Scholl Express Pedi Gift Set by Scholl
4.0 out of 5 stars Pedicure in a box, 17 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The set consists of a Scholl Express Pedi, two replacement rollers, a 60ml tube moisturizing cream and the two batteries needed to run the foot file (CARE: these are tucked away in a corner of the packaging where they can be easily overlooked); everything you need to give your feet a good pampering session, although no pouch to store it all in once you’re through.

The Express Pedi is the main star of the pack and is an extremely effective means by which to remove hard and rough skin from the soles of your feet. It’s possible to use it on parts of the foot where I have struggled to use manual foot files, such as the base of the toes. It doesn’t hurt, it just gently removes the… Read more

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fairly versatile set of lights that can be used indoors or out.

Each LED is spaced about 16cm apart, although it will take a few outings to get the string sufficiently straightened out from its boxed state to achieve the full 19.2 metres of lights. Nevertheless, this string is sufficiently long that it’ll light up a small tree very nicely.

The LEDs are fairly small but very… Read more
Kent's Kitchen Meal Kits Red Thai 65 g (Pack of 4) by Kent's Kitchen
5.0 out of 5 stars Removing the barriers, 15 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I enjoy cooking but have never tackled a Thai dish before, mainly for lack of the necessary spices in the cupboard. Having everything you need pre-measured into three pots removed all barriers from the task and the resultant dish was really rather good – and the kit itself is suitable for vegetarians, which makes a nice change.

The suggestion that the meal can be prepared in 20 minutes was a little optimistic; it took around 40 from starting prep to serving, although I did make two versions (one vegetarian) at the same time. I decided to split one kit into two, which worked well and produced two very fragrant dishes, which smelled absolutely fantastic whilst cooking.

A… Read more
