Beauty gadgets have transformed how we look after ourselves, from applying skincare to styling frizzy hair to solving our niggling dilemmas from smoothing wrinkles to stopping breakouts to keeping our teeth bright white.
I’m down for anything that can minimize my grooming time and deliver a spa-like experience without waiting for an Uber. So, I set off on a mission to find some cool tools that are musts to get you through this holiday season and beyond.
ghd Glide Professional Hot Brush ($169)
I am one of those women who will spend any amount of cash to avoid going for blowouts, and am pretty useless with my hair. I’ve tried several hot brushes over the years, none of which were ideal, but basically got the job done. So, I decided to try the new ghd hot brush product because ghd was the first brand of flat iron I ever used way back when, so I have a soft spot for the brand. This brush is a no brainer. It is lighter and sleeker and easier to use than others, heats up very quickly, and works super fast. Smooths my ‘Bergdorf Blonde’ locks as well as I can without a pro doing it for me. Well worth the price.
Oral B GENIUS X LUXE 1000 ($249)
Oral-B GENIUS X LUXE 1000 is a high tech toothbrush that uses artificial intelligence to instantly recognize your personal brushing style. It gives you daily coaching so you can cover all areas evenly with just the right amount of pressure so you don’t miss any spots where plague may be hiding. Comes with a rechargeable handle, 7 brush heads, a charger and a travel case, and in your choice of 6 colors. Bluetooth allows you to charge your toothbrush and your phone.
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device ($325)
This uber popular muscle stimulator utilizes microcurrent therapy to help reduce wrinkles, improve facial contours, and wake up lazy skin tone for a smoother, softer complexion. It takes a commitment to see and maintain results – daily use of 10 minutes is recommended. It’s an ideal home therapy for any woman over 35, in between BOTOX, facials, IPLs or any other aesthetic anti-wrinkle treatments.
vFit is the first and only intimate wellness solution for women that uses red lights (LEDs), gentle heat and sonic technology. Gentle heat warms your most delicate tissues and encourages blood flow, which aids in natural lubrication to help soothe dryness and intensifies the benefits of the red lights. vFit is to be used with phototonic gel that is infused with moisturizing hyaluronic acid. Joylux, Inc. also just launched a trio of luxe intimate care products with natural oils and extracts for cleansing, refreshing and revitalizing women’s most delicate area without causing any pH imbalances.
Port and Polish ($20)
Why should your meds and vitamins take up all that room or get lost in your carry-on?! Port and Polish offers a fresh and modern take on a much needed travel accessory to keep all your pills and capsules organized and actually looking chic. Comes in 5 cool colors with a mirror tucked into the cover. Makes a great stocking stuffer, perfect for office Secret Santa gifting, or for the frequent flyers on your list.
Fria Beauty Fridge ($128)
I fell in love with this concept. You know those creams and gels that work best when cool to the touch? Well, now they have a home. Fria Beauty Fridge is ready to store all of your pricey beauty products so they stay fresh and last longer. Just think of all the uses – masks, cooling gels, stone rollers, toners, face towels, and more. You can also use it by your bedside for medications and cold packs post aesthetic procedures like lasers and peels, or for headaches, hay fever, hangovers, etc. Comes in pure white and rose gold. Totes adorable!
