Peter Belisi created the Belisi skin care line when he was bartending in Palm Beach. The products were aimed at people who wanted to appear more beautiful for an affordable price. The major products offered by Belisi include fashion accessories and clothing, but there is a skin care line hidden in the pages of the website. The skin care products are offered on their own separate website and include the Belisi Skin Tightener. At the time of this review, there does not seem to be any other Belisi skin care products listed on the website.
The official Belisi skin care website includes contact information and offers the consumer the ability to order the Belisi Skin Tightener directly from the website. There is also a “free trial” with the Belisi Skin Tightener offered at just $1.00 plus shipping and handling. While this is not “free”, it is a chance for the consumer to try the product without much up front cost.
The ingredients of the Belisi Skin Tightener are Deionized Water, Green Tea Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Glycerol Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Shea Butter, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, PEG 8 Oligopeptide, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate VP Copolymer, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, PPG-12 SMDI/Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Xanthan Gum, Peppermint Oil and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. Green tea extract is known to have antiseptic qualities, but this is the only ingredient that will help improve the look of the skin.
The key ingredient have been known to cause irritation in users with sensitive skin and the witch hazel is another irritating ingredient. There is even peppermint oil included in the Belisi Skin Tightener which is commonly used to plump the lips naturally. While this plumping effect may be one of the ways the product helps to tighten the skin, there needs to be a warning for consumers with sensitive skin and that warning is not posted on the website.
- With the purchase of one bottle of Belisi Skin Tightener, two more are sent free.
- The website includes direct ordering and contact information.
- A complete ingredient list is provided.
- The “free” trial is not really free.
- Several of the ingredients in the Belisi Skin Tightener are known to cause skin irritation, but no warning is provided.
- The shipping and handling on the “free” trial is $14.99.
- There are no ingredients known to reduce the signs of aging or the effect of aging.
The Bottom Line
The Belisi product line was created to be affordable and that the company has done. The anti-aging product, however, does not match up to the other anti-aging products available on the market today. The “free” trial is not free and the cost of the product is $69.95 plus additional shipping of $14.99. That makes the total price for the product an astounding $88.93 with the “luxury” packaging included at $3.99 more. We cannot support this product because it seems they are trying to edge more and more money from the consumer without providing a truly anti-aging product.
Consumers looking for anti-aging treatments should look for products with clinical evidence showing their products can produce results. The ingredients list should be complete and a trust worthy company will provide a free trial that is really free or at least a money back guarantee. Consumers looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines should consider a product containing Matrixyl 3000 or Argatensyl. Both of these products have several clinical trials showing their effectiveness to reduce the signs of aging.
