Tinkle Eyebrow Razor
We put the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor to the test after receiving a complimentary sample from the brand. Keep reading for our full product review.
While thick, bold brows are in at the moment, when I was a teenager in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, bushy brows could not have been more uncool. While I was blessed with moderately thin eyebrows, there was still a lot of maintenance involved. I wasn’t just plucking at stray hairs, I was trying to make them thinner, or begging my parents to give me money to get them waxed.
Thankfully, super-thin brows are no longer in fashion, and I look back at all that plucking and cringe—not just because my eyebrows looked awful, but because all that plucking hurt. Once thin eyebrows went out of style, I packed away my tweezers, canceled my waxing appointments, and let my eyebrows grow out, stray hairs and all. Sure, things got a little unruly at times, but I couldn’t be bothered by it.
When I got the opportunity to try the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor, I was excited and a little nervous, too: I cut myself shaving pretty much every time I shave my legs, so I wasn’t optimistic about my skills with an eyebrow razor. But if it was a path to easier brow maintenance, I was willing to try.

About My Eyebrows: Nicely shaped and a little unruly at times
My eyebrows have a nice natural shape that’s well-suited to ever-changing eyebrow trends—they’re not too thin and not too thick. Of course, I deal with a lot of stray hairs, especially at the bottom of my brows, and while I can easily get rid of them with some light plucking, I haven’t bothered much lately. It always just felt like more trouble than it was worth.
The Look: Tall, thin, un-intimidating, and pastel-colored
The Tinkle Eyebrow Razors come in a pack of three pastel shades—yellow, mint green, and pink. While these razors have an un-intimidating look to them (how can anything that comes in pastel shades possibly harm you?), they are razors, and they come with a plastic cover for safety purposes.
The Feel: Light and mostly easy to wield
The Tinkle Eyebrow razor is incredibly light and thinner than a pen, making it easy to wield. I don’t have much of a problem when working on my right eyebrow, but my left eyebrow is another story—because I’m not left-handed, the process is a bit shaky, and I have a harder time grooming my left brow with my right hand.
The Results: Shockingly good
As I said, the thought of using a razor to groom my eyebrows was a little bit terrifying to me. I read the instructions three times before attempting it and even watched a few instructional YouTube videos. I somehow avoided cutting myself—and in the times I’ve used it since, have still not cut myself—and my eyebrows looked a lot better, no tweezers required.
Once I got up the courage to apply a little shaving cream, take a deep breath, and use the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor, I was shocked by how easy it was.
The process of using the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor wasn’t perfect, though. I found it hard to seamlessly get rid of the stray hairs under my brow and ended up taking out my razor to pluck a few. Another issue with shaving your eyebrows: New hairs grow in the same way any shaved hair grows in, meaning it’s a bit stubbly, which is not ideal.
I also don’t love that I have to use shaving cream. I don’t keep shaving cream in the house—I’m all about lathering up soap in place of shaving cream—but I didn’t feel confident enough in my soap-lathering abilities to attempt using an eyebrow razor sans shaving cream. Maybe as I get more comfortable using it I will be, but as of now, I’m still applying shaving cream to my eyebrows, which isn’t my favorite thing.
The Value: Very affordable
At $5 for three razors, there’s no question that the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor is a very inexpensive tool. The most inexpensive pair of tweezers I can find on Amazon is over $5, and waxing or microneedling is a much more expensive way to maintain brows. Believe it or not, there are more inexpensive eyebrow razors available—I found a three-pack for $2—but I don’t think $5 is too high a price to pay for easy brown maintenance.
Similar Products: There are a lot of brow razors out there
Schick Hydro Silk Touch-Up Facial Razor ($5): Similar to the Tinkle razors, this tool glides easily over skin, removing any peach fuzz or unwanted hairs.
While I still find the concept of an eyebrow razor intimidating, the Tinkle Eyebrow Razors were very easy to use. Since I’m naturally very lazy when it comes to brow maintenance, this is a great way for me to do a quick, inexpensive, pain-free cleanup job—and I’m so glad to know it exists.
