We are saving up for our GloPro.
We missed it when HSN offered this hand-held micro-needle device, which is supposed to help eliminate wrinkles and give you younger-looking skin.
The New York Times on Thursday did a story on GloPro, and the lede was about vendor Jamie O’Banion hawking the device on HSN for $199, with much success.
Last March the item sold out on HSN in 12 minutes, according to The Times, with 22,000 “flying out the door,” as the hosts would say. That amounted to 400,000 greenbacks.
Last year sales of GloPro — which is available at not only HSN but snooty Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman — hit $30 million, The Times reported.
HSN wouldn’t release its figured, but did say that GloPro is a top-selling item.
O’Banion is the founder of Dallas-based Beauty Bioscience, which makes the device.
There’s scientific research, cited in the paper, that GloPro works, and it was called “Beauty’s New Cult Device” by Women’s Wear Daily.
