Greenpan Venice 24 cm Ceramic Non-Stick Open Frypan, Grey Aluminium
Greenpan Venice 24 cm Ceramic Non-Stick Open Frypan, Grey Aluminium
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Built to last, perfect frying results and easy to clean too, 16 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This a weighty and well made pan that is built to last for years. It is quite small and the heat is distributed evenly and it's ideal for frying eggs, bacon, meatballs, etc. It cleans so easily - before giving it the once over in the washing-up bowl, just wipe it with some kitchen roll and it's like new with none of the black residue you sometimes get from aluminium pans. To show an indication of its size and how easy it is to clean, I've uploaded some photos (see Product Images from Customers).


Clarins - Gentle Foaming Cleanser With Shea Butter (Dry/ Sensitive Skin) - 125ml/4.4oz
Clarins - Gentle Foaming Cleanser With Shea Butter (Dry/ Sensitive Skin) - 125ml/4.4oz
Offered by MUST PERFUMES
Price: £19.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality face cleanser, 16 Oct 2014
I can't find fault with this cleanser and can see a definite improvement in my overall complexion in the couple of months I've been using it. It is expensive but a 125ml tube lasts for 3-4 months - it foams up really easily and you only need to use a tiny amount each time to cleanse your face and neck. Clarins are giving their men's range of skincare products a big push in Debenhams at the moment, but I'll be sticking with this. Definitely recommended and worth the outlay.


Karin Herzog Essential Mask Hydrating Face Mask 50 ml
Karin Herzog Essential Mask Hydrating Face Mask 50 ml
Price: £52.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional DIY skin care but exceptional price too, 9 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After using this four times in the past forthight and expending the full 50ml in the process, I can confidently state that this is a high end face mask that works so much better than the Simple one I occasionally use. And it should do given the £45+ price difference.

I applied it each time a couple of hours after having a wet shave (to give my skin time to recover from the shave) and left it on for the recommended 10 minutes and then rinsed it off. Wow! My skin felt so much better and smoother and I was amazed at how clear my complexion looked. Not as good as if I'd visited a salon but not a million miles away. It's easy to apply using your fingertips (I binned the applicator supplied), doesn't irritate the skin and you can almost feel it going to work immediately - it doesn't just sit on your skin and dry out,

The only problem is the price. For the same £50+ asking price at the time of writing I could visit a salon once a fortnight (50ml is a two week supply if used twice weekly as suggested in the directions) and get the full works - exfoliating, deep cleanse, face mask and a neck & shoulder massage and I think that in the longer term a salon visit will possibly be the better option for anyone who spends this sort of money on their skin care. If it was half the price I'd definitely use it on a regular basis.


Philips BT9280/33 Series 9000 Laser Guided Beard Trimmer
Philips BT9280/33 Series 9000 Laser Guided Beard Trimmer
Price: £79.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent trimmer but useless bling, 3 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the EXACT same trimmer as the Philips Style Xpert BT5260/33 Precision Beard Trimmer but with added bling.

Without any attachments it's a perfect beard trimmer. I have an aggressive stubble and this can glide through 3 weeks worth of growth effortlessly leaving me with an even finish and about 2-3 days worth of stubble. I have no need for the attachments but according to some of the reviews for the BT5260/33 trimmer it falls short of the standard of cut expected for a trimmer in this price range when using them.

It's ergonomically sound, built to last and it's easy to switch between the 17 length settings (0.4mm-7mm) using the rotating adjuster on the handle. The head is rotatable and when rotated there's a smaller head for refined trimming purposes. It takes about 90 minutes to charge from empty and the battery life is extremely impressive and lasts long enough for 6-7 complete trims. It's waterproof and the head can be removed for cleaning purposes.

The added bling on this model are the digital display on the rotating adjuster and the laser. The digital display is no improvement on the analogue display on the BT5260/33 trimmer because it does the exact same job, no better or worse. I was looking forward to the laser guided technology on this - Philips claim that it'll make it easy to achieve a symmetrical trim and I though it'd be handy for trimming my stubble but leaving some cool retro sideburns or a perfect goatee. Unfortunately, all it does is beam a straight red laser line onto your face directly where the trimmer will make contact with your face and that's it. It's just as easy to see where the trimmer is going to cut without it. And as it only shines above where the trimmer is going to cut and not simultaneously on both sides of your face, it's impossible to use it to match up both sides to get the symmetrical trim that Philips claim it will help you achieve. The laser only works when using the the trimmer without any attachments and you can opt to leave it switched off.

In summary, if you want to cut your stubble back to 2-3 days worth of growth and value a long battery life then this is a fine trimmer. However, save yourself £40 and get the BT5260/33 trimmer because the laser on this trimmer is just bling for the sake of bling and adds NOTHING whatsoever to the experience.


Rare Psych Moogs And Brass - Music From The Sonotron Library 1969 to 1981
Rare Psych Moogs And Brass - Music From The Sonotron Library 1969 to 1981
Price: £12.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Funk. Jazz and Psychedelic grooves from the Sonoton vaults, 2 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of library tracks sees Buried Treasure deliberately eschewing the more conservative sounds associated with Sonoton and instead gathering together some killer sounds recorded for the label between 1969 and 1981. Despite the brief playing time of 42:11, this is one of the best library compilations I've heard in a long time. As the title suggest, there's plenty of moog and brass but the heavy bass, synths and phased fuzz guitars stand out too. There are some really cool synthesized funk, moody jazz vibes and big band sounds to be heard and a lot of these songs wouldn't have sounded out of place on Italian soundtracks from the same period. The quality does not falter for a single moment. Funky, groovy, jazzy, psychedelic and quite often playful, this is a must for 1970's library music and Italian soundtrack aficionados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sound + Vision (Audio CD)
This is a very welcome reissue of this superb chronological overview of Bowie's career between 1969 and 1993. Hits, outtakes, live tracks, alternate versions, album tracks and Tin Machine too - there's something for everyone. It's also excellent value: 70 tracks across 4 CDs with a playback time of 4 hours and 58 minutes (and AutoRip if purchased direct from Amazon). The CDs are housed inside an old style double CD jewel case with a cardboard slipcase cover. There's also an accompanying 56 page booklet with very lengthy sleeve notes and archive photos. It also includes all of the recording dates, release dates and musicians involved for each track. It might not be as up to date as the forthcoming 'Nothing Has Changed' compilation but it represents amazing value for money and should appeal to existing Bowie fans and newcomers too.


Skechers Men's Diameter Heisman Half Shoe
Skechers Men's Diameter Heisman Half Shoe
Price: £35.99 - £69.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and comfortable shoes, 30 Sep 2014
These are a stylish and very comfortable pair of shoes with a well cushioned sole. Of the colours available, I think 'Braun' looks the best - in this colour they look cool with blue stressed denim and you don't need to worry about them getting scuffed or marked because it just gives them a lived-in, rustic look without leaving them looking scruffy. After 6 months I haven't cleaned mine (and I don't ever intend to) and they look great. I'm a size 8 and they were a tight fit but size 9 fitted perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and can be used with ALL Oral-B toothbrush heads, 21 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been using Oral-B toothbrushes for years and the oscillating action is really smooth and comfortable and leaves your mouth and teeth refreshed and clean. This model comes with the Tri-Zone head that allows you to brush your teeth as if you were using a manual toothbrush. I don't find it as effective as the oscillating action but the good news is that ALL Oral-B Pro toothbrushes heads fit this handle and function as normal. In effect, this brush gets its name from the one toothbrush head that comes in the box. I've switched to an oscillating head and it works just fine.

It has the now standard Oral-B features of the brief pause every 30 seconds and the utterly pointless pressure sensor (you have to forcibly push so hard for it to illuminate that the motor slows down). There's also a 'Gum Care' mode where the motor is slowed down and it sort of pulsates against your gums. To be honest, I found it a bit gimmicky and the main cleaning mode should take care of most people's needs.

The handle is slim and ergonomically sound. You'll need to leave it charging overnight to get a full charge - it takes 12-15 hours - and when fully charged I've been getting SIX days use when using it TWICE daily for 2 minutes each time. The instructions do recommend storing the handle on the charging unit to maintain full power and that "overcharging is impossible".

Overall this is a very good toothbrush and if you don't like the manual brushing style using the Tri-Zone head, you can use an oscillating one instead.

AmazonBasics 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with UK Plug
AmazonBasics 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with UK Plug
Price: £13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value USB hub, 17 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I plugged this into my dual-boot laptop running Windows 7 and Ubuntu and it was recognised and ready to use immediately with both operating systems. For basic things - Bluetooth adapter, portable hard drive, wireless mouse adapter - it doesn't need the power supply and copes with no problems. When charging my Bluetooth speaker, I plugged in the power supply and there was a noticeable uplift in the charging time. Well made and compact, the removable power lead is plenty log enough but if you like a tidy desktop with all cables hidden, you might find the 9" length of the fixed USB lead a bit underwhelming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good but very expensive too, 17 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an ideal size (1.9 litre capacity) for 2-3 adults. It works more or less like a glass Pyrex dish except that it's a lot lighter. It's perfect for things like fish pie, cottage pie, shepherd's pie, etc. and these take the same time to cook as when using a Pyrex dish. The thing I like best about it is the clip on lid - you can prepare a meal the day before and leave it in the fridge with the lid on and it'll stay fresh, not leave a smell in the fridge and you can pop it straight into the oven the following day. You could also use the lid to keep leftovers fresh but that's never a problem in my household...

The plastic lid cannot be used in the oven but you can crimp foil over the top using the ridge for the lid should you need to cover anything. Cleaning wise, it needs to be left to soak after use. Overall this is a very good dish but it's also VERY expensive compared to a Pyrex dish with a lid. Quality: 5 stars; Value: 2 stars; Overall rating: 3½ stars.
