4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting concept but requires skill and a very steady hand., 8 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been experimenting with this 3D pen for four days now. At first I thought you would be able to create 3D models by literally lifting the pen from a flat surface and drawing in the air with it but I quickly found that to be extremely difficult. Instead I have been drawing 2D shapes on paper and welding them together to form 3D structures. I started by forming squares and joining them together to form cubes. I then moved onto triangles and pyramids and eventually managed to create rudimentary bike shapes and cars.
Another technique I have tried, is to build 3D structures in layers - a bit like the way early potters did before potter's wheels were invented. Using this method I've been able to make rough plastic dishes and bowls.
I found the basic setting up of the pen to be straightforward. It is easy to hold but is bit more difficult to manipulate to form shapes and figures. The nozzle gets hot but with a bit of care it should be safe for over 12s to use.
A definite downside is that it creates smoke and fumes and it set off the smoke alarm in my kitchen.
I suspect that artists and sculptors would be able (with practice) to form pleasing looking 'objets d'art' with this gadget but for the rest of us it will probably be little more than an amusing toy destined for a place in a drawer or cupboard after the initial novelty has worn off.

FRENCH CONNECTION Men's SFC109B Quartz Watch with Grey Dial Analogue Display and PU Strap
FRENCH CONNECTION Men's SFC109B Quartz Watch with Grey Dial Analogue Display and PU Strap
Price: £17.14

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely understated daytime watch for either sex., 5 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice, simple, bling-free, understated watch. The strap is black and the grey, uncluttered face tones nicely with it. It's marketed as a man's watch but it would look equally good on a woman as a work watch. Not much else to say really except to add that it is very competitively priced. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very effective overnight facial care product., 5 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife liked this skincare product and she is fussy about what she puts on her face - nothing unnatural etc etc.
She loved the fragrance and smooth consistency. She said it was easily absorbed with no sense of greasiness or oiliness. She said after using for one night that her skin felt and looked better in the morning. It was fresh and younger looking, more supple, less after-sleep puffiness, moisturised and more even in tone. She believed that fine lines around her eyes were less visible too. From my perspective - I thought her skin looked more radiant and had a nice healthy glow (reminded me a bit of how her skin looked when she was pregnant if I'm honest).
In summary she said it was not cheap but was probably as effective as many far more expensive facial skin care products she could mention.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great no nonsense swiss timepiece., 4 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this watch. It is so refreshing, in these days of tacky bling, to come across a quality, no nonsense, understated timepiece.
As you might expect from a military design watch, this is extremely robust and shouĺd last for decades and will stand up to rough treatment. While it would make an ideal everyday work watch, in my view its dark understated elegance means that it will also look good when you are dressed up to go out of an evening.
It has no frills - just time and date - that's what I want from a watch. It is battery powered and waterproof down to 100m. At £275, you are paying for swiss-made quality here, not a load of fiddly add-ons and gimmicks that you will never use.
The main body is made of beautiful, hardened, satin-finished steel. The dial is black in colour with muted-green numerals that are luminous in the dark. It is clear and easy to read no matter the light quality. The face has an anti-glare coating which has been useful in the recent extremely bright and low autumn sunshine. The charcoal coloured strap is made of a leather lined, strong fabric webbing and it is rather stiff but it will become more supple as time passes, so I don't consider that to be a problem.
Simply a well made watch which should last a lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice comfortable watch for the summer., 3 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was a bit dubious about the silicone strap on this watch as I thought it might feel a bit sweaty and uncomfortable but I was surprised to find that it is light and very comfortable indeed.
The watch face has a clear and easy to see display and the date function likewise. The diameter of the face is average in size and thereby should suit all sizes of adult wrist.
As for the colour? Well it is a 'trifle sudden' but then I would categorise this as a summer / holiday watch and it I think it will look good on anyone's wrist whether abroad or at home and you can bet it will be noticed by others .


Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Wash Bag Gift Set
Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Wash Bag Gift Set
Offered by Activecare Online
Price: £13.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hair product gift set at a bargain price, 3 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely gift set of Dove hair care products. It is also something of a bargain at the current price of £12 as the products alone cost over £15 if bought separately. In this offer they come in a plush leather-look, pretty, wipe-clean wash bag which is quite robust and should long outlast the products therein.
My wife is a fan of Dove products because of their gentleness. She has a big mane of unruly hair which needs to be kept under control. These products have ensured that her hair feels well conditioned, is easy to manage, and looks sleek, shiny and lustrous. She recommends unreservedly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well priced christmas stocking filler or gift for any occasion., 2 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At the current Amazon reduced price of £12 this gift box is something of a bargain as the 3 skincare products would set you back just over £13 on their own. Add to that the little manicure set and the attractive and robust gift box then you can't really go wrong buying this as a stocking filler for someone this Christmas.
As is usual for Dove products( according to my wife) the hand cream (75ml), the body lotion ( 200ml) and the jar of body cream (300ml) are gentle and leave your hands and skin feeling soft, supple and nicely moisturised with no sense of greasiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very effective overnight skin rejuvenator, 31 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife was most impressed with this skincare product. She liked the smooth consistency and subtle fragrance. She liked the ease of absorbtion and the fact that a little goes a long way. She absolutely loved the effect it had on her skin overnight. She woke with none of the usual post-sleep puffiness around her cheeks and under her eye and her skin looked smooth, plumped up, even in tone and rejuvenated. She said it's a steal at the current Amazon price.


David Beckham, Instinct, Shower Gel, 200 ml
David Beckham, Instinct, Shower Gel, 200 ml
Offered by MyPharma4u
Price: £2.18

4.0 out of 5 stars A nicely fragranced shampoo and shower gel., 30 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a subtly and pleasantly fragranced body wash/shampoo gel which has an invigorating effect. The Beckham brand will be an obvious attraction, especially for youths and younger men. It is an ideal partner to the Beckham aftershave and means that the user won't have to put up with a clash of fragrances after completing their personal grooming routine. It is about 4 times the price of some other well known shower gels on the market but then they don't carry the kudos of the Beckham name. You pay your money and take your choice.


Philips Avent Smart Ear Thermometer
Philips Avent Smart Ear Thermometer
Price: £44.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy to use device which produces reliable results., 29 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an infrared digital thermometer which measures body temperature via the ear canal. It comes ready to use with batteries in-situ. I found it sat nice and snugly in my hand and it is very straightforward to operate. You simply insert the probe gently into the ear canal pointing towards the eardrum and press the power button with your thumb. Your body temperature is displayed on the digital display in a couple of seconds. If you are pyrexial the ring around the power button lights up red to let you know that your temperature is above the body normal of 36.7°. Couldn't be simpler really.
Other features are:
*The ability to record your temperature history.
*When switched on the last recorded reading shows on the display.
*Automatic switch off after 30secs of no activity to preserve battery life.
*Ability to switch between Fahrenheit nd Centigrade scales.
*Bluetooth connectivity to mobile devices.

A good family health investment.
