I am super excited about this post because I think I have found one of the coolest gadgets I have ever purchased!!
This is one of those topics that no one likes to discuss openly but a lot of us women have issues with, hair. As I have gotten older I notice that I have more hair on my face o_O I don't know if it is hormones, ethnicity or a combination of both but it has become an increasing problem. I used to go regularly to have my face waxed but that can get expensive. I learned how to thread my own face and that has been my current method of removal, until I saw an ad for this spring tool that removes hair and is much like threading.
Here are my thoughts, so far.
This is before, bare face.
As you can see I am pretty furry ;) The hair isn't dark but there is plenty of it.
Here is after with makeup applied
There is still some hair but not nearly as much as before.
The process itself was pretty easy to learn, I picked it up in about 5 minutes.
I didn't do this but I am sure this will help open the pores.
This was the tricky part.
You have to keep the tool in the upside down "U" shape and close to the skin.
Now roll your thumbs out and gently roll the spring up. It will take a few times to get into a groove.
Seems easy enough, right?
Questions I got asked on FB or by friends:
1. Does it hurt?
A: I am used to facial waxing and threading so for me, in general, no. I barely noticed it most of the time. I did remove hair along my upper lip and that was sensitive but that is a pretty sensitive spot anyway. Overall, the pain was tolerable. I tried using this on my husband's facial hair LOL It totally worked but he found it to be painful. Men aren't as tolerable to some beauty regimens ;)
2. Was it easy to use?
A: Yes. I didn't watch any "how to" videos prior to using this tool. I read the directions and that was that. I literally picked it up in less than 5 minutes.
3. Is there stubble once it starts to regrow?
A: I haven't noticed any stubble yet and it has been 3 days since I have used this product. I will keep an update going, probably weekly for a month, for those of you that are interested.
4. Did it cause breakouts?
A: I did breakout a little, super small pimples on my cheek area, but I have sensitive skin. I used to break out with waxing and threading as well. That is just my skin type. I would assume it is different for everyone though.
5. Can you use it on your eyebrows?
A: Yes, but I would suggest you tape off the area you DON'T want to be removed. LOL I learned that the hard way ;) LOL I also lost a few eyelashes because they got in the way. Use caution ;)
6. Where did you purchase it?
A: I got the Twist N Roll Tweezers on Amazon for $12 shipped, from a company called Las Vegas World Company Brand Center. If you search "twist n roll tweezers" you will get many different seller options.
When I used to wax my face, I always had to wait a day or so after to apply foundation because my foundation wouldn't adhere to my skin like normal. I didn't have that problem with the twist n roll tool. I can't wait to try it with my airbrush machine! I always had a problem with facial hair showing up when I used my airbrush machine :(
When I learned to thread my own face, it took a while to get the angles right and not seem awkward, not a problem with twist n roll.
To clean, wipe with a damp cloth and then spray with alcohol to disinfect.
I haven't found anything negative about this product yet.
If you have any other questions please ask :)
