Sales of Tweezerman’s unusual hair removal device are up 361 per cent

With salons shut until 12 April due to the pandemic and many of us unable to get an appointment for weeks after, we’ve had to get creative with at-home hair removal solutions. For facial hair, Tweezerman’s somewhat unusual but effective Smooth Finish Facial Hair Remover has become something of a favourite.

The innovative Smooth Finish Facial Hair Remover has seen a huge 361 per cent increase in sales since the last lockdown. The unique device is shaped in an arch and uses spring coils to gently pluck the hair from the face. It captures hair in a cluster and removes them straight from the root, making the technique more time-effective than using tweezers on each individual hair. 

All you have to do is place the tool on the area of the face you want to remove hair from (such as the chin or top lip), with the flatter side of the spring coil placed on the skin. You then use both hands to twist the handles inwards towards your face, matching the directional arrows and moving in an upward direction going against hair growth. 

The tool is being touted as a top hair removal alternative for sensitive skin, particularly for those who need to avoid harsh chemicals, waxing, and removal creams. 

So far, it’s racked up five-star reviews online from users and most agree it can take a little time to get used to the motion, but once you do, it’s a foolproof technique. 

Facial Hair Remover, £21, Tweezerman

‘So glad I tried this. Great results on the upper lip. Takes a minute to practice but easy to use and really delighted with the results,’ wrote one fan. 

Another shared: ‘This little tool is fantastic! Much quicker and easier than waxing or bleaching. I wish I’d bought one years ago!’

The good news is that the Tweezerman Facial Hair Remover is only £21, so you can afford to give it a try with nothing to lose.
