This is a fun, pretty, girly looking shower gel - pink with glitter isnt to everyones taste but it's so fantastic that Im more than willing to ignore that. It does remind me of candy floss in looks and smell, which adds to the fun refreshing feeling. Its like a childs excitment of going to a fun fair every time I get a waft. Might be a bit sweet for some but I love it. The gel works up a nice froth without being unmanagable and leaves me feeling clean, refreshed and energised. One of lushs biggest advantages is that it minimises the chemicals used in its products. I have sensitive skin that reacts to a lot, even the other lush shower gets, but I have no problems with this one. The biggest disappointment is that lush only sell it for christmas, so if you don't stock up enough then it can be a real pain. Most of lush stuff appears expensive but it lasts for so long that it is comparable or better than cheaper versions. A large bottle will last me 3 - 4 months.
Whip stick is a chocolate flavoured lip balm in a small metal tin. You can smell the chocolate as soon as you open the tin. My biggest problem with this lip balm is the packaging. I hate lip balms that come in a tin as you either have to get covered in the stuff using your fingers or look really odd rubbing the tin against your lips. It also can get dented which in a couple of cases has made it totally impossible to open the tin. Also you need fairly strong, nimble fingers to hold the base of the tin & twist the lid off - not good if you're all thumbs or have movement difficulties. This lip balm would be much better off in a twist up tube. The balm itself is very solid and a little difficult to get out when it's cold, but warms up pretty easily. You have to be a bit careful carrying it in a jeans pocket as it can warm up to the consistancy of stodgy liquid - it wont escape the tin but I have used more than I bargined for. It has a nice texture to wear and isnt too greasy, which I find with a lot of lip balms. It keeps my lips in fairly good condition, as they get dry and split very easily. Its biggest advantage is that it doesnt contain petrolleum - petrolleum actually dehydrates the skin whilst leaving a waxy layer which makes it appear moist. The more you use it the worse this affect. This means that whipstick does what its supposed to (ie hydrate lips) rather than just pretending. I use it a lot (maybe once an hour or so) and a tin will last me about a month, which makes it a bit expensive compared to some other lip balms, but its worth the price to take care of myself properly
I have used lush products for years now and I never get tired of what they dream up. I've lost track of how many years Ive used American Cream, but I have no intention of changing to something else. It's just like a vanilla milkshake in looks, texture and smell. I love the waft of vanilla and honey as it comes out the bottle. Whats lovely is that smell then stays on my hair even when its dried. It feels like my hair softens as I rub it in and it leaves it in the most fantastic condition. I've never found anything that makes my hair so soft and silky. My friend has incredibly thick, dry, brittle and heavily dyed hair - one application and she could hold crimping tongs to her hair without it snapping and breaking (admittedly she couldn't crimp her hair as it was too soft!!). This keeps my hair in great condition, regardless of what I throw at it. My hair looks silky, soft and in good condition. It may appear expensive, as does a lot of lush stuff, but it lasts ages (a large bottle lasts me around 4-5 months) and is well and truely worth the money. also nice to know that it uses the minimum chemicals possible and is as environmentally friendly as possible.
This is a slimline camera which feels a bit like taking a photo with a credit card. It is a little bit slippy to hold on to and it is worth adding a wrist strap on as its saved it hitting the floor a few times. Despite the small size and delicate appearance it is a robust camera. It comes in different colours - I have the black one which has a nice finish and a smart appearance. It doesnt have a view finder, which I think is a shame. Although the screen is a good size and good quality, it is very hard to see in daylight. Although most screens can be hard to see if its bright, I used it outdoors in January and it was hard to see. Indoors its great. The features themselves are fantastic. There is a huge choice of different settings, which works for and against it. as an amateur I found confusing to remember whats what and choose which setting. Mostly I leave it on the artificial intelligence, which is amazing, but when I accidentally changed this I struggled to reset it without the manual. The AF tracking is great fun to play with! Picture quality appears excellent on a computer, but I haven't tested a print quality yet. Overall, it takes a bit of getting used to, but once you have this is a fantastic camera to have.
I love this TV! Had it 5 months with no problems. Its easy to set up and get to grips with the different features. Fantastic clear voice technology option where speech is set louder than music etc, but other options like cinema also works well. Theres lots of self-explanatory choices for picture quality and brightness. HD picture is fantastic. Some good power saving features: it has an intelligent sensor which adjusts brightness according to changes in level of sunlight in the room. Easy to use remote without lots of strange unnecessary buttons. Menus are easy to navigate. I've not had any problems connecting with DVD recorder, sky or a games console. Looks good on a glass TV stand with the clear plastic strip running round the edge of the TV making it a feature not just a huge lump in the corner of the room. Sound and picture in sync. Can't think of a bad word to say about it. Definately worth the money.
