4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly easy for a child to control, 15 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fairly easy for a child to control, with little to no squirting, and washes off the hands very easily, which was a godsend! The colours are true to the way they appear in the bottle. Although it would be better if the colours were slightly thicker, so they didn't soak through porous materials so easily, overall we were very impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastically powerful washer which has halved the time of most jobs!, 28 Mar. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an incredible pressure washer!

Slight criticism out the box is that the only instructions are on the box flaps in the form of a quick setup series of diagrams. The actual manual (which is massive) in the box is simply a range of health and safety warnings.

However, the washer is easy to set up; simply screw on the quick connect hose pipe inlet, plug it in and you're ready to go.

There is a range of nozzles - an adjustable fan shaped one, a brilliant rotating circular one and a pointed jet one. There is also a detergent bottle included which at first wasn't obvious as to how to connect (it is not in the quick setup diagram) - we could see it had a bayonet fitting but took ages to spot that the head which is on a wand that can take interchangeable heads has a connection for it. Even turned down onto its lowest detergent setting it went through a whole bottle before I'd finished foaming up the car so make sure you have plenty!

It is so powerful and quick - I cleaned a patio which in the past would take a whole afternoon with my small washer in just over an hour. Also of note in this feat is that it didn't overheat and cut out like a smaller washer did (multiple times!)

The power lead is long, as is the high pressure hose so you can leave the unit itself and not have to keep moving it - you have loads of range. The coil up high pressure hose is also a real bonus.

There are additional tools available online - I think I might treat myself to the brush attachment.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful reference guide for anyone looking for bodyweight exercise inspiration, 24 Mar. 2017
This review is from: Cell Workout (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a useful book for anyone who is looking for ideas for a complete exercise programme with absolutely no equipment.

There are useful sections on flexibility exercises as well as the exercises themselves which are helpfully split into body parts. There are suggested programmes to follow at the rear of the book, but so far I have used the book more as an inspiration for some different bodyweight exercises to try rather than following to the letter (however I am an experienced exerciser - the programmes would be useful for a complete beginner to follow). The different body areas have markers down the side of the page which show on the end grain of the paper so you can flick between 'chunks' quite easily.

If I had one criticism of the book it would be about style rather than content. It is rather a bland book to read. I understand that the whole concept is that it's exercise which can be performed in a prison cell, but because all of the pictures are of the same person in the same cell in the same lighting it's just a little bit uninspiring to look at!

STABILO beFab Calligraphy Fountain Pen with 3 Blue Ink Cartridges - Turquoise
Price: £8.27

5.0 out of 5 stars A good pen for a beginner and useable straight out of the pack as it includes cartridges., 24 Mar. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice calligraphy pen for a beginner.

It is ready to go straight out of the packet as it comes with 3 blue cartridges. There is also a cartridge blank inside the casing which I have kept as I think it needs to be left inside the barrel to help click a new cartridge into the pen head (although there are no instructions at all so this is guess work!) The blue ink looks a little pale as you write, but dries a really nice dark, slightly purple shade of blue. They are standard small cartridges so other colours could be bought and used.

I'm sure there's technical terminology, but I would describe the nib as medium wide. It isn't scratchy and produces a nice wide/narrow calligraphy style when used at an angle.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great and concise overview of the subject that has the added bonus of being slight in size, and so easy to carry about. The book opens with a brief overview of the skin, hair and nails, and then continues with an overview of various skin, hair, and nail disorders. The photographs of the various skin diseases are of very high quality.


Cressi Unisex Lumia Torch, Black/Grey
Cressi Unisex Lumia Torch, Black/Grey

5.0 out of 5 stars A really nice torch, but note mine and other reviewers comments about accessing the battery compartment!, 1 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I will start off by mentioning (as other reviewers have) that this torch is mildly irritating straight out of the box (although I have forgiven it now...)

There are a full set of batteries included so being a typical bloke I wanted to power up and give it a try immediately! The top of the torch unscrews as per many other torch designs (and has a very secure fit which gives me great confidence at its underwater seal). However, the LED ‘unit’ stayed in the barrel of the torch and in the instructions there is no clear picture of it being like this. The pictures show the LED unit being attached to the lens and collar part so I did initially think it was broken. It took some very vigorous shaking to actually get it to come out to reveal the battery compartment. With batteries installed and (please note!) having lined up the LED unit as per the channels on the inside of the barrel, it all went together easily but this was what was just a bit annoying!

The switch almost feels a little clunky, however I imagine that if you are using it for diving that you may have neoprene gloves on, in which case this would be appropriate. The switch either slides to flash the lamp, or clicks permanently on.

There are two power settings, although to switch you have to dismantle the torch and it’s quite fiddly. I can’t notice a particularly big difference between the two so have kept it on the lower setting which should help improve the LED lifetime and the battery life. The beam and power of the torch is bright and well focussed.

There is a nice elasticated lanyard with a spring slider so you can secure it nicely to your wrist.

5.0 out of 5 stars This has everything in the box you could possibly need to keep hair under control, whatever your style, 1 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very useful hair clipping set. It has everything in the box you could possibly need to keep face hair under control, whatever your style. The only service it doesn’t cater for is an electric close shave but otherwise has everything for clipping, wet (razor) shave, stubble, ears and nose hair.

The heads are easily changed and the adjustable combs click very satisfyingly into place (I once had a Nicky Clarke clipper with adjustable comb lengths and you were never quite sure if the clip would hold the correct length throughout a trim as they weren’t very secure!)

The unit holds a decent length of charge. My only criticism on this front is that the adapter on the charging lead is so cumbersome that it actually slightly pulls the pins out of a wall mounted shaver socket because of the weight of it.

The addition of the wet razor in the box is nice, although I’ve not yet had the chance to investigate the cost of replacement blades for it, which I imagine will be reasonably high……

A very comprehensive clipper set for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars and really looks and feels like a luxury watch, 19 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The quality of the item itself is exceptional, and really looks and feels like a luxury watch. It's a nice weighty and substantial watch, albeit perhaps not suitable for those with slim wrists or who prefer something daintier. Personally, I found the rose gold less appealing in the flesh than it is in the picture, but thats purely personal taste. The sapphire glass is exceptionally clear and bright, and the dial design with its mother of pearl inlay is classy and pleasantly uncluttered. The hand movement is exceptionally smooth, as you'd expect from a Swiss watch. The only slight negative is that the watch strap is very very long, and so needed quite a few links removed from it to make it wearable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The watch face itself looks really smart with the mother of pearl, 19 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The online pictures do no justice to this watch; it really is a thing of beauty. The first thing I noticed is how substantial the watch is, i.e. its a lot larger and weighty than I had expected. For this reason it might not suit those with slim wrists who prefer a smaller and daintier watches.

The dial movement is smooth (as you'd expect from a Swiss watch), and the dial is pleasingly uncluttered. The watch face itself looks really smart with the mother of pearl, and not at all as 'blingy' as you might imagine. I've never had a watch with sapphire glass before, and although I'm not sure precisely how scratch resistant it is, it does look and feel more durable than the glass on my other watches.

I had to have the strap shortened, but as its silicone it was a straightforward and cheap job at the jewellers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice, stylish watch but the strap is slightly uncomfortable, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really nice watch at the price point. It comes in a fairly decent looking box if you were giving it as a gift and doesn't feel cheap.

It's easy to adjust the date and time.

The black face looks quite stylish and the rotating bezel moves round with a satisfying click!

My only complaint is that with someone that has quite a small wrist for a bloke, the strap is quite uncomfortable. Because it is made of quite inflexible rubber/plastic, to have it adjusted small enough for my wrist, the rippled sections either side of the main watch body cut into my wrists and the face sat awkwardly against the flat top of my wrist.

Other than that this would make a nice gift for someone else or yourself as long as you don't have small wrists or are prepared to change the strap!
