E45 Review

This post first appeared on suesreviews.me.uk on April 16th 2013

I have a patch of dry skin that never seems to be hydrated enough, no matter what I use. A few years back I had tried the E45 range but was never really sold on it, it always seemed to leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. That said, it did do the trick with the dry skin I had experienced back then, but I was always reluctant to buy any more of it as the after effects it had put me off.

When I was accepted for this trial I did wonder what I was going to do with the big bottles of lotion I was sent. I envisaged using the product once and discarding it, due to the greasy residue it had previously left on my skin.
I couldn’t have been more surprised. The lotion is light and leaves my skin feeling so soft – and it has cleared my problem areas up too – a win/win situation.

This is definitely a product I would recommend to all of my family and friends. It is a product I will be only too happy to purchase after this trial is over.

Wonderful product that leaves your skin soft and hydrated.

Review of Easy Veet Wax.

Not being a huge fan of at home waxing products I was keen to see if this new system had indeed made this process any easier. I had high hopes about the product, after reading the blurb that came with it and reading some bits and pieces online I thought that this was going to be the product that actually sold me on at home waxing.

How wrong I was !!!

I found the product very difficult to use and it certainly did not remove ANY of my leg hair. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am, but I guess that’s just how it is.

There is no way I will be buying this product in the future and I am still not a convert to at home waxing.


Vanish Oxi action stain remover.

Vanish Oxi action stain remover.
I have been trying out Vanish Oxi action stain remover as a Bzz Agent. I have tried stain removers before and thought they were ok, but I’ve never tried this product before.

I had a tomato based stain on a black t.shirt sleeve. I haven’t had that much luck getting it out, so haven’t worn the item for a couple of months. When I received the Vanish product to try I thought I would see if it could tackle my long standing stain.
I have to be honest here, I didn’t really think that much would change, after all, I had tried a few times to get rid of the stain.

But the stain vanished. I was quite amazed when I discovered that Vanish Oxi stain remover actually worked.


Sure Review

As a member of the Bzz campaign I am asked to take part in trials and surveys, testing out goods and so on. My first trial was the new sure compressed deodorants. I understood what they were trying to sell and I looked forward to my parcel arriving.
When it arrived I wasn’t certain that the product would live up to the claims the company were making. Those claims were that the smaller, compressed tin of deodorant would last just as long as the 150ml size tins. I read all of the literature that came with the package and understood that the nozzle has been changed so that less gas sprays out, but more antiperspirant ingredient is delivered. This technology allows for a smaller sized tin, less packaging, more environmentally friendly.

I haven’t actually bought a 150ml size tin for a while now so I am unable to show the difference directly, however, I can say this; I buy the 250ml size tins of sure deodorant as I always find the smaller tins don’t last as long as I want them to. The trial was always going to be interesting for me, I wanted to see how much use I was going to get out of this new size, how long it was going to last for and if it lives up to the hype that is surrounding it.

So far, I have been using it for 11 days and I still have what feels like at least 3/4 of a tin. I use the product twice a day – same great smell, same great freshness and the product lasts just as long as the usual size tins do. In the past when I have used smaller tins I would probably be over half empty by this stage – 11 days. At this point in the trial I can safely say that the product is living up to its hype and lasting longer than a regular size tin of sure.

It is understandable for any person to be a little dubious about the claims sure are making with regards to this product. But I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this product does exactly what it is supposed to and lives up to the claims sure are making about it.

Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed. The price is just the same too, so you really have nothing to lose.


For the past couple of years I have been reviewing on my blog.  I usually review books but on occasion I review other products and have decided to move the product review to this blog; it makes it easier for me to point potential companies in the right direction and not have them get lost in a sea of book reviews.  I guess I could have tinkered about with my other blog, but a) I wasn’t entirely sure what to do and b) I like how the two things are separate.  I’ll probably still have my usual musings, hey, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t ;p but I will be posting product reviews on this blog too, as and when I get them.
