      Disadvantages

      • "None "

      Cheap but they do the trick

      I don’t usually buy branded painkillers any more as I find that shop’s own brands are just as good and are much cheaper. Last time I was in Boots I bought some of their own Boots Value Health Paracetamol. These cost me 29p and I got 16 tablets for my money.

      The packaging is plain and simple and they come in the standard cardboard box and inside the box are two strips in blister packs, each containing 8 tablets per strip. The instructions are on the reverse of the box and it is recommend that you take one or two tablets for pain. I had a headache at the time and the pain was not too intense but I still swallowed two tablets, nevertheless.

      Since that day, I have actually used up the whole box and I have mainly used them for headache but I have also taken then for a trapped nave in my shoulder. They do not take long to get to the root of the pain and they are very quick to work and I do not have to take another one for at least for hours. I usually keep a box of these in the bottom of my bag when I am at work, as that is the place I am most likely to get a headache.

      They are so much cheaper than buying branded paracetamol and really you would now know the difference, but there is such a massive difference in price that I would recommend these over the branded type any day.

      Highly recommended.

    • Dove Regenerating Hand Cream / Hand & Nail Care / 0 Readings / 0 Ratings

      Advantages

      • "Rich and very creamy"
      • "Heals and protects"

      Disadvantages

      • "There is not one I can think of "

      It really does regenerate

      I use all types of hand creams and I have even been known to make my own – honestly. It was such a faff on though that I decided it was better just to buy a tube as I made such a mess. I love Dove products, and anyone who reads my reviews regularly will know how much I love this range.

      I have used a few different hand creams from Dove but Home Bargains are currently selling the Regenerating Hand Cream for only £1.59 for a 75ml tube. It stands on its head, it is made of plastic and as soon as you apply a bit to your hands you will recognise that familiar Dove scent. I just love it.

      This hand cream is very rich, thick and luxurious. It is very absorbent, however, and it just melts into the skin as soon as it has made contact. It does not leave your hands feeling at all sticky after using it and it just seems to sink so rapidly into my skin. It almost feels like it has a slight whipped tenancy as it is so very creamy. I have even used this stuff on my shins, with excellent results, I have to say.

      I have very rough and dry hands and this hand cream has worked absolute miracle son the rougher parts of my knuckles. It is important to keep on using it regularly for the every best results and I use it at least once a day for brilliant results.

      I have recommended this to so many of my friends and now I know loads of people who use it.

      Highly recommended.

      Advantages

      • "It's just about cured my pain"

      Disadvantages

      • "None for me "

      No more pain

      I have found that as I am getting older my teeth are becoming more and more sensitive to hot and cold foods. I mentioned this to my dentist last time I was there and he gave me a list of good sensitive toothpastes he recommended. One of them was Sensodyne and I have been using this about four times per week now for about four months.

      I have to say that I have definitely notice a huge difference. Previously I was unable to eat an ice cream without it shooting a screaming pain on my front teeth. The more I used this toothpaste the less often I was find ting that this was happening – the same with hot drinks. My teeth and gums are not completely cured oft heir sensitivity but they are about 85% better than they were before.

      I paid £1.89 for my toothpaste and though it is more expensive than the brand I would normally use, this works so well for me that I have since kept on buying more tubes as I don’t want the pain of sensitive teeth to come back again. The toothpaste does not froth too much in my mouth and it is not too strong. My husband also uses this toothpaste as he also suffers from sensitive teeth. He loves it too.

      It still cleans my teeth well and leaves a nice minty fresh taste in my mouth and for this small extra price I am paying for this toothpaste, it is definitely worth it.

      Classic fragrance for women of all ages

      I bought this at an airport in Duty Free.

      I hate strong scented perfumes and this was lovely and light and a bonus was that it had no alcohol in it! Hence the lovely and light. Just the right strength for me without the harsh chemical.
      I've used this fragrance for many years and still like it, although I don't use it as often now. It's a scent you could wear to work or when you go out, as it's not too heavy but on the other hand not too light. When I first bought it, I was in my twenties but my sister's mother in law also loves it, so there's really no age limit to it.
      The bottle is also quite sexy too and I have been known to buy perfumes for the bottle alone! (I am quite ashamed).
      Beautifully wrapped and delivered promptly. Delighted with perfume and service.
      This is one of my favourite perfumes, which is never a disappointment.
      This product was ordered for my wife and it was recommended by a friend, but was found to be entirely up to everything that was said, quality excellent.
      It was a surprise for my partner on Christmas day

      Disadvantages

      My Favorite Scrub

      I've only used the product once because I got a little sample from a salesperson. But so far, so good. I agree with the other reviews that there aren't many scrubbies within the product itself. However, I bought a facial cleanser brush for $3 (also at The Body Shop) and used it with my sample and I think that's what helped remove the blackheads. I immediately saw a reduction in the size and appearance of the blackheads on my nose and chin. The facial brush may be a little harsh for some, but if you can handle using the brush along with this blackhead exfoliator scrub, it certainly does the trick.
      I use this every day or every other day, depending on what time of the month it is. It helps keep my skin clear and soft. I have dry, acne prone skin and pair the Tea Tree cleansers with the Vitamin E moisturizers for an amazing finish.

      You gotta love Crunchie!

      I love Crunchie chocolate bars! Who didn't spend their childhood chomping their way through the entirety of Cadbury's back catalogue? And Crunchie is and was always a favourite.

      So, for those of you who have gone through life somehow missing the Crunchie goodness, this is what it is: a decent length Cadbury milk chocolate bar with a crunchy (hence the name) honeycomb centre. All wrapped up in a bright and shiny gold wrapper (a little bit of gold colour in your life does no-one any harm.)

      Don't be fooled, the honeycomb is not honey-tasting. I hate honey so that wouldn't do at all. No, this is more like a crispy and solid sugar, or perhaps toffee/caramel, mixture with a honeycomb texture - crispy and crunchy. I have to admit, I was one of those kids who runs their tongues over the crunchy part, just for the sensation. I may or may not still occasionally do this - just for nostalgia's sake you understand.

      The chocolate outer coat is not overly thick - it's a taste of chocolate rather than a slathering, there to go with the centre instead of overpowering it. And of course, the chocolate is Cadbury's milk chocolate, so of a pretty good quality to begin with.

      This chocolate bar is usually priced at around mid-range. So I usually see it at around 63p a bar. Obviously, on offer this can be reduced to 40 or 50p per bar, depending on how good the offer is. I think I've also seen it as high as 75p but don't quote me on that. Considering Freddo's (the universal chocolate bar standard :P) are currently at an extortionate 20p, this is a pretty good price.

      Still one of my favourites!

      Disadvantages

      • durability

      these headphones 7.8/10

      I've seen a few people give bad reviews on other sites and a couple here state that these have no L - R distinction. They do, but hard to find. If you look at the back of the earbud, the L & R are on the cord that meets the earbud itself. They are small & in good lighting, you'll see them. Other than that, I've used these for a few days now & absolutely love them. These replaced the cheap iPhone headphones that came with it. This doesn't have a mic, but didn't use that feature too much anyways.
      Sound quality is surprisingly good for such cheap headphones. They definitely wouldn't stand up to the standards of any audiophile, but for an average joe music listener like myself, these buds are perfect.

      I love the color variety that these headphones are available in. It allows for some personalization and style. I was also more than pleased to find that they come with two extra sets of interchangeable rubber "ring things" to accommodate for different sized ears. These buds fit amazingly well and actually block out some sound. Verrrry comfortable.

      The one thing that annoyed me about these headphones was the way the you could feel/hear the wire moving through the buds. It's hard to explain, but every time the wire is hit or moved, I can hear it/ feel it through the buds. Hardly a reason not to buy though.

      Overall, these headphones simply cannot be beat for the great price

      Advantages

      • "nice quality"
      • "long lasting"

      Disadvantages

      • "Nill puncture resistance and no interest in investigating issue by supplier"
      • "Road noise increased a little as they got older. Still good though."

      Very pleased with treadwear and reliability

      We purchased a new Suzuki Grande Vitara which came with Bridgestone Dueler H/T 687's. In the first 2500Km we had 3 punctures. One of those was from a piece of road gravel less than 1cm in diameter. Booran and Suzuki have taken no interest in the possibility that these tyres are sub standard. I have driven an average of 70,000Km to 140,000Km a year in WA and Vic over the last 20 years and have had one puncture so you will understand my surprise at getting 3 punctures on brand new tyres in less than one month. The tyre 'rubber' is so soft that a small piece of stone has cut through the new tread.

      Do not buy these tyres as they may place you at risk or worse. As they are supplied to a number of new vehicles they may well be made to a price with little regard to quality.
      These tyres were refitted to my 2004 Mazda Tribute, after nearly 100,000km on the OEM set in city commuting. These have gone for 60,000km and look to equal the originals. Excellent even treadwear, fairly good noise reduction, and good grip and performance around city roads. I can highly recommended them.
      Hope replace whole set of tyres after a 115,000 kms i have done since I purchased the Rav4 2008 sep.
      This was the first vehicle i ever had to run such alongavity of tyres.ride every thinks was excelant except the noise on road.
      Hope to replace the same brand with same Dueler H/T D687
      Bob Jane Tmart offer me a fabulous qoute for the new set

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Biotherm Eau Pure Eau de Toilette

      The Biotherm Eau Pure Eau de Toilette is available for GBP 39.99.

      The Eau de Toilette contains essential oils have the invigorating properties and to bring it through the day - as a kind of energy shower. The scent is very light and airy, like a summer breeze, so to speak, but at the same time has such a positive effect on the mind that makes you feel better immediately. Lime, kiwi, rhubarb and green tea are the manufacturer, the components contained the top note and clearly can not I smell out of it, but the mixture of all four is simply divine. The Eau de Toilette is clearly a summer fragrance, it is so light that it can strike anyone as a penetrant, surrounds the winner but with a touch of freshness can feel the outsiders only positive. The slight citrus flavor is refreshing, the scent even cools a bit - all in all, the perfect scent for warm days. The heart of the Eau de Toilette consists of lotus blossom, jasmine and reseda, which give the fragrance an aquatic note, as if you were at the seaside or at least at the swimming pool. The base note includes amber, patchouli and musk, very hot components, yet feminine - and the scent is by no means unisex, but quite clearly a feminine fragrance. Overall is the Eau de Toilette a fruity, fresh, aquatic fragrance that is so light that it is just perfect for the summer. He's just a good mood and lets start a wonderful and full of energy in the day. Since the perfume is so easy, I put most of afternoon again a little, because throughout the day, it unfortunately does not. I do not expect a summer fragrance but actually. And for that you get probably the big bottle at a price quite human, because actually Biotherm is not a very cheap brand. In this respect - all in order. I wear the fragrance way, actually more or less the whole body. The spray is very fine, but anyway covers quite a large area from, so I spray then simply go out and catch at least almost the entire upper body with it.

      Advantages

      • "Easy to pour"
      • "Nice shape"

      Disadvantages

      • "Flex could be longer."
      • "Hard to take the lid off"
      • "Water had a taint"

      Taint a very good kettle.

      I bought this kettle for Mum and Dad a few weeks ago. We all liked the shape and the handle which reminded us of old kettles but with a modern twist.

      We bought it from Wilkiinsons and went home anxious to try it. This is where the problem began.
      We rinsed it out well and were happy with the ease of pouring. The water level was easy to see and it switched on off with no problem. When we tasted the tea we had just made the water had a definite unpleasant taste to it. We left it full of water with sodium bicarbonate dissolved in it for two days but we could still taste and smell a metallic taste which was very disapointing. We rang Russell Hobbs and explained the problem and they sent us a different kettle which we actually prefer! It arrived in four days and we have made excellent cuppas with it. Great customer service but a shame about the kettle. The customer services thought that it might be a reaction with the chlorine in the water. Apart from that problem and the lid being a bit difficult for my Mum to take on and off it is a satisfactory kettle which holds 1.6 lt of water. It is relatively quiet and the round shape is very pleasing. The water level is easy to read and there is a light on the front to indicate that the kettle is on. It is easy to pour which is an important plus and the shiny body although a bit difficult to keep clean does look very smart. The cord is kept nice and tidy in the basewith the flex being about a half metre long when extended. This could do with being longer in my opinion as it restricts where you can use it a little.

      Advantages

      • " moisturises and reasonable price"
      • "lovely smell"

      Disadvantages

      • "none for me"

      A great cream that moisturises at a reasonable price ideal for your handbag

      As mentioned in my previous hand cream reviews, I use a lot of hand cream. My work means I am frequently washing my hands in sometimes harsh cleaner, using alcohol gel and wearing gloves? This combined with my dog walking on cold windy days, means my hands need some tender loving care.

      Hand Food is a hand cream made by Soap and Glory.

      They are quite clever in the fact that they print on the front of the tube "the most astonishing hand cream ever?" Which kind of draws you in, but then they say on the end "you decide" quite a good marketing technique I think. They do like to make a play on wording too. For example, "mend a hand?" Is on the tube as a heading for the usage instructions, instead of the term "leaned a hand". The design of the bottle seems 70's retro to me.

      They say you can apply the hand cream to chapped dry hands but do say not to use it on irritated or damaged skin. I have never really seen a hand cream with that on before I don't think. My hands are generally ok, but if at work for a stretch of nights they do suffer and my skin becomes quite irritated. I have to say I didn't really read the bit about not using it on irritated skin until later, but I didn't find it was an issues at all, it still soothed my skin. That said I would advise that you follow the manufacturer instructions as it may just be that I have tough, hard to irritate skin!

      The cream is quite thick but is squirtable from the tube and allows an adequate amount to be delivered and having a flip top lid makes it easily accessible. The flip top lid also means that you can stand the tube up allowing the cream to naturally fall to the bottom, making it easier to squeeze.

      The smell is divine. Apparently the original pink fragrance which matches the pink tube. I can not define it to any real smell myself or mixture but I like it.

      As the cream contains Shea butter, macadamia oil, grape seed oil and almond oil within its ingredients, I expect it to soothe my dry skin and it does quite well I have to say. It is not greasy
      and I can do routine tasks such as opening bottles, turning taps within a few moments of it being absorbed. Another of the ingredients is marshmallow, peculiar one, I am not sure of the marshmallow benefits but it works I guess!
      Apart from these ingredients the whole list can be found under the product details at the company website.
      When I have applied the cream it does last on my hands and I don't feel I need to keep reapplying that often, my hands feel nourished.
      This is certainly a product I would actively seek out and buy again.

      The cream has a long life span in my opinion of 24 months after opening. This is really good, many are 6-12 months.

      The 125ml tube is around £5.00 and the 50ml tube around £2.50 you can often get 3 for 2 deals on these products in Boots.

      Soap and Glory seem to be quite a fun company and have a large fan base and many products to try.

      The product is made in the UK but does have a distribution from the USA.

      Available from www.soapandglory.com or www.boots.com and Boots stores

      Review maybe posted on other websites under the same username Siberian-queen©

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Schwarzkopf Color XXL

      The Schwarzkopf Color XXL hair colour is available for GBP 5.49.

      The hair colour is described as follows. "Want extra vibrant, extra long-lasting & intense colours full of healthy shine? Then check out our shades and boost your colour into HD! MAXIMUM COLOUR POWER: Using the latest in colour technology, the new hi-definition formula has been optimised to deliver improved colour formation inside the hair and maximum coverage of each hair strand - for longer-lasting, intense colour that’s highly fade resistant. SHINE BRIGHT: Say goodbye to dullness with the new Ultra Shine HD after treatment – for colour that stays vibrant and shines!"

      The application is very easy, and using the instructions are no problems. I have long thick hair and I need two packs of coloration. First you screw the cap of the bottle with the application developer emulsion and then you pour out the contents of the tube with the color cream into it. Then closes the bottle well and begins to shake it so that both products are completely mixed. Then you only have to unscrew the top closure top and then you can already start with the application. The coloration is distributed and massaged strand by strand on the whole hair. Complete color spread on the hair they need to work for about 30 minutes. The whole thing smells of course a bit uncomfortable, but if you take a look at the ingredients it does not surprise you. When 30 minutes is up, you can rinse out the color. I rinse the color is always first with clean water. Then I foamy my hair with shampoo and rinse it a good until the water is clear, clearly it is not. Even after repeated washing, the water is still colored slightly red, but that's normal. Finally, I give the conditioner to damp hair and let it act a few minutes. Then I rinse this lot again thoroughly and then I'm done. By the conditioner, the hair is kept and are nice and soft. It should also extend the brilliance of the hair. One tube of conditioner to get the most out of two applications. With the result I am very satisfied, it is a beautiful vibrant red with a great shine. When I applied the color was the first time the red really loud and bright, but unfortunately it is dark which I think is a pity to me with any coloring, but that's as far as I know normally. The result, of course, also depends on the initial hair color from when before dyeing has very fair hair, the color of course gaudy than with darker hair. After two to three weeks, the color begins to fade.

      Advantages

      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      • "May break"

      Primark sunglasses range just £2.00!

      Never buy sunglasses off the internet, especially from Amazon. Unless you are buying labels direct from the brands website or a reputable high street store online I would forget it. They are nearly all cheap copies and they break when they hit the deck, especially the generic brands. As I am not a big fan of brands I am not about to spend fifty quid on some Raybands that may or may not crack on impact or in my pocket. The reason why I don’t do that for something that may last a little longer is because they probably offer no more protection than a cheap pair from, say BHS, and all that extra spend is simply because they are a brand. Like I said. If you drop these plastic frame jobs from Amazon they tend to break around the hinge and lens. Never buy the pound store ones for a long term fix as they offer only 50% protection and so suitable for posing in Spring and Autumn only.

      So no more cheap internet ones and off to the high street chain stores we go. I do feel Boots overcharge on sunglasses because they are opticians and you are supposed to believe Boots own brands are somehow super protective and so worth the £25.00 price tag and Debenhams also a little pricey. M&S did a good cheap brand (£.5.00) called Blue Harbor that lasted for ages but don’t do them anymore and so nothing there for me. I wasn’t expecting to find what I wanted in Primark though but there they were. At £2 each I was a little reticent to buy something so cheap but a little research on the internet revealed the unnamed design are the very same ones supplied to more middle-class department stores for five times the money and so a bargain their to be had. I bought three pairs I different designs.

      The correct protection is not always in how dark the lens is. Apparently the dark lens let your eyes relax and open the pupil up more and so more damaging UV gets into the eye. I prefer the dark or tinted cool sports glasses and so did not realize lighter shade lens are safer. If you are out all day in the sun like I am you also need to wear glasses that wrap around the side to stop UV coming in their. Of the Primark designs available for me (their range are all £2.00) I picked out a wrap around design that offered that protection. They also sell traditional Top Gun mirror shades but you have to be really cool to carry those off and they do make you feel self conscious. I went for the Risky Business Ray-Ban design which makes everyone look good. Sunglasses and chewing gum are the only two things that can make any man feel cool!

      You must check that little label you always forget to peel off from the lens. The suns damaging effects are all measured in nanometers in UV and UVB. If you have the CE quality mark the lens will let no more than 5% of the suns rays, which is under 400, apparently. Primark sunglasses have UV protection: 100 per cent against UV rays below 400 nanometers, another plus for the value.
      They have a sturdy plastic composite design and a screw hinge. Sometimes the screw works lose on this type of design but so far, so good. They fit snug and don’t move around when running and protect the side of the eye as instructed. They keep out the suns glare more than those cheap ones in Poundland and you do feel protected for those two bucks. They also don’t have anywhere the gunge can fester between the two lenses above the nose. I hate that.

      For two quid it’s worth the risk as you are just paying for the same protection in boots but for five times as much. There are five or six designs to choose from at the same price and a similar deal for women although you may need cooler designs. I ‘test’ dropped a pair a couple of times in Primark and no problem. And if they do break I just buy another pair! The same pair on Amazon with P&P would have cost me a whole lot more time, money and effort.
