      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Relieable steamer

      This device was a replacement of my old Tefal steamer/slow cooker (but I never liked the slow cooker, so didn't use it much). My old steamer took up so much space, but this one it all fits together and has given me much more space to fill! I just put it in the back of the cupboard and it fits fine. The steamer itself is great and easy to use. Just remember to check the numbers on the bowls - if you get them the wrong way around as I did the first time I used it, you may find that when you put the second bowl on top of the first it slots inside instead of sitting on top - oops! The removeable bases are a bit fiddly, just as others have said, but not enough to put anyone off buying it for that reason alone. I find that by gently pulling the sides apart the base is easier to slot in. There is a keep warm function, check the amendment to the instructions first and set this function AFTER the cooking has started. A great buy - and check out the book Steaming which has opened my eyes to steamer cooking!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Brilliant stuff, totally recommend

        This product is great. I have long, thick, curly hair and naturally very dry and straw like (mixed race hair).

        Anyway, I spend a lot of £££ buying hair products that make it manageable and I was about to take the leap into buying Moroccanoil conditioner but at £30 for a small tub I wasn't that keen. I came on here to see reviews and others where this product was mentioned so I decided to buy some of this before spending that amount of money.

        I am so glad that I did. This conditioner is brilliant, the condition of my hair has improved a lot, I can't believe it. I am amazed with it really. I love the smell, although I know people that can't stand it.

        I've bought mine on ASDA, with a great offer of 3 for £10, so I have stocked up on other products in the range and they have not disappointed either. I am really pleased.

        Totally recommend. Good value for money.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Avarage deodorant

          I have tried several products in the well-known Nivea brand and have been very impressed for the most part. One spray that I had not tried before was the "Invisible for Black & White Clear" version which I purchased in a local branch of Tesco a few months ago.

          Prices may vary greatly, the usual selling price being around the £2 mark, which is not bad for 200ml.

          The packaging is quite eye-catching and sleek, personally I like it a lot. Not that's very important. If I've found my Perfect deodorant, I wouldn't care if it was the most ugliest canister on earth. It's just a deodorant.

          On me, it's really invisible, I wear a lot of black clothing and I don't have even one stain. The negative point is it doesn't last long like other deodorants.

          It's an avarage deodorant, that's why I only give it 3 stars. That's it.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Very pleasant daytime perfume

            "It's a line from my song 'Enchanted (...) I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home. I've always loved that line and that phrase, 'wonderstruck.' You don't hear it very often. So I just felt like if I ever got the chance to make a fragrance, which I've dreamed of doing since I was about 14 years old ... Ever since I wrote that song, I thought that would be the title. And I'd want to create a fragrance that smelled the way that word feels." Taylor Swift

            I've bought this eau de parfum a few months ago, and I really like it for daywear. I can really scent the berry notes, it's not overpowering and it lasts reasonably on my skin. The only negative point that I can think about it, is the cheap packaging.

            I've Got it in The Perfume Shop, and I got a free weekend bag with it (I love a good freebie).

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Very good handcream, with the right consistency

              Being a nurse, you can imagine the amount of hand creams I run over in a year: loads! I've tried this Soap and Glory Hand Food, and although I'm not particularly faithful to the brand, I loved the product.

              I wash my hands a million times per day, so they're naturally dry. And I absolutely hate the greasy sensation of the heavy rich creams, like Neutrogena, but I recognize that some sillicone based hand creams like Avon Glycerine Hand Cream are not that good. This one is the perfect balance.

              First, smells sooo good, smells fresh, can't really describe it.
              Second, as I said previously, the consistency is just right! Not greasy but not too waxy.

              Price wise... you can get it cheaper on the 3 for 2 sale, if you want to keep a good stock. But they're not terribly overpriced, I think it's worth it if you love it.

              Very good electric toothbrush

              I've bought this electric toothbrush after being recommended by my dentist. I never had an electric toothbrush before this one, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. To be honest, I always took good care of my teeth, and I don't know how did I survive without one, I'm really impressed.

              I was really impressed, the vibration is good and not at all excessive. After brushing my teeth, they feel completely clean. The brush that came with it is very good, it's not aggressive in my gums, and it reaches everywhere. It's really easy to assemble and very instinctive to use, no major technological knowledge needed. The battery lasts for ages, I think when I bought mine, it lasted for 1 week.

              I've bought mine in a half price sale, in a supermarket (ASDA or Sainsbury's, not quite sure) but it's worth the full price, I totally recommend. Always look on Amazon as well, they're often on sale.

              Wated my money

              I was so excited about this product, that I had to go immediatly and buy it. And it was such a disappointment...

              I have naturally curly thick hair (mixed race, so not totally afro), and I thought this hair styler was going to be the solution for my lack of imagination when doing my hair. Big mistake. From the first time I used it I knew I had spend my money for nothing... My hair got tangled in the brush, and I was stubborn and tried over and over, but it was useless. My hair simply got tangled and caught on the brush, and it was so hard to get it off, I got to a point that I was almost crying of pain when I was trying to pull my hair of the device.

              It may work on some people, I totally undestand how, I saw dozens of tutorials, but unfortunatly it was a big no no for me.

              Very good coffee machine

              Being a coffee lover, there wasn't much doubt when I had to buy my coffee machine.

              I love the Dolce Gusto system, and I think it's brilliant that besides the regular expsso, I can do Chai Lattes, Cappucinos and Ice Teas, everything in the same device.

              Very user friendly, easy to clean and large range of coffee pods (if you love a nice bitter expresso, I have to recommend the Barista). The machine itself is very sturdy, and I wouldn't expect anything else from Krups, it has always been a reliable brand. it doesn't take long to heat the water, and you'll always have a lovely hot coffee. On the other hand, if you want to do a cold and refreshing ice tea, you can count that your drink will be nice and cold, which I highly doubted beforehand.

              Overall it's a great coffee machine, with a great and easy system.

              Very versatile and ergonomic

              First of all, I need to clarify that I'm not a professional, so this review is going to be from a leisure point of view.

              I got my Canon EOS 600D as an upgrade from my Canon EOS 400D that I had for ages. I take a lot of pictures for my blog, so I expect excellent quality pictures that I can't have with a digital compact camera. There's a lot of mixed opinions about the articulated vari-angle LCD screen, but personally I think it's brilliant. It's bigger and the photos fill the screen completely.

              It obviously has all the scene modes, and includes a close-up mode, which is excellent for the type of pictures I take most of the times. Overall, I think all tha Canon SLRs are begginer's friendly, and with a good guide, you can take the most out of your gadget.

              This camera also includes video recording in HQ (a feature that wasn't included in the 400D), and that I find very easy and instinctive to use.

              Overall, this is a very responsive and versatile camera.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I would recommend.

                I first started using MUA (Makeup Academy) makeup about 1 and a half years ago, when all the products from their range was £1. From eyeshadow to mascara, from eyeliner to blush I've tried everything. And I must say that the blushes are the products I'm most impressed with.

                Personally I've tried shade 4 (a beautiful coral shade, easily comparable to Benefit's Coralista) and shade 6 (an amazing plum with gold shimmer, maybe comparable to Nars Sin?).

                The pros:
                - Very pigmentated. In fact, you've got to have a light hand to apply them on your face, to avoid the clown face look.
                - See-through packaging, so you don't have to open them or turn them around to see what they look like.
                - Availability. They're always available at Superdrug and online (although I've never placed an order with them).

                The cons:
                - Packaging looks cheap, but for £1 you can't demand Chanel...
                - Fallout. Specially on shade 6, it's very powdery.

                Overall, I think they're a great buy. I would recommend.
