Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could recreate top spa treatments and achieve dermatologist-caliber results without leaving home – and without breaking the bank? Well, thanks to a host of whizzy gadgets and devices that truly deliver, you can tackle everything from acne and puffiness to sagging skin with only a power tool in hand. Everything else in your life feels techy at this point, so shouldn’t your skincare routine follow suit?


The Rejuvenating Roller

MZ Skin ‘Tone & Lift’

What if we told you there’s a skin roller that improves facial contours, aids lymphatic drainage (bye-bye puffiness), defends against environmental aggressors, tones, and restores your natural glow? It might sound too good to be true, but thanks to MZ Skin, this beauty dream is a reality.

Meet the aptly named ‘Tone & Lift’. Made of germanium (known for its ability to balance the positive and negative ions in the skin), it’s covered in acupressure pods to slow down the aging process while stimulating circulation, oxygenation, and collagen production. For an extra beautifying boost, use after applying MZ Skin’s ‘Golden Elixir Antioxidant Serum’.

The Clever Cleanser

Foreo 'Luna 3'

What do Miley Cyrus, Chrissy Teigen, and Kim Kardashian all have in common? They swear by their Foreo face brushes for squeaky-clean superstar skin. And although Foreo offers a range of nifty devices, it was the recent launch of ‘Luna 3’ that got us excited. Bringing smartphone technology straight to your skincare routine, this seriously clever cleanser boasts a whopping 36 types of pulsations and settings that tailor to each user’s needs.

Using soft, silicone touchpoints that work on a one-minute cycle, it removes oil, dirt, and excess sebum from even the hardest to reach areas. And if that wasn’t smart enough, it also memorizes and stores patterns and preferences, saving them on your smartphone via the bluetooth-operated Foreo for You app. Like we said, clever.

The Facial Freeze

Georgia Louise ‘Cryo Freeze Tools’

No, these aren’t fancy maracas, they’re celebrity facialist Georgia Louise’s at-home cryo tools that promise to do everything from calming and soothing to tightening and firming – all in just five minutes.

Loved by countless celebs (including Jennifer Aniston), these smooth stainless-steel sticks work wonders at refreshing and cooling the skin while contouring and draining toxins. They’re particularly great when you’re tired and tackling puffy peepers – all you need to do is store them in the freezer (they’ll keep cold for two hours) and use them to gently massage your skin. Cool.

The Smooth Operator

Dermaflash 'Dermaflash Luxe'

Facial fuzz or dull, dry skin is never a good look, but with this must-have, you’ll never worry about either ever again. Taking exfoliation to a whole new level, this exfoliator-meets-shaver uses blade-like ‘edges’ and gentle vibrations to remove dirt and debris while sloughing off dead cells and pesky facial hair. The result: smoother, softer, brighter skin in a ‘flash’.

Even better? It’s clinically proven that hair won’t grow back thicker, unlike other popular hair-removing techniques. Makeup will go on smoother, skin will look radiant and clear, and you only need to use it once a week – not to mention it’s been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in just four weeks. Sold.

The Mighty Microneedler

Nannette de Gaspé 'Art of Noir Roller'

In the words of Nannette de Gaspé, “There is no ingredient more powerful than those naturally produced by your body.” And that’s exactly why she created this at-home microneedling roller. Featuring 192 titanium-grade micro needles that are minimally invasive, it works by gently pricking the skin to boost its natural healing defenses, facilitate exfoliation, and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Not only does this mean that it helps impart a youthful glow, but it also prepares the skin for better absorption of the lotions and potions you apply after by creating microscopic channels. It might sound scary, but it doesn’t hurt – promise.

The Face Lifter

NuFACE 'Mini Facial Toning Device'

The secret to Miranda Kerr’s gorgeous wedding-day glow? The NuFace facial toner. This supermodel staple gives you the same effects as a non-invasive facelift in the comfort of your own home, and without a needle or anesthetic in sight. This is thanks to advanced microcurrent technology and low-voltage currents that mirror the body’s own natural currents at a cellular level. In short: it stimulates collagen and elastin production, repairs skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

To be used alongside the priming gel (which comes included), it glides seamlessly across the skin (focus on your jawline, cheekbones, brows, and forehead) to visibly lift and contour. Plus, this travel-friendly size is perfect for pick-me-ups when you’re out and about.
