I spent two and a half years doing these exercises religiously and there was no difference in my face at all. Waste of money. Big disappointment. Ok, so I was 59 when I started, so not a spring chicken but after two and a half years I would have expected to see some change. I did them exactly as Carolyn stated, with face cards and video but eventually I gave up. They might work for other people but sadly not for me. I will have to find a different regime which hopefully will give me more success.
