Tips for frownies

1) The glue on the back of these Frownies is quite strong. As such, I recommend that you only wear these on nights when you plan on taking a shower the next morning. This is because the steam from the shower will help in dissolving the glue and therefore removing the Frownie. Otherwise, if you are just washing your face say over the sink the next morning, you'll have to spend at least a few minutes wetting the Frownie, waiting a bit, trying to pull it away from your face a bit, wetting it some more, etc. Unless you are the type of person who feels comfortable YANKING the Frownie and glue from your face (which to me would be too rough on your skin), it is going to take a bit of work to soften the Frownie/glue. Therefore, iIt's much much easier to just let the steam from the shower do most of the work. What I find helps is….before you go into the shower, wet the Frownie well, and try and pull up at least some of the edges of the Frownie. This in turn will help the steam/water from the shower get under the edges of the Frownie to help dissolve the glue….
2) As far as applying the Frownie before bed, I find that a smaller piece of the patch is better, so I will often cut them down a bit in size. The reason for this is….I usually apply the Frownie to either the area immediately over my eyebrow (where I have a deep horizontal line) or else to the area between my two eyebrows. Either way, I find the patches are too big and end up pulling too big an area of my skin together due to the sheer strength of the glue. The Frownie's directions really aren't good at explaining this or giving you any 'tips' but….because this glue is so strong, and the patches somewhat big (at least for my face), if you use the entire patch it can actually seem to create MORE 'wrinkles' because the strong glue can pull on your skin, PARTICULARLY along the edges of the Frownies patch. In addition, if you DO wet the entire surface area of the patch and then apply it to your face, the EDGES of the patch (which are very distinct and somewhat 'sharp'), can often dig INTO your skin, and when you remove the patch, you are left with 'dents' on your face from the edges of the patch. Therefore, when I wet the back of the patch, I only wet the center section of it….NOT the edges. I then place the patch on my face and press on the center of the patch only, leaving the edges of the patch remaining dry and therefore not stuck to my face. Depending on the size of the patch and where on my face I placed it, I might then take small scissors and cut off the edges of the patch if they are protruding too much.

These do reduce the depth of brow creases between the eyes, of course you have to use them consistently to get the best result. I have only been using them for a couple of weeks but I see that they work. One word of caution - if you are older & have skin that holds onto creases & lines from pressure (like a pillow case wrinkle) - make sure you remove the used product early enough to allow time for your skin to recover. There may be little edge lines from the paper that appear once removed. It is also best to limit the amount of time you wear them - longer = more likely to wake up with those 'edge lines'. This product was created a long time ago & it seems the simple materials haven't changed either. They are brown craft paper, with what I believe to be the original formula for postage sealing tape glue on one side. You can still buy the sealing tape & if you've smelled the wet tape it smells like the Frownies. The simple combination of materials creates a pulling effect on skin once the glue dries & stiffens the paper which then basically holds the skin in position while you sleep, relaxing the muscles enough to decrease the appearance of the crease - ta da - you look a little better without Botox!

    I glue this on the ONE (frown line) between my eyebrows every night (I do sleep alone most of the time). I have found over the years that while it doesn't provide a miracle, it does slow down deepening of the ol' frown line

        I have big hope after reading so many good reviews.I tried it and now I don't believe for its effectiveness.I am sorry but for me it is a little funny to think it will work .Maybe for first signs of wrinkles,not for deep one . It was easy to take it off.

              After discovering these accidentally at a department store no longer existing, I've been using these off and on for years. What's great about Frownies is that they are simply perfectly cut and perforated triangles of glued paper. No Botox, no chemicals, no oils. Placed between the eyebrows and just above, a Frownie will keep you from frowning in your sleep and eventually, after just a few days' use, retrain your muscles to resist contracting and creating those stubborn lines. As a matter of fact, it made mine virtually disappear. I highly recommend this product.

                I absolutely love Frownies and keep a regular supply. Frownies treated the root cause of the frown lines between my eyes: muscle contraction, and re-trained the muscles, that were causing the frown, to relax. At the beginning I used them every night; now every other night is enough for maintenance. Make sure you spread the frown area apart with one hand while applying with the other, or they will simply be an ineffective sticker on your forehead.

                I tried these Frownies but couldn't notice an improvement on my wrinkles appearance. They are easy to use and are soft to my sensitive skin, but didn't do the job. I tried Lashem's Picture Perfect and it works much better.

                I actually think this is a great product. You do however need to use it consistently for deep frown lines between the eyes, to see and maintain best results. I love that this softens your wrinkles without looking like a botox wonder!

                  Works well if you use it consistently, though the best result you see does start to fade a few hours after you take it off. It doesn't give you surgical results, obviously, but it also hasn't been tested on animals, nor does it contain unpronounceable chemicals.

                  I've only used these a few nights and I already notice a difference. I'm in my 30s and don't have deep wrinkles, so I think that helps, but I do have some fine forehead wrinkles that come from raising my eyebrows too much. I found these comfortable enough to sleep in (although they are not attractive).

                  I also trim them down in size to use on the corner of my eyes for crows feet, but I need to experiment a little more to get a good fit.

                  In the morning I soak them with warm water and slowly peel off, my forehead will be red for about 10 minutes following that, but no pain.
