      Advantages

      • Soothes
      • Warming

      Disadvantages

      • "Can irritate some skins"
      • "Strong smell"

      Hot, Strong but Rather Smelly!


      Deep heat rub is something I first remember my father using, years ago, when he suffered from sciatica. And how could anyone ever not remember the strong smell of this cream?
      I have used Deep heat myself several times and have also bought it for my husband and my children over the years.

      My husband has often suffered with back problems probably due to his steel fixing days and although his career is now in a different field the back problems still return at times.
      As for my children (who are now grown up) this cream has been used on their many sports injuries. I would say my sons have used this more than my daughters as they tended to play more football and rugby than the girls did. But I’m all for equality and my daughters did play some team sports.

      ==What is Deep Heat Rub?==

      Deep heat rub is a rub used to relive pain from general and sports injuries. As it is used directly on the skin it does act quickly.

      The rub contains mentholatum which is warm on the skin. Once Deep Heat is absorbed into one’s skin it begins to work, reaching and easing, or even ‘killing’ the pain as it penetrates. It helps to get the circulation going around the injured or troublesome area which helps to relax and ease.

      It is non-greasy.

      ==How effective is it?==

      I think pain is caused by many things and sometimes a doctor is needed to assess the pain. I would say that in the case of muscular pain Deep Heat can help with pain but I don’t think it does anything spectacular, or it hasn't with me, or mine.

      I used to find with my sons that if I gave them Deep Heat they at least felt I was sympathetic and sometimes wonder if this rub had a placebo affect. But to be fair, mentholatum is soothing and does help somewhat.

      Personally I find the best relief from muscular pain is a hot water bottle applied to the site.

      ==What is it used for?==

      According to the manufacturers, Deep Heat Rub can be used to treat pain resulting from the following conditions:

      Sprains
      Lumbago
      Rheumatic pain
      Sciatica
      Muscle stiffness

      ==Overall Thoughts==

      I think that Deep Heat Rub is a useful medication to keep in one’s first aid cabinet for injuries. In my opinion it provides relief from pain although I haven’t found it to ease the pain entirely.

      The negatives about this rub are that it has a very strong smell and also I have found that it can cause skin irritation on the site where it has been applied.

      Hands need to be washed very soon after applying to get rid of the smell and protect against skin irritation.

      ==Price==

      Deep Heat Rub is widely available and comes in different sizes.

      Boots sell the 100ml tube for £5.39

      • "Lasts ages"
      • "Great Smell"
      • "Gives super smooth lips"

      Disadvantages

      • None!

      Excellent lip balm, my saviour!

      I am always on the look out for a great lip care product. I am just one of those people who ALWAYS has dry, chapped lips and will never leave the house without having a lip balm to hand. Having tried a great many lip balms, I consider myself to be a bit of a connoisseur and am also a massive fan of Burt's Bees so when I saw this little beauty on the shelf in Boots I was convinced my prayers had been answered!

      I have used one of the other Burt's Bees lip balms previously and found that to be very good so had high hopes. When I first tried this lip balm, what I noticed was how easily and smoothly it went on to my lips - it had great coverage and made my lips feel great immediately, big tick straight away! Secondly I noticed the lovely smell of the product. Having used many lip balms, I can honestly say that not all lip balms are created equal in terms of smell! This has a lovely subtle scent which is not too overpowering and adds a soothing feel to the product too.

      In terms of the price point, I am fully aware that some people may think it is a bit much but I am of the opinion that you get what you pay for - this, for me, is definitely worth the money as I will do anything in my power to get the super smooth lips that I dream of!

      I would recommend this to anyone, I use it for everyday and would not use anything else.

      Advantages

      • "Good overall audio"
      • "Four HDMI inputs"
      • "Not that expensive"

      Disadvantages

      • "Looks old"
      • "Not very good bass"

      Onkyo TX SR313S-Another winner here

      Onkyo’s acclaimed WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) to its entry-level A/V receivers, home cinema fans on a budget can now enjoy greater fidelity than ever before. This 5.1-channel AVR packs an array of features into a compact and stylish cabinet—all designed to perfect audio performance and seamlessly integrate your A/V components into one intelligent and powerful system.

      Specifications

      The box contains:TX-SR313,Indoor FM antenna,AM loop antenna,Speaker cable labels,Instruction manual of course,a Quick start guide an Remote controller and AA (R6) batteries x 2.It is very easy to set up even if you did not own such devices before,just by looking in the instruction manual.

      My personal opinion

      I am going to start off with "very good"!The device has some real useful features,it delivers what promised.Four HDMI inputs on the TX-SR313 allow you to easily integrate high-definition devices such as Blu-ray players, cable/satellite tuners, and gaming consoles,while a USB port offers a clean digital link to your iPod/iPhone or flash memory drive.HDMI implementation on this receiver also supports an Audio Return Channel, allowing audio received directly by your TV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” to the A/V receiver. That means you can enjoy television programs,the HDMI also supports 3D video and numerous other high-resolution formats, and has the added advantage of reducing cable clutter for a cleaner and simpler install.

      The receiver’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, using the system’s own remote for track selection and playback. The music will also sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.This entire list I just put out basically means you will hear it exactly how it's meant to be heard.

      It has the bad too,the baddest of them all is the bass,if you crank it up even a bit you will fell like a ship sets sail next to you,also it wants to look dusty and old for some reason.

      Overall Onkyo TX SR313S,especially great for the buck,highly recommend,get the silver one,never looks dusty.

      Advantages

      • fun
      • addictive

      Disadvantages

      • "makes me feel dizzy if played for too long"

      challenging and easy at the same time...odd.

      This game was the first of the lego series that I purchased, so naturally didn't really know what to expect from it. From the packaging it looks like quite a child friendly game add that the 7 rating think you can safely say children would love it!

      First thing to notice, of course this game is in 3D, so when your'e wandering around aimlessly trying to find a part to go on a wheel or a secret entrance, it can make you feel a little dizzy therefore restricting how long you actually might stay on the game. With the 3D turned down very low, it makes this feeling less, but definitely still there.

      Lord of the rings os such a huge trilogy, I was sceptical in how it could cram all the detail and storylines into one relatively small game, I was right. It misses out alot of the storylines and when you get to the narrative, it's an effort not to skip it (which after many attempts discovered that you can by pressing the start key).

      Other than hobbiton, the scenes seem very dull, colours all beng a mixture of greys and browns, which in my opinion is not very appealing and sometimes difficult to see, especially if you're tryig to find an object. It doesn't really capture the whole sense of middle earth and even though being in 3D, seems to be a bit flat and almost boring.

      As I said before, I'm new to the whole lego experience, so general gameplay I found quite fun, but after a while it felt like alot of the taasks were just finding things and putting them in their righful place. I found it at times a bit repetitive, and felt there should be more of a challenge. Then there were the boss style challenges like the cave troll in Moria and Shelob, where it was incredibly frustrating trying to find a week spot on them and trying to get in as many hits as possible, before you're inevitably stood on or stung (something whhich is basically unavoidable). Oh yes and don't worry about that as even if you lose all of you're hearts you regnerate straight away anyway, so even though annoying, really nothing to worry about.

      Having finished this game, I would reccomend it to those who are new to lego games, just so you can get to grips with basic functions and not expect to much from it. I have yet to start the freeplay version and hope f gives me a wider variety of worlds to play in and some more interesting chllenges, and maybe more variety of characters. If your'e not new to lego games maybe gve this one a miss.

      Advantages

      • "No unpleasent smells"
      • "easy to eat"
      • "caters for all ages"
      • "a complete meal for dogs"

      Disadvantages

      • none

      Bakers have it completely right with there love of dogs....

      My dogs likes to eat, as all dogs do, and he'll eat almost anything that he classes as food, (and no, it's not worms, he is regularly wormed and there are no signs of worms in him... he is just greedy).

      Anyway, since getting him, many years ago, when he was a puppy, we have always fed him on bakers-complete, starting with the puppy formula, now on the 'normal' one and, god willing, giving him the senior one when he begins to slow down.

      Bakers have a wide selection of dogs foods, catering for all ages, from puppies to seniors, with each box/bag stating which is which. This means that the puppies one has smaller bits that are easier to chew and made ideally for puppies, with the senior one being softer and better for the elderly dog.

      As my dog is in the middle, being nine(ish), we just get the 'normal' food which consists of good size bites that my dogs loves. Each piece of food has its own flavour, although as I have not tasted them I can't say what they flavour is. But each piece adds to the dogs health by giving them the things they need to keep fit and healthy -- I sound like an advert? -- , such things as Protein, fibre, energy, vitamins and minerals. So each mouthful is keeping your dog up and running.

      They have a few flavours, lamb, duck, chicken and beef, with my dogs favourite going to the lamb, although he does enjoy them all. I tend to buy a different one each time so that he's not having the same flavour day in day out.

      They come in different size boxes, and bags, starting at 1.3kg box to a whopping 14kg bag. I tend to get the 5kg bags as they last almost a week which means that he gets a different flavour on a weekly basis, more or less.

      The only other thing that you have to remember when giving any dog, or cat, dry food is to make sure that they have a constant supply of fresh water, which means, as dogs can't turn taps on unless very well trained, you have to make sure the water bowl has been filled up.

      The price of a happy healthy dog is between £2.00 for a 1.3kg box to about £20+ for the large 14kg bag. (prices do vary depending on the shops so shop around to find the lowest price. It is worth it as dogs seem to love the taste of this.

      Aussie miracle hair insurance

      My hair is dry and difficult to manage. In the damp weather my curls become a frizzy mess! I like to colour and highlight my hair and this can cause further damage. My hairdresser recently recommended I try a leave in conditioner from the Aussie range and so I took her advice.



      Aussie miracle hair insurance is a lightweight spray conditioner designed to be left on the hair. It comes in a 250ml opaque white plastic bottle with mauve spray pump action nozzle. The nozzle has a small plastic cover to keep it clean. The bottle has embossed kangaroos around it implying that this is an Australian product. In fact a little research uncovers that Aussie is owned by the multi- national American company, proctor and Gambol. The Australian reference is from the ingredients used such as Australian jojoba oil seed. Just to confuse things further the bottle I have states it was made in France! That aside, it’s how well it delivers on its promises that count!

      Aussie miracle insurance is advertised as a saviour for weak distressed hair. It promises to protect and detangle. I find I need to wash my hair every day to enable me to tame it as it is impossible to get a comb through the morning tangles without doing so. This is not great for my hair and strips it of moisture. This spray contains jojoba seed oil something that has been used for centuries as a moisturiser.



      The first time I used the spray I decided to give the morning wash a miss. I sprayed a few bursts and massaged through my hair with my fingers. The smell is gorgeous, sweet but not overpowering. The spray is very fine and I found it really easy to use. Best of all I was able to comb through my locks easily with no breakage as often happens. After use my hair feels soft and has a good shine.


      The spray can be used on either wet or dry hair and works well either way. I bought my bottle from Boots were the range is on offer at 3 products from the Aussie range for £10. Bought alone the 250ml bottle costs around £4.49. Overall I can highly recommend this spray and will definitely be buying it again!

      Advantages

      • "Nice and white"
      • "Does exactly what it is supposed to do"
      • "Simple to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "'C' grade"

      A knight in white armour when it comes to getting clothes dry in the winter

      It is a big white box shaped unit that is about the standard size for a tumble dryer, being about 600mm wide by 530mm deep and 850mm high. The only things on the front are the timer, which goes up to 120 minutes, the other is the heat setting switch, high or low, gentle. There is also the door, which is a good 400mm in diameter, with the actual hole that you shove your washing through being about 250mm in diameter.
      It has a simple to use dial timer, which means you just turn the dial to the correct minute setting, up to two hours, or 120 minutes, which ever comes first, then let the machine do what it's designed to do. Around the dial there are markers for different choices, such as 'freshen up', 'polyester', 'cotton dry' and others.
      The last twenty minutes of time are what is known in the dryer world as 'cooling down time', which means that instead of hot drying air coming through the unit it's colder air so that the machine cools down faster.
      There are two heat settings, low and high. These are designed to cater for more of your laundry, the more delicates that may become damaged if heated to much in the dryer, hence the lower setting which is cooler.

      It has a reverse tumble motion which is supposed to help when it comes to ironing as well as drying the clothes a little easier as they are separated a little more in the reverse/forward changing.
      The 100mm diameter outlet pipe that the warm arm exits the dryer through is nearly two metres long, when un-flexed, shrinking to almost nothing when pushed back into the back of the unit in a sort of concertina fashion.

      It has an energy rating of 'C', which is not to bad for what I paid for this machine, although I suppose if I spent more money to get an 'A' grade then I may make my money back over time on the electricity I've saved? But I did not. I bought this grade 'C; one.
      It can be a bit on the grumbling noisy side, but no more than other dryer that I have had, and it's a little quieter on the reverse cycle, which means that you can tell the difference between the directions, if you wanted to that is.

      The price of this one is about £100 - £120, which is not bad as it does a good job in drying the clothes when it's too wet to hang them on the line.

      Advantages

      • "My cats like to eat it very much"

      Disadvantages

      • "It costs alot of money"

      Sheba beef terrine

      WHAT IS IT?

      This is cat food that is made into a terrine style of dish. It is meaty and made with beef but the beef has been made into like a loaf so even though it is still in chunks it stays together when it is served onto the plate.

      WHAT I THINK

      My cats like this food very much and I think it is good for them to eat because it smells and looks alot like real meat but it is still cat food and so the meal does not look like it is very nice to me! The jelly sauce that is around the chunks of meat smells nicer than on normal cat food also.

      My cats eat all of this food when I put it down for them and they are not hungry after they have eaten everything that is in their bowls. All of my cats like it and that is a shock because usually they leave some food and go back to eat it later and it is a shock also when all of my cats like to eat the same food.

      I think this terrine is good for their insides also because it does not make their feces smell bad when they go to the toilet after eating it and that is good because I have got one cat who uses a litter tray and I hate it when she has food that makes it smell very bad.

      I am very happy to give my cats this food because there is enough to feed them even though it looks like a very small portion only when I take it out of the tray to feed it to them.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      This food costs about 70p for a serving and I think that is alot because I have got 3 cats and so the cost mounts up quick because of the way they all like it. I do not buy it all the time for that reason but it is a nice treat for them and I but it one or two times a week for them to enjoy.

      5 Dooyoo Stars.

      Island Kiss

      Escada’s Island Kiss is a fragrance I have wanted for ages and I finally purchased a bottle earlier this year.


      Price and availability
      It is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles.
      The 30ml bottle is quite difficult to find. It would normally cost GBP22.00 and is currently out of stock on the Debenhams website.
      The 50ml and 100ml bottles are available in larger Debenhams stores, but they are not on the website.
      The 50ml bottle can be purchased from allbeauty.com for GBP24.95 (RRP GBP32.50).
      The 100ml bottle is available at allbeauty.com for GBP29.25 (RRP GBP44.50).


      Packaging
      The fragrance comes in a bright blue and pink box with a cartoon silhouette of a woman on the front. It also has, ‘limited edition’ in small letters underneath the fragrance name, but it was a 2011 release and is still in stores in 2014.
      The packaging seems very young and fun, but I don’t think of Escada as a cheap or childish brand.
      The bottle itself is different to that shown. It is a lovely bright blue colour. It is quite tall with curved edges and it has a lovely, chunky, cylindrical cap, which is silver to finish the bottle off.
      ‘Escada,’ is in large white lettering across the front of the bottle, but the name of the fragrance is not shown on the bottle and is not even on the tiny label on the base.
      There is a pink ribbon around the neck of the bottle and there is a small, silver palm tree charm attached to it.
      I like the bottle. It is bright and fun and I really like the shape.


      Scent
      The fragrance is available as an eau de toilette.
      It has top notes of orange, passion flower and mango.
      It has heart notes of peach and magnolia.
      The base notes are listed as woody notes and sensual musk.
      The fragrance is really light and fruity. It has an exotic, tropical smell, which I think comes from the passion flower.
      The orange in this fragrance is not overpowering or intensely citrusy. I hadn’t noticed the fragrance had an orange note until I read through the list of notes and then gave it another sniff.
      It is a very sweet, fruity scent. I don’t tend to find sweet, fruity scents sickly sweet, but I can imagine some people would find this one a bit too much. It is quite intense for an eau de toilette.
      I really like the scent of this. I think it is one that I have to be in the mood for and it is definitely one I associate with spring and summer more than the cooler autumn and winter months.
      Although it does have quite an intense scent at first it doesn’t last too long on my skin. I’d say it lasts around 4 hours before completely wearing off and although the bottle isn’t the least handbag friendly I prefer not to carry full size perfume bottles around with me so that I can top up throughout the day.
      I still like to use this fragrance as it provides a lovely boost of freshness and it is lovely while it lasts.
      I can’t honestly detect the woody or musky notes in this fragrance even as it wears on. There doesn’t seem to be anything taking away from the vibrant, fruity notes in this eau de toilette.
      I imagine this fragrance is one that younger girls will love. It is quite girly in no way mature. I am in my late twenties and I love this when I’m in the mood for it.
      I think my niece who is 11 would love it, but I think more mature women might find this a bit too sweet. I usually find sweet scents very bearable and quite enjoy them, but occasionally do find myself thinking, ‘Wow this one is sweet!’ when I smell Island Kiss. It is lovely, but I do have to be in the mood for it.

      I enjoy using this fragrance. It is lovely and refreshing and has a lovely, fruity scent for summer. I am glad I bought this and I would consider buying it again if my bottle was to run out. I also like the bottle and think that the fragrance is reasonably priced.
      I would recommend this fragrance particularly for teens or younger women.

      A medicine cabinet essential for parents

      Calpol infant suspension is a strawberry flavoured pain relief and fever control medicine. It is for babies and children from 2 months up to 6 years and is an essential item in any parents medicine cabinet.

      Calpol can be purchased in original or sugar free versions. Both are strawberry flavoured but one is pink in colour and the other (the sugar free one) is milky white. It is also available in a box of individual sachets but I find these harder to administer and less cost effective. The medicine comes in a 100ml bottle and is supplied with either a plastic double ended spoon or a syringe. Personally I have found that the syringe makes administering the medicine easier for babies under 18 months but the spoon is more useful (and easier to clean) for older toddlers and children. Calpol is extremely sticky so you really want to avoid and spills or drips. Although very young babies often do not like being given medicine, older babies and children all seem to like Calpol so there is no persuasion required. You need to give it a good shake before using as it does seem to settle a little bit. It should also be kept away from direct sunlight.

      Calpol is a paracetamol based medicine with each 5ml suspension containing 120 mg of paracetamol. It is suggested for use in the case of teething, headache, tooth ache, sore throat, post immunisation, fever, cold and flu, earache and other aches and pains.

      It really does seem to soothe my children no matter what the ailment. It helps them to sleep if they have a cold and usually brings down a fever pretty rapidly. The only time I choose a different baby medicine over this one is during when I find an ibuprofen based medicine more effective. However, at £2.99 per bottle it is very reasonably priced and I would highly recommend it. We never let our stocks run out!

      I have only stopped at this travelodge once and it's one of the few I would not use again unless I really had to.

      This travelodge has been done up with the new look since I stopped there so the state of the rooms will have improved but not the rest.

      I unfortunately booked to go to see something on at the theatre the same night the football was on and something at the arena, I was not able to get in anywhere and paid £90 for a room here.

      The hotel is actually not all that far from Piccadilly station but it is not easy to find, it's tucked behind the main shopping area a few streets back and is not in the nicest of areas if you a single person walking home at night, something I learnt the hard way.

      The hotel has a rather small and when I was there understaffed reception, a small bar and seating/dining area. I did not eat at this hotel so can not comment on the food.

      The room for me was one of the biggest let downs, it was tiny! I had a double that the bed barely fit in, then a long bench that should have been a dresser but there was no space for a chair in front of it and no mirror as it was below a long window.

      I also had a damaged bedside table unit that had been torn off the wall and left with just a jagged splintered jut of wood, I did not feel this was safe but they were unable to move me rooms. On top of this the top that was left was vile, covered in sticky residue and bits of fluff and hair.

      The main problem with this hotel is the noise, it is right in the middle of one of the main areas of nightlife and goes on till the very early hours, I did not get a minutes sleep.

      The chair was placed at the end of the bed and I had to keep edging past it to get to the bed, I stubbed my toes many times but the chair itself was also worn and filthy, it was stained and frankly there was no way I was sitting on it.

      The bedding itself was clean and the bed comfortable but between the drunk people rolling in and the noise from the clubs it was of little comfort.

      This hotel has the usual bath with the shower over it in all rooms.

      This hotel also woke me to ask me to leave before my late check out time even though I had paid for one.

      If you are going out and in a group I would say this hotel maybe alright since it's make over but it's not the first one I would choose of the seven Travelodges in manchester.

      Advantages

      • "light weight"

      Disadvantages

      Light weight and love the double zip!

      I recently purchased one of these Kipling purses in black in a pattern called tropic flower, it is an old design which I already had the handbag and loved it. I had given up looking for the purse when I happened to be walking through a store with concession stands the other day and one was sat there.

      The purse is brilliant, I love the design! There is a main zip that once pulled back reveals three inside sections, the two outer ones have no further covering and I use them for cards and notes but in the middle there is another zip over final section which I use for coins. Why I love this design so much is so many times I put my purse into my handbag only to realise I forgot to zip it up and the coins are all loose in my handbag. Because there are two zips, this never happens!

      The purse is a nice size 14.5cm x 9.5cm x 5cm, on the side there is a tiny little rubber black monkey on the tropic flower design but I do know the plain colours have the regular fluffy monkey. My bag also has the small rubber one so it appears to be something specific to the design.

      As with most Kipling items it is made of lightweight nylon making it very light and easy to clean.

      The RRP of the purse was £21 which is what I paid for it but the design I bought is no longer available.

      I have had so many Kipling products over the years and they have never let me down, they are always hard wearing, light weight and very easy to clean if they get dirty. The nylon ones are actually able to be even throw into a light wash in the washing machine and come out looking like new (removing the monkey's first). I would never have any problems recommending them to anyone! I am yet to fault one!

      Advantages

      • "non drowsy"
      • "Works fast "

      Disadvantages

      Fast action and non drowsy.

      I have used Beconase for many years now, I always suffer bad hayfever but I struggle even with non drowsy tablets. I have found that the spray works better than the tablets for me with no side effects at all.

      The spray comes in a small blue and white cardboard box. Inside is the small spray, bottle with a long nose tip that has a funny looking paddle shaped button either side of the base of the tip. On top of the tip is a removable cap, to use take the cap off, insert the tip into one of the nostril and press the paddle button down to release the spray twice. Repeat with other nostril morning and night to relieve symptoms.

      Never use more than 8 sprays a day.

      Beconase is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

      Beconase nasal sprays can be used to relieve hayfever and other allergies, it works by reducing the inflammation in the nostril passage relieving the symptoms of blocked, stuffy noses, sneezing and watery eyes.

      I really can not tell you how many years I have used this brand, for me it really is the most effective on the market and I have not often strayed. I usually find I start seeing effects within about an hour of using the spray but it builds up with each day used.

      This is possibly one of the largest brand names when it comes to allergy sprays and is stocked in most chemists and supermarkets.

      The product claims that it has 100 sprays in each bottle, I can not confirm it this is correct or not because I have never counted the entire bottle but it does normally last me about 2 months of use during the summer.

      Average cost of this item is £6.00, which sounds a lot but it does last a decent amount of time for that.

      For me it's 5 our of 5 and I would have no problems recommending this product to anyone with allergies.
