Frownies are simple: You peel them off and put them on your face where you have expression lines. You basically glue cardboard onto your face to keep yourself from making expressions – thus eliminating expression lines.
The first time I tried Frownies, I didn’t do it right. Instead of removing expression lines, the edge of my Frownies left a mark on my face. (Bound to happen when sleep with cardboard glued to your face.) Those marks quickly went away within the day, but that got me thinking: What about the actual effect of Frownies? They should be the same. They keep you from furrowing your eyebrows and making expressions that will scrunch your skin together so your skin stays flat and straight. Just like how the marks on your face go away, the effects of Frownies probably will too.
I read this comment on Purse Forum: “Your lines seem gone when the Frownie first gets taken off in the morning. The lines return during the day. Over weeks and months I think the muscles relax and/or you learn not “clench” them when you focus your eyes or squint.”
Of course I can’t confirm that because I never actually got my Frownies to work. It is such a hassle to put it on correctly and to peel it off. Taking if off can be so painful sometimes. I can’t deal with these things long enough to see any real effect.
Bottom line: not worth it.
