Electric Beauty – Spa Appliances

29 Sep

Jane Jetson had great skin – either it was the stressless pushbutton housekeeping OR I’m betting she had instant skincare too. And so do we! Thanks to research and technological advances, many spas are increasingly incorporating machines that do everything from killing cellulite to fading freckles.

But what about the home version? Are they really just toys or jump up for joys? A few of these Makeover Machines:

Clarisonic – Before the Clari as I call it, came along, the only thing ultrasonically cleaned in my home was my jewelry. Now AM/PM use of the ultrasonic skin smoother shakes my pores clean, my creams are absorbed quicker and my skin glows just like my gems.

No!No! Home Hair Removal – Despite the disconcerting smell of burning hair (you get used to it), this little miracle worker hurts less than epilation and keeps me fuzz free for weeks. And what grows back is getting sparser. This tips are pricey, but you can

buy in bulk.

Heated Eyelash Curlers – I’ve seen versions of these from Sephora to drugstores and they scare me. Reviewers have said the heat can break fragile lashes and the curl is meh. I’d steer clear.

Artemis Woman Heel SmootherPedicure pleasure! This sander (with nail filing attachments as well) smoothes my feet better than a pedicure. If Home Depot sold beauty tools – this would be a top item.

Evis MD Platinum Anti-Aging Red Light Therapy – Firmer skin and fainter freckles? Yes I get these benefits as do others with this handy dandy red light. It does add about 10 mins to your beauty routine. But worth it if you can’t afford or get to the spa for light therapy.

Temptu Spray On Foundation. This little tool claims to be the air brush for DIY makeup artists. The jury’s still out on this one as I haven’t tried it yet, but I hear it’s excellent.
