Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)
And while we’ve written before about the best beauty and grooming tools to buy online — including the best women’s razors, the $8 beard trimmer that one writer uses on her bikini line, and an easy-to-use laser hair remover — here we’ve rounded up the best tweezers, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers at Ulta Beauty.
One reviewer, who claims to “have tweezed the brows of literally hundreds of people using classic Tweezerman slant tweezers,” says, “There is a reason that these are considered an industry standard for tweezers. It is because anything less would simply be unacceptable!” Shoppers praised these tweezers’ ability to grasp even small, hard-to-see hairs. “Grabs even my lightest lashes that I can’t see,” says one. Another, who calls these the “best and easiest to use tweezers,” writes, “I love the slant tip as it makes it easier for me to grab those little hairs and get them the first time.” And even though the price is higher than some of the other tweezers on this list, shoppers say it was worth it. “Why did I wait so long to buy these? Because of the price. Was it worth it? Most definitely,” writes one. “I don’t know I didn’t splurge sooner. Would have saved me from so much brow hair stress.”
Best-rated (less expensive) tweezers
These tweezers work so well that one shopper found that when she lent them to friends, the tweezers would just disappear. “I’ve been using these for decades!” she writes. “But people keep taking them because they’ll try them out and then they surprisingly come up missing. I think next time I’m buying them in bulk so I have extra to go ‘missing.’” Reviewers praised the quality of these for the low price. “These work like the expensive ones,” a shopper writes. Another says, “The tweezers didn’t cost much, but they work amazing. I’ve been using some cheap tweezers for years and they pull my skin and don’t grip the hair, but these work so much better. I love them.”
And now some micro-picks for every type of tweezer you might be looking for.
Best tweezers for plucking hair
For another less expensive pick, these Revlon slant tip tweezers have nearly 500 five-star reviews. “I like how it was cheaper and still good quality,” writes one customer. “I don’t play about this chin hair. The wrong tweezers will mess me up. Happy with these since my ridiculously expensive pair came up missing.” Shoppers called these “sturdy,” “long lasting,” and “the best tweezer I’ve ever tried,” especially for plucking hair. One writes, “I took a chance on these and I’m glad I did. These tweezers will pick up super-fine hairs, as well as the thick, coarse ones. Long gone are the days of picking at the same hair seven times and breaking it at the surface leaving a black dot. These tweezers grab everything and more on the first try. They’re comfortable to hold and look very expensive and sleek. Will definitely buy again if I ever feel like they’re giving out (I don’t see it happening for a long time!).”
Best travel tweezers
“Always traveling and of course always forget something,” one shopper writes. “I can just keep this mini tweezer in my purse so it is always with me.” Another says, “I travel a lot and packing space is limited so this smaller version of Tweezerman was perfect!” Reviewers say they’re also great for everyday, on-the-go tweezing. “I’m one of those women that get about three or four chin hairs that come in once a week if I don’t have the tweezers I’m in trouble,” writes one shopper. “No one else can see them but me, but I can feel them so I live for this product.”
Best tweezers with case
The case was a big selling point for these Tweezerman tweezers. One reviewer writes, “The travel pouch for the tweezers is so useful. I won’t have to search my entire apt looking for my tweezers now that they have a home.” Another says, “Love the little case, easier to keep better track of them.” And, like the other Tweezerman tweezers on this list, they were praised by shoppers for reaching every hair. “These tweezers get the smallest of hairs on the first try. They will change your tweezing life forever. I have given these away as gifts to 7 different people,” says one reviewer. Shoppers also love that—like all Tweezerman tweezers—these can be sent back to Tweezerman for sharpening. “Tried many, truly the best, and can send back for sharpening,” comments one.
