Daydream Basic Sleep Mask with Cool Pack Black
Daydream Basic Sleep Mask with Cool Pack Black
Price: 8.61

5.0 out of 5 stars No peeking!, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sleep mask has some pads that sit below each eye. Looked strange when first out of the packet, but soon realised how effective they were in stopping light peeking through the bottom of the sleep mask. Wouldn't be without this mask.

3.0 out of 5 stars The mug with a twist!, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't forget to twist the lid! To drink from the mug and to stop spillage!

The number of times I've forgotten, only to find half the contents of my drink in my bag!!!

Don't know how other users found it, but I've also struggled with screwing the lid off, to refill the mug. There's no grip!

If you can afford it, the Contigo West Loop Autoseal Travel Mug - 470 ml is the one to go for, in my opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars best travel mug, ever!, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say?

- It's really easy to screw the lid on/off
- the push-button to release liquid is just as easy for sipping from the mug
- keeps liquid hot
- no spillage.

Just wish is was a little but cheaper, but well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Purple-tastic! Good value for money and perfect for the job!, 9 Sep 2013
the title says it all!

Delivered on time, easy to fit case, and I really like the feel of it too - not plastic or rubber.

Colour is true to picture - this is not always the case.

PURE Oasis Flow, Rechargeable Weatherproof DAB/FM/Internet Radio

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite "pitch perfect"!, 24 July 2013
I really like the older version and thought this would be even better. Unfortunately this was not the case.

Had the radio for a week but had to send back for a refund because the battery was not charging properly - display kept showing part charged.

Also, to access preset stations you can no longer press 1 of 5 physical buttons as was the case previously. Instead you have to select "options" then the preset station required.

As others have mentioned, there's a lag between switching on the radio and sound - both on/off.

I wish when an upgrade is done that manufacturers would take the best of the previous model and new, and improved features rather than go backwards.
Such a shame as it had potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, but perfect!, 20 July 2013
Like others, I've tried various versions of these in the past but they never stayed on. The are perfect and invisible to anyone else.

In the hot weather it's been great to be able to wear shoes without tights and avoiding sweaty feet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hats off!, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived just in time for the very hot weekend!

Loved the fact that it's not lined and not too tightly woven - allows for more breathability [not sure if that's a word]. Provides just about enough shade.

Have squished into a bag a few times, and still keeps it's shape.

Will get a lot of use out of it given hot weather predicted 'til August!

3.0 out of 5 stars Yeah but, no but ..., 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, the excluders do the job; but they're not as good as the one I bought years ago.

The new excluders -

- tend to move when opening/closing the door, when used on wood flooring, so have to be repositioned slightly in order to close the door. This is probably due to the PVC covering.

- are smaller in diameter and have a PVC covering, whereas the other one bought years ago have a wider diameter with material covering and look more expensive. But at 4.99 the new ones do the job.

A good price, with the added bonus of two card slots on the inside flap AND protects the 'phone too!

What more can one ask for. This case is perfect for the job!

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet music to my ears!, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to replace my beloved Sony in-ear 'phones which finally fell apart. And they're fab! They're so comfortable in ear, that I forget I've got them in, unlike the Sennheiser which felt uncomfortable and were more expensive.

Only one thing I'd change, it's the cable. It would've been better if the cable to the left was longer than the right, so that they hang around the neck better.
