This actually does help if you are willing to use this every night. I have some obvious RBF that I can’t get rid off before this but this helped to tame the whole angry look. The only thing I didn’t like was the smell. Once you wet it and stick it on, there is this smell of the glue which I didn’t particularly like.
I'm 28 and started developing frown lines from frowning when sleeping! I tried these and although they work to stretch the skin between the brows, new frown lines develop where the stickers end due to the glue sticking so tightly to the skin...so unfortunately was waking up with more frownies :(
Absolute rubbish product. Complete waste of time and money. Doesn’t work. Single use only for each patch. Might as well save money and put sticky tape on your forehead instead- would end up with the same (non existent) result.
I'm only 30 but have quite a deep frown line on my forehead. I've tried Botox which is great but £100 every 3/4 months is an expensive habit to develop, especially at my age! I realised that a lot of my frowning was happening in my sleep (even when having good dreams!) and I was waking up with a deep crease so I started looking into wrinkle patches.
I came across Frownies and decided to give them ago. First impression was that they look like fabric plasters and they’re quite big so you look pretty silly wearing them. It’s also a bit of a faff having to get them wet in order to stick them down (after smoothing out the area where the wrinkle is). These are effective at smoothing out wrinkles and preventing me from frowning in my sleep. I didn’t notice any adverse effects while using them and they stayed on all night.
However, I have since discovered Facial Smoothies (also on Amazon) and they are much better than Frownies: cheaper; self-adhesive; clear and smaller so barely noticeable; can be reused. I can’t think of any benefits of using Frownies over Facial Smoothies.
Wrinkle patches are never going to be as effective as Botox but they do stop you from frowning in your sleep and they make you more aware of your facial movements during the day. The smoothed out effect is obviously best when you first remove the patch but I've noticed that, overall, my frown line has been significantly reduced from using patches.

I do not go for gimmicks or things like this usually but I read a review in a magazine and then saw the reviews on here so decided to give them a try.
I am pretty impressed. I am 41 and have faint lines -they are not deep (yet), but they have just got to the stage of being always present. I’ve been using Frownies for a week now (every night from 9pm-6:30am) just on the 11s and I am seriously impressed. The line is still ‘just about there’ but it’s less noticeable than usual and it does last most of the day. I went out last night and put another Frownie on for 3hrs which helped even more. My friend, who is an intelligent woman, admitted she thought there genuinely was an improvement (she’s blunt and wouldn’t lie).
I slap a bit of E45 on my forehead, dampen a frownie and stick it on. Easy. I don’t think they smell too much. Bit like Savlon, perhaps?
In any case, any improvement that doesn’t involve poison, £250 price tag or the scalpel is a bonus for me.
I can’t see how these would work on a heavily lines face (perhaps they do) but as a preventative measure or on fine lines they seem to be doing what they claim.
Only thing that redresses the frowning at computer screen, sunshine, kids, co-workers etc lines. Don't forget to take them off before you walk the dog in the morning. People are always too polite to comment on the two large brown bits of paper stuck to your forehead, but they do notice.
As long as they are applied correctly (it took me a few gos to get this right. Look it up on YouTube and get it right first time!), they definitely work to reduce the lines on my forehead. Will continue to use.
