Are at-home devices & beauty tools worth the hype?

Navigating through the jungle of at-home-skin-care devices can be tricky. You cant exactly give them a little “test drive” and some of these devices can leave our wallets looking a little sad. However, every now and again a new shiny device shows up on our Instagram feed or google explore page and we see something that has the potential to supercharge our skincare routine and leave us looking and feeling like we just turned back the clock ten years. We put this post together to answer your top questions. Is this device worth the money? Will it genuinely work? 

The answer is YES to the following ones that our Dermal Therapists have tried and tested themselves! From cheekbone sculpting jade rollers to acne busting LED devices. Read on to hear the explanation as to why and how these results-driven devices are worth every cent.

BT Sonic

The BT-Sonic was designed by skin experts, to give the client an at-home tool that will effectively clean and cleanse their skin in between visits. The triangular cleansing head reaches even the hardest to reach contours of the face, delivering results in places round brushes simply can’t go and it/s hygienic, silver ion infused Azul silicone bristles deliver superb cleansing and exfoliating results without stressing the skin the way traditional brushes can. The micro-sonic waves pulsate at up to 20,000 vibrations per second, removing dirt and debris and optimising the performance of cleansers, serums and masks.

Dermalist Skinwand

The Dermalist cleansing brush, features a silicone brush head as opposed to a traditional brush head. This is ideal because it is non-porous, and therefore much more resistant to bacterial build-up, so these are a great option for those with sensitive or blemish-prone skin. The bristles are also softer and more pliable, so are overall more gentle on your complexion. Perfect for anyone looking to boost their at-home cleansing routine. The addition of the gentle silicone head makes it the perfect device for younger teenage complexions too.

For an added de-puffing effect, store your Gua Sha and crystal roller in the fridge to keep it nice and cold.
