Ultrasport 10 LED Multifunction Headlamp incl. Batteries - Black
Ultrasport 10 LED Multifunction Headlamp incl. Batteries - Black
Price: £11.47

4.0 out of 5 stars A good and useful product, 26 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Ultrasport 10 LED Headlamp. This headlamp can be used when you are cycling or walking. Perhaps even when you are operating on a patient - only joking, but perhaps when you are working on a car engine or something. I found the product easy to use - in fact my 2 year old has taken to waring it around the house and playing with it. There are different settings for the lamp for example blinking for cycling in the dark. This item comes with batteries. The head strap seems quite durable as does the plastic light. So all in all a good product that I have had no issues with.


A Killing Winter
A Killing Winter
by Tom Callaghan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.90

4.0 out of 5 stars An impressive debut, 24 Feb. 2015
This review is from: A Killing Winter (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A Killing Winter is Tom Callaghan's first book and makes an impressive debut. The book sees Inspector Akyl Borubaev from the Bishkek Murder Squad investigating the brutal murder of a young woman. Could a serial killer be at work ? I won't give away any more plot and spoil your enjoyment. The author has created an interesting character in Borubaev, the supporting characters are also nicely fleshed out.. The plot is well thought out with some good twists and turns. This is the first book in a series and the next book is A Spring Betrayal which I am looking forward to reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up - nice product., 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Aussie shower gel body wash is suitable for both men or women. It comes in a pack of 6 250 ml bottles. The gel foams up nicely and has a pleasant smell which isn't too strong or overpowering. You don't have to use much to get a good amount of lather. It does not irritate my skin either like some shower gels have done in the past. The 250 ml sized bottle is handy if you are going away and don't want to take a huge bottle of shower gel with you. So I would give this product two thumbs up.


Philips Skincare System Wet and Dry Shaving Head Epilator
Philips Skincare System Wet and Dry Shaving Head Epilator
Price: £60.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job well with minimal "ouch" moments., 21 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got the Philips System Wet and Dry Shaving Head Epilator for my wife. She found the product easy to use and with very few "ouch" moments. It is waterproof which makes it nice a flexible to use either wet or dry. This product is also rechargeble and takes around an hour to charge. It also comes with a 3 pin plug which fits into normal household plug sockets. There is also a handy carry case in which it can be packed away into. So according to my wife this epilator does the job with very few "ouch" moments and is nice and easy to use in wet or dry environments. So all in all thumbs up for this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent psychological thriller., 17 Feb. 2015
This review is from: The Ice Twins (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed The Ice Twins. The author S. K. Tremayne has written a Psychological Thriller which concerns the tragic death of one identical twin. The grieving parents Sarah and Angus, move to a tiny Scottish island which Angus inherited from his Grandmother. With Angus away working Sarah
Starts to feel increasingly isolated. Her surviving daughter is becoming more and more disturbed. The question remains "what really happened the day one of her twin daughters died" ?

The plot is interesting and moves at a good pace. S. K. Tremayne also describes the locations very well so you really get a feel of the remote lighthouse and island. The characters are also interesting and nicely fleshed out. The is a really good book and I look forward to reading future books by this author.


Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Rattling Railsss
Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Rattling Railsss
Price: £20.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A little repeatative .....but still fun, 12 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Rattling Railsss. This toy is nice and easy to assemble - the pieces just clip together and no batteries or screw drivers are needed. The snakes head is quite easy to take off which my daughter has done numerous times. There are no small parts which makes it safe for children aged 3 plus. The smallest part is the coiled up snake which is about 2cm by 3cms and doesn't really do anything. The toy itself doesn't do a great deal - you put Thomas in the snakes mouth and press the snakes tail ( the hook at the top of the brown pole), this moves the snakes head up and deposits Thomas at the top where he then rides down the track and back into the snakes mouth. The procedure is then repeated again and again..........As other reviewers have pointed out not the most interesting of toys and can become a little repeatative. However my daughter is enjoying playing with this toy which is after all what we buy our Children toys for. This is more of a fun toy but not much educational value


Nightmare In A Damaged Brain - Uncut Collector's Edition - 3D Holo Steelcase
Nightmare In A Damaged Brain - Uncut Collector's Edition - 3D Holo Steelcase
Dvd ~ Baird Stafford
Offered by dvd-uncut
Price: £24.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightmare In A Damaged Brain in all its gory glory., 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nightmare or Nightmare In A Damaged Brain to quote it's UK title was one of the most notorious video nasties. The UK video was cut as is the new UK dvd. This two disk blu ray is fully uncut. Disk 1 has the uncut version and disk 2 contains the uncut version with a couple of deleted scenes included. The picture quality is pritty good but there are some grainy bits - the deleted scenes are rather poor quality and do not include any extra gore. This German steel book has English or German audio with removable subtitles. There writing on the case is in German. The 3d holo cover is a nice touch. Nightmare is a very gory film with some excellent special effects - none of the CGI gore effects we are subjected to now days. So if you enjoy a good slasher film with lots of blood and guts then Nightmare In A Damaged Brain is well worth adding to your collection.


Fisher-Price Soothe and Glow Owl - Brown
Fisher-Price Soothe and Glow Owl - Brown
Offered by Duncans Retail
Price: £16.18

4.0 out of 5 stars "Hoo Hoo", 3 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Soothe and Glow Owl has proved to be a hit with my baby daughter. The owl hoots a "hoo hoo"and plays a tune when you press its chest. My daughter is able to do this by herself and it has helped her get to sleep. The music tunes are nice a short and not too loud in my opinion. The only thing that does slightly let the Glow Owl down is the control inside it. It's quite big and hard - some extra padding around it would help, especially if your child is going to cuddle up to it. Apart from that Fisher Price have created another excellent toy to help your little get a good nights sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this doll, 3 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have never heard of Ever After High but my daughter and her friends tell me it's becoming very popular at the moment. She loves this doll. This Duchess Swan doll is not your normal cute cuddly doll but more of a slightly Gothic looking princess styled doll. The doll is quite durable and looks well made. The clothes have a nice amount of detail as does Duchess Swan's face. There are some small parts like a bracelet and earings which means the doll is not really suitable for young children (choking hazard). There are several other dolls in the Ever After High series and my daughter is already hinting about adding them to her collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up., 3 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used this Vanish Gold a few times on my whites and have to say it did the job well. Although it wasn't 100 % effective it was as close as I've seen and my whites look, well whiter than white. I would advise you to follow the instructions on the tin and also not use this on Colours or darks. There is not much else to say about this product that hasn't been said by other reviewers. I give Vanish Gold for Whites two thumbs up.
