4.0 out of 5 stars Flattering but Forget the Longevity Claim!, 4 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cosmetic companies seem to make ridiculous claims about the longevity of their products, 24 hour foundations etc, claims which I tend to take with pinch of salt. If you want a very long lasting lipstick you will have to compromise on moisturisation. Ruby Woo by Mac lasts for ages but dries out your lips. This Bourjois feels quite moisturising and tacky immediately after application so I immediately doubted the 12 hour claim.

It's a flattering colour, more raspberry red than burgundy which is a better shade for my pale complexion. It's a blue toned shade which has a whitening effect on your teeth - another bonus. It's just a shame it has the 12 hour label as it only lasts a few hours and will not survive even a snack. If you want a pretty, flattering, easy to apply lipstick this is for you but ignore the longevity claim!

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't dry out, 4 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's difficult to put a new spin on highlighters apart from having different colours and designs but I much prefer these plain yellow highlighter pens from Bic with versatile brush nibs. The USP and the most attractive aspect for me is the fact that they don't dry out up to 24 hours minus their caps. Admittedly I've only tested this claim up to 20 hours or so but yes, they don't dry out so there's much less waste - one less thing to worry about when you're overwhelmed with revision during exam season. As usual a high quality product from Bic which will last a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle Natural Blush, 4 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cream blushes come into their own in the Summer months when you want a more natural look. The Revlon Insta-Blush is about half the price of Clinique chubby sticks and the Revlon version performs almost as well. It provides a subtle wash of colour which can be easily blended with your fingers or, even better, a clean make up sponge. If you want more colour pay off, the good news is that it's very buildable and therefore difficult to mess up application. It is a very sheer product so the Berry Kiss colour appears much lighter when applied to the skin. Probably better suited to paler complexions as it adds a very subtle glow which would be lost on a more tanned or medium toned skin colour.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Lovers of Lavender, 4 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This body lotion is quickly absorbed and doesn't leave a tacky residue which makes it ideal for evening use as the lavender scent aids sleep. You do need to be fond of strong lavender scent or it could seem quite cloying on a par with Parma Violets. It didn't irritate my sensitive skin and it does have a long lasting moisturising effect. My only reservation is that it is so highly scented that it would compete with your usual perfume so I, personally would restrict it to bedtime application. A reasonably priced and effective lotion which would be a great after-sun cream - if you like lavender!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality but sizing of Medium tray doesn't match product description, 28 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pros
Really easy to clean. Says it's dishwasher-proof but hand washing is recommended so I'm sticking with that!
Most definitely non-stick. Cookies and flapjacks just slide off without using grease proof paper.
Good weight, easy to store
Says can use metal utensils but I'd err on the side of caution.
10 year guarantee.

Cons
Might be too heavy for arthritic hands or anyone with grip problems.
Actual dimensions are 34cm x 24cm x 2cm for this Medium size. Not the 38.6cm length stated in the product description. Small would be a more realistic description.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handwriting, Calligraphy and Scrapbooking, 28 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used to love writing with a fountain pen when I was at school so it was interesting to see what my 13 year old daughter thought of this pen. It writes beautifully, really fluidly and there's no irritating scratching sound. Its chunky, funky design will appeal to teens but I'd quite like one for myself as the design makes it easy to find in my handbag. The clip is really sturdy and you can store two ink cartridges in the pen. It claims to be erasable and results using a Lamy ink eradicator pen were very successful and ideal to use if tippex isn't allowed e.g. at school. This would make a great gift for anyone into handwriting, scrapbooking or calligraphy. It's not as sleek and pretty as more traditional models but it certainly brings the fountain pen to a new generation. Of course my teen now wants several of the designs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and Practical, 27 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At last an aesthetically pleasing salt mill to replace our acrylic mill which had a tendency to come apart and launch salt missiles. It looks good, can adjust the coarseness of the salt and is a decent weight. We are going to get the matching pepper mill to complete the set.

5.0 out of 5 stars King for a Day, 18 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
How lovely to have a card which does more than gather dust on the mantelpiece and actually has a practical use. For one day, fathers all over the UK will believe that they rule the household! An interesting novelty card which still manages to fit in a standard size envelope so you don't have to pay extra for large letter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Sentiment Minus the Slush, 18 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good quality card suitable for all ages. I particularly like the sentiment which isn't too slushy but a reminder that we should perhaps express our love for each other more often - for example not just on Father's Day! It's also good to know that you don't need to find a large letter stamp as it's standard size.
