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!

    This is like poor man's Botox. It really does work if you wear them every night. I am over 50 and hardly have any frown lines. I was starting to get them when I started to wear these 3 years ago. I cut the triangles once more to make them a bit smaller to fit between my brows better, it also doubles the amount of product for me. Really easy to use and they don't bother you at all when it is on.

      Gets rid of the V between your eyebrows

      Comments about Frownies Facial Pads, Use on Forehead & Between Eyes, 144 ea:

      I really love to use the Frownies between my eyebrows--I have been using them for a number of years and I can say that they do work--the "v" that I had is now gone. The only thing that I would say against the Frownies, is that they are expensive for just some paper and glue. I will only buy them when they are on sale.

        I use it at night. Be sure to get the rosewater spray to apply it. It sticks to the wrinkles overnight

              When I discovered Frownies and began applying a Frownies patch every night as part of my nightly routine, I soon noticed a change in those awful vertical lines between my eyes.  By preventing muscle movement during sleep, those strong muscles of mine started to weaken, relax and a correction began.  They were the only lines of significance that I had on my face, so I was thrilled to watch the grooves disappear and that area between my eyes transform.  I am grateful that such a simple, affordable, old school method of weakening and stopping the movement of muscle's could make such a difference.

                Had read that this product was used in Europe instead of Botox. Can definitely see a difference in just a couple of weeks of using Frownies. Easy to use for those frown lines between the brows.

                  Frownies actually work! They are like brown craft paper that have some sort of sticky on the back that is activated with a spritz of water (or rosewater for best results). You smooth out the wrinkles and place the Frownies there and leave them on for several hours or overnight. (I use mine overnight which is preferable). They work by re-training the muscles to relax Smoothing out the wrinkles and applying a Frownie keeps the muscle relaxed overnight which, in time, retrains the muscles. After a couple of weeks of using every night, there was a noticeable difference in my wrinkles between the brows. Now that I have been using most nights for a couple of months, the wrinkles are even less noticeable. The Frownies are comfortable to wear, and I almost forget they are there. A low-tech solution that really works - and they don't both my ultra-sensative skin.

                      I was hoping for the best, but the glue was itchy and the paper uncomfortable. I had to remove them. Also, they don't tell you that you need their spray to use them properly. I did order it when I found out and then tried them as directed. It's just not for me.
