"The one thing I didn’t know I needed": 16 women tried the buzzy new dermaplaning tool for glowing, smoother skin.

If Leigh Campbell wears army pants and flip-flops, then she must have her reasons, and I'll also be wearing army pants and flip-flops next.

So when Leigh told us she shaves her face in *stunning* detail on the You Beauty podcast, I knew it was my turn to shimmy down to the chemist and try it for myself.

Dermaplaning is the fancy term for using a razor blade to remove peach fuzz and dry, dead skin from your face. It’ll also give you a very mild exfoliation as the razor glides across the top of the dermis, helping to reveal MUCH smoother, more radiant skin for your foundation to look significantly better on. Chef's kiss.

One in particular I want to talk about is the new Finishing Touch Flawless Dermaplane Glow. It's the buzzy contender that incorporates a built-in LED light (gasp!) for did-I-just-become-a-beauty-expert level dermaplaning at home. 

As soon as I read it has a professional-grade Japanese stainless steel blade (I wasn't mucking around when I said fancy!), I obviously felt I needed to have 100 women from Mamamia's You Beauty Panel to rate it first and tell me every little detail on its performance.

So, what did they all think of it? Did this $40 cutie meet expectations?

Danielle, 32: "The light, which I wondered if it was a gimmick, was actually really purposeful."

"I quite enjoyed using the product – it was easy to use, the chunkier handle made it easy to manoeuvre, changing the blades in and out was easy (definitely no way you could cut yourself, it felt quite safe to do so). The light, which I wondered if it was a gimmick, was actually really purposeful in seeing the areas I had done.

"It was so satisfying to see the small fuzzy hairs fall off my face as I was using the product, and can definitely see the great results and smoothness of my skin after just a couple of uses."

Emily, 28: "It was a lot easier to use than I first anticipated."

"I’ve never tried dermaplaning before, and I’m very impressed! I'd happily recommend this product – I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but it was a lot easier to use than I first anticipated."

Ada, 32: "An asset to my beauty regime at a fraction of the salon cost."

"The Finishing Touch Flawless Dermaplane Glow was easy to use, not too rough on my skin (I was genuinely worried I might cut my face as I've only had professionally done dermaplaning before). It felt great, and has made a lovely little accessory to add to my beauty collection. 

"It was super easy to use, and relatively quick. I'm sure it will be an asset to my beauty regime at a fraction of the salon cost."

Vanessa, 35: "I had no idea my face was so hairy!"

"My experience with it was great. I had no idea my face was so hairy! My skin felt lovely and smooth afterward, and the product was easy to use. I appreciated the inclusion of the battery.

"It definitely lived up to the hype. The little light was very handy."

Ran, 34: "Would recommend this product and buy again!"

"Loved it. Very easy to use and the results were great. It got rid of the the peach fuzz and dead skin, and my skin felt super smooth afterwards. Would recommend this product and buy again!"

Kaitlyn, 30: "The light feature allowed me to clearly see my fine hair."

"I really liked the quality and added features of this Finishing Touch Flawless tool. Really enjoyed the considered contour design, light feature and multiple spare blades.

"I am fair so I mainly like dermaplaning to enhance the smoothness of my skin, ready for my makeup application. The light feature allowed me to clearly see my fine hair which is perfect for this purpose. I also think the colour palette makes it look quite luxe and looks very at home in my bathroom!"

Herjot, 28: "The light is super helpful seeing the peach fuzz hair."

"Excellent experience with this product! It definitely met expectations, and was so easy to use. The built-in LED light is super helpful seeing the peach fuzz hair. I would happily purchase this myself and certainly recommend it to friends."

Clare, 28: "Heard about it on the You Beauty podcast! I love the smoothness it gives my skin."

"I'd heard about the product from Kelly talking about it on the You Beauty podcast! I would repurchase this again definitely – it took me a while to navigate my first go, but was quite easy once I got going. I love the smoothness it gives my skin."

Natasha, 29: "This product is super easy to use."

"I was really keen to try a product like this as I have a lot of vellus hair [peach fuzz]. This product is super easy to use and the LED light is really helpful in seeing the hairs up close. It’s a great product and I will definitely continue to use, as I was super happy with results and ease of use."

Ashley, 34: "Definitely something I’ll use regularly."

Jessica, 35: "My makeup sat better on my face."

"My skin felt softer and my makeup sat better on my face! I honestly loved the result and ease of use, so would repurchase this in future."

Keely, 27: "Left my face feeling super smooth."

"I loved using the dermaplaning tool! It was so easy to use and left my face feeling super smooth afterwards. I experienced no irritation and the light feature meant that I could easily tell which part of my face I had treated and which parts still needed tending to. This product definitely exceeded my expectations, so I'd recommend to others for sure."

"I would rate this 9 out of 10! Exceeded expectations, super easy to navigate, great built-in lighting, and zero worry about accidentally cutting yourself. Really liked the overall look and feel of the product too."
