In under a month, users can expect to see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles – which can decrease by up to 35% due to the anti-ageing effect of the infrared light. Due to a flexible silicone construction, the device can reach all facial areas to ensure an even result. 

This product has won multiple awards, been featured in top beauty magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire and Elle. Once you’ve invested in it, it should last for years. 

2. FaceGym Pro

Forward-thinking brand FaceGym are the brains behind this innovative piece of beauty tech. While many of us work out to achieve a fit, toned physique and healthy body, the face is often neglected. The FaceGym Pro is like a full-on workout, using triple wave technology to keep those facial muscles in great shape.

With continued use, FaceGym Pro users should see a rejuvenated, more youthful-looking face peering back at them from the bathroom mirror.

3. Charlotte Tilbury Cryo Mask

This clever face mask uses acupressure and cryotherapy to achieve results after just a single 10 minute treatment. It’s also comfortable, drip-free and washable for re-use.

It’s like a facelift without the surgery – or the price tag. Following use, skin feels lifted, tightened and smoother. Pores shrink to improve the appearance of the skin, while also reducing the incidence of spots and other facial blemishes.  

This face mask can also reduce puffy eyes, lift a sagging jawline and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by using cold therapy, a technique Charlotte Tilbury swears by when preparing famous clients for stage appearances. 

4. Gua Sha

This twist on the modern classic cryo roller is a heart-shaped piece of pink quartz that is naturally eco-friendly and cruelty-free. The calming properties of rose quartz are well documented, and following use of a gua sha tool, the facial skin feels soothed as well as uplifted.

It even makes a pretty addition to any dressing table or bathroom – store it in a cut glass or ceramic dish to keep it handy for that last-minute facelift before you head out of the door. You can also pop it in the fridge to add a cooling effect each time it’s used.

A targeted three minute treatment is all it takes to banish new blemishes as soon as they begin to appear. The skincare tool uses blue LED light therapy to penetrate deep into the dermis, eliminating spot-causing bacteria while reducing redness and inflammation.
