Philips Multi-Groom Ultra Precise Beard Styler Series 1000
Philips Multi-Groom Ultra Precise Beard Styler Series 1000
Price: £17.50

4.0 out of 5 stars ... Multigroom 1000 is a decent little package and a good entry level model, 26 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Multigroom 1000 is a decent little package and a good entry level model. It comes with various heads as you'd expect, allowing precision trimming to accomodate whatever style of facial hair you wish. It's easy to use, designed to sit comfortably in our hand and the heads simply twist on and off - much easier than other brands.

The effect is good, giving an even trim and it fits easily into a washbag for your weekend away or holiday.

Well worth the money, and whilst there are better unis on the market, for this price it is relative bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let she who is without sin..., 5 April 2015
This review is from: Disclaimer (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Never having heard about this author, I was interested in the blurb and decided to give this a whirl, and very glad I am too.

Catherine Ravenscroft is one of those people you are always jealous off. A job in TV, a wealthy partner, lovely house and a seemingly perfect life. to a point.

Then, she picks up a book in which the characters seem familiar...

As she reads on she is stunned to find the story is about her and her discretions many years ago...

Secrets build on secrets and the past truly comes back to haunt her in a book with a great premise written by an author with a fantastic style.

An excellent and slightly disturbing read, making you question your own past at times!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not now Cat-o, 5 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Eschewing the fact the cat will play with it for about half an hour, then eat the box, this is a relatively easy to put togteher indoor house for yoour pet to scratch and gnaw at.

Putting it up is pretty easy if you have ever visited IKEA, which is handy as the instructions are rather sparse. However, using a bit of common sense should see you out this together in about an hour or so.

Once assembled, it has several different levels and features fro your cat to hide in/launch an ambush from. It's well padded and looks comfortable and has several blind spots for your cat to be ensconced in in order to pretend it is Burt Kwouk leaping out to assault Inspector Clouseau. It's not too big though and if you are tired of being ripped to shreds, it is possible to put this putside, although like other reviewers, I would varnish it first.

A good present for those who enjoy training small, furry ninjas.


GPO Jam 3-Speed Stand Alone Vinyl Turntable with Built-In Speakers - Union Jack
GPO Jam 3-Speed Stand Alone Vinyl Turntable with Built-In Speakers - Union Jack

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a really fantastic little record player with built in speakers, 5 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really fantastic little record player with built in speakers. Easy to set up and use, it allows you to crack open your LP(yes, LP) collection and blow the dust off of your lost youth.

Having built in speakers is handy, but obviously does not quite replicate the sound of two or four separate speakers back in the day. It does however, negate the worry of fiddling with cables and arguing about the exact placement of said speakers for optimum sound quality.

The union flag motif is retro and pretty too, altogether a great little package.

It has a speaker at the front of the system and the sound quality you get from it is ok. You will not get the sound you used to have when record players where supported by amplifiers and brilliant speakers or even whole sound systems, but what it does do is allow you to play your records easily without a whole load of fuss and nonsense and if you want to you can hook it up to speakers or a sound system using the RCA line-out.
Best of all though is the fact that it enables you to get your old vinyl out from their dusty land of limbo and relive the time when they were so important to you, (the memories of teenage years wasted!) you can then get them and all their precious memories backed up on your computer/mac with the usb cable to the rear of the system (they even supply the cable and software to do so- a nice touch
The system is pretty simple to use, it covers the three speeds you need for your vinyl, 33, 45 and 78 -all it takes is a flick of the switch to move it to the speed you want and the sockets on the rear of the system are all labelled so you know what to put where if you are going to hook it up to external speakers or transfer the songs to your pc, you can’t really go wrong and the instructions are clear and cover everything if you do find yourself struggling with anything.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A decent if somewhat misjudged life-guide to clothing and behaviour expected of a gentleman. Essentially an extended version of style guides from men's Health or GQ, this sets out to aid the yoof of today turn away from their TOWIEifed YOLOing existence and wear clothes from sources other than JD Sports or Basildon market.

It is a solid source of information and seeks to confirm that being rich does not equate to gentlemanly behaviour.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent easy to use and certainly providing you with more confidence than a generic cleaner. They seem to cut through grease and dirt with ease and have the ability to shift stubborn mess that cheaper alternatives that's for sure. Definitely worth the extra cash especially if buying in the bulk 216 packets.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastic cleanser, smoother than your average exfoliant and thus does not give the instant abrasive cleaning feel of other products. Instead it is far softer and the result comes once towelled and dry. It certainly seems to add energy and vitality to your skin.

5.0 out of 5 stars and a great touch control (with a stylus), 23 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
According to the recipient it's "100% wicked cool". I am assuming this means 'good'. An improvement over the Leap-pad2, this is a solid child-friendly pad that features built-in wifi, and a great touch control (with a stylus).lt also includes a dedicated browser which automatically filers sites takin a web browser, although it's highly locked down to kiddy safe stuff, so no accidentally stumbling onto inappropriate material.
g care of any e-safety requirements you may have.The unit itself is reasonably priced but the apps are expensive - up to £20! However that is the state of the ducational software market and is a separate gripe. a great educational tool and fun for the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars the children in my class loved this book, 11 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
the children in my class loved this book. A good contemporary urban fantasy for children - strong y4 readers and up I would say - these books are set in Dublin and deal with Celtic (and in this case Norse) myth - both of which are comparatively overlooked against Greek/Roman myth.

Some fantasies like this are poorly written and seem knocked out rather quickly - Percy Jackson I'm looking at you. This however was well paced and realistic and gave the children several scares! A great read

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic heavy duty stapler, 11 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastic heavy duty stapler. Solidly made and easy to use, it staples - so far - up to 20 sheets of standard A4 together.

Don't know what else to write. It's a stapler. It staples very, very well.
