1.0 out of 5 stars Not even a placebo effect, 18 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these tablets to try and ward off the occasional cold sore, maybe one a month. Yet despite taking these tablets every day for two months they have made no difference and the cold sores still come. Let's face it, cold sores should be known alongside the common cold as 'no known cure' for. No matter how much you spend on creams, how soon you use anything 'at the start of the tingle' nothing does as good a job as it advertises.

As every other reviewer has stated the tablets are very large and sometimes you balk when trying to swallow them. I suggest holding a mouthful of water, putting a tablet in your mouth and then swallowing while taking another gulp of water. Essentially forcing them down. I'm not sure why they don't produce two smaller tablets to take. Although I mainly suggest not wasting your money on these tablets unfortunately.


Crunchy Beautiful Fallen Autumn Golden Orange Yellow Leaves Set Of 4 Coasters
Crunchy Beautiful Fallen Autumn Golden Orange Yellow Leaves Set Of 4 Coasters
Offered by Snuggle
Price: £6.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance., 18 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These coasters look brilliant, it's a great photo and sleek design. Unfortunately although the coasters are well made the design flaw is that they are completely shiny plastic. There's no grip on the base so they tend to slip around the table. Also with the top being sleek plastic I find glass especially has a tendency to stick to the coaster so it comes of the table with the glass. So they are very impractical and I've spilt drinks because the coaster coming with the glass all the time throws you. Very disappointing as they look great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading photograph, 17 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This duvet cover is a nice item although even after the first careful wash I found the beautiful sateen feel disappeared which was a shame. At least the cotton isn't too stiff so it doesn't take long to acquire a lived in feel. It's a lovely colour too and once the sateen finish has been lost anyway it otherwise washes well.

The photograph is misleading though. The pattern knotted area are actually at the top of the bed, not the bottom as the photograph here shows. In the photo at the pillow end of the cover is turned over...this is so you don't see the poppers. This also makes it impossible to sleep on top of the cover during hot weather due to the knot design.

Corduroy Style 43cmx43cm Cushion Cover (Burnt Orange)
Corduroy Style 43cmx43cm Cushion Cover (Burnt Orange)

2.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully soft but substandard zip, 16 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cushion cover itself is lovely, slightly brightly than in the photograph. Great material as well, lovely and soft and the ridge effect isn't too deep. Unfortunately the zip is extremely cheap and poor quality. The first time I put the cover on the cushion a year ago was fine but this year it has broken despite carefully putting the cushion inside. Now I've noticed just how cheap and light the zip sadly is. This is a disappointment as otherwise it's a great item.


Vax U88-P3-B Power 3-Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner - 3 Litre
Vax U88-P3-B Power 3-Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner - 3 Litre

1.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Con., 19 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This would have been a three star review had the machine not completely broken down less than a fortnight after the two year warranty ran out. Two years is not good enough for a vacuum cleaner, even if it did only cost £50. This is not the longevity that you expect from the Vax brand which are supposed to be high end cleaners. Offering a discount on future purchases as compensation is pretty redundant. Why purchase another Vax machine when it may well break in two years time especially when they are other comparable brands in the same price range on the market.

On the plus side the suction was very good and it comes with a decent sized lead. The noise level is high though especially on hardwood floors. Good on all types of flooring and not too heavy to take upstairs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infectiously catchy pop., 20 Aug. 2010
'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep' is one of those annoyingly catchy songs that will have you humming along to it randomly throughout the day. It became Number One in the UK Singles Chart in June 1971 and stayed there for five weeks. The only surprise is that it didn't stay there for longer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mari's best hit., 20 Aug. 2010
Mari Wilson enjoyed six UK hit singles in the early 1980s although "Just What I Always Wanted", was her biggest hit when it became #8 in the UK Singles Chart in 1982. It remains her most popular and famous song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy retro pop., 20 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Girls, Girls, Girls (MP3 Download)
'Girls, Girls, Girls' is probably the most famous song by Sailor and although the album that the song first appeared on, 'Trouble' only charted #45 in the UK Albums Chart this song has lived on. However the single of 'Girls, Girls, Girls' at least made the Top Ten. "Glass of Champagne" from the same album went on to become a #2 hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy pop confection., 20 Aug. 2010
There was no way this could not have been a Number One hit in Britain on the offical charts. It's an extremely catchy song with a good beat, nice lyrics and is definately the song of Summer 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating study., 11 July 2010
This is a fantastic book, very easy to read despite it's slightly intimidating doorstep size. It explodes a lot of the myths of what we think we know about the Victorians and it is full of interesting snippets that you'd be unlikely to find anywhere else, like mice were considered more of a nuisance in the kitchen than the slightly more tolerated rats.

It raises quite a few questions that you'd like answered but I guess that's only inevitable in such an all encompassing book. Great bibliography and footnotes too so it'd be ideal for students.
