I have used this product in various shades many times, mainly because it's one of the very few semi-permanent products on the market. I like to use semi-permanent mainly because it doesn't stain skin too badly if you gets splashes (especially as you can't see the back of your neck or behind your ears too easily). Having said that, the semi-permanence basically means it washes out really quick, and doesn't give the best coverage - a good job it's a reasonably priced as it is as you have to buy it much more often. 'Naturally blends away greys' in my opinion means it will colour but not hide your grey hairs, so that when you get re-growth you won't notice so much as it wasn't fully covered in the first place! Give it its dues, it is trult easy to use, there seems to be plenty enough to apply to medium length hair without needing a second bottle, and leaves your hair very shiny and smelling lovely. However, contrary to the claims that ash tones combat redness in hair, whatever shade I choose my hair always end up with an auburn hue, despite having no natural red in my hair. The 'medium' brown is more dark brown really and the dark brown could be re-labelled 'goth' or 'Morticia'. Ok, as long as you realise before you get started. All in all, despite my criticism I will contionue to use this product knowing its down-sides as it offers good value for money overall.
Ok, so it's not an iPhone or a smartphone, but I expected a bit more out of this handset to be honest. It looks nice, to start with, but even the gentlest touch couldn't keep it looking as shiny as you'd expect. The keys quickly started to lose their 'varnish' or finish or whatever and I'm not an excessive texter. It does everything it's basically supposed to, but even sending a message took about 6 clicks by the time you'd searched your address book and added recipients. The menus in general were multi-level and clumsy to navigate. I missed many an incoming call because the volume of the ringer was just too low, even on the maximum setting. Despite careful discharging/recharging the battery soon became inefficient as with many mobile phones, disappointing as that was the reason I got rid of the previous one. There was no way that I found to lock the phone easily - simply sliding it open unlocked it, which was not good when you have youngsters around. Another very annoying thing, it was so shiny it was very easy to lose a grip of and drop!
Well, it took me a long time to get round to getting one, but my how I fallen in love with this baby. Tons cheaper than an iPhone, but (from what I can tell) the ability to download and customise to make it just as good. Nice, compact 'hand-sized' phone with nicely rounded edges and a slim design. Nice bog screen for the size of the handset too. Could ring a little louder generally, but the 'in-pocket' function that makes it call louder when it senses it's inside a pocker or handbag is an unexpected bonus! Being a novice it's been a dream to work my way around, downloading apps and widgets is a doddle. Haven't yet worked out if there's a way to get it to remind you audibly if you've an unanswered message - if that's not possible that's a missed trick for sure. Maybe I just need to spend more time browsing the Apps Market to find what I'm looking for. One gripe, and it's not much of one, it doesn't seem to display photos as wallpaper very weel, even when they are portrait it tend sto zoom in, so even the best framed portrait pic doesn't display as is. Shame.
