      Advantages

      • "It helps you to lose weight"

      Disadvantages

      • "It is harder to mix than other flavors"
      • "It has got a horrible flavour"

      This tastes horrible

      WHAT IS IT?

      Chocolate flavor Slim Fast milk shake. I buy it in a tin that contains powder to make the shake at home with fresh milk but the chocolate flavor is available in a plastic bottle also that is ready made and you can take it out with you.

      THE TASTE

      I do not like the taste of this very much because the chocolate is not natural in taste. It is not rich and I do not like the way I can taste the milk through the chocolate because I use very low fat milk so it does not taste very pleasing. I think it tastes like a drink you would take it you were ill and had to build up your strength after that.

      HOW DO YOU USE IT?

      You mix the powder with milk and stir it until it has all been mixed up. You can stir it with a fork but I use a hand held blender instead of that because the powder is very hard to mix in and I do not like that small little bits of powder float on the top of my shake with the chocolate flavor because that does not happen with the other flavours.

      You can put the milk and powder into a big blender also and add some ice to make the shake a little bit thicker to drink.

      WHAT I THINK

      I do not like this Slim Fast and I do not think it tastes very much like chocolate anyway. It is a very sickly flavor and I think the texture is different to the other Slim Fast flavours also, it does not feel as nice to drink and I do not think it fills up my appetite so I want to eat quite quick if I choose this flavour.

      It is harder to mix than the other flavours and I think that is a shock because they all look like the same powder but I think there is something in the chocolate one that makes it stick together more while you are mixing it.

      I do not buy chocolate Slim Fast very often because I do not like it as much as I like the others. The taste is not pleasing but more important than that it does not make me feel full up so it is not very good as a diet shake.

      Advantages

      • "There are no advantages "

      Disadvantages

      • "It is small and does not cook evenly "

      A very bad cooker

      WHAT IS IT?

      An electric cooker that is made by Zanussi.

      THE DESIGN

      This was the cooker I used for the last 4 months while my kitchen was being designed. We have had the kitchen enlarged so could not use our gas cooker but the kitchen design company loaned us this electric powered one to use while they was working. It is not a very attractive cooker I do not think and the ceramic top does not look very good quality and has got a smoked finish that I do not like.

      The inside of the oven is not very big and I was happy when I could use my new gas cooker because that has got a capacity of double. There are 2 shelfs and they can be moved or removed. It takes a long time to get hot and I dislike that.

      WHAT I THINK

      I did not like to use this cooker because the oven and grill were very slow and I thought it was hard to control the temperature for cooking my food. The hob is very strong and it burned some of my saucepans because I am used to cooking on a gas hob and not one like this, this cooker is alot faster for food on the hob than my gas cooker is but I do not think that is advantage all of the time because I thought it was hard to make stir fry and simmered pot meals on this hob.

      I do not like the way my food cooks unevenly in the oven and I had to turn big pieces of meat or pies many times to make sure it cooked all the way through and did not burn. That is not very good and made me unhappy because I spoiled meals in this oven and I usually am a good cook.

      The grill is slow and does not cook even so I did not use it very much. There was a funny smell from the grill when I used it also and it did not make my food taste funny but I did not like it.

      I liked how easy the hob was to clean and the sides and front of the cooker also because it is made of steel so was easy to wipe and didn't smear very much unless I used too much cleaning spray on it.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      I would not like it if this was the cooker that I had to use all the time. It was a shock to see that it costs £450 and I think that is a very lot of money because the cooker is not very high in quality.

      Advantages

      • "The texture is creamy and pleasing "
      • "It tastes very nice "

      Disadvantages

      • "It makes me want to eat my dinner earlier "

      A very nice flavoured slimming milk shake

      WHAT IS IT?

      Milk shake powder in banana flavour from Slim Fast. It comes in a tin with a scoop inside it so you can measure out the powder before you mix it with the milk.

      IS IT EASY TO USE?

      Slim Fast powder is very easy to use because it blends in very quick with the milk. You can mix it with a fork but I use a hand blender because that makes it go thicker and creamy. I have used my big blender before and added some ice cubes so that they crush into the milk shake and that makes it taste thicker also but it is a lot of work for a milk shake I think so I do not always do that.

      You have to measure milk out and scoop the powder in and mix until it is all dissolved.

      THE TASTE

      I like the taste of this because it tastes a lot like cheap banana milk shake and not a dieting product. It is a little bit too sweet I think but the aftertaste is addicting even though it is not very nice sometimes. I like the creamy flavour and the way it tastes like banana sweets also.

      WHAT I THINK

      I like this flavour of Slim Fast very much and am happy because when it is mixed with the milk it is filling when I have it for my breakfast or lunch. I think it is most filling for breakfast because at lunchtime I want to eat something that is a proper meal because I am busy through most mornings.

      The flavour is quite rich and that is satisfying, I drink mine slow as if I was eating a meal but if I am in a rush I can drink it quickly also because it has got a very nice flavour. The texture is very nice also, it is creamy but it is light also and does not sit very heavy in my stomach like the protein drinks that I have been trying at the gym do.

      I like the way they make me feel full up but when I have had a banana Slim Fast at lunch I always have to have my dinner early because by the evening I am very hungry. When I was ill last week I could not eat but I had some Slim Fasts and other meal replacement drinks also just because I needed to have some calories, my favourite was the banana Slim Fast when I was ill because the flavour satisfied me but it was not too heavy.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      One tin of banana Slim Fast costs £5.95 and you buy it in supermarkets and chemists.

      Advantages

      • "It is filling "
      • "It tastes nice "

      Disadvantages

      • "It is expensive "

      This tastes very nice

      WHAT IS IT?

      A Slim Fast shake that has got a mocha flavour.

      HOW DOES IT WORK?

      This is a ready made shake that comes in a can so you can drink it while you are out. I do not think you can buy it in a powder.

      You drink one serving of Cafe Mocha Slim Fast to replace your breakfast and your lunch and then eat a healthy dinner. It is easy when you use the ready made cans because you can change between flavours with every meal.

      The shake tastes better when it is cold so I always put mine into the fridge and drink it when it has had time to chill. You can drink it straight out of the can or pour it over ice in a glass to make your shake even colder and the ice makes it feel more filling also.

      THE TASTE

      I think this tastes like the small bottles of cold Starbucks coffee. It is very thin but I do not care about that because I do not like thick milkshake at any time. The taste is of coffee and you can taste the milky part also, it is not a very sweet coffee taste but it is pleasing and not harsh. I can drink it at any time and I know friends who do not drink hot coffee who like to use this flavour of Slim Fast.

      WHAT I THINK

      I use Slim Fast only occasionally but I like to buy it for when I do not have time to sit and eat my lunch or if I am too rushing in the morning to prepare breakfast. I buy the cans because they will keep fresh for many months if they have not been opened but I do not use a tin of powder quickly enough and it goes stale.

      I shake the can before I open it but it is not a carbonated drink so does not fizz as it is opened.

      I am very happy with this flavour because it does not taste like a diet shake and that is good because I have been trying some protein shakes that my gym are starting to sell and they all have got a funny aftertaste but this has not. I feel quite full when I have had a Slim Fast mocha but my husband said I should go to Starbucks and buy myself a hot coffee that tastes better for the same number of calories and I think that he is right because I think Starbucks coffee is filling also.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      A can of Cafe Mocha costs about £1.80 and I think that is very expensive because it is more like a drink than a meal like the other flavours of Slim Fast. It is filling but I would like it to be more like a refreshing drink than to have it instead of a full meal.

        Advantages

        • "It keeps the seat belt off my daughters neck "
        • "It looks very pretty"

        Disadvantages

        • "It is very hard"

        Hello Kitty for the car

        WHAT IS IT?

        A seat for your child to sit on in the car while they are being driven somewhere. England has alot of laws about children in cars so children have to sit on a seat until they are a certain height or age. My daughter has got this one and it is Hello Kitty and made out of pink plastic.

        THE DESIGN

        The design is pretty but I would have wished for her to choose a seat that had thicker fabric because I do not think this looks very comfortable. It is made out of very hard plastic and where she sits there is only a thin piece of fabric that is decorated with a design of Hello Kitty, it is not thick enough to make the plastic comfortable to sit on but my daughter does not care about that.

        I think it is a very attracting seat and it is pretty so that a little girl can choose something that is feminine instead of a black or red seat.

        WHAT I THINK

        I like this seat but think I should have insisted that my daughter chose one that was softer for her to sit on. I am happy with the strength of this and with the way I can do the seat belt to fit under the side of the seat to protect my daughters neck from it rubbing.

        My daughter is very happy with the seat and I am glad for that, she dropped ice cream on the Hello Kitty printed fabric so it was a good thing that it is fixed with velcro so I could remove it to be washed. I washed it by hand and dried it in the air and there was nothing damaged by me doing that. The plastic has got a little bit scratched but I think that has happened when my daughter has dropped the seat when she has swapped it from my car to my husbands.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        My daughters Hello Kitty car seat cost £13 and I think that is value to keep her safe when she is riding in the car.

        Advantages

        • "It is easy to use "
        • "The TV has got a bright and sharp picture"

        Disadvantages

        • "There are no disadvantages "

        I am very happy with my Technika TV

        WHAT IS IT?

        An LCD TV that has got a DVD player built in and has got Freeview channels also. The size of the screen is 19" so it is a good TV for a kitchen and that is where I have got mine.

        THE DESIGN

        I am very happy with this TV because it is slim and the stand is slim also. I have put it in the corner of my kitchen and it does not take up very much room.

        It is black and the DVD goes into the side of the TV so there is no sign of a DVD player. I think the TV looks attractive and modern.

        IS IT EASY TO USE?

        This TV is very easy to use and the remote control makes it easy because it has got buttons that are easy to see and to understand also. You turn the Freeview on with one button and then it is easy to find the programs that you want to watch.

        The DVD player is easy to work also and you can do all of the things that you can on a normal DVD player that is not built to be inside the TV. I like the way the drawer slides out for the DVD because it is a strong slide and that makes it feel like it is high quality.

        THE PICTURE

        I am happy with the way the picture looks because it is sharp and clear. I have a good ariel and that helps but when that was knocked down in a storm I used an indoor ariel and the picture wasn't as good but it was better then I expected.

        The TV turns up loud in its volume but when it is very loud it vibrates a lot and that makes the speaker sound like it is not working effectively. I do not turn this TV up loud and have it on mute sometimes and am happy that mute is silent with not any buzzing.

        WHAT I THINK

        I like this TV very much and I am happy because we got it for a very cheap price when my husband bought it at a closing down sale. It has worked always and I am not very good at working TVs and DVDs but I have been able to work this and I could as soon as we had it.

        There are not very many Freeview channels to interest me but my children watch them, I watch the news and a music channel sometimes also. There used to be a reminder service that I set for when a program was going to start but that stopped working and I think it is a setting I changed by mistake.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        We paid only £70 for this TV and I am very happy with that and think it is value for a good TV that is nice to watch.

        Advantages

        • "It stops my Kindle getting scratched or dusty"
        • "It looks nice"

        Disadvantages

        • "There is no wrist strap "

        A very good Kindle case

        WHAT IS IT?

        A case for a Kindle Paperwhite that has got a zebra print. It is not leather but it looks like it.

        THE DESIGN

        It is designed to look like a book and you slide the Kindle into it. You open and close it like a book because the front cover flips open and you close it when you are not using your Kindle like the cover of a book.

        The case is very bright and I like the way the black and white stands out. The inside feels like soft velvet and it is black so looks very smart next to the zebra stripes pattern. There is a pocket inside the front cover and that has got zebra stripes, it is a very thin pocket and I keep my list of books that I would like to read in there and my library card also.

        WHAT I THINK

        I like my Kindle Paperwhite and want to protect it so I am very happy with this case because when I close the cover my Kindle is enclosed and I know it would not be damaged. It is not a strong case so if I dropped my Kindle or put something heavy on top I think it would still break but I am very careful so that would not happen to me.

        I carry my Kindle in my bag alot and that was a reason why I had to get a case and I had bought this already before my Kindle was delivered to me. I like the way it closes because it is magnetic like other cases I have for but it has a clasp that you flip over instead of the case closing invisibly with the magnets inside the case, the clasp is nice I think and makes the case look more professional. My Kindle has not got any signs of damage and I put it into the case as soon as it came to my home from Amazon.

        I am happy that the case has got a shape that lets me be able to reach all the buttons on the Kindle and the cut out for the screen is the right size also so I can see all of the screen and access all of the functions. There is no wrist strap and that makes it look different to the cases I am used to with my old Kindle because all of them had a strap and this one looks bare without it.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        This case for the Kindle Paperwhite costs £14 and I think that is value because it looks very good and it is keeping my Kindle safe.

        Advantages

        • "The foam is comfortable"
        • "They are high quality "

        Disadvantages

        • "They are too large for my hands "

        Good exercise for your hands and your wrists

        WHAT ARE THEY?

        Hand grips for improving the strength of your hands or you can use them more if you are building muscle in your forearms.

        THE DESIGN

        These are made by Golds Gym but I bought them at my gym (it is not owned by Golds). They are a big spring with handles, you squeeze the handles with one hand grip in each hand and it is the resistance that makes your hands stronger.

        The handles have got a foam cover so they do not hurt your hands but the handles are long and I think they are made for the hands of a man. I bought them for my husband but I use them also because they are in our shared gym space at home.

        HOW DO YOU USE THEM?

        You do as many repetitions of squeezing the hand grips and releasing them as you would like to. The resistance is very strong and I am going to buy a smaller set for me because I like to use them but they hurt my hands after I have used them for a short time. My husband has told me that they are comfortable for him to use and he does slow repetitions and speed squeezing also for his stamina.

        They are harder to use than you think and they make your wrists ache, I think you have to have strong hands to use these hand grips and I know they make the muscles stronger because I can feel it when I use them at regular times.

        WHAT I THINK

        I think these are very good hand grips and I am pleased with the quality of them, the spring is very solid and there is no damage to the foam and that is good because my husband uses them every day and I have used them alot also.

        They are too large for my hands and it is recent that I have realised this but I am happy I have used them because I know if I invest in a smaller pair that I will use them. I would like to get them in black also because I do not like the pink and purple ones that are available for ladies.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        The hand grips cost £7 and I think that is value because they have been used by both of us and are effective for exercise.

          Advantages

          • "The voice is clear "
          • "It does not get me lost "

          Disadvantages

          • "It takes a long time to connect to satellite"

          A new sat nav company

          WHAT IS IT?

          A sat nav that is made by a new company called Moov.

          WHY I BOUGHT THIS ONE

          I had my sat nav stolen out of my car with other items when I had stopped for petrol. I am a beautician and was on my way to drive for a long way so that I could make up a bridal party, the wedding was that day and this was not a trial run so I went to Argos immediately and brought the cheapest sat nav just to get me there.

          Moov was being promoted and this model cost me only £69.

          HOW DO YOU USE IT?

          It is touchscreen and you go to the menu that comes on automatic when you switch it on. You can spell in any address in England or search through using a post code. If you have got to look for an address in Wales or Scotland you have to change the country and I do not know if that is usual but I think the sat nav should be whole UK without having to change it like that.

          It takes long to connect to the satellites and start giving directions but the sat nav finds the address and gives it recognition quickly so I know I have typed in the details correct.

          The sat nav has got a female voice and it is pleasing to me because the voice is clear and it does not sound like it is being bossy. I am Italian and sometimes English place names sound very strange to me so it is important that a sat nav says things clearly so that I can understand properly.

          I have never been lost when I have used this sat nav even when I am trying to get to somewhere that is unknown to me or a wedding that is been held in the countryside. The sat nav does not tell me to do silly things also like the sat nav that was stolen who told me to make a u turn on a highway once.

          There are things you can change in settings and they change how fast you reach where you need to go or make it so that you don't have to go on motorways. I never have changed this because I like the way the sat nav gets me to places and there is no need for me to change it.

          I think this is a very good sat nav and it is alot cheaper than a Tom Tom sat nav so I have kept this even after my insurance company offered to get me a new Tom Tom to replace mine and I made them pay me cash instead.

          Advantages

          • "Last for a long time for cheap money "

          Disadvantages

          • "There are no disadvantages "

          I like these slippers very much

          WHAT ARE THEY?

          Slippers that you buy from Asda. They have been sold for many years in leopard print but some years the colours and designs change. This year the slippers are made out of soft jersey fabric and are in colors that are more natural to real leopard print.

          THE DESIGN

          The slippers have a back less design that I like and the top of my foot is covered. The sole is padded and thick, the top of the slipper is not so thick but it is padded also.

          My leopard print slippers were brought this year and they are natural leopard print colour. There were leopard print slippers that were faint blue when I brought my pair of slippers but they were a different design and not so pleasing for the shape of my foot.

          COMFORT

          I think these slippers are very comfortable and I have brought over 10 pairs since Asda started to sell them. They stay comfortable for many months and can be washed in the washing machine but the padding goes thinner every time you wash them. I wash most of the pairs of slippers 4 or more times before I throw them away and they do not need to be washed more because I wear them indoor only.

          WHAT I THINK

          I like these slippers very much and when I know I will need slippers soon I buy a pair with my shopping because I would hate it if I had to buy new slippers and could not go to Asda.

          I am happy with how long they last for and how soft the sole is because they are cosy to wear and they give warmth to my feet. They are in size ranges instead of shoe sizes and I have got them in medium because my shoes are size 5.

          ANYTHING ELSE

          The price of these slippers is £6 or £8 and that changes between those prices sometimes. This year they are £6 but they might change the design again and the price might go up again.

          Advantages

          • "They are inexpensive to buy"
          • "They taste nice and fruity"

          Disadvantages

          • "There are no disadvantages"

          To help keep my children healthy

          WHAT ARE THEY?

          These are chewable pastilles for children. They are a vitamin tablet that contains a lot of vitamins that your child might need to keep healthy. These pastilles contain omega 3 also and that is important for brain developing and concentration.

          THE PASTILLES

          The pastilles are quite big but that is ok because they can be chewed, I would not give a child anything this big if they had to swallow them.

          The flavor is orange and lemon and I think the taste is very pleasing and I can tell get my children like to have their vitamin tablet in the morning. The taste is of the fruits and it is citrus and juicy in flavor.

          I think they are too chewy but I have tried two only and my children like to chew them. It does not take very long for them to chew the whole pastille.

          WHAT I THINK

          I think these pastilles are alot better than asking for a child to swallow a tablet and I like that they are sugar free also because my children follow a low sugar diet and I would not want them to have a sweet like this every day if there was sugar in it.

          The vitamins in the pastilles are A,B6,C, D and E and they have the omega 3 also. That is a wide range I think and enough for it to enhance the vitamins that they get through their fresh food diet. My husband thinks I do not have to give these vitamins to our children because they have a healthy and varied diet but I think I would like to make sure they have everything they need and this is a very good way to do that.

          ANYTHING ELSE

          There are 30 tablets in every box and they cost about £5. That is 1 month of supply because children take one pastille only every day. I think they are very good and I am going to buy them again for my children.

          Advantages

          • "The bars are not filling "
          • "Not a very nice taste"

          Disadvantages

          • "They help control my appetite"

          They do not taste nice

          WHAT IS IT?

          A sweet chocolate bar that is to replace one of your meals. It is filled with vitamins, minerals and has green tea in it to help calories be burned faster.

          THE CHOCOLATE BAR

          It is caramel flavoured but I do not like the taste or the heavy consistency of the bar much. It sticks to my teeth and the inside has got a texture that is chewy but hard to chew at the same time. It does not please me and makes me feel like I could not eat the whole bar sometimes.

          It tastes little bit like caramel but I think there is a bitter taste also, it does not taste like real chocolate and I do not know what the inside of the bar is supposed to taste of because there is a little bit of a caramel taste but there is a lot of taste of something else also that I can not tell what it is.

          DOES IT WORK?

          It is for meal replacement so it should help you lose weight if you are careful with the rest of your diet but I think it is a bad message to tell you to replace a meal with a chocolate bar.

          It has got 220 calories in the bar and it does not fill me up for long and not until my next meal. I would want to eat 200 calories of pasta and some green leaves and that would give me a real meal and natural nutrients for the same amount of calories that are in the Maxitone caramel bar.

          ANYTHING ELSE

          I have buying my Maxitone caramel bars in Superdrug and they cost £1.99 each. I think that is bad value for a chocolate bar but it is cheaper than if I ate a meal so the value depends on if you are using the bars as they are supposed to be used.

          Advantages

          • "Nice recipes that are easy to make "

          Disadvantages

          • "There are no disadvantages "

          A good cook book from Slimming World

          WHAT IS IT?

          A recipe book from Slimming World, it contains recipes that can be ready in 30 minutes or less time and they are all lower fat recipes that will help you to lose or maintain your weight.

          THE RECIPES

          There are over 60 recipes in this cook book and I have made quite a lot of them because I like to cook. They are separated into sections like starters, meat courses, salads, fish, poultry and each recipe is laid out in a traditional way with the ingredients and then the method. I think this is best because I do not like the way a lot of recipe books give the recipe like a story now so you have to read nearly all the way through to find the ingredients.

          The dessert section I do not think is very good and even if I was on a diet I would want to eat a proper dessert and not one that has been made to be low fat or calorie like the ones in this book.

          I have many Slimming World cook books but I do not follow a slimming world diet and I have saw that they repeat the same soup recipes through their books and magazines, this happens in this book also and most of the soup recipes are in other books I have.

          WHAT I THINK

          I like this cook book and have used it a lot because the recipes are very easy to read and they use simple language that is easy to understand even though English is not my first language. There are a lot of photographs in the book and those are good because I can follow the recipe easier by looking at the photograph to see what my meal should look like in the end.

          The recipes are all quite fast but I think a lot of them take more than 30 minutes when you count in the time it takes to prepare them. I would not rely on any of them being completed in 30 minutes but it is close I think.

          I like the way most of the recipes use the ingredients I have already in my home and even the ingredients that I don't have can be easily found in local shops of supermarkets.

          I like also that when I cook from this book my whole family can eat the meals because a lot of cook books give only meals that adults will eat and do not realise that children like to eat with their parents also.

          ANYTHING ELSE

          This book is out of printing now so it is hard to buy, you can see it on Ebay sometimes but it is a hardback so postage costs are very high. Sometimes libraries have Slimming World recipe books.

          Advantages

          • "They help my body feel better after exercising "

          Disadvantages

          • "The taste is not very pleasing"

          I think they work a bit

          WHAT IS IT?


          A sachet of powder that you mix with milk to make a healthy milkshake that is for you to drink after exercise. I have used it for 2 weeks after my gym gave out sample sachets in the banana flavour.

          They are available in other flavours also.
          HOW DO YOU USE IT?


          Mix the powder into cold milk and stir it very well. This drink is for putting health back into you after you have exercised so it is best for you to drink it within 20 minutes of exercise. My gym is 10 minutes away from my home so I make mine as soon as I get in and drink it straightaway.


          THE TASTE


          It doesn't taste very nice but it's not horrible either. It tastes of cheap banana milkshake and I think there is an aftertaste that is not pleasing. It is a low fat milkshake so it's not creamy but it is not thin like I thought it would be.


          I think this is easy to drink but I like to drink it as immediately as I have made it because it tastes very bad if the milk is not cold.


          DOES IT WORK?


          I think this milk drink makes a little bit of small difference to how quick I recover from working out, I do not go to the gym as part of my routine so my body is shocked by a workout sometimes I think and that is why I feel better when I have restored my body with vitamins and minerals.


          My husband works out more than I do and he takes protein shakes but has said that when he looked at the ingredients list of these ones they weren't as strong as his and are more for people who do not do a very hard workout.


          I will use up the sachets I have got left and I might buy some more because I feel better now that I have been drinking these milkshakes instead of just water or energy drinks after I have been to the gym.

            Cod liver oil capsules

            WHAT ARE THEY?

            Cod liver oil capsules that are made by Health Aid. There are 60 in a bottle and you have to take one every day so that is a 2 month supply.

            THE CAPSULES

            They are big and shaped like rugby balls like cod liver oil capsules always are. They feel soft and are easy to swallow because even though they are big the shape is comfortable for swallowing.

            They are suited for vegetarians also because gelatine is not used to make the outside of the capsule.

            WHAT I THINK

            I am very happy with these cod liver oil capsules but I do not say that I am loyal to any brand. I bought these only because I had run out and the lady in the chemist recommended them to me.

            They do not give me a funny taste on my breath and they do not taste bad. I drink a glass of water with my capsule to make sure it is washed down properly but you do not have to drink very much with it if you don't want to.

            I do not know if I am healthier because of taking these capsules but I don't know this whatever brand I take and my health is good so they are not doing any harm to me.

            I am happy with the way the pot is easy to open but when it is closed I know that it is keeping my capsules safe and away from the air.

            ANYTHING ELSE

            A tub of 60 cod liver oil capsules made by Health Aid cost £9.99 and that is rough the same as what I pay for the same amount of capsules from other brands.
