      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Only buy if you aren't worried about sugar content or saving the pennies

      I have tried the slim fast diet a couple of times to kick start weight loss however once I have been doing it a couple of weeks I tend to just stick to healthy eating and exercise. The reason for this is that I feel that the 3 2 1 diet idea is a good way for me to get into the routine of having 3 meals a day and some snacks without going overboard. Unfortunately once it has given me a kick start I always grudge buying the shakes as I feel I could have the same results by making healthy meals at home and save myself the expense.

      Firstly slim fast is a diet that involves eating 3 snacks a day worth 100 calories each, 2 slim fast shakes and 1 meal. This is meant to help to achieve a slow and steady weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week. One unrelated point which I would like to point out to those wishing to try it is to check out the slim fast website which not only contains some good recipe ideas but has forums which are fairly active and seem to be good for moral support.

      When making shakes you have the option of buying powder for creating your own shakes at home by just adding milk to two scoops of powder or buying ready made shakes. I have tried both but personally I prefer buying the tubs of powder as it works out cheaper (Boots and Asda recently did offers so you can buy the tub of powder for £2.99 instead of £5.99) however I have noticed that the ready made shakes have more flavour options than the powders. This can be good as it stops you getting bored from having the same flavours all the time. My personal favourites are the Strawberry and Vanilla and I find the chocolate to be too bitter. Before giving up and deciding the diet isn't for you as you don't like the shakes I would recommend you try different flavours as they all taste really different so I'm sure everyone will be able to find something to suit their tastes. No matter what flavour you buy though they are all really tasty.

      Other than the cost of keeping up with the diet the other downside of the shakes is that they have a lot of sugar in them so if you are looking for a low sugar diet then this wouldn't suit you.

      I also find one shake really fills you up and I don't feel hungry an hour later.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Try it!

        To be clear I absolutely love Mexican Food so I knew these were going to be right up my street. I have bought this pack twice now and I will probably buy many times again in the future.

        This is a kit made by Old El Paso to help you make your own fajitas. It contains eight small wraps, a packet of seasoning and a packet of salsa. The box states which you also need to purchase 500g of chicken or meat/veg of your choice as well as 2 bell peppers and an onion. Of course these are only suggestions and you can add whatever suits your taste. I have so far stuck to what the box recommends though although I only use one yellow pepper as I'm not a huge fan and feel this is adequate for the mixture.

        It comes in a large yellow box with the logo on top and a picture of some fajitas. I personally find this very striking on the shelves and it has always gained my curiosity before I started making them. On the front it also shows a large diagram of what you need which is good to save any confusion as I'm sure many people may think you get everything you need in the box.

        Whilst I usually buy the smoky BBQ there are many other flavours available to choose from.

        The fajitas are really easy to make and I can usually make them in around 20 minutes. Everything is in the box is packaged very well although the packets seem to be really difficult to open even with scissors. When opening the salsa I tend to end up getting it everywhere as I struggle to open it.

        I also find the spice mix can be very salty and has a real kick to it (which isn't a complaint from me just a warning). I don't think you really need the whole mix for taste but I think if you don't add it all the colour looks a bit off.

        The first time I made the product I added the salsa and cooked it with the chicken which I think worked really well however was quite messy. The second time I put the salsa in a glass and heated in the microwave for a minute as I didn't like the idea of it cold. I also bought a sour cream dip and grated some cheese however this was my personal taste and you could add other things such as jalapeños or guacamole.

        The wraps are quite small however very filling and healthy (one prepared fajita only contains 146 calories). They also seem to be very thick and good quality so don't fall apart when they are filled.

        Overall I would highly recommend this product to those who enjoy Mexican food. I've never had fajitas other than these so can't comment on how authentic tasting they are but for me I think they are delicious and well worth a try.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Worth the extra money

          Anadin Liquifast Capsules is a form of pain relief which contains 200mg of Ibuprofen. The box states that they can be used for relieving:

          -Backache
          -Rheumatic pain
          -Muscular pain
          -Migraines
          -Headaches
          -Dental Pain
          -Period Pain
          -Neuralgia
          -Fever
          -Cold and Flu symptoms

          I have taken these in the past mainly for the relief of headaches, dental pain and cold and flu symptoms so I can only comment on my experiences of the these capsules relieving these types of pain.

          This product is easily available in many supermarkets and pharmacies. I tend to pick them up whilst doing a weekly shop so I always have some in case of emergencies.

          They are packaged in a rectangular shaped silver box which also has the Anadin Logo on them making it easy to recognise that they are an extension of Anadin's existing range of pain relief options. Although this brand is more expensive than others such as paracetamol I find it a lot more effective. You have the option of buying a box containing either 16 or 20 capsules. From browsing online I know you can also purchase double strength capsules containing 400mg of Ibuprofen if you feel you need something stronger. I don't recall seeing these in stores so they don't seem to be as readily available, although maybe that is just bad luck on my part.

          The pop seal packet has the same logo as the box which is bright green making it stand out from other packets. I find this particularly handy if I want to grab some quickly and makes them easy to find.

          The capsules themselves are green in colour like the writing on the box and packet. I was very surprised by how small they are meaning they are very easy to swallow, even for those who don't like swallowing tablets. The advantage of the capsules is that they don't taste as bad as tablets and don't leave the powdery residue on your tongue which can be off putting.

          I believe these are meant to work quicker than normal tablets as they are mainly liquid they dissolve much quicker than normal Ibuprofen. Anadin's website states they work twice as fast. Whilst I think this is a tad over exaggerated I do find they work very quickly, roughly within about 20-30 minutes. I tend to take them as soon as I start to feel any pain so to nip it in the bud and these are very effective in quickly combating pain.

          The leaflet which comes inside the box contains information of possible side effects, most of which don't seem to be anything to worry about. These side effects include

          -fever
          -nausea
          -diarrhea
          -wind

          The list goes on but these are the main ones. I have never experienced any side effects and it does state that getting any is extremely rare so I personally don't find this puts me off the product.

          I would recommend this product to a friend and will continue to use these over any other form of pain relief.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good for Nerves

          Quiet Life Tablets are a herbal remedy which state they help promote sleep as well as relieve stress or anxiety. These were recommended to me by my driving instructor whilst taking lessons as I was a very nervous driver at the beginning of my lessons. However I have also taken them many times before if I'm feeling particularly anxious.

          They are packaged in a small brown tinted glass bottle which comes in a white box with the name of the product and a short description of what they are used for. The bottle is opened by a white screw lid cap. As the product is in a bottle it stands up easily in medicine cupboards or drawers and is always easily identifiable which is handy for me as my medicine cabinet is disaster zone making it difficult to find anything.

          One bottle contains 100 tablets which in boots costs £3.99 which I think is particularly reasonable, I have also noticed the same size of bottle is for sale in Holland and Barratt for £4.59 so it would be beneficial to shop around to make sure you get the best deal.

          The box it comes in also contains an instruction leaflet which explains that the recommended dosage is 2 tablets twice a day after meals and an additional 3 can be taken before bed if required to help promote sleep. I personally think this is too much and have never taken this amount as I don't like the thought of taking 7 tablets a day.

          I should point out I don't take these regularly. Usually I would take 2 a couple of hours before a driving lesson (or whatever other event I'm worried about) or alternatively if I am taking them due to sleep problems I take 2 about an hour before bed. In my experience they work quite quickly to calm my nerves and find the dosage I take works adequately so if you can avoid it I would try to use my best judgement at how many you need rather than following the instructions on the box as it does seem a little excessive.

          The tablets are an oval shape and have a pink coating on them. I think they are quite large so those who have problems swallowing tablets may struggle to swallow them but the pink coating tastes sweet unlike many medicines where the bitter powdery taste sticks on your tongue afterwards so I find Quiet Life tablets a pleasure to take.

          I do think these tablets work very well for calming my nerves and kick in quickly however I haven't found them as effective for helping to promote sleep although maybe this is because I don't take the dosage which is recommended. Luckily I don't have any serious sleep problems but I do think these are worth a try before going on medicated sleeping pills.

          Due to my experiences I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these to a friend if they were feeling stressed or anxious. However I have only given them 3 stars as as I don't think they are as effective for helping sleep.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Disappointing!

          I bought this conditioner with the Miracle Moist Shampoo (which I've also written a review about if anyone would like to check it out). This was the first time I'd ever used any Aussie products as I don't like spending a fortune on Shampoos or Conditioners, normally I'm of the belief that the cheaper products work just as well but on the recommendation of a friend I decided to give it a try. At the time of purchase it was 3 for £10 on most Aussie products in Boots which is quite a good deal considering that the conditioner alone costs £4.69 and the shampoo is the same.

          At first I thought £4.69 was quite expensive but on looking at the shelves in boots I discovered that this seems to be the norm for big brand shampoos and conditioners.

          I really don't like the design of the bottles on Aussie products. I feel there is far too much text on the bottle and it isn't the most eye catching design with it's white bottle in comparison with other products on the shelves which tend to be brightly coloured. However I'm sure Aussie relies on it's reputation for quality rather than catching people's eye in a shop.

          There is a large range of different shampoos and conditioners in the Aussie range for different uses including volumising, adding shine and for coloured hair. I chose the miracle moist as I have dry hair due to excessive straightening and blow drying. However I was torn between this and miracle shine so after choosing this I was secretly hoping it might add a bit of shininess at the same time.

          The bottle states that it contains Macedemia nut oil and has a clever antidote on the back which informs us that it originates in Australia and is used for infusing moisture. After some internet research I discovered that this type of oil is regularly used to moisturise both the skin and the hair. It is especially popular as a hot oil treatment.

          The product itself is white and like the shampoo it has a bubblegum like scent to it, although in the conditioner I don't feel it is too overpowering. The consistency is more runny than I was hoping for which could lead to some wastage.

          Another reviewer pointed out that the directions for use don't state that you should try to leave the conditioner in for a minute or so which I wouldn't have noticed but was surprised by as I would normally leave conditioner in for as long as I could which tends to be advised on the bottle but I followed the instructions as advised by Aussie and applied conditioner and rinsed immediately.

          It applied easily and rinsed easily. I only applied a small amount and felt it was adequate for my whole hair.

          After coming out the shower I dried my hair however I was disappointed by the results. My hair still felt dry and after a few hours any shine faded. The next morning my hair felt more unmanageable than it usually would so to say I was disappointed would be an understatement.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Won't be buying again!

          I bought this shampoo and matching conditioner on the recommendation of a friend. This friend has the most beautiful long, thick, shiny and healthy looking hair despite straightening her hair almost everyday and dying it regularly. I took her recommendation quite seriously as my hair has become quite dry recently so I was keen to try it.

          I had heard of Aussie products and seen them on the shelves but always thought them quite expensive and I was reasonable satisfied with the cheaper products I tend to go for. I chose to go to my local Boots store in search of this product where at the time there was a 3 for £10 deal on the majority of Aussie products.

          Although I had been recommended to get the Miracle Moist shampoo and conditioner I was overwhelmed with the range of different products on offer. I don't think this was helped by the busy looking bottles attempting to explain the benefits of each different shampoo and who it is best suited for.

          I'm not hugely impressed with the design of the bottle. I personally think it looks a bit cheap for what is meant to be a premium high quality product. Whilst the logo is quite recognisable as I said earlier I feel too much text has been crammed onto the front of the bottle. I also stated in a previous review about another shampoo that I liked that the bottle was clear allowing you too see the shampoo inside. This is especially useful after purchasing the product so you can see how much is left. Due to the design of this bottle you have to guess based on the weight of the bottle.

          The main selling point of this product is that it contains Macademia nut oil which helps add moisture to the hair. I knew very little about this but on the back of the bottle it gives a small antidote about the history of it.

          When using this shampoo the directions advise to make sure hair is soaking wet before use so after doing this I put a small amount of shampoo on my hand. Immediately there was a very strong smell of bubble gum which was a little overpowering. The shampoo was a creamy orange colour which was surprisingly runny. I had to put it on my hair quickly before it all ran off my hand and onto the floor of the shower. I find this a bit frustrating as it could lead to a lot of wastage. Other than that the product lathered very well and felt very luxurious. However the smell was still quite strong when rinsing. In spite of it being quite off putting it gave me high hopes that the bubblegum scent would stick once I had dried my hair rather than fading a few hours after washing.

          Over the following hours and days I have been disappointed in the results, my hair still feels dry and there is no shine to it. The bubblegum scent I described earlier never stuck around for long either. If anything my hair has become more unmanageable since using. Whilst this clearly works for some it had disappointing results on my hair.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Would recommend to make up novices

          My review might be biased as I am a loyal Rimmel customer and whenever I am purchasing make up I will immediately go to the Rimmel section in Boots. I always find their products to be of high quality and at a reasonable price. Saying that I don't usually buy any non essential make up (essential to me is foundation, powder, eye liner, mascara, blusher and red lippy) the only reason I purchased this was because I was given a boots £10 voucher as a christmas present and on top of this there was a 3 for 2 offer which I thought this would be a good opportunity to take advantage of so I decided to spoil myself as I had a few nights out on the horizon so I could experiment with my make up a bit more than I normally would.

          I would urge others to look into the 3 for 2 offers in boots which span over many different well known brands. For under £10 I got an eye liner pencil, lip gloss, my shadow stick and I got a free gift which was a beautiful deep red nail polish. I even had 50p left over on my voucher so I also bought a packet of chewing gum.

          Anyway back to the product. There are a range of different colours to choose from. My eyes were originally drawn to tempting turquoise as it was very vibrant but I worried that it would look a bit too heavy so in the end I was torn between bad bronze which is a dark brown color or bulletproof beige which is closer to skin tone but with a sparkle to it. In the end I choose bad bronze after testing both on my skin. Despite me choosing what I consider to be the safer option I do think there is a good enough range of colours to suit everyone for any occasion.

          I was tempted to buy 2. The paranoid purple may well have worked for a night out and I could have kept my bad bronze for everyday use but I decided to try one and perhaps purchase another if I was happy with the results.

          The price of one shadow stick is £4.49 which I think is very reasonable. If it had been much more expensive I'm not sure I would have chose to purchase it.

          Before buying this I had never used a pencil eye shadow, I barely had any experience using a pallet shadow either so it's safe to say I'm a complete novice when it comes to make up. It was only after reading reviews on here that I even thought about applying a small amount of the product and then blending it. If I hadn't read that I probably would have just coloured in my eye lid.

          One bad thing about this product is that there is no seal to open before taking off the lid, this meant that when I opened the stick to use it had noticeably been tested by people in the shop.

          I applied it by effectively drawing a line using the pencil just above my eyelashes and then using a make up brush to blend it. It went on well. I only needed to press lightly on my eyelid and only needed to go over it once. I was worried I was going to waste a lot of the product by having to go over and over my eye lid several times before any product was visible. It did look quite dark so I was pleased I had read the advice about blending. After blending the shadow was light brown and I was pleased that there was some very subtle glitter which added to the look.

          To finish off the look I applied some black eyeliner and mascara.

          I am very pleased with this and due to the simplicity of application I look forward to buying more shadow sticks and experimenting more with different looks.

          Well done Rimmel!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Like I said I wasn't overjoyed with the results but it does the job to a reasonable standard

          I bought Alberto Balsalm sun kissed Raspberry from my local Sainsbury's as it was cheap. Living with my parents, I don't normally buy shampoo as I tend to use whatever has been opened but as I was going on holiday I needed to purchase some to take with me. I was shocked at some of the prices for what to me seemed like a small bottle so the £1 price tag caught my eye. For a well known brand name and a large bottle I was surprised by how little it cost.

          There were many flavors and colours to choose from so I took my time sniffing each different one and reading over the bottle carefully. Each one smelled different and had a beautiful rich colour. The sun kissed Raspberry instantly appealed to me with it's fruity scent and vibrant pink colour. Although I must admit I did find it difficult to choose. I also purchased the matching conditioner which will be my next review.

          The product comes in a tall 400ml bottle which is clear so it makes it easier to see how much shampoo you have left. It also has a black lid on top and a flat surface to rest on allowing the bottle to stand upright without reducing stability as it empties. This combined with the simplistic label makes it look much more expensive than it is, very classy and eye catching.

          The bottle states that this specific flavor is for normal/ dry hair which out of all the products on offer I think best describes my hair. I have never really suffered from abnormally greasy hair but I was hoping this shampoo would make my hair look shiny and add a bit of much needed life to it.

          First impressions on usage were great. The shampoo came out the bottle easily. I gave a gentle squeeze and still only small amount came out. I was really impressed by the consistency of the product. It felt really thick and luxurious. Using this shampoo was an absolute pleasure. It lathered really well which added to the feel that my hair was getting a really good clean and the smell of raspberries was strong but not overpowering. At this point I felt really positive that I would be purchasing this again.

          After blow drying my hair, this is where it all went down hill. My hair felt dry and lifeless. The shine I was hoping for wasn't there. It looked just as dull and lifeless as it had before. Perhaps my expectations were too high but as I stated earlier I had been really thorough and I felt like my hair had been deep cleaned so I was quite disappointed in the results.

          One positive that I have noticed is the scent, my boyfriend even commented on how nice my hair smelled.

          Overall, maybe I purchased the wrong Alberto Balsalm products for me as I don't think it did much for my hair, when I'm looking to buy shampoo again I won't disregard the brand because of my experiences however I will certainly look at other options before considering this one again.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not for me

          Being a student I am always on the look out for a good foundation on a budget. If it's under a tenner I have more than likely tried it. I saw this foundation at my local B &M for £4.50 which I consider a bargain for a brand such as Rimmel were the products are good quality. According to Superdrug's website this foundation costs £6.99 however this will vary in other stores. If I hadn't used this product before I would happily have paid this price to try it as I believe this is quite reasonable.

          The bottle is very attractive. It comes in a tall translucent bottle with a blue lid which clashes with some of the more orangey shades of the foundation however as I chose the Ivory shade it looked very classy and expensive. To use the foundation there is a pump nozzle which I am personally not a fan of as there is too much wastage. It is really up to you how you apply the product but I tend to pump a small amount onto a make up sponge and apply directly from there.

          As I said earlier I chose the Ivory shade as it was the lightest shade the store had in stock however there are 10 shades to choose from which I assume is to ensure there is a perfect match for everyone. In hindsight Ivory is too dark for me. The consistency is very thick and even with only a small amount it feels very heavy once it has been applied. Although it blends very well leaving no unsightly marks around the neck.

          Once applied the foundation lasts well but it feels heavy and does not look natural. I can see that there are many positives such as a reasonable price and a wide variety of shades to choose from. However it is not for me.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good product

          I'm not big drinker especially when with family as I tend to end up on the floor after one glass of wine so this makes a great alternative. This is also good for those who are driving after a celebration or if your children are anything like my younger sister who likes Shloer served in a wine glass at Christmas so she can feel like an adult.

          There are many different flavours to chose from. My personal favourite is red grape however I often buy the white grape as my other half doesn't drink and this is his favourite. It comes in a glass bottle which states that it contains 750ml of sparkling juice. It depends on what size of glasses you use to serve it how many glasses you get. I use small wine glasses when serving it and get roughly 4 glasses per bottle. As I often buy this for celebrations I usually tend to buy more than one bottle at a time.

          The price per bottle varies from store to store. I buy from Tesco and a bottle usually costs £2 however there are regular offers such as 2 bottles for £3.50. I think this is an excellent price for such a high quality product. It is great if like me you are on a budget.

          The drink itself is delicious. However it is slightly bitter. It is very easy to drink and does not go flat if it is left sitting for a long period of time like many fizzy drinks do.

          I would recommend this product to a friend.

            I had been on the lookout for a woolly cardigan to keep me warm throughout the winter months and I spotted this whilst shopping in my local Tesco. I was looking for something a little longer than this originally but it was only £14 and looked to be good quality so I bought it.

            I have never bought clothes from Tesco before so I was unsure at first. Sizing is very generous as I bought this in a size 12 wheras in many shops I would need a 14. There were 2 colours to choose from which was a charcoal grey or tan. I chose tan mainly because I have too many greys and blacks in my wardrobe so thought this would be something a bit different.

            This cardigan is a great length for me and at 5'6 it can comfortably cover my bum. The belt is quite long and I tend to tie it at the back and leave the cardigan open at the front as it always reminds me of a dressing gown when tied.

            I find this extremely warm even in extreme temperatures. I often wear this under my jacket as an extra layer when it's snowing.

            One disadvantage I have found is that after a couple of washes it does tend to get bobbly which is quite annoying however they are easy enough to remove.

            Overall I do like this cardigan as it is stylish, versatile and warm.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Would make a great gift.

            I purchased this in the boxing day sales and I have been using it everyday since. I bought this for £55 in Debenhams however the price varies between stores and the bottle comes in different sizes. I chose the 50ml bottle. £55 is more than I would usually spend on a fragrance and if I hadn't been given money over Christmas it would have been out of my price range.

            I adore the packaging of the flowerbomb as it is very feminine and expensive looking. The bottle is grenade shaped with a silver lid. It comes in a large pink box with silver ribbon like stripes on it. The names of the fragrance is etched on black plastic on the front of the box. I feel the box is very large in comparison to the size of the bottle which I find frustrating as I tend to keep my fragrances in their boxes and keep in my bag to use throughout the day however it takes up too much space to do this.

            The fragrance is light pink and similarly colored to the box. As the name would suggest the smell is very floral and sweet but not too overpowering. As I mentioned earlier I don't carry the bottle with me so I was hoping it would last the whole day. I was pleasantly surprised as the fragrance lasted well and even the following day I could still vaguely smell the fragrance on my clothes and scarf.

            I have been using the same bottle for 6 weeks and have used about under a quarter of a bottle so I am impressed by how long a small bottle has lasted me considering how much I use.

            Overall this is one of my favourite fragrances which I would purchase again in spite of the price tag.

            Overpowering

            I purchased this product in Boots for around £37 although I can't remember the exact price as I purchased it a while ago. I personally think this is reasonable for the size of the bottle you get.

            The perfume comes in a small red box with the name written in gold and the bottle is similarly designed. It's difficult to describe the shape of the bottle as its not exactly round as it is flat at the bottom to make it easier to stand up. Although the bottle looks very attractive and expensive I find it awkward to use because of the shape of the bottle as it's difficult to grip when spraying.

            When spraying quite a lot comes out so one spray should be enough. With most perfumes I tend to spray all over however this makes the smell extremely overpowering so I wouldn't recommend this. The smell is very sweet, sickly sweet is how I would describe it. There is also a strong smell of vanilla which I find far too overpowering.

            The smell lasts for a long period of time. I would often spray perfume once in the morning and then once again throughout the day but I feel that once a day is sufficient.

            Overall this perfume is good value for money and if you like sweet fragrances then I would recommend this one but unfortunately this was just too sweet for me so I won't be purchasing again.

              Disadvantages

              Just ok

              As a lover of all things Samsung when looking for a new phone once my previous contract was finished I originally decided I was going to purchase a Galaxy S2, however after some research I discovered the Galaxy Ace which seemed quite similar to the S2 only for a cheaper price. So I purchased the Galaxy Ace.

              I was very pleased with the deal I got from Carphone Warehouse especially as I got a free Samsung tablet with my phone. The phone itself comes in a very small box which includes the phone, the battery which is packaged seperately, the phone charger, ear phones, instruction Manual, USB cable, an extra back which is white and a memory card.

              The phone contains all the features you will have come to expect in a smart phone including a calendar which allows you to add events and reminders. You can set alarms for this to alert you of any reminders which I liked as I would often use this for my previous phone due to my terrible memory however I have tried this twice on the Galaxy Ace and for some reason it doesn't alert me of reminders which I'm disappointed by. There is also an alarm clock which is extremely loud so excellent for waking you up in the morning. You can also create memos however I have never used this so I can't comment on this.

              One of the many criticisms I have of this phone is its internal memory. I was originally a little confused when I found a memory card in the box as I usually don't get one with the phone. However considering that When using the camera not even one photograph can be saved without inserting the memory card I now understand the decision to include it.

              The camera is excellent. Photos are very clear and the camera is very easy to use. Once the photo has been taken it automatically saves to the gallery however it doesn't show you the picture once it has been taken.

              One of the main features I use on any phone is the music player as I often like to listen to music through earphones. The music system is fairly standard and sound quality is excellent. Like with most phones you can carry out other functions on the phone whilst listening to music such as testing and browsing the Internet. Songs can be changed easily by dragging your finger downwards from the top of the screen showing the task bar. The volume can be changed using the buttons at the side. I also like that the earphone fitting fits most standard headphones so if you lose the earphones that came with the phone you don't need to specifically purchase Samsung ones.

              I am currently trying to get my phone replaced or repaired as I have been having problems making phone calls. On many occasions my phone will not allow me to make phone calls or cuts me off when I'm on the phone.

              Other negatives I have noticed with this phone is a slow processor and poor battery life. I very rarely go a day without having to charge my phone.

              Overall I am not overly impressed with this phone however it does have many positives.

              Would recommend

              I've bought this product many times for the past few years and I can't think of any disadvantages that I can tell you about. This is an excellent product which I would highly recommend over any other lip balms.

              The product costs about a £1 however this varies depending on where you buy it. I think this is very reasonable considering the high quality of it. It comes in a small round tub which can easily fit into your pocket or bag. However despite its small size this product seems to last for months for me. The lid comes off very easily as you just twist and pull. Sometimes it does stick and it takes a bit of elbow grease to get it off.

              The texture is a jelly like substance which you put on using your fingers and smooth over your lips. It can feel quite greasy on your fingers so I always like to wash my hands after use.

              The product its self can be used instead of lip gloss or lipstick to give a nice shine and keep them moist throughout the day. However I also use it when my lips are chaffed and this product works wonders and keep them moist and feeling really soothing on sore lips.

              I would recommend keeping this in your hand bag at all times and consider it one of my beauty essentials.
