Competition: NIP + FAB Frown Fix

I'm rather aware that I'm knocking on a bit now, what with being the grand old age of 33. In addition, I'm a mother, wife and teacher. All of these things can lead to frowns occuring on a daily, possibly even hourly, basis! I've discovered that pushing my skin back down and trying to smooth down my eyebrow furrows doesn't really work, which I think is a bit inconsiderate.

So when I was approached to review the brand new NIP + FAB Frown Fix, I metaphorically bit the hand off of the kind soul offering. You may have seen NIP + FAB in the beauty pages of the national newspapers and glossy magazines. If you haven't then you've not been paying attention properly. The range of products is amazing, including a Tummy Fix and a Cellulite Fix, and is coveted by many a celebrity from Alexandra Burke through to Jennifer Aniston. To top it all off, they are launching the Frown Fix as we 'speak' so I feel a little bit special in having the opportunity to review it!

The Frown Fix which I have to try comes in a neat little tube, similar in size to a mascara so it can fit nicely in your make-up kit. One end opens up to show a little brush, the other twists to push the formula up. The description on the box says 'Frown fix is a concentrated formular designed to plump and smooth the appearance of expression lines, fine lines and wrinkles.' And hopefully my furrows caused by people who stress me out!

I followed the instructions to 'brush directly onto clean skin to target expression lines around eyes, forehead and mouth', although I didn't need it around the mouth (clearly I don't smile enough!). It is incredibly smooth, doesn't sting or feel tight (or any other unpleasant sensation) and just gently works subtly. The research indicates that 'the effects are instant (within a couple of minutes), but everyday use also results in a cumulative effect so lines become permanently more visible. Clinical tests on the active ingredient has shown a reduction in wrinkles of up to 50% over a 60 day period.'

I'd call it botox in a tube, but that sounds derogatory to Frown Fix as it doesn't render you incapable of showing expression. Don't even think of it as polyfilla. Consider it a magic wand to indicate that you are a young and carefree woman! It could just be your new BFF!

I am giving FIVE of you lucky individuals the chance to win a NIP + FAB Frown Fix (which retail for £10.25 each in Boots and Harvey Nichols don'cha know).

In order to be in with a chance of winning, please do all of the following things:

  1. Tell me in the comments box whether you are going to be using it fill the laughter or frown lines, and who causes them!
  2. 'Follow' NIP + FAB on twitter or 'like' on Facebook
  3. Tweet the following message:

"I've entered to win a @NipandFab Frown Fix on @TheBoyandMe's blog"

Please only leave one comment to tell me that you've done these things. You won't be getting more entries if you leave separate comments!


The competition will end on Monday 9th May 2011 at 8pm. I will draw five winners using and notify them by e-mail, I will need a reply by Wednesday 11th May 2011 at 8pm or I will redraw. Open to UK entrants only please.


I have been provided with a tube of Frown Fix for the purpose of this review, which is as always honest and my own opinion. No other reward was given.

    Thanks for this! Have followed on Twitter and tweeted. I've go a frown line between my eyebrows from making my 'concentrating face'. Now I've started blogging a bit more regularly and reading so many great blogs, it's got really deep! I would use the frown fix on that!

  2. says

    I'm entering. Just turned 30 and reeling from it…..!

    I shall be using it right in between my eyebrows, where years of frowning has caused a crease that my mean boy cousins lovingly referred to throughout my teens as my "Zambezi gorge" (a phrased coined while on holiday in Zimbabwe…. they tortured me!!!!!!)

    Thanks for the chance! x

    Frown lines! I went through a rough few years where people didn't except me for who I was. They gave me the frown lines that I want to cover up and forget about. I'd never want to cover up my laughter lines. They show my character and they remind me of the good times!

  51. Stuart O says

    Have a little go at both lots of lines I think, the frown lines have definitely been brought about by the pressures of coping with redundancies and money worries, lets hope it's sorted out soon.
