Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Steriliser (Electric)
Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Steriliser (Electric)
Price: £44.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat and quick bottle steriliser, 30 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a neat steriliser unit that will quickly sterilise up to 5 bottles, plus other little bits and pieces if you wish. It is quiet in operation, and bottles will stay sterile for up to 24 hours if you leave it closed, so it is useful to just pop it on overnight. It is nicer for baby and for you to use pure water sterilisation rather than tablets which can leave residue and possibly taste. Other reviewers have said that over time there is a tendency to scaling and even rust, so we may need to descale it from time to time to avoid this.

3.0 out of 5 stars This one did not suit my wife, 30 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife has tried this Firm Skin Facial Moisturiser:
This is part of a range of Manuka Doctor products which use purified bee venom and expensive Manuka honey in their ingredients. It is a daytime moisturiser supposed to hydrate the skin. Honey and venom (whether snake or bee) seem to be the fashionable "magic" ingredients for youthfulness at the moment. I tried it cautiously on my face as I once had a bad reaction to a bee sting many years ago. The cream made my skin tingle slightly but nothing worse in terms of any adverse reaction. However, I really did not like the feel of it: it remained sticky and shiny, not a good look on the face. The smell is also too sweet for my liking. I have decided this range is not for me, it may be fine for others - but I will use up the moisturiser just on hands and legs rather than throw it away.


Ancient Greeks (What They Don't Tell You About)
Ancient Greeks (What They Don't Tell You About)
by Robert Fowke
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, readable and informative, 28 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book for children of Primary school age studying Ancient Greece - and their parents and teachers. It presents interesting facts about the different stage of Greek civilisation in a fun way, using cartoon illustrations, quizzes, stories and historical facts in an attractively readable format. Best of all is the way in which the author makes Greek history relevant to our lives today - from our buildings to our political systems ; from our alphabet to our English vocabulary. There are horrible anecdotes along the way, very tongue in cheek and with a good balance of historical accuracy and they say this may have happened ....but?? I learned that Alexander the Great was in fact very small and after establishing an amazing empire died at only 33, and I now know where terms like "ostracism" came from. Very informative and enjoyable.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced After Sun 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced After Sun 200ml
Price: £6.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooling, moisturising cream ideal for sun sensitive skin, 25 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This cream is great for those with skin that catches the sun too easily, with resultant burning or reddening even when using high factor creams. It has a very mild scent so can be used with other perfume etc in the evening. The cream is thick and rich, it really feels cool and moisturising on the skin and is quickly absorbed with no greasy residue.. Particularly good for those with sensitive skin prone to heat rashes or allergic reactions, it contains no parabens or colourants.


Garnier Ambre Solaire SPF 30 BB Cream Sun Protection - 50 ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire SPF 30 BB Cream Sun Protection - 50 ml
Offered by Glamour Online
Price: £6.25

5.0 out of 5 stars All in one foundation/suncream, 25 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife tried this out on a recent sunny city break in Rome:
This BB (Blemish Balm) sun protection cream is really a light foundation with SPF30. My skin tans quite readily and the medium shade blended in perfectly. It gave a smoothing coverage which evened out the skin tone whilst making me feel secure in the knowledge that I was helping to protect my skin. Even though this is sadly a bit late in the day for me after too many years of unprotected sun worshipping, at least I feel the skin damage will not get worse if I use this product. It combines light foundation/suncream in one handy size tube for carrying around with you. I like the Ambre Solaire scent too.


Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun Spray 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun Spray 200ml
Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A great moisturiser after sun exposure, 16 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This after sun is easy to apply with a fine spray mechanism so you can reach those awkward bits. It feels cool and moisturising on the skin, with no greasy residue. My wife's skin is irritated by many beauty products but she has used it on her face with no adverse reaction. As with all sun products, make sure you avoid the eye area though. It contains "cactus extract" and I am not sure what cactus smells like- but this has a pleasant slightly peachy scent which is not too over powering. Our intention is to use the right SPF creams when out in the sun so we hope never to burn, but this after sun will help to keep the skin hydrated and prevent that scaly dried out look you can get with ordinary moisturisers..


Garnier Ambre Solaire Light & Silky Protection Lotion SPF15 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Light & Silky Protection Lotion SPF15 200ml
Offered by CLASSY COSMETICS LTD
Price: £4.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Silky smooth light protection, 16 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sun lotion is a little more liquid than Garnier's normal sun cream, it has a milky consistency. It will suit people who prefer a pouring method rather than a spray, plus those who like something entirely non-greasy on the skin. We find this is particularly easy to use of the face and neck as it rubs in very quickly and leaves no residue at all. The SPF 15 that we have tried out is great for sunny days when you are out and about, you may want a higher factor for holiday beach protection. The smell is light and pleasant, yet another great sun product in the Garnier Ambre Solaire range.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Protection Spray SPF20 200ml
Price: £6.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and effective, 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We have used this make of suntan lotion for years, and it works. This pump action bottle seems to have even better moisturising properties, it is easy to apply and rubs in to the skin easily. It is important for our family that the smell is subtle and fairly neutral - not everyone wants to smell of coconut, mango or other exotic cocktails on the beach! The pump action means you can get at hard to reach parts, but sometimes it can be wasteful so hold it close to your skin.

Post-it Notes - Neon Rainbow Yellow, Green, Purple, Pink, Orange - 12 Pads Per Pack - 100 Sheets Per Pad - 76 mm x 76 mm
Price: £11.92

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy these if you use a post-it note dispenser, 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This pack of square shaped Z post-it notes contains 12 pads, which works out at abut £1 per 100 sheet pad. They are in the familiar range of Post-It neon colours - yellow, orange, green, purple and pink - good for colour coding work but when you write on the darker shades it can be hard to read. The new feature for me is that they unpeel in a concertina Z shape. The advantage of this system is that they can be used in a special Z note dispenser for ease of access on your desk or around the home. However, I can imagine my granddaughter hanging zigzag lengths all around the house when she gets hold of them! Good value pack if you are using a dispenser, otherwise stick with the regular format.

Post-it Recycled Notes - Canary Yellow - Tower Pack of 16 Pads - 100 Sheets Per Pad - 76 mm x 127 mm
Offered by Choice Stationery Supplies Limited
Price: £20.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Buy for Sustainability, 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These Post-It notes are made from recycled paper and are a little paler yellow than the standard issue. The box of 16 pads comes with minimal packaging, the pads are in a simple recycled cardboard box, without the usual additional layer of plastic covering on each pad. So for home ordering and storage they are fine. The stickability and ease of removal of each sheet work just as well as in the standard commercial product and provide good value at £1:50 per pad comprising 100 sheets.
