CDR Enfant Terrible 2015 Laudun Chusclan Red (case of 3)
CDR Enfant Terrible 2015 Laudun Chusclan Red (case of 3)
Price: £23.77

4.0 out of 5 stars A smooth-tasting full-bodied red wine with fun illustrations, 20 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Enfant Terrible wine has quirky packaging which looks like someone has doodled on the bottle, replacing 'France' with 'Produit de Genius' and drawing a moustache and spectacles on the chap on the front. It's certainly noticeable and makes the bottle stand out.

This wine from the Rhône Valley has a decent alcohol percentage at 13.0% vol and is a smooth-tasting red to accompany dinner. It's a young wine (2015) and has a pleasantly fresh taste.

In terms of quality, I'd say it's mid-range; I'd be happy to bring a bottle along to a dinner party or serve this to guests.


WORMclear Tablets for Cats and Kittens
WORMclear Tablets for Cats and Kittens
Offered by Purely Pet Supplies
Price: £5.50

5.0 out of 5 stars One-dose wormer effective against roundworm and tapeworm, 20 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Worming my cat is a dreaded chore (she doesn't take kindly to having her mouth opened and a pill popped in) but one that must be done.

This packet contains two tablets and dosage instructions according to the cat's weight are clearly labelled: 1/2 tablet for 1-2 kg, 1 tablet for 2-4 kg, 1 1/2 for 4-6 kg, and 2 tablets for cats over 6 kg.

The active ingredients in each tablet are 230mg Pyrantel embonate and 20mg Praziquantel. According to the leaflet, adverse effects are rare. They are effective against roundworms and tapeworms, although of course if your cat had fleas (a common source of tapeworm infection) they will become re-infected -- wormer is not a preventative.


Marmite Mug Gift Set
Marmite Mug Gift Set
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it, this is an entertaining novelty gift set, 19 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Marmite Mug Gift Set (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This gift set comes with a small jar of Marmite and a large Marmite jar-shaped mug. The Marmite is great spread thinly on buttered toast, or my personal favourite way of using it is a large spoonful dissolved in hot water and included in red lentil soup. It gives the soup a deliciously rich flavour.

Drinking out of a Marmite mug feels a bit odd due to its shape: large bottom and skinny top. But the handle is nice and chunky, and the mug is certainly very sturdy. It's a cheerful gift set ideal for a novelty stocking-filler or a present for someone who's difficult to buy for -- they will either love it or hate it!


Kit Heath Sterling Silver and Rose Gold Plated Infinity Stud Earrings
Kit Heath Sterling Silver and Rose Gold Plated Infinity Stud Earrings
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, sophisticated sterling silver earrings, 19 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These earrings have a simple and pretty design with one sterling silver loop encircling a smaller rose gold loop. They can be dressed up or down: worn during the day without looking too dressy, or in the evening to add a touch of simple sophistication to an outfit. The butterfly back fastening stays on securely.

The earrings come presented in a pretty little cream box which I use to store them in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A durable dog treat bag, 19 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This pouch is made from durable nylon and has a drawstring fastener. The drawstring makes it easy to open the bag and reach into it whenever you need to get a treat out. It has a plastic clip so you can attach it to your belt or clip it onto your pocket, although I find it easier to simply carry it.

There is a small pocket on the side of the pouch, ideal for storing a roll of doggy bags. The pouch is large enough for a bag of treats -- as an example, I keep a 100g bag of Burns training treats in it, but there's plenty of room for a larger bag too.


Roamer Women's AEU831 4725 PE Quartz Watch with Mother Of Pearl Dial Analogue Display and Stainless Steel Bracelet
Roamer Women's AEU831 4725 PE Quartz Watch with Mother Of Pearl Dial Analogue Display and Stainless Steel Bracelet
Price: £445.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and blingy watch!, 17 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an absolutely gorgeous Swiss-made watch which feels really special to wear. The bracelet is two-tone stainless steel which has gold links in the middle flanked by silver. The face is rectangular and has glitzy crystals on both sides. The mother of pearl face is shimmery and looks very pretty when it catches the light.

The watch has two clips which are spring loaded and easy to fasten and unclip. My previous watch clip used to come undone sometimes, but there is no risk of that with this watch as the clips securely fasten.

While I hadn't heard of the brand before, they have been making watches since the late 1800s and have a long history of quality. I certainly can't find any faults with this one!


JAPONESQUE Velvet Touch Finishing Powder
JAPONESQUE Velvet Touch Finishing Powder
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A great powder compact with an appealing artistic design, 9 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gorgeous powder compact; I love the artistic pink and purple design on the lid. The colour is pale and goes well with my fair skin tone. I use it to set my makeup after applying foundation and it leaves a matte finish which also helps to brighten skin and cover up imperfections.

I would like to have had an applicator included in the compact for use when out and about. Considering the price, I'd expect an applicator. Overall, though, it's a lovely compact and adds the perfect finishing touch to my makeup.

4.0 out of 5 stars A large tin full of lovely Burt's Bees goodies, 5 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This gift set comes in a big tin with a zip-up top, which can be put to good use for storing things after you've used the products.

The tin contains six products: a large tube of Soap Bark & Chamomile Cleansing Cream, a tube of clary sage Intense Hydration Day Lotion, a pot of Lemon Butter cuticle cream, a Vitamin E & Peppermint lip balm, a Wild Cherry lip balm, and a Rhubarb tinted lip shimmer.

Strangely, the product listing online states that it contains "Willowbark and Peach Scrub", but it actually doesn't -- mine came with the cleansing cream instead.

The cleansing cream has a slightly medicinal smell and it really tingles when I get it on any sensitive areas, like my lips. So it's definitely one to keep away from eyes. I haven't noticed many benefits from using the cream. In fact, I'm not sure it agrees with my skin type as I've had a few skin issues (blocked pores) since I started using it.

The day cream is fabulous though. It smells lovely and absorbs quickly, without leaving my skin feeling greasy.

The cuticle butter smells pleasantly lemony and does a good job of moisturising my cuticles in this cold weather.

The lip balms, especially the Vitamin E & Peppermint one, seem to be included in every Burt's Bees gift set! They are some of the best lip balms around and I always keep a couple to hand as I suffer from chapped, flaky lips at this time of year.

The Vitamin E & Peppermint leaves my lips feeling pleasantly tingly and moisturised. The Wild Cherry one smells really nice and fruity, and it's equally good.

The Rhubarb lip shimmer cones in a longer, thinner tube than the lip balms. It also contains moisturising ingredients so it can be used as a lip balm/lip tint. It's a deep pink colour and it looks very pretty, great for adding a bit of colour to your lips during the day.

The one thing I think this gift set is missing is a tube of Burt's Bees amazing hand cream. It contains products for moisturising your face, lips and cuticles, and hand cream would be a great addition.


JAPONESQUE Fluff Concealer Brush
JAPONESQUE Fluff Concealer Brush
Price: £11.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A great cruelty-free makeup brush, 29 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great make-up brush made from synthetic materials, which means it's cruelty-free as no animals were used to source the 'hairs'. It's small enough to fit in my compact make-up bag for quick touch-ups during the day or an evening out (and then I can literally use the euphemism of "going to powder my nose"!)

It's ideal for blending in liquid concealer around cheekbones and eyes. I've also used it to apply powder. It blends perfectly, leaving a smooth finish, and feels really lovely and soft. It's also easy to clean and doesn't end up with make-up clogged up in it.


Malée Verdure Nourishing Hand Cream 75 ml
Malée Verdure Nourishing Hand Cream 75 ml
Price: £16.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A luxurious hand cream inspired by African wetlands on a dewy morning!, 27 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hand cream really has a luxurious feel. It's rich and creamy, and it comes in a stylish minimalist white box. It claims to be "inspired by Africa's wetlands on a dewy morning when moisture is abounding, the warm richness of the earth lingers and the freshness of green leaves stand proud showing off their colour and sheen". An interesting concept for a hand cream! Very poetic!

As to the hand cream itself, it is very moisturising. I put it on in the morning and the effects last all day even after washing my hands. The coconut oil and beeswax are very effective. It is quite highly fragranced, however, and while I find it pleasant it may not be the best thing for sensitive skin.
