I blame (and also thank) TikTok for my obsession with skincare. From the proper way to Gua Sha for lymphatic drainage to learning how to contour my face with self-tanner, the hacks are endless. TikTok has also introduced me to a ton of different beauty tools, which have become a great addition to my skincare routine. After testing various tools, I've found that Vanity Planet gadgets perform the best (especially given their price point). Also, their devices come with a one-year warranty in case anything malfunctions and you can send anything back within 30 days if you aren’t satisfied.

If you are in the market for some top-shelf skincare tools, these three may be right for you.

Facial steaming is a tried-and-true technique that’s resurfaced thanks to all the new gadgets that make it easier to do than sticking your face over a hot pot of water to create steam. I’ve tried many facial steamers, and this one is by far my favorite.

How to Use

Fill up the back canister with some water and tap the power button on to feel the machine work its magic. I like to wash my face mid-steam, after my pores have gotten the chance to soften and open up, which makes removing the dirt and impurities that have set up camp in all the nooks and crannies of my skin a breeze. I use this baby two to three times a week depending on how much makeup I’ve been wearing. After cleansing, I take my favorite serums and pat them into my skin, so they penetrate deeply. Steaming beforehand makes me feel like I’m getting maximum benefits from the skincare products I pay so much for.

Overall Impression

This steamer keeps my face looking and feeling fresh and I would recommend it for all skin types. I have combination skin, and when my face is as dry as it is in the winter, it helps lock in moisture and give me a natural glow. This tool will quickly become a favorite step in your skincare routine because the steam feels incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating after a long day.

If you don’t already start your day off with ice rolling your face, here’s your sign to start. Contrary to what you might think, the feeling of cold metal against your skin is a wonderful way to wake up.

How to Use

After applying my morning skincare products, I like to roll my face to help them absorb better. The cooling sensation also shocks my skin back to life after a bad night’s sleep. On that note, store the roller in the freezer for extra cooling, which will help with depuffing your face and sculpting your jawline. Additionally, you can use the roller to soothe skin irritation or sore muscles after a tough workout.

Overall Impression

While I absolutely love this roller, if you’re not in the market to drop extra money on another tool, an ice cube will work similarly. However, if you do want to splurge a little (and don’t want to wet your face with ice), this handy roller will do all the work with no clean up. I do wish there was a smaller end to roll under my eyes more easily, but other than that it’s one of my favorite tools.

There are tons of ways to exfoliate these days—from scrubs to masks to professional dermaplaning treatments. This spatula has multiple functions, including my favorite method of exfoliation these days: ultrasonic vibration.

How to Use

I love steaming my face before using the exfoliation setting on this because your skin needs to be damp to get the best results. After steaming for about two minutes, I gently scrape the tool over my face in an upwards motion. It removes dead skin, clears blackheads and leaves my face feeling softer than ever. The moisturizing setting is great to use with your serums to get them deeper into your skin. And the lifting mode exercises your facial muscles using EMS microcurrents to tighten and firm your face. While I use that setting the least, I definitely see a difference in my face (however temporary) when I use it consistently.

Overall Impression

If I could bring one skincare tool with me to a desert island, it would be this spatula. The exfoliating feature alone is enough to sell me on it, but the other features make it even more valuable. Using this in tandem with the Aira Steamer has drastically improved my skin.
