FOR IMPROVED CONVENIENCE

When it comes to cleansing tools, Clarisonic needs no further introduction. Developed to give a deeper and more thorough cleanse in just a minute while being gentle to skin at the same time, the original Clarisonic went a step further, touting to cleanse six times better than using your hands alone. For those who haven’t gotten on the bandwagon because of portability issues, its new Mia FIT will do the trick. Featuring the same technology, this condensed version is lighter and more compact, making it perfect for travelling or for the gym. While each Mia FIT comes with Clarisonic’s Skin Illuminating Cleanser, it is suitable for use with any non-granular cleanser and makes for an ideal addition to any skincare regimen.

The hassle about bringing skincare tools with you? Not only do they tend to be bulky and heavy, you also need to bring along charging cables if you’re going on a long trip. Which is why FOREO’s Luna Play is absolute genius. While it retains all of its original size’s benefits, i.e. a silicone coated surface that inhibits bacteria growth and gentle oscillation that shakes accumulated gunk loose from skin, this new cleansing toy is small enough to fit into the palm of a four-year-old. It comes with 100 uses-worth of battery power so you can just toss it out when it’s drained—no charging cable mess.

There’s nothing quite as pampering as a facial massage that not only soothes your senses but also helps plump and energise your skin. ReFa’s lineup of skin massagers lets you enjoy all that in the comfort of your own home. Developed based on the drainage action of a skilled esthetician’s hands, the ReFa O STYLE device has a Multi-Fit Roller that makes it suitable for use around the mouth and eyes to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and crow’s feet respectively. In addition, this device also sends microcurrents to improve circulation for a more lifted appearance.

FOR RECHARGING TIRED EYES

If you’re often plagued with tired and puffy eyes, try Talika’s Youth Energy Booster. Using LED Phototherapy with sonic and micro-vibration technology, this handy eye zone massager works with your preferred eye cream to help boost absorption. The emission of orange and red lights help stimulate collagen production for firmer, more resilient skin, while its vibration helps stimulate cell function for optimal cellular activity.

FOR ENHANCED PRODUCT ABSORPTION

Since Clinique first introduced its super lightweight Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, it has been a hit thanks to its singular, fuss-free mode. Using a sonic technology that vibrates gently to complement your skincare regimen, its unique brush head has an angled tip that uses stiffer bristles to target the T-zone and the corners of the nose for a deeper, more thorough cleansing action. Further boost product penetration into the skin by switching to its Sonic System Massaging Treatment Applicator while applying your favourite night cream. The metal applicator keeps bacteria at bay while refreshing and toning skin upon contact. The micro-vibrating action also helps stimulate micro-circulation and enhances the skin’s ability to absorb products.

Frequently used as a form of medical therapy for patients who suffer from nerve paralysis, NuFace’s range of devices uses microcurrent technology by emitting soft and gentle microcurrent waves deep beneath the skin surface to target facial muscles. Similar to getting a workout, the facial muscles are gradually toned, eventually leading to a more lifted appearance. These microcurrents also help support the production of collagen and elastic for denser, more resilient skin. With three intensity levels and a five-minute auto shut-off mode, this handy device can be used to lift sagging cheeks and brows for on-the-go facelifts.

FOR THREE-IN-ONE BENEFITS

Developed with Japanese massage maestros, Philips’ VisaPure Advanced Facial Device’s Revitalizing Massage head performs the Petrissage massage technique, a combination of kneading and tapping motions to improve blood circulation and relax facial muscles for a deeply revitalised glow. In addition, thanks to Philips’ Customized DualMotion technology, the attachments are interchangeable. Snap on the Cleansing head for a deep-cleansing effect or the Fresh Eyes head to depuff and refresh tired peepers.

FOR AT-HOME PHOTOTHERAPY

Do you have a penchant of high-tech solutions that deliver results but are super gentle on the skin? Then check out Skin Inc’s Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light. In-built with three light modes, the red light helps support collagen and elastic synthesis, the yellow light brightens dull skin, and the blue light soothes and decongests acne-prone and sensitive skin. It also has a low frequency therapy mode that helps boost product penetration. All you have to do is use a water-based serum of your choice–perfect for in-flight DIY facials.
