Original web offer details & such: BOGO Sets - $19.99 + $9.95 S&H + $9.99 additional processing fee Includes: Two cans of whatever color you pick. Bonus: 1 can of Flex Shot w/ extension tube. Sales tax:  CA, FL & NJ Guarantee: “100% Satisfaction Guaranteed.” Notes: Offer only for Continental US.

Once upon a time, I thought no As Seen on TV product could have the success OxiClean and Snuggie have had. OxiClean is now a mainstream shopping detergent, found on shelves next to Clorox. And Snuggie, well, the luster’s gone off the shine some - or everyone has one at this point.

Then Phil Swift came pummeling through our Televisions, with his Billy Mays outfit and similar features - minus the bear - with a product that could seal a door that’s manufactured to the bottom of a boat, and row the boat across a pond without sustaining an leak.

Gawdamned  Flex Seal . Was anything so popular in the last four years?

Four years later, we’ve had clear, brite, and now 9 additional colors to add to the arsenal. So, I guess it only goes to ask: is it worth the hype? And, can one color match?

What is the deal with Flex Seal Colors?

The colors they come in include

To go along with the classic black, clear, and brite .

Do Flex Seal Colors? Review of the Original Web Offer Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process: Pace yourself. If you’re ordering from the original website, note that you’re ordering “pairs" of Flex Seal Colors in the BOGO offer. So, if you go in thinking that you can pick one almond and one terra cotta Flex Seal, you’d end up with twice as many Flex Seal Colors as you originally anticipated.

Also, keep mind of the shipping charges. Combined, it's $19.94 per pair . Then, if you’re from New Jersey, California, or Florida, you’ll have sales tax. 

Remember: the product site provides a web offer, not just one product.

Product Performance: You might find this surprising, but a product as big as the Flex Seal line has had complaints ( He said, sarcastically. )  Here are a few sites you can read to get more detail about the original product offerings:

Final Thoughts - What to Expect

Expect people to be pissed because they can’t perfectly color match it to their items, as if Flex Seal Colors comes in RGB / CMYK color match codes or was mixed at Lowe’s before purchase. Expect people to color their old vehicles to parody to the Yellow Submar-truck. Expect Jabooody Dubs to have a field day with it. Expect that somebody’s going to try to use it as a black matte pain alternative on their ‘67 Chevelle.

And expect people to buy it by the ton, like the initial one.

Would we buy Flex Seal Colors?

Ugh. That’s a good question. I mean, I live in a quasi-resort so we always have maintenance staff fix our stuff so we’re probably not the best to ask. I’ve read and seen enough to know that the Consumer Reports review of the original is pretty spot on. And, before anyone asks, "no," we do not believe they've switched the formula since the original. I wouldn't use it for commercial / industrial use. I’d expect to use 3 coats on a project. If it was any more sturdy, you probably wouldn't be able to put it into an aerosol can.

But, that said, if it was for a light fix, especially in an area that doesn't get much water or environmental wear & tear, we’d probably roll the dice on it. To this point, we haven’t found anything better - infomercial-marketly speaking. We also wish the official colors were published so we could paint match.

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.
