The Tinkle razor is my favorite beauty tool! 😍
Don’t let the silly name fool you – this thing is ALL business! 🙌 If you deal with unwanted facial peach fuzz, random black hairs every other day, or just want smoother skin overall, you’re going to love this product too! In fact, I’ve been using it for over 2.5 years and I’m so excited to tell you all about it!
The Tinkle razor is a single blade razor that you can use to dermaplane your skin at home!
What is dermaplaning? 🤔
Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and even better it removes the vellus hairs (AKA “peach fuzz”) which is notorious for also trapping dirt and oils.
When done correctly, dermaplaning is also a safe and effective way to exfoliate your face. In turn, this allows for more flawless makeup applications, reducing the appearance of acne scars, and makes skin look and feel smoother than ever!
In a nutshell, it’s essentially shaving your face. 😳
Please note: If you have skin concerns or have had skin issues in the past, please consult with your dermatologist before trying dermaplaning on your own. This product and process have worked well for many of us at Hip2Save, though may not be suitable for all skin types.
Now let’s get back to how awesome these Tinkle Razors are! 😍
Bless my grandmother and her fuzzy little face! Through genetics, I not only got her good looks but unfortunately, her peach fuzz too. And I’ve gotta say…I’m not super fond of having peach fuzz (nor are many of the other women I know) so when I learned about the Tinkle Razor, I was quite excited to give it a try! 🤩
I’ve been using mine for almost 2.5 years and I love it so much! As I already mentioned, I really don’t like living with peach fuzz and this thing does just the trick for getting rid of it! Plus, my skin looks so much smoother and my makeup goes on much easier.
To use the Tinkle Razor for dermaplaning at home, here are the steps to follow:
- Start with clean, dry skin.
- Apply a facial oil for a smoother experience. (optional)
- Hold the Tinkle Razor at a 45 degree angle.
- Using gentle motions scrape the dead skin and peach fuzz off your face.
It’s truly that easy! 🙌
You may have to play around with the direction and angle you are holding the blade until you get a feel for it. However, when you are doing it properly, you will see the hairs and dead skin on the blade to know you’re doing it right.
Here’s what my Hip sidekick, Emily said about her Tinkle Razor experience:
“I love the Tinkle razors! They make my skin sooo smooth by getting rid of all the tiny hairs and dead skin cells which helps both my skincare products and makeup go on my face with ease! I also feel like it helps my skincare soak in better which is a major bonus!
It’s completely painless and I’ve never experienced my hair growing in thicker or darker as some people may think. I use mine every 3-4 weeks and the razors last a long time with proper cleaning. I just sterilize the blade with rubbing alcohol and let it dry before storing it away.
I also recommend using a facial oil to help the blade glide over the skin and avoid any risk of cutting or razor burn. Any skin facial oil will do, but I would recommend not using a super expensive one since it basically just gets scraped off. My process is to wash my face, apply the oil in sections and shave, rinse everything off once I’m done, and apply my skincare. I think it’s best to do this at night since the skin can sometimes get a little red after shaving.”
Worried about your hair growing back?
Vellus hairs or “peach fuzz” does not grow back thicker and darker. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before. As I mentioned a couple of times already, I’ve been using the Tinkle for over 2.5 years and when the hair starts to grow back, mine is still blonde and typical peach fuzz texture.
As many Hip2Save readers have mentioned, if you experience unusual thick and dark hair growth, it could be an indicator of a hormonal imbalance. Of course, if you have any concerns, we always recommend consulting with your doctor first as we are not medical professionals.
P.S…If you decide to give the Tinkle Razor a try, make sure that you purchase a Tinkle and not a Twinkle. Apparently, they are a knockoff, and you don’t want to get the wrong one! 😉
And no, this is not a sponsored post – I just love my Tinkle! 😍
