Boss Orange Man - a holiday impulse buy but will it last?

  This blog will actually start when I get back from skiing but a little background. I don't normally buy from airport shops but I did buy the Chanel Allure Homme Sport (see another blog) from one on a recent holiday so here we go again. Reasonably at random I chose Boss Orange Man (40% off helped) and decided to make it a new long term test. Let's see where this little adventure goes ☺  Okay so starting with the basics: I paid £31 odd for the 100ml which at Boots would have been £52.50 so I'm going to assume the higher price as I need to keep in mind what I would ...

Chanel Allure Homme Sport let's see how we do

After my last trial of fragrances I've been having a think about which one to try next and so after much testing I selected Chanel Allure Homme Sport. This from the Chanel website: "Jacques Polge has created ALLURE HOMME SPORT around the 4 facets - fresh, sensual, woody and spicy - that compose ALLURE HOMME. In this creation, the fresh facet deliberately takes precedence over the other facets and embraces a new sensuality. A silver lacquered glass bottle, a black rubber cap encircled by a steel ring, and fine black lettering with a touch of red... Jacques Helleu's design is subtly inspired by the codes of sport. Combined with the unique luxury and ...

Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher vs Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now

I tried the Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now back in July 2012 and I found that it was very effective but pricy (interestingly it's exactly the same price two years later!). The 100 ml price would be £51.74. Now the Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher costs nearly twice as much (£99.90) so how would it compare.   Okay so how to test them: the left hand will get the Opulentia and the right will get the Sally Hansen. Which will be worth the price? (or will both be considered too expensive!). You can find details of the Opulentia here: and the Sally Hansen here: Week 1 Okay so other than commenting one my photographic skills (you try ...

Should I use a Polar Loop (or any activity tracker)?

A departure from my normal blogs, this is one from my other area of interest: fitness. Wearable technology, very "in" at the moment but really do you need to wear something all of the time to help you with your fitness and health and even if you do, would you? You can look at Amazon's wearable technology page here and the Polar Loop is here on Amazon. Just to show you how wide this type of product has spread you can buy these things at Tesco and many other high street shops (the Argos page is here). There are many different ones and I'm not going to go into the diferences here ...

The Braun Series 7-790cc Clean and Renew Electric Shaver, is it really worth £299?

I was very lucky to have been selected by BzzAgent to test the Braun Series 7-790cc Clean and Renew Electric Shaver. Genuinely this has been a fantastic opportunity not just because there is no way I could have afforded a razor at this price but also because it's a great honour to be selected to review it and then to share my views. You can see the razor here on the Braun site and here at Boots. I've added a picture from their site but I've also got some pictures that I've taken that I'll add another time. The razor is standing next to the Clean & Renew™ System which is in ...

Gucci "Made To Measure" is it as expensive as I think it is?

You can see the product page here and my review which basically boils down to "I really like this but I can't afford it". Well I decided that I'd really test this so I went to Boots and spent (too) long choosing a men's EDT to test longer term and really really decide if it's worth staying with one more expensive fragrance. The choice eventually boiled down to Made to Measure (at £97 for 100ml) and Boss Orange (£48.50). You can see the product page the the Boss product here. I like both of them but as you can see the price is pretty much double for the Gucci product and I'm ...
