My mum picked me up this cute little gift a few weeks ago – LA Tweez Pro Illuminating Tweezers. I thought I would blog about it since I have used it almost every day since I received it.
First, a little look.
The tweezers is the same quality as my Tweezerman version, which you know I love. The angled tips make plucking a doddle and pretty painless in comparison to the average tweezers.
The LED light is fantastic precision. However, two words of caution are necessary. One, plucking in a magnified mirror with the aid of a light means you are much more likely to over-pluck. Two, if you have photo-sensitive migraine you may want to avoid using the light – I plucked my brows for 3-4 minutes and within one hour I had visual disturbance that signal the start of my migraine attacks (this will only be a problem for those who’s migraine’s are triggered by light).
I like the packaging, it’s sturdy and well made. It’s perfect to throw in your handbag and ideal for travelling. It’s easy to see why this product won two beauty awards in 2010.
All in all, a huge thumbs up from me – I’ll just be avoiding the LED light!
My mum bought mine in duty free but I checked their website and they seem to be stocked by Boots, Sephora, Harvey Nichols, CVS, British Airways… basically, they’re widely available. They cost around €20 / £15.32 / $24.
