5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me have a nice glow, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying this my favourite fake tan , buying off Amazon direct saves money.

It is the only formula I just apply for half an hour and shower off , couple of hours later, I am lovely and golden. As it is developing even after rinsing off.

I have spoken to friends to wear it overnight in bed but the top coat feels yukky and sticky and would badly stain the bedclothes, plus it says keep on 4 hours tops then rinse colour guide off.

And I have never had an allergic reaction like I did with the No7 one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good healing ointment, use sparingly, 11 Jan. 2016

In use for tattoo healing it is fab.

I put my tube in the fridge thinking it would be cooler on the skin but it then didnt squeeze out the tube and the formula doesnt like sudden changes to temperature. It ended up clogged and couldnt get it to come out, but that was my fault. Very soothing on the skin .

3.0 out of 5 stars Handy for your 1st aid kit, 11 Jan. 2016

I dont know why the picture shows a little dispenser as all that arrives is the roll itself. The image is for illustration only.

It adheres to skin well and held bandage on.

The gauze felt quite rough on my skin but it was useful for padding over a wound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and attractive design too, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Washes up well and keeps its colour. Stains come out and it is very practical and fuss free doesnt need ironing. Dries fast so no need to use tumble drier either. I shake it after I machine wash it and put it over my table again and its dry within about an hour .

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy for travel, 11 Jan. 2016

It's great and made slightly oversized for your size, just so you can wear normal clothes under it. It is great that is is foldaway and truly does keep wind and rain off you no leaks no wet shoulders, every car should have a couple in the glovebox and in school bags and rucksacks for unexpected downpours .It is thin and unlined and merely a protector from rain but in my opinion superior to a brolly and your upper torso and hair stays bone dry , as little adjusters under chin to tighten hood right up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cosy a bit bulky though, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My particular jacket fitted well the fleece makes the armholes feel bulky and is exposed a bit at my wrists. I like the zipping pockets and chest pocket and the adjusters kept me bone dry.

However, maybe I had a faulty one as the main zip would not do up very well, standing up trying four or five times asking a friend to help. It eventually zipped up I thought it was just stiff cos it was new and to persevere as it was a good price paid compared to the RRP .

Tried jacket on a few more times but sadly , the zip even though lined up and straight was jamming at the start , I was thinking I dont want it to break so dont want to pull too much.

I have now returned it for a refund, after a couple of days of "zip frustration", I own several other variant of Regatta jackets/fleeces and all of the zips are ace , so I think it was just bad luck .

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value earphones, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The buds fell out when I put my hood up on a rainy day ,the rubber has a sheen off of it and doesnt grip the ear as much as I would like.

The sound is good , the little clip didnt seem to work it kept falling open.

Taking a while getting the wire straight leaving on coffee table stretched out overnight and the wire was still a bit twisted looking.

But they look nice and they work well with my devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thick hair dries quickly, 1 Dec. 2015
I have to be fair and honest here so, it looks lovely colour-wise and it does dry hair quickly and eliminates a fair bit of frizz. Thick hair like mine takes an age to dry usually so I get good results using this hairdryer.

However a couple of points to mention. I dry my own hair and using it for even a couple of minutes use, my left arm is agony and cos the dryer is so heavy, my arm "goes to sleep" holding it. I am fairly fit and healthy and have no underlying arthritic or muscular conditions. But I have to keep switching it off and shaking the circulation back into my really sore cramping arm. I am surprised no other ladies are saying this : it weighs a bloomin' tonne!

Also, I was very worried .I used the highest heat setting today briefly, and I burnt my scalp! OMG I thought some of the hair on the back of my scalp had went on fire. So hot I got a a bit of a fright and I think it is because there was metal on my round brush and it heated up . I would be worried someone could have an injury on the high setting which I am dubious about using that setting again. My gold chain necklace that I wear also heated up with the hot air blasting. I advise you to remove jewellery for safety's sake when using it .

I feel it doesn't represent true value for money, is bulky and it feels like am holding up a house brick and its a scalding risk too. The 3 stars are because it does appear to reduce frizz and hair feels softer.
