Frown Line Patches Review

Frown Line Patches Review

It’s no secret that I’m on the slippery slope to 40, Lord knows I bang on about it enough on here. It’s not that I’m worried about growing old, quite the opposite, my thirties have been fabulous and I’m optimistic that my 40’s will be even better.

What I am trying my hardest to pause though, are the tell-tale signs that I was at times, ever so slightly, reckless in my teens and early twenties. Never once thinking that smoking would catch up on me. I kicked the deadly habit long ago and will happily lie to my children that I have never smoked. There’s no point denying my dishonesty, it does no one any favours, least of all my children, to know their mum was that kid who hid behind the shed on the school field (bike shelters were too obvious, we though we were being clever squeezing in behind a much smaller and glaringly obvious small white shed.) That’s the problem with being a Grammar school teenager, you think you know it all and some, the ego boost from passing the 11+, gave you grounds to think you’re one step ahead of the teachers who will be looking  in the most obvious place for underage smokers, which is behind the bike sheds and NOT by the large cloud of smoke coming from behind the white hut. Seriously, what were we thinking?

Anyway I digress, you get it, I smoked, I lied about it and now I have wrinkles.

The other great misconception of youth is that you will never need suncream or hats. Suncream’s for people with red hair and freckles. What you should do is sit out in the sun with a bare face and good slathering of baby oil, so you’ll look a bronzed, beach bum for the whole school summer holidays.


Years of sun abuse and lack of hat wearing and squinting at computer screens and books because I can’t find my glasses have left me with two lovely frown lines in between my eyes. So when an opportunity comes along to try out some frown line patches, my vain, 39 year old self thought go for it. A month’s supply of Realine Beauty Frown line patches cost Β£28 which is quite reasonable and for a needle phoebe like my self, Botox is completely out of the question. There’s no danger of a dodgy outcome with the patches as they’re completely natural it works through wearing the patch, the forehead skin is restricted from movement and the skin area “re-educated”. This gives a smoothed and relaxed appearance which is retained after the patch has been removed.

Realise Beauty Frown line patches review and giveaway by mum in a nutshell

I have been testing these out for a week now, putting the patch on before I go to bed, I’ve even braved it and sat downstairs in the evening and no one’s noticed I’ve been wearing one. They don’t feel uncomfortable or disturbed my sleep at all and are latex free and hypoallergenic so haven’t reacted or left any trace of evidence. In fact, I was feeling a little wound up one evening and the patch, I swear, helped ease some tension as it relaxed my frown.

To apply it you simply smooth your frown line area with one hand and apply the patch with the other, it’s self adhesive so just stays in place until you remove it. I’ve had to reapply a couple times as I put it too high and it did’t loose any stickiness.

So how did it work on my frown lines?

Well pretty impressively if i’m honest. The 2 very obvious creases look a little less severe, there’s still faint tell tale signs but I’m not expecting to look 19 again just less ‘cross’ if you get my drift? The whole of my forehead looked slightly smoother too.

If you want to give the patches a go for yourself, you can win a month’s supply by entering the competition below. It’s open to UK residents over the age of 18. Prize is one box containing 30 patches.
