Boots Slanted Tweezers

Advantages: cheap, easy to use
Disadvantages: not very stylish
I think there is actually some sort of tweezer black hole in my flat, I lose them all the time and they never seem to reappear! There is nothing worse than having a stray hair in need of plucking and being unable to find any tweezers. So I like to have several tweezers strategicly placed around the place in case of such an emergency
I'm not a massive believer in spending a lot of money on fancy pants tweezers which I will probably have lost within a few months, so at only £1 these boots tweezers are an absolute bargain. A tweezer is a tweezer in my opinion and the more expensive ones may look a bit nicer, have a cooler design but arn't any better than the cheaper ones.
These boots tweezers are just a plain silver colour and are made of metal, they have a slanted head and a ribbed grippy type bit so you can hold on to them securely. The tweezers are approximately 3 inches long and even though they are cheap they feel well made. I have had several of these tweezers and they have never broken, have only had to replace them when I inevitably lose them. I prefer slanted tweezers to straight or pointed ones when it comes to plucking hair. I find the slanted edge more versatile as you can turn it different ways and are able to pluck out even the most stubborn hairs. Boots also do pointed and straight edge tweezers if you prefer at the cost of £1.75 and £1.80 respectively, so another good thing about these tweezers, they are the cheapest in the range!
I mainly use the tweezers to pluck my eyebrows, although as I have gotten older I seem to to get other stray hairs on my face, such as my chin (chin hairs, the actual bain of my life!) so they are suitable for all sorts of hairs. I'm not sure how useful these would be in a first aid kit, I imagine the pointed tweezers would be better for digging out splinters and such but I have used these slanted tweezers for that in the past. Yes they did get the splinter out, but it did take a while, but I'm guessing they are not really designed for that.
Overall I would definitely recommend these tweezers, I often just pick up some when I'm in boots as you can never had too many tweezers, the more you have the better in my opinion! Costing only £1 you definitely can't go wrong.
Summary: great tweezers for a great price
