WHAT IS IT?
These are sachets of powder that are made by Beechams. You mix them with hot water and they are honey and lemon flavoured to help when you have got a cold.
WHY DID I BUY THEM?
Me and my husband both have got colds and we have used these many times before so I bought some and so did my husband on the same day, I bought these and my husband bought some that was blackcurrant so we have been able to change them around.
WHAT I THINK
These are easy to make and they do not taste bad, I do not think they taste very nice but the flavour is quite pleasing when I have got a cold because they make me feel comforted.
There is paracetamol and vitamin C in these drinks and they have helped me to stop my temperature from making me too hot, I do not think that drinking them for 3 days while I was sick is enough for vitamin C to work very well but they do make me feel better for a small amount of time after I have drunk the drink.
They make me feel a little bit sleepy and that is why I drink one before bedtime because they unblock my nose enough for me to be able to go to sleep and make me feel more comfortable and less like I am sweating also.
You can take one only every 4 hours and you must not take any more products that have got paracetamol in them. If you are so sick that you would need more to help you feel better then you can take Ibuprofen in between drinks but make sure nothing else you take contains paracetamol. The drinks are for children who are over 12 years only but I would not give these to a child because I think Calpol and a cool bath are better than medicated drinks.
There are 5 sachets in a box and I paid £1.59, I think that is value because that is 5 doses and it is a drink as well as medicine.

I like to enjoy a "pamper night" every so often, where I give myself a facial and treat myself to a nice face mask. I buy this range of face masks as they are cheap to buy, readily available and they come in a handy single application sachet. You simply tear open the sachet in the corner and squeeze out the face mask. The mask is a chocolate brown colour and the consistency resembles that of melted chocolate, yum yum! It actually smells like REAL chocolate too, which is a nice bonus. The masks are usually priced at 90p to £1.00.
You simply apply the mask to clean dry skin allowing it to dry before washing it off. I find the mask easy to apply to my skin. It's just like slapping a load of melted chocolate onto your face, which makes the whole experience a lot nicer. The mask smells great and the smell lingers on your skin as the mask dries. I find the mask dries in around ten minutes, although I like to leave it on for around twenty minutes so it's had a decent amount of time to soak into my skin. I then wash it off with warm water and pat my face dry.
The mask washes off easily and after use it leaves my skin looking (and feeling) great. I am always impressed with the results I get after using this mask. My skin feels much softer, it looks a lot brighter and overall my complexion just looks a lot clearer. The kaolin (mud) in the mask also helps with oil control, which is something that benefits me as my skin is usually VERY oily.
I would definitely recommend these face masks. They're great value, fun to use and lovely and relaxing. They're perfect for a girly night in or as part of a sleepover hamper.
Where can I buy them from? I've seen these face masks for sale in the following stores:
Amazon.co.uk (Gift sets)
These are mini frozen croissant from supermarket Waitrose.
We buy them occasionally as a breakfast treat and they make a low hassle alternative to buying fresh. They are ideal for special days, weekend mornings, birthdays etc. This small size is great for kids too.
These are part of a range of frozen breakfast goods that include pain au chocolat, pain aux raisins, larger croissants, and mixed butter pastries.
The ingredients are Wheat flour, Charentes butter (milk), water, sugar, yeast, wheat gluten, pasteurised free range egg, salt, emulsifier mono- and diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids, flour treatment agent ascorbic acid.
To cook them remove all packaging and place on baking tray. Cook for 10-12 mins in an oven at preheated to 200°C (Fan: 180°C) or Gas Mark gas 6. Like all products like this they cook quite fast an you have to keep an eye on them so as to not burn them, particularly if you oven runs quite hot.
The quality is nice and they're better than buying pastries the day before and keeping them overnight for breakfast and the fact that they're freshly cooked and warm whenever you want to prepare them is a big bonus rather than buying ones already cooked from the bakery which get dry quite quickly. We also really like the pain au chocolat which is in the same range.
The cost £2.79 for a pack of 12 but at the time of writing are part of a 2 for £5 offer.
Used Boots lipsticks for many years without ever having a problem until I tried a new shade, plum beautiful in the moisture drench range. ( No problems with Pink Mocha.)
I have been in touch with boots to retest Plum Beautiful as I experienced an inflammatory reaction which may have been due to the dye used.
Having shopped at several different Waitrose stores for several years I have to say it's my favourite supermarket by a long way.
Waitrose seems to have a very different ethos and attitude to its customers than other stores and feel slightly old fashioned when it comes to customer service. There's a sense of the customer always being right but also the staff are really respectful and tend to seem quite calm and like they've got the time to deal with you which is unusual in this day and age.
The Stores tend to be laid out in a simple and relatively uncluttered manner with wide aisles and without tons of random baskets of things littering aisles. It also a great shop if you are a keen cook as it's an easy store to pick up basic and unusual ingredients that don't often get found in supermarkets.
The brand range tends to be a bit more upmarket & more expensive but in general even the Waitrose essentials range is great quality and I like that I can pick up nicer quality skin-care there.
Most of the time when we visit Waitrose all the checkouts are open even if the store is quiet which makes the process of paying less stressful and avoids queues. The only time we've found a store hectic was on Christmas eve but even then staff where controlling the queuing which helped to keep the store aisles relatively clear and the people queuing were in a good mood. This calm attitude is really great for those of us who tend to get a bit overwhelmed by high sensory input.
The only negative I have to say is that certain product lines can sell out fast and we often have to find an alternative for things we buy regularly. Not a big deal but maybe some stores need a little more stock of popular items/offers or to restock shelves more often.
The Motorola Moto E is a budget touch screen smartphone retailing for well under £100. Mine cost £59 but they seem to be available in the £50-£99 range as sim free phones.
I initially got this phone as a short term replacement for another smart phone that came to the end of its life.
My main attraction to this phone was the low price and long battery life. The long battery life has proven to stand up to claims and it's a fab phone that in low use (just for phone and light app use) will last me 3 days before it needs charging). Having had other very expensive and fast phones that run a host of demanding apps brilliantly but drain the battery fully in a few hours I decided to approach this phone purchase a little differently. My first consideration was battery life, the second was cost and the third a nice solid feeling phone that would stand up to everyday life. The Moto E has so far full filled all my criteria.
The Screen on the phone is Gorilla glass, has a nice clear image and is a responsive to touch as you would expect from a modern smart phone. The phone feels solid and it's got quite a big battery so is a fair bit thicker than many smart phones.
The reason I think this phone is cheaper is that some corners have been cut when it comes to features. This phone has no 4G and the camera is fixed focus. These are features that I don't miss particularly as I live in an area with minimal phone signal let alone 4G and carry a camera day to day anyway. The battery is also a permanent fixture in the phone which is unusual.
I think this would be a great phone for a teenager or someone who wants access to apps without the worry of owning a very expensive phone that could get lost, damaged or stolen. The android interface has it's own twist but will be familiar to anyone with experience of other android phones.
I've not noticed the phone to be slow even though it has a relatively slow processor but choosing the apps you use carefully makes a big difference. Also using a cache cleaner and battery management app can help keep your phone running smoothly since you are made aware of what is running in the background draining resources.
Overall I'd recommend the phone especially to those who want a nice phone to use on pay as you go.
Hotel Chocolat is a company that sells exclusive, high quality chocolate products. I have used the site to send gifts to family members as I feel the quality of the chocolate is a little bit more special and unique than other brands available on the high street. Although Hotel Chocolat have some high street stores there is not one near enough to me to visit and it's also very easy and convenient to arrange a gift service from their website.
The online store sells a variety of boxes of chocolates arranged for different occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, congratulatory events and many more. You can browse through the selections by using the menu at the top of the main page. They also feature chocolate items which are seasonal so they have Easter eggs and Christmas chocolates etc. As well as their gift selections they offer smaller items like slabs and batons, sharing packs, products relating to chocolate making as well as spirits and wines that are cocoa infused or which are complimentary to their chocolates. They also have options for vegans and vegetarians as well as gluten free options. In general they have a huge collection with lots of options in terms of pricing from less than £10 to products costing well over £100. They also have a 'Tasting Club' opportunity online which may be of interest to chocoholics!
I have only ever used the site to order boxes of chocolates to send to my family as gifts. I would say that the price of the products at Hotel Chocolat is quite expensive. The items that are cheapest on the site tend to be quite small. However, having also received some of their products as gifts myself I can confirm that the price does match the quality of the products. The recipients of my gifts have also been really pleased with their deliveries.
During the ordering process you are able to personalize a message to your recipient. Delivery costs extra but can be arranged for a specific date and are delivered by special parcel delivery. I have not had any problems with the items I've ordered and they have been delivered promptly and when they are supposed to be.
I think the quality and uniqueness of the products sold by Hotel Chocolat is what makes it worth using the company. They taste absolutely amazing. It is possible to sample some of their items if you ever pass a high street store. I personally love their Classic Signature Collection as it contains a variety of chocolate truffles and centres which are guaranteed to suit any taste.
I would certainly shop here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a special gift for a loved one.

I usually love The Body Shop products, however I was disappointed with this one. This BB Cream is part of the Vitamin E range from The Body shop and it costs £11 per 50ml tube. I paid a little less as I bought it as part of a 40% off promotion as a "Love Your Body" member. The BB Cream comes presented in an attractive looking pink tube with a flip top lid. The BB Cream comes in just the one shade.
The BB Cream is a moisturiser and a foundation in one and it is to be applied straight over bare skin, so the store assistant told me. I was told that if I applied it over moisturiser it would look too greasy as I have oily skin. I first used this as directed, straight over bare skin. Within half an hour my skin looked shiny, greasy and my oily skin was worse than ever. I applied powder over the top of it on my second application but my skin still looked incredibly greasy. I wasn't happy. On my THIRD application I used a little primer beforehand but the BB Cream caked, thus flaking off and looking like I had rubbed sand into my face. This was NOT a good look!
I attempted to use the BB Cream a few more times but nothing worked, it was not suitable for my skin type. In the end I had to return it and I was told it may have been part of a bad batch. I was given another tube to try. The second tube was the same as the first. The consistency was awful, the BB Cream caked again and it left my skin looking as shiny as the first one did.
I gave the tube to my mum in the end who happened to like it so at least it didn't go to waste! My mum has dry skin though so her skin type is different to mine, perhaps that's why it worked for her and not for me.
Overall this was a bad experience for me. I thought the consistency was terrible, the "coverage" was shocking and it DEFINETELY is NOT for oily skin types.
Not your best product Body Shop!
