Whether you choose a more holistic crystal face roller (rose quartz for love; jade for a feeling of balance), or prefer the deep – reaching benefits of a muscle – lifting face massager (Joanna Czech’s device specifically mimic the effects of her hands in her famous facial), once you’ve tried one of these gadgets there’s no going back. More just a way to refine features, sculpt the face and rejuvenate the skin (it stimulates the lymph system and boosts micro-circulation), just a few minutes of face rolling provides the perfect soothing to a stressful day. Keep your face roller beside the couch so you can roll while watching the latest box set, or store it in the glove box, a refrigerator or a bedside cabinet (unless it’s rose quartz, as this can keep you awake).
The Luxe Travel Set
While everyone else is spending their in-flight time busily layering on sheet masks, oils, serums and ampoules, this cozy Slip mini pillow and eye-mask duo guarantees relaxation and improved in – cabin rest. Both are made from pure silk, so skin and hair are left less dry (cotton can leach moisture) – now never travel without this set. I suggest spritzing the pillow with This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray or Votary Pillow Spray to maximize your potential sleep time before sitting back, feeling cozy and cocooned.
The Pro Makeup Brush Edit
All too often, the so-called ‘perfect’ makeup brush kit comes with 20-plus brushes, most of which are left redundant because no one knows exactly what are for. Personally curated to include only those brushes that leading makeup artist Rae Morris uses on a daily basis, this clever edit of eight covers all bases- from a gorgeous kabuki brush (use as a final step to lightly buff over the skin for a beautifully seamless, natural finish) to the perfectly thought – through lip, brow, base and eye brushes.
The Face – Firming Device
First launched in 2005 and FDA – approved, NuFace’s micro-current toning device is an excellent add-on to any regimen, as it works to both refine features and firm up contours. My only proviso is that to really see a difference, you have to actually use it, ideally five times a week for around three months. However, I always notice a brilliant, if short- term, change from just a one-off, pre-event session. Although there are programs to follow, you can also ‘freestyle’ (work up and out along the jaw, cheekbones and brows), making it super-easy to use while watching a movie, in bed or whenever you have clean skin and a spare five minutes.
The Instant Hair Smoother
GHD’s Glide Professional Hot Brush is guaranteed to give you back some time in your busy day because, one heated and ready to go (it takes seconds), it brings a salon-style finish to unruly morning-after hair. Faster and less effort to use than a hair dryer or hot iron, all you do is brush it through your hair to quickly calm down frizz, smooth out kinks and restore shine.
