People don’t always think of the beauty industry as a leader in technological innovation, but it certainly is. New technologies are constantly being created, especially in regards to skin care and makeup application, and old techniques are always being perfected. (No wonder there are as many products as there are out on the market these days for us to try.) These five tools may look freaky, but they’re more practical than they seem.

Unusual Beauty Tools

  1. NuFace Facial Toning Device: This cute portable machine uses one of the aformentioned beauty technologies – microcurrent technology – to provide a mini, noninvasive facelift. The microcurrent stimulates your skin (more soothing than it sounds!) to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while toning and contouring.
  2. Babyliss Nano Titanium MiraCurl Machine: It looks a little funky, but this device is simply a different type of hot tool that hit the market a few years back. It’s an automatic curling iron, which means it literally creates the curls for you; no kinking like a traditional curler or wrapping like a wand. The motor inside it, which is behind each curl, allows you to customize the type of curl you receive, from perfect coils to lusciously loose waves. This is a huge bonus for those of you who have trouble curling or getting a curl to stick!
  3. Aquasentials Easy Lotion Applicator: Never miss hard to reach places when moisturizing again – this lotion applicator has you covered. Sure, it seems a little basic… but isn’t it kind of practical? Simply put your lotion on the PVA sponge and apply to skin (such as your back and shoulders) for a more even distribution of your body lotion – much less strange than the tool looks in the photo.
  4. Beauty Bar 24k Golden Pulse Facial Massager: One of Japan’s greatest anti-aging secrets is facial massage, the same concept behind the face yoga I talked about last year. Whether with a massage stone, fingertips or a facial massager like this, massage is an old trick to prevent wrinkles and maintain youthful skin. Similar to the facial toning device, it’s a tool that stimulates skin, but this time with micro vibration (6,000 times per minute!) used to firm and contour the face.
  5. Clio Eyeguard Waterproof Liquid Liner: Have you guys tried one of these eyeliners before? The super precise, soft tip offers flawless liquid liner without dragging, while the handle allows for a comfortable grip so you can achieve perfect liner application every time. If you struggle to create even strokes with your liquid liner, this one is definitely worth a try!
