I like these better than frownies
on November 14, 2011
I've used frownies for a while. I could only ever use the between the brow ones as the others were uncomfortable and fell off during the night. I got a good result with Frownies but getting them to stick and then getting them off, not so great.
These stick and they come right off in the morning. I can make one rectangle one stick between my eyebrows for 4 or 5 nights. After the first night, it loses some of its stickiness so I apply a drop of moisturizer to it and stick it on. It stays. On the 3rd night I washed the patch and it got stickier. Hard to complain about that. I think 4 or 5 nights max on the rectangle one is probably the max for me. Between my former use of frownies and now these, I have no frown lines... when I'm not frowning. And therein lies the difference between these and Botox. With botox (which I haven't had for over a year), I can't frown much so the lines don't crease over and over again. With these, yeah, they get relaxed and refreshed and the creases are gone, but I can still make creases by frowning. I've gotten pretty good at remembering not to frown
I used the ones that go around your mouth for the first time last night. Felt MUCH better than the frownies brand and stayed on all night. I was expecting nothing. Those nasal labial folds aren't going anywhere fast without some kind of dermal filler that I don't want to spring for just now. I was shocked when I woke up and they were smoothed out. It didn't last of course. I didn't expect it to. It was ONE night. But just the fact that they could spend 8 hours NOT folded is a pretty cool thing. We'll see if there's any real difference with continued use. Somehow I doubt it.
For what they are, they're great. Will they take all the lines out of your face the way Botox or dermal fillers would? No, but there is a definite difference, which beats the heck out of no difference. :)
