5.0 out of 5 stars Bigger and better than Sterets, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use these swabs to prepare the skin for medication dispensed through patches. I have ordered Sterets before and they are fine but really small, these Alcotip swabs are more than twice as big and moister. I would choose these again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value product, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this double socket 2m mains extension lead from Homestar Supplies and it came promptly. The model supplied was not identical to the picture but it did have an LED power indicator and is of good quality for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best body lotion ever!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I started using the Jergens Aloe Lotion during the 10 years I lived in the USA and it became a staple item for me. It's far better than anything you'll find in a big pump bottle in Boots (and better than their own lotion in a tube which is more widely available here in the UK). Even at imported prices it's great value and I still can't live without it!

4.0 out of 5 stars WIDE fitting, 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The boots are smart and sturdy as you'd expect from Caterpillar. There is no width fitting option listed on amazon, so I assumed they'd be standard width but when they arrived they were WIDE, as I have narrow feet this wasn't ideal but in no way reflects on the quality of the boots, it's just a 'need to know'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes, 21 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is great as far as it goes - the spiral binding allows it to lay flat and the scale is large enough to glance at while driving (which is what I bought it for), however it doesn't quite go all the way out to the M25 ring which may be a pain if you live near the edge of the zone covered as I do. I run out of map to the northwest beyond my homepage and sincerely wish it covered Uxbridge, Northwood, Watford, Bushey and Borehamwood - but it doesn't, and its similarly curtailed all around London; Chingford is in but Loughton is out, Dagenham is in but Romford and Hornchurch are out, Bexley is in but Dartford is out, Chislehurst and Farnborough are half in and Orpington is out, Croydon is mostly in but Purley is out, Carshalton is in, Sutton is cut in half and Ewell is out, Surbiton is in but Esher, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and Chertsey are all out, Ashford is in but Staines is out. You'll know whether these limits are sufficient for your purposes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not All That, 21 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Caribbean Holiday (Audio CD)
If you intend to play this on a crappy boombox for a backyard barbecue then you'll probably not mind the poor quality of the recording. If you're hoping for the richness and aural depth of a real steel band then you won't find it here - this disc sounds like its been fabricated on a synthesiser rather than recorded by real musicians. You pays your money and you takes your choice, but if CDs were returnable after opening, personally I would have sent this one back.


Official High School Musical Dressing Gown 8-9 Years
Official High School Musical Dressing Gown 8-9 Years

3.0 out of 5 stars Details that matter, 21 Nov. 2008
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a medium weight fleece dressing gown, colour shown is accurate, the back is plain. Length at back (nape to hem) is 34 1/2" (87cm), chest is 34" (86cm) and sleeves are only 14" (35cm) from shoulder seam to bottom of cuff and 11" (28cm) underarm, which is quite short in proportion to the body. Overall I would say this product is reasonable value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for a plane/train ride, 11 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not so much a novel as a treatise on Happiness in narrative form, this book is an undemanding companion to your own thoughts on what might make you happy. The numerous quotes and reflections from writers and philosophers scattered through the book are as much a source of pleasure and wry reflection as the text itself. The storyline is peopled by the type of materially successful New York professionals that Brits only know through film and fiction, there are no 'down home' plain folk here, and the topic of what makes a person happy is addressed from the introspective, somewhat neurotic point of view of those caught in the glass bubble of exceptional material comfort. If, like my best friend, you thought that Kristin Scott-Thomas's character in The English Patient was nuts to leave her perfectly nice and dishy husband (played by Colin Firth) for the flawed, aloof but erotic Ralph Fiennes character, you may have trouble empathising with this novel's lead female.

Overall, if you haven't done that much self-examination it might make you think but if you pretty much already know what makes you happy this novel will most likely just confirm your views and pass the hours pleasantly.
