Happy holidays! As Beautémia has seen its 5th year anniversary this year, I decided to make a special post on luxury beauty tools that I approve of :). Whether you are looking for beauty tools to accelerate skincare/make-up results or just to maintain, you will take most advantages out of those tools that I will introduce in the long run. And if you are someone who's very invested in skincare like me, then you will get the most benefits of your expensive skincare products by complementing them with these tools on the side. So get ready to redeem your Nordstrom notes if you have saved enough from accumulating points through shopping this year! (I've already used mine :3) Let's get started!
This facial brush by Sisley was the very first skincare cleansing tool that I ever tried even way before using my Clarisonic. It isn't that I don't like Clarisonic, but I still find Sisley Gentle Brush to be more suitable for daily use as it's very soft and kind to skin. It also comes with a cap, so if you are a frequent traveller, you will love it as it's very light to carry around.
I personally believe that whatever touches our skin often is what we need to focus on for our skin to age beautifully. These cotton pads are very plush and soft to skin so they doesn't irritate skin at all. If you have sensitive skin and have been wanting to use cotton pads, then you should try those out :). The gentler it feels, the better it is for skin!
Frankly, not all the facial devices work as they are advertised, and most of all, they don't work as efficiently as the ones that you get at medspa or dermatologists. NuFACE Facial Toning Device is the exception. You can notice the difference even after one usage, and if you are dilligent enough to dedicate yourself to the routine, your skin will thank you in the years to come. It's especially great for facial contouring along the jawline and overall lifting. It simply works!
If you are looking for a gift for someone special, this will be a great gift too as my man got me this mirror, and I've been telling him how much I've been enjoying ever since! ❤ My place is getting Simplehuman-ised, that's how much I love their products. This mirror is the best that I've ever tried and the company offers great after care too. Whether it's for make-up application or skincare, you won't miss anything on your face with it. It's the truth telling mirror :3.
The quality of Mason Pearson hair b1rushes are unbeatable. They last for years, mine still looks and functions great even after 6 years. Skin doesn't stop at only face and body. The scalp and hair care is as important since they are all connected when it comes to anti-aging. The best part is that the company offers different solutions for different hair types, rather than just one kind of brush.
As much as Elemis is known for its skincare, it offers extensive range of effective body care products. Amongst all, I love their body brush not just because of the benefits of brushing body such as cellulite control, but also due to its durability. My first one lasted for over 5 years, and I got the second one simply because I got bored of it as it still looked fine XD. Now I have two brushes; one in the bathroom and one next to my couch.
Pillowcases are something that not many people care so much about, but I personally see them as very important as we spend 1/3 of our day in bed. If you want to keep any unwanted spots at bay, pillowcases are one of the top on this list to check. The beauty about those silk pillowcases is that they don't take away all the expensive goodies that we put on our face and hair!
I personally have bought and tried different beauty tools, but those are the ones that I keep coming back to, rather than staying somewhere in the corner of my bathroom cabinet. The efficacy of those products are great for home usage at least from my years of personal experience, and they are easily available online at Nordstrom that also does international delivery if any of those are not easily to get hold of in your country. By the way, if you are actually thinking of getting one of those as a last minute gift for someone, you can also just buy online and pick up at nearby Nordstrom too. I use this method often when I get something secretly for my man, so he can't track my strategic move, hehe >_<. Hope you all enjoy your holidays!
