5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious T-shirt, although very long, 23 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a glorious T-shirt, and fits just as I expected - although it is extraordinarily long, and I could probably wear it as a dress without raising any eyebrows! What I didn't know until I had ordered it is that it was going to be shipped from America rather than the UK, but I suppose ten days is reasonable for that distance. And I am certainly glad to have it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not recommended, 14 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not good at all. One never really worked, and the others had to be squeezed and rotated again and again before they cut the foil. We threw them away and bought a Le Creuset one, many times the price of these but many times the quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 14 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a superb instrument! We started off by buying cheaper ones, but they didn't work well, not cutting at the first attempt. This one, however, works first time every time, and gives the strong impression that it will last us for many years. A fine example of "you get what you pay for".

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the T-shirt, but it has sprung a hole already., 14 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really nice T-shirt, in a lovely bright colour which doesn't run in the wash. Sadly, after two washes a tiny hole has appeared in the fabric (it hasn't snagged on anything, it has just given way). I suppose with a T-shirt as cheap as this one I shouldn't complain. I had also bought the yellow one and it is still hole-free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generously sized and warmly welcoming, 2 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, I read all the reviews saying how generously-sized this robe is; and I still went ahead and ordered a size larger than I thought I would need. And it is large enough and more; it wraps well around me, but I have had to fold up the sleeves by about six inches, and them hem comes down nearly to the floor. It is warm and welcoming and luxurious, and I always look forward to putting it on when I get out of the shower; the terry-towelling is of excellent quality, thick and soft and absorbent, and once it has been washed a few times (never, ever with fabric conditioner!) and line-dried it should become more exfoliant. Definitely recommended - but, trust me, you really don't need to order a larger size than you think you'll need!

2.0 out of 5 stars Far too small - why do they not show circumference measurements?, 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think it only reasonable to assume that sizing for a finger stall should take into account the injury and dressings on the finger which it is supposed to cover - but such is not the case. I am not sure whether this Medium would have fitted on my post-operative finger even without dressings, let alone the gutter splint which I have to wear every night for months, and to keep which in place overnight was the purpose of buying this stall. Why on earth don't they show the finger circumference for which each size is intended? Perhaps they actually want to make more money by selling ones which are too small, and then getting re-orders for larger sizes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly - but I got in a terrible mess., 30 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all - it works. Very well indeed. I used it for facial waxing, and it hardly irritated my skin at all - the slight redness has already gone half an hour later, without having to use ice or powder to soothe it. (Caveat: other people's skin will vary.) But I have learned a lot in my first attempt at using the wax! Of course, these hints won't all apply to other parts of the body.

1. It took 2.5 minutes in the microwave on high before it reached the consistency of runny honey, after being stirred. The upper part can appear nice and runny while the lower part is still very stiff, so stirring and re-heating is essential.

2. Wear disposable gloves. Removing bits of wax from under my fingernails was very tedious.

3. For facial waxing, cut the long paper strips into smaller pieces in advance, so that you have a fresh, non-sticky, piece for each section of waxing.

4. If you will be leaning over the wash-hand basin to peer into the mirror as you wax, fill it with cold water first, so that drips of wax will "set" in the water and can be lifted out, rather than stick to the enamel of the basin from which they will have to be scraped off.

5. The tiny phial of blue oil which comes with the wax is effective at removing any remaining wax from the skin (although not so good on nails, basin, clothing etc.); but the vegetable (rapeseed) oil which I always have in the kitchen was just as effective, and will be very much cheaper.

5. Wear a plasticised apron, from which the wax can be wiped or scraped later - fortunately I have one in the house which I rarely use, which will now come in handy. I dripped some wax on my T-shirt, which is now soaked with oil in an attempt to remove it, and I doubt whether the oil stain will ever come out in the wash. I don't intend to destroy a T-shirt at every waxing!

But overall I am very pleased with this wax, and will certainly continue to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needed first aid on arrival but now fine, 19 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This got a bit knocked about in transit, as its only reinforcement (between the bubble wrap and the plastic bag) was a folded sheet of cardboard; so as well as getting a good wreath for the front door I got a 3-D puzzle! But once I had relocated lots of the little green plastic prongs into their intended little green plastic tubes it all held together well - although, as always in such circumstances, I ended up with a couple of little bits left over which didn't seem to have any natural home whatsoever. They'll be handy for spares. One of the fir cones (which are glued on) had fallen off, but it's not hard to glue that back on. I think this should do nicely over Christmas, and even (so long as I pack it up well afterwards) last for several years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do anything, 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At this price I thought it would be worth a try, as I always have a vase of flowers on the mantelpiece, and I used it for a couple of months. However, it made no discernable difference to the cleanliness of the water, which was just as liable to turn green with this disc as without it. A waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for its purpose, 12 Oct. 2015

Perfect for its purpose. Flexible enough to carry comfortably on one hip when going out to the washing line; sturdy enough to keep all its contents in place. Strongly recommended.
