I was dubious about buying these, but I thought that for £16, if it worked, would save me quite a lot compared to the Botox option.
I am 31, and after living in the sun and squinting for a couple of years, a short, deep line had developed between my brows. I tried all kinds of 'filler' creams (the creams that come in a pen shaped applicator) and they did absolutely nothing! I considered Botox, but actually, I think I'm a little too young still to be going down that road... It was when I was watching Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her, seeing her propped up nt he bed with sticky bits all over her face so she couldn't make any expressions, I decided to experiment with Sellotape over my forehead.. it did 'something' but the results didn't last. So I was becoming DESPERATE. Loath to start sticking gaffer tape over my brows every day, I began looking for an alternative. I can't remember where I heard about Frownies, but I found them on sale here and on Ebay, and decided to send off for a packet. When they arrived, I couldn't wait until bedtime, so I stuck one on there and then and after a couple of hours, desperate to see a result.. the line had disappeared! I wasn't too surprised to see a result as when the Frownie was in place, I could not move my forehead to frown and afterwards, my face relaxes into a serene position, instead of sinking into a frown.
I wouldn't recommend licking them and sticking them on though.... the gum tastes foul and licking them made my forehard a bit spotty! I would also recommend washing the area after you have pulled off the Frownie (the gum really does stick hard to the skin) and stroking a little Anbusol or other antispetic over the area to get any germs out.
