3.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There's a lot of love on here for this old school style safety razor, and frankly I'm mystified as to why. Like it or not, modern multi-bladed razors were created for a reason - they're just so much better than an old style safety razor such as this. The downside of course is that modern blades are much more expensive, sometimes ridiculously so.

Which is where this retro razor comes in, which uses blades that are dirt cheap.

The whole point of this safety razor seems to be to deliver a plush shaving experience the way your dad/granddad experienced it (delete as applicable), but try as I might I just couldn't get on with it. Despite googling how best to shave the old… Read more
D'Addario NYXL1046 Regular Light 10-46 Electric Gu&hellip by D'Addario
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If there's one thing that all guitar string manufacturers have in common - other than strings - then it's the desire to bamboozle the average guitarist in the street with facts, figures, and more facts and figures until you don't know whether you're coming or going.

So regardless of the claims on the packet, having tried out these strings I like the bright sound of them, and so far they've stayed in tune. D'Addario are generally regarded as a quality brand, although as with many quality brands they charge a premium for their product. That said, I like the sound of these 1046's, so I hope they last as long as D'Addario claim as I won't relish forking out 13 quid all the time.
Daylight Company Mini LED UV Nail Lamp 6 W by Daylight Company
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out of the box this mini nail lamp may well look cheap and cheerful, but it works! It really does seem to dry most nail varnish in the short time that it claims.

It does however lose a star for not being a few centimetres bigger. Those with small hands or feet will have no problem fitting them inside the unit, but those with bigger hands or feet might find themselves unable to fit in all their fingers at once.

That's only a minor niggle, however (and it does say 'mini' on the box). Recommended.
