ThermaCare Therapeutic Heat Wraps for Pain Relief - Neck,Shoulder and Wrist -3 Wraps
ThermaCare Therapeutic Heat Wraps for Pain Relief - Neck,Shoulder and Wrist -3 Wraps
Price: £6.12

2.0 out of 5 stars Convenient in an emergency, 5 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is quite an expensive way of providing a heat source for an area of pain.
While they are convenient in an emergency there is a whole list of warnings which include:
Do not use for more that 12 hours in any 24.
Do not apply extra pressure to a wrap.
Do not overlap the heat-cells.
Do not use with medicated topical ointments
Do not use on broken skin
Do not use if broken or torn
Do not re-use
If the wrap feels to hot stop using it.
Stop use and consult a doctor if you experience any discomfort, burning , swelling, rash or other skin changes where you have had the wrap in contact with your skin.
Oh and one last one Do Not Eat.

If you feel that this is the right product for you then Go ahead and use otherwise use a hot water bottle instead, which can be purchased on Amazon as well for a fraction of the cost

On the plus side these are convenient if travelling and need to take a pain relieving heat source rather than a hot water bottle, that if the airline lets you carry these on to the aeroplane.

4.0 out of 5 stars with added chocolaty bits, 2 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A tasty treat Alpen with added chocolaty bits, the ingredients are up to the usual standard you expect from the Alpen brand the chocolate bits are like curls of dark chocolate and add a pleasant chocolate flavour.
A winner in our house (two adults and two teenage kids) for our post Christmas comedown weaning slowly off the high fat foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Large and versatile, 28 Dec. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice product with easy to use application brushes, my wife is particularly pleased with the fact these do not clog or clump, as much down to the mascara as the brushes I am sure. Overall the package is slightly larger than some mascaras but does reflect the versatility of the product.

Overall a quality product, though a tad more expensive than would normally be paid but Amazon do offer this a good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Man friendly', 23 Dec. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What do you give the man who has lots of Power tools ?
A laser measure that's what, Fitting nicely into a small pocket this measure will measure very accurately from 15 CM to 15 meters.
The functionality is 'Man friendly' as well with a big thumb sized on off switch.
My only concern is that at the price this might exclude all but the dedicated amateur DIYer from purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars God rest you merry players, 9 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas (Audio CD)
A Folky Christmas album full of Good cheer and great arrangements very professionally played by the `Players'. A quick look at the names of the players suggests a good knowledge of music.
My find of this season, even though it was recorded in the eighties. Its winter and its Christmas music what's to go wrong?


Cole & Mason 11 cm Shaw  6 Jar Filled Herb & Spice Rack

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic Spice Rack, 9 Dec. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great basic Spice rack with a starter kit of herbs and spices:

Bay leaves (Flaked),
Coriander seed,
Fennel seed,
Marjoram,
Oregano.
Thyme,

All of which I use in the kitchen to a greater or lesser extent, the jars have three open settings and a closed setting and are flexible and refillable.
The rack is a resin rack which feels OK not maybe as expensive as it should given the price of the product.

If I am going to be picky then I would like to have had the jars minus the names of the herbs so that I could substitute ones I use more. This is a minor inconvenience and I am sure the names could be removed without too much damage I just cannot bring myself to do that right now.

If you are new to cooking or setting up a home for the first time this is probably a great start. For the more advanced cook maybe switch to one of the more expensive racks from Cole & Mason (Also available on Amazon).

One last comment the packing was excellent with rack packed in a purpose built box, which was overwrapped with another box, and shipped by amazon in a further box which was full of paper wadding, needless to say it arrived undamaged.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the budding Architecture student, 9 Dec. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the budding student who is good at art and wants to be an architect come Archi-doodle, a book which covers many architect drawing styles and offers pages to `copy' or even `change and enhance' already drawn pictures.

A timely book my daughter is taking her options and wants to be an architect so what better way to encourage her with her plans for the future.

A winner for her but not possibly for everyone, though it can be used as an aid to the budding artist as well..

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks quite cheap but packs a punch., 5 Dec. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a basic manual staple gun,, my main issue it feels cheap the handle could be a bit more substantial and the safety catch is a bit tricky to set, and the loading mechanism for the staples relies on flexing bendy a plastic hinge.

On the plus side the gun packs a pretty punch banging the staples firmly in place. Its very intuitive to use and comes with enough staples for your first few jobs.

Overall a mixed package some very good aspects but the overall look and feel let it down.
