Product Review: Wizzit Autotweezer

Note: I am NOT getting paid or anything for doing this review, I just wanted to share it with fellow glam mamas ;)

Now, all mamas love things that make their lives easier. We also do not have much time to spend on glamming ourselves up. So, in an effort to find time-saving beauty solutions for myself and other glam mamas, I've spent a small fortune bought a few things to try out and review. This will be the first of many reviews, I suspect, so keep checking in!

I've tried various depilating/hair removal tools and services. Shaving, hair removal creams, threading, waxing...I've tried them all, everywhere. I've found some solutions work for certain areas - for example, threading is my preferred method of eyebrow shaping - but I've yet to find something for all areas...that is easy-to-use, fast, discreet, and doesn't involve the hairs growing back the day after. I'll talk about the pros and cons of the different methods one of these days, but for today, I would like to talk about this product I bought recently that I just tried out :)

I bought the Wizzit AutoTweezer from Supermodel Secrets, a local blogshop selling beauty tools at affordable prices. All the stuff you've seen on TV infomercials, you can find there. Anyway, I've been curious about the Wizzit since I first saw the infomercial back in the States, which was like 4 years ago. I never thought about buying it though, till I saw it on SS and figured it was cheaper than getting waxed, and if it works, it would really be value for money.

I just received it today and was so excited that I tried it right away, without bothering to watch the instructional video, hehe! I put the batteries in - it uses 2 AAA batteries - and turned it on. It's not that loud, but not particularly quiet either. Definitely not something I'd use in public or near the kids when they are asleep.

I used it on my upper leg (I just shaved, so no hair from the knee-down) and on my arm. As far as pain goes, it really wasn't painful. You can feel it pulling (tweezing) the hairs out, but its so rapid that you feel just a teeny-weeny pinch.

It took me a while to figure out the best way of using it - Circular movements? Against the hair direction? Up and down along my leg? To be honest, I'm still not sure! Sometimes it plucked out the hairs easily, sometimes not so much. However, I did notice that it pulled out the hairs on my arms a lot easier than the hairs on my upper legs. I think that its because the hairs on my arm are thicker, whereas the hairs on my leg are a lot finer.

I'm looking forward to experimenting with it some more. I like that I can use it while watching TV and stuff, instead of either having to go somewhere to get the hair removed (waxing) or being stuck in the toilet the whole time (shaving, hair removal creams). I've always preferred tweezing, but for large areas like my legs, I just don't have the time to do it anymore!

Basically, I give the Wizzit AutoTweezer 4 stars ****. It did a good enough job but I need to learn how to use it more effectively. This is definitely something I will be using more often - it's painless, time-saving and allows for multi-tasking (I used it just now while breastfeeding and watching TV!).

Hope all you glam mamas found this review useful! Let me know what you think in the comments ;D

Update (Sept 5, 2013): I no longer use the Wizzit AutoTweezer. Instead, I decided to try laser and it works! Nowadays I just tweeze any errant hairs that the lasers didn't get ;) Be sure to check out my other product reviews while you're here! There will be more in the coming week, so be sure to check back. Also, please feel free to suggest (or send, haha) other products you'd like to see me review - if it's something I've been wanting to try (or have already tried), then I'd be happy to review it!
