4.0 out of 5 stars Higb speed, squeaky clean, 1 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been impressed with this Philips Sonicare sonic toothbrush. The key difference with sonic toothbrushes is that the heads vibrate imperceptibly at a very high speed; just a very light touch is required to ensure effective cleaning. With 3 different speeds to suit your preference, it has a nice comfortable grip to make it easy to control, even with a wet hand. Every 30 seconds the sound of the toothbrush briefly changes, and after 2 minutes it will automatically stop, as per recommended brushing time. My only niggle with this rechargeable toothbrush is that I find it very tickly on the roof of you mouth when cleaning the upper teeth. Other than that, it does leave your teeth feeling squeeky clean!


Braun Silk Epil 5-541 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator with Shaver Head
Braun Silk Epil 5-541 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator with Shaver Head
Price: £53.33

4.0 out of 5 stars ... is very simple and effective to use with a nice non-slip grip when using it in the shower/bath, 18 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This wet and dry epilator and shaver is very simple and effective to use with a nice non-slip grip when using it in the shower/bath. Using the shaver to first trim the hairs to the same length you then use the epilator to the "pluck" them out; the heads are easily interchangeable. When using the epliator there is a sharp tingling feeling but when used more regularly this reduces (or you just get used to the sensation) - overall am pleased with this device.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lounder, cleaner, crisper and fuller sounds, 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have never completely restrung my guitar, only replacing a string when it breaks, but it was about time I did a full set. I liked the sound of the guitar, but after many years of occasionally playing I thought it was due for a re-furb. Replacing the strings was straight-forward - looked at some tips from the internet and was happy with the technique.

However, and this was a big learning for me, the strings need to be stretched when new - mainly the larger, wire-bound ones. When I first played the guitar it sounded tinny and awful - surely new strings don't sound this bad? Well, more internet searching and yes, you need to stretch the strings to help them blend in and mellow. So now, after 2 weeks and a few goes at stretching them, they sound much, much better, not perfect, but getting there.

Compared to my old strings the sounds are much fuller and clearer, harmonics are easier to achieve and the all-around sound is crisper and louder (when required) - next time I will not leave getting a new set of strings so long, and I am very pleased with these ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound protection, but a little uncomfortable, 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very large, waterproof car seat protector, ideal for covering when the occupants are wet/damp/dirty, so this applies for pets and kids alike! It attaches around the rear headrests via a standard adjustable clip/strap, and has a couple of slots for the seatbelts to poke through. There are also a couple of strips underneath to push through between the seat and back support, just to keep it in place on the seat. The rest of the seat cover can then just flop over the rest of the seat and down to the floor. As shown in the picture, it is possible to fasten the other end to the front seat headrests, thereby making more of a hammock arrangement.
Protection-wise, it is excellent, quite hard-wearing and waterproof and does what it says, protects the seat from dog hairs etc. It is a little uncomfortable if you decide to leave it on all the time and sit on it for longer journeys, as it is loose on the seat. One other minor comment is that the gap for the seat belts is only just wide enough for my car (which is slightly wider than standard cars) - it still fits though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Undone is not really done!, 3 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughter has been using this for the last couple of weeks and she said that her hair seemed softer but it didn't seem to make much difference to the waviness of her hair. Even though the shampoo was nice to use, for her, it just seemed like another type of shampoo - sorry but the "undone weightless" claim if the shampoo was missed by her.


Science in Sport 60 ml Energy Gel Variety - Pack of 7
Science in Sport 60 ml Energy Gel Variety - Pack of 7
Price: £3.30

3.0 out of 5 stars Subtle flavours and strange texture, 15 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is my first experience of Isotonic Gel so did not know what to expect. This pack of 7 flavour variety gels should give you a good sample of what an isotonic gel can do for you. They are easy to open and you simply squeeze out the contents into your mouth. Texture-wise they are like a soft purée, which I found a little strange at first, and the taste is subtle; not sweet or overpowering. They are not thirst-quenching, so I found I had to drink some water as well (although you can get SiS GO Hydro or SiS GO Electrolyte for fluid intake also). Although I like the idea of these gels I am quite happy with standard isotonic drinks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best!, 1 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the best vacuum cleaner we have ever had - and we have had a fair few.

The main plus points:
- very powerful
- fairly quite (for a vacuum cleaner)
- good combination of effective heads (no gizmos)
- simple and clear way to change the power (I like the little orange light too)
- long power cable means I can plug it in downstairs and I can vacuum the whole house (upstairs and downstairs) without having to unplug
Negative points:
- struggling to find any - slightly heavier than others we have had

Just briefly expanding on the above, given it is just 800watts, it will lift the carpet off the floor - very powerful!!! There is a lot of hype of the bag-less cleaners, but in all honesty, the 2 best vacuum's I have had (including this one) were both bagged cleaners. The bag-less ones need to be constantly emptied and cleaned otherwise they lose their power (and I have tried Vax, Electrolux and Hoover before).

The heads/brushes are very good - they tilt and swivel easily and to a good angle, which means I find it is good for cleaning up the stairs and underneath furniture. The very large hard-floor head is excellent as it cleans in double quick time (and it does not lose power with the larger head either). All the tubes and heads simply click/un-click into place (no more having to firmly push/pull/twist into place to hope they stay in place)

Overall, I cannot fault this vacuum - totally 5 stars from me *****


Revlon Blush Brush

Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Soft but firm, 10 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Revlon Blush Brush (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Revlon blush brush is a very nice product. The bristles are soft but still provide a firm application. The head-size is also good as it allows a good sweep of colour, plus the handle is of a good length for use. As it is black in colour it does not appear to get so dirty, but having said that it cleans easily. Overall, a very nice blush brush.

4.0 out of 5 stars One squirt and it's off!, 10 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Dettol spray cleaner does exactly what you want - a few quick squirts onto a surface, wipe over with a damp cloth to leave a sparkly clean surface with a nice hint of lemon scent. On our hob it worked well, and better than our standard Tesco surface cleaner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive competitor to GoPro, 16 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am really pleased with this, my first waterproof video camera. My experiences echo many others, no memory card, lots of attachments and with the instructions and default language was German, although I managed to find the manual on-line which included English. It is very simple to use, scrolling through the options and then either recording video or taking photos.

Battery like is claimed to be an hour - so far it is holding up ok but I tend to recharge, through the PC USB, before it runs out, so cannot verify exactly. Build quality is rugged and the attachments are straight forward to use. Picture quality is fine also.

One minor niggle for me is that the many attachments don't include a curved/adhesive pad as the GoPro does, which would be perfect when I go kayaking; I could fix it to my helmet though.
