Lindo Twist-n-roll tweezers

Hello ladies,

I recently had the chance to experiment with a hair threading tool designed for at home use: Lindo twist-n-roll tweezers. It is a hand operated coil device that removes facial hair from the root. The coil can be rolled over the upper lip, chin, cheeks and forehead to remove hair of varying thicknesses.
Twist-n-roll tweezers has a fairly compact design.
If you click to enlarge the image, the demonstration photo on the packaging gives a clear representation of the product in use.

For those of you who remember the original Epilady that operated with electrically powered rotating coils, Twist-n-roll tweezers will seem like a familiar concept. Twist-n-roll tweezers is a much quieter and gentler way to employ a coil for hair removal.

To use, softly bend the coil into an upside down U shape. You will want to position the coil at the base of the area you have chosen for hair removal. Turn the pink handles outward. Glide the coil upward. The main difficulty I experienced at first was to determine how deep of a bend I needed in the coil and how to angle it appropriately. After a few minutes, I was able to remove hair comfortably.

Before using Twist-n-roll tweezers on your face, I would advise pulling your hair back into a ponytail or using a headband if needed. I only caught a few auburn hairs when experimenting with using Twist-n-roll on my cheeks, but this is wholly avoidable.

Twist-n-roll tweezers does a fine job at removing hair on the upper lip area. I started using it about a week after I had waxed. It has kept the re-growth of hair to a minimum. While Twist-n-roll tweezers won't catch and pull out every hair, it does thin hair significantly enough that most people would find it a sufficient hair removal method.

I also thought it worked well on the fine hair on my cheeks and chin. It removes enough of the fair hair to be noticeable in bright sunlight. This is the first time I have tried to remove hair on my cheeks. I can see how this would be useful for ladies who take close up photos in bright light. Again, it won't remove every hair, but the results are visible.

While the instructions state that you can use Twist-n-roll tweezers over make-up, I achieved a better result when using the coil over clean, dry skin. You can still remove hair when wearing make-up. I just find the coil picks up more hair when there is less oil on the skin.

While no hair removal technique that pulls hair out from the root is pain free, Twist-n-roll tweezers felt more like a hum of sensation. That intense ripping feeling with waxing isn't present because you are pulling smaller amounts of hair with each rotation of the coil. The site recommends using a hot towel as a compress before hair removal, but I didn't need to do so. The sensation of the coil wasn't unpleasant considering its purpose. The feeling is gentler than tweezing because the hair is whisked off the face more quickly.

I feel this is a method I am going to use along with waxing. Since Twist-n-roll tweezers is too large and not precise enough to groom eyebrows, I will still be utilizing my waxing kit, but far less often. When I shape my eyebrows, I will do a touch up waxing on my upper lip.

The twist-n-roll tweezers will thin the hair enough that I technically wouldn't need to wax. I still would like to occasionally have my upper lip waxed completely free of hair. I like the idea of beginning anew and using the twist-n-roll to maintain a clean appearance on my upper lip area.

Twist-n--roll tweezers is a useful device. I love the convenience of being able to remove unwanted facial hair quickly, without the effort required with waxing or the chemical smell associated with depilation. I am glad I had the opportunity to try it and I plan to purchase a replacement when needed.

This product was sent to me for review. Lindo Twist-n-roll tweezers can be purchased from for $14.99. I highly recommend watching the brief video on the site for a full product demonstration.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. Interesting...I might need to pick this up...I could certainly use a quicker method of hair removal haha.

  2. I have a girlfriend who just got one of these. She's loving it. I have it on my short list of things to get.

    Glad to get another point of view too.

  3. I saw this before!!! It sounds so interesting but I'm sooo afraid if it will hurt!

  4. i have one of those, they work wonders!

  5. Aurora's Nails: I love the immediacy with Twist-n-roll. The second I see re-growth I can take care of it.

    Kimberly: I'm happy to be helpful. Twist-n-roll is definitely worth trying out. <3

    ~Lisa: If you feel comfortable with the sensation of plucking hair with tweezers, you will be fine. This feels less intense to me. :)

    Lily: Thanks for sharing. That's awesome! I am glad you are enjoying yours too.

  6. hey
    when will you announce the winner of the giveaway?

  7. maRyya: What's going on right now is my sister is very ill. I am running behind on drawings as well as posting new giveaways and I apologize. I have a cute idea for the next drawing. The first day I see it possible to do a drawing is Tuesday, but then I will need a day or so to go through the photos.

  8. oh, I'm sorry for your sister :(
    i wish her quick recovery
    there's no problem, i'll wait utill you have time to announce the winner
    i'll keep reading your blog!
    have a nice day

  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your sister. It's so awful when a family member is ill. I'll keep her in my prayers. I use an Epilady every day. I'm used to that pulling sensation. I was wondering if this would be any good. It's awful how these hairs sprout everywhere on your face. Ever since having a medically forced change things have changed. All those crazy dark hairs on the chin. Even the Epilady doesn't remove everything. I get ingrown hairs and I hate that. I was hoping this would get them out easier.

  10. Thanks for the review! I would like to give this a try, it looks interesting!
    Sorry to hear about your sister, I hope she gets better.

  11. right now i bleach my upper lip, im just scared the hair will grow in darker and thicker..any tips?
