Philips SC1983/00 Lumea Essential IPL Hair Removal System for Face and Body
Philips SC1983/00 Lumea Essential IPL Hair Removal System for Face and Body
Price: £199.99

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, 18 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you are after a quick fix, this is not it. Philips state that there will be a 75% reduction in hair growth after 8 weeks of use. Within the first month it is weekly, then one every two weeks, then once a month. You cannot use it with certain skin types and it takes longer than it states in the instructions. However unlike some other treatments, this is painless. This said, after a few weeks there have been some noticeable results and I hope to update this again after some more treatments.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This looks good, however it is big. Is it not something you could pop in the cupboard (unless you had massive cupboards, obviously). It is more of a worktop item. It has a good motor and two settings (one for harder fruit & veg). The instructions are rubbish and seem to be written by someone with a rather vague grasp of the English language, however it is pretty easy to work out what to do. It juices fast and well and does not leave much mess. It is pretty easy to clean too. Recommended.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a man who has always struggled to grow a beard, I recently had a few weeks off work and managed to sprout a quite impressive amount of unruly growth. This has a trimmer option and also a shaver option. I tried the trimmer option (it has varying lengths which you can select easily) and it trimmed with no problems. After the couple of weeks I decided enough was enough and used the shave option to remove the small caterpillar that had been germinating on my upper lip. The shaver got rid of it perfectly, with not problems and left my skin very smooth. It may struggle with men with proper beards and those who grow one in days, but for my weedy attempts it was perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but amazing, 17 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is expensive, there is no getting away from that. I reviewed this with trepidation as I had only ever bought pretty cheap irons before and had always had a love/hate relationship with them. I hated them and loved it when I didn't have to use them. But this iron can change your mind about ironing. It is light, heats up quick, and when it is ready to go it really does go. It cuts through creases in no time, and glides over the clothes in no time. The heat is automatic, so you can actually leave it flat down and not burn the ironing board (which I tend to do often as I struggle to get the item in the position I want it to be in). This actually made ironing bearable to me. It is a fantastic iron and has won awards for best product. If you are after an iron and can afford the hefty price, then you should look no further as this is an excellent iron.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is ideal for nursery and school starters of 3-4 rather than the 1-5 on the box. It has toys and activity sheets for each of the 10 day countdown and will help a little one prepare for the big day of starting school or nursery as they do struggle with the concept of time at that age. It is well presented and nicely packaged and would make an ideal gift for little ones of that age.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, 7 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Feels nice to apply and you can actually feel your face tightening, however after a couple of weeks there is no visible change at all. There is not much information with the product, with a couple of tiny lines saying apply twice a day. It looks cheap, which it shouldn't given its price tag. If you are desperate to try this out, then go for it. Otherwise I would recommend you look elsewhere for an alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy, 20 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's nice and small, which means it takes up no room at all. The instructions were not very clear, but it was easy enough to work out which parts fit together. It is hand powered, which means no batteries. It is small, which means it's only really suitable for small items like garlic or chilli. It chops these perfectly well, and is particularly useful as you don't get the smell (of garlic) or the heat (of chilli) on your hands. You can do larger items, but there's not really any point. By the time you've chopped an onion to be small enough to go into the chopper, you might as well finish the job manually. It's easy to clean, and is even dishwasher safe. If you use ingredients like garlic or chilli, or other small items that need chopping, I would recommend this as it's really useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hair reduction..., 8 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My partner tested this out for me, as I am a man and I didn't particularly want to lose any hair permanently. This is an important point as it is not permanent removal, but permanent reduction. It is easy to use, however may take 12 weeks to show any effects, and you will still need to shave. It is also difficult to tell where you have used the device, especially on larger areas, like legs. After over a month slight effects were noticed, but will have to update the review to day what else has happened after 12 weeks+. It is a proved technique in salons, so I am sure there will be a noticeable difference. It is also very expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fun for little ones, 8 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd never heard of these before, but then one day my sister in Canada asked me to buy some for my niece's birthday. I then got the opportunity to try these out in the UK and immediately gave them to my 6 year old daughter to test run. They were a huge success. She loved building various structures and buildings, however they are not as sturdy as the description claims, and I would say that younger children would get frustrated with their creations falling down if they were a little clumsy. I would recommend 4+ years for these. They are also quite expensive too, which does take a star off. But they are a lot of fun for a suitably aged child.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you are after an expresso machine, then look no further. This is the machine you are looking for. Easy to set up, fast to heat up, fast to cool down, and the best expresso you will find except if you grind the beans yourself. It also looks great too. No negatives at all. Highly recommended.
