Lynx Signature Anti-Mark Protection Roll On 50 ml - Pack of 6

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective antiperspirant, 26 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unlike most Lynx products this is a roll-on anti perspirant rather than a spray can. The roll-on is designed to work for unto 48 hours and it certainly is effective for close to that time. Unlike most Lynx body sprays there's almost no scent associated with the product.

This seems to be a new product line for Lynx and if you're looking for an effective antiperspirant without the white residue often associated with sprays, this is worth a look.

Overall a good four star product


Murad Redness Therapy Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum 30 ml
Murad Redness Therapy Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum 30 ml
Price: £47.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Redness skin therapy, 26 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This product is one of several which comprise the Murad anti-redness skincare regime including, in order of application to the skin, Murad Redness Therapy Soothing Gel Cleanser, Murad Redness Therapy Recovery Treatment Gel, and Murad Redness Therapy Recovery Treatment Gel! It's designed top be used after cleansing and application of the gel, and prior to moisturising. So if you go for the whole Murad regime there are a few other recommended products as well. On this the Amazon product page has a problem. One photo shows the Murad therapy being part two of the program. The actual product bottle, and the instructions, show it to be a part three product for hydration and protection.

The product aims to lock in moisture preventing skin drying out. The bottle is small at 30ml, and expensive. In use it's easy to apply. It's a thin liquid with very little scent, that's easy to apply to the skin and drys quickly. Only a small amount is needed so the product should last for a while.

After a few uses I don't notice a dramatic improvement in my skin, but this is difficult to assess as I don't have the other products recognised by Murad. As it's quick and easy to use I'll probably stick with it and will report any major skin changes.

For the moment a cautious four stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Low-cost brush heads, 23 Mar. 2016
These brush heads are compatible with a wide range of Philips electric toothbrushes and certainly the two variants I have. Like the Philips manufactured brushes the bristles colour fades with age indicating when a replacement is needed. The greatest plus point for the brushes is without doubt the fact that they are a fraction of the price of the Philips ones.

However, although they are compatible, and good pretty good value, they are not the same as the Philips brushes. Most notably the brushes are softer than the original version. As a result I don't think they have quite the cleaning punch that the Philips brushes have. They still perform better than a standard tooth brush.

Overall three stars. You decide how much cost is a factor.

I received a complimentary pack of brushes in return for an independent review.


Lynx Tobacco and Amber Urban Daily Fragrance 100 ml - Pack of 6
Lynx Tobacco and Amber Urban Daily Fragrance 100 ml - Pack of 6
Price: £35.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 22 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fragrances are very subjective things to review - a scent liked by one person might be hated by another. So, subjectively, this 'urban daily fragrance' smells remarkably good. I can't detect any scent of tobacco - at least not the smoked kind anyway. And I'm not sure what Amber should smell like. I guess the smell I decent is vanilla which is fortunate as I like the smell of vanilla.

This product marks a new marketing development by Lynx to develop a more sophisticated, less teenage-focused product. And it works. The packing is more subdued, the scent is meant to be applied more like a cologne on wrists and neck - not under your arms! And the smell is meant to last all day which it does.

Perhaps the fragrance is a little overpowering so it should be applied in small amounts. This will be difficult for the teenage demographic and there's a danger that over-liberal use will kill all flies within 100 metres. But for the adult market it works.

So a good four stars. I don't think I can give a fragrance 5 stars as it's so subjective. I'd recommend you try this.


Murad Resurgence Hydrating Toner 150 ml
Murad Resurgence Hydrating Toner 150 ml
Price: £25.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Toner as part of a comprehensive skin-care programme, 21 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Part of the Murad 'resurgence' skin care range this is one of the less expensive products. It's a skin toner designed to be used after cleansing but before further skin treatments and moisturiser - see the steps outlined on the Amazon product page. Of course when you add up the cost of each of the creams and tonics it's a fairly extensive process.

I haven't used the toner for long enough to discern any clear results - and as it's associated with a range of other products an assessment on this part of the Murad programme is difficult. In use it's easy to apply via a spray dispenser, has a fairly strong smell which is not entirely pleasant, and drys on the skin quickly. It comes in a 180ml bottle which I would expect to last for quite a while.

I'll update this review if anything dramatic happens, whether positive or negative! For the moment a cautious four stars.


Command 17807CLR-ES Party Mounting Strips - Clear
Command 17807CLR-ES Party Mounting Strips - Clear
Offered by Welcome eShop
Price: £3.17

4.0 out of 5 stars Double sided tags for light weight items, 20 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This pack contains 18 single-use double sided sticky tags that are designed to attach light-weight items to a clean surface, and one that is not wallpapered. Each tag has a removal tag that if pulled correctly will remove the tag from the surface without causing any damage.

The Amazon page for this item is slightly confusing as other products in the range come with some type of hook. With this item you only get the sticky tabs which are attached directly to the item you want to hang.

They work pretty well for light items. There are lots of warnings though about not using above a bed, not using on wallpaper, not using for framed photos etc. They are fit for purpose when used as described and with 18 tags are reasonable value for money compared to other items in the range.

Four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 15 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This kit combines a hands on task and a bit of augmented reality fun. A child gets to 'dig' out dinosaur bones out of a plaster-like slab. Then the dinosaur skeleton can be reconstructed and using one of the bones to reconstruct a DNA sequence VR brings the dinosaur to life. The VR was most keenly received and the extraction of the dinosaur can create a bit of a mess. But overall good fun. The digging is a one-off activity but the VR and the skeleton can obviously be kept forever.

Excellent overall and five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to fix posters to walls, 13 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An alternative to blue-tack for securing light-weight objects to most wall types. They remove easily leaving not staining or residue unlike blue-tack! An excellent product. Recommended.


Command 17804Q-ES Party Mini Spring Clips
Command 17804Q-ES Party Mini Spring Clips
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for specific purpose, 13 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are very small (15mmx15mm) clips that are designed to be firmly attached to a variety of surfaces (with the key exception of wallpapered walls) using 'Command' strips which are very sticky are can be attached and detached without wall damage. And, if you follow the simple instructions, and use them for a suitable purchase - for holding very light objects such as postcards, shopping lists, kids artwork etc, they work well.

In this pack you get four clips and six strips which mean than the non-reusable strips allow you to re-site two of the four clips after first fixing.

Difficult to fault if these are used for the purpose they were designed. The clips are too small to clip thick objects and I doubt would hold anything weighty.


3M Cord Bundlers with Command Strips
3M Cord Bundlers with Command Strips
Price: £2.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for specific purposes, 13 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This pack contains two cord bundlers which are designed to be fixed on to a wall (as long as the surface is suitable) to tidy and raise a cable off the floor. The cord bundlers are fairly small and can be adhered to suitable surfaces only - most notably not to wallpapered walls or tiled areas, or indeed areas exposed to moisture. Further, you only get three 'Command' strips which glue the bundlers to the wall. Whilst the system is designed to attach the bundlers to the wall without causing any damage to the wall - as drilling a hole in a wall would do - and can be easily detached by pulling the strips off the wall as described in the instructions - this makes the bundlers a one-use product unless you have spare strips. So it's a pity there's only one spare one.

Within these limitations the product works well for the specific circumstances for which it's designed. So four stars but make sure your application matches the purpose for which the product's designed.
