HL HEALTHCARE EAROL SWIM by Hl Healthcare Ltd
HL HEALTHCARE EAROL SWIM by Hl Healthcare Ltd
I swim several times a week and am plagued by trapped water in my ears, which often causes ear infections. Since purchasing this spray, a quick squirt in each ear before swimming has managed to keep my ears free of trapped water. I keep it in my swim bag, as the plastic container holds the small glass bottle firmly. It doesn't stop the water getting in my ears, but it seems to help with clearing the water out more easily, and I've not had an ear infection since using it. It arrived in a few days after I ordered, and I already had an ear infection. Despite it not really being meant for use on already infected ears, I tried the spray and it cleared up quicker than I'd expected, no doubt due… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Leaky for small noses, 22 July 2014
These goggles are really comfy to wear, and don't leave the typical goggle marks around the eyes. I swim several times a week, and had high hopes for these, as the fit seemed good....until I got in the water.

They are OK for swimming breast stroke (I put my face in the water) but for freestyle, they allowed water in when I turned my head to breathe. It ended up being so annoying to stop after every length or two to empty the water out that I gave up and reverted to my old goggles. The problem seems to be the nose bridge area - I have a very small nose bridge, and… Read more
Merrell  LORELEI EMME Mary Jane Shoes Womens Merrell
This is my third pair of these shoes, with my previous ones being the earlier version. My previous ones fitted like slippers from the outset, with no rubbing or blisters, which I'm prone to with other shoes, so I had high hopes for these. They initially felt a little stiff, but the fit was fine. I own many pairs of Merrells, and I always take the same size. I wore them outside for about 30 minutes, and came back with blisters on one heel, and the other a little rubbed. Compeeds to the rescue, I tried again the following day, with the same story - rubbing and blisters. I've never had blisters with any Merrells before. Comparing the older version with the newer ones, the heel is higher on the… Read more
