Those bloody eyebrow razors. Even dh who never notices anything said to me this morning "what the fucks happened to your face"

I look like someone has taken barbed wire and pressed it against my skin just above my eyebrows. Loads and loads of little scabby, itchy spots. Which I must have scratched in my sleep and are now big scabby, bleeding, oozing mess. With stubble mixed in for good measure.

Oh no. Glad I didn't order

GalaxyInMyPants Sat 19-Jul-14 11:37:06

Oh and to top it off I've got a big sporny, solid white head brewing a big head to the edge of one eyebrow. grin

Which may or may not be related to the shaving debacle.

Eyebrow what now?? Sounds v nasty!

MaloryArcher Sat 19-Jul-14 11:39:47

What the hell did you expect to happen when you shaved your goddamn face confused confused confused

GalaxyInMyPants Sat 19-Jul-14 11:40:20


There's a reason why no one had heard of them.

GalaxyInMyPants Sat 19-Jul-14 11:41:01

People on here promised me it would be fine. <sob>

You've probably got hepatitis too as am sure those eyebrow razors are made by prison inmates out of a rusty razor and a toothbrush handle!!

You better get in the Savlon!

I remembered seeing the eyebrow razor thread and thinking why the fuck would anyone take a razor to their eyebrows?!
Sounds awful!

wheretoyougonow Sat 19-Jul-14 11:42:16

Shit - mine have just come through the letterbox. I was promised the eyebrows of a Goddess!

CatKisser Sat 19-Jul-14 11:42:46

Hahaha!!! madame

When I read the original thread I tutted a lot and muttered "It'll all end in tears!". I am indeed infallible.

Coughle Sat 19-Jul-14 12:18:17

Oh I knew this would be about the eyebrow razor. Mine hasn't arrived yet...

I bought some. Nothing like that has happen to me. My eyebrows are in perfect shape, 'twas quick and easy to do!

<sorry OP!>

Oh god. grin

I put those razors in my amazon basket but sanity returned and I didn't click buy.

I think you need to post a photo as a warning to everyone on that other thread. It's your duty.wink

BalloonSlayer Sat 19-Jul-14 12:30:21

Oh dear.

I read that and thought "ooh wow!" And then sanity returned and I thought, "But you, Balloon, will end up shaving your eyebrows off. You KNOW that."

RingleaderOfTheTormentors Sat 19-Jul-14 12:32:12

Yes, photos please, it's for the good of womankind! You will be performing your civic duty. Thanks for sharing!

Goodgodmissmoll Sat 19-Jul-14 12:34:02

I have used this razor for years and have never made a mistake with it. Don't give up because of one bad experience. You just need stay hands, a large mirror and enough light to see what you are doing.

TulipOHare Sat 19-Jul-14 12:34:12

Oh nooooo!

(I bought some too though and they worked fine!)

GretchenWiener Sat 19-Jul-14 12:34:52

What are we shaving ? Why ? I'm unclear

OwlCapone Sat 19-Jul-14 12:42:29

I had my brows threaded yesterday. They look fab.

loopylady83 Sat 19-Jul-14 12:42:38

sorry but lol oopps

TheSpottedZebra Sat 19-Jul-14 12:48:51

Look, you can't post the word 'sporny' and not them post a picture.
'Tis written in the MN Constitution.
