Beauty Devices and Tools to Try in 2018

We are living in a wonderful era when latest technologies in beauty and wellness can be used at home by a regular consumer. If 5 years ago, you only had a choice to go for a in-office treatments, now you can do most of the things at home: from laser hair removal to peelings, micro needling, skin toning and etc.

Although, I feel a little bit uncomfortable using some of the at-home devices myself (knowing myself for burning my skin with a simple wax) there are some devices and tool that I’d like to try this year.

So, today I’ll be sharing with you my wishlist on beauty devices and tools that I’m not scared to try on my own.

1. AMIKA Polished Perfection Straightening Brush

Thermal straightening brushes have become very popular last year, and this particular one has been featured in Allure magazine. This device combines the straightener and the brush to create smooth hair with just one stroke.

Amika brush incorporates special technology called Double Negative Ion Technology that maximize the negative ions to create shiny, frizz-free result. Ceramic bristles make each hair heat up fast and evenly to reduce the damage to the hair from the heat.

I’ve just got this one yesterday as a pre-birthday gift. I haven’t tried it yet, but can’t wait to try it on my hair. Would like to see the unboxing video? Let me know in the comments down below!

Shellac has become a thing recently, and honestly, this is the only way for me to keep my nails on point. This small device is equipped with LED light and USB and looks very travel friendly to me. And it is so cute! It comes in a kit with gel nail polish, a cuticle stick, mini nail file and 10 remover pads for easy removal which makes is quite affordable. It takes only 30 sec to dry each nail and the device is reversible so that you can use it on your toes too!

It’s hard to admit, but cellulites is something most of the women have from the age of 18. Although there are no permanent cure from it, the skin can be improved by some massages and in-office treatments. Now, these procedures are available at home.

This body toning device has shown really good results during the clinic study. And if not for the price… Anyways, I’m still going to keep it in my wishlist.
