Tweezerman. They are recommended by so many industry experts, and come with lifetime sharpening guarantee. £15 from Boots, I think.

I was just coming on to say Tweezerman. Nothing else to add, really!

Tweezerman. smile

I bought mine years ago, maybe 15 years or so! from QVC - I think they were about £11 back then. That was more than enough for me to spend on tweezers.

But they are still perfect.

Another saying Tweezerman. I've had mine for over 10 years now and still going strong

The needle tweezer man
Tho the life time sharpening I'd a bit of a con, you have to post them to new York! I sharpen them myself

The speil on the back says " we offer free sharpening service with no outbound shipping or handling charges and no processing fees". That's pretty cool. Would I actually send them off though? hmm

Stealthpolarbear Wed 22-Jul-15 14:11:07

Oh right. In mine it seemed to say I had to send them to ny and back at my own expenses

Tweezerman. I buy them as stocking stuffers for everyone.

Tweezerman. Mine are around 17 years old. Never sharpened them. Get the slanted ones not the pointy ones.

How do you sharpen yours, Stealth?

Stealthpolarbear Wed 22-Jul-15 14:33:38

With a knife sharpener. I put it between the blades and sort of pull it out whole closing the blades.
I don't understand how some of you never need to sharpen them. Mine need sharpening about twice a year!

Stealthpolarbear Wed 22-Jul-15 14:34:12

While closing the blades. I think rough sandpaper would do a similar job but never tried

CoconutAmericano Wed 22-Jul-15 14:51:22

So it's unanimous then! grin. Looking forward to giving my brows a good seeing to later

Stealthpolarbear Wed 22-Jul-15 14:54:10

Get the pointy ones. Takes ages to do eyebrows but so satisfying

CoconutAmericano Wed 22-Jul-15 14:59:01

Oh I got the slanty ones stealthpolarbear. Ah well I'm sure they'll do the job. They have to better than the ones I'm using now. They look like tweezers but rarely do they grip anything!

Stealthpolarbear Wed 22-Jul-15 15:01:29

Yes the slanty ones are good too. The pointy ones are quite lethal!
