2015’s Best New Beauty Devices

April Davis

The world is constantly evolving and the beauty world is no exception. From electric shavers to electronic face-masks, technology can do pretty much anything when it comes to our beauty regimens. The coupling of technology and beauty has literally changed the way we care for our skin and bodies, with innovations in tools aplenty.

Here, we uncover all the innovations the industry can expect to see this year, with 2015’s best new beauty devices.


Hot off the press are skincare diagnostic tools and tests ranging from DNA tests to picture analysis and diagnostic apps. Companies have also noted that we want more personalised products and corporations like Sephora are taking note.

Though not yet available in Australia, the company has launched Sephora’s Skin Care IQ, which assists shoppers in purchasing products by way of navigating through their skin concerns.

We also want to see salon-style skincare products, which have seen the development of cleansing and anti-ageing electronic face-masks that are transforming the marketplace.

“At-home cleansing devices are upping their game, with the likes of Clinique and Clarisonic bringing the concept to the masses; creating high awareness and general beauty buzz on the importance of effective skin cleansing,” says Medik8’s, Holly Tomlin. “New at-home technologies provide cleansing alongside low level sonic frequency waves to tackle fine lines and wrinkles simultaneously. So great skin is definitely in the consumer psyche at the moment.”


We’re also wanting to re-create salon-quality hair at home and this is mirrored in the development of beauty tools. For VS Sassoon, the development of new ceramic technologies has proved a major influence. “The latest innovations for VS Sassoon include our new Diamond Radiance Technology – styling tools made with 20 per cent harder and 50 per cent smoother advanced diamond-like ceramic for an ultra-smooth, much desired frizz-free result”. New hair products are also being developed to complement these, all of which work to reduce frizz and create a salon finish at home.

We’re all a little time poor so we want products and technologies that are going to make looking great a little easier each morning – thankfully, companies like VS Sassoon are listening and reacting to these wants.

  • Elemis – Oval Rouge Brush
  • Dr. Hauschka – Oval Rouge Brush
  • Tweezerman – 2-way Comfort Callus Shaver
