SmoothSkin Gold Permanent Hair Reduction
SmoothSkin Gold Permanent Hair Reduction
Price: £299.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Much easier to hold and use one-handed than the Phillips product., 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Much easier to hold and use one-handed than the Phillips product.

Simple to use, once you have read and digested the instructions.

At first a small redness, like being in the Sun for a day is noticed, sometimes there is a small itch, which goes away.

After the acclimatisation period, it is painless and with repeated use - more than claimed on a fair white skinned woman - it works quite well.

However the hair does eventually re-grow, It is not permanent as you would expect.
This shows how resilient our bodies are.

Comes with a discreet storage pouch and a very sturdy box, well three boxes, one inside the other. rather a lot of packing to dispose of.

Instructions are comprehensive and clear and should be read and understood first.
For this to work, you need to be a bit hairy first - don't pre-shave and do not use moisturiser before either.

likewise you should never look at the window when it fires or retinal damage could occur, so no children of pets nearby.

Whilst we are at it - No husbands / partners / lovers either. Concentrate!
(Also who wants to see your hairy legs? - Husband edit)

Seems to do the job (which is a good thing at this amazingly expensive price, considering a flashgun costs 40 quid.- Husband edit)

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a doorbell that people rather than dogs can hear., 16 May 2015

At last - a doorbell that people rather than dogs can hear.

I went two other brands when my old Friedland gave up after 25 years.

It is LOUD and clear.

Works straight out of the box - plus 4 C battery cells.
It has a bright blue LED flasher - switch-able luckily.
Wall mountable and it takes other transmitters too, phone adaptors, extra pushes, emergency calls etc.

I needed none of those, just a clear 90db door bell.

It's worth spending a bit more, having bought tested and thrown Byron (3 units) and '1 by One' from Amazon (total rubbish, only the level of a cats meow - the claim of 85db is a lie) it is worth buying a strong well made Friedland.

Kenwood Pasta Attachment AT936B - for Kenwood Chef and Major

4.0 out of 5 stars This is no longer made and the stock sent was in a tatty re-sealed box with yellow tape on it., 16 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It fits the kenwood Metal chef jobbie, look it up on their site to check.

Very plastic, not designed to last for years.
This is no longer made and the stock sent was in a tatty re-sealed box with yellow tape on it.
Obviously re-sold shop stock.

However the product seems to be clean and it works - plus it was filthy cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to do the job in a reasonable time frame., 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I assumed its a portable handbag size product.
No it's the whole thing, cos the magic is expensive.

Seems to do the job in a reasonable time frame.
However excessive time will prove the product, that's why its expensive and in tiny pots.

However as a man I wonder if astringent lime juice would do the same thing and a bit of polyfiller?

I have been informed that I am incorrect and don't understand these matters!
Okay then, - but I have seen these ladies with polyfiller or something.......... no honest.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Does what it says on the box.

Simple to use, but it hides a high degree of clever science.
These are now faster and more accurate than standard Hospital tests that take a week or two to give results.

Indeed GP's now suggest that the ladies go down to Boots and buy these instead.

Winner.

Not bad, but its a one trick pony.
once you have read what it does, nothing changes, no explanations of where or hit came from.
It does go into male fears and worries in excruciating detail, this gets very boring. I did not buy a Mills & Boon! NO.
Too much detail, we get it, they are scared. Now explore the sci-fi aspect.
Oops the author forgot that it was a sci-fi book and did not.

Rats.

3.0 out of 5 stars In use this device emits pulses of annoying LED flashes., 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not sure if its working yet as we have no rodent problems.
We do have two family members who are terrified of spiders, so I thought it was worth trying - saves my ears from the Screams.

However in use this device emits pulses of LED flashes.

This immediately rules it out of any sleeping areas, where it is needed and also out anywhere you you sit and relax. The flashes are very annoying.

Seen them - now how do I turn them off?
You cannot.

The instructions are tiny diagrams and are appalling.
Despite being a scientist, I cannot figure what the sliders do or don't do as they are different from the pictures, which say nothing.

Could be good, but needs a major re-think on design.

Did I mention its also enormous?
About 4 inches square and covers the spare socket on a double mains outlet.
It also covers the off switch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to do the job, trying to irrigate after dry pollen time, 2 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Seems to do the job, trying to irrigate after dry nose / pollen time.

Terrible time of the year for allergy sufferers. Sadly its lovely Spring time too.
It's dry and lots of itchy pollen around meaning a dry nose, which causes nose bleeds.

This is basically a standard 60 ml luer lock syringe, non-sterile. Commonly used in the NHS.

The trick is the nozzle. Designed to block the nostril without abrasion and the internal fins provided a swirl effect to avoid a painful jet.
As other state, it is messy. The shower is a great idea, but you might feel dizzy afterwards, so don't fall over!

Obviously the saline packs are from the US of A market as they have no idea what a millilitre is and still stuck in Imperial ounces (suck on that post revolutionary former colonists!).

However it is just normal salt.
As said a pinch of salt in a teacup will give about 1% NaCl, just boil the water first and only use it when cool enough to stick your finger in and it is luke warm, ie not actually cold is just right. (Normal Saline is 0.9%)
DO NOT use water straight from the hot tap - it still has some bacteria in, especially from your water tank /pipes/ tap.

Hopefully this might alleviate that nasty cruddy sinus effect built up in dry weather. Yes its gross, but so is life, so grow a pair!
For the geeks:
8 fluid oz is about 230 ml by the way, or if you want it more accurately 236.588237 millilitres and the water should be 37.5 Celsius +/- 3C

Can't tell the difference between these and the nearly finished roll I took off!

The only difference was they did not come in a fancy printed cardboard box, which goes into bin anyhow.

Nice product and it works in my Dymo 400 really well at a fraction of the original label costs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong tags, good quality string., 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong tags, good quality string.

They are a bit smaller than the usual tags and I forgot about the available size is reduced by the punched hole and support ring.

However my printed labels now wrap around the bottom edge with a reverse printed price on them.
Looks super professional as if I had planned it.

Used to give some identification of bird and bug house made by a social community group for sale on the local market.
