Beauty Tools for the 21st Century

We’re sometimes wary of technology—especially after our computer crashes!—but when tech meets beauty, we’re usually floored with the results. Lucky for us, a host of new launches this spring gives us awesome, time-saving gadgets that we’re definitely stocking our bathrooms with.
Fresh, clean skin…fast
Wave your hand in front of the sensor and the automated dispenser of Clearasil’s PerfectaWash squirts out the perfect amount of cleanser every time. Available in two formulas, Superfruit Splash and Soothing Plant Extracts, both contain salicylic acid to keep skin clear and healthy.
A dazzling Smile
Brighter, whiter teeth (minus the dentist) are possible thanks to the Tanda Pearl. The combo of the non-sensitizing gel and ion technology help to drive oxygen molecules deep into the enamel, removing stains in just five days without damaging teeth.
Sophisticated eye makeup
We love detailed eye makeup, but getting it right can be complicated. It’s something we’d never do when we only have a few minutes to get ready, which is why we’re loving Dior Velvet Eyes stickers. Four fancy designs simply stick to your lash line for a polished liner look. And at the end of the night, just peel them off!
A blast of moisture
Shooting an aerosol-powered mist at your face may seem intimidating, but after experimenting with it I quickly came to realize that Kate Somerville’s latest creation, the Dermal Quench Liquid Lift, was like a facial in a can. The blast of moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and oxygen gave my skin a pretty—and instant—glow.
Quick blowout
The most time-consuming part of our morning routine is drying and styling our hair. Luckily, we can do both at the same time with John Frieda’s Salon Shape Hot Air Brush, a round brush with a built-in dryer that turns our damp hair into gorgeous waves.
