7 high-tech beauty tools that actually work

From skincare to haircare, these beauty tools are definitely worth the investment.

With so many tools and gadgets on the market promising glowing skin and flawless, flowing locks, it can be hard to know which solutions actually work. And there’s nothing more disappointing than splurging on a top-of-the-line tool that doesn’t live up to its promise.

So we’ve done the digging and de-mystifying, and rounded up our top picks for tools that will boost your look and your confidence. Here, seven high-tech tools that will deliver the ultimate glow-up and redefine your beauty routine.

Manicare Nova Fit™ face massager with EMS technology, $114.99 at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and select independent pharmacies.

Microcurrent facials have become a mainstay in the beauty routines of celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Cindy Crawford and J-Lo. This 5-minute facial massager device works quickly to tighten, smooth and firm your skin’s appearance. Think of it as a workout for your face that leaves your jawline and cheeks more contoured and chisled than ever.

The Nova Fit™ uses Electronic Muscle Stimulation technology that sends tiny electric pulses that contract your facial muscles, working to sculpt, firm and support skin restoration and give you the glow you’ve always dreamed of. Once your workout is done, simply switch the device to relaxation mode for a facial massage to relieve tension and help you unwind — hello beauty sleep. And you can always sculpt with your go-to serum or moisturiser for an age-defying facial.

Neutrogena Light Therapy Spot Treatment, $39.99 at Priceline

Fact: more than 80 per cent of the world’s population suffers from acne past the age of 30 (yep, adult acne is a thing). That’s where this compact light therapy device comes in. It’s a chemical-free treatment that uses energy from red and blue lights to target and reduce signs of acne, as well as acne-causing bacteria. Slip it into your handbag for easy on-the-go use.

Remington i-Light IPL hair removal system, $168 at Harvey Norman

If you’re considering laser hair removal, give this DIY device a try. It’s your key to a (relatively) pain-free laser solution for both your face and body that won’t break the bank. The integrated skin tone sensor works to customise the intensity for enhanced and personalised hair reduction with each use. Silky smooth skin is coming your way.

WhiteGlo blue light whitening system, $34.99 at Chemist Warehouse

Hello Hollywood smile! This whitening kit will help whiten your teeth within a week, so you can forget expensive in-chair treatments. It’s a simple three-step process that delivers results in a single use — perfect for last minute touch-ups over the party season.

Homedics Facial Steamer, $128.78 at Beauty Expert

Looking for a way to fight blackheads, add moisture, and enhance your skincare routine? A facial steamer may be your answer. This petite device delivers a salon-quality facial steam, producing heated, ion-rich steam that works to purify your skin, cleansing right down to the tightest of pores.

Foreo Luna™ Go, $149 at Sephora

Thought you could live without a facial brush? Think again.

It slips effortlessly into your palm and your travel bag for easy on-the-go use and comes in four different models — normal, sensitive, combination and oily — so you can tailor your daily cleanse to your skin type.

Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, $549

A Dyson dryer is definitely worth the investment, delivering powerful performance and salon-worthy styling. Your hair will be shinier and healthier, thanks to the Supersonic’s air temperature regulation to prevent it from overheating. It’s quick, easy and comes with a range of attachments and nozzles to make styling effortless for any hair type. You’ll be feeling like a supermodel after your at-home blow-out.
