Health & Beauty Tech I’m into Now!


Northern Light Technology Flamingo Lux Bright Light Therapy Floor Lamp

Why I like it:

Most S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder) lamps are small desktop lights that have to be positioned just right to be effective. This floor lamp is much more versatile; it stands 4 feet tall fully assembled with a rotating head which allows you to angle the light for maximum comfort. Electronically powered ballast assures reliable performance with no flicker and no hum. Offers 10,000 lux at Full Spectrum Lighting a comfortable distance of 12 inches, UV blocked. Made in Canada following strict CSA safety guidelines, Canadian Standards Association. I put it together myself in under 5 minutes.



Oral-B BLACK 7000 SmartSeries Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity Powered by Braun

Why I Like it:

It talks to your phone using Bluetooth giving you real-time feedback with the Oral-B app focuses brushing on your most important areas, tracks habits over time, motivates with helpful oral care tips, and senses when you brush too hard! Cross Action round brush head with perfectly angled bristles for a precise clean; though my favorite brush that comes with it is the whitening brush. I feel like I just came from a dental check up. Clinically proven superior 3D cleaning oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

Rechargeable with 6 modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Deep Clean, and Tongue Cleaner.

Reminds you to floss and use mouthwash. Keeps a calendar on how long and how many times a day you brush. And more….

I’m lazy when it comes to dental care. The least amount of work the better! So I love to be told by the brush what to do to motive me!



Clarisonic Smart Profile Cleansing Brush


Why I Like it:

Just when I thought Clarisonic couldn’t get better, it did!!! It got intuitive! SMART technology enables the Smart Profile device to read the two new smart enabled brush heads and to automatically adjust between gentle and deep cleansing for an optimal head-to-toe experience. Brush Head replacement indicator illuminates to prompt you when it is time to replace the brush head. Speed auto-adjusts! Amplified turbo speed removes makeup 11x BETTER than hands alone delivering superior cleansing results. You can use 4 manual speeds as well!



DAFNI Hair Straightening Ceramic Brush

Why I Like it:

Heating to a safe 185°C/365°F in mere seconds, this tool evenly distributes heat without damaging your tresses in the process and you control the level of volume. Plus, it’s simple to use, no clips or fuss, you simply brush your hair! I love that it saves time! The bristles glide through your hair without tugging or pulling, creating straight, frizz-free strands fast.

Skin Care Technology Comes Home – Is It Worth The Money?

Via MedEsthetic

Home-use devices are hitting their stride with new FDA approvals and growing consumer awareness.

Home use skincare devices generated an estimated $1 billion worth of retail sales in 2011 with exponential growth expected for the next five years, according to the market research firm Kline and Co. (“At-home Skin Care Devices 2011: U.S. Market Analysis and Opportunities” The majority of these devices were developed to address the same concerns voiced daily in medical aesthetic practices, covering the spectrum from acne treatment to hair removal, hair restoration and antiaging.

One of the first home use devices to find a widespread consumer base is the Clarisonic (Pacific Bioscience Laboratories, Developed by the same folks behind the Sonicare tooth-brush, the Clarisonic—now available in professional-only and consumer models, under the names Clarisonic PRO and Clarisonic Mia, respectively—uses a sonic frequency that allows for more than 300 movements per second. The vibration clears oil and dirt from the pores. “There is a lot of clinical evidence showing it does cleanse the skin better, and that it also aids in the absorption of topical products, such as skin serums,” says Jennifer Peterson, MD of Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center in Houston.
While skin cleansing devices, such as the Clarisonic, claimed the biggest share of the market for home use devices in 2011, the fastest growing segment of the market belongs to blue light LED-based devices indicated for acneic skin. Among the most popular devices in this category are the TRIA Blue Light ( and the Tanda Clear+ (

My thoughts:

While the products do work they will not provide the same level of treatment that you would get at a Dermatologist or Estheticians office because they have the knowledge of the clinical procedure and products that will work best with a treatment and have access to more effective devices.
