It’s a struggle most glasses-wearers can relate to: Frames can’t seem to stay put for more than 30 seconds without sliding down your nose, requiring you to channel your inner geek with a one-fingered readjustment. If this sounds like you, a helpful product may be the answer to your woes.

Nerdwax, featured on the reality show Shark Tank, is designed to keep your glasses secured to your face. A swipe of the ChapStick-like tube over your nose or glasses pads reduces the slip-factor and can keep your specs in place for hours at a time.

According to the Nerdwax website, the wax is cosmetic-grade, so it'll be gentle on your skin as it does the job. One tube will last six to eight months and can be purchased online for $10.99. Now you can stop worrying about pushing up your glasses and focus on looking fabulous.

Mental Floss has affiliate relationships with certain retailers and may receive a small percentage of any sale. But we choose all products independently and only get commission on items you buy and don't return, so we're only happy if you're happy. Thanks for helping us pay the bills!
