A Theraface Pro facial massager
Therabody

Love getting facials but want to save money? Use the TheraFace Pro instead to give you tightened skin as well as an amazing massage. Plus, you can use the red and blue light settings to reduce wrinkles and acne. This facial tool has it all. I've personally tried the TheraFace Pro myself. While it will take some time to see long-term results, it's definitely going to reduce my time at the spa.

Best makeup tools

Many beauty lovers collect a huge brush collection, but not all brushes are easy to clean and dry. We all know that having a good brush helps with makeup application, but that all goes down the drain if your brush is dirty -- dirty brushes harbor bacteria. A makeup cleaner like this one eliminates the problem by cleaning your brush in about 10 minutes.

Best hair care tools

Revlon

Here's a Revlon product that can't be ignored. It can be used on any hair type, but for curly hair, this hair dryer can take tight coils and get them stretched in no time. This tool has three different heating settings, but if you have curly type 3 (curly) or type 4 (coily) hair, it's recommended to use heat protectant and the lowest setting to avoid heat damage.

Not everyone enjoys going to the spa and having their hair waxed or lasered away. It helps to have something you can use to remove hair from delicate areas at your own speed. This shaver is able to give you smoother skin, but it's even better for touch-ups.
