Murad Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo
Murad Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo
Price: £48.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Very pricey for what it is, 31 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The first step cream has a very subtle pleasant smell (apricot I think) and the scrub crystals get to work effectively leaving the skin feeling smooth and shiny after the 10minute wait and warm water rinse. So the second step (the cream to seal off the freshly scrubbed skin surface) seems essential especially if you have delicate complexion. You're left with a fresh clean sensation after the treatment and the skin feels smooth and well hydrated. The process of scrubbing and degreasing I guess is what reduces blackheads, but considering the problem is one which mostly affects younger people (most don't have the money) and men (spend less on expensive cosmetics) the cost is off putting surely whatever the potential result. There are cheaper scrubs out there for the frequent user.


Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Scrub 150ml
Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Scrub 150ml
Price: £4.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 31 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good facial wash/scrub that doesn't feel too oily when using it. Some scrub washes feel too greasy to leave your skin feeling clean, this one does the job it's supposed to and feels refreshing after.


Marvel 75th Anniversary Omnibus
Marvel 75th Anniversary Omnibus
by Roger Stern
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £66.90

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully bound, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made, chunky beautiful to look at book. The reproductions of the various older issues are superb. It really does bring back some memories. The only thing I would have liked to see perhaps is a better demarcation between each issue so the book could feel more like a collection individual comic books as opposed to one very large continuous reprint, excellent quality though it is.

Nespresso compatible Coffee Pod Holder And Stand With Drawer Holds Up To 48 Pods With Free Milk Frother Included
Offered by Direct online Houseware
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for the more compact Nespresso machines, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compact, discreet and perfect if you're short of worktop space in your kitchen. Well made, solid sturdy and practical and can be used with most Nespresso compatible pods (except for Cafepod, or Lidl ones, obviously because of the wrapper ... Unless you unwrap them all first) : I've used it for Nespresso, Taylor's of Harrogate, and Cafe Tutto pods. Good price. What's not to like.


The Strain - Season 1 [DVD]
The Strain - Season 1 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Corey Stoll
Offered by 666 Media
Price: £25.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as sinister as the novel, but still very good, 29 Aug. 2015
This review is from: The Strain - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I preferred the more mysterious menacing way that the book started and the characters more enigmatic. The screenplay has more humour but it takes away the sinister slower build up of the horror of the novel. Also ... The Master is just not scary enough on TV compared to reading. Nevertheless the faster pace probably works better on TV and I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. I watched it on subscription streaming NowTV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 27 Aug. 2015
This is the best Mahler 9 recording I've heard in years. The way Sir Mark holds the musical narrative and coherence of structure, a very difficult task in such a large slow build-up work, is awesome. The crystal clear sound of the recording brings out the velvety timbre of the Hallé strings and the beautiful articulate winds, whilst delivering heart stopping sound from the skilful and big brass section which are also a hallmark of this Orchestra for me. A must have CD.

Ross Henery Professional, 5 Piece Premium, High Grade, High Carbon, 5Cr15MoV Stainless Steel, Kitchen Knife Set in 100% Solid Bamboo Block
Price: £64.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Super sharp, 24 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The bamboo block looks really smart. The knives are very very sharp. Not for the clumsy cook I hasten to add, you could easily cut yourself .... The finish on the wooden handles is very clean and an elegant design, feels very comfortable to hold. They need to be washed promptly after use and dried and put away to make sure you keep an even sheen on the metal

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite mesmerising, 22 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautifully sung and very tastefully staged production. The first act, in less masterful hands than Gatti's, can drag if a conductor and cast aren't up to the job, but the ensemble here is astonishingly good. It's the first time I can say I have been able to get how innovative Wagner's music is in Parsifal, even by Wagner's own standard.

I particularly love the Act 2 stage design, and Klingsor is suitable evil and mesmerising in the opening scene. I like the way Gatti just launches the orchestra into act 2 as soon as comes into the orchestra and takes to the podium to enthusiastic applause.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 22 Aug. 2015
This brand I s a perfect alternative to nespresso pods. There is no wasteful annoying pod wrapping like the Cafépod, and the coffee is lovely. Intense and flavoursome with the tasting notes, on the back of the box, bang on.


PRO PLAN Cat LIGHT with OPTI-LIGHT Rich in Turkey, 3kg
PRO PLAN Cat LIGHT with OPTI-LIGHT Rich in Turkey, 3kg
Price: £17.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite hit, 21 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There aren't many types of dry food my cat likes, but this pro plan variety is a great find. As soon as I poured it into his dish, he was smelling the air, came to his dish and started munching away happily. Usually he sniffs a bit, walks away and might try some but he always prefers the wet food. Last night o tested by placing wet and dry food out, and he mostly ate the pro plan, and only tiny bit of his favourite wet food.
