      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I usually use Gillette for women shaving gel, but my husband was using Original Source tea tree and mint shaving gel, so I thought I would try some of his. The original mint source range of products is inspired by the bush remedies of Ellen Wakeman, daughter of missionaires in New South Wales. This product use's natural oils and not synthetic fragrances. It is not tested on animals either which is good. It come's in a 200ml can which is green in colour with a clear lid. The can stands out because of the colour of it. All the writing on the front is in black and the tea tree and mint is written in a red box. The nozzle is really easy to hold down so the gel comes out really easy. The gel is dark green in colour and is quite thick in consistency. Once you rub it on to your skin it changes to white. The gel is really soft to touch. To use this shaving gel, wet your skin with warm water. I do my legs in the shower as it is easier. Then squirt the gel in to your hand and rub in to the required area. Shave and then rinse off. I find it rinses off really well. Once you have rinsed it off, your legs felt really cold and it made me go all cold inside. It has a zingy never felt before experience for the most refreshing and stimulating shave you have ever had. This is definitely true. You don't have to use a lot in one go either as it foams up really well. I just squirted a bit out but when I first used it I squirted too much out. Obviously this shaving gel smells of mint. It's quite an overpowering smell too, so if you don't like the smell of mint then you won't like this at all. As soon as you take the lid off, the smell hits you. With it been a strong minty smell it wakes you up if you a
      re feeling tired. After using this you will be wide awake. I bought it when I was shopping in Morrions and it cost me £2.99, which is quite expensive compared to other shaving gels that you can get. It is worth the money though and I would buy it again. It also last's for ages with hardly having to use much. You can buy it from any supermarket, Body Care and Boots. The downside to this shaving gel is that once you have used it and put the lid back on, some of the gel leaks out of the nozzle. It did not irratate me at all so will be good for people with sensitive skin. I thought it might have irratated me actually because when I used the tea tree and mint shower gel, that did irratate me. I used it on my legs, bikini line and under arms with no problems at all. Both men and women can use this, but when I bought it in Morrisons it was with all the other men's shaving gels. I recommend this gel to everyone who loves the smell of mint!!

        There are different pregnancy tests to use but the one that I bought was the Predictor pregnancy test. There was no particular reason apart from the fact this is the only one in the supermarket that they had. It comes in a white and pink box and the test is a foil wrapper so you know that it has not be tampered with in any way. The box gives you details of how to use the test and there is also instructions inside the box too. The test is white and plastic and is in 2 parts. One is the stick with a pink end which you wee on and the other part is where you put the stick with the windows to see if you are pregnant or not. It is very easy to use. All you do is wee on the stick where it is pink and insert it in to the cartridge part. You need to wee on the stick for a second. Once you have done this then you just need to wait for 4 minutes for your results. There are 3 windows where your results show. The control window is to make sure that you have done the test properly. It's easy to do though so you shouldn't do anything wrong. The extra check window is where the pink dot should disappear. The result window is if you are or aren't pregnant. So if you have a oink dot in the result window and control window, then you are pregnant. If there is just a pink dot in the control window then you aren't pregnany. The pregnany test is 99% accurate and can be used at any time of day or night. I used it in the evening so that both me and my husband could see the results together. I bought my pregnancy test from Morrisons and it cost me about £5.99 as there was an offer on it. I think the usual price is about £8.99 though which is quite expensive really, though you can get 2 tests in one box for about £11.99. You can also buy it from any chemist, Boots, Superdrugs, supermarkets or Bodycare. Different places do it for different prices so it is best to hav
        e a look around. I was going to buy it this time from Body Care as they sell it for either £3.99 or £4.99 but when I went in to buy one they didn't have any left. You can use this test any day after you should have had your last period. I waited 14 days after my last period to make sure that I was not going to come on my period. The predictor detects the presence of the hcg hormone (Human Chorionic Gonadottrophin) which is produced by the body when pregnant. Waiting for those 4 minutes seems to last forever. We both kept looking at it to see what the result was. I kept thinking that the pink dot was going to disappear but of course it didn't. For more information on the predictor pregnancy test then you can phone 01480 421817. I recommend this test as it is reliable and very easy to use. Update I thought I would update this opinion from the first time I wrote it as things happened. I had a miscarriage in December of last year but have now found out that I am pregnant again and am now 38 weeks pregnant so far. We are both really excited and can't wait as it will be our first baby. My estimated due date is the 19th December so that will be a lovely Christmas present for the both of us.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I have dyed my hair a few times now as I love to change it. I used L'oreal Open Color. I decided to use this hair dye because I have used it before and I liked the colour that I chose. There are different colours to choose from in this range and these inlude blonde, brown and red's. I have only bought the different shades of red though. This time I bought Darkest Burgundy brown. The hair dye comes in a light blue box juts like all the other dye's do. There is a woman on the front of the box with her dyed so you can see what the colour will look like. It shows you the results before and after so you will have an idea if you will like it or not. My hair colour does look like what it says on the box. In the box you get:- 1 bottle of gel colourant 1 bottle of developer cream 1 bottle of after colour conditioner 1 pair of gloves 1 instruction leaflet. Each of the bottles are clearly numbered 1 to 3 so you know which one is which. They are also labelled with what they are as well. I used 2 boxes of this hair dye because I have long hair. I used to use just 1 but you can't see the colour as much as you can if you use 2 boxes of it. Before you can dye your hair you need to mix it all together. make sure you wear the gloves that are provided as the dye goes everywhere. You need to mix the colourant gel which is bottle 1 with the cream developer which is bottle 2. The developer bottle is the one you mix them in to as it has a nozzle which makes it easier to apply to your hair. It also does not leak either with it having a nozzle. Shake it well so that it mixes together. You are then ready to dye your hair. First of all you need to wet your hair but do not wash it, then towel dry it. Then apply the mixture by spreading it all over your hair and roots with the nozle on the applicator bottle. make sure you cover all your hair. As I used 2 bottles
          of this there seemed to be loads of it but I did use it all. Ohnce you have applied it all over your hair you then need to wait for 30 minutes. I put a towel around my shoulders when putting on the dye as it does go everywhere. Luckily it does wash out of towels and your clothes once you wash them as I got it on my top as well as the towel. Once the 30 minutes is up you are ready to rinse it off with warm water so I got in the shower to rinse it off. It takes ages to rinse it out as I have long hair and you have to do it until the water runs clear. I didbn't think it was ever going to run clear. The dye went all over the bath and the walls but it did wipe off. Once you have rinsed it out you can then condition your hair which is bottle 3. leave it on your hair for 2 minutes but I forgot and rinsed it out straight away. Once my hair was dry you couls see the colour and it looks really nice. I would definitely use this shade again. The gloves that you get are quite thick and long so you don't end up with it all over your hands, just everywhere else instead. When I dyed my hair it was all over my forehead and ears but I wiped it off with cotton wool and make up remover and it came off. You should not use this hair dye if you have had an allergic reaction to any other hair dye or if you have sensitive or itchy skin. I did not have nay problems at all. It has a fruity smell and smells quite nice as it has low ammonia so does not smell of that like some hair dye's do. It's not an over powering smell either. Your hair smells really nice once it is done. It is a permanent colour so will last. I have found that everytime I wash my hair and come to dry it, the dye is all over the towel. It makes your hair really soft and shiny and the conditioner has Aloa vera and Green Tea extracts in it which makes that smell really nice. I
          bough t it from Big W and got both boxes for £5 as there was an offer on hair dye's. The usual price of just one box is about £4.99. You can buy it from any supermarket, Boots, Bodycare or Superdrugs. Open Color enables you to softly lighten, darken or enhance your natural hair colour. It is not recommended for hair that is 50% or more grey. Any questions about this product then write to:- L'oreal Consumer Advisory Service Freepost WD649 London W6 8DR Or telephone the uk on 0845 399 1939 or Eire on 1850 399 931 Or visit the website on www.lorealparis.com I recommend this dye to anyone that likes to dye their hair!!!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I am always buying different shower gels, so after reading many opinions on here I decided to try out the Original Source shower gels. My favourite one is the orange and grapefruit as it smells really nice and fruity. I think it smells like when you have just peeled an orange, but it does smell lovely. I can not really smell the grapefruit though. The shower gel comes in a 250ml clear bottle with a black lid that hooks in the shower. The gel is bright orange in colour, which you can see through the bottle with it been clear. The shower gel is quite thick but not too thick compared to some shower gels that you can get which are quite runny. You only need to use a little bit too as it lathers up really well. Once you open the shower gel, you can smell the aroma in the bathroom. To use this shower gel, rub in to your body with a wet sponge and rinse off. I never use a sponge though and just put a bit in to my hands and lather in to my body, then rinse it off. The shower gel is really easy to get out of the bottle, as you just squeeze it, and some comes out. Loads does not come out at once which is good. I thought it might have dripped out but it didn't. It leaves your skin feeling really soft and smelling of oranges. Although this smell of oranges does not last for too long once you have had your shower. If you have sensitive skin, you should try it on a small area first to see if it will affect you. I am not going to list all the ingredients, but the main one's are orange oil and grapefruit oil. All Original Source products use natural oils and are not tested on animals, which they should not be anyway. You can use it for your hair, but I have not tried it with it been mainly for your body. You can buy Original Source shampoo though which is probably better for your hair than shower gel. On the sachet and the bottle it says "for the most refreshing and revi
            ving shower experience you've ever had". It is definitely refreshing and reviving. You can buy Original Source products from supermarkets, Boots, Body Care and Superdrugs. I usually buy mine from Body Care as it is only £1.99 and that is the cheapest I have seen it. Some shops sell it for £2.49 which is quite expensive really. As well as buying the bottle you can also get free samples, which I did to see what they were like. To get the free samples log on to their website at www.originalsource.co.uk and register with them. Your free sachets are 25ml in size and come in a brown envelope. Once you have tried them you give them feedback and then they will send you your next free sample. I recommend this shower gel to anyone who loves the smell of oranges!!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I love to read magazines and usually buy More and Real. For a change I thought I would try a different magazine, and decided to try New Woman. Obviously it is aimed at women, but you men can read it too if you want to. The magazine comes out monthly and costs £2.60 which is not a bad price to pay every 4 weeks. I actually bought the first one I got in Ibiza so ended up paying double the price for it. Features - There are celebrity spy's where you get information about all the celebrities. This is good for people that like gossip. Also covers different stories on real life people. Some of the features in the August edition include "I now pronounce you mr and mrs jinx". This is a story of one honeymoon and 7 disasters. Another feature is "The whole hotel burned down - except for room 327". These are all spooky holiday stories. Bloke - This covers everything about blokes. Lots of topless men to stare at, blokes tell us what is in their speedos and ways to get your money's worth out of your bloke. New Fashion - This covers everything you need to know about the latest fashion. See what you can buy for under £100, designer clothes for you and your kids. New Beauty - This covers make-up and colours to buy. It also covers perfume and hair accessories. New Body - This covers how to lie on a beach and hide your wobbly bits, and how to join the mile high club and reasons why you have missed your period and you are not pregnant. New Stuff - This includes films, television programmes, books, video's and music. Regulars - These are what you what find in the magazine every month. These include problem pages, editors welcome, lunch break, debate, star signs, stockists and out of the closet. There are 242 pages to look through and read, so it is definitely worth the money. The front page of the magazine is glossy. It features a woman and titles of some of the sto
              ries that you will find in the magazine. It is not an eye catching cover to look at, as it is quite cluttered really. The August issue there was a free book worth £5.99. This is the main reason why I decided to buy the magazine. Now that I have read it though, it is definitely one I will be buying every month. The free book that came with it is called "Pastures Nouveaux" by Wendy Holden. The downside to New Woman is that there are loads of advertisements, which I usually just skip through anyway. I think this magazine is just like one called "Company", so if you have read that, then you will know what this is like. You can subscribe for £12.50 for 6 months, but I will just buy it from the shops for now. They have a website that you can check out at www.newwoman.co.uk I have not checked it out yet though as it takes me long enough to read the magazine. I recommend this magazine to anyone who loves reading!!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I have just recently been on holiday for 2 weeks to Ibiza with my husband. Ibiza is an island in the Balearic Islands. It took us 2 hours and 45 minutes to get there and we flew with Britannia airline. We was not delayed at all going there but was delayed 2 hours on the way back. We stayed in San Antonio Bay in a hotel. We was only a few minutes away from the beach as we just had to cross a road and we was there. The beaches are all small in Ibiza but there are quite a few there. They are all kept really nice and clean too. San Antonio Bay is lively but not as lively as San Antonio. People of all ages holiday here including families, couples and big groups of people. There is something to do for everyone. San Antonio is not too far away from the bay either. It is in walking distance, or you can get a boat, taxi or a bus there. All these are reasonable prices. If you walk there like we did, it takes about half an hour to get there, which is not too long. In the bay there are many shops, restaurants and bars to choose from. There are many different types of foods to choose from including pasta dishes, pizza’s, english food, chinese, Indian and also there are take aways like chinese, KFC and Burger King. There are many shops too including groceries, Off Licence and souvenier shops. Most of the vars are open until at least 2am, but after 12am music is not allowed to be played outside, so they have to shut there doors, so you can only hear the music if you are inside the bars. Some of the bars had a rodeo which you could ride and those trampoline things where you are attached to rope and you bounce up and down on the trampoline. There are many boat trips that go to different parts of the Island. The one’s that went the most were to Calla Bassa and Calla Conta, which went every hour. These are both small places which is mainly a beach, apartments and hotels and a few shops. The trips did not take long to g
                et there either, just took about 10 minutes. There was a cruise which was for 3 hours on a Catamaran. Here you went to quite a few different places around the Island. Then you got to go to the bottom of the boat to see all the fish. After that they stopped for about 25 minutes so that you could go for a swim. Also whilst swimming, they threw bottles of champagne in which you could keep if you found one. Then just before the 3 hours was up, we all got free champagne. They played music on the boat which was all in English. They also told you about the different parts you was visiting on the Catamaran, and they told you in Spanish and English. This boat went everyday from 3pm until 6pm. There was another glass bottomed boat which went hourly, but that only went around for the Island for an hour. When we was on the Catamaran we went to a place called Calla Conta. This is a naked beach and on the rocks we all saw this man stood there naked, and everyone just looked at him as there was not anybody else naked there. For people who likes watersports, you can go Jet Skiing, Windsurfing, Scuba diving and on a banana boat. These were quite popular with a lot of people. We also visited Ibiza Town, which is not in walking distance. We got a taxi to here and it took us about 25 minutes to get there. There is also a bus to here too which was less than £1. Here you will find restaurants, bars, shops and hotels and apartments. There are quite a few clothes shops here too. There is a port where there are quite a few nice, big boats. The streets are really narrow and cobbled. Most people in Ibiza were friendly, especially rhe people in the hotel where we was staying. We got friendly with the 2 blokes behind the bar there and got free drinks and shots most nights. Ibiza is well known for it’s clubs, which are expensive to go in. Though you can get in cheaper if you buy tickets through your reps. The main clubs here include
                Privilege, Space, Es Paradis, Amnesia and Eden. The night clubs always have top DJ’s playing like Judge Jules and Dave Pearce. Most of the clubs shut at about 8am. The annoying thing about Ibiza is you always get bugged by these men trying to sell you sunglasses and jewellery. No one ever buys anything from them and they just walk around all day and ask you about 50 times in just one day. There is a scenic tour train which takes you around the Island for 2 hours. This is nice for the whole family. This picks you up and drops you off in San Antonio. You can hire out a car whilst you are on holiday here. There are plenty of car hire places around. This is useful if you want to go to different parts of the Island. You can also hire out scooters, buggy’s and mountain bikes. The weather was really hot for the 2 weeks that we was there. The day we was due to come home though it did rain but it soon cleared up again though. It was between 90f and 100f most days and we both got a good tan. Ibiza’s currency is Euro’s which is like most European countries now. We found it quite expensive here as we had to get more money out whilst we was there. Alcoholic drinks were expensive compared to over here. There was crazy golf for those people that like to play golf. Also there are arcades here too in San Antonio Bay. I would recommend Ibiza to anyone of any age as there is something for everyone.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  If you wear sports clothes, then check out www.mandmsports.com Here you will find sportswear at bargain prices. They sell the following:- Men's sports clothing Women's sports clothing Children's sports clothing Accessories. So as you can see they cater for all the family. About every 3 months you get a catalogue, but you do not need to order everytime. You can order by post, telephone, fax or on line. I always order on line as it is a lot quicker and very convenient. To order on line, just click on men's/women's/children's/accessories to see what you want. If you do know what you want, you can just type the product number in the required box. You can also search by brand names too if there is a certain brand that you prefer. Men's clothing - This includes tracksuit bottoms, sweaters, t-shirts, trainers, shorts, shoes, Jeans and Jackets. There is a lot more to choose from in the men's section than in the other sections. Women's clothing - This includes tops, shorts, trainers and sweaters. Children's clothing - This includes tracksuit bottoms, T-shirts, Jackets, trainers, sweaters and shorts. Accessories - This includes watches, caps, socks, tennis rackets, rucksacks and footballs. This is not a very big selection though. The clothes have always been of very good quality and definitely worth the money. I will now give you some examples of some of the items that they sell and for the price to:- Trainers - From £14.99 to £44.99 T-shirts - From £7.99 to £17.99 Sweaters - From £7.99 to £21.99 These prices are based on the adult clothing. Here are the prices for children's clothing now:- Trainers - From £6.99 to £21.99 T-shirts - From £4.99 to £6.99 Sweaters - From £9.99 to £11.99 So as you can see, the prices are really good, and you do save quite a bit of money
                  compared to the high street shops like JJD Sports. When you order on line, it tells you if the item is in stock or not. This is good so that you do not order items that they do not have. Brands that M & M Sports sell include Adidas, Ben Sherman, Reebok, Speedo and many more popular brands. They have been going for 12 years now and I have been ordering from them for about 5 years now. They send out 5 catalogues in a year, but you can order from them any time on line though. The site is very easy to use, and you just need to log in everytime with your customer number and your postcode. If you are not a member of M & M Sports, you can request a catalogue on line, by filling out your details like your name and address. To order items:- Phone - 01568 616161 Monday - Friday 9am until 10pm or at the weekend from 9am until 7pm. Fax - 01568 619555 Write to:- M & M Sports Clinton Road Leominster HR6 0SP Once you have ordered your items, they will come within 7 days which is really good and quick. This is if you order on line with a credit card. I ordered a few things last and they came within 3 days which I thought was really fast. If you do order by post though and pay by cheque, your order can take up to 28 days which is a lot longer. When your goods come to your house, you have to sign for them. If you are not in though, they will try and leave your parcel with a neighbour. If no one is then they will need for you to arrange another day with them to deliver. You have to pay postage costs too. This is a fixed price however many items you order. If you live in the UK then the postage is £3.99, but if you live in the Channel Islands and Eire, then it will be £5.99. These prices soon add the total cost up. If your order is over £100 though, then the postage will be free. You can order overseas but you need to phone 01568 616161 for a
                  price, and you have to order over the telephone and not through the internet. You can return any items that you do not want and you will get a full refund back. I have only ever done this once, and returned it through the post office. They usually send you a cheque or refund your credit card, depending on how you paid. The downside to this is that you have to pay to send any items back, and they do not refund you that back either. You can pay for your goods by any of the following cards on the internet, Visa, Switch, Delta, Mastercard and Solo. You pay on line for the goods before you receive them. If you order by post, then send the cheque with your order, and if there is an item out of stock, they refund you what you have not received. I have never phoned the customer care service as I have never had any problems with them since I joined about 5 years ago. They do special offers, where clothing is cheaper than what it orignally was. The special offers get sold out really quickly though as they are so cheap. Here they are selling caps for £2.99 and Adidas shorts for £4.99. They also send you a catalogue which is the sale one every so often too, so you can see what they have on offer. The quick shop is when you know what you are ordering and just type the code in. This makes it quicker than looking through everything. I usually use quick shop as I browse through my catalogue that I get through the post first. If you want to email them, then email them at sales@mandmsports.com or customerservice@mandmsports.com I have never had to email them yet though with anything. I recommend this site for anyone that wears sportswear!!!

                    I have been shopping in Manchester quite a few times now, and the one place i do go to shop is manchester's arndale centre. It is situated in the centre of manchester. The centre has 2 levels with plenty of shops to go to. It's definitely worth spending a whole day there. You can get to the arndale centre by bus, car or taxi, so there are plenty of ways to get there. There are all kinds of shops here. There is something for everyone. There are clothes shops, restaurants, jewellery shops and more. Here are some of the shops that are there:- Topshop and Topman HMV Dorothy Perkins Burtons New Look Gadget Shop Mcdonalds and many many more! There is also an indoor market too, which sells clothes, food, jewellery and more. This market sells cheaper items than the arndale centre itself though. To get to the indoor market, you just go in the arndale center and it is in there. The arndale centre is a large place and takes quite while to get round it and look in all the shops. It's best to spend the whole day there really. There are plenty of places to have something to eat too like mcdonalds, burger bar, gregs and more. If you are looking for a particular shop you can look on the maps, which show you where everything is in the arndale centre. This is very useful, especially if you have never been there before. The toilets are kept clean and tidy as there are always cleaners in there. There are always cleaners cleaning the arndale centre too, so its always kept nice and clean. I'd definitely recommend anyone who loves shopping to come here as all the shops are under one roof and its a good day out for people who love shopping.

                      I usually use Pantene shampoo, but for a change I thought I would try the Dove Shampoo to see what is was like. It comes in a 250ml white bottle, with a blue flip lid. There is a picture of a dove on the front of the bottle above the word Dove. It is not an eye catching bottle to look at, as it is just plain and simple really. It smells nice and you can smell the shampoo for quite a while once you have washed your hair. It smells like most of the Dove products actually, which is kind of fruity and soapy rolled in to one. It is not an overpowering smell either. To use this shampoo wet your hair, lather shampoo in to your hair, rinse off and repeat if necessary. I only ever do it once as that is all that is needed and I have quite long hair really. I only use the size of about a 50p coin everytime I wash my hair, as it lathers up really well. The ingredients in this shampoo are Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium C12-13 Pareth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betane, Glycol Distearate, Dimethiconol, Glycerin, Tea-Dodecylbenzenesulfonate, Lauryl Glucoside, Arginine, Panthenol, Hydrogenated Palm Glucoside, Carbomel, Sodium Chloride, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Parfum, DMDM Hydantoin, Ppg-9. It contains 1/4 moisturising milk which cleans and pampers your hair, but I found it just did the same as Pantene really, and that does not contain the moisturising milk either. It hydrates your hair without weighing it down and leaves it soft and shiny. To be honest though I found it the same as Pantene. It is dermatologically tested. I bought this shampoo from Tesco and it cost me £2.49 which is quite expensive compared to other shampoo's. I would probably buy it again though. You can buy it from any supermarkets, Boots, Superdrugs or Body Care. They also do quite a few offers on this shampoo and the conditioner too, of buy one, get one free (BOGOF). I never tried the conditio
                      ner, so can not say what that is like. If you get the shampoo in your eyes, rinse it out straight away. I got some in my eyes, and I found that it does not sting them, which is good. Once I got out of the shower, and was brushing my hair, I found that my hair was not at all tangly, which I was really pleased about. This shampoo is for all hair types, so anyone can use it for any hair type, including dry, normal and greasy. It is for frequent use and I used it about 2 or 3 times a week. The bottle does last you quite a while, depending on how many times you wash your hair. I would recommend this shampoo as it leaves your hair soft and shiny!!!

                        I've always used sure deodorant for as long as I can remember now. I have tried others like Dove, but I always go back to Sure. I use sure mainly because it smells nice and it is very effective. I always buy sure deodorant from morrison's supermarket, and it costs £1.49 for a 200ml tin. This is a good price to pay for the size of the deodorant, and it does last you a long time too. I usually have it for about 2 months, then need to buy a new one as it's nearly running out. Before use, you need to shake it, and then press the button down and spray about 15 cm's away from your under arms. Sure lasts all day. I only use it once a day and do not need to reapply it at all. It keeps me dry and smelling nice all day. I used to use cool blue by sure but now use cool pink. They both smell really nice and are not too strong either. There is also cool cotton which smells really fresh and clean, so I have been using that one quite a lot lately. There are other one's that you can get too. You can use sure after shaving too, as it doesn't sting your skin at all. But you are not to use it on broken skin though as that would really sting your skin. The only bad thing that I can say about sure is that in the summer time, when its really hot, it leaves white marks. Any other time though it doesn't and is fine!! Not sure why it does in summer though! This really shows up if you are wearing a dark coloured top too. It's very flammable so keep out of direct sunlight or away from smoking. You can buy sure deodorant from many shops like supermarkets, boots, superdrugs and mnay more. It's best to look around as prices vary in different shops. I'd recommend anyone to use sure as its very effective, cheap and smells very nice.

                          My hand's get really dry in winter, so I always put moisturising creme on them. The one I use is Nivea soft intensive moisturising creme. It comes in a white 75ml tube with a blue box saying Nivea soft. It is nothing special to look at really. The main reason I decided to choose this one was because my Mum uses it as well. The creme is white in colour and quite thick. It smells nice too, just like most other moisturising creme's do. You can use this creme for:- hands face all over your body I mainly use it for my hands but have used it on my face too. My husband uses it occasionally too as he has dry hands too. It absorbs quickly in to your skin and is not at all sticky like some are. It leaves your hands and face feeling lovely and soft. It contains Jojaba oil which is to mourish the skin and vitamin E to protect it's moisture. Other ingredients in this creme for anyone that is interested are aqua, Paraffinium Liquidum, Myristyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Myristyl Myristate, Cera Microristallina, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Coco Glycerides, Dimethicone, Buxus Chinensis, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Sodium Carbormer, Lanolin Alcohol, Cetyl Phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, propylparaben and parfum. As well as the tube you can also buy the moisturising creme in a tub which is a bigger size than the tube. I have always bought the tube though as it lasts me for ages. I bought it from The Body care shop and it cost me 99p which is a real bargain but at the time it was on offer. It now costs £1.99 which is not that bad a price to pay really, and it will last you a long time. I only use it once a day, which is first thing in the morning.You can also buy it from Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets. I have also seen it in Wilkinsons as well. I would recommend this moisturisin
                          g creme to anyone with dry skin or anyone who uses moisturising creme.

                            I usually shave my legs, but decided too use Immac hair removal mousse for a change. It comes in a 200ml, white and orange tin, and the orange part of the tin is bright and catch's your eye. The mousse is white in colour and quite thick. To use Immac hair removal mousse:- * Use in the bath or shower * Shake can before use * Cover the hair evenly by spraying where you want it. * Leave on for 8 minutes * Rinse off using sponge provided. I used it in the shower, and after 8 minutes I took it off, and noticed there was still some hairs there. I thought what a waste of money, and got my razor and used that instead. They put a sponge in the lid, for removing the cream, which is a good idea. Of course when I first picked it up, I could not find the sponge for at least 5 minutes. It is very easy to use but does not remove all unwanted hair. I think the normal Immac works better than the spray. I think I will stick to my razor in future though. You can use Immac removal mousse for your underarms and legs. You should not use it on broken skin. I used it only on my legs. Immac is supposed to leave you hair free and feeling smooth, but it definitely did not leave me hair free. This Immac is supposed to smell of citrus, but I do not think it did. All I could smell was the normal smell of Immac, which is not nice at all. You do get used to it after a while though. When spraying the mouuse on my legs, it was quite cold, but after a while you get used to it. If you toch the mouuse once it is on your legs, you end up with no mousse there and you then have to respray it again. My own fault though, as I should not have been touching it until it was ready to come off. The ingredients of this Immac are Aqua, Urea, Butane, Potassium, Thioglycolate, Sodium Hydroxide, Propane, Isobutane, cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Silicate, Petrolatum, Carbomel, Butyrospermum Parkil Butt
                            er, Parfum, Hexamethyldisiloxane, paraffin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Sodium Gluconate, Ceteareth-20, Butylene Glycol, Ascorbyl Glucoseamine, Citrus Medica Limonum (lemon) Fruit Water. You should do a test if you are using Immac for the first time. Try it on a small area first to make sure you do not have a reaction to Immac. I felt tingling on my legs, which means I am sensitive to it, but I can use normal Immac with no problems. You should not use this mousse on the following areas:- Spotty/broken/iratated/sunburnt skin Face Breasts Genital Area Eye Brows Do not use near direct sunlight or near open flames either, as the can is highly flammable. You will probably use this Immac 2 or 3 times on your legs before it runs out, which is not that many times at all. I bought this from Boots and it cost me £4.99, which is expensive and definitely not worth the money. You can also buy it from Superdrugs too. For more information on this product write to:- Reckitt Benckiser PO Box 118 Clevedon BS21 7ZH Or phone uk on 0845 769 7079 Or Eire on 01 661 7318 I do not recommend this to anyone as it does not work and it is expensive!!!

                              I have always used Sure deodorant, but after reading quite a few opinions on Dooyoo and Ciao on Dove deodorant, I decided to try Dove moisturising cream anti-perspirant deodorant. The deodorant comes in a 150ml can, which is white with a blue lid. There is also a picture of a dove, but it is nothing eye catching to look at though. It is made my Faberge which is a well known name. The deodorant smells nice and fresh, and the smell does last all day. It smells really soapy. Before use, you should shake the can and spray 15cms away from your underarms. You will only need to use it once a day too as it will keep you fresh. Some deodorants, you need to keep applaying throughout the day, but with this one you don't. It contains moisturising cream, which makes your skin feel nice and soft. The ingredients in this deodorant are as follows:- Butane Isobutane Propane Cyclomethicone Aluminium Chlorohydrate Disteardimonium Hectorite Parfum PPG - 14 Butyl Ether Octyldodecanol Silica I bought this deodorant from Tesco and it cost me £1.99, which is not that bad a price to pay. It also lasts a while too. I prefer spray deodorants to roll on's, and there one is a spray deodorant. You can also get dove in roll-on's though if you prefer. It does not contail alcohol and is dermatologically tested. It is highly flammable, so do not put near direct sunlight or an open flame. Another good thing about this deodorant, is it does not leave any white marks either, especially when you wear a dark top. It does not sting either like some deodorants do. Also after shaving your under arms, it does not sting. If you have any questions or comments about this product, then write to:- Consumer Bureau Elida Faberge LTD Freepost Admail 100 London SW1A 2XX Or phone them free on 0800 591720 or in Eire on 1800404060
                              I recommend this deodorant to anyone as it keeps you dry all day!!!

If I know what I am looking for I type it in, otherwise I just search through the catergories like new releases. There are loads of links to click on for bargains. You can get DVD's for under £5, but these are older films that have been out for ages, rather than the latest films. You can check out the new stuff that are coming out soon too, to see if there is anything you would like. DVD's - You can either buy region 1 or region 2 DVD's. Here you can check out the top sellers, what is coming soon, recent releases and the top 100. The price of the DVD's range from £11.99 to £17.99, which is cheaper than in the high street shops. I have bought quite a few DVD's from here and saved at least £3 or £4 on each one. Music - Here you can buy all the latest chart albums as well as older albums. The price of the albums range from £8.99 to £13.99. There is also a clearance sale, where you can get selected albums for £6.99.

You can order any item that has not come out yet, and they will despatch it to you as soon as it does. They deliver to many different countries including UK, Austria, Cyprus, Germany, France and many more. There was too many to list. If you need to return anything, then you need to phone first for return authorisation. I have never had to return anything though, so can not see what it is like. You have to send the goods back within 28 days of receipt, and they will either give you a replacement or a full refund back. They only do this though if the item you bought is faulty, so if it isn't, then you can not send it back. To phone them on returning an item call 0845 800 1020 or write to:- play.com returns P.O Box 192 Jersey JE4 8RP Once you have ordered anything, you need to give your name, email address, delivery address, credit card number and expiry date.

                                  If you want to voice your opinions, then log on to www.mycoice.co.uk This site rewards you with high street or net retailer gift vouchers, for your opinions. I joined up with this site last August now, and my points have added up quite slowly but I am now not too far off getting my voucher though. First of all you need to register, with your name and address and a password. Once you are registered, you are now able to participate in polls. For every poll you do, you get points. Each poll gives you between 0 and 25 points. Not a lot I know. The downside is you have to have 2000 points before you can get the voucher. This means that 10 points is 1p, so 2000 points is £20. It would probably take you a while to get that many points too, as they only have at least 3 polls at a time, and it gets updated weekly. So you would have to go on the site pretty often for your points to add up. I usually check the site every day for new polls, so that I do not miss out on any. The polls are on different subjects each week, for example, HRT, Bin Laden, The Jubilee and many more. Myvoice started out in Japan in 1999, but people can go on the site from anywhere. It has about 60,000 members from Britain so far, which is loads of people really. For every poll that you do, you are enetered in to the monthly draw. I’ve never won anything yet though on the monthly draw. Occasionally they send you surveys to fill in through your email, so that you can earn even more points. You do not get many of these though. Also to earn more points, you can answer some questions about yourself and each one earns you so many points. The site is very easy to use and loads up quickly too. Every time you go on to the site, you need to log on with your username and password, or you can tick a button so that it remembers you every time you log on. The vouchers are for marks and s
                                  pencers, boots, dixons, virgin megastores, WHSmiths, choice vouchers (for argos, woolworths, hmv, dolcis, mothercare, bhs, JJB, H Samuel) and leisure vouchers (pizza hut, TGI FRidays, thresher, victoria wine shops, marriott hotels, david LLoyd centres) You can always email them if there is somewhere you would like a voucher for. To email them about a place not listed then email them at incentives@myvoice.co.uk So as you can see there is a wide choice of where you can spend your vouchers. They do keep adding to the list though. If you did not want a voucher, you could always give it away to charity instead. You can do this when you have 1000 points, which is £10. You can always check how many points you have by going to my account. It tells you how mnay you have got. You do have to be over 18 to receive the voucher and live in the UK or Northern Ireland, otherwise they give your points to charity. I have heard people say that they have received there vouchers, so at least you know you get them and it is worth going on this site. It's definitely worth checking this site out as it's free and you get vouchers for voicing your opinions, but do not expect to get the voucher in a hurry though as your points will not go up that quickly though.
