Clearasil Stay Clear Pads 65s
Clearasil Stay Clear Pads 65s

5.0 out of 5 stars Smells much nicer than regular Clearasil pads!, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this after a magazine review which praised the non medicated smell, which is my #1 complaint with such products. Although there is still a hint which is unavoidable due to the ingredients the fruit smell is pleasant and doesn't make my eyes water. In terms of effectiveness it's great at keeping my skin clear (I must add I have mild adult acne so can't comment on its suitability for more severe cases) and doesn't make it feel dry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little machine BUT........., 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's noisy! I brought this to have in my bedroom so I could have coffee from the comfort of my bed. Due to the 15 bar pressure it's pretty noisy and I wouldn't be able to have it in my room if anyone else were nearby! Aside from that it's a great machine, lovely colour and I can't fault it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Won't make yellow blonde hair white... but removes brassiness no problem!, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So I brought this after realising my hairdresser hadn't managed to bleach my roots as light as the lengths of my hair, leaving them a pale orange colour. I applied this and left it on for three hours in the hope it would make my roots the same colour as the rest of my hair (pale yellow blonde) It did a great job in getting rid of the brassy orange and left my hair super soft. I must stress this will not make your hair white, only bleach can do that. If you have white blonde hair it will likely do a great job of keeping it that way but if you have yellow blonde hair, it's best suited to getting rid of brassy tones and making your hair soft.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book- Lots of useful information BUT..., 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...I disagree with his 'naming your business' section.

He argues that your business name should be exactly what is 'says on the tin' so to speak, which clearly works for him with [...] but it doesn't work for every business, and could be a hindrance in my view.

For example, if you make multiple crafts- this is not going to work. If you're going for a 'premium' or 'aspirational' market (which he encourages!) you need a name thats well, more exciting/aspirational/unique!

Other than that lots of useful information here and glad that there is a book that adresses UK specific issues such as HMRC!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!, 26 Aug 2007
This review is from: Skinny Bitch (Paperback)
Everyone who has given this book a bad review has focused on the same point- the swearing! The fact that these reviewers are more concerned with the authors swearing than with the horrors of animal slaughter as detailed in this book, says it all! These people are quick to condone foul language, but they aren't so quick to admit the far worse crime of supporting animal suffering by continuing to eat meat!

This book is excellent. In reference to the swearing, it is a bit heavy to start off with but i find it lessens as the chapters go on. Yes its tough talking but the authors stress that they arent bitches, they dont endorse bitchiness- they are just giving you the facts minus the sugar coating!

Yes its American, but im sure we can all use our heads and find similiar products to those listed. The menus are great, its not all watercress and spinach- there's burgers, fajitas EVEN takeaways!

So you see, its not all bad. In fact, its all good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cupcake Heaven!, 24 Aug 2007
This book is absolutely fantastic! The photos are brilliant, the recipe ideas (green tea cupcakes, bet you never imagined that!) are delicious and original... i do however have some advice for potential non american buyers.

1. It uses ingredients unavailable in the UK (Graham crackers, shortening, etc) So you will have to make some substitutions!

2. Buy yourself a 'Cup Measurer' (got mine from Wilkinsons) A cup is a specific measurement, not just any old mug. Trust me!

3. American cupcake paper cases and trays are a lot deeper than the 'fairy cake' paper cases and baking trays we have in the UK so your cakes will never be quite the same as those pictured!

Despite that, this is an absolute gem and a must have for anyone, omnivore, veggie or vegan with a penchant for cake and icing!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My FAVE Mix!, 3 Aug 2006
Out of all the mixes, this is still the first, and best, of them all! I think the cd works because of the flow between tracks, and the mix of downbeat and upbeat music. The other mixes, excluding 3 as its a chrismukkah mix, have been a lot more downbeat and the tracks tend to blend into one another. My fave tracks from this cd are Spoon- 'Thats the way we get by' (i think this would make an excellent tv theme tune) and South-'Paint the silence' (beautiful title, even better song!) Highly recommended both to fans of The O.C and Indie music fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another smash hit for dualstar!, 22 Nov 2005
This is a really good book- a sort of Trinny and Susannah What Not To Wear for teens minus the snide remarks. Oh, and MKA are far trendier than those two could ever hope to be!
This book has lots of lovely pictures of the twins (i so want the green v neck sweater ashley wears in a few of the pics) and the advice isnt OTT, nor does it demand a lot of spending which is good seeing as we dont have an MKA bank balance! As an older fan of MKA i still found this book really useful and i have used it as inspiration for my everyday dressing!
A must have for ages 8 - 25!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Album!, 10 July 2004
Lillix are pretty much unknown in the UK, and it was only by researching who sang the 'What i like about you' theme tune that i came across them! This album is pop/rock that is less angsty than avril but more rock than tuuli.
A lot of clever songs about all the kinds of situations faced by teens today- and a lot of clever lyrics make this album brilliant!
