Tria Age Defying Laser

What it does: An at-home laser device to treat and diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

Who it’s for: Those looking for state-of-the-art anti-wrinkle technology without a spendy derm doctor appointment.

How it works: Tria’s FDA-cleared laser treatment device produces a beam of light that penetrates deep into skin causing cellular disruption and promoting skins natural collagen booting process. This hand-held device accelerates the skins natural rejuvenation process and smooths away imperfections for a firmer, smoother, more even complexion over time.

TRIA Age Defying Laser

What to expect: Once you select the level of treatment you prefer, all you need to do is slowly glide Tria across freshly cleaned skin in an even motion. There’s no reason to push hard, and Tria should not cause any pain. The easy-to-hold device will beep when the treatment is complete. For the best results, use Tria five days a week for 12 weeks. It’s that simple!

Why we love it: Tria puts age defying technology in the palm of your hand with this innovative Age Defying Laser. With the same technology used by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, this at-home FDA-cleared laser treatment delivers impressive results in as little as two to four weeks. The collagen boosting process diminishes fine lines and wrinkles for smoother, younger looking skin with every use. All this from the comfort of home!


NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device

What it does: Lifts, tones and smoothes skin with low-level electrical currents. If anti-aging is your primary concern, this device is for you.

Who it’s for: NuFACEis suitable for all skin types and ages, and can be used all over the face. It even comes with special attachments for eyes and lips.

How it works: The device sends micro-currents of electricity deep into the skin, setting off a series of cellular changes, including the production and storage of collagen and elastin. The result is an improved, lifted appearance, better skin tone and balance, and diminished pores.

What to expect: Even though NuFACE sends electricity into the skin, it's not painful. In fact, it feels a little bit like a cold, tingly massage. The device offers an immediate tightening effect after the first use, and—with continued use—leaves skin lifted and firmed.

Why we love it: Two words: instant gratification. If we want to look better in five minutes flat, NuFace is our go-to. As soon as we finish just one treatment, our skin looks noticeably tighter. And since microcurrent treatments don’t require any downtime, the device has become a staple in our party-prep routines. We can put makeup on afterward, and go about our routines as usual. With continued, daily use, the NuFACE offers long-term results, too. In just sixty days, we saw a significant improvement in facial contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction.


Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System

What it does: Basically, Conture is a gym for your skin. Like a personal trainer for your face, this gentle, hand-held device helps you tone your way to tighter, brighter, more refreshed-looking complexion.  

Who it’s for: Conture is suitable for anyone who wants to diminish signs of aging quickly and painlessly.

How it works: Think of Conture as a workout, but for your face instead of your bod. It gently suctions up and releases skin, stimulating blood flow and exercising facial muscles to produce a brighter, tighter complexion.

Conture vs Nuface

What to expect: In terms of sensation, Conture is kind of like a tiny, handheld vacuum. It’s totally painless—you’ll feel some light suctioning action, but that’s it! To use, slowly glide the device along your face and neck after cleansing, pausing three to five seconds before each glide. Repeat the process as many times as you need to fully cover the treatment area. Bonus! There’s even a gentle setting for the delicate tissue around the eyes.

Why we love it: It’s not just our bodies that need those gains—our complexions do, too! Unlike a strenuous weight-lifting session, however, Conture doesn't completely suck. (Well, it does, but it's effortless and easy, and won't make you sweat. You know what we mean.) The best part? After using it for a month, several b-glowing staffers reported tighter, firmer, more luminous skin. So if you're looking to combat signs of aging without making a huge financial/time commitment, Conture is the perfect device for you. Go on, tell fine lines and wrinkles to suck it!

SHOP Conture


What it does: The device uses nano-current technology to treat numerous skin conditions, ranging from acne to anti-aging.  It boosts radiance, enhances lymphatic drainage, kills blemish-causing bacteria, accelerates cellular turnover and more!

Who it’s for: ZIIP is suitable for all skin types, even highly reactive, sensitive skin. It’s great for those with multiple skincare concerns, i.e, acne and aging.

How it works: ZIIP sends nano-sized electrical currents deep in the cellular level of your skin to promote the production of collagen and elastin, plumping and smoothing from the inside out. Nano currents also zap bacteria that’s causing acne, boost radiance, and enhance lymphatic drainage. You can look forward to seeing brighter, clearer skin after just four to five sessions with your ZIIP.

Ziip nanocurrent device

What to expect: There is no pain or recovery time with ZIIP, and the treatment is much less sensory than you might expect. The metal discs may feel warm on your skin, but in a pleasant way. Much like the NuFACE, you will see both immediate and cumulative effects.

Why we love it: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—having a ZIIP is like having your own personal facialist, right at your fingertips. We love the device’s versatility, and how it addresses more concerns than just aging. In fact, the ZIIP offers not one, but four electrical facials—anti-aging, sensitivity, acne, or treating the delicate eye area. It’s basically all the benefits of clinical treatments, without the clinic.


Dr. Dennis Gross SpectraLite™ FaceWare Pro

What it does: An at-home device that uses red and blue LED light to stimulate collagen production and stave off acne-causing bacteria.

Who it’s for: Anyone who wants to treat fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.

How it works: This FDA-cleared mask is lined with anti-blemish blue light, plus four spectra of powerful red lights. Infrared and deep red light work to boost collagen, while light red and amber keep skin cells healthy, fade dark spots, and reverse sun damage. The totally hands-free device stimulates collagen, firming skin and plumping out lines and wrinkles. It also reduces acne, minimizes pore size, calms redness, promotes an even skin tone.

Dr Dennis Gross SpectraLite FaceWare Pro

What to expect: The hands-free device is surprisingly comfy to wear, and was carefully designed to fit all face shapes and sizes. It's a totally painless treatment, and only takes 3 minutes to complete.

Why we love it: Look ma, no hands! Since b-glowing gals busy gals, we’re crushing on the convenience factor of this device. It’s hands-and-hassle-free, allowing us to run around the house doing chores while simultaneously treating our skin. Plus, the built-in timer shuts off automatically after three minutes—no thought required! Oh, and then there are the results: AMAZING. We noticed firmer, plumper, smoother skin in just two weeks, and one b-glowing staffer raved about how clear and calm her complexion looked.

TriPollar STOP X

What it does: A convenient at-home treatment device that significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle while improving skin texture.

Who it’s for: TriPollar STOP X is effective, safe, and painless making it suitable for all skin types. If you're someone who is interested in addressing fine lines and wrinkles, this device is a must.

How it works: This innovative device uses groundbreaking Radio Frequency (RF) technology to penetrate layers of the dermis stimulating dermal rejuvenation and accelerating the natural production of collagen and elastin.

TriPollar STOP X

What to expect: The TriPollar STOP X is easy and effortless to use. Simply apply the Preparation Gel to clean skin and move STOP X over skin in a slow circular motion. The device will feel warm on skin as it reaches the optimal temperature for the most effective treatment. Results aren’t just immediate, they’re lasting.

Why we love it: There are plenty of reasons to love this tech-savvy beauty device! From it’s sleek look, to the immediate results—TriPollar STOP X is in a league of its own. The warming sensation makes this at-home treatment ultra-relaxing. We love that this beauty treatment is painless, safe, and requires zero downtime.
