Post-it 653-1Y 38mm x 51mm Recycled Notes Pads (1 Pack of 12 pads , 100 Sheets Per Pad)
Price: £10.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Post-Its, 3 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Post-Its are Post-Its I suppose - sticky, easy to write on, a nice yellow colour.

Incredibly handy when working of for leaving notes around the house.


Philips White Sonicare AirFloss Pro Electric Power Flosser
Philips White Sonicare AirFloss Pro Electric Power Flosser
Price: £74.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Uses a 2 pin plug, 18 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My Sonicare toothbrush is without doubt the best toothbrush I have used, so I was hoping the AirFloss would be another great addition to the range.

I'm not sure what I expected, but really, it does exactly what it says on the tin. You fill the tank with either water or mouthwash, and spray away. There are 3 different settings you can use, and any backspray can be prevented with practice and closing your mouth around the nozzle. It does leave your mouth feeling fresher.

However, is it worth the price tag? I suppose that's for you to decide. I didn't really floss much before, and I don't know how much I'll use this if I run out of charge, but it does do the job.


Igenix AMZ10 Breakfast Set Kettle and 2 Slice Toaster - Metallic Red
Igenix AMZ10 Breakfast Set Kettle and 2 Slice Toaster - Metallic Red
Price: £60.93

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well for me, 9 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're looking for something stylish-looking at a reasonable price, this is a pretty good set.

The toaster works nicely, with a pan for removing crumbs and six timing settings, it also has defrost and reheat (??) settings too.

The kettle top pops open and boils quickly and reasonably quietly, and I haven't had any problem with leaks.

Overall a good duo, but given the leak one reviewer had, I'd be cautious.

The Art of the Jersey: A Celebration of the Cycling Racing Jersey

Price: £14.18

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for keen cyclists, 7 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book for any avid cyclists, or would be an ideal gift for one. Well presented, with detailed stories and photos for each cyclist jersey, any interested cyclist would enjoy this book.


QardioBase Wireless Smart Scale
QardioBase Wireless Smart Scale
Price: £124.94

2.0 out of 5 stars Stylish but inaccurate, 25 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First of all, these scales are incredibly stylish. With a sleek finish and modern glass plate design, it really looks the part in your bathroom. Then there is the app, which (after a bit of struggle connecting with WiFi, I used bluetooth in the end) is nice and simple, and allows you to input goals.

For the hefty price tag, you expect the device to be perfect. However, there are a number of flaws with the product. It can change your weight reading depending on how you're standing on it, and is also quite wobbly. The set up was frustrating as it didn't connect as simply as it said. Finally, be warned the App will only track one person per phone, also, which is a shame for people with families.

Overall, it looks the part, but the top-notch functionality you'd expect just isn't there.

Rexel JOY 280 x 360 mm Combination Boards - Blissful Blue
Rexel JOY 280 x 360 mm Combination Boards - Blissful Blue

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little white board, 11 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Whiteboards are great for many things - doing work, writing lists and reminders, or leaving a message for a loved one. This board is no exception.

The delightful blue border outlines a small white board which is suitable for all dry-wipe whiteboard erasers. There are a couple of rainbow-coloured magnets included to pin extra notes, and a feature I really like, there is a cork board at the bottom for hanging e.g. receipts, pictures (you'll need to buy some pins though).

It also comes with adhesive strips for fixing to a wall, which are very sticky indeed. The size makes it easy for carrying around if you didn't want to stick it to a wall, e.g. to do some work at your desk. Overall impressed.

Clean Cakes: Delicious pātisserie made with whole, natural and nourishing ingredients and free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar
by Henrietta Inman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual ingredients, but healthy, 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The bakes featured in this book are good if you're after some healthy, if not unusual, cakes. This is really for the serious people, as a lot of the ingredients are unusual and may not be available at all supermarkets.

However, the book is nicely laid out, the pictures appetising and the instructions clear.


AmazonBasics 1/4-Inch Yoga and Exercise Mat with Carrying Strap, Red
AmazonBasics 1/4-Inch Yoga and Exercise Mat with Carrying Strap, Red
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice thickness, useful strap, 29 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm really quite impressed with this exercise mat. I don't use it for yoga, just for doing sit ups and exercises in my own home.

It is lightweight, with enough thickness that makes a session more than comfortable.

The carrying strap is really convenient, both for keeping it rolled up and for transport.

HoMedics Neck and Shoulder Massager with Heat

1.0 out of 5 stars Causes more pain than it relieves, 18 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was dubious about how good this product would be, given how it looks and the cost. I was right to be dubious.

This "massager" is nothing more than a hard foam neck brace which vibrates at two speeds - one which is called 'painful', the other which is 'really painful'. There are two straps to pull it really tightly onto your neck, but I can't think of anything worse. The inside is a very hard foam, so you certainly couldn't lie down on the bed and rest on it comfortably. It needs to be plugged in to work, otherwise you need 4xAA batteries. The lack of charging ability is astonishing, but I guess that comes with the price. The heat would be nice, but you can't have that on without having the horrendous vibration too.

After just 2 minutes of use, my neck was incredibly comfortable, and I could still feel it even 5 minutes after taking it off. Suffice it to say, this feels like it does more damage than good, and I shall not be wearing it again.
