Continuing on with my Christmas Gift Guide roundup, I’d like to introduce you to my second category, Beauty Tools and Skincare Gift Sets.

Flawless base starts with good skincare right!  These are some skincare essentials that have been major game changers for me.

FOREO Picture Perfect LUNA 3 + Serum Serum Serum 

FOREO Picture Perfect LUNA 3 + Serum Serum Serum Gift Set

I’ve have recently incorporated FOREO into my skincare routine in the last few months and I must say I can’t get enough! One of the main reasons why I’m not so compliant with makeup tools is the time needed to use it.  With FOREO, you only need 60 seconds to achieve a deeply cleansed, better skin texture with a natural glow. Yup 60 seconds!

FOREO device uses T-Sonic technology with 8000 pulsations per minute and reach into your pores to wash away dirt, oil, sweat, make-up residue, dead skin cells!  Also what makes FOREO stands out from the rest of brushing tools is the ultra soft and delicate silicone touch points as well as their bacteria-resistant property.  I find the device super easy to use and easy to manoeuvre.  The device doesn’t take much space in my bathroom and a battery charge lasts 650 uses!

The latest innovative FOREO Luna 3 can be connected to Foreo For You app so you can personalise your routine in terms of intensities and treatments.  Additionally, you can relax and tone the facial muscles with four firming massage treatments for reduced puffiness and improved contours. 

Along with LUNA 3, you’ll get a 50ml of Serum Serum Serum in this gorgeous Picture Perfect Set.  This Serum is packed with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and protect your skin.

A perfect gift for any skincare fanatics who skin goals is that picture perfect AND it’s pink!

NuFACE FIX Line Smoothing Device Shimmer All Night – Limited Edition

NuFACE FIX Shimmer All Night – Limited Edition

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know how much I love NuFACE devices!

I love NuFACE Trinity but I’m obsessed NuFACE FIX Line Smoothing Device!  This pen-sized device is used with the NuFACE FIX Line Smoothing Serum, the first ionic Microcurrent Skincare formula that’s supercharged with active beauty ingredients that help smooth, tighten and brighten skin.  The device is super chic and compact that makes it great to travel with.

The NuFACE FIX Line Smoothing Device works by providing gentle bursts of NuFACE microcurrent energy to target fine lines and wrinkles and help firm, smooth, and tighten the look of skin within 3 minutes.  The microcurrent sends soft, gentle waves through your facial tissue, deep into your facial muscles. This energy then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This nifty device can be used to treat eyes, lips and forehead.

Seriously a game changer for anyone looking to reduce or prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  I love it for the crow’s feet around my eyes. AND you can use it over makeup too!

This limited-edition NuFACE FIX Shimmer All Night will be a magical gift.

Philips Lumea Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device

Philips Lumea Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device

Next I have another game changer device to recommend!  It’s Philips Lumea Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device, an easy, pain-free at-home IPL!

Philips Lumea uses an innovative light based technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to break the cycle of hair regrowth.  Gentle pulses of light are applied at the root and, after several treatments, hair is prevented from growing back.  The device is specifically designed for the body’s curves, comes with 3 intelligent attachments to deliver a tailored treatment program for each specific body part.  So clever and super easy to use!

You can check out my full review here.  I have been using the device since March 2018 and am enjoying the hair-free status, no shaving/waxing hassles with just a monthly maintenance treatment.
