When Biobliss offered to send me their forehead patch that reminded me slightly of a Cyberwoman costume with a blinky light, how could I turn down the chance? But what exactly is a Biobliss Patch? And how well could something so scifi looking actually work?
According to the company:
Biobliss Patch operates using its proprietary ion technology, gently pushing dermatologist-approved anti-wrinkle ingredients to the surface of the skin. These well-known wrinkle-fighting ingredients, recognized for their ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, are able to diffuse into the surface of the skin much more rapidly as compared to creams, reducing the time to see results from weeks or months to just one hour.
So before we get into the details, let's take a look at my forehead lines before I used Biobliss. I have three main lines that are starting to become prominent. It's just been within the last month that I've had to make sure my makeup is set very well so my foundation doesn't crease. Ugh.
Here is how it works. You cleanse your forehead with their cleansing cloth to remove all of the oil from your head so the patch can stick. When your head is dry, you can gently peel the patch off of the plastic tray and affix it to your head. It's just sticky enough to stay on your head without moving or falling, but not enough to hurt when it's time to take it off.
You then press the power circle tab so the patch is activated. Now the proprietary ionic technology starts to push the ingredients held inside the patch deeply into your skin. Primarily the gel is made up of hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and acetyl hexapeptide, all known and tested wrinkle fighters. After a few minutes, if you press into the patch to make sure it is firmly attached, it feels warm to your fingers and cool on your head.
You then wear this surprisingly comfortable patch for no less than one hour and no more than two. It's no sweat to wear this while you do stuff around the house. It won't fall off. When your time is up (the green light stops blinking after 1 hour), you peel the patch off. Your forehead immediately looks dramatically different. Lines are reduced and the ability to squinch (my word) your forehead to recreate your lines is diminished. My forehead looks smooth, lines have been plumped and even Loxy said my forehead looked younger. Bethany, my stylist, even noticed how smooth my forehead was and commented on that specifically. Pretty amazing!

Right now, Biobliss is only available for the forehead, but new undereye patches are coming out quickly and I can't wait to try them. So what will a blinking, ionic powered forehead patch set you back to start? Less than $10! Check out a trial two pack for the cost of shipping and handling. After than, when you are hooked, the patches will cost you less than $25 for a once per week treatment.

The results last for as little as three days to as long as a week, depending on how you maintain your results. I am honestly blown away by how well these worked on my nascent forehead lines. This would be an amazing weekly treatment or the perfect treatment before an important event. You don't need injections or very expensive treatments to improve fine lines and wrinkles before a special event. This is seriously worth considering! If you have wacky reactions to band aids (the stuff that makes them sticky), or are allergic to Vitamin B, Hyaluronic Acid or Acetyl Hexapeptide*, then you should avoid these patches.
Check them out for yourself at Biobliss.com. They even work as a his-and-hers item. Loxy loved the results he got with his too! I can't wait for eye patches to come out. If there was a line to stand in overnight, potentially in semi-bad weather, I would totally do it for the eye patch versions of this.
*I know you are thinking topical Botox? Pahrump! Horsepucky! Because that is what I would have thought, and we are usually on the same page, right? Except that I TOTALLY noticed that I couldn't squinch my forehead nearly as much as I was previously doing after I had worn the Biobliss patch. And that lasted for a few days. I only discovered this was topical Botox after writing the ludicrous sentence, "allergic .....to Acetyl Hexapeptide" and could picture you giving me a look like, "how the Hades am I supposed to know what that is and if I'm allergic, you dork?" So I looked it up on a very scientific website (wikipedia) and discovered it's a new form of topical botox. And it works. So there. Avoid the needles and overdone inability to move. Try this instead.
