Popband Ponytail Holders, Meadow
Popband Ponytail Holders, Meadow
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and practical, 8 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a set of five hair bands made from soft, stretchy material with a bit of a sheen to it. This pack includes three sweet pastel shades and two bands with flower patterns, all of which are attractive.

The bands are easy to wind around your ponytail, though you do have to put them round a few times to get a tight enough fit. Once they're on tight, they feel secure and hold hair back well. They stay in place all day without the need to redo your ponytail.

For me these solve a few problems. First, they let me tie my hair back after straightening it, without leaving a big kink in it which ruins all the effort of straightening. And secondly, they let me wear a hair band on my wrist, which is convenient, without it feeling too tight and cutting off all circulation to my hand! They also feel more comfortable on the hair than normal hairbands, and they don't pull at hairs or catch hairs in them.

These might seem pricey for a set of five hairbands, but the quality is high and given my previous experience with Popbands, I can say that they last well and are worth the money!

3.0 out of 5 stars Glossy lip crayon, but no staying power, 8 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a twist up lip crayon that falls somewhere between gloss, balm and lipstick. It is very easy to apply and goes on smoothly, leaving a semi-sheer colour and some shine. It feels moisturising and pleasant on the lips.

However, I did find that it highlighted cracks or dry skin in the lips, and that it didn't last very long. It was easily transferred onto cups and glasses etc and needed a lot of reapplying.

The Go Pretty or Go Home colour is a vivid purpley pink colour, which looks less bright on the lips than in the crayon, but nevertheless still packs a punch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable disposable masks, 7 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are quite comfortable to wear, fitting well around the face and able to be adjusted via the metal strip over the nose. The valve allows normal breathing and stops you getting too hot, also preventing glasses from getting steamed up.

They are supposed to be disposed of after a shift, meaning that you only get around three days' worth of protection with this pack, so they are not particularly cheap, but protecting your lungs is priceless.


Heathcote & Ivory Blush Rose Manicure Collection in Tin
Heathcote & Ivory Blush Rose Manicure Collection in Tin

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, strong smelling little set, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely little set that would be perfect as a gift, a stocking filler or a little treat for yourself. You get a very attractive tin with an embossed rose on the front, which would be good for storing jewellery etc once you've used the contents. Inside the tin are three matching products - a pretty but small nail file, a little tin of cuticle cream and a hand lotion.

The cream and hand lotion have a very strong rose scent which is brilliant if you like products with a strong aroma, but be aware that it is strong enough to clash with any other perfumes you may be wearing. The hand lotion leaves hands feeling soft and moisturised but the effects don't last too long and it needs reapplying after a couple of hours. The cuticle cream softens hard bits of skin around the nails and generally improves the look of your fingers.

Overall this is an attractive set and if you can get it at a discounted price then it's definitely worth trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and good looking, 5 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Incredibly easy to attach to the wall with the included sticky pad. Looks good with the brushed nickel finish, you would think it was metal from a distance. Holds a coat, bag or light dressing gown well, but in my experience these Command hooks take slightly less weight than advertised and I wouldn't hang a bag with anything breakable in on them. Aside from that, they're a simple way to put useful hooks up without a drill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely portable barbecue, 4 July 2016
This portable barbecue comes in a surprisingly small, slimline and light box, showing just how compact the barbecue is. Inside the box you find there is not only the barbecue but also a black canvas-style travel bag which zips up and has an long adjustable strap so that you can carry the barbecue easily. This is really handy for portability, protection and storage.

The barbecue itself consists of a few steel pieces which are concealed inside a steel case. The case forms the base for the barbecue and the other pieces need to be unfolded and fit together. This only takes a couple of minutes, if that, and is pretty self-explanatory as long as you use the picture on the box to guide you as to what it looks like. Unfortunately there are no instructions provided either for assembly or for use.

Once assembled the barbecue seems fairly sturdy although given the folding nature of the main bucket-style area, it's not completely secure and I would recommend caution especially if there are children around. It can, in use, obviously get very hot due to being steel, so that's something to bear in mind too, and it takes a long time to cool down afterwards.

The cooking surface is quite large and you could easily cook for four people or possibly more on it, with room for around twelve sausages or six burgers. Cooking is efficient and quick. After use, cleaning it is easy due to the low number of parts.

If you want a barbecue that you can take on camping trips, picnics etc instead of buying disposable ones then this is a decent choice, and it can be used at home as well.

NOTE: I received this product from the seller in return for an honest review.


Heathcote & Ivory Blush Rose Hand and Nail Cream Collection 30 ml - Pack of 3
Heathcote & Ivory Blush Rose Hand and Nail Cream Collection 30 ml - Pack of 3
Price: £5.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute, strong-smelling creams, 3 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a set of three small but sweet hand creams, the perfect size to go in your handbag. Although the three tubes have different illustrations on, inside they all contain the same rose-scented hand cream.

The lotion is medium thickness and feels lovely on the skin, and after use hands feel well moisturised, although the feeling doesn't last as long as I would like and reapplication may be necessary after a couple of hours. It's not too greasy or sticky and absorbs after a couple of minutes. The scent is very strong and lasts a long time, which is great if you love the smell of rose, though bear in mind it might conflict with other perfumes etc if you are wearing them.

Overall it's a cute little set and ideal if you're looking for something with a strong aroma.

The Gossip colour is an orangey-peach colour, very sweet and probably best suited to those with quite fair skin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy aid for present wrapping, 30 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a clear, glossy tape with excellent sticking power. It's great for wrapping presents and is unobtrusive once on the wrapping paper. It is two centimetres wide which is wide enough for most uses. It is, however, not easy to remove once it is stuck on, so if you tend to like to reposition tape this might not be for you.

It comes in a plastic dispenser which easily allows the tape to be extended and ripped off, thus eliminating the need for scissors and the hassle of trying to find the end of the tape. The dispenser can be refilled once the tape is finished.

Overall a good tape but quite a bit more expensive than generic brands and I'm not sure it's quite worth it.


SlimFast 250g Sweet and Sour Chicken Noodles (Pack of 3)
SlimFast 250g Sweet and Sour Chicken Noodles (Pack of 3)
Price: £9.87

2.0 out of 5 stars Taste okay, but ridiculously expensive, 30 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pack of three little noodle pots. They are intended to be used as part of the Slimfast 1 2 3 plan, as part of the 3 snacks or noodles that you can have alongside your one normal meal and two meal replacement bars/shakes.

The noodles are really easy to cook in the microwave and are ready quickly. I didn't notice any unpleasant smell from this sweet and sour flavour. As for taste, it's alright, reminiscent of cheap ready meals or noodle pots in the same flavour. As for texture, the noodles are incredibly chewy and plasticky, and the tiny squares of chicken are rubbery. I didn't find it particularly pleasant to eat, but it worked okay as a quick, simple, hot snack with a low calorie count.

I would give this three stars for the product, but I have knocked off a star because they are ridiculously, prohibitively expensive for a snack. They would need to be a third of the price or less to encourage me to consider buying them again.
