It works by making your skin regenerate new cells – thus making the skin look younger – something a lot of us could do with.

House of Fraser also sell Plantscription online with delivery available to Ireland

Then suddenly they don`t. Discover nature`s power plant. Developed over 5 years in partnership with plant scientists at the University of Strasbourg.

Book Ryanair Flights – With No Fees

On www.Bookryanair.com you will be charged an administration  fee when you pay with a normal credit card or debit card. This Ryanair admin or booking fee is €12 Euro per person for each return flight – and can soon mount up for large families or regular flyers.
There is only one way to avoid this Ryanair booking fee – and that is to use a Prepaid Mastercard.
Ryanair have to offer at least one fee-free method to avoid having to show the fees as part of the advertised ticket prices.
They probably hope that not many people will bother applying for a Mastercard Prepay – because it will mean more profits for them. Prove them wrong and stop paying this rip off charge.
Irish and UK  residents can get a Prepaid Mastercard at Moneybookers for €10 (£8.75) annual fee. You will save that and more – as soon as you book one Ryanair ticket with it.
The card is issued by Newcastle Building Society . It can be topped up from a laser card for free and by bank transfer for free. There are no fees when you spend with the card.

Hair Loss Treatments

Hair thinning and hair loss is a common problem for men . There are dozens of different lotions, shampoos and tablets that can be used to reduce hair loss – some even claim to reverse hairloss and start hair growing again.
To save the hassle of buying in your local pharmacy – you can buy all the major hairloss treatments online with delivery to Ireland.
Regaine is one product that has been  clinically proven to treat hereditary hair loss. It’s easy to use and has been proven to help prevent further hair loss for 4 out of 5 men. It works by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle, helping to strengthen existing hair and stimulate secondary hair growth.

Alpecin is a shampoo that contains caffeine which stimulates the hair roots and can slow down hair loss.

NuHair comes in tablet form – it is natural herbal blend tablet for hair loss & thinning hair. It  helps to block the production of DHT, the “bad” form of the hormone testosterone, and provides intensive nourishment to revitalise the scalp and enhance hair growth.

Online Shops that accept Laser Cards

The Laser card is on the way out – BOI and AIB are eventually replacing it with Visa Debit cards – which can be used to shop online everywhere (99%).
Laser cards are  accepted in very few online shopping sites – most of the major UK ones don’t accept Laser cards. We have a list below of some sites that do take laser cards.

One  option for online shopping for people who only have a Laser card – is to apply for a Prepaid Mastercard from Moneybookers. It only costs €10 a year and you can  load it up online with no fees using your laser card. You can then use it to shop online anywhere  that Mastercard is accepted.  (You can also use it on Ryanair to avoid paying the €12 booking fee per person)
