Skinnies Instant Lifts, formally known as "Instant Lifts", made their debut on Shark Tank, and although they did not secure a deal, the response was so overwhelming, we knew we had a hit on our hands.
Since airing on Shark Tank, Skinnies was a winner of "The Big Find" contest with QVC/HSN, selling out every time they have aired. Skinnies has also been chosen as a top 10 beauty product for "The List" and named "The Pick of the List".
Recently, we were named by Stylists in a National Women's Magazine as a Top 10 Way to Hide Your Trouble Spots. Skinnies has sold over 1 million since airing on Shark Tank and have grown substantially every year.
