Beauty Tools to try in 2015

I'm a  beauty gadget girl. So I loved putting together this post and trying out these tools that I think will peak your interest. It's always fun to try something new in the new year-why not treat yourself to an awesome new beauty tool

1. The Foreo Luna is actually the only thing I haven't tried on this list. I've always used the Clarisonic to clean my face. The Luna has a silicone facial brush. The great benefit to this over the Clarisonic is that it is more hygienic because it is nonporus and can resist bacteria. It's also more cost effective because you won't ever have to buy replacement brushes like you do with the Clarisonic. It uses T sonic technology to deliver 8,000 pulsations per minute to gently remove oil, dead skin cells and makeup. Does it work? I don't know but I'm more than willing to try! For $199-it's definitely an investment but if it's as good as the Clarisonic, it will be worth the money. 

2. You may have seen me on Good Morning Rochester using the Conair InfinityPro Curl Secret on newscaster Jennifer Johnson's hair. If not-follow the link on the sidebar under FLUFF ON TV. I love this curling machine. It draws the hair into the chamber and produces the.perfect.curl.every.time. I'm not kidding-this is amazing once you get the hang of it. I tangled a few tresses while hopping on the learning curve. Once you get the hang of it though, you'll quickly move up to pro status. 

3. The Personal Microdermabrasion was something I saw at ULTA months ago and thought, hmmm...does this really work? I found an AMAZING deal on this badboy. Originally $189, I purchased it for $89 on folica.com. I knew I wouldn't get this deal ever again, so even though I wasn't 100% sold, I had to give it a try. I was slightly nervous that I was going to suck my face off so I actually watched the DVD before beginning. Didn't quite make it to the end, but got the jist none the less. Although pretty straightforward, I started cautiously and tested a spot on my neck and behind my ear, like suggested. I was pleasantly surprised I had no redness or irritation so took it to the face. Treatments should be spread apart by about a week so I've just completed my second. I will keep you posted if my skin looks ravishing after the recommended 4-6 treatments. 

4. Hey-you know me...always looking for something to make my mani last as long as possible. This Ciate at home gel manicure set caught my eye because you can use ANY nail polish with it. Get out the OPI Lincoln Park After Dark! I already had the LED light from my previous purchase so instead of buying the entire kit-I just bought the Geltox top coat which ran me about $30. ****Nails must be COMPLETELY dry before applying top coat for this to work****I applied to thick the first time and my nails lasted about 4 days. Not too impressive. However, that was user error-so I'm hoping to keep getting better with my application skills!

5. Ok-so this Peter Thomas Roth Firmx Exfoliating Gel isn't technically a "tool" per se but I tried it and could not believe my eyes! My colleague, Dr. Jill, told me about it. She said when you apply it, you can literally see the dead cells sloughing off before your eyes. She brought some in for me to try and even as I was watching those cells ball up I still thought it was the product. So did she when she first tried it. But it's not. It's your skin. I know-this is incredible, right? I was skeptical of the ingredients and looked all of them up on the skin deep website and it seems to be pretty safe! I only tried on my hand but let me tell ya, it was smooth as a baby's bottom (with age spots) afterwards. I don't plan on mixing this with the PMD because I think it would be way too overkill, but I may try and use it on my hands, feet, etc. throughout the harsh winter weather. $48. 

I would love to hear any suggestions on beauty tools and gadgets you recommend trying!
