      Advantages

      • "Hair looks frizz-free and shiny"
      • "Durability makes it worth the price"
      • "Provides lasting style"
      • "Tames any type of hair"

      Disadvantages

      • Expensive
      • "Burns your hait quickly"
      • "No heat adjusting settings"

      A miracle worker for thick hair but burning hell for thin hair

      Being the very-concerned-with-her-hair child that I was back in the day, I got this straightener when I was 11. I was told that if I used it regularly it would only last a couple of years. Wrong. It's been eight years since that, I've used it almost every single day on my bangs and it looks like I just took them out of its fancy packaging. And believe me, I was not a careful teenager -it's been dropped, stomped on, put under water... and the list goes on. I think that speaks for its durability.

      When it comes to its performance, I can't say I'm 100% pleased. Let me explain this. It straightens hair like no other: I've used it even on friends who have curly hair and it leaves it smooth and frizz-free, moreover, it last perfectly for about 5 days. It's also really nice that its edges are curved, as that -just like GHD claims- allows you to create really pretty loose curls or crimped waves, depending on how you use it. You basically need no other devices to take care of your hair's needs.

      However, it doesn't have any means of adjusting how much heat you're using. This is pretty bad, considering this goes up to about 210 ⁿC and hairdressers recommend using at the most 180 ⁿC, and that's for thick hair. Apart from that, the fact that they're made of ceramic is supposed to make heat less harsh on your hair but it really doesn't. The burnt hair I sported all throught my teenage years (and bear in mind, I only heatstyled it once a week) can vouch for that. I know what you're thinking. Don't all straighteners eventually burn your hair? Well, probably. But does this one do it faster? Absolutely.

      Overall, I would say that if you have really thick hair that doesn't hold the shape easily and ir's pretty relisient to heat, this will get the job done. However, if you have fine hair that doesn't go back to its original texture once you heatstyle it, you'd be better off getting somethinf that has heat adjusting settings.

      Advantages

      • "fantastic soundtrack"
      • "Phillip Glenister"
      • "John Simm"
      • "both series in 1 box set"

      Disadvantages

      • none

      Absolutely amazing!

      I missed Life on Mars when it was first televised so when I had the opportunity to purchase this box set it was completely new for me. The box set is great value for money.From the first episode I was completely hooked. It is a really clever series so much so that you even start to question in your head whether David Bowies iconic Life on Mars song was somehow written for the series as it fits so perfectly.
      John Simm plays Sam Tyler a modern day policeman who has a car accident and ends up in 1973. Queue Phillip Glenister's brash Gene Hunt who is so far removed from Tylers modern day policing, that rifts between the two frequently surface. Tyler spends the majority of the series trying to find a way back to the modern day, while the viewers spend most of it just trying to work out exactly where he is!
      The 70s is well and truly the basis for this, the series taking its influences from z cars and the professionals. The opening titles are reminiscent of this and give it a real 70s feel. Everything is spot on and for those growing up in the 70s it genuinely is a blast from the past. You find yourself saying "wow I remember those!" As for the soundtrack it is amazing.
      There are 2 series in this box set with each series containing 8 episodes spread over 4 dvds and wow are the episodes intriguing!
      I heartily recommend this box set and its follow up ashes to ashes they are both absolutely amazing!

      Advantages

      • None

      Disadvantages

      • "rubbish product"
      • "Dire service"

      A masterclass in ineptitude and diabolical service.

      Ordered the Madrid TV Chair and footstool. It arrived 2 weeks later with a part missing. Customer services cheerfully informed me that they would send the part out in "ten to fourteen days". It did take nearly that too and the clowns sent another chair instead of the part. They told me to take the part I needed and they would pick up the rest. Chair full of defects, holes in wrong place, holes not drilled right through, staples crossing boltholes so you cant get a bolt in. Couldn't make a good one from both boxes so rang them and told them to pick them up and I wanted a refund. No apology or argument they just didn't care. Both chairs picked up a few days later. Went away and when I came back no refund had been issued.
      Now the best bit.
      The SAME driver turned up ten days later for the chairs and he even remembered me !
      Phoned customer clowns I mean services and at last the girl I spoke to apologized and issued a refund which has reached my account.
      In summary almost entertainingly inept but probably not what you want in a company.

      Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant!

      I absolutely adore this cd. It has been in my collection for a long time and has all the Crowded House hits in one cosy cd. Theres something about listening to this band that always puts me in a good mood and makes me think of summer. The highlights are classics like 'weather with you' and 'distant sun' but there isnt a bad song in the collection. Therefore I find it perfect for long car journeys as I can happily leave it to play in its entirity as every song is as good as the last.My guilty secret is playing this cd in the car with the volume up and me singing along at the top of my voice. A truly great band that show newcomers exactly how it should be done! There is a song for every mood here from the rockier sounds of 'locked out' to the chilled out musings of 'fall at your feet' and the anthemic 'better be home soon' which is by far my favourite song of the album. Each song brings back so many memories. If you have never listened to crowded house this cd is definatly the purchase you need to make as it covers all the major ground,and demonstrates why the band had such a big fan base. On the other hand if you are already a crowded house fan then you wont need to read this review because this cd would have been a major part of your collection for a long time!

      Advantages

      • None

      Disadvantages

      • "Too orange"
      • " patchy"
      • "Bad coverage"

      Too patchy and too orange!

      This was my first BB cream I have tried and it was quite a disappointment for me personally. I wanted an all in one foundation product to save me time in the morning and this seemed to have it all with its 9 in 1 super makeup claim. When I first applied it, it was difficult to blend and looked a little orange but still went with it and gave it a chance (I am quite pale and picked the lightest shade they had) in certain lights it looked ok but as the day went on it would rub off really easily and leave big pale patches on my face. I was unaware of this at first until my boyfriend pointed it out to me, quite embarrassing!
      I have literally tried everything to make this make up work for my skin, for example mixing it with half of another foundation, or even half moisturizer to get rid of the weird patchy nature this product has, but even that failed! I also attempted using brushes and sponges to apply it in case I wasn't putting it on right.
      I'm not sure how it would hold up to be honest as an SPF moisturizer as it keeps sloughing off your face as the day goes on. In the end I went back to boots and got a refund because I was so disheartened.
      The packaging of the BB cream looks very presentable and the initial look of the foundation when you squeeze it of the bottle looks promising, although the texture is almost gel like. I would give this one a miss and try something else!

      Advantages

      • "easy to use"
      • "nice packaging"
      • "good price"

      Disadvantages

      • "can't get a fine line once the initial point is gone"

      Great eyeliners

      Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner has a creamy formula to glide on smoothly for precision lining that won't drag or smudge and wears for up to 12 hours. It's priced at £6 but can usually be picked up on a special offer making it cheaper.


      My thoughts
      I like the packaging of these eyeliners, they look nice and sleek and they're easy to use due to the twist up mechanism which means you don't have to sharpen the eyeliner. The only slight issue is that the lid goes on very tightly and can sometimes be a bit difficult to remove!

      I've had glimmersticks in several different colour over the years and they're all been great. The one I have at the moment is Emerald, which as you would expect is a green colour, although I'd say it's actually more towards teal than emerald.
      The liner has a soft, smooth texture that does indeed glide on smoothly. It is easy yo apply,but I wouldn't say it's a very versatile liner as once the initial point has gone from it you are unable to get a very thin line with it. However, I can easily create a nice smooth line with it, from medium to thicker, and it looks really good.

      The colour isn't too bright or bold so it's great if you want a softer, more subtle look, but if you're careful you can also build it up to a much bolder colour. The creamy formula does mean that it never feels like it's drag or catching on the skin, so you are able to apply it evenly for a nice professional look.
      I find these liners last really well and I've never had them smudge or run. They stay looking perfect all day or night, but they are easy to remove come the end of the night.


      Recommended?
      Yes, I would definitely recommend the glimmersticks eyeliners, they're fantastic, they're available in loads of different colours so everyone should be able to find one to suit them.

      Advantages

      • "detailed and is movable"

      Disadvantages

      • "limited sayings"
      • "not many facts "
      • "have to keep pressing button"

      Dinosaur Train Interaction Ned Dinosaur Figure.....Limited Sayings.

      ***** Ned *****

      Made by Tomy and recommended for ages 3 years plus, Ned is an interactive roar 'n' react Brachiosaurus, as he is interactive he can interact with other dinosaurs from this set and with kids by roaring. Ned is a good size for a kids toy, at 13in long and 7.5in high. He is yellow on top with orange underneath, when you run your hand across his body you can feel a bumpy texture to give the impression of scales. Ned actually looks very friendly, under his belly you will see a speaker, battery compartment and the on/off switch. Ned is made from plastic with no small parts to choke on, while being made from plastic Ned still has 4 fully moving limbs, his legs move backwards and forth and when you push his head down he will start to talk.

      ***** Interactive *****

      As well as being a moving Dinosaur, Ned is also fitted with 4 sensor points, and these are:

      * Push his neck for sounds
      * Touch his mouth to hear chomping actions
      * Press the button on his back to hear him talk
      * Move him up & down to hear stomping sounds

      Ned has sayings when the button is pressed, these include:

      * 'Hi, I'n Ned', press any of my dinosaur train friend's to hear us talk'
      * 'Everybody ready?'
      * 'Laugh'
      * 'I'm a Brachiosaurus'

      A couple of small facts that Ned has about himself are:

      * 'I weigh 37 tons some days'
      * 'It's kind of tough to hide a Brachiosaurus'

      If you place Ned infront of anyother Dinosaur, Ned will start a conversation by saying 'I'm a brachiosaurus' and Tank will then say 'I'm a Triceratops'. The sensor is placed on the front of their body, so the dinosaur's need to be facing each other and within 10 feet of eachother for the sensor system to work. To continue listening to Ned and Tank talking to eachother you need to press the button on his back again where he will say something else, for example 'Were gona ride the Dinosaur Train', as soon as Tank hear's this he will say it at the same time as Ned.

      ***** Our Thoughts *****

      Ned is very impressive to look at, and feels very durable, which for me is one of the most important aspects when buying a toy as my boy's are very heavy handed, they do look after their toys but they normally make them fight etc which means getting bashed around. Ned has been into many battles with his other Dinosaur Train friend's that we own and still looks/works like new. My only negatives with Ned is that you have to keep pressing the button for him to carry on talking. His facts about himself are also very limited, and sayings is general is very limited. I would have liked Ned to be slightly more educational.

      Ned retails for around 20.00 but is on sale for 15.00.

      A Salon quality product at a great price.

      This is an amazing hair product if you want value for your money. This salon quality product smells lovely, and the scent stays on the hair for a good day. The consistency of this product is quite watery in some respects, but I think that's what makes it work so well, because it makes it more pliable when applying it to your hair and you get a good even coverage. I use it after washing my hair when its still damp and then a couple of drops again once my hair has completely dried, this seems to lock in the maximum amount of moisture. It also contains real oils which is always a must for when I look for hair oils now, as this is what replenishes the moisture levels back into your frazzled locks. When using this for the first time (my hairdresser introduced me to it) I noticed an instant change in the feel of my hair, it became softer, sleeker and had a lovely luminescent shine with out weighing it down and making it feel greasy.
      Now after consistently using this product for a few months my hair seems to have completely recovered from all the bleaching and dying processes that I have put it through. I have tried other hair oils before such as Organix and Moroccan Oil but they don't really have that edge that Mythic Oil does. I get My Mythic Oil off Amazon as its good value at around £13 (or even cheaper on ebay), and not to mention a little goes a long way, so it's cost effective even still. I'm still on my first bottle and used only about half. Give it a try if you've got frazzled hair!

      A fantastic box set for a fabulous series!

      Arriving late to the life on mars and ashes to ashes experience. I have bought both this box set and the life on mars box set. They were fantastic value for money and I can honestly say that ashes to ashes is a must have for any 80s fan. Each series has 8 episodes spread over 4 dvds. I got through all the dvds in this box set in record time as they were very addictive watching. For me the bonus of watching it all in one go was not having to wait too long to see the resolution to the end of season cliffhanger.
      The brilliant Gene Hunt (Phillip Glenister) is on fine form in this series and the soundtrack is fabulous. What's more we finally get a resolution to exactly what this and life on mars have all been about and its really cleverly done! The scriptwriters did a brilliant job balancing humour, with gritty cop drama and a twisted mysterious plot, and I will definately be rewatching it to see where the clues were as the series went along. The only downside for me was the scary david bowie clown (not good as I have a bit of a clown phobia) but I loved the 80s feel to the dvd menu with teletext news headlines and dodgy computer graphics and I completely fell for the gene and alex will they or wont they chemistry. I heartily recommend this to anyone and I seriously believe this is the best purchase I have made this year.

      A nice little addition to our range

      (Please excuse the photo, this review is actually of a childrens tortoise toy)

      I have just had two weeks off from work and as we haven’t really been away, we went on lots of day trips, one of the places we visited was Twycross Zoo (which I would really recommend). My daughter loves animals and has lots of Schleich products already so as a treat, we decided to pick a few more up, this being the first one she picked.



      I actually picked mine up from a department store (not at the Zoo) a few days after our visit and paid just over 3pounds. What I like about the range is that the price is consistent from shop to shop so you pretty much know that the item isn’t going to be cheaper elsewhere (obviously unless there is a promotion on).



      The range is widely available in places such as Mothercare, ELC, Toys R Us, The Entertainer and a lot of department stores sell these too. I pick a lot of mine up from Amazon.




      Whilst at the zoo, there was a race between the tortoises (as you can imagine, this took quite a while) and Lauren was fascinated by them and we spent a good half and hour watching the race, touching the shell and asking the zoo keeper questions.



      We opted for the baby tortoise and this measures 5cm x 3.5cm x 2.5cm so is one of the smaller animals that we have but it is a nice size for Lauren to play with and is realistic when compared to the ‘mummy’ giant tortoise we have. All the Schleich animals are hand painted and the attention to detail is always excellent, they have really captured the different shades along with shell and legs.



      I am not quite sure why my daughter liked the tortoises so much as out of all the animals, they seems to do the least however since we visited the zoo, she has really took a liking to them and constantly draws them. As soon as we got home from the zoo, we did visit the Schleich website where you can learn interesting facts about the animals. It always amazes me that from one read, Lauren seems to memorise the facts (I wish her spellings from school would sink in so easily).



      During play, Laurens imagination goes into overdrive, she incorporates this into play with a lot of other toys such as her Sylvanians, where the figures have rides on the tortoises back, she relives the race (which is quite funny to watch) and her favourite one now is to play zoo’s.





      I would definitely recommend this tortoise and it gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.

      I'm gaining access to peoples profiles on DooYoo and having issues. DooYoo won't reply.

      Hello

      I'm really sorry for putting this here, but I'm having issues with DooYoo and I've messaged them on Twitter for the last couple of days but I've just been ignored.

      I'm gaining access to random profiles. I've come onto this website for the last few days and been logged into random peoples accounts where I'm able to gain access to all of their private information, I could even be cashing out if I'd like to ( I wouldn't do that by the way, just an example of what is happening! ) I can edit their reviews and change their profile pictures because the options are all available to me. I've told DooYoo this on Twitter but they haven't bothered to message me back even though they've been online. This is a SERIOUS issue and very worrying and I'm frustrated that I'm being ignored.

      I can't contact DooYoo by email, as whenever I try to put in my details in the contact section I'm being told my email address is invalid and it will not let me send.

      I'm having major issues with the website. I can't click onto other peoples profiles, I can't comment or rate other peoples reviews as it tells me I need to log in even though I already am.

      Please could somebody pass this message onto DooYoo and ask them to contact me at beautyadoration@live.com

      Again, I'm really sorry for shoving this here but I'm appaled that I haven't received a reply from their Twitter page when such a serious issue ( gaining access to DooYooers accounts ) is happening.

      Is anybody else having issues or is it just me? I've tried using different browsers but I'm not having any change.

      Disastrous Discipline, Silly Syllabus and Freaking Fees!

      I am currently an Undergraduate student studying Psychology and I am just about to progress into my third and final year of study. I am by no means a professional when it comes to the education system, however the fact that I am fresh out of school and college I feel I can raise a few current issues and express my recommendations.

      High school is definitely a very difficult 5 years, teenagers often struggle to fit in with crowds and obviously experiencing puberty at the same time makes high school a challenging process. There are certainly groups formed in high school and there is a clear split between those who are regarded as the ‘popular kids’ and those who are the ‘nerds/geeks’. I feel that how one perceives oneself influences their learning. Through experience, during years 7/8 and 9 abuse was often hurled at those who over achieved and were clearly bright pupils and they were ‘put down’ for their efforts. This can sometimes lead a bright pupil down the wrong path in a desperate bid to want to fit in and feel cool. I think in order to improve the education system we need to focus on motivating students to want to work hard so they can achieve their full potential, from a young age we need to show them that being smart is cool, it is desirable and it is beneficial in the future. Perhaps there should be regular programs, motivation speakers or ex pupils who come in and talk to the children and show them that goals and dreams are achievable to those who work hard.

      In every school there are ‘challenging children’ those who like to be a bit of a nuisance in classes and disrupt other childrens learning. When I was at school we had a credit system and we all had to earn credits so we could attend the end of year trip. The challenging children seemed to gain more credits whereas the well behaved children struggled, teachers tended to use the whole ‘If you are good in todays lesson I will give you 3 credits’ negotiation with the challenging children. This could be considered as unfair and frustrating, I think those who work hard should be recognised and should be rewarded, perhaps by awarding them a small gift or organizing a trip specifically for them. This would trigger the snowball effect, so hard workers would realize they are being rewarded for their efforts and would continue to work hard so they keep gaining awards. Challenging children may observe this and change their behaviour; they would then imitate and copy the hard workers so they too can enjoy the awards. Overall, I think this could improve the education system, as children would be more willing to learn in order to achieve high grades, which subsequently allows them to take part in fun activities/trips. I understand funding trips can be expensive but the award doesn’t have to be so extreme, kids love non-uniform days and this could be a perfect reward.

      Back when I was at school the challenging children were sent to an isolated room if they misbehaved, I personally do not think this is beneficial. Some children see this as being ‘cool’ as other peers tend to praise them for being sent to isolation, they are considered rebellious and that it is a good thing. In isolation there tended to be a few other students there and although they had to sit in silence it wasn’t really considered as punishment as some children preferred to sit in a room with people like themselves rather than sitting in class. I think perhaps the discipline should be changed, perhaps giving children detentions on weekends would stop them misbehaving as they would see this as more of a punishment.

      Perhaps we should focus on why children mis-behave? I personally think children find school boring and believe it wont help them in the future. Some children think ‘how is learning about the Ancient Egyptians going to benefit my future?’ or ‘Why would I even need algebra when I grow older’. They have a point, perhaps learning about relevant things that are actually going to help you in life will be beneficial, like buying a house, dealing with bills and rent, understanding electronics etc. Having said that, I do think learning different types of subjects activates different areas of your brain; perhaps algebra increases your problem solving ability? Learning about Ancient Egyptians improves your imagination and can be used as an inspiration for a future idea. Children need to be taught that there is more to what meets the eye and you can use what you learn to your advantage and apply it to a different scenario.

      And finally, a current problem I am dealing with is tuition fees, the £9000 fee is horrendous! Although it does filter out those who don't care about education I do not think it is worth the 9 grand, I have personally had very poor lecturers who just read of the slides, I feel like some lectures are a waste of money, also because there are so many students, lecturers refuse to look over essays and give feedback as they can’t physically give feedback to all 300 students. Therefore your first draft of your essay is pretty much your last draft too which isn’t great. I think money should be put into universities especially for hiring more lecturers so we can eliminate this problem, this will enable students to take on feedback and improve their marks and therefore increase the number of students graduating with a 2:1 or first - overall increasing job prospects.

      Without even knowing it everyone does plan ahead, the current increase in fees may demotivate school students; they may feel there is no point in studying as they wouldn’t be able to afford the fees for University. I think fees should be cut down or I think money should be invested back into the education system, training should be given to teachers, train them to be the best they can possibly be, train them to be motivating and passionate so children don’t get bored and so they children actually want to be at school.

      I'm a regular user of dry shampoo and, even though it's a miracle product for lazy people, it builds up residue on your scalp like nobody's business. So, when I saw that this clarifying shampoo was on sale, I didn't hesitate to pick it up
      After using it for the first time, I noticed my hair was straight out gross. It wasn't dirty, but it felt rough and kind of sticky. Granted there was no residue in my hair, but it also left it feeling like straw.
      I should also mention that I have color treated hair, and this stripped my magenta red to a rusty orange. Before you even think it, I'm not stupid, I know you're not supposed to use clarifying shampoos on dyed hair, but since then, I've tried other clarifying shampoos and, apart from not stripping my hair half as much, they don't leave make gross either. I suppose that maybe this product could be ok for really oily hair though (although, you know, the more you strip your hair, the more oil your scalp will produce, but that's up to you)
      If you're really on a budget and you seriously need this, I'd warn you not to use it too often (once a month is actually more than enough), I can only imagine what using this little piece of cosmetic garbage repeatedly would do to your hair over time. But really, for a dirt cheap, super cleansing shampoo, just get one that's for dandruff, they work the same and they leave your scalp feeling amazing.

      If i wanted dry hair ...

      Now in life there are many things to do and washing our hair is one of them. For me i need a very good shampoo as i often leave oil or conditioner in my hair over night. Years of going from black to blonde to dark brown to platinum has ruined my hair, so im unable to just wash my hair i need to leave some sort of condtioner on it overnight, poor me :(. Also i like my hair to smell yummy, as my ex partner once said to me you need to wash you hair, to which i replied why what does it smell like and he said hair lol.

      I was in my local pound shop dancing around ... well i was walking i dont want to look mad! When i saw this, i had heard alot about this brand and knew it was cheap anyway so i thought go on girl. I decided on the strawberry version, as fruity smells are very appealing to me. Its always nice to have a fruit salad on your head! So i strutted to the counter and bought it along with the condtioner. There are also many other flavours like blueberry, apple, raspberry and so on and there all for different hair types. But to be honest i dont pay attention to what hair type its for as i never find it makes much of a difference, i just go on smell.

      Smell : Now this one is a bit funny because when i smelt it in the bottle it was nice sort of like those stawberry sweets you can buy, but when i used it in my hair, it was sooooo sickly sweet. Now real strawberries have a subtle sweetness, but this ... oh lordy me, i dont know what kind of strawberries they were basing it on. The conditioner also smells exactly the same. However it does not deeply fragrance your hair afterwards which is good as it would be very unpleasant and would make me dizzy if it was super strong all day. It isent like my beloved herbal essences.

      Use : Well its rather easy to use its a rather thick sort of cream, but i need to use loads, so really it does not even work out that cost effective because you need to use so much and my hair is only shoulder length. It does get rid of all the gunk in your hair though and leave it squeaky clean but it also leaves my hair really dry. For a shampoo and conditioner range thats for dry and damaged hair it should be making my hair more supple but it drys it out more. So the soy milk proteins and pro vitamin b5 in it dont seem to do very much!

      Avaliable : Well everywhere ive seen it in morrisons, superdrug, pound shops and so on and its always £1 or 3 for £2, so if you were to try it out then you wouldent be losing alot of money. You could also mix and match flavours to see what suited you the most.

      Pros :

      Smell if you like to smell crazy sweet
      Cleanses very well
      Very cheap and lots of different scents

      Cons :

      Smell makes me wanna be sick and makes me dizzy
      Needs alot of product to work
      Drys my hair

      Overall : Yes it does cleanse hair thoroughly and yes it is very cheap but it does not cut it. It states on the back of the bottle it has most of the same ingredients as more expensive brands etc, which it made do, but they dont seem to have got the formulation quite right. I like to swish my hair around .... well my extensions .... well the women whose hair it was, that has now become mine and be able to smell a lovely scent but its too sickly sweet and thats very off putting, it also does not leave any noticable changes to your hair, my hair doesent even look shiny after use. Plus even after leaving olive oil in my hair overnight, the next day my hair was still dry after washing and thats really not a good thing. So alberto i think you need to rethink your formulas, you may cleanse, but you dry out my hair and i need alot of product for you too work! If i wanted my hair to be dry then i would use soap. Naughty shampoo!!!
