Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine, Whisper, 14g
Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine, Whisper, 14g
Price: £6.29

2.0 out of 5 stars Very sticky, 27 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The colour of this lip shine whisper is lovely, its a barely there pink blush, a colour suitable for pretty much everyone. It was easy to apply and looked lovely on.

However its so tacky, it made my lips feel awful. You know how when someone dares you to eat a doughnut without licking your lips and you are left with all that sticky sugar on them? Well this feels like that.

I was very disappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for a monthly treatment, 27 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lets make something very clear. This is consumerism at its absolute worst. Why in gods name would you need to peel the skin off your face every single day? You wouldnt so please dont, i would wager you would cause your skin irreparable harm.

Acid peels are to be used on occasion, id say once a month, followed by a deep rich night moisteuriser to rebalance the skin.

That being said..

These pads are easy to use, however they do and will sting your skin and will leave it red. They contain AHA so you skin will be very sensitive to sunlight so you would need to make sure your moisturiser has a high spf. They do reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time and can be a good addition to a beauty regime, but they will not be suited to everyones skin.

Overall they are ok. If you use one a month they work out at good value, but if you follow the manufacturers advice? You would be a sucker!

2.0 out of 5 stars Wouldnt bother, 26 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The tape is great but is less than a third of a standard roll.

The dispenser is one of the most useless things i have ever come across and broke the 1st time i used it. The plastic inserts that hold the tape in place snapped when i fed the tape off the roll so a total waste of time.

I wouldnt pay more than £2-3 for this. You can buy 6 rolls of 66m tape for a fiver so not sure why they are charging almost a tenner for this.

Deary deary me.

I love Kresley, have read all of her books and i had put off reading the 3 books in this series because of all the bad reviews.

They were right.

I am not sure what she was thinking quite frankly, a girl living in nebraska in college is accosted by a russian who had broken into her house, kidnaps her, takes her to russia to meet her biological father who she has never met, who happens to be a mafia boss, who then refuses to let her leave for her own safety.

Yes ok.

Then the man that kidnaps her Alex, they start to sleep together, and its all you will submit to me, im going to tie you up, bend to my will, spank you, blah blah and this intelligent woman does it right away? Then of course there is the overuse of the word mons, having the big "O" multiple times from a finger which honestly made me laugh out loud.

Its really terrible, this is bad bad writing which is surprising considering kc is such an established author.


STABILO Sensor wallet 8 assorted colours
STABILO Sensor wallet 8 assorted colours

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the 88's and a close second to the 68's, 25 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fab fab fab. These are almost better than my Stabilo 68's and i LOVE my 68's.

The pen is nice and chunky and feels lovely in the hand. There is a code on the side of each pen thats lets you know what shade it is which is very handy for reordering and for doing colour match charts against other stabilo pen ranges. I have the 68's the 88's, the pointmax, and now the sensors.

My favourites are the 68's because they flow well, have a massive range of colours and dont streak over large areas which make them perfect for my artwork. The sensors are now a hairs breadth away from being better than the 68's. They are much better than my 88's. The flow is great, the colours nice and sharp, they do not scratch or pill the paper, do not bleed and do not streak. However they are quite limited at the moment because they only come in 8 colours. I think they really need to expand this range to a full range of 36/48 colours.

Very impressed, thank you Stabilo.


Hallmark Mum Mother's Day Card "Super Sized Hug" - Medium
Hallmark Mum Mother's Day Card "Super Sized Hug" - Medium
Price: £2.70

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet, 25 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a large and lovely card with a very sweet sentiment.

The pink is very bright pink and is very girly and really stands out. There are lovely shiny gold accents on the front of the card that make it seem more expensive than it is. Definitely one for under 10's to send to their mum, it will make her warm and fuzzy.

The card is of good quality and is a standard letter size.

3.0 out of 5 stars Go into superdrug and test them first, 25 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got the natural rose, which i had assumed was going to be a natural pinky shade. Wrong. Its a bit tango orange for my skin type and looked like i had gone to battle with donald trump.

I cannot comment on longeivity because i washed it right off.

Disappointing.


The Kicking the Bucket List
The Kicking the Bucket List

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very charming and funny, 24 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I loved this book. It has a very simple story, 3 sisters miles apart in personalities and temperaments are bought together by the death of their mother.

Their mother has a twisted sense of humour and wanting to have the last word and designs a clause in her will that forces the girls to spend a year together whilst helping each other in a series of tasks to be in chance of receiving their inheritance.

This she hopes will make them realise that the girls will only ever have each other.

This made me laugh out loud and cry in equal measure. I have 2 brothers, neither of whom i speak too apart from the odd birthday and christmas card, and i live 200 miles away from. It would just be like my own mother to pull a stunt like this, which is why i think i resonated with it so much.


Ribena Mango and Lime Squash, 850 ml
Ribena Mango and Lime Squash, 850 ml

Ribena is the only squash apart from Vimto that i will drink because it contains real fruit juice, doesnt taste like chemicals and has no artificial sweetners in it.

I would rather drink this with real sugar in it, than others drinks that contain dangerous chemicals like aspartame in.

This tastes like tropical sunshine, its nice and refreshing, tastes much better when super chilled, and whilst it will never take the place of Blackcurrant Ribena in my heart it runs a close 2nd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 24 Feb. 2017

I have had many walkers shortbread biscuits and these are the only ones i would not buy again.

They lacked the buttery taste of the normal shortbread, the chocolate tasted a bit artifical and there were not enough chocolate chips.

Love the normal walkers shortbreads though but these fall a bit short.
