      Advantages

      • "Unusual and refreshing"

      Disadvantages

      • "None for me"

      Love this perfume!

      My favourite store, Lush, makes beautiful and unusual fragrances under the name Gorilla Perfume. Many of these are available in-store, with some exclusively online. Several are available in sample sizes, and you can also buy two miniature sets each containing eight of the sample size fragrances.

      I bought the second set, including many of the perfumes originally called ‘B sides and rarities’. These are scents from Lush past and also from B Never, Lush’s sister company which closed a few years ago. I have sampled all the perfumes in turn and I am going to review them all. The fragrance I am going to review today is Love.

      *Packaging*
      Each fragrance comes in a tiny 2ml glass vial and the bottles are laid out together in a recycled cardboard case. It is also possible to buy the fragrances in the following forms:
      - Solid GBP 7.50
      - Spritzer GBP 15
      - Atomiser GBP 31

      The concentrations are different depending on the form purchased, with the atomiser having the highest concentration. The perfumes come in the standard black packaging which is slightly dull, but fits in with the Gorilla Perfume ethos of concentrating on the perfume rather than the packaging. Some people on the Lush forum have found that perfume can leak from these black bottles, but I haven’t had any problems.

      *The Fragrance*
      Love has the following main notes: lemon, lemongrass, bergamot, apple, cinnamon, cassia, jasmine, rose and ylang ylang. I think it sounds very appealing and fresh. The scent has been used in some Lush products such as the limited edition Love Potion massage bar for Valentine’s Day and the Dragon’s Egg ballistic.

      *My Experience*
      I was familiar with the fragrance as I had previously sampled products scented with Love, so I was excited about trying it. On first application, I loved the fresh apple scent. Apple is a very unusual smell to have in a perfume, so this is a really unique fragrance.

      Over time, the scent dried down and the spicy cinnamon aspect of the fragrance became more prominent. The perfume lasted for ages on my skin – a good few hours – and I also found that it lingered on my clothes. I kept getting whiffs of apple – it reminded me of mulled cider!

      It’s the sort of smell you can enjoy all year round – the freshness is ideal for summer, while apples can also evoke autumn and cooler weather, cinnamon being reminiscent of Christmas.

      *Conclusion*
      I love ‘Love’ perfume! It’s an unusual and refreshing scent. I would be happy to pick up a full size bottle and would recommend it to anyone who likes unusual, fruity scents.

      Advantages

      • "Good sets and fluid direction . Popular and critically acclaimed film . "

      Disadvantages

      • "Unimaginative . Presents an awkward combination of ropey CGI and 1970s style reimagining "

      Sensationalist Reimagining of the Perron Family Haunting/Possession Case

      Plot:
      In 1971 the Perron family (Lili Taylor, Ron Livingston, Shanley Caswell, Hayley McFarl, Joey King, Mackenzie Foy, Kyla Deaver) move into an old farmhouse. A series of unusual events lead the family to enlist the help of psychic investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Famiga respectively). The Warrens discover a history of suicides and murders that have taken place on the surrounding land that once belonged to the owner of the Perron’s house. This owner had been accused of witchcraft who had tried to sacrifice her child to the devil and eventually killed herself in 1863, cursing all those who lived on her land...

      Review:
      Not being a person who is typically in sync with populist or intellectual taste, I guess I should not have been surprised by the response that met “The Conjuring”. Whenever someone discussed horror in social media circles this film kept reoccurring with favourable reviews of the possession/haunted house hybrid horror. The general public seem to have found it to be a genuinely scary movie, which has hit the right nerve at a time when so-called “reality” shows like “Ghosthunters” and “Most Haunted” and misleading partisan documentaries about possession have established a strong mainstream following ripe for this type of “true story” horror. The canny team behind the film’s modest $20,000 appear to have got their timing right. With minimal thought “Found Films” and “Torture Porn” along with gory B-movie send-ups saturating the horror genre for well over a decade, someone clearly thought it was time to go back to the 1970s and unearth a few more tricks. That person might well have been the film’s director, James Wan, who first found fame with the original “Saw”. The academic critical response seems to go along these lines. From what I have read their consensus of opinion is that the film executed “old school” proven concepts well, making up what it lacked in originality with sheer style. Even so, I was flabbergasted to discover that “The Conjuring” is one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time and the high praise being heaped upon in horror and general movie review magazines and websites.

      It is my guess that a lot of the things that made the film the darling it has become, grated on me. The fake true story premise is a long established method. The 1974 “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is perhaps the most notorious example of using this method with its film having even less tenuous links to the murderer and body-snatcher, Ed Gein, than “Psycho” or “Silence of the Lambs” (neither of which used this device). “Inspired by true events” is probably a less deceptive description of such films, but I guess it is all in line with the oral tradition of telling campfire urban legends. The film heavily dramatizes the events in the Perron household, which is only to be expected, but it the way the film really tries to force you to believe in the film’s heroic psychic investigators that I find annoying. Early on we have a rather clumsy scene created to demonstrate Ed Lorraine’s integrity. We are shown that he knows the supposed difference between a haunted house and natural phenomena that a client mistakes for a haunting. Needless to say, this was much better handled in 1999’s “Stigmata”, where we see a world weary caught off-guard.

      Ed and Lorraine Warren get the dubious credit of taking the archaic practice of demonology and combining it with Victorian Spiritualism and turning it into a business. By giving it a type of mainstream religious respectability via Christianity – especially Catholic exorcism - and actively publicising their various sensational-sounding cases, they laid the seeds for the blossoming ghost hunting industry we see today. Indeed, many of today’s psychic investigators were trained by this duo. Looking back through their history, we see they rarely missed a trick. The Warrens career included them tackling various different colourful spiritual entities, including a werewolf spirit and the case of “The Amityville Horror”. Of course, “The Conjuring” is the witch episode. The witch, in question, turns out to be Bathsheba Sherman, a relative of Mary Easty, one of the many unfortunate victims who were hung for witchcraft at the infamous Salem Witch Trials. The implication here is that Easty was a witch, which is an outright insult to her memory and the other innocents who perished in a time of terrible ignorance and superstitious belief. With Ed Warren now deceased, Lorraine was a consultant on this film and even got a cameo. Imagine being involved in such a deeply disturbing case, where you were taken to your mental and physical limits, and then coming back to appear in a Hollywood dramatization of said event to appear like Alfred Hitchcock/Stan Lee for your fans. The mind boggles.

      From dolls and music boxes to the type of demonic possession scenes that haven’t moved on a great deal since the original “The Exorcist”, the film seems to be a buffet of paranormal horror clichés that lacks any sort of charm. I don’t like the effort that is made to suspend disbelief, which seems to be worryingly preachy. Even “The Exorcist”, which was backed and pushed by the Catholic Church, and based on a novel written by a believer who had been inspired by the story of a young boy’s exorcism, did overtly push this onto its audience. Like any art, it is often spoiled if we feel like we are being persuaded. As if to undermine this serious approach taken throughout the film, we get special effects that are reminiscent of “Paranormal Activity” and seem at odds with the 1970s atmospheric style of movie James Wan seems to be trying to recreate.

      My review has come across largely as negative, but I think that is more of a reaction to balance the overzealous response I fee has been heaped upon a largely uncreative picture. The acting is reasonable if not outstanding in any particular way. The dialogue is unmemorable. The sets are excellent. The visual effects look set to date very fast and out of sync with the movie’s feel. This is not always the case, as can be seen in the most recent adaptation of “The Woman in Black”. There is certainly flow between the scenes and tension is built relatively well, which is no less than I would expect from this particular director. There is no denying James Wan’s ability at handling genre films, but his recent work on “Fast and Furious 7” appears to show that he is probably closer to the Michael Bay cynic than the Peter Jackson geek in this respect.

      Advantages

      • "GB swimmers back on form"

      Disadvantages

      • "Could have been a bigger arena in Glasgow"

      Commonwealth Games produce a strong swimming gala!

      When Ian Thorpe made a shock announcement over his sexuality to Michael Parkinson on his chat show I thought he was going to come out as straight. Seriously Thorpey! There are very few male swimmers that arrive to do their media duties with a handbag and trying to flog their own range of jewelry. Not only was he brave to come out but he was right in saying that if he did ‘come out’ whilst still swimming in Australia he would lose sponsors and some of his peoples respect, such is the nature of macho sport, especially Down Under. I don’t think he will do a Tom Daley though and pursue a showbiz career.

      In the BBC pundits box Ian was joined by square–jawed Claire Balding (a paid up member) and ‘in’, but not yet ‘out’, Mark Foster, who may also make an announcement on his sexuality, now that the Thorpedo has bitten the bullet. The team was joined by the athletically attractive Rebecca Aldington, sporting her new nose, but still sounding like the Isle of Wight Lighthouse. Dressed by Peacocks fluorescent summer range she is easy on the eye and very down to earth, Foster able to look good in a bin bag. The child like Helen Skelton completed the gang and presumably qualified as she looks amazing in swimwear.

      The Commonwealth Games has very few watchable sports and swimming is one of them. Ticket sales have been fabulous in Glasgow and the pool arena full everyday. Mixing in para-events enabled them to add extra nights and make more money, and the disabled kids some of the stars, no more than little 13-year-old Erraid Davies who won a bronze in the 100m SB9 class. She lit up the pool with her sweet little smile and giggle and earnt free Irn Bru for the year after her innocent plug of the only soft drink on the planet to outsell Coke.

      Scotland's Hannah Miley earned the first female home countries gold medal in the pool after obliterating her own Commonwealth Games record in the 400m and Ben Proud and Fran Halsall were the stars for England with two gold’s each. Scotland's Ross Murdoch stunned Glasgow 2014 poster-boy Michael Jamieson by claiming 200m breaststroke gold. Scotland's fine medal run in the pool continued with Daniel Wallace securing gold in the men's 400m individual medley, doing his Mel Gibson impression to celebrate. Jazz Carlin became the first Welsh woman to win Commonwealth Games gold in the pool in 40 years when she eased to victory in the 800m freestyle medley in Glasgow. Englishman Walker-Hebborn, 24, held off Australia's Mitch Larkin as he won the 100m backstroke and set a Games Record.

      The Australians dominated the medal table with 19 gold’s (matching Deli) and 54 in total, twice as many as England, getting ten gold’s, up two on Australia from India 2010. Scotland’s healthy 10 medals (3 gold) and Wales chipping in with 6 (2 of each) suggests the British team have improved a lot on 2012 and looking great for Rio. Team GB spent 27 million on the last Olympic cycle for just three medals. Jamaica took two medals in the pool, a first, perhaps the islands sprinters taking to water now on their magic dust.

      Advantages

      • "Fun dress up"

      Disadvantages

      • None

      Sleeping beauty costume







      My four year old daughter is definitely a girly girl and loves playing in dressing up clothes and outfits with her friends. Her favourite, like most of her friends are princess dresses and as Disney have the best princesses and characters she is a massive Disney Princess fan.

      This past Christmas I bought her some dress up items such as a tiara, handbag, dress up shoes and also this Disney Sleeping Beauty dress. Needless to say, this dress is an absolute winner, my daughter loves it and dresses up in it all the time and takes great pleasure in showing her friends her princess outfit.

      The dress is shiny and pink and has a picture of the princess Aurora on it. The dress is a full length dress and just goes on over the head and has a sweet princess neckline to it.

      Howeve I have a couple of issues with this dress. Firstly, it is huge, it absolutely swamps my little girl. She is quite small so I bought her the size down for her age but it is still very long on her and also the way it is cut means it falls off her shoulders all the time and she was forever holding it up when she first got it so I had to do a bit of a fix it job and sew it up at the back a bit to try and keep it on.
      Second, in reality this is actually quite a poorly made, tacky dress with not much to it at all. It is made of a very cheap flimsy polyester that is shiny(that's a bit of the design of the dress though) and if you bought this as an actual proper dress you'd be very disappointed. Yes, you need to bear in mind that its a dress up, you dress, but still, it could be made of a better quality material. Within the week of my daughter receiving this she has already ripped the hem as the dress was so long and I've sewn it up but it was very hard to do and looks a bit naff if I'm being honest.

      All that being said though, my daughter loves this dress and loves putting it on pretending to be a princess. It's not going to last forever but then she will of grown out of it by then anyway so I'm glad I bought it for her and would recommend it to other mums and dads.

      Advantages

      • "32 resistance levels plus 19 programs"
      • "Asks for sex/age/weight/height for more accurate readings"

      Disadvantages

      • "Very big - takes up a lot of space"
      • "Most uncomfortable seat"

      High tech exercise bike that is worth the money

      Bought back in November 2013 in the Black Friday sales, I think the York 210 has been one of my favourite purchases. Considering its price of £170 (with an RRP of £399.99) I think this made me more likely to use it to make sure I was getting value for money as I could easily have gotten one for around £20 and used it as a clothes hanger. This bike is very big so won’t be for everyone and it has to be near a plug. It also takes quite a lot of assembly which I managed to do myself after having to open the box and lift pieces out individually to carry up stairs because it’s incredibly heavy. The strapping on the pedals was probably the hardest part of it.

      There are four user settings where you can enter sex, age, height and weight to get a far more accurate calorie and body fat reading (although I’m sure it’s still not perfect). You then have the option of using it manually and changing the resistance levels yourself (there are 32) or using one of the other 18 pre-programmed levels e.g. increasing/decreasing resistance, alternating between high and low resistance and there’s heart rate control programme. Although it has hand pulse sensors I don’t use these much which means I often can’t find out my body fat ratio or use the recovery programs but they’re really not something you have to do every time. My preferred program is manual so I raise and lower the resistance as and when I feel like it.

      The worst thing about the bike is the seat is the least comfortable thing I’ve ever sat on. Although I use my bike regularly (4 to 7 times a week) I can still feel bruised. Even biking shorts with a padded insert do little to help so a bike seat cover is a must have with this bike. One thing I do have to disagree with is one of the product descriptions: “Utilising the large muscle groups in the lower body, an exercise bike is an effective machine for a total body workout.” No this isn’t a total body workout. There is no upper body workout with this bike.

      The bike can be moved a little more easily by tugging on the handlebars and raising the back end as there are wheels at the front. With the feet widening the bike you have to be very careful manoeuvring it through doorways (I’ve already scratched the wallpaper through to the plasterboard on one bit of wall!).

      Overall I’m really happy with my purchase. I love the calorie counter and seeing how far I’ve gone (usually 20km in 30 mins). I keep track of these on another site so e.g. in 16 days I’d cycled 300km. It’s not a full body exercise though and unless changing your diet, you won’t lose weight with this alone.

      Advantages

      • "Landmark of the New Wave"
      • "Great opening act"

      Disadvantages

      • "The plot eventually gets really dowdy"

      A New Wave into a middling story

      Francois Truffaut's third film following "The 400 Blows" (1959) and "Shoot the Piano Player" (1960), "Jules and Jim" (1962), was one of the most influential of the French New Wave upon release, based on the novel of Henri-Pierre Roche, and following the somewhat unconventional menage a trois between a woman named Catherine (Jeanne Moreau) and the two titular friends, Jules (Oskar Werner) and Jim (Henri Sarre) over the course of three decades. Filled with a regular panoply of cinematic techniques the New Wave movement was particularly known for, flexibly jumping from freeze frames to documentary clips and panning shots to a host of varied transitions, "Jules and Jim" is certainly, if anything, interesting from a purely technical standpoint. However, the bigger issue with the movie arises from its story, which tends to become much more like a conventional melodrama the further the film runs, robbing the movie of its incredible joie de vivre of its opening act taking place in pre-WW1 Paris. But it is once Catherine gets married with Jules after the war, in which the men were on opposite sides of the warring parties, and settles in as his wife, that her possessive nature drives her to begin an extramarital sexual relationship with Jim in a typical story of desiring what you don't have and not appreciating what you do have.

      Unfortunately what comes from this plot turns into an ultimately rather tepid and wishy-washy relationship drama that frankly is just not very interesting, and at its worst actually robs whatever sympathy you felt for these character earlier in the movie to the point where the film's denouement feels hollow and almost arbitrary. Certainly one can argue the experiences of the war have left their marks to the carefree nature of the three, subverting the warm feelings generated by the earlier scenes for something much darker, but whether you'll interpret it as a psychologically interesting development of great depth, or just an attempt to go against accepted societal norms of relationships and marriage, remains for you to decide. Regardless, it still won't fully alleviate the sense of mustiness from the story's central conceit that by the end of it simply comes across more like a trite tragi-drama than anything else. Still, the film is beautifully shot, fluidly constructed, and the early scenes are an absolute delight that make up for the less-than-exhilarating latter half, making the movie still very much worth seeing. Its position in film history is certainly ensured, but perhaps the patina of time has not left the movie as unscathed as its reputation may have it. (c) berlioz 2014

      Advantages

      • "A great after sun or just as a moisturiser "
      • "Smells of summer"

      Disadvantages

      • "Expensive normally "

      The smell of summer anytime

      I always slather on moisturiser when I have been out in the sun. I usually just use whatever body lotion that I am using at the time but occasionally I like to treat myself to a nice after sun especially if I am going on holiday.

      I like the ritual of applying it and my skin always feels nicer at the end of a holiday as I moisturise so much more. I also like the smell of after suns as unlike with normal body moisturisers they just smell of summer.

      I bought this because it was for sale in Home Bargains for 3.99 and I had seen it for sale in Boot’s for much more than this so I treated myself to a tub.

      The tub is a lime green colour which matches the fragrance which is also lime. The fragrance of this is very summery and perfect for something that gets used on holiday. Even using it back home it will remind you of holidays by the pool and the beach.

      This is a brilliant moisturiser for using after being out in the sun because it is so rich and hydrating on your skin. A little bit of it goes a long way because you only need a small amount to moisturise a large area. It doesn’t feel heavy or sticky and tacky when you apply it but you can feel the difference in the level of moisture when you have applied this as it moisturises instantly.

      It hydrates your skin for ages after putting it on and even the next day you can still feel how soft your skin is.
      It contains moisturising ingredients such as cocoa, aloe, mango and shea butters as well as vitamins to leave your skin in great condition.

      If you used this constantly after sunbathing there is no way you would peel as it is so moisturising and nourishing for your skin.

      I bought this for a holiday but even using it loads on holiday it lasted me ages and I was still using it when autumn hit and it was lovely to use this when the weather wasn’t so good as it reminded me of holidays and gave me an uplifting mood. I went to buy some more but Home Bargains didn’t have it in stock anymore and I couldn’t bring myself to pay the 10.50 that Boot’s wanted knowing that I paid less than half of that at Home Bargains.I keep looking out for it now because I plan on buying a few tubs of it if it even comes back into stock.

      Advantages

      • "Decent screen"
      • "Good design"
      • "Great camera"
      • "Android OS "

      Disadvantages

      • "Can't upgrade to the latest OS"
      • "Below average chipset"
      • "Small screen"
      • "Poor battery"

      Another sony phone but nothing special.

      The Sony Xperia V smartphone is a good phone, offering some nice features. The screen is clear and responsive running with a decent resolution. This resolution is in full HD giving the user a good overall display although phones are already beginning to move onto 2k resolution it really is a let down but it does the job. Sony have given this phone Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset which is coupled with 1Gb of ram which gives this phone a good performance when carrying out normal tasks but when the phone is running multiple apps it may begin to lag. The camera is good offering 13MP which is above average and offers some good features with it. The design and build quality is good offering something everyone will like even though the screen is only 4.3inches which is disappointing for this phone. The battery on the HTC one mini will last you up to 400 hours on standby or around 7 hours of talk time which is quite poor compared to phones like the Nokia lumia 1020 and even the HTC one mini but this is on 3G so if you use 2G or 4G this will vary accordingly but not that much. This phone has a micro sd slot, which means you have the ability to expand your storage capabilities from the base 8Gb a compliment that with a 32Gb SD card. This should be more than enough for nominal use. It's OS is Android which in my opinion is very good but this can only upgrade to 4.3 and not the latest 4.4. All in all a decent phone offering some nice features.

      Advantages

      • "Good battery"
      • "Android OS"
      • "Solid build"
      • "Good design"

      Disadvantages

      • "Low resolution but sufficient"
      • "Insuffiscient storage"
      • "No micro SD card"
      • "Disappointing performance"
      • "Poor camera"

      A small phone but a big disappointment!

      The HTC one mini smartphone is a good phone, offering a fair few features but its kind of a disappointment compared to it's normal sized sibling. The screen is clear and responsive running with a decent, 720p resolution. The resolution is disappointing though as the standard resolution on almost all phones is 1080p and considering phones are already beginning to move onto 2k resolution it really is a let down but it doe's the job I guess. HTC have given this phone Snapdragons 400 chipset which is coupled with 1Gb of ram which gives this phone a good performance when executing simple tasks but when the phone is running multiple apps it can get hot and become uncomfortable to hold. The camera is a disappointed only offering 4MP which is top of the range for a phone from years ago but it's totally inadequate in today's market. The design and build quality is good carrying much of it over from the larger HTC one although the smaller phone size means a smaller screen weighing or well sizing in at 4.3inches which is expected from a mini version of any phone. The battery on the HTC one mini will last you up to 692 hours on standby or around 13 hours and 20 minutes of talk time which is better compared to larger phones like the Nokia lumia 1020 but this is on 3G so if you use 2G or 4G this will vary accordingly. This phone has no micro sd slot, which means no storage expansion and that is very disappointing as it only comes with a maximum of 16Gb which is totally insufficient. It's OS is the latest Android which in my opinion is very good but thats down to personal preference as some will like Apple and even some will like Windows. All in all an acceptable phone and I mean phone. I wouldn't be wanting this for heavy use with apps and other features.

      Advantages

      • "good quality"
      • light-weight
      • "easy to clean"
      • "easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "no lid to protect tip when in make-up bag"

      Now I can apply Gel Liner easily using this brush.

      THE PRODUCT: This is the ultimate tool for smooth, precise application or liquid or a cream eyeliner. I actually use gel liner occasionally and am actually using gel liner on my sister when I do her make-up for her wedding and I thought this would be the perfect tool to apply the product with. As the brush tip is made from silicone it means that it doesn't drag or pull at the eyelid when using it, and it also means that it can be cleaned easily. The brush come in plastic packaging clearly stating what the product is and what you can use it for. The brush handle is mainly purple and it clearly states on the side of the brush what this brush is used for. All the purple handled brushes mean that they are for the face and the gold colour handled brushes are for the face. The brush handle does have a black end to it which feels nice and smooth and slightly soft as well. The brush is a good length and around the length you would expect from a fill size make-up brush. The silicone tip to the brush is a white colour.

      PRICE/AVAILABILITY: I purchased the brush from my local Boots store for 5.99.

      USING THE BRUSH:The silicone tip on the end of the brush is quite flexible but at the same time is also slightly stiff. The brush is very lightweight and easy to hold and I found the eyeliner very easy to apply to the lid. The brush doesn’t drag along the eyelids and it ensures you can apply the product easily without making a mess. As the silicone tip is thing it means you can create a nice thin line close to the last line but you can also thicken this up using the side of the brush. The brush picks up a good amount of product so you may find that you don’t need to keep dipping it into the pot of gel liner in order to apply some more. I found the brush easy to use on my sister and it was also easy to use on myself as well to apply the product to my eyes. As the brush is made from silicone it does mean that it can be wiped easily with a facial cleansing wipe to ensure it’s nice and clean ready for when you use it next time

      Classic

      So I wanted a new radio for the kitchen that I could play whilst cooking to keep me entertained, so that I can dance and sing a long! It makes cooking that little bit more fun!

      I did not have any particular radio in mind, so I thought I would check them all out in person when I actually visit an electronic store.

      After some browsing in the store I saw this beauty on display and immediately fell in love with it. I love anything that is vintage or antique and this fits that retro look I love and am always looking for. I really liked this one because it is not too big and bulky like many other, more modern radios that you tend to see. It is the perfect size that can easily be placed on a shelf or somewhere without looking out of place or taking up too much space.

      The actual sound of the radio is fantastic! There is nothing retro about that as it is such good quality. It is also very easy to use and there is no fussing about with it.

      You can get this in many different colours to suit the look you already have or are going for.

      It is a little bit on the expensive side this cost me around one hundred pounds. This may seem like a lot, because it is, but the product you are getting is of very high value and you are definitely getting your moneys worth with this.

      I do not really use hair dryers regularly due to the fact that I like to let my hair air dry because my hair tends to get very dry very quickly, so I like to protect it as much as I can by not applying heat to them.

      So I got this hair dryer quite recently because it is always good to have one lying around - I did already have one but it was not that amazing!

      I got a Tresemme hair dryer because they specialise in this sort of hair stuff so I thought that this would most likely be a good product! I purchased this from Boots for under £25 which is fairly reasonable considering that hair dryers do not seem to break that easily and last a long time.

      Compared to my last hair dryer this one is probably a thousand times better! My hair dries far more quicker which is great because I do not have to give up half way and have wet hair when I am supposed to be going out, in winter! There are plenty of settings to choose from to please everyone!

      This comes with a little diffuser, which I tried the other day for the first time. For every hair dryer I have had I have never used the diffuser so I thought it was about time that I give this one a go. Overall I liked it, it adds a nice wavy look to your hair without it becoming frizzy, which my hair is extremely prone to doing.

      I have not really used an electric toothbrush in a long time so I thought I would give it ago!

      I do not have a reason for purchasing this particular make, I just did! I had not done any research into this toothbrush beforehand but I thought Philips is quite a big and trusted brand so I did not think that I could go wrong with this to be honest.

      I purchased this from Boots for only £44.99 which was a bargain. It would have cost me £89.99 but it was on offer, so I can not complain. Also, if you have a Boots Advantage card, use it and, you get so many points!

      So, the toothbrush comes with some travel wash bags, which is always handy. And because it has a rechargeable battery it means it can last up to 3 weeks, so you can even take it on holiday without it being too bulky.

      The toothbrush as the cool feature of having a two minute timer. This ensures that you are brushing your teeth for the recommend amount of time AND it automatically turns off when you are done.

      I really like this toothbrush because you can feel the effects of it, it leaves your teeth squeaky clean and feeling super fresh! It is easy to use and basic so even if you are not that technologically savvy you will be fine! Also, it has a great battery life that lasts a very long time which means you do not have to continuously charge it.
