Montezuma's Grand Slamm Bar Library 100 g (Pack of 10)
Montezuma's Grand Slamm Bar Library 100 g (Pack of 10)
Price: £16.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Some great, some average chocolate, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have bought montezuma's chocolate before, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

However, this back was a bit too experimental. Generally, the milk chocolate bars were very good, and tasty.

However, the dark chocolate flavours (and I'm generally a fan of dark chocolate) are not particularly pleasant. The lime and sea salt, and the orange and geranium flavours just didn't work at all, and ended up straight in the bin (a rarity given how much me and my wife love chocolate).

Really only enjoyed half the bars in the pack, so giving this 3 stars.


Nivea For Men After Shave Soothing Balm 100ml
Nivea For Men After Shave Soothing Balm 100ml
Price: £2.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellet post shave treatment, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as was trying various products for post shave treatment - never been quite happy with the different things that I've used.

So pleased that I found this - not that I have, I won't be using anything else.

Nice and refreshing to apply, not greasy at all, and absorbs very quickly. Feels great for the rest of the day.

In summary, highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Thomas film, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 4 year old son loves Thomas episodes, and his wooden railway, so thought I'd get him this feature length effort.

He absolutely loves it - can sit rapt for the whole film (though would usually have him watch it in 2 sittings). He knows and loves all the characters in it - even the new ones - especially Stephen, as a fairly unusual looking engine. (I'm quite pleased about Stephen too, I've waited my whole life to have a Thomas character named after me!)

Nice clear animations, and a few energetic songs makes it very watchable. Even for adults, it holds attention quite easily - I liked the nod to one of the old books (about Henry's problems with coal), they obviously tried to appeal to a wide demographic.

In summary, it's excellent, and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent help for tired eyes, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as my eyes are often looking tired, with dark circles underneath.

This stuff has been great. Very quickly made a noticeable difference to the darkness and tightness around my eyes.

Easy to apply, as a kind of gel, doesn't feel too greasy, and dries in very quickly. Almost feels like it's working right away.

In summary, highly recommended.


Kent's Kitchen Thai Green Curry Meal Kit 65 g (Pack of 1, Total 4 Kits)
Kent's Kitchen Thai Green Curry Meal Kit 65 g (Pack of 1, Total 4 Kits)
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasty meal, 1 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this as I'm a big fan of Thai curry.

This comes as a 4 sets of little pots containing different oils and spices. You still need to add coconut milk (and other meat/veg as required). Doesn't feel like great value, but the bits seem decent quality, and the whole process is very simple.

Was very easy to put together, and I was very pleased with the end result. It is pretty taste, and decent spicy kick to it, without being too hot.

In summary, highly recommended.


Nix 5g Styptic Pencil
Nix 5g Styptic Pencil
Offered by Pharmacy Place
Price: £2.13

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this is as I often get the odd nick or two when shaving. Especially easy to clip a mole, which, without this stick, can be very difficult to stop bleeding.

With this stick, it's no problem. It does sting a fair amount, but is very effective. Highly recommended.

A lot of the Dolce Gusto coffees are pretty average, but have found this the best in the range.

Great taste, nice and strong, an excellent Espresso. Highly recommended

Offered by This Is It Famous Value Stores
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, strong garden membrane, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this to go under a few centimetres of stones on a garden border.

Has been there for a good couple of years now, with absolutely nothing coming through - so decent heavy duty membrane, has done the trick perfectly, and really good value for this good sized roll.

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars great value rechargeables, 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got these as with a couple of kids in the house, chew through a huge amount of batteries, so rechargeable batteries are always a good option.

Haven't been disappointed with these at all. Came already charged, and ready to put straight in to desired devices.

Capacity has been great so far - a few toys, like remote control cars go through batteries very easily, and these have lasted very well.

At this price, it's hard to argue against how good value these batteries are - highly recommended.


Ultrasport Indoor Trampoline Jumper 4.6 ft (140 cm) - Red/Blue
Ultrasport Indoor Trampoline Jumper 4.6 ft (140 cm) - Red/Blue
Price: £76.11

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good trampoline, 25 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this for use by my 4 year old and 2 year old sons - looked a decent size, as definitely don't (yet) need one of the very big trampolines that dominate so many back gardens.

Took about half an hour to 45 minutes to assemble. It's fairly straightforward in terms of the parts that are there, all fits together in a fairly straightforward way.

Instructions are reasonably good - but lacking in a couple of areas. There are a couple of steps that are tricky, even with the explanation, and the small black and white picture beside it (which is generally good enough for most steps, but not clear or detailed enough for a couple of points).

Also found the linking of the jump mat to the frame difficult - it takes a lot of effort to hook the elastic loops round the frame, and often feels like one of your fingers is at severe risk each time you pop one of the loops through. There are about 30 odd of these wee loops too, so my fingers were struggling by the time I finished.

Once it's built, it seems pretty solid. The work on the tension loops pays off, as it's nice, springing but firm mat. The mesh and foam round the poles make it feel pretty safe, and the mesh is both screwed in at the top, and further secured with velcro at the top.

So the kids have great fun, and seem pretty safe and secure. A highly recommended product, just missing out on 5 stars due to the difficulty of certain parts of the installation, and the somewhat untidy appearance of the protective foam mat round the side, which doesn't really seem to hook round underneath the trampoline properly. (there would really have to be velcro to give it the neat and tidy appearance shown on the photo).
