Write your review here. *At time of publication Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel , $38 TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 10* Why it's great: "After spending hundreds of dollars on all of the expensive eye creams and gels, I was about to give up.

The fine lines were gone and I forgot to wear under-eye concealer! I am truly shocked!" -- mbguinn, TotalBeauty.com member Agree? Disagree? Write your review here. *At time of publication Pangea Organics Facial Toner , $23 TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 10* Why it's great: "I use the Argentinean Tangerine & Thyme Facial Toner.

Write your review here. *At time of publication Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy , $85.68 TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 10* Why it's great: "Gamma Hydroxy is an awesome product. While its thick consistency put me off at first, I applied a thin layer to my skin at night and saw dramatic results in just four weeks. My mild acne completely went away and the texture of my skin improved immensely. I have some acne scarring and this product has definitely helped reduce it. After using this for six months, my fine lines and wrinkles are much less noticeable and my skin feels plump and firm. It is worth every penny." -- makeup_love, TotalBeauty.com member Agree?

Nice to know they are worth buying!

i love informercials so much

by LittleBunny Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 06:57PM Report as inappropriate

Although I haven't heard of many of these, I'm glad you did a topic like this. Maybe you could do a part two with more common TV beauty products? We don't want to fall for any bad ones!

by Taryn Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 05:25PM Report as inappropriate

I've only heard of 2 or 3 of these, clearly I'm not watching enough tv

Some high quality products on this list...Thank You!

More common products would be helpful, I haven't heard of many of these. I keep hearing rave reviews about the Clarisonic though so will be purchasing one soon. It sounds like it's worth the extra money!

I didn't that

by AvilaTania Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 06:16AM Report as inappropriate

I really like knowing this stuff ahead of time.

by Victorywriter Monday, October 24, 2011 at 04:08PM Report as inappropriate

I haven't used any of them except Proactiv, which didn't work for me, and I've heard of Clarisonic, but it's so expensive!

by LipglossandSpandex Sunday, April 17, 2011 at 04:18PM Report as inappropriate

i only heard of proactiv out of these!
