Our 10 Favorite Beauty Gadgets of 2018
2018 saw an explosion of incredible beauty gadgets, much to our delight.
Long gone are the days of simple facial cleansing brush. Now there's a beauty accessory for just about every aliment you might face (pun intended), be it acne, hair creases or unwanted facial hair.
Extra? Absolutely. But we wouldn't trade our cult-worthy beauty tools for anything. Below is the definitive ranking of our fave beauty gadgets this year.
Slip Silk Scrunchies: $39
The most genius and necessary beauty creation this year: the silk scrunchie. Not only do these beauties look good, but the silk doesn't pull on your hair and never leaves a crease. Whether you're heading to a yoga class or just pulling your hair back before bed, these silk babies have you covered.

Dermaflash 2.0: $189
Looking to banish pesky peach fuzz for baby smooth skin? Yeah, us too. Which is why we happily made the investment in the Derma Flash 2.0 that effortlessly shaves off unwanted hair while exfoliating the skin and creating a gorgeous canvas for your makeup.

Foreo Luna 2 Cleansing Brush: $139
Facial cleansing brushes are nothing new, but Foreo really upped the ante and educated us on the bacteria and grime that builds up in a standard facial cleansing brush with bristles. We love FOREO's Luna 2 cleansing brush that's anti-microbial, anti-aging and pairs well with your fave cleanser.
Amika Polished Perfect Straightening Brush: $120
If you're a curly girl who likes to wear your hair smooth and straight, the Amika polished perfect straightening brush is your new BFF. This thermal straightening brush instantly creates smooth hair in a single stroke with the power of a straightener and the ease of a hairbrush.
Skin Gym Jade Roller: $32
It's hard to imagine life pre-jade rolling. This ancient Chinese ritual quickly became a staple in our skincare routines and we haven't looked back since! Great for increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, de-puffing and soothing, there's no better way to end a long school week than with a sheet mask, Netflix and jade rolling.
Skin Gym Gua Sha: $32
For those wanting to elevate their jade rolling, Skin Gym's gua sha stole the skincare scene this year. A gua sha is specifically designed to enhance your natural beauty by stimulating circulation while helping to de-puff, lift and sculpt your face. We're obsessed.
We love anything that simplifies our routine and takes the thinking out of it. Enter Quip's revolutionary, compact and sleek toothbrush that is battery-powered so you don't need a bulky charger. They also send you a new bristle head, battery and toothpaste every three months via a subscription service. Brilliant.
Billie Razors: $9
Another brand really revolutionizing an age-old category? Billie. The razor brand was founded by women and delivers razors and blades straight to your door based on how often you actually need them.
Hollywood Silk Solution Pillow Case: $45
Sleeping on silk not only feels fancy AF, it also has amazing beauty benefits from reducing the tugging on delicate facial skin, extending the life of your blowout and reducing bedhead. And thanks to the Hollywood Silk Solution, you can get a pretty silk pillowcase for less than $50.
