Product Review: Tweeze the Automatic Tweezer

Hi shopping kaki! :D

As promised in my teaser post, we'll be releasing the product reviews on
five must-have beauty products
- starting today! :)

Product: Emjoi Tweeze

In the package: Tweeze and a small toothbrush thingamajig which helps clean out the hairs :)
Two AAA batteries required, but not included.

Where to buy?
Supermodel's Secrets

What's the price?

RM49 - including Pos Laju
Under RM50 for this cool gadget, definitely a reasonable price!

Why should I hurry and buy this?
It's extremely limited! With 30 pieces already sold out, it's that popular!
10 pieces are arriving 30 April - so if you place your order now, you'll be sure to get one! :D
Supermodel's Secrets will be stocking a different kind of automatic tweezer after that,
one which is possibly better but about RM10 more expensive.

But first things first ...
What in the world is a Tweeze?

Basically, it's an automatic tweezer - instead of plucking out unwanted hair manually (lol!),
you just use Tweeze to tweeze the hairs out automatically for you :D

Common body areas the Tweeze is suited for:
face, legs, underarms, navel area and the bikini line.

For an idea of how it works, watch the made-for-TV ad for Tweeze on YouTube:

My Personal Tweeze Experience

First Impressions
First off, the packaging impressed me. I half-expected something wrapped in brown paper with "Made In China" signs stamped on the back, but this looked like a genuinely legitimate and proper product. The size is also really small, light and travel-friendly. Plus it can be used for both men and women! :D It would make a really great gift, too.

I've never bought anything electronic online before, gripped by paranoid fears like, "What if the item is a total dud and doesn't work?" - and I figured if I had worries like that, others might too. So it's great that the patient and lovely Michelle Chuah from Supermodel Secrets sent a Tweeze over for me to experiment with! :D (She also sent our Guest Blogger instant eyeshadow, bra clips and bumpits to write about, so you'll be enjoying those product reviews soon!)

I Strongly Recommend This Cautionary Step
However, there was something wrong with my Tweeze - some design was flawed in the plastic mould that held the batteries, so it took quite a few attempts before the machine "connected" with the batteries and came to life. Luckily it did work in the end - but so that you don't have to go through the panic that me (and Michelle!) went through, I would highly recommend that you ask Supermodel's Secrets to test your product (i.e. put batteries in and switch it on to make sure it can work) before posting it to you.

Although this means your package will be opened (it can always be stapled back or something), Michelle is a totally trustworthy seller - and this will save you any potential hassle of having to send the faulty item back and exchange for a new one, etc! :) It's just like how you would test out your lightbulbs in IKEA before bringing them back home.

Does Tweeze really work?
The short answer is: "Yes, it does!"
The long answer is: It doesn't work as "magically" as it is painted to be in the YouTube advertisement (duh, haha!) but it works to:
  • remove 80% of hair - you still need an old-fashioned tweezer to get rid of the remaining 20%, but that's already saved you a lot of time! :D
  • the hair really doesn't grow back for a few weeks (at least 2 weeks!)
Is Tweeze really painless?
The short answer: "Well, it's not painful!"
The long answer: It's not as painful as waxing or manual tweezing - but there is a sort of plucking sensation that can't quite be described as "pain" - it's just a "sensation". Hehe. But don't worry, it's not painful. The loud whirring sound of the Tweeze might scare you at first (it sure scared me!) but its bark is fiercer than its bite :P

It sounds too good to be true! Are there any flaws?
The thing is, this is a single-epilator (like one tweezer) instrument so logically, it is slower than more expensive, high-end multi-epilator ones. It also takes patience - or maybe practice makes perfect. :) It also works much better on smaller surface areas, e.g. underarms easier than legs.

But the Tweeze is still the best hair removal gadget!
It's much better for your skin than hair removal creams - no chemicals involved here! :) It's better than a shaver or razor because the Tweeze pulls out the hairs from the roots - over time, the hairs won't grow back at all. :D Yay!

Don't use the Tweeze for too long at one session - Michelle says it can go on continuously for 20 minutes, but I think stopping it every 10 minutes is a safer bet. Call me overly cautious, but it's always better safe than sorry - but like a hair straightener, you wouldn't want to overheat your Tweeze! :) Plus you need to stop for a few seconds to clean out the hairs anyway (with the little toothbrush that comes with the Tweeze). Remove the cap and clean out both the cap and the Tweeze.
