4 beauty tools that are actually worth your money

4 beauty tools that are actually worth your money



Beauty tools are often referred to as beauty gimmicks. Unfortunately, social media can make finding the right beauty tool a minefield, especially with trends popping up weekly on TikTok, resulting in products becoming a trend that we blind-purchase before they disappear into the abyss of our beauty cupboards.

Yet some beauty tools should be in your arsenal for the long run…

Knesko Skin Roller

Skin rollers have been around for a while but investing in the right one makes all the difference. Knesko has a holistic approach to beauty and the brand creates handcrafted products and selects specific gemstones to help balance the chakras. For example, the White Jade Facial Roller is connected to the Crown/Seventh Chakra at the top of the head. Balancing this chakra allows enlightened wisdom and clarity. Rolling has many benefits, such as refreshing the skin, promoting lymphatic drainage, increasing product absorption, minimising fine lines and wrinkles, and contouring the complexion. Leave the White Jade Roller at your bedside throughout the week to roll yourself to sleep or if you're feeling a little more indulgent, then opt to use the Knesko Diamond Radiance Mask in conjunction with the roller to allow the serum to penetrate the skin and provide an even more relaxing and hydrating experience.


Many of us have relied on our smartwatches or similar tools to track our fitness levels for years. Biohacking takes this a step further. A technique that combines art, science, nature, and technology to take control of your wellbeing. Biohacking is essentially a bespoke approach that can optimise your health, performance, and mindset, help fight ageing and increase life expectancy. Many apps can help you understand your personal biology, but WHOOP helps maximise your workouts and eating habits. It tracks your heart rate, calories you burn, physical performance, and recovery period. The importance of sleep and rest is not lost as WHOOP also monitors your sleep cycle from light, deep and REM sleep to help calculate how much sleep you need for optimal performance.


Supplements surfaced many years ago and many of us have dabbled in them. With a focus on balancing the skin from within, supplements come in various tablets, gummies, powders and even IV drips. The key is finding what works for you and what is sustainable to keep up with your lifestyle; powders if you're a smoothie drinker, IV if you have the time each week, and gummies/tablets if you know you can be consistent daily. Nowadays, so many of us suffer from lack of sleep and stress that the external factors become internal, affecting us from the inside out. So, an approach that balances the inside by providing essential vitamins is something prominent brands will be tapping into this year. 111Skin has a targeted trio of 'Beauty Doses', a fusion of actives, botanical extracts, synthetic complexes, and vitamins that become targeted ingredients with lasting effects. The Reparative Dose is an antioxidant supplement and the Clarity Dose is an enzyme probiotic, rich in minerals to balance the microbiome and Intense Dose helps to stimulate collagen.

Menstrual wellness

Recently there has been a lot of conversation about menstrual wellness (about time) as the topic is becoming less taboo. The research being undertaken on the menstrual cycle and how it affects our mood, body, and symptoms showcases the impact our periods can have on our lives and not just at the time of the month. Flo has been a popular app for some time, but Luni has recently launched an aptly named 'Period Tracker', which allows you to follow your menstrual cycle from premenstrual symptoms to ovulation dates and fertility windows. Companies are looking to make significant investments in features like this along with hormone testing and blood tests to allow women to deeper understand their own cycle and how to manage their wellness in conjunction with it. As each phase of our menstrual cycle requires different care, what we put in and on our bodies, can significantly affect how we cope. The research and apps also allow women to pick up on irregularities, which helps diagnose conditions like PCOS or endometriosis, which in themselves require a whole other level of care to maintain overall wellness.
