What Is Flawless Dermaplane Glo?

By Mary Ivanov

Published on: Jul 29, 2019

Flawless Dermaplane Glo by Finishing Touch claims to achieve a professional exfoliation, at home, using high-quality stainless steel construction and an LED light so you don’t miss a spot while dermaplaning your face and neck.

Targeted towards women, you use the Dermaplane Glo not only remove dead skin, but also the peach fuzz along the side of your cheeks, neck and other areas on your face.

Also, you can use Flawless Dermaplane Glo anywhere on your chin, neckline, cheeks, and/or forehead.

According to the website, you will be able to see results from the very first use and “instantly transform your complexion.”

Dermaplane Glo is made by Ideavillage Products Corporation, a company operating since 1999. They have many retail partners where they say they sell useful, everyday products to the market at affordable prices.

As we more closely assess Finishing Touch’s Flawless Dermaplane Glo, we will see if dermaplaning can be done from home by a similar tool used by professionals without causing damage to the skin.

How Does Flawless Dermaplane Glo Work?

Flawless Dermaplane Glo is made up of three parts.

The main handle is a contoured wand designed to be easy for you to hold while dermaplaning. The second part is a stainless steel blade made from Japanese steel. The last part is a built-in LED light, which helps you see any spots you may have missed.

Most sites we looked at raved on how well makeup applies to your skin after a dermaplane treatment. Because the main cause of makeup not looking flawless is the fact that powder-based makeups, especially, sit right on top of your skin’s surface, which is full of tiny hairs and dead skin.

The device’s site did not have explicit directions on how to dermaplane your face at home, so we looked on YouTube for instructions on how to dermaplane.

After researching dermaplaning tutorials, it turns out to be pretty simple even though methods vary. Either way, you should always begin with cleansed skin, free of makeup.

The simple technique is using the blade at a 45-degree angle while holding the skin taut, and in either short upward or downward strokes glide the blade along your face until you see the dead skin cells and little hairs gather.

You then clean the blade and repeat along the desired areas of the face-cheeks, forehead, chin, and neck. Make sure you don’t go over the same skin surface twice, as you’ve already removed the dead skin.

Safety Tips for Dermaplaning at Home

A few video tutorials on YouTube pointed out that it is best to have some sort of cream or serum on your face when dermaplaning at home, to prevent any knicks or running the blade along tight, dry skin.

Other tutorials actually stress having dry skin when dermaplaning, and that any creams would lessen the effectiveness of the blade in removing the dead skin.

Most of the tutorials did give the option of using the blade in upward or downward strokes, and all of them stressed the importance of keeping the skin taut while dermaplaning, to avoid cutting yourself.

A common misconception is that the use of a blade on your face will cause the “peach fuzz” type hair to grow back thicker, however, this is minimal, and most women see hair growth return the same as before.

Also, while dermaplaning, you should avoid areas under the eyes and around the nose, as this skin is much softer and could be cut a lot easier.

Our research also showed that a dermaplane treatment should only be done once a week, not any more frequently.

Also, an important thing to note is that dermaplaning should never be done on skin with active acne or rosacea, as this can cause bleeding and further irritation.

How Much Does Flawless Dermaplane Glo Cost?

Our research indicates professional dermaplaning treatment can cost roughly $75 to $150. Therefore, gaining the skill to do a treatment at home, as described above, can be a cost-effective skill.

The Flawless Dermaplane Glo costs $19.99, which comes with an included wand and 6 replacement heads and free shipping. This setup should last seven weeks if you dermaplane weekly.

Returns are for orders made online or by phone only. A 60-day money-back guarantee is shown on the website, but it does not include shipping.

The return address is:

Flawless Dermaplane Glo
400 Returns Rd.
Wallingford, CT 06494

The return must include your complete name, address, daytime telephone number, and email address on the inside of the return package.

How Does The Dermaplane Glo Compare To Other Dermaplaners?

You have plenty of options when it comes to at-home dermaplaning kits.

After researching the market we chose to look at a couple of mid-range-priced dermaplane tools, as the razors are better quality and can produce an overall better result without fear of cutting your face with a cheap razor blade.

The Spa Science Pink SIMA from Target costs $39 and doesn't seem to be available in-store nationwide, so ordering online is probably easiest.

By using sonic vibrations, this dermaplaning device has the option of three-speed settings which can expedite the dermaplaning procedure.

The Pink SIMA comes with enough replacement blades for seven weekly treatments and claims to be safe to use for all skin types. It also comes with a rechargeable USB cord, so you don’t need to worry about replacing batteries.

Target.com customers rate the Spa Science Pink SIMA with a 4.4 out of 5 stars with some comments being that it, “works great,” is an “exceptional product,” and is “so easy to use.”

The second alternative is StackedSkincare’s Dermaplaning Tool, a simple wand with a razor that goes for $75 on amazon.com.

This tool is a bit more expensive than other available dermaplaners, though one blade can be used for a month. A three-pack of blade refills costs. $23.50.

The StackedSkincare Dermaplaning Tool has a unique ridge on its blade which is supposed to provide “maximum contact” with the skin’s surface, while simultaneously protecting the skin from being damaged.

Customers on amazon.com give the StackedSkincare Dermaplaning Tool a 3.7 out of 5 stars, with some comments stating it was, “worth the price,” with a “measurable difference,” and “saves me on aesthetician visits.”

On the other hand, a few negative comments stated that the expectations for this product were quite high but the results were basically the same as cheaper dermaplaning tools.

Additionally, another complaint was that the replacement razors were not as good quality as the blade that comes in the original wand, which seems rather surprising.

Overall, with so many options when it comes to finding a good dermaplaning device, it seems that just because the cost is more expensive doesn’t mean the quality of the razor will be significantly better.

The Flawless Dermaplane Glo features a really decent price and the additional benefit of an LED light, which neither of the above-mentioned dermaplaners have.

Another bonus of the Flawless Glo is that it is half the cost, or even more, compared to the competing higher-end dermaplaners.

The Bottom Line on Flawless Dermaplane Glo

In our opinion, dermaplaning is an accessible method of performing exfoliation from home.

However, if you have never had a dermaplaning treatment done, it is highly recommended to first go to a professional who can do the treatment properly, and give you tips on how to use the tool and perform the treatment on yourself at home.

When it comes to causing damage to your skin when dermaplaning at home, you should always be extra cautious using the device around the eyes and nose.

It should also be stated once again that anyone with severe skin sensitivity, acne or rosacea should avoid dermaplaning altogether.

Once you begin to get a handle on the process, customer reviews we read agree that dermaplaning is actually quite simple, and can be done fairly quickly and easily at home.

If you want to achieve healthier, less-clogged skin that will improve the absorption of moisturizing products, we believe there’s a good chance using the Finishing Touch Dermaplane Glo on a weekly basis can help you attain smoother skin and assist in the “flawless” application of makeup for less than what it costs to go to a professional.

Impossible from the get-go

By Delphine d., Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Verified Reviewer

Couldn't manually remove the battery cap. Had to pry it open with the edge of a letter opener. Then couldn't insert the battery until I had prodded the spring repeatedly to loosen it up. It took great effort to squeeze the battery in. Who knows what happens when the battery runs flat.

Terrible product

By Rochelle S., Cape Coral, FL, Verified Reviewer

I've had Dermaplaning done at my salon on several different occasions and thought this would be a chance for me to do this myself even if it wasn't perfect. Turns out that after following directions perfectly and trying it 3 times...does not work. It's a ridiculous waste of money.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not working

By Sue M., Kansas City, MO, Verified Reviewer

Purchased it at Walgreens. Turned it on once it worked, second time it's dead and not working. Should have read the reviews first! Changed battery, head of the wand and it's still not working. How do I get a replacement or my money back?

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It is crap! Useless piece of junk!

By Lynda M., Alabama, Verified Reviewer

It is crap! Does not work or remove hair or peach fuzz on your face! Like it showed in the commercial. Does not have a motor or anything. The battery is only for a light. So disappointed! This is definitely a scam and nowhere does it say a refund for dissatisfied customers. A rip-off! I want my money back! It's made in China and just like everything else from China is a scam!

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Mary O., Minneapolis, MN, Verified Reviewer

Wish I had seen the reviews before purchasing this today. I just used it and use a 10x magnifying mirror and the thing doesn't remove the hair or "peach fuzz" at all. Everyone, once in a while it may take off a piece of hair but yeah...reach is a huge disappointment.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Eileen R., Cartersville, GA, Verified Reviewer

I have always loved all of your Flawless products, but I have to say the Dermaplane product is terrible! I expected it to rotate like the others, I actually thought it was broken at first when only the light came on. It doesn’t exfoliate, it scratches, even when you're barely going over your face. It isn’t smooth and doesn’t even get all the hair off. Just thought you should know.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Did not work

By Cynthia P., Warren, NJ, Verified Reviewer

The Dermaplane Glo tool did not work for me. I used it correctly with short strokes and even watched the tutorial after two times not removing peach fuzz. A tiny tiny bit of fuzz finally came off. Not nearly close to working! I tried to get my money back just after the 60 days and they would not return my money. Mind you this was through Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays...and they count days from the time of order! Very poor Customer Service. They should stand behind their product regardless. I did not rush to use this tool the third and fourth time because it did not work...makes sense to me. But I wanted to give it a fair chance so tried again after looking at tutorial. I hope it works for you if you decide to purchase.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not worth it

By Patricia S., Clearwater, FL, Verified Reviewer

The blades were pretty dull and it took a lot to remove the hair and I doubt it removed any dull skin.

Plus, it caused me to actually breakout and I had no breakouts before use. I will not use it again.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Save your money

By Nancy M., Brownsburg, IN, Verified Reviewer

I have gotten many session of Dermaplane-ing done at salons so I know how this procedure is supposed to go. I thought I would try this and I regret ever purchasing this tool. On the plus side, it does make a nice mini flashlight. The LED light is bright. But the blades are worthless and it did nothing but scrap my face. No dead cells or hair removed. My recommendation is to save your money and go to a salon and have it done professionally.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
