An interesting approach to benefiting the skin of the face, B&P Company offers these innovative Frownies face pads. Long story short, you pull the skin until it is taught and then slap on one of the pads, which should then stay in place for a few hours in order to bring out its maximum potential. It’s an all-natural alternative to standard skin creams and a much less painful process than going under the knife, but this of course all depends on whether or not it actually works. Think it’s worth giving Frownies a second look at least?
So, the question is, Will Frownies prove that getting rid of wrinkles and masking the signs of aging calls for something slightly different to a face cream, or are they barking up the wrong tree?
According to the makers of Frownies, these face pads have been on the market in one form or another for over 100 years – modern technology doesn’t even come into it. Not that this is a bad thing, as it’s the truly tried and tested approach that we all know to work best. So is this the case with Frownies? Well, there are no ingredients to speak of, no fad theories, and no weird and wonderful approaches to their application – it’s simply a case of attaching them to your face and allowing them to do their job. Which then leads on to the question of how exactly they perform when put to the test – what are people saying about Frownies?
Well, one of the biggest supposed benefits it how easy they are to use – it takes just a couple of seconds to put them in place, and they can then get to work for hours. The fact that they have been around for so long also serves as a benefit in the eyes of most – thousands have tried them and most speak fondly of them. In addition, the fact that Frownies don’t rely on any dangerous ingredients or chemicals to work means they’re extremely unlikely to trigger any allergic reactions. Last but not least, the highly affordable price tag rounds off the product’s real pluses.
As for the negative side of the equation, even after so many decades of use there is still no evidence of independent clinical trials verifying the effectiveness of Frownies. What’s more, the way they work in direct contact with the skin could lead to problems for those with sensitive skin. It’s also worth remembering that Frownies need to be left in place for several hours to have their best possible effect, which in turn means learning to sleep with them on or go about your daily business with them in place. On the whole therefore, it’s a pretty equal balance when you consider the real minuses.
As mentioned, there isn’t a list of ingredients for Frownies for the simple reason that it isn’t a skin care product in the traditional sense. As such, it’s safe to say that allergic reactions really don’t come into the equation.
There’s no real evidence to suggest that they will work any better than any other products already doing the rounds. You also have to be careful if you have sensitive skin. In fact if you do have sensitive skin, you should probably steer clear from these patches altogether. Also, be prepared to be uncomfortable while sleeping with them on, or embarrassed when sporting them during the day where someone might see you. All in all, we can not recommend Frownies as the product of choice, when there are so many better products out there that have been proven to work.
