Carmex Cherry Tube and Pot - (Pack of 2)
Carmex Cherry Tube and Pot - (Pack of 2)
Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Lip Balm, 2 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use a lot of lip balm as i suffer with chapped lips to the point where they bleed so was delighted to have the opportunity to test this balm from Carmex,a brand i'd not seen in the supermarket.I tried both the lip balm from the tube and the pot and found them very refreshing,leaving the lips very nourished.Both are SPF 15 which is great during the current hot and sunny spell.The cherry flavour is a little tingly on contact with your lips but nothing off-putting and the taste is fine.Recommended.


Philips S5130/06 Series 5000 Electric Shaver with Smart Click Precision Trimmer
Philips S5130/06 Series 5000 Electric Shaver with Smart Click Precision Trimmer
Price: £90.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Great design let down by weak motor., 28 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The shaver is perfectly shaped to your hand and feels extremely comfortable to hold and the unit is extremely light.I was disappointed that the shaver isn't supplied with a case but instead comes with a clip-on plastic cover for the head.It charges in an hour and the three cutting heads sit well on the contours of your face,excellent design.The bad bit and it's important,is it isn't a great shaver.The motor simply isn't powerful enough to push across the face.As you use the circular motion as shown in the instructions,the blades seem to stumble and stop so you pull away from the face,the motor picks up and you begin again,having to go over the same stubble again and again.I shave every day so my stubble is slight and this was using a fully charged unit.After shaving,to clean,you simply press a catch to release the guide which flips out of the way and you rinse in water,seconds to do.Philips is a great brand and we've lots of their Products in our home but i'm struggling to recommend this,unfortunately.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed this book,highly recommended., 25 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Black Rabbit Hall (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An amazing story of Amber in the 1960's and Lorna(in the present day),who is adopted and is strangely drawn to 'BRH' where her mother takes her on holiday.Lorna again visits as an adult to plan her wedding venue there and this where the story begins....Told in real time and the 1960's when the Alton family resided at the Hall.It's a real page turner of a book which tells a moving story-the characters are all vivid and real and writing is like a great work of art,beautifully written.

4.0 out of 5 stars great value for money, 24 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an impressive piece of kit for the money spent.It feels of excellent quality and holds the iPhone sturdily during the gym workout.The phone is a tight fit as others have said but that's a positive as it doesn't move about during exercise.Easy to recommend.

Philips GC3810/20 Azur Performer Steam Iron with 150 g Steam Boost, 300 ml, 2400 Watt, Blue
Price: £29.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A great iron that would benefit from a longer lead., 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've used many Philips products over the years and always been pleased with the design and long life.This iron is light in the hand but still takes the creases out of the washing with ease.My only criticism,as others have stated, is the lead is too short.Plenty of powerful steam shots are available to help shift the stubborn creases and the iron makes lighter work of the chore.Recommended.


Cellfade Skin Enhancement lightening Cream 50 ml
Cellfade Skin Enhancement lightening Cream 50 ml
Price: £34.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't show any improvement on uneven skin tones, 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Used for a month before writing this review to ensure the Product had time to show noticeable results.I found it didn't help any uneven skin tones to fade and instead i used it as a very good moisturiser and it worked very well as a base to apply foundation.As this wasn't the purpose of the cream,i can only give it 3* and i find it difficult to recommend.

Philips GC4521/87 Azur Performer Steam Iron - 200g Steam Boost, 2600 Watt
Price: £49.50

4.0 out of 5 stars great iron but lead needs to be longer, 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We gave this iron to our daughter who liked the funky black look.In use,it's a good iron but the lead is shorter than ideal and would benefit from being a good foot longer.The iron glides through your clothing with powerful steam shots available and takes any creases out.We like the brand as we purchased it many times and always had good,long life from them.Recommended.


Buffalo Trace Bourbon 70 cl
Buffalo Trace Bourbon 70 cl
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 20 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Buffalo Trace Bourbon 70 cl (Wine)
I received a bottle as a birthday gift and have really enjoyed this bourbon.On the official tag around the neck of the bottle is the following information,Appearance: rich bronze. Nose: Vanilla,fresh mint and warm molasses.Taste: Pleasantly sweet with notes of brown sugar,spice,leather and oak,the finish is long and dry.I drank it neat to enjoy the flavour and could taste water as an aftertaste,the taste is pleasant and goes down easily without the choking effect of some of the mass market brands and it leaves a nice warm inner feeling.In 2012,it won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.I think the price is low and offers tremendous value.Recommended.


Braun Series 9 9040s Wet and Dry Electric Shaver
Braun Series 9 9040s Wet and Dry Electric Shaver
Price: £180.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive razor as you would expect from Braun., 6 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When the box arrived,there was a rattling noise and i suspected something was broken.Upon opening,it was merely the little cleaning brush and small bottle of lubricating oil weren't fixed in a position,just thrown into the box.Trivial,but at this price,i expect better.The razor is supplied with a 2 pin plug and i needed an adaptor.I charged the razor for an hour as the instructions state and used the razor dry.I found i had to continually go over the same skin in order to achieve a clean shave.It was very good but not amazing.The following day,i shaved after applying shaving gel and the results were far better,particularly around the top lip area where i tend to nick my lips with a blade if i'm not concentrating.The razor can be submerged up to a depth of 5m so during the shave,i continually rinsed the razor to remove the gel and the hair.At the end,i removed the shaving foil to rinse thoroughly which is easily done.The razor comes with a protective case but the charging lead won't fit into that as well so i've kept that in the box.The razor has a built in attachment for sideburns but i haven't got any so couldn't test that out.Overall,the razor feels robust,high quality and gives the impression,it will provide many years of good service.It's a good light weight and fits well in the hand.The battery is of the type that doesn't degrade over time.My only reservations are the trivial bits,rattling bits in the box,nowhere to store charging lead.This razor,at this price, is a considered purchase.Overall,an excellent razor using gel,less good shaving dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would make a great gift but actually handing it over may be a problem!, 2 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A wonderfully presented wooden box containing 6 bars of chocolate,each weighing 80g.The chocolate is suitable for vegetarians.Three milk bars contain 32% cocoa,milk & orange,milk and cardamon and vanilla,milk and indian cinnamon.The other three are plain chocolate containing 60% cocoa,dark chocolate Delhi mix,dark chocolate and lime and dark chocolate and toasted coconut.My favourite was the milk chocolate with cardamon and vanilla which had a lovely nutty texture but i was surprised at how much i enjoyed the dark chocolate with coconut,delicious grtaed on yogurt or ice cream.Be aware,the chocolate contains nut traces but for people who prefer more unusual chocolate gifts,this would be a great idea.7% of all profit is donated to help save the habitat of the elephant which can only be a good thing.Recommended.
