Enhance your home spa routine with these latest handheld beauty gadgets.
Bliss’ Fabulips “pout”-o-matic lip-perfecting system (HK$520) is fitted with massaging nubs that provide more than 450 swift yet gentle rotations per minute. The device comes with the nourishing Fabulips sugar lip scrub, which alone would cost HK$165. Together, they work to buff away dead skin to leave lips looking healthier and pinker.
Neutrogena’s Microdermabrasion System (HK$329) is a two-in-one device that cleanses skin and encourages product absorption. When used with the brand’s Rejuvenating Puffs, the device is said to reduce signs of ageing through gentle exfoliation. Its microvibrations also massage the skin and improve blood circulation, which in time yields firmer, brighter-looking skin.
Talika’s Light Duo+ (HK$3,350) is a triple-action light therapy said to be inspired by Nasa’s finding that visible light rejuvenates cell metabolism. Daily treatments with the USB-charged device lasting a mere four minutes bring, it is claimed, a variety of benefits. While the red wavelength soothes and combats redness, the yellow one stimulates collagen production and the green one reduces dark spots. Ionotherapy and micro-vibrations help the skin to absorb products.
Tanda’s Zap Power (HK$790) is good news for those with acne-prone skin. With the help of non-UV blue light, this rechargeable device promises to kill zit-causing bacteria without drying or irritating the skin. Sonic vibration and warming functions are included to open pores to maximise light exposure and soothe skin. Use it for two minutes three times a day on affected areas to break the acne cycle and achieve a clearer, blemish-free complexion.
