Finding ways to mimic a facialist’s hands has stayed at the top of my skin-care priorities during this quarantine—my bathroom counter could practically be mistaken for an aesthetician’s workspace, littered with high-tech-looking tools my husband is afraid to touch. While much of the world stays home, D.I.Y. beauty routines have become the norm, meaning effective devices are all the more necessary. After testing out a series of hard-working facial tools that promise to lift, sculpt, and de-puff—including a kitchen-ready hack from It girl Irene Kim—I discovered that many were under $100.
Here are 10 of the best facial tools—no-brainer ways to get your skin in shape and impress your facialist upon your next visit.
1. Foreo Luna Play Plus
Designed to lift dirt, oil, and bacteria out from the skin, Foreo’s cleansing device gently removes impurities to reveal a healthy, glowing complexion—morning or night.
2. Skin Gym High-Frequency Wand
Reduce bacteria on the skin and eliminate zits with Skin Gym’s high-frequency wand. The facialist-approved device zaps stubborn pimples and helps prevent the formation of new ones.
