Nivea For Men Energy 2 in 1 Shower Gel 250ml
Nivea For Men Energy 2 in 1 Shower Gel 250ml
Offered by Direct Pharmacy
Price: £4.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Fragrant, 5 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice fragrance and the gel texture is good. The gel sticks to the body when showering, unlike some brands where it just falls off you and ends up in the base of the shower tray.

If purchasing direct from Amazon be aware that my Nivea was not packaged adequately. Both containers arrived open with the packaging smelling lovely and the other contents sparkling clean and ready to rinse.

Good for the price. Basic layout inside the book but functional. I could have paid three times the price in a local stationers for something similar.


Planam Highline Bib and Brace Overalls Grün/Schwarz/Rot 48
Planam Highline Bib and Brace Overalls Grün/Schwarz/Rot 48

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 5 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use these for gardening, clearing out thick brambles and working in thorn covered areas. The material is thick enough to prevent scratches and cuts but flexible enough to allow easy movement and are comfortable to wear. The pockets and loops are well positioned with additional false pockets to allow access to underclothes. They do not come with fitted knee pads but, in my case, they were not required.

They machine wash extremely well and do not crease badly like poorer quality sets. The colours did not run at all on their first wash and have not faded in use. They are simple to iron, although they don't really need ironing if hung up to dry.

If I have one slight complaint it is about the buckles on the straps that hold up the bib. The buckles are not the conventional metal ones but plastic snap connectors, similar to those found on luggage straps. Otherwise these overalls are excellent quality and very well made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected and well worth the price., 5 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple to fit and the two level lighting is much better than I was expecting. I have one that is not in full sunlight through the day but it still charges enough to last through the night.

The movement sensors are very sensitive which may be a problem if you are siting the lights nears bushes or trees. Any breeze moving the nearby bushes will set off the light. The sensor is not adjustable for range or lux but a small amount of black tape to mask off parts of the sensor will reduce the sensitivity.

These lights are attractive and could easily be stolen from an insecure driveway. To lessen the risk I replaced one of the supplied screws with a torx head screw. If you are mounting the units with the supplied screws onto an external wall be careful that they might rust over the years and leave stains on the wall. I used a 6mm masonary drill bit to wall mount the lights. There is no need to open the lights when setting up. Simply push the little steel pin into the small hole on the front case to activate them.

My lights have been out in severe downpours and they appear to be well sealed. They show no sign of condensation and the solar panel has not crazed over, as happens in cheap units. The instructions supplied could be improved.


Skechers Heisman, Men Loafers, Black (Black), 8 UK (42 EU)
Skechers Heisman, Men Loafers, Black (Black), 8 UK (42 EU)
Price: £44.02

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good looking shoe and after two months they appear to be wearing well. I bought the size I would normally buy and they fitted perfectly. I did not have to break them in and have had no discomfort or rubbing at all.

They are very comfortable to drive in and have not had any issues with the pimple type sole slipping off the car pedals. The grip has been good on pavements in the recent wet weather and they have been waterprooof so far.

I would have given them 5 stars if it was not for the white stitching on both sides of each shoe that now looks a little tatty and the quality of stitching in the two small elasticated areas near the top of the shoe tongue. It is likely over the coming months this stitching will come apart as it is showing signs of wear already.

Happy feet!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wider than your average chair, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear to be made for the American market where the derriere may be a little wider than here in the UK. They are easy to unfold and are suprisingly comfortable. The arm padding is good and the addition of the side pocket is handy for the mobile phone and the odd can.

On the down side, out of 8 chairs I have had one failure where a rivet snapped in one of the leg struts. It was easy to replace with a small nut and bolt.

The chairs have survived a week of camping in poor weather and have scrubbed up like new. They are stable because of the wide footprint and, being metal, don't require any preserver.The stitching so far is holding up well and they fold fairly flat for ease of storage. Bigger than your normal directors chair but not overly heavy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Am only going to use it for gardening power tools and would not like to trust it being plugged in constantly, 12 Aug 2014

The top of my RCD gets very hot when plugged in to the mains even when there is no load going through it. Am only going to use it for gardening power tools and would not like to trust it being plugged in constantly. You get what you pay for.

Xerox Performer Paper A4 80gsm White 003R90649 Pack of 5 Reams
Price: £11.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you can get Amazon to send it, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used before and had no jams or issues in both a fax machine and in two inkjet printers. Not top quality but everyday use as you would expect from the price.

I am still waiting for my last Amazon order of this Xerox Performer paper to be despatched from over 2 months ago. Hopefully Amazon will get hold of some stock soon or will contact me to arrange a substitute.


Braun Series 3 340s-4 Rechargeable Wet and Dry Foil Electric Shaver
Braun Series 3 340s-4 Rechargeable Wet and Dry Foil Electric Shaver
Price: £44.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple to use and holds charge well. Took a week to get a decent shave out of the foils - not sure why a shaver needs to bed in. It is not the closest electric shave and I have had problems with foils ripping in the past. It is too early to tell how this will fair.

The lack of a storage pouch is a minor irritation but the plastic foil guard does clip firmly into place. The razor is well contoured to hold and to get into all of the crevices on the face.

Would never have paid the RRP but at under half price it is better then other razors I looked in a similar price range.


Ivy Gems 9ct Yellow Gold Ruby and Diamond Half Eternity Ring Size M
Ivy Gems 9ct Yellow Gold Ruby and Diamond Half Eternity Ring Size M
Price: £183.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful ring, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read two of the reviews on here I was worried about my purchase. However the quality of the ring and the stones is excellent. The ring is not garish and oversized but it is also not too slim or petite. The rubies sit well and do not catch in clothing or on work surfaces.

If I had any complaints it would be that the presentation box it arrived in was very plain and cheap looking.

All in all, very pleased.
