Zerosmoke


A product that promises to help those kick the bad habit of smoking seems to be a instant buy. After all, smokers recognize the difficulty of trying to quit smoking, why not dabble in a product that promises to make it easier? Essentially according to the manufacturer, this product is a magnet that is to be worn a few hours a day, that it said to trigger neurotransmitter to curb the nictoine craving. Now according to some reviews, people say that it has worked for them. While there are many others that say it has not. The product is not scientifically based, nor has been supported or proven by any scientists. In addition the magnets are painful to wear and there are many complaints from consumers for deceptive marketing.

Doggy Steps


This product is intended to assist small dogs in reaching higher ground. According to the manufacter, this product is meant for those smaller dogs to reach sofas, beds or vehicles. The product does work. To be honest there really isn't much to it. It's also very easy to assemble. Overall, it is a great product for purchase. I suppose my question is, wouldn't it just be easier to pick up the dog? I mean, if its small enough for these stairs, it is assumed that its light enough to be picked up. At least this way you'd save yourself the cash.

Aqua Globes


The Aqua Globe is designed to evenly water plants. So if you have a tendency to over water, or forget to water them, this product is meant to solve all your problems. The best part is, they come in very cool artistic hand blown designs. So you have the luxury of choosing which best suits you. The product does actually do as promised, and in addition does work on most plants. The only major downfall is that since the product is hand blown glass, it is fragile and can shatter easily. It also is a little tricky to fill, and if you don' t use it right, the main portion of it can get clogged, and defeat the whole purpose of the product.

Kids Clothes

Now is the time to start shopping for those kids clothes for school.  School is here again and so are the great sales that are at naartjie.  timeto shop for those fall and winter apparel but check out the clearance items as well.

Ped Egg


This is a rather gross thing to discuss. At least for me, being the one who dislikes feet, but we must trudge forward and talk about it anyway. For those who are unfamiliar, the Ped Egg is not a kitchen utensil, but rather a cheese grater type gadget that is designed to remove dead skin for the bottom of feet and heels. According to reviews the product does work wonderfully. It smooths out dry feet, and it is very easy to use. Now the downside of this product is that it can be painful for those you may use it too rough, and it can be messy (Eww, think about it, dead scaly skin cell from feet are all over your house in clumps.) But overall, if you have a problem with dry rough skin on your feet, I would highly suggest this product. As long as you're careful, it shouldn't be a problem.

The Perfect Pancake


Everyone wants to be able to make the perfect pancake. And the saying goes, "The first pancake never comes out right." But what if you could have a product that every pancake came out remarkably. Well that is what this product is intended for. Based off of reviews, the product does make wonderful fuller, thicker, and hearty pancakes. Whether or not that is perfect is really up to the consumer. Now the point of this is that you don't need a spatula to flip the pancake. You simply turn the entire pan around. The product is very light weight and easy to do this task. But many reviews say that the batter has a tendency to splatter, and its rather time consuming being that only one pancake can be made at a time. Overall, the product does as promised, with some slight hiccups along the way. If you are able to overcome those, then you should definitely think about investing in this

Your Baby Can Read


Your Baby Can Read is a relatively familiar infomercial that promises to keep your child ahead of the game. Essentially giving your three year old the capability to read at a second grade level. What a great product! What more could a parent want than to have a genius child, and one that is far ahead of his/her peers? So does it work?
To put it simply, this product does work...with the help and motivation of parents. Children need to be engaged by adults and the mind stimulated. Based on reading reviews the product works for most kids, but some may find it boring and thus not be fully engaged and not learn anything. The product is poorly made, and extremely expensive. The bottom line is that parents need to be involved, without that...there is no learning. So if you think about it, couldn't a parent do that with anything? Buy three dollar flashcards and Wal-Mart, and believe it or not, engage yourself with your kid, they may learn something.

White Lab Coats

When you have to wear those lab coats you want to makes sure that you have ones that are going to last and that are going to stay white.  Medelita is a great lab coat to get if you want to have that lab coat that is going to always look great even after multiple washings.

Smooth Away


This product is meant to "smooth" away unwanted hair, such as on the legs, face, even arms. After reading reviews, and according to Amazon, this product does not live up to expectations. Out of a little over 160 reviews, 103 gave the product one out of five stars. The product is said to leave a rash and has the same consistency as sandpaper, and essentially works about the same. In closing, use a razor. It is probably cheaper, and more convenient.

Tiddy Bear


This product is meant to keep the seat belt comfortable for its users, while adding a cool looking stuffed animal. Overall, there really isn't much to this product. Like the Snuggie, it does what is says it does. Although, the idea is rather...unique, its not believed that this product caught on much with public. The Pro's, it does added a pad to the seat belt, with a unique design. The eyes of the stuffed animal, could possible be considered a choking hazard, and for obvious reasons..not very stylish. But from a personal perspective, I think it would be ideal for children, and a great means of getting them into the habit of wearing a seat belt.

Bender Ball


As far as exercise products go, this one is very neutral. Some users say that they have had tremendous success using this product, with the ab sculpting and what not. As usual, the reviews share that it works far better than just ordinary workout routines or doing regular ab crunches on the floor. The one con that seemed to be consistent, is the sales tactic. According to reviews, when the product is purchased, you automatically get signed up for the DVDs and are charged on a continued monthly basis. If you read the fine print, it leads to unwanted charges. Also, the ball doesn't stay inflated, so you'll either have to buy back ups or a pump. But if you get down to the nitty gritty of it, the product appears to satisfy 50% of its customers with its promise of ab workouts.

Cash For Gold


I, for one, would definitely give credible trustworthiness to a company that had the balls to have MC Hammer star in their commercials (did you detect the sarcasm? It's hard to convey in writing). These commercials litter the wondrous world of advertisements. All the people seem happy and appreciative of these Cash 4 Gold services. So does it work?
In a nutshell, this is a scam. Don't bother calling in, or think about sending your wonderful pieces of gold jewelry to this company. According to the consumer search website, this Cash 4 Gold received a D- by the Better Business Bureau. Now you do get money for you items that you mail in. (Assuming that your packages were not stolen in the process). But you get low per ounce rates and definitely do not get the money it is worth. So, a word of advice. Find another get rich quick scheme. You may have far better luck.

Blossoming Baby Shower Theme

For a baby shower theme I wanted something special and unique.I picked this cherry blossom theme,because I thought it was cute and unique.It makes me think that my family is just starting and we will blossom to be a great supportive and beautiful family.

The Bedazzler


What kid wouldn't want to glam up their clothes and add a little "bling bling" (do people still use this word?) to their wardrobe. So the Bedazzler provides that opportunity for kids to place sequins and glitz to not only their clothes, but accessories such as hats, backpacks, purses, etc.
After reading some reviews on the product, it seems people (other than kids) also like to use the product for scrap-booking and added a little pizazz to jeans and such. It appears this product does as is promised, and is very simple to use. So if you are into the arts and crafts and would like a device to make adding sequins and little jewels easier for you, then the Bedazzler is something that you should consider investing in.

The Bump It


When I originally saw this infomercial, I thought it was the dumbest thing ever and no one would waste money on their hair in an attempt to make it look like a giant poof on their head. And then came Snookie.
So reevaluation was needed. The product does provide the added "bump" to a hairstyle. No matter what kind of hair you have, the product surprisingly stays in and gives that 80's look. In addition, it is very easy to use, and has easy to follow directions. So based on the price and all of the objectives listed...if you want an 80's hair do, then the Bump-It is a must buy.

Topsy Turvy Tomatoe Planter


I'm not known for having a green thumb. In actuality I would probably kill any plant that came near me unintentionally. So is the Topsy Turvy a product right for someone like me? Well, my parents bought this thing, against their better judgment, in the hopes that they may be one with the earth and channel their inner farmer to see, if in fact, they could produce some lush ripe tomatoes.
Now, to my, and their surprise, the product does in fact work very well. It provides great convenience and ease to pick and water these tomatoes. Though, I don't believe it makes any difference from any other planter. I mean if you think about it, you could use anything to grow tomatoes, and just turn that thing upside down. But the original idea is there, and therefore kudos is in order for the creative thinkers that came up with the product. So in short, yes, the product works. But it would be advised not to spend that $19.99 and just find some house hold object to plant your tomatoes in and hang it upside down. It does look pretty cool too.

Droid Series


As you may or may not known Verizon Wireless is giving AT&T a run for their money with their new smart phone line up. Though, the Iphone is still a very descent phone and a very tough competitor, the new Driod series released, has some pretty cool and neat features that the Iphone lacks.
When the first Droid came out, it was rather exciting. The screen is very large, and it also provided the convenience of the slide out keyboard, which I thought was great. Being the accident prone person that I was, I figured if I somehow managed to damage the touch screen, I would still be able to do most things with the phone by utilizing the physical keyboard. In addition, the Android market (which is where apps are downloaded) has thousands of selections to chose from. Unlike Apple's market, the Droid market is essentially a "fair-game" location where developers can upload their applications created. With Apple, they regulate what apps are allowed. The nice thing with this fair game mentality, is that if there is a problem with the app, the developer provides their contact information when it is downloaded, so you may be able to contact them directly with issues. Now with any touch screen phone, the battery life isn't the greatest, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of web-surfing. But overall the Droid series is a very good phone, and it is believed that AT&T should perhaps consider coming up with some other phones to add to their line up.

Oxyclean


Poor Billy Mays. May he rest in peace.

But onto the product review of Oxyclean. Oxyclean does do some of what is promised on those infomercials. When used in laundry the whites do get whiter, and it does take out grass, juice, and makeup stains. The bad side to this, is that it does have a tendency to ruin wool or silk. And if the product is not used properly, it can damage certain surfaces. Overall, the product is a decent pick, and does live up to some of its promises. But according to reviews, isn't that great when trying to clean up grease or tomato based stains.

They did great work on my nails. Very relaxing!

The Ab Lounge


The Ab Lounge, does it work? I've tried the product myself, and I must say I did feel some muscle work. After reading some reviews on Amazon, which the product was given four out of five starts from over 100 reviews, it might be concluded that this product may be something to invest in. Now, with many promotional advertisements, what they promise isn't always 100% accurate. This product does work the muscles in the abdominal to an extent. Meaning, you're gonna have to work pretty hard to get super model results. But that wonderful burning sensation in your gut is there after many reps. (No, not that kind of burning sensation, the "I just had a great workout" kind. Geez).
If you have any type of back problems, then don't even waste your money. This machine is not for you. In fact, I may go as far to say this will make it far worse. But as many exercise claims, there must be other factors that will contribute to the success. Such as eating right, and willingness to not sit in front of the television with a bag of potato trips for consecutive hours.

The Snuggie


I'll be the first to admit that whoever came up with this is either a genius because we are stupid enough to buy such a product, or the inventor is someone with far too much time on their hands. Either way, the advertisements were enough for a family member to give me one as a Christmas gift. Now, the Snuggie does not provide anything extra that a blanket or even a sweatshirt could not suffice to. Though, I'll admit, it does keep you warmer than not wearing anything at all. The bright side of purchasing the Snuggie is that it comes with a book reading light that does this weird self extend thing. Not sure how to explain that, but simply, I think I was more excited playing with this, than looking like a cult member wearing blue.

Proactive


A highly celebrity endorsed product, which makes you believe that it truly works. After all, Jessica Simpson wouldn't lie to me if it didn't work, right? If not her, then definitely not Vanessa Williams, Avril Lavigne, or P. Diddy (not sure if he's going by that name nowadays), just to name a few. Well after consulting with a few websites the verdict is in.
If you're acne is due to oily or dirty skin, Proactive should work for you (which I believe is what any acne product takes care of). According to customer testimonial, the product caused severe drying and had a "stinging" sensation. But there were a few customers that stated it cleared up their acne better than any previous product. Wow, just like how the advertisements claim. Crazy!
Although there were a few selected satisfied customers, more were left with only hopes diminished and extreme disappointment. Both sites, Product Review and Amazon, show Proactive as having three out of five stars. Essentially, average. If it were issued a letter grade, it'd be a C.
So to answer the first question, yes, Jessica Simpson, P.Diddy (still unsure if this is what he goes by), Avril Lavigne, and Vanessa Williams would like to me to make a quick buck. Unless they were the 30% with oily or dirty skin. Which sounds really gross and I doubt they would fess up to that.

ShamWow


You may have seen the infamous infomercial with the ShamWow guy going crazy over this product. Claiming that it picks up all spills. "It works like a vacuum to suck up the liquids." So the test question is, does it actually do this? According to popular mechanics, whom placed this product under testing, shares that it actually does soak up liquids spilled on carpets much like how the advertisements promise. Though, the Shamwow does work better on liquids that are not thick, example, tomato sauce, it is very absorbent. Another claim the infomercial makes is that you no longer need to buy paper towels due to the fact that the Shamwow is machine washable. Here's where the product begins to have a downfall. According to Shamwow customer reviews, after simply one wash, the product falls apart, shrinks easily, and begins to fuzz. In addition, it does not wring out as easily as promised. Overall due to both sources, it is simply stated that keeping paper towels on hand would probably be a better choice. I doubt that any pet owner who needs to clean up after thier dog would want to reuse the same product again anyway.
