Before the age of TikTok, the life of a beauty lover was all about trial and error. While celebrities and YouTube gurus would occasionally shout out brands, finding favorite products often came down to experimenting with gels and serums that did little to remedy problems they claimed to fix (or worse, cause serious breakouts). However, now with hundreds of average people sharing their beauty finds on social media, there's more info than ever on affordable solutions to deal with pesky skin issues. And the most buzzed about product of the last few weeks? Undoubtedly, the Frownies Facial Patches, which some users are even calling a Botox alternative (Buy It,$22, amazon.com).

"My frownies are one of my favorite purchases I've ever made in my entire life," said content creator @carolinetlord. "I used to have lines on my forehead, and now they're completely gone," she added. While the paper-thin patches may look like regular sheet masks, Frownies patches have one surprising feature that eliminates wrinkles; they stop your face from moving. After application, the adhesive patches firm, preventing skin from creasing and training facial muscles to stay in place. Sold in four shapes, these press-ons are designed to target lines on different areas of the face, including the forehead, under the eyes, around the lips, and on the sides of the mouth.

Better still, this non-invasive facial treatment is super easy to use. "It is supposed to look like three triangles across my forehead," demonstrated TikToker @literallylizzi, who tried out the patches on the lines forming above her eyebrow. After spraying the back of each patch with the Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray (Buy It, $39, amazon.com), she placed the triangular sheets in a row on her forehead and left them on overnight. In a second post the next morning, she lifted up the patches to reveal her "significantly reduced" forehead wrinkles — and she wasn't the only user to see crazy fast results.

"I have used this product for about 15 years and, yes, [it does] work," said one of the 9,000 five-star reviewers on Amazon, adding that they haven't noticed an increase in deep lines and wrinkles over time. "Oh how I wish I had started using these 10 years ago! The money I could have saved on botox!" added a 52-year-old shopper, who saw their frown lines almost disappear in just three days. Even one customer who was initially skeptical noted they were "astonished" by the before and after photos of their wrinkles after just one night. (Want more Botox-alternatives?

The Frownies Facial Patches are just that; whether you're aiming to prevent lines from forming or looking for a cost-effective alternative to needles, these TikTok-loved patches are worth a try.
