Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor Starter Kit with Flexball Technology--Pack of 1
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor Starter Kit with Flexball Technology--Pack of 1
Price: £15.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good clean shave, 27 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I tend to let stubble grow and so don't clean shave that often but i always use Gillette Fusion blades when I do. The upside here is that the blades supplied for the fit in previous ProGlide handles and so aren't specific to this. Therefore, the only difference is the pivot head which creates a left-right style movement for the blade in addition to the up down flex of the razor head.

In any case, the shave was nice and comfortable and perhaps this was due to the new pivot action. Other than that, I can't see that there's any difference and I'm not sure how much of a difference this makes anyway.


AmazonBasics Bluetooth Stereo Headset with Microphone
AmazonBasics Bluetooth Stereo Headset with Microphone

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Bluetooth headset, 27 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These fit comfortably around your head and have an on/off, call pick up and volume controls on the headset which also houses a microphone.

Used these to listen to music on my phone via Bluetooth which was in the lounge while I was in the kitchen. There was no drop off in sound or quality. I was also able to answer an incoming call which seemed to go without issue.

They come in a basic cardboard box which contains the headphones, a USB charger and replacement ear pads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful advice, 19 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm really not the best at focusing on tasks so I was skeptical about another book on focus but found this to be a reasonably easy read, interspersed with op tips and exercises to keep you...focused.

It's quite a colloquial book but I don't mind that and think it adds a sort of personal touch as you are reading. My focus still isn't perfect but definitely think it's improved and there's areas for me to focus on which this book brought out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice value starter kit, 19 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At this stage I can't say if these are good value for money as there is no price attached but I'll assume they're in a 'value' range and similar to an affordable Tesco/Ikea type equivalent.

It comes with 4 dinner plates, 4 smaller plates, 4 bowls and 4 mugs. The crockery is white with a silvery/grey ribbon around the edge and with an Amazon Basics logo on the bottom (out of sight).

The quality seems reasonable - they aren't too heavy or light and are reasonably stylish but wont win any design awards. The bowls are quite deep which you may like or not depending on your personal preference. The mugs are nicely sized for tea/coffee. They seem to be dishwasher safe.

Everything came well packaged which was just as well as the Hermes courier left them in our empty compost bin but managed to bash the outer box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now everything's al'white ;), 6 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a white shirt which unfortunately sat in the washing basket a bit long next to some damp stuff resulting in a slight mouldy thing going on at the collar even after a normal machine wash.

The next time I used the Vanish Gold which conveniently comes with a pink scoop inside but which inconveniently was located at the bottom of the tub. After wrestling it to the top, I used this on the mouldy stain before the wash, put some in the wash and happy days, shirt looks good as new. It's essentially peroxide - a form of bleach, I believe so it worked as you would expect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use dishwasher tablet, 6 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A large family sized pack of easy to use dishwasher tablets.

These cut through grease and grime leaving a nice lemon scent in your dishwasher. I love that you don't have to open the tablets individually and get that super soapy micro-dust on your hands which is a pain to wash off. These just pop straight into the dishwasher tablet drawer and the packaging melts and disappears during the wash.

We cooked fajitas last night and usually there's always some burnt on residue that doesn't get removed from the pan during the wash but these made it come out nice and clean and so would recommend.

There's no price assigned to these currently but if they undercut the wrapped tablets then I'd suggest getting these for pure convenience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helped relax lower back muscle, 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this for a sore/stiff lower back muscle problem I've had for years. I think this is a bit like those infra-red saunas but in miniature,

The box is overly big as inside is the device and an instruction leaflet.. It's fairly compact and has a carry handle. You plug it in and switch it on. It recommends up to 15 mins with no benefit after that. I mistakenly thought pressing the 'on' button activated a 15min timer and then it went off so was surprised 20mins later (this feature would be good).

It heats up almost instantly and if positioned around 30cm away will nicely warm areas such as your back. It tilts upwards which I'd recommend you do before the lamp heats up. Unfortunately, the pivot mechanism doesn't tilt it downwards off the vertical (another nice to have feature).

Afterwards the heat remained in my back and the muscle felt at ease. I need to do a few more sessions but think it's already helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gimmicky but useful device, 14 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've always passed these in garden centres or DIY stores and saw them as ridiculous, gimmicky devices and my opinion largely hasn't changed but I like it and it's really effective at sucking the water off the tiles and shower screen but you do feel a bit of a tube doing this naked immediately after a shower (there's a mental image for you!).

You can buy lots of attachments for smaller windows and a window cleaning dispensing thing as well.

It's expensive and probably un-necessary but I'll use it now I've got it.
