At first, I just thought I was tempted to try Frownies® because they sounded like brownies. But that’s neither here nor there.
I tried the ones for my brow cleft and marionette lines.
I’ve had extremely deep marionette lines since I was a child. (Which might explain why I was always terrified at puppet shows, I think I thought they were going to kidnap me and take me to live amongst my people.)
This way Jenny.
So did they work?
Day one: I woke up and my brow furrow and the marionette line on the right side of my face (I only put it on one side to ensure scientific accuracy:) were both gone.
Woo Hoo. Celebrate good times. Come on. It’s a celebration.
Cut to an hour later, the lines are back and as deep as ever. But I’d made an oath to my puppet forefathers, to give it a whole month.
Cut to a month later. I asked the person I’m working with, if she can tell which side I was using the Frownies on. She ponders, points and says, “That side. The line is less deep.”
So there you have it.
I noticed a difference too and the effects now last all day (and I imagine wearing them is preventing the lines from getting deeper). It does seem like a gradual process though. And I’m not sure if the effects last long term if you stop using them, but it sure beats carrying around nuts in your cheeks.
The average rating for Frownies on Amazon.com ranges from 4 to 5 stars, so apparently we're either all extremely desperate or they do actually do something.
I imagine a Frownies' sweatshop in a third world country somewhere,
filled with 5-year-olds wielding scissors, craft paper and glue.
The kid who did this was fired for insubordination.
