CALMURID PRO Body Hydrolotion
CALMURID PRO Body Hydrolotion
Offered by Lloydspharmacy
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars No help with my eczema & a bit smelly!, 12 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I suffer from quite severe eczema so was very keen to try this out. First impressions? Dull/clinical packaging & fairly strong smell: not unpleasant but quite strong.

Second impression was its thin and spreads easily and quickly. Absorbed quickly too.

Third impression after using daily for about 2 weeks - no impression on my eczema at all.

May be OK for skin that is simply dry though a bit expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, performs well, 14 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Typical Phillips product: well made, good value, performs well.

Nothing surprising here, just the usual stuff you find on most modern irons: temperature dial, water holder, steam jet ... everything you need.

Good sized plate & good length to the cord. Fairly light too, so extended ironing isn't too bad 😊

Heats up quickly and glides easily across most clothes. Very good on shirts and most cotton items; perhaps not so good on very dry jeans, though the steam/water jet options work well.

Very good, safe buy. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small and nicely made, 9 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very nice bag. Has an air of quality out it. Wipe clean outside and inside.

Pretty stopper on the end of the zip. Very small pocket inside. If you like it's looks then you really can't go wrong with this .... other than the size.

I say that as its quite small - smaller than I was expecting, to be honest.

So check the size and, if big enough, buy it 😃

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Phillips product: does what you want, at a fair price, 10 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Standard steam iron, with everything thing you expect, in the place you'd expect it to be ....

Usual Phillip's good standard of materials, well designed, with no sharp edges.

Used it on everything from 100% cotton shirts, to jeans to silk ties.

Heats up very quickly and the settings (on a typical dial) are easy to use. Power lead is a tad short.

Good sized plate that glides easily across all types of fabric.

As others have said, only thing lacking is a something to take the water from the tap in.

Other than that, no complaints. A solid item, if the price is right, then buy!


Philips HP3631 300w InfraCare Lamp
Philips HP3631 300w InfraCare Lamp
Price: £89.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, easy to use and soothing, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Had this unpacked, out of the box, set up and working in less than 5 minutes.

Robust and well made (plastic) this has no sharp corners or unfinished edges. Fair length to the cable too.

Didn't need to refer to the instructions once. The lamp can be tilted up and is designed to sit on a table, a couple of feet away from you.

To use the lamp you either need to put the part of your body you want warming in front of it or lie along side it.

It's said to be good for all sorts of muscle pain and rheumatoid arthritis.

I suffer painful arthritis in my fingers and it really seems to help.

15 minutes is the most you'll find useful in any one session. It gets quite hot but seems safe.

One odd thing is there is an easy to use timer but it just counts the time - doesn't switch the lamp off.

All in all, a fair priced, nicely made product that seems to help.

Worth a look 😊

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, questionable looks, 8 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Mixed first impressions. Packaging is dull and mono coloured, and very plastically. Not very easy to open though the various cables, plugs etc are neatly boxed inside the rather large box that contains everything.

And the phones themselves can no way be called "lookers": large, mostly dull black coloured with some cheap looking grey plastic inserts for volume etc.

Wearing them makes you look like one of the Cyber Men from Dr Who ☺

Set up is fairly self explanatory which is handy because the instructions are quite spartan. A word of warning here: each ear piece needs a battery (supplied) and to fit it you need to twist each headphone. Twist too hard - as I did - and the ear cushion comes off! Oh, and they need to be charged for 16 hours ....

Build quality is good but nothing out of the ordinary.

You can attach them to any audio devise (TV, radio, PC etc) with an optical connection. And - very usefully - using the supplied red and white audio cables. You need to plug the wireless receiver into a nearby electrical socket, switch on the phones and away you go!

Finally, the good stuff! Sound is excellent! Bass weighty and tuneful, treble restrained. I've played Compact Jazz CDs from my Roksan Candy mid range CD and amp. I've played Spotify stuff thru my iPad sitting on my Vita Audio music system.

Wireless is good. Can move about downstairs with no loss of volume or quality. Sound degrades somewhat as I move upstairs and does drop out on occasions.

Comfortable to wear, despite their size and no wires really helps too.

A good buy for the right person.


Finish All-in-One Max Dishwasher Tablets - Lemon, Pack of 1 (Total 74 Tablets)
Finish All-in-One Max Dishwasher Tablets - Lemon, Pack of 1 (Total 74 Tablets)
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, easy to use, not the cheapest, 18 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very easy to use as the covering they come wrapped in dissolves in the wash.

Cleans glasses as well as any cleaner we've used over the last 10 years or so.

OK to good on baked on stains such as those left by pasta and spaghetti: some stains remain but very light & soon wiped clean.

Pleasant, lemony smell whilst washing and most plates etc come out feeling 'squeaky clean'

Used in a 2 year old Boshe, that does approximately 2 washes every week.

A good, safe if not spectacular buy: worth trying, especially if the "price is right"


Heyland and Whittle Green Tea and Grapefruit Body Wash
Heyland and Whittle Green Tea and Grapefruit Body Wash
Price: £12.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have and use body lotion, 19 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not a brand I've heard of before now but my wife and I love this product!

Classy and restrained packaging helps create a feeling of quality. Looks and feels expensive.

In use, it feels smooth and silky with a very pleasant grapefruit smell, that lingers for quite a while.

As others have noted, it doesn't lather up much. Apparently this is due to it not containing any parabens, which seems linked to breast cancer.

All in all, a nice, quality product that I think you'll enjoy using....


GMC GCHD18 18V Combi Hammer Drill
GMC GCHD18 18V Combi Hammer Drill
Price: £79.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, general purpose drill, for domestic use, 7 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions are good: well packaged and nicely built in a striking yellow and grey colour.

Comes complete with a charger that only needs an hour to fully charge the drill.

Working as a power drill, drill, and screw driver and able to drill holes in wood, steel and stone, this could be the only hammer drill you'll ever need!

The handle is well shaped and easy to grip, with rubber overlays.

Comes in a soft carry case, which brings me onto a common complaint: the bag looks cheap and the included bits and accessories even more so!

They aren't great to use either and with no compartment in the bag for them, they just annoy!

Shame because the drill itself seems pretty good, especially for the money!

Well worth a look :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars creates a very good first impression, 12 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Typical Bose packaging, creates a very good first impression. Opening the carefully constructed box you find the headphones, a neat pouch and a useful extension cable.

These are marketed as 'sports' headphones, so the extension would be useful whilst working out in the gym. The headphones have a small plastic hook like addition on each ear, to help keep them secure: again useful in the gym or when out jogging.

Build is the usual Bose high standard and the buds fit easily and securely, even when moving about.

Sound quality is excellent: detailed and clear with a bass that doesn't boom, even with the volume up high. Musically rhythmic with good clarity to the voices.

All in all a great set of phones, well worth buying.

Please note: these aren't noise cancelling and they do leak sound.
