      Advantages

      • "Batteries last a long time"
      • "Great for down the garden"
      • "Very light"

      Disadvantages

      • "Sometimes loses signal for no reason which can become frustrating"

      Perfect little radio!

      Introduction:

      I purchased this product from tesco direct to replace my old tesco portable radio which was accidentally left outside in the rain this winter! I have been very happy with this product, I usually buy the cheapest product on the market, but I am glad I went for a more upmarket brand as this has proved to be a real good capture.

      Price:

      I purchased this radio for 19.99 using some of my clubcard vouchers which I had saved up. Its a middle of the range product, but suits me perfectly. It is currently selling for 25 pounds, yet this price seems to fluctuate between stores on no regular basis.

      Features:

      This is a portable radio and requires 3xAA batteries, it also comes with a headphones socket which can be very useful if you want to listen privately in the garden. This is only an analogue radio and can not be used a DAB radio. You can also plug this into the wall if you would like to use it inside.

      Any good?:

      It is of very good quality and the sound is impressive, it''s very sturdy and has survived a few falls off the table. It''s very simple and easy to use and I have no problems so far. Sometimes I can lose signal which is frustrating when previously it was recieving signal, however this could just be an issue with my actual location. The sound of thr radio can easily fill a room, and it also is loud enough to be heard from some distance when in the garden, overall this is a very high quality portable radio and is much better than any I have owned in the past.

      Recommend?:

      I would recommend this to a friend or to anyone who would like a small radio for around the house, it''s handy to keep in the bathroom too! It has many uses and is pretty good on battery life, if you use decent batteries it will last a pretty long time. I have been very happy with this item and I hope it continues to work. It''s reliable!

      Thanks for reading

      Advantages

      • "Good quality"
      • "Quick delivery"
      • Tasty

      Disadvantages

      • "Very expensive"

      The very best pizza straight to your door!!

      Introduction:

      I have always used dominos as my preferred method of takeaways! The taste is incredible and the price is terrible. Dominos is common in many towns and is used by many people, however I have found that different dominos in different towns have very differing tastes

      Price:

      A large pizza is around 16.99, which is rather expensive. However there are many vouchers posted online which allow you to get discounts. I also receive emails from dominos which offer deals and discounts.

      Taste:

      Dominos is by far the tastiest pizza take away company, I love the choice of topping which you can put on the pizzas and they all taste fresh. They also have many side dishes such as chicken wings which add to the meal nicely. Although the food is probably not very good for you, I think it''s nice to treat yourself once in a while as it''s tasty. The food is great to Order for parties

      Order time:

      When I order from my local dominoes in Horsham, delivery time is usually half an hour, the pizzas and food always arrive very hot and the delivery drivers we get are also very friendly and chatty when at the door. I am always happy with the quickness of delivery and how hot the food is.

      Overall:

      If you have never tried dominos then I would suggest that you give it a try. There is a very large selection of food, so have a look through the menu. There are weekly deals to be found so have a browse on the internet as new deals regularly pop up. I rate dominos over any of my local delivery companies, although the price is high, you get good quality food with amazing dips and sides!

      Give them a try, I have given them 4 stars. Only deducting a star because the price is a little steep to use them regularly

      Advantages

      • "Good customer service"
      • "Very cheap"
      • "Good selection"

      Disadvantages

      • "Delivery can be a little slow"

      Sports direct has great deals, worth a look!

      Introduction:

      I use sports direct to buy all of my sports clothes, shoes and equipment! They have it all. I much prefer to shop online as going in store is a bit of a nightmare as they are always busy. The website is neatly layed out and easy to navigate through.

      Price:

      Everything is cheap on the website, they have very good deals and are by far the cheapest sports shop I have come across! The website always has good deals on and good bargains to be found.

      Experiences:

      I have had good experiences with them in the past, making 7 orders so far. On average they take 5 working days to arrive when you pay for standard delivery which costs 3.99. One order I placed took over a week to arrive. I have found that they are not the quickest deliveries.

      Quality:

      All orders have been of excellent quality and everything has arrived the way it should. Packaged well and Protected during transport. They offer all of the top brands at cheaper prices to places such as JD sports.

      Would I recommend?:

      I would recommend this company if you are in need of new sports gear or accessories, they are easy to find on the website with a very good price for many of the products that they offer. Orders do take some time to arrive, but if you don''t mind waiting then I would recommend this website for you! It''s also great for kids clothes and sports gear. Customer services are very prompt to reply to any queries which is always a bonus, one query I had via email took only 2 hours for a reply.

      I have given them 4 stars, worth a look and a browse!

      Advantages

      • "Destroys blackheads"
      • "Works well over a long period "
      • "Good value "

      Disadvantages

      • "Takes a while to work"

      Great value and a good long term solution

      Introduction:

      I saw this product being advertised on the TV, so I thought it may be worth a try. I have been using this for 3 months and I am happy to write a review about it now.

      Price:

      I paid 2 pound for a bottle of this, however it usualy retails at over 3. Pound .I got my bottles from Tesco in the sale. It is good value for money if used regularly

      Any good?:

      I am not a huge fan of using scrubs to eliminate blackheads, so when I saw this product I was delighted. I have been using it for a while now and my blackheads have reduced, I believe that this product helps to lift dirt out of your pores and prevent blackheads from forming in the future. It leaves my face feeling very clean and fresh and lasts a long time. You only need a small amount on a cotton bud to rub all over your face.

      Would I recommend?:

      I would recommend this to anyone who needs a new product to try and get rid of blackheads which trouble them.! It''s a good product and works better then other ones I have tried in the past. It is also very good value as you only have to use a very small amount to clean your face. It''s good for all ages, but would be very good for younger teenagers getting their first blackheads and spots. It is overall a good cleanser which will leave you feeling refreshed. I usually use it twice a day, first thing when I wake up and last thing at night. Can also be used alongside face scrubs and other washes.

      I have given this product 4 stars as it''s a good and solid product with good long lasting effects.

      Advantages

      • "Free with iPhone!"
      • "Good for hands free talking"
      • "Good quality "

      Disadvantages

      • Comfort
      • "Sounds quality"

      A good set of headphones, with good features

      Introduction:

      I recently purchased a new iPhone 5c and these headphones came with them in the box, they are available to buy individually in many shops, such as apple, Tesco and hmv. I will now go into more detail on these headphones

      Cost:

      These headphones cost 25 pounds, however if you purchase an iPhone you will get them free in the box. They are rather expensive, but do have some good features which I shall discuss next. Overall I would say these are on the expensive side for what they are.

      Functions:

      They are in ear headphones so they fit straight into your ear. They have volume control and an inbullt speaker so you can talk hands free to people who call you. The additional volume control can be very handy and I use this feature a lot when out and about, it makes it easier to turn up or turn down the volume.

      Quality:

      These produce a good sound, but it is nothing special, I would suggest these headphones at being everyday headphones. The quality when turned up loud isn''t very good or clear compared to other headphones I have used. The bass is ok and the overall quality is good, but I believe you can get better headphones for your money. If you get these free then they are worth keeping for general use.

      Would I recommend them?:

      I would recommend them to a friend if they needed some new headphones with hands free features and volume control. However I would not buy another pair in the future, as I feel
      There are better headphones on the Market for less money. These are an improvement on the old headphones which used to come with iPhones, as these fit comfortably in the ear and stay in nicely when doing exercise.

      Thanks for reading my review

      Advantages

      • faster

      • Lightweight
      • Stylish

      Disadvantages

      • Expensive
      • "Battery could be better"

      An excellent phone which I would recommend

      Introduction:

      I have recently parted with my IPhone 4, and upgraded to the Iphone 5c in Blue. The reason for updating was because my old phone was starting to slow down. I have had the 5c in blue for about 3 months now, so I thought it was time to write a review and get my opinion out there

      Price:

      They are a little pricey, you are looking at well over 400 pounds, yet if you purchase the Phone with a contract like I have, you can get the phone for free. Have a look at the best deals out there and compare prices. Overall I would say that they are expensive for what they are, but you have to pay these prices for technology and there is no escaping that fact. They are also very expensive to repair, so I would recommend taking out insurance on your new phone

      Worth the Upgrade?:

      The phone works very well, it runs quickly and apps will open instantly. The overall quality of the screen is much improved and is very clear. I love that the screen is bigger, it makes browsing the web and viewing videos a much more enjoyable experience. The colours are fantastic and brighten up the usual dull colours and appearence of an IPhone. The back feels smooth and light to hold.

      Quality?:

      The phone is ''plastic'' but I do not feel it detracts from the quality, I feel like it is a breath of fresh air from Apple and I like to brightness of the colours. It is cheaper than the 5s so I feel the quality may not be as good, but if you want a reliable phone with almost all the features of the top model, then I would recommend this.

      Features:

      All the usual Iphone features, yet a few facelifts. The camera is excellent and the sound quality from the inbuilt speaker is great. The use of ''siri'' feels much easier. The phone also feels much more responsive when typing and selecting apps

      Would I recommend?:

      I would recommend this Phone to anyone looking to upgrade, or get an Iphone for the first time. They are good quality and work very fast. They have a good battery life if you use the phone all day, although I would prefer the battery to last longer it is much better than previous models. The colours on offer, such as white, red, blue, pink etc and very vibrant and there is one to suit most personalities. I recommend looking around for a good deal, many contracts will offer this phone for free if you pay a certain amount each month (I currently pay 27 and I got the phone free on a 24 month contract)

      Thanks for reading!

      Advantages

      • Reliability

      Disadvantages

      a very good product that I would happily recommend to anyone in need!

      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.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good supplement to support a healthy diet, stops the colds from coming in the winter, good product

        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

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great bath soak that I will continue to use

          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.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Smells great, Good 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.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Saves money in the long run?

          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.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Love this product, glad my doctor recommended it.

          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.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great product for the kids, and also for grow ups who want a sweet treat and to look after health!

          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

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The best I have owned

          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.

          Advantages

          • Reliability

          Disadvantages

          Perfect for the price!

          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
