6 Beauty Gadgets that are Worth the Splurge

With so many beauty gadgets coming to market recently, it’s hard to know which ones are really worth investing your cash into. Most of us don’t have hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars lying around to purchase a hyped up beauty gadget that’s just going to sit on a shelf; we need it to work. So, today I am showing you 6 beauty gadgets that I personally own and think are worth the splurge. Do you own any beauty gadgets?

beauty gadgets


1. PMD Personal Microderm: This mini, personal microderm machine operates similar to a professional one except for it’s much, much, much smaller. It comes with a few exfoliating discs that offer different levels of exfoliation to match what your microderm needs are. Here is my warning though, this little guy actually does its job and can be pretty aggressive. You need to follow the protocols/technique when using this and also avoid using any pre-exfoliation like a retin-a or anything else that would thin your skin.  $179.00 (www.nordstroms.com)

2. Tria Laser Hair Removal 4X: For an at home laser hair removal machine, the Tria does fantastically and you feel rather fancy while using it. This is the only FDA approved, laser hair removal machine for use at home on the market and guess what? It uses the same diode laser technology that dermatologists love because it targets and disable unwanted hair follicles. If you are worried about this beauty gadget not being effective with your skin-tone, you can go to the Tria website and they will tell you if the Tria Laser Hair Removal 4X is suitable for your skin. $449.00 (www.sephora.com)

3. Temptu Personal Airbrush System: If you want an easy-to-use personal airbrush system that will give you a perfectly flawless face, you need to own this beauty gadget. When you buy the Flawless Complexion Kit, you get an airbrush machine with a mess-free AIRpod™ airbrush foundation that suits your skin-tone and clicks easily into your airbrush machine. This personal airbrush system offers sheer and buildable coverage and stays put all day long regardless of rain, humidity and hot climates. This is a must buy in my opinion. $170.00 (www.temptu.com)

4. Baby Quasar: For an at-home device that stimulates the production of collagen and elastic, you need to check the baby quasar out. This anti-aging beauty gadget uses light-red, dark-red, and amber combined with infrared light, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. In addition, red-light therapy also helps to stimulate new and healthy skin cells. What’s different about the Baby Quasar in contrast to other similar systems is that it’s 4X more powerful that it’s closest competitor, has high quality anodized aluminum, dermatologist recommended, and has a 60 day money back guarantee. You can’t go wrong when buying this anti-aging beauty gadget. $399.00 (www.nordstroms.com)

5. Glo Teeth Whitening System: For fast, painless, and effective at-home teeth whitening, the Glo Teeth Whitening System is the way to go and you will look super high-tech using it. According to Glo, ” The GLO Device, when used with the GLO Brilliant™ Whitening Gels and GLO Brilliant™ Whitening Mouthpiece, uses the patented Guided Light Optics Technology and illuminates with a brilliant blue light as it gently warms up. The light and heat accelerate the GLO Brilliant™ Whitening Gel giving you faster, longer-lasting results.” Personally, this is the only device that I have used on a consistant basis, as I know the results are always phenomenal. $199.00 (only at www.sephora.com)

6. Clarisonic Mia2: If you want skin that is 6 times cleaner than if you were to just use your hands, the Clarisonic Mia2 is the beauty gadget for you. By using Clarisonics patented sonic technology, it removes skin impurities in your pores so that your skincare products are more effective. You face will also feel extremely soft, and your pores will be more closed. This high-tech skincare brush is perfect for every-day use and is extremely travel friendly. $149.00 (www.Nordstroms.com)
