REAL FACE LIFT IN A DVD

"This is a great product. Scared of plastic surgery? Can't afford plastic surgery? Don't want to look like Michael Jackson or wind up with grotesque fish lips?
Then this is absolutely your answer. Very professionally done. eight years ago I had a different facercise video, the woman who designed facercise did the video, it looked kinda home made and it made me look better than I'd looked in twenty years. Killed the double chin, tightened the jowls away, opened up my eyes.... it was very effective. Friends who saw me a month after I started were asking me what I'd done, had I gotten a little work done or what! :))
Now this one has beautiful girls and when I'm done, i get that wonderful slightly sore muscles feeling all over my face and neck that tells me this is working just as well as the other one did. And this one shows computer graphics of which muscles you're working out and what happens to your face if you don't work those specific muscles. Ouuue. Scary and true too.
So before you go under the knife, give this a shot for a month or three.... you may decide you NEVER needed a face lift, all your face needed was a good, easy, quick exercise program like this one.
Least that's what I decided. :))"

"As the other reviews attest, most users of the Tal Reinhart Facial Workout DVD will be women anxious to avoid plastic surgery (or reluctant or unwilling to consider it). Facial musculature, and its slippage over time however, is identical for both sexes and few males can deny that if we're fortunate enough to last to "a certain age" (49 in my case) we could most likely benefit from this sort of a program.
And the good news for us aging XY's is that if you can overcome your "hell no I won't ask for directions" stubbornness, this program can REALLY do you some good. Tal Reinhart is not my first facial exercise guide; I've also done Carole Maggio and a couple other books, and those ARE helpful. Nevertheless I would recommend this as the place to start. First because VIDEO is by far the best way to learn these exercises. Although I do the Carole Maggio workout faithfully I am never 100% sure I'm doing everything correctly. Even the best descriptions and still photos can't demonstrate a facial move as well as video can. Second because Tal Reinhart is VERY well organized and presented. First time viewers can learn the individual exercises, practice them in isolation, then (quickly) advance to the full workout, offered without interruption at the end of the DVD. This is an EXCELLENT way to organize the material and demonstrates considerable foresight on the part of the producers to optimize our use of this material.
The first part of Tal Reinhart focuses on each individual exercise, explaining not only the technique but also showing via computer graphics how age and neglect cause facial muscles to sag. It's a horror show indeed! House of Wax part 2! See once-supple faces turn into cranky grandmothers before your eyes! More than anything else these visuals reinforce why facial exercise is IMPORTANT to personal self-confidence and general ongoing maintenance. Indeed, if you're reading this, you are most likely getting much of that motivation already from your own saggy visage staring uncomfortably back at you every morning from the bathroom mirror.
In addition to these eye-opening graphics (yes-intentional pun), the demonstrations are very slickly done and reasonably easy to follow. It sure doesn't hurt that the individual exercise demos are split between three gorgeous young Israeli models (actually the entire production is from Israel) whose faces are alabaster perfection to begin with. But who can fault the producers for using the beauty to which we aspire to motivate us? All three ladies are well experienced in the exercises they are demonstrating and as indicated earlier are easy to follow along with.
But the critical question is of course does it work? My short answer is YES however I must qualify that response by adding that I am continuing with much of the Carole Maggio workout alongside this one so it's impossible to say where one leaves off and the other begins. The eye & upper face exercises are MUCH more comprehensible in Reinhart than Carole's books so anything above the nose I credit to Reinhart.
In evaluating this question we need to carefully consider exactly WHAT counts as success. I realize no amount of exercise will shrink my Darth Vader helmet of a skull; I must also accept that pattern baldness is just an indignity that life commands me to endure, and like a woman refusing plastic surgery I will NEVER glue a rug to my scalp (or anything equally ridiculous). In other words, my expectations have to be in line with what can be achieved.
Even within those limitations I'm satisfied that the results justify the effort. I started facial exercise (Maggio) back in June '06 and only picked up Reinhart in early '07. I have been doing both daily and fairly quickly saw my face firm up and take on a chiseled shapeliness that certainly wouldn't have happened on its own. Taming my tendency to a double chin has taken somewhat longer but with ongoing effort it is DEFINITELY receding and I'm convinced that this too is an important battle that can be won. I am slightly amused by other reviewers complaining that facial workouts create more lines than they erase. What you're seeing here (for the first time) is muscular definition; would you gripe if you could see a six pack on your abs after months of effort? EVERY change I've observed on my own face has been an improvement!
An IMPORTANT (and possibly overlooked) point made on the video is that the "full routine" closing the DVD serves as a basis for constructing your own personalized facial workout (the full routine on the video takes about 20 minutes). In other words, don't just follow along with the "full routine" and wonder why things aren't shaping up as quickly as you'd like. I suspect most men (like myself) will require extra work and effort to sharpen the mouth and jawline. Be prepared to DO EXTRA reps for the areas you're particularly concerned about. This is where it might be useful for you to have a second book or video for another perspective. However I believe you CAN get good results using only the exercises demonstrated here, provided you'll customize your routine to match your needs.
So then, fellow males, have I convinced you? If you're not happy with the face you're showing then here's your best chance to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!"
Wow, I was really impressed...

"I have all facial exercise DVD's but this one is amazingly well detailed.
It explains and shows all the exercises in a simple way, both in 3d animation and live models. Finally a DVD that does not look like it was made at home.
It also has a full segment at the end that is real easy to follow
and you can feel all your face muscles working intensely.
I recommend it dearly.
Great for overall toning AND taking care of trouble spots

"Working out and dieting can bring about major changes in your body - but those benefits don't always extend to your face. I became interested in this DVD because I wanted to tone up my jawline, eliminating the dreaded "double chin." But first I watched the entire DVD two or three times, and was impressed by how thorough, well-explained and challenging each of the exercises were.
Once you have become familiar with the system, you can just click forward to the "Full Routine" at the end of the DVD. It's excellent for toning up the entire face - but my favorite sections have to be Cheeks, Jaw, and Neck. Since I began doing these exercises about 4 weeks ago, my jawline has become significantly tighter, prettier and more defined. Love it!"
