Give your face a lift at home with Roloxin

For most people a surgical facelift is a) too much money or b) too scary.  But a new topical mask called Roloxin can give your face a lift, reduce wrinkles and reduce pores without  you having to go under the knife.


All you have to do is rub the packette to activate the product and then smooth it all over a clean face. You can put it right up to the lash line (unlike most masks). It smells like cake *bonus* and did not irritate my sensitive skin. After a couple of minutes the mask will start to firm up. After 10 minutes, you wash it off and apply a moisturizer. My favorite is the time-tested, hyaluronic acid filled Olay Regenerist. I did feel like my skin is firmer and my lines look smaller.

Given the cost, I would probably just use this for a special event. I did find a link on Facebook (which I used) where you can get two treatments free, otherwise the cost is $110 for 10 packettes.
