Tips n Tricks: Tweezerman Slant Tweezer

We are descendants of very hairy people, back in those prehistoric days people had hair all over, with purpose of warmth and dirtpreventing and such... As the climate began to change, so did our hair and it minimized but still occured on several necessary places as it does today... But, us girls, we do not like all this hair - legs, armpits, lip, etc- we like to have it gone. I also live in this 'gone' department. And then we come to my eyebrows, who obviously are prehistoric in some way. If I don't do anything about them I look bewildered, they become very thick...

When I was in highschool I used to use my mothers tweezers (just a random no brand thing) but it was quite difficult to use and I occasionaly had a little wound from trying to tweeze too hard - not grabbing the hair but my skin. Later on I bought somewhat the same tweezer for myself and went on with the hard tweezing until 2 years ago... I had been reading a lot on blogs and decided I wanted to invest in a Tweezerman Slant Tweezer, normal version, but at that time they weren't available in my country so I had to buy them online. I quickly found them and chose a colour, sky. A week later, the Tweezer was mine and I was so impressed with it, tweezing became so much easier. It grabs almost every hair, doesn't leave wounds and works so precise - just love it!

It isn't cheap, its only downside, I paid 20$ and ordered from Strawberrynet, buying them in a store in Europe is more expensive though (Belgium - IciParis, around 20euros). They also offer a wide range of similar products, depending on your brows needs. On a side note, they also offer a special service: free sharpening. If you feel your tweezers ends are in for a treat you can fill in a form, post it along with your tweezer and they sharpen it for free and sent it back to you. Something really special, I'm certainly going to try it, but for now my Tweezer still looks like new!

I've had mine for 2 years now and it's still in good condition, it's worth investing in it. The price may frighten you, I felt the same way, but I'm glad a took the risk. I cannot live without mine anymore...

De mijne was maar een 20 euro in de Ici Paris (nu wel een dik jaar geleden). Het is die speciale versie van Pink Ribbon die wat duurder is!
Het is het beste pincet ter wereld!!

Ah ja die verschijnt ook elk jaar, het hangt ervanaf welk pincet je neemt. Maar het zit altijd rond die prijs, en het is het waard!
