      My 'Therapy'...!

      I do like to keep my lips moisturised and nourished and own a number of lip salve and lip balm products, using them on a daily basis. I do like to keep a small pot of "Lip Therapy" Vaseline on hand too, and own several varieties.

      I paid 89 pence for my small, 20g tin of Original Lip Therapy, purchasing from a local independent pharmacy but you can also purchase from good drugstores such as Superdrug and Boots.

      The packaging consists of a small, round tin made of metal. It can be tricky to open at times, as the lid needs to be prised off, but the huge plus point for the product in terms of its packaging is that it is entirely portable and convenient to slip into a handbag or pocket due to its neat size, making it convenient to take out and about.

      Of course, as the name would suggest, the item is entirely useful in caring for lips; the thick petroleum jelly works exceptionally well at smothering dry or cracked lips, protecting them from the harsh elements whilst moisturising and softening the lips' delicate layers. I do find it takes a mere moment to dip a fingertip into the tin and smother my lips with the yellowish-coloured jelly. Afterwards, the lips can feel quite greasy, so I do advise using the product sparingly to avoid a 'slicked' feeling.

      I find that the Vaseline Lip Therapy works really well at moisturising the lips; even after only one or two applications, dry or cracked skin appears more nourished and much smoother.

      One notable downside to using the Vaseline Lip Therapy is the fact it is significantly more greasy in its texture than most other lip balms or lip salves that I buy regularly. This means that it can make a bit of a mess during application, but I also find that it can be difficult to achieve a neat, 'defined' end result. For this reason, I do tend to favour lip balms and moisturisers that are supplied in a neat tube for use when out and about, as applying the Vaseline Lip Therapy when on the go is not as convenient or easy.

      It is, however, still an extremely worthwhile purchase, particularly during the harsh winter months when dry skin/lips are more susceptible to the elements.

      There are other uses for the product too, probably too many to mention in this review, but it is a handy little item to keep in the first aid kit at home, as a thin layer of Vaseline applied to the nose during a nasty cold will offer instant relief to red, inflamed skin.

      All in all, I do feel that the Vaseline Lip Therapy is an extremely worthwhile purchase, and as it is extremely convenient and affordable, I will continue to repurchase it for myself.

      On this basis, the product comes with my full recommendation, together with top marks in the rating score.

      Best Printing company

      I can recommand this company, I have very good experiences with all of services they can offer. I ordered (3672906) a set of 10000 business cards from Getprint.
      The upload and design process was very user friendly and I was able to easily create business cards which looked professional.
      The payment and delivery process was extremely swift and literally complete in a matter of minutes which is different to most websites which take a long time to design and use. As a customer of it never ceases to amaze me how they are able to offer such a good and high quality print services at the price. They were delivered on the date stated and I was surprised at how fast they came! Thank you Getprint I am extremely satisfied! I would definately recommend to all.

      Advantages

      • "Can be interesting"
      • "Takes no time"

      Disadvantages

      • "Can be boring"

      An easy to use survery site with the chance to get something back

      I signed up for YouGov about 2 months ago. I had read some user reviews on the site and was aware that it could take over a year to get to any payout threshold. I didn’t let this put me off and though that spending a few minutes every couple of day probably doesn’t deserve much more than that anyway.

      After signing up to YouGov I started receiving emails from them to complete surveys. Each survey lasts between 5-15 mins to complete (maybe less if you give it your full attention). Some days I have had 2 or 3 surveys to complete, other days none.

      After completing the surveys you get asked if you would like to store your points or enter a prize draw to win £5,000. Knowing that it would take over a year to earn £50 I always take the gamble and enter the prize draw. I have never won anything on this prize draw yet, but heres hoping that one day i will. I also spend £2 a week doing the national lottery so surely it must be my time to win something at some time - in it to win it and all that.

      Some of the surveys they ask you to complete are quite repetitive asking you about your political views - as if this may change day by day. Some of the surveys are interesting and some a pretty boring but none take that long.

      I like that you also occasionally get an email when the results are posted as its interesting to see what other people think.

      Advantages

      • "Clears spots in a flash"

      Disadvantages

      • "Slightly expensive for the amount you actually get "

      Be gone you horrible spot

      I have used a fair few Nip and Fab products and I buy most of mine from TK Maxx, where they tend to be a lot cheaper than they are in either Boots or Superdrug. Anyone who reads my reviews regularly will know that I often mention those horrible hurty spots I get at certain times of the month, primarily on my chin. They don't look particularly bad but boy, do they hurt.

      I used to use plain old TCP on my spots (as I have done this since I was in my teens) but then I discovered Nip and Fab Spot Fix. This comes in a tiny 15ml sized tube and it costs just a fraction under ten pounds. It has a long shelf life though and you only need to use the tiniest amount (unless you have a lot of spots).

      It is a clean gel and the tube has a nice pointed end so that you can actually direct it right at the core of the spot. I actually prefer to use a cotton wool tip as I find that I can get a better application this way.

      The gel itself is clear and I can personally detect no smell on it at all. Sometimes it hurts when I apply this gel, other times I can feel nothing at all, I think it just depends on whether or not the head is broken.

      This gel works fast and for me personally it has been a bit of a life saver as I usually find that I am about to develop a spot the night before I am going gout or have something important going on at work - possibly stress related?

      It clears the spot before it manages to erupt and it works for me within twelve hours, which is really impressive It also doesn't have the TCP smell, which can be really off putting.

      Overall, I am really happy wit this product and would definitely recommend it.

      Advantages

      • "Bit slow pace in the initial pages."

      When disability is under legal scrutiny

      THIS IS NOT MY FIRST NOVEL BY JODI PICOULT. Her books are always a delight to read, and this novel has the best plot gauging it from my previous readings such as of My Sister's Keeper, Perfect Match and Second Glance.

      House Rules is an engaging novel that allows readers to understand the emotional and psychological conditions that confront the characters which is very effective to get the interest of finishing the book (I think so...). Initially, for the first 100 pages of the book, I was tempted to temporary abandoned reading it. But then reaching the middle part of the book, my enthusiasm is building-up considering that I initially did some preliminary conclusions of what happened to Jess' disappearance/death; consequently I found out that, well almost 100 percent I got it right! At that point of my initial assessment of the events, I jumped to the conclusion that Picoult is not clever enough to sustain the suspense element of the story that I was able to predict the outcome of the investigation.

      On the other hand, Picoult is perfectly intelligent enough to motivate her readers to bring their own initial investigations and validated at the end of the story. The focal point of the story is whether a person suffering from Asperger's syndrome can be convicted of a crime or can be acquitted because the suspect is not capable to validate that his action is right or wrong? As the story progresses, I cant resist to do my own judgment from the evidence presented, and Picoult perfectly crafted the story in such a way that readers, like myself who does not have any background in forensic or criminal investigations will embark and hold on to find the truth! Unfortunately, Picoult did not explicitly described the outcome or the verdict but somehow readers will have their own interpretations...maybe acquittal or conviction.

      The criminal process somehow validates my on-going personal discovery about American justice system. Currently, I do regular readings on this subject matter as part of a personal assistance to my cousin's university degree in Criminal Justice and Picoult did well to convince me about the judicial proceedings without going to the real trials. Not only the technical aspect of coming-up with the conviction, but most importantly, Picoult provided an excellent argument to look at, not only the justice system but also the physical, financial, emotional and psychological impacts to the parties involved. Specifically, the author brings a new dimension of bringing these vulnerable offenders or those with disabilities into trial that could bring "reforms" or challenges to the current criminal system. With my final note, Picoult also wanted to confront us and stir our values and principles especially for those families or individuals who are facing the same dilemma of bringing their loved ones with disabilities that cause a long term effect to the carers which is the hardest thing to accept!

      HONESTLY, I was a little bit disappointed of the pacing of the story in the few pages of the book. But Picoult has her own way of presenting the characters which quite effective to fully understand each of the personality involved in the story. If you have already read some of her books, you understand what I am saying here. Normally I want variations of presenting the plot even with the same authors, and this is the reason why I tried to avoid much of Picoult's stories. But in fairness, I like finishing some of Picoult's novels is that she encouraged readers to interact with her, through her "Reading Guide" presented at the end of the book. Being a part-time academician, this kind of book presentation will encourage educators to bring her stories in the classrooms or any debate for that matter.

      Note: This is the revised version of my original review posted in my personal website.

      Advantages

      • "Marrying your best friend"

      Disadvantages

      • "Descion making"

      It is what you make it.

      Nearly 3 months ago now my husband and I got married. It still feels quite surreal and I’m finding it difficult to get used to my surname changing. My now husband proposed on the Brighton Wheel whilst we were having a long weekend away. I had never really thought about getting married and definitely didn’t have it all planned out in my head like some do. This made the process quite difficult in deciding what we wanted but fun.

      We had just over a year in planning our wedding. We decided to get married in May because we wanted some nice spring / summer weather, but of course you can never guarantee the weather! We got married on a Friday and all week it had been cloud and rainy. Our wedding day was better with a few clouds but also a little sunshine. However the weather is though I don’t think any bride can focus too much on this as it is absolutely out of anyone’s control.

      Our wedding day was everything that we wanted. We got married in a gorgeous little church that my husband grew up near. Our reception venue was a newly refurbished hotel which was lovely. We had originally booked to use a yacht club for our reception venue but we were let down by the caterers and so had to change.

      The funniest part of our day was all revolving around our Vicar. The Vicar that married us was retired and came out of retirement for our wedding ceremony. He was lovely and had a lot of quirks.

      Our vicar was late for our ceremony! I arrived at the church only about 5 minutes later after being determined that I would be on time. When I arrived the vicar was nowhere to be seen and nobody could get hold of him on the phone! I am quite relaxed about most things but I was even secretly worried at this point. When the vicar did arrive he went into the church and apparently apologised to the congregation saying that he had gone shopping! The vicar proceeded to give a hilarious sermon about cats and said our names wrong (which we had to correct him on) during the service. Luckily my husband and I took this well and we had a certain fondness for our vicar after meeting with him prior to the service.

      I think that ultimately you wedding should be what you want and it is the person that you are marrying and the people that you invite that depict the day. My husband and I both have really lovely memories of our wedding day and we now get to enjoy married life :)

      Fab Zoo; I wish I lived closer!

      I absolutely love Chester Zoo! I am gutted that I live so far away and can only visit every year or two because the place is amazing. When I was younger, we used to go on my birthday every year as we enjoyed it so much.

      The only major downside is the price which can seem a little steep, but when you see how many exciting things are on offer inside, really it isn't so bad.

      The range of animals is brilliant, with giraffes, lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos, and much, much more. I particularly love the monkey areas: the chimpanzees are source of great entertainment, as are the orang utans who like to sit with bags on their heads!

      The staff are always flitting about so if you have any questions or problems they can assist you. They can also give you further information on any of the animals if you want it.

      There are many places available to eat and drink. Whilst they are a little pricey, the produce is of high quality and there are plenty of options available for the whole family.

      There are lots of gift shops dotted around the zoo, with a wide range of toys, games and cuddly toys etc for you to choose from. Again, a little pricey, but part of the fun of the day.

      It is a large zoo and you may find it tiring to walk round the whole place, especially with young children, but there are plenty of seating areas if you need a break in between.

      Overall, I absolutely love Chester Zoo, it's great fun and a great family orientated place to see lots of great animals, I would recommend this to anyone!

      Advantages

      • "Free parking "
      • "Excellent range of products"
      • "Very cheap"

      Disadvantages

      There's no need to shop elsewhere!!!

      Since my husband has been made redundant, I now shop around very often to find the best deals which I why I now shop at all the supermarket no matter how far they are. I recently did a review on Aldi and now I will be doing a review on Lidl.

      ****The store itself****

      The store itself was just like Aldi, as it was nicely organised. However unlike Aldi, I only had a choice between a basket and large trolley so I decided to take the larger trolley as I struggle carrying heavy loads by hand. The store itself had lots of parking and it’s free for 3 hours so there was no need for me to rush my shopping.

      ****The products/prices****

      Like Aldi, the prices were really cheap but unlike Aldi, it didn’t have the super 6 but the prices were still much cheaper than the other supermarkets! Also, Lidl sells quite a few branded products whereas Aldi didn’t. I particularly like the chocolate aisle which had a very wide variety of chocolate which much cheaper prices as I found lots of chocolates at below 50p and these won’t just plain chocolate; there were hazelnut chocolate, crunchy chocolate etc…

      Their bakery section was also excellent as they had many good products at excellent prices such as burger bun which were 5 for 50p, French baguettes which were 2 for £1, a ciabatta or tiger loaf for just 75p. The pastry section was also to die for as they sold double chocolate chip cookie at 4 for £1, almond croissants at 3 for £1 etc…

      ****The good points****

      I’ve never bought any products which I’ve found disgusting from Lidl as they are all high quality products which taste excellent!

      ****The bad points****

      Like Aldi, the tills were exactly the same design so there is no area to pack your bags however at the end of the store they were shelves so you can pack your bags using them. Also, we have to pay for bags but since I shopped with them beforehand, I knew I would need to bring bags anyway.

      ****Conclusion****

      I would 100% definitely recommend Lidl as they have a large range of products with excellent prices!

      Advantages

      • free!
      • "easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "junk mail"

      Great email provider!

      Hotmail is a great free email server, which allows everyone to have an email account. I have been using Hotmail for years now, and never have any problems with the site really. Hotmail was founded in 1996 as Hotmail by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith and was initially launched in 2003.

      I tend to use a number of different email accounts, to try and battle spam which i know many of us have trouble with, especially when signing up for various sites. Hotmail, in my opinion does not have a brilliant junk filter, which is a small problem. I do a lot of work online, which means a lot junk, and some of it does tend to get through to my normal inbox instead of the junk mail folder which can become a little annoying, but you can choose to send certain emails to the junk folder, which sometimes helps the problem.

      Hotmail is constantly changing its look, which some versions i have found to be a little harder to use than others, but the most recent change to the site has been for the best. They have changed the complete layout of the site and added various tabs to make life that little bit easier. Instead of the list feature that Hotmail used to have, they have now added small tabs on the side to make the site navigation much easier, and the ability to access your folders improved.

      With Hotmail, you can create different folders for different emails which is very helpful. I have set up folders for everything, as i get hundreds of emails and it simply helps me to manage them. It is especially useful when you get financial emails, or even better when you get lots of emails from one person, you just store them in a single folder.

      I would recommend Hotmail to anyone. It is completely free to use, so anyone can have an account, and they will never ask you for banking information. It is a pleasant site to use!

      Disadvantages

      • none

      Excellent site, great tips and advice

      money saving expert was opened in 2003 by financial journalist Marin Lewis. i first started using the site around 2009, and since then has become a site that I read almost every day! For those who haven't used the money saving site, it is a financial advice site, that gives advice and tips on everything from mortgage rates to credit cards, and where to find the best deals and freebies for everything!

      I originally started to use the site because I as looking for a good bank account, so I did what most people do and headed on over to google, when I stumbled across this site. The information that I found was different to most sites, and offered an unbiased review on a whole range of bank accounts, listing the good and bad about each. I felt like the decision was in my hands, which most websites do not do and i ended up with a really good deal!

      I search the site constantly now to make sure I am on the best deal for everything, including utilities, credit cards, savings and more! I have just started to use the "Make money" part of the site, which lists a lot of different ways that people can make money on the internet and at home, some of which i use regularly now. All sites and tips provided have been verified and tried out, so it is really reassuring to know that.

      As well as the hints an tips offered, it also has a huge forum, which lets you have your opinion on anything. With thousands of threads and posts, you can participate in discussions and read other forum members views on things, which the site calls "Forumites", which is a great name!

      Overall, I would suggest everyone to take a look at this site, it helps out day to day life, and you could save yourself a fortune in the long run too! You can also sign up to the weekly email, which is always full of brilliant hints and tips for you to use, which i take advantage of all the time! This site has actually become like my bible its that good!

      Advantages

      • "on offer with other games in argos"
      • "good game of skill"

      Disadvantages

      • "not as strong as it used to be"
      • "marbles get stuck in the main tube"
      • "takes longer to set up than it does play"
      • "Colours aren't as bright as they used to be"
      • "plastic thin/flimsy"

      It takes longer to set up this game than it does to play it!

      ABOUT THE GAME: Ker Plunk is a game that has been around since 1967 and was first marketed by the Ideal Toy Company. I knew it had been around for quite a while as I remember having this game as a child. Many of you are probably very familiar with this game and may also have played it at some point in your life. Since the game was first launched it has had many make-overs, which has changed the look of the game very slightly to make it look more modern and attractive to children. The game contains various different pieces which need to be slotted and clipped together in order to be able to actually play the game. This game is now made by Hasbro who make a huge range of children’s games. This game is described as a nerve-racking game that keeps you on the edge of your seat and tests your skill and judgement. If you pick the wrong stick and all the marbles fall down then the game is over and you lose. This game has been described as classic which is great for the whole family to keep you entertained for hours.

      PRICE/AVAILABILITY: The game can be purchased from Argos for £14.99 and other places such as Amazon.

      SETTING UP THE GAME: In the box there are some instructions, marbles and some plastic sticks in the box as well. To set up the game you need to clip all the parts together. The top part of the game which will holds the marbles look the same and once clipped together there should be a large hole in the top and the bottom. This also has lots of little holes around it which later enables you to put the sticks through them. The two parts which make up the tube also slot together easily and this fits into the base and then the top part goes securely on top. I have to admit that compared to the Ker-Plunk version I had when I was a child I was very surprised at how flimsy the plastic was and the colours were no-where near as bright as they were in my version of the game. The next job is to put all the coloured sticks through the holes in the top so that they go into one side and out the other. This is easy to do but does take a few good minutes doing this. The sticks can go in one side and straight out the other side or you can put them in at an angle. My nephew enjoys putting the sticks in ready to play the game. Once all the sticks are in place you then need to carefully put the marbles into the top. These should balance on the sticks, but if any do fall out straight away we normally just pop them back in the top again ready to play.

      PLAYING THE GAME: To play the game you need to gently turn the tube/middle part of the game so that the hole at the bottom faces you and then that player must carefully remove a stick from the top. This can be a little stiff to move so I have to help my younger nephew out with this, otherwise he tends to knock it over. Once the player has touched a stick they have to take that particular one and can't change their mind. Some of the sticks are easy to remove than others. My older nephew seemed to do quite a good job at removing sticks that ensured that no marbles dropped down. Once they have had their go, it's then the next person's turn. They have to repeat the process by turning the tube part of the game and removing a stick. You have to turn the tube as it means that it any marbles fall out they will go into your section rather than anyone else's. Keep taking it in turns removing the straws until there are no more marbles left in the top. The winner is the person at the end of the game with the least amount of marbles. We found that the marbles kept getting stuck at the bottom of the tube when they were falling down which was rather annoying. With this game it can last just a few minutes or longer, depending on what sticks the players take out. If you happen to move a stick which is supporting a lot of the marbles and they all drop than they game can be over so quickly. The game is played exactly the same way as it was when I had the game, although it just didn't seem as fun to me as it was when I had it, but maybe that's because I'm no longer a child.

      • "Thick and cakey"
      • Streaky

      Stay away from this!

      I bought this product last summer after swatching it at the drugstore and discovering that it had amazing coverage. I took it with me on holiday and tried to apply it on the plane, as when you arrive at the US for the first time, you get your picture taken. But, to my surprise, it was awful. I had the hardest time blending it in. Everytime I looked in the little mirror it looked even more streaky and patchy and after some time of rubbing it in, it just balled up, as it had set. When I got home, I tried applying it with a damp sponge and a brush and I got the same results. I'd say you're better off getting a foundation instead, after all, they have about the same coverage and this "bb cream", that's supposed to be good for you, contains alcohol, a skin irritant!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A simple, effective face mask if you're on a budget!

      My skin is extremely oily and dry around my t-zone and acne prone. I thought I would put this information in first as it may help you decide whether this product is right for you.

      I picked this up because the price was great and I was recommended it by a friend. For £2.99 you get a small 50ml bottle which doesn't seem like a lot, but a little goes a long way and I would say you could get around 30 uses out of this bottle which isn't bad at all.

      The Tea Tree and Witch Hazel face mask contains anti-bacterial Tea Tree Oil and skin calming Witch Hazel. These ingredients put into a face mask help to keep your skin clear and healthy by grabbing dirt and lifting it out of your pores, removing blackheads and tightening pores to prevent future breakouts.

      To use the face mask is simple. Apply a 1mm layer over a dry face and make sure you avoid the eye area. After 10-15 minutes the mask will be dry and you can then peel the mask from your face.

      My overall impression of this face mask is very good. The mask comes in a clear plastic bottle with a simple design. There is a flip top lid and to dispense the product you simply give the bottle a squeeze.

      The texture is very gloopy and thick, which can make the mask a little difficult to work with. The mask is a clear gel and has a fresh, clean scent which isn't too strong.

      I usually use a small tablespoon amount and this covers my whole face. Of course if you like, you can use less, but I find a tablespoon feels best on my skin and isn't too thin of a mask.

      For the first few minutes while on your skin, the mask feels very wet, heavy and sticky. I'd recommend tying your hair back because it will stick to your face and you will end up with very knotty and greasy feeling hair. I'd also recommend avoiding the eyebrow area as the mask will pull off your eyebrows if you peel it away from there. Sadly, I learned this the hard way.

      After around 5 minutes the mask begins to feel tight on my face and I can feel the product sinking into my skin and drying. I usually will leave the mask on for 20 minutes because by that stage, it is 100% dry and ready to peel off.

      I love peeling the mask off and I can honestly say that I can feel my skin being cleaned and can feel the dirt being pulled away. The mask is very easy to remove and usually comes off all in one. I have very sensitive skin and I find that there is no irritation at all while the mask is on my face and when the mask is being peeled away. I find it very soothing and calming.

      I have a lot of dry skin around my nose and this makes a huge difference in removing it. I'm usually left flakeless after using the mask and that is probably my favourite thing about it as it is a safe way of removing dry skin without doing damage to your skin. My skin is very red, but after the mask has come off my face looks a lot calmer and the redness isn't too bad, my skin has a nice glow to it. Sadly the results don't last too long, after a few hours my red face comes back and 1-2 days later my dry skin shows up. But the mask is still a very nice treat to have nontheless.

      I find that the mask doesn't make much difference when it comes to my oily face and my skin is still breaking out all the time. But I can highly recommend it for removing dry skin and giving your skin a boost once a week.

      I will buy another bottle when I run out because I do enjoy using it. I know there are probably much better face mask on the shelves, but for now this affordable one keeps me satisfied and makes a great pampering treat.
