Tweezerman Review

Pop of Op Mini Slant Tweezer

Pop of Op Mini Slant Tweezer- The stainless steel Mini Slant Tweezer features a hand-filed tip perfectly aligned to grab every hair every time with the smoothest precision. The ideal on-the-go tool for any makeup bag, purse and travel, this is the perfect miniature version of the award-winning Slant Tweezer a.k.a. the choice of make-up artists, models, celebrities and the most discerning beauty enthusiasts who demand the very best.

Tweezerman carries the cutest tweezer designs I have ever seen in my life. I’m not kidding when I say that I have never actually even seen any ones with designs. The only ones I’ve seen are the plain silver ones.

AND I’m not going to lie when I say I am a wuss. YES! I admit it. I hated tweezing my eyebrows because it ALWAYS made my eyes water and it did more damage to me then actually helped. WHY? because eventually I’d give up and NOT even do it.. lol.. You can make fun of me all that you want.. It really did hurt.

I even switched to the eyebrow shaper shaver thing. (which if I must say, made eyebrow hairs WORSE) They grew in thicker and faster, which sucked! I would notice a day or so later that they were all back. What’s the use in even using something like that if it makes taming eyebrows worse?

But when these tweezers presented themselves into my life, who was I NOT to give them a try? I was absolutely glad I did. They are very easy to hold, pull gently but get the job done, and help create a better shape than the regular stainless ones.

With these tweezers though, it’s an entirely different story. It’s like- it pulls but not STINGY pulls. It seems to do it in the direction of the hair, so it doesn’t hurt as bad. I’ve learned a few tricks and tips over the years.

The slanted tip of these amazing tweezers make it so much easier to grab ahold of those pesky little hairs and get them out of the way. Having unruly eyebrows IS NOT attractive in any shape or form. These are super-accurate and exact in the way they grab and don’t let go. I hated to spend so much (with other brands) that were letting hairs slip and break, which would eventually end up in redness, bumps, and blotches.

Since using Tweezerman, I have acknowledged less irritation and ingrown hairs that result in red bumps. It takes HALF the time it did when I was using the other brands because I don’t dread it. Half the time I spent whining about how much it hurt.. Now it’s a breeze; no whining, crying, or putting it off and ending up a caveman wannabe. (HA).

It’s a lot less stressful, I’ll admit. I wanted perfect eyebrows, but could NEVER get them because of the whiny baby stuff AND the growing back super fast when using the shave shaper. Now I don’t have to worry about it.

They are super fashionable, and are small enough to fit in any cosmetic bag or purse. As long as you have some kind of mirror with you, you could tweeze in the bathroom at work before a meeting or sitting in your care before a date with your babe. There is nothing less sexy than a uni-brow.

But to make tweezing go BETTER for you and to not hurt so bad, I give you some tips.

Tweezing Tips:

Take a hot shower (and put your face directly in the line of water for about 5 minutes.) Don’t drown yourself though.. lol. The hot water softens your eyebrow hairs and opens your pores. This makes tweezing a breeze.

FYI: If you are running behind on time and there is no way possible for you to take a shower, there is another option. Wet a washcloth in hot water (for about 2 min) and lay directly across your eyebrows. Leave it this way for a couple of minutes and the hot water does the same trick. Softens the hurt because it softens the hairs and opens the pores.

While tweezing- pull the hair in the right direction. Right eyebrow pull it right and left pull left. Pull UP and left or right. I f you pull down on the hairs, it will break your hair.

AFTER: Soothe your skin so it doesn’t turn red and blotchy. Great soothers include ice, skin cream (not lotion), or witch hazel (or something with witch hazel inside).

 

They have some pretty awesome tweezers for sale. Different styles and price ranges, no matter what your looking for. From $15-

Animal prints are a HUGE hit these days. I even started liking them and I have NEVER liked them. You still won’t see me wearing a zebra or leopard print shirt- but purses, clutches, and shoes- yes. Have you ever thought about animal print tweezers? Tweezerman HAS.
