With the rise of beauty video tutorials on YouTube, TikTok and the like, at-home skin care tools have grown in popularity. Now, there are more beauty gadgets and devices on the market than ever, which makes knowing what to buy so much harder. I mean, is it really necessary to drop $250 on a luxury jade gua sha stone massager? (The answer: Definitely not). 

To simplify your decision-making process and save you time, we've compiled a list of the best beauty tools you can use from the comfort of your home and with minimal fuss. These are some of our editors' favorite beauty gadgets. Whether someone on your holiday list wants glowing skin, an at-home blow-out or a silky shave, there's an innovative tool to help them achieve their beauty goals. And those of you who enjoy beauty products can pick up a few items for yourself.

Best skin care beauty tools


Love getting microcurrent or light therapy 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 skin care tool has it all. I've personally tried the TheraFace Pro and 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


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.

Best body care tools


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.
