5.0 out of 5 stars Baby eczema, 4 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have been using this cream and the Weleda Mallow Lotion for about 4 weeks. So far these are the only moisturisers that work on our 8 month old, who has had baby eczema for about 3 months. Already having tried lots of other natural creams and lotions, including the other Weleda baby range 'Calendula' plus also the Neal's Yard Baby Lotion but everything was too perfumed, especially on the face.

Actually we found all the Calendula based creams to irritate his skin and be very drying even the plain sesame oil and calendula extract (possible Ragweed issue), plus some of the range has Lanolin in which we are avoiding. I do realize that they might work well for others but as far as we have experienced this is the best.

Have been applying just to the sore areas on face as often as they become dry. Has a rich consistency which is easy to smooth on, even over very rough skin where it tends to sit for a while then absorbs after a couple of minutes. Not scented and has a mild kind of herbal aroma, not unpleasant. A little goes a long way, though if applying regularly a tube can get used up quite quickly. It is expensive but in our case worth it as really helps at moment. Quite difficult to find in shops, sometimes if we run out before ordering again have found in bigger Boots branches and some health food stores.


Case Logic CD Wallet - 64
Case Logic CD Wallet - 64

5.0 out of 5 stars Great solution to disc storage., 28 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Case Logic CD Wallet - 64
This CD wallet is a safe way to store up to 72 discs. Has 64 spaces in the double sided clear pockets and also a handy removable insert housed in the inner sleeve. I found this addition very useful when needing to only take a few discs with me when out and about, as it is very slim and fits in an additional 8 CDs.
Looks very smart when shelved and as only about the depth of a large paperback fits neatly on bookshelves. An overall great product and a huge space saver for the capacity versus the room taken to store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Dehumidifier!!!, 30 Oct. 2009
This is a great little dehumidifier. Efficient, very easy to empty and has a very useful 'humidistat' that makes it easy to maintain the desired water extraction without making the room too dry.

We have a boxroom that was suffering from massive condensation and mold problems but within a few hours the dampness was gone and the mold has not returned after repainting the affected area. It has transformed this room from a cold and smelly place into the warmest of the house! The noise it produces is like any electric fan, with a little bit of a fridge hum thrown in BUT this is a small price to pay for the benefit gained.

I would recommend this to anyone having a similar problem or who just need an efficient dehumidifier.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS BOOK!, 23 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great comedy with typical 70's sitcom family, who embark upon a nice quiet camping trip in the wilds of Transylvania. Plenty of wolves and villagers with burning torches `n pitchforks but of course... only one vampire!
Wonderful illustrations in this edition really bring the characters to life. Wish I had a copy! Borrowed this from school and read it loads of times, just seeing the cover brings it all back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius, 16 Feb. 2008
Comic mayhem, with the protagonist's point reasoned to pure genius. The hero of this play runs verbal circles around everyone in his path.

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, 16 Feb. 2008
Had an older version of this, with a slightly less off-putting cover, however found what is inside this book to be a nice lighthearted read. Simple to follow cross referencing system, based on a 5 star rating, compares compatibility between both western Sun Signs and Chinese Astrological Animal signs.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you ask for but to be real., 16 Feb. 2008
Quote: "In life, what can you ask for but to be real; to fulfill your potential instead of wasting energy on actualizing your dissipating image, which is not real and means expending your vital energy. We have great work ahead of us, and it requires devotion and much, much energy. To grow, to discover, we need involvement, which is something I experience every day, sometimes good, sometimes frustrating. No matter what, you must let your Inner Light guide you out of darkness"
Bruce Lee's wisdom gleaned from many years committed to the path of self-discovery, expressed here in philosophy, psychology, poetry and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unashamedly funny, 16 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Singing My Him Song (Paperback)
Inspired heaps of empathy and tears of laughter to run freely. No matter where this worldly traveler goes he has a knack for getting to the action. Full of amusing experiences, dubious and otherwise, related freely and unashamedly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Malachy McCourt tells his story, 16 Feb. 2008
This review is from: A Monk Swimming (Paperback)
Malachy McCourt tells his story in a much different tone of voice than his older brother. Like Frank, he raises a smile in his readers but it's a cheeky one. Not as easy to feel sorry for his sufferings, products of self inflicted drunken antics, yet this for me, lends his tale no less relevance in the chronicling of the McCourt family history.

Concentrating on his adult life, this is an interesting insight into the aftermath of a destructive childhood. Sadly for many the result of which, is a descent into alcoholism. Told with humor and not many traces of self-pity.

Most importantly it made me laugh out loud, which I always appreciate. Many years since I read it, but still have a lingering affection for this and his other work 'Singing My Him Song', also recommended.
