      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A worthy toy for your pooch!

      The Happy Pet Tug of War rubber toy was first bought for our pooch when he was a puppy, and has provided him with endless hours of fun and enjoyment.

      One advantage of the toy is the rubber itself it is made out of. It's just so strong and durable, that even the toughest of dogs will struggle to take chunks out of it! If your dog is anything like ours and can get a bit eager and boistorous during play time, you'll find it reassuring that the rubber material is very sturdy and will not snap and break like other flimsy toys have done so easily in the past.

      On a more superficial side, the tug of war toy comes in a range of different colours for you to pick and chose from. Your dog may be colourblind and probably won't appreciate this nice gesture of being given the choice, but I know I appreciated being able to chose my favourite colour (orange) from the range they had available. Also, to it's advantage, the toy comes in two different sizes, either 16.5 inches or 13 inches long, so you can pick whichever according to the size of your dog.

      In terms of how entertaining it is, I've found it's a really fun toy to play with, both for the owner and for the pet. It amuses me having a tug of war contest with the dog, and judging by the joyfully wagging tail every time this toy comes out of the drawer I'm guessing he loves it just as much, too! Furthermore, you don't have to enjoy the toy just as a tug of war game, even though that's the intention. My dog also likes to play fetch with it too.

      Sadly over time this toy has been worn down by my dog's relentless play with it, but it lasted well over two years which we were very happy with, like stated before other flimsy toys have succumbed to our dog's enthusiastic ways only after a few days, so a lifespan on a toy that has lasted this long is very very impressive!

      In terms of prices the 16.5 inch toy currently costs £4.99 at Pets at Home, which is a little on the pricey side, yet for the the time it lasts and the joy it provides I'd deem it a worthy investment.

      Even though it unfortunetely did end up being torn apart, i cerrtainly would not hesitate to purchase another one! 5 stars!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A worthy 5 out of 5 Dooyoo stars.

      Jennifer Lopez's scent 'Live' first became available to purchase back in 2005, and is her fourth offering when it comes to perfume.

      *****What does it look like?*****

      The bottle itself is truly stunning, and receives top marks from me. It has a thin neck which curves out at the bottom into more a rounded shape. The glass they've used is transparent, yet various colours have been stained onto it - not opaque either, meaning that when you pick up the bottle and turn it around it beautifully transforms from a sunny yellow, to a gorgeous green, to a rich purple and then back to the yellow again.

      The nozzle is a pale, metallic pink situated on top of the bottle, and below this you'll find a deep pink back of colour around the neck, with the product's title 'Jennifer Lopez Live'.

      *****What does it smell like?*****

      The notes for this fragrance are as follows...

      Top notes: Italian Orange, Sicilian Lemon and Pineapple.
      Heart notes: Spicy Violet, Redcurrant and Peony.
      Base notes: Caramel Tonka Beans and Sandalwood.

      The scent is truly lovely - it's a rich aroma with what I could describe as having a slight fruity twang to it. I would be happy to wear this scent both as an everyday aroma as well as a perfume for evenings out, it is a really unique and versatile fragrance and I believe ideal for plenty of different occasions.

      Regarding how long the scent lasts once applied, I must say this this perfume has a fantastic staying power. The scent lingers on you for ages after that initial spritz and I haven't found myself re-applying like I have with other perfumes!

      All in all, it's a really lovely perfume and one that I would very much so recommend.

      Morgan Love De Toi is just one of many fragrances that Morgan have available, and this particular perfume was one I received as a Christmas gift the year before last.

      *****What does it look like?*****

      There's really no doubting what gender this fragrance was designed for - the bottle just screams 'feminine'. It's pretty looking, the glass goes from clear at the top and then blends into a tinted pink colour towards the base.

      The top of the bottle, where you actually spray the scent from, comes in a lovely shade of pink, and the look is completed on the front with a light pink butterfly image that's got a fake, sparkly bit of diamante for a body. I've got the 60ml variety, which stands at 10cm tall and just under 7cm wide, so it's really not too bulky.

      *****What does it smell like?*****

      The notes for Morgan Love De Toi are as follows...

      Top notes: Pink Pepper, Mandarin Orange, Raspberry and Green Apple.
      Heart notes: Rose, Lily-Of-The-Valley, Jasmine, Tiara Flower and Grenadine.
      Base notes: Sandalwood, Musk and Morello Cherry.

      Similar to the bottle it comes in, the fragrance is very girly. It's quite a sweet smell, and applied too vigorously then I reckon it might come across as being too sickly sweet for my liking. Having said that, I think it's a decent Summer scent and would most probably wear it for the warmer months.

      I feel the product is slightly let down by the less than amazing staying power it has. As nice as the fragrance is, I don't think it lasts for very long once applied, and you may find yourself having to re-apply in a way which you wouldn't say if you were using a better perfume.

      *****What's the cost like?*****

      The best price I've seen it online would be from The Perfume Shop, where you can purchase a 35ml bottle of the stuff for £7.49.

      To conclude, I would rate this fragrance at a 3/5, given the fact that it doesn't last for as long as I'd like and it has the potential to be quite a sickly sweet scent.

      Peter Kay's back with his brand new tour that doesn't tour tour! Being big fans on his, me and my family were fortunate enough to snap up some tickets which were selling like hotcakes, and as a result we got to go see him live recently on Friday 26th November at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena.

      The seats the four of us had were really good, the very top row of the upmost tier in the block right next to the stage, and although we were quite high up there were three big screens (two either side of the stage and one behind him) allowing us to see the many facial expressions Kay uses during his routine.

      There was no support act prior to Peter's appearance - I had overheard others in the audience speculating about this, and names such as Rick Astley and Paddy McGuinness were mentioned, however it turned out that Peter had no support act for his Sheffield gigs, though I'm not sure what happens at different venues around the UK as I've read reports of Mr Astley being present at some of the London gigs.

      Onto the act himself, Mr Peter Kay. After many years passing since his last tour, we wondered whether his return would live up to the standard of the Mum wants a bungalow phenomenon. However, it's safe to say that Peter is back and as good as, if not better than before.

      There wasn't a minute that passed where we weren't laughing out loud, the gags are hilarious. Without giving too much away, topics he covered included his family (lots of histerical references to be had), television shows and memories of his school years to name a just a few.

      Of course, there's mention of the old favourites too, such as the brilliant 'garlic bread' and 'cheesecake' gags. There's also the return of his little tape player, in which he gives us a side splitting take on the lyrics of some popular songs (the inspiration for my review title!).

      Time flew by and before we knew it, it was nearly the end of the show. Peter's encore is fantastic, and will have you singing and swaying along while he rocks out on stage to one of Queen's greatest hits.

      To conclude, it was a superb night, 1,000% funny and I'll be first in line to buy the DVD of the tour that doesn't tour tour when it goes on sale!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A truly enjoyable read, most definitely recommended!

        Since the film has just been released, I thought I'd take the opportunity to write a review about the book the movie is based on. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was written by JK Rowling, and was released on 21st July 2007. Being the Potter fan that I am, I can avidly remember this day, eagerly waiting for the Amazon delivery man to bring me the final installment of a series that I had enjoyed for many years.

        The story follows Harry and his two best friends Ron and Hermione, who are on a mission to try to track down and destroy Voldemort's horcruxes, thus rendering his mortal and free for Harry to defeat and save the wizarding world once and for all.

        Their mission takes them all over the place, and in all of the Harry Potter books this is the first time that they don't return to Hogwarts for their magical studies (don't worry - their mission takes them back there eventually!).

        Speaking of returning, the seventh book sees characters that featured in others books of the series make an appearance once again. It was good to see the return of evil Professor Umbridge up to her old tricks once more, and I enjoyed reading about the French belle Fleur Delacour again, who was first introduced in book four, the Goblet of Fire.

        The relationships between various characters are featured heavily throughout the book, too. We see Ron and Harry's friendship tested and strained in some parts of the novel, and I also particularly enjoyed watching Ron and Hermione's friendship blossom and develop into something more.

        With regards to the atmosphere of the book, this one differs to the previous six in terms of how dark it is - when comparing Deathly Hallows to the others in the series you can see it definitely has a more menacing feel to it. I think JK Rowling conveys this atmosphere so well and really makes you feel the emotions of the characters and what they experience throughout the book.

        Moving on to the ending of the book, I thought it was perfect. The final battle between Harry and the good guys vs Voldemort and his crew was brilliant and I can not fault Rowling on her work.

        Of course, with a war of good against evil on this scale, it's inevitable that fatal losses will occur, and I must admit to getting a little bit weepy at a couple of the death scenes in the book!

        To conclude, I believe that this is the best book of the lot, and for that I have to give Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows a rating of five.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Would I recommend it? Absolutely!

        If you use hot tongs/straighteners on a regular basis, then it's vital you use some form of protection which will help to keep your hair from getting damaged. For me, I've discovered that Tresemmé heat defence styling spray is the perfect solution.

        *****What does it look like?*****

        The sleek bottle comes in black, complete with text and logos in both white and an attractive shade of purple. It's got a pump nozzle attachment (like you might find on many kitchen and bathroom cleaning products) so you can easily spray in onto your hair. I've got the 300ml version, and stands at around 23cm tall, which is a nice, ideal size and won't clutter up space on your dressing table.

        Onto what the liquid actually looks like, when spraying it out of the bottle, it bursts out in a light, fine mist, which you can gently spray on your hair accordingly.

        *****What does it smell like?*****

        The scent really impressed me - it smells very nice. I can't put my finger on a specific aroma of what the scent of it actually is, but it's a pleasant, clean smell, and one which I would associate with my hairdressers.

        *****What does it feel like?*****

        The instructions on the back of the bottle direct you to spray it onto damp hair, then proceed to dry. I have been using this product for many months now, and it still never fails to impress me on just how soft and lovely it leaves my hair feeling. I know the purpose of the spray is to protect my hair from heat, but wow it really does that and more! My locks have never felt so nourished, and I can straighten/curl away knowing that my hair is protected to the max.

        The price of the heat defence spray is £4.70 for a 300ml bottle, and although it's quite pricey, I would that the benefits are worth every penny.

          Advantages

          • Reliability

          Disadvantages

          Definitely recommended!

          I love listening to music, be it on the go or as simple background noise when I'm sat using the computer. While the ear bud variety is great for when I'm out and about, I prefer to listen via actual headphones at home, and this pair of Panasonic RP-HT225 headphones is the perfect answer.

          *****What do they look like?*****

          Firstly, I'd like to point out that the colours used for the headphones are pretty unimaginative; they're a shade of dark grey, with a black cord and light grey writing on each ear pad.

          That being said, the whole point of headphones doesn't revolve around what colour they are, and the dull tones are nothing to make a disadvantage out of.

          The cord itself is a very good length - there's three metres worth of it, which I consider to be an ideal length when it comes to headphones.

          *****What do they feel like?*****

          On first placement on my head, I thought that they fitted rather well, and although they weren't the most sturdy headphones I've ever used, they seemed fine to me.

          Other headphones I've used have really clamped to my ears so I can totally dilute outside noise and concentrate just on what's coming out of the phones, yet these sadly don't have this effect.

          Moving on, the adjustable headband feature makes it really simple for you to create a more comfortable fit, and personally the fact that the headband is wide I thought was another advantage. Another benefit would be the foam that Panasonic have in the earpads, which once more add to the whole comfort experience.

          *****What do they sound like?*****

          I've found the headphones to be top quality regarding sound. Audio is great when listening through them, it's really clear and I've experienced no problems on this front.

          I love the fact that the headphones come with it's own in-line volume control, which is situated on the cord, and allows me to easily to adjust the volume of what I'm listening to.

          It's a great feature and I in particular find it beneficial as my computer speakers are located in an awkward position behind my actual computer, making it tricky to change volume settings from there!

          *****What's the cost like?*****

          They're available to buy from Argos for £10.99, which is pretty good value for your money I reckon.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            See review :)

            The Pact is just one of the many novels written by Jodi Picoult, and was released in 1998.

            The plotline centres around the lives of Chris Harte and Emily Gold, nextdoor neighbours and friends literally since they were born. During their early teens their friendship blossoms into something more, which doesn't surprise their parents at all as they saw it coming and willingly accept their newfound relationship.

            However, their fairytale lifestyle is horrifically cut short when Emily, now 17, is found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, and Chris, again 17, is found at the scene of the crime with his fingerprints all over the murder weapon, insisting it was a suicide pact that went wrong.

            We learn of Emily's death pretty much within the first chapter of the book, and the story carries on from here, looking at the aftermath of what happened and how each of the characters cope with the sudden crisis of Emily gone forever and Chris taking the criminal blame for the murder he says he didn't do.

            The book not only tells the story from Chris or Emily's point of view, but we also see it through the eyes of the other characters, too, these being Gus and James Harte - Chris' mother and father, and also Melanie and Micheal - Emily's parents. I like the fact that we can see how other people involved in the story are feeling, too - some books only have the thoughts and opinions of the main character, yet here we can see the views of more people other than just the main protaginists.

            Throughout the book some chapters are dedicated to flashbacks, which range from childhood memories of Emily and Chris up to weeks before the accident took place. I think is a fantastic inclusion to have, as it gives us more of an insight to the characters' backgrounds, and will eventually show the reasoning behind just why Emily ended up dead.

            I think that Picoult's made the characters very likeable and I found myself easily warming to the majority of them. The author has painted these characters so vividly and you can relate to them throughout the book, be it understanding the sorrow of Chris at losing his soulmate, or just how sad Emily was feeling before she died.

            The ending of the book is indeed a tear-jerker, and the final flashback revealing what really happened had me weeping my eyes out! I think the book has a great ending to it, it ties up any loose ends nicely and does so in a way that is fantastically written and not rushed at all.

            In all, it's a brilliant read and I couldn't recommend it enough.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Would definitely recommend!

              I recently bought an electric shock pen for my brother as a present for his birthday, and it has since become a menace when borrowing stationary!

              It looks like any ordinary pen - as you can see in the product image it consists of a sleek, contemporary design made up in the colours black and metallic silver. Let this be a warning to you; don't judge a book by it's cover!

              It's a 'clicky' pen, one where you have to press in the top to release the nib end, this enabling you to write. However, upon pressing said top, you are treated to a rather mild electric shock!

              Why should I buy it?

              First off, it's a very entertaining gadget. It's fun when someone asks to borrow a pen, you give them this, and you wait while they use it. The anticipation in itself is enjoyable as you wait for that moment when they pick up the pen and their thumb makes contact with the top.

              Your victim's reaction is another bonus to the pen. Seeing their face is hilarious, switching from one emotion to the next - surprise, to shock, to slight discomfort, to eventual laughter, it's guaranteed to keep you amused, hence being a second reason why you should make this purchase!

              Why should I leave it on the shelf?

              Mention must also be made of the bad points of the pen, the first disadvantage being the times when you're the one on the recieving end of a shock! The electric shock doesn't really hurt as such, it just gives you a little jolt which will probably make you jump the first time it happens to you.

              A second disadvantage would be the actual ink capacity of the pen. Yes, I know that that's not really the point of this specific pen, it's just a shocking device disguised as a pen. Nevertheless, it is a pen, and it ran out after a mere two pages worth of words. So if you were to acutally dare and use this as a means of writing, then prepare for it to run out!

              As for availability, you can purchase it from Amazon's website at prices which range from £2.99 to £4.95.

              In all, it's a fun little gadget with the potential to create a lot of laughs - an ideal birthday or Christmas gift for those mischevious people you know!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Can you solve the Cube?

                Rubik's Cubes first hit the market back in 1974, and ever since then they've had generations of people in states of bafflement, entertainment and frustration.

                For those of you who've been living under a rock for the past 36 years, a Rubik's cube is basically a 3D puzzle. It consists of a 3 by 3 cube, and on each face you'll find 9 separate squares which initially, before twisting and turning, will be the same colour on each side. There's six colours to the Rubik's Cube; red, blue, yellow, green, orange and white.

                The aim of the game is to try and get the cube back to it's matching state like it was when you first purchased it - that is, each face has 9 stickers that are all of the same colours, e.g. all the greens on the same side, all the blues, all the yellows and so on and so forth.

                Why I love it....

                For one, it's addictive. You can happily sit in your own little bubble and waste hours twisting away trying to solve the puzzle.

                Another reason why I love it would be that you can't beat that feeling you get when you think you're on to something. Say, for instance, you've managed to line up a row of three reds, it spurs you on to try and seek out the remaining six reds. It gives you a sense of achievement, that you're finally getting somewhere with the riddle that is Rubik's Cube!

                Additionally, it's fun for the whole family. Nowadays it's being said that the younger generation are video game mad, what with Xbox's to the left and Playstation's to the right. It's something that a vast number of parents can't relate to, seeing as they grew up in a world where none of this was available. With the Rubik's cube, however, it's simple to get to grasps with, and something that many parents will possibly remember from their past when they were growing up, too.

                Why I hate it....

                One reason why I absolutely loathe the Rubik's cube is that it can get so frustrating! Endlessly turning those squares over and over and over and feeling like you're not getting anywhere does take it's toll on you! Sometimes you'll feel like chucking it out the window as it seems like you'll never, ever get all the corresponding colours matched up where you want.

                To follow on from the above disadvantage, a second reason for not liking the Rubik's cube would be the need for patience. It's not a puzzle you can solve in two minutes (unless you're super-smart). It's something that requires time and a whole bucket full of diligence to accomplish, hence it's not the best of games for people who get restless easily!

                In all, it's a great puzzle to attempt to solve, and even though you could get irritated with it, you'll feel like kissing the damn thing when you've finally solved it!

                Regarding price, the cheapest place I've found would be Amazon, where you can purchase it for £6.26.

                  Lovely fragrance - would highly recommend.

                  Gucci Envy Me is just one in a whole range of perfumes from Gucci, and is my particular favourite fragrance that they produce.

                  *****What does is look like?*****

                  Like with the majority of perfumes, you can pick which size bottle of the stuff you want. I've got the 30ml option, which measures in at roughly 12cm tall.

                  The bottle is a very straight edged, perfectly oblong shape, made of transparent glass, complete with an immaculate cube design lid made out of white plastic.

                  On said lid you will find the product title 'Gucci Envy Me', the former two words printed in a shiny metallic silver and the latter word done in a mild, easy on the eye pink, in a font which looks suspiciously like Century Gothic (though don't quote me on this!).

                  On all four sides of the glass part of the bottle is a continuously linked pattern, made up of numerous 'G's' (presumably for 'Gucci') connected by a series of square dots. Once more, the design is in the same pink as the word 'Me', and this matchy approach gives a sense of what I think is uniformity and stylishness to the bottle.

                  *****What does it smell like?*****

                  The notes for this perfume are as follows...

                  Top notes: peony, jasmine, pink peppers, litchi, pomegranate and pineapple
                  Heart notes: pink musk, seringa and white tea
                  Bases notes: sandalwood, teakwood and sensual musk

                  The above notes form to create this attractive 'Envy me' scent. The perfume has got a lovely sense of girliness to it; it's very sweet smelling with a floaty aroma.

                  It's also got great staying power, too - it leaves a lingering scent which is nice and subtle - not overbearing, but just enough of a fragrance for people around you to gently pick up on it and pay you compliments!

                  It might be a bit too girly for everyday wear, and I think it's the perfect scent for a night out, or furthermore I would happily wear it to any important occasion.

                  *****What does it cost?*****

                  It's a bit pricier than some perfumes, and a 30ml bottle of this will set you back £32.50 if you purchase it from The Perfume Shop.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    They're a great way of giving your revisions some colour - thoroughly recommended!

                    I'm not sure about fellow students, but I find it really hard to revise without colour. The thought of trawling through my endless notes, page after page in boring, lifeless black and white just doesn't bare thinking about!

                    However, Stabilo boss highlighters are the perfect savior when it comes to adding a splash of colour to your studies!

                    *****What do they look like?*****

                    The highlighters measure 4 inches long and are just under 1 inch wide. Obviously they are a lot chunkier than your average biro, yet by no means does this make them more difficult to hold in your hands. You can easily get a good grasp on them and highlight away with a steady hand!

                    On the face of each highlighter is simply the company name printed in black, complete with the logo of a little red swan, and on the back of the product you can find the bar code among other information.

                    The actual colour of the plastic pen is in accordance with - you guessed it - the shade the product highlights in, and each have a black lid regardless of what colour the highlighter is.

                    Speaking of colours, Stabilo's website states that these highlighters come in nine different varieties, which are yellow, blue, green, red, turquoise, orange, purple, light pink and dark pink. All of them are really great colours, and I personally have a preference for the blue and turquoise versions.

                    *****What does it look like on paper?*****

                    When it comes to adding colour, the highlighters get top marks. They come out very well on paper, the colours looking nicely vibrant and fluorescent.

                    They can glide easily over the page, and when used over text you're still able to see your writing through the highlights.

                    Some shades do happen to be brighter than others - the yellow variant makes my eyes hurt if I look at it too long (thought that's probably thanks to my dodgy eyes!), and the purple lacks the brightness of the lighter shades, however I can appreciate the differences as it adds yet more flair to my work!

                    *****What's the price?*****

                    You can purchase a wallet of 8 Stabilo highlighters from Amazon for the price of £5.68.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A brilliant perfume - highly recommended!

                    It's easy to say that this is a favourite scent of mine. My friends will vouch for me on this - I'm always harping on about how gorgeous it smells! This perfume was given to me as a gift the Christmas before last, and since then it's fast become my favourite fragrance to wear!

                    *****What does it look like?*****

                    There's a choice available regarding what size bottle you want - be it either 15, 30, 50 or 75ml of the fragrance - I personally have the 30ml variant.

                    The bottle itself is a smooth, curved design, and is made of transparent glass, letting you see clearly how much of the scent you've got left. Some bottles of perfume are coloured, making it hard to see whether or not you're running out and need to go buy some more, yet the transparency of Christina Aguilera's bottle poses no problems on this front.

                    The design is very pretty, too - on the bottle's face is an intricate, flowery/lacy black pattern which visually looks lovely, and is complete with a little dainty black bow tied around the bottle's neck.

                    *****What does it smell like?*****

                    According to the website, the notes for this perfume are as follows...

                    Top notes: Exotic fruit sorbet, tangerine and black currant
                    Heart notes: Peony, jasmine and plum
                    Base notes: Amber, creamy vanilla and musk notes.

                    When the above scents are all mixed up together, the stunning smell that is 'Christina Aguilera' is created - and it does not disappoint.

                    It's beautiful, and has a very feminine aroma to it, yet not in such a way so that it's sickly or too sweet. It's also unique - some perfumes can be bland and lack that sense of originality; I've smelt perfumes that are very similar to each other, yet this one is in a league of its own.

                    *****What's the price?*****

                    The best price I've researched can be found at Superdrug, where a 30ml bottle of the stuff can be purchased for the price of £17.99.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Amazing for dry skin, do try it!

                      I've no idea why my skin - particularly my hands - has suddenly started becoming so dry. You'd think if any season it would've started happening in winter, not these summer months.
                      However, dry hands are no problem to deal with anymore as I've discovered the miracle that is Atrixo hand cream!

                      *****Packaging*****

                      The cream comes in a small, nicely compact plastic pot, roughly around 5.5 cm wide and 3 cm tall.
                      I love the fact that it's the size that it is - it makes it very easy to simply slide in your bag so you can use it when you're out and about and the dreaded dryness plays up!

                      The lid, a pale green colour, unscrews easily from the product - of which is a nice, light yellow colour.
                      It's got a simple design to it; a circular label on top with the necessary information - Atrixo's logo, the product title along with an image of two flowers - and printed around the sides of the pot are again the logo and the product name.

                      *****The actual product*****

                      After taking off the lid, you're hit with the cream's scent. It's got a lovely, clean, refreshing smell to it which makes me want to use it all the more!

                      The actual cream itself is a pristine white, opaque substance, not runny like countless other moisturising creams I've used in the past, which is a personal bonus for me.
                      It's soft to the touch, and easily pliable in your hands. You don't need great globs of it either for it to do the job, which is another advantage for Atrixo.

                      Once you've got it on your fingers, gently rub it in to your dry skin. The effects are almost instantaneous! Your skin'll feel ridiculously soft and as smooth as a baby's bum - wonderful results!

                      Another advantage would be that it doesn't make your hands sticky once you've used it.
                      Other previous moisturising creams have left a tacky residue on my hands, rendering me unable to use them until they completely absorbed the product. Yet Atrixo doesn't have this problem and just absorbs right in!

                      *****Price*****
                      You can purchase a 50ml pot for the price of £1.79 from Boots, though I'd recommend having a mosey around for the best price available.

                        Advantages

                        • Reliability

                        Disadvantages

                        A great buy - definitely recommend them!

                        JVC electronics are the creators of these 'Gumy' In-ear headphones, and according to their website, they're new additions to the market and have fast become my number one choice when it comes to buying audio products in funky, snappy colours!

                        *****What do they look like?*****

                        As I previously mentioned, the ear buds come in a multitude of colours of which you can take your pick from. There's nine in total, from Peppermint Blue to Olive Black (quite contradictory names!) the choice is yours.

                        I've currently got the 'kiwi green' variety, which is a lovely light, vibrant shade of green. The wire is also this shade, too, and furthermore is 1 metre long, which I think is the perfect length regarding headphones.

                        *****What does it feel like?*****

                        I was pleased to discover that they fit nice and snug in my ears - previous ear buds tended to fall our of my ears far too often for my liking - yet these babies stay in even when I forcefully shake my head from side to side, letting me rave on without worrying they're about to fly out of my lugs!

                        *****What does it sound like?*****

                        As far as headphones go, they're pretty good quality. The sound is decent, and I am able to listen to my music clearly.

                        That being said, I would've liked to have seen a volume controller located on the wire of the ear buds like I have seen on numerous other audio products, as the volume controls on my phone are far from fantastic. This is only a minor disadvantage, though, and perhaps I am being a little picky over my buds!

                        *****What's the damage?*****

                        A pair of these will set you back just £7 from Asda, which is where I bought them from. They're also currently doing a promotion of buying two for a tenner, which - I thought to myself at the time - was pretty good value.

                        However, having just had a look on Amazon, I've discovered you can purchase them from there for just £4.99 plus free shipping, so that's where I'd recommend you buy them!
