Technically an eyebrow razor, the Tinkle razor has been popularized as a dermaplaning tool.

If you're in search of a facial razor but have no clue which blade to trust with your face, Whitney Port has got you covered. She revealed that she relies on the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor (Buy It, $5 for 6, amazon.com) to get rid of "peach fuzz" and exfoliate her face in the process.

Port posted a photo of a Tinkle razor in an Instagram Story and shared her off-label use for the product. "You guys. I use this amazing tool to get off all the peach fuzz on my face," she wrote on the photo. "Yes, I know that sounds yuck but as I'm getting older I'm getting random spots of peach fuzz that need to go away!" she added. It's true, BTW: Peach fuzz on your face can increase as you age thanks to hormonal changes.

In fact, the Tinkle Eyebrow Razor's potential as an exfoliating tool is its true claim to fame — it might as well be renamed the Tinkle Face Razor. The dermaplaning crowd — those who shave their face to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair — use the tool all over their faces rather than just for brow clean-up. That exfoliation allows products to sink in more deeply, and many fans of dermaplaning swear the practice allows for an unbelievably smooth foundation application.

And while you may have believed the common myth that says shaving can cause hair to grow in thicker, Port's decision to use a razor isn't self-sabotage. Not only is that myth, well, a myth, but since vellus hairs (that "peach fuzz" all over your face) are so fine, cutting them with a razor doesn't leave behind that stubbly feeling you might associate with beard hair. That's true of Port's experience with the Tinkle razor, per her Instagram Story. "There's no stubble after and it exfoliates your skin as well," she wrote.

The Tinkle razor has thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon that echo Port's praise on Instagram. "I [use] this more for exfoliation than for hair removal," wrote one reviewer. "My skin has never been smoother, clearer, and younger-looking than it is now!" they added. Someone else wrote of their experience with the razor: "Bits of peach fuzz are removed with ease and my face feels SO smooth after I 'shave' and moisturize! My foundation glides on and looks so good!" Another important distinction: Reviewers say that the razors are easy to use without causing nicks.
