i like the concept but they don't stick well at all. plus i think surgical paper tape would do the same thing, only stick better and cost much less.

I waited 9 months to write this review. I have been using this several times a week since the beginning of this year. All I can say is it really works. At 43, I look really young because I have great skin and great body, but my 11 lines are quite deep. I found frownies at one of the board. Now my 11 lines are only remotely visible. When I use my figure to feel them, they are actually so much shallower. So I know there is actual long term benefit. Some people complain about it being temporary fix. What's not? Even surgery is temporary. I am very happy about this little beauty secret.

I have been using these for about a week and I pleased with the results so far. It says on the package that you need to wear these for at least three hours at a time, for at least 30 days straight, and they will actually retrain the muscles so that the creases that you have go away and you do not create deeper lines. After the 30 days you should be able to use them 4 times a week to maintain the results. I purchased these because lately every morning when I wake up the crease between by eyes is deeper, because I stress out in my sleep!! I am 32 and I see this as a situation that is only going to get worse, so I thought I would give these a try. I have been wearing them overnight, as I figure 8 hours will give faster and better results than 3 (3 might be good if you want a boost before a big night). I am thrilled that I no longer wake up in the morning looking older than when I started. I have tried all kinds of night creams, but none are designed to address the problem that frownies are. The results wore off a bit toward the end of the day (stressful job-furrow brow a lot), but since the promise is to retrain the muscles, I expect that after 30 days the results will be more permanent. I will update you accordingly. I have to say that I will be glad when I only have to wear them 4 days a week though, because going to sleep with a "bandaid" on my head, as my husband calls them, takes a lot of the sexy out of the bed! I found them on drugstore.com for $12.95, which is pretty reasonable. You get 144 frownie triangles, which they say will last 3-4 months. I only gave it a 4 for the husband-tease factor, but these are definitely a must have for this stress case.

Once again, and I feel like a broken record, but these are kinda expensive for what they are. I mean, really, it's die-cut craft paper with envelope glue on it fer pete's sake. That being said, I suppose it's worth it to me to have pre-cut ones. I'd rather not spend the time trying to -make- my own Frownies. Anyway, they DO work but you have to be consistent and unfortunately, the results are not really lasting- you have to keep using the darn things. If you're looking for a one night fix, well, this isn't it. And if you don't sleep alone, well, these are kind of annoying and you also will have to take some teasing from the SO (my husband is greatly amused by them :)). At the very least, they definitely help things from getting worse by preventing frowning in your sleep. I can't say that that yucky line by my mouth has completely vanished. I think only some kind of injection would actually make that happen. But since that's not something I really want to do (and don't really have thousands of dollars to spend on maintaining the results, even if I did), this is the best "fix" I have found.
As others have said, too, it says right in the instructions to remove by moistening them, not by ripping them off. Sheesh. It really bugs me when people complain about that.

I purchased the ones for the forehead because the lines on my forehead were getting embarrassingly deep - I looked like I was always frowning. After using them every night for a few weeks, the lines are almost gone. I have been using them for months now and I love the results. You do have to use them regularly or the effects wear off in a short period of time. I couldn't believe they worked - it seemed too simple and silly but I am a huge fan now!
I also pull them off dry because like one of the other reviewers says, it works like a pore strip. I do not have particularly sensitive skin though, so if you do you should definitely dampen them before removing.

These are a great low-tech way to prevent furrows from getting worse or potentially preventing them (I don't know because I already had some light ones).

After anxiously waiting for this arrive in the mail, I haven't been using them as religiously as I should. At the ripe ol' age of 22, I have the so-called 'evil' line between the eyes-and I've had it for a few years now. Not terribly pronounced (yet) but very there. And I really haven't seen any difference, sadly. I will continue, in the hopes that something changes...
EDIT: Ok, so I'm converted. I find that my evil 'II's" are smoothed by morning when I use these, and just ordered my third box. A good 'quick fix.'
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Other Eyes: Green
hmm, i've known about this product for a long time, but not really taken it seriously. it's not terribly expensive though, and the one vertical line i have between my brows has been getting more pronounced lately (i'm 31 now and have had this line since i was 24), so i decided it was worth a try. was slightly worried i might react to the glue, because my skin is quite sensitive, but so far so good.
anyway: RESULTS! after one night, that evil line is already reduced and i just look so much nicer! (and more relaxed and less angry.)
the funny thing is, i even felt more relaxed wearing it.
will definitely keep using this.
as for removal: if you bother to read the instructions, it actually says to soak the patch before removing it. then it's not the least bit uncomfortable. don't bitch about that being painful if it's you who can't be bothered to use the product the way it's supposed to be used.
UPDATE: oh, ok i said some things about following the instructions and not ripping this off dry. however, i've found that if you do it also works like a pore strip...

I love the low-tech old fashioned look of these. I have little verticle lines at the corners of my mouth starting to show. I mostly wear these during the day when I'm home alone because I'm embarassed SO will laugh at me. I'm sure they'd work faster if I wore them all night. I think I'll start tonight, darn him. These do a great job, even if its just because they're keeping the little creases moist. If they feel too awkward in the beginning, maybe cut them a little smaller until you are used to them. This decreases the tension on your face. Always moisten them a lot before trying to remove, or else you will get a rash, the glue is strong. These are classic, they've been around forever because they work.

I swapped out one of my products for a box of unused Frownies. These were the ones for crows feet and nose to mouth. Unfortunately, I found these too time consuming and used for two weeks. This is a ritual that requires consistency to see any results. There are about 110 Frownies left in the box! I started drinking seven to eight 8oz liquids a day and the crows feet have practically disappeared! There is something to drinking lots of water and good skin!

I'm a little embarassed to admit that I have purchased this, but I've really been stressing about the "11's" between my eyebrows, (causing even deeper wrinkles), so I thought I would give this a try. I found it cheapest at drugstore.com since I was a first time buyer and if you spend $25 or more, you get free shipping, for $12.95 a box.
It seems to make sense to "splint" your face as I am an OT and know the importance of splinting a extremity to help it heal. That is basically what Frownies does. So I just put my Ice Elements Edelweiss Serum instead of Frownies Spray Activator on the backing and apply it per directions.
First of all, it does seem a little uncomfortable at first, but I have gotten used to it especially after the difference I have noticed after just a weeks worth of wearing it! I am amazed at how much smoother those "11's" are and it even feels smoother underneath the skin. I think it will be definitely repurchasing with the results I am seeing so far. I will update if it all ends up being in my head...
FYI, I haven't noticed any breakouts which is surprising since I just knew the vegetable-based glue would surely have a negative effect, and as far as the pain some have mentioned in taking it off, it helps to moisten the paper before you take it off and it does not hurt at all that way.
Give it a try!

I love this product. I don't use this every night, I use it about 3x a week. Nevertheless, it has become a staple in my skincare regimen.
I also used it on my boyfriend who has blond hair/blue eyes and loves to sit out on the sun/ falls asleep for hours on the beach, in the hot sun. He is also very expressive, so he moves his face a lot. Needless to say, he was looking much older than 25! I put the frownies on him one night and they made a huge difference. Even he saw it!
You need to buy this product. I also exfoliate regularly with glycolic acid, and use Resolution by Lancome, as well as St. Ives apricot scrub and Anthelios XL SPF 60 total sun block.
I hope my review helps!

I bought these after reading the reviews here and at another website. I am thoroughly impressed! It's not instant, but if used consistently, they DO WORK! I have noticed a vast improvement of the lines on my forehead and between my eyes. If you moisten them to remove them, they come off quite easily and with no irritation. Well worth the money in my opinion, and especially because it is non invasive with no side effects. I will purchase these again.

Age: 56 & Over Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I am 56 and have been using Frownies on my forehead for a long long time. I had tried Botox too (twice) but it wore off very quickly. I have very strong currugator muscles! Since I have tried both, I can tell you that the Frownies do work. But not nearly as well as Botox. (Duh!) However, I am happy with the tradeoff. The result you get from Frownies builds over time. For the first several months the lines would return soon after I took off the Frownie in the morning. Over time, the muscles have really learned to relax. I plan to keep using them and maybe even try using them when I am alone in my studio as well as at night.

I can't believe these work--but I love them! I'm 30 and not ready to try harsher and costlier skin rejuvenation methods, but I have these dreadful brow furrows that make me look exhausted and cranky on the best of days. After using them faithfully for a month, Frownies really reduced the lines of evil between my eyebrows. Love love love these things! Update 6/11/09: Yeah these work as long as you're young--stops me from furrowing my brow in my sleep. But I'm predisposed to those dreaded 11s between my brows and Frownies haven't stopped them from forming--I'm 33, I've been using Frownies faithfully for three years. I will keep using them for the 8 hours I don't furrow my brow at night. Just don't expect a miracle. Or Botox.

Blech! Icky! Two simple words for a similarily simple product. I was potentially excited about trying this product after seeing it in the store and reading the reviews. I purchased the ones for corners of the eyes and mouth. I am 29 years old and realized that many of my wrinkles are actually due to creases from the way I sleep with my face on my pillow. I thought this product would help but to no avail. The pieces were very uncomfortable to wear while sleeping and pinched me all night long. I tried them for a couple of weeks but could not get used to it. And while the creases I was trying to "fix" did look a bit better for a while, I developed new creases at the edges of the pieces where my face crimpled up. This product is just a gimmick at best.

Frownies work and work very well, but you have to give them time: this is not an overnight miracle sort of product. I had a terrible "number eleven", but after a couple of weeks of using Frownies every night, the furrows were greatly reduced.
One thing to keep in mind if you do decide to try them: the first time you wear them and remove them, they will pull out the fine hairs on your skin. It hurts a bit, and may irritate your skin temporarily. All in all, this is a price worth paying considering the results you get.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel

I'm 28 & started noticing lines around my left side (eye and mouth) a couple of years ago. I realized that it was from sleeping on that side. I have since been using the frownies on that side and lines are gone! They do look silly & my boyfriend can't help but laugh. If this was a *new* relationship.. no way I would wear these around him.
