It's no-no.

Anyone here who finds this TV commercial annoying? I do.

I find all snake oil products - and their over the top, emotion/insecurity-targeting advertisements - very annoying. They're frauds that skirt around various regulations and laws while making money off people who want to believe the product actually works.

There are only two ways to permanently stop hair from growing (three if you include testosterone for some body parts) and they both *hurt* and are time consuming, yet for 120 years grifters have been selling products that promise to "revolutionize" the industry...

I hate commercials and no longer have to watch them. Instead of paying a large monthly cable or satellite bill, I belong to Amazon and Netflix and livestream HDTV via WIFI. If I want news, I use the internet. If I want to watch current programs, I can watch Hulu ... but Hulu has commercials and I rather like NOT having commercials.

I've seen the no-no commercial and have been reliably informed by two different women that this product doesn't work nearly so well as the advertisements claim.

What kind of a name is No-No for a hair removal product? Honestly. There must be a book somewhere titled 10001 Stupid Names For Commercial Products. :lol:
