All I want for Christmas is a stocking full of luxe beauty gadgets to primp, polish, and preen my hair, skin, and nails. The at home professional category has been exploding for the past few years and each exciting new launch grabs our interest. As luck would have it, there is so much to choose from this season—perfect for gifting and also for treating yourself. These are some of our best picks.
1- Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase: For the ultimate multitasker on your gift list, we love the idea of fighting wrinkles while you sleep. This novel silky pillowcase is constructed with special fibers that are embedded with Copper Oxide and it’s clinically proven to reduce lines and wrinkles in as little as 4 weeks of nightly usage. All you have to do is sleep—which for some of us is a challenge at times. It is also machine washable and can go in the dryer, so no special care is needed. $60 at Neimanmarcus.com.
2 – JeNu™: The JeNu Active-Youth System combines the power of gentle ultrasound wave technology with topical treatment products for the eyes and lips. The wand that is included works to drive the products deeper into the skin through ultrasound to increase hydration and reduce fine lines. It is stunningly simple to use, lightweight, comfortable, and takes only three minutes per day. We love this innovative concept that is a big trend in medical aesthetic treatments right now at high end medspas and doctor’s offices. $249 for the kit at jenu.com.
