4.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit, 23 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On opening, this looks and feels like a premium product. Incredibly thin which you would expect to mean it is fragile or delicate but it is very robust. Transfer speeds so far have been very fast.
On the down side it gets very cold due to the metal casing which causes some worry when connecting up. Picks up finger marks very easily.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty impressive, 23 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A lightweight toothbrush. Feels comfortable to hold. Have found the cleaning very effective and the selection of heads included is good. The pressure light is a good touch to correct your cleaning technique.
Not too keen on having to cycle through the power button three times to turn the toothbrush off-other brushes I have used have a separate button/switch. The charge cable is quite short compared to other brushes so bare this in mind when you are thinking of the location for the charging dock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 10 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is only one negative we have found so far with this cleaner and that is it doesn't leave as much of a shine as some of its competitors.
However, the actually cleaning ability, scent and size of container more than make up for this.
The fact this is designed for both kitchen and bathroom is excellent, reducing the need for purchasing more cleaners than you need. There is no residue left with the spray which I have found with other cleaners.
I can't vouch for for the germ killing abilities of the cleaner but I assume they can't say it does thsi if it doesn't so we will need to leave that one to the scientists.
Worked equally well in both kitchen and bathroom. Cleaned up the mess left in the kitchen following a 6 year old making buns with little difficulty and the bathroom was left spotless after a beard shaving session by the husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy, 10 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A lovely sized compact with a primer, three eyeshadows and a shimmer top shadow for evening glamour. There are easy to follow instructions on the back of the compact, great idea as many other ranges have hints and tips on an outer packaging that is easily lost. You can try wetting the colours for a more intense effect but I haven't been that brave yet. The two small double ended applicators provided are easy to hold and use.
The primer hides a multitude of sins and keeps the colour looking good for a considerable time. Very long lasting colour but still easy to remove with wet wipes or make up remover. The different eye shadows can be worn alone as well as combined which is good.
I have had bad experiences with eyeshados before, leaving me with red, irritated eyes and was wary of a similar reaction here but I was over the moon with the quality and being left with non-irritated eyes.


Fisher-Price Soothe and Glow Owl - Brown

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better., 10 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I saw this owl I thought it looked really lovely and would be a really nice gift. When it arrived the packaging-a white cardboard box with rather unappealing graphics-it didn't look anywhere near as nice as I had hoped.
On to the owl itself. It is a nice size, well put together-seams are well secured and the plastic yellow teething feet are securely attached. The padding could be better around the battery pack. It is a bit too hard to be truly cuddly. This takes two AA batteries. The music plays for around 15 minutes before it switches off itself. You can turn it off early by pressing and holding the toy but this is definitely not something most younger children will be able to manage.
The music is a bit loud for it to be soothing or settling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for a small room., 30 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Roughly the size of a microwave, this oven would be great for anyone with limited room in the room/kitchen-student, caravan etc.
Have tried several different sized baking trays and sheets with no difficulty fitting them in. Comes with a tray and rack for grilling-great for toast and skewers. The two hobs heat up very quickly and evenly, however not at the same time and you can only use one hob at the same time as the oven.
Not designed for large family cooking but could also provide that extra bit of oven or grill space everyone needs when preparing a big meal. I find it useful when I am preparing meals that need grilled in the Igenix to start and then popped into my main oven which takes forever to heat up!
Have tried roasting a chicken with good results but don't think the Christmas Turkey will fit. Nice even colour on both chicken and potatoes. A little trial and error has resulted in some very nice bread, cakes and buns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not stayproof., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not stayproof! A chunky, easy to hold and use crayon style stain. Very pink. Leaves lips very soft. Transfers onto everything it touches, but on the up side it doesn't stain clothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for weaning and beyond., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good quality storage cups. Measurements on the sides to help monitor what you are storing or what has been used from the cup. Screw tops for the cups. Two different sized cups in the box that use the same lids. Also supplied with one weaning spoon. The cups sit in the lids to stack or provide a more stable base when feeding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Two sensitive skinned children who react to everything have had no reaction to this when used on their clothes and bedding. No residue left in clothes. No scent or odour. I can't verify the reduction in bacteria but it hasn't faded anything or caused any discolouration in the items washed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being an all in one tablet makes this a fantastic way to take care of the dishwasher maintanance at ..., 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Definitely my preferred dishwasher tablet. Being an all in one tablet makes this a fantastic way to take care of the dishwasher maintanance at the same time as thoroughly cleaning the dishes.
Unlike less effective tablets my glasses come out clear-no residue or cloudiness. Even some of my cups that had been more stained than I would care to admit are looking fresher.
Silverware is nice and shiny with no scratching.
No need to try and unwrap those annoying little pouches either-these go directly into the dishwasher wrapped.
The lemon scent is nice-not too over-powering. Keeps the dishwasher smelling fresh between cycles too.
