      Advantages

      • "Fresh skin after wash"
      • "Remove Acne"
      • "Good smell "

      Disadvantages

      • "expensive "
      • "The design of product "

      This product is great but I wouldn't buy another one because I found better.

      This product have a really good perfume, and remove instantly the blackhead scrub. I've used this on my acne and it works, it keep the face clean and fresh but it make your skin sensitive... I had to moisturize my skin all days because it makes my skin dry.. I don't like the colour of the bottle because it's not really attractive, a more simple design will be fine and it looks like the other product.. The price isn't correct for what it is. I had another Garnier clearing scrub and loved this one more than this product it was called "charcoal scrub" really good product !

      To soft to do the job

      All dog owners know how important it is to keep our dogs teeth clean and for several years now the market has been flooded by all sorts of chews and toys to help us do this task. I think like most other owners we work our way through most of the better known brands on the market trying to find a good one to suit both what we want from the product and also that our pet enjoys.

      These chews are funny looking, they are long pale brown sticks with groves around the outside, the grooves are meant to help remove plaque from your pets teeth as it chews the chew. I think that would possibly work but these chews are so soft that Alf gets through them in seconds barely chewing anything. The sticks are around 20cm long in length and are low in fat.

      The inside of these chews is a darker colour and I think this is the part that has the flavour in it, obviously having never tried them I am not sure! I do not really see the point of this unless you had a very fussy dog, but ours would happily eat the outside without the flavoured centre.

      These chews are made by Bakers and are available in Supermarkets, Amazon, Pet shops and many more. They come in packs of Beef and Chicken each with 7 sticks inside.

      The 7 pack of chews retails for around £1.79.

      I really see these more as treat chews than teeth cleaning ones, they are just eaten way to fast to do much to his teeth. He does appear to enjoy them, but with out dog sadly that does not mean much, to give you a better understanding of this, our will sit for his medication that must taste horrid and he happily eats them no pressure. So I really can not judge too much how good something is by his wiliness to eat it!

      As such I am not really sure how much to give this, I am around the 3.5 mark because they are not really a good chew and are fairly expensive.

      Advantages

      • "perfect for a supplementary screen"
      • stylish
      • small

      Disadvantages

      • "not clear audio from speakers"
      • "not a good quality"

      Depends on what you need it for. For the basics it is great.

      As a student I find it very useful to have an extra screen and do my work in multiple windows. If you are someone who needs extra space while working from his computer then this is a perfect monitor screen for you. I can do multitasking easily now. Its size is 19" and it has an HDMI port.
      Having ordered this monitor on a Monday evening I was pleased to see it arrive promptly on Thursday. So far I have not had any problems with the product. It is a clear monitor that performs beautifully. The downside of it is that the speakers are not as clear as i expected, however they do perform their task. Before ordering it I was slightly concerned about some reviews about dead pixels, however I took my chances and ordered it. So far no issues. I am now thinking of ordering a another monitor so I can have a dual monitor set-up, however I will wait a few more months to see if any problems occur otherwise LG seems a pretty reliable brand.

      If all you want to do is some typing and general work and you can get this at a bargain price, it's probably perfect for you. Otherwise I'd advise you to look elsewhere. If you're a graphics professional where detail is important and accurate colours are crucial, or you simply enjoy deep, clear colours and contrasts and a halfway decent viewing angle, then it is probably not for you.
      The package included:
      M1962DP-PZ LCD TV
      Remote Control
      Power Cable
      VGA Cable
      Video Cable
      Quick Installation Guide

      Overall for the price this is a great product

      Perfect for any occasion!

      I have bought this watch as a present for my brother and he is very satisfied. He never takes it off. The watch is very stylish and can be worn by both men and women.
      At first I thought it might've been too big but it just looks smart and on trend and everyone who saw it agreed.
      Back light is really good to see during the night if you don't want to put the light on.
      It has a really attractive clear dial which is easy to read. I was concerned that the patent leather strap would be hard but it isn't I would have preferred a matt leather but that is a personal choice, besides the watch is not for me. The inner surface of the strap stops it from sliding round the wrist.
      Another useful information (maybe!) is that it is water resistant up to 30 meters. Other than the colours of the hands etc being more vibrant it is as it looks online. It is attractive & very comfortable to wear.
      I am once again very pleased with the gift I made to my brother and I am sure he is too. The price is also reasonable so I really recommend it. Make a good research before you buy it because different sites have different prices and you can get a really low price if you search it up in different places.
      If you're looking for a no nonsense clear, smart fashionable watch this is it!

      Advantages

      • Tasty

      Disadvantages

      • "Very sweet indeed!"

      Syrupy Crinkles!

      Not very often do I buy biscuits. The main reason I don't is 'cos I usually end up stuffing the lot with a cup of coffee without even realising!

      However I knew my parents were coming over the afternoon I bought these and my Step Dad always asks where's the biscuits in this joint and I never have any so this time when he asked I could actually offer something up which I think surprised him. The other reason that I bought these was because according to the wrapper these came in that they usually retail at £1.25 a packet and my packet were on offer for just 30p!

      The Packaging:

      These biscuits come in a dark red and yellow plastic pack and on there we are told what they are and who they are made by and other information listed includes an at a glance nutritional chart as well as a full one, the ingredients (these are suitable for Vegetarians) and allergy advice is stated, the weight is given which is 200g and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly laid out. Nice enough packaging this is though not resealable really so if you don't munch the whole lot as we did they really do need to be stored in an air tight type container to keep them fresh.

      The Biscuits:

      In appearance the biscuits are golden colour, rough to the top with cracks all over it and the base is more smooth. They are a nice large size, smell really sweet and syrupy. They do look plain but smell nice and don't appear greasy of too dry.

      The taste of these is really sweet. When you first start eating them they do taste buttery and as you chew on the biscuit then you get a sweet syrup flavour and what happens as you chew is that some of the biscuit vanishes and your left with sugary sweet syrup in your mouth which is a little chewy.

      They dunk well, well they do survive the one dunk test anyway and although really nice for the first couple of biscuits they do get really sickly sweet very quickly indeed we all thought!

      These though are an excellent quality, full of flavour biscuit and if you like really syrupy sweet biscuits then you must get some!

      Each biscuit though provides 51 calories and 1.0g of Saturated Fat so although I think they contain a lot of butter and sugar syrup the rolled oats they contain must mean I'm not being too unhealthy!

      Good for keeping the fleas away

      My cat is now 13years old and touch wood, he has only had fleas once in this time and I would say that my choice of collar has a lot to do with this.

      ===The collar===

      The collar is available in several different colours and patterns; I tend to go for the glittery ones as I think they look the nicest against hot coat. The inner part of the collar has a nice furry soft lining so that it is comfortable for him and doesn’t irritate his skin, it also have a bell on which is designed to alert other smaller animals when he is around. It fastens with a little silver buckle and has a little hoop further along the collar to feed it through to, I find it really easy to put on my cat. The collar does have a small elasticated part to it which is designed as safety feature so should the collar get caught on anything, the cat should be able to escape.

      This is suitable from when you little kitten reaches 12weeks old (although you do need to trim the collar a little bit as they are quite big) and are designed to be effective for around 4months, I generally replace them after this long anyway as they do start to look a little tatty.

      ===Price & availability===

      The collar costs around 4pounds which is a little more expensive than other brands on the market but in my opinion, they are definitely worth it. They are available in discount stores such as Home Bargains where they are about half this price so I tend to pick mine up from there.

      ===Overall===

      Overall, I would definitely recommend these, as I mentioned earlier, apart when then my cat was a kitten, we have never experienced fleas since so they get 5 out of 5 stars from me.

      Thanks for reading.

      Advantages

      • "Good on new tattoo"
      • "Softens skin"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not as cheap as other products"
      • "Packaging could be better"
      • "Could smell better"

      Good, but could be cheaper

      I first used this several years ago when I got a tattoo and the artist recommended it. It is not the cheapest product like this, but nothkng in Lush is, and because it was the thing recommended I decided it was worth the money.
      The cream is good quality and feels nice on the skin, leavjng it obviously softer. The pot lasts for quite a while, although due to the price I am always careful not to use too much at a time.
      One thing that could be improved about this product is the smell. It is not terrible, but it is not as nice as a lot of other creams. Although the packaging is nice, I would prefer a different design because it is easy to accidently drop and spill. It can also be easier to use too much, which is annoying.
      The product itself is very good, but I don't use it all the time due to the price. Compared to some creams it is very good value, but unfortunately my main consideration when buying something like this is how much it costs, until I need it for a specific reason, like my tattoo. However, when I got my second tattoo a different product was recommended to me, so I used that instead. In terms of tbe tattoo itself there was no noticeable difference between the two creams, although the second was cheaper. Dream Cream did feel better on my skin, though, so I may well use it again if/when I get my next tattoo.

      Dog Triad Treat Game- chihuahua only!!

      The Treat Triad is a multi-part puzzle toy. Dogs must first learn to rotate the top spinner to unlock the three treat covers. Once unlocked, dogs must figure out how to lift the covers to expose the treats underneath. To load the toy, treats may be dropped directly through small holes. All puzzles are made from materials approved by the FDA for food contact.

      They seem to have a lot of ideas for this kind of games, which is funny because you would think that after all this time and products, a good idea would involuntary appear. Yet again there were problems the main one was it's moving around the floor, making it very difficult to use unless he was jamming it up against the wall. And while it did keep him occupied, it was only for a very short amount of time. It will stop the dog from eating about 2 minutes.

      After a while, as this moved around like crazy and he couldn't pin it down, he got frustrated and he pushed harder, hard enough that he cut his mouth on the plastic edges and started bleeding. It was not a bad injury or anything, he didn't mind, this happened because the wells for the treats in this game were too narrow and deep for my dog's nose/mouth to reach the treat. So I realize that my dog has a big stocky head and a big snout, it's the nature of the breed, but he got so frustrated because his genetics could not allow him to get the food that he cut himself.

      Advantages

      • "Gentle on skin"

      Disadvantages

      • "Takes a lot of effort to remove"

      Not a clean sweep

      I am a fan of the 'SIMPLE' range due to the kindness to skin it aims for.
      However, I have tried to give this the benefit of the doubt but it really does take a lot of effort to remove the mascara, whatever brand it may be. It leaves me feeling as though I am trying to remove tar from my lashes, and I'm not that sort of girl.

      You should ideally only need a small amount on a cotton wool pad to remove but I tend to find I use more than that so obviously the bottle doesn't last very long either and for the price I would expect it to last longer.
      I have tried various eye make up removers and this for me ranks the least.

      The product is gentle, not heavily scented or oily on the skin so that is a positive.

      Mullti PurposeWhistle- Not really multipurpose but excels in one as no other

      I like training my own dogs, I did it every single time, mine, my girlfriends, some friends dogs. I love it and probably this is why a do such a good job.A good all-round whistle for both the pet dog owner and professional trainer. Made from tough steel, yet a lightweight design, providing a clear whistle tone.

      This is the best whistle to have for your dog, easy to put on your coat zip so its ready to hand.Its made well so will stand the test of time.The whistle also comes with a booklet of how to teach your dog to come back. Good value for money. As they are small & convenient I purchased 2 of them, in size I have one whistle attached to my key ring - handy on walks The other whistle hangs on a long tape in the conservatory to call him in from the garden, or I hang it round my neck when we go for walks .

      I love this whistle more than others because they do don't pretend, it's a damn whistle, a simple construction, not something made by NASA to go to the Sun and come back with some fire in a jar. It's a solid build shiny thing that you can carry everywhere, does not rust or has any secondary use to make it go wrong, and it emits a really heavy sound. For me it's necessary because most of the time I walk him on the beach, with the sea, the wind and the other dogs around and I want him to hear me and come.

      This being said, you cannot use this for anything else besides to force some attention on you.

      Advantages

      • "Keeps you busy"
      • challenging

      Disadvantages

      • "Very tricky"
      • "3D not worth it"

      Some tricky puzzles, but entertaining and keeps you busy

      This is the newest of the puzzler world series on nintendo DS/3DS and have to say it is by far the most challenging. With puzzles ranging from wordsearches, Fitwords, Crosswords, and sudokus there really is a puzzle for everyone.

      There are some new puzzles from the previous versions of this game, these I think are what make this version of the game that much more challenging. I've lways had trouble with crosswords, so tend to leave them till last or at last until I've got enough tokens to buy hints which would help me massively.

      The hints vary on each puzzle, the smallest amount of tokens you can spend is five, the second is ten and the most you can spend is twenty. In all puzzles you can get the chance to check the entire puzzle so far completed for mistakes, which is kinda helpful, especially for me!

      After you complete certain percentages of the game you get awards, or trophies, bronze, silver and gold trophies are awarded. Which is a good goal if you tend to lack concentration. Personally I find wordsearches the easiest way to earn tokens, they do gradually get more difficult but you don't really need to use hints to complete them.

      The 3D in this game is not really worth it. You could get the non 3D version and not lose any of the gameplay. In the puzzle themselves there is no 3D, it's only in the titles, and at the end of each completed puzzle there is any 3D, so for the extra money, it's really not worth it at all.

      There are also mini games after each puzzle, where you get a certain amount of time to complete a challenge. It's worth noting you don't get any tokens if you do not complete these challenges. These challenges can vary from hangman to basic adding up.

      Overall I would reccomend this game if you like a challenge and are fed up of buying constant puzzle books that clutter up the house. The 3D not worth it, and some of the puzzles are particularly challenging, but will keep you busy for a good couple of hours (or until you get bored).

      Advantages

      • "Classy scent"
      • "Great design of the bottle"

      Disadvantages

      Gold dust

      I love this scent and becuase its expensive I wouldn't say that if it were not true and lead others astray.

      TOP NOTES- NEROLI/ BITTER ORANGE/ RASPBERRY.

      HEART/MIDDLE NOTES-ORANGE FLOWER ABSOLUTE/ARABIAN JASMINE ABSOLUTE

      BASE NOTE- HONEY/PATCHOULI

      I love learning about the different notes as it can help when you come across fragrances that are given to you as gifts or samples etc you can work out if its what you would like and can be helpful.
      The reason for 'absolute' can vary between who or where you get information but it's largely known to how the industry describes the different processes of extracting the scent from the flower.
      I'm not a huge fan of Paco Rabane [hey that rhymes] but this is exceptional because it is light, sensual, very good for evening wear and remains one of the few perfumes that lasts more than an hour.x

      Kyjen Dog Jigsaw Glider Game - probably better for puppies and small dogs

      Doggy really likes to work for his food... or maybe it's the "play" part that motivates him to eat plain, dry kibble with these types of games. From the producers that brought you the most over expensive toy that is supposed to keep your dog's mind busy, and then get solved in 1 minute because it's easy for a octopus brain or just gets ripped apart, brings you another toy as a dead promise improvement!

      Although this one is a bit harder in nature, because he has to do different, more complex movements, it still gets solved in 3 minutes then just bores the dog into finding another entertainment. This time, not only is this Kyjen Puzzle way too easy for him, cleaning it is a hassle! The material is questionable for a dog toy - it's the kind of plastic that's glossy and sleek; the kind you'd think slobber wouldn't stay on, but wow does it stick. The slippery slimy slobber takes forever to come off, even under hot running hardwater, dish soap and sponge( I don't have a dishwasher).

      It also seems to be the kind of plastic that if it somehow breaks or shatters, would be dangerous. There are other dog games seem to be superior in terms of materials suitable for a pet and holds way more kibble, except that for me - the kibble I get for Doggy are so large that they either barely fit or don't fit at all into any of these games. I guess if you're just filling them with a few small hidden treats, it'll be fine but the whole point I got all these games was to use them as feeders.


      So it can brake, can be dangerous if it does so, hard to clean and barely fits food!!

      Effective ibuprofen at a budget price

      Ibuprofen is an anti inflammatory, and I find an effective pain killer for general aches an pains, in particular I turn to ibuprofen when I have my back spasms.

      Tesco is on my way to work, so I do pop in occasionally if I am in need of some, and I bought two packets of these last week. Tesco have recently rebranded their products, and their own label ibuprofen now comes in an uninspiring "no frills" grey and white square box, containing 16 caplets for 35p.

      Over time, I have noticed that many own brand or budget medicines are packaged very similar, and there is little to choose between them, but when I came to take two of these caplets yesterday I immediately noticed that these are indeed slightly different from the norm. Whilst ibuprofen caplets have always been small, Tesco have shrunk these even further, they are a centimetre long at the most, but they are really slim and rounded, they were incredibly easy to take. They still have the hard coating to them, which also makes them easy to swallow.

      The active ingredient in the tablets is the usual 200mg ibuprofen per caplet, and I will usually take two of these at a time. It is possible to take ibuprofen alongside some other medicines for additional pain relief, which is something I do when I have severe pain. For instance I will take 2 paracetamol & caffeine tablets then two hours later 2 ibuprofen. This means in 2 further hours I can repeat if necessary, giving a more constant stream of pain relief.

      I have never suffered any side effects taking ibuprofen, but long term or prolonged use is not recommended.

      I found these to be very effective on a persistent headache I was suffering from this week, and I will certainly be buying again.

      Advantages

      • "variety of shapes and sizes"
      • "my cats love these"

      Disadvantages

      • "Slightly expenive compared to other treats"

      My cats adore these treats

      Felix Goodbag are my cats’ favourite treats. That’s not to say they are overly fussy when it comes to treats, and I’ve never known them to refuse any (!) but for some reason they are yet to explain, these do really seem to drive them crazy with desire for them, and this makes treat time all the more enjoyable for me as well as for them.

      I imagine the smell of these must be particularly sharp – this isn’t noticeable to me, but it can only be the smell that gets the reaction when they get close to these treats. I like to feed a few treats each one at a time, and with these Felix treats, my fingers are in genuine danger at times.

      The treats get their ‘goodybag’ name from the variety of treats inside. All of them are only quite small, but they are different shapes – sticks, lattice, squares, little buttons, and they are different colours too. Along these lines I would guess that the different shapes and sizes also have different smells and flavours, though my dedication to reviewing doesn’t extend to verifying that. The stated flavours in this mix are chicken, liver and turkey.

      I love the crunch that the girls get from these treats, they seem to relish every one, and chew it to bits whereas with some of the Dreamies/Whiskas pocket-style treats, they sometimes just swallow them whole.

      The only downside of these treats is that they come in smaller packets than other brands (65g) and therefore they work out more expensive – they still retail around the £1 mark as do Dreamies and Whiskas. I try to keep to feeding around 20 pieces per day, which is enough for them to feel like they’ve had a proper snack. Therefore they don’t last as long as a packet of other brand treats do. It’s most unlike me not to be always going for the best value for money product, but in this case I make an exception and do try to stock up on these goodybags when they are on offer, as I really do feel like my girls genuinely taste the difference.
