3.0 out of 5 stars Are You Sure Aerosure Works?, 5 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Aerosure Sport (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the Aerosure Sport breathing aid which has been developed to help amateurs and professionals alike to breathe more efficiently and to increase their lungs performance. It claims to strengthens the breathing muscles with the aim of reducing breathlessness during exertion and to improve general fitness.

It come with a lot of warnings and instructions so it would be wise to study if you would be safe using this device before buying. If you have epilepsy have had a collapsed lung, suffer from blood clots, have problems with your oesophagus, have high or low blood pressure, slow or fast heart rate, have had or have damage to your chest or upper intestinal track, have recently had dental, head, neck, ear, nose and throat surgery, are suffering from sinusitis or a bunch of other conditions then stop reading now.

The problem I have after using for four weeks is that I've noticed very little improvement. Granted I had a good level of fitness before I started using but I would have liked to have seen some sort of improvement. It's uncomfortable to hold being heavy, impractical to use and the vibrations are even worse - it even makes my ears pop now and again.

It's a good idea, but it doesn't seem to have any real effect that I can notice? it's expensive (very expensive) for what it is. The only reason I've awarded it three stars instead of a lower rating is because it does have good build quality and I feel perhaps someone with a lower level of fitness might benefit more - but you could always run a few times instead and spend the money elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small but Elegant, Tasteful and Good Value, 25 Oct. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Red - the colour of the ruby, the king of the gemstones and the birthstone of July. What you are looking at is the "Byjoy 925 Sterling Silver Pear Shape Pendant on Curb Chain" which is currently retailing at just under the fifty pound mark.

This is a small but pretty pendant that comes with striking impact straight out of the box. The curb chain is forty five centimeters in length crafted in sterling silver with a rhodium finish. The chain is a good thickness and looks great - highly polished and beautifully cut. The clasp on the chain is very small which is pretty normal and a bit awkward to open (again pretty normal) but at least it comes with a strong retaining spring to prevent loss.

The stone itself is a pear shaped Ruby (lab-created) which has been cut sharply and comes on a four prong mount. The ruby looks slightly pale in my option. I know it's meant to be pink sapphire coloured however I would have liked just a bit more in terms of colour depth.

At first I imagined that this would look a lot better in yellow gold however I've quickly grown to like the contrast in colour and again the chain is great. Is it worth the cost for a lab created ruby and a silver necklace? It's down to your own personal opinion - however giving the over all quality and effect in this case I would say it was.

Overall however it is elegant, tasteful and beautiful pendant necklace which looks good and looks more expensive than what it actually is.

5.0 out of 5 stars They look and feel the part, 24 Oct. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are the "Toni & Guy TGST2998 X-Large Wide Plate Salon Professional Straighteners" which feature variable digital temperature controls, 42mm wide floating plates, colour lock technology, a long power cable and auto power off for safety.

They come with an LED screen which allows you to check the temperature during use. This is a welcome additional and makes it far easier to control the heat output. They heat up very fast so are ideal for when you are caught short and need to straighten your hair in a hurry - the fact that the plates are so large helps speed things up even more and helps you get through a lot of hair quickly and efficiently.

The build quality is excellent - they look and feel the part and are designed to withstand heavy and frequent use. There is very little to fault here, I've read from some reviewers that the power output is a bit too high for people with thin hair so this is something to watch out for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be quick with QuickBooks, 5 Oct. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
QuickBooks Pro 2016 is a business and office software suite developed with the intent to make anything accounting related easy to manage and understand and to make your company's finances run like clockworks. It will automatically calculate and VAT returns and RTI submissions directly to HMRC, it can produce more than one hundred financial, sales and tax reports, it can operate in multiple currencies at once and can also handle your invoices and estimates.

It also includes a one year Payroll subscription (for upto 99 employees) and you can perform additional useful tasks such as the creations of P45's and P60's. This is a great addition to the software as having the ability to have payroll and to create "P" documents is extremely useful
for a business of any size.

It's easy to install and get up and running. However having almost no previous accounting knowledge it did take me some time to fully understand exactly what everything was and why the software operates in certain ways (however the good layout of tabs and options within the
software did help speed up the learning process.)

The software does require a lot of hard-drive space so you may wish to take this under consideration before deciding where to install it. Unusually some of the terms used do seem to be "American" which can seem a bit strange but don't effect the end result.

I'm not sure exactly what new or improve features the 2016 version offers over the 2015, it may be worth while looking in to any differences. There are a lot of "QuickBooks" software suites on the market and many have different features and abilities so it would be worth studying exactly what your requirements are and exactly what variants would be best for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Great - Forget About All Others, 27 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the "TONI&GUY Limited Edition Fluid Metal Styler Giftset" which includes a Iridescent Titanium Styler (with 25mm floating plates) which straightens, curls and waves and a luxurious heat resistant pouch with separate quilted heat resistant mat.

It's ready to use within seconds and includes variable temperature controls and auto-switch off. The three meter cable cord length is a welcome addition and makes them easier to use. They come complete with a five year guarantee which shows how confident the manufactures are with their product.

In terms of quality, these straighters can not be faulted. They look great and work great producing stunning results with little effort. They are most likely the greatest pair of straighters that I've came across with nothing to fault them - they should be at the top of your list.

4.0 out of 5 stars For All Of Us (None Benjamin Button) People, 27 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Let's face it - unless your Benjamin Button - your not getting any younger, none of us are. There is an entire multi billion pound world wide empire ready to sell us anything and everything that is claimed or "proven" to ease the aging process and help reduce any unwanted lines, bumps and so forth.

This Coldtox Serum from skinChemists is a "formulation of Snow Algae Glacier Water and Marine Collagen" that has been developed to hydrate and nourish the skin with the end result hoping being smoother skin with a reduction in the appearance of lines.

This looks, feels and smells like a cream and applies to the skin just as such. It's non-greasy and easy to use, but does it work?

Personally I think it depends on your skin and exactly what extent of aging you are attempting to cover up. For small lines and imperfections then yes it does seem to gloss over them - making them less visible within no time at all. Naturally the effect is only temporary and you would have to keep using the product, however it does have a visible effect and this maybe all you need?

It is pretty damn expensive however the price holds up when you read the majority of reviews claiming success. I don't know of any cheaper products that are as effective, so it's well worth considering - just save it for special occasions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Budget But Good Quality, 21 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the Braun Silk Epil 5-511 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator which sits towards the more budget range of Braun's range. It comes well packaged and therefore is an ideal gift for anyone seeking a no-thrills epilator. While it doesn't come with a lot of tools and utilities, it does it's job well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time For Bed, No Dreams For Me - Amazon's Basic Duvet Runs Through My Head., 7 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The price of bedding has always shocked me a little, and the price of good quality bedding has always shocked me even more. This is the "Amazon Basics 100% Cotton Single Duvet Cover Set, Green Blocks with 1 pillowcase" granted not the most exciting product name in history, but retail price of just over twenty five pounds did get my attention.

The duvet cover measures 135 x 200 cm and the pillowcase 50 x 80 cm making this a good fitting single set. Its machine washable at 60°C however in the past I've always found that bedding can quickly fade at higher temperatures so I'll always play it safe by washing more frequently at a lower temperature.

It has a bold contemporary appearance - and while green isn't to everyone’s taste, the photo doesn't really do the quality justice with the green being soft and rather soothing. The cotton is reasonable good quality slightly above what I would expect at this price range. More importantly it's soft and comfortable being a pleasure to sleep under (while not having to worry about it breaking the bank).

Overall an excellent quality duvet cover and pillowcase set. Always make sure you have a good pair of shoes and a good bed as if you’re not in one you'll likely be in the other.

4.0 out of 5 stars To Shave? Or Not To Shave?, 31 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the Panasonic ES-RT47 3-Blade Electric Shaver for men. It offers the ability to be used for a wet or dry shave and other product features include a high-speed linear motor, shaped outer foils that are designed to match facial contours and a five stage trimmer for more precise grooming.

Generally it's good to use and does it's job well. There is a useful quick charge option should you be caught out in the morning with a flat battery which I have already found useful.

While build quality is high, it is pretty heavy and I personally didn't find it to be the most comfortable shaver to hold or use. Nevertheless it is still worth considering if you are searching for a good shaver under the one hundred pound mark.


H2D VI Professional Ionic and Infrared Wide Hair Straighteners
H2D VI Professional Ionic and Infrared Wide Hair Straighteners
Price: £93.70

4.0 out of 5 stars If NASA Needed Hair Straighteners - They Would Probably Use These., 2 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Hair Straighteners are one of those items that differ massively with each manufacturer and at each price range. It's a item that you can pay ten pounds for or more than one hundred pounds in your desire for straighter hair, with these "H2D VI Professional Ionic and Infrared Wide Hair Straighteners" sitting near the top end of the scale.

Their headline features compose of 40mm wide polished tourmaline-infused plates (which claims to give an incredibly smooth stroke result) and infrared heaters which allow heat to penetrate deep within your hair. Build quality is excellent, they are smooth and streamlined with a lot of thought obviously being put in to both the manufacture and operation but also the wonderful packaging.

They are easy to use, and quick to warm up giving you the ability to control the temperature (with a wide scale of output options). They feature a long electrical cord which makes them easier and safer to use in a variety of places (without having to resort to the cable being stretched to its maximum length).

The only negatives are that they don’t come with any carrying pouch nor do they come with any heat resistant mat to sit them on while they cool down.

Granted they are expensive but with some things you really do get what you pay for and these are one of those items. They deliver great and constant results and will no doubt make you proud for years to come...
