Frownies

While shopping at Longs Drugs recently I came across a product that would change my life. It’s not often that any of us can boast life changing affirmations over a beauty product. I found that product, in a little white box called Frownies. Boasting itself as one of Hollywood’s beauty secrets I was overcome with curiosity and knowing how good Longs return policy is I gladly paid the asking price of 16.95$. That night I applied my first Frownie not expecting the miracle I would see the following morning. I awoke, rinsed my faced as directed to remove my Frownies and low and behold my arch nemesis the frown forehead wrinkle has greatly diminished.

What are Frownies you might ask? It’s actually quite simple. It’s a paper product that has been soaked in some type of adhesive. It’s actually very similar to the Biore strips for pulling out nose blackheads. You wet the Frownie and stick in anywhere on your face, I bought the “Forehead and Between the Eyes” set. After moistening the Frownie you apply it to your chosen wrinkle”then off to sweet dreams. The following morning you splash your face with water getting the Frownie nice and moist to insure an easy release from the face (and also so not to pull on the skin while peeling off).

I saw results after my first application of a Frownie to my forehead wrinkle.

According to the Frownies website they work by gently re-educating the facial muscles allowing for a younger more relaxed-looking skin.

I paid 16.95$ for my Frownies but see them listed on their website for 19.95$ which includes shipping which of course mine did not as I bought them at a local store. The box holds 144 patches, which will last me 144 days as I only use one patch nightly. You can use more than one patch depending on where you want to prevent wrinkles. The website is aptly named www.frownies.com.
