"As Seen on TV" products?

Recommended Posts

Ok.. Fess up!! Have you ever bought them... Either on the phone or in the store? I'm standing in the pharmacy in front of an "As Seen on TV" display and its amazing that someone would buy Mighty Putty or the Strap Perfect! Btw is says that the Strap Perfect adds a full cup size instantly?? Wearing a smaller bra would do the same thing and for less than the $10 they want you can get some silicone enhancers over at Walmart!! PM me if you want to know which isle they are in! Lol

 

I know Aprill has a closet full of Sham-wow's!! biggrin.gif

 

So what have you bought??

I have bought the Shamwow, the slapchop, the twisty bendy thingies for the kids (bendaroo's), uh the magic bullet (get your minds out of the darn gutter), ultra smooth, most of the cd compilations before I decided to be a pirate (yo ho ho and a bottle of crap), that crap that claimed you could roll out, cut, plant water voila! flowers...not! but i bought it.

I think the only thing we bought from the "TV" store in the mall is some of those plastic disks you can use to move furniture around with....

Well the only thing I recall buying from TV was the spray on hair removal, which was nothing but some Nair in a spray bottle. It was a long time ago so I don't know the name.

omg that magic bullet ad is SO persuasive.

 

I remember one time, this ad for a thing that straightened your hair, this kind of revolving brush. I have perfectly straight hair but I REALLY wanted it, LOL.

 

And that guthy renker ad? dayum, I really want that skincare stuff!

I'm guessing that by Guthy remker you mean Proactiv lol. I bought that several time but it's only temporary (at least on me) cause I stopped using it a bit then reused it but it didn't work anymore idk I became immune to it lol. It worked wonders at first tho =D.

I laughed my ass off when I read this. I haven't ordered anything except for proactive but that's only bc I used my moms and it worked fine.

 

My mom is notorious for buying from tv ads, especially those beauty ones, Alexis Vogel, Sheer Cover, and also anything that's related to losing weight. She works third shift and on her days off, she's used to staying up late at night and will stay up watching those infomercials. Many times, she'll wake up my dad to order something at three in the morning lol.

 

The only reason I didn't bother with the Shamwow is bc my husband works in a body shop and he says that when he has to detail a car, its the same stuff they used to dry the car with. Someone just got smart and decided to make it a household item lol.

Hmm, i think we never bought anything off these, although i love watching them on tv, i always have a good laugh. Don't invite us at a tupperware party though, there was a time we'd have a collection of them, round, square, molds, cookbooks... Our storing abilities being limited we stopped.

we've gotten "as seen on tv" things from Target a couple of times. we have the sham wow and he makes it a point to say "wow" every time he uses it and we've gotten the smooth away because since i'm pregnant i'm really bad about shaving my legs and i feel gross. it doesn't work. it takes off fine hair on the arms like it shows in the commercials but that's it.

 

edit: i want the toothpaste dispenser thing!! i squeeze the middle of the tube and screw the whole thing up and end up wasting a lot

I have a Magic Bullet that I haven't used yet. The only thing that I have purchased from a TV Commercial was BareMinerals smile.gif.

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
