Skincare Products: Best Face Forward

Want to take your skincare routine up a notch? These tools and devices are designed to give your complexion a boost. We tested them all.



SONIC YOUTH 
Foreo IRIS Illuminating Eye Massager
$139, foreo.com

What It Claims: Approved by ophthalmologists, this massager helps reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles, and bags through its T-Sonic technology.
Our Take: Thanks to the massager’s gentle tapping sensation, applying eye cream has never felt more enjoyable. It also made us look and feel instantly more awake.

ROLL WITH IT
GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool
$199, beautybio.com

What It Claims: This micro-needling tool rejuvenates an aging complexion. The needles penetrate the skin, triggering it to regenerate and make new cells—leading to a firmer, brighter appearance with continued use.  
Our Take: While we got a little weary of getting pricked by its sharp micro-tips, the device was practically pain-free. Even after one use, our face felt softer and had a glow, making it a mainstay on our vanity.

LET THERE BE LIGHT
Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask
$34.99, neutrogena.com

What It Claims: This acne-fighting LED mask brings light-therapy treatment from the dermatologist’s office straight into your living room. The secret to its skin-clearing success? It’s equipped with blue lights to kill bacteria and red lights to decrease inflammation.
Our Take: While you may look like a comic book villain while wearing it, the 10-minute treatment is a non-irritating, non-drying way to combat current—and future—breakouts.

SET THE TONE
NuFACE Trinity Toning Device 
$325, mynuface.com

What It Claims: Its micro-current
technology firms skin tone and decreases the appearance of wrinkles.

Our Take: The biggest difference we saw after using this repeatedly for five minutes a day was the lifting effect along our jawline and cheekbone. Our features looked tighter and more luminous—plus our makeup went on smoother, too.

GREEN WITH ENVY
Shiffa Jade Facial Massage Roller 
$63, nordstrom.com

What It Claims: Jade rolling is an ancient Chinese beauty ritual that is just as beneficial today as it was centuries ago thanks to its healing and soothing benefits. The green stone stimulates blood flow, contours and tightens the skin, and helps reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines and pores. 
Our Take: The dual-ended tool makes it easy to roll your entire face, even the delicate under-eye area, in a matter of minutes. It worked our moisturizer into the skin better than our fingers, and the jade’s cooling sensation felt seriously therapeutic. Try storing it in the fridge for extra de-puffing benefits. After using it daily for a week, our skin looked brighter and felt smoother.

PUCKER UP 
JuvaLips Original Lip Plumper 
$149.95, myjuvalips.com

What It Claims: It’s a temporary, injection-free solution for thin lips. Simply apply the nourishing balm, place your lips into the mouthpiece and turn it on for a minute. 
Our Take: There’s a slight pulling sensation during the treatment. Afterward, we were pleasantly surprised that our lip volume had increased. It made a noticeable difference—more so than any topical product, so it’s ideal to do for special events.

GOOD VIBRATIONS 
QYKSonic ZOE, $149, qyksonic.com

What It Claims: This sonic brush massages skin to remove makeup and cleanse. It can also be used to apply skincare serums and creams. 
Our Take: Its pointed tip lets you target areas around the nose and mouth. Plus, its antibacterial silicon bristles are gentle enough for sensitive skin.
