It’s the review you’ve all been waiting for but never knew you needed! My review of the Finishing Touch Flawless Brows Eyebrow Hair Remover is finally here! You might remember when the pandemic started I had purchased one of these. You know what? It was sort of hard finding one in stock at the time! I guess with all the salon lockdowns everyone was like “Imma buy one of these Finishing Touch Flawless Brows Eyebrow Hair Removers and do my brows at home!” I know I had that mentality because my brows were out of CONTROL! They did grow into one single brow and I did look like the caveman from the Geico commercials (worst).
Finishing Touch Flawless Brows Eyebrow Hair Remover Review seemed like the solution at the time. Here was a little epilator pen that promised to gently remove stray hairs while shaping my brows! Yes, this would totally make me look like a normal person again!
Buh-bye caveman brows!
Uh yeah, so, it didn’t quite work out that way.
I paid $20 at Target and eagerly awaited my package. At the time I was really being super careful what I purchased online as I didn’t want to contribute to making things harder for essential workers but I really did feel like this was essential item. My brows were just a carnage! It was uni-brow glam all day, every day.
I was pretty confident that I could easily whisk away stray hairs and shape my brows with this pen but nope, that didn’t happen.
So, as you can see this is designed like a pen. It has an on and off switch and takes one AA battery to operate. It also has a handy light at the tip making it easy to see the hairs on your brows. The shape, the design, it’s all flawless and a very good idea. It’s just when you actually use it that things don’t turn out so great.
You can’t just sweep this across your brows and expect it to pick up stray hairs. You actually have to move it around your brow bone and upper brow area in small circles. I have a lot of real estate above my brows which should have made this easy to do but for some reason I couldn’t master the smaller circles it needed to work. When I finally did master the method it wasn’t actually removing any hair. I would go over the same area several times and I’d feel a slight pinch but the hair was still there. I dunno if this was because my brows were overgrown AF or if the machine just didn’t work so, I smartly ordered another one and had it shipped to my best friends house. He isn’t nearly as hair as I am in the brow area and I felt like he needed to tested it out to see if it worked for him better than it did for me. We were swapping boxes of snacks and goodies back and fourth all during the pandemic so this felt like a good excuse to pay it forward for his last gift to me and also, to get his thoughts on how this work.
I have bushy brows as we all know that are prone to growing into a unibrow. He has perfect arches and thinner brows. We hopped on FaceTime, compared brows, and went to work. I had a excess hair at the brow bone that needed to be shaped and he had a small bit of stray hairs that could have been easily plucked version using this pen but we needed to see how it worked. I tried the smaller circles and it literally didn’t pick up a single hair. Next we tried him! He proceeded to do a bigger circle (which terrified me as I was concerned he’d splice off part of his outer brow) and still it didn’t pick up any hair. Ok, so, it wasn’t only me experiencing the problem!
Next we headed online to read the reviews. Turns out we aren’t really alone. Some people love it but others felt like it didn’t pick up any hair at all! According to most people you need to go over the same area a few times to see anything removed. I personally did that and so did he but we didn’t notice any change! I swear I’m not giving up on this year. I’ve been trying since April to get it work because I feel like it’s a nice maintenance tool! I mean, even if COVID wasn’t raging around us it feels like this would be handy between waxing or threading just to pick up stray hairs! I wish I could get it to work for me!
Sadly, until now the Finishing Touch Flawless Brows Eyebrow Hair Remover just isn’t doing anything.
Do you have one of these?
Does it work for you?
