Just for you

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good beauty gadget that can help us look better. From lifting and giving you a more defined jawline to boosting skincare absorption and making skin more glowy, the right tool can make all the difference. 

And while at-home facial tools and devices have always been around, the pandemic has certainly given rise to even more interest in them when clinics, salons and spas were made to shut. 

Incorporating facial devices can elevate your skincare and self-care routine, but investing in multiple facial devices offering different functions can be costly, space and time-consuming. 

Enter the Est.Lab LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy – an all-in-one multi-tasking facial device that marries different therapies and technologies to achieve a deeper cleanse and address an array of skin concerns. 

Here’s What You Can Expect

The good news: You no longer have to toggle between different devices to achieve the best results for your skin. The LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy has all the answers.

How? This all-in-one beauty device – fits comfortably in the hand and boasts five different technologies to target a variety of skin issues from skin sagging to dullness and breakouts.

#1 Galvanic Ion to help clear hard-to-reach grime, impurities and sebum embedded deep within the pores. The result is a deep yet gentle cleanse to get skin clean and clear, and without aggravating it. 

#2 Sonic Vibration to promote blood circulation and detoxification while improving skin metabolism and minimising puffiness. With up to 8,000 sonic vibrations per minute, it also helps to relax tense facial muscles and provide a lifting effect. 

#3 Thermal Compress that warms to a comfortable 35 to 45 degrees Celsius, it helps boost ingredient absorption and blood circulation, which in turn encourages cell regrowth for healthier skin. 

#4 Cryo Compress with its low temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees Celsius, works to soothe irritation, tighten the pores and even reduce puffiness. At the same time, it also brightens a dull complexion too. 

#5 LED Light Therapy, which includes red for anti-ageing, blue to target acne-causing bacteria and green to calm and reduce pigmentation.

But if you’re worried about having to figure out which tech works best for your skin issues, Est.Lab takes the guesswork out with its four pre-set facial treatment modes. 

The Cleanse mode combines Thermal Compress, Sonic Vibration and Galvanic Ion to deeply cleanse the skin, removing dirt and grime trapped in the pores. To address signs of ageing, the Firm mode uses Thermal Compress, Sonic Vibration and LED red light to improve skin elasticity and plump up the skin from within for a more youthful complexion. But if pesky breakouts is your worry, the Soothe mode will be your go-to. Combining Cryo Compress and LED blue light, it instantly cools and soothes away redness while targeting P.acnes bacteria at the same time. Finally, the Glow mode, with its Sonic Vibration and LED green light, works to improve skin clarity, reduce the appearance of pigmentation and brighten a dull complexion. 

And because our skin is never the same every day, choosing the right mode to address the skin concern of the day has never been easier.

“We liked the interchanging between the thermal and cryo functions, and it switched rather quickly. The blue LED combined with the cryo function really helped to wake our skin while calming it at the same time. The red LED and the thermal function, on the other hand, was great when we needed to firm our skin, especially under the eye area and jawline. 

We saw a noticeable improvement in our skin clarity and texture, especially when it looked and felt tired. Not only is it the most value for money, but it’s definitely a device that modern women should have in their vanity.”  – Her World Beauty Awards 2023 judge
