This stylish product chops my herbs brilliantly, but buyer beware - the blade is so sharp that whike unpackaging it my fiance badly cut his finger and that was even while the plastic protective covering was on the blade.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst hairdye I have ever used., 3 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using bright semi permanent colours on my pre-lightened hair for a couple of years now and decided to give Manic Panic a try. I liked the look of the New Rose shade, but after applying it as per instructions it was nowhere near as bright as I'd hoped. Its texture was so runny that it was incredibly difficult to apply compared to the thicker squeezy dyes in tubes I'm used to. There was barely enough in the pot for my fine shoulder length hair, which at almost £10 per post was shocking. The worst thing was that the coulour lasted for just one wash! I'm uaccustomed to semi permanent colours lasting at least 10 washes so this was dismal. I can't help wondering whether my pot was a fake or a dud as I can't imagine how on earth this hairdye has got such great review from other buyers otherwise.

1.0 out of 5 stars No batteries, 18 Jun. 2014
It said x3 AAA batteries were included - no batteries were sent with my torch, which was misleading and inconvenient.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outwell - Collaps Bowl M
Don't risk buying this bowl unless you're 100% sure you wish to keep it otherwise you won't get your money back!

I decided not to keep the mine - it was huge for a medium sized bowl, more like a serving bowl and a horrible rubbery texture, which I wouldn't want to eat out of.

I requested to return the item and was sent (after having to chase it) a returns label. I sent the bowl back and awaited my refund. Over a fortnight later, with no refund forthcoming nor any acknowledgement of receipt, I contacted the company, "Peak Outdoors," at which point I was informed that refunds were charged at "£8 per box." Given that I paid £6.99 for the bowl, I was actually in deficit to them, despite the fact they now had the bowl back!

I take strong objection to this because:

a) At no point during the purchasing process was it ever stated that this was their terms and conditions - if it had been, I wouldn't have continued with the transaction
b) There is no way it cost £8 to return the bowl - £3 at most

Trying to get these points across to Peak Outdoors was a frustrating experience. When I said I would be leaving a review to warn others of what happened to me while buying an item in good faith, I was told by the seller I would be "reported to Amazon and my account blocked" for trying to "extort money" - beggars belief!

I certainly won't be buying from Peak Outdoors again - in my opinion, their return policy needs to be made much clearer and most certainly revised for smaller items.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looked naff, won't be using, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two packs of the white tiles to use in my bathroom to cover some mismatched tiles. They lasted half an hour before I took them off again, deciding I'd rather put up with mismatched tiles than these - I have to say I don't agree with the other reviewer who said they look professional - to me they look anything but. Unfortunately I found their effect reminiscent of a primary school art project.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fleece smells and is enormous, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the other reviews about this fleece being on the large size, I went for the size small, which is supposed to fit size 10-12. I'm size 16 and it's still huge! I found it to be very boxy in shape and unflattering so I don't think I'll be wearing it out in public. It also arrived smelling horribly of chemicals / glue / fish. Hopefully once I put it through the washing machine it won't smell as bad, as it's too expensive to send it back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous unusual lampshade, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the green version and certainly wasn't disappointed. It looks fabulous in my hall and everyone comments on great it looks. My only criticism would be that it was very fiddly to attach - more than one pair of hands are needed to hold it in place and screw the two sides together and of course with it being glass you can't afford to drop it.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not blue!, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd used the Raspberry Rebel and Purple Punk shades before and was very impressed, so I thought I'd give Electric Blue a go. Perhaps if my hair was white blonde it may have worked. Unfortunately the colour came out a horrid kind of greeny black. Total waste of time and money

I swear by this foundation and wouldn't use anything else now. It gives a flawless finish without being too matte. £34 might sound like a lot for a foundation, but a little goes a long way - even using it daily, you'd only need to buy a new one every 6 months.
