Ultrasport Men's Long Functional Underwear Pure, Grey Melange, XL
Ultrasport Men's Long Functional Underwear Pure, Grey Melange, XL
Price: £34.99

5.0 out of 5 stars base layer, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
BASELAYER
==========
These are perfect for skiing. Keep you warm, are breathable and not at all heavy or thick.

FIT
===
Comfortable. The crotch isn't too low or too high. Equally they're not too tight. They still allow you some movement whilst giving you the additional warmth of an additional layer.

SMART
======
I think they look rather nice. They couldn't be used alone, as they are obviously for under clothes, but They look quite sporty.

BETTER SKIING?
==============
Did they improve my skiing? Did I fall less? I'm afraid this is where they let me down. My skiing remained mediocre and I think I may have fallen more. So if you need some that improve your skiing you may need to look elsewhere.

OVERALL
=========
Smart, comfortable and warm


What They Didn't Teach You in Art School: What you need to know to survive as an artist
What They Didn't Teach You in Art School: What you need to know to survive as an artist
by Rosalind Davis
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.35

5.0 out of 5 stars art school book x, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a well produced book and has some useful advice.

PROS
=====
Looks lovely
Sensible advice
Suited for those who've just left art school
handy tips
well written

CONS
=====
If you're established in the art world there's nothing new here.
There's no advice on the growing area of using mobile

OVERALL
========
Essentially the advice is work doesn't come to you. This can be applied to any area of work really, but particularly the creative industries.
A good thoughtful and helpful book.


Rapesco Report File - ECO, A4+ (Assorted Colours, Pack of 10)
Rapesco Report File - ECO, A4+ (Assorted Colours, Pack of 10)
Price: £10.13

5.0 out of 5 stars report folders, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
PLASTIC FILE
============
They are the plastic folder that you can insert project in using the simple clip. (You'll need to have used a hole punch first.)
You get 10 in all.
They say ECO but I hate when a manufacturer claims they are "green." or an "eco" warrior.
Yes they're made of recycled materials, and they're biodegradable. Commendable. But the process of making them, the transportation from China, etc etc isn't exactly ecological.

FLIMSY
=======
They are easy to use and have the normal characteristic of being flimsy. The spine gives them a strength and they're certainly more durable than the standard plastic inserts.

HEAVY DUTY
===========
I've used them for about a month now and they're quite durable.

PROS
=====
Durable
Not too bulky
light
well made
good brand
good value
look nice

CONS
=====
none so far

OVERALL
========
They are good folders

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 pocket display book, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
DISPLAY
=======
It looks rather nice in real life and similar to the pictures. It's a quite a pleasant way of displaying homework, brochures, or projects.

It's an attractive folder that is suitable for displaying materials particularly as the pockets are clear. It can be used for storage or display.

Well constructed and effective.

PROS
=====
Well made
good brand
lots of sleeves
feels nice
light
durable
superb for short presentations

CONS
=====
none so far

OVERALL
========
It's a niche product which nice looking. It's fine for storing A4 pieces of paper, or for displaying in an attractive manner.
I'll continue using it and if I have any problems I'll update the review. Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars problem free refill, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a high yield HP original cartridge.
Well constructed and no issues with this as it's not a generic refill.
There's really not much you can say about a cartridge apart from it works or it doesn't. This does. But I've also had the cheaper refills without any issues.
I'll update the review if I have any problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars baylis and harding set, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
BASKET
=======
It's an attractive basket which sets out the toiletries in an attractive manner. It contains the following: a body cleanser, a bath and shower crème, a soap, some bath soak crystals and a wash mitt.

SCENT
======
Sea Salt & Wild Mint. I would say it's a more feminine scent. However, not so feminine that if it's in the bathroom it could still be used by the gentlemen of the house.

PROS
=====
Nice looking set
pleasant smell
well packaged
good value when it's on offer
looks impressive

CONS
=====
none. I think it's a pleasant looking, and pleasant smelling set.

5.0 out of 5 stars someone special, 4 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
HALLMARK CARD
==============
The hallmark card range varies from superb to the not so good. They are always printed on good quality card but some are exceptionally cute whilst others not so. I think you you see from the pictures what the card looks like so I thought it'd more useful to indicate if it suitable for a man, woman, child and also to indicate the size for royal mail pricing. OK? Let's go

CUTENESS
=========
9.2 out of 10.

SIZE
====
STANDARD letter size for Royal Mail (under 24 CM x 16.5 CM)

MALE OR FEMALE
===============
It's for a either. It's probably best for someone who like compliments (as it's for someone special.).

OVERALL SPECIALNESS
====================
9 out of 10
The card is actually really attractive. The inscription is sentimental and romantic without being "too" soppy.
It's on nice card and I think it'd please most recipients.

7.5 out of 10.

STANDARD letter size for Royal Mail (under 24 CM x 16.5 CM)

MALE OR FEMALE
===============
It's for a sister and husband

OVERALL SPECIALNESS
====================
7.5 out of 10
This is pretty. It's not a "wow" beautiful card but is quite traditional and I like the 'cut out' part of the card. It's on strong card and looks rather nice. (a little prettier in real life than the pictures)

ONE PENCIL SIZE
===============
If you only sharpen one pencil every so often this is for you. It's a manual sharpener, if you sharpen loads of pencils, consider an electric one. ( Westcott iPoint Evolution Axis Sharpener for Pencils Upto 11mm - Black/Grey )

SHARP
=======
It's a lovely sharpener. Sharpens well and captures all the shavings.

ONE SIZE
========
Yes. It doesn't accommodates all pencil sizes.

TIPS
====
Empty out the shavings holder on a regular basis so the sharpener doesn't clog.

NOISY
=====
Not at all.

OVERALL
=======
A simple pencil sharpener although the desk clamp isn't the best.
