HoMedics Handheld Shiatsu Massager
HoMedics Handheld Shiatsu Massager

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Hand Held Pain Relief, 24 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used other products in the HoMedics home massage range, as I am prone to aches and pains that they are pretty good for treating. Unlike previous handheld massagers I've used though, this is mains powered rather than having an internal rechargeable battery. In exchange for being slightly less portable though, this has plenty of power in the motor and is very good at getting focused massage to acutely sore muscles. There are three different heads included which are fairly easy to replace, though you need a good grip to hold then twist them off. Being a shiatsu style massager the range of intensity settings are all on the strong side, so whilst this is great for someone like me with aches in my larger muscles, anyone of a smaller build might find it causing some bruising. The unit itself is also fairly weighty, so if you have a very slight grip or struggle with your hand strength, this might be a bit on the large size for comfortable use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Brushing, 21 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a handy electric toothbrush that would work fine in your bathroom at home, but really suits being used for travel or for holidays. I'm used to the Phillips range of toothbrushes, so I was initially a little skeptical about how this would compare. As it happens the motor fares pretty well and my mouth feels perfectly clean after use. The battery is also better than I expected, with it only needing charging every few days. What is most handy though is the USB charger. As someone who travels a lot with work, there are never enough power points in hotel rooms. Being able to pop this into a USB charger saves me on the number of adaptors I have to stuff in my suitcase. I would perhaps like to see a broader range of toothbrush head shapes available in this range, but perhaps over time this might improve.


Scotch 19 mm x 8.89 m Magic Tape Dispenser Cat dispenser and Tape
Scotch 19 mm x 8.89 m Magic Tape Dispenser Cat dispenser and Tape

3.0 out of 5 stars Kitty Tape, 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fun sticky tape dispenser that will brighten up your office or desk. This comes in one of two colours (I have the black cat) and it is posed holding the reel of sticky tape between its paws. Rather disturbingly you have to pull the cat's arm off to replace the tape as that is where the holder clips open to pop the old tape out and the new tape in. However, luckily for the cat it is easily replaced when the new tape is fitted. This is more useful that not having any tape dispenser at all as it makes it much easier to get hold of a new strip of tape and tear it off when needed. However, unless you're really into cats you might be better off getting a regular designed tape holder that was a bit more rugged and less likely to show bumps and scratches.


Salter Black Ultimate Accuracy Analyser Bathroom Scale
Salter Black Ultimate Accuracy Analyser Bathroom Scale
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Digital Scale, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lightweight set of digital bathroom scales which takes a number of different readings as well as the usual weight measurement Taking it out of the box, I was surprised how little this weighs itself, it is a slim device and the outer edges are only broken up by the buttons tucked away under the rim of the scale on the right hand side. The first thing I needed to do was to add the four riser pegs underneath to allow the scale to work on a carpet but once done I was ready to go. As well as measuring body weight, it measures body fat, water mass and BMI. All of which are useful to monitor if you are even only a little health conscious. The LCD screen is large and clear, though it took me a while to remember which order the measurements cycle through as the icons are a bit small for my bleary eyes first thing in a morning. Individual user profiles can be stored, though as I am the only person using this I haven't had a chance to track multiple users over time. However, for my profile, this has remained fine. Bluetooth synchronisation would have been a good feature, but otherwise there is nothing else this scale is lacking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight Cleaner, 11 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a cordless, upright vacuum cleaner - similar to other models I have used from Dyson or Vax in the past. However, what I like about this is that it is very convenient for moving up and down the stairs in my house, as it is neither too heavy or cumbersome to carry about. The battery pack isn't huge either and gives a god half an hour or so of power before it needs recharging. You could have buy a second batter if you need to clean for longer and have it on charge, but if your house is that big you might be better off getting a corded cleaner rather than relying on batteries. Suction is also good, I don't have pets, so I haven't tried this with but everyday dust and dirt is no challenge at all for this. A handy and lightweight cleaner.


Hot Diamonds Clear Crystal Rose Gold Plated Bracelet of 19cm
Hot Diamonds Clear Crystal Rose Gold Plated Bracelet of 19cm
Price: £99.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Gold Plated Bracelet, 7 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gold plated bracelet that won't break the bank, but it doesn't feel like the best made piece of jewelry I've ever handled. The packaging is plain, so if you are intending to give this as a gift you should consider purchasing something else to box it in. The chain itself is light and should be fine for occasional use, though this might be a little delicate if you're looking for something you can wear on a daily basis. The clasp fastens fine, and should hold up to normal use.


Nivea Men The Ultimate Collection Prepared Gift Pack - 5 Pieces
Nivea Men The Ultimate Collection Prepared Gift Pack - 5 Pieces
Price: £22.42

4.0 out of 5 stars Packed and ready to go, 25 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gift set of shaving and washing products designed for men from the Nivea range. If you like the Nivea mens range, then this is a convenient selection including shower gel, shaving balm, deodorant and more. They are also all in their full sizes, not the tiny travel/sample size sets that some gift collection use. The most notable inclusion is the faux brown leather bag that they are presented in. This is by no means a rugged or exceptionally well made bad, so don't expect to get years of use out of it. However, as an added extra to bundle it all in, you can't complain too much. It even has a shoulder strap as well as the main handle and it fastens with two magnetic buttons. Buy this for the products rather than the bag and you won't be disappointed.


Babyliss Pro Super Motor Clipper
Babyliss Pro Super Motor Clipper
Price: £84.75

4.0 out of 5 stars Cuts to the quick, 25 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been having DIY haircuts for a number of years now and though domestic clippers are usually fine for the job, they do all wear out after a while. There are a significant upgrade for me, as they are a semi-pro set that - admittedly - are probably higher spec than I need for my regular short back and sides, but they are built like a tank so will probably serve me for years to come. The metal body and grip of the unit, as well as its weighty feel immediately make you realise that you've got a sturdy piece of kit here. They cut very well, as you'd expect - though I haven't tried any complex styles. They are also quiet, not silent of course, but the sound of the motor is neither irritating or distracting when in being used. I could do with a carry case or holder for it, as I haven't anywhere to hang the unit when not in use, but otherwise I have no complaints.


SmoothSkin Gold 200 IPL Hair Removal System
SmoothSkin Gold 200 IPL Hair Removal System
Price: £249.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Hair Removal, 11 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used the IPL 120 machine in the past and this is a slight upgrade, though the results have been equally positive. However, as with the previous model this one comes with the usual disclaimer that only certain kinds of skin and certain kinds of hairs are likely to show the best results. A bit of research in advance should help you to find out if you fall into this category, though compared to older models these newer devices are more forgiving in the breadth of the skin types they will work on. For first timers it can be a lot of money to put down when the outcome might not be as good as you'd hope. After a dozen or so sessions, the results should start to show and in particular thick, nuisance areas will be the most visibly transformed. Finer and lighter hairs might not be as noticeable. The unit itself is typically well built, as with others in the range. Although be aware that the device has a limited number of uses and once expired the whole unit itself will need to be replaced, there are no user replaceable parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Power Stapler, 6 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a monster of a stapler - so if you are like me and need to fix together large, multi-page documents, this will eat them up. I need to fix together large documents and contracts for work and sometimes a paperclip just won't cut the mustard. I tested this on a few 30ish page documents and they were comfortably bound in one motion, with no jams or much physical effort on my part. Out of curiosity I also tried the (very) large card box that it arrived in - as this is a pretty big device - and it clipped the card together like it was 80gsm, A4. It might be too big for common usage, but for anyone with regular, larger jobs in hand, this is a great tool to have in the office.
