Botox results without actually using botox??

Since I've lost weight I've found my forehead creases and the "II" between my eyebrows don't smooth themselves out any more and apparently I'm cross or puzzled most of the day Sil has started getting very small amounts of botox which she loves (and she looks great) but I don't think I want to go that far. Are there any lotions or potions that have similar effects?

No suggestions but watching with interest smile. Although as I approach the big 4 0 I am starting to reassess my thoughts on Botox... Just no idea of how to go about finding someone reputable to give me a freshen up...

I've just bought some stuff made from synthetic snake venom.
It's pricey but cheaper than botox.
I don't know if it actually works though I'm only on day 2

These things don't work. How could they, really? If you could just buy something that effective it certainly would not be an over the counter product.

I bought a safetox and it works. Retail 300 but I picked one up for 60. It's a device that does massage your forehead muscles and allows the muscle at the back of the head to become more dominant. Totally works for me. Google it on essentialdayspa.com for more thorough reviews, before and after pics. I was highly sceptical bit gave it a go as I'm sure long term botox will be proven unsafe.

I know, Abbie, but I'm an eternal optimist fool. Seasonal, that sounds interesting, I'll look into it. And I love the idea of synthetic snake venom, for any reason, Ijust!!

If your SIL has been using small amounts of Botox and looks great, what's your reservation about using it? I don't like that frozen look but wouldn't be against using small amounts to look a bit fresher.

synthetic snake venom.... smile Are you sure it doesn't say 'oil'?

botox may not actually work for you, it doesn't for everyone.

no, no magic potions. We would have heard.

I'm liking apha hydrox souffle.

I used to have botox a few years ago but didn't like how it made me look so now use the alpha hydrox soufflé. It is a cream/lotion in a tube.

One more word on the safetox....It improved my horizontal lines so much I was able to grow out my fringe.
