“ Type: Tweezer / Brand: Tweezerman / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I get a lot of ingrown hairs - I'm not sure why, but because I do a good pair of tweezers is an absolute must-have because if ingrown hairs are left they can become infected and they are obviously pretty ugly too!
I used to struggle for ages with my old pair of tweezers which were really cheap and awful quality, it used to take me about 5 minutes to manage to actually grip the hair and pull it out and I also sometimes needed to use a needle if the hair was deep in my skin , but with these tweezers they have a sharp edge which is great and they're very precise and sharp so they grip the hair without any faffing around and get any skin covering the hair out of the way as they're so sharp, this might sound painful but it really isn't.
They're also great for plucking out any stray eyebrow hairs and neatening them up. It's easy to get hold of a single hair and pull it out because of how precise the tweezers are and whenever I am using the tweezers they aways get the whole hair out by the root which means it takes longer for the hair to grow back which is good, my other tweezers would usually just snap the hair off and leave the root which meant that I had to pluck the hairs very regularly.
The tweezers are comfortable to hold, lightweight and easy to grasp. Although the tweezers are a little smaller in length than an average pair of tweezers they are not fiddle and not really that much smaller, but they're still neat. With my old pair of tweezers which were metal all over rather than having any sort of coating on the handle part I often was left with indentments on my fingers from where I'd been holding them whilst plucking my eyebrows etc, and although this wasn't very painful it was a bit annoying, but because these ones are smooth they are comfortable to hold with a smooth handle they don't dig into my fingers. I also find that I don't need to use a lot of pressure when pressing them together, which is really good. I tend to remove ingrown hairs when I'm in the bath and I am able to easily grip the tweezers even with wet hands.
The tweezers are excellent quality and after over a year of being used regularly they aren't blunt or rusty. They are easy to clean and I just use an antibacterial wipe to clean them once I've finished removing the ingrown hair, though I don't bother cleaning them after plucking my eyebrows. As well as being durable, good quality and accurate they are also really cute and girly, and they're so much nicer to look at than an average pair of tweezers! Mine are a lovely shade of purple with white spots, and they have the tweezerman logo on them.
The tweezers retail at around £15 which is pricy, but 100% worth it. I have had mine for a year and they are still just as good quality and accurate as they were the day I bought them, and I think they'll last me for at least a few years. I actually only paid £8 for mine as I got them in the ASOS sale, but I'd happily pay the full price given the quality and design.
