Hauck Dream and Care Play Square Travel Cot - Beige
Hauck Dream and Care Play Square Travel Cot - Beige

1.0 out of 5 stars Maybe if you brought a separate mattress it would be better, but finding right size would be tricky due ..., 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sent it back.
Really uncomfortable bottom so unusable as a cot or playpen.
Maybe if you brought a separate mattress it would be better, but finding right size would be tricky due to dimentions.
VERY difficult to set up and take down.
Expected better quality for price.
Wasted my time waiting for return and refund when I needed cot in that time frame.
Basically not fir for purpose..
I brought a Redkite one in the end, much better and got nice travel mattress as extra and both together cost less money than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Great Series, Great Author. I cant recommend the Ben Hope series highly enough!, 17 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this latest edition to the Ben Hope series. Thoroughly enjoyable read. I love Scott's way of writing, it puts you right in there with the action better than watching a film! The series is completely captivating and the end of each book leaves you desperate for more...Cant get enough of Ben Hope and hopefully wont have to wait too long for the next one!

Lovely blanket, brought this while on offer, very pleased, size is quite small (see description) but is perfect for newborn, washes well, soft and breathable, liked it so much I ordered a second one in cream, equally nice quality!


No Title Available

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Flawless Definition, 27 Sept. 2014
Always a fan of bare minerals mascaras, so was eager to try a new one - but this is a big disappointment -

I dont like the wand, rubbery no soft bristles, not so good for smooth coverage or separating lashes.

Takes ages to dry on lashes.

Lengthens yes, but sticks lashes together (maybe drying time? or just consistency...)

Hard to layer up with another coat, even after wait.. wait... waiting for it to dry, more clumpy lashes but NO volume.

Giving two Stars because if you want to just add a little length to your lashes for a natural look and willing to comb out the clumps, this is an okay mascara, but does not live up to the Lash Domination name in any way shape or form.

Overall would not buy again, I loved Bare Minerals Big Tease Mascara (no longer available) but luckily Bare Minerals Flawless Definition is still available - even tho its hit and miss whether you receive a bottle that dries up after a few weeks, it DOES lengthen, and VOLUMIZE, and you can layer up for more dramatic look, in my opinion Flawless Definition is way better than most drugstore and high end brands, gives great results AND having switched to natural mascara after harsh ones thinning my lashes (used Maybelline for years), my lashes are actually growing back!

So in summery, Bare Minerals mascaras rule! - but sadly not this one, dont waste your money, try Flawless Definition :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not better than maxfactor!, 16 May 2013
Coverage is is good, its not too heavy and thick, gives a nice healthy look without being too shimmery or matt, pretty long lasting but if i'm honest any every day l'oeal max factor or boots no.7 in a light to medium coverage will give the same results at a fraction of the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars waste of time and money, ended up having to buy another brand, 16 May 2013
First impressions were, wow, im going to love this, sadly NOT THE CASE! When you first apply you think it will really work, seems to glide on like a dream, HOWEVER, it soon seems to crack and flake, leaving unsightly patches without coverage! Maybe due to the fact eye shadow peels it off, who knows, but I like to use a little shadow to soften the edges, and this liner does not blend out easily. If you touch up the bald patches, you end up with a lumpy, clogged up effect.

And the other thing, once its been used a couple of times it seems very prone to drying out so it wont glide on at all, and sharpening it is difficult, messy, and wasteful, once used, it will never be the same again :(

This liner is not as smooth as a gel or liquid liner, and not as good as a pencil, its like a cross between, and in this case that idea just does not work :(

It is actually one of the few products I actually considered writing a letter of complaint to Barry M about, just feel its a total waste of money as you'll end up wanting to replace it with another product (like I did)

Two stars, because:

If you dont wear eyeshadow and are willing to keep re-applying every couple of hours (and put up with a little lumpy build up) if I stretch my imagination a little, maybe you will like it?

Waterproof? No you cant wear this to swimming pool, please dont, but I'd say it will stand up to a little light rain;)

5.0 out of 5 stars would buy again :) great value, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic product, just as good as moroccan oil, slightly lighter on the hair, so great to keep your hair clean and shiny looking or if you have fair hair. Well worth the money. I shy away from trying new hair and beauty products because its easy to make a mistake and so often you end up returning to your favourite brand and wasting money, not with this product I am happy to say, i will definitely buy again when i run out! saying that a little goes a long way, had mine for months now and its still going strong :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money!, 27 Oct. 2012
So bad i considered writing to Max Factor:( I always love their products, but this one is a real let down. Does not cover well, watery liquid, poor colour. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY, dont bother, you will only end up buying another brand to replace it. Go for something from maybelline or rimmel!
