The "neck & jaw" strips help appearance when first applied. However .. the first time I used one, I lost patches of skin upon removal. After the scabs healed (lol) I thought I would try it again, and be more careful when pulling off the adhesives. I was having coffee with a friend, and she asked, "Why do you have tape behind your ear ?" I learned from that .. Do not stick the face-lift tabs over the Pro-Lift tabs, one upon the other. Both had slipped & shifted loose. I'm 68 years old, and feel that I should finally opt out of cosmetic surgery. .. although that "Joan Rivers vanity" still speaks from the mirror. A surgical face lift only last about 7 years .. so I find this product the next-best alternative; and I'm thankful for development & distribution of these beauty products.
I'm now 62 years old and thanks to some lucky genetics in facial bone structure, usually came off looking younger than my age.
Until recently. The past 2 years have seen jowls come to my face and neck an unmistakable marker of my true age.
I have lived with this, unhappily, while I consider surgery which for a variety of reasons, I really want to avoid.
However, several tines a year I an in the public eye, as part of a musical group that tours nationally each year, and internationally every few years. There are photographs, interviews, meeting a lot of people I'd like to look my best for. I just couldn't bear to accept looking so much older than I had in previous years.
So, I tried the Face, Neck and Eye Lift, the Secret Pro Neck and Jaw Lift, and the Instant Face Neck and Eye Lift products. (hereafter referred to as the "Lifts"). I took a few weeks to experiment, and learn how to use them undetectably. The Neck lifts were pretty much undetectable unless I wore my hair up high; the face Lifts were placed very close to the ear; lower ear straight across, and upper ear/temple slanted up, both covered with the front of my haircut, which I gelled into place. I found either Face Lift product worked fine, but I liked the connivence of the Secret Lift Pro, and tended to use them most of the time (you may prefer the other product however; everyone's hair coverage is different. I suggest you try them all; they are reasonably priced, I think, for the results). The Final Exam was when I wore them around the house for a day and night, and my husband thought I "looked great today" (said so), yet never detected the Lifts! Fortified, I "went public" (very public!) for last summer's events and shows.
They were an unmitigated success. To make a long story short, everyone (including myself), thought I looked pretty damn good. And no one ever suspected I was using the Lifts. Wow! These are great!
Flash forward to the present day. In anticipation of another short tour this month, I ordered my stock of Lifts. THEN I FORGOT TO PACK THEM ON MY CROSS COUNTRY TRIP, and found myself Lift-less 3 days from my first important appearance ( a private party for one of my favorite actors!), Wothout those Lifts, I truly felt I might as well just turn around and go home, so great was my dependence on the significant appearance-booster of the Lifts.
So, late on the night of my arrival (and finding upon unpacking that I had forgotten the Lifts), I ordered another batch of Lifts for delivery to my hotel, and sent a rather desperate email to CosmeSearch (the company who sells all the products), begging them to somehow speed my delivery (deliveries for my past order always came promptly and within the promised "Standard Mail" timeframes, but I knew the far bounds of that time frame would not be soon enough this time). I didn't expect success: delivery times tend to be pretty firm, as each vendor has their own standard procedures for fulfillment of orders and I don't imagine they like to disrupt their fulfillment chain.
So here's the miracle part: A CosmeSearch representative emailed me a reply within hours...and this was late at night on the west coast! They said the would "upgrade your order to expedited shipping tomorrow". I offered to pay. They declined and said "free of charge". I mean, how often do you get a great product, that level of customer responsiveness, and accommodation to your special circumstance? I know the answer. In fact I almost hesitate to write these details as I can't believe that level of responsiveness is "normal", But you can be sure there's a person at the other end of your email who promptly reads and responds to our request or comment. I also think you will like the products too...as long as you experiment and test them before making your public debut!
So I'm blown away. I will be getting my Lifts delivered to me in my hotel in time for my first important appearance .
Great product, even greater customer service. What do you expect? 5 Stars. Wish I could give 6!
I've already posted a review on its counterpart Face lift- I am sure the more professional and higher quality ones are great. Can see where this could work however trying to dominion your own is near impossible and if you do not have long hair DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Saw similar product on Shark Tank, actually I thought this was the one but it can't be. The premise behind this is s dual adhesive oversized length smooth elastic that you pull your skin up on one side, adhere the strip, wrap around the nape of your neck - that's why you need long hair to cover it- then lift other side of skin and adhere other side of tape. Kind of like a backwards sling if you will!! Again in theory if it were of better quality I think this type product is fabulous just these don't hold up well. Snapped several trying to learn to apply- one flew off and hit my Friend right in the face!! Gotta laugh :) at least it happened at home and not in public!! Still months later have permanent indentations on my skin from whatever the adhesive they use is made from - it's like a permanent crinkle and that I do not like!! Again theory and premise behind it is great just look for a higher quality item..
I used to love this product and ordered it many times thru the cooler months. It worked great and stayed on for hours. Made me look so much younger. I saw my young face again. Then, alas, warm weather came. I cannot get the neck bands to stick no matter what I do. Naturally I do the cleaning, the alcohol etc. Any sweat loosens them and if you have long hair (which most women do that want to hide these), your tacky neck under your hair will pop them right off. I even bought spirit gum and applied it on top of their adhesive, let it get tacky, held it on with my fingers, pressed on it, rubbed it for 1 minute or more. It would pop off in 1/2 hour or less. I even tried stuff I knew wouldn't work like using talc to absorb the moisture. Of course that did nothing. Only after putting a LOT of Rubie's Costume Spirit Gum on, holding it firmly as I walked around the house doing chores with 1 hand for minutes, did it stick. Then I could actually sleep the night with it on, and it stayed until I removed it. They need to improved the adhesive for the hot weather. They have stronger bands coming out, but I tried one in the heat and the same thing happened. I am going to try some other companies for this type of product, because this is very time consuming. The company, itself, is fabulous and the best I ever dealt with. I have told this problem to them and twice, they sent me more bands free, as I'd go thru a pack at 1 time. I decided to skip the band on the neck thing and try the "Original" lift with the 3 strings. However, I had lost a string. They sent me a new pack for free of those too. If you email them, they'll get back to you in minutes, hardly hours. Really hope they figure out the sweat issue.
