Face Lift Belt


From the website:



It's a fact of life and physics: as years go by, things have a tendency to droop as gravity takes its toll.

Our faces aren't an exception.

Still, there is an easy way to counter this, thanks to the La Vie Kogao Face Lift Belt.

The idea behind it is ingeniously simple.

Like a beach ball, you just blow in some air


and then attach it to your face: it's specially designed to fit the contours of any face with its adjustable Velcro straps.

After setting it up, you can then just watch TV or read or relax for a few minutes, and let the air pressure in the La Vie Kogao Face Lift Belt do its work.

Even 5 minutes a day are enough for a good stretch, making wrinkles subside and your face appear smaller and younger.

Features and Details:

• Size: 33.4" x 3.9"

• Fits all faces (adjustable Velcro strap)

• Instructions: Japanese (but easy to use)

• Materials: vinyl chloride resin inside/velvet outside



Green or Blue-Gray.


If I didn't know better I'd think it was a new style CPAP device.
