BIC Soleil Scent Lady Triple Blade Disposable Shaver 22/10/2017

I thought BIC was a stationary manufacturer

BIC Soleil Scent Lady Triple Blade Disposable Shaver Introduction I got this product as part of a subscription box and was really surprised to find out that BIC manufactured something besides stationary (I know that at some point they also produced underwear but I think that that is best left unmentioned). Usually I am not too fussy about razors, as long as they don't tear my skin to shreds. I enjoy using both disposable and more durable ones alike, so I was rather excited to give this product a go. About this product The product description makes a number of interesting claims that I wanted to address in this review. It begins by saying that this product has a comfortable handle to allow for greater control when shaving. The three top blades are designed to give a close shave and to rinse easily, which assures an even shave for a longer period of time. The product is also scented - the lovely lavender smell is supposed to make you feel more relaxed and pampered when shaving. Directions for use # Prepare skin with shaving gel or cream (I highly recommend this) # Shave in the direction of hair growth # Moisturise after shaving (I think that this is vital) About this product I have quite enjoyed using this product and I think that it performs really well for its price. The handle is indeed quite a bit easier to use than most other disposable razors. Its shape allows for greater control and it's less likely to slip out of your hand, which allows you to avoid unnecessary cuts. Your fingers fit nicely into the curves of the ...

Febreze Fabric Refresher Classic 16/10/2017

Introducing the faux sense of cleanliness and freshness

Febreze Fabric Refresher Classic Introduction Not everyone enjoys the smell of fresh laundry because quite often it is dominated by the irritating scent of detergent. Sometimes that smell can be so overpowering that it lingers on your clothes for too long; the artificiality of the detergent scent often makes your clothes seem less clean than they really are. Or maybe your clothes just don't feel as fresh anymore and you would like to "liven them up" a little so that you could wear them for a day longer. Sometimes various odours, especially those from food, can cling onto clothes and make them slightly less pleasant to wear. Or possibly your favourite pet has left its not-so-welcome scent all over your favourite couch or carpet. Not to worry, the Febreze Fabric Refresher is here to help. I never really experienced these problems myself but I decided to give this product a try anyway because I wanted to see whether it would make any difference. If it could leave my clothes and other fabrics feeling more fresh, then why not use it, I thought. Ultimately, my impression of using it has left me with somewhat mixed feelings. About the product As its name suggests, this product is designed to instantly eliminate fabric odours, whether they come from cheap detergent or particularly smelly food (or a different unpleasant source). This product isn't simply restricted to clothes, it can be used on any fabric surfaces throughout your home, so it also acts as somewhat of an affordable room spray. The particular product ...

Baylis & Harding Lemon Blossom and White Rose Luxury Hand Wash 09/10/2017

Luxury care for your hands

Baylis & Harding Lemon Blossom and White Rose Luxury Hand Wash Introduction I am usually not a particular fan of liquid soap and I prefer to use soap bars, but recently I decided that it would be quite useful to have some soap available near the kitchen sink since I often end up washing my hands with the dishwashing liquid. I settled for liquid soap because it's a lot easier to dispense and would not get in the way of my cooking. When in the shop, I decided to try something slightly different by going for a slightly more up-market brand. I have previously used Baylis and Harding products (I have definitely gifted a lot of them), and I remember being really satisfied with their performance, so I was expecting the same result from this Lemon Blossom and White Rose hand wash. About the product Baylis and Harding brands their products as "affordable luxury" because they are not particularly expensive but they do go the extra step to make the customer feel pampered and more satisfied. The particular product that I am reviewing is part of their Royale Bouquet collection that features a lot of other products, including hand lotions and body washes. The line has a variety of lovely smells to offer as well as a gorgeous packaging design. Ingredients Aqua (Water), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Cocamide DEA, Parfum (Fragrance), Glycerin, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Nitrate, Methylisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 15985 (Yellow 6). My ...

Springforce Toilet Tissue 13/09/2017

Decent toilet roll for a good price

Springforce Toilet Tissue Introduction It appears rather difficult to review products such as toilet roll because there is seemingly very little to say about it. It's such a basic necessity that we never really give it too much thought; at least I don't. I do however want to try to deliver a comprehensive review that will hopefully distinguish this particular product from others and help potential customers make an informed decision. About the product The Springforce toilet tissue is a product that is both manufactured and packaged in the United Kingdom. The toilet rolls are made up of 2-ply toilet tissue and there is an average of 200 sheets per roll. It is the same size as all other toilet rolls and is sold in a pack of 9. This product is white with a small pattern and it has no scent to it, as some other toilet rolls do. My impression I must mention that this product is really cheap, which makes it very convenient for just about anyone, whether you are on a budget or simply see no reason to spend an excessive amount of money on something as basic as toilet roll. This already makes the product good value for money because it will last you for a long time, meaning that you will save money in the long run. I quite like how this product is made up of 2-ply toilet tissue: this makes it more durable and more effective at its job. The last thing you want is your toilet roll ripping apart, which this product thankfully doesn't do. It feels rather soft to the touch and is gentle towards your sensitive ...

Dreamies Cat Treats with Chicken 07/09/2017

My cat absolutely loves this

Dreamies Cat Treats with Chicken Introduction I'm sure that all of us animal owners out their love their pets to bits and cannot help but spoil them from time to time. Giving your pet treats on a regular basis may not be the best of ideas but I believe that it's not the end of the world if you let them have a bit every once in a while. My cat is a really picky eater but he has absolutely fallen in love with these Dreamies cat treats - there's nothing he wouldn't do for one of them. I like seeing him enjoy them and I'm glad that I can occasionally make his meal a little more fun with something nice to enjoy at the end of it (or just randomly throughout the day). About the product Dreamies is a range of cat treats that are square-shaped and have a crunchy outer shell with a soft centre. They come in a range of flavours: chicken, duck, beef, cheese, salmon, and turkey. The official website claims that all you have to do is shake the packet and watch your cat come running; funnily enough, this is actually exactly what happens with my cat. There is also a health care range of these treats: the anti-hairball, skin and coat, and vitamins and omega 3. The manufacturer says that treats are an important way of strengthening the bond between you and your pet (especially with a cat because all they do is eat and sleep). They can only be used as motivational tools for training but I think you would have a hard time training your cat, or at least I did with mine because he just couldn't care less. Tips for healthy ...

Nivea For Men Shaving Gel Sensitive 04/09/2017

Improved shaving but not sensitive enough

Nivea For Men Shaving Gel Sensitive Introduction I bought this product for my partner but I use it myself from time to time because I don't really see any difference between male and female shaving gels, aside from the price. Often products such as deodorants, creams, and moisturisers that are sold as products for women specifically don't differ much from those that are marketed as products for men, which is why I occasionally try out these male-oriented products as well. Normally I wouldn't actually bother buying shaving gel or foam because I can make do without it, yet this time I thought that I would try to compare how differently my skin would react if I were to use a soothing shaving gel. About the product This product is primarily marketed as a sensitive shaving gel that is designed to protect irritable skin and allow for easier shaving. This supposedly improved formula contains 0% alcohol (no Ethylalcohol), is really gentle, and fragrance-free. The primary ingredients in this product are chamomile and hamamelis that soften the hair before shaving to provide a closer and more comfortable shave. It offers immediate relief and protection to irritated skin. Its skin compatibility has been dermatologically approved by men with sensitive skin. The end result is supposed to make your skin feel pampered and protected. Ingredients Aqua, TEA-Palmitate, Oleth-20, Isopentane, Glycerin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf Extract, Maltodextrin, Tocopheryl ...

Hot Fuzz (DVD) 03/09/2017

Specifically British humour

Hot Fuzz (DVD) Introduction I'm usually not a particular fan of comedy films because I tend to find them either not funny or just too silly. This time however I decided to give this film a go - I have previously seen similar movies which I have actually enjoyed. I was a bit worried at first though because my first impression was that this film was going to be too silly for me to enjoy. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. About the film *Title - Hott Fuzz *Release Date - 2007 *Genre - Action, comedy, mystery *Run time - 2 hours 1 minute *Age rating - 15 *Director - Edgar Wright *Stars - Simon Pegg, Bill Nighy, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Bill Bailey Storyline This film follows the story of London police officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) as he is transferred from the centre of the metropolis to a small provincial town that appears to harbour a dark mystery. I have marked the story only as "satisfactory" because the twist in the end, although funny, is actually quite silly. In that sense the story isn't particularly inventive or clever, but it's not too bad either. The twist is silly enough to be a shocker and funny at the same time. Otherwise, the progression of the plot is very interesting and it isn't your usual cheesy action comedy. I really enjoyed it because it's different and I like it when films try to be creative, even if the end result isn't particularly stunning. There are some really good jokes written into the story that have made me laugh out loud, which doesn't usually ...

TRESemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo 02/09/2017

Professional haircare within the comfort of your home

TRESemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo Introduction I try to take really good care of my hair because I see it as an important asset of my appearance and I just generally like having attractive hair. This is why I am usually really picky when it comes to choosing hair care products and quite often I would be prepared to spend a little extra to make sure that the product that I use is of a very good quality. I have heard a lot of good things about Tresemme products and I have used them before but this particular shampoo was new to me when I picked it up. About the product The Deep Cleansing shampoo is described as a classic that is designed to refresh your hair for added body and shine. The special formula that it contains removes build-ups and impurities with ease. It's infused with vitamin C, which is pitched as its selling point. The manufacturer claims that this shampoo is gentle enough for daily use and makes your hair feel as though you have just left the salon. It is supposed to make you hair look shinier and feel lighter as a result of the deep cleansing. Ingredients Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium chloride, Ascorbic acid, Biotin, Citric acid, Disodium EDTA, Isopropyl alcohol, Niacinamide, Panthenol, Parfum, Polyquaternium-10, Polysorbate 20, PPG-12, Sodium acetate, Sodium benzoate, Sodium hydroxide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, CI 61570. My impression This is definitely a product that I have been really impressed with and would recommend it to ...

Radox Shower Gel Coconut Kiss 02/09/2017

A smooth coconut touch

Radox Shower Gel Coconut Kiss Introduction I tend to always choose different shower gels whenever I go to the shop because that way I'm able to try out various brands and scents. Normally I don't go for anything that contains coconut because I am not a particular fan of its strong smell, but this time I decided to give it a try. I was attracted by the name of the product, "Coconut Kiss" - it made me think that this shower cream was going to be very gentle and feel very pleasant on my skin. Judging by the 5/5 score, you can tell that I was not disappointed with my choice. About the product Radox bath and shower products are very common and are luckily not particularly expensive, compared to other products. This product is part of their "Feel Gorgeous" range, which also contains "Passionfruit Splash", "Berry Burst", and "Cherry Blast". It's actually called a shower cream as opposed to a shower gel. The official website advertises the product as having a sweet coconut fragrance The blend of natural ingredients in this product is supposed to give you a fresh start to your day and evoke scenes of tropical paradise. Ingredients Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Parfum, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, Sine Adipe Lac, Polyquaternium-7, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Trideceth-7, Disodium Lauryl Phenyl Ether Disulfonate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Benzyl Alcohol, Coumarin, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde. My impression ...

Sensodyne Repair And Protect Toothpaste 31/08/2017

An effective toothpaste

Sensodyne Repair And Protect Toothpaste Introduction Toothpaste is a really important aspect of your daily routine so it's vital to choose products that are effective and take good care of your dental health. Normally I tend to go for whitening products because the natural colour of my teeth is slightly more ivory than white, but this time I decided to try something slightly different. This particular product advertises itself as a "Repair and Protect" toothpaste, so I wanted to try it out to see whether or not it would improve the overall condition of my teeth. About the product This Sensodyne toothpaste contains something called "NovaMin Technology", which identifies vulnerable areas and forms a tooth-like layer over the exposed dentine region. This product also helps protect your teeth from sensitivity by forming a protective layer over sensitive parts of the tooth. The official website recommends using this product twice a day on a daily basis in order for it to take full effect. It contains fluoride, which protects your cavity; the product is also advertised as having a fresh taste. Ingredients Glycerin, PEG-8, Calcium Sodium Phosphosilicate (NOVAMIN), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Monofluorophospate, Aroma, Titanium Dioxide, Carbomer, Potassium Acesulfame, Limonene. Contains Sodium Monofluorophosphate 1.08% w/w (1450 ppm fluoride). Caution The manufacturer does caution users to keep this product out of reach of children and not to allowed children under of 12 to use it, unless specifically prescribed by ...

Palmolive Moisture Care Soap 30/08/2017

Pleasant soap with a number of different uses

Palmolive Moisture Care Soap Introduction Whenever I buy soap I usually try out different brands and scents because I would get bored using the same one all the time. I was attracted by this particular product because the packaging has the words "Moisture Care" on it, which made me think that this soap would not only be cleansing and refreshing but would also take care of my skin. Unfortunately, a lot of different types of soap and products that contain soap dry out my skin. I was hoping that this product would prove to be different. About the product Palmolive Naturals is quite an ordinary brand that can be found in a number of different shops for very affordable prices. Its products don't promise anything spectacular and they aren't in any way outstanding, yet they are good for daily use, especially if you're on a budget or if you dislike spending a lot of money on fancy bath and body products. I have previously used Palmolive soap but because it was ages ago I could only remember that I was generally satisfied with how it performed. The Moisture Care soap bar has a good reputation online: according to various reviews, people are quite happy with it. This product is supposed to moisturise and take acre of your skin by softening it and enriching it with the olive oil that is its primary ingredient. Ingredients As mentioned above, the primary ingredient in this product is olive oil. Usually I quite enjoy products that contain olive oil because it does not irritate my skin and it actually does a good ...

Nivea Soft 29/08/2017

Great cream, no complaints

Nivea Soft Introduction Nivea products have always been among my top favourites because they are cheap and effective. They may not be incredible in any way but they do their job well, which, in my opinion, is more important. I have previously used a lot of their products but I have never really properly used this particular cream. I must admit though that I have been impressed with its performance and I would certainly recommend it to just about anyone. About the product The Nivea Soft is a moisturising and softening cream for hands, body, and face. The primary ingredient contained in this product is jojoba oil, which is what gives it the pleasant softness. The formula also contains vitamin E, designed to enrich your skin. Ingredients Water, Myristyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denatured, Stearic Acid, Petrolatum, Myristyl Myristate, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Coco Glycerides, Dimethicone, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (Jojoba), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Polyglyceryl 2 Caprate, Phenoxyethanol, Lanolin Alcohol, Fragrance, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Cetyl Phosphate, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben. My impression I think that this product is great for a number of reasons. I really like how it is a three-in-one, as I can use it for my hands, face, and body. I realise that this may sound like a bad idea, but I have tried this product on different parts of my body and it has ...

Doctor Strange (Blu-ray) 07/07/2017

An atypical Marvel film (film review only)

Doctor Strange (Blu-ray) Introduction I can't say that I've seen every single Marvel film or read all of the comics, but I tend to enjoy the various bits of Marvel content that I do come across. I am quite a big fan of Iron Man as a superhero and I liked those films, despite the over-abundance of action and CGI. I have referred to Doctor Strange as an 'atypical' Marvel film because it is not quite your usual superhero, action-packed movie. I have enjoyed watching it and I may even come back to it; I hope that this review is going to be helpful and that you too would enjoy this product. Synopsis Doctor Strange, a very famous and talented surgeon, finds his life undergoing a radical transformation when a horrific car accident robs him of his ability to use his hands. When all contemporary forms of medical treatment fail him, Strange decides to explore slightly more traditional medicinal options. He stumbles upon a cast of very powerful magicians that are battling evil forces, which are planning to corrupt and destroy the rest of the world. Soon he finds himself facing a difficult decision - should he return to his previous life or embrace his newly discovered existence? Reception As a Marvel film, I don't think anyone should expect Doctor Strange to have received particularly outstanding rewards, if any at all. These kinds of films aren't really made to inspire or move the viewer but they are good fun to watch now and again. However, this particular film has been nominated for an Oscar for Best ...

Colgate Total 30/06/2017

Great classic toothpaste

Colgate Total Introduction I normally use whitening toothpaste even though I am always terribly skeptical about its performance. This time, however, I decided to settle for a more ordinary product that doesn't promise to whiten your teeth or protect your gums. It may not be the best toothpaste on the market but it does the job well and it's very affordable. Allow me to share my experience of the Colgate Total toothpaste. About the product The Colgate Total group of toothpaste products includes a number of different toothpastes: *Advanced Deep Clean *Advanced Fresh + Whitening Gel *Advanced Whitening Gel *Advanced Whitening Toothpaste *Clean Mint Toothpaste *Daily Repair Toothpaste *Fresh Mint Stripe Gel Toothpaste *Whitening Gel *Whitening Toothpaste *Clean in Between *Original Care The particular product that I will be reviewing is the Original Care Toothpaste - probably the most 'boring' one on the list, as its title doesn't promise much. The manufacturer claims that this product has a pleasant mint taste that leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh. It is also supposed to fight germs for up to 12 hours and prevents the spread of bacteria. The fluoride formula in the product is also designed to strengthen your teeth and prevent the development of cavities. It is also supposed to help prevent plaques, gingivitis, tartar build-up, and bad breath. Ingredients This product and all other Colgate Total toothpaste products are gluten free. This particular product contains a combination ...

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner 24/06/2017

Moisturising beautiful tan

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner Introduction Self-tanning is a very tempting product to use because it helps you save money on professional tanning and allows you to do it by yourself within the comfort of your home. Personally, I don't usually use these kinds of products but I decided to give this one a try because it was recommended to me by a friend. I must admit that I have been rather impressed by its performance; the thing that surprised me the most was how easy it was to use the product. I always thought that it is very difficult to get a good tan in a DIY kind of setting but I have been proven wrong. About the product In 2011 this product won the Harper's Bazaar Hot 100 Best Face Self Tanner, which I suppose is very much justified. It claims to be 'liquid bronze in a bottle', helping you create a perfect look for a special event or to simply achieve a healthy skin glow. It is described as being 'as refreshing as water and as gentle as milk' with lots of vitamins to produce the perfect face and décolleté tan in just a couple of easy steps. It promises to keep your skin soft and healthy with a streak-free, easy, and fast tan. Ingredients The featured ingredient in this product is aloe vera: it is what enriches the product with its softening, moisturising, and regenerating capabilities. The rest of the ingredients in this product are: Water, Cyclomethicone, Dihydroxyacetone, Cetearyl Isononanoate, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, C14-22 Alcohols, Erythrulose, PPG-5 Ceteth-20, ...
