My beauty essentials VS beauty buying regrets
The beauty tools, gadgets, skincare and makeup I use everyday and the ones I totally regret buying.
Best Beauty Tools 2023
My top beauty tools 2023 and why. I’ve try to condense my beauty gadgets as much as possible to save time and to make packing easier when I travel with them.
Best Beauty Gadgets 2023 #1 Foreo UFO
I met Foreo a few years ago at an influencer event at Nordstroms in Vegas. Which is how I ended up collaborating with them and having them as guests on the blog. Which meant I could get all of our questions answered and the best skincare advice right from the top.
As far as the best beauty gadgets 2023, I’ve been hooked on my Foreo UFO since the 1st use. I’ve used this beauty tool for my face religiously once a week since getting it several years ago. I use it either with the H20 overdose mask or Call it a Night mask which work out to around $3.30 each.
Another benefit of Foreo masks is that they don’t leave a greasy residue. So you can just massage in the serum afterwards and continue with your normal skincare and makeup routine as it doesn’t pill under makeup.
As much as I love spa facials, it get’s expensive and takes 2+ hours (driving & treatment time). So I tend to only do them a couple of times a year and when I do it’s at a med spa and something I wouldn’t be able to do at home myself.
To use the Foreo UFO, you just choose the mask you’re using from the app on your phone and it guides you through the treatment.
There are so many things about the UFO I love. One is that it only take 90 seconds so it’s super quick and two that they don’t need washing off so they’re mess free.
I tend to repeat the treatment to max out the benefits as that still only takes 3 minutes. It’s super easy to clean, just wash it under warm water when you’re done and small enough to put away in your medicine cabinet.
Foreo UFO has replaced all of my other at home face masks as it takes home face masks to another level. This beauty tool offers heat, cryo, light and vibrational therapy that’s specific for each mask so that you can the most out of them. Full interview with Foreo.
Best beauty tools 2023 #2 Solawave
I was torn between this and FOREO UFO taking the number 1 spot as I use both regularly and they both do different things. I use the Foreo UFO weekly for at home facials and I use the Solawave wand everyday with my serum. It was easy to work into my routine as I either do it in the morning while checking emails or at night in front of the TV.
Since I gave up on my LED mask and facial massager but like the concept of them I got the Solawave advance skincare wand (gifted) at the start of last year. It has red light therapy, microcurrent, therapeutic warmth and facial massage.
I’ve done a full review of it to let you decide for yourself whether it’s worth it or not for you but it did make my best beauty gadgets 2023 hit list and I always recommend it to people. It’s also easy to travel with as it’s so compact.
This year I’ve definitely noticed a reduction in the deep lines around my eyes but I have done microneedling with RF, a fibroblast treatment and got the SBLA eye wand for hooded eyes.
Best Beauty Tools 2023 #3 Dermaflash dermaplaning exfoliation device
Makeup artists always comment on how smooth my skin is and I put it all down to this miracle beauty tool. It’s the at home version of sonic dermaplaning, aestheticians will hate me for saying that. But honestly I get the same results doing it myself with this once every few months than I do from them and it saves me time and money.
Is dermaplaning basically shaving your face? Yes! But with the added benefit of exfoliating and getting rid of all of your dead skin along with the peach fuzz.
Go light handed with the Dermaflash. It’s an at home beauty gadget but it’s still a super sharp blade. I’ve definitely nicked myself a couple of times as you have to use a new blade each time. So it’s always super sharp but it’s so quick and easy.
The Dermaflash comes with the blades, a pre wash and post treatment cream so you don’t have to worry about buying anything else to use with it. Then you just order replacement blades as and when you need the.
Best Beauty Tools 2023 #4 Beauty Eraser
Once you use this you’ll never use a flannel/face cloth again. It’s so much softer, more absorbent and effective at removing makeup. Which is why it’s my must have beauty tool that gets used everyday.
Shop Beauty Eraser
This is the most affordable beauty essential on this list at $20. It comes in black and pink. As much as I love the pink, I also love black winged eyeliner so the black version stains less for me.
The beauty tools I don’t use that are gathering dust
Now I’ve shared my best beauty gadgets 2023, I wanted to share the misses with you. When buying new beauty tools and gadgets for my face I try to think of how I’ll fit them into my everyday routine. As no one as time to keep adding more things to their skincare routine.
LED face mask
I wanted to love my LED face mask as I thought I’d wear it watching TV every night. However, I should’ve got one with a better battery life. As mine needs constant recharging which I always forget to do.
It’s also a kind of thick plastic material my cats want to chew so I have to always put it away. It’s definitely one of the most affordable versions out there and a great way of seeing if you’d use it and like it.
If I tried this beauty tool again, I’d go for the Dr. Dennis Gross version which a few of my friends have and rave about. As the one I have is currently under our coffee table gathering dusk.

Shop LED face masks
The LED face mask is one of the most expensive at home beauty face tools so definitely do your research before buying. I have a feeling if I went for a more expensive one it’d be near the top and not at the bottom of my best beauty tools 2023 list.
Jade and rose quartz facial rollers
I’d heard so many good things about Jade and Rose quartz facial rollers. Since they’re so affordable and shelfie pretty that I thought I’d give them a go. I put it on the table next to where I sit in the living room so I could use it watching TV. It doesn’t need charging just wiping down afterwards but do I use it? Rarely.
In the Summer I’m slightly better about using it as it’s cooling but in the Winter I skip it. I also like to see instant results from beauty tools and really didn’t find any benefits to this. Except for massaging my jaw if I’ve been grinding or clenching my teeth during the day.
Shop facial rollers
For $20-30 it’s worth giving facial rollers a go, especially if you’re into crystals. Lots of people love them, they’re just not for me.
Vibrating facial massager
This sounded good and I love a massage, so thought this could be another beauty face tool I could use at night watching TV. I don’t know how many beauty tools I thought I needed or could fit into an evening by the tele but it was definitely too many. But being a cruelty-free beauty blogger I’ll pretty much try anything.
This does feel good and is supposed to be anti-aging by stimulating the muscles. However, it’s too noisy to use watching TV and looks a little dodgy sitting on your coffee table. The version I have works with contact with the skin but needs pressing pretty hard and sometimes won’t turn on.
It is an efficient Wrinkle Reducer, Spot Corrector, Collagen Booster & Face tightening tool that is ideal for all skin typesVijuve
