Beauty gad­gets we didn’t know how we lived with­out

FLASH THAT SMILE

Un­like other elec­tronic tooth­brushes, the Foreo ISSA mini, $169, doesn’t have a ro­tat­ing head, but uses Sonic Pulse Tech­nol­ogy which is gen­tler on the gums to dis­lodge food and plaque. It’s also more hy­genic as it’s made from med­i­cal-grade sil­i­con bris­tles.

A RAY OF LIGHT

Pow­ered by a so­lar panel on its han­dle, the ReFa Carat Ray, $359, emits mi­cro cur­rents to en­cour­age col­la­gen and elastin syn­the­sis. The rolling ac­tion mim­ics mas­sages dur­ing a fa­cial, and aids in lym­phatic drainage for con­toured fea­tures. It’s also coated with plat­inum, a rare pre­cious metal that is suit­able for even sen­si­tive skin.

LINE TARGETER

The NuFACE Trin­ity Fa­cial Ton­ing De­vice stim­u­lates col­la­gen and elastin pro­duc­tion us­ing mi­cro current tech­nol­ogy, which is clin­i­cally tested to im­prove fa­cial con­tours and re­duce the ap­pear­ance of wrin­kles. Its ELE at­tach­ment of­fers tar­geted treat­ments to the eye and lip ar­eas, to im­prove crow’s feet and smile lines.

BEST FACE FOR­WARD

Tar­get the signs of age­ing with the Clar­isonic Smart Pro­file Up­lift Set, $530. With cleans­ing modes for both the face and body, it uses patented sound tech­nol­ogy to tar­get the loss of firm­ness. Us­ing RFID tech­nol­ogy in its SMART brush heads, the Smart Pro­file de­vice de­liv­ers 27,000 pulses over three min­utes at just the right fre­quency to cleanse thor­oughly, im­prov­ing skin elas­tic­ity and firm­ness over time.

SHE’S GOT THE BLUES

Im­prove your com­plex­ion with ath­ome chro­mother­apy, which uses coloured LED light to stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and pro­mote skin heal­ing. The blue light in Skin Inc’s Op­ti­mizer Voy­age Blue, $258, calms red­ness, and con­trols pim­ple out­breaks by elim­i­nat­ing ac­necaus­ing bac­te­ria. The de­vice also boosts the ab­sorp­tion of prod­ucts and im­proves lym­phatic drainage.

SCRUB-A-DUB-DUB

The Philips Beauty VisaCare Mi­cro­der­mabra­sion SC6240/03, $489, al­lows you to en­joy a mi­cro­der­mabra­sion treat­ment right in the com­fort of your own home. Its Dual-Ac­tion Air Lift and Ex­fo­li­a­tion sys­tem gently lifts and mas­sages skin to sim­u­late mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion, while its ex­fo­li­at­ing tip sloughs away at sur­face skin to re­veal a brighter com­plex­ion.

SONIC BOOM

Both beauty edi­tors and en­gi­neers have raved about the Dyson Su­per­sonic, $599, and its small but mighty V9 mo­tor. It dries hair much faster than a con­ven­tional hair dryer, and the mo­tor sits within the han­dle, mak­ing it feel like a well-balanced sword that doesn’t tire your wrists out.

ALL ABOUT THAT BASE

If you’ve used a va­ri­ety of foun­da­tion ap­pli­ca­tion tech­niques, you’ll know that tap­ping pro­duces the most nat­u­ral-look­ing fin­ish. The Color Me Au­to­matic Foun­da­tion Ap­pli­ca­tor, $75, mim­ics the ef­fect of fin­ger tap­ping with 15,000 pulses per minute for a full-cov­er­age, flaw­less fin­ish that lasts.
