NZ Sock Co 'LifeSocks' from Designed2Enable

Review: NZ Sock Co ‘LifeSocks’ from designed2enable

I have been sent some NZ Sock Co ‘LifeSocks’ from designed2enable that promote healthy circulation. I know the circulation in my legs is bad, but I have never really tried anything to help and I hate the white NHS compression socks/stockings which also hurt after wearing them for any length of time. I am also not a sock person, in fact when I did that walking trick, I loved to be bare foot as much of the time as I could. Since the NZ Sock […]

Stress to a spoonie is like poison!

Stress to a spoonie is like poison!

I don’t cope with stress very well, in fact I am really bad at it and it literally makes me physically unwell, I have ME and Stress to a spoonie is like poison!   Okay first things first, I know that most of you will know what a ‘Spoonie’ is, it’s basically a label that many people who suffer chronic health give themselves and it is based on the Spoon Theory that Christine Miserandino used to explain her health situation to a friend, you can […]

Mr Sunnah 'Sandalwood & Frankincense' Beard Oil

Review: Mr Sunnah ‘Sandalwood & Frankincense’ Beard Oil

Mr Sunnah ‘Sandalwood & Frankincense’ Beard Oil has a nice thick consistency which you don’t often get in beard oils, I actually like a heavier beard oil as it keeps my beard looking tidier. I received four oils for test and review but I just had to use the Sandalwood & Frankincense beard oil first, I love both of those scents and so I hoped the combination would be a winner. The scent is in fact very nicely blended, the Sandalwood is the first scent […]

Wholly Kaw 'Bare Naked' Beard Oil

Review: Wholly Kaw ‘Bare Naked’ Beard Oil

It’s not often that something different comes along in the beard care world, but Wholly Kaw ‘Bare Naked’ Beard Oil is exactly that, it’s different. Most beard oils are made up from a mix of carrier oils and then into that essential oils are blended to create the scent. Wholly Kaw has used something called plant esters that are found naturally in plants and are structurally similar to cholesterol and I can honestly say that it works well in beard oil. Wholly Kaw ‘Bare Naked’ […]

Mr Sunnah Wooden Beard Combs

Review: Mr Sunnah Wooden Beard Combs

I was sent three wooden beard combs from Mr Sunnah who sells beard oil and combs, it’s okay you’re not imagining things, yes I have written a review before for these combs but I was contacted by Mr Sunnah and informed that they weren’t as described and so I have had to start again. The combs were originally advertised as Sandalwood combs and that isn’t correct and so the review has been deleted and I thought it should be mentioned. First up we have the […]

Purpose Beard Balm

Review: Purpose Beard Balm

Purpose Beard Balm is a fairly new beard care product and if you frequent Instagram, then you may have noticed the launch campaign where Purpose sent out hundreds of free samples to people who subscribed to their website. Now I guess this can either be a good idea or a bad idea, if the product is a winner then those guys will be beating down your door wanting more, however if it’s not great then guys who might have bought some, will now steer clear […]

Genesee Beard Co 'Bootlegger' Beard Oil

Review: Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil

Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil is as the name implies a Bay Rum scented beard oil, made from 100% natural ingredients and made in small batches. I have just finished using the Genesee Beard Co ‘Bootlegger’ Beard Oil, I had previously reviewed their ‘Mountaineer‘ Beard Oil and so I knew the base oil would be good, so this was just about the scent. I have to admit and this won’t be surprise if you have read my reviews before, I am not a fan […]

Genesee Beard Co 'Mountaineer' Beard Oil

Review: Genesee Beard Co ‘Mountaineer’ Beard Oil

Well the first thing I have to mention about Genesee Beard Co ‘Mountaineer’ Beard Oil is that it made my beard feel so much softer than normal! I started awarding a Gold Cup Award to show the very best products, I imagined it would be rarely used but I have tested some amazing products but still its only used if the oil is 100% perfect and that is what Genesee Beard Co ‘Mountaineer’ Beard Oil is and so it gets the Gold Cup!   American […]

Beard Lab ‘The Scientist’ Beard Oil ticks all the boxes […]

Inverted T Wave

Naturally occurring Inverted T waves on ECG

Yesterday I ended up in A&E (ER) with chest pains, now this isn’t as worrying as it sounds because I get Naturally occurring Inverted T waves on ECG. Of course once the cardiac nurse saw this, she had to follow protocol as they can’t take the risk that I am not actually suffering from a blocked artery or having a heart attack. So it was blood tests, aspirin and a nice dose of diamorphine, which also took the pain away in my legs. I haven’t […]
