      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very good value for money, very natural.

      I love lots of Avons bits. They're very affordable and regularly have offers which I wait for.
      However, many of they're products although fairly good quality, particularly the mascaras I find significantly lower quality than major highstreet brands.
      This product however I would say was an exception. It's gives a very nice natural colour and lasts ages!
      It comes with a pad to apply with although I always thought it goes on much more evenly with a brush!
      The colour also stays on quite a long time but I would say it would need reapplying through the night.
      The colour I would say as it's quite natural is more suitable for the day time, avon do a very similar product, bronzer again in pearls which is more suitable for night.
      The pearls are a range of colours in the pot, however, when the colour is applied it goes on an even colour.
      Recommended.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very cheep and cheerful phone, reliable and easy to use.

      I brought this because it was so cheap and all I'm really interested in is that any phone I own is reliabe, has a decent bettery life and can perform and receive texts and calls.
      This phone is all of the above for a very reasonable price. It's also not a bad looking phone although is definately a bit behind the modern phones.
      Although this phone is great value for money I feel you are definately compromising a little on design.
      I ended up giving the phone to my nan and purchasing a couple of models up.
      It's ideal for an older person as it is very reliable and has a good battery life. It is also very simple to use even for someone which has never used a mobile phone before and is not touch screen.
      So if your looking for something cheep and cheerful, easy to use this isideal for you.

        Disadvantages

        A good value for money camera.

        I purchased this camera for a trip to south africa.
        For the modest price it cost it was a very good quality camera and I took some lovely pictures with it (even winning a comptetion) but the picture quality definately isn't professional.
        I found especially the picture was fuzzy at night, although the camera does have settings allowing you to use the camera at night. both night vision and flash.
        The camera memory itself wasn't great but I was able to very cheaply purchase a memory card, san disk, which enabled me to take as many pictures as I wanted, excessive amounts, without running out of memory. The camera was also very quick to start up. From seeing an image or animal I wanted to snap to getting the camera out of my bag and turning it on.. I was able to still catch many animals.
        I would recommend this camera. It's affordable and is good value for money.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good quality attractive handy sized modestly priced laptop.

        This isn't the first net book I have had. I previously had one and after having a netbook I definately would never go back to having a full sized laptop.
        They have all the necessary functions but all compact and convenient, not to mention cute.
        for me one of the main reasons for purchasing a netbook also was the price. I don't feel any laptop I've sampled was any better than this netbook.
        It is also a very attractive netbook, I purchased it in purple and regularly have been complimented on it!
        Content wise the netbook doesn't come with windows office and this is something you have to buy yourself. I also cannot put backgrounds on my computer which I find quite annoying but it has all the necessaries. It also has bluetooth meaning you can bluetooth things straight from your hone or camera onto the laptop which is always something I look for when purchasing a computer.
        I would definately recommend this netbook. It is very good money and very good quality for money.
        It would be especially useful for anyone at university or with a job with requires traveling and taking your laptop with you andit is a good size to fit in your handbag.
        Size wise I also don't feel your compromising. PRehaps if you have poor eyesight it may be necessary to have a bigger computer so you can have a bigger screen but for me I certainly find the screen is very good quality and I don't have any problems reading anything, apart from on the odd occassion when I have had the picture not completely fit but by resizing the screen I have overcome this issue.
        Definately recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Suitable for someone with a modest budget looking for a phone which does the job!

        £10.50 a month contract with vodafone for 2 years gained me this phone.
        Everything seemed well.. I'm not one for fancy phones and going on the internet and playing games on my phone. But it did all the necessarys and had a good quality camera.
        The memory was pretty poor but due to it having bluetooth I was able to regularly upload any photos easily onto my computer so this wasn't a problem.
        The main problem I found with this phone is it's touchscreen and sometimes the screen literlly doesn't respond and therefore the keys are also locked so there is no way for me to get into my phone.
        I then have to take the phone back off.. which took me a long time to be able to do, and take the battery out in order to start the phone again and usually this mean't the screen would start working again.
        Sometimes the phone will also go black or white on the screen and reset itself...
        I went into the vodafone phone shop and told them the issue.. presuming they would fix it but turns out once they'd sold the phone the staff really weren't interested in helping at all.
        I was told it probably just needed updating. I don't see how that could have caused it, I feel like they were palming me off.
        They told me I could go home and update the phone myself which I don't have the facility to do. Or they would do it for me, but I would have to give them my phone for 10days to send away and they wouldn't give me a phone to borrow in the mean time. I was disgusted. They were very unhelpful, and if putting the updates on was really that easy I don't see why they couldn't do it in store.
        I never updated the phone and a year later it's still working but does have funny turns.
        With respect to the appearance of the phone I found it very attractive for it's price bracket and of the lower costing phones it definately is one of the best. It's not too big and looks more expensive than it is.
        Everything on the phone I found very satisfactory apart from the touch screen. I have also found it quite hard wearing as I have dropped it several times, not responsible for the phone playing merry hell as I was already having problems, and the case hasn't cracked.
        All the basic settings on the phone are very good. The messages can be viewed both individually or in conversation format which I found really useful. The phone also came with several games.. which I had to delete due to lack of memory but none the less there were a selection of fairly good quality games. The message memory is also not too bad once I deleted all the games which free'd some up.
        All in all I would say it is a cheap phone and it's not bad. You get what you pay for. I would recommend it if you have a low budget. Prehaps its vodafone staff which are the problem not the phone.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Very attractive soft pleasant smell, lasts along time without reapplication

        This is by far my favourite perfume of any on the market. It has a very pleasant what I would describe as a soft musk smell. I have been using it since the age of around 14 and am now in my 20s and still use it.
        I always get complimented on this smell.
        The perfume is not just for young people though, my nan has used it and it also smells very nice and suitable on her.
        It's very affordable and one spray is noticable. It also lasts along time without having to reapply.
        Ghost offer various different perfumes but this is the nicest I would say they produce.
        It's not a fruity smell at all so if thats the sort of smell you like this isn't for you, but for everyone else I would recommend you go into a store and try out the smell. I always feel very attractive when I'm wearing this perfume.

          Disadvantages

          This mouth wash is very effective but is quite strong in comparison to other mouth washes.

          I have been using this product for a while now. I found it took a while to get used to. It definately does leave your mouth feeling really fresh but when I initially started using it I found it to be very strong and to cause me some discomfort. I found that it gave me a burning sensation so I would prehaps not recommend this to people who are really sensative.
          I persisted with using the product due to the fact it did leave me with really fresh breath much fresher than I have found with other mouth washes on the market. I have found that my mouth has become adjusted to it and I now suffer no discomfort when using it.
          I would definately recommend trying this product as it is very affordable and I achieves good results. I certainly would not go back to using other mouth washes.

          Good quality charm, very attractive. Woudl recommend going into a pandora and having a look.

          I love this charm. It's one a many adorable animal themed charms pandora have on sale. It's a great addition to anyone bracelet!
          Pandora charms are very good quality and this one is no exception. I have never had any probelms with discolouration with any charm I have purchased.
          They are also very durable. I wear my pandora bracelets equipt with charms on a daily basis and have done for over 2 years and have yet to damage any of the charms or for any of them to suffer noticable wear.
          I have brought many charms both off the internet and in shops and have never once had an issue and had to This a very good quality and attractive charm and I would recommend it to buy for your own bracelet or a present for a loved one!
          It's also very affordable being at the lower price range of the charms pandora offer.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Definately try this product. It's good quality and gives a very natural look which washes off easily

            I first tried this when I was around 16 and I'm still using it years later. I have failed to find anything which gives you such good instant colour which you can wash off the next day and not have to go out in day light looking like an orange.
            For nights out this is perfect. The colour looks really good, and you can apply layer by layer so get a really dark all over colour!
            I have also used this colour in the day time, applying less, and you can get a really nice natural colour and even skin tone.
            One thing which is a con about this product is its wash off so if your out and it starts to rain or your in a club/pub and you spill a drink down yourself the colour WILL run. However, I have never found this a major issue as at night you can't really tell, it's more when you wake up the next day and look at your legs that they're streaky!
            All in all if your looking for instant tan which you can wash off this is a really good product and the best I have found! You can apply it as heavily or lightly as you like and the colour is a really nice tan not orange!
            It's useful for both you body and face! I often use it instead of foundation.
            If your a paler person, like me, it's also great. I'm very pale and use the darker skin tone product and it still looks natural and allows me to be instantly alot darker than my natural colour rather than having to build the tan up.
            Definately try this product!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A definate must try!

            When this nail varnish came out I was fascinated by the idea of it. Despite being told by my neighbour it was useless and doesn't work I was convinced by a super drug sales assistant that using the black Barry M crackle nail effects over orange nail varnish could give me a leopard print effect!
            I brought first pot. It worked a treat. All you have to do is literally use it like a normal nail varnish and hey presto nails just like it says on the lid! I also found that blowing the nail effects helped it crack better. For the price this is seriously good quality and is a really quick and easy way to get funky nails. You'd pay alot for similar in a salon. It dries really quickly so I often use it if I'm in a rush before I go out, and looks great after you've painted over it with a top coat... goes from matt to really shiny and lasts ages!
            I have gone on to buy blue and pink and sadly white is always sold out where I live but alsorts of colours have now been brought out.
            They also look good if you apply different coloured nail effects over each other. And it's not just for the youngens either. I'm in my 20s and my mum loves it! Definately recommended. Good value for money!
