Always popular maybe because they enables everything to be put behind us? A decent backpack/rucksack allows the weight to be carefully distributed across the shoulders and back enabling a larger amount to be carried in comfort. Here I look at offerings from Belkin and Wenger

Not a Sonic Screwdriver but a Sonic Toothbrush, this will not as far as I know open locks and solve the secrets of the universe but it will according to Philips get your teeth two shades whiter in two weeks.
An eco friendly hairdryer that is great value, will save you money on electricity, dry your hair fast and give you a smoother than normal finish - unbelieveable but true!
I have used an electric razor of one sort or another for more years than I like to remember. However this Philips system was something totally new to me as shall we say a mature user.

When conventional medicines fail to help you may often look to other things like herbs to solve the problems. Here I explore a few of the alternatives.
I've tried several heart-rate monitoring watches with varying (but low!) levels of success in the past. This time it's the turn of Suunto with their T1 watch.
The first a food item to fight the big two of Bovril and Marmite and the second a book to provide tasty recipes for Diabetics. Yes the link is tenuous but as I am a Diabetic and I like Toastmate its made.
Through the many years that have past since the first whisps of stubble fought their way on my spotty young chin I've tried all the various shaving solutions in a vain attempt to create a baby smooth finish.
I was more than a little skeptical when a toothbrush priced at over 130 arrived here for review. At first I thought there must be some mistake in the pricing - but no. This is the most advanced toothbrush in the Oral-B range.
Here we review 3 brands of epilator units designed to produce smooth hair-free legs.
Are you looking for the best hair straighteners to go to that party, or just look great for work. We put 4 different hair straighteners to the test.
With this little foursome she can have a pampering experience any night of the week - and you'll still have change from 100. Great gadgety beauty gifts for the girls at Christmas.
It's National Indoor Allergy Week 19th - 23rd November, so we're reviewing the Bionaire Air Purifier BAP412. Air purifiers are known to help those with allergic reactions and asthma.
