35 Fascinating Beauty Tools & Devices You Didn’t Know You Needed Until Now

Scroll through Instagram at any time of day, and you’re likely to come across at least one person who’s rolling an oddly shaped tool around their face or posing with a slightly terrifying LED mask. In fact, one could say fascinating beauty tools and devices are one of the beauty world’s biggest trends right now — they’ve practically become a phenomenon overnight.

And with good reason. Not only are they fun to use (and post about, obviously), they often offer new solutions you may not have known about or ways to get in-office treatments and results from the comfort of your home. They also range across categories, so there are tools to help de-puff your face, smooth out the skin on your body, reach that last little bit of makeup in your almost-empty bottle, and even help your shampoo lather better.

While some may have already been on your radar for a while, the extent of the offerings is massive — so even if you consider yourself a master in all things beauty tools and devices, there are sure to some you haven’t yet discovered in the list below. So without further ado, keep scrolling — 35 fascinating products are ahead.

 

Conture’s Exfoliating Hair Remover

 

The latest in hair removal is a device that not only leaves your skin stubble-free and smooth, but exfoliated, too. A dual-blade precision rotatory system provides a close shave while a polishing head helps remove buildup, leaving skin clean and bright.

Here’s How Dermatologists Smooth and Prevent Forehead Wrinkles, Fast

Ask just about any dermatologist how to prevent forehead wrinkles and they’ll tell you to start implementing an anti-aging skincare routine. The trick is to know which products and treatments to incorporate into your regimen, as well as when to put it into practice. As a general rule of thumb, dermatologists say that you should begin your preventative anti-aging journey sometime between your 20s and 30s. It’s hard to nail down a specific age since, as we mentioned before, genetics play a role. That said, your best bet is to talk to your mom and grandma about when they first started noticing fine lines and wrinkles on their appearance so that you can get ahead of the game.

 

Try Using an At-Home Toning Device to Smooth Skin

…You want to punch up the power. That’s where toning devices come into play. Engelman swears by them. “These devices can help increase the amount of absorption of active ingredients, so they penetrate into the deep layers of the skin – giving maximum benefits,” she explains, recommending the Conture Kinetic Toning Device. “It has a multitude of benefits with over 250,000 hours of research behind it. With three settings for face, neck, and chest, the device combines isometric compression and low-frequency vibrations to prepare the skin for up to 300 percent more absorption of active ingredients up to 45 minutes after use. In clinical trials, 78 percent saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.”

If you’re in your 70s, lasers can help revive skin

“Days in the sun can finally start to show in later years with dark spots and crepey looking skin,” explains Dr. Engelman. That’s why she recommends in-office procedures (lasers) for patients in this age group. At home, don’t stop using your retinoid and oil. There are also at-home devices to help stimulate the skin and aid in product absorption. Dr. Engelman’s favorite is the Conture Kinetic Toning Device. “It’s a non-invasive way to lift and revive skin through isometric compression and low-frequency vibration.”

The Facial-Toning Device and CBD Lotion Jessica Alba Counts as Her Pre-Glam Must-Haves

Jessica Alba took to her Instagram stories tonight to share her pre-glam picks for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Alba, who founded The Honest Company, had some of her brand’s beauty in the mix—the new Prime + Perfect Mask ($20), Magic Beauty Balm ($13), Vitamin C Radiance Serum ($28) and Organic Beauty Facial Oil ($28) to be exact—but kept it real as she shared some off-the-radar favorites from three other lines.

For starters, she credited Comfort Zone’s Sublime Skin Eye Patches for being her “secret weapon against tired-looking eyes.” Then, there was a shoutout to the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System ($70), an anti-aging wonder tool Alba says “does all the things.” And, finally, Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion ($60) got some love for being a “secret weapon for long nights out.”

 

 

#BigLipstickEnergy: The 3 Lipsticks I’m Obsessed With Right Now

“What lip is that?” A professional lipstick critic reveals all.

I’m a serial lipstick dater. So many lip products slide onto my desk. Some I double-tap and have all the heart eyes for. Others I ghost and leave on seen. This is #BigLipstickEnergy, an honest breakdown of how I feel about the latest lip launches. Read on for the three lipstick flings I’m keeping in rotation for now. Next week, I’ll have a new roster.

Chromatic Lip Stain in Classic Red

Luminess Cosmetics luminessbeauty.com

$24.00

THE DETAILS: 

Metallic eyeshadow ruled 2019 as one of the biggest makeup trends of the year. In 2020, let’s not leave our lips out—they deserve to shine, too. Start with this lip stain, which, unlike others on the market, won’t weigh your lips down with gunky, chunky, glittery excess. Instead, it feels smooth, soft, and velvety on your lips, and dries down quickly to a multidimensional, metallic finish. The formula does not budge one bit, so you won’t have to worry about mirror-checking every few minutes.

WHY I’M OBSESSED: 

Every now and then, I have an urge to remix classic reds with a fun finish, like metallic. This sparkly red shade stands out against my skin tone and makes me want to selfie my life away. More importantly, the soft stain it’s low-key af to wear. It seriously takes zero energy throughout the day. After an hour, I literally forgot I was wearing it until someone complimented me.
