Just so you know, the price of the Ageless programme will be going up considerably on 13th September. They will return to their previous prices, which means a very steep price rise. There'll be a week's amnesty for eds members after that, but the basic prices will be going up for good!

just seen the new Ageless prices and they are ridiculous! How can it almost double in price overnight? I an a fan of Ageless and used it for over 3 yrs. I would've bought hotspots because i hav liked the exercises but cant afford it until next month when the price will be much higher. They pressure ppl into buying something they can't afford. Also they expect ppl to pay £250 for a lesson,do they think we are millionaires or dumb to pay that

I still think it's a great deal, and if I didn't already have the program, I would pay the new price for it. When you compare it to the prices of other programs (that don't work as well) it's still quite competitive.

My humble opinion, anyway. What's that commercial say? "I'm worth it."

Wanted to add to my post but edit time had expired:

Here are the costs for three of the major programs including Ageless:

Ageless If You Dare - Book is $29.00, DVD is $27.00 - $56.00 total

Carolyn's Facial Fitness - Value pack, which includes DVD and pacing CD, is $39.95

Full kit includes the above and flash cards, workbook, mirror and free skin care products - $67.95

Flex Effect - $119.95 - includes DVD, book, CD and training log. They also have a support forum staffed by trainers that many find valuable.

So you see the pricing is certainly competitive.

These excercises are so cool. I know it takes a while to see real improvement but my face and neck are firmer already and when i put on face cream and makeup, i need less of both and am applying it sparely with better results. i do them everyday with the massage and started face brushing everyday with an old clean boar bristle hairbrush. i'm not sure it's ok to use a hairbrush on my face but so far it doesn't seem to be doing any harm. i know i'm supposed to take a break but i feel so much better when i do them. my question, does anyone know of a technique to firm up sagging earlobes?

I've been looking for a suitable brush myself. I'm not up to paying $40 for a face brush! I did find one on Amazon that is for the body and it seems okay.

If the brush you're using on your face isn't irritating you, and your skin feels invigorated after you use it, I don't see the harm! I know zero about skin brushing though so someone else might want to chime in!

Googled "sagging earlobes" for you - and this video looked interesting:

http://www.the33tv.com/about/station/newsteam/kdaf-earlobe-rejuvenation-story,0,4743367.story

I've never heard of an exercise for the earlobes. Sorry hon!

thanks so much immocolata. i'll check it out. The closest i could come to some kind of excercise for the earlobes was on carolyns site, but you must purchase the entire course. there is a website that has massages for the face and scalp written by eve frasier and in particular there is one for the ears to give a glow to the face. i think it might work to stimulate collagen and cause some thickening and reduce sagging. can't hurt to try. the ageless crush excercise, does it mean not to do it if you have a gaunt looking face? i've been skipping it because i want a fuller face.

Hi Daler,
The DVD has all the exercises in a tutorial section and then real time 5 minute workouts to follow along with.

The book offers explanations about how and why the program works, gives guidance for how to assess the condition of your face, recognise when you could do with a rest and understand some of the stages your face will go through. 30 day does have one or two different exercises, but they aren't at all essential.

Regards, Ageless Steve

Do you mean the bit where it joins the face? I have heard that Tom Hagartys ear wiggle (which I am STILL yet to master!) can help with that

Something I've noticed; I now see why some people think that facial exercise causes wrinkles.

I don't think that it does - maybe some people experience wrinkles, but I believe that many are mistaking what they are seeing. This has been my experience:

About a month into the exercises, I noticed that as my cheeks were lifting, there was a fan of tiny lines that formed where the build was happening. I wish I could explain it better. They disappeared after a week of doing the exercises - I do the full routine 3 times a week.

However, as the cheek has lifted more in the second month, I notice a second tiny fan of lines, higher up. Based on last month's experience, I am looking forward to seeing these disappear too!

So I think that as the face changes shape, the skin takes just a little time to catch up.

I love aging in reverse! Smile

Want to add also that I love the Crush exercise - I've always had plump cheeks (before they fell down around my jaw, lol) and craved those chiseled cheeks that you saw on Glamour and Vogue models! Now my cheeks have a definite "cut" look - nice definition that gives my face a prettier, more contoured shape. Thanks Lou Lou!

Each to their own, of course - but for me Carolyn's Facial Fitness has been worth every penny. I'm 67 and have been doing it for nearly four years. However, I'm glad for anyone who's had success with any other program, Ageless or otherwise.

I believe that any one of these programs can change your face for the better. I chose Ageless after careful review of all of them. It proved to be the best program for me, but I don't want to bash other people's programs. Different people need different solutions. Some have had great results with Carolyn's Facial Fitness.

It might not be for some people - some people want more (or less) from a program. I wanted results in as little time as possible. I read up on facial exercise, and checked out what videos and sample exercises were available from the different programs. I had a copy of the Ageless wmv on a computer that I had bought second hand and had looked at it, but dismissed it at the time. After reading all the positive reviews when I was searching for a solution to my sagging cheeks and chin, I dug out the old laptop and watched the video again, and started doing the exercises. I knew immediately that they were working my face; I felt the burn, I guess you'd say. After a couple of weeks I knew I was onto something. Smile

Immacolata , it's so wonderful, and also fascinating, to read your post. You've clearly bonded with your face and are enjoying it. When I read your post I feel so proud to know that you are embracing the Ageless programme, and so appreciative of the generous way you share your experiences. Thanks for your insights too.. I hadn't thought much about temporary little lines, but you are spot on!
Deeply appreciative
Loulou

Thank YOU dear Lou Lou! I do confess to having "bonded" - I'll catch myself turning my face this way and that when I put makeup on, looking for new differences.

I've got the perfect before photo, courtesy of the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. I am going to take a progress photo at 6 months, but I'm not sure that I'll post it - I'm a little wary of posting them at this point. People can be cruel. Sad

But I have Photoshop, and used a bare illustration of a face to draw on and show you what I mean:

Image 1 shows the NL lines. Fortunately, they are not THAT bad. Just using the pen tool in Photoshop.

Image

Image 2 shows that the NL lines have curved up. They are very much improved at this point - they look bad in the illustration, but you can really tell the difference. They're less folded, if that makes any sense. I've also drawn the little fan of lines on either cheek. In the illustration they look noticeable, but they are not unless you're up close to the mirror. They only appear when I smile or scrunch my nose.
Image

Another change that I've noticed. I would not have noticed how much my upper lip has firmed up and lifted, but I have a small v-shaped hairline scar on my upper lip from an accident years ago. It looked like this - it was off to the side of my nose and close to the lip itself:

Image

It has moved noticeably up and in, under my nose and higher up on the lip, thus:

Image

Sorry for the quality of the scribbles, but I think you get the picture.

thanks puddlelover for the link to tom haggerty's site. i don't think i can manage it either. i didn't describe my earlobe problem right, i meant the earlobe where you put on earrings. mine are very thin and delicate and look like they are sagging, and i want to thicken them up if possible. actually i think lou lou's neck excercise plus massaging the ears is helping a little. just want to share, playtex disposable gloves work too besides tissue or cotton gloves to grip the skin.

Wow Immacolata, that's wonderful info! I'm glad Ageless is working for you... I think another factor in your progress is that you have such an upbeat and positive nature that shines out of your posts. You're the kind of person whose face springs to life as soon as the muscles get attention. Once you enjoy your face it lifts and brightens overnight.

It's good to have your detailed analysis of your face to show precisely where you're seeing a difference. It's helpful to illustrate exactly what happens (and your changes are almost textbook examples of progress). And I'm very happy, because it's great to see you're succeeding, and fab that you've told everyone else about it too!

Hi pinkiebrie (love your name btw).

As you've spotted, you should be able to thicken them up by rubbing them and rolling them between your fingers. Would be great if you could report your findings. Thanks for the info.

If you would,how does the Long Neck exercise help...Do you move your ears when you do it?

I am about half way into the 30 day programme. I have been doing Ageless off and on - not too consistantly enough - for about a year. I started the 30 day programme to boost things and give me motivation to be more consistant with the programme.
And a boost it really is. The corners of my mouth are turning back up, my n/l's apparently shrink like mad from the smile wheel ex and are more 'rounded' no longer depressingly straight down. Things are really moving now, the 30 day programme is doing more boosting than I expected!

Hi Loulou or steve....

I have the original book but I now want to purchase the 30 day ebook, I tried doing it on the website but the only actual way to pay for it is paypal.

The problem is my paypal is messed up. Do you accept any other methods of payment?

Thanks
