They’re guaranteed to improve results

In a world where it’s totally normal to ask a device called Alexa what the time is instead of checking your watch, or being able to switch appliances on and off at home from the convenience of your phone while you’re sitting in the office, it was only a matter of time before beauty products followed suit. These high-tech products promise to amplify the results of basic essentials, such as an ordinary manual toothbrush or creamy face mask… and we promise they’re worth the hype.
Foreo Issa 2
The newest way to brush your teeth is with a high-tech toothbrush that has silicone bristles, which are reported to be much gentler on gums and can prevent bacteria build-up. What’s also really impressive about this tool is that a single battery charge will last through an entire 365 days of use, making it an excellent travel-friendly companion.
Kat Burki Micro-Firming Wand
Don’t underestimate this tiny device: it’s powered by ionic energy that causes micro-vibrations on your skin to help improve blood circulation and boost the penetration of skin care products into your skin. The device is only activated when it comes in contact with damp skin so apply your moisturiser as you normally would then use the device all over your face in small circular motions.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Spot Treatment Pen
Featuring red and blue light technology, this sleek stick is simply powered by a AAA battery and yet it can reduce inflammation in blemishes and eliminate bacteria in just two minutes. Turn it on then hold it over your blemish after washing and drying your face - the light therapy will accelerate your skin’s natural healing process.
Olay Magnemask Infusion Rejuvenating Jar Mask
This may look like an ordinary face mask, but it’s actually powered by niacinamide and pentapeptide, which are activated and pushed deeper into the skin to seriously up luminosity levels when used with the Magnetic Infuser tool.
