Life can get so busy that we tend to neglect pampering ourselves. Even worse, when we finally get round to calling the facial salon, there’s no guarantee our favourite therapist is available when we are. Philips Beauty steps in to help resolve this issue with its innovative, high quality beauty tools for getting and maintaining a salon-worthy complexion.
Get smoother, firmer skin
Equipped with Dual Action System and Airlift system, Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01 ($489) buffs away dead skin cells while "vacumming" away dirt and debris (you’ll feel a slight lifting suction when using it). It also reportedly improves circulation, which is said to stimulate the natural cell renewal process. The promise is younger-looking skin in just four to six weeks. In fact, 93 per cent of women who tried it said their skin was instantly smoother, while 85 per cent agreed that their complexion looked healthier and more radiant.
Bid blemishes adieu
Developed for acne-prone skin, Philips VisaPure Essential Anti-Blemish SC5278/13 ($289) features a rotating brush head that works with your favourite cleanser to dissolve sebum and reduce oiliness, and slough off pore-clogging dead skin cells and product residue. Its long, thin bristles are said to be 10 times more effective yet still as gentle as using hands to wash your face. Afterwards, your pristinely clean skin will be better able to absorb your skincare products. The brush head is also said to improve microcirculation and stimulate blood flow for more radiant skin.
Enhance the efficacy of your skincare
Using a combination of ultrasound energy and vibrating motions, Philips VisaBoost Ultrasound Facial Moisturiser SC2800/00($269) works to boost the efficacy of your serums, lotions and face creams. How? The ultrasound waves are supposed to break skincare down into micro-droplets that are more easily absorbed, while the vibrations gently massage to reportedly stimulate microcirculation for enhanced absorption. Expect a fresher, smoother complexion instantly, and more moisturised skin after six weeks.
Never pay for a facial again
Philips VisaPure Advanced SC5370/10 ($455) is just what the active modern woman needs. Powered by the brand’s DualMotion technology, this smart gadget gives you a DIY home facial as it rotates and vibrates to thoroughly cleanse skin, and massage the face and eye area.
It comes with three interchangeable accessory heads that you attach to the VisaPure Advanced’s body. An Intelligent Head Recognition system then automatically runs the programme – specific levels of rotations and vibrations, and duration – unique to each brush.
The cleansing brush head for normal skin, which rotates 250 times per minute, has 17,000 soft, ultra-fine bristles that do their job most gently and effectively.
Feel like pampering yourself with a face massage? Switch it out for the Customized DualMotion Revitalizing Massage Head. Codeveloped with Japanese massage and beauty specialist Chico Shigeta, it marries technology with traditional massage techniques. It generates 750 tapping movements per minute to reportedly improve circulation while toning skin, and the five nobs gently knead and relax facial muscles while improving lymphatic drainage for a more lifted, radiant complexion.
The Fresh Eyes massage head, on the other hand, helps refresh tired eyes stressed by all that staring at desktop and laptop monitors as well as smartphones. Specially designed for the delicate eye area, it has a ceramic-coated rounded tip and gives a gentle, cooling massage that, according to the brand, helps to improve microcirculation and encourage lymphatic drainage.
