Japonesque 'Brow' Touch Up Razor Set

Now we all know how popular 'brows' are in the beauty industry today and we all strive to get perfectly groomed eyebrows which can help to de-age us in an instant, when shaped correctly. The brows do frame the whole face so getting them right takes precision and good products. There are many salon treatments that help us to achieve this, but for those interim times when we cannot get to the salon or just want to do them ourselves, then finding good tools to help us is vital. I wrote a blog post here all about HD brows which to date are still my favourite brow products to use and to compliment these I have found the perfect grooming tool.



I recently purchased from Cocktail Cosmetics a fantastic little beauty tool from the brand Japonesque and instantly had to tell you about it. Its a 'Brow Razor Set' for touch ups when needed and is key to keeping those brows nice and tidy. Its brow-mazing!!
Japonesque Brow Touch Up Razor Set 

In the set you receive two brow trimmers, one being a normal blade with a clear plastic casing to protect the blade and the other trimmer has a clear casing that doubles up as a brow/lash comb to shape the brows and comb lashes which is a very clever idea and so handy to have two tools in one. 

Use the trimmer in a gentle, upward motion to get rid of any unwanted hairs around the brows. Especially good for the middle of the brows and great for men to use who may suffer from dreaded mono-brow (never a good look I am afraid gents).
Here the clear casing can be taken off to use the hair trimmer, then put back on to be used as a grooming brush for brows and lashes. 

WARNING! THE BLADE IS VERY SHARP SO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN USING IT AND DONT BE TOO HEAVY HANDED. IT CAN BE VERY DECEPTIVE JUST HOW SHARP AND ACCURATE THIS TRIMMER CAN BE! 

I also recommend using a soothing cream afterwards to calm the area as like waxing the skin can be slightly sensitive afterwards.

This is just fantastic at getting those fluffy fine hairs around the brows that cannot be tweezed out but you often see when under a bright light (so annoying). Just don't go crazy with this and stick to the outer areas of the brows. I got a bit carried away when using this for the first time as I underestimated the sharpness of blade and lets just say I am waiting for a certain patch to grow back! It really is fantastic though and can highly recommend this tool if you want very precise, tidy eyebrows. This is the only product that I currently own from Japonesque and probably not the last after finding this beauty gem.
