It’s been several years since I first started focusing on skincare. Throughout this time I’ve discovered several brands that I love including Wander Beauty, Peach & Lily and now Madeca Derma which is my latest discovery. Today I’m sharing about skincare tools that have been game changers when used alongside my favorite skincare products.
No matter where you are in your skincare journey, at some point it’s a good idea to add a few skincare tools that can be used along with your dedicate routine. So many of us are cutting back on routine pedicures, facials etc during the current pandemic, but that doesn’t mean that you need to cut back on your skincare routines at home.
In this post I’m sharing about three of the skincare tools that I’ve been using this year from my go-to resource, Vanity Planet. Everything I’ve tried from the brand has been well-made and the price points are ideal for those of us on a budget. (Plus they have a program where you can earn points towards future purchases which is always a plus!)
Ultrasonic Face Lifting & Exfoliating Wand
This tool comes with my highest recommendation. I love it, my mom loves it and since we haven’t felt safe enough to go to get a facial this year our faces really needed it.
The tool (or wand) has three modes: Exfoliate, Moisturize and Lift. I mostly use modes 1 and 3 for my personal skincare routine. The exfoliate works wonders when you can’t make it to see the esthetician to get much needed extractions. I tend to have issues on the side of my face the I sleep on the most, and this tool gentle vibrates any imperfections out of my pores.
The moisturize mode (which as I mentioned I haven’t tried out yet) is designed to be used with most skincare products. The same ultrasonic oscillation that helped clear out impurities from your skin in the previous (exfoliate) mode now works to help skin absorb your moisturizers and serums.
The final mode, Lift is ideal for those of us who are just starting to notice a line here or there (for me it’s around the eyes) and also a way to proactively treat your neck and other areas of the face to help prevent early signs of aging. It also works to stimulate your facial muscles and tighten skin as well!
Summary of the Benefits of the Essia
Exfoliates your skin by dislodging blackheads and impurities from pores and help fight off breakouts and inflammation.
Moisturizes your skin my using negative ions to boost skin’s ability to attract and absorb serums and moisturizers.
Lifts your facial features using a EMS micro current to gently stimulate facial muscles, tighten skin, lift facial contours and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Note: Be sure to read through the manual on this one for tips on the best way to use it, including which side of the wand you should use for each setting!
Lift and Tone Sculpting Bar
I picked up the Tona for my mom to use as part of her daily routine. I love sharing all my skincare product discoveries with her and spending our weekends and evenings being proactive about our skincare routines. So I was very excited when Vanity Planet released the Tona, a lift and tone sculpting bar, that like the Essia works with the power of sonic massage to sculpt, lift and tone your face (including defining the cheekbone and jawline). Also the bar design helps you massage specific areas that might to be harder to navigate with the Essia like under and around the eyes to calm puffiness. If you’re looking for a non-surgical face lift, the Tona is a skincare tool you want to try out!

Contour & Define Massaging Roller
I have seen massaging rollers all of the blogs, in magazines, and in social media, but it wasn’t until recently when I decided I wanted to work on sculpting my cheekbones (specifically) and read how a massage roller can relax the jawline (which is one of the many places I tend to hold my stress) that I decided to give it a try.
I love the coolness of the rose quartz and how I can actually feel the rollers at work each time I use it. I keep my roller at my desk (at home) and when I’m working on my computer on the evenings and weekends I like to take a little break to use my massaging roller when I feel myself getting tense. I’ve also used it on the sides of my neck and shoulders to help relieve tight muscles!
