About Face Product
Wrinkle Prevention Pillow - $99
Give mom a way to avoid those wrinkles or furrowed brows by gifting her with the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow. It features an ergonomically contoured center that makes sleeping on your back more natural and comfortable as it supports the head, neck, and spine with an exclusive memory foam. The patented design lifts and cradles your head so that permanent lines and wrinkles don’t develop on the face, neck and chest during sleep. The pillow also helps prevent puffy eyes by slightly elevating the head, which prevents fluid from pooling under the eyes during the night. With approval from leading Beverly Hills skincare experts, your mom is also sure to give it a rave review. The lavish pillow is encased in a 100% well-appointed cotton fabric to keep the pillow clean when washing the case. It comes in four soothing colors, including ivory, dusty rose, chocolate and purple.
