From line smoothers to pimple zappers, there are now so many high-tech beauty tools available that it’s easier than ever to get spa-quality facials at home. But navigating the world of skincare gadgets is tough. You can’t exactly take skincare devices for a test run at Ulta the way you would a foundation. And then, of course, let’s not forget the hefty price tags.
So, how can you tell which tool is junk, and which will genuinely give you slowing, envy-inducing skin? We’ve got your back. Here, we pick six highly-rated skincare tools that are definitely worth breaking the bank.
If you’ve put off purchasing a Clarisonic facial cleansing brush because all it gives you is an exfoliating cleanse, then the brand’s latest offering – the Clarisonic Smart – is right up your alley. In addition to providing an exfoliating cleanse (duh), it can also de-puff unsightly under-eyes, give you a facial firming massage, or buff on your foundation – depending on the brush heads you pair it with. Dream tool? Definitely.
Let’s face it: at the end of a tiring day, the last thing you want to do is spend 10 minutes trying to get all that makeup off your face. But what if we told you a minute was all it took? No, it’s not magic. Instead, we’re talking about Foreo’s Luna 3. When used as part of your daily cleansing routine, it channels T-Sonic pulsations to provide a much deeper clean than washing by hand, in turn lifting away dirt, oil, and makeup residue in just 60 seconds.
It’s time to reveal younger-looking and rejuvenated skin. PMD’s Personal Microderm is equipped with a perfectly calibrated vacuum suction to brighten, smooth, and even your skin tone and texture. With it in your beauty stash, it’s now possible for you to get the same brilliant results you’d get from in-office microdermabrasion treatment. Also, it doesn’t only work on the face – you can use it anywhere for smoother, softer skin!
Adult acne is the worst. Thankfully, we’re constantly discovering new ways to get rid of these pesky buggers. And one scientifically-proven way is that of light therapy. But here’s a catch: you need to do it consistently.
If you don’t have the time to head to the dermatologist every week, opt for the portable LightStim – it’s a lifesaver. It emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that heal existing blemishes, prevent future breakouts and recapture a radiant glow in just minutes.
Meet your skin’s new best friend: Nurse Jamie’s UpLift Body. Engineered with an innovative “Y-shape” dual head, the UpLift Body works by lifting and sculpting the skin with a series of vibrations meant to mimic the effects of a professional massage. By stimulating circulation and allowing the vibrations to relax the facial muscles, tension is alleviated, and you can look forward to smoother and tighter skin.
Reverse the effects of aging and gravity with the Silk’n Titan. Engineered with harmonized energy technology, the Titan makes use of Collagen and Elastin Remodeling (CER) energy to repair, improve, and brighten skin from the inside out. Cell renewal will be stimulated, and loose skin will become tight and supple once again.
