It looked like a football replay box. You put your head under a cover and looked into this mirror. A black light was turned on and your face turned into a zombie! The host looked through the other side and explained what you were looking at and what products would help.

    My question is whether this is legit? Is it scientific, both in engineering and skin analysis?
