Micro Tweeze

I have never tweezed or waxed my own eyebrows before, nor have I had the desire to. However, I was getting fed up with paying $10 a pop at the salon! Plus, I was never happy with how they did it, and it HURT! Who in their right mind pays someone $10 every 2 weeks to inflict pain on them? Haha. Lots of us do. :) 

When Christmas rolled around, my girlfriend bought me this Micro Tweeze Microwaveable Wax. I was scared to try it at first, but I was like "Hmm, they're eyebrows, they'll grow back", and off I went to no-tweezing. The first few times I tried it, I just took a little off at a time. Baby steps. :) Now, I'm confident in waxing and like to try new things. My brows grow back fast, so I can take a lot off and in a week or so they will be a full grown uni-brow again.

Anyway, enough rambling. I'm sure you guys are just dying to see up-close pictures of my funky brows! These aren't the best pictures but they'll do. :)




Now, I'm not gonna lie. This is the first time I've taken more than just a little bit off. I didn't do as well as I usually do, but I'm still happy with the overall result. The picture is an odd angle, but they're really not too uneven. :) I like to connect the pieces of wax, so I can pull them all off at once. If you just rub on one strip, then pull off, then another strip, and pull off, it's going to take a while. So once you get used to it, connect the strips of the hot wax and you can pull all at once. :) 

PROS: It also works for removing hair above your lip. Great directions, easy to use, affordable (pays for itself in two uses!), and works really well.

CONS: I'm impatient and when the wax container is full, it takes a few minutes to heat up in the microwave. Once in a while if you don't apply the wax correctly, you will get a few pieces left over. Make sure you use wax-remover to pull them off or wherever they land WILL remove lots of hair.

OVERALL: This product gets a solid 5 out of 5 stars. Couldn't ask for any improvement. 

When reading other reviews online, it says this works for the bikini area as well. You'll have to let me know how that goes, because I'm not attempting it. ;) If you purchase this item, make sure you buy extra sticks to apply the wax with.

That looks like it'd be a hassle! I have suuuuper stubborn hair, and I wax mine myself all the time with Sally Hansen wax strips. They're the kind that you rub in between your hands to make warm. They're really nice. I like to carry some that I've pre-cut and a mini compact mirror in my purse at all times for those "OMG! When did I become a [facially] hairy beast!" daily moments. You should try those out ^_^ no microwave needed.
