Texas’ favorite infomercial is giving us bad high school flashbacks

Well, I would have picked the FoodSaver, but you can’t argue with Google Trends, I suppose. According to a new study, the most popular infomercial product in Texas is as clear as your skin is after using the product.

A study by All Home Connections, an AT&T authorized online retailer, found that the most popular infomercial product in the Lone Star State is Proactiv. You know, that supposedly miraculous skin care treatment that they show spots for on MTV all the time. The folks behind the study said they looked up the “top-grossing infomercial products of all time” on Google Trends and collected data for each state over the past 12 months. 

Not familiar with Proactiv? Refresh your memory, as you might refresh your pores with a retanoid acne treatment. Kelly Clarkson swore by it:

So did Jessica Simpson:
