H2D Magicurl Reverse Waver Hair Curling Wand
H2D Magicurl Reverse Waver Hair Curling Wand
Price: £59.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, high quality curling wand, 2 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very easy to use curling wand that is actually salon quality and comes in a nice presentation box which also makes it ideal as a gift. In addition you get a protective glove to protect your fingers when using. The ceramic reverse conical design works a treat at creating nice curls with the minimum of hassle and it heats up very quickly- it is ready for use well within a minute- and as this is a professional device, it does get very hot so using the glove is a must. Once mastered though, this is a very high quality wand that produces fantastic results and should last for years.


CALMURID PRO Very Rich Ointment
CALMURID PRO Very Rich Ointment
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal clinical solution for dry skin problems, 2 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good moisturising product if you suffer particularly from areas of dry skin. As it says on the tube it's actually an ointment more than a cream and the high level of almond oil gives it a distinct, soothing consistency with a pleasant, subtle aroma. A little goes a long way too and it dries in a short time giving quick results. Very pleased with this- ideal for those looking for/needing a more clinical solution to their skin moisturising/hydration needs than run-of-mill high street creams.


Corruption: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Corruption: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Leslie Holmes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A quick, highly informative grounding in the issue., 2 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great series- if at times patchy- of what are basically essays exploring a particular topic and we have here a worthy addition to it.

As usual the information is concise and the narrative detailed enough to inform and provoke thought, without being too complex. So we get here an erudite analysis of corruption that explains all the key issues and how they can be framed in a number of economic, political and culture-specific ways.

A vast subject but one that is tackled very well and particularly relevant to our times. Got an extremely useful further reading section too. Well worth a look for a quick, informative grounding in the issue.


Missing Persons
Missing Persons
by Nicci Gerrard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing, character-led novel, 2 July 2015
This review is from: Missing Persons (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An engrossing novel that is very much character-led, and the emphasis is often on character development- and letting the reader get to grips with the inner workings of the character's mind- than plot but that's not a problem, as it makes for a fascinating, affecting read.

The book deals with what is perhaps everyone's worst nightmare- the disappearance of a loved one without any apparent explanation or sense of 'closure.' Suddenly a huge gap appears in a number of life's that has to be 'understood.' This is not a thriller but a deft novel that explores that tragedy and well worth a look.


FORZA Multivitamin for Dieters
FORZA Multivitamin for Dieters
Offered by Forza Supplements
Price: £7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good addition to a dieting regime, 2 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are pretty good multi-vits for women wanting a supplement when dieting- although of course they are useful supplements in themselves even if you aren't watching your weight. The range of vitamins and minerals included is spot-on and there's a small, handy booklet included which explains the supplements, gives some simple recipes and has a dieter's journal in it too, which is quite useful. The tablets themselves are quite big, but par for the course with ones that pack this range of vitamins and minerals. So can't go wrong really if you are looking for a good-quality addition to your dieting regime.


Braun Silk Epil 5-541 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator with Shaver Head
Braun Silk Epil 5-541 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator with Shaver Head
Price: £88.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well designed, easy to hold and use adaptable epilator, 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very handy little epilator that is lovely to hold and manipulate that has the invaluable feature these days of being usable wet or dry. It's got good, lengthy cordless battery life and it has extremely close epilation- the finished result is extremely smooth and long lasting. Adaptable too with four different attachments. It's a particularly handy size for use when traveling and all in all a very effective hair zapper for lightish, regular use. Great if your newish to epilators or need a good quality, workaday device. would definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid, high quality electric toothbrush with useful variable speed and excellent 3 week charge, 30 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Supplied in a white box without any instructions or an adapter to plug the charger into [it came provided with just a 2 pin plug] it's not possible to fully review this product. My limited experience of it sans instructions- which are handy actually because it's more advanced than your average electric toothbrush and the buttons/lights aren't self-explanatory, I mean how do you use the whitening function?- is a reasonably positive one though.

It's a solid bit of kit as expected from Philips and for my tastes perhaps a bit too much, as I prefer slimmer models and this shape is a little unwieldy for yours truly. You know you have substantial quality in hand though, it feels as if it will last forever and it looks quite stylish, but the big question of course is, does it do the business in the teeth department. Well the variable speed is good and the head positive and effective, although I haven't checked how much they cost to replace but I would guess it's not cheap. In fact the whole unit is perhaps too expensive really- I know as a Vine reviewer I got it gratis, but £140 seems a bit steep for a leccy toothbrush when others I've had- such as the one I'm using now- are less than half the price and I reckon just as effective and even in some cases better designed ergonomically. Okay I know you get the sonic action and it holds it's charge for up to three weeks, indicating a top-flight battery [which you are of course paying for], but still...

Having said that, if it's important to you to have the BMW of toothbrushes in your bathroom and travel bag, this is probably the model for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very adaptable and easy to carry selfie system, 28 Jun. 2015
I'm very impressed with this bit of kit which is great value for what you get. It's well made and easy to operate, Bluetooth pairing is easy and stable and the instructions clear enough [although being a Chinese product the English is a bit 'eccentric' it's perfectly understandable] The function buttons on the stick are positive and easy to use too. Also it held my Galaxy phone firmly in a strong, spring loaded clamp.

It's flexibility is what impresses me, as you get a good range of options to operate it making it very adaptable. The inclusion of a tripod mode for example is great, along with of course the normal extendable arm one. The whole kit is also lightweight for carrying around, without being too flimsy, enabled by the inclusion of a carry pouch.

All round a great little selfie system, would definitely recommend a look [product was provided to me by manufacturer for a fair review].

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good nutritional profile and empty bowl = no complaints, 27 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Goes down a treat this with our small dog. Good sized, small chunks of dry food that he wolves down, whether on it's own or mixed with some canned wet food. Comes in a handy resealable bag too and nutritional profile is excellent. Empty bowl= no complaints.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy and long lasting spray oil, 27 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very handy spray lube oil that I find very useful for garden equipment in particular and works well too on ordinary bikes chains. It's got a higher viscosity than ordinary WD40 and so is a lot more stickier, particularly if you get it on your hands but nothing a good clean with white spirit doesn't sort out. Great WD40 quality too in terms of being quick drying, long lasting and never clogs the spray device. Definitely recommend.
