Gift Guide: Beauty Tools and Gadgets

Every beauty addict worth her weight has an arsenal of tools and gadgets. These are my five favourites this festive season.

The Dyson Supersonic Hair dryer in White/Silver or Fuchsia/Iron (R6499) would be the ULTIMATE spoil for someone with unmanageable hair. Read my post on why this is the best thing to happen to the consumer hair industry for years. You can get it online here.

I use my Foreo Luna Mini (R1999 from Foschini) every single day. It makes such a huge difference to my skin because it cleans deeper than just using my hands, and it’s far gentler on the skin than brush cleansers. They are fully waterproof, the heads don’t need changing and you only need to charge them once or twice a year.

When ghd launches a product to follow a trend, you know that trend is well and truly back. Yep, 80s crimped hair is back. As an 80s kids, I’d love to get a ghd Nocturne Contour Professional Crimper (R1999).

Every woman should have a Tangle Teezer Black and Gold Compact Styler (R229) in their handbag. It’s compact, and the bristle layout means that you won’t tug or pull knots, but detangle them in a flash. There are loads of colour options, but what could be more festive than gold and black?


If you’re going to buy anyone makeup brushes, make sure you get them Real Techniques brushes. They are the best on the market in my opinion, and they are MUCH cheaper than bigger name brand ones. The Real Techniques Enhanced Eye Set (R360 from Clicks) is a set of 5 brushes to answer all eye enhancing needs.
