And I include botox in that statement - anyone any tips they want to share. Mine are not horrendous but they are def getting there. Would consider baby botox maybe next year but not an option at the minute for various reasons - financial and am pregnant!

I tried everything only botox works. What is baby botox? MY consultant will give half a dose if you want but there is no weak version iirc. A fringe works too. Creams don't!

Ah I see it is the same botox they are just talking about the method of using it. My bloke is v conservative. I haven't had it for 6 months plus and I really feel haggard!

Botox is some scary shit. Why do that to yourself? :(

Oh I love botox and that was my treat after years of pregnancy/bf. My practitioner also conservative with it.

Otherwise all the usual, drink plenty of water and cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. I'm using the clarins facial oil at the moment and love it.

But yes big sunglasses help too Smile

I can't have a fringe. I have a short forehead. Not everyone can just get a fringe.

Fringe not as good as botox. And semi permanent lashes but not super long ones. I had both at the same time last summer and looked a lot younger Now have neither and look knackered!

Chum of mine had some botox for frown lines and she looks great - very natural and not at all plastic

Botox is the only thing, not when pg obv.

I had it for my 11s but it has also completely eliminated every line from my forehead - which I can still move btw.

I had it in Oct and it hasn't worn off yet.

I found it eliminated my number 11s and they never got as bad but the forehead horizontal lines do need re doing

I can't have a fringe either I look ridiculous!! I did try it and have only just grown the bugger out! I think it would be a justifiable investment! In the meantine - anyone have any make up tricks - i.e that kind of fill the lines so not as noticeable?
