Forehead & Between Eyes Wrinkle Patches (144 patches)

Frownies Facial Patches, designed to reduce forehead wrinkles and fine lines, act as a splint or cast, limiting facial muscle movement and enabling the smoothing of wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes called elevens.

Corners of Eyes & Mouth Wrinkle Patches (144 patches)

Frownies wrinkle patches also target lines around the corners of the mouth and eyes. Frownies work by splinting the facial muscles, holding them smooth and thus lifting the lines. 

Using Frownies products consistently, every single day, is key to seeing results.

The patches can be placed on the face anywhere the skin and the muscle are attached, not under the eyes or on the eyelid because the muscles there are not attached to the surface skin.  Smile lines take the most commitment because you are recreating the line all the time.  

Rose Water Hydrator Spray (2 oz)

What is Frownies Organic Rose Water Spray?

Our Rose Water Hydrator Spray is an organic skincare solution designed to deliver optimal hydration and vital nutrients to your skin, packaged in a convenient and sustainable spray bottle measuring 2 fl oz (59ml). The formula uses rose water, Rosa Damascena hydrosol, which is renowned for its ability to help maintain the skin's pH balance and control excess oil with a calming and soothing touch.

Our rose water mist is commonly used alongside our facial patches for more effective and longer-lasting applications. Of course, it works beyond our wrinkle patches as a rose water toner, makeup setting spray, or refreshing facial mist. Infused with rose water, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and more, it offers a variety of skin benefits as a simple addition to your daily routine. Its gentle formulation and versatility make it ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin and acne-prone skin.

What are Frownies Facial Patches?

Frownies are patches made from weighted kraft paper and vegetable-starch, water-activated adhesive designed to act as a splint or cast, limiting facial movement to soften static lines created by repeated facial expressions.  

Customize your Frownies application with our Starter Kit --offering a variety of shapes of Frownies including Facial Patches for the Forehead & Between the Eyes and Facial Patches for the Corners of the Eyes and Mouth and your choice of Rose Water Hydrator or our new Calming Toner.

We recommend everyone start by wearing Frownies Facial Patches for 30 consecutive nights while you sleep. Consistent use leads to longer-lasting results.

Elevating Your Frownies Facial Patches

Either our Rose Water Hydrator or new Calming Toner can be used to activate the adhesive on your Frownies, providing hydrating and soothing ingredients beneath the facial patches.

Both mists contain hydrating and skin-soothing ingredients of sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) and aloe vera. The Calming Toner boasts witch hazel for its astringent, pore-minimizing properties, while the Rose Water Hydrator highlights organic rose hydrosol.

Rose Water Hydrator vs. Calming Toner

How do you know which option is right for you?

If you prefer the uplifting scent of rose, you will love our Rose Water Hydrator Spray with organic rose water hydrosol and rose essential oil. If you have sensitive or reactive skin, you may prefer our new Calming Toner with soothing ingredients such aloe and chamomile.

Both options of mist can be used interchangeably as a hydrating mist, as a toner in your complete skincare routine, and to activate the adhesive on your Frownies Facial Patches.

Frownies application tips for best results!

1. Always wet, then wait.
Moisten the shiny side of the Frownies, then wait for them to begin to curl and become tacky, up to 90 seconds.

2. Always overlap.
The goal is to create a stiff hard cast to holds the muscles smooth, releasing tension limiting the contraction of muscles.

3. Cover the full forehead.
Just like a cast on a broken wrist, the whole area needs to be covered, even if you're targeting specific static line.

    How to apply for best results

    1. Gently separate Frownies® Facial Patches by tearing or cutting along the perforations.
    2. Cleanse your face and apply your skincare. If using a moisturizer, allow it to fully absorb into your skin before proceeding. Note: Frownies Face and Neck Moisturizer is recommended but not required. It is formulated for quick absorption and pairs perfectly with Frownies Facial Patches.
    3. Moisten the shiny side of the Frownies with warm water or our Rose Water Hydrator or Calming Toner. We recommend wetting all of the Frownies that you plan to use at once, then waiting for them to become tacky, up to 90 seconds.
    4. Once the patches are tacky and begin to curl, gently spread and hold the skin smooth while applying the Frownies across the entire forehead, overlapping them to create a cast over the entire muscle.
    5. For best results, wear the Frownies overnight or for a minimum of 3 hours. Continue using them daily until you achieve the desired results. Full skin cell turnover may take up to 12 weeks.
    6. To remove, thoroughly soak the patches with warm water to dissolve the adhesive. Then gently slide your fingers under the patches to lift them off your skin.

    Maintenance Tip: After achieving your desired results, maintain your smooth skin by using Frownies as needed. A good practice is to check for lines in the mirror each night and apply Frownies if lines are visible.

    Understand the details

    What are Frownies Facial Patches for the forehead and between eyes wrinkles?

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

    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 moistened to remove.

    You ask and we answer FAQ'S

    Q: Are Frownies Facial Patches paper?

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

    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: Frownies is The Original Wrinkle Patch, and we have been in the facial patches business since 1889 -- over 130 years -- with guaranteed results. Frownies have been mimicked by other brands but never duplicated in quality or effectiveness.

    Q: Sometimes the Frownies pathes leave an imprint on my skin around the edges, why is that?

    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.
