Viviscal Black Hair Fibers with Applicator for Men
Viviscal Black Hair Fibers with Applicator for Men
Price: £14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars It's O K, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Applying it is a bit hit and miss because it's sort of squeeze and hope something had come out and then brush with the applicator. The gap between applicator comb teeth is too wide in my opinion because if it's meant for thinning hair then why have big gaps. Having said that, if you apply it successfully there is a visible effect of better scalp coverage by the hairs. Drawback is that after a few hours (say by evening) if you scratch your head, you will find black pigment under your nails, so it's not as long lasting nor as resilient as the bumph suggests

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but somewhat sanitised, 20 May 2016
This review is from: Bridge of Spies (Amazon Video)
Great story, and as you'd expect very nicely produced and superbly acted. However it does feel a bit sanitised, almost like Cold War through rose tinted specs

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie version, 15 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is basically a movie of the actors/singers miming to the Böhm recording of the opera. The soundtrack quality is good for the age of recording. Böhm brings romanticism to the brutal score. Picture quality isn't great and at 4:3 aspect ratio it looks very dated. The miming isn't always synchronous with the singing and therefore it looks amateurish, hammy and over acted. Not my favourite I have to say.


Picasso: the colouring book
Picasso: the colouring book
by Dominique Foufelle
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 15 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's hard not to like this book. It's a great idea, an interesting addition to the trend of grown up colouring in books and this one gets five stars because of the quality of the print, very nicely reproduced art, and good quality paper. As a Picasso fan, I'm impressed. It would also make a great gift for budding amateur artists.

Thermos Performance Stainless Steel Travel Mug - 470 ml

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good performance, 12 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice ergonomic shape - no nonsense no fuss very functional, the handle is a good size to hold the cup firmly when on the move and the base is perfect size for the majority of cars' cup holder wells. My hot coffee which I poured in at 7 am, stays warm until at least after lunch (I am a slow sipper through the morning, because I already have a double shot espresso before I leave the house). The only 2 negatives are the size of the instruction booklet which is so tiny that it's difficult to read without awesome eyesight or a magnifying lens. They could have made the booklet three times bigger and still fit into the cup when packing it. Secondly the drinking outlet is too small to be able to take reasonable size sips, occasionally it ends up a trickle.

Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo 250ml
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 1 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a definite thickening effect even on first application. The hair strand feel like they become more thickly entangled as I wash the shampoo through, and also more bouncy after my hair dries out. I've run out of minoxidil for hair regrowth so this shampoo does a good job in between batches of the treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect alternative, 23 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a perfect alternative to stapling. Apart from the fact that the clips are reusable, they also ensure that you don't run the risk of injuring your fingers and keep wasting staples that sometimes don't work properly. The supaclips have become my preferred way to keep document pages together. I can't see a downside at all. The coloured clips are an excellent added innovation to the product range.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite interesting, 22 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's an interesting read and if you're embarking on your first book about music or musicology, with little experience of making music (eg you don't already play an instrument at advanced stage), then this book is not a bad place to start. It reads like a collection of essays, in easily absorbable chapters, ranging from thoughts, anecdotes and concise references to research in areas such as musical taste, some basic theory (harmonies, keys) to applications of music (music in movies, music as background, etc). For me it reads a little too cursory and large chunks of the learning I was already aware of or have good knowledge through being a reasonably advanced clarinetist and having music theory and history knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 18 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A bit more expensive than the current market leaders, but it also looks and feels quite different as well as appearing to have a pleasant fragrance too when you pour it into the litter box. I was worried my cat might reject it, because the texture is much finer and seemingly more dense than the usual hygiene litter, but he hasn't minded at all and used it pretty much straight away, I am not usually a fan of clumping litter but this seems to work pretty well. I also like that you can keep the litter box cleaner for longer because you can just remove the solidified clumps with a scoop and dispose, then just top up as and when with fresh litter. It should half the frequency of full-on cleaning and disinfecting of the box itself.
