4.0 out of 5 stars Sony ICD-UX200, 10 Nov 2010
In sum: Compact, sleek, high-quality binaural sound, compatible - very pleased

Bridges the gap between work for school and the more rigorous demands of higher… Read more

Philips Satinelle Soft HP6408/03 Massaging Epilator - Pink

No stranger to epilation, I bought this after my old Philips epilator sadly broke after five years and I needed to find a decent replacement. At first I tried the Braun Silk-épil Xelle 5170 out of curiosity, to see if technology had improved since my first purchase. With 40-tweezer technology, apparently it had, and my legs were left impressively smooth for a long time after. But used on my underarms, the Braun was a nightmare - so painful and vicious that I ended up bleeding and unable to use deoderant for a week.

So that got returned for a… Read more
