Philips Sonicare HX6511/44 EasyClean Sensitive Rec&hellip by Philips Sonicare
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Over the past few years Sonicare has become the toothbrush of choice in our family. It seems no matter what the model (there's currently about five in the range offering different degrees of 'cleanliness') you will still end up with the post-dentist appointment feel of cleanliness - at least if you're like me and you use one toothbrush for home and one (non electric) for late starts at work!

Sonicares, however, can be quite aggressive. The models with the extra-super-deep-clean vibrate so fast they shake your pea-sized amount of toothpaste right off the bristles. The result is nothing on the brush and a sink full of toothpaste cuckoo spit and irritated gums, beside the… Read more
Silentnight Comfortable Foam Rolled Mattress, Sing&hellip by Silentnight
Is this a good purchase or not? Still can't work it out.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Naty by Nature Babycare nappies are said to be the number one selling 'green' nappy on the market. Whilst this doesn't mean they are 100% biodegradable, they are about as 'green' as you can hope to be if you are using disposables, which is no bad thing given the number that are thrown in to land fill on a daily basis (7.5 million a day in the UK apparently, so some 'green' when disposing of 'brown' is better for Mother Earth!)

You can feel and see the difference with these nappies - they are unbleached and don't contain plastics and chemicals. They don't leave nasty rashes and don't leak. They are much more absorbent than supermarket 'eco' brands, and are as absorbent as leading… Read more
