Brits, Kim K and Jen Aniston Go Crazy Over New "Alternative to Botox"

Let's be honest.  We all want to look younger.  If we could find the "fountain of youth" or "miracle cream," we'd try it, as long as it didn't cause death.  Apparently, thousands of British women have found such a thing - and US celebs are soaking the product up.

The buzz is about the Nip + Fab Frown Fix, a line-filler pen.  Nip + Fab claims the cream is clinically proven to reduce lines and wrinkles by up to 50%.  What is the miracle ingredient?  A substance called Grant X, a natural alternative to Botox.  This American-made formula created by New Jersey's Grant Industries was originally slated as a wrinkle filler like Juvederm.  But apparently, users found that the product had a lasting corrective effect when used over time.  Miracle, indeed, so they say.  At the very least, it is more affordable than the Juvederm average cost of $800.  Frown Fix sells for $16.55 per pen.

Nip + Fab Frown FixThe product recently launched in the UK and thousands of women (and bribed men) stood in line to get their hands on the "miracle cream." The Daily Mail spoke to a few of the eager customers outside Boots who eagerly wanted to believe the positive claims they have heard and read.

"I’d seen the reviews online and in the newspapers and knew it was one I had to try," said Sarah from London.  "It seems like everybody wants to get their hands on some."

Fellow Londoner Ben Thompson stood in the line amongst the throngs of women.  Clearly, he should have brought one of his single male friends to keep him company.  "I’ve been sent to the store to pick up this product for my wife and a couple of her friends, " said Ben, a truly brave fellow.          

Nip + Fab counts celeb clientele like Sienna Miller, Jennifer Aniston, and Kim Kardashian as enthusiastic users for their line.  Kim K. as future celeb spokesperson?  It may happen...

Have you tried this product? Does it seem worth the wait list, or another product for the product graveyard under the sink?

jen just look amazing and spectacular even with all those hardship relation years she had. And for Kim also was quite a bombshell knowing her past was somehow related to Paris Hilton.

They also have a cellulite and a bust fix. It all looks pretty interesting. I hope more of these products become accessible in the States.


I really want their Tummy Fix (since I don't have face lines yet). Not sure if it's worth having shipped over though... 

Sharon, next time you come visit the offices maybe I'll bribe you to bring me some ;)

Also, I'm not sure I'd wait in a line outside for any product that's out there ... unless someone offered a cream that made brussel sprouts taste like pizza. I'd camp out for that.


No face lines, yet?  Oh to be that young again...hahaha! 

I am planning on getting a truck load!  I consider the shipping a trade-off.  Have you seen the price of La Mer and SK-II?  It still ends up being less than those if you buy 3 with shipping!


Hey, leave my face lines alone! I'm only 27. ;)

La Mer is SOO expensive. I'm sure it's great, but I could never justify spending that much on skin cream. I'd give myself more wrinkles just agonizing over the price.


For $16.55 I'd certainly give it a try! Boots tends to choose good products too; they've even begun exporting their famous No7 skin care range to the U.S.
