Philips Norelco NT3355/60 Nose Trimmer
Philips Norelco NT3355/60 Nose Trimmer
Price: $13.33
3 used & new from $13.33

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely design, and it works well., February 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Philips' Nose Trimmer is well made, smartly designed, and works well.

The trimmer is nicely constructed. The plastics are all high quality and it feels well screwed together. It's quite small, and will travel easily. It reminds me of the handle of an electric toothbrush, size-wise. Included with the trimmer are a cap, and two eyebrow trimming combs.

The Philips is incredibly easy to use. Included you'll find the AA battery that powers it, and to install it all you need to do is twist the bottom half of the trimmer counterclockwise and insert the battery. Once the battery is installed, if you turn the bottom half clockwise, you'll turn the trimmer on.

To trim nose/ear hair you insert the trimmer into your nose/ear and rotate slowly while moving it in and out. Using it in the ears is fine, but I found the sensation of it up my nose to be odd. I have another trimmer, a Panasonic, that has a circular rotating blade with a small conical top, and I find that one a lot more comfortable to use in my nose. With that said, the Philips has the trump card of being able to trim your eyebrows. You just slip one of the included combs over the blade and go from the outside of your eyebrow towards your nose in one stroke. It trimmed my eyebrows quickly and evenly. I was very impressed. In use the trimmer is quiet, and even after using it for a few minutes, it does not get hot.

Cleaning the Philips is easy. Just run the blade under some water, and let the blade sit in a cup of water for a couple of minutes. You can also twist off the blade part, and clean it more throughly, if you'd like.

All in all... a great trimmer, with nice accessories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for all cold drinks., February 25, 2015
Siggió's copper mug is different, attractive, and well made. It also works well for all sorts of cold drinks.

The Siggio copper mug is sized like a typical coffee mug. It's large enough, without being obnoxiously big. The mug is very well made. The copper has a nice patina to it. It's nice and shiny, but far from perfect, and looks very rustic and organic. The handle looks to be done in brass and has the same finish qualities as the mug. The handle is firmly attached to the mug, and the top of the mug is rolled, so it's not sharp or awkward to drink from.

I used the mug to drink ice water, since I don't drink alcohol. At first I was hesitant, and I worried that it might make the water taste metallic, but that wasn't the case at all. If anything, I detected a slightly crisp taste.

I washed the mug by hand using Dawn soap and a sponge. It came out well. I would not recommend dishwashing it, or using hard cleansers.

All in all... a great, and fun, mug.


OXO Good Grips Baker's 4-Piece Silicone Decorating Bottle Kit, Clear
OXO Good Grips Baker's 4-Piece Silicone Decorating Bottle Kit, Clear
Price: $9.99
4 used & new from $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, basic set., February 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
OXO's Cake Decorating kit is well made and nicely designed, in the typical OXO fashion.

Anyone who has used an OXO product knows that they make very thoughtful products, and this cake decorating kit is no exception. The kit consists of a silicon accordion bag, three stainless steel decorating tips (one round and two stars), and various screw on tops (one for the bag and one for the tip).

Assembling and using the decorating kit is easy. You simply unscrew the bag's top and fill it with icing, then unscrew the tip's top and insert the tip you want to use. Then squeeze the silicon accordion bag to apply the frosting. The overall size is a perfect fit for most adult hands, and it's very easy to control the speed of the flow. The bag will force out about 95% of it's contents, and it does not leak. Overall, it's much less fussy to use than a typical decorating bag and tips.

Cleaning the OXO is a cinch. All of the pieces come apart easily and are dishwasher safe. I washed it in the dishwasher and noticed no issues. Everything came out spotlessly. You can store the tips inside the bag when you're not using it.

All in all... a simple to use and wonderfully designed set.

Enlifery PC-2 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Capsules - Hard water resolution (2 Packs)
Offered by CTCStore
Price: $14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars They work, but they don't eliminate all of the mineral residue., February 16, 2015
I have very hard water here in Rockland County, NY and have just come to accept it as a part of life. Part of that acceptance is the fact that my humidifier will always have mineral deposits in the form of white powder on its exterior.

These humidifier tank cleaners promised to rid me of the white powder mineral dust. The packaging says they are non-toxic and emit no odor, and indeed I noticed no difference in the mist coming out of my humidifier. In fact, I also noticed only a modest difference in the amount of mineral dust coming out of my humidifier. There was definitely less of it, but it was not eliminated completely.

Using the tabs is easy, you just drop one into the water tank and replace it every 60 days. I have a Roolen ultrasonic humidifier and the spout for adding water is not that large, and these tabs are, so it just fit inside the tank's opening. It will be interesting when the time comes to remove it...

All in all... they do help, but they don't work miracles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great LEDs for exposed fixtures., February 16, 2015
LED bulbs are wonderful lighting choices for most situations. They are very energy efficient for the amount of light they put out, give off no heat, turn on and reach full brightness instantly, and are usually dimmable. This SleekLighting LED bulbs offer all of those benefits, but unlike most LED bulbs that are encased in frosted plastic globes, these bulbs are in a clear glass globe. They are really great to use in fixtures where the bulb is visible and its appearance is important.

I'm using the bulb in a "retro" pendant fixture that exposes the bulb and this LED bulb looks great. The way the LEDs are set-up as thin little strips almost looks identical to an old-fashioned tungsten bulb.

The light they give off is warm in color and very even. They don't hum and I haven't had any issues.

All in all... great LED bulbs.

Herbal Essences  Wild Naturals Illuminating Conditioner, 13.5 Fluid Ounce
Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Illuminating Conditioner, 13.5 Fluid Ounce
Price: $5.96

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite Herbal Essences Conditioner, February 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Herbal Essences brand of shampoo and conditioner is a brand that I like, and it will usually find its way into my shower when it's on sale, so I was expecting to like this conditioner as well. I do like the way the conditioner performs. It's thick and coats my hair well. It also rinses cleanly and leaves my hair feeling soft and moisturized. What I didn't like about it so much was the fragrance. It says it's seaberry essence, and I just think it smells a bit off. To me it almost smelly like stale gummy bears, a bit sweet but also sour. My spouse says it smells like body odor, but he's more sensitive to smell than I am.

P.S. My hair is about 6 inches long, thick, and wavy.

All in all... it's a great performing conditioner, just don't expect the usual floral fragrance burst you usually get from Herbal Essences.

Wood-Aluminum iPhone Desktop Charger, Truffol X ORICO Station 5 5-Port 36W USB Charger, 2X Quick Charge 2.4A & 3X Universal 1.0A (Walnut Wood)
Wood-Aluminum iPhone Desktop Charger, Truffol X ORICO Station 5 5-Port 36W USB Charger, 2X Quick Charge 2.4A & 3X Universal 1.0A (Walnut Wood)
Offered by Truffol
Price: $39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars It's very attractive, and works well, but it would be even better if it transferred data., February 5, 2015
Truffol's desktop charger is very well made, charges multiple devices quickly, and looks great.

The Truffol is a modestly sized charger. It's about the size of three iPhone 5s stacked on top of each other. It has a great feeling in the hand. The mixture of real wood and aluminum works well and everything is screwed together tightly. The materials are also dense and give the Truffol nice heft. On the bottom of the Truffol is a large rubber base.

The Truffol has 5 charging ports on the front. 3 of them are universal 1 amp ports, while the remaining 2 ports are Quick Charge 2.4 amp ports. On the back is the small power button and the plug for the AC adaptor. The adaptor also includes a small external power brick, unfortunately.

The Truffol charged both of my family's iPhone 5s quickly and without issue. I used a couple of different lightning cables with the Truffol and they all fit fine and worked as expected.

Since the Truffol is such a beautiful piece, and looks great left out on a desk all the time, I think it would be amazing if they integrated the ability to not just charge iPhones and other devices, but also transfer data. Then you would have a beautiful do-it-all device.

All in all... no more cheap and tacky chargers.

PLEMO Classic Blue Automatic Folding Travel Umbrella (46-Inch Diameter)
PLEMO Classic Blue Automatic Folding Travel Umbrella (46-Inch Diameter)
Offered by Avantek US
Price: $38.99

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a great umbrella., February 2, 2015
The PLEMO is very nicely made. It feels high quality and opens with a pleasing snap. The wooden handle is well made and the fabric is finished neatly.

The umbrella's pattern is very mature and discreet. It's done in a dark navy blue, and is a bit darker than the image on Amazon's website would have you believe. The handle is done in a dark brown wood with a woven strap attached to the bottom.

The PLEMO doesn't have the typical button to release the umbrella, but rather has a plastic pull disk on the top of the handle. You release the umbrella by pulling the plastic disk down toward the handle. It works well, even with one hand. It does not fold automatically.

I used the PLEMO during a pretty severe storm and it kept me dry, and didn't turn inside out despite the heavy winds.

All in all... you can't for much more from an umbrella.
