Tweeze is an automatic tweezer system that’s claimed to use patented “magnet technology” to automatically find, grasp, and remove hair at the root, quickly and painlessly. In fact, Tweeze’s manufacturer claims it’s “virtually impossible to miss a hair,” while being 30X faster than traditional tweezing.
And because Tweeze’s technology leaves behind nothing by soft, silky skin, it’s claimed to be ideal for all parts of your body, including lips, chin, bikini, arms, and legs, without the use of blades.
Sure, keeping certain areas of your body hair-free is a pain (literally and metaphorically). But can Tweeze provide you with some relief, and is it worth the money? Consider the following:
Electronic Tweezers Are Common
First, keep in mind that electronic tweezers are nothing new, despite how Tweeze’s manufacturer might make it appear otherwise. In fact, you can see just how common they are by typing “electronic tweezer” or “automatic tweezer” into your favorite search engine.
Electronic tweezers are so commonplace that you’re also likely to find one at a local retailer, which could help you save a ton of money in S&H changes and make the return process easier if you’re dissatisfied (more about this in the Pricing section).
Is Tweeze Really Painless?
Although Tweeze is claimed to remove hair without pain, since it’s pulling hair from the root, we’re calling the manufacturer’s bluff here. While Tweeze’s technology may pull hair faster, which might slightly reduce any associated pain, it almost certainly won’t remove the pain altogether.
Also, just like when you tweeze last-minute before going out for the evening, Tweeze will almost certainly leave behind swelling and/or redness in areas, so keep this in mind before applying makeup.
Can Tweeze “Grab” Hair from Any Angle?
Other than a quick 3D representation Tweeze’s “patented technology,” we’re not provided any additional information about how it can grab hair at any angle. However, the ASOTV industry isn’t exactly known for implementing breakthrough technology in its products, so Tweeze may not work as well as the manufacturer makes it seem.
Will Tweeze Keep You Stubble-Free for Weeks?
Finally, as we mentioned in our Hair Removal Buyer’s Guide, how fast your hair grows back depends heavily on the texture of your hair and your personal hair growth cycle. With this said, after plucking, most people experience hair regrowth within 2 to 8 weeks, so Tweeze may not last as long as the manufacturer claims.
Customer Feedback for Tweeze
Tweeze was a very new product at the time of our research, so there were no online customer reviews available.
However, Tweeze is brought to you by Tristar Products, one of the largest manufacturers in the “As Seen on TV” industry. As such, Tristar makes a wide variety of popular ASOTV products, including Clear TV, Flex-Able Hose, Power Pressure Cooker XL, and more.
Among more than 800 HighYa reader reviews for these products, they have an average rating of 2 stars, with common complaints referencing failure to work as advertised, poor quality, and difficult customer service experiences. Granted, you may not experience any of these with Tweeze, but it’s something to keep in mind nonetheless.
Finally, Tristar Products holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau based on nearly 1,000 closed complaints (as of 5/6/15). Most of these appear to mirror the same concerns noted above.
Tweeze Pricing & Refund Policy
One Tweeze electronic tweezer is priced at $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H, although you’ll be able to purchase a second unit for an additional $7.99 S&H at checkout.
Each Tweeze order also includes Smooth Vanish hair growth inhibitor cream.
All Tweeze orders come with a 60-day refund policy/warranty, less S&H charges.
Important note: If you decide to process a return, you could end up losing more in S&H charges than you’ll receive as a refund, especially if you purchased the BOGO offer. In fact, if you process a warranty claim, not only will you have to ship your Tweeze back to the manufacturer, you’ll also have to pay $7.99 to have them send you a new one.
With this said, in order to request a refund or process a warranty claim, you’ll need to contact customer service at 973-287-5171.
Is Tweeze Your Best Hair Removal Option?
Chopping to the point: Because Tweeze is such a new product without any online customer reviews, it’s difficult to gauge overall satisfaction levels, although most ASOTV products come with lower consumer reviews.
Considering this, as well as the fact that you’ll almost certainly be able to find similar options from mainstream manufacturers, we might recommend exploring local options before placing your Tweeze order.
