Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy

1From all the cosmetic products that the industry has to offer, heel treatment products seem to be the most prone to disappoint. That’s probably not because foot creams and heel treatments in general are bad or at least worse than other care products, but because the area itself is a very delicate one. Being very exposed to dryness and cracks, highly used during daily life, prone to get hardened up and thus less open to any external attempts to moisturize it, the skin on our feet and heels quickly turns into a problem area. This is why we need our foot care products to be really good, and we’re more likely to be disappointed in them, but also to be really excited when we find one that finally works and restores our skin. The Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy promises to be one of those wonder products that will not only fail to disappoint, but will work so well that we’ll never need to switch it for a different one ever again. Let’s see if those claims have any truth to them.


This As Seen on TV product comes in the shape of a care stick with a concentrated formula that needs to be applied on really dry areas, mainly the heels and soles. Its primary ingredients are natural neem and karanja oils, doubled with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal substances. Therefore, the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy not only nourishes and restores, but also protects the feet from bacterial infections and funguses that often target the feet and toe areas. The intensive care stick can also be applied to other dry problem areas, like the elbows, hands (if they’re extremely dry), rough knees and so on. It even works its magic on dried up cuticles, so it may be an unexpected manicure helper. The reviews all seem positive and confirm these claims, while the product’s price is also more than reasonable. You can buy it from Amazon.


Reasons to Buy the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy

There have been reviewing customers that reported having used this product for years and being completely satisfied with it. The results appear as fast as after only two days or nights of use, even in the worst dryness cases. Obviously, as any other skin care product, the most effective intensive use is over-night. Another reported plus of the Heeltastic Intensive Heel Therapy is the fact that it’s super convenient to apply because of its concentrated stick shape. There’s also hardly a need to get the product on your hands, so you can avoid spreading it on your palms if you plan to use them for other products as part of your care routine and don’t want to mix stuff together. Another reported plus is that the product was satisfying even to people with serious medical conditions with their feet (up to the point where the dryness and cracks were so severe that there was bleeding and hurting upon walking), as well as to people who have had a bad experience with similarly advertised products.

Customer Issues and Concerns

Some customers with a more sensitive sense of smell complained that the product’s scent, while definitely pleasant, is a tad too strong. A few have called the scent too medicinal-like or simply annoying. Another few have complained about the weird color. But there were no reports about the product not delivering the promised effect, so we see no serious drawbacks here.


The Verdict

If you’re bored with the routine required to keep your soles and heels barely in a presentable shape, then this product is definitely right for you. As long as you’re not over-sensitive about strong herbal scents, or you’re willing to tolerate them for the greater good of your skin, you should by all means go ahead and try this out. We’ve rarely seen an As Seen on TV product with so intensely positive reviews, and its price is completely comparable to similar products in stores if not even a bit lower. All in all, we can think of no reason not to try this product if you’re having issues with dry skin or worse, with dryness-fueled bacterial or fungi infections – on your heels or elsewhere on the body.

MSA 30X Sound Amplifier – Discreet Sound Amplifier

1This sounds like a really nice product to help people with hearing problems overcome their fading sense of hearing. Not precisely a high-precision gadget targeting people who are really deaf, but more of a welcome help for people experiencing mild to moderate issues with hearing (mostly old people, since such issues come with age usually, but not limited to them). It is advertised as a cheaper alternative or back-up for traditional hearing aids. Considering that hearing problems are almost unavoidable as your age advances or if you have the misfortune to suffer any accident that affects your ear, the release of this product should be pretty good news. Let’s see if it rises up to the expectations.


This small and skin-colored (assuming you’re Caucasian or relatively fair-skinned) gadget promises to be lightweight and comfortable while providing sound amplification by 30 times your default hearing level. Other bonus points advertised by the company producing it are its discreet appearance (it’s considerably smaller than similar products, skin-colored and with invisible clear tubing) and the fact it is rechargeable (saving you the money you would normally spend on batteries). It’s designed to fit both your left ear or your right ear, its volume control is adjustable and it’s FDA listed and approved.


When you order the product, the box contains the MSA 30X Sound Amplifier, along with six silicone ear buds, a charging cradle, a cleaning brush and an adaptor. All in all, everything seems to be alright as far as product function and integrity are concerned. You can find this product on the manufacturer’s website and on Amazon as well.

Reasons to Buy the MSA 30X Sound Amplifier

Some buyers are inclined to point out that the device isn’t a hearing aid, but plainly a sound amplifier, which means that it will also amplify the background noise, and that you shouldn’t expect it to compare to traditional and (way) more expensive hearing aids. But while taking the time to point this out, all customers seem to agree that for its low price, the product does all that it promises to do and that it’s definitely worth it, again, for its price.

Another advantage of the gadget is that it has a great battery life and lasts almost all day, while the expensive hearing aids only last 1-2 hours.

Customer Issues and Concerns

The biggest issue clients complained about was the high background noise that the device also reproduces. But it seems to be fine if you use it on low volume (which means not amplifying all the way up to 30 times more). Still, there were a few customers who found the noise unbearable even on low volume settings. And there are some who argue that a device that doesn’t filer noise and adapt the sounds to an according level can actually damage your hearing even more over time. Perhaps consult your doctor if you feel any ear pain. But then again, quite some people didn’t even complain of mild discomfort, so don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Another potential issue is the fact that when you buy the product from the manufacturer’s site, you’re forced to buy 2 products at once, which can make some people feel ripped off or scammed. There were no problems, however, when purchasing it from Amazon, so maybe stick with them if you plan to give it a try.

The last thing to mention isn’t really an issue but a heads-up: if you buy it, make sure you fully seat the device in the charging base for it to actually charge. Some customers didn’t catch on to this from the start and had to figure it out.


The Verdict

Because the device also amplifies background noise, it may only be suitable to people with minor hearing problems, who don’t need to turn up the volume to a too high level. The noise doesn’t filtered well when you turn up the volume and it may become a problem, but for the clients with mild hearing issues it seems to work better than the expensive gadgets, if only because the longer battery life. Everyone agrees that it’s definitely worth the money it demands and more; because usually products like this are much higher priced. For minor hearing issues you should be more than satisfied with the product overall.


Micro Touch Max Personal Trimmer

Micro Touch Max Personal TrimmerGentlemen, this one is for you! Grooming activities may be a drag sometimes, as they imply the spending of a lot of time and the use of different devices for each body part you’d like to trim. You perhaps have an entire kit of grooming and trimming devices, from the common shaving kit, to that machine that deals with the hair in your nose (and perhaps ears too), not to mention that getting rid of your hair chest sounds very painful, no matter how willing you’d be to give it a try. So how about having an all – in – one trimmer that acts like a blade, but with a soft, noninvasive touch, a device that will solve all your trimming problems, no matter it’s your beard, eyebrows, nose, ears, back neck, arms and chest? How would it be to have this gadget always ready for you, no matter where you travel? Today we will take a closer look to the Micro Touch Max Personal Trimmer and see if it is so spectacular as it is advertised.


neckThis is an As Seen on TV product available on the manufacturer’s website, Amazon and other online stores. The grooming device is built with German stainless steel and provided with a no-slip grip, LED light to ease your moves as it allows you to see what you’re doing, two comb attachments, AAA battery and a lot of applications and benefits, as follows: easy to pack and take wherever you may go, strong enough to deal even with the hardest parts to trim, it gets as close as a regular blade, but offers a soft, safe touch and comes with a 50% longer blade than previous models.

Reasons to Buy the Micro Touch Max Personal Trimmer

The Micro Touch Max Personal Trimmer features all – in – one benefits of several grooming gadgets. It is easy to use and to carry around, significantly lowering the storage space needed to pack it on your travels. It is powerful enough to trim the strong hairs and its soft touch may be a great benefit for those men with sensitive skin for whom traditional shaving is a curse. The product comes with better and improved features compared to previous models and the marketing suggests it is an upgraded model, with better features. If you are the type of man who wants or needs to look sharp and trimmed on all occasions, especially when traveling for business purposes, this device may be exactly what you needed. eyebrows

Customer Issues and Concerns

Now we are going to swim a bit in some murky waters, as seeing how the product is reviewed by customers who bought and used it, the product has a lot of chances to turn into the lest desired grooming gadget. First and foremost, users complained about the trimmer’s poor construction quality, with blades getting dull after a few attempts.

Another frequent issue highlighted by the customers is that the product doesn’t work at all, brand new as it is. Some had to change the battery to make it run, others had no success whatsoever in getting it functional. Complaints and refund requests sent to the company seem to have had no echo.

Micro Touch Max Personal TrimmerAmong other issues regarding this product is that it doesn’t quite do the job as advertised. We have two cases on our hands here: while some managed to use it successfully only to remove nose hair, others complained about the device being too thick and not getting into the nostril enough to have some positive effects, let alone that the sensitive skin around the nostrils suffered some irritations after the trimming was done.

Although the trimmer does a fine job when it does work, many complained of it breaking down in their hands, as the materials seem to be of poor quality, while the whole assembly is fragile and vulnerable.

The Verdict

If you don’t have any device to keep you groomed as you want to, the Micro Touch Max Personal Trimmer might do the trick, provided it works as advertised and comes in full health and body shape. However, before jumping at the opportunity, take a deeper look into the matters and check if you will eventually get the product you’re paying for. In this industry there are certainly other professional products dedicated to men that do their jobs as advertised, even if they cost more. Unfortunately, despite the really good potential this product has, we cannot recommend it to you.

Perfect Bacon Bowl Review

perfect bacon bowlWhile many people bash bacon around because it is fatty and not so healthy in large quantities and constant intakes, we have to admit that bacon is still one of our favorite delights when it comes to a classic breakfast, a pizza slice, some afternoon munchies or quick bites to take along to our work place. Kids and adults alike love bacon and if there was such a thing that could turn bacon into an edible plate or bowl (just as they sometimes do with flat bread for salads – allowing you to eat the salad and the crisp flat bread bowl in the same time), everybody would feel like touching Heaven. Fortunately, there is such product that can be used in the microwave, oven and toaster oven in order to turn bacon into a crunchy, grease – free bowl to season with everything you like, from salads to eggs and pasta. In truth, you can use it even for bread bowls and today we will take a look at the Perfect Bacon Bowl and see if this is as great as advertised.


This is an As Seen on TV product available on Amazon and some local stores that provide kitchenware. It is a bowl of plastic, provided with a collector channel that gathers all the bacon grease for you to remove and have crunchy, sizzling bacon without the fatty side effects. The procedure is quite simple: you wrap around the bacon slices around the bowl and put it in the oven or microwave. In no time, you will have a hot and crispy bacon bowl to fill in with your favorite sides. The product comes in a pair and is marketed as being microwave free and dishwasher safe.

perfect bacon bowlReasons to Buy the Perfect Bacon Bowl

If you can wrap around your mind around the idea that what this product represents is just a plastic bowl to wrap bacon around and you still find some charm to it, then the Perfect Bacon Bowl is a fun kitchen accessory. Your cooking and your life won’t depend on it, but it can make some interesting appetizers to a party or during game night, not to mention that kids will probably love it the best. The product comes in handy also to those who never considered making bacon (or bread) bowls with the help of flipped-over muffin tins. However, if you really need to impress some audience and to have fun playing with the children, the Perfect Bacon Bowl may be a fun way to expand your vision on cooking.

Customer Issues and Concerns

Now imagine paper – thin slices of bacon (greasy or less greasy, doesn’t really matter) staying perfectly wrapped around a plastic bowl while it gets heated up in the microwave and staying that way with the help of… gravity. Quite hard to imagine the final product will actually look like in the picture and listening to consumers, our hypothesis is true: the bacon slices happen very often to slide and get lost in the oven. Some people tried pinning the bacon slices to the bowl with toothpicks, but this didn’t lead either to a perfectly shaped bacon bowl, not to mention that due to the imperfect cooking of the slices, people found themselves in the situation to overcook the bacon. Which leads to even more troubles…

Almost all customers trying the product complained about grease burning inside their microwave ovens, splattering all over the place, emanating an almost toxic smell and smog and in some unfortunate cases, burning the whole microwave to a crisp.

Another issue most customers complained about is that the bowl comes in cheap plastic, an even cheaper wrapping and to their shock, with no cooking instructions, cooking time frames, no recipes or dish suggestions, nothing. Just as one disappointed customer said, it is useless and dangerous to make edible bacon bowls with it, but it makes a cute plastic bowl for your kitchen nonetheless.

The Verdict

perfect bacon bowlTo explain to you how pointless it is to purchase this product would take us double the words already written here. There are certainly other similar products to make bacon bowls with that you can find in stores together with some instructions or guidelines, not to mention that you can find products of much higher quality. If your cooking whims mandate you to absolutely make bacon bowls for the next barbeque party you’re throwing, you can use flipped – over muffin tins which can be actually more useful to you.

Miracle Socks – Anti-Fatigue Compression Socks

miracle socks1Men and women alike suffer from swollen feet and ankles and feel deeply uncomfortable having to stand for prolonged hours at their work – place. Sometimes our feet get soar and swollen even when we sit down, not to mention that large numbers of people all over the world complain about the condition commonly known as varicose veins or spider veins. Our feet take us from here to there every single day of our lives and if they are aching, feeling tired, with reduced blood flow, swollen and heavy, our comfort is damaged, together with our health.

miracle socks3–          They reduce feet, legs and ankles swelling and discomfort

Some customers reported immediate results of ankles and feet getting a much necessary pain and swelling relief even after one or two consecutive wears

Customer Issues and Concerns

In truth, there are really few customer issues and concerns, but there are a few which are worth a mention to be taken as friendly warnings by those wanting to purchase these socks. One such issue is that the sizes don’t quite fit peoples’ real sizes. For instance, even the S/M socks were too large for some people, with the foot having enough room to feel comfortable (and sometimes having too much room), but the heel area reaching sometimes the ankles. Another issue reported by the customers is that after purchasing the Miracle Socks – Anti-Fatigue Compression Socks from the official website, they started receiving telemarketing calls without asking for them, which is considered unnecessary and disturbing. However, customers reported that the quality of the socks is too important to rate them poorly just because the company chooses certain ways of promoting the business. One last concern is related to the socks getting a little stretched after prolonged wearing, but this issue is easily solvable with washing the socks according to some customers.

The Verdict

miracle socks2Our review on the Miracle Socks – Anti-Fatigue Compression Socks inclines towards the positive end, as these socks indeed work as they are advertised and some people bough several pairs after the first trial, being more than satisfied with the results.

Also, the price is affordable in comparison to the high quality and the benefits provided by the socks and there were almost no complaints about their resistance in time, wear, tear or several washing sessions.

Perfect Polly

perfect polly1Would you like to have a pet bird around the house, but without the added effort of feeding, cleaning and taking it to the vet? Would you like to surprise your children with a talking parrot (you could just stop from chirping or singing with a push of a button)? Would you like to offer a friend a gag gift, give your cats a reason to stay alert or mess with their heads, or just fill in an antique cage with a low – maintenance bird only for decorations? To answer all these questions and needs, we have the Perfect Polly, a life – sized parrot which acts like a real bird (in terms of moving and chirping) but which doesn’t need extra care, as it is a toy – bird. Today we will take a look at the Perfect Polly and see if it is so fun and interesting as advertised.


Perfect Polly is an As Seen On TV product available in online stores as well as on Amazon. It is a toy parrot that is designed with a motion active sensor, making the parrot become alive any time you walk by it. It moves its head and tail, it sings and usually it stands on a perch and it can move its head and tail in a real – life manner. It also chirps and can be quieted with a push of a button. It comes with an affordable price.

Reasons to Buy the Perfect Polly

Even if the Perfect Polly doesn’t require feeding, cleaning or nurturing, it is a nice way for kids to be kept entertained and aware of their capacity to look after real pets in the future.

–          Perfect Polly makes an amusing gag gift for friends or family members

–         If you already have a bird, Perfect Polly can become an interesting companion if placed near or in front of your own parakeet.

Customer Issues and Concerns

perfect polly2This chapter is going to be a little expanded, as we gathered a lot of customer issues and concerns regarding the Perfect Polly, as it seems the advertising is misleading regarding the toy’s true qualities. One of the first (and most common) issues signaled by the ones who bought the bird is that it makes sounds so low on volume, it is practically impossible to hear it sing, not to mention that the rattle of it moving its head is annoying and preventing people from hearing the bird’s chirping. Another common issue identified by almost all customers is that the bird can’t be set on the perch, as they don’t match at all – the holes and pegs are just too small. Customers ordering this item were surprised to see it coming with defects (the legs were wrongly attached to the bird’s body, the bird’s legs were attached to the body with visible, bad looking globes of clear glue, the bird stopped working in less than a day and so on). Some even complained about the bird’s flawed motion detection system, while others were disappointed by the low quality (and short life span) of the bird.

The Verdict

perfect polly3Our review on the Perfect Polly, unfortunately can’t stir toward a positive conclusion, but on the contrary, it is a negative one. The bird is built in a cheap, defective manner and its advertised features don’t match the reality. While it is conceptually interesting and fun, the final product is far from what is marketed: the singing volume is too low compared with the noise made by the head moving, the bird and the perch don’t match, thus making it hard to place it there, some birds may come with fabrication errors and at this price, there are other similar products found in toy stores or regular ones which might actually function better.

Customer Issues and Concerns

Given the qualities of this work – out system, there are few to none customers issues and concerns. However, similar products can be found in regular or sporting goods chain stores, but those ones are significantly lower in quality than the Perfect Pullup. The price of this product may be a little higher than the average, but customers consider it is a fair price in comparison to the quality, utility and durability of the product.

The Verdict

StufZ Burger Press Review

Stufz-Review02Many As Seen on TV products focus on making our lives in the kitchen easier. One such kitchen gadget is the StufZ Burger Press, which provides help in creating better stuffed burgers. And who doesn’t love stuffed burgers, right? Our StufZ Burger Press review will explore the product’s features, upsides, and downsides, in order to work out how good it is at helping you make the best stuffed burger you’ve ever tasted.


If we were to pay heed to the StufZ Burger Press infomercials blindly, then we’d call this As Seen on TV product the ultimate device for creating stuffed burgers. It’s suitable for any type of ground meat, be it beef, turkey, chicken, or pork. The ads also boast the product’s sealable feature, which promises to keep all the flavors and goodness safely contained within. The product also promises to create perfectly even burgers in terms of thickness, which, in turn, makes it easier to cook the burgers just right and just the way you like them. The StufZ Burger Press costs $9.99, with $4.99 for shipping and handling, but bear in mind that you can’t opt out of the “buy one, get one free” option the seller provides, so this will add an extra $4.99 to your bill.

Reasons to Buy the StufZ Burger Press

–          It’s made of durable materials.

The top feature offered by this product, as stated in more than just one StufZ Burger Press review, is that it’s made of food-grade materials. This makes the product high quality, as it’s very durable and it can withstand a lot more wear and tear than you’d think.Stufz-Review01

–          It can make really huge burgers.

We acknowledge the fact that America has a problem with super-sizing – and the StufZ Burger Press makes no exception. It can create burgers as big as 1/2lbs. The pocket is huge and can contain just about any kind of stuffing you might think of, from veggies to cheese.

–          It can be easily cleaned.

The StufZ Burger Press is very easy to piece apart, as well as to put back together after you’ve washed it. For even more comfort and ease of use, it’s also dishwasher safe.

Customer Issues and Concerns

It might take a while to learn how to properly use the StufZ Burger Press, as an online StufZ Burger Press review notes. At first, many users are tempted to put the stuffing at the top of the layers, which made their burgers very thick. This, of course, meant they also took a longer time to cook than usual and proved a challenge to the users’ patience. However, this is not the biggest issue the users took to the device. Most of them complained of the fact that the stuffing tended to leak. This can be solved, as long as you remember not to over-stuff them, or by pinching the burgers sealed at the top. It also takes a while to figure out how much meat to place inside the StufZ Burger Press. Add too little at the top and your burger will be leaky; add too much and it will take longer to grill, which will also alter its texture and make it uneven. Another feature, which many users would have appreciated, but is missing, is the use of a non-stick material in making the product. Making several burgers one after another can turn out a bit messy.

Stufz-Review03The Verdict

Our StufZ Burger review comes to the conclusion that this could be a great product. It’s not bad as it is, but several things could be improved. It would be great if the product came with some instructions, so that the users find the learning process less frustrating. Then, the ordering process on the producer’s website can get a bit confusing as well, which detracts from the product’s actual quality – one option is to order it off Amazon. Furthermore, it would pay off to make the StufZ Burger Press from better plastic, preferably one with non-stick features. All in all, buy the product if you’re a huge burger fan, but know that other options are also available on the market (and for similar prices). They might just be better, at the end of the day.

Dolce Gusto Genio Review

Dolce-Gusto-Genio-review03Are you a coffee drinker? Then you’re probably thinking of purchasing your own machine for making quality caffeinated beverages at home – if you don’t already own one, that is. The Nespresso line from Nestle offers affordable Dolce Gusto coffee makers for buyers to enjoy at home. There are many Dolce Gusto options for you to choose from: the Piccolo (which is the smallest of all the coffee machines in this series), the Genio (the newest model), Melody 2, Creativa, Circo, Creativa, etc.. All models have been featured in a range of infomercials. Prices of the Dolce Gusto coffee machines range from $45 to $200.

For today’s post we selected the Dolce Gusto Genio. The Dolce Gusto Genio review below aims to figure out how good this machine is at producing top-notch coffee brews, both for discerning palates, as well as for regular drinkers.


The Dolce Gusto is an espresso machine which comes in several variants and can be purchased online, via DolceGustoCoffee.com. Our Dolce Gusto Genio review focuses on the new release of the product, available as of August, 2013. The coffee comes from flavor capsules, which can be purchased separately, in 16-capsule boxes. Some of the most popular flavors include black coffees (Americano, espresso, dark roast, lungo, morning blend, etc.), specialty drinks (cappuccino, skinny cappuccino, latte macchiato, skinny latte, caramel latte, vanilla latte, chocohino, mocha), exotic drinks, and chilled drinks. The capsules are based on powdered milk and the machine comes with a 15-bar pressure pump.

Reasons to Buy the Dolce Gusto Genio

–          It offers numerous flavors

There’s so many of them they can almost get confusing! Users can freely select between regular coffee brews, flavored drinks, chilled drinks and others. The Dolce Gusto Genio even offers the wildly popular Chai Tea Latte as part of its range of flavors.Dolce-Gusto-Genio-review01

–          It has a near-professional grade system

The 15-bar pressure pump-based system is great even for the more experienced coffee drinkers out there. While they may not agree with all the features and flavors of the Dolce Gusto Genio, they will, however, be impressed with its powerful system, which is, after all is said and done, able to produce impressive results.

–          It’s not expensive

The price-quality ratio of the Dolce Gusto Genio is satisfactory, according to more than just one Dolce Gusto Genio review we’ve read online. The machine costs $129, which makes it one of the low-end espresso machines offered by Nestle, as part of its Nespresso range.

–          The drinks are customizable.

Though the machine’s producers don’t specifically explain this, it’s worth bearing in mind that not all drinks require the same amount of water. One Dolce Gusto Genio review out there encourages buyers to experiment with their preferences by varying the amount of water they use.

Customer Issues and Concerns

Dolce-Gusto-Genio-review02We found one Dolce Gusto Genio review online which spoke of testing the machine both on connoisseurs of coffee and on regular drinkers. While, by and large, the regular drinkers were rather impressed with the machine, both in terms of features, as well as of flavors offered, the aficionados were mostly underwhelmed. Some of their issues included the fact that the capsules are based on artificial powdered milk. Moreover, they were curious to know whether other brands of coffee capsules are compatible with the machine, only to find out they aren’t. Less experienced users also complained at times about the learning curve involved in dealing with the machine, as well as with the fact that it might at times be difficult to find the capsules. Since most drinks require the use of two capsules, this might render the ultimate price of a single drink rather high: two capsules cost $1.19 and a box only offers eight drinks, not 16, as many would be tempted to believe.

The Verdict

The verdict of our Dolce Gusto Genio review is mixed, if leaning toward the positive side in terms of performance. Overall, the machine does provide coffee drinks which many might enjoy, especially if they’re not hardcore drinkers. Espresso fanatics, on the other hand, should probably consider other products, which are both more professional, as well as more readily available. If you’re into lattes, cappuccinos, or mochas, then the Dolce Gusto Genio is probably all right for you.
