Instant Lifts Shark Tank Pitch
Instant Lifts solves the problems for cellulite and sagging skin for women. They have a clear derma adhesive and apply in six areas of the body. The product is not just a piece of tape, the adhesive last twelve to fifteen hours.
They have seventy-five thousand dollars and have been selling for five months selling at $19.95 for five pair. They have other products with different patents, which are not included in the deal.
This pitch to me, is one of the worst that played out in Shark Tank, even worse than the ones that fumbled what to say in the pitch. Penilopee killed this deal with her comments back to the Sharks, saying she has a life outside of this product, and thinking that they should not have disclosed the other body parts.
Due diligence would have likely killed the deal when the sharks discovered the other products. Trust would be called into question because they would never know what was not being disclosed.

Instant Lifts after Shark Tank
The company has a product that people are going to buy, so appearing on Shark Tank wins them the after show effect. Instant Lifts is marketing their product everywhere under the name Skinnies, but the Sharks could have taken this company to the next level in retail stores. Now it is in boutiques and online.
