4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic diffuser brolly, 26 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad cheap brolly, you won't cry when it gets lost or blown away - it does do the job, just don't place the flash too close to the fabric, or it won't diffuse properly.

Best used with a cheap light stand, but a spring clip and a chair back work too, so does gaffer tape come to that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good thick tape, bit short, but be careful with the sharp blade., 26 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The tape is good quality, it is however much smaller than you would normally buy for packing tape, it is a small 20m reel. For this high price, I'd expect the normal 33 to 50 metres.

The plastic dispenser was known to me from a bigger roll a couple of years ago, it never cut the tape, just your fingers.

Firstly I had to find the end, there is a no-sticky bit, sadly it's not at the roll end, so it's back to trying to peel and edge off, 6 or 7 times. See Photo.

I applied the tape as the tiny diagram on the cardboard suggested, one is then supposed to lift the tape and shear off against the cutter. (See photo) Well this tape is nice and thick - a good point, but there is no way I could shear it off with the cutter, unless I cut the tape BEFORE applying it to the parcel.I was more cautious doing this, that's the way I cut myself on a big box taping last time.
Allowing the plastic thing attempts to hold the tape - gingerly - I found this never worked and going back to my first point, this tape splits into pieces when you try to pick off the end, see the same photo. Just fold it over like all good people do with Sellotape.
Good thick tape, bit short for the price be extra careful with the sharp blade too!

Quite honestly - scissors are a better bet, they are much easier to use.

Throw the silly plastic thing in the bin before someone gets hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp so it cuts through paper like a Japanese Sword., 22 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
S O L I D

I have a older metal version of this, which my daughter keeps pinching, so I got her her own.

Nice warm smooth plastic resin handle now.
RED - so can can find it in the junk in her room.
Sharp so it cuts through paper like a Japanese Sword.

Only tried it on a dozen papers so far and it had no effort at all in punching the lot.

Better than the official issue NHS ones, they are so soft and bendy we can use them as skin grafts !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my mother, who is very pleased with it., 22 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my mother, who is very pleased with it.
As she gets older her letter writing skills have slowed and she finds this device easier to use than a 2 stone dictionary.
Nice big buttons and display for the older generation - some of the others need child fingers and a microscope to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars I found it excellent when using spray Stain block on the ceiling., 22 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used a smaller type of this from Lidl and it's is useful; when drilling holes in bathrooms too.

This is the big brother.
Incredibly long sheeting with a stick top edge to protect walls, soft furnishings whilst painting / drilling etc

I found it excellent when using spray Stain block on the ceiling. Very easy to cover the nearby wall from over spray and also the chair below.
The tack is quite low, so can stay on a couple of days easily, but likewise and dust will stop it sticking, so wipe and dry the area to be stuck first.

Designed to into some sort of dispenser, but Amazon only sent me the re-fill.
However you can just used it as is, just sip off the length you need before unfolding the sheet downwards - it's a right pain if you forget to do this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual ingredient process, 20 July 2016

Sugar, partly hydrogenated palm kernel oil

The EU does not allow hydrogenated food products.
There is a lot of controversy about the process.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fun, silly, but effective onion glasses.
They all look over the top and silly, so why not embrace the silliness and do a Dame Edna.
Gladiolias anyone?

I did order shocking pink, and recieved black, you seem to have no colour choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unless you are a poser, this bag works every bit as well as a £50 case, 18 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very lightweight, but seems to offer good protection.

Used for a Lenovo Laptop, it seems to do the job well enough.
At this price a few scuffs won't worry you, it protects, stores and improves transportation with an excessive cost.
Unless you are a poser, this bag works every bit as well as a £50 case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes the Scholl device more affordable to use., 18 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fraction of the genuine rollers cost at a realistic price.

The device is good, but the price of original rollers is rather silly and discourages use.
Now I feel the cost saving is worth the usage.
