SKIN&CO Roma Rosemary and Verbena Body Gel 230 ml
SKIN&CO Roma Rosemary and Verbena Body Gel 230 ml
Price: £20.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Very refreshing but a little pricey, 28 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This contains lots of natural ingredients and is paraben-free, which is a good thing. The bottle has an expensive look about it and in use I found the shower gel it to be a very refreshing, it also foamed very easily and had a pleasant scent that wasn't too over-bearing.

So it certainly has the feel of a shower gel that's of a superior quality to a typical run-of-the-mill gel, but I still don't think there's quite enough of a wow factor to justify the high price tag.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect professional results but a competent all-in-one device at a good price, 20 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My partner has been using this a while and said in 'curling mode' it curls her hair well but only because her hair is quite short, she commented that on longer hair the curling iron would struggle as the it's not a particularly strong curl.

As hair straighteners they work well but my partner found the plates were not as good a quality as her dedicated straightener and overall she found the savings you make with a 'jack of all trades' device like this is offset by inferior performance when compared to buying dedicated curlers/straighteners/crimpers, so it's more suited for quick and casual use.


Rapesco Zero-30 punch Ref 0726 - Silver
Rapesco Zero-30 punch Ref 0726 - Silver
Price: £16.06

5.0 out of 5 stars High strength and great looks, 20 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is fantastic for any heavy duty hole-punching and it can punch holes in multiple pages at the same time. The little pull-out drawer is a great touch and sums up its high design quality.

But best of all, it's the best looking hole punch I've ever had! It's sleek silver looks means it doesn't have to be hidden away in a drawer and it now takes pride of place on top of my desk - the Rapesco Zero-30 definitely puts the x-factor back into hole punches!

Command 17048 Picture Hook Size XL 3.6 kg Load
Price: £12.77

5.0 out of 5 stars A very practical and easy way of hanging pictures on the wall, 16 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Command 17048 Picture Hook is a great way of hanging pictures or mirrors on the wall without the disruption and hassle of drills and raw plugs. It's designed for more heavy duty use so it will support fairly heavy items, you just need to be careful you don't overload it, bit of trial and error. Overall I've found the hook to be very solid and robust and the fact you can cleanly remove it and re-position it adds to the flexibility of the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great hassle-free way of hanging pictures on the wall, 16 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are a great way of hanging pictures on the wall without the disruption and hassle of drills and raw plugs. You just need to be aware of their limits in terms of the loading weight they can support, this can be a bit trial and error but I find they are very secure and can take a fair bit of weight. I also like the way the strips can be easily removed and re-positioned which adds to their flexibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and well constructed with great sleek looks, 14 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have the 3L size version of this bin so it's quite small and compact and perfect for my kid's bedroom. The pedal really adds to the usability of the bin and the lid closes quietly which is a bonus considering how much the bin will get used. The aesthetics of the bin are great as well, the silver finish gives the bin a sleek look, though being in my kid's room means it's going to get smothered in fingerprints, but I've accepted this!

Really pleased with the Brabantia Pedal Bin, very practical design with great looks, ideal for an office or bedroom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blistering wireless speeds, 12 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My current router supports great broadband speeds over fiber but is a little lacking when it comes to wireless coverage in the upstairs bedrooms. Therefore I was looking forward to seeing if the impressive specs of the Linksys WRT3200ACM translated into real world performance.

The router, as with all home routers, is very easy to setup and I didn't need to consult the instructions, I just connected it to my fiber connection and let the router auto-detect the connection type, which it did immediately. The router is packed with features but my main interest was the fast wireless throughput it is capable of, so once it was up and running I took my laptop upstairs where wireless coverage has always been the weakest, and put it through its paces.

Our back bedroom has always had the worst wireless reception in the house so I was delighted to see that the wireless signal was much stronger with the Linksys WRT3200ACM, there was a drop of one bar on my laptop but this was not noticeable and I was able to stream 1080P MKV videos from my laptop completely stutter-free, which was very impressive and a huge improvement over my previous router. Coverage throughout the house is now significantly better and fast wireless streaming is now available from all rooms, so I'm delighted with the this router.


Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, 200 ml
Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, 200 ml
Price: £20.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly removes makeup but still very gentle on the skin, 12 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My partner has been using this and she's delighted with it, she has very sensitive eyes and has to be careful what type of makeup remover she uses. The Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is very mild and gentle and didn't irritate her eyes at all, whilst still thoroughly removing all traces of make-up. It also didn't take off her false eye lashes either, so overall this is a very high quality makeup remover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great looking and very durable watch, 30 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great looking watch from Police, the face of the watch has two dials but overall the watch design is refreshingly uncluttered and minimalist while still having a professional look to it.

It also feels very durable and robust, the only real surprise is the silicone strap, I expected a leather strap with a watch of this quality so this is slightly disappointing, though I will say the strap is very comfortable and the build quality of this watch is generally very impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality speakers that you'd expect from a company like Creative, 30 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been making do with sound through my monitor's built-in speakers which are pretty tinny and underwhelming, and bass is more or less non-existent. So I was looking forward to upgrading to the Creative BlasterX Kratos S3 Gaming Speaker System, and what an upgrade it is!

The satellite speakers give a lovely crisp and pure sound and the subwoofer generates an awesome bass sound, when turned up to max this almost made the room vibrate! My whole audio experience has now been transformed and these speakers can handle anything I throw at them, I use them for some gaming but mostly it's for watching movies and they excel at this, delighted with this speaker system.
