I need some new tweezers - all mine have gone (Goodness knows where) and my Last Resort Pair ( Mr Mascara) just don't do it.

I have bought Tweezerman in the past but some are better than others and of course, they're wrapped so it's hard to tell.

A pair in a nifty holder I bought were rubbish, far too chunky.

What d'you recommend that I can buy very soon (I have an evil chin hair that's really annoying me.............. )

Mine are cosmo ones from Superdrug, three in a little faux leather pouch with differing tips on.

Tweezerman are a waste of time and money, I've owned 3 but they all ended up chipping. I got this from Amazon last July and they've served me very well so far

I'm a hairy wench and sainsburys tweezers do it for me. You can get straight, slanted and pointy ones for a couple of quid.

I just found a pair of tiny tiny tweezers (about 1" long) and tried with them. Of course they just snapped the hair off at skin level hmm so I'll have a spot there now.
Couldn't leave it alone could I <<sigh>>

I don't pluck my eyebrows at all and DD has hers threaded so I have usually got a pair somewhere but not when I need them.

Off to browse ...........

These are the best. FAR better than Tweezerman.

i came on to say the same as tethersend, they are really good tweezers.

I use these Rolston tweezers with a built-in light. It's a depressing experience when used with a magnifying mirror, but you will catch every stray hair.

I was in Boots t'other day and spied some No7 tweezers (looked ok, I thought)

I bought the very fine point ones. They are really good (and £8 IIRC0

I don't have much brow but I dpend a while with a magnifying mirror and a good light, sorting them (and the chin hair blush )

Wilko. I have several pairs of theirs, and they are really good.

I have a pair from the body shop from years ago which are amazing - they can get hairs I can't see yet. However, when I bought a second pair in case I lost the first, they were rubbish helpful.

Quite like the boots ones mentioned up thread, though.
