4.0 out of 5 stars Pyramid bag with a tag how easy is that ?, 2 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Green Tea from PG in a Pyramid bag with a tag how easy is that.

I fallen shy in the past of green tea as its often quite bitter, though some research seems to suggest I have use water that’s too hot in the past.

So with these water in the cup first rest for two then drop the bag in keeping the tag free steep the tea for 2 minutes and hey presto nice refreshing cup of quite tasty Green tea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorillaz Lite No way its Rocket Juice, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocket Juice & The Moon (Audio CD)
What an interesting album, Damon Albarn moves from the slick production of Gorillaz to to this more minimal approach.
I don’t think I have ever heard ‘Flea’ (Of the Red Hot Chillie peppers) sound so restrained, and Tony Allen’s drumming is pretty minimal.
The music is kind of funky certainly grooves and the vocalists Erykah Badu, Fatoumata Diawara, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, M.anifest, and Cheick Tidiane Seck, are top quality.
Nothing like what I was expecting but still very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the budding art student wants, 2 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This set of Pastels is just what the budding art student wants with a wide selection of colours, these pastels are well made nicely packed and presented in the box.

The pastels themselves are relatively easy to hold (square shaped) and do not crumble in your hand when in use, the colours are vibrant and can be blended well.

Not sure how else I can review a pastel itself, however the box offers good protection ‘in transit’ and the Amazon packing was more than adequate for the job. So these arrived in tip top condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good value overall, 28 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It’s a razor and very functional and well-built as you would expect from Braun.
There is a nice substantial blade cover which is sturdy and great if you are travelling.
The razor works well, and quieter that the series 5 which this replaces. There is a beard /sideburn trimmer which is available at the touch of a button.

The razor charges reasonably quickly around an hour would appear to do a weeks’ worth of shaving quite easily, I have yet to run the battery down completely from fully charged and has done three so far.
The heads float and trim independently with a more substantial cutter in the middle.
So far so good, the downside and really minor niggles but it’s something easy to fix but of late Braun don’t seem to want to fix.
1) The brush for cleaning the blade heads is just loose it’s not held in the body of the razor. Many years ago Braun’s did this.
2) The plug is one of that Horrible continental two pin jobs and not a three pin job which means you need an adapter to charge it.
Has to drop a point for the above niggles but pretty good value overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery to Me, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
How can you go wrong with 5 Fleetwood Mac albums at for the cost of 1 Full price CD.
OK this was a period of great change for the band the end of the first great period with Peter Green, (The US track listing of 'Then Play On' not the recent superior UK tracks), the Introduction of Christine McVie and a number of Guitarists taking charge to greater or lesser effect. Some albums work better than others despite the evocative cover 'Bare Trees' is more miss than hit and the production sounds poor Drums sound like cardboard boxes, while 'Kiln House' and 'Mystery to Me' have a better hit potential. Overall very pleased with the set it filled the gap in my Mac Collection and that is not a bad thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Evocative of misty autumn evenings, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sand Snowman -Ltd- (Audio CD)
A neat easy and relatively cheap way to acquire three very good albums, buy the vastly underrated sand snowman.
The style is very much ambient but with a an acoustic guitar lead. The vocals a sung in whispered and hushed tones and the atmosphere is evocative of misty autumn evenings.

Very happy to get this box set which houses 'I'm not here' 'The Twilight Game' and 'Two way Mirror' in mock LP sleeves and then wraps them in a protective box. The only thing missing is a booklet with some history for each album but in a sense that adds to the mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars 30 degree washes curry dishes and pots clean, 12 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These really do have the power to clean even at low temperatures pop the tablet in your dishwasher as you would normally select your cleaning setting and press go (I should not really have to tell you how to run your dishwasher).
We have used then to clean on 30 degree washes curry dishes and pots a great test of any dishwasher cleaner and they have come out clean and with the washer smelling clean as well.
A bit pricey but worth it


Bosch Isio Cordless Shrub/ Grass Shear
Bosch Isio Cordless Shrub/ Grass Shear
Price: £53.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for any keen amateur gardener, 12 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This cordless clipper set is excellent, we have used them to trim two box bushes and there was plenty of juice left for some other trimming and general garden tidying.
They are reasonably light considering they must have a reasonable size battery in them, and can be operated with one hand. The two interchangeable heads that come in the pack are reasonably easy to clip on to the body of the unit and unclipped.
The great thing about this is it forms the first building block to other tools. There is an extension pole that can be purchased separately which can again be clipped to the base unit.

For the price this comes highly recommended for any keen amateur gardener

1.0 out of 5 stars The blue and red flashing lights look nice, 29 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One of the more disappointing toys I have ever bought, while this says easy to fly I found it anything but. The liking of toy to remote is seem-less and the blue and red flashing lights look nice when its on, but within 2 minutes of getting it off the ground it took a dive to the left crashed and one of the propellers ended up broken.

This was easily replaced with one of the four spares in the box, however after that there is a noticeable lag in the rotor starting, the rotor does not turn properly at all rendering the toy un-flyable as it forever flips on to its top from the site where the rotor which once spun so freely but no long rotates in a free manner.

On the plus side it charges quickly but, as for being a robust toy well this 47 year old can say its not that robust at all and is very poor value for money.

Braun Silk-épil 7 7569 - Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator with 6 Extras (Including Shaver Head and Trimmer Cap, Cleansing Brush for Face)
Price: £99.19

5.0 out of 5 stars The best epilator to date, 27 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the best epilator my wife has tried to date, she was very positive about all aspects of the product.
The Epilator has some different head attachments, a razor, trimmer, and the spinney roundy epilator head, which seems to work more effectively than her previous epilators ,even in water. The light on the unit is very bright making it easy to see the short hairs.
The unit also lasted for a long time on one charge, enough to complete the tasks required easily.
Also included was a face cleansing brush which is battery operated (2AA batteries which were included), It has two speeds, and is very gentle on the skin, which felt very smooth and silky after use.

The only downsides we found, are that not everything fitted in the travel bag provided, and the charger lead is a European 2 pin lead, so it requires an adapter for a three pin plug.

Would definitely recommend this product
