Yes. I am reviewing one of the most expensive skin care items ever featured on my blog.
Yes. It is for wrinkles/lines/ etc.
And I can hear you saying right now:
"But Elvira. You don't have any wrinkles/lines/etc. on your face."
To that I respond:
I'm getting older. And as I get older am more annoyed and more shocked by things that happen in the world. When I get annoyed I furrow my brow and I get this unsightly #11 lines between my eyebrows. Since I haven't given up on life and I still manage a modicum of personal grooming, I pluck my uni-brow so the #11 lines between my brows is ever so apparent. When I am shocked by things I raise my brows which ends up forming two horizontal lines across my forehead. Normally I would try and cover those lines with bangs. However bangs make me look fat. I should clarify that my clothes, the couch, that chair, basically existing makes me look fat, but bangs really do make my face look rounder. So the horizontal lines in my forehead are growing deeper and deeper until one day I fear that they will challenge the Marianas Trench for depth.
Now I could solve both of these wrinkle problems with Botox. I could get a deadly poison injected into a layer of my skin using ultra fine needles. The poison would react by paralyzing the facial muscles so they would not contract when my brain sent signals to them, there by creating a placid serene non moving surface once known as my forehead. And just because I talk about Botox this way, does not mean I am against it. I might actually get it one day, but untilI do I have found something that can provide temporary relief of those pesky lines in my forehead while still allowing me to show expression other than "Frozen Surprise".
What is this miracle item? Why it is none other than Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift.
Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift is a serum/emulsion packed with 71% active ingredients that transforms into the most effective cosmetic alternative to micro-injections and other aesthetic medical procedures. That's right. It is an alternative to medical procedures. That's a win. Inhibit-Tensolift is formulated with an exclusive "three-dimensional 3D Lifting Technology" that has a cumulative lifting effect, providing visible results. I'm serious. Visible results instantly and over time I see less pronounced wrinkles between my eyes and on my forehead.
So what makes this product work? According to the scientists at Natura Bisse it's Octamioxyl®, a patented octapeptide that relaxes facial expressions and helps prevent the formation of new expression lines. Inhibit-Tensolift also fills the expression lines, fine lines, and wrinkles through volumizing ingredients included in the formula and with an augmenting layering process that works from the deepest to the most superficial layers of the skin. Lastly the Inhibit-Tensolift uses a 3-D Lifting Technology that lifts the skin thereby diminishing those pesky facial lines. Oh and when used as part of your daily facial routines you will see a cumulative lifting effect.
OK. Here's the part where I need you to sit down.
Are you sitting?
OK. Good. Because now I need to tell you how much it costs.
For 2 fl oz of the Inhibit-Tensolift you will pay $715 USD.
Yes. $715 USD. No. Not a typo. I know that is an incredible amount. But consider this:
The three most common areas for Botox injections are the crow's feet, forehead, and the lines in-between the brows. Typically you will receive 20-30 units of Botox per area. Botox is typically priced by Unit and many places near me (Washington, DC) charge approximately $10 to $16 per unit. Let's say the average is $13 per unit. Say I want to get rid of the forehead lines and the lines between my brows. That's approximately 50 units. That totals $650. But maybe I want to get rid of crows feet too. That's an additional 20 units so we're talking $910 USD for that one visit. Depending on where you go you cost for those three treatments could range from $560 to $1,120 USD!! Or I could use the Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift and stave off injections and Botox for a few more years.
Oh and if you already get Botox. I have been told by women that use the Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift that using that product in between visits to get Botox actually makes the effect of the Botox last longer, ergo, less visits!
Now some of you are thinking. "Well you got this for free. Of course you are going to say it's great."
To that I respond in my best Sherman Potter impression:
What good would it do me to recommend a product that doesn't work? If you think it's to win favor with the company sending me the product, that's wrong. Why would I want more product from a company that sends me products that don't work? If you think it's because I'm trying to be nice...who am I being nice to? I certainly am not being nice to the reader that goes and purchases an item on my recommendation and finds out it doesn't work, right? That's why I would never recommend a product that I haven't tested myself. I also would never recommend a product that doesn't work because I would lose my credibility. I certainly don't want to lose my credibility over a free sample of face cream. I'm saying that Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift works, because it really works.
So here is where I ask the ubiquitous question in most of my reviews:
Do you NEED this? NO. No one "needs" a s $715 face serum. However, does Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift work? YES. On me it did. Do I recommend it? YES. If I was on the market for such an item and had the money to spend on it, I would buy this in a heartbeat.
You can purchase Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift from Neiman Marcus, BeautyBar.com or directly from the Natura Bisse Website.
What should you do if you cannot afford such a luxurious item? Well, Either marry a rich old man with a weak pulse (JUST KIDDING) or Just live without it. We all get wrinkles. How we wear them is up to you. You can wear them with sorrow over getting older. You can wear them with pride over having "life experience" or you can ignore them and go about your life like they aren't even there. It's how young you feel on the inside that really counts. I feel about 25. How about you?
