Sarah Lee and Christine Chang went on "Shark Tank" in 2015 to raise money for their curated K-beauty e-retailer, Glow Recipe. Since their appearance on the show, Glow Recipe released its best-selling Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask, $45, which originally sold out in less than five hours. The overnight mask gets skin glowing, thanks to the watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid and alpha hydroxy acids in its formula. All you have to do is slather it on your face, hop into bed and let the mask get to work.
Sheet masks are all the rage but let's be real: It can be mighty tricky to keep them from slipping off your face. Enter a clever product line featured in a February 2018 "Shark Tank" episode: Dermovia's Lace Your Face Facial Mask, $15 each, which comes in brightening, calming and hydrating varieties, among others. What sets these sheet masks apart is that they hook onto your ears so they won't fall off.
Yes Mo Beauty
Upper lip hair is a legit beauty concern but it's not always easy to find time to hit up a salon to have it waxed. The thing is, at-home waxing kits are hit or miss. But Jennifer Paschall (who owns a waxing salon in Los Angeles) and her business partner Gita Vasseghi created wax strips that actually work. The No Mo-Stache Portable Lip Waxing Kit, $12, comes with 24 strips and soothing aloe cream.
Talk about impressive: In 2013, recent high school grad Lani Lazzari appeared on "Shark Tank" and wowed billionaire Mark Cuban into investing in her line of all-natural scrubs. She now employs more than 20 people! Our top pick from her brand is the Simple Sugars Green Tea Facial, $19, which is gentle enough for everyday use and offers antioxidant protection.
TBH, we were kind of over natural deodorants — until we watched Jess Edelstein and Sarah Ribner extoll the virtues of their PiperWai Natural Deodorant, $14, on a 2015 episode. The natural, aluminum-free cream deo relies on activated charcoal to curb odor and absorb moisture. A natural deodorant that nixes smells and sweat? Sign us up.
Those of us with curly hair know how difficult it is to reign things in — and gel often leaves strands crunchy. That's why our ears perked up when we heard hairstylist Alanna York describe her Controlled Chaos The Original Curl Creme, $24.99 on "Shark Tank" in 2016. It leaves curls frizz-free, shiny and smooth sans any stiffness.
A bikini wax is a summer must-have for many of us — but it often comes with a side of pain. Leave it to an anesthesiologist to come up with a fix. Edna Ma, MD, brought her BareEase Prep Kit, $25, on a 2013 "Shark Tank" episode, explaining that the cream works by temporarily numbing skin with lidocaine so that you can wax to your heart's content without the discomfort. The kit also comes with a latex panty that helps the cream absorb.
Cutting your own hair sounds like a recipe for disaster, but not so with CreaProducts' innovative CreaClip, $24.86. Appearing on a 2016 episode of "Shark Tank," inventor Mai Lieu showed how her hair tool could be used to DIY a haircut with ease. Snap on the tool (there's one for bangs and one for the rest of your hair) and snip off the excess for an even cut — it really is that simple.
The Lip Bar
One of the easiest ways to showcase your personality is by rocking a bold lip — and The Lip Bar Lipsticks, $12, come in a whole host of can't-look-away shades. What sets these lip colors apart is that they're infused with nourishing ingredients like vitamin E oil, avocado oil, shea butter and coconut oil, as creator Melissa Butler told investors on a 2015 episode of Shark Tank.
Medical esthetician Lydia Evans shared her patented 3-in-1 Sw&g Bar, $16.99, on a 2014 episode. This handy-dandy product cleanses, exfoliates and soothes. It's particularly useful when used after shaving or waxing since it prevents ingrown hairs and calms irritation.
If you’re anything like us, then you can’t get enough of “Shark Tank.” Seriously, we could marathon reruns on our DVR all day long and never get bored watching Mark Cuban and gang invest their dough in some seriously unique brands. Some of the most successful “Shark Tank” products include the Scrub Daddy, a smile face-shaped sponge that cleans both sides of forks, knives and spoons at once, and the Squatty Potty, a toilet stool that makes it easier to poop. (Yes, we’re serious.)
Since the show premiered in 2009, plenty of beauty entrepreneurs have stepped foot into the tank in an effort to secure money to grow their brands. And we have to admit, we’ve found some of our go-to products by bingeing old episodes, regardless of whether or not they nabbed any funds. We’ve rounded up our favorite beauty brands and products featured on the show — because sometimes “As Seen on TV” is actually a good thing. Bonus: All of the following companies were started by women!
