If you're into crystals - you'll love this relaxing eye mask. Rose quartz is renowned for its 'self-love' energy, and this ultra-luxurious eye mask contains real rose quartz crystals woven together. While it's not a techy-tool you'll see instant results from, the cooling weighted mask is great if you want a moments peace to relax and meditate.

This LED face mask isn't a cheap one - but you can guarantee it's a good'un. In fact, even Kim Kardashian-West has raved about it. It harnesses the power of two different wavelengths of light to help reduce fine lines, plump and ramp up collagen production. Not only that - but it helps reduce dark spots, scars and breakouts. A real investment for your skin.

If you're worried about hair loss or thinning, this clever tool can help care for your scalp and boost follicle production. It works on the same principle as microneedling - causing trauma to the skin, ramping up healing and blood cells. The fine needles also create 'micro channels' for scalp serums to penetrate deeply (and hopefully get to the root of the issue)!

Loved by a lengthy list of celebrities and beauty experts, this is the OG LED face mask. It's even clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in just 4 weeks and 95% of users said their skin tone, texture, firmness and tightness was improved. Impressive.

While a diffuser might not necessarily spring to mind when you think of beauty tools - it's worth a mention. Because Aromatherapy Associates The Atomiser Ceramic Diffuser is a gamechanger if you want to scent your home like a spa. Not only does it look 10x more chic than any other diffuser we've tried, the 100% natural essential oil blends are long-lasting and beautiful-smelling. Well worth a payday splurge!

We're a fan of beauty fridges at ishonest (read our article here) and Net-a- Porter's has to be the chicest out there. It also has the option to warm - meaning you can put in warm flannels for a truly spa-like facial experience.
