      Advantages

      • "Looks natural"
      • "Blends in easily"

      Disadvantages

      • "Low SPF"
      • "Poor shade selection"
      • "Sheer coverage"
      • "Clings onto dry patches"
      • "Feels greasy"

      Really average, there are much better options out there

      I bought this after realizing that none of my foundations actually machted me. I tried several bb and cc creams and foundations and after seeing this was a perfect match, I decided to get it and, as I had mever heard of it, I tried it with an open mind.
      First off, I didn't like the way it felt when I applied it, it was really slippery and it didn't glide on my skin, but instead felt like I was rubbing grease against sandpaper. It blended in really easily and it had a consistency that was nor thick nor runny but somewhere in between, however, the coverage was pretty much sheer to light (although I've tested it and it can be built up to medium if you apply two layers). The finish is pretty matte in my opinion (I personally prefer something a little more satin-like) but it looks natural enough. Even though the application process was not pleasant, I was pretty happy with the results. That was, until a friend of mine pointed out the flakes on my skin. That's why I'm telling you that I speak from experience when I say, if you have dry skin, moisturize really well, because if not, it will make you look flaky and scaly. Also, it does have an SPF of 9, I think, but such small value is useless. Because of this, it does photograph great but then again, I don't know if anyone would wear such light coverage if you know you're going to be taking pictures (if you have really good skin, well, lucky you).
      I can say little about its lasting power due to my dry skin, except that if you do have skin like mine, it will last all day. But I'm guessing if you have oily skin it won't keep you matte for long, considering how slippery it feels when you go to apply it.
      Overall, it's kind of average, pretty much a glorified tinted moisturizer without the hydration part. I think there are so many better (and probably cheaper) options at the drugstore), you might want to pass up on this one. I know that I personally wouldn't repurchase it.

      Advantages

      • "Plenty of catchy tracks"
      • "Cheeky lyrics"
      • "Some wonderful fun"

      Disadvantages

      • "Mixed quality"
      • "Maybe a little too edgy for some"
      • "Some poor tracks"

      Striptease for me baby!

      A few years ago I went through a period of listening to various "unknown artists", one of which was a Canadian named Hawksley Workman. At the time his second album, "(Last Night We Were) The Delicious Wolves" had just been released in Canada and I immediately fell in love with two of the albums tracks. From then on I dipped in and out of his music due to how hard it was to get a hold of it.

      Thankfully with the age of digital music and numerous streaming services I've been able to dip back into Mr Workman's music and been able to enjoy more than just a handful of songs that I had originally been limited to. This mean I was finally able to hear a full album rather than just songs.

      Knowing I like some songs from "(Last Night We Were) The Delicious Wolves" I began to get back into Hawksley by listening to this album and immediately fell back in love with the songs I had loved years ago.

      The first of those was "Striptease" a fun and sexually playful song lyrically but a catchy rock song musically. It's not one you'll find yourself singing along with but you will certainly find yourself enjoying if you like light radio friend rock, even if they lyrics aren't quite radio friendly (they aren't explicit however).

      The second of the songs I had loved was the slightly more explicit "Jealous of Your Cigarette". It doesn't quite break the line of "explicit content" but it rounds the line close and makes clear allusions to something not particularly wholesome. The edgy content attracted me from the off and I immediately thought the track was a clever and intelligent track, though when I first listened to the track I was an immature teenage. Despite growing up I do still think this is a fantastic track and again very playful.

      Following those two tracks I'll admit the album does drop slightly in quality though "Little Tragedies" is a solid radio friendly pop-rock track which certainly could have reached the top 40 in the UK a few years ago. The same description could also be used for "Your Beauty Must Be Rubbing Off" which is more fun and less rock.

      Sadly for every good song there is also a track that falls a little bit flat, such as "You, Me and the Weather" or "What a Woman" which I tend to find myself fast forwarding over.

      Overall the album is a pretty standard soft rock affair with a little bit of fun thrown into the first few tracks. I can't say it's the most exciting album on the market but it's certainly not elevator music. It is good back ground music however and enjoyable to dip in and out of though with a few poor tracks you may find yourself dipping out more than you'd like, especially with their being 16 tracks on the UK version of the album

      Advantages

      • "It was really cheap "

      Disadvantages

      • "It's hopeless at removing make up "

      Great if you like Panda Eyes

      I bought some Nivea Gentle Eye make up remover from Home Bargains as I had run out of my usual brand and this one was only 99p for a good sized bottle.

      The branding is much the same as the usual Nivea branding and it comes in a plastic bottle and looks blue as the packaging is ever so slightly see through. I usually use eye make up remover wipes to take off my eye shadow and mascara and eye liner but I’ve used Nivea products loads of times before and been really impressed with them so thought nothing more of it.

      I used it for the first time about two weeks ago and I applied a small amount to my cotton wool pad, as directed on the reverse of the bottle. It has a flip off lid and inside there is a small hole so you can actually disperse as much or as little of this as you want to use easily, and none goes to waste. The first thing I noticed about this was how weak and watery it seemed t be and it was easily absorbed into the cotton wool pad, so much so that I had to keep on pouring more and more out of the bottle.

      I wiped it over my eyes (as directed) and all it seemed to do was to smudge my mascara and eye shadow across my face, rather than remove any of it. There was a small amount of make up on the cotton wool pad but not a lot really and I was disappointed that it smudged rather than removed.

      It also slightly aggravated my eyes and they stung afterwards and this ahs never happened to me before with any other Nivea product, so I was quite surprised. Overall, I can’t say I have been impressed with this product and I have now gone back to my usual eye make up remover wipes.

      • Clear
      • Cheap
      • Comprehensive

      Disadvantages

      • "limited pricing options"

      A nifty site that does everything it says on the tin.

      I started using Check My file because I was worried about a debt I'd been paying off a while and wanted to make sure my score was all right for moving house.

      The site checked Callcredit, Equifax and Experian for all the data, which revealed that some of them didn't have all the information of the others, which was surprising.

      Check my file explained all the information and even busted the jargon. It was all very helpful and I recommended it to two friends who tried it out.

      Additionally, there is a 30 day free trial, which is common, but cancelling it to avoid paying anything was logical and easy. No messing around with emails, calls or waiting for several working days. I was so impressed I actually wanted to write a review, which is uncommon.
      The only thing I can think of as a downside was it didn't have an annual subscription, only monthly and quarterly options.

      Advantages

      • "good power"
      • (almost)
      • "gets into anywhere"
      • "cuts well"

      Disadvantages

      • "price a bit high"

      Chomp through those brances with what looks like a croc-agator

      It's a bit of a beast, with a beasts name, or the Reciproccator, although I've heard it called the crocodile/alligator. It is a good 530mm long, not including the blade, which adds another 150mm on that. It is about 165mm high, at the handle, including the battery, which slots into the handle itself. The entire thing weighs in at nearly 5kg, so it's not for the faint hearted.
      The trigger is housed inside the handle, on the rear end, which the guard being the entire handle and front section. As we go along the saw, there's another handle which your other hand holds and not only take the weight of the saw but uses it to control the direction of it too.
      The blade slots into the front, locking into place with the twist of your hands, and a bit of pushing and pulling. And there's a little lock switch that you need to press in order to get the trigger working, this is a safety device and works well, meaning you need two hands to start it up.

      The battery is aNi-Mh 3.3Ah 24volt one and it does seem to keep a good charge for a longer time than I expected.

      It takes about an hour to charge, giving you about 20-30 minutes of mad cutting time, depending on what you're cutting.
      It can take different size blades, which the front foot section being able to slide in and out to keep the blade balanced and stop it from being pushed back when cutting.

      This is one of those tools that you either need or don't need. It os one of them that you might use once or twice, then stick it in the back of the shed. But if you've got an open fire and a pathway to lots of branches in the woods, then this will chomp them into burnable sizes in no time at all, even on a battery. They do do a mains powered 240vlit version for half the price, which is worth thinking about.

      The cost of this massive saw is about £200, although you can get it from other shops for less.
      For me, this was great for chopping branches off the tree that were on the verge of causing damage, yet still hanging on in there. And it's great for cutting wood for the fire, but for the price I paid I think I should have left it on the shelf in the shop.
      I did end up selling it on ebay and got 75% of my money back, which was nice.

      Advantages

      • "lovely compact"
      • "good coverage"
      • "lasts well"
      • "shine-free finish"
      • natural

      Disadvantages

      • expensive

      Not quite ever matte, but a very good powder

      Clarins Ever Matte Mineral Powder Compact is is designed to effectively control shine for hours, leaving skin fresh and flawless. It's priced at £27.


      My thoughts
      The packaging is very classy looking as is to be expected of Clarins. The compact comes in a lovely little pouch and it has a mirror in the lid and a sponge to apply the foundation.

      The sponge is soft and high quality and picks up the powder well. It's easy to apply and it goes on nice and smoothly. It's easy to get just a thin layer so it doesn't look caked on. Although it's a powder it doesn't have an overly powdery look to it, it still looks natural even though it keeps shine at bay with a lovely matte finish.
      There are only 4 shades available in this powder so you may struggle to find one that suits, but I found the lightest one is an almost perfect match for my skin and it blends perfectly with my pale skintone.

      The coverage this powder gives is really good, I use it as a foundation as it gives me a buildable medium coverage and I find it covers most blemishes effectively so I don't need to use a concealer with it. You can of course use it as a powder over the top of your foundation but personally I feel this would make my face too heavy with product as this is a high coverage powder, even though it feels lightweight on the skin.
      It lasts really well and I only find myself needing to top it up on my t-zone area after around 4 or 5 hours (or slightly less in particularly hot or humid weather). It doesn't disappear into my pores or transfer onto clothes.

      The main thing I love about this powder, other than the coverage it gives me, is that it feels like it's doing good to my skin in stead of damaging it like most makeup does. It doesn't clog my pores, make me break out, or dry my skin out. Probably because it's made with high quality ingredients.

      Recommended?

      Yes, I would recommend this powder to anyone looking for a good medium coverage foundation in powder form, that won't damage their skin.

      Advantages

      • "Perfect for damaged hair"
      • "Volumising "
      • "Smells great"
      • "Sulphate free"

      Disadvantages

      • "Best results after a few uses"
      • "Doesn't lather as well"

      Great product for dull or damaged hair

      I recently purchased the ever pure shampoo and conditioner, because I read that they were sulphate free, which is exactly what I was looking for. My hair type is usually thick and healthy, but after a surgery, my hair has become thin and lifeless and I needed to find a good, non damaging shampoo, hence why no sulfates.

      I love this Shampoo because after the first use, my hair immediately had more volume and silk to it and was generally smoother and more manageable. I have also noticed that my hair gets let's greasy in between washes since using this product. Before, I would have to wash my hair every other day, but I can go at least 3 days now without having to wash. The only
      Disadvantage I would say, is that it doesn't lather as well as other shampoos, which is down to the products being sulphate free. However, this does not mean that it is not working as well as other products, as In fact, your hair is better off without those sulfates and the lather.

      Overall, they are great products and I have found an improvement in my hairs texture and thickness. Although some may not like the smell of rosemary, I loved how these products made my hair smell and you can get them relatively cheap from any drug store.

      My hair has a way to go before it is back to its original state, but the ever pure shampoo and conditioner are significantly speeding up my hairs recovery.

      Quaverdom

      Now im sure that everyone knows thats quavers are crisps and if you don't then im afraid you may need a trip to the doctors. But don't worry because he will guard you on the golden path to quaverdom. Sadly quaverdom does not actually exist, but im sure your local shop will have them anyway.

      Now i love crisps, maybe a bit too much. Ill eat six packs in a row or a big bag, but i justify it as the bag is half full of air and crisps are not exactly filling. In fact they seem to make me more hungry. Now my favorite makers of crisps is of course walkers, even though there stingy, the taste more than makes up for it and ever since i was young i have loved quavers. There the sort of crisps that most people remember from there youth and there still going strong today.

      Taste and texture : Now quavers are a cheesy crisp not as in your face as lets say wotsits, but a good mild and creamy cheesy taste. There very moreish and have the right balance of flavour, sometimes chessy crisps are way too overpowering. The taste also doesent linger in your mouth for ages which is great, especially if you want some kissing action. They come in the shape of curls and are just over an inch long, the perfect size to pop into your mouth. They also have a rough texture which i like, but if you have cuts on your tongue these will rub against it and burn your tongue like me :(.

      Smell and colour : They have a good scent of mild cheese, its not so overpowering that when you open the bag your blown away and they are a light pale yellow in colour. However sometimes when they seem to add a bit of extra flavouring to them they go a bit more yellow / orange, if they look like this, they will taste more cheesy.

      Where can i get them and cost : You can get them from your local corner shop to your big bully supermarket. They cost roughly 45p a bag or you can get a multipack, they often do mix and match on crisps and have two bags for £2 or £3 pounds depending on how many packets are inside. Some of the multipacks also contain the two other flavours of salt and vinegar and prawn cocktail, which i am yet too see in a shop.

      Ingredients :

      Potato Starch, Vegetable Oil, Cheese Flavour (Whey Powder (From Milk), Flavour Enhancers (Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium 5'-ribonucleotide, Flavouring, Milk Powder, Cheese Powder, Butter Acids, Soya Protein, Colour (Paprika Extract, Sulphite, Caramel)), Rice Flour, Soya Flour, Salt, Yeast, Onion Powder, Pepper, Wheat Flour, Colour (Annatto

      Now i do not understand all of the ingredients either but lets all play a game of lets pretend. Monosodium glutamate which is really a flavour enhancer is now fairy dust and sulphite is really daisies. There is however lots of normal sounding stuff like cheese ( i hope you know what that is ) and milk powder. Ok now we understand the ingredients we can eat without guilt.


      Overall : I really do like these and they are low calorie too, at only 87 calories per bag and if you cant stop at just one, then there a perfect snack, obviously all in all crisps are not very healthy, but they are one of the healthiest ( or we can just pretend they are ). They are also suitable for vegetarians, so often i see crisps that are not even meat flavours and vegetarians still cannot eat them, becuase there is some sort of animal product in them, which is very unfair. There perfect for children as they will like the shape and of course the taste and also adults will love them. They have a good flavour and just generally taste good. I think walkers have done really well for themself with quavers ( and if you dont agree i will be waiting for you under your bed ). There also perfect for tucking in to your childrens lunch box. So run, skip, hop or jump, to your local shop and get a pack and even if you dont like them ( which you will ) you can relive childhood memories.

      Have fun :D xx

      Advantages

      • yummmy

      Disadvantages

      • "hurt cuts"

      Delicous but not nutricious !

      Now we all love a bag of crisps, i mean they take no effort do they, just open the bag and eat. Yes yes we no there not very healthy and we no our waistlines dont need the extra calories but sometimes you still want them. Now i adore monster munch pickled onion and flamin hot but i prefer pickled onion a tiny bit more. I find that they have the taste balance perfected and i always enjoy them.

      Taste and texture : Well i am going to talk about pickled onion monster munch, so the taste is indeed very pickled oniony with a slight sweetness to it to combact the tang of the vinegary taste. The taste is very strong but not overpowering and the sweet and the more tart blend together to make a too die for taste. Now the crisps are shaped like sort of paws/hands and they have four fingers on each crisp. They claim there meant to be monsters feet but i think they look more like hands. The texture is slightly rough which makes them very crunchy to eat, there also pretty loud when your chewing them. A slight warning though if you have mouth ulcers, chapped lips or cuts in your mouth, there is a very good chance that these will burn your mouth, i had a cut in my mouth once and these causes a mini fire in my mouth, which took about 3 minutes to extinguish. There also melt in the mouth so if you leave it in for a few seconds it will melt.

      Smell and colour : They smell very rich and you really get a good hit of the strong vinegary pickled onion smell, i like the fact that they do indeed smell authentic to the flavour that they are. They are a bright golden yellow colour which dosent look too unnatural as the colour is quite neutral. There not as unrealistic looking as lets say wotsits.

      Where can i get them from and cost : Well everywhere as they are so popular. You can buy single bags from your local newsagents which will cost in the region of 40 - 50p, my local shop charges 41p or from a supermarket or even a pound shop. My local pound shop sells a 10 bag which contains four packs of pickled onion, 3 packs of beef and 3 packs of flaming hot. So as you can see pickled onion is the favorite flavour and also multipacks work out a whole lot cheaper. Each bag also has a different monster on the front which is always fun for children, well unless there scared of them.

      Ingredients :
      Maize, Vegetable Oil, Pickled Onion Flavour [acidity Regulators (Sodium Diacetate, Citric Acid), Wheat Rusk, Lactose (From Milk), Onion Powder, Flavour Enhancers (Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium 5'-ribonucleotide), Hydrolysed Soya Protein (Contains Wheat Derivatives), Flavourings, Sweetener (Aspartame)], Salt, Wheat Flour.

      Eh not too bad i guess, crisps arent ever going to be healthy now are they! You can also kid yourself and say oohhh maize thats very healthy. They also have 108 calories a packet which too me is pretty low.


      Overall : I love these crisps and think your a real winner, there perfect for adults and children and make a good fairly filling snack. They are also baked not fried which does make them slightly healthier than what they could be. Theres a choice of three flavours so im sure you will find one that will tickle your tastebuds. But pickled onion will always win with me, unless i have cuts in my mouth again!

      Enjoy xx

      Advantages

      • "Must see musical"
      • "Alexandra was perfect for the role"
      • "Fantastic songs "
      • "Great feel good show"

      Disadvantages

      • "Wish it stayed in West End or with Alexandra longer"

      Sad to see it end

      I went to see The Bodyguard on its final Saturday evening in the West End and I absolutely loved it. As instructed to do so by mum (you will know why if you have read previous reviews!), I watched the film and although I expected it to be brilliant I wasn't keen on the film at all and hence made me lower my expectations for the show which before seeing the film were very high. I am pleased to say the show totally exceeded my expectations and I really wish I had seen it sooner so I could have gone again.

      The story is about a superstar Rachel Marron who is being stalked and much to her annoyance has a bodyguard brought in to protect her, Frank Farmer.

      I was really excited to see Alexandra Burke playing Rachel as she has such a fantastic voice and I have always liked her since wanting her to win on the X Factor. As I expected her singing was absolutely flawless and I think the Whitney songs are perfect for her. My favourite songs from the show were One Moment in Time which has always been my favourite Whitney Houston song and the performance of I Will Always Love You was amazing. All of the songs were fantastic though with a good selection of up beat songs and some slower ones.

      The way they adapted the film to stage was brilliant and the acting was fantastic by all the cast. I think Alexandra played Rachel brilliantly and made her a bit more of a diva but I liked that. The only issue I had was that I just couldn't imagine Alexandra playing a character as I have always seen her as herself on television and with all the Whitney songs that suited her so well I just couldn't see her as Rachel.

      The beginning of the show was a bit of a shock with the sudden gun shot and lighting out without a warning but it was different to any other show I have seen and fit into the show well.

      The dancing and costumes were brilliant and with the up beat songs it felt more like a party than watching a show which was fantastic. I loved the end song I Wanna Dance With Somebody and how everyone was standing, clapping and singing along with the cast and I think it left everyone leaving with a great feeling. I didn't want it to end!

      I think this show is outstanding and I cannot believe that tonight is its last evening on the West End. I would have loved to have seen it again but no one could do it any better than Alexandra Burke. I am so glad I got to see it with her in it and I just wish I could rewind time back to Saturday so I could experience it all over again.

      the best lip balm i have used

      Carmex lip balms are surprisingly not as popular as most other lip balms on the market today, and i cant quite understand why! The Carmex range was first created by Alfred Woelbing in 1937, where he made the lip balms by hand and put them in yellow topped jars that he had in his kitchen, which is why the color of the product is yellow. By 1950, Alfred Woelbing had visited dozens of pharmacies and stores to gain interest in his products, giving then jars for free, so they could sell them in the hope of reordering. The business became very successful, and the company now has a full range of products including skin care.

      Carmex lip balms come in a small pot, which is fixed to a yellow cardboard package, which makes the product look good. The package is brightly colored, so it is attractive to most. The pot is 7.5g, which is more than enough to do the trick, i tend to make a single pot last me well over a month in the winter period, and much longer in the summer months.

      It is not common for a male to use lip balm, granted, but unlike most others i like to take care of myself! There is no worse feeling than having dry lips, it can make you feel uncomfortable and often leads to your lips becoming very sore, which i hate! I bought the Carmex cherry lip balm simply for this reason, my lips started to crack, plus this one was on offer in superdrug so i went for this. At only £2, I thought it was pretty cheap compared to some of the other lip balms available.

      The lip balm has a great smell and taste to it, which is a major plus to the product, it has a brilliant moisturizing effect, which is what you want out of any lip balm, but this tends to really soften the lips, and absorbs quickly without leaving that sticky feeling once it is applied. The taste of cherry gives you a little pick me up, especially when it is cold out, or it does for me anyway! A lot of the cheap lip balms you buy tend to leave your lips feeling sticky, and does not absorb properly, which in turn needs to be wiped off because it becomes visible.

      Anyone who suffers from dry lips or cold sores should try this product out. It is from a classic company that has been around for tens of years, and really are experts in their field. The best thing about this product is the moisturizing effect, it works within minutes to make you feel comfortable again!

      Advantages

      • "Softens hair"

      Disadvantages

      • "Awful packaging"
      • "Doesn't actually moisturize hair"

      Great option if you want soft hair for cheap

      There's not much that can make my dry coarse damaged hair soft, but I must say, this hair mask does! I'd say the only thing that compares to this mask is L'oreal Total Repair 5 mask and maybe the Macadamia one that's so hyped (although I wouldn't know, I haven't tried it, and honestly, I don't feel the need to if I can get the same results with something from the drugstore at a fraction of the price). Although I must warn you, the packaging sucks. Waters gets into it really easily and, if you don't use for some time, it hardens and becomes all crusty gross, sometimes I had to use a knife just to get the product out. I've also heard that it doesn't really conditiom your hair but just coats in silicones. But really, what can you ask of such an affordable product. All I can say is, if you have hair that's anything like mine, give it a try, you won't regret it.

      Advantages

      • "Finely milled"
      • "Not cakey"
      • "Great packaging"
      • "Doesn't dry out skin"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not grest for oily skin"

      Great finely-milled drugstore powder for dry to combo

      In my opinion, this is definitely one of the best powders af the drugstore. It's not cakey at all but then again, it doesn't have much coverage either. I have dry skin so it works well for me because it's not too drying for my undereye area, but, if you have oily skin, I don't know if it will do much for you in terms of keeping you matte. However, because of this non-drying formula, it feels very pleasant on your skin, meaning that when you touch your face it doesn't feel powdery and gross, but instead feels silky smooth and kind of like satin. Something that I should mention is that I bought the light shade and it was too fair and pink for me, (and trust me, I'm pretty pale), that's why I think it would be great for people with really light skin. Also, packaging is great, it's really handy to have your sponge and mirror inside your powder compact, just in case you need to do some on-the-go touchups. All in all, if you're dry to combo skin and you're looking for something to set your foundation or just something with a really sheer coverage, this a really nice finely-milled powder. However, I've heard that it's been discontinued, buf I'm sure you can get it online; although Rimmel Stay Matte is very similar (jusr a little less finely-milled) and much cheaper so if you can't find this one, I d suggest you get the Rimmel one instead.
