Tweezerman Smooth Facial Hair Remover
When I started my blog back in 2012, I didn't even want to photograph my face, never mind writing about facial hair removal! However, it's something we all have to deal with to some extent and it can be annoying and painful; although the new *Tweezerman Smooth Finish Facial Hair Remover (£20) might be the answer for some. 

For my brows, I've always used tweezers or wax and I always do them myself - I wouldn't trust anyone else to do them and I honestly don't understand why anyone would go to a salon and pay for it as it's so quick and easy to do at home. However, tweezing isn't the most comfortable thing to do but with the Tweezerman tweezers I use it isn't awful and waxing obviously isn't pain free either so I would definitely want a less painful opinion, if possible. 

I've been using this device for almost two weeks now and to be honest when I received it, it did look like some kind of torture device but it works in a similar way to threading. There is a spring like section in the middle which as you twist the knobs on the sides of the pink handles and move across the skin, it pulls out the hair from the root which sounds like an eye watering process but as someone who has waxed and tweezed for years, I can tell you that this is less painful. 

Yes, it isn't pain free and you can feel the slight pinch as hairs are being removed but it is no where near as painful as waxing or tweezing, in my opinion. It feels a little odd to use and it definitely takes some getting used to but after practising it is quick and easy. However one of my problems with it is that it isn't great at getting hairs from under the brow as it is too big - it is perfect for above the brows as well as other unwanted hair on the face though. Also I find that it can only really remove baby hair/lighter and thinner hair rather than darker/thicker hair which makes up most of my brows. I've tried using it at different angles and it still doesn't work for thicker/darker hair but I do find that having the skin very dry (without any moisturiser on) definitely helps the device grip the hair. 

Overall, I think the device is a less painful way of removing facial hair and even though it takes some time and practise, it is relatively quick and easy! I have found the device great for above my brows and lighter 'baby hair' else where but for between my brows and under my brows, I can't really use it and it doesn't seem to remove thicker/darker hair that well unfortunately as if it did, it would be amazing for me personally. I think this hair removal device would be perfect for those with fair/lighter/thinner hair. 


Have you tried the new Tweezerman hair remover? Have you tried threading or waxing?

  1. I saw this before and it just freaked me out. I would consider purchasing it now, but only if I was told buy more people it was worth it.
    However I would never use it on my eyebrows!

    1. It is slightly awkward to use on the brows but it's good for general hair removal x

  4. This product looks completely terrifying lol but now I am curious about it. I Hate shaving, hate waxing, and would only try threading if someone paid me quite a lot to do so...

  6. What an interesting contraption but useless to me as I my brows are very thick. I guess it would be good for upper lip though!

  7. This looks like a nifty little device! My brows are very dark though so it probably wouldn't work for me x
