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 err..hair 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!

  1. OK, question time for me! I've never heard of this before but I find it intriguing but theres some more info I'd love to know.

    #1 - How long does it take? i.e. 5 minutes to shape an eyebrown, 3 minutes for a 10cm square patch?

    #2 - if this were good on coarrser hair, would it be good for a bakini line?

    #3 - Is it easy to shape? It looks like it has a wide head on it and I'd be horrified if i slipped up it would take half my eyebrow off! :)

    Thanks!!

  4. Julie:

    OK, I tried it out some more just now, so here are some answers to your questions:

    1. It really depends on the area. It did not work at all on my eyebrows, because of the angles (of my bone structure). On my arms, a one-inch square patch took about 2 minutes to clear.

    2. I wanted to try it on my bikini line...but the batteries ran out! I don't know why it wore out so quick...maybe I was using it too long? I'll try again tomorrow and let you know.

    3. The Wizzit is basically an automated tweezer, so really it pulls out one hair at a time. The surface area is barely the width of a hair - the rest is just the spinning gears ;)

    Anonymous: I tried it out on the very fine hair on my upper lip and it really worked. Same goes to the very short stubble on my legs - worked like a charm. But the hair has got to be above the surface of the skin - it didn't work on the hairs that are just about to poke out, or in-grown hairs.

    Liza: Definitely worth a try, this one. But I have to check it out again tomorrow, as the batteries ran out far too quickly for my taste. Don't get it till I update with a second review or edit this review k!

  6. Hi im not a really big fan of tweezers. iv never used them on my face, and i was wondering is when the wizzit pulls the hair out does it hurt like a tweezer would.cause i would like to use this product on my upper lip and arms but i wouldn't like it to look red around there like how it would when it gets pinched!

  7. Hi just want to know is it on the lines of an epilator? Because girls said that everytime your grows back it is coarser from using the epilators as compared to hair that comes after waxing.
