Lindo twist-n-roll tweezers


I received two products by Lindo from http://facialwork.com/, which I was very excited to test.
The first is called twist-n-roll tweezers

It came with very simple directions:
  1. Bend into a shape and place the coils against your skin.
  2. Twist the handles outward (so your thumbs roll in toward eachother)
  3. As you twist the coil should roll slowly upward against your skin.
Always keep the coil bent in the shape
There is also a notation: to reduce sensitivity, place a hot towel on the area for a few minutes before use.
It is noted to “Gently remove hair on upper lip, chin, neck, forehead and more.”


Ok, I’ve tweezed and waxed and I’m pretty tolerant of pain.  I am not going to lie to you! It hurts!!! Mind you, my 1st attempt, I did NOT use the hot towel before ‘tweezing’. As you can see, I left myself red, but it was all back to normal in about 10-15 minutes.

After a bit, I realized if you move a little quicker and do small amounts at a time, it isn’t as painful. Remember to keep your skin taught, as you would with regular tweezers. It also became less painful the 2nd time I used it (I also applied the semi-hot towel this time!).
The results are GREAT! Super smooth, no breakouts or anything like that.
I will use it again when the hair grows back and update you on whether the pain is lessened. It definitely saved a lot of time compared to tweezing and you don’t have to use a mirror. I would NOT suggest using it on eyebrows because it grabs a lot of hair and that could just be a disaster!

Twist-n-roll is currently retailing at 14.99 on facialwork.com You can also see a demonstration video there. 
I did come across it on Amazon.com for under $10.
