What are the best tweezers? The clue is in the name, it’s of course ‘Tweezer’man. So many many years ago I found the perfect pair of tweezers, they were great in every way, then the other day I dropped them down the drain and they are gone forever ;( And I have no idea where I got them from, so I needed to find another pair.
I really didnt want to spend nearly 20 quid on tweezers, so instead I built up a nice stock pile of incredibly shit ones, then caved and bought the Tweezerman‘s I should have bought in the first place.
Tweezerman – why are they great? Very firm tips, so good grip, get the hairs immediately. Smooth clean edge so not causing any skin irritation and they don’t just cut off the hair which is incredibly annoying. I got the travel ones as they are more like £12 rather than £18 and they are small and springy, so good dexterity. They also come in different colours! I got pink, of course.
Other than that, when it comes to high street brands there are like two types of tweezers, which rather than write twenty reviews i’ve just picked out two:
Marks and Spencers – very chunky, so not very agile and whilst the grip is much better than the Boots ones, and doesn’t have a sharp edge, it’s still a 50/50 if it’s going to acutally tweeze anything.
Boots – own brand tweezers, awful awful awful, the edge is so sharp it scraped all my skin and made it really red and irritated, this also meant that is quite often just cuts the hair off rather than pulling it out. And, the actual grip is terrible, about 20 hours to get one hair. So these go at the bottom of the list. I saw so many other pairs like this, sometimes it is worth spending more to get a better quality product!
