Rexel JOY 75 mm A4 Lever Arch File - Pretty Pink
Rexel JOY 75 mm A4 Lever Arch File - Pretty Pink
Price: £7.12

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like the quality and the vibrant colour., 29 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rexel is a top quality brand and this lever arch file is a very vibrant colour that looks great on the shelf and lifts the mood of my office.It's made of card coated in a textured plastic that appears capable of taking some abuse and providing years of service.The coating allows the file to be easily wiped clean.The lever arch mechanism is so-so and no different to other similar product.I really like this file and have no hesitation in recommending it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great colour and great ring binder from a top brand, 29 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rexel is a top brand and this ring binder is of good quality.It's card with a textured plastic coating,easy to wipe clean.The colour is very vibrant and lifts the office.The ring mechanism is comparable to other ring binders and has nothing to make it stand out but appears well made and should offer years of life.I really like these binders.


MaxiNutrition Promax Protein Shake Powder 1.12 kg - Strawberry
MaxiNutrition Promax Protein Shake Powder 1.12 kg - Strawberry
Price: £33.94

5.0 out of 5 stars possibly the best protein shake i've used, 28 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Maxi Nutrition is developed with GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) Human Performance Lab and it shows. GSK is a British multinational pharmaceutical company who specialise in health-related products. First thing first, the product has been “100% batch tested” by Informed-Sport which is a quality assurance program for sports and nutritional products so you can be sure that if you use this product whilst competing, you won’t be stripped of your titles like Lance Armstrong or accused of cheating like Chris Froome! All responsible, reputable companies who sell protein products go down this route and it’s good to see that Maxi Nutrition has as well.

Nutrition-wise, this product is very good. Per 40g serving, you can expect 154kcals, 1.2g saturated fat, 2.5 carbs (1.5 of which are sugars), 0.1g fibre, 30g protein and just 0.8g salt. When compared to another protein brand’s nutritional information of a similar price tag, you can see that this is very good indeed. There’s a good amount of calcium and magnesium, the latter of which can help you sleep better, relieve stress and studies have shown that over a period of time, it can improve/increase strength (providing you’re training, that is!).

Other ingredients include BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids): Leucine – which helps to slow down muscle breakdown, isoleucine – is said to help you burn more fatty acids and boost metabolism and finally valine helps with lean muscle building and muscle repair. Finally, glutamine is included in the mix. Glutamine supplementation is said to help to minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.

All that’s left to say is that the powder mixes very well indeed. It genuinely is one of the best products I’ve ever used in terms of mixability. You won’t get lumps with this stuff. The taste isn’t bad, it’s not the best in the world but I’ve had much worse. Overall it’s a good purchase and with good nutritional values, you should expect to see some good results when mixed with a good training program and a solid diet


The Breath Co Fresh Breath Oral Rinse - 500 ml, Mild Mint
The Breath Co Fresh Breath Oral Rinse - 500 ml, Mild Mint
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it., 23 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
No alcohol,no artificial flavours or colours has got to be a good thing.In use,the taste was a little odd and,unlike mainstream mouthwashes,my teeth didn't feel any fresher or cleaner.I left home for work feeling unsure if i liked this mouth wash but as the morning wore on,my mouth did feel better,the mouthwash appeared to neutralise my saliva.To be negative,i think it's way overpriced but on the positive side,i ended the day looking forward to using it again.I don't think it'll replace my usual brand but will be used to supplement my oral hygiene.


Igenix Pikapak HL9458 GU10 Mains Halogen Lamp 50 W - Pack of 5, Clear
Igenix Pikapak HL9458 GU10 Mains Halogen Lamp 50 W - Pack of 5, Clear
Price: £7.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value bulbs, 21 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Five individually packaged bulbs arrived in a slightly oversize box that is packed with brown paper to protect the bulbs from damage in transit.At first glance,it appears overkill but knowing your purchase will arrive undamaged is peace of mind.There's nothing to differentiate these bulbs from others we have and they fit easily and work as you'd expect.I actually believe them to be good value when you consider the price includes delivery.As others have stated,i find this type of bulb doesn't have a long life so we tend to purchase regularly and only time will tell if these outperform what we presently use.


Philips HX9044/26 Sonicare Adaptive Clean Brush Heads x 4
Philips HX9044/26 Sonicare Adaptive Clean Brush Heads x 4
Price: £30.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing results from toothbrush heads that are a great investment., 20 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These heads are definitely worth the investment,leaving your teeth and mouth feeling clean and fresh.With the toothbrush only coming with a single head,it is imperative you buy these heads.Philips recommend you change the head every three months but i believe every month is more realistic.The sonicare range is a high end product,priced accordingly but the results are impressive easily an improvement on mu usual german branded toothbrush.Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surely the best electric toothbrush you can buy?, 20 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife has used a well known German brand of electric toothbrush for many years and always been pleased.Of late,she's tried a well known supermarket own brand and while still pleased,was wishing to go back to her original favourite believing it to be the best.Then this came along and blew everything away.Various settings offering a).clean b).whiter and c).deep clean.Larger than her usual toothbrush,a quality feel and comes with a hard plastic protective case.This toothbrush genuinely gives your teeth a really deep clean and is excellent at removing coffee stains if used daily.The price makes this a considered purchase but if you can afford the high cost,you'll be rewarded with the cleanest,whitest teeth you could wish for.Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge improvement on energy saving light bulbs of old., 20 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Slowly but surely,we're replacing all of our energy saving light bulbs for LED.Safer for the environment when you dispose of them,they contain no mercury.Instant light,no waiting for the bulb to warm up,they save you money while offering an improvement on the energy savers of old.We've tried Igenix before and the quality is excellent and the bulb has a predicted life measured at thousands of hours.Expensive upfront but will save you money every time you switch on.Great light output,easy to recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slows your machine., 15 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've installed Kaspersky om my machines many times but have found them to slow up the computer in recent editions.This appears to be the worst version yet so it was installed and removed immediately.It seems to be a known issue with this release so best avoid.The brand has always been great for protecting from the virus and trojans that are rife so it's a little surprising these issues weren't addressed before release.

5.0 out of 5 stars High initial purchase price but a huge improvement over previous energy saving bulbs., 11 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Slowly but surely,we're converting our energy saving lightbulbs to LED in an effort to reduce our energy consumption and our bills further.The LED are far more like the traditional light bulbs we've used for many years,in that,they look far better than some of the oversize and ugly energy savers we've purchased previously.I particularly like the fact that these are mercury free which makes disposal far easier and safer for the environment.The light given out by this bulb is excellent and instant,no warming up required,which is another improvement.The bulb arrives well packaged to ensure it isn't damaged in transit.My only reservation is the initial purchase price and it may be wise to wait a little while for these prices to drop.A really excellent bulb and easy to recommend.
