      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great for tired eyes

      I bought this for myself as a treat for Christmas this year. I had a baby 8 months ago and she has turned into the worst sleeper ever so thought anything was worth a try.

      The product certainly looks the part I think the packaging makes it look much more expensive then it actually is.

      The jar I got was the 15ml one I didn't want to get a really big one in case I didn't like it. The jar has a screw lid and a wide neck making it very easy to get the product out. Also in the pack is a spatula that you use to apply the product.

      I use the product after I have done my usual cleansing routine. It's very simple to use and only takes a minute to Put on which is good because I hardly have any spare time. I use it by putting small dots of the product under my eye and then just rub it in.

      The great thing is that I only need a really small amount and it goes a really long way. Install have loads left and I've used it loads.

      So now the big question has it worked. I think it has my bags under my eyes have definitely reduced and the skin in this area is much smoker and looks healthier I'd definitely recommend it to others.

      Not for me

      My daughter just got this doll for christmas as it was something she had wanted for ages here Nana bought her it.

      She has already got the baby annabelle so I was keen to see what this doll had to offer.

      The doll comes in a lovely package with quite a few accessories which include:- nappies, a dummy, a bottle, an ice cream, a potty, a bowl and spoon and some "baby food".

      My daughter was keen to get started as soon as she opened the package. The thing that I thought was lacking first of all were any clear, consise instructions it took my husband and my dad to figure out how to work her which was quite entertaining to watch but also quite time consuming.

      The basic functions of the doll are that she has a dummy which when you put it in her mouth makes her fall asleep. The bowl and spoon can beused to feed her the fake food. The doll only comes with 2 packets of this so you are expected to buy more of this once it has been used. The feeding of the food we found quite a messy experience and not particularly easy. I certainly wouldnt buy more food if it is this difficult to do. The bottle that it comes with can be used to feed her with water and this can just be refilled from the tap. The water makes her cry real tears when you squeeze her arm. The water also goes through her system and makes her wee which my daughter found highly amusing. The only problem we had with the water and the nappies is that when we took her in the car my daughter had fed her some water and made her wee and the wee soaked through the nappy and went all over my daughter and the car seat which wasnt great so not sure what we did wrong there.

      My daughter has played with the doll quite a bit but it is not as good as I expected and certinly not as good as the baby annabelle in my opinion.

      She is fully bathable, although because she has holes for her "wee and poo" it's a bit of an effort getting all the water out of her. Because of this she doesn't require any batteries and does not make any sort of noise although her limbs are fully moveable.

      This doll is still a favourite of my Daughters and with all the accessories and clothes available, there are so many different modes of play to enjoy.

      Summary: Little girls will love playing Mummy

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great as a treat

      I was given this shampoo as a gift for christmas - not sure if my sister was trying to tell me something!!!

      My hair is a bit wild at time especially if it gets damp it does have a tendancy to just do its won thing.

      I was excited to use this product as I had heard good things about this product but had never used this in the past as I never seem to take the opportunity to treat myself.

      The product cdlaimed that it smoothed frizzy hair and that this would last for 24 hours!! I would be seriously surprised if this was true.

      The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle in the shower was the smell it was gorgeous!!! It had a really fruity and girly smell. The great thing about it was that after I had styled my hair and gone to bed it still smelt lovely the next day when I woke up which is unusual.

      The product is packaged well and is easy to use whilst in the shower unlike some other products I have used in the past even when my hands were wet and slipy I was still easily able to get the product out and use it.

      I didnt need much of this to get up a really good lather and my hair is quite thick so I was surprised by this. I can feel the quality of the product when I used it because it felt really thick and luxorious.

      After I got out of the shower and styled my hair I was really surprised how smooth and silky it felt and it was not frizzy at all. I was at work all day and it really did stay in good condition and did not go frizzy, It must be good because several people commented on it that day (or does that mean it normally looks awful!).

      Overall I was very happy with this shampoo it is quite pricey to buy yourself but worth it if you feel more confident with your hair it really did work for me

      great fun product

      I bought one of these recently as a treat to myself and I loved it!!! I saw it in my local boots store. I had not noticed them before my friend had told me about it because she knows I love the soap and glory products.
      The puff is basically a ball of fluff.

      It can be used either in the shower or bath. It is really gentle on your skin.

      I suffer from exzema and find loofah too rough on my skin so I hoped this would be a bit nicer to my skin and I was so happy it was.

      When I first used it for the first time I was in the bath. I poured a bit of my soap and glory shower gel onto it and began to rub it onto my skin. I was really surprised by how much more than normal the gel lathered up it really did make a big difference.

      My skin felt so much smoother than normal after I had used it. My skin felt like it had been exfoliated aswell as cleaned so it was a bonus. It comes with a little strap on it so you can hang it up in the bathroom which is good so it doesn't get lost. I was surprised by how cheap it was. I paid just over £3 for mine which I thought was very reasonable compared to some of the other soap and glory products.

      My kids love using it because of how much the shower gel lathers up my daughter especially seems to find it really entertaining.

      great for a treat

      If you have read my reviews before you will know that I love the soap and glory products so was excited to give this body wash a try I hadn't seen it before but as usual it smelt gorgeous!!

      When I bought it they were on offer 3 for 2 so I got a bargain, if it hadn't been on offer it would have just cost me less than £7 which I think is expensive for a body wash although with soap and glory you are guaranteed quality.

      I love browsing the Soap & Glory products in my local Boots Store. I've tried a lot of products from Soap & Glory in the past and I'm a huge fan of their body products, especially their body washes.

      The great thing about this is that it has a pump dispenser on top which makes it easy to use in the shower.
      When I used it that night I found I hardly needed any it really did go a long way and I only used 2 pumps for my whole body so I hope it will last me ages.

      The bodywash lathered up really well I used one of their shower puffs which also was good and I think this helped lather it up more than normal. I used it directly onto my damp sking.To

      The great thing about this was it felt lovely on my skin and I felt really nice and clean afterwards. As always the smell was gorgeous and stayed on my skin for a long time after. It also makes the bathroom smell nice which is a bonus... I think the body wash and other products feel luxorious and make you feel as if you are pampered.

      great for summer ready legs

      My friend told me about this product recently. I had never used one before I had always shaved with a razor but am forever cutting myself so when my friend suggested this I thought id give it a go.

      I bought this from my local Boots store. Im not sure if this is the cheapest option but it was the most convenient for me so that is why I chose Boots.


      The epilator came in a nice box with a little cleaning brush so that you can keep the epilator nice and clean after use. It is very easy to clean and only takes a couple of minutes so definitely worth doing to keep it in good condition. I have always used it in daylight but if you wanted to use it at night it comes with a little light to help you see what you are doing. I cant comment on what that is like as I didn't try it.

      I have used it quite a few times now and think it is really good. I expected it to really hurt from the way my friend described it but once you get used to it I found it really wasn't painful.

      I think it works best if you go quite slowly as it seems to get more hairs than if you rush. There are 2 different speed settings I have only ever used the fast one as it has worked fine for me

      It is very easy to use you really cant go wrong. I have found that my legs stay nice and smooth for ages longer by using this so I am so glad I bought it. I think it has saved me loads of time and also stopped my legs getting covered in cuts from the razor.

      great summer product

      I fancied a change from my normal shower gel recently so was excited when I saw this recently on the shelf of my local supermarket. I wanted something summery and fresh smelling so this looked perfect.

      The shower gel said that it was limited edition so I bought a bottle straight away. The bottle looked great it was a lovely dark red color which I really liked the look of. The bottle was in the usual shape for this brand and very cool looking.

      The shower gel was not on offer which I wasn't surprised about if it was a limited edition. It cost me £2.50 which I didn't think was too bad as I have used this brand before and they are very good quality.

      When I tried the product for the first time it smelt lovely. As soon as you open the bottle you can smell it. The smell really reminds me of summer - not sure if thats because of the strawberries. I used mine on my shower puff but you don't have to I just like it because it always makes a really good lather.
      The great thing is that you hardly need to use any of the gel because it lathers so well so the bottle will last you ages. The gel is easy to get out of the bottle. You can stand it on its end so that the gel runs to the part where the gel comes out which makes it easy especially when you have wet hands in the shower.

      I was really impressed with the look and feel of my skin when I got out of the shower it was really moisturized and soft which is great it also smelt gorgeous for ages afterwise which I liked because it made me feel fresh and clean.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great product

      I have just written a review on the shampoo in this range and bought this conditioner at the same time so thought id write a review on this too.

      I got it on offer in my local supermarket so it was half the normal price. The bottle was 250ml and I got it for £1.

      I love conditioners and always use them on my hair, they leave it smooth and soft and much easier to manage. I also use it on my daughters hair as hers seems to get quite knotted over night if I don't condition it.

      The bottle is white plastic and has a shiny effect on it. I think it looks a lot more expensive than it is. The fact that it is a different color to the shampoo is good so you don't get them mixed up in the shower.

      The conditioner was easy to use. The bottle comes with a flip lid so its easy to handle in the shower without risking spilling any.

      The consistency of the conditioner is thick and it spreads easily over your hair, I found the first time I used it I put on loads more than I needed. The instructions just direct you to apply it directly to damp hair after you have finished washing it. I leave the conditioner on my hair for a couple of minutes just to give it chance to soak in. I don't know if this is really necessary its just what I have always done.

      The smell is lovely and fruity it stays on your hair after you come out of the shower I could smell it strongly when I dried my hair afterwards. Does It Gloss Though?:

      The conditioner has definitely helped my daughter's hair from getting knotted and it seems to make it easier to manage and more glossy looking. I will definitely be buying another bottle of this as I feel it really works.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great all round product

      My hair is quite dry and can get very frizzy. I do a lot of exercise and am always washing and drying my hair so it does have an impact on it.

      I always try out new products hoping to find one that has a miracle cure so when I saw this on offer in my local supermarket recently I thought id give it a go.

      The one I bought was a 250ml bottle. It was on offer for £1 which I thought was really good value. The bottle is really good it looks more expensive than it is and its bright pink color automatically attracts you to it. The conditioner Is the same design except that bottle is white in color. I like the fact that they are different colors so you don't get mixed up with which is which in the shower.

      The shampoo bottle is well designed it has a flip top which is really easy to open. The logo is on the front
      The packaging suggested that you also use the conditioner as most shampoos do. I had bought the conditioner too so did intend to do this.

      When I used it for the first time I followed the instructions which were the same as normal. Basically I wet my hair and then applied a small amount of the shampoo and lathered it up. I then rinsed it off. The smell was lovely and filled the whole bathroom, it was a kind of fruity smell.

      The fact that the bottle had a flip lid was good and made it easy to use. I found that I didn't really need much to get a good lather so the bottle will last well.

      The shampoo is thick in consistency and seemed to leave my hair soft and smooth once I had dried it. It did still go a bit frizzy but I think it is definitely less than normal.
      I would definitely use this shampoo again and have recommended it to friends.

      Disadvantages

      great for a treat

      I really love body shop products and am always looking for something exciting to try. My friend recommended this to me lately so I thought id give it a try.

      The product comes in a flat tub the lid screws off easily and it is a wide opening so you can easily get your whole hand into the tub to get the product out.

      When I used the product for the first time I really loved it straight away. As soon as you open the tub you can smell the product it has a lovely refreshing smell that makes you feel clean and lifts your spirits.

      The scrub itself is quite runny but I could feel it rubbing against my skin and can imagine that it was removing dead skin sells. It was easy to wash it off when I had finished. I think that the scrub somehow moisturizes your skin too because when I got out of the shower my skin felt nice and moist it was as if I didn't really need to moisturize at all which was great. The skin was also soft so I would definitely say it had done its job. The best thing was that like other body shop products the fragrance stayed around for ages on my skin so I felt good all day.

      I will definitely be using this again and would especially think it will work well as an exfoliator before you apply fake tan or when you are away on holiday, its quite expensive but I think it is worth the money and will definitely recommend it to friends.

      a great gel

      I recently bought this product for my son as he had kept on nagging me to get him some. He is a little obsessed with Lynx products so of course when he saw this recently he had to have it. All his friends were using gel according to him so he had to have some!!

      I bought this when it was on offer in my local supermarked. I bought a tube it was around £2 as it was on offer, im not sure how much it was full price but I thought this was good value for a named product.

      The gel said that it would not flatten the hair but keep it as you wanted it and would bounce back!

      We found the gel was very easy to apply the fact that it comes in a tube is good as its easier to get out and you don't waste any as you often do when they come in a tube.

      The gel isn't sticky which is good because that's what I always hate about gels when you end up with it all over your hands and it feels awful.

      The gel did smell really nice (thats because its Lynx according to my son!)

      The best thing was that it didn't leave the hair greasy looking it looked very natural but yet you could tell it was held in place well.

      We used it for the first time when he was going to school - he was so excited to use it he literally jumped out of bed that morning.

      My sons hair really looked good at the end of the day and he had played football at school and been running about so I would say that it worked really well.

      He has since used it every day and it has lasted well you really dont need a lot and he has quite thick hair too so if you have shorter hair you would need even less.

      I have recommended this to other people already I think its definitely a good buy.

      great product

      I always buy avon products, there is a lady who sells them at work and im always tempted by the offers and the clearance booklet. I was excited recently when I saw this on offer as I was going on holiday and wanted my nails to look nice.

      The nail varnish is available in loads of different shades so you will always find a color that you like and I bought a few different ones that I thought would look good with my holiday outfits. I always like to paint my toe nails when we are on holiday too so wanted some choices.

      When I got the nail varnish I was impressed by how it looked the colors I had chosen looked much better in reality than they had in the booklet. I found that the nail varnish was easy to apply and the brush was good quality not one of those that has all the bristles sticking out all over the place. The nail varnish seemed to dry really quickly. I am normally quite impatient and end up smudging it but with this within about 3 minute it was dry.

      I found that the nail varnish lasted well and it was put to the test because I was doing quite a lot of swimming, I was also on the beach quite a lot yet it still lasted until I wanted to change the color I think it would last about a week if you didn't want to change it before that.

      I was surprised by how good value they are, If you pay full price they are around but they are often on offer so you can pick them up cheaper.

      I would definitely recommend these especially if you are someone who likes to change the color regularly because you can afford to get a few when they are on offer.

      great for a summer drink

      I am normally a wine drinker but fancied a change when we had a barbecue for fathers day recently. I hate beer and lager so thought id give this a go.

      Magners is a well known cider brand it has been making cider for over 75 years. I have tried their other ciders before but never the pear one so was keen to give it a go.

      My husband went out to the local supermarket and bought me a few bottles to try. The bottles we bought were the 568ml ones. The bottles were the normal kind, green glass. On the labels it advised that the cider was 4.5% which is a lot lower than the wine I would normally drink, that's a bonus then I can drink twice as much! The bottle recommended that women only drink 2-3 units per day.

      It was a nice hot day when I tried it so I poured my cider out into a glass with loads of ice. I found the cider had a cool and crisp taste and the pear flavor was very distinctive. The smell was lovely too it was a very summery kind of smell. The cider did not taste very alcoholic at all it was very easy to drink I think it would be easy to forget it had alcohol in it and drink it quickly if you get carried away easily.

      The cider is really refreshing especially with the ice on a hot day it is lovely. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes normal cider as a nice change or as a change from what you normally drink.

      great product that does what it sayd on the tin!

      This is another of the soap and glory products that I have tried recently and as with all the others I was not disappointed which has just added to my addiction. I will definitely be putting all their products on my Christmas list this year!

      The cleanser is especially for the t zone area it is a cleansing milk and claims to be one of the best you can buy.

      I always buy my soap and glory products from Boots although im sure you can get them in other places.

      I like to buy them from Boots as they have a lot of good offers and also I get advantage points which I build up and then use at Christmas to treat myself!

      On the product info it says that it is for all skin types. My skin is quite sensitive as I suffer from eczema but this did not seem to affect it at all which is great. The cleanser is white and quite thick not like some of the other cleansers I have used. It smells lovely and refreshing. The thing I also like about it is that it comes with a pump so it is really easy to control the amount you are getting out. I have used some other brands in the past and ended up wasting loads because it has come out fast.

      When I used it for the first time I found it really easy to use. I did it by applying it to cotton wool but that is just my personal preference. I noticed that my face felt much cleaner when I had used it and I could see that it had removed a lot of dirt from the cotton wool.

      The price isn't cheap although as I mentioned earlier its worth waiting for the offers if you can. If not it will cost you around £7 but it does last for a long time even when you use it twice a day as I do.

      I would definitely recommend this to people as it's a great product.
