The concept of beauty has come a long way since the ancient Egyptian standards of smoky-eyed pharaohs and alabaster skin. These days, the advancement in skincare and cosmetics industries, coupled with higher disposable incomes, have allowed women and men of all shapes, sizes, and features to enhance their looks to their hearts’ desires. With that, comes the birth of AI-powered devices smart enough to analyse your skin, the launch of space-age technologies to banish blemishes, and more. Here’s a look at five innovative and game-changing gadgets.

For taut and smooth skin: Skin Inc Trilight Body Sculpt Fit

Hot on the heels of Skin Inc’s Optimiser Voyage Trilight—the homegrown beauty brand’s best-selling facial device, comes a new beauty tool that aims to sculpt and tone the body. Built upon the same NASA-inspired LED light technology, the Trilight Body Sculpt Fit offers four types of treatments including a warm mode to release tension and relax muscles, lift mode (red LED) to help with sagging skin and cellulite, glow mode (green LED) for skin dullness, as well as a smooth mode (red and blue LED) to target acne on the back and chest. Thought we doubt the device can replace good ‘ol exercise and a healthy diet, its combination of LED light therapy, micro-current, and micro-vibration technologies look promising enough to boost skin elasticity and reduce puffiness. The device is best used with the brand’s Body Sculpt Fit Serum, a lightweight body serum that’s formulated with antioxidant-rich caffeine and hydrating niacinamide.

For beautifully cleansed skin in a minute: Luna Foreo 3

Instead of a multi-step cleansing routine just to ensure you’re getting all the gunk and makeup off your face, consider Swedish beauty gadget Foreo Luna 3 for a fuss-free cleansing ritual in just a minute. Made of soft silicon, the device uses gentle high-tech T-sonic pulsations at 16 different intensities, along with gentler and longer touch points compared to its predecessor, to reach deeper into the pores. In about a minute, about 99.5 per cent of dirt and makeup is removed. To use, simply connect the device to the FOREO app via Bluetooth, dampen your face, apply your favourite cleanser to the device, and hit the start button twice to begin. Glide the device over your face in a circular motion until the built-in time automatically shuts it off. Rinse, pat-dry, and continue with the rest of your beauty regime. Cleansing function aside, the device also comes with different massage programmes accessible via the app.

For bright and perky eyes: Nurse Jamie Eyeonix Eye Massaging Beauty Tool 

A cult favourite among Hollywood celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski and Jessica Alba, this beauty tool promises to reduce puffiness, banish crow’s feet, and even soothe fine lines. Targeting the sensitive eye area, the Eyeonix utilises high frequency vibration to massage under and around the eyes, so as to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production. Perfect for those battling late nights and dark eye circles, the device is best used with the brand’s EGF Eye Complex serum, which offers a dose of “epidermal growth factor” to boost cell renewal and combat signs of ageing. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, the serum maximises moisture retention to further hydrate the eye area, which is said to have skin that is three to five times thinner than the rest of one’s complexion.

For a well-contoured face: Refa Caxa Ray

Possibly one of the fanciest face rollers we’ve encountered, the Refa Caxa Ray is a multi-purpose tool designed with micro rollers and “seagull” lines to scoop, knead, and sculpt your face for a more desirable contour. Aside from the face, the tool can also be used on the neck and decolletage. Similar to the Traditional Chinese Medicine technique of gua sha, the Caxa Ray can improve lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness. The “seagull” and “crescent” lines work to replicate the friction technique commonly used by aestheticians to target the fascia, while the solar panel embedded in the handle converts available light into a mild and soothing microcurrent. Best of all, its waterproof platinum coating ensures that it’s safe to use in the shower or bathtub. Overall, the tool promotes more refined contours and more supple skin.

For bespoke rogue shades: YSL Rouge Sur Mesure by Perso

Guilty of buying too many lipsticks and only using a few? This new technology allows users to create a new shade of rogue anytime they need one, all in a matter of minutes. Compatible with an app, Perso offers three ways of making a desired shade—the shade wheel amps up an everyday shade for a glam evening look, the shade match finds a matching shade according to one’s outfit or accessory via photo capture, and the shade stylist recommends lip shades that coordinate with your look. Thousands of bespoke shades can be created out of YSL’s iconic red, nude, orange, and fuchsia hues, resulting in your very own version of the YSL Velvet Cream Matte Finish lipstick. Plus, the device’s lid functions as luxury compact case for users to bring their personalised rogue out with them. Before deciding on a shade, users can easily explore and try out endless looks thanks to the app’s AI capability.
