Lisa: Tool(s) of the Week

I don't find infomercials to be a particularly pleasant or effective marketing technique, but I must admit that there are some good as-seen-on-TV products out there. Especially...




It's hard for me to admit, but Jessica Simpson and Diddy sold me on Proactiv. That ridiculousness aside, now that I've tried it, I don't think I'll ever go back to another skincare regimen. My skin is softer and clearer and more glowy than it ever has been, and new boxes magically appear on my doorstep when I need a refill. The only downside is that my purple towels now have giant pink bleached spots from the benzoyl peroxide--but it was time for new towels anyway, and I was already planning to replace them with white. Problem solved!

It's only been a few weeks since Marci introduced me to Turbo Jam, but so far I am loving it. The routines are relatively easy to pick up, go by quickly, and leave me completely sweaty (which I figure has to be good). I can't wait for my "ripped, rock-hard abs."

You. Are. Such. A. Tool.
You let them sell you on a infomercial product. Regardless of if it works or not it is just wrong to buy something that the only place you can buy it is off daytime tv. Plus, there are lots of products with bonzoyl peroxide.

Wow Jeff. That was harsh. Plus, I think that if a product works, it is a good product and worthy of endorsement, regardless of where it was originally advertised.

You can buy them on the internet, too, silly! And infomercials are on late at night, and we all know that it is OK to watch mindless TV in the middle of the night. Not that I do!

Proactiv also has a kiosk in Fashion Place Mall.

Also Lisa was not sold to turbo jam by a comercial. She was sold on it by me. Plus turbo jam is a god send. Im buying the other videos on the website to add to my collection.

I think this comment thread is a good example of Jeff getting served. And also a good example of what happens when you mess with one of the girls. Except with less blood.

nobody messes with one of my bffs!

That is what I am saying. Carson Daly is a tool. Ryan Seacrest is a tool. The hockey-playing boyfriend from 13 going on 30 is a tool. Lisa is not a tool. LISA IS OUR BFF!
