The Wrinkle Refiner:

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro, £430

“Unlike other at-home anti-ageing laser treatments, this works on the entire face using a combination of 100 red and blue LED lights (like some professional, in-salon light therapy sessions). I love the fact you only need to use it for just three minutes a day. There’s no denying that there was a noticeable reduction in the dark spots on my face after a month’s use. I did come out in a few blemishes though, but there was no burning sensation or redness at all. However, it’s worth noting it’s not a quick fix and you need to be patient.”

– Emma Wilson, PA to Georgie Coleridge Cole

The Instant Glow-Giver:

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Pro Hydro-Mist Steamer, £119

“While initially I thought steaming your face was – pardon the pun – a load of hot air, it’s now become part of my weekly skincare regime. I steam my face once or twice a week, as per the brand’s recommendation and immediately my complexion feels and looks revived. It’s easy to use and a quick five minutes noticeably radiates my complexion.”

– Hattie Cotmore, Lead Content Coordinator

The Temporary Tightener:

NURSE Jamie UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller, £55

“Skincare experts rave about rollers for the instant gratification they give, and after using this religiously for a month, I can see why. Encrusted with 24 massaging stones, I noticed a difference after just one five-minute session. My eyes appeared lifted and my cheekbones were more visible than ever before. While this device looks intimidating, it’s not painful, it just feels like a really deep facial massage. It’s worth noting that while the roller does tighten, and boost circulation, it doesn’t aid in the production of skin’s collagen, so don’t expect super, plump skin after using it – you’ll have to seek a professional for that.”
– Rebecca Hull, Health & Beauty Editor 

The Clean Sweep:

Magnitone Cleansing Brush, £90

“With bristles that are slightly stiff, this brush was really effective on my T-zone, where most of my dead skin collects. While firm, it’s also soft and gentle enough to be used on the cheeks every day. Another bonus? It’s surprisingly lightweight and slim. My complexion has never felt so satisfyingly clean.”

– Pascale Day, Features Writer & Sub Editor

The Skin Smoother:

GloPRO BeautyBio Microneedling Regeneration Tool, £199

“I absolutely loved using this roller. I see such a difference after using it 2-3 times a week, but to get the full benefit of it, you really need to keep it up. I’ve noticed my skincare absorbs so much easier and everything feels generally more effective after I’ve rolled. You can expect it to feel a little drying and stingy the first time you use it – a bit like you’ve had a very, very mild peel, but it’s completely bearable and soon wears off. I’ve seen such a huge, glowing improvement in my skin’s texture, it’s feels plumper too. I’m obsessed.”

– Mia Luckie, Marketing Manager

The Zit Zapper:

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask, £59.99

“ As someone who’s suffered from acne for years, I’ve tried every lotion and potion under the sun to fix it and nothing has worked. After 30 sessions of this mask though, I’ve noticed a visible improvement. Within just one week, my pores and blackheads had reduced in size, and my large outbreaks became less regular. Not to mention scarring – it didn’t get rid of it, but it’s certainly smoothed the surface. The only downside? After 30 uses you need to buy a new activator to use with your mask, but for the clear skin it’s given me, I’ll definitely be keeping it up.”
