Linens Limited 100% Egyptian Cotton Bath Robe, Chocolate, Large
Offered by Linens Limited
Price: 24.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Too small, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the largest available size but it's both too short and too narrow to cover my slim 6'4" frame. Knees exposed and sometimes opens up at the front with little advance warning. Plus the towelling material started to unravel shortly after purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for travels or the office, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this product to use on a 6 month trip to SE Asia. Great design, works as a cafetiere and also as a thermos type cup for keeping cold drinks cold in up to 40 degree heat. Survived being bashed around in a rucksack for 6 months without any damage.

Upon returning to UK I use this in the office so I can get a great cup of coffee through the day with minimal washing up.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect design, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Several products available but only this one had hooks rather than suction cups. I could always find somewhere to erect this product whilst on the road, but would have had difficulties if I had opted for the suction cup design instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars tablets crumbled to dust, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tablets crumbled to dust inside the sealed plastic container; I had to purchase some empty gel caps and fill them with said dust in order to ingest the product. Better caking agents required!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for saving space but vulnerable to water ingress, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely better than carting a full can of shaving foam on your travels, but the box is not watertight and only a couple of drops of water will cause all the leaves inside to stick together. A useful addition to your travel toiletry bag but you need to be very careful where you leave it to avoid water penetration.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for travelling, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World Time Alarm Clock + LED Torch
Bought this for a 6 month round the world trip. The built-in torch, time zone function and thermometer were incredibly useful; batteries lasted the whole trip; the unit is very robust and the lanyard is handy.


Puma Foundation Swimming Trunks Mens Black Large

2.0 out of 5 stars Shape risks indecent exposure, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Material is fine and it fits my waist and butt ok, but there is insufficient room around the crotch and the leg openings are not tight enough. I only wore the item once and had several embarrassing moments when my balls fell out through the leg hole.

Do not wear around children.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a great design, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality is fine, but getting the phone in and out of the plastic 'grip' is fiddly and I worry about damage to the phone. The magnetic flap is attached to the 'phone' side of the case and not the front cover as in the image, so gets in the way of your ear when you're making a call. Finally the pressure of the front cover is sufficient to answer phone calls on my behalf whilst the phone is in the case.

Would not buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little fiddly - but effective!, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite many reviews here and elsewhere describing this product as 'ineffective' I have to disagree. Whilst it can be fiddly gripping hair right at the point it meets the skin, it was surprisingly effective in preventing regrowth. I use it at the highest setting, taking around 25-30 seconds per hair; there's a bit of a tingle and a slight red mark after pulling the hair but after ~6 weeks I've had only around 10% of treated hairs grow back. Using regular tweezers they return after a week or so. Way cheaper and maybe even quicker than professional electrolysis.

3.0 out of 5 stars More 'scooped' than indicated by image, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ribbed material is great but the chest is much more 'scooped' than in the pictures, extending way down the chest. Not a great look unless you're a body builder!
