Christmas Gift Guide: Electrical Beauty Gadgets

A little change of plans. Instead of my stocking fillers gift guide which I planned for today, we're talking some fab hair tools and beauty gadgets! I have you covered head to toe - literally!

I am starting with a gift for everyone - a fancy, high end toothbrush! I am a huge fan of Foreo products, so I was super excited to try the Foreo Issa*(£149.00). I will be reviewing it in detail in a separate blog post, but I wanted to mention it in the gift guide, as it is such a great device! It features soft and ultra-gentle silicone bristles to create the perfect friction. Ideal for those who tend to brush too hard and make their gums bleed, like me. Issa is fab for sensitive teeth as well. I love the design, as it's very ergonomic and lightweight and also travel friendly. It comes with a USB to charge it and a little pouch for storage. With it's pulsating action, the toothbrush stimulates additional blood flow to achieve healthier gums and prevent gum disease. It is very easy to clean  and the brush head only needs to be replaced once a year. Lasts up to 365 uses and one charge lasts 6 months! Amazing gift. Now I need one for my hubby and two of the mini ones for the kids, as they are very jealous of my Issa already!

I  can't talk about Foreo, without mentioning their fantastic face brushes. I talked about all of the Foreo Luna sizes on the blog in the past, so you can read more here and here, if you're interested.

From the original Foreo Luna(£125.00) to the Luna Mini(£85.00) and the Luna Play(£29.00), there is something for everyone and for every budget! And there is a mens one too, which I featured in my mens gift guide.

 Switching from oral hygiene to hair, we have the Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler*(£16.99). Everyone's loving tight chopstick curls right now, so I just had to try it! And guess what? I looooove it! It creates the tightest curls in seconds and they last so well! You can also use it on bigger sections of hair for a slightly looser curl, which I prefer. My curls lasted for a week!!! This never ever happens! Obviously they became looser and looser each day, but I was so so pleased that I still had some sort of wave in my hair after so long. I am very impressed! You can pick it up from Superdrug.

 And if you're not into chopstick curls, you might like the Supershine range by Nicky Clarke. I have two of the tools (there's also a hairdryer) and they look so sleek and elegant. The black and copper combination is very on trend as well. Beautiful!

  I am very intrigued by the Supershine Steam Hair Straightener*(£39.99). Steam straighteners are very popular right now and promise to rehydrate and nourish hair for a salon-smooth, super-shiny finish, while you're creating your hair style. The straightener uses ionic steam conditioning to work it's magic and the ceramic coated plates provide even heat distribution and eliminate frizz. The plates are a good size, which means that you can do big sections of hair each time.

The Supershine Tong*(£20.00) is such great value for money! Just like the straightener, the tong features ionic technology to enhance shine and get rid of frizz, but the style you achieve is obviously completely different. The Supershine tong has a 25mm barrel, ideal for creating curls and waves and it is a pleasure to use on any hair type.

I didn't realise Veet did beauty gadgets, but I am looking forward to giving this Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler*(£24.00) a go. It seems to be sold out almost everywhere, but Tesco have it on their website at full price. You might find it in some Boots and Supedrug stores though. It is a pretty popular item! What does it do? It is tailored to gently trim and precisely shape the hair on your delicate body parts, such as face, bikini and underarms. Sounds great! The cutting blades don't touch the skin, so no risk of cuts - something a clumsy person like me does on a regular basis.  Might review it separately, as I am so excited to use it!

Last but not least, something to give you amazing feet! The limited edition Scholl Velvet Smooth Luxury Purple Pedi Gift Set*(£70.00) is perfect for those who like to spend their time on pedicures and foot treatments, but now you can achieve salon results at home! The gift set contains an Electronic Foot File, an Extra Coarse Roller Head and two extra replacements, a 7.5ml Nail Care Oil and a Rouge By Nailberry Nail Lacquer (11ml). The finely ground diamond crystals buff away hard skin instantly leaving your feet feeling super smooth and once you're happy with the results, you can start your pedicure with the gorgeous nail polish and the oil. And how nice is this sparkly purple gift box? Lovely!

Are there any beauty gadgets you're expecting to find under the Christmas tree this year?
