Beauty Gadgets are they worth investing in? Two reviewed
How many beauty gadgets do you own? Perhaps the more important question should be how many do you use? There are so many beauty ‘tools’ as they are now referred to that sometimes my mind boggles! If you used at least three of the ones I have seen lately then you would need more hours in your day. I want a beauty gadget that saves me time and does the job better than I can. Plus I want all this from the comfort of my own home.

1Pura Skinsense Sonic Cleansing Brush:
To be very honest when I saw this on instagram I had a few doubts. Questions ran through my head ie. Why do I need another cleansing tool? will it work? You see, I am a hot flannel girl at heart, I massage a cleansing balm, I prefer Eve Lom or Emma Hardie, into my grubby face and then simply rub over a hot flannel or muslin cloth, pat dry and follow with a moisturiser … ‘job done’ as Marc says !
‘Job done’ really? It depends…
If I have spent the day at home in Dorset, where the air is clean and fresh, this is fine. However, if I have put on makeup and spent the day in London, then I need something more, something that cleans a little deeper to remove the muck of city life and pollutants from my skin.
What is it?
The BeGlow Pura is a small sonic cleansing brush.
So after a day in the dirty, polluted city I have taken to using myThis beauty gadget works hard for me. When I travel it comes too, it has its own handy travel pouch, plus a USB charger and a normal charger.
Apply your cleanser as usual and then just apply the pura to your face using gentle circular motions, there are different pulses to choose from.
It cleans gently, deeply and thoroughly, leaving my face not only clean but feeling fab, toned and glowing , ready for the day ahead.

- Sonic cleansing brush

…”The rechargeable cleansing device is fully waterproof and ultra-hygienic; its replaceable silicone brush head resists bacteria build-up and removes makeup and impurities more effectively than a manual cleanse. The pulsations helps to dislodge dirt and residue to leave skin feeling pure and revitalised”.
I absolutely agree with all of the above.
My honest opinion of the Beglow Pura beauty gadget?
I will admit it’s not cheap, but I do consider this one is worth investing in. (Christmas is coming, perhaps start hinting?)
I will definitely be buying a replacement brush head, as this one is getting a lot of use right now. A clever little gadget that just like my sonic toothbrush, I now rely on to get the job done better than I can. At my age I’ll take all the help I can get, thank you Be glow!
PS This was gifted but with no obligation or pressure to post about it. I have had it some time and have been putting it through its paces.
2 Sanitas Laser Hair Removal by Lidl.
This one I bought, actually Marc bought this for me, as I kept going on about how much cheaper it was than the Philips Lumea version that looks very similar. This one cost £69.99 ( instead of hundreds)
It is supposed to slow down the rate of hair growth by emitting gentle pulses of light, that puts the hair into the ‘resting phase’ which shed in the 1-2 weeks after zapping them and supposedly further growth is inhibited?
Remember when you were younger and food shops had those electric fly zappers hanging from the ceiling, every time a fly flew into it it made a pffffft sound, well this little beauty gadget reminds me of that! It makes the same sound…
Does it Work?
Yes, it has definitely reduced the hair regrowth on my legs, but I find it fiddly to use and difficult to see where you have missed areas. You have to use it after shaving and I’m not a fan of shaving my legs, I prefer to get them waxed.
There are 3 levels of heat. I have used them all, to me it didn’t feel hot and it did not burn me. There are warnings not to use this beauty gadget if you are fair skinned or have red hair. I’m guessing the fairer skinned you are the more you may be able to feel the heat?
Would I recommend it?
Yes and no, it is a beauty gadget I can easily live without. I prefer a good old leg wax. At least with a waxing session you get to lay down for 20 mins and at the end you get a quick leg massage with some nice cream and somebody else does it all for you. I am testing it out on my top lip with good results so I may report back if it works well on my ‘tache’
Yes it works, but it takes time. It’s up to you, if you like DIY gadgets to take home then buy it, if you prefer the salon version then leave it at the supermarket>
