Beauty Fixation Pre-Tweeze Treatment

Hair removal isn’t exactly the sexiest process, and it’s made worse by ouch-induced tears and angry red bumps. Avoid both with this pre-tweezing and waxing treatment. Each single-use swab is filled with a solution that has both germ-busting and pain-relieving qualities. We’ll cheer for that.

Didn't Work

I wax my eyebrows generally, but I do tweeze to fix them. I tried this product and it did not numb AT ALL! I would not recommended it, and would advise people to not use it.

I am a hair dresser/ esthetician at a salon, and I know a lot of the "tricks of the trade". (I have my cosmetology license in NJ). A good tip is for people who tweeze is to get a hot towel and place it over your eyebrows for at least 30seconds BEFORE you tweese. The hot water helps to open you pores allowing the tweezeing to be less painful and helps have the hair come out easier. After tweezeing, if you get red, use aloe vera or a cooling gel (safe for facial use) to help reduce the redness; a cold pack/ ice works great too! ALSO, applying pressure helps reduce the pain as well.

Not worth it
Sampled

The product packaging is nice and convenient, but these did absolutely nothing for me. I didn't feel any different while waxing and plucking my eyebrows after using these than I do when I don't use them.

Didn't work

For me I did not notice any numbing effects. It is a good idea, but for what it was supposed to do, it just failed.

Did not really work. It was not all it was hyped up to be. I tweeze daily and so I didn't notice much difference

It's numbing? That's news to me!!
Sampled

It did not numb at ALL. I can't really tell if it does well as an antiseptic seeing as I have no way to actually test that out.. But as far as I can tell, it has NO effect on my tweezing experience, therefore is completely useless. The theory behind it is lovely, but apparently, the execution needs a little work.

No Numbness For Me!
Sampled

I used one of these applicators before tweezing my eyebrows. It cleaned off the area which was nice but there was no numbing sensation for me what so ever. I even waited a couple of minutes for it to take affect and nothing. So I wouldn't be buying this product.

Dosen't Work
Sampled

I have used these a few times and to me they just don't work. I have tried letting it set for different lengths of time and nothing seems to work. It dosen't make the tweezing process any less painful.

i was allergic
Sampled

I'm allergic to many many things, so I wasn't utterly shocked when I read that I was allergic to one of the ingredients. I did try it, to see what it was like, but I did have a reaction and it stung my tweezable areas.
Perhaps i'll use this on my boyfriend...

Adorable but useless?
Sampled

The Pre-tweeze treatment has adorable package design and I love the little Q tips that you snap but the serum itself did nothing for me.
