today i want to give you all my thoughts on a new product from Tweezerman... their Easy Finish Facial Hair Remover! i saw this while i was at Ulta the other day... i immediately grabbed it and since it retails for $14.99, i was able to use their $3.50 off $10 coupon which it even more affordable.
this tool is marketed as an easy way to remove unwanted facial hair... which i sadly (!!) have copious amounts of. i have polycystic ovary syndrome which means their is loads of testosterone rattling around in my body, which cause a lot of hair on the face! because of this, i am always looking for a better method of removing it. for my face i've tried waxing, threading, a manual spring tool, and epilators... none of them are ideal, and waxing and threading are downright expensive. also, if you're on prescription strength retinol products (which i am) you don't even have the option of waxing! i was really hoping this would be an easy, inexpensive alternative...
the tool is a plastic oval with a tight metal coil at one end... that's it! the directions are to simply roll it on your face, as the coil rotates it should pinch the hairs and pull them out. sadly... that is not how it worked for me AT ALL. i found it difficult to even get the coil to grab the hairs, and when i did, it broke them instead of ripping them out. so for the most part, i now have marginally shorter hairs on my face, but not many got removed.

because of this, i actually returned this product! i rarely return something and do a review on it, but i wanted to warn you guys about this one... definitely not worth the money. actually, i don't think it's worth anything at all. i LOVE Tweezerman products and own loads of them... and am very sad this one is such a bummer.
have you tried the Easy Finish Facial Hair Remover? what was your experience?
Happy Sunday! Ria :)
