40 Days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 11, Tweezerman by Patti aka Cavewoman
You can tell by the scratches on the pink ones, so old that I can't even remember when or where I bought them, that these Tweezerman tweezers are well-loved and well-used Chez Cave. They are deserving of every rave and glowing review, and belong in every grooming kit, vanity table, medicine chest, and cosmetic bag! Their cult status is legendary. These elegant tools are well-balanced, feel comfortable in the hand, and are easy to hold and control.
After years of pinching the heck out of my eyelids with drugstore tweezers, I finally forked out the bucks for the long pink Tweezerman with the slant tip in the photo. The difference between Tweezerman and the LaCross and Revlon tweezers I'd been using was nothing short of amazing. I can pluck out the super-baby-fine strays in my brows with ease (well, setting aside the pain of plucking, of course) and it's easy to pluck one at a time and not go too far or accidentally pluck out a hair that you didn't want to pluck!
I bought the silver ones for The Caveman because he had been "borrowing" my pink ones. I am sure that readers of Blogdorf are chuckling at the thought of The Caveman plucking out a stray beard hair with pink Tweezermans. So now he has his very own tweezer. The smaller, oddly-shaped pink tweezer at the top, with the holes in the handle, would work well for someone who has a hard time holding or controlling a tweezer, and needs a better grip. They're also a great little size for travel!
The hot pink pointed tweezer is something I picked up at the local Trade Secret store. I prefer the slant-tip for brow tweezing, but I thought it would be good to have the point-tip on hand here -- and I wasn't sure when I would need it but I knew I would. The point-tip has come in handy for removing splinters. I haven't tried it on the brow area yet. The packaging for the point-tip tweezer recommends it for removing stubble and ingrown hairs. I don't have either of those problems, but I wanted to mention those uses here.
Tweezerman offers a fabulous guarantee. Save your packaging. Tweezerman will re-sharpen your tweezer for free, and replace damaged or dropped tools for half the purchase price. They also will repair bent tips for a modest fee of $5.00. There are no shipping and handling charges! The address for returns is on your package.
The price of a Tweezerman is not cheap. They run somewhere around $20.00 and can be found at Sally Beauty Supply Stores, Walgreens Drugstores, and many other places where beauty implements are sold.
