If I had to tell you three physical flaws I see in myself, they would be the nose, protruding ears and slightly X legs. I can’t do anything to my legs, but I can improve my nose (check out my blog post “Non surgical nose job: my experience”) and temporarily fix my slightly dumbo ears.
Fix protruding ears with Otostick
What is Otostick? Does it work?
Otostick is a brand that produces a small silicone prosthesis that keeps your ears close to your head, thanks to its two hypoallergenic adhesive sides.
The silicone is transparent, so people won’t notice this little trick unless you have your hair up and someone comes really close to you from behind. As you can see from the pictures above Otostick’s prostheses are very subtle.
Before you get too excited: Otostick’s result is not permanent. FYI there is a version for babies, which can be used on them from 3 months old, that produces an effective and permanent ears correction with regular use because the cartilage is still “flexible” at that age.
Application and side effects
To ensure a great result and duration, you should:
- Clean the area with soap and water
- Remove your hair from the area
- Try to understand which is the correct area and position the silicone prosthesis before peeling off the adhesive
- Peel off the adhesive (do not to touch the adhesive surface!) on the side that will go on the ear and stick it on your ear
- Then peel off the adhesive on the other side
- Gently press it straight down to you head
There are no side effects.
How much does it last?
Once you apply the two prostheses, they last from 3 to 7 days. Don’t worry, they are painless, so you won’t feel anything.
Is Otostick waterproof?
Yes, it is waterproof and resistant to sweat and heat. Not only you can shower with Otostick, but you can also wear it to the gym or to the pool!
Can you wear glasses with this ear corrector?
Yes, you can still wear glasses and sunglasses. The only thing you can’t do is putting your hair behind your ears, which I usually do a lot.
How much does it cost?
15€! I think is absolutely amazing for special occasions or specific hairstyles. If you want to go out with boxer braids, then apply Otostick, but there is no point in spending so much money for this product just to wander around the house.
As the title suggests, it’s a temporary solution.
You can’t fix your protruding ears forever but you can fix your insecurities for a while.
Where to buy
You can buy Otostick here on Amazon. Each pack contains 8 prostheses and lasts up to 4 weeks if the ear corrector is applied to both ears every week.
