2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nicer than it is, June 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is cheap, thin silicone-like material. If you drop it, it's not going to absorb the shock.

The case covers the on/off button on the right and the volume buttons on the left. It makes turning it on and off difficult. I find I need to pull the cover away to depress the button. It would be better if there were cutouts where the buttons are.

It comes with a protective cover for the screen. I couldn't get it to go on without a lot of bubbles. It doesn't come with instructions, but I wiped the screen with a damp cloth made for electronics then used the dry cloth it comes with to wipe it down dry. I used a credit card to smooth out the cover, but after several attempts, I finally took it off. It isn't worth it if I see bubbles whenever I look at the screen.

The stylus is a piece of junk. It has a very soft, fat rubber tip. Those tips will get so soft after a short time that the screen won't respond to them. For a smartphone, the tip should be smaller. The fatter tips are more for tablets.

Over all, not worth the $10 bucks I spent on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Samsung Galaxy Smartphones, June 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a simple smartphone stand. It's lightweight and easy to set up. It's perfect for a Samsung smartphone because there is no lip at the bottom to cover up the return button. You can set the angle of the stand at four different levels.

It's easy to charge your phone while on the stand - just turn it to landscape position.

I purchased this in black but it can be hard to see, so I'm going to purchase another one in green.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun colors for the 4th of July holiday, June 14, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These terry cloth dish towels are square and would make good lap napkins. Personally, I prefer to dry dishes with non-terry towels. These towels will be good to bring out around the 4th of July to be used in the guest bathroom as hand towels. They're not the highest quality towels, but for occasional use, they're find. My red towel had what appears to be a purple dye sploch on it, which did not come out in the wash.

Who ever heard of DIY or home decor ideas without pictures? I've don't think I've ever given a book one star before, but there's always a first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars The storyline is full of holes, May 18, 2015
This review is from: Don't Fail Me Now (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really wanted to give this a higher rating because the story is interesting and well written; however, it's just far too implausible. After meeting the step-brother of her half-sister, a teenager, Michelle, decides to drive her two younger siblings from Maryland to California to visit a dying father they haven't seen since they were very young. She asks the step-brother, Tim, and half-sister, Leah, to join them and they just leave school and hop in the car without having any money or clothing or telling their parents.

The probability of these five children driving across the country without being stopped by the police, even when an Amber Alert is put out on them, is slim, but it happens. If you can get past the fantasy aspect of the book, it's not a bad read. I just couldn't help thinking that in real life there would have been a bit more planning involved ahead of time. Like packing a suitcase and making sure they had enough money to see them through.

The ending is a bit of a let-down. Although in real life what we expect and what we get are often two different things, We tend to expect something more to happen in a book.

Three stars for solid writing, but the premise is a miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars High quality, but wrinkle in dryer., May 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These sheets are very thick and of a high quality cotton. The only thing about them that I do no like is that they wrinkle really badly. I ironed the pillow cases, but most of the wrinkles smooth out on the sheets when they're placed on the bed. The thick edging on the top sheet and pillow cases tend to fold over in the dryer, so it's necessary to iron them out otherwise they'll never lay flat. If you continue to wash without ironing the folds flat, they eventually get a permanent crease that won't wash or iron out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stiff, but soft brush for all make-up., May 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice stiff brush that you can use for base make-up as well as powder blush.

I brushed around my eyes before applying make-up to exfoliate. Although it doesn't seem like it's doing much, the bristles are stiff enough to exfoliate the top layer of the delicate eye skin.

When applying the base make-up I rotated the brush in a circular motion, which leaves the skin looking very smooth. After brushing off the make-up onto a paper towel, I swirled the brush into powder blusher and brushed from the apples of my cheeks upward toward the hair line. It gives just a hint of color, which is how I like to wear my make-up.

It really is a brush that can be used for more than one type of make-up. It would be a good companion for a travel case, since you would only need the one brush.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neat idea, but design needs improvement., April 29, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These do make flossing much easier than a long strand of floss. However, the piece of floss is only large enough for one tooth. I had to rinse it off between each tooth.

I kept thinking each tip must hold a longer length of floss inside to pull out as you go. But nope. Just the one short piece per pair of tips.

The refills come in 60 tip packs. Since you us 2 tips for each floss, that's 30 days of flossing. The price for the refills is over $10. That's a very expensive way to floss.

There are no directions. I had trouble opening the box. It slides out. Also, it took some time to figure out how to remove the spent tips. Press down on the soft top and pull the other gumchuck until it comes out

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but heavy., April 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an extremely sturdy foot stool. It comes knocked down. Set-up is super simple. The base unfolds, pop in the bottom, and put the top on.

He stool does not glide on carpet. And, it's kind of heavy even without anything stored inside. I have to pick it up from the sides to move it. Cut out handles on the side would make moving it easier. Difficulty in moving is what gives this 4 instead of 5 stars.

The height is a good one for resting your tired legs; however, because the padding on the lid does not wrap around the stiff sides it begins to dig in after a while. I find it more comfortable to place a pillow on top to rest my legs on. Plus it is sturdy enough to sit on in a pinch.

The fabric it's covered in is neutral enough to go with most decors.

Great for kid's rooms or college dorms. Or, anywhere you might need a foot stool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wins award for worst grammar in child's book., April 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is very hard to read due to extremely poor grammar. It's actually exhausting to read because of the awful grammar. I can't imagine giving this book to a child who is still learning proper English. The premise seems silly and fun, but it gets boring fast because it just repeats everything. Plus it talks about farting and pooping on every page.

Droll.
