What is this; a razor? Since when is it a good idea to shave your eyebrows?

If you look at it - it's obviously for cleaning up strays, etc. - NOT for removing your eyebrows.

It's not new. Trimmers like this one have been popular for a while now.

The one you posted is actually intriguing. I might have to give it a shot. My brows are pretty sparse, but still need occasional shaping. But it's not enough to warrant getting them waxed too often. I'm not good at shaping by plucking, so something like this might do the trick.

I have the one in the original link. I use it to take the peach fuzz off of my face and clean up stray hairs. It works pretty well. I have to wear foundation sometimes and it looks better without the peach fuzz.

I color my eyebrows because it's not that they've gotten sparse, they've just gotten lighter and don't show against my skin. I still use tweezers and a tiny comb to shape my eyebrows.

As far as shaving facial hair, that's pretty much what the dermablading trend is. I doubt people would be paying to have it done if it made the hair grow in thicker or more coarse.

They market it as an "eraser," but is it actually a razor (blade)? I always heard that wasn't recommended, as shaving makes the hair grow back coarser. That may, of course, be an old wives' tale, and presumably if it makes "plucking" this easy, you'd keep it up. But does it pluck or shave?

I shave my eyebrows sometimes. I don't shave them OFF, but to clean up what's growing back in. I also tweeze them, but sometimes when tweezing, the little hairs are hard to get a grip on. So...sometimes I shave them.


I have dark eyebrows...whatever grows in is going to be dark anyway.

Yep. Old wives tale.

It shaves.

I've been using it once a week for several months and my peach fuzz grows back just as thin and soft as ever.

You can get a small epilator if you want to pluck hair from your face, but that's not painless.
