way it used to, when i was a child. it certainly doesn't smell of camphor or menthol. also, on the side of the pot it has a whole list of ingredients with Indian names, and says something about being Ayurvedic medicine. ?? shan't buy it again - it's so unlike the Vicks ointment of old that i wonder if these people just bought the brand name?

5.0 out of 5 stars EVEN WORKS TO DETER MICE!, 27 Dec. 2014
i bought one, and am now ordering three more. they're good! no heat given off at all - a safety factor to bear in mind. they're nice and bright. if you put one where the available light is low, it will switch on - this isn't a fault: it's what's meant to happen. if you want the sensor to work properly (i.e. turn itself off, in the daytime) then put the night light in a part of the room which gets plenty of daylight; otherwise it will stay on, in dim surroundings. extra benefit: i'm using mine as a mouse deterrent - i think mice prefer to operate in the dark!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT CERTAINLY WORKS, 25 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i really hate poisoning mice, but have to protect the electrics. this product really works. i placed a sachet in a very small cardboard box, with a little hole cut out for the mouse to enter, and within ten days or so there was the unmistakeable smell of decomposing mouse... so (using gloves) i retrieved the box, with dead mouse inside, and put it in a bag for disposal. i wouldn't advocate putting these sachets anywhere where pets can investigate them. i have chucked a whole lot around in the loft (inaccessible to my pets) and trust they'll be as effective as the sachet-in-a-box was. note: the smell goes after a week or two, even when you don't remove the bodies. *ugh*

4.0 out of 5 stars falling short by 4 centimetres..., 20 Nov. 2014

nice quality memory foam, and delivered promptly - but, be warned, it measures 72cm X 60cm, NOT 76cm X 60cm, as the spec. states.

2.0 out of 5 stars SO BORING!, 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i read the book years ago, and liked it - but this dramatisation was so, so boring - and mannered and slow and really didn't do justice to the book, despite having lovely Bill Nighy.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely slippers, 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
arrived today - and i've had them on ever since! the fit is a little snug, but i'm sure they'll stretch: there's no tight stitching in uncomfortable places. really warm! i do wish they wouldn't put their *stupid* little labels right inside the shoe, where they can't be read - so what's the point?!! - but they rub uncomfortably against the side of the foot. however, did a labelectomy and snipped them out - by touch. the sole is slightly unyielding (i'm used to the 'give' of trainers) but ok for indoors: i wouldn't care to go walking in them, though - not that they're designed for that. good insulation against the cold stone floors we have here, and all in all a really nice, and good looking, slipper.


Weleda Sage Deodorant 30ml

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely - I bought this sage deodorant instead of my usual citrus one, as the last Weleda citrus deodorant I bought smelt perfectly awful (and is now doing time as a toilet blaster). This has a delicate sagey scent - which disappears completely in a short time, leaving one deodorised and comfortable. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much nicer than it looks in the picture., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprisingly sturdily made, and the lid fits well. Since I bought it as a sump hole liner, the lid doesn't matter - but I thought you'd like to know! It's a very good deal. And it arrived very well packaged, swathed in masses of bubble wrap.
