When we divided up the writing assignments and I was given Aqua Globes, I was pretty happy. I feel like Aqua Globes and I have been through a lot together. It was one of the first products in my career I was asked to research. I've seen them indoors, outdoors, on Christmas Trees and used in, well let's just say "unconventional" ways to help promote herbal stimulation.

And Aqua Globes keeps going.

Claims - What Are Aqua Globes?

Aqua Globes are little watering globes attached to long, cylindrical glass tubes that stick into the ground. They are similar in form to basters but instead of squeezing the end to get out the juice, the Aqua Globes use a mix of gravity, pressure and humidity to disperse water as-needed. The things look like little spherical Space Needles sticking out of the plants. And with the abstract church glass look, they actually add an element of organic style to plants. Much better looking than those little plant feeder sticks (in my opinion).

Aqua Globes provide the following:

  • Measures approximately 3" x 14" each
  • Plants Stay Perfectly Watered For Up To 2 Weeks
  • Glass Balls Provide An Automatic Drink For Potted Plants
  • No spills to clean up and no more over-watering
  • Individually Crafted With Hand-Blown Glass

Review - Aqua Globes Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Yeah, the complaints are out there. They range from, " It already emptied by lunch ," to, " this just filled with dirt ." There's also some older complaints regarding phone orders . And then there's one that I don't understand:  a 'mother' writes that her 8-year-old son had one break on him when he was trying to clean it out and got stitches in his hand. Not to be mean, but w hy is an 8-year-old allowed to play with long, top-heavy glass products? (This is why we don't take complaints as gospel:  hope everyone is okay, but we'd like to see documentation of the case before getting too mad). The commenters on the thread seemed to agree with my sentiments.

And, so long as everyone's okay, exploding Aqua Globes would be cool - I think we found a new use :-).

Typically, we've discovered that the Aqua Globes don't always hold as long as advertised. We've also know the product has been around at least three years, can be found on Wal-Mart shelves every Spring and have had remarkable success, so somewhere someone is getting them to work with satisfaction. Remember, when it comes to products like this, Topsy Turvy and the like, reading the directions is paramount! Don't assume you just can get it to work because it looks easy enough. Often times in those little paper instructions there's a few tips that help the product work at peak efficiency.

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
