Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Shade 210, Naked Ambition 14.7 ml
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Shade 210, Naked Ambition 14.7 ml
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality but a Little Difficult to Apply, 23 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The shaped brush makes this very easy to apply accurately and in an even layer.
However, the very long neck of this bottle makes it difficult to insert the brush, especially if you aren't using your dominant hand. It also results in some varnish coating the top of the neck, making it a little messy if you aren't careful.
A very good quality product but a little fiddly due to the design of the bottle.


Braun Series 3 3000 Men's Electric Foil Shaver
Braun Series 3 3000 Men's Electric Foil Shaver
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Basic Model Shaver, 18 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been using the Braun Series 3 3040 for a while now and the opportunity arose to try this shaver, so I gave it a go.
First of all, this is about half of the price of the 3040 and gives as good a shave - very comfortable to hold and use. It doesn't have a hair-trimmer, as this is the most basic of the range. However, I have found that it can still deal with the stubble of a couple of days, so the occasionally missed hair can be attended to.
It arrives fully charged and will run for a about a week's worth of shaving (assume you shave once a day). recharging uses a lead that is the same as my other Braun shavers - five minutes to charge enough for one shave and an hour to fully charge. The need to charge is signified by the green light turning red when in use.
It sounds higher-pitched than my 3040, so you get the impression (rightly or otherwise) that it is running faster.
The plastic cover doesn't have a satisfying 'click' and feels a little loose but covers the head and start button, preventing accidental activation.
It comes supplied with an instruction booklet, power cable and a small brush for cleaning. It can be rinsed under the tap as it is waterproof.
I like it and have no preference between this and my 3040.


Command 17206BLK Large Picture Hanging Strips - Black (Pack of 4)
Command 17206BLK Large Picture Hanging Strips - Black (Pack of 4)
Offered by love Office Stuffs (VAT Reg.)
Price: £3.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual excellent quality, 16 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As ever - excellent quality picture hangers. Used when you want the picture to hang flush with the wall, instead of using hooks.
The black colour makes them less noticeable when used on a frame with a corresponding colour.
They can hold up to 7.2Kg, which would make for a heavy piece of artwork, but I have found this useful for those frames that might warp - the strips that are still attached can support the weight with ease.


Just Contempo 6 Piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Bale Set, Taupe
Just Contempo 6 Piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Bale Set, Taupe
Offered by Just Contempo
Price: £21.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 16 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very nice towels. Light, soft and absorbent.
When washed we normally have to put our towels through the tumble-dryer to soften them. With these towels that wasn't necessary - very soft when just left to air-dry.
They are also lighter than other towels that we have of the same size, so I pack a couple of these when walking or going to the gym.
For some reason they also came with a free cushion cover, which matches nothing else. Black, with 'HOME' in large letters. No idea why but it wouldn't have tempted me to buy in preference to any other towels. However, these towels are worth the purchase.


3M Command Sawtooth Picture Hangers White 3 Hooks & 6 Strips
3M Command Sawtooth Picture Hangers White 3 Hooks & 6 Strips
Offered by supermart USA
Price: £6.52

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product with a long delivery time, 15 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent product for hanging pictures with hooks that can be easily removed without leaving any damage.
I have used this range of products for about seven years now and have only ever had issues with a couple (and I've hung more pictures than I would care to think about). They can be removed easily and even if not (because the tab you pull on can snap on occasions) heating them with a hair-dryer makes them easy to remove when warmed.
The only issue I have with this order was that it took two weeks to arrive - so plan ahead.


Sabre Home Protection SHSRPA01 Runner Personal Alarm - Black
Sabre Home Protection SHSRPA01 Runner Personal Alarm - Black
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and wear, 14 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Small and light personal alarm, which is activated by pulling on the ring at the base. It is easy to wear with the supplied pouch,which is attached to a slightly elasticated strap. The strap will encircle a wrist/arm up to about 20 cms in circumference.
A small button is pressed on one side and a light illuminates on the other side to indicate the power level of the battery. The battery is included and isolated - activated by removing a small plastic strip inside.
The alarm is activated by pulling on the ring attached to the base. It doesn't detach, it just slides out a bit, so can be pushed back in to stop the alarm.
The alarm is loud, but I was surprised by how much you could deaden the noise by clamping your hand around it.
Water resistant and comfortable to wear.


ScotchBlue Pre-Taped Masking Film in Dispenser Large 2,720 mm x 17 m Transparent
ScotchBlue Pre-Taped Masking Film in Dispenser Large 2,720 mm x 17 m Transparent
Price: £15.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dispenser for tailored protective film, 7 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A large roll of 17m long film, with a tape along one edge for securing it to a surface. The serrated edge of the dispenser means you can tear of as wide a strip as you require, then unfold the piece you have to the length required (up to 2.7 metres).
The roll of film is replaceable, so the dispenser can be used again.
The film is very thin but more than up to the task of protecting surfaces during decoration.
An very useful product.


OPI Corrector Pen 4 ml
OPI Corrector Pen 4 ml
Price: £10.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use and Accurate Application, 7 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very easy to hold and use, the shaped nib allows for accurate application.
A spare nib is included in the base and the nib is removed very easily. The instruction do suggest that you clean the nibs but we have found that it doesn't come clean very easily.
It is refillable, but we haven't tried that yet so can't comment on how easy it is (or isn't).
It isn't as flexible as a corrector brush, ut it as the significant advantage of not having to be dipped into the fluid, as it is all contained within the pen.
Very useful and recommended.


Nutrition For Dummies
Nutrition For Dummies
by Carol Ann Rinzler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Informative on Most Aspects of Nutrition, 4 Aug. 2016
This review is from: Nutrition For Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like many of the Dummies books, this is well laid out and easy to read. Divided into 6 sections, dealing with basic nutrition, how the digestive system works, vitamins and minerals from food and supplements through to choosing fast-foods, snacks and alcohol.
There is a very good section on freezing, canning, drying and 'zapping' of food and what it does.
What I found strange, bearing in mind all of the areas that it did cover, was no section on the menopause - it is mentioned almost in passing a couple of times. Then I discovered that the author has a separate book for that - why buy one book when you can buy two.
In all, an informative and well-written book.


Ex-Pro Noiseless USB Desktop Fan
Ex-Pro Noiseless USB Desktop Fan
Offered by ExpressPro
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breath of Fresh Air, 4 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Small and quiet, with a power switch on the back.
The attached usb lead is quite long (approx. one metre) so it can be positioned anywhere on my desk.
The fan can be tilted through any angle you would wish for, as the cable connects to the back of the fan, not the stand.
Good enough to provide a cool breeze and makes the afternoons at my desk far more comfortable.
