Botox is great! But the price, not so much. I am always looking for alternatives so when I saw this forehead smoothing kit, I had to try it out. The “Wrinkles Schminkles Forehead Smoothing Kit” is $30 and comes with two forehead patches, each good for 20-30 applications. There is also a men’s kit which I assume includes bigger patches?
How to use: Apply patch to a clean forehead before bed and sleep wearing it. In the morning, remove it and place it back in the plastic bag. The thick silicone patch works by preventing your forehead to wrinkle in the night and providing extra moisture to skin. The adhesive helps to hold it in place and life of the patches can be extended by using the brand’s cleaning solution.
The good: The patch is comfortable to wear at night but as the night wears on, it can slip a little. It does help to suppress wrinkles but not necessarily remove them. The patch is like anything, if you don’t religiously use it, you won’t see results. At $15 a month, it’s cheaper than Botox.
The bad: I wish it would have come with separate storage for each patch. When you open the bag to replace the first patch, the other one is exposed to the air and probably dries out faster. I also wish it adhered a little better. I was hoping it more like the SiO Beauty Chest Patch, a thick silicone (more like the blister band-aids) that totally adheres to the skin. I have also used Furlesse patches and Frownies (I may get a commission from this link). The Furlesse patches are a little too thin. Frownies are essentially craft paper with a vegetable based adhesive. They fit really snug and are supposed to “train” your muscles back to their original condition before wrinkles. If you can keep up with them (they are hard to remove and sometimes cause pimples) they work great!
Wrinkles Schminkles also sells patches for eyes, chest, lips, hands and the neck. They are an Australian company but you can find them at Macy’s, Amazon (I may get a commission from this link) and direct at wrinklesschminkles.com.
Serovital-hgh will be 50 percent off during ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty
In between hunting for eggs and enjoying Easter Brunch, you’ll want to head over to ULTA for a big sale on the hgh booster Serovital. On Sunday, April 1 Serovital hgh will be priced at $49.50 for a 30 day supply instead of the regular $99 retail price. This is the best deal I have seen on the product since I started using it in 2013. The ad does specify any limits on purchase, so if you really love it I would get as many as you can. All ULTA deals are usually available on the website as well – her is the link.
Serovital is supposed to naturally boost your body’s own hgh levels that dip with age. The boost gives you more energy, improves sleep, skin and mood. You can read my review here.
I am always looking for alternatives to my favorite hgh boosting supplement, SeroVital. This powder by Optimum Nutrition is equivalent to half of the effective ingredients the BCAA or Branched Chain Amino Acids. It contains a mix of amino acids and 160 mg of caffeine from natural sources (see below).
You mix it with water and can consume it once daily or prior to workouts. It is formulated to give you more energy, improve focus and help you recover faster from workouts.
I used it for a couple of weeks and I liked the fact that it helped me workout longer without feeling as tired. As for building more muscle, I’m not sure if it made a difference. It can make your heart race a little if you are sensitive to caffeine. I had to STOP using it because something in it messed up my digestive system (I won’t give you the gory details). I was dairy free and I had to go back to eating probiotic yogurt to get back to normal.
So suffice to say, I won’t be consuming this anymore. I wouldn’t discourage others from trying it. It comes in 16 flavors and is priced at about $19 for 30 servings and $35 for a 65 serving container. You can find it online at Amazon (I may get a commission from this link), Allstar Health and many other health stores.
Serovital (AKA Serovital-hgh) is now available at everyone’s favorite e-tailer, Amazon.com. I tried this product when it first came out and love it (see my review here). It has been kind of hard to buy – only available at ULTA, Costco and the brand site. Now you can buy it through the Serovital company via Amazon (I may get a commission if you use this link)for $122.48 including shipping for a 40 day supply. A 30 day supply is $99 at retailers and the website. I am going to try to use Alexa to buy it next time!
You’re throwing back some of the last morsels from New Year’s Eve, the diet and gym commercials are in full swing and you’re already mentally cataloging your diet for the next month. One of the best ways to help your body off the rails is by taking a supplement. My favorite of all time is SeroVital, a combination of amino acids that helps you shed fat, increase muscle and reduce wrinkles (Yay!). It doesn’t have Hgh in it, but the amino acid blend helps boost your own natural hgh levels. The only negative is the price – $99 for a 30 day supply. Costco members can get a 40 day supply for $99 and you occasionally catch it on sale at ULTA. Kohl’s also carries it- coupons don’t work but you can earn Kohl’s cash.
But I have a workaround – a similar product called Ageless Foundation UltraMax Gold Powder (I may get a commission from this link). You dissolve it in a glass of water and take it before bed, five days on, two days off. It costs a lot less than SeroVital, around $50 a month. My review is right here. Right now the best price on a 30 day supply of Ageless Foundation Powder is at AllStarHealth.com (affiliate link), $35.99 plus $5.95 for shipping. Go for the basic shipping – I usually get in within a couple days whether I’m in Las Vegas or Maryland.
