MagiDeal Japanese Culuture Glass Bell Furin Wind Chimes Home Hanging Decor Butterfly Ivy Vine Pattern
MagiDeal Japanese Culuture Glass Bell Furin Wind Chimes Home Hanging Decor Butterfly Ivy Vine Pattern

These are pretty but very delicate.
The thin glass dome tinkles when the sail moves the "clanger" against its sides and creates a lovely light sound.
The pictures are sweet and look hand painted.
I would have preferred the sail to be something more robust than cardboard so they could be used outside all year though.

Bioré Charcoal Oil Control Scrub, 127 g
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Zaps oily skin, 25 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great face scrub that can deal with oily/problem skin without drying it out.
The scrub is dark grey ( thanks to the charcoal) and has a mild fruity scent, it contains tiny beads which gently slough off dead skin cells to leave it clean and clear.
It does contain quite a few man made ingredients along with the charcoal....

Water, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alumina, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sorbitol, Synthetic Wax, Laureth-4 Carboxylic Acid, cera Microcrystalline, Salicyclic Acid, ethylhexylglgycerin, acrylatees/c10-30, Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Benzoate, xanthan gum, Sodium Hydroxide, mentol, polyquarternium-39' parfum, charcoal powder Disodium edta, cI19140, talc, CI73360, limonene, linalool.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A cheap and cheerful set.
This is a budget clippers set, it cuts hair and it has the basic tools you need to cut hair, they are not the best quality in the world but they are up to the job.
I like the adjustable cutting length, it kind of gives you a"half" on the regular lengths and helps to blend two different lengths of hair.
The set is mains powered so you are tied to a socket and doesn't have the freedom of a battery powered set but the cord is a decent length so it's not too bad.
The body of the cutter did start to get warm to the touch after using it for a while.
However for a small outlay this is a decent clipper set, in the 20+ years I've been using clippers like these I've found that even the more expensive ones don't last more than a couple of years so now I stick to budget sets and this set is pretty much on a par with my lower end wahl set.


Hallmark Pop Up Father's Day Card 'Have A Beer' - Large
Hallmark Pop Up Father's Day Card 'Have A Beer' - Large
Price: £4.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Funky, 22 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great looking card- funky and definitely different!
The card is a little stiff to fold out to the crate shape and took a little firm handling but we got there in the end.
The writing patch on the rear is small- this is so,as to not spoil the look but restricts the message length/number of names you can get on there.
It takes a large letter/card stamp as it is slightly bigger than a standard card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed us., 21 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm using this with my Sony tv 📺
The set up was instant- though I do think that there should have been an optical audio cable included in the box rather than relying on you already having one/buying one.
Looks wise it is sleek and modern- very well styled.
Sound wise it made a massive difference, you don't really know you need one of these until you switch it off after using it!
The sound quality was brilliant- crystal clear and sharp.
Bluetooth worked well and we were able to play music on this direct from our iPhone without a problem.

What I didn't like was that after buying this you then have to buy a cable ( if you don't already have one, as I mentioned earlier) and a mounting bracket ( I appreciate it could go on a shelf under the tv, if you have one there, but you see the cables this way and it ruins the effect).

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Green goblin figure.
A standard 6 inch action figure.
This is made from good quality materials, has articulated joints so is can be posed or played with if this is going to a young fan...the quality paint work and casting means it is also good for collectors of this genre.


Beko CFD6151W Digital Display Sense Filter Coffee Machine, 1000 W, White
Beko CFD6151W Digital Display Sense Filter Coffee Machine, 1000 W, White
Price: £59.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent brew, 19 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This beko coffee machine is at the budget end of the market, it has sacrificed some features to keep the costs down but has retained some things that more expensive coffee machines boast.
Things I like

Aroma button- a nice touch to give your coffee a little umph
Programmable- coffee when you comes downstairs in the morning just waiting for you.
Removable water tank- I like to wash this out to keep things clean.
Coffee pot tucks right into the machine body.
Hot plate- with auto cut out as required by regulations
Big jug- the whole family can have a big mug and one or two can even get a refill.
Jug measurements tie up pretty much with those on the water tank

Things I'm not too sure about

No permanent filter- seems a bit mean not to include this and so force you to buy coffee papers.
Oval shaped coffee filter basket- this means that you can't simply interchange an old permanent filter as the shape is unique.
Jug feels a little cheap and the top plastic-y.
The white plastic finish would be massively improved if it was a steel finish.

Conclusion

It makes good coffee, you need to do several rinse throughs to get rid of the "shop fresh" plastic taint but as long as you use a decent coffee it makes a great cup. A fresh brew waiting for you in the morning is a thing of joy and it doesn't take up a huge amount of worktop space.

These are cheap and relatively cheerful.
The small bell is made from a golden metal , it is patterned with a black background (paint) and raised dragon images.
The bell is cast in halves and where these are joined the pattern does not match up.
It hangs from a rough thin rope, this is best described as being a bit rough and ready, it has a small brown bead to hide the join where the rope is tied to the bell.
The "sail" which catches the wind to cause the sound is a small fish with detailed scales, face, tail- again this is a black paint which highlights the details.
The fish "sail" is attached by a thin loop chain to a metal flower shape within the bell, this is what causes the sound.
Sound wise this is a quiet and gentle sound, the bell is small and the metal ringer within is close to the sides of it so it creates a small tinkling rather than a loud booming ring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strongarm, 16 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Strongarm.
8 step "conversion "
This is a transformer which looks impressive and has a lot of appeal to fans of the series.
We found it quite tricky to transform though and it took an adult to do this, the instructions ( which are printed in the back of the packaging) were vague and hard to understand, making me worry that I was going wrong and scared I would break it.
However after a few successful transformations little one got the hang of things and was quite happy chopping and changing between the robot and the police car.
Build wise this is a plastic toy and due to the nature of the toy (twisting parts etc) it is not very robust and care needs to be taken whilst playing with it.
