The 9 Best Jaw Exercisers
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Whether you're recovering from a facial injury or just want to tighten up the skin around your neck and mouth, these jaw exercisers can put some little-used muscles to the test. While they're good for rehabilitation and toning, be wary of any product that promises to work miracles — sometimes, the only magic trick they're capable of is making your hard-earned money disappear.

While we can't attest to the many claims of jaw exercisers reducing wrinkles; smoothing smile lines; and giving you a fresher, more youthful-looking face. We can state that the principle most work on, namely resistance, is proven to build muscles in other parts of our bodies, so if you are solely looking to increase the strength and definition of your jaw line, they should prove to be effective.
The Jawzrsize is probably the most popular model, and for good reason. It comes in multiple resistances, is quite durable, and isn't so big that some users may struggle to get it between their teeth. That being said, it is a bit pricey for what it is and the Sotiras Double Chin Reducer provides a nearly identical experience, as long as you can fit it into your mouth that is.
Quality wise, the Carvd 2.0 is on par with the Jawzrsize and is also compact enough for pretty much anyone to use comfortably. We like the inclusion of a hard storage case, which we definitely recommend using anytime the tablets aren't in your mouth, and the fact that it, too, comes in three resistances. One drawback it has compared with the Jawzrsize is the lack of a lanyard, which means there is the potential for dropping it onto the ground during use.
The Facial-Flex Toning Kit has been marketed as a therapy device for more than 20 years and relies on elastic bands to produce resistance, much like larger exercise bands. It is one of the few options registered as a Class 1 medical device with the FDA, so you can rest easy knowing it is produced of safe, high-quality materials.
Of all the options we have included, the JawFlex Ultimate is probably the easiest, as it produces the least amount of resistance. While this can make for a more pleasant experience for beginners as compared to the others, it also means that most will outgrow it quickly if used regularly and will need to move onto a harder option at some point.

There's a fairly notable divide between our top selections and the ones lower on the list. That being said, starting off with a more affordable option may be smart, even if it's inferior, as it can give you the opportunity to determine just how committed you are to your new exercise routine. Our top picks are suitable for professional use, however.
