      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Remove pain fast.

      I rarely suffer from headaches but when I get a headache I cannot shift I do need to give in and take a couple of pain relief tablets. I bought these caplets to stock up so I had some in the home if I ever needed to take a couple.

      They come housed in a cardboard box, the caplets are inside a plastic strip which you can very easily pop out from the strip. They are a white colour and small in size so very easy to swallow indeed and I don't have any trouble managing to swallow them.

      They relieve pain in around 20 to 30 minutes and I think this is a fast time to relieve pain. They don't take any longer than other more expensive paracetamol caplets and I think they work the same to be honest and they work so well for any headache pain I have which I cannot shift.

      They can be taken for cold and flu headaches, muscular pain, period pain and any other pain you may be suffering from on the day you need to take a couple of paracetamol tablets to shift it. I have taken paracetamol tablets when I have banged my head and had a throbbing headache I cannot shift and I have paid far more than these cost for shifting that kind of pain.

      These work well indeed for mild pain but if you have a very bad headache I think you may need to take them maybe throughout the day at intervals. But it is important not to exceed the recommended dose because you could become sick if you take too many in one day and it is important to take them with care so you don't overdose.

      The dosage is 2 caplets to be taken every 4 hours but no more than 8 of them in 24 hours. I only needed to take 2 of them and they worked in just 20 minutes and the pain was completely gone. My wife sometimes has bad headaches and she takes 2 every 4 hours for maybe up to 3 doses when she cannot shift a bad headache. Her pain is usually eased though after the second dose and she takes another dose sometimes just to make sure the pain is completely gone so that it doesn't return and the pain is more comfortable.

      There are 16 caplets in the box and cost only 45p, a very good price indeed for this many in the box and are well worth this price.

      Why pay more than you need to and for paracetamol which work in the same way as any others which cost lots of money.

      I recommend these caplets, they work very well indeed for shifting my pain when I have a headache and I will buy them again and keep stocked up for when I need to take a couple in the future. We all suffer from headaches from time to time so need to make sure we have some in the home.

      I rate these caplets 5 stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Smells nice and lathers well indeed.

        I like the Lynx shower gels and find they are really good value for money and they also smell very nice too. They are cheap to buy and don't cost a lot of money and are worthwhile purchases.

        It comes housed in a black plastic bottle which has a press down kind of top so no top to lose in the shower. The liquid is rich and not a runny consistency and is smooth and soft texture. It is a purple colour and glossy look.

        It has a nice smell and smells of a masculine perfume smell which is suitable, smells fresh too. I like it because it lathers up really well indeed without having to use too much of the liquid, so using a small amount means a little of it goes a long way and the bottle lasts for a long time so it is good value for money.

        It foams well too, creates a lot of bubbles and I can smell the fragrance while I am showering. It does leave a smell on my skin after I have dried myself with a towel. When I sniff my skin to test the smell I can smell it immediately my skin has dried and it is rather nice and masculine. Can also smell it some time later too so it does have a lasting smell on the skin.

        When it soaps up while using it, it slides across my skin very well indeed and feels soft and smooth. The gels texture means I can shower really quickly in the mornings when time is an issue and I need to shower before work. It is a refreshing gel which wakes me up in the mornings. Is also a nice one to shower with in the evenings after work and smells just as refreshing at this time of the day.

        Has not caused irritations because it isn't a harsh liquid gel it is a mild one which I do think would be a good gel to try if you do have sensitive skin.

        Some of my older grandson's who have hit puberty have used this gel and they quite like it and I know they do because they use my shower gel quite a lot when they shower at my home at the weekend or during the week after school. Shows it is a good one which the younger men like as much as older men like myself. Suitable for all age groups.

        I will buy it again in the future and for a 250ml bottle I only paid £2.20 for it and I think it is a good price for the work it does for washing the body. A cheap price for a good shower gel. Well worth the money indeed I would say.

        I can see why it is called Excite because it is an exciting shower gel to use for both morning and night time showers and any time of the day for that matter.

        I will buy it again sometime soon because I like it quite a lot and it comes highly recommended.

        I rate it 5 stars.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Nice smell. Softens well indeed.

          Comfort is a good brand and softens my clothing well indeed. My wife picked this fragrance up at the weekend while we were shopping because we use a lot of fabric softener and had ran out of it. We bought 2 bottles of the liquid to stock up. We have bought this before many times.

          The softener comes housed in a plastic bottle and the lid can be used as a measuring lid if required. I just pour the liquid into the machine drawer and never use the lid. The liquid is a peach colour and is fairly thick. It isn't too runny if poured carefully into the machine.

          It has a nice floral smell which I like a lot and also a peach smell too. It isn't too strong a smell and is just the right smell for my liking. I can smell it as soon as I remove the lid. You don't need a lot of the liquid to soften clothing as a little does go a long way with this softener.

          It softens my clothing well indeed and the smell is apparent on the clothing when I take it from my machine and once it dries it is still on the clothing. I used it yesterday to soften my winter fleece I wear when it is cold and I can smell it today when I took it from my wardrobe to wear it. I could smell the peach smell on it and it has a slight smell of perfume but not so much so it is too feminine for a male on a man's clothing.

          Bedding smells lovely when getting into bed at night time and the sheets and pillowcases smell of the fragrance which lasts for days and smells really nice and fresh when jumping into bed at night.

          My fleece feels soft and fluffy and smooth. It softens my towels well indeed too and leaves them feeling soft. It has softened my grandchildren's clothing we have washed and left the jumpers feeling soft and again fluffy and not a rough feeling that it would scratch their skins.

          It is a nice one to use if you have sensitive skin because it is a gentle liquid and not harsh. We have never suffered any rashes or irritations on our skins since using this softener. Is a nice one if you have babies and want to use a gentle softener for their softer skins. It works well for softening baby clothes and it is a nice softener for our baby grandchildren's clothing we wash at our house when they change after making a mess of their clothes while eating.

          The bottles we bought were 1.2 litre size and this size can soften up to 34 wash loads for just £2 for the price we paid. This price is very good indeed for around 34 washes and good value for money.

          I will keep buying this softener fragrance because it does a good job of softening clothing and towels, bedding and wools.

          I rate it 5 stars.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Bitter taste. Loses fizz.

            I have lots of grandchildren and so always need to make sure I am stocked up with a drink for when they come to see me regularly. I always have at least 2 visit most days and I like to make sure they can choose a soft drink. This one was cheap and I hadn't bought it before until recently.

            It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle and the cola is a dark brown colour, it does look fine inside the bottle, much like any other cola. Once I unscrewed the top, I found it had a fairly nice smell to it. Quite a strong smell of the cola smell. It is like any other brand to just pour into a glass. The label is very basic looking too.


            Once I had poured myself a glass, I took one sip and I didn't feel it was a very nice taste at all. It had a kind of acid taste to it and not a nice one at all. It was quite a fizzy drink like any other at first but after a minute or 2 it lost the fizz completely and felt really flat. Not a good sign it was a good value for money drink. I did drink a full glass, just to make sure I maybe liked it the more I drank it but I found it tasted just the same after a full glass. It just didn't have any taste of cola at all. I then decided to see if my grandchildren liked it later in the day.

            My grandchildren took one sip and they didn't want to drink the rest. They are not too choosey when it comes to cheaper drinks but they just wouldn't drink any remaining cola in their glasses. This then proved that it wasn't just myself not liking it but also my grandchildren.

            It has a bitter taste to it and not one I like. Although very cheap and priced at just 17p for a 2 litre bottle, I still thought it would have a much better taste. It isn't very good quality at all.

            It is a sugar free drink and low calorie. It contains only 1 calorie for a 250ml glass and only 0.1g of sugars. A good amount of calories for a soft drink but I don't think this drink is worth it, even though it is so cheap it is a total waste of money. I didn't expect it to be brilliant tasting but I did expect a much better taste. This was like drinking dish water to be honest and tasted disgusting.

            I wouldn't recommend this drink to anyone, unless you are absolutely short of money, I think it is a waste of money. I certainly won't ever buy it again and the rest I had in the bottle I had to tip down the sink. Nobody in my home would drink it so no choice. Looks fine in the bottle but tastes nasty and not nice at all.

            I only rate this drink 1 star.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Cleans well.

              I bought this washing up liquid because it was cheap to buy and I am trying to save some money on products and my shopping trips so that I can save more money towards Christmas for my grandchildren and my other family members.

              The liquid comes housed in a plastic bottle which has a flip lid. The soft liquid is a green colour, has a smooth texture and a really nice apple and pear fragrance. The apple is quite strong and smells refreshing and clean, I can barely smell the pear and can only smell a little of the pear compared to the apple. Is a fruity smell and I can smell the apple fragrance when washing my dishes.

              It cleans really well indeed all of my dishes, pans, glasses and cutlery. I don't need to use a lot of the liquid to wash them well. The small amount used does create a lot of foam and bubbles in the water and they don't lose the foam in the water until well after I have finished washing the dishes.

              Cuts into grease really well indeed and removes it without having to keep scrubbing. Melts it well and just leaves the dishes grease free.

              It gives my glasses a good shine and no smearing on them, it is easy to rinse the foam from the dishes and when they have dried they look clean and smear free. It is nice to use for soaking pans if I have any food stuck on the bottom of the pan, just a little of the liquid poured into the pan and topped up with hot water will soak away the food.

              Cleans cloths well too soaked in a little water and a little of the liquid. Just refreshes them and ready to use again and to save money having to buy more cloths when the ones you already have can be just cleaned using this liquid.

              I don't wear gloves when washing dishes and my skin has been fine using this liquid and hasn't irritated my skin. My older grandchildren have washed dishes using it and their skin has been fine too and not irritated. I think this is a mild liquid and not a harsh one for sensitive skins.

              The bottle size is 740ml and cost 87p, good price indeed for a good liquid which actually works for cleaning and removing grease from dishes and pans.

              I recommend this liquid because it is cheap indeed and cleans well too. I will buy it again, it has saved me some money and works well for cleaning and that is all that matters that it works for the price paid.

              I rate it 5 stars.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Softens clothing well indeed.

              Lenor is a nice brand of softeners which I buy to soften my clothes and the clothes of my family. I like this brand because it always helps the clothes to have a lasting smell on them. I bought this softener because I wanted to try a different smelling softener from this brand and this was my choice when I spotted it.

              The softener comes housed in a plastic bottle and has a lid which can be used for measuring the softener if required. I just pour the liquid into my machine and don't bother with the lid for measuring.

              The liquid is soft and smooth and has a nice smell. Smells slightly of vanilla and is a fairly sweet smell with a slight perfume smell added in the mix. I like the smell of this softener quite a lot.

              It doesn't drip from the bottle because it is fairly rich in consistency. I just like to pour a small amount of the liquid into my machine and when I take my clothing from my machine I can smell the sweet smell but not much of the vanilla smell once my clothing is wet, the vanilla smell fades slightly when clothing is wet but that doesn't matter to me as long as he smell is still on the clothing, which it is so that's pleasing to know.

              Once my clothing has dried I can smell the softener on them. This softener works very well indeed for softening clothing and bedding to give it a nice fresh smell. I have a few fleece throws around my home and the softener really leaves the material nice and fluffy and really soft to feel.

              Nice softener which softens my towels and doesn't leave them feeling dry or rough. My bedding smells nice when I get into bed at night and has a nice fresh smell which lasts for days. Even a few days after using the softener on the bedding I can still smell it when getting into bed which shows the smell is lasting.

              Softens my woollens well indeed and my grandchildren's clothing well too and because the softener is a gentle liquid it hasn't irritated their skins.

              I washed an old fishing jacket which hadn't been washed for a while and was a little smelly. When I used this softener I could smell a nicer smell on the jacket and the inner lining is fleece and felt soft and fluffy. It smelt a whole lot better after using this softener and will smell next time I wear the jacket when I go fishing again soon.

              The bottle is 750ml and priced at £1.50 and is to soften up to 21 wash loads of clothing so a lot of loads for the price.

              I like this softener a lot and will buy it again for softening my clothing and my families clothing.
              Is a good purchase indeed and worth the price. Good enough for my families wash days.

              I rate it 5 stars.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Cleans well indeed. Good price.

                There are tons of hand washes to choose from and I just tend to pick up whichever one is priced the cheapest or on offer, or I choose one that I have bought quite a lot and like it. This brand have offers on quite a lot and this wash was one which I bought some time ago on offer. We use a lot of hand washes in our home because have a lot of grandchildren visiting. Also we have more than one toilet to house with washes so buy a lot to accommodate them.

                It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle and it has a pump dispenser which is handy to pump the wash onto the hands. Makes life easier than having to maybe unscrew a top. The wash is a orange colour and is a thick consistency. Doesn't make a mess of the sink when pumping it onto the hands. The bottle also sits well on the side of the sink without tipping over.

                The smell of it is a nice orange smell and it is a sharp smell and quite strong. Is also a citrus smell which I do like a lot. Smells refreshing when using it to wash the hands. The wash is also soft and smooth.

                It lathers well indeed and provides lots of foam on the hands. It melts grease really well indeed too and I often come home from work with greasy hands and the wash just melts it away. It feels soft and creamy on the hands too and so is suitable if you have sensitive skin because it is a mild wash.

                After drying my hands I can smell the orange smell on them and the smell does last for a long time on the skin. It smells less after around a hour or so after washing the hands and it does become milder.

                It cleans hands well indeed and removes any dirt on the skin and chocolate or sticky foods my grandchildren have eaten. It melts the chocolate and sticky food away in one wash without having to wash the hands twice to remove it.

                It rinses away well indeed too in a quite time without having to run the tap constantly to rinse it away so it does save on my water bill and not having to waste water to rinse for longer. Every penny counts in my house and if a wash rinses away quickly that can cut my water bill down.

                It leaves the hands feeling soft and I have noticed how soft my grandchildren's skin feels when I hold their hands after they have washed them using this hand wash.

                You only need to use one pump of the wash for it to clean the hands well, I sometimes have to wash them twice but that is only if my hands are extremely greasy and I need to remove all of the grease if my hands feel greasy after washing them and I have been in my garage doing a very dirty job.

                A good hand wash which I recommend and will buy again.

                I rate it 5 stars.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Durable, easy to shape.

                  I have a lot of grandchildren and have bought play doh quite a lot over the years. It is handy to have around the home to help a child's mind feel creative. My grandchildren like to play together with this product and it is a product which is regularly used in my house to help amuse the children on their visits to my house.

                  The dough is soft and durable, it is easy to mould into different shapes and make things they choose to make that day. We have made little men with long arms and vehicles to houses and dolls. This doh is good for both boys and girls to play and it comes in different colours. Bright colours which attract children's attention, not dull colours which they will find boring to play and make things.

                  Comes housed in small tubs which the doh can be placed back into after shaping it and you can just shape it back into a round ball again after using it and then start all over again the next time you want to play with it.
                  It is safe to use and is like plasticine. We sometimes use those children's pastry cutters to make shapes like food and my granddaughter's like to use them on their tea sets and kitchen set to use as food products. The doh doesn't set hard so it is easy to keep using over and over again.

                  The doh isn't messy and not too sticky, doesn't ruin clothes or tables, can be removed from tables if it sticks to it and the table is being used as the surface to place the doh. I just rub any marks away from the table and it is as good as new and not ruined.

                  We have sometimes used the doh and left it in the tub for a good few months and the next time we have wanted to use it, the doh is still durable and not dried out. Is still soft enough to make things. We got it out at the weekend and my grandchildren were making a bonfire shape and little men watching the fire. They also have left it set up until tonight so that they can see it on bonfire night when they come to have a few fireworks with us.

                  The more you use it the softer it becomes but it does last a very long time indeed and so no fear of using it a couple of times and then having to bin it. It lasts for ages with regular use and hours of fun.

                  It is a cheap product and cost only a few quid, I think it is worth it for the things they can make and get their mind working to do imaginative things their minds want to do when making things with play doh.

                  A good past time for the children to pass a few hours away.

                  I rate it 5 stars.

                    Nice smell, good price.

                    Carex is a nice brand and I have bought this hand wash a few times mainly because my grandchildren like it a lot. I also like it and it is worth the price. We tend to use liquid washes and hand soaps in our home and like to just pick up soaps on offer or ones we like a lot. This is one of our favourites.

                    It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle and it has a pump dispenser. The wash is an orange colour and a thick liquid which is rich and quite soft. It has a nice orange smell to it and smells of chocolate which also has a sweet smell to it. The orange smell is quite strong. The smell of this wash does help encourage my younger grandchildren to wash their hands after using the toilet because they love the smell of it and like to use it. They always wash their hands after using the toilet but the smell of this wash just encourages them more to wash them without having to prompt them.

                    Just one or two pumps is enough to lather on the hands well indeed and the few pumps is enough to foam well on the hands. It smells really nice while washing them and has lots of bubbles. Feels a creamy wash too on the skin, also soft and smooth.

                    It removes any dirt or grease from the hands really well indeed. My hands are sometimes quite greasy and dirty when I arrive home and I always wash my hands before sitting down for my dinner. The wash removes grease from my hands extremely well indeed without having to use a lot of the wash. Sometimes when they are really oily from doing any DIY jobs in my garage I do have to wash my hands twice but this happens no matter which wash I use but this wash removes the oil good enough.

                    My grandchildren's hands can be quite messy after eating their munchies at my home and their treats. The wash removes any sticky foods from their hands really well indeed and it removes them without them having to wash their hands twice to remove it.

                    Even though it has lots of foam and bubbles it is really easy to rinse it from the skin and doesn't take a long time at all. Takes seconds to rinse it so you don't need to use a lot of water.

                    After drying the hands it leaves a nice chocolate orange smell on the skin and doesn't dry the skin. My grandchildren's hands are really soft after using this wash and my skin too. No rashes have occurred on our skins so this wash is worth buying for my families skin.

                    It kills 99.9% of bacteria on the skin and although we are never completely sure if this is true I do think it removes bacteria well indeed and as much as it possibly could remove the bacteria.

                    It is a good price and I paid only £1 for a 250ml bottle and for this price this product is worth it. Not only for the way it washes hands but also for the smell of it which is really worth the price too.

                    This wash is a product I recommend to others, I will buy it again because it is a favourite wash for washing hands in my house. If my grandchildren enjoy washing their hands with this wash it is a bonus and a way of encouraging them to wash their hands regularly.

                    I rate it 5 stars.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Removes stains fairly well.

                      I have just given up smoking for 6 weeks now and doing quite well at the moment and when I did smoke sometimes my teeth were a little stained and I had to remove the stain from my teeth using a paste which tackled the stains much better, this toothpowder I did buy this toothpaste many years ago and when I spotted it in a pound shop I thought I would try it again.

                      It comes housed in a tub and it is a pressed powder which you place your toothbrush, first of all you need to dampen the toothbrush head and then just press it into the powder. It can be a little messy and the grains of powder do fly around at times if you press the head too firmly into the powder. So easy does it when pressing. Is best to place the tub onto the sink top so any mess can be easily rinsed away.

                      It cleans teeth really well indeed, tastes really minty and refreshing in the mouth, doesn't burn it or sting. I have been using this powder for around a week or so and have seen an improvement in the look of my teeth. They are less stained than before I began using it. The powder isn't rough against the teeth and doesn't scratch it, although it does feel quite grainy on the teeth compared to when using a paste. I think is doing a good job of removing the stains from my teeth quite well without being too abrasive.

                      It is easy to rinse from the mouth but does take a little longer than when using a toothpaste. This powder doesn't feel foamed in the mouth and is more like a powder mixed with water consistency. Pretty hard for me to describe but if you mixed powder with water and made it paste, this is what this product looks and feels like in the mouth and while brushing the teeth.

                      I am happy with the way this powder has reduced the stains on my mouth and for a quid I think it is doing a good job. It isn't a powder I would buy regularly and it is only a purchase I wanted to buy since I stopped smoking and spotted an old powder I used to use many years ago. It is worth a quid.

                      It has whitened my teeth and cleaned them well, not irritated my gums or tongue and just left my mouth feeling nice and refreshed.

                      I don't think it is a family powder and none of my family have used it and only I have been the user since I am the only one who used to smoke. I am going to look around for a paste which will help some of the remaining stains on my teeth and once I have visited my dental nurse who cleans my teeth I am sure the rest of the stains will be removed.

                      A little messy I must admit but apart from the messy powder it does a good job of cleaning and removing stains but it is just a quick fix powder.

                      I rate it 5 stars.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Easy to style hair.

                        .
                        I like to style my hair with a styling product which helps my style remain in place most of the day. I like Vo5 products because they hold my hair in place and on windy days my hair doesn't look like a scarecrow.

                        This product comes housed in a metal tin and the clay inside is fairly solid and not a runny consistency. It is fairly easy to scoop from the tin but I do have to scoop it fairly manually because it is set in the tin and not like a lotion or cream. It isn't solid but is fairly firm.

                        Once I have scooped a small amount from the tin I rub it between my fingers to soften it up so I can work it into my hair easier. It feels sticky on my fingers but softens and becomes more of a creamy texture on the fingers.

                        I then work it into my hair beginning at the root area and styling my hair so I can get the style I require which is always the same and spikey. It is easy to style the hair and work it into the roots. It is manageable for short hair and I find it my hair has grown a little too long I can still style it but find it is easier when my hair is cut shorter and trimmed.

                        It holds my hair in place most of the day without having to use any more of the product. Using too much does leave too much residue on the hair and it then weighs it down too much and doesn't give it a good lift. It doesn't feel solid on my hair after applying it and it doesn't look like I am wearing hairspray or a gel. It doesn't look shiny on the hair or too dull but it does look like a natural matt look.

                        My grandson's use this clay when they sleep at my home and have a bath or shower and it styles their hair really well indeed and again using very little of the clay to style it. They use a little less of the clay for styling their hair because they don't have quite as much hair on their heads as I do being an adult.

                        It is easy to wash from the hair and doesn't leave any residue or leave it feeling rough.

                        This product I like quite a lot and like the way it holds my style in place most of the day. When I get home after work I do find my hair is still fairly uplifted but not as much as when I began my day but that happens using any product I have used so completely normal for the products I have used.

                        It cost £3.89 for a tin and it is good value for money. A good price indeed for styling the hair. The tin does last a long time because you don't need to use a ton of it to style the hair.

                        I will keep on buying it because I like it a lot.

                        I rate it 5 stars.

                          Disadvantages

                          Good price. Hold rubbish well indeed.

                          I buy and use these liners quite a lot because they are a good price and you get a good amount of liners for the price. I use quite a lot of liners for various reasons but mostly for my rubbish in my kitchen bin.

                          These liners come housed on a roll with a paper label around it. Nothing special about the packaging. They are white in colour and plastic. They are joined together and easy to pull apart from the perforated join holding them together on the roll.

                          They are fairly large and fit a swing bin very well indeed without them rolling from the top of the bin and falling inside it. They are a thin plastic but strong enough to hold the rubbish but I would say don't wait until the liner is full to the top because when it comes to taking the liner from the bin it would be too heavy and then split the liner. I did this mistake when I first used them and the rubbish fell onto my kitchen floor and a waste of the liner and of course having to pick up all the rubbish and clean the floor.

                          I can tie the liner when I remove it from the bin and carry it to my bin in my garden. I have 2 bins in my home, one for general rubbish and one for recycling, the liners are good for both purposes.

                          I use them in my garage for storing odds and ends so that I know where they are when I need to find them. I place old cloths and rags into the liners so I always have a cloth handy while doing my jobs in my garage. I use them also for collecting leaves from my garden so that I can then just tip the leaves into my recycle garden bin without having to carry them by hand and dropping them again. My grandchildren help to do this and the liners are light enough for them to carry them to the bin.

                          I use them also in my garage to stand paint tins onto the liners so that any paint that is dripping from the tins will fall onto the liner and not onto my garage floor and make a mess. It is hard to remove paint from a concrete base so the liners just help to protect the floor from spillages.

                          They are a good size and measure 120cm by 76cm so a good size to hold rubbish inside them.

                          You get a lot of liners in the roll for 89p, there are 50 liners so a good amount for this price. They are a good thickness plastic if you don't over fill them with rubbish and use them wisely so not to rip them. They aren't the thickest plastic around by they do serve the purposes really well indeed.

                          I recommend these liners, they are a good price and worth the money. I like them a lot and will keep on buying them to save me money.

                          I rate them 5 stars.

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          Helps plants grow well.

                          Lots of plants live in my home and we often have them bought for us from our children and grandchildren as gifts. We like to keep some of them in our conservatory and like to make sure they live for as long as possible so we don't upset our children grandchildren and they know we take good care of the plants. I buy this plant feed because it always feeds our plants well.

                          It comes housed in a plastic bottle and it is easy to just squeeze the bottle for the liquid to drop from it and you can squeeze the bottle a little harder if you want a lot of drops from the bottle. You can easily get the amount of drops you need without a lot of the liquid flowing from the bottle. I can judge how many drops I need to use each time. The liquid is a dark brown colour and is like a water consistency but slightly thicker.

                          I just pour some cold water into a small watering can I use for watering my plants and just drop around 5 to 10 drops into it. Really depends on how many plants I am wanting to feed that day as to how many drops I use each time. Sometime I only need to feed a couple of plants and so only use half a can of water and use 5 drops and other times I feed all of the plants and use 10 drops using a full can of water. I do move the can with the water inside just to mix the feed well into the water. It mixes really well indeed and in a couple of seconds.

                          This feed helps my plants look more alive and the leaves looking a nice colour, I have some with green leaves and some with brown. It just helps the colour look more colourful and helps them to not droop and look half dead. Is a nice feed for plants which also have flowers and buds which haven't quite opened and it just helps the buds on their way to flowering well. It also helps the flowers last longer and not to die so quickly, also helps for brighter coloured flowers which look far better than a dull colour.

                          This feed also helps dying plants, my sister gave me a plant which was dying and one she didn't want any more in her home, I took it home and fed it with this plant feed and in a couple of days it came back to life again and healthy looking. It has continued to grow well since feeding it with this plant feed. I think it works really well indeed for dying plants and ones which are looking a little droopy. The feed just helps feed the plant after a couple of feeds.

                          The bottle is 175ml and I bought it for £3 from a garden centre and it doesn't look a large bottle but it does last a very long time because you don't need to use a lot of drops each time so the bottle does last for a long time and worth the price.

                          I will keep on buying this plant feed, it keeps my plants alive and helps the leaves and flowers remain a nice colour. I recommend it for any plant lovers. My plants look nice around my home and the feed will keep them alive hopefully for many years to come.

                          I rate it 5 stars.

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          Washes hair and body.

                          Right Guard products are good ones to buy and when I spotted this shower gel on offer I decided to buy it to save me some money. I hadn't tried this one before and since it was on offer for a price not to be missed I popped it into my trolley.

                          It comes housed in a plastic bottle which has a flip top. The gel is a smooth texture and a thick gel so it doesn't drip from the bottle. It has a menthol smell and is very uplifting and quite a strong smell and fresh. It is very invigorating and has quite a cooling effect on the skin.

                          It lathers really well indeed and the smell doesn't fail to remain when having a shower. It also is a gel to wash the hair and body. I have a full head of hair which is fairly thick and I don't need to use a lot of the gel to wash it well. Using this gel means it saves me time in the shower because I can wash my body at the same time as washing my hair so I can jump into the shower both morning and night time and then get on with my day or the rest of my night at home.

                          The smell is masculine and some of my grandson's have been using some of my gel when they jump in the shower at my home and they have told me they like it a lot. So is suitable for younger boys and not just for adult men.

                          It is a good one for taking to the gym with me and saves me having to carry a shower gel and shampoo in my gym bag. Saves time messing about finding bottles in my bag too.

                          It is easy to rinse from my body and it doesn't dry the skin or make it feel rough. The gel feels soft while showering and is a very good one indeed when I have been at the gym and are really sweaty from doing my work out. The gel tends to cool my body instantly and refreshes it while I am showering.

                          I love this shower gel and it really is a good value price of just the £1 I paid for it on offer. The bottle size is 250ml so a good sized bottle which is going to last me a while because you don't need a lot of it to wash the body.

                          It cleans well indeed and I come home from work sometimes really dirty and my hair can be quite dusty too and this gel just cleans my body and hair well without it leaving my hair or body rough. My hair feels actually really soft indeed and it is a formula which doubles up for washing both the hair and body at the same time.

                          I will buy it again and it is going to be a favourite one to buy even when not on offer because I like it a lot.

                          I rate it 5 stars.

                            Advantages

                            Disadvantages

                            Help head cold and runny nose.

                            Whenever I have a cold I like to work it off and not take any medication, but sometimes when I have a more head cold and a blocked up nose I give in and buy a cold relief product from a chemist or supermarket. These capsules were the pills I bought the last time I had a bad cold.

                            They are housed in a strip of the capsules which are green and yellow colour and oval shape. They are easy to swallow with water and are tasteless I cannot taste any after taste in my mouth after or while swallowing them. There are 8 capsules in each strip and 16 in total.

                            The dose is to take 2 of the capsules every 4 hours but no more than 8 in a day. Taking 2 does ease a thumping headache really well indeed and it takes about 20 minutes for them to take effect and ease the throbbing. It does take a few doses though before you feel much better. My last cold wasn't too severe but I was constantly sneezing and had a runny nose. It did take around 4 doses and the next day before my nose stopped running and I felt a lot better and my head cold completely disappeared.

                            They do contain paracetamol so they are not to be taken with any other medication which contains paracetamol because you may overdose on the paracetamol. It is best to either take these capsules to ease the headache or take your favourite brand of paracetamol. I don't even take these one dose and the paracetamol tablets the next dose. I stick with one brand and don't mix the two. That way I know how many I have taken from the strip so I don't take too many and forget I have taken them.

                            For aching muscles I just have a long soak in the bath and then take some of these capsules with a hot drink and then go to bed to sleep and to sleep off the aches and pains. The next morning I usually feel a lot better because a cold is a just a cold and flu is far different and with flu these capsules I don't even think would help because flu symptoms are far heavier and a stronger medication would be needed to ease symptoms.

                            This product hasn't upset my stomach and just worked well indeed to relieve my cold symptoms.

                            The price for these capsules is 60p for the pack of 16. Good price indeed for 16 pills to help ease a head cold and to help a runny nose.

                            There is a leaflet to read inside the box and I would suggest reading it before taking this product.

                            I will buy these again and I recommend them for the price.

                            I rate 5 stars.
