Directions

Frownies Facial Patches should always be applied to clean, dry, skin. After washing your face and applying your skincare, give the skincare time to absorb into the skin. You will then be ready to apply your Frownies.

When you open your box of Facial Patches for the corner of the eyes and the corner of the mouth you will find long strips of paper patches that are perforated into a butterfly shape and a diamond shape. We recommend you tear the patches along the perforations to separate them into the smaller shapes.

Once the Facial Patches are separated, you will notice there is a shiny side and a matte side. Spray the shiny side of the patches with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator (or use warm water if you do not have our Rose Water). Use your finger to spread the water around on the back of the patch to be sure you are wetting all of the adhesive.

Once you have sprayed the patch, set it down on your countertop to give the adhesive a moment to get tacky. Proceed to spray several more patches and set them down. You will start to notice the patches beginning to curl as the adhesive is getting tacky; this is a signal that your Frownies are ready to be applied to the face.

Gently massage the area where you will be placing your Frownies. Hold the skin smooth with your fingers (do not pull on the skin), apply one patch at a time, overlapping the patches as you go.

Once you apply the patches, continue to press on them until they adhere to the skin. It helps to hold them down for about 15-20 seconds once you have them on. You can use either the diamond shape or the butterfly shape for around the eyes or mouth depending on what fits best for your needs.

Around the eyes it is very important that you apply the patches outside the occipital bone (the eye socket). You never want to apply the Frownies Patches up close next to the eye. The skin around the eye is very delicate. If you desire to smooth fine lines around the eyes you will want to use the Frownies Under Eye Gels or Frownies Apple Stem Cell Serum.

When it comes to smoothing lines around the mouth you need to understand that Frownies Facial Patches can only smooth static lines caused by tension in the facial muscles. Frownies will not tighten loose skin, or lift sagging skin. If your lines are due to a loss of volume in your face, or a loss of elasticity in the skin Frownies Facial Patches won't be effective.

It is also important to note that the most dramatic results can be achieved on the forehead wrinkle lines whereas around the mouth the results will be more subtle. This is because smiling creates smile lines and we don't recommend you live your life without smiling!

If you are struggling with the Frownie Patches peeling around the mouth we recommend overlapping a second patch going up the side of your cheek to anchor the first patch next to the mouth. This also helps prevent the skin from folding over the edge of the Frownie patch.

Wear your Frownies Patches every single night for the first 30 days to begin to build some muscle memory and retrain the muscles to relax. After the first 30 days you can reevaluate and decide if you need to continue wearing them nightly or if you are able to wear them less often (a few nights a week). It will be different for everyone depending on how expressive you are, how deep your lines were to start, skin type, and age.

When you remove the Frownies in the morning we recommend using a lot of warm water and gently sliding your fingers under the patches as you splash them with water. Be patient, go slowly, and be gentle with removal. If you are someone who showers in the morning you can get in the shower with them on and the warm water and steam will help dissolve the adhesive.

If you like to work out in the morning we have a lot of customers who leave their Frownies on during their workout and sweat them off!

If you ever have questions or struggle with application or removal feel free to contact us. We are very active on social media and sending us a message on facebook or instagram will help us get you the fastest response as well as helpful videos and tips!

What are Frownies Facial Patches?

Frownies Facial Patches are a non-invasive wrinkle reducing patches worn while you sleep or for a minimum of three hours. Frownies act to form a cast for the facial muscles, holding them flat, preventing expressions that cause wrinkles, and helping to release tension, smoothing existing lines.

Frownies Patches For The Corners of The Eyes and Mouth are used for the crows feet and smile line area. Frownies wrinkle patches smooth static lines not dynamic lines....meaning, when you are smiling you may see dynamic smile lines because you are lifting the corners of the mouth. Frownies won't stop you from creating those lines. Frownies WILL help to smooth static lines that you see when the face is relaxed. Because of this it is important to remember that the most dramatic results will be seen on the forehead. Around the mouth and eyes sometimes we see wrinkles and lines because of a loss of elasticity in the skin, sagging skin, or a loss of volume in the face. Frownies Facial Patches cannot tighten loose skin.

Frownies Facial Patches have been safely used by women for over 130 years. Additionally, product safety testing has been conducted under the control of dermatologists, to ensure that Frownies are non irritant, and hypoallergenic.

Frownies Facial Patches are HRIPT tested: tested by a dermatologist, to be hypoallergenic, non-irritating and suitable for sensitive skin.

We have tested a variety of materials for our patches and paper is the safest and healthiest for the skin. Because silicone and latex are common allergens, Frownies patches and products are Latex and silicone free.

If you have concerns about the adhesive reacting with your skin or your skin​care, test the product or the products together on your forearm or wrist.

The adhesive sticks to the skin and does not absorb into the skin just like a Band-Aid or skin glue. The adhesive is water activated so it will release without any irritation to the skin when properly wet to remove. The essential oil in the adhesive is less than .001%.

Ingredients

Natural weighted unbleached Kraft paper, Nulomoline, Dextrin (from starch), Methyl Salicylate Wintergreen

FAQ

Q: Are the Frownies Original Facial Patches paper?

A: Yes. Paper allows the skin to breath; it does not suffocate skin cells as some plastics will.

Q: Will Frownies get rid of my crows feet?

A: Frownies Facial Patches can only smooth static lines. When you are smiling this lifts the cheeks and you see creases around the corners of the eyes. Frownies don't stop you from smiling so you will always be able to smile and create those "dynamic lines." However, the dynamic lines eventually imprint into the skin and form static lines: lines that you see even when your face is relaxed. These are the lines that the Frownies Facial Patches can target.

Q: Will Frownies Patches smooth my marionette lines?

A: Frownies Patches will not lift or tighten the skin. If you would like to send us a picture of the lines around your mouth before you make a purchase we are happy to give you our thoughts on what results you can realistically expect.

Q: Do I have to use Frownies Facial Patches every night?

A: We recommend using Frownies Facial Patches every night for 30 nights to begin seeing longer lasting results. After you have achieved the results you're looking for you can wear your Frownies less often. We recommend a minimum of three to four days a week in order to maintain proper facial posture. Fine lines may be smoothed in less than 30 nights and your application can be adjusted to suit your needs.

Q: Do Frownies Facial Patches really work?

A: We have been in the facial patches business since 1889 - over 130 years with guaranteed results. The Original Facial Patches have been mimicked by other brands but never duplicated in quality or effectiveness.

Q: Sometimes the Frownies leaves an imprint on my skin around the edges, what am I doing wrong?

A: We recommend covering the full forehead from eyebrows to hairline, and hairline to hairline side to side, overlapping the patches to minimize imprints around each patch. When you apply the patches be careful not to pull or over stretch the skin. After removing your patches apply Frownies Moisturizer or Skin Serum and the imprint will quickly fade.

Q: The Frownies are a little too large is it okay to cut it to a smaller size?

A: Yes. Trim the edges down to a size that is comfortable for you.

Q: Does the shiny backing peel off?

A: No. The shiny backing is a natural, dry, adhesive that is water activated. Simply moisten the shiny side with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray.

Q: I am having trouble making the patch stick what am I doing wrong?

A: Make sure you are applying the patch to freshly washed skin and all your skin care is fully absorbed. Frownies won't stick well on top of a thick, heavy night cream or face oil. The patch could also be a little too wet or not wet enough. If using the Rose Water Hydrator Spray, one or two pumps is sufficient. Spreading the liquid around with your finger is also helpful. Letting the wet patch sit for 15 seconds before applying it will help the adhesive get tacky before you place it on the skin.

Q: Can I use my night creams with Frownies?

A: Frownies Moisturizer is a perfect compliment to the patches because it absorbs quickly. If trying the patches with other creams or moisturizers make sure you allow at least 15 minutes absorption time before applying the patch.

Q: Can I use Frownies Facial Patches with "Retinol," "Tretinoin," and/or "Retin A" creams?

A: Frownies Facial Patches may be used with these products with caution. Retinol and Retin A creams have the potential to cause skin sensitivity and irritation. Do not use Frownies Facial Patches if your skin is already irritated or peeling. Consult your medical dermatologist for this question. Because less of the product will evaporate off the skin there is a possibility that the potency may be stronger when wearing Frownies.

Q: Will the ingredients in Frownies Facial Patches react with my other products?

A: Frownies Facial Patches do not contain "active" ingredients. However, if you suspect an issue we suggest testing the patch with the products in question on you forearm.

Q: What are the active ingredients in Frownies Facial Patches?

A: There are no active ingredients. The results are due to a muscular response to the Facial Patches. Working like a splint or a cast, Frownies holds the muscle in place, retraining the muscles to relax into their original smooth position.

Q: Do Frownies Facial Patches have to be used with the Rose Water Hydrator and Frownies Moisturizer for the Face and Neck in order to get results?

A: The overall results will be better when used with the recommended products; however you will still get great results using the Frownies Facial Patches by themselves.

Q: Can the Frownies Facial Patches be used on the neck?

A: Frownies Facial Patches are not designed for the neck area. We recommend using our Frownies Skin Serum with Vitamin E and Ceramides on the neck as well as our Frownies CHIN-UP Polypeptide Neck Mask or Frownies Moisturizer for Face and Neck Gel Cream.

Q: Can Frownies Facial Patches be used under my eyes?

A: NO! Frownies Facial Patches are not designed for the under eye area. We recommend using our Frownies Under Eye Gels, Frownies Apple Stem Cell Serum, and Frownies Eye Cream for the area under the eyes since it is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of the face.

Q: Are these products gluten free/vegan?

A: All Frownies products are vegan and made without gluten. However we have not gone through the process of being certified Gluten Free. Frownies products are made with natural plant based ingredients!

Q: What is the shelf life of the Frownies Facial Patches?

A: The Frownies Facial Patches will keep indefinitely as long as they are kept dry.

Q: Can I damage my skin from wearing Frownies Facial Patches too often?

A: Frownies Facial Patches are tested for safety and very gentle on the skin. Many customers have worn Frownies for decades without any negative effects. However, everyone's skin is different. You can tailor your use of Frownies to whatever works for your skin. It's possible that you may experience a temporary adjustment period if you have sensitive skin. Go slowly and give your skin time to get used to your new routine.

Q: What if the edges are peeling up?

A: There is no need to be concerned with the edges peeling up as long as the rest of the patch is secure on the skin. Go back and watch our application video for helpful tips and tricks!

Q: Can Frownies be used to tighten a saggy jaw line?

A: Frownies Facial Patches are not capable of tightening sagging skin or lifting sagging skin. Frownies are effective for relaxing facial tension and smoothing the facial muscles.

Q: Will you make a larger patch for the forehead so I don't have to piece them together?

A: Because the patches are made of paper a larger patch wouldn't contour to the roundness of the forehead. Using the smaller triangles to overlap and cover your forehead allows you to customize the Frownies to the size and shape of your Face. You will get better results using smaller patches rather than attempting to apply a larger strip of patches.
Our Forehead Serum Patch fits the entire forehead and is a nice compliment to the Frownies Original Facial Patches. It's great to wear after removing your Frownies in the morning.

Guarantee

We are so confident you will see results before the end of your first month of continuous use of our Facial Patches, that if your frown lines do not show any signs of improvement, we will refund purchase.

They are simple and they work

I've been wearing frownies for well over 25 years now. I just turned 50 this year and not a single person, young or old, never fails to be shocked by my age. I am a serious brow squinter and these have kept those eleven's at bay and have helped with those lines around the mouth that deepen with age.

Hi Marcia, thank you for your review! We're so happy to have such a loyal customer like you. Results from Frownies just get better with time and you're a true example of that!

Awesome products

I was very skeptical before buying the frownies for my deep 11’s and forehead lines but I can truly say, THEY ABSOLUTELY WORK! I’m hooked. I will continue to buy all these products. I’m going to get my 28 yr old some for her stocking this year! She doesn’t have wrinkles now but prevention is key. The prices are reasonable and very worth it to me. I tried Botox and I know it works for some people but it didn’t work for me. Even the dermatologist said my muscles are very tight in my forehead area so that could be the reason why. I’m hooked on frownies and I’m very grateful to have something that works.

Vicki, thanks so much for your review! We're so glad to hear you're enjoying the facial patches and that you're seeing such great results. So many people carry tension in their brows and don't even know it but it's a great feeling when Frownies can relieve it! We love the idea of Frownies as a stocking stuffer & hope your daughter will enjoy them just as much as you do!

Works amazing!!

I've been wearing the frownies 3-4 days a week for my forehead and nasolabial folds. It really works very well!! I'm 29 and have minimal wrinkles and sagging cheeks but the frownies are picking them up. Only thing is I have to remember to do my skincare routine earlier in the night to absorb into my skin before putting the frownies on and sometimes thats not possible. Also my boyfriend thinks its weird but I tell him to get over it and its cheaper then fillers.

Hi Sage, thank you for your review. We're so happy you're noticing results from the facial patches. For any nights when you have to do your skincare immediately before using your patches, you can cleanse & apply any quick-absorbing products, stick on the patches then add your heavier serums or creams around the patches as a shortcut! Hope that helps but if you have any questions or need more tips, feel free to message us on www.instagram.com/frownies or www.facebook.com/groups/frownies. We appreciate you!! - Frownies Customer Care

PS. Tell your boyfriend that guys can use Frownies, too!! :)
