Until Christmas, I always used slanted tweezers that I bought from my local pharmacy. They were nothing special, and I have wanted a pair of Tweezermans for a long time, but I could never commit myself to paying over £20 for a pair of tweezers, no matter how good they are.
Luckily for me, one of my mum's oldest friends who buys me a Christmas present every year got me these tweezers by Two's Company:
I had never heard of Two's Company before and I imagine they will be unfamiliar to most people. However, they are absolutely amazing. They grip really tightly, pulling each hair out from the root to avoid that annoying dot of hair that remains after using poor quality tweezers. They also come in a variety of different doll patterns, which is not useful in any way but adds some novelty value if you are that way inclined.
I tried to find an official website or Twitter page belonging to Two's Company but they don't seem to own either. They should probably address this asap. However, here is a website where you can buy a pair of your own for only £3.99. Step aside Tweezerman.
For some reason my eyebrows look rather evil here, I hope this is not really the case.
