1.0 out of 5 stars No luck, even when more concentrated., 13 Feb. 2017

Tried this in a more concentrated form than advised on the packaging, foxes were straight back on the area of grass covered later that night....

1.0 out of 5 stars Lasted a week!, 4 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Build quality feels reasonable. Sound was good but sadly lost it in one ear bud after just one week. Overall a waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Badger brush..., 22 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality badger hair, helps produce and distribute pre shave lather. The brush is a good size, though the handle could have been weighted a little more to improve the 'feel'. The drip stand is just a piece of plastic - does its job so i can't complain. Overall, a good set for the price. Coupled with Crabtree & Evelyn Nomad Shave Soap Refill 100 g this makes for a great shaving experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!, 22 Aug. 2012
Very pleased with this soap. Quick to produce a rich creamy lather, particularly when you are in a rush for work in the mornings! I felt the lather provided a closer shaving experience yet didn't hug my skin to much - i have sensitive skin so very particular about keep chemicals to a minimum in my facial products.
I tried another soap ('WoolFat', very old school and a real effort to get any decent lather Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap and Ceramic Bowl (120g)).
I have been using this C&E soap for over 3 months now (used avg 3 times a week), i expect it to last quite a while. Nice subtle smell. Thoroughly recommend it.

Gilda ® XL CHAIRBED - BROWN FAUX LEATHER Single Chair Bed / Futon 180cm - 6 foot

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok!, 22 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use as a crash bed when staying over at relatives. It looks smart though given it's height when folded it'd be suitable for children as a gaming chair perhaps.
Material looks smart but cheap feel. As its faux leather (and some type of plastic) this material is not breathable and sleeping on this will result in a quick build up of heat so mind the duvet/blanket tog rating.
I am 5ft 10 and of average build, this chair/bed just about accommodated me. I would not recommend this product as a portable bed for adults; more something to leave in your kids room for children to lay down on and read or watch tv/play computer games (as my nephew has decided to do). Overall this product is not value for money and i was not happy with it; returning it would cost a fair bit so decided to give it away to my nephew. I would rather recommend going for something by the Futon company (which was my original thought) - a little more expensive but the mattresses and fold-ups are more suited to sleeping on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Brabantia Smartfix Bin Liners, 30litre...quality deterioration, 26 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been impressed with the first purchase made through amazon i am extremely disappointed with the second set of 30l bin liners recently purchased. They seem to fall apart when attempting to tug on the handles, after the bin is full! I noticed a difference in the colour of the handles - grey in the first purchase and green in this poor quality pack, perhaps an indicator or the poor quality packs? I'm hoping this is a one off and not a sign of Barbantia cutting costs though i fear the worst as someone else i see on amazon has recently had the same experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the label..., 16 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used as aftershower moisturiser or massage oil this works great. Good as base oil to mix with the smaller essential oils as massage oil (i used ylang ylang - 20drops + patchouli - 10 drops to 30ml of Almond oil..get an empty pump bottle from muji!). Good value for money and delivery was prompt.

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for!, 16 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title pretty much sums up my opinion on this product. It was the cheapest out there and compared to the Scholl product, which i have also tried, the quality of this product reflects the lower price tag.
This footspa features a bubble+heat function.
1)The bubbles work and i've yet to be convinced with the heat function even though the instructions state the spa will only maintain warm water and not heat up the water - the water temp was not maintained after 1hrs use.
2)Overall size of this product is small (compared to the Scholl) and i have size 10 feet so i would suggest you judge what suits you. The foot well could be deeper as i would prefer to fully submerge feet.
3)My main gripe is the 'massaging' beads that line the bottom...they are hard plastic as opposed to soft rubber, which doesn't make for a comfortable experience.
Do i recommend this product - NO. Spend a little more(relative to what you get back in terms of physical benefit!) and you'll want to use the product more often. As for me...well i'll be looking to replace it with a scholl.
