I never thought tweezers could really be that big of a deal, (tweezers are tweezers, right?) but really, these tweezers are good! Makes plucking my eyebrows faster because it is so much easier to get those little fine, blonde hairs that I have. And you can send them in to get "sharpened" or whatever so you never need to buy another pair. Sounds dumb, but Tweezerman tweezers are worth the extra money, in my opinion.
