Veet Warm Wax Microwavable Jar - Essential Oils - 250 ml
Veet Warm Wax Microwavable Jar - Essential Oils - 250 ml
Price: 5.23

3.0 out of 5 stars Veet oriental wax, or shaving, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This worked well and gave good results, it does take longer than shaving and you need to wait til regrowth is 5mm before waxing again but then the results are good. If you exfoliate a day before using, then it will be better. You warm the jar in the microwave (or take some to warm separately) and the spatula is also a thermometer to avoid burns, which i found reassuring


Tefal 3-Piece Ingenio Enamel Trial Offer
Tefal 3-Piece Ingenio Enamel Trial Offer
Price: 40.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, interesting idea, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These pans are definitely a good quality, and when using them you aren't too aware of the handles being detachable as they have attached on very firmly and safely. The set comes with just 2 pan bases and one handle, so you have to swap and change. This would be ideal if you are very short on space, but for us it's not a real issue in our kitchen. It does also allow you to detach the handle then put the same pan into the oven, which is a real benefit. There are lots of products that would allow you to expand this range even further


Ultrasport Excercise Bike Racer 150 with Hand Pulse Sensors
Ultrasport Excercise Bike Racer 150 with Hand Pulse Sensors
Price: 136.91

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bike, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have to say, to me this bike is not massively space saving. Compared to my previous bike it does take up more floor space so if that is a major consideration it may not be the ideal bike for you. That said, it is a good bike. It's well made and has all the features and functions that you would expect. It is comfortable to use and so convenient to be able to use it from home.
It did require some basic assembly but this took max 30 mins by one person.
I would recommend it overall


Expecting a Baby? (One Born Every Minute)
Expecting a Baby? (One Born Every Minute)
by Dr. Penelope Law
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very similar to previous Penelope Law guides and not very much to do with the TV show - but still good, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is really very similar to a previous Penelope Law baby and toddler guide I was given when expecting my first baby. This book is not anything to do with the TV show, other than the title. Still it has a wealth of information and is really comprehensive and pretty useful. It would make a great reference book during pregnancy or early stages of motherhood


How They Started Digital
How They Started Digital
by David Lester
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is quite a fascinating book to dip into if you are involved in digital business, or just have an interest in it. It gives the story of 25 household names who have taken a good idea and transformed them into really powerful and successful businesses, which is pretty inspirational to read


World Search - Busy Places
World Search - Busy Places
by Lonely Planet
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is lots of fun for my children (age 2-5) and gives them lots of opportunities to learn while chatting about the pictures. It's really nice to see lonely planet bringing out books for this age group as they are a brand I really trust. The book has lots of colourful pages and lots of small details so it works well for children across a wide age group


Tommee Tippee Sangenic Compatible Cassette (Pack of 18)
Tommee Tippee Sangenic Compatible Cassette (Pack of 18)
Price: 49.98

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential for us, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These have been an essential for us over the years as we have continuously had children in nappies for almost 6 years now (kids close together in age) so we have always been using the tommee tippee nappy bins to contain everything. These cassettes are very reliable and work for both types of tommee tippee sangenic bins that we have. The only complaint is that it does not have something to warn you when coming to the end of the roll


Sushi Slim
Sushi Slim
by Makiko Sano
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book to get started with sushi, 9 Mar 2014
This review is from: Sushi Slim (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've never made sushi before but this book gives step by step guide of how to make different types, and also gives some suggested daily meal plans with their calories clearly marked so it's great for trying out Japanese food as part of a healthier diet.
Soups and salads are included as well as the traditional rolled sushi, and there is quite an emphasis on fish within the book.
There are lots of clear pictures to give you an idea how it should look.


Wonderwise: My Body, Your Body: A book about human and animal bodies
Wonderwise: My Body, Your Body: A book about human and animal bodies
by Mick Manning
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.12

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy educational book, 9 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 5 year old had used this book in school when studying "The Body" topic. It's useful to supplement learning, to reflect about different types of bodies, and to think about all the great things that bodies can do! It has some facts and information in it but it is aimed at quite young children, I would say about age 4-7 years.
There are lots of pictures throughout and the concept of comparing human and animals is a good one which makes the book a little different to other "body" books available.
I did find though that the print and overall quality of this book is not as good as books I have had from other publishers - eg two pages attached together, I have to cut them apart


Cuckoo!
Cuckoo!
by Fiona Roberton
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet and beautifully illustrated story, 9 Mar 2014
This review is from: Cuckoo! (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really lovely book, suitable for young children. Cuckoo tells the tale of a small bird looking for someone who understands him and speaks his language, he travels among the different animals and even tries to learn their languages before finally happening across a baby who understands him.
The story is told very simply and was great for my 2 and 4 year old. Compared to "Wanted: The Perfect Pet" this is aimed at a slightly younger child, but it still has the same charm.
