Woly Brilliant Shine Spray 250ml
Woly Brilliant Shine Spray 250ml

Price: £8.49

4.0 out of 5 stars A SHINING EXAMPLE, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woly Brilliant Shine Spray 250ml
Prompt delivery, and the product seemingly seals, protects, and puts a sheen on leather shoes, in my case in the colours of dark brown and black, very effectively. However, the cost does seem a tad 'high end' in comparison with other alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ECONOMIC TALE FOR ALL, 4 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good, well researched, interesting economic and social snapshot of the commercial ups and downs of New York City in the second half of the 20th century and start of the 21st century.

It deals with the transition of a predominantly manufacturing driven economy into that of Financial Services, and Tourism, and the social changes entailed. The author having given a broad brush narrative to each stage of the transition, engagingly uses the stories of a wide and diverse range of individuals involved in the evolution to illustrate the consequences of the changes, which engages the reader in the story, as opposed to it being a typical prosaic economic treatise.

A useful book for those NYC adherents that would like to gain an insight into this great metroplex's retrenchment from an immigrant led manufacturing titan into becoming a financial services and banking colossus, and tourist honeypot.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE PRICE OF PRETENSION, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From after only a weeks daily use of this product it is clear that it holds your tan in place, is a good skin cream, and smells most pleasant. Whether it warrants the increased cost over other similar products is debatable, but hell in the 'vain-and-glorious' stakes does it matter?

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT SO QUICK, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe quick if you are a crossword buff with a huge knowledge and vocabulary base but for the average Joe such as myself, it is not that quick and necessitates some reference to the answer section at the back of the book. Also found a number of printing or layout errors which makes it even more difficult to complete the puzzle in question. Overall though it provides a good way of passing the time and hopefully staving off any onset of dementia.

5.0 out of 5 stars SERVING TO PERFECTION, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely brilliant dishes for oven to table use or purely just for attractive serving purposes, that are in daily use in our household. However, do take note of the maximum temperature usage. We didn't and cracked the dish necessitating this new one which doesn't come cheaply.

2.0 out of 5 stars A PUN TOO FAR, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a disappointment! Having really enjoyed 5000 One-Liners by the same compiler, finding many that made me laugh out loud, I was eager to read this follow-up. However, having gone through thoroughly the first 30 pages and randomly thereafter the entire book, I was not induced to raise one single laugh, smile, or inward wash of pleasure, which indicates to me thajt the first edition obviously exhausted up the entire agglomeration of rib-tickling one-liners and puns.

1.0 out of 5 stars TOP QUALITY BUT RIDICULOUS DELIVERY CHARGE, 10 April 2015
We are great enthusiasts of Regina Camomile Toilet paper, as it is by far and away the best on the market, in terms of useability, comfort, and strength. One has to use far less to achieve cleanliness, than most other brands, and therefore it proves to be the best value for money around. For these reasons we have no hesitation in giving the very best rating for this super product.

However, despite the cost here of the actual being 20% or so more than your local supermarket prices, the delivery charge quoted ie. £11.98 is incredible and, frankly usurious, totally unjustifiable, and mind-boggling!

Accordingly, and with some regret, despite the high quality and excellent value of the paper, the delivery charge is so horrendous and we cannot, in all consciousness, give anymore than the very lowest rating. Pity as it is an unbeatable product.

If anyone connected with the sellers here of this toilet paper, wishes to challenge our rating then please explain why in the 'Comment' facility and not rubbish our review with an 'Unhelpful' vote. Thank you.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A light, seemingly sturdily made umbrella with an amazingly efficient and speedy mechanism for raising it. If it proves long term to be robust and I can for the first time in 50 years manage not leave it on public transport, restaurants etc., then I'll be well pleased

2.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BE DAFT ENOUGH TO ......, 6 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
.....assume this gadget will be your answer to extracting halogen ceiling fitted bulbs effortlessly, because it doesn't. You will still need to get your stepladder in from the garage or balance precariously on a chair to remove the bulb after several attempts, if you are lucky, and finish up sweating profusely and with aching arms. Whoever designed the ceiling fitting and bulb needs to stand up publicly an apologise for, perhaps the worst example ever of practicable and usable design in the home today.

This review is from: Xeno Ultra (Toy)
This quirky little ugly 'goblin' animated toy given as a Christmas present to a 7 year old granddaughter, was obviously greatly enjoyed given the time it was played with.
