Hawaiian Tropic 240 ml Ultra Radiance After Sun Lotion
Hawaiian Tropic 240 ml Ultra Radiance After Sun Lotion
Offered by Beyondcosmetics
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A milky smooth aftersun lotion with a tropical fruit fragrance., 9 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pleasantly fragranced easily absorbed after sun lotion. I used it earlier this year on a Caribbean cruise and was therefore familiar with it when it came up on Amazon Vine. It is milky in texture and is neither sticky nor oily/greasy. It has a nice softening and cooling effect and your skin feels silky smooth and moisturised following application. A little goes quite a long way which makes it an economical choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars A robust personal-size stapler., 9 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a small personal-size stapler. For its size it is has a bit of heft to it due to its reassuringly robust build. Even when being used at capacity it staples through multiple sheets of paper with relative ease. I managed 25 sheets of 80g foolscap and 32 sheets of 70g. I liked the manner in which it flattened the legs of the staples causing no ragged edges. It's not the cheapest stapler at this size but it is superior to cheaper competitors and should last for years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new music jazz album I've heard in years., 7 May 2016
This review is from: Culcha Vulcha (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant album from what is fast becoming something of an American jazz institution! I have seen the band live and have listened to their live albums and approached this studio offering wondering if it would have the atmosphere, energy and verve of their live performances. I wasn't disappointed. The album melds jazz, funk, electronica and world music in a manner I haven't heard since the heyday of Weather Report. Lots of big band riffing and jazz-funk grooves underpinned by insistent eighties style bass playing and world class drumming/percussion. There is not much in the way of improvisation, which one might argue is contrary to the traditional spirit of jazz, but in this case the more rehearsed and scripted approach adds to the tightness that I think is necessary to pull off and deliver this type of jazz successfully. Honestly there are so many 'hair on the back of the neck' moments on this album I couldn't even begin to list them. Every imaginatively structured track is full of virtuoso musicianship, atmospheric surprises and creative fire. Buy it!


Mitre Delta Slip Pro Shin Pads - Black/Green/Yellow, Medium
Mitre Delta Slip Pro Shin Pads - Black/Green/Yellow, Medium
Price: £16.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and effective shinguards., 7 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These shinguards are small and neat. The guard itself is made of some type of shock-absorbing rigid composite plastic material. It is about 6" longitudinally and has a padded backing. The shape is curved laterally with some angular contours to deflect studs. They fit around the shin snuggly. These guards do not have straps or velcro fasteners to hold them in place. Instead the come with what I can only describe as lightweight elasticated footless stockings. If you pull the stocking over your foot till it is around your ankle then hold the shinguards in the desired position, it is then easy to pull the stocking up and over the shinguatds to hold same in place. Your football hose are then worn in the usual way over both the guard and the footless stocking. No more ugly tape on the outside of your football hose to hold your shinguards in-situ. They are comfortable and practical and reasonably priced.


Rapesco X5-50Ps Less Effort Heavy Duty Hole Punch (50 Sheets) Black
Rapesco X5-50Ps Less Effort Heavy Duty Hole Punch (50 Sheets) Black
Price: £24.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly built and very efficient., 7 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent 2 hole punch. It is very solidly built (mostly metal) and because of that it weighs a little more than inferior competitors. The lever action is smooth and requires much less effort than cheaper models. I found it punched through 50 sheets of 80g foolscap with relative ease. It is a little bit bigger than your common or garden 2 hole punch but this is partly compensated for by the fact that the press plate has a lock down function which considerably reduces the size of the punch when it is not in use. Should last for years and worth the asking price in my view.

Rapesco 827 2-Hole Metal Punch, 30 sheet Capacity - Blue
Price: £12.63

4.0 out of 5 stars A good personal use 2-hole punch., 6 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a robust and effective 2 hole punch. It is probably best suited to personal use because the 30 (80g) sheet capacity would be too small for the larger jobs it would likely be faced with in an office environment. I found the punching lever action to be quite smooth and undemanding in terms of required effort even at capacity level. The confetti sump is straightforward to empty. In summary it works as effectively as I would expect from a hole punch in this price range. I think it would be ideally suited to a student. No complaints from me.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fair to middling lady shave., 5 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife's view is that this is best described as an 'entry level' feminine electric razor. She thought it was only fair to middling in terms of performance. She liked the flexibility of being able to use it dry or in the shower but thought it tugged longer hair and left a slight stubbly rather than smooth feel. She much preferred the slightly more expensive Philips SatinShave BRL170/00 Wet and Dry Prestige Electric Ladyshave which she reviewed a few months back.

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete healthy lifestyle guidebook., 5 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a 1" thick, 218 page, hardback book about 10" ◊ 8". The photographs and illustrations are colourful and encourage you to engage with the core messages set out in the book. The idea is that it provides a complete programme with recipes and work out activities to transform your body shape over a 6 week period. This is followed by a series of lifestyle changes and ongoing exercises intended to allow you to live and eat well and maintain your new body contours.
A key message in the book is that motivation can wax and wane and the secret is to develop new sustainable habits in order to stay lean, toned and energetic.
Each section clearly describes the rationale and theory underpinning the various recommended activities and lifestyle changes as well as step by step instructions.
The food plan recipes include delicious, varied and appetising breakfasts, snacks, lunches and evening meals.
The intelligent workouts require no fancy kit or equipment and are designed to tone your body and increase your metabolism. They are not overly strenuous in nature to begin with and build up towards faster paced more taxing exercises as your body gets stronger and more supple. Recommended.


Hawaiian Tropic 150 ml SPF 50 Pump Air Soft Sun Lotion
Hawaiian Tropic 150 ml SPF 50 Pump Air Soft Sun Lotion
Price: £9.69

4.0 out of 5 stars A nicely fragranced and silky feeling sun protection lotion., 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Living in Scotland it is likely to be some time before I am able to test the sun protection qualities of this factor 50 lotion. However, I can comment on it's physical qualities. It is beautifully fragrance with tropical fruits. When you dispense the lotion the pump mechanism aerates the product and renders it almost mousse-like. A little goes a long way which is always helpful when a skincare product is on the expensive side. It is silky and very quickly absorbed and there is no oiliness, stickiness or visible residue. It makes your skin feel fresh and toned. Recommended.

Rapesco Stapling Set containing 790 Long Arm Stapler and 10,000 x 26/8 mm Staples
Price: £30.76

4.0 out of 5 stars A robust longarm stapler that performs well., 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very effective long arm stapler ideal for compiling booklets etc. It is a front loader and charging it up with staples is straightforward. In my test it coped with 50 sheets of 70g A4 paper with relative ease. The rotating anvil means it can open- pin as well as close-staple. It is a reassuringly weighty piece of kit which should stand up well to repeated heavy use. Probably more suited to an office environment rather than the home/ study.
