Not only can a dry brush slough off dead and flaky skin, but it might also increase circulation, detoxify the body, and improve the appearance of cellulite. What a reviewer says: “I’ve been using this body brush to exfoliate my skin once a day and have noticed less ingrown hairs and more soft skin––I love it! The handle is sturdy, and the strap fits my hand perfectly, with just a little room to spare. The bristles are quality and give my body a good scrub. I like that it even comes with a hook for you to hang your brush on. Waiting to see what long-term body-brushing effects are, but so far, I’m diggin’ this brush!”
This face roller is an Amazon best seller, and it has over 14,000 ratings and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It’s a more eco-friendly version of blotting papers since you can use it over and over to soak up excess oil. What a reviewer says: “I have horrible combination skin, simultaneously dry and oily. My nose gets it the worst. Nothing else I’ve used has helped for more than mere minutes. This works for hours. After using this, I don’t have to keep wiping oil off the nose pads of my glasses every few minutes.”
Use this facial massager to promote circulation, firm and lift the skin, and improve any signs of fatigue. It has a vibration mode that you can turn on and off. What a reviewer says: “This is incredible! My first day of using it, I eliminated a lot of my neck ‘hang!’ I am absolutely incredulous! It has definitely firmed up my face. I am absolutely thrilled I found this… and at this price! There is no way that I could do this with my fingers as a massage and have this result. My fingers would be worn out. This is so easy, and the results are fantastic.”
This powerful suction tool will remove blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin. It features five different suction levels, plus four removable heads you can swap in and out, depending on your skin’s needs. What a reviewer says: “This device works great! I have used it several times on my T-zone and have noticed a great improvement and decongestion of my pores. I also appreciate the several different-sized heads, as it helps me achieve better results depending on where I am using the device. You can also choose what level of suction you want, which makes it easier on my sensitive skin. Great product!”
Fun fact: This steamer actually does more than just steaming. It can also work as a room humidifier and a towel warmer. How cool is that? It also comes with a five-piece blemish and blackhead extractor kit. What a reviewer says: “I love using this NanoSteamer! Gives a good amount of hot steam, which helps open up my pores for easy blackhead/whitehead extraction. I tried a different brand of facial steamer before and was completely unsatisfied––it barely gave any steam and wasn’t hot enough. This NanoSteamer does exactly what it’s supposed to do! It’s almost like having a mini sauna at home. Just be careful not to put your face too close to the device. The steam is pretty hot. I like to cover with the towel while using the steamer. It helps for steam not to escape.”
Sometimes, just your favorite face wash and hands aren’t going to cut it, and you just need a deeper clean. These silicone brushes are gentle enough for sensitive skin but will still smooth, exfoliate, and cleanse the skin. When you use one, you also get a nice face massage. What a reviewer says: “Awesome. I’m a licensed esthetician and know a thing or two about skincare, but unfortunately, I have such sensitive skin that most exfoliants I’ve tried for myself really irritate my skin and can end up triggering eczema or psoriasis flares. This is a gentle enough way to exfoliate that it gets the job done for me without irritation.”
This vibrating facial massager has two interchangeable heads. One can be used to stimulate collagen production and circulation, and the other can de-puff the eyes and reduce dark circles. What a reviewer says: “This feels wonderful when I’m using it. It seems to me that it really does help smooth wrinkles and helps the circles under my eyes. I liked it so much that I ordered one for my daughter, and she, too, loves it.”
This kit comes with five different extractor tools to remove blackheads, pimples, whiteheads, and more. You’ll want to be extra careful and as gentle as possible when using these. Don’t forget to sterilize the kit each time you use it. What a reviewer says: “This kit along with using a retinol serum has really cleared up my skin. I was getting terrible hormonal acne, and wearing a mask all day as a speech pathologist to work with patients hasn’t helped either. I initially was getting breakouts on my chin because of the mask. The combination of the kit and the serum has really helped me. I can’t remember the last time my skin looked so clear and smooth. I like how this doesn’t leave terrible blotchy marks or big scabs on my face. It’s easy to use, and my skin heals up much quicker.”
Using this wand will promote cell turnover, leading to smoother, more radiant, and tighter skin. The high frequency technology also targets inflammation and blemishes. Along with the handle, the kit comes with four wands that have different uses. For example, there’s one to eliminate acne, another to treat broad areas like the cheeks and forehead, and another to energize hair follicles. What a reviewer says: “Wow. I was skeptical, but I am so happy I took a chance and bought this. There is seriously a noticeable difference in my skin after only two uses!!!! I love this and am so happy I tried it. My skin looks more firm and feels more smooth. I am pretty shocked at how quickly I saw an improvement in my skin.”
With five different speeds, this cleansing brush will deeply clean your pores, remove makeup, and massage the skin. One full charge will last for three hours, so it’s easy to take it along with you. What a reviewer says: “100% of the time when I washed my face prior to buying this product, there was always dirt left behind. I am so impressed with this little gadget! It’s soft and has different speeds, so you can adjust it to your comfort level. This product blew me away, and I absolutely recommend it to everyone. You will not be disappointed!”
So apparently, spatulas aren’t just for the kitchen. This smart device cleanses your pores and skin and helps your skincare products really sink in. It has four different modes: Cleaning, Lifting, Ion+ (another cleaning mode), and Ion- (absorption mode). What a reviewer says: “This skin scrubber is awesome! After using it, my skin became smoother and cleaner than before, and I had less breakouts. I guess it’s because it helps remove blackheads, dead skin cells, unwanted oils, makeup residue, dirt, or other impurities from your skin.”
Regular micro-needling can increase circulation, improve radiance, and help with the absorption of skincare products. This tool contains 540 titanium needles that are 0.25mm, which makes it effective and safe. What a reviewer says: “After using this micro-needle roller only a few times, I definitely noticed a subtle difference! My skin looks more vibrant, feels smoother, and some fine lines are less noticeable. For the record, I am 50 years old, live in a northern climate, and have had severely dry skin my entire life. My skin is surprisingly ‘tough,’ and any method or product described as ‘gentle’ or ‘sensitive’ has zero effect. This derma-roller is just the right amount of a wake-up call my skin needs! I apply hyaluronic acid right after needling, which seems to absorb much more thoroughly, and continue to apply sunscreen as usual, every day.”
Dealing with facial puffiness? These cryo-sticks are going to save you. Just chill them before use and apply all over your face when you need it. They’ll also improve inflammation and elasticity. What a reviewer says: “This magic ice globe’s perfect for calming inflamed skin and soothing any puffiness. Additionally, they regulate blood circulation of your face, tighten and firm skin, and aid in allergy relief. It’s so important for my beautiful face. A must!”
Dermaplaning is a great way to exfoliate and remove any peach fuzz. This device vibrates and has a LED light so you’re able to see every spot clearly. What a reviewer says: “I used it for the first time this morning, and I am absolutely sold. I could not believe how much super-fine peach fuzz I had along with dead skin. My skin has never felt this smooth. My makeup went on perfectly, and some of the discoloration I was experiencing is completely gone. I have sensitive skin, and there was very, very little irritation. The light is extremely helpful.”
If you ask me, this is one of the best cleansing brushes out there, and it’s totally worth the price tag. It delivers 7000 vibrations per minute, so it deeply cleans your pores and skin while also working to lift and firm the skin. What a reviewer says: “I’m genuinely just so happy with this cleanser. Not only does my face feel clean after I use it, but it feels so soft. I also love using the back side of the cleanser to help massage in my vitamin c serum or just as a facial massager in general. My skin feels just as good or even better than it does after a spa facial.”
This kit has both a facial roller and a gua sha tool for all of your skincare needs. The facial roller helps promote circulation, eliminates dark circles, relaxes muscles, and reduces wrinkles. The gua sha tool is also great for improving circulation and relaxing muscles. What a reviewer says: “My face does not look puffy, tired, or swollen as it has before. My skin is smoother and softer, too. It is easy to use. Use it twice a day to get better results. Roll it over your face in smooth, fluid movements.”
Here’s another highly rated micro-needling tool. It’s designed for beginners, so don’t feel too intimidated if you’re new to this routine. Make sure to apply a moisturizer or serum after use. What a reviewer says: “I have been using my derma-roller for two weeks now, and I am very happy with the results. I have used it once a week and use vitamin c serum morning and night. My face feels moisturized, and my acne scars have faded significantly.”
Whenever my skin is tired, puffy, or red, I like to use an ice roller to refresh it quickly. It just feels so nice, and I’m always so pleased with the results. This ice roller is the perfect affordable buy. What a reviewer says: “Extremely affordable and feels great on my face right when I wake up in the morning! I can feel the difference after a couple of rolls along my puffy eyes and face. It soothes my puffiness with the cold but bearable feeling. And it does stay cool for a good amount of time. Best thing is it’s not a watery mess.” Next, If I Could Only Use 30 Beauty Products for the Rest of My Life, I’d Pick These
