Best Shark Tank Wrinkle Creams
Some of the best and most highly successful products to come from Shark Tank are face creams! It might be surprising, since there are so many utilitarian products that cover pretty much all walks of life, such as food, home improvement, car accessories, and more. Here is an in-depth review of some of the top-rated Shark Tank wrinkle creams, lotions, and other skincare products to come out from ABC’s hit TV show!
Full disclosure: Skin care products reviewed here either appeared on Shark Tank or recommended by us and should’ve appeared on the show in our opinion:
Although not a face cream, AngelLift should be mentioned here as it produces the same desired results as anti-ageing creams. Entrepreneurs Kelly and Aaron Bruce pitched AngelLift to the Sharks in season 5, as a non-surgical, non-injection, prosthetic alternative to face lifts. QVC Queen Lori Greiner saw AngelLift as the perfect infomercial product, and made a deal with the pair.
As we age, gums recede and skin loses its elastic properties. This causes a wrinkling around the mouth and cheeks. Skin reacts quickly to being lifted from beneath the surface, which creates smoother, younger, and tighter looking skin. AngelLift is comprised of a soft, flexible Dermastrips, manufactured from a special, surgical grade resin. These Dermastrips help replace the pressure lost as gums naturally recede.
The Dermastrip, when placed in the mouth beneath the wrinkled facial skin, offers a non-invasive way to lift out lower lines and wrinkles. This sub-dermal technology adds volume under the skin in a natural and painless way. The entrepreneurial duo have conducted extensive research when developing AngelLift, and the product is currently patent pending with third-party clinical trials. However, it is stated that improvement is significant over 30 days. Their initial test market saw over $3 million in sales. This product genuinely seems to work to reduce facial lines and wrinkles.
Blithe Pressed Tundra Chaga Serum
Not sure what a pressed serum was? Most Shark Tank viewers didn’t know either until this product was introduced. It turns out that pressed serums are ultra-concentrated regular serums packages in a firm, gelatinous solid form. It might be difficult to apply the first time you use it, as “warming” it up with your fingers, as you would scoop out other lotions or creams with your fingertips. Luckily, the serum comes with a mini spatula to help you apply it. Just one pea sized amount of this pressed treatment will be more than enough to cover your whole face and neck. Gently pat on for the best results after your usual washing, cleansing, and toning routine.
This serum combines the best aspects of moisturizers and essential oils. The “tundra” part of the name comes from the fact that the Chaga mushrooms, whose extract is the main ingredient in the serum, are harvested directly from those wintry deserts. The mushroom extract is cooled, not heated, to avoid evaporation or elimination of the natural nutrients, and mixed with a variety of lightweight, natural fermented oils including argan oil and olive oil. There are no parabens, mineral oils, unnatural fragrances, or synthetic dyes in the Blithe Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum.
The serum has been proven to comfort, moisturize, brighten, and nourish your skin, despite its remarkably lightweight, silky smooth formula. Apply in the morning for a youthful glow that lasts all day, or use it at night to wake up with rejuvenated skin after it works its magic as your body rests and resets itself. Users of the Blithe Chaga Tundra Serum report brighter, healthier skin after just a few uses!
Angels and Tomboys Lotions and Sprays for Kids and Tweens
Okay, so hear us out on this one. It’s technically not a face cream so much as a line of body lotions and health sprays made directly for kids! Developed by two sisters, Madison and Mallory Boyd, and their mother Viara Boyd, this dynamic duo saw a need for young kids to express themselves in a hygienic way, especially for kids who don’t yet like the heavy scents of so-called grown-up cologne, perfumes, serums, and more. The aspiring entrepreneurs originally asked for a $55,000 investment at 20% equity, and while all of the Sharks were interested in the products and the fun scents, most of them didn’t realistically see the line taking off. The team was awarded a $60,000 investment at 33% equity, and ever since then, the Angels and Tomboys line has been going strong.
Designed especially for sensitive, youthful skin, these lotions and sprays are made specifically with all-natural, all-vegan, cruelty-free ingredients and no harsh chemicals such as parabens. Ingredients include aloe vera, shea butter, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and more, so you might recognize some of your favorite all-natural oils and vitamins from other products and even foods. In any case, the best part of these lotions and sprays are their unique, humorous, and totally kid-friendly scents. Names of scents include Candy Star Glam, Frozen Hot Chocolate, Peanut Butter Jelly Team, Rockin’ Blueberry, Deep-fried Ice Cream, Watermelon Funk, Lemonade Doughnuts, Cotton Candied Apples, and even Monkey Farts. Even the pickiest kids will find a scent they like, with variations ranging from sweet to fruity, but without the overwhelming musk and flower scents of scents geared towards adults.
Saavy Naturals Lavender Chamomile Salt Scrub
Hugo and Debra Saavedra were a pair of organic farmers, chefs, and menu consultants for various restaurant chains. Eventually their history of preparing food with flowers and other herbs, the duo began to explore other options of using these plants, such as making scrubs, soaps, and creams, all carefully created with a balance of plant extracts, natural botanical glycerin, butters, and nourishing essential oils. The 100% natural skin care products, all of which are completely food-grade and edible, were popular at local farmers’ markets.
Before the husband and wife entered the Shark Tank, they had built up a soap company in the past, but unfortunately, due to inexperience, had lost controlling interest. When they came on the show, they were seeking $220,000 at 10% equity, claiming that their products would be different from anything they had ever seen, felt, or tasted. Some of the Sharks weren’t crazy about the product, especially when they sampled some bite-sized pieces. Most of the Sharks believed the soap business was too competitive, but Barbara offered a $200,000 investment at 40% equity. Despite the huge jump, the husband and wife pair accepted, and they got the support they needed to get this innovative skin-food line off the ground!
There are a variety of different product lines from Saavy Naturals, including bar soaps, body washes, shampoos, exfoliating body scrubs, and classic creams. All come in a variety of different scents that arise naturally from the organic ingredients. Some of the body cream ingredients include passionflower, horsetail, willow bark, marshmallow extract, and more. The creams are remarkably lightweight and absorbable, leaving no greasy residue on your skin. Each product is handmade, only in small batches to keep the ingredients fresh, and animal lovers will be happy to know that the plant sourced ingredients are all vegan, cruelty-free, and even gluten free. Without any artificial preservatives, these products will stay fresh for a year after you open them and, if you leave them sealed, they’ll stay fresh for up to three years! You can check on the expiration date that comes with each package – they are food, after all.
Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist
The Whamisa product line is the brainchild of Christine Chang and Sarah Lee, owners of the online store called Glow Recipe, which launched in the fall of 2014. In the winter of 2015, the pair entered the Shark Tank to pitch their skincare and beauty products to the sharks. Sarah and Christine both spend several years working for L’Oréal in Korea before relocating to the United States where they remained heavily involved in the United States beauty industry, working in both marketing as well as product development. The pair’s goal is to bring natural yet effective Korean beauty and skincare products to the North American market. Glow Recipe sales skyrocketed after their appearance on Shark Tank, as Korean beauty techniques are hailed as some of the most reliable out there.
So what is the Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist? Okay, so as the name suggests, this one isn’t a cream either, but rather a refreshing mist designed to hydrate and instantly calm tired, dry skin, though it can certainly improve the health and appearance of all skin types. Featuring 92.5% natural ingredients, the water-free formula blends aloe vera, olive extract, and green tea extract – all fermented naturally – to soothe skin. Simply spritz on after you’ve washed your face with your favorite cleanser, let dry for a few minutes, and follow up with a moisturizer for best results. Even after you’ve applied a full face of makeup, this portable mist can be used throughout the day to touch up whenever you feel your face needs a refresher.
Whamisa Sea Kelp Sheet Mask
Another product from Christine Chang and Sarah Lee’s Korean skincare and face cream line, the Whamisa Sea Kelp Sheet Mask is proven to brighten skin, hydrate the face, and minimize the size and appearance of pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. The all-natural sea kelp sheet mask is stored in naturally fermented sea kelp and bamboo serum, both of which have been used to brighten and moisturize the face naturally. After your usual face washing routine, simply unfold the sheet mask and lay it over your face. Pat gently with your fingertips to set the mask in place, and after 15 minutes, you can peel it off. The sea kelp sheet mask will leave a thin layer of botanical extract on the skin, which can be simply blended into the skin with the pads of your fingers.
