3.0 out of 5 stars Not a replacement for butter or olive oil, 26 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very curious one to review as im seriously undecided whether i like it or not.

There is no coconut smell, none at all, there is a mild coconut taste when eaten raw with a rather strange aftertaste.

Cooking with it was interesting, i cooked some bacon and eggs and wasnt that impressed wit the taste of it as i could taste coconut in every bite which if im honest i found a little gross.

I then cooked a chicken satay stir fry and this is where it came alive, the chicken was moist and delicious, really enhanced the satay flavour.

Tried it on a salad, didnt like it, tried it on bread instead of butter and found it repulsive, so ive come to the conclusion that is great in its genre but not as a replacement for butter or olive oil.

However you cant dispute the health benefits so i just take a teaspoon a day raw orally. This 250ml bottle gives you 42 teaspoons of oil which works out at 19p a teaspoon, seems rather on the high side and i dont think i would buy it again, but im thankful for the opportunity to try it.


That Sugar Film [DVD]
That Sugar Film [DVD]

Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 26 July 2015
This review is from: That Sugar Film [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found this film very interesting.

I am very overweight but disabled and rely quite heavily on ready meals etc but this has really changed the way i liive.

This film is basically an experiment for 60 days where a normal bloke who doesnt eat sugar goes on a high sugar diet of 40 teaspoons a day.

I was shocked at how much sugar that was but when i sat and worked out how much i was consuming i was doing quadruple that per day.

There were some interesting comparisons like a piece of fresh cooked chicken, you could add a small pouch of sauce but that has 8 teaspoons of sugar in it so he jus put the sugar on and ate the chicken which i thought was gross but i do way worse.

Over the course of his experiment he developed sugar addiction, put on over 10 kilos and added 10cm to his waist, which no matter what anyone says is really shocking.

After the experiment he went back to his normal diet of bacon and eggs and avocado for breakfast, nuts for snacking, fresh cooked chicken with the fat on, and lots of green veggies.

Think i might join him..


Rexel JOY Pen Cup - Blissful Blue

Price: £12.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Love mine, 25 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am really thrilled with this. I have recently taken up art therapy and so have a lot of pens/pencils etc for colouring and i was having to search through cases to find specific colours.

Now i can just grab the colours i want, put them in this and have them there for easy access.

It comes packaged in a sturdy outer box and then wrapped in a plastic bag, the blue and the pink are really vibrant and it is covered in a clear plastic outer case and the bottom in non slip.

Also there is a sponge circle at the bottom of this that you can of course take out but i kept mine in to stop anything banging on the bottom.

Price seems a bit high if im honest but it is really well made and will survive being dropped on the floor etc

Thanks Rexel

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 20 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only really discovered Art therapy but found it really helpful, i had bought a few books from the works but had done some research and found these the most popular books.

I bought both the animal kingdom and the tropical Kingdom and i wish i hadn't bothered.

The colour of the paper is cream, the quality is rubbish, the pictures are printed on both sides of the paper, i did a small test with both my sharpie fineliners and my staedtler fineliners, and both bleed through despite the author claiming there is no show through.

As such you can only use pencil crayons and so you are limited to colours finish etc, i like fineliners because they give a better result than pencils.

I won't be buying this authors books again unless they start printing on one side only.

I bought a book from christina rose called the tree of life and that is fantastic and printed one side only with lovely quotes on the other side.

You can see how bad the bleed through is on the 2 pics i uploaded.

If i hadn't done the test i would of sent them back for a refund but i cant now and feel I've wasted my money.

Shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful fan, very impressive, not that noisy, 20 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 4:05 Mins

This fan is a beast, it is big , it is powerful, it is very well made and i really like it.

The construction is solid, and i feel very safe with it on, not worried my dogs nose is going to get sliced off as the fan blades are a good few inches away from the casing.

Is it noisy? a little bit and you can hear it in the video, but i have a fridgedaire stand fan which is a lot noisier than this.

As i mentioned in the video, the picture on the listing is not the one you get, you get the one that is on the box, the controls are on the back, also it has a carry handle on the top for ease of moving around, for me however the handle was a little thin, would of liked it to be a lot chunkier.

I really like it, it keeps me and my dog cool in this heat and that is all that matters.

Thanks Honeywell.


AmazonBasics Griffen 3-Seater Sofa Cover
AmazonBasics Griffen 3-Seater Sofa Cover

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking cover for garden furniture, 20 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is awesome, its absolutely massive too.

Not sure of the price as its a pre launch item but would be fantastic to get to protect normal sofas if you are moving house or having to have them stored.

I tested this outside in my garden, i dont have a 3 seater sofa outside, not sure many people would, but i have a garden bench, a bistro set, a lounger, and a parasol, i lined them all up together and fitted the cover over them and it went over with masses of room to spare.

I tucked the ends underneath the bench on one end and the bistro set on the other and tied the toggles tight. There is a lot of wind around today and the cover never moved, well it rippled a bit in the wind, but there is no danger of it coming off.

I also did a rain test with my garden hose and there was no leaks at all, obviously this was a short test but i am confident it will stand up to the winter weather.

The cover itself is a cream and pale brown, the listing shows a dark brown but mine is more milky coffee coloured.

Overall a fantastic way to keep your furniture safe in winter.

Also on an end note this comes in a fantastic thick storage box that i have repurposed and covered, and i am now using it to store art supplies which has saved me a good £15. Cheers Amazon..

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive, 19 July 2015

These lights are absolutely fantastic.

They are smaller than i thought they would be which has turned out to be a blessing.

I live in the country, no streetlights, blacker than black at night and my garden is like a black hole. I screwed these onto 2 of my fence posts on the right hand side of my garden which is where my path is and i was really shocked at the difference they made.

They charged up no issues, you must remember to turn them on by inserting the pin, there is a motion sensor so will go bright when someone comes close, very handy for my dog. One thing to note, these do not turn off ever unless you turn them off with the pin, this means that they will light dimly all the time at night and then only go full bright if they detect movement.

I usually have to get a torch to go out in the garden to pop things in the bin etc but now i dont have too.

Brilliant, thank you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok but there are better out there, 19 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a Philips Visapure so i can only do a comparison to that.

This is big and heavy, i like the material of the pink side and it has a nice grip but it feels rather too big for my small hands.

It comes with just the unit and a usb cable, there is no stand, no pouch, no 3 pin plug so nowhere to keep it stored when not in use.

I like the head, i think its very cool that it comes off to give you a smaller head.

The cost, in my opinion totally ridiculous, it could drop by at least half, when comparing to the Visapure which is currently £70 at time of this review and is far superior in results, design, quality etc i can only recommend that you buy that instead.

If you prefer the Rio brand i would recommend you buy this one Rio Sonicleanse Exfoliating, Cleansing and Smoothing System this has a stand is £40 and comes with 2 brushes and a 3 pin plug.

This unit is ok, however i found better results with the visapure, it didnt dry out my skin so much, i prefer the ease of switching the brush heads on the visapure for different reasons and they are more easily identifiable.

This is just my personal opinion however so the choice is yours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic torch for the money, 18 July 2015
I was really surprised by how great this torch is.

It is very tiny, only a few inches long, easily fits snugly into one hand, perfect for keepig in your jacket pocket or handbag .

I live in the country so no street lights and it is black as black at night here, i have used this several times now to walk my dog at night and was really genuinely surprised at how bright it was.

It comes with no instructions and i had to read the other reviews to fin out what the plastic tube was for, i wont ever need it so i threw it away, i already have a headlamp and bike lights so i threw those away as well and just kept the torch.

It is easily dimmable by turning the green thread on the top of the lamp but i personally prefer mine on full blast.

Not sure what the clip is for at all, except for maybe attaching to a backpack but i wouldnt trust that at all.

Overall pretty impressive for the money, if you are looking for a cheap but powerful torch to walk your dog at night this is perfect.
