4.0 out of 5 stars I didnt think this would be any good, but I was wrong, 18 April 2016
I didnt think this would be any good, but I was wrong. I wanted something to get rid of my moustache and beard 😯😯 having tried almost every other method of getting rid of the dark thick hairs that sprout from my chin and upper lip (why is it they are so thick and strong their yet the hair on my head is thin and wispy??). I hated the creams coz they burned and dmelled disgusting and I hated shaving as it made me feel unfeminine. I already have an elderly braun epilator that I use on my legs successfully so thought Id give this a go even though the reviews here on anazon are mixed.
First impressions: its light and easy to hold. I like that the heads can turn in either direction. I found it very effective on even tiny weeny hairs on my face. BUT I found the area between my nose and upper lip (the hitler moustache area) very painful, other areas much less so.

I found the brush was soft yet effective. True its not a great exfoliator but it certainly worked with my elemis balm cleanser to give me soft, grntly buffed skin.

So why the 4 stars if I found it so good? It would deserve 5 *'s from me if it was electically powered rather than battery powered. I can see me getting through quite a few AA's. The motor could also be a little stronger if nains powered.

I hope my review has helped ☺

1.0 out of 5 stars Choose a different kettle., 27 Sept. 2015
Dreadful. 2 have had to be returned. All started ok with all working fine but after about a month the lid stops popping open and after another few weeks it starts cutting out and refusing to boil. My current one is now doing the same so will be returned. No third time lucky for me and I will be choosing a different model and make as its replacement. This just isnt good enough Bosch :(

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very samey. If you like dates, nuts, nut butters and seeds this book is for you as a LOT of recipes contain these ingredients. Too many (very high calorie) snacks (though no nutritional information is included in the book which is very poor nowadays but I suspect this was left out because the recipes are often high in calories), not enough recipes for actual meals. I agree with others who say the cost of ingredients is very high.
Give this book a miss, go to her blog and print the (few) recipes you will want to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 20 July 2014
What a great little gadget that is helping and encouraging me to be more active. It works well in conjunction with My Fitness Pal (which I was using for 6 months before getting the FitBit One). However, Im not sure about the accuracy of it - I can be in bed asleep all night yet it records steps (and no, I don't sleep walk). It also records steps whilst exercising on a static bike. Sometimes it doesn't record flights of stairs either. But hey, nothing is perfect and its good enough for me.

Im not a fan of the wristband, its too wide and too hot to wear in the summer. I would prefer a slimmer band but maybe one will be produced in due course.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very few recipes, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the paperback version. Over half of this book is about the 5:2 diet, how it works and suggested meal plans so if you've already bought a 5:2 book this information wont be looked at (as the info is better in the other books imho). The few recipes that are in this book are ok but there are not enough of them and they are not particularly exciting or appealing.

I will be tearing out or scanning the few recipes I will actually cook and put them in my scrapbook. The rest of the book will go for recycling/charity shop. Save your money and buy Kate Harrisons recipe book, the recipes are much better and there are many many more of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like most of the recipes!!, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own many cookbooks. Im also a fussy person food-wise and there is a lot I don't like. If Im lucky I would like and want to make 50% of the recipes in most of my cookbooks but in this book Ive turned the corners down on about 95% of the recipes!
