Philips HP3631 300w InfraCare Lamp
Philips HP3631 300w InfraCare Lamp
Price: £50.00

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 😊


Sennheiser RS185 Uncompressed Sound Wireless Headphones
Sennheiser RS185 Uncompressed Sound Wireless Headphones
Price: £299.99

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 Lemon Dishwasher Tablets (Pack of 74)
Finish All in One Max Lemon Dishwasher Tablets (Pack of 74)
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: £74.99

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 :-)


Bose ® SoundSport In Ear Headphones for Samsung Galaxy - Green
Bose ® SoundSport In Ear Headphones for Samsung Galaxy - Green
Price: £129.95

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.


Christmas Elf Funny Mens T-Shirt ,8 Sizes. Xmas Party,Present Gift (2XL 47-49)
Christmas Elf Funny Mens T-Shirt ,8 Sizes. Xmas Party,Present Gift (2XL 47-49)
Offered by TSHIRT PRINTING FOR LESS LTD
Price: £8.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, fun product!, 11 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very fast delivery and fair price. Heavy duty cotton, that looks like it will keep its shape well: pre shrunk too, which should help.

Colours are deep and true to life with the decorations (collar, belt etc) of a good cut.

Which brings me to my slight concern with this T Shirt: the decorations almost seemto be a transfer, superimposed on the cotton. Remains to be seen how well they stays on!

For the money, a good buy and a fun design.


AmazonBasics In-Ear Headphones - Black
AmazonBasics In-Ear Headphones - Black
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good sound and build quality ...., 11 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
.... for the money. Less than a tenner for headphones that fit well, a reasonably well built and sound good.

Even includes spare ear plugs and a decent length to the cable.

Very basic packaging: come in a small plastic bag and absolutely no sign of a pouch 😄

Ideal as a stocking filler but not a 'main' present. Perfect for my teenage son who seems to break his headphones almost every month!


Colgate C350 ProClinical Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
Colgate C350 ProClinical Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
Offered by WowDiscounts
Price: £24.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product. Worth considering, 11 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions are good: bright red, shiny box, instantly recognisable as Colgate.

Inside the box it's a standard electric toothbrush affair. Stand for the recharge and 1 toothbrush.

Colgate proudly proclaim the toothbrush is "powered by Japanese technology"; a Good Thing. Obviously 😊

Easy to set up and charge, with a clear light indicating the charge level.

In use, the C350 feels a bit light to hold but the grip is fine.

The tekkie stuff claims a "unique" up and down and side to side cleaning action.

Whatever. Been using it for about a week now and it works fine. Exactly like all the other electronic brushes I've used over the years.

Fair price, good build quality. Worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you can afford it, buy it!, 14 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions are excellent, including the packaging. Box contains all the leads you could ever need. The user guide is clear and comprehensive and - surprising for this day and age - written in proper English!

Total set up time time? Under 15 minutes.

What's in the box? Sound bar, Acoustimas module (looks like a sub woofer) and the programmable remote. Plus optical cable, cooaxial cable and analog cable.

Sound quality? Now this is interesting. I initially tried it out on my TV. Cookery programme happend to be on and I wasn't knocked out by the sound. Changed channels to the first Disney Tarzan movie and immediately noticed the music.

Very clear and tuneful. The jazzy trumpet really sounded jazzy! And like a trumpet!

Found the system can do very loud easily, with no distortion. Bass is loud and not boomy.

Played a few DVDs and the music stood out fantastically! Dialogue very clear too. Background noise subtle but noticeable.

Note: I couldn't get sound from my Sony Blu Ray player at first. A quick check on the manual suggested a solution: use the optical connection for the satellite (or TV) and the analogue lead for the Blu Ray (I guess the reverse would work too - analogue to connect TV/satellite and optical to connect Blu Ray/DVD)

Still didn't work, so back to the manual! Turn off the satellite dish (ie the channels not the TV itself) and BINGO! Sound from my Blu Ray. Turn the Blu Ray off and the sound comes back for the TV. Simple if you read the manual. Or this review :-)

Been using it for a few days now, mostly with TV stuff - soaps, the news etc - and gradually noticed I was hearing much more than usual.

Even my wife noticed 😄

Diction is clearer, quiet moments easier to hear and more realistic. Louder moments have more impact.

Build quality is excellent and shouts "quality"

Use it every day now. Love it!
