6 Of The Best Beauty Tools You Need In Your Life Right Now

Hey Lovelies!

2019 is here and there’s never been a better time for clearing out your beauty cupboard and replacing yesterday’s skincare saviours with brand new innovation that is sooo much better. Check out the 6 best beauty tools that will transform your complexion. I’ve tested these products and if they were an ice cream, they would be Bailey’s Haagen Dazs (instead of the outdated refrozen vanilla in the bottom of the freezer – you get my point).

1.Sarah Chapman’s The Facialist, £28, cultbeauty.com

Although this looks like something a Star Trek Voyager crew member may point at you, it’s actually something far more useful. This quirky little device will literally transform your complexion. The facial massager simulates the same movements as that of Sarah’s celebrity-adored signature facial. Not only does it achieve a significant lift and radiant glow, but the clever tool also makes light work of ridding toxins and puffiness. Hooray!

2.Foreo Luna 2, £169, www.foreo.com

This has to be my best beauty tool and when I remember to use it, I never fail to reap the compliments. It makes such a difference to my complexion; not merely cleansing, but it also successfully targets and treats various skin concerns (particularly irksome fine lines). One trick I have is to add facial oil or serum and the little gem works all of those awesome ingredients into my skin. I love you Foreo Luna 2.

3.The Beauty Blender by Beautyblender, £17, www.cultbeatuy.co.uk

Everyone who loves makeup should own one of these priceless beauty tools. Perfect for use on any makeup, this gadget seamlessly creates that much sought-after flawless finish. #Nomorestreaks!

4.Skin Roller, £42, swissclinic.co.uk

Good quality derma rollers (when used correctly) can really work wonders on the skin. I’ve tried quite a few products by Swiss Clinic and they never fail to impress. Swiss Clinic’s Skin Roller combines 540 micro needles of which effectively work to trigger collagen production, improve circulation and stimulate the formation of new skin. Within a couple of weeks of use, wrinkles appear reduced and my complexion looks and feels amazing! I love this.

5.19 Momme Housewife Silk Pillowcase, £26, www.lilysilk.com

I can’t state enough just how much I cherish my silk pillowcase. If you don’t want premature creases and wrinkles (DUH!) the silk pillowcase is the way to go. Your skincare products will stay on your face (rather than be soaked up by the pillow) and you will find you awaken without the dreaded indent that’s made itself unmistakably known in a glaring diagonal fashion across your face! I thank you oh wondrous silk pillowcase makers! Check out this one at www.lilysilk.com

6.Dyson Airwrap, £449.96, qvc.co.uk

Want luscious locks without the painstaking truth (that you are slowly destroying your hair with heat)? Dyson’s Airwrap’s genius technology has made it possible for us to enjoy incredible hairstyles – but without using extreme heat. #hairgoals!

Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are WAY Better Than Chocolate And Flowers

Hey Lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whilst we are aware it may well be yet another well-marketed way of cashing in on the customer, we need something to cheer us up on the frankly freezing cold and dreary winter mornings – and what better way of doing this than imagining the postman falling over as he struggles to carry a tonne of cards and presents to your door? For anyone wondering what to gift the love of their life this February 14, read on:

1.Personalised Wood Memory Box For Couples by DUST AND THINGS, £17.49 (Was £34.99), notonthehighstreet.com

As far as romance goes – this is way up there. Made from solid pine wood, this rustic-looking personalised memory is the perfect gift for you to keep tokens of your sweetest memories and experiences safe, so they can be treasured forever.

OK, so maybe there is something that beats the memory box; behold the Tiffany’s Bead Bracelet. As a true sucker for all Tiffany’s jewellery, I may be slightly biased – but I think this beautifully elegant bead bracelet featuring a mini heart tag in pink would be a winner this Valentine’s Day.

3.Personalised Plaited Leather Bracelet, £14.99, prezzybox.com

Whilst it might not go down to well should he buy you an expensive Tiffany’s bracelet and I return you gifted him this – something has to be said for the romantic gesture this man’s bracelet evokes. Featuring a matte metal engraved charm, he doesn’t need to be a hippie or surfer to appreciate this gorgeously stylish band. After all, each time he glances at his watch/Fitbit/sleeve he will (hopefully) smile at your thoughtful declaration of love.

4.Personalised I Love You Candle, £8.99, findmeagift.co.uk

Everyone loves a candle, don’t they? Even if they aren’t at the top of your fave list, come the most romantic night of the year, these little gems are a must-have. So, what better way to show your adoration for that special someone by making them their perfect meal, amidst candlelight that is that little bit more special?

5.Multi Photo Upload Framed Print – Photos With Message, £19.99, gettingpersonal.co.uk
