5. Foreo UFO 2.
I discovered this device a year ago and love using it for an at-home facial either in the bath or while watching TV.
Initially, I thought the Foreo UFO 2 looked like a speaker (you see it, right?), but it’s an electronic mask device that has a full-spectrum LED light, as well as Thermo and Cryo Therapy, giving you a luxurious facial within 90 seconds. Yes please.
6. Foreo UFO Masks.
You use the Foreo UFO Mask - Call It A Night 7 Pack with the the UFO device - they're little circular sheet masks that click onto the UFO to deliver that at-home facial experience.
They also come in different variants based on benefits like brightening, hydrating and nourishing, so you can buy a few to target different concerns with each facial.
I find my skin looks more radiant, hydrated and even the morning after using the UFO the night before - it's the same feeling post-facial!
7. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner.
A few years ago, a hairdresser friend used the Pureology Hydrate Shampoo 266ml and Pureology Hydrate Conditioner on my hair.
I'd previously tried and hated them, but when he told me you need to wash your hair with shampoo twice, I was blown away by how hydrated, soft and clean my hair felt.
Think of shampooing twice like a double cleanse for your hair; once to clean the surface and the second to go deeper and clean the scalp.
Also, the aromatherapy scent makes for an incredible sensory experience in the shower. The conditioner smells of peppermint and gives you that tingly fresh feeling once you step out of the shower.
8. ghd platinum+ black hair styler.
Even though I work from home, doing my hair is the one way I feel ‘done’ and ready to work. It’s the way I transition from home to work mode - the beauty equivalent of getting out of your pyjamas.
I love waves and volume in my hair, so I use the ghd platinum+ black hair styler to curl my hair. It only takes 10 minutes to use, and then I brush my hair out to break up the curls, spritz with some hairspray, and I’m done.
I’ve used this straightener since I was 18. It took more than 10 years for it to finally break and for me to repurchase another new one last year, so I can personally vouch for these stylers truly lasting the distance.
9. Aesop Resurrection Duet.
I have the Aesop Resurrection Duet above my kitchen sink and it’s a little bit of luxury for my hands now that I’m constantly washing them when I’m in the kitchen.
Both the hand wash and cream smell incredible. They’re nourishing, a little bougie and pretty to look at.
Add to cart next time you want to treat your hands.
10. Sensori+ Freshfield Mask Sanitiser.
I only discovered this product a few months ago when it first launched during the second Melbourne lockdown, and it's the product I didn’t realise I needed until this year.
With just a few spritzes, the SENSORI+ FRESHIELD MASK SANITISER 30ml sanitises your mask between uses and instantly refreshes it, making it smell and feel like it’s been freshly washed.
It's just a great staple to have in the handbag and at home. I recently made a top up order for three more - now, I have them scattered in my car, handbag and around home like a lip balm.
Such is life in 2020.
