Problem Solvers

The new crop of gizmos upgrading your beauty regimes

Equipped with the latest (sought-after) advances in tech, you’ll enhance the effects of your everyday skin care regime. Changing the face of beauty, these great innovations are no longer just ‘nice to haves’ – instead, they’re becoming firm fixtures. The simplest way to invest in your skin (and super-charge the impact of your go-to serums, creams and must-have masks), these perfect ‘Power Couples’ are the future… (and it’s looking pretty bright).

{Cleanser & Luna}

Not a new kid on the block but Foreo’s {LUNA} comes in multiple sizes and colours to suit every taste and bank balance. From pocket-sized (and disposable), to ‘full size’ via somewhere-in-the-middle, these face vibrators maximise the impact of your cleanser to leave all complexions ‘squeaky’ clean. Perfect when paired with a foaming gel formula – we LOVE Dr. Dennis Gross’s {Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel} – this bestselling gizmo will ‘tszuj’ all the oil, dirt and ‘gunk’ out of pores to leave complexions flawless.

{Neck Cream & Roller}

If you’re worrying about your jawline, neck and décolleté, supplement the firming, lifting impact of your chosen cream with something that will give the skin (and muscles) a workout. Studded with detoxifying tourmaline, Nurse Jamie’s {UpLift Facial Roller} is ideal for maximising the absorption of your cream while stimulating the expulsion of accumulated toxins so your chin and jaw feel taut, while Sarah Chapman’s {Facialift} puts facial muscles through their paces – acting like a HIIT session for tissue that’s been slacking. Use in conjunction with Omoroviza’s {Firming Neck Cream} to ensure you stay swanlike. 

{Eye Cream & Spectralite}

Boost the bag-banishing benefits of your beloved eye treatment with Dr. Dennis Gross’s (scary-looking) {Spectralite}. With LED lights to kick-start manufacture of much-needed collagen, this futuristic gizmo helps to thicken fragile skin and in turn, lessen depth of fine lines and ‘disappear’ your dark circles (where’d they go?). When coupled with Alpha-H {Liquid Gold Eye Cream} you’ll rewind ten years with three minutes each morning.

{Serum & Derma Roller}

Nowhere near as scary as it looks, eCOOKING’s {Derma Roller} creates tiny micro channels to enhance the penetration of your favourite oil or serum (we worship Mabel & Meg’s {Lumilixir} for fast-acting plumping and long-lasting brightening), as well as stimulating sluggish cells to maximise their natural regenerative processes. A little bit ‘ouchy’ at first, use on clean skin in the evening then slather your serum on top to ensure your skin feels ultra ‘springy’ come morning.

{Mask & UFO}

Condensing a 20 minute treatment into only 90 seconds, Foreo’s {UFO} is otherworldly. With warm and cool modes, as well as age-defying light therapy, this guarantees a stunning, facial-worthy luminosity in less time than it takes to boil the kettle. With targeted ‘sheet masks’ for {Day} and for {Night}, use this whenever you need to look fabulous, FAST.
