Technology has never been better. With smart inventions in our daily lives, we can now look better more efficiently and with much less effort. This month, we look into the latest beauty gadgets on Taobao that actually work. Saving us time and making us look more radient.
FOREO LUNA MINI FACE BRUSH
If you have not been hit by the craze of cleansing brushes, now is the time to try. Beauty editors around the world are fans of this cool gadget that has won numerous awards for its innovative design and technology. Made with soft silicone, it utilizes T-sonic pulsations to effectively remove 99.5-percent of dirt and oil, as well as makeup residue and dead skin cells while exfoliating without irritating the skin. Best of all, it is waterproof and works well with gel or cream cleansers.
REFA CARAT BEAUTY ROLLER
The ReFa Carat is a unique massage tool that mimics the deep kneading sensation performed by aestheticians during a professional service. Made of platinum, the 360-degree multi-angular roller fits anywhere on your body, from your face, neck, arms, calves, waist, and bust to tone and tighten your delicate skin. The built-in solar panel captures light and generates micro-currents making it similar to treatments in aesthetic salons. This little beauty tool works effectively to relieve stress on stiff neck, and calves, while toning up the jawline to give you a more slim face shape. You can use it anytime, anywhere, and can easily control the massage intensity just by adjusting the angle of the roller.
SKIN INC OPTIMIZER VOYAGE TRI-LIGHT
Available at Sephora online, it uses NASA technology, LED chromatheraphy and low frequency stimulation to tackle multiple skin concerns for younger, brighter, blemish-free skin. It comes embedded with three colored lights: red (to activate cells to increase product absorption & enhancing treatments), blue (to zap away bacteria and calm irritated skin), and yellow (to brighten and revive the complexion).
SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE
Did you know that cotton pillowcases scratch and tug on skin, and grab and twist hair, resulting in premature stretching and sleep creases? Wake up to smoother, softer skin and silky hair in the morning with the highest grade of mulberry silk pillowcases. Sleep like a baby with the anti-aging benefits of silk as it helps alleviate creasing on your face, (say goodbye to pillow marks) thus reducing wrinkles and lines. Extend your blowout with this silky pillowcase as your hair glides off the soft pillow, reducing frizziness, split ends, and breakage.
DYSON SUPERSONIC HAIRDRYER
Unlike a regular hairdryer, the Dyson Supersonic's motor is so small that it is found in its handle rather than at the back of the hairdryer. Its high-pressure air flow and negative ions help reduce static and makes drying hair extremely fast. This smart hairdryer uses intelligent heat control to maintain an optimum temperature thus preventing heat damage and making hair appear shiny.
