Scotchgard 650 ml Oxy Carpet Cleaner Trigger Spray
Scotchgard 650 ml Oxy Carpet Cleaner Trigger Spray

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to review the scotchguard treatment within this cleaner., 21 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We used this carpet cleaner on a carpet that has recently been fitted in a daughter's bedroom where make-up is continually dropped.It cleans well and leaves a coating of scotchguard in place.The cleaning is easy to see but it's the scotchguard effect that is difficult to quantify.The concern is how a carpet will look when you're putting patches of the protection down and not covering the whole carpet.It's a product that is difficult to review after a short period of time but in that period of use,it's been very good.


WAH London Nail Polish, Mating Surfaces
WAH London Nail Polish, Mating Surfaces
Price: £9.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Bottle looks plain but the nail polish is great., 20 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a beautiful nail polish that goes on smoothly and evenly.The lilac shade looks striking and modern leaving a very fresh look on the nails.It's a very true lilac that wears well.As a rule,i buy pastel shades and avoid garish colours so this is very much one of the colours i would choose to apply daily.The bottle is simple,not at all fancy,and with the black top,it's functional rather than pretty so not a nail polish you would hand over as a gift.Definitely a polish i will continue to use and very easy to recommend.


Rapesco 827-P 2-Hole Punch, 30 sheet Capacity - Red
Rapesco 827-P 2-Hole Punch, 30 sheet Capacity - Red
Price: £12.45

5.0 out of 5 stars It feels as good as it looks and punches holes with ease., 20 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like the quality of everything i have that's manufactured by Rapesco and this punch is no exception.Made in China,as everything else these days,this punch comes with a 15 year guarantee which should give an indication of the longevity you should expect.It is very tactile in the hand,feeling as good as it looks and punches holes as it was designed to do,up to 30 sheets at a time.It has a locking switch for safety,an adjustable paper guide and a flip open confetti tray.A welcome addition to my home-office.Very easy to recommend.


Manuka Doctor ApiBronze Age-Defying Facial Bronzing Gel 50 ml
Manuka Doctor ApiBronze Age-Defying Facial Bronzing Gel 50 ml
Price: £7.45

2.0 out of 5 stars Unnatural colouring., 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After applying a single dab of this fake tan,i knew it wasn't for me.Initially,no effect,then after a number of applications,the colour was far too dark and looked completely unnatural.As a daily user of fake tan,i've tried a fair few and this isn't one i could recommend.I've now tried a few tans from the Manuka brand and they're not what i would purchase,there are better and cheaper available elsewhere.


The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman
The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman
by Mindy Mejia
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner that i thoroughly enjoyed., 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Hattie Hoffman is stabbed to death on the opening night of her high school play and it turns out her whole life is an act and she's a better actress than all around her realise.The book unfolds with each chapter telling the story of the individual characters and their place in Hattie's life.It wasn't too difficult to guess the murderer but that doesn't detract from the book.For me,this was a real page turner and i read the 340 pages in 5 days which is very quick for me.All the characters were believeable,the storyline drew you in,and the author writes so that you can visualise the places and people like you know them.It's very,very good and easy to recommend.


Jane Doe January: My Twenty-Year Search for Truth and Justice
Jane Doe January: My Twenty-Year Search for Truth and Justice
by Emily Winslow
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.90

3.0 out of 5 stars A book i didn't enjoy reading., 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A true account from Emily Wilmslow detailing the rape she endured in 1992 whilst a student at Carnege Mellon University,Pittsburgh,USA.There was to be no arrest until 20 years later when DNA came up with a match in Arthur Fryar.Emily tells her story eloquently as she prepared for the trial she had waited half her life to see.A clear insight into the devastating effects this type of crime has on the victim.It was a book i didn't enjoy,the basis of the book is a heinous crime but i also couldn't get a connection with Emily,who clearly will never get over the nightmare.Difficult for me to recommend.

Mmm17067Clrvp Clear Hooks & Strips Plastic/Wire 9 Hooks W/ 12 Adhesive Strips
Offered by supermart USA
Price: £9.29

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll wonder how you got by without them., 17 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These hooks and strips hold strongly to painted walls,finished wood,tile,metal and more and can be removed cleanly without damage to the surface.Straight out of the packet, we applied a strip to the back of the hook,you simply peel the cover away to reveal the sticky pad,and put one on a painted wall near the front door.Our UPVC door has be locked or it opens and our dog begins another adventure running away.However,when the doorbell rings,you can never find the key,until now.We needed to hang a hand towel in the kitchen,tea towels,our daughter had something to hang in her bedroom,i had keys for lockers in the garage,the uses are limitless and all fitted in seconds.Amazing how we ever lived without them,easy to recommend.


Scotch 25.4mm x 25.4mm Restickable Dots (Pack of 18)
Scotch 25.4mm x 25.4mm Restickable Dots (Pack of 18)
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars I use them in my office., 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The restickable dots are supplied stuck on a plastic backing sheet.You simply peel them off,attach to whatever you want to hang up and then peel a thin plastic disc from the dot and press onto the surface you wish to use.For me,these are useful to hang documents on my office wall instead of simply stacking them amongst a pile of papers which are then difficult to find.When i no longer need that document hanging in my view,i can re-use the sticky dots.The recommended maximum weight is 0.6kg.I really like them so easy to recommend.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick Number 50, Nude Thrill
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars More suited for the evening than everyday use., 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A smooth,silky lip colour that comes with an applicator that i found was easy to apply and the results were long lasting.The colour was more suited for evening wear and i didn't particularly like the taste but i was very impressed with the look.One i'll continue to use for those nights out.All from a brand that offers fair value for money.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Zoe hasn't seen her mother,Gina,for many years after falling out and blaming things on her,that she didn't realise at the time,her mother was protecting her from.When Gina re-enters Zoe's life,it becomes apparent Gina has early onset dementia.This causes Zoe to face up to her past and plan her future and find peace with her mother before her mother,as she knew her,fades away.A touching,beautifully written story that touches on the cruel effects of Alzheimers and explores the relationships of a mother and her daughters.
