Ds has 'disappeared' my good tweezers and my eyebrows will soon be Healeyesque.

So, quickie question: Tweezerman - yes or no?

My good tweezers have mysteriously vanished too. I'm in need of a new pair so will watch this with interest.

I have these, v good. Sharp though. Ow!!!

Definite yes! I have the pink ones and think they're great!

expatinscotland Wed 17-Aug-05 09:33:19

YES! YES!

northerner Wed 17-Aug-05 09:33:19

Are they good enough to remove that annoying stubbly bit of eyebrow though?

motherinferior Wed 17-Aug-05 09:33:47

Yes. Really, really, yes.

How much are they?

Mum2Ela Wed 17-Aug-05 09:35:18

Yes, they are fab. I have two pairs now as my pink ones are now a bit blunt (had those ones a couple of years tho). They come in a nice carry ase which I like

YES, YES, YES. I love my Tweezerman slanted tweezers. I've got the smaller ones in a case, um.... (runs to make-up bag).....'Petite Tweeze', about £12. I also have their eyelash curlers (cheaper at £4), they're fab too. Because my tweezers came with a case they are much more difficult to lose.

They're not cheap. But they are good, honestly, and I speak as a lifelong cheapskate.

Mine also offered 'lifetime' free sharpening on the packet but you have to post them to Texas ! [mildy bemused emoticon]

Why do tweezers need sharpening? [confused]

NomDePlume Wed 17-Aug-05 09:43:39

Because you need a fine sharp edge in order to grip the shortest hairs, the edge gets blunted over time and they don't grip as well.

tweezerman = fab!

gingerbear Wed 17-Aug-05 09:48:30

Ah ha! thanks for explanation (can you tell- I don't use mine enough to have this problem??) [hairy]

Well, are you now suitably plucked, snafu ?
