      Advantages

      • "Quick and easy"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not as close as wet shave"

      This shaver does what it claims to do.

      I purchased this shaver, after i had a mild stroke. This affected my right hand and left it with a weakness. Not the best thing when you have a razor in your hand. So after years of wet shaving i decided to try this shaver. A question of needs, must have.

      I was a bit apprehensive about this shaver at first. I had been shaving with a blade for many years. So i gingerly started up this Panasonic ES RT31 and started to shave. I had a pre shave balm on my face. I was most impressed with my first attempted. I learnt to follow the contour of my chin and throat. Although i had the balm on, i found that the shaver pulled a bit at my skin.

      This being my first time of using the shaver. I had a good look in the mirror, and thought not too bad. I was to find out that if i shaved in the morning and was going out somewhere special. Then i had to shave again, whereas with a blade this was not so.

      I knew i had to persevere and i have. Learning as i go on and getting better all the time. Particularly when it came to around where a mustache would be. That took a bit of navigating and i had a few tries before i got that right.

      In my younger days a was a painter and you have to get the angle of the brush right, if you wanted to get the finish that you wanted. The same principle was being used here. Having mastered that i then tried the wet shave.

      I was very nervous on that one. Wet near electric?. Not in my book, but once again i had to try it. The result? very pleasantly surprised and i felt safe. All in all i would recommend this shaver to anyone. And i enjoy using it, it charges up in about four hours and last me a good five days shaving.

      • "Won't return calls"
      • "They take your money and don't do as promised"

      Please don't fall into the same trap as me.

      AVOID! They take your money, don't put up an ad for you, then won't return your calls asking where your ad is. Obviously do not get any clients. COMPLETE AND TOTAL waste of money. Scamming thieves!

      I say yes to these cucumber wipes

      The Wipes

      These wipes promise to cleanse skin remove makeup and to nourish skin, all with one wipe. Each wipe contains organic cucumber to soothe and soften the skin, aloe vera to refresh and sooth and green tea which is is a natural antioxidant and astringent, and is effective in treating troubled skin and breakouts. According to their website, this product is 98.7% natural, which is an unusual number, but it does show that there aren’t many hidden nasties in this products.

      I do think that these wipes do seem smaller than some other wipes that I have used in the past. The wipes have a faint cucumber scent, which does seem to linger on my skin slightly after use as well. Compared to some wipes I have used in the past, these feel really moist, and even after I have used the wipe, they still feel cool to the touch.

      These wipes are Dermatologically & Opthalmologically Tested, so they shouldn’t cause any issues with skin or eye irritation. I do have the issue that some wipes can irritate my eyes but I have had no issues with these wipes. Thankfully, I don’t suffer from sensitive skin, but as these are natural, they shouldn’t cause issues for most people either.

      My thoughts

      I do find that these wipes leave my skin tingling slightly when I use them, and the tingling effect does last for a couple of minutes after application. I know that tingling can be a sign of discomfort or allergy, but I haven’t found any issues after using these wipes. These wipes leave my skin feeling really clean and fresh, and I do like the feeling that these wipes give me. As I may have mentioned in some other reviews, I do have issues with some products which irritate my eyes, but these wipes have caused no irritation or other issues with my skin or eyes.
      Occasionally after a night out, I can't be bothered faffing around removing all my makeup so I use facial wipes. After a recent night out I decided to try one of these to see how they performed removing makeup. I found that they were very effective, one wipe and my makeup was removed. Some eyeliner remained but I find this happens with most, if not all, wipes and I wouldn't mark them down for that.

      The company do mention that these wipes are biodegradable, but I wouldn’t assume this, and dispose of these in my normal bin just in case. These wipes should be used within 3 months of opening as well.

      Price and Availability

      I have yet to see these in any shops but some websites that sell these include ASOS.com and lovelyorganic.com for around £4 - £5 for a pack of 30. I did like these wipes but I feel that the RRP is a little steep for these and I wouldn’t purchase them again at full price.

    • Divergent - Veronica Roth / Junior Book / 1 Reading / 0 Ratings

      02.09.2014 17:22

      Advantages

      • Thrilling.

      Disadvantages

      • "None for me."

      A thrilling story set in a Dystopian world

      'He told me to be brave, and though I have stood still while knives spun toward my face, and jumped off a roof, I never thought I would need bravery in the small moments of my life. I do.'

      ---Plot---

      In Beatrice Prior's Dystopian World society is divided into five factions, with each faction favouring a particular virtue. Every year, all sixteen-year-olds must choose the faction that they will devote their entire live to. Beatrice must choose between staying with her family, or staying true to herself; she can't have both.

      After making her choice, Beatrice must face the physically and mentally demanding initiation, with fierce competition. As the initiation process changes them all, Tris will learn who her true friends are, and discover where a romance with a mysterious boy fits into this new life.

      But Tris also carries a secret, which in the wrong hands could mean death. As she uncovers conflict within her seemingly perfect society, she discovers that her secret could save the lives of those she loves, or it could destroy her.

      ---My Thoughts---

      I'd seen a lot of hype about this book before I had the chance to read it. I avoided seeing the film adaptation when it came out at the cinema, purely because I wanted to read the book first. Now that I've read it, I'm ready to see the film. It would seem that this book is very popular at my library, as it was always on loan to somebody, but one day I got lucky and found it.

      I loved the premise of this book, and found it fascinating to learn about the different factions. Beatrice's family are from the Abnegation faction, which values selflessness above all else. Abnegation members go to extremes to remain selfless, they don't even allow themselves mirrors, for fear that it would cause vanity. They dress very plainly to avoid drawing attention to themselves, eat plain food to avoid extravagance, and devote their time to helping others.

      The other factions are Amity, who value peace and believe that conflict solves nothing, Candor, who value honesty above all else, Dauntless, who value bravery and have no tolerance for cowardice, and the Erudite, who value intelligence. In an ideal world, people would possess all of these qualities, but in Beatrice's world, people must choose the quality that they value above all else, and devote their life to it. Citizens that fail to comply to a particular faction are cast out by society and left homeless.

      I loved watching Beatrice grow as I got further into the story. She starts out as a timid young girl, following her parent's strict Abnegation rules, and being scolded for speaking out of turn. As she battles her way through initiation, she becomes a new person, a stronger person, as she learns more about herself and fights to protect her deadly secret.

      She begins to question who her true friends are, whether she can trust anybody, and whether she really can put her faction before her family, as is expected of her. I really enjoyed reading this book, and felt like I was joining Tris on her journey, as she tries to understand her faction, her feelings for the mysterious man known as Four, and most of all, herself.

      ---The Author---

      Brilliant service. Easy to use.

      I have used ipod/ipad repairs 3 times in the last few years for different equipment. The service is tremendous and very quick. If you ring up you get helpful advice on the spot. Responses to emails are also quick. The last repair was to my son's ipad and though my original diagnosis did not seem to be correct, it was still repaired within a couple of days. Cannot fault them at all. Highly recommended.

    • Nuby Grip N Sip Cup / Nursing / 0 Readings / 0 Ratings
      More +
      02.09.2014 17:13

      Advantages

      • "Good spout"
      • "Non drip"
      • "Holds alot of drink"
      • "Often on offer"
      • "Good Size"

      Disadvantages

      • "Spout turns round as you turn the top"
      • "Full price too high"

      A good progression from bottle to sippy cup

      Nuby Grip & Sip is a double handed sno leak sippy cup aimed at toddlers from 6months to 3 years. You can pick them up from most supermarkets and the price seems to range from £5.00 to about £7.00 but they are regularly on offer. They come in a range of colours, including, green, pink, purple, blue and red. The cups are a nice size standing at 117 cm high by about 8cm wide, this means they hold a nice amount of liquid enough for a good drink for a toddler.

      The cup base is strong plastic, which doesn’t break, its strong enough that it doesn’t flex, and is throw and drop proof. The lid screws on the top which the plastic coloured handles drop down from. Inserted into the lid is the soft spout. This is a flexible spout so ideal for babies first moving away from bottles who are used to a soft teat. The teat is non drip/leak as well so great for clumsy kids, and the cup also comes with a lid that fits over the spout therefore preventing any chance of leaks when in a bag or the car. The design makes it easy to clean, and it is also dishwasher proof.

      The only problem I have found with the Nuby sip and grip is that the teat which sits inside the top turns around whilst you screw on the lid. This forces the air out as you tighten the top and pulls the teat down making it difficult for your toddler to suck out the drink. You therefore have to realign the plastic teat as you tighten the top. Not a big problem but its the only one I have found with it.

      My son has only just stopped using this design at 18 months as it was such a good item for us, but he has now progressed to a proper cup in the house and the next stage sippy cup cup when out and about.

      Advantages

      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      • "Leaves skin dry and sad"
      • Thin

      You get what you pay for!

      For some time now my husband and I have been attempting at reducing our weekly shopping bill and generally this is going well. We were spending £70 per week but now on a good week it is £50. We have generally done this but buying value versions rather than premium brands and also just being a bit more careful.

      As I buy most of my beauty products during our weekly shop this obviously contributes. Last week whilst in Tescos I went to but my normal daily moisturiser which was £4 per bottle. I had a quick look along the shelves and noticed that Tesco Moisturiser was just £0.70! Amazing price! I thought at that price I might as well give it a go!

      The bottle is quite plain, it has a flip top and the moisturiser is easy to get out. The moisturiser is cream / white and it does not have any scent. Immediately from pouring the product out I could see that it would be quite thin and it is. It is very easy to apply and run into your skin but because it is so thin you really don’t need much and with the excess have been applying a second coat on my face.

      Because this product is so thin it is not very moisturising at all and my skin is left feeling very dry. This may only be 70p but next time I will be investing in a higher quality product as this does not work for me.

      Advantages

      • colour
      • smell

      Disadvantages

      • "not has"

      fits almost for anything you prepare

      This raw sugar I bought several times and I can say that it has a good smell. The price is not very big and this raw sugar fits for any meal you cook. It's great for baking but for drink Wiener Zucker raw sugar is not very good because you must use sugar powder or grind this raw sugar before adding to liquid. I like to melt sugar and then add it to my desserts like a top sweet cover. What I also like that it is natural and organic. If you live organic life this sugar is for you. What else can I recommend for you? Trust this company because it really sells organic products. If you have allergies or other illness, there is not reason for you to expect some reactions from using this raw sugar. I advise you to try it, especially in the preparation of tasty organic cookies. I also use this raw sugar for preparing various scrubs and he copes with it excellent. Sugar gently exfoliates dead skin cells without damaging them. I not recommend this raw sugar for using to peeling sensitive skin. One thing I don't like in this sugar is that it contains residual traces of syrup but you can sift sugar from that. I want also recommend you to use this sugar for preparing biscuits, some cheesecakes or tasty and sweety casseroles. I definitely recommend you to buy this raw sugar. Price is not very high and you can buy it.

      Advantages

      • size
      • "easy use"
      • durable
      • "picture and video capable"
      • "great quality"

      Disadvantages

      • "battery life"
      • "need a lot of memory"
      • pricey

      Wonderful quality, but extra battery packs and memory cards are a must!

      This camera is wonderful at what it does! Unlike many other cameras, this one is excellent at both video recording and capturing images. The pictures are very high quality and the lenses make the images even better! This camera is the perfect size, it doesn't take up too much space, but it is also not small enough that it gets lost or breaks easily. I have dropped this camera a couple of times and so far, nothing has happened. It doesn't even have a dent or scratch or anything! Usually when switching to a new camera it is very difficult to get a hang of the first one, but the Canon T3i is easy to use and figure out!

      The only complaints I have about this camera is that it is a bit pricey. I do feel that there are other cheaper cameras that are comparable, but I do not feel upset that I spent the money on this one. If you are a beginner I would definitely stick with a cheaper camera and then work your way up simply because of the price tag. The other problem is that the battery life is somewhat nonexistent. The battery it provides only stays charged for about 30 minutes of filming. I would recommend purchasing an extra battery pack just in case the battery runs out during a shoot or video session. I would also suggest purchasing several memory cards. The pictures are so high quality, they take up a lot of space. Having extra memory cards is well worth it to ensure you will not run out of space on the camera and have to go back and delete other captured visuals.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Helps fade blemishes

      My skin can be quite bad and I have been looking for a product that can actually clear the blemishes on my skin up, rather than just a product that cleans your skin.

      I chose this as I know that tea tree is excellent for your skin and the bottle indicated that it would be suitable for blemished skin, so I knew that this product was for me.

      I use this product every morning and it is a perfect wake me up for my skin. The consistency of the face wash is a runny gel type liquid and it is really simple and easy to apply. I just apply it to my face, with a little bit of water to create a lather, and in gentle circular motions rub it in to my face. It is really gentle on your skin, which is great for me as I have sensitive skin. And when you wash it off you get a nice tingly feeling which really wakes up your skin, making it look super fresh which is perfect to help you look awake in the mornings.

      This product cost me £5.00, which for a face wash may seem a lot but for the quality you are getting it is actually really great. The bottle is a good size and it is not like you will get through it straight away, so you really are getting your moneys worth on durability.

      I love this product and would seriously recommend it as it helps fade blemishes.

      Advantages

      • "Works really well"
      • "Easy to apply"

      Disadvantages

      A brilliant product! Will be recommending it to friends

      A few months ago I had some salon fake tanning done for my wedding. I was really pleased with the results. I now have another wedding to attend – this time as a guest! After being so impressed with my previous fake tan I started looking into whether I could do this myself at home rather than visiting a salon and getting virtually naked in front of someone else!

      I did quite a bit of research before buying any fake tan. I asked friends and looked at what is available online. I decided on Fakebake because it is a well-known brand and to me it came across as a quality trusted item despite it now being the cheapest.

      I bought this Fakebake from Amazon at just less than £10 which I think is a bargain compared to other places I have seen it for sale. The instructions are clear and it is easy to use.

      You put on the blue plastic gloves that are provided and then put the mitten over one of your hands. You spray the fake tan on the smooth brown side of the mitten. I used about 3 squirts at a time on the mitten and this seemed to work well. The fake tan applied really well. It is smooth and easy to apply.

      It is recommended that you put this fake tan on in the evening and wash off in the evening. Not a lot washes off the next day so you get a good idea of what your tan will look like straight away.

      It smells lovely. At first I thought it was a tropical smell but then the biscuit smell seems to come out.

      I love this product! It gives a really natural streak free tan and it’s really simple to use!

      Advantages

      • "Looks nice"

      Disadvantages

      • None

      Rommel foundation

      I cannot speak highly enough of this foundation and the results I can achieve my using it. Its one of the best I have tried at that price point and the nice thing is that you can use it with other brands of make ip afterwards in terms of powder, blusher etc and they all work really well gether to give me a flawless look.t

      Rimmel say that, " this is the first transfer-resistant foundation that lasts up to 25 hours, Rimmel Lasting Finish. It gives a smooth lightweight coverage and the Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation leaves skin feeling hydrated all day.The transfer proof and fade proof formula means your foundation now lasts up to 25 hours, for a day that never stops." I'm not yoing engh any more to be able to stay up and party for 25 hours so I haven't exactly tested the 25 hoir claim but I have to say that when I wear it for the whole day, 8 hoirs plis, it definitely stands the test if time and still looks in place and not rubbed off or tired in any way.

      The foundation comes in a bottle and is easy to apply. I don't actually use very much at all so have never had a problem with it coming off or transfering onto my clothes anyway but its nice to know that this is part if the formula. I chose the natural beige colour as this is probably closest to my skin tone but there are 6 other shades to choose from in various shades of beige.

      The foundation goes on really smoothly and covers quite a fww of my imperfections inclduing some red lines on the base of my nose and really gives my skin a nice even look. The foundation seems to sort of soak in and gives the illusion of there being nothing there which is nice. It is not chalky or thixk, its fairly light and lets my skin breathe too which is very important. Thankfully it does not clog my pores either so when I take it off at the end of the day I am still left with really nice, clean skin.

      A bottle costs just £7.99 which I think is a great price for a hard working, good quality foundation and one I definitely recommend.
