Introduction- I bought these tweezers a few months ago and I don't know what I did before them, before I bought these I saw that these had been rated so highly and I'd lost my old superdrug tweezers after owning them for so long so I wondered what all the fuss was about these.
- these tweezers grab every hair including the incredibly short ones
- good value for money considering how much I use them and how long they last (forever)
- they are slanted at an angle which helps grab hairs
- sleek design
- easy to lose if your like me as they are so small
- they are quite expensive
- only available online as far as I know
conclusion- I would definitely recommend these and although they may seem expensive to buy at the time compared to unbranded tweezers they are a great investment considering how long you'll have them for.
I, like so many people, am forever losing my tweezers! I was always picking up cheapies in the supermarkets because I knew that I would lose them.
Fed up of them not doing the job properly, I took the plunge and bought a pair of these in bright pink. I think I paid nearly £10 for them at the time as they used to be more expensive.
They are so easy use. You get a great shape really quickly and they have such a good grip that once you have the eyebrow it doesn't slip off like so many other makes.
I haven't lost these yet- and if I do I will be straight back to buying another pair.
It is honestly worth the investment. The grip is really good too and they are comfy to hold unlike the cheapie metal ones that are widely available.
I would recommend this product to anyone.
I brought these tweezers from a salon in Birmingham, Midlands called Lash lounge. I decided to buy the Tweezerman brand because I was fed up of buying cheap Tweezers that were not great at removing the hair, and often just trimmed the hair rather then pulling it out. I had heard many other great, positive reviews from this brand and thought I should give it a try.
I was given permission to try these before I buy and I found them to be fantastic. They removed the hair quicker then most others, and didn't cut the hair (like many other brands do), it was pain free and extremely quick. Because of the shape they were easy to reach into hard to reach places and angles. I also think the design is much more stylish and slick then others, they are easy to disguise and come in a fashionable leather case.
I will definitely be buying this brand again, although maybe I wont need to so soon as they have a life span of 10 years and you can send them off to be sharpened free of charge within this time. Definitely a thumbs up on this product!!!
These are expensive tweezers when compared with some own brand products available, however they are well worth the money! For a start they come with a guarantee, whats more they are perfectly aligned and the tapered point is perfect for getting even the most pesky of short regrowth hairs!I don't use any other brand to pluck my eyebrows now and save money doing it myself with these rather than getting them waxed or threaded :) these give a look that is just as professional in appearance so really its a win/win!!I would recommend anyone buy this brand of tweezers if they prefer a polished and well defined brow, especially so if they have had trouble in the past getting the short or very fine hairs with blunter brands.
I know the style nowadays is for big bushy eyebrows but I still like mine nice and neat and kept and I find the best way to do this is by using tweezers. I have never waxed my eyebrows and don't intend too, I've heard too many horror stories and I also don't feel like going to the expense of having them done professionally so I like to do them myself.
According to an article I read, "Tweezerman started in 1980 with a single product - the Splintertweeze® which became an instant best seller for its outstanding quality and precision. The secret to its effectiveness and popularity was its perfectly aligned hand filed tips. We then set out to develop an eyebrow tweezer with the same precise performance standard that made the Splintertweeze so celebrated. The world famous Tweezerman Slant® was born, featuring hand filed tips that grab every hair, every time. It was an instant success and is still our #1 seller."
I would say hand down this pair of Tweezerman tweezers are the best pair I have ever used and would never switch to a cheaper brand nowadays. The tweezers are a little bit more expensive than other brands but the saying is definitely true on this occasion, you get what you pay for and what you get here are a great quality pair of tweezers.
The tweezers are made out of stainless steel and are a good weight, hefty enough to really get a good grip on and pluck and pull well but also light enough to be nimble and effective. I find these tweezers really easy to hold and pinch with my fingers so I can get a nice good grip on the hair I am trying to pluck and it's not as painful as it could be.
I absolutely love the point on these tweezers as it comes to a really sharp point, a lot smaller and thinner than most other tweezers I have found. It is really quite sharp so you do need to be a bit careful when you are poking them around your eye and I have caused a few red spots under my eyebrows a few times by being a bit of zealous but I don't think they are too sharp or dangerous in anyway. The point is really finely tapered as well so you get a really good angle on the eyebrows too.
The nice thing is with these tweezers I can also use them for a few other types of hair too. This may sound really painful but I get a lot of ingrown hairs in my bikini line and if I don't deal with them and get rid of them straight away they often go red and sore and look a bit unsightly. The really sharp fine point of these tweezers gets them first time without having to try over and over, which can irritate this delicate area, and I find the hair comes out first time easily and doesn't cause me any red patches which is great.
These tweezers are also great for splinters and I've had to use them on my little girl recently when she got one at the playground. She was crying quite a bit because the wooden play house hurt her hand and after I had discovered she had a splinter we got home, used these (with a little bit of crying and "will it hurt?" in between) and it pulled it out well without leaving any part of the splinter in there.
All in all, a great pair of tweezers that every make up bag should have.
I've had my pair of Tweezerman for a couple of years and they've served me very well. They are quite sharp so you can do yourself a mischief if you're not careful, but I think they're worth the investment.
The perfectly aligned point of these tweezers is great for getting those tiny stubborn hairs that I particularly get between my eyebrows. The grip on the tweezers is also great and it means not too many missed attempts.
They come in a variety of different designs and patterns and I purchased mine for £25 in House of Fraser. They apparently come with a lifetime resharpening guarantee, but I've not pursued it. After using these every other day for the last two years, they are slightly blunt but still grip well. I've found that they misalign quite easily when you had a stray hair that gets caught between the tweezers and this is fiddly to sort out.
If you don't want to keep buying cheap tweezers that bend out of shape - get these, they'll last a lot longer and do a better job!
These silver steel tweezers are pretty awesome. They are very precise and have a slanted tip making then was to pull out the hair without pulling the skin. There are a nice regular size so easy to hold and easy to fit into your name up bag. My one love of these is to not just use to pluck out hair but to apply false lashes with them as they have a very good tight grip. Tweezerman call themselves the beauty tool experts and they are just that. They have delivered here a good versatile tweezer that really is good for just about anything from applications of lashes, removing unwanted hair to using them for arts and crafts. Another thing to add to the cute versatile tweezers is that they come in seven different colours to high my facourite is the baby pink ones. The tips are also hand filed which shows the care that tweezer an have out into these beauty tools. Maximising precision for eyebrow shaping.
I've always just bought cheap metal tweezers, having a slight preference for slanted ones, but just getting on with it. My last pair I didn't even pick - my husband had used the tweezers when we noticed fly strike on our cat, and I refused to use them again seeing what he had done with them, so he went and got me a pair from Boots straight away.
I don't know what persuaded me to upgrade to a pair of tweezerman's. I was feeling a little flush with a bit of amazon credit burning a hole in my pocket as such, and I had read a few reviews mentioning the good quality of the more premium brands of tweezers.
Hair removal is one of those never ending tasks for me. I like to look well groomed, and being quite dark haired, my hair is very noticeable against my skin, so the slightest bit of regrowth from plucked hair looks really awful. Also, smaller hairs that were too small to get with the tweezers would be noticeable to me if I touched my skin. I then constantly keep touching the same place as it annoys me, and I end up developing spots around the hair folicles which then keep getting touched, and so on.
So, my thought was I could grab these smaller irritating hairs that I can't get with my boots branded tweezers, and then my skin will look clearer and smoother as a result.
These tweezers are not cheap. On amazon they have a RRP of £20. However, the price goes up and down considerably, and when I bought them they were only £13 which feels more reasonable and worth trying. I have to say, they are worth the higher tag to me, but being from Yorkshire I do always like it when I manage to get something cheaper.
The tweezers came in a lot of plastic. There was an outer plastic box, and then inside the box is a plastic moulded tray the tweezers sit in. The tweezers have a small rubbery cap to go over the pointed ends, and when I removed this I could see why it is needed. The ends to these are very sharp - so much so that I treat these like scissors and keep them well out of reach of my children as it is very easy to pierce the skin with them if you are not careful.
The tweezers are made from stainless steel, so very easy to take care of. I find a quick wipe over to remove any debris, before sticking the cap back on to keep them ready for action. I have been storing them back in the original box to make sure that nothing squashes them or ruins the points.
The sales pitch is that these are perfectly aligned and have precision tension and this enables them to grab hairs and remove them with precision. I have certainly found them to be very precise and every hair I have attempted to grab, whether coarse or fine, and regardless of length, has been removed with such ease. I have never found keeping my eyebrows in check so easy. Previously if we were going anywhere special like a family event or out for the night I would leave my eyebrows for a few days before hand so I could attempt the perfectly groomed look. With these, I can do that on a daily basis.
Another use I have had for these is that I epilate my legs and have done for about 20 years. I regularly suffer from ingrown hairs on my legs, and if I pick at these with conventional tweezers, I end up with gouges in my leg which then go scabby and look awful. With these, a light pass over the skin is enough to free the hair, and I don't even have a red mark to show where I did it. What an improvement.
Finally, I thought these might be good if the kids got a splinter due to being able to get even the smallest hair. I haven't had chance to test these out on the kids, but my cat was limping, and when my husband looked at his paw, something was stuck between the pads causing him great discomfort. My husband asked for tweezers, so I gave him these as it was a delicate job involving two of us pinning the cat down to avoid him clawing us and getting the thing out. This got the thing out within seconds, making it far less traumatic for all of us, and saving me a trip to the vets to work out why the cat was limping around.
So in all, I have to say that this pair of tweezers is the best that I have personally used. They make personal grooming a lot more speedy and efficient, and though they were pricey, they are one of them items that are just worth every single penny. I highly recommend them, though urge anyone buying them to proceed with caution as they are ridiculously sharp and it would be easy to cut your delicate facial skin with them.
I must admit, I wish that the trend for a smooth hairless female form wasn't established. I spend a painful amount of time aiming for this goal, and in my quest, I have a good collection of tools to help eradicate those unwanted hairs. I do prefer a smooth body and neatly plucked and shaped brows, but detest the time and effort that is required to achieve this. So much for complete hair removal, oh no, that hair is going to grow back, and with it a few more hairs will appear. Whilst the hair also comes back darker and coarser, just great, often I find there are those irritating fine or flat hairs that are tricky to remove.
> > A tool up for the job
This is when you start looking for other tools to add to the collection in order to continue keeping up appearances. These tools are not affordable, like everything else they are ridiculously expensive, just to add to the frustration. Cheap tools just won't perform, and only add to the pain and torture you are going to subject yourself to. This is what I have learned, so I choose trusted brands that produce quality products. Cue Tweezerman, a leading manufacturer that has a wide range of products for sale. Be warned, if you're not in the know, their products are on the pricey side.
> > A fine point
The tweezers are presented in a transparent plastic box. They look slightly longer than an average pair of tweezers and the tip has a fine point to it. The tweezers are finely crafted from high grade stainless steel and feature a hand-filed tip for perfect precision. They claim to be able to grab the finest, most stubborn hairs, ingrown hair and removal of splinters. They can be used for practically any hair removal, including stubble. They are reportedly the expert tool that is a beauty must-have.
> > Get to the root of the problem
The tweezers do feel and look good. You are advised to grab the hair from the root and pull in the direction of the hair growth. This is to avoid breakage and to ensure that the entire hair is removed. For hair this is ingrown it is important to sterilize the tweezers and cleanse the area after work with disinfectant. The tweezers should be cleaned after use to keep them hygienic and carefully stored to keep them in good condition, which you are going to do after paying out £20 for them!
> > They're sharper than expected!
I was eager to use them and remove those irritating fine hairs (the ones that are not visible to others, unless they are examining you, closely!) You know how it is. So, away I went and as I went in to take the first hair I pierced the skin, ouch. I wasn't expecting that. Be warned, the tip is super sharp! A bit too sharp if you ask me. I manage to get some of those fine hairs removed, although I found it to be a tricky task. You need to have a steady hand and a good eye, neither of which I have.
> > Steady on!
The tweezers require steady movement, which isn't as easy as it seems. I have managed to pierce the skin many, many times using these tweezers. Once blood has been drawn, it makes it harder, and messier to remove the unwanted hair. Plus, if you're squeamish, you may not wish to continue. I have found it to be tedious to grab fine hairs, and find that it is down to skill and a good, steady hand. Frustratingly, I find the tweezers to be difficult to use. Undoubtedly, I have removed plenty of hairs that a regular pair of slanted tweezers just cannot grab.
> > Teasing out those hairs
The sharp tip makes it ideal for teasing out hairs that are not exposed enough to pull out. Once you manage to do this, you can grab the hair and pull it out. It is amazing to see how long the hair is once removed. This is a good way to get rid of those hairs that are about to come through. Again though, this can cause marking to the skin, and damage if the skin is thin or sensitive. Obviously, everyone will be different, and these tweezers may bring better results for others without the damage.
> > A high price to pay
I wouldn't want to pay out the full retail price for them again now that I have used them. However, having said all that, I have had them for a good amount of time and can report that they remain sharp and precise. The quality is of a high standard as expected. However, if you haven't a steady hand, and a good eye, you may wish to avoid these. For those that really want to remove those fine, flat or ingrown hairs, these are the only tool I've found to be up to the job. It can leave the skin looking sore, marked or even draw blood. With this in mind, if you are removing hair from an area that is on show, you may want to do this the night before to allow the skin to settle.
My best advice is: leave those fine hairs, they're not causing any problem, and the time and frustration saved is better all-round.
