Do You Buy "As Seen on TV" Beauty Products?

Do You Buy "As Seen on TV" Beauty Products?

You know when you're at Target and you're drawn in by one of those end-cap displays featuring the "As Seen on TV" logos? Could it be the InStyler that's captured your attention, or perhaps it's the PedEgg ($10) that floats your fancy?

The buy-it-now, buy-it-fast mantra of many of these items can come across as cheesy. (Bling String, anyone?) But does that stop you from trying out these heavily marketed items with the familiar red box with white lettering, or does your curiosity get the better of you?

I have the bump-it too and I really like it. They were only $10 though. I'm not going to shell out $20-30 on something that only might work as well as they claim

I had the Caruso Steam Curlers too. And Bare Escentuals make up, but I bought that in the stores

A dremmil? Does it plug in? That's my biggest complaint about the pedipaws is how fast I go through batteries!

Nope never have. They always seem so cheesy and appear to be a waste of $ to me.

I've thought about buying a few products but after I do some online research they never seem to work as advertised, so not yet.

Nope never. I was thinking of buying the Instyler but after reading your article, that's not going to happen.

Yogaforlife- have you tried a normal Dremmil? They make nail attachements. I have 3 larger dogs, and the Pedi Paws just cannot last that long for them. The Dremmil works wonders.

Years ago I had the Richard Caruso Molecular Steam Hair Setting System, it was a set of hot rollers that used steam, a big thing 15+ years ago. I used the heck out of those rollers! It broke my heart when they finally stopped working! And I have P90X, which rocks!

I answered yet, but only because I bought one item before. I bought the PediPaws at Petsmart and I have to say it's the only thing my one dog lets near his feet. It's so convenient compared to having to take him to the vet to be sedated just to have his nails trimmed (at $75 no less by the time you pay for all the sedation and recovery!). But other than that, I don't look at products that advertise "ASOT". I will say, many a bored weekend mornings I've watched informercials for products like "Malibu Pilates" but would never actually buy it.

Yes, but only after reading dozens of reviews on the net from users. Sometimes these products aren't so bad, but in 90% of cases it's rubbish and total waste of money and sometimes even a serious threat to your health, like PedEgg or SmoothAway - they can damage your skin really badly.
