1. Michael Todd Sonicblend Foundation Brush ($79)
This automatic foundation brush does all the work for you. It applies powder, liquid or cream products with 400+ micro-movements per second to perfectly sweep and blend over the face filling in any fine lines along the way. The brush head is antimicrobial, which means it will stay cleaner and fresher for longer. With products like these, you can also expect to use less of your makeup products as the buffing brush distributes them more evenly.
2. simplehuman Lighted Sensor Mirror ($200)
This is one of my prized possessions– I even brought it with me to my destination wedding because I can’t do my makeup looking into anything else! This smart mirror lights up automatically as you approach it and simulates natural sunlight so you can see the true tones of your makeup. The newest models allow you to adjust the brightness with just a touch, and it’s USB rechargable.
3. FOREO LUNA 3 ($199)
The FOREO LUNA devices are my all-time favorite skin care tools. This cleansing device uses silicone touchpoints to gently exfoliate and deeply cleanse the face, and can also deliver anti-aging benefits on the massage mode. My skin has been clearer, softer, and more even after incorporating this into my routine several years ago. The FOREO LUNA 3 is the most recent top-of-the-line model, but they have other versions at different price points as well. You can compare them in my post here.
4. Finishing Touch Flawless Hair Remover ($15.99)
I’ve been using this for two years to help tackle peach fuzz and facial hair on my upper lip and cheeks. The end result is incredibly smooth skin that makeup glides on top of. It’s gentle enough for daily use and easy to clean. You can see how it works— and why I shave my face— in my post here.
5. Panasonic Facial Steamer ($69.99)
I just added this to my personal skin care routine and I’m never looking back! It helps open your pores so your products sink in, and keeps your skin moisturized and balanced. It’s really been helping in this dry climate and season, and makes me feel like I’m getting a facial at home. Check out my DIY facial routine using this steamer in my post here.
6. Electric Handheld Hair Massager ($15.99)
It’s easy to forget about scalp health, but in reality it needs just as much TLC as the face on your skin! This tool helps stimulate the scalp, break up product build up and dandruff as well as delivers a relaxing head massage. By massaging the scalp, you’re promoting blood circulation which can result in hair growth.
7. PMD Personal Microderm Pro ($199)
If you want to be able to give yourself a spa-quality facial treatment at home, whenever you want, this is the gadget for you! The PMD gives you the power to perform microdermabrasion treatments without paying the high price tag every single time. It removes dead skin, helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, and helps you achieve an overall smoother and brighter complexion.
8. Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment ($26.99)
Here’s another tool that brings professional skin care home with you. Light therapy is used by dermatologists to treat breakouts quickly, and this pen delivers the same technology to spot-treat pesky pimples. It uses red and blue light therapy to target acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation.
9. Cooluli Skin Care Fridge ($49.99)
Skin care fridges are all the rage right now, and are great to keep on your vanity or in your bathroom for anything you want to keep cool— face masks, face rollers, eye creams, you name it! This is the one I personally have. It’s quiet, roomy, but still doesn’t take up too much countertop space.
10. AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Light ($21.50)
After all the holiday-exclusive coffee drinks and nights sipping on wine, a device like this will be a godsend! Use this light with any type of teeth whitening gel or strips to enhance and speed up results. It helps break down stains more quickly and get the most out of whatever at-home teeth whitening product you use.
11. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Brush ($38.99)
One of my all-time favorite beauty tools, this hair dryer gives you dry, silky smooth and styled hair in just one step. It dries hair more quickly and straightens while boosting your hair with volume and reducing frizz.
