Fab Find Beauty Gadget Gift Guide

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

If you looking for fantastic beauty gadgets to treat yourself or the beauty enthusiasts on your gift list, then I have a roundup of some great beauty devices for your consideration. Some are affordable and some are definite splurges, but all are worthy of consideration.
NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device (Full Review HERE): Currently on sale at Nordstrom for $243.75 (Regularly $325.00) Attachments sold separately, and reviewed HERE. The NuFACE Trinity Toning Device is a microcurrent treatment that is FDA-cleared for facial stimulation, and is gently stimulates the larger surface areas of the face in order to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The underlying idea is that as the body ages that the" body’s natural current begins to slow down (like our metabolism) leading to sagging skin, loss of contour & wrinkles." The NuFACE Trinity seeks to redress this sagging by toning facial muscles while simultaneously improving skin tone, improving contour, and by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

I was so thoroughly impressed by the immediacy of the results, when the NuFace Trinity was used on me in a facial, that I vowed then and there that I would own one of these wonder-devices. That was three years ago and I am so thrilled by the results. 

It lifts and tones the skin, and essentially approximates the results of a facelift without surgery. Continued use assures cumulative results, and I have noticed that my skin is more taut, my fine lines are diminished, and that my skin has a noticeably lifted effect. I only have the dual sphere attachment that comes with the Trinity, but I am very interested in getting the NuFACE Trinity Effective Lip & Eye Attachment and the NuFACE Trinity Wrinkle Reducer Attachment because I am so impressed by the results of this game-changing anti-aging device.

NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device is a, "multi-solution, skin care device innovatively-designed with interchangeable treatment attachments, helps rejuvenate and improve your appearance."

According to NuFACE,

Improve your facial contours, skin tone and overall youthfulness in as little as five minutes a day with the NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device. The FDA-cleared tool provides you with unparalleled professional results in one easy system that works through interchangeable treatment attachments to help rejuvenate and improve your appearance. It features a smart skin sensor for customized delivery; a beautifully engineered ergonomic design; as well as push buttons, an auto-shutoff and rechargeable battery for total comfort and ease.
NuFACE asserts that while exercise tones and sculpts the body, that their NuFACE microcurrent devices contour and tone the face with visible, long-lasting effects with continued use. In fact, they call NuFACE "Fitness for Your Face."
Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher 3-in-1 Dermal Rejuvenation System (Regularly $99.00 Black Friday Special Price $79.20 at Macy's): This brilliant 3-1 facial device was conceived to exfoliate dead skin cells, target skin rough in texture, to clear congested pores, to soften the appearance of enlarged pores and to even out skin tone.

It can be used on your face, neck and décolleté, and to see the best results, Conture recommends using this device twice a day. One of its really great features is the fact that it has a special setting for the neck– which is one of the most neglected areas that tends to show. signs of sun damage and premature aging.

According to Conture,

You exercise the rest of your body; why aren’t you exercising your skin? The Conture Skin Toning Device is an anti-aging beauty device that tones skin to restore radiance and firmness to the three main areas: décolleté, eye area, forehead and everything in between.

Moving in an upward motion towards the top of the face, repeat until entire section has been treated. Treat one area at a time, working device over cheeks, jawline, forehead, neck, etc. independent of each other. Use once or twice daily for best results along with Kinetic Treatment Serum morning and night.
PURenergizer Nano Solutions Skin Infuser ($80.00 from PUR Attitude): This skincare device utilizes nano-technology to deliver serums deeper into the skin to plump fine lines and wrinkles and to deliver deeper hydration. It is so easy and fun to use: you simply add the PUR Attitude Serum of choice into the tank, undiluted, hold the device at least an inch away from your face and then spray for about a minute. After it has absorbed and dried, follow with your favorite moisturizer (and sunscreen if used during the day).

According to PUR Attitude,

PUR energizer ™Nano Solutions Skin Infuser is a waterless system that uses a natural polymer system found in almost every cell of our bodies. By linking it with Phospholipids, Ceramides and Sphingolipids, our one-of-a-kind technology enhances the absorption of key ingredients through the skin’s defense wall. This will plump the skin to soften the look of wrinkles with our cutting edge natural technology.

The PUR energizer ™ Nano Solutions Skin Infuser transforms your targeted nano solutions into tiny, potent nano-vapor to penetrate deeper into the skin - deeper than any normal serums could go. This creates fresh liposomes right at the time of application, which enhances the delivery system of each individual ingredient, maximizing it's benefits and working synergistically with your skin's natural lipid barrier.
Features:
- Turns nano solutions into nano droplets (extremely small, at less than 100 nm), a moisturizing mist capable of deeply penetrating the outer and innermost layers of your skin.
- Lightweight and portable

Directions: Pour targeted nano solution into tank and hold device 1" away from face. Mist all over face for 60 seconds. Allow to dry and absorb. Follow with moisturizer, if desired.
FOREO LUNA 2 (Full Review HERE. (Black Friday Special from FOREO $139.30 Regularly $199.00): I love a great facial cleansing brush, and by far, my favorite has been the FOREO LUNA (Reviewed HERE). I actually didn't think that I could find something better than my LUNA for Sensitive/Normal Skin, but when FOREO launched their LUNA 2 line I was proven wrong. If you had told me a year ago that FOREO would be launching the LUNA 2, I would have said why mess with perfection, but they clearly knew what they were doing because the new design is even better than the original.

The LUNA 2 is available in four specialized designs to more precisely meet the needs of combination skin, normal skin, oily skin and sensitive skin.

The efficacy of this cleaning device is possible because the LUNA 2 features 8,000 Transdermal Sonic (T-Sonic) pulsations per 2 minutes at 2X the power, and because it delivers the deepest cleaning possible while remaining very gentle on the skin. In fact, the touch points are even softer in the new generation LUNA 2 models making them more gentle on the skin that the original LUNA.

The LUNA 2 boasts 12 customizable intensities that allows you to alter the intensity depending on the needs of your skin at any given moment. Furthermore, when utilizing the anti-aging side of the LUNA 2, their lower-frequency pulsations specifically target the wrinkle prone areas of the face, and smooth and firm the appearance of the skin.

The nonporous silicone is ultra-hygienic, and is therefore resistant to bacterial buildup. While it is completely waterproof, and thus perfect in the shower, I do not store it in the shower because it is more sanitary to store it in a dry environment. Because of its innovative design, FOREO asserts that the LUNA 2 is 35% more hygienic than standard cleansing brushes. Unlike traditional traditional cleansing brushes, with removable heads, the LUNA 2 naturally harbors less bacteria.

The sealed charging port is, "waterproof to a depth of 1 meter allowing for easy cleaning and use in the bath or shower." 

Unlike cleaning devices with removable brush heads, that only clean the face, the LUNA is an ingenious two-sided sonic cleaner that offers added functionality. The brush cleaning surface effectively and efficiently cleans the face, but it also features a visionary Anti-Aging Surface that treats wrinkle-prone tension spots.

The pragmatic design, which altogether eliminates the need for a removable brush-head that has to be replaced every few months, eliminates the same level of cleaning to remove bacteria buildup from the device itself. 

I also find that the LUNA'S cleaning surface, comprised of the rounded silicone touch points offer a more efficient means of cleaning the skin. For instance, the Clarisonic has longer bristles that keep the base of the cleaner at a greater distance from the skin, and its pulsations are more diffused by its brush. Conversely, the LUNA 2's T-Sonic Pulsations are transferred directly from the base unit to the face without this greater distance between the base and the tips of the bristles. 

The LUNA 2 offers a built-in massage because of its intimate proximity to the skin, and the direct transfer of the full intensity of the T-Sonic Pulsations–  even when using the Cleaning Surface instead of the Anti-Aging Surface.

($199.00 from FOREONordstromSephoraSpace NKBarneys New York, Bloomingdale'sMacy'sSkincare RXSkinstoreAnthropologieNet-A-PorterNeiman MarcusLord & TaylorCult Beauty and Violet Grey)
According to FOREO,

The revolutionary designed LUNA 2 is an enhanced T-Sonic™ face brush and anti-aging system that gives you a completely personalized cleansing. The LUNA 2 is now available with four specialized brush types for a tailor-made skin care experience.

The LUNA 2 goes beyond the standard facial cleansing brush by delivering real skin care results that you – and everyone else – will see. Indulge in a 2-minute daily gentle skin care routine and uncover a more luminous, refined and youthful look. 

The next-generation LUNA 2 facial cleansing brush utilizes up to 2X the T-Sonic power to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores of makeup residue, and remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil. The LUNA 2 face brush also improves the absorption of your favorite skincare products.
This is the LUNA 2 for Combination Skin.
Gamma + Italia Aria Hair Dryer ($149.00 from Gamma + Italia and Amazon): If you are seeking an ultra-quiet and effective hair dryer, then the Gamma + Italia Aria is a wonderful choice. It features a hybrid motor that is high-performance, and that reduces drying time. It is compact in size, and therefore can be taken with you in your travels. I should also note that because it is so efficient in its ability to radically reduce drying time, that it is my hair dryer of choice. Given that I have naturally curly, and dry, hair I often avoid heated styling tools because of the damage that they do to my hair, but this hair dryer is exquisite and so perfectly suited to drier hair types (like mine).

FOREO ISSA Hybrid Toothbrush (Reviewed HERE): There is no question that it's very important to find an effective toothbrush that can effectively clean teeth and gums, and electronic sonic toothbrushes definitely have a tendency to do a better job of cleaning than standard manual toothbrushes. I have used a wide variety of electric toothbrushes over the years, but I was the most excited about trying the FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH. I love the innovative modern design, the ergonomic handle for comfortable use and the combination of gentle silicone bristles that surround the inner core of PBT polymer bristles.

The silicone bristles gently and effectively clean gums while the combination of silicone bristles and PBT polymer bristles do a remarkable job cleaning my teeth. On the back of the brush one finds a series of raised ridges that were specifically designed to clean the tongue, and it does so quite effectively and efficiently because of their shape in conjunction with the sonic vibration.

I use my FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH in Lavender every single day, except when I am traveling light, and I can say that it is gentle enough so as not to be rough on my teeth, gums and tongue, but powerful enough to thoroughly clean without stripping, and it does a formidable job removing plaque, whitening my teeth and leaving my mouth feeling exceedingly well cleaned. I use a variety of toothpastes from the whitening variety to normal drugstore brands, and the end result is consistently high performing. 

I have not tried the all silicone brush head that FOREO makes, but the FOREO ISSA HYBRID is definitely my preference since I find that the silicone bristles alone don't provide enough friction for my liking when it comes to cleaning my teeth. I really like for my teeth to feel ultra clean, and for me the inner core of PBT polymer bristles provide the requisite degree of tension against the teeth to remove food particles, stains and plaque.

If you are looking to buy yourself a sonic toothbrush, or were planning to buy one for someone on your holiday gift list, then the FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH is definitely worth your consideration.

($149.00 from FOREOSephoraRevolveNeiman MarcusNordstromSkinstoreSkinCare RX and Net-A-Porter)
According to FOREO,

The FOREO ISSA Hybrid Sonic Toothbrush provides a more vigorous brushing experience for those with more plaque buildup. Its brush head features gentle silicone bristles for use on the gum area and PBT polymer bristles on the inner segment of the brush head to cover the surface area of the teeth. The brush head's unique cross design offers both a massage and gentle clean on the gums as well as a stronger cleaning experience.

The ISSA™ Hybrid Brush is designed with soft, gentle silicone bristles for the gum area, while integrating PBT polymer bristles on the inner segment of the brush head cover the surface area of the teeth. This unique cross-design both massages and provides gums with a gentle cleaning as well as a stronger cleaning experience—making it perfect for those who have more plaque buildup. Its 3D flexible brush head allows it to reach every crevice of the mouth. 
Overall Assessment: If you are looking for convenient and effective beauty gadgets for yourself or for people on your holiday gift list, then these are definitely Lola approved! Do you have favorite beauty gadgets? If so, which ones are worth trying?
