      overall this juicer makes great tasting juices

      I have had this juicer for almost four years and have been using it daily for about a year. It makes juicing quick and simple. Most fruits such as apples and pears don't need to be peeled or chopped as the chute is wide enough for whole pieces to fit which makes juicing fast.

      It is very easy to assemble and use - the parts fit together very well. It comes with two orange magnetic keys that are used to tighten/loosen the blade to ensure that you don't cut yourself. Once assembled all you need to do is add the fruits and vegetables then use the pusher tool. Juice comes out instantly so make sure there is something to catch all of the juice!

      I believe the product has been made with good quality materials as it is strong and has lasted a long time however, as the juicer is white, the inside has become stained orange perhaps from juicing carrots.

      It can be quite time consuming taking apart and washing the product after each use. It can be put into the dish washer but I would not recommend this because it has scratched of the silver part that goes round the top of the juicer.

      The blade spins very fast which enables the juicer to juice hard raw fruits and vegetables effortlessly - on a few occasions whilst using this juicer it has become clogged which caused the blade to stop spinning if this happens be sure to switch it off from the mains before clearing the blockage to avoid injury.

      It product doesn't make too much noise whilst operating so it can be used in the mornings and late evening without too much disruption.

      The quality of the juice is very good; the strainer ensures that no seeds, peel or pieces of fruits or vegetables get into the juice.

      The product comes with a manual and a juicing guide book with recipes for making fruit and vegetable juice. This is helpful if you are new to juicing and need some ideas.

      This juicer is a centrifugal juicer so it doesn't juice vegetable such as spinach well. When I use this juicer to juice spinach, it comes out in the trash as almost whole pieces. If you would like to juice leafy greens I would recommend you to buy a masticating juicer which "chews" and squeezes the fruits more.

      The two main features that I don't like about this product is that the pusher has a specific shape and if you put it in at the wrong angle it gets stuck and the spout is too low down so I can't put my tall glass under it.

      There is a newer version of this model called the Jack Lalanne express power juicer which I would have definitely purchased instead if it was available at the time because the chute is rounded and wider so the pusher won't get stuck and larger fruits and vegetables can be used.

      Tips for using this juicer:

      You can put a plastic bag in the trash collector to make cleaning the juicer quicker and easier
      Use a washing up brush to clean the strainer instead of a sponge because it cleans it faster.

      If you are going to juice citrus I would recommend peeling of the pith as this can make the juice taste bitter.

      I would recommend this juicer to anyone who juices once in a while because it is less expensive than other models and does the job well.

        amazing bra! Boosts confidence

        If you feel your boobs are too small but don't want to undergo costly surgery, this bra is definitely for you! It will make you look and feel like your breasts are three cup sizes bigger!

        The bra is cleverly designed to enhance your figure and offer support to your breasts.

        The bra is smooth and silky so if you are wearing a thin top you won't see bits of bra poking out. I believe the best feature of this bra is that it makes my boobs look NATURALLY bigger and more rounded.

        Some under wire bras are quite uncomfortable but this one is lined with material so it doesn't feel like its digging into you

        This bra is available in different colours and sizes and is relatively inexpensive- I bought mine whilst it was on a really good deal

        What I love about this bra is that the straps are also removable so you can also get the benefits of this bra whilst wearing strapless dresses.

        Disadvantages

        Super stylish, strong handbag

        I love my Ted Baker Handbag. The design is stylish and sophisticated and has "no ordinary designer bag" and "You've really got a hold on me" written on it which I think gives the bag a personality almost!

        I have the large black one with the white bow and writing. I chose this one as it matches very well with all my outfits. It is good as a school bag and a shopping bag because it is very strong and spacious - so I recommend it to anyone like me who likes to carry everything around with them!

        It's also really easy to clean with baby wipes or a damp cloth, so if you buy the white one you don't need to worry about it getting stained.

        My advice to potential owners of this bag:
        Keep it away from HEAT! And direct sunlight as this temporarily changes the shape of the bag and makes it floppy!

        fantastic for dry lips

        When leaving the house I ensure I have my keys phone and VASELINE!

        During the winter months my lips tend to get very dry and chapped really quickly which is very uncomfortable and unsightly!

        The pocket size Vaseline is perfect. It is a good size - better than carrying around a big tub of the stuff! It soothes dry lips and also protects them. It leaves my lips feeling soft and shiny.

        its handy to carry around because you can also use it to moisturise dry hands.

        The product is inexpensive and lasts a long time as only a little bit of the product is needed at a time.

        the only thing I don't particularly like about the product is that the tin can sometimes be really hard to open!

        I also like the other products in this range such as the aloe Vera and the cocoa butter one which is also very moisturising and soothing

        great product

        I love lynx products! I was so happy when I saw this product in the shops and bought it without hesitation - and I was not disappointed. It is absolutely perfect for an everyday scent when you don't feel like wearing an expensive perfume. The scent is refreshing and not too harsh and the scent lasts a long time.

        I like the packaging- the white can, black lid and pink details; it grabbed my attention straight away. Also the packaging is recyclable! It is great for taking to the gym because it is small and compact and also as the lid has to be twisted to reveal the spray nozzle it so I can throw it in my gym bag knowing it won't leak out and ruin my clothes

        I would defiantly purchase this product again as it is reasonably priced and smells great. It is also available as part of a gift set.

        producduct that improves gut health

        Bowel health is vital for overall health. Taking Lepicol is a great way to keep your bowels healthy. It is especially helpful if you suffer with constipation, diarrhoea, or IBS.

        What is in Lepicol?

        Lepicol is a product that contains Psyllium husks, Inulin and Probiotics. Psyllium husks are a fantastic source of dietary fibre and can be used to cleanse the colon. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria. In the gut we have both good and bad bacteria it is important to maintain a good level of the beneficial bacteria. Inulin is another type of fibre that also has a wealth of health benefits such as supporting a healthy circulatory and immune system.

        How does it work?

        Psyllium husks are a good source of fibre, fibre is essential in preventing bowel problems such as constipation by speeding up the excretion of waste products from the body.
        Psyllium husks work by absorbing liquid to add bulk to the stool to enable it to be passed easily.

        Why I use this product:

        * I tend not to get enough fibre in my diet and Lepicol helps me to reach the recommended daily intake of fibre (18 grams for an adult)
        * It contains probiotics which helps my digestive system
        * It helps to maintain regularity - before I'd get frequent constipation
        * It's a 100% natural remedy containing no harsh chemicals/ingredients

        Directions for use:

        For an adult add 1-2 heaped teaspoons to water or juice, children 0.5-1 heaped teaspoon and follow with another glass of water or juice.

        My tips for using this product:

        * Add it to orange juice! The husks make it taste orange juice with bits
        * For best results drink plenty of liquids.
        * Drink it as soon as you mix in the husks otherwise the husks will swell up making it harder to drink.
        * Rinse the glass/cup straight after drinking it to prevent any remaining husks sticking to the glass
        * Be sure to read the label before consuming the product!

        Advantages
        * It doesn't taste bad- in fact it doesn't have any taste especially if mixed with juice
        * Doesn't cause an uncomfortable urge to go to the toilet
        * Its husks instead of the powder so it doesn't make the drink taste slimy
        * Can be given to children
        * Relatively inexpensive
        * Lasts a long time

        Disadvantages
        * Some people may take a while to get used to it
