      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Give it a try!

      I've always been a fan of the vimto stuff, I just love the taste! I find a lot of diluted juice nowadays makes you quite dry after drinking it but this doesnt.

      I'm a bit picky with drinks but I do drink vimto more than anything. I love the fact that you can get this out of poundland for £1 and asda has the fizzy vimto at £1 quite often so you're not spending loads on the juice.

      Ive never been a fan of blackcurrants on their own , but i enjoy a lot of diluted juice with blackcurrants in (especially this)

      One of my cats seems to be fond of the diluted vimto as well.. If i ever pour myself a drink and a bit runs down the side of the bottle then my cat licks it when i turn my back to get some kitchen roll to wipe it down. I think she approves of vimto also!

        Great buy for my cats & hope everyone elses cats enjoy it too!

        I have to say this was a really good buy for my cats. For a long while i just had the one of these. You can arrange the track in different ways and even get different balls for the cats to play with in the track. It keeps my cat amused for hours. You see them bouncing about around the track hitting the ball then chasing it along the track.

        Later on down the line i got a joblot of 3 of the same track just different brand name to make one big track - you could do that with the same branded ones too . I have other cat it accessories like the massage one and the cat treat maze. I keep the massage one by a corner of the track so the cat can use a few things at once. Cat it senses products can be put together to make a sensory activity centre.

        I bought the motion activated flashing balls for this track as my cats love to chase flashing lights or laser pens so thought id give it a go. Being one large track in the living room it keeps my cats amused for hours & i made it so theres no dead ends on the track so the ball just keeps going round and round. With the motion activated ball being pretty lightweight - it speeds around the track a lot faster than the original ball so even though they had hours of fun with the original ball and track - since upgrading it to a bigger size and faster ball - my cats act like kids running mental in a park!

        The track itself trains your cat to be well alert and well exercised. Because they have to be so alert and sense where the ball is going to be when they pounce at it and they chase it about the track, its good at training their hunting skills. Cats love things that move and that they can chase and this is ideal for that.

        I would recommend this product, great way to keep your cats active and playful!

        I dont buy a lot of chewing gum, but the only one I will buy is cherry menthol flavour airwaves.

        I like the fact that the have a strong taste to them and it lasts a while and doesnt go away within a few minutes like a lot of chewing gum, and also keeps the breath smelling fresh. Not just that , they're good for helping with a blocked or stuffy nose which really does come in handy for me as i get a stuffy nose a lot with sinus problems and hayfever.

        It also states on the back of the packaging that they are suitable for vegetarians which is good as some products dont state whether they are or not.

        Airwaves do have different flavours of chewing gum, so if you aren't a fan of the cherry taste you can try some of the other flavours instead.

        I would recommend!

        Great entertainment and great to pass time

        Ever since i was in primary school ive always been a pokemad. My mum had got me the gameboy games and it was a challenge to get me to put them down! I watched episodes whenever they were on tv and even got into the cards!

        I love the games! A lot of people dislike the fact that theres a of new pokemon added to them now but I just see it as a bigger challenge and more fun. Its also good that they made different types of pokemon games , gives the fans a wider range of choice.

        Being 21 now, I'm still pokemon daft! I watch the episodes, play the games and collect the stuff like figures, teddies, slippers, bags, towels etc

        I always seem to get zoned into the games, movies and episodes. With the episodes I'm always left wondering whats going to happen next, what characters are going to be in it and who's going to battle?

        So much thought and time has been put into pokemon to make it enjoyable. The thought put into the different characters alone must have taken a lot of time.

        Its certainly something I doubt I will grow out of, its great for kids and keeping them entertained but it just goes to show its not just kids that it lures in!

        I've been using olbas oil for years now! My mum used to always put it on a tissue for me when i was a younger and it alway worked fast at clearing a stuffy nose!

        When I was younger I found if someone had a cold, I always got it! I found if I used olbas oil & covonia cough bottle then my colds would vanish a lot quicker than usual as when I had colds if I didnt treat them they lingered for ages and brought the mood down. Then I would be feeling well and healthy and could get back to my every day activities.

        Its also a very handy thing to have if friends or family visits and they have a cold. A lot of people dont like to take tablets to clear colds or flu, I have a lot of allergies so I try to avoid tablets as much as possible.

        I always keep one beside my bed now. Its got a powerful smell to it and there are different ways you can use it. I only really ever tried the method of putting it on a tissue as that worked perfectly for me, and it even helps when my hayfever or sinuses decides to play up. Ive tried several nasel spray, allergy tablets and a few other hayfever relief things but I find this works the best to help me breathe better.

        The good thing is if you dont want to use the original olbas oil for your children they have an olbas oil for children which isnt as powerful. Its also suitable for vegetarians to use as its just a mixture of essential pure plant oils!

        It says you only need 2-3 drops at a time - so at that a 10ml little bottle will last a long time!

          I got this product in a swap a few months back. I dye my hair and like to keep it in good shape as dye damages it and found this product to be really helpful .

          I have fine hair and I find a lot of products make my hair look greasy. I was impressed with this as when i applied it to my dry ends my hair didnt feel greasy or horrible but instead smelled nice and clean, was a healthy shine and didnt feel greasy at all.

          I decided to experiment with this and use it on all my hair then give it a bit of heat to style and I was really impressed. My full head of hair looked really healthy! I find the serum also smoothes the hair down which is really good if you prefer it straight. Usually when i dry my hair it goes really frizzy and like a birds nest thats been turned orange which is really not attractive , so to find a product that removes the frizz as well as work on the dry ends and produce a shine is great. It even made my hands soft after applying with my fingers when I couldnt find my brush at the time.

          The great thing is you dont even need to use much on the hair, so the product will last a long time. Another good point is it is not a expensive product like a lot of hair products nowadays like bedhead stuff etc.

          Although I dont think you can get it with avon anymore as I noticed they had the daily shine one instead but I've seen a few people list them on ebay under £5. I'm not sure how many advanced techique dry end serums there are but the one I use is the daily result dry end serum.

          I would recommend!

          amazing product and hours of fun!

          I have to say this was a very good buy. I have two fussy cats!

          Before I bought this for my cats I was having a lot of trouble trying to get them to eat wet food as all they wanted to eat was dry food but wouldnt drink a lot of water. I was concerned because they wasnt drinking a lot of water and refusing to eat wet food. The wet food / water makes it easier for them to digest the dry food.

          My cats were eating crunchies / treats far too fast and making themself sick before I bought this.

          I noticed a big change afterwards. My cats found it easy to use and knocked a few crunchies or treats down at a time making them eat a lot slower an less at a time and they started eating wet food!

          One of my cats decided to try to eat them by jumping up the sides and leaning over the top so i just put a bit of cardboard to block her from doing so (smart kitty!)

          They use it all the time, my cats love a challenge . Its easy to adjust to make it easier or difficult and its also good fun watching your cats tryin to get treats down and waving their paws about in the wrong direction *haha*

          Keeps my cats eating a healthy amount of crunchies per day with their food and sometimes an added treat and since getting this not once have my cats been sick due to eating crunchies/treats too fast.

          So if you want to make your cats work for the crunchies, or if you feel your cat is eating too any or getting sick like mine was then give this a try it may solve your problems as well as give you a laugh watching them

          Great mental exercise for cats

          Disadvantages

          great product

          After trying the bubblegum one - which did last me a good while - I then decided to get the blueberry one to try. It applies the same as the bubblegum one and smells as yummy! They do have different lipbalms to choose from not just bubblegum and blueberry. You can also get these lipbalms in sets instead of singular, which would make a good stocking filler. . They're in a lot of shops and are not expensive to buy and well worth the money paid!

          A lot of lip balms I've used ive had to reapply shortly after application as they dont last that long on the lips and shortly after the lips feel dry, but with theses lip balms i find my lips stay soft for quite a long time and dont have to apply lipbalm constantly which is really good and I tend to bite my lips a lot which makes them feel really rough and horrible but i find if i use this lip balm it makes my lips feel a lot better and softer instead of really dry looking.

          I use a applicator brush to apply mine- I suppose some people may use their fingers but I would rather use an applicator but they're cheap to buy and you usually get a few in a pack when buying in applicators or you can bulk buy online.

          I always keep one in my bag now for any time im out and forget to apply lip balm and feel i need to.

          I hope they make more scented lip balms as id definately be interested in trying them too!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            overall good product

            I'm not really a big chocolate fan but do like a little bit of chocolate every now and then. I seen these reduced in asda to £1 and got myself a packet as I fancied a little bit of chocolate at the time.

            The packet is resealable which is good as I definatey couldnt eat them all at once. Theres a sticker to reseal the pack on the back of the packaging. It is very easy to peel off and has instructions on it! Although it does have a downside. The label on my packaging lost its sticky after reopening it so could do with a better resealable sticky label.

            I do like Twirl, so found these enjoyable as they are just minature sizes of the original twirl. Although I could only eat about 4 or 5 bites at a time it means that if i was to eat them to myself , the packet will last me quite a while as there are a reasonable amount of the twirl bites in the packet.

            They're very soft and easy to eat and great for a little snack.

            A plus side is they are suitable for vegetarians and state that on the packet. Ive came across a lot of products that dont state whether they are suitable for vegetarians or not so its nice to see that Cadburys do.

            Disadvantages

            Wouldnt use anything else

            I have really sensitive skin and a lot of allergies. I started using these fragrance free wipes a few years back after previously trying other ones which I took allergy reactions to. Since starting to use these baby wipes I wont use any other. They're great for the skin and I've been using them for years now.

            Not once have I ever broke out with an allergy. They contain aloe vera which keeps the skin soft.

            They're not expensive to buy unlike a lot of other baby wipes . The flip lid on these is very easy to open and close.

            It states on the back of the packet that asda is against animal testing and funds research into alternatives which is really good for those who dont like using products tested on animals like myself.

            These are suitable for new borns and hypoallergenic .

            If you do have sensitive skin and a lot of allergies like myself, I would recommend to give these a try!

            happy with them overall

            I wasnt so sure about these at first because they were so cheap but I hadnt had salted peanuts for ages so decided to give them a try. We used to buy peanuts any time we had new year parties or halloween parties and added them to the buffet but they were a lot more than just 27p per packet and went down pretty fast when there was a lot of people that liked salted peanuts.

            The fact that the packet was rather plain and basic didnt bother me in the slightest - It was easy to read and thats what you want in packaging.

            They did have quite a bit of salt on them but not too much , but definately ideal if you fancy a salty snack.

            The downside though is the amount of fat per bag, 98.4g fat is quite a lot. So if you do get some, dont eat too many!

            I only eat a small amount of peanuts at a time out of a bag so a 200g bag will last me about 4 or 5 snacks.

            For a price of 27p for something enjoyable I really cant complain.
            Will definately add it onto my list of things to add for table snacks if I have a few friends over.
