I absolutely love opening up my christmas gifts and finding body shop luxury hidden inside. This shower gel was part of a basket that I received along with some other strawberry products and I immediately lifted the lid to smell a delightful strawberry sweet smell. I used the product as a shower gel and it was an excellent product. The application was easy and it didn't all come out at once and get wasted as seems to happen with so many bathing products. I was able to get as much out as I needed by gently squeezing the bottle as necessary. The consistency is that of a gel rather than a cream and it felt luxurious to apply and that it was really cleaning my body, whilst leaving a beautiful sweet scent. I used it with a body shop strawberry body cream which after using both, left me feeling thoroughly clean, refreshed and smooth. A lovely product.
I must say to start with I am a huge fan of the body shop, both the ethics behind the store in general and also the actual products. They are luxurious and do make you feel very treated and pampered. I was therefore delighted to receive this lotion as part of a set for my birthday. However despite loving coconut and enjoying that delightful scent of holidays, when I opened this product I found the lotion very overpowering and artificial. I did not enjoy the scent at all. I persevered with the product and it was indeed a shower cream / gel although I would definitely describe it as a cream rather than a gel. The consistency was very runny and I did not think that the product was an ideal skin cleaner, more of a luxury product. You need to be careful when applying too as it comes out of the bottle very quickly. If I had liked the scent, perhaps I would have been more positive about this product but for me, its not one to recommend.
I bought this book following all of the furore in the press and more interestingly in the playground whilst waiting at the school gates. I avoided it at first, thinking it was just going to be one of those dull black lace type novels which were all sex and no story, however gave in to find out what it was all about. Immediately I was hooked. The characters are universally appealing. There is the innocent, intelligent but lacking in confidence Ana who is easily warmed to by the reader and then on the other hand, the dark, brooding, mysterious but rich Christian with his dark past, again this helps the reader to warm to him. This really is a novel for the ladies. The whole fantasy of a rich gorgeous man sweeping this average girl off her feet and then his longing for her to love him. Well we can all dream! Yes there is loads of sex to spice things up and make things interesting and the graphic nature of this may be surprising for some but this is all done by also exploring the intense emotions surrounding the relationship which extend the eroticism even further. A lovely novel. Definitely worth a read
I got this laptop in March this year and it has been absolutely brilliant. I am no computer expert but was able to easily set it all up in a short space of time and without calling for any help. The life of the battery has been excellent - a problem I have often had with other models but this one lasts for many hours before giving the dreaded battery running out warning. The laptop is hard wearing and durable, ably tested by my two young children, its even suffered being dropped without any scars! The screen size is perfect and the resolution is excellent. I have had to do quite a few long typing projects and the whole layout and keyboard have made this very straightforward. My kids particularly enjoy the integrated web cam which they have used to upload some dance moves! I have found it very easy to connect to external devices such as cameras and printers and there are ample connection ports. This was an excellent value buy. I really couldn't recommend this model enough and have nothing negative to say about it. Fab product.
