Clever beauty gadgets

Beauty companies have upped their game, creating some of the coolest devices to make your life easier and save you time and money. Sarah Brooks-Wilson has found the beauty tools you’ll need to go from looking good to looking great.

For cleansing

Foreo Luna Play Plus, $75

Not only will this give your face and neck a deep clean, but the softly vibrating head will stimulate lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness. It’s lightweight, has a long-lasting battery and a large, bacteria-resistant silicone brush head, but it’s still small enough to reach the hard-to-cleanse areas.


For exfoliating

Clarisonic Smart Profile, $349

This cleansing brush has SMART microchip technology in both the device and brush head that automatically adjusts the speed, frequency and cleansing time for a customised face and body cleanse. It comes with a Turbo Body brush head, so for those who like to self-tan regularly this device is a no-brainer. It also makes scrubbing your back a breeze.


For facial massage

Alyssum Alchemy rose quartz facial roller, $68

Don’t be put off by the lack of electrical buzz — this facial roller is a game changer, especially for the delicate eye area. Before your massage put the roller in the fridge for 15 minutes, then simply combine it with the included facial oil for a smooth massage. See how much your face glows after 10 minutes of rolling.


For acne

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask, $69.99

This revolutionary light mask, which fits over the face, is a simple and affordable
way to treat facial acne at home. The mask is lightweight and comfortable to wear, utilising both red and blue light therapy to target breakouts for a clearer, more even complexion.


For hair removal

Philips Lumea Prestige IPL hair removal, $799

This portable hair removal device reduces and prevents hair growth, all in the comfort of your own home. It uses light-based technology and a SmartSkin sensor, so it can be used on a variety of hair and skin tones across all areas of the body. While it’s a big investment, it will save you on salon visits and is great to have on demand at home when you need it.


For clean teeth

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush, $389.95

Not only is it a beautifully designed electric toothbrush that you won’t mind having on display in your bathroom, but it offers five different cleaning modes: clean, sensitive, gum care, white and polish. It also provides advanced cleaning and whitening. What’s not to love?


For hairdrying

Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, $499

This groundbreaking hairdryer delivers on drying speed and temperature control, giving the best home blow dry around. It’s incredibly light and quiet, has an advanced digital motor and, as with all things Dyson, is very pleasing to look at. The only downside is the hefty price tag, but it’s truly worth the investment.


For anti-ageing

NuFace Trinity Mini, $292

A micro-current device that works to improve facial contours, skin tone and helps reduce those fine lines and wrinkles. Easy to use, you simply work the device over your face after cleansing for as little as five minutes a day. Great if you don’t have the time for facials and your skin has lost some of its youthful tone.
