Advantages: High quality hair removal - ergonomically well designed
Disadvantages: Bit more expensive but worth the money
Why decide on Tweezerman?
This brand is decidedly more expensive than my recent few sets of tweezers but having read numerous reviews about these little fella's my mind was made up - my next lot of Boots Advantage points was earmarked and I was treating myself to a pair of tweezers that actually perform well.
Points spent and home I went!
I was excited to trial these tweezers. Having struggled with my latest pair for a good year or so I looked forward to a good session of brow shaping. My last pair simply were not fit for purpose - the grip was rather hit and miss and they appeared to slice hairs in half rather than remove if used at a certain angle.
The first thing to note about the Tweezerman's is how cute they are and that they have a reusable plastic case with a lid on. I don't need a long handle as I normally hold tweezer close to the pincers. The width is surprisingly thick and the polka dot design covers the handle perfectly and giving some gloss but with a matt feel. The tips are bare metal and look a good thickness and quality. Indeed the small product is very high in quality. I'm glad about that as £15 is quite a lot more than I normally pay for tweezers.
I have some thick brow hairs and some finer hair - would the Tweezermans succeed in removing the finer hair? Yes. I did not do any special preparation before I began to pluck. The slanted tips of the tweezers are ergonomically well designed as is the whole tweezer as it is so comfortable to handle and I feel totally in control. The hair was located and pulled out fully - no problem encountered and certainly no slicing through the hair shaft. Thicker hairs were a doddle. I can even locate stray hairs which are in amongst the other brow hairs and manage to pull them out - rather than attempting numerous times which often results in a thin/bald spot!
The tweezers maintain the tight grip and clean looking tips. No rust has appeared up to now. I always keep them in the case that is provided so that they remain as clean as possible.

I'm dotty about Tweezerman!
I can highly recommend these tweezers. I have learned that by paying a bit more I can have a pair of tweezers that are fit for purpose and of high quality. They come with a reusable case which has proven very useful and keeps them clean. Pocket sized these are easily stored. Hair removal is now very easy for me and I wish that I had purchased them sooner instead of struggling. I was reluctant to pay so much initially but after reading a significant number of reviews I took the plunge and can report that you will get what you pay for and they will last. I am very impressed.
