THREE PACK TIGI ACCESS ALL AREA'S SHAMPOO BAR x3
THREE PACK TIGI ACCESS ALL AREA'S SHAMPOO BAR x3
Offered by at Mr Cosmetics (UK Based Seller)
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Astoundingky, luxuriously effective ..., 1 Oct 2014
This is a shampoo bar, but not as I have ever known them before. I was kind of expecting this bar to strip my hair of its natural oils, leave a soapy residue behind, and a tangled mess of hair. To my great surprise I found the polar opposite - a gentle but luxurious deep lather which thoroughly cleans your hair, leaving no residue at all.

My hair was left soft, clean, shiny and delightfully fragranced. My long, coloured hair is prone to tangling, so I smooth through a drop of argan oil after towel-drying, however I suspect that many will find conditioner to be unnecessary after using this shampoo bar. At most, a spray of some light leave-in conditioner should suffice.

Plus each bar lasts for ages - just ensure to use a free-draining soap dish so as to ensure that the bar dries out fully between uses, otherwise like all soap bars it will go mushy.

I have actually given up using liquid shampoos in favour of this shampoo bar, as it is a pleasure and luxury to use and with less packaging hopefully a bit better for the environment. I only wish that the wrapper of this bar was made from cardboard (more easily recyclable) and not plastic but then I guess the packaging was designed with travellers in mind, and the plastic re-sealable packet enables the soap to be transported following use without leaking or marking the other contents of one's luggage.

It has certainly made me think twice about liquid shampoo - it plus all the plastic bottles really aren't necessary at all - just a marketing ploy to make us feel that we are getting more for our money compared to a bar of shampoo, when the opposite is true, and the corresponding waste packaging is more damaging to the environment.

Cannot recommend this shampoo bar enough - I love it. Give it a try and you will likely be converted also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eagerly awaited but has disappointed me slightly .., 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creation (MP3 Download)
Eagerly awaited, this album has disappointed me slightly. I purchased with confidence, without preview or review based upon owning - and absolutely loving - all the Pierces' previous albums.

For me, this album is missing the soulful .. kooky ... catchy (and often creepy!) songs which the regular listener will have come to expect from the Pierces - the mood feels slightly more 'strident' and upbeat but the songs are somewhat bland - perhaps a requirement of the record label?

The songs are pleasant enough to listen to, but are not 'stand-out' like previous albums. Don't expect the likes of 'Turn on Billie' or 'Lights On' with this. Check out soulmoxie's review, which explains a lot about the mood of this album. She is also absolutely correct that the one aspect which is always above reproach is the singing itself. Only siblings can sing in such perfectly-pitched harmony, and the Pierces sound even better live.

I wish that I had sampled the songs on this album before purchasing - because I feel that then I would may not have proceeded to purchase - at least not the entire album. Thirteen tales of love and revenge' remains for me far and away their best album.

'Try before you buy' is my best advice with this one. I am interested to see what other reviewers make of it.

This basket was purchased to replace a flexible basket which had broken. This time I wanted something sturdier and this addis basket did not disappoint. It is of sufficient size to carry one full load of washing, and small enough to balance on one hip. I expect to get a lot more use out of this than my previous basket.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fully deserving of a five star review, the daily use of this oil over several months has improved the condition of my skin, nails, and has helped relieve a creaky joint. Highly recommended!

I never thought that I would be able to stomach cod liver oil in non-capsule form, but this oil is so very mild and lemony in flavour that taking it every day has not posed any problem at all. On those summer days when I was eating a tuna salad, I even substituted this oil for some of the salad dressing, which was very tasty!

This oil makes you realise and appreciate how very old and rank the likes of 'SevenSeas' etc. are, as they smell and taste so utterly foul. I would not contemplate buying them again.

My only criticism of this wonderful product is the price - it is very expensive, but what price good health?

In the autumn I like eating 'winter warmers' for my lunch at work - i.e. home-made soups, stews, casseroles etc.

This mug has enabled me to get rid of all 'interim storage' for this sort of food in my fridge and freezer. I simply ladle the food directly into a number of these mugs, wait for them to cool sufficiently then move them into the freezer. This cuts down on the washing up and means that I have a ready supply of mugged-up work lunches, ready to grab on my way out in the morning.

Because the food is still frozen during my journey to work, I do not need to worry about the contents spilling during my commute (some other reviewers found that the steam vent leaked liquid during their commute).

The mug itself is excellent quality and very durable .. the perfect size too for a hearty meal. The steam vent for the microwave is a genius invention, ensuring that the walls of your microwave are not spattered with liquid. They are also dishwasher-safe.

I love these mugs so much that I have several of them. They are not the cheapest but they are without a doubt the best quality, and the product is generally just one of those things that make life a bit easier.

Great toy, easy to assemble, and keeps my new kitten occupied for hours! Great fun to watch, and kitty will appreciate you joining in too. Money well-spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trachycarpus Fortunei (purchased from Meditterane Exotik), 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb healthy plant - arrived early within the estimated timescale and in pristine condition. I gave it a little drink and it is now living happily in my back garden, adding a certain tropical ambiance :-).

I hope to buy more plants from Meditterane Exotik next year - I have my eye on some of their lovely agaves and aloes.

Very happy with my purchase - buy with confidence.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased these as an alternative to skechers 'go walk' which fell apart within 2 months of purchase despite light use.

These crocs are a much better, more practical alternative - they look work-smart yet are so comfortable and practical (wipe clean!). They are the comfiest things to wear, and have been keeping my feet cool in the summer weather.
