Last year I got so many colds it was unbelievable so I decided to make a real effort to up my healthy living and hand hygiene because I didn't want another one. Everyone says that washing your hands is a great way of preventing the germs that you pick up on the surfaces you touch from getting into your body. But sometimes it isn't easy to wash my hands when I'm out and about like when I'm travelling on the bus. People around me often cough and sneeze and then they touch the bell and straps and I touch them too. So I noticed people using a hand sanitizer when they got off the bus so I decided to get 1 myself.
You can use these when there is no soap and water to clean your hands. You just squeeze some of the gel into your hands and it kills any germs without you needing to have a sink. Some sanitizers I saw were really expensive but then I found 1 in Wilko, a little bottle that was only 50p. I decided to pick the berry one because some of the sanitizers I've used smelled disgusting. Berry's got to be better than that right?
Most sanitizing gels are a bit runny than something like a gel should be. This one is the same so you've got to be careful not to squeeze out too much because you're going to be making a mess when you don't have a sink around to clean yourself up. But if you squeeze it out gently this is a nice product to use on your hands. It does smell of berry. The smell doesn't last very long for me. When you smell it on your hands later it smells more of the alcohol that inside that kill the germs but it's not too strong. The gell doesn't feel sticky or nasty on my hands. It does dry quickly so once you've rubbed it in you can just get on with your day and don't have to try and find some tissue to dry off. Wilko say this kills most germs on your hand. As you can't see them, I just have to believe that this is true but I think it works because since I've been making more effort to use this it stopped my run of colds. So I would recommend this hand gel. It's a lot cheaper than most, it's nice and easy to use and it smells lovely.
We choose the APH at Ham'sHall for Birmingham Airport as it is juts off the A38 our road to and from home to the airport . the bus takes you direct to the terminal once you leave your car, the car is parked outside and when you come back you are given your key and told which lane it is in. You have to walk to find the car. They give you the code for getting out of the gate on a piece of card so the place is pretty secure.
The bus come quite quickly so long as you phone after passport while you are waiting at the luggage carousel, by the time your luggage comes through you usually only have to wait a couple of minutes for the bus to take you to the car park.
we have used this service for around ten years now and never had any problems.
These are normally priced at £4.49 for a pack of 25 wipes and they are available in places such as Boots, Tescos, Asda and Superdrug.
The wipes come in a small white packet which I find makes them easier to transport in my makeup bag, I tend to use wipes more so when I go on holiday as its a lot easy to take a pack of these in my suitcase than to take a bottle of cleanser, toner and cotton wool, my hubby already moans at my that when we go away, my toiletries and hair bag is heavier than his suitcase alone.
The packet has a golden coloured hard plastic lid on the front which keep all the wipes secure in the pack rather than having a bit on cellophane which fastens the pack, I prefer packs that have these as I have used packs before with the cellophane and they lose their stickiness over time which causes the wipes to dry out. The packet is about half the size of a packet of baby wipes, measuring around 3inches x 4inches. I would describe the packaging as very basic and simple but I feel that gives the package quite an expensive look to them.
They have quite a fresh fragrance to them, although I couldn’t pick out the exact notes, the fragrance does seem to have quite a perfumes element to them and best of all, it is quite long lasting and in line with the moisturiser and toner. The wipes are deigned for mature skin.
I must say, out of all the wipes I have used, these probably do have the most luxurious feel of all; they are extremely soft, moist and thick so they don't disintegrate when I use them. I use the wipes at the end of the day to remove all traces of my makeup, starting with my eyes and then working my way out; I do find that they are great at removing my eye makeup, even my waterproof mascara. Because the wipes are so thick, I tend to use one side of the wipes to remove my makeup and then the other to remove and dirt or grime.
Although I said these are moist, they don't leave my face feeling wet like other wipes have in the past, after using, my skin feels lovely, soft and smooth and ready for my to apply my moisturiser. Since using, I have never experienced any skin irritations, dryness or tightness. I would definitely recommend these wipes and in my opinion, they are the best I have used so they would get 5 out of 5 stars.
I have found eating hoummous to be a useful way in recent years to up my vegetable eating every day. I really enjoy dipping raw carrot sticks into it as a snack and it is the main way I eat sweet peppers which because they come in so many bright colours are supposed to be so good for you.
This 200g tub cost me £1. There should have been a Tesco Value version of it next to it in a bigger tub for the same price but it was out of stock then. I later went on to try it later and I have to say it is actually better than this standard Tesco product. I don't mean that the standard Tesco one is a bad product however. It is tasty, not too garlicky as I have had before. It had a detectable taste of lemon too which gives a zing to it. I have never tried homemade hoummous so I can't compare this product to that but I was satisfied taste wise.
What I did not like about the product was that it was quite rough. There was quite a few bits of chickpea in it that were a bit on the tough side. It may be more authentic I think to not be entirely smooth but personally I prefer it if my dip is smooth.
The fat content of a quarter of the plastic tub that it comes in is 19 per cent of the recommended daily though it is only 7 per cent of saturated fat level. I could easily dip my way through half at a time so that is something I will bare in mind.
I recommend this product but would say texture wise the value version is better.
I have used ebuyer for a variety of items from Monitors to HDD and SSD drives to flash drives over a period of 7 years and have been pleased with all my purchases. When I've had questions the telephone and enote team have responded quickly and thoroughly. I have had another positive experience with them this week (thank you Wayne) which has prompted me to write my first review on doyoo. Keep up the good work!
The Dyson weighs 8kg which I suppose it is a little heavy however having said that, I can easily carry up and down stairs without any issues. What I like is that the Dyson does have a convenient carry handle situated on the top of the cylinder.
It has a 8.2m cord which is quite a lot, I can easily plug this it the kitchen which as the back of my house and manage to vacuum up all downstairs and half way upstairs (which is at the front of the house) without having to unplug and plug into another room.
Dyson also state that this has capacity of 2.3litres, I have no idea whether this is good or bad to be honest, what I will say is that I tend to vacuum up three or four times a week and I don't have to empty it more than once a month.
I prefer an upright vacuum so this ticks all the boxes, they are easy to manoeuvre around the room, the only down side of an upright is that it is a little trickier when I want to get into those hard to reach places such as under the bed. When it comes to these places, I have to use the hose attachment but on the plus side, the hose is really long, I can leave my Dyson at the bottom of the stairs and use the hose to vacuum all the way to the very last step. The hose however is quite stiff and it does need a little bit of force when stretching it a long was as it does try and 'coil' back up. I must say that I find the hose just as powerful as the vacuum itself and I have never experienced any loss of suction when using.
The Dyson comes with several different attachments to use on the end of the hose, all of which are stored actually on the Dyson so it makes it really handy when I want to use one of them and again, changing the attachment is done in just a couple of clicks.
I find that the Dyson performs well on all flooring types, in our house, we have a mixture of carpets, tiles, lino and laminate and the Dyson easily makes the transition to each floor covering and cleans excellently on all four.
I have had my Dyson a couple of years now and it still cleans like the first day I had it.
Although I don't get many coughs and colds I am prone to sore throats and when I do I always reach for the Strepsils. These ones are different from the usual Strepsils as they contain menthol which can help to unblock your nose. I have used other brands in the past but find that these are the most effective. They come in three separate strips of 12 lozenges each in a row of 3 x 4 and are easily popped out of the foil.
I usually buy them in the pack of 36 as I find this is better value, as they are usually around £4 for this size and around £3 for the pack of 16, however I bought these from an independent chemist for £2.50. I've actually just checked the sell by date to make sure that they are in date but is almost twelve months left! They also come in packs of 10 and 16 but I always find that the larger packs are better value.
They contain two antiseptics, (2,4-dichloobenzyl alcohol 1.2mg, Amylmetacresol 0.6mg), which is supposed to relieve discomfort of sore throats and I find that it really does work for me. Even before I have finished sucking a lozenge my throat feels less sore and doesn't hurt so much when I swallow. They melt in your mouth and you can feel a warm sensation down your throat. You also get a coating in your mouth and a bit of a numb feeling but this soon disappears.
They are suitable for adults and children over 6 years old and the recommended dosage is one lozenge to be sucked slowly in the mouth every two hours and to have no more than 12 lozenges in one day. I usually have about 4-6 in a day or more if I need them.
Although there are cheaper brands on the market in my opinion these are well worth it as they work well for me and also taste great. I would say that they are suitable for a general sore throat but if you have a severe sore throat you may have an infection and these wouldn't be sufficient for that purpose but I find them adequate for a minor sore throat.
I bought this Dove body wash from a local discount store for £1.50 which I think is a good price for a 300ml bottle. It has a white flip top which you click down securely after use to secure and the tube is easy to squeeze as it stands on the lid so the gel is always at the squeezy end. I find that I only need about a ten pence piece size of the gel to squeeze onto my sponge and this is enough for my whole body. I will rub it into the sponge until it starts to foam which it does very quickly and unlike some other shower gels the bubbles seem to increase as I am washing rather than disappearing so I never have to use a second squeeze.
It smells lovely and fresh and would be suitable for all the family. I can smell it on my skin for a long time after using it and my skin does feel soft and hydrated. I do feel that I am giving my skin the best care by using this product as I know that I am not using any chemicals or unnatural ingredients. I do recommend this shower gel as it leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling lovely for a long time after using it with a natural smell rather than a synthetic smell. It is ideal to use every day for all skin types as it is kind to your skin and I am happy to recommend it and will definitely buy it again
The Clarins Exfoliating Body Scrub is available for GBP 29.00.
The body scrub is described as follows. "The essential first step to achieving a firm, youthful-looking body. This refreshing, exfoliating treatment (with smoothing Natural Bamboo Powders) 'rubs away' rough, flaky surface cells and impurities, giving skin a sleek new start. Also, prepares skin for the treatment that follows."
Even when testing on the back of the hand me the pleasant texture of the product was made a positive impression. The colorless lotion is slightly oily and can thereby be easily and evenly with the cotton pad. In addition, the skin is now noticeably smoother, softer and gentler. Despite the slightly oily consistency of the lotion but this is very easily, absorbs quickly and is non-greasy after. Another plus is the parsimony in the application. Just a few drops are enough for the face and neck. In comparison, I needed from my bisheigen peeling significantly more. Also the result is convincing. The manufacturer promises that the lotion refines the skin, is clearly adhered to. I was also able to use my new exfoliating lotion no change in the reaction of my skin notice the sun, but I have to say that the one hand I do not quickly get a sunburn and the other hand was already pre-tanned, because I've been on vacation shortly before was. How to cope with lighter skin tones of this increased sensitivity to the sun, I can not say. All in all I am very satisfied with the exfoliating lotion. Although it is slightly more expensive, but on the one hand it is very economical to use, and on the other the result is convincing. My skin is now much clearer and smoother and the pores act at least smaller.

The Elnett Very Volume Supreme Hold Hairspray is available for GBP 4.00.
The hairspray is described as follows. "Enriched with Pro-Keratin, Elnett Very Volume creates effortless volume for fresh, natural-looking hairstyles that hold all day. Its unique micro-diffuser sprays ultra-fine and disappears at the stroke of a brush."
Elnett is unlike other hairsprays quite expensive. I'm not sure when it comes to price. This Haarspry verpricht volume and extra strong hold. It Eigent therefore very good for updos and teased hair. I availed the spray only to fix, for that I spuehe it either in the neck or on my ponytail. I notice in addition to this version, the normal, so I can pretty well the differences between the two products. This hairspray actually has a much stronger hold. It remains there all day where it should stay. The hairs do not fly, and do not fall apart hairstyles. What I find so good Elnett, which is not glued the hair unnecessary. It can be brushed out ohnere More again. Of course you feel the hair spray, the hair feels harder than usual. The remains at an extra strong hold but not made. I availed of this spray for some time and am satisfied. Will I buy more my original seize, I do not know yet. But very probably. Really alternatives do not exist unfortunately. Elnett is really one of the best sprays on the brand. yet I subtract a star for the high price and the scent. Stay 4 stars!

Due to its size it is suitable also well for the handbag to take away on the go.

The cream should moisturize the skin, conjure up soft and smooth skin, repair the skin(including panthenol) and creating a moisture barrier. In short: I am thrilled with this lotion!
I can recommend the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, as the hand cream moisturizes and cares for the skin. The hands feels soft and smooth. The hand cream leaves a gentle feeling on the skin.
Site easy to understand and use. All specification conflicts are highlighted when making a custom build are rectified before you complete the order. I tried getting hold of them on the phone on a couple of occasions - once to ask regarding a promotion of a free game, as there was no information when ordering that indicated that it was included so I assumed one would come given I had met the criteria for it, yet none turned up, and second occasion to ask about what extra care was taken with the 'Diamond Delivery' option, as again there were no details to this on the site and now I am unsure as to whether I received this service after paying for it. The PC itself is spot on - very happy indeed. It required minimal setting up on my part and am impressed with the price I got it for as I couldn't buy the parts cheaper myself.
It’s always a good idea to keep clean and smell nice. To quote Jonathan Ross at the Comedy Awards: ‘Geri Halliwell always puts a little something behind her ears to attract men - her ankles!’ That’s not how to win this weeks Product of the Week competition! But since when has that bothered me?
Since 911 the sales of hand and body wash gels, exfoliating potions and disinfectants and the likes have increased big time year-on-year. Some say the fear levels reached post September 11 and the War on Terror nonsense have changed our lifestyle in the west and we are generally more fearful of everything. 25% of the adult population is on some sort of antidepressants and we seemed to worry about everything. Governments love fear to control populations and that’s why some think 911 was exactly that. There is little proof it was done by some bloke in a cave. The international market for soaps and the like is now $24 billion. It’s a great example of how fear works in conjunction with marketing.
You do, of course, get bugs from poor hygiene. I watch a lot of country cricket and it’s alarming just how many pensioners smell of urine, wear the same clothes every match and generally give up washing. You expect that of men but even more alarming is the statistic that many women have given up on washing too and one-in-three don’t shower every day and 22% only having a proper wash once or twice a week!!! If you are fat and sweaty that’s lot of gunge build up. The hassle of washing the hair is also being abandoned with sales of dry shampoo up 41% since 2008. Most people choose a blast of deodorant in the morning and off to work. Rather interestingly its physical appearance, not ablutions, which matter most to women, mascara and perfume, applied 57% of the time in the bathroom compared to 36% of shampoo and body wash. Young women prefer to spend more time looking good than smelling fresh, it seems.
So why Lynx Deep Space shower gel? Why indeed? Why not! These body washes are clearly all the same and full of chemicals tested on little bunnies and just an example of what advertising is about. Get people to spend more on a product that’s the same as the others but brand it to make it appear different and fresh. Imperial Leather sounds regal and expensive and Lynx sound cool and sexy. Did you know that the more grand sounding tea brands sell better than regular sounding brands using the same tea leaves? People want to feel more than they are through buying stuff and the marketers are brilliant at exploiting that, be it washing their pits or drinking tea with the neighbors. The product makers are just as guilty at the blurb. And I quote –
Cool Metal Shower Gel brings the sensation of cool metal to your shower...
A cooling silver shower gel with fine quartz and zinc. Leaves you feeling ready for anything!
The gel concept is to make it easier to wash your hands and body while you have to keep a hand free on the bottle. If it was just a liquid it would just trickle off. You then apply liberally. The aroma is pleasant and you only need a short ejaculation. I’m not going to list the chemicals to pad this review out as I have been padding this out for the review up until this point. I always feel guilty if I write under 500 words for some reason.
The product costs about £2 top end per plastic bottle of 400ml but reasonably priced if you shop around. It’s not a poundshop brand though. Some of these brands like Beckham and Hugo Boss can really bump the price. You won’t be chased by beautiful women if you apply this though as the advert promises. But by applying it, at least you have a chance of a beautiful woman, unlike the 41% of men that don’t shower daily.
It us not easy to make light hair shine as much as darker hair because it does not have the same light reflecting properties. Nevertheless a girl can dream. So my light gingery brown hair regularly gets new shampoos or conditioners tested on it. Disappointment usually ensues. However with this Fructis product I have broken this trend.
The great news is that it cost me only £1.29. This was for a 250ml bottle. I tested it as I test all new shampoos on its own with no conditioner applied afterwards. I feel this way that I can truly judge what the shampoo is capable of doing for my hair.
As you can see from the product pic there is a sort of plastic ball on top of the flip cap you need to lift to dispense the shampoo. This makes it awkward to hold and I have no idea why this was sort to be a good design. This isn't a major problem though. The shampoo is pearly white colour and smells fruity. The packaging advertises that there is grapefruit extracts in it and I could smell this. I could also detect the lemon in it. Unfortunately the smell dies not linger on me after the product us rinsed out.
The makers say that it will make my hair less gangly. That wasn't the case. I cannot argue with the claim that it will make your hair smoother and shinier. This was supposed be after three uses. I could see a real difference after only one use. Very impressive. After 10 uses my hair is supposed to be twice as strong. I am on use number 7 so can't judge yet completely but I am breaking hairs a little less. I do recommend this shampoo very much for shine.
