LEGO 41105 Friends Pop Star Show Stage
LEGO 41105 Friends Pop Star Show Stage
Price: £33.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Lights, Music, Action! SuperStar Singing, 29 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Livi and Andrea pop star show stage is a great addition to the lego friends theme. It comes with the whole stage, lights, gantry and speakers, plus guitar, drum kit and keyboard - all in bright, girlie colours. Plus Livi and Andrea.

Great Points:

^^ Perfect for acting out stage shows. Considering there are so many of these shows on telly nowadays I can see why this will be very popular.

^^ I think it's very empowering play for girls interesting in singing and dancing. It builds confidence during play and can also encourage a new acting or singing career - who knows?

^^ It's quite complex to build, but the instructions are clear, which makes it something the builders have to actually think about. Plus it can become a mother/father daughter or even son, activity when an adult is also enlisted to help the build.

Overall:

Nothing to complain about. It's a cheerfully designed, colourful and exciting Lego pack, which is seriously more than just something to play with - there is so much more to "playing" than at first it may seem and this is a very empowering kit that can play a vital part in building confidence as well as building skills, team building skills, too! Hours of fun.


Cetaphil 295 ml Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Moisturiser
Cetaphil 295 ml Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Moisturiser
Price: £14.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Operator, 29 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cetaphil RESTORADERM Skin Restoring Moisturiser is suitable for anyone with eczema or atopic-dermatitis and other dry skin conditions and caan also be used on babies from 3 months old up.

Positive points:

^^ Great hydration, put's back the moisture plus makes skin feel very smooth and soft.

^^ Free of fragrances, parabens and nut oils, so very kind to sensitive skin.

^^ Non-greasy. Nothing worse than using something like this and then trying to pick up your hot mug of tea with slippery fingers! This product passed that test with flying colours.
Negative points:

^^ Just the one, it seems a little too expensive for me, but it is good, so maybe you feel it is worth splashing out on?

I certainly think it works well and I am pleased with how soft my skin is. I do like the fact it isn't greasy when it is put on. Always a bonus. If you have any dry skin medical conditions, or just want beautifully soft skin, then this is the cream for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Stick (Well, 16GB of power!), 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the HyerX Fury 16GB USB 3.0 because of it cool red design and the amount of GB's it offers for the price.

Positives include:
^^ A loop at the end of the stick to add a key fob, lanyard. Very handy!
^^ Its plug and play, easy to use feature, means no complicated downloads or software to install. Cost-effective
^^ The USB 3.0 speed is pretty quick and also backwards compatible with USB 2.0
^^ Comes with a five-year warranty,and free technical support. Not that I've ever had to use it, since it works fine and is easy to use.
^^ The lid can be removed and added to the other end to prevent loss when in use. Simple but useful. Nothing worse than not being able to cover up the USB stick when it is not is use, because someone lost it!

Negatives include:

^^ Looked for things but couldn't find anything to mention here.

Overall:

I am extremely happy with this purchase and it is compatible with all my gadgets, PC, PlayStation 3 and home theatre - to name but a few. Gets my Sassy stamp of approval.

^^

5.0 out of 5 stars Knitters Choice, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Pixnor Stainless Steel Knitting Needles were sent to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

The positives:

^^ There is a large number of knitting needles (11 pairs) for all sorts of knitwear.

^^ The amount of knitting needles you get for the price is very good indeed.

^^ Each pair comes in their own packaging and their sizes are etched into the ends, so you always know which size is which.

^^ The stainless steel is smooth and light, just what a busy knitter needs.

On the negative side, nothing to report. Gladly.

A decent pack of knitting needles for a decent price. I am very happy with them!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Anti-Aging Aid - Prickly Points of Power, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The TinkSky Microneedle Roller was sent to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. How to use: On each area of your face roll in 3 directions around 7 to 15 times - horizontally, vertically and diagonally, trying not to roll twice on a previously treated area in the same session. Use of a moisturizing serum is advisable after use, and so is cleaning and steralising the roller thoroughly after each use.

Positive points:

^^ This microneedle roller is great for treating scarred tissue (like acne)and increasing collagen through microneedling. This process produces hundreds of holes per cm2 to stimulate growth of new, natural collagen and elastin in the dermis, which aids skin renewal and repair to a cosmetic level.

^^ Used on the face it works like a non-surgical face lift! It can reduce wrinkles, sagging and chickenpox scars, to name but a few things.

^^ Can be used on the rest of the body for an allover firming treatment, which also helps to reduce that dreaded cellulite.

^^ The roller I have is made from medical grade stainless steel with 540-Needles each with a 0.5mm needle length, perfect for renewing aged skin for a younger look without too much pain.

Negative points:

^^ Can be a little prickly and painful as these are really very small sharp needles. Not too bad, otherwise I wouldn't be able to use it, but it is something to think about when considering buying these rollers.

^^ This can make your face red, which can be soothed with a cold pack to reduce this post-therapy redness. In this case, it is advisable not do this treatment in the morning, just before going out somewhere.

Overall:

I am surprised at how well this treatment works. I had a spot breakout the other day and used this over the affected areas and practically overnight all signs of my spot redness had cleared up. I shall be using this, as directed, much more often and learning more about the skin benefits of this product as I do. Thoroughly recommended, but please do your own research to ensure this is the right treatment for you.


Resistance Bands Best for Crossfit Assist Chin Pull Ups for Men or Women Workout and Exercise - Single Band - 6 Options From Low, Medium to Heavy Duty (#6 Blue)
Resistance Bands Best for Crossfit Assist Chin Pull Ups for Men or Women Workout and Exercise - Single Band - 6 Options From Low, Medium to Heavy Duty (#6 Blue)
Offered by Grabbits
Price: £30.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Chin Up! Resistance is a good thing., 28 Jun. 2015
This green extra-heavy Jolly Gear resistance band was supplied to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Resistance training is a great way to challenge muscles for both the upper and lower part of the body in a varied way. In keeping routines varied and challenging all muscle groups it forces the muscles to adapt and strengthen as they respond in size and strength.

Positive points:

^^ It really is quite heavy-duty, which makes it a tougher work out then a lighter, more stretchable band. Good for me and my fitness level.

^^ The band is easy to fold up and put away, which for a piece of excersise equipment is great as it does not take up much space in the house or even in a suitcase when travelling or going on holiday!

^^ Can be used to vary training sessions to prevent exercise routine boredom.

^^ Easy to find exercises, health benefits and other information for these bands on the web.

Overall:

I'm very happy with this band and I am interested in trying out other strengths in order to evaluate how they work for different exercises since they do come in a range of resistance levels from highly stretchable to heavy-duty strength. Don't forget there are several types of exercises you can do, for different parts of the body. For every work out you do, a good rule of thumb is to let the muscle group rest for 48 hours before working the same muscle group again so muscles have time to repair and adapt after a workout. Don't resist any longer, and have fun with this new way of exercising! Highly recommended without resistance...

RUINUO Men's Stainless Steel Deep Memory Black Onyx Pendant Fluorescence Necklace for Lover Couple
RUINUO Men's Stainless Steel Deep Memory Black Onyx Pendant Fluorescence Necklace for Lover Couple
Offered by Ruinuo Jewelry

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Memory Quality Design, 23 Jun. 2015
The RUINUO Men's Stainless Steel Deep Memory Black Onyx Pendant Fluorescence Necklace for Lover Couple -- was another good surprise for me and also exceeded my expectations.

I loved everything about this, including:

^^ The sturdy pendant is large enough to make a statement without being too large and with a beautifully polished look it certainly produces a decorative style of quality design. It has the title of 'deep memory black onyx for lover couple' but I was only supplied with one to review. I think that is all you get when you buy this.

^^ Although advertised as a man's necklace and pendant, I'd be happy to wear this, too.

^^ The pendant came with a choice of two necklaces, one stainless steel chain and one fabric cord. The stainless steel chain is a good choice for those with allergies as the metal does not affect your skin in the same way cheaper metals can. Stainless steel is also much longer lasting and doesn't tarnish like some metals.

^^ The overall presentation truly creates an impression of a company that cares about their products and their quality.

^^ Alongside the great presentation, RUINUO also supplied boxes and a cleaning cloth.

^^ The stainless steel necklace is a good length, smart and stylish.

Overall:

This jewellery looks and feels good quality and is a very pleasing decorative design of which impressed the men in my family -- so top marks for that!

Marimo moss Balls - Healthy Fluffy Green Java Moss Balls Aquarium X 1
Marimo moss Balls - Healthy Fluffy Green Java Moss Balls Aquarium X 1
Offered by Marimo Store
Price: £4.20

1.0 out of 5 stars Unhealthy Fluff, 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marimo moss Balls - Healthy Fluffy Green Java Moss Balls Aquarium X 1 were unfortunately not a pleasant experience for me or my fish.

This was the only thing I added and although it looked lovely for a while, I gradually noticed it disintegrating, which caused a lot of mess in my tank and killed off one of my fishes. I had not added anything else to my tank so can only assume it was this moss ball that caused my fish's death.

Shame, as this looked really nice for a while. I wouldn't recommend unless you are willing to take a chance on the lives of your fish.


Tetra Goldfish Gold Colour Food 75g 75g
Tetra Goldfish Gold Colour Food 75g 75g
Offered by Paws and Claws Pet Shop
Price: £6.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Fish Food for Thought, 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't expect much, after all Tetra Goldfish Gold Colour Food 75g is just goldfish food, but I was pleasantly surprised!

I love:

^^ Its colour enhancing qualities, it does work on my colourful fish and actually improved their colours.

^^ Feeding fish this way is a lot less messier and therefore keeps my tank a lot cleaner for longer. Flakes break off and disperse into the water making the tank dirtier quicker, where as these pellets stay in one piece and are easily spotted and eaten by my fish preventing a lot of wastage.

^^ This tub is large and will last me a long time.

Not so keen on:

^^ The price is a bit steep, but then for this quality I shouldn't quibble - since it works and has lasted a long while, due to the amount supplied and the small amount I feed them daily.

Overall:

Both my fish and I are very happy with this fish food. This is a much better way to feed fish as the food floats on the top for the larger fish I have, so I tend to mix this up with a small amount of the sinking sticks, too - so every fish in my tank has an equal chance of eating, plus the tank is a lot less messier these days. Love it!
