Do you pay $20-30 every couple of weeks to get your brows waxed, trimmed or threaded by a professional? I do! I have been going to the Benefit Brow Bar for many years for this service simply because I didn’t have the know-how or tools to get my brows into shape myself. This is where Tweezerman comes in!
Tweezerman has been the “gold standard” for tweezers for what seems like ever. And there is a reason for that. They have really great ones! In fact I reviewed a few of their products back in June 2009. Their tweezers are stainless steel and super sharp and precise. They will also sharpen them for you for free (when they become dull over natural usage) if you send them to their Sharpening & Service Department in New York!
You might be like me and think, a tweezer, is a tweezer, is a tweezer, right? Wrong! There are actually a few different types for different usages. And even some with super cute patterns!
But not only does Tweezerman have tweezers, they have all the tools necessary for you to maintain your unruly brows.
Here you see a variety of what they can offer. Various sizes, shapes and tips. From top to bottom:
- Pointed Slant Tweezer (stainless steel -$25) – This will help you grab coarse hairs and very small stubs. Good for precision work.
- Slanted Tweezer (stainless steel -$22) – This is the standard tweezer used by most people, and what I usually use. These come in stainless or a variety of new cool colors.
- Slanted Tweezer (city skyline enamel -$22) – Slightly more narrow tip than the standard Slanted Tweezer above it.
- Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer ($25) – Same great precision tweezers with a cool zebra etch on them!
- Point Tweezers (stainless steel – $22) – These have a super point tip which is good for ingrown hairs, baby stubble and super fine hairs. These come in stainless, red or black.
- Special Edition Pop of Op Mini Slant Tweezer (stainless steel with enamel – $10) – This is just a cute mini version of the classic slanted version. These come in lavender (shown), pink and blue.
Now we get to the others tools that help keeps your brows and eyelashes aligned.
- Mini Eyebrow Brush – A Spoolie brush for brushing hair up or down when getting ready to trim excess.
- Brow Shaping Scissors ($18 for brush & scissors) – Ultra thin precision blades and a contoured shape allows you to easily trim excess hair growth easily.
- Folding Lashcomb ($9.50) – This lashcomb has gold plated metal teeth which help comb out clumps in your mascara.
- Browmousse ($10)- This is a clear gel that helps brows stay in place once you have shaped and filled them in (or not).
- Eyenhance Pencil ($20)- This is a dual-ended pencil that features a medium brown brow shape on one end and a shimmery pale highlighter on the other end.
Of all these products listed, my day-to-day ones are the standard Slanted Tweezer and the Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush. I must confess though, I am still not great at trimming them myself with the scissors. Somehow I always wind up with the wrong piece cut. But that is user-error, not the fault of the products.
I will still be going to get my brows done professionally because I am stubborn in that way, BUT I can at least keep them somewhat in shape in-between appointments with these products.
Availability: Tweezerman, Target, Sephora, CVS, etc.
