* FollowTheLeader: A self-inflicted example; the same company also made [=FREEdHem=] hemmorhoid cream, which was advertised in the same way (first "[=FREEdHem=], the only one-application hemorrhoidal cream", then "Freedom from hemorrhoids, [=FREEdHem=] hemorrhoid cream"), and [=ActivOn=], [=RenewIn=] and [=PreferOn=], which weren't.

* MagicFeather: If you're susceptible to the placebo effect, maybe this product might work for you. However, given you've probably just read this very page debunking the product, that no longer applies. The human mind is funny, isn't it?

The notorious advertisement, which first aired in June 2006, stemmed from Better Business Bureau objections to the earlier ads' claims of "fast, safe, effective" headache relief. In reality, the product is little more than a wax stick with extremely low concentrations of various plants, and is sold as a homeopathic[[note]]i.e. useless[[/note]] remedy.

Sold as a "homeopathic remedy"
the product is little more than actually a wax stick with extremely low concentrations stick. The only other ingredients are two types of various plants, poisonous flowers and is sold as a homeopathic[[note]]i.e. useless[[/note]] remedy.
carcinogen, but don't be concerned they are diluted to ''parts per trillion''. You probably encounter higher doses of things sitting on your couch breathing.

* WhatWereTheySellingAgain: Odds are, if you didn't read the description for the page, you'd have no idea of what [=HeadOn=] actually ''is''. Y'know, besides the fact that it's applied to the forehead. Given that it's an inert stick of wax, that was probably intentional.
