The Tinkle Razor For A Peach Fuzz Free Face - Really!
Okay, so we all know what it like to have that peach fuzz on our faces that seem to be even more noticeable when we put our makeup on, not to mention the lady tache. Well, we may have found the answer to our hairless dreams! Enter the Tinkle Razor. No, stop laughing, that is really what it’s called.
I am fortunate to have very, fair hair and skin, so my own peach fuzz is less noticeable than most people’s. However, that said, I still notice my furry face, especially after applying makeup and especially in photos. I was very reluctant to do anything about this as I had read all the rumors about shaving and your hair growing back thicker, darker etc. than before and I didn’t want to resemble a yeti, but it still bothered me. Also as I get older my upper lip seems to sprout more hair than it ever did - why is that? So, when I was sent the Tinkle Razor to try I was a little dubious to say the least.
So, what exactly is the Tinkle Razor. First off, I have no idea why they decided to call it the Tinkle Razor. It seems a very odd choice of name, but each to their own. The pack actually contains three razors in different pastel shades: yellow, green and pink. It is actually packaged as an eyebrow razor. On the company website they retail for $7.99 USD per pack, but by buying multiple packs you save money (and shipping). For instance, five packs will cost $34.99. The company do not sell on Amazon, these are the real authentic brand which is hard to find other than on their website Tinkle Your Face
I was wary of these to say the least and decided to try it out on one side of my face only, just to start with. The instructions state
“Do this on a dry and makeup free face. Pull the skin taut, and then slowly start shaving downward on your skin in short strokes. You can't just drag the razor against your skin. Hold the razor at a 45-degree angle against the skin.”
So following these instructions, I proceeded to shave my face and I have to say I was shocked at how much peach fuzz was hanging off the blade after just a few strokes. Even though the hairs are tiny and for me, very blonde, there was a whole ton of them, who knew. The blade never once cut me or made the experience uncomfortable. As long as you remember to keep your skin taut and keep removing the fuzz from the blade all is well. I was so impressed with my initial try that I continued with the rest of my face. I had no major redness or irritation after and I followed up with my usual moisturizer as they suggest.
I was still curious to see if the yeti in me would appear now that I had unleashed the “grow faster, darker, thicker hairs,” but I can honestly say that nearly a week later my face is still baby smooth. On the website it states that some people will need to shave every few days and others less so. I guess I am lucky as I have no major regrowth showing, so I will hopefully need to do this less often than most.
Overall, I am very impressed this inexpensive little tool. I found that it was easy to use and worked really well. When I used this around my brows I perhaps would have prefered a slightly shorter blade, just to be able to get into all the nooks and crannies. This is odd as I mentioned before it is marketed as an eyebrow razor, perhaps it’s just me? So, Tinkle, maybe a slightly shorter blade could be offered for this purpose, but other than that I feel it works really well and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to you.
