Natura Bisse Inhibit-Tensolift - Review, Pictures

image from beautybar.com

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:
EXACTLY!

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.

Ready?

For 2 fl oz of the Inhibit-Tensolift you will pay $715 USD.

*Waits*

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:
Horsehockey!
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?

  1. Oh. Em. Gee. You could almost have a cosmetic procedure for that amount of money, crazy! :-O

    But I'll believe you if you say it really works. So if you don't have to worry about money, why not? Maybe by the time I need this, I'll have won the lottery (or a rich old man with a weak pulse) :-)

  2. The price point made me choke on the donut I was eating. All I could think was, "That costs as much as my rent, and car payment, and insurance, altogether!" I definitely agree that no one needs this. It'd be nice to have, but it's definitely not a necessity to live. :-)

    1. Holy crap!!!! Your rent is so inexpensive! LOL But yes. So not a necessity.

  3. As a note on Botox - I actually get Botox therapy for migraines, and it has the side effect of half-freezing my eyebrows. The outside half of my eyebrows move, the inner half doesn't, and the space between my eyebrows is smooth and doesn't move. HOWEVER, I am still capable of having expressions despite this. I don't know how Botox Cosmetic compres to Botox medical therapy, but if it's anything like what I have done, the whole "You can't move your face" is over-exaggerated.

    just my $0.02.

    1. Oooh. THANK YOU! Your feedback is helpful. I have a rather archaic view of Botox, I admit. How are your migraines now that you get this therapy?

  4. I always told my husband that my second husband I'd marry for money. When that happens I'll buy this ;) Because if I bought it now, I'd be looking for a second husband anyway, as the first would leave me lol

    1. Totally. When I told Mr. Sith the price he choked! He threatened a demise of our marriage if I actually purchased it.

  5. If it was not the serum that stopped the wrinkles,it gotta be my heartbeats that would stop when I overused, spilled or finished the bottle...coz everytime I would constantly hear KA-CHING even when I breathed closeby the product XD

    1. LOL! Thankfully it comes in a sealed airless pump bottle, bu I still feel weak in the knees when I squirt too much out.

  6. When I first read this, I thought the numbers in the price were somehow transposed, LOL, but when I saw it at another point in the post, I realized $715 was indeed the true price. I'm glad it works, though. However, for those who can't afford this, I just want to say I've had amazing results with pure Argan oil. I've had deep set horizontal lines across my forehead since I was a young child, due to squinting (I have extremely sensitive eyes). I got a 100 point perk from Sephora of Josie Maran Argan Oil, and decided to try it as an all-over moisturizer, and an added bonus was that my forehead became noticably smoother. While not perfect, I'm alot more comfortable wearing my hair pulled back. I'm not saying it will work for everyone, but if bought at a health food store, it can be an inexpensive product worth trying.

    1. THANKS!!! Your feedback is very helpful. I have not used Argan Oil enough on my face to tell if it works, but I appreciate your comments and letting people know about this. Plus it's nice that you can find Argan Oil for a fraction of the cost of the Natura Bisse!

  7. Wow.....this is the first time I've heard about a serum that works as well as botox. It sure is very expensive but interesting indeed!

  9. pics or it didn't happen :) Do you have any comparison shots?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I do and I don't. The reason I did not have any photos is because The ones I took at the beginning look absolutely awful. I have a bunch of clogged pores in my forehead and I just didn't feel comfortable with that image up on the web, un-doctored and all that. Then I didn't get a chance to take pics after use because I had a bad reaction to another product I was using and it caused a major breakout. I had to stop using all skincare including the Natura Bisse and slowly add back items until I figured out what was causing the skin issue. By then I had been off the serum for so long the lines came back and were just as pronounced as when I started. :-(

  10. I definitely need you to subject yourself to fully lit, raw and unflattering close-up comparison before/after shots before considering throwing down that dough!

    I would be lieing to say I wasn't intrigued... Sometimes I too turn to total unapologetic consumer whorism and believe that $$=quality. Sometimes it does!

    1. See above. Oh my the before pictures are a freaking Horror Story. I usually don't believe that $$ = Quality but in terms of Natura Bisse products I do. That being said. Some comments above point out that you can achieve a line-less look without such an expensive product.

  11. Wow, you ladies in the DC area are getting ripped off!! Seriously. I live in Phoenix and I get Dysport (Botox is passe here) for the 11's, the lines above the brows, crow's feet, and a little lip filler. ALL of it for $900 a visit. The lip filler is the most expensive. You all should stage a civil revolt at those Botox prices.

    1. Dysport. Must remember that. I am so behind on medical cosmetic enhancements. Thank You! Everything is more expensive in DC. Except for all the hot air that the politicians produce.

  13. I have tried a couple of products form the natura bisse line and I can say that every single one of those products work especially if you don't want to get a cosmetic procedure, and the best tip I can give you is hunt it down at the duty free.

    1. Duty Free you say? Humm. I might have to check this out!

  14. I am 42 and spent all of my childhood and teen years baking in the sun on the beach, back before all the warnings about the sun and the damage it can do. I had terrible 11's on my eyebrows from squinting all the time, as well as fine lines all over the place... I started using the Silk Naturals line of skin care and they are almost gone. The naso-labial lines are also a lot less noticeable, as are some sun spots I had forming on my forehead. I am actually okay with leaving the house without makeup again! The SN line is a heck of a lot cheaper too. I used the Face Lift Serum, the Super Serum (separately from the other serum) and the Firming Lotion and am quite pleased.

  15. 10 bucks a unit here, a brow lift via botox will set you back 350, and it lasts for months. 6+. So you're better off with botox financially.

  16. I Have used Natural Bisse line for almost 2 years now. Im 55 years old with good skin to begin with but can be dry and have fine lines around my eyes and fore head. My neck is begining to sag a little. I am using over 15 items that I alternate. I get botox around my eyes and forehead.
    I started with the tensolift line. Serum,eye,face,and neck. I saw an imediate improvement in the hydration of both neck and face. The negative was my face was too shiny and my husband hates the smell! The bigger negative is its EXTREMELY expensive. Im spending 1,500 a month. For that kind of money I think there are much better options. Laser, etc The product is very high end, very good but the line is too exstensive. They claim it repairs on a cellular level and tightens and repairs fine lines. Dont agree. Theirs only so much a facial product can do. My skin is more supple but its not a miracle by a long shot...! m
