Scruffy Chops Rhubarking Mad Shampoo
Scruffy Chops Rhubarking Mad Shampoo
Offered by Shop For Spa
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Stinky dog now decidedly less stinky!, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This shampoo in conjunction with the equally fab conditioner has been a revelation! As the owner of a seemingly naturally stinky pug I'd tried all of the usual 'deodorising' shampoos for dogs with pretty rubbish results. I tried Scruffy Chops on a whim and I'm so glad I did! My pugs's fur is clean and soft and she is unbelieveably sans stink. Her new found freshness isn't only momentary either. She also has sensitive skin and has had no issues with this shampoo whatsoever. I can't recommend this highly enough. Super product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Which? Recommended, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I have Lymphoedema & MS & find arm cuffs incredibly painful. This specific model was recommended in Which? Magazine as it had a 95% accuracy rating which rivalled & even bettered the accuracy achieved by using a monitor with arm cuff. It's very easy to use too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my husband as he has some serious scarring on his shins due to an accident & infection. Let's face it, there's no way a bloke would ever turn to French Skincare BUT even he noticed an improvement within 48 hours of applying it liberally so he might be buying his own when this runs out! Very impressive stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm slightly biased..., 22 April 2013

...as my good friend is the graphic designer of this book, but it's a great read, beautifully illustrated & photographed. A real page turner of 'omg my nan had one of those!' proportions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get real, 22 April 2013

Yet another triumph of common sense presented in Dr Phil's usual style of wording things you 'kind of' knew in such a way that a lightbulb appears above your head.

3.0 out of 5 stars PhD in Photography?!, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If the photographer of this book is truly a professional food photographer then so is my cat. I have never seen such unappetising photos which, perhaps, is the point. Corned Beef Hash which looks like horse dung anyone? Perhaps Trifle which looks like it's just made an unfortunate digestive reappearance? All joking aside (& I'm really not joking) it is a mystery to me as to WHY a book which is obviously aimed at the Diabetic &/or Weightloss readership contains information about so many bizarre & mass-produced foods. There is virtually nothing homemade listed (I've looked & looked & can only come up with Deep Fried Chips & the fruit & veg which isn't manufactured or tinned) therefore rendering all the carb, calorie, protein & fat data vague at best, useless at worst.
There are lots of cereals to choose from, yet none of them include milk. There's details of 100ml of semi-skimmed milk & multiplications thereof but no Toast with Butter (you're in luck if you eat Toast with Peanut Butter, Chocolate Spread, Marmalade or Lemon Curd with margarine)or coffee/tea with sugar & milk. (You can find a teaspoon of sugar in the Sauces & Spreads section though)
There are 11 pages of Cakes & Bakery which, in all honesty, you'd expect a person buying a book about Carbs & Cals to have a rudimentary inclination to avoid in the first place.
As far as portion sizing goes this book does have a use. However the data supplied can't be relied upon for accuracy should you have the temerity to actually make your own Apple Pie, Mushroom Soup (one of my fave photos - clearly dolloped cold, straight out of the tin - yummy), Macaroni Cheese or Spaghetti Bolognese (strangely served side by side on a plate as opposed to a traditional 'in a bowl with sauce on top' stylee). The Takeaway Food section has the sort of nostalgic images that conjure up memories of last night's congealed Beef Chow Mein you blearily eat for breakfast the next day.
With my Diabetes Nurse promoting healthy eating, fresh food & avoiding ready meals, this is the book she recommended I buy & refer to. I'll be having a few words with her I reckon...
