Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Collection
Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Collection
Price: £26.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked with reservations., 31 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This product does exactly what it says. It is intense hydration and is excellent for really dry skin. However, if your skin is normal or oily - even if you are older, then you may find it a little bit heavy. found the day cleanser and moisturiser too cloying in the warm weather we were having at the time and my skin felt clogged rather than hydrated. The night cream I really liked. It has a lovely fresh smell and didn't seem to sit on the skin so much. It makes a superb hand cream.
Bottom line - really good for very dry skin as the product suggests, but it's a bit heavy.


The Girl in the Photograph
The Girl in the Photograph
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable novel in the spirit of Jane Eyre., 28 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What an enjoyable Gothic novel. Just the kind of book with which to curl up on a rainy afternoon or evening with tea and a blanket. It's loaded with atmosphere and mystery and all the elements beloved of the genre. Jane Eyre for the 21st century reader.

Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really liked this. It made removing eye makeup very quick and easy and it didn't sting or irritate the skin. In fact it was generally good for removing all makeup from the face and didn't take a great amount of the product to do so. I would certainly buy this again and keep it as a staple on the bathroom shelf.

A lovely quality item, solid and well made. I have not used it for hanging belts but for necklaces and it's ideal for the job. A versatile, long-lasting piece of kit that although functional is handsome and stylish too.


Brabantia Smart Pegs - Yellow/Mint
Brabantia Smart Pegs - Yellow/Mint
Price: £4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Good item, slightly pricey for what they are., 3 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lovely, strong, good-gripping pegs. A bit expensive thought. We generally buy wooden ones and they cope just as well with the heavy stuff on the line and last several years. These do what they say on the tin and will hold more bulky items on the line very well indeed. They're better than the majority of plastic pegs.


Black-Eyed Susans
Black-Eyed Susans
by Julia Heaberlin
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Generally enjoyed, 3 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Black-Eyed Susans (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A psychological thriller told in alternate present day and flashback chapters. The protagonist is the survivor of a serial killer, supposedly awaiting execution on Death-Row. But what if he's still out there?
This is an unsettling, edgy novel, well-written and very much on trend with the current crop - Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, etc. It's more of the same but different, and it's gorgeously presented. It's multi-faceted and can be thought about from several angles too.
I definitely enjoyed it at four star level even if it wasn't up there among my best ever reads. I didn't particularly engage with the protagonist but that's par for the course in this current style of thriller, and I guessed certain key elements of the story from the start. However, it kept me entertained for several days of lunchtime reading.


Crayola Sketch Wizard Kit
Crayola Sketch Wizard Kit
Price: £22.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable pastime, 3 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Crayola Sketch Wizard Kit (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great accessory for many drawing projects. It's versatile and absorbing. Better for older children who are dextrous and have fine motor control and a better ability to concentrate. Also good for adults. It's easy to set up as long as you go steadily. The only difficulty I had was that my own paper was too big for the securing pockets at their corner and I had to weight it down one side. The paper securing itself could be a little bit firmer so you don't get paper movement when drawing, and it's the reason I dropped a star. But it can be solved and the item itself is great fun.


Rimmel London Kate Lipstick Summer, Natural Beige
Rimmel London Kate Lipstick Summer, Natural Beige
Price: £5.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 28 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rather than being what I would call 'natural beige' this is an unnatural and unflattering shade of orangey-pink. It feels sticky, fatty, and muddy on the lips in wear. Sometimes you can pay over the odds for makeup that is no better than the cheap stuff and sometimes the cheap stuff is fantastic. But not in this case.


Early Rider Road Runner 14-inch Aluminium Balance Bike - Age 3 to 4.5 years
Early Rider Road Runner 14-inch Aluminium Balance Bike - Age 3 to 4.5 years
Price: £149.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended., 15 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The build quality of this little bike is absolutely superb. An average 3-5 year old will get a couple of years use out of it, although children at the taller end of the sizing range might find it a bit small by the time they get to 5. It's certainly built to last and is a great investment if you have younger sprogs coming along behind. It looks the part and will suit cycle-minded parents as an addition to the family. Definitely a winner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loved it to bits - unfortunately., 5 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was a huge hit with our Patterdale terrier (Nuttall) from the minute it emerged from the package. He was desperate to play with it and ran off down the garden. We had a fun time throwing and bouncing and catching. Then while self and husband had lunch, he lay down in his basket and had a bit of a chew before he took a nap. This is the result and within an hour of emerging from the package. I would so love for a manufacturer to actually make a terrier-proof dog toy. The only one that has stood up to all the vigour so far is a Kong. We can get about six months out of one of those. The toy under review is still useable but it didn't last an hour with our dog.
