The Best Beauty Gadgets You Won’t Want To Give Away

The Best Beauty Gadgets to Give This Christmas

Struggling to think of the perfect Christmas gift for the friend who has everything? Well remember, a woman is only as good (looking) as her beauty tools, so why not surprise her with one of these cutting-edge gizmos? Some fancy new brushes, perhaps? Or why not just ignore your best intentions altogether, and treat yourself to something guaranteed to get you gorgeous before ‘party season’ strikes (it’s still only November, after all)?

Foreo’s {LUNA Mini} vibrates up to 8000 times a minute, to rid pores of every last trace of residual make up and grime. Gentle but ultra-effective, this amplifies the efficacy of your cleanser, to leave skin looking absolutely poreless.

Ideal for the long and unruly of lock, T3 Hair Care’s {SinglePass X Straightening Iron} has 1.5 inch-wide plates, to dramatically speed up your styling time. Impregnated with tourmaline to disperse water molecules without compromising hair health, this fights frizz without the frazzle, so that even tempestuous tresses are tamed.

Something you never knew you needed, but will wonder how you ever lived without is Waters Therapy Shower {Shower Head} – a water-purifying and softening shower attachment (even our determinedly tech-phobic Buying Director was able to fit it), that eliminates chlorine and lime to leave skin feeling soft and your locks looking lustrous.

Jouer’s {Le Petit Brush Set} contains five mini, multi-purpose brushes to address your every make up-application need. Guaranteed to delight any budding (or established) make up maven, the brushed gold and perspex looks typically chic, while the accompanying pale pink pouch is the perfect way to transport all those on-the-go beauty essentials.

And now for something extraordinary… Bed of Nails {Acupressure Mat} looks worryingly torturous, but is actually a proven stress, pain, headache and insomnia-reliever. The plastic spikes are… spiky, but once you’re ‘in position’ you’ll quickly feel an overwhelming sense of calm. The perfect present for a worry-wort, this is imaginative, thoughtful and guaranteed to earn you ‘great friend’ points.
