Oral-B Genius 8000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Genius 8000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £129.99

5.0 out of 5 stars As advanced as tooth brushing gets, 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This toothbrush really has more features than the average person will want or need, but if you wish to be as technologically advanced as possible in the area of tooth brushing, then this is a great purchase.

The bluetooth-enabled toothbrush will sync with your phone and through the Oral-B app you can record and monitor your tooth brushing - if this is something you wish to do! This might be particularly helpful for reluctant teenage brushers. At the moment the app requires updating to work so I can't comment on its effectiveness, but it sounds like it will help to show any areas in the mouth that are getting missed with regular brushing, which should help to prevent cavities.

Bluetooth and apps aside, this is a great toothbrush which has some excellent features such as the light up pressure sensor that should help to prevent over-brushing. Like my previous Oral-B toothbrush it's comfortable to hold, easy to use, has a variety of modes and provides a thorough clean that leaves your teeth feeling smooth and fresh. The new battery can hold at least 12 days worth of charge which means no more having to take my charger on holiday!

Overall it's an excellent toothbrush, and the only differences I can see between this and the upper model Genius 9000 is that this one doesn't have a travel charger (unnecessary anyway unless you tend to travel for more than two weeks at a time) and doesn't have a tongue cleaning mode. However, if you are not interested in the more advanced connectivity features then you'll be paying more than needed with this model and could probably make do with a cheaper model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek, modern and efficient, 19 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an incredibly smart and sleek looking kitchen scale. It's got a large footprint, like a worktop saver, but it's slim, monochromatic and modern looking with just a couple of small buttons on the side. You can use it as a chopping board when it's turned off, and when it's turned on it works very well as scales, with the surface being very responsive and sensitive to the slightest weight fluctuations. One of the buttons allows you to easily switch between grams and ounces, and also to fluid measurements. The display is large, bright and easy to read.

Storage may be a slight issue if you don't want to leave it out on the worktop all the time, because it is larger than your average scale, but it could be slid into a cupboard on its edge if necessary. There are no instructions with the scale which is a bit of a shame, but it's all fairly self explanatory.

Overall a very impressive looking and well performing scale.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love the idea of these strips - no fuss hanging that doesn't require tools or leave holes in the wall. They're fairly easy to use and they don't look noticeable when on the wall, although they're not suitable for very thin frames. However, the reliability is a bit hit and miss - some stay up indefinitely, some stay up for a couple of weeks, some don't make it through the day. Probably best suited to light frames that aren't too valuable!


The Little Book of Colouring For Mindfulness: 100 Mandalas for Instant Calm
The Little Book of Colouring For Mindfulness: 100 Mandalas for Instant Calm
by Cynthia Emerlye
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.98

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice selection, though some of the images could be better quality, 16 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a small, chunky book that would be good as a travel colouring book, although the square shape rather than, say A5, means it's not really pocket sized.

It contains a large array of mandalas, most of which are quite detailed and will require quite a lot of concentration. They have pleasing patterns involving nature. Some of the pictures appear to be close-ups of certain parts of the mandalas, and those are not such good quality (thicker, blurrier lines), which is a shame, but it does mean you have an option if you want something less detailed and complex.

The paper is bright white but could be thicker and is more suited to pencils than felt tips. On the plus side, only one side of the page has an image on so you don't need to worry about bleed through so much.

Overall, a nice little colouring book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive, 16 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love the idea of cordless vacuum cleaners - lighter, easier to maneuver, and no annoying cable to potentially vacuum over. However, my previous AEG cordless vacuum has a pretty short usage time even when fully charged, isn't anywhere near as strong as a standard vacuum cleaner and has to be charged as a complete unit.

This Vax rectifies these problems and provides a really great product. It's easy to fit together (assembly literally takes a couple of minutes), and the first thing that I really like about it is that the battery charges separately from the main cleaner, so you can hide the cleaner away in a cupboard while you charge the battery. The cleaner works for at least thirty minutes on a full charge, and you can buy a back-up battery if you think you'll need more time. It has a good suction (not quite as strong as many corded cleaners of course, but still very impressive). It works well on both wooden floors and carpets, and the lights are helpful for showing any elusive dust bunnies!

Overall this seems like a great choice for a cordless vacuum, and I love the fact that they offer a six year guarantee with it! Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the investment for neat lines, 14 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've been repainting our house over the last few months, and have got through a lot of tape when masking off areas. After finding standard masking tape to be not as effective as we'd like, we've been using Frog Tape instead, but now with this ScotchBlue tape I think we may have found something better.

Like Frog Tape it truly does block any paint getting through underneath, and it's brightly coloured and easy to apply to walls, skirting, floors, etc. It seems to be quite gentle when coming off though and doesn't appear to take much paint with it, providing you remove it carefully, which is good and means less touch-ups after the tape removal.

Also, it is both wider than our usual Frog Tape and a fair few metres longer, for around the same price, so it seems to be better value. We'll certainly be considering switching our painting tape allegiances!

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful upgrade to the standard USB stick, 12 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used quite a few flash drives over the years but never a wireless one, and it's definitely a convenient development. It allows you to connect not just to your computer but to your phone, tablet etc as well - great for saving photos and videos from your phone into the drive thus freeing up phone storage space, and also handy for watching films etc on your tablet without having to upload them.

The drive works well and feels more durable than others I've tried, with sturdy materials and a high quality expensive looking finish. It's a decent price as well. The only thing I don't like is that it seems to stop you using the internet for other things on portable devices whilst it's connected. Overall though, recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and subtle, 9 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a light lipstick which goes on very easily and leaves your lips feeling moisturised and with a hint of colour. The colour is not very long lasting and you need to reapply frequently, but the texture is pleasant and it's good for those who want a subtle wash or sheen rather than a thick coating. The SPF is an added bonus too.

The Glow-rious Pink is a candy shade which brightens up skin tones and looks nice and summery without being too over the top.

I think it's a little pricey considering the staying power, but nevertheless still a nice product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ice tray, but not cheap, 28 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As ice cube trays go, this is really good. It produces very attractive half-spheres of ice, and they pop out easily from the tray when frozen. The lip around the edge of the tray reduces the risk of water spilling over into your freezer drawers, and the tray itself is sturdy and feels good quality.

The only thing I can fault it for is the price, which seems extremely high when you can purchase very similar silicone ice cube trays in different designs from a popular Swedish furniture store for less than a tenth of the price!
