5 x LetsSwipeThat Microfibre Cleaning Cloths Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Perfectly portable and effective soft little cloths!

Inside the Amazon box, this item arrived as five individually packaged cloths, inside a single cellophane packet containing a nice “thank you” message and a coupon code offer. Seeing the thank you message is a really nice touch for when you open the box.

The five soft cloths are separately held in their own strong little plastic pouches, that have a strap for the flap to hold it closed. This means that you can drop one in a bag for any time use on your phone or glasses for example, and it won’t come out covered in sand or grit or other muck from inside the bag (maybe not all bags are like the ones in our house!).

Vansky LED TV Backlighting Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really helps the presentation of TV shows!

This item arrived in a (slightly battered, but attractive) retail box, containing the single strip light with attached USB cable. The strip is relatively thin and long, and takes up most of the back of our 48 inch LED TV. The reverse of the strip has a peel off strip hiding some 3M double sided tape.

The 3M tape allowed the strip to be stuck to the TV very easily, but heat is already making it peel a bit after a couple of days, so that could be stronger. The USB cable is very long, and should easily reach the USB port of most TVs. If you don’t have a USB port on your TV, it’s easy enough just to get a standard USB extension cable and power it from a plug socket.

Victop® Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit FM Transmitter Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Four Stars

Nice little unit – wish it could play music over Bluetooth!

This item arrived in a retail packet, with white back and clear front, showing the packet contents, which were the device itself, a nice little 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack lead, a spare fuse, and a simple instruction leaflet.

The car power socket plug is hinged to the device in a connector that folds to just under 180 degrees, so you can angle the device to suit your particular placement or vehicle. The colours and glossy finish suggest this is a really high quality device, as does the nicely backlit LCD screen. I love that the device has a USB socket at the front, so you can still charge your phone whilst using the device as a hands free kit.

3 x Turata Lightning Cable Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Great little cables, better than the originals, great value!

These cables arrived in a nicely printed retail presentation box, inside a protective polythene pouch. The three cables themselves are held inside a foam structure inside the box.

The connectors at each end were protected from scratching by thin cellophane wrapping, they are securely moulded to the cable and won’t pull or fall off. The cables are slightly thicker than the original Apple ones, and feel slightly heavier duty.

Lüso Small Black Leather Wallet Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really nice, small, quality leather wallet.

This wallet arrived packaged in a very attractive gift type box, inside a sealed protective plastic packet. Opening the box showed a branded wax paper wrapping around the wallet, which had a cardboard strap around with the logo again printed. The wonderful smell of fresh leather came straight out of the box as it was opened too.

The leather appears to be extremely high quality, very soft yet holding its shape. This is a small wallet, and has no coin pouch. There are two note slots, four visible card slots, plus a windowed card slot and a couple of pouches for remaining cards.

MemorySoft Lumbar Support Cushion Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really supportive cushion, with long elastic strap and clip to hold tight to any chair.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a thin polythene bag. There are no instructions or directions for use included, but franky I feel it’s pretty self explanatory – put the curved bit towards your back, clip the strap around your seat, sit!

There’s a big zip across the centre of the back of the cushion, allowing you to remove the cover from the cushion itself. It’s nice that the cover is removable, meaning it can be washed or cleaned when required. The mesh material feels high quality, and everything seems well stitched and held together.

Pasonomi Crystal Clear Air Cushion iPhone 6/6S Case Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Protective yet pretty case, really enhances the natural look of your phone.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. Inside the packet was this very lightweight case, very clear, with a nice dotted pattern on the back. It was clear that attention had been paid to the corners to ensure they were protected in case of accidental drop.

The holes in the case for microphone, camera, speaker etc, are all in exactly the right place, with buttons covered yet very usable, and the hole for the mute button very accessible.

EasySleep Anti-Snoring Nose Clip Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Comfortable little clip that seems to work.

This item came well packaged, in a retail blister pack (that you didn’t have to attempt to cut open with a circular saw or similar, it just popped open easily), which contained the clip itself, inside a handy circular protective storage box.

The clip is relatively small, at about the size of a pound coin, very flexible, and contains two small magnets in the end which seem to hold the device steady inside the nose. This means no pressure against your skin holding it tight in there, the soft rubbery plastic just rests gently in there.

Shopping in nightwear… WHY???

What is it with people wearing nightwear to go out in public at the minute? Am I just an old person missing out on some new fangled young person’s fashion thing? I’m just not getting it.

I don’t even like to open the curtains if I’m in pyjamas, I don’t want the world seeing my nightwear – I think it’s not appropriate. Opening the door to the postman in just a T-Shirt and pyjama bottoms has me in palpitations for hours. So why oh why is it all of a sudden acceptable to go out in public dressed like this?

Golden Bell Fairy Tail Keychain Set Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really nice little set, lots of options and really well made.

First up – disclosure. I don’t know much about Fairy Tail or the Celestial Spirit keys. I was asked to review this item by the seller, and a friend’s daughter is very much into Anime and Manga, so we thought it could be a perfect gift. This review is based solely upon the quality of the product and the contents, rather than its resemblance to the original items, although to be fair, from the research I’ve done, it’s very, very good!

The set came in a lovely presentation box, really well printed with glossy pictures of the characters from Fairy Tail. The box has a magnetic closure, so you can keep it to store and display the keys long term.
