Introduction: My parents always used dysons when I was a child and I remember most of them, when I got my own flat I needed a new vacuum cleaner. My flat is rather small, so I did not want a large vacuum cleaner, when I saw this I knew it was the most sensible. I have always liked dysons as the technology used seems to be very advanced. I will now go into more detail on the product and explain why it is very good. Price: I bought mine from curry's instore for £250 when it was on offer, this product has been on sale for £300. It is available from lots of places, looking online you can now get this much cheaper than the price I paid. It is worth the money though and it will last you a good few years. A good investment that will last.Look out for cheaper deals though. Design: It is designed like a ball, the vacuum cleaner is moved when you pull the vacuum end. It works similar to a henry (which i also own). The design is very small and compact, and all aspects can be removed. The Dyson comes with lots of attachments which you can put on the end of the 'nose hose'. Its customiseable which was a big feature that appealed to me. overall I would say the design is very subtle, yet it looks very stylish. The Dyson DC38 is also very lightweight and is easy to carry around, if you live in a house, this would be easy to carry up and down the stairs. Any good?: This works very well, the suction power is very strong. I use it on my carpets every-other day and i get a lot of dirt up which I didnt even know was there. I am amazed with how much dust can accumulate on my carpets every week and this product really helps keep my flat looking clean and tidy. I also use it on the tiles in the bathroom and the kithen and it works well on these too. The attachments which are given are very handy when I need to get rid of cobwebs on the cieling and getting behind the cupboards etc. I can't fault this product. The attachments also come in handy when I want to clean my car, everything about it is simple and effective. Emptying the Vacuum is easy, the compartment which collects the dust comes apart and you can empty straight into the bin. Overall: I would recommend this product to people who own smaller houses or flats. The compartment that collects the dust is small, but perfectly fine for smaller floor spaces. I am very happy with this product as it hides away nicely in my cupboard. I have suffered no issues so far with this and that makes me happy! I would get another one of these in the future if this one was to pack up. It is very practical and stylish, It has to be the best looking vacuum cleaner I have seen on sale. This product gets 5 stars from me! thanks for reading my review on the dyson dc38, keep an eye out for this product if you are on the market for a new vacuum cleaner. jlaker1992
Introduction: I take a wide variety of vitamins and supplements because I feel that they are essential to keeping fit and healthy, helping me out when I miss things from my diet. I have always taken vitamin c tablets and I used to buy them from holland and barret, untill I noticed I could be paying much less! I saw these in tescos and I have been taking them ever since, they are chewable and I have found these to be very good. Price: For a pack of 90 usually costs around £2, which makes them good value compared to other branded tabelets. They are available only at tesco ( for obvious reasons) at regular periods these will be in 3 for 2 offers. I usually stock up on these when tesco do offers. Keep an eye out. The bottle is very eye catching on the shelf and you can instantly stop this product. Any good?: I have been taking these for over a year now and I have not had any health issues. They are very easy to take, just pop them in your mouth and chew. Having enough vitamin c in your diet is very important as if it gets low. I much prefer to take vitamins as chewable versions as I am not a big fan of swallowing tablets. These are perfect for my needs. 90 supplements last around 3 months! Which is handy as I am not constantly having to stock up. With winter on its way, it's a good idea to get some of these to help your immune system fight off any troubles! Overall: I would definately recommend this product to you, it's best suited it adults. It doesn't cost too much and will last you a fair while. Worth a try. These get 5 stars from me, perfect addition to any diet, better being safe then sorry! Thanks for reading my review, I hope it helps. Jlaker1992
Introduction: I love to have a bath after a long day at work or after playing sports. I feel much more refreshed and calmed when I have a bath instead of a shower. I have always used this particular bubble bath as it my favourite. So I thought it was time to publish a review on the product! Price: I usually pay around £2 a bottle, but recently it has been on offer for 99p at tesco and in other shops, you get a 500ml bottle which should last you a while as only a small amount of it is needed to get a good bath going. Shop around as prices vary drastically from store to store. any good?: A small amount in the bath will fill the room with a relaxing smell which gets you in the mood for a long and hot soak in the bath. This is called a bath soak, so the amount of bubbles it produces is not as much as your typical bubble bath. You get a decent amount of bubbles and a fresh smell. I always feel my muscles relax as I hit the water, when I use this stuff I can stay in the bath for over an hour, which usually leads to very wrinkly fingers and toes. I would recommend this to any age as it calming and a good alround addition to your bath. Although there may be no actual healing power in this bottle, mentally you feel better and this will lead to your muscles feeling better also. Overall: I would definately recommend this to you, it's got a nice scent and you only need a little bit in your bath. The bottle will last forever. Shop around for the cheapest deal as prices can vary. This typically comes In a 500ml bottle, but I have seen it in a large 1 litre bottle at Costco! This is definately worth a try if you are into baths. I give this 4 stars as it's just a decent alround product.
Introduction: I have collected many different after shaves and eu de toilets over the years, and this one has to be my very favourite. In the past I have tried a smelly, then tried other ones, but with Armani code I keep on coming back. I am now on my third bottle and I am still in love with this! This product is on sale in all places that sell after shaves. Price: You will pay roughly £30-35 for a 50ml bottle of this. It is similarly priced too other products on the shelfs. You can also buy larger bottles, yet these are more expensive. I usually buy online as the cheapest deals tend to be online, buying this in the uk is actually cheaper than getting abroad on holiday. Don't be conned at buying this duty free, as you may lose out on hard earned money. Shop around! Bottle: The bottle is black and bendy, it's unusual and looks really nice. It stands out and looks very manly. You Are not able to see the liquid though, which is annoying. To check how much is left in the bottle I usually hold it up to the light or against the window and you can slightly see through! Smell: This has to be one of the nicest Smells around. I am not a professional smeller, buy I guarantee you will like it. It's strong and manly and stays on the skin almost all day, when I spray this on in the morning I can still smell it by late afternoon. It's a good smell for the day, yet also for a night out and I feel people will notice that I smell nice with this. It makes me feel more confident. The smell is a little bit sweet, yet not feminate in any way. This is the perfect one for me! Overall: This will make a great present for your man, or dad etc. good Xmas present and I guarantee they will love it. The design is great and the bottle looks nice on the bedside table. The bottle sprays well and you only need a couple of sprays to get noticeable smell all day. This product will get 5 stars from me, my favourite.
Introduction: I got a new laptop earlier this year and felt extremely protective over it as it cost me a small fortune! I needed something to protect it when travelling too and from work. I had a look in a few shops and Targus cases seemed to be the best value for money and I had read decent reviews on them in the past. Cost: I paid £9.99 on ebay for a brand new case, it arrived quickly and I put it straight on my laptop. I have seen these for sale in shops for £15-20! So it is worth shopping around to find a decent price, online would be best. Any good?: It fits laptop perfectly, lovely and snug. It has protected it from those little scratches that you can get when the laptop is carried around unprotected! It also had stopped my laptop being damages when I dropped it out of my car one day! I am greatful I bought this as it could have cost me a lot to repair. Another good thing this case does is stop dust getting on the laptop! When I finish using my laptop I put this case on and then it's protected. Overall: Although this may be expensive for what it is, I would say it is essential to have if you own a laptop! They could sVe you a fortune in repairs and will stop all silly scratches which can happen on a day to day basis. Recommended to all ages, worth having if you travel abroad etc. this gets 4 stars from me as the product is perfect, but the cost is a little too High for what it actually is.
Introduction: I have recently had some problems with my ears, they always seem to be partially blocked and occasionally I struggle to hear. I went to the doctors to see what they could do and they said I had no wax build up and that it could be internal blocking. They prescribed me this product from the pharmacy and I picked it up and have been using it for over 2 months now. I can honestly say it has worked a treat and my head feels much clearer than it did before. Price: You can pick this up from most pharcmacies for around £3, you can also buy it online at amazon and similar shops. It is widely available and easy to get hold of I have bought a few online as I find it is the cheapest place to buy it. Have a look around and you will see the difference in price. Bottle: The bottle contains roughly a months worth if sprays, you are directed to spray this up your nostrills 2 or 3 time as day. You are also advised not to use the bottle for more than 28 days as this is for hygiene reasons. The bottle is easy to spray and you get a good amount up your nose! Does it work?: This works as a decongestant and it definately degongested my head! I had a slight cold and it helped me to breath better and also started to help unblock my ears. The feeling of the spray up your nose is strange, but after a while you get used to it and it just becomes a normal part of the day. It's very strong and you feel it working straight away, If you spray too much it can go down the back of your throat which is actually a horrible feeling which I try to avoid. You can taste it in the back of your mouth and this can be a little but unpleasant. Overall: This has worked very well for me and I will continue to use it untill the issue resolves itself. I would recommend you get this if you have a cold of similar symptoms to me as it will help you out nicely. I am going to give this a 5 star rating.
Introduction: I have always liked to have vitamins in my diet, just I case I have missed out anything in my diet. It's good to keep healthy as it can make life a lot easier. I take vitamins so I can ward off the coughs and colds which seem to go around every month! This product had a lot of advertisements a few years back and ever since it came on the scene I have been taking them. You can get these from all good stores, such as tesco, boots and asda. They work well and I will now go into a little more detail on this product. Price: I usually get a pack for around £3 from tesco. The price can change dramatically from week to week so keep an eye out for a good deal. They also sell them at savers which is usually the cheapest place to pick them up. You get 30 vitamins in the pack which should last you an entire month if you take one a day like the packet tells you to do. Do they work?: These vitamins are chewy and taste very nice! You would not be mistaken for thinking that these are sweets. They are sweet and make taking vitamins a joy. They are great for kids who don't like taking tablets and would prefer to chew on one of these before bed/In the morning. I take them as I prefer to chew one instead of swallowing a tablet! I'm a big kid at heart. I tend to not get ill or sick very often and I would say that it could be down to these! Although you could never be 100% sure if they work! I like the security factor of taking these everyday. Overall: The product is very appealing and looks like a kids product. The target market is definately children. But I would still recommend this to any ages as the health benefits are very good for you. The price is a little expensive, but it is worth it just for the benefits to your health. These get a full 5 stars from me as I have no need to fault them at all. Thanks for reading my review
Introduction: I purchased this tom tom over 5 years ago when I first started driving, I wanted a tom tom as I used to travel a long way to college and then to work as I lived in a village. I always wanted a tom tom as they were described as the best around. This model was one of the best on offer at the time. And I am so glad I purchased this as I have had to have another one since. Price: This cost me £250 at the time which was very expensive and a rather large outlay. Nowadays you can pick up an old one on ebay for around £30, I would recommend you get one if you want a simple sat nav to use that is cheap. The newer tom toms are much more expensive. Functions: This works by gps so you must be in range of a satellite, it will take a minute after you turn it on to connect to a satellite, once you are connected you can put in a place you wish to go and the sat nav will give you the quickest route there. The other functions include location of speed cameras, your actual speed, distance left. You can change the voice of the satnav and when you connect it to your computer you can add new voices such as celebrities ( I have Homer Simpson). You can also update the maps on the satnav when you connect it to your computer using the USB provided. You can also add maps of other countries for an extra cost, which is great when you are driving through Europe. Any good?: The battery life has deteriorated over time, but this is to be expected with any battery, I now find I have it have it on charge when driving or it will die half way through a journey. It has lasted 6 years and still works just as well. It is a little bulky and heavy compared to the newer versions, but this doesn't bother me as the mount u use to attach it to my screen is excellent. This is a very reliable model, it is easy to update and has no problems at all. I am reluctant to upgrade to a newer model seeing as this still works. Overall: The reason I am writing a review on such an old product is because I am so happy with how long it has lasted, if you ever see one for sale, I would recommend it to you. It is very easy to use and the features are excellent. It is perfect for all road users, I think tom tom as a brand Is the best for sat navs. Although this cost me a lot of money in the first place, I think it was money well spent. This product gets a 5 star rating from me, can't fault it. This sat nav is basically indestructible , I have dropped it many times and it has fallen of shelfs yet it has never affected it.
Introduction: When I go abroad I hate taking my iPhone and iPod as I know that sooner or later I will end up either losing them or getting them stolen like many of my friends have! I decided to look for a cheap MP3 player that I could take away with me and not worry too much about losing it. I was doing my weekly shop at tesco and noticed there range of MP3 players were very cheap, I saw this particular one and noticed it looked like an iPod shuffle, I was then amazed by the price! I will now go into more detail on the product and explain why it's worth getting. Price: It costs just £9.99 and that is a bargain, the player can hold 2gb of music, which is around 400 songs! It's a bargain seeing as other brands are well over triple the price. I purchased the black player, but it was also available in white, and I have seen it online In pink. There are good colour choices for such a good value product. Any good?: The main feature of this is that there isn't a screen, so you must click through to find the songs you would like. This is good if you have a small amount of music on it, if you have a large amount of music you will struggle to find the correct songs! It's really easy to use and you are given a USB cable to connect it to your computer to add songs on. I like the ease of use! The battery life is good, I would say it lasts around 5-6 hours. The box says it will last 9 hours, but I'm not too sure it lasts that long. The quality of the player is very good and well worth more than I paid for it, you also recieve some headphones with it, I didn't like these and threw them away, I added my own headphones and the MP3 player produced a good sound through them. Overall: I am very happy with this product and I would recommend this to anyone who wants a new mp3 Player. It's suitable for any ages as it's very easy to use. I would make a good gift this Christmas to children and grandparents! I will get another one of these if mine breaks as they are so practice and lightweight. I never knew something so cheap could me so good. The technika range by tesco is very good value and I will consider buying other products from there range in the future! This gets a 5 stars from me, can't fault it at this price
Introduction: I love fizzy drinks and tend to drink a lot through the week. I know they are not the best for your health, but I find it hard to stay away from them! Recently I have been drinking a lot of sugar free fizzy drinks as I thought this may make fizzy drinks a little bit better for my health and my teeth! I noticed fanta zero when out for lunch one day in a cafe and decided to give it a try as I love normal fanta and thought this would taste the same. I will now go into more detail on the product. Price: A normal 500ml bottle of fanta zero costs roughly £1.30. I have seen this for a pound in some shops. It is situated along with all the other fizzy drinks in supermarkets which stock it. It's the same price as coke, 7 up etc. Taste: I really didn't like the taste compared to normal fanta! I guess I just love the sugar in normal fanta, this lacks the sweet orange taste that we all love from fanta. The lack of taste is a huge off out to me, I don't really like the taste of the sweetners in the drink. The initial taste of fanta zero is nice, but the lingering Taste in the mouth is just not for me. If you are on a diet then this would be a good alternative, but I wouldn't advise this drink if you love normal sugared fanta! Overall: A heathy alternative to fanta, but lacks the kick of orange and sweetness which I Am used to. I think this drink would be good for children as they love fizzy drinks and may not notice the lack of sugar, I probably won't be drinking this particlulAr "zero" drink again, I would recommend you try coke zero though, as that is a nice taste compared to this product. It's a nice attempt by fanta, but doesn't work in my eyes! I am going to give fanta zero a 2 star rating, I personally don't like it. Thanks for reading my review On fanta zero, I hope it helped you out in some way.
Introduction: I was looking for a portable radio to be used in the garden, I like having music on when I am weeding and doing general work around the house. I had a look on tesco direct to see what they had on sale and I spotted this little product and was pleased at the price which they were selling it for. I reserved it via click and collect and picked it up next day from my local store alongside other items I had ordered. I was pleased with how quickly I could recieve my item and the customer service I recieved was excellent. I will now go into a little more detail on this product and explain why it is worth the money. I am really happy with my radio. Price: This cost me £4.50 which I thought was excellent value at the time. It is cheaper than anything else I have seen on the market. I would say this is a bargain at the current price and I would recommend this product to you simply on the price alone! The addtional cost to this product is that fact that you need to purchase batteries to run it, it runs off 2xAAA which are easy to get hold of. I use ones from poundshops as they seem to work ok in this and last a while. Obviously the cost of batteries will push the overall cost of the product up! But I dont mind at all. Any good?: The sound quality is not amazing, but it does the job and gives a nice average sound. In the garden you done need good quality, just something to fill the silence and this works well. It is easy to tune and has very little issues that I have found so far. The ariel simply pulls out and gives you a good signal on your chosen station. The radio is very small which is perfect if you have only a small amount of storage space. I purchased one of these for my mother and she keeps it in her greenhouse, its the perfect size to carry around. for the money I would recommend you get one of these whilst you can. Overall: A small and handy little radio player, the sound quality isnt great, but for the money its worth it! I would recommend you get one of these as they are very handy to have. Great for summer BBQ's in the garden, or when you are out weeding your back garden. This small little thing can bring you entertainment when you need it most! Thanks for reading my review, I hope it helps you out. Give it a try, you will be happy with this product. 4 stars from me, if the sound quality was a little better this would be getting all 5 stars from me. I am really happy and will get another one if this one ever fails. jlaker1992
Introduction: I am often in sports direct as they are a good value shop, I was about To pay for some clothes when I noticed a selection of shower gels next to the counter, they were all very well price. I noticed that this particular bottle was only 49p! It looked ok on the shelf so I bought it as an impulse purchase! I will now go into a little more detail on the product and explain why I don't feel it's very good. Price: As I have mentioned before, I paid 49p for this. The RRP for the product according to sports direct is £2.99! I would never pay full price for this product, but 49p is about correct. Definately one of the cheapest shower gels I have ever bought. Is it any good then?: This is a shower cream, so the liquid is white and looks like cream. On first appearance the cream looks Nice, but after lathering up and rinsing my skin feels dry and not Very moisturised. It doesn't feel as nice as other shower creams I have used in the past. My girlfriend and I tend to use the same shower gels as it saves money when we use the same ones. We both agree that the quality isn't greAt and that was reflected by the very cheap price. Overall: The product is cheap, but not particularly cheerful. I would not recommend this product and I would advise you stick to the usual branded products from supermarkets. This shower cream Has a nice smell, but doesn't leave your skin feeling all that good! That's why I am giving this a 2 star rating. It gets the 2nd star for the price! Jlaker1992
introduction: I have a very small lawn which does not need to much attention, but I recently decided to buy my own lawnmower as I have been borrowing my dads for a long time! I wanted something cheap, but a brand I knew well. I went into B&Q to look at there range and I was surprised to see this little mower at a good price! I am very glad I bought this Flymo as it has done everything I needed it to do. Price: I paid only £50 for this! I was expecting to pay much more, lawnmowers are usually expensive. This is a very small lawnmower and it is electric, that is why the price is so affordable. I was extremely happy to pay this price and it gets 5 stars for the value alone! Does it work?: This hover flymo is very lightweiight and easy to carry, it folds up and can fit in very small areas. It is very practical if you are short on storage space as I am! You have to plug this in the mains power and it runs very well. The cord gets a bit of getting used to if you are used to petrol powered mowers, i am happy with the length of the power cable, it is 10 metres which is more than enough for my patch of grass. I find it cuts well and you can cut the grass to a level which is satisfactory. The mower is cheap because it is all mainly plastic, even the blades are made out of plastic, they are good plastic blades and can be replaced easily. The mower is so light and can be lifted up easily. Overall: I would recommend this to anyone who owns a small garden like me, it cuts well and does the job. It is not suitable for medium to large sized gardens as it is not designed for that use. It is good for the elderly as its lightweight and requires little maintence. It is very easy to use and is not complicted, The price is also brilliant. I cant fault this product as it does exaxtly what I want it to do. This gets a big 5 stars from me! Thanks flymo, great product. Thanks for reading my review. jlaker1992
Introduction: I recently went on a shopping trip into town and one of my local discount shops was offering Pepsi Max on offer in a large quanitity of 20 cans, I decided to give them a try as the branding on the cans looked really good and they looked healthier than regular cola! I wish I never bought these now as they really do not excite me at all, I will now go into more detail on this product and explain my reasons for disliking it! Price: I paid only £12 for 20 cans when on offer. They usually cost between £2-3 for 6 cans. You can also buy this in larger 2 litre bottles for £2 and smaller 500ml bottle for around £1. As with all major brands, the price can fluctuate greatly from week to week, look out for offers and if you like the drink I would advise stocking up your fridge when you notice a good low price. I prefer drinks out of a can, but the other options are handy if you only want a small amount in a glass! Taste: For me, the taste is bad! It is very weak and has very little sweet tastes! I know the drink does not include sugar, but the lack of sweetners make the cola very bitter. It doesn't even compare to diet Pepsi or even diet coke. It is very fizzy with little satisfaction! However I do know people who much prefer Pepsi max. With soft drinks it always comes down to personal opinion. Branding: It is much more masculine than diet Pepsi and I belive it is aimed at the male market. The black design they use looks really good, it's just a shame the branding doesn't match the taste at all! I would much prefer to be seen drinking from this can instead of a girly diet coke design! Overall: Even though this is not for me at all, I would recommend that you try it, you may be surprised and like It. It's personal opinion. The packaging is appealing and the price can be cheap when on offer, keep An eye out for this product and try it for yourself. I am giving this 2 stars. Thanks for reading!!
Introduction: Music is my passion, I have music playing for most of the day on my iPhone. I needed some new headphones as my old ones were getting a bit bad, they had been through the wash etc! I had a look online for headphones which have a good amount of bass and these showed up widely on the Internet! I ended up purchasing these from amaZon as they were offering the cheapest price on the market at the time. I will now go into more detail on this product Price: I paid £10.48 for these, they currently are £12 and on some other websites much more. The cheapest place to get these is amazon. They were delivered quickly from amaZon and packaged very well. Overall these were a great price compared to others i saw with a similar spec. Good?: These are excellent, the sound quality is great and the bass is crisp and clear. I was surprised at how good the bass was. They can cope with most songs easily. The only problem with these headphones is that due to the good bass, some High end sound is lost and also some songs are over powered with bass! I would say these headphones are perfect for anyone who loves bass and would like this to be the main feature in there music. Style: The style is great, the cable is red on my headphones which is trendy and stands out from the rest. There are other colours available on Amazon, but red was my favourite. The actual ear piece is rather large, it can get in the way sometimes, it's something you have to get used to as they feel big in your ear. Overall: These headphones are great value an perform well for the price. I would recommend these to anyone who needs a new pair of headphones for a good price! Good for the younger generation as bass is loud. I would pay much more for these than I did. These get 5 stars from me!!
