I saw an infomercial for a device called the Neckline Slimmer, which is something you use to exercise your neck and jaw muscles....cheaper alternative to a facelift I suppose. Was wondering if anyone's tried it and has any advice good or bad?

It sells for about 30 dollars and is supposed to tighten your neckline (double chin) area in about 8 weeks.

It looks like a total waste of money and time to me, but then again, I have not tried it.

At $20 + shipping, it does not appeal to me.

Why couldnt you simply use a tennis ball or soft rubber ball instead? Anything with some resistance would probably work. Guess I just hate wasting money.

I saw that commercial too and thought someone sure is making a lot of money with this invention. Wonder if it could work using a rubber ball on a desk??

Probably only if you master dribbling the ball with your chin.

Or you can do the old bobbing for apples, pass the ball trick. Just joking!!! I have a feeling that it does not work.

I thought it was a joke! I cannot imagine anybody thinking it would actually work
