I am not one of those ladies who refuse to admit when they need a little help, and am all for having my life made a little easier.  Here are three beauty gadgets I cannot do without.


Facial hair.  Ugh.  I seem to be sprouting new ones daily.  I used to tweeze, but honestly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.  So now I use an Emjoi Travel Epilator, £29.95.  Just a quick run over my upper lip and chin keeps me comfortably deforested and confident.  It’s a bit nippy at first, but after a few uses it isn’t painful at all.  It’s also deeply satisfying removing those unwanted whiskers.  Just a quick note – if you do choose to remove hair this way, it’s super important that you exfoliate regularly to prevent ingrown hairs.


I’m too unsteady to use an epilator on my brows, so I still need to tweeze there.  My eyesight isn’t what it was, so I rely on my Babyliss Illuminated Magnifying Mirror, £24.99, to help me see what I’m doing.  It’s also great for applying eye makeup or any other tasks when a little extra light and magnification helps.  Warning – seeing yourself in a 3x mirror can be a little scary at first.  You’ll have to trust me when I tell you your pores do not really look like that!


If you are worried about pores, there is an effective tool to help keep them clean – which visibly reduces their appearance.  It’s the Foreo Luna Go for Sensitive Skin, £85, and it gives your skin the most amazing sonic massage.  I like to use it in the morning with a gentle oil cleanser, but you can also use it to ‘super-charge’ your serum or moisturiser.  After about a week, you’ll notice your skin looks smoother and more luminous.
