I love trying new beauty products. If you read my blog, you know that! But I also need great beauty tools to help me utilize all of the great beauty products that I use. Here are some fabulous beauty tool choices for both home use and for traveling.
Zen Cosmetics is a glamorous storage unit that's designed to hold onto your beauty essentials. Its grippy silicone base accommodates primping tools of varying sizes, from brushes to pencils to tweezers. It'll keep you looking your best and your counters clutter free. I was able to fit very large brushes and very small tweezers in the same unit! It is so versatile.
Zen Cosmetics was invented by Edwin Van de Bospoort of the Netherlands. Like all Quirky products, Zen Cosmetics was invented and influenced by real people like you. Edwin Van de Bospoort is an industrial product designer by education, but spends his days designing interfaces. After opening a junk drawer under his table he found a puzzling mess of pens, batteries, and randomness. He invented Pen Zen to help him and his coworkers keep their desks a little cooler, calmer, and more collected. Its popularity sparked a makeover: Zen Cosmetics. Cool story right? I love that this was invented by a real person.

Meet Slim. With 22,000 brushstrokes per minute and a choice of bright colors and patterns, you'll look and feel fabulous every time you use your Slim Sonic Portable Toothbrush. Its mascara-style vented cap means you can grab it from your handbag, backpack, or pocket to brush up anytime, anywhere. It is perfect for gym, office, travel and more. I love the fun styles and the vented cap!
Pearly white teeth are always in fashion and the Slim Sonic's gorgeous on-trend cheetah print will make all other toothbrushes seem so 1950. Simply press the button and this power toothbrush will leave you with the most important accessory of all - a clean, white and sexy smile. The Slim Sonic comes with a free replacement head and AAA battery, so you're ready to go as soon as you open the package!

The three panel design allows you to clearly see where all your items reside, while at the same time keeping them fresh and clean - safe from exploded bottles. The zip-out design allows you to re-attach the liquids pouch at the hotel, leaving you extra room on the vanity and keeping all your toiletry items in one place. Hang it on the towel rack and everything is in sight. The EMME features 7 interior pockets made of non-toxic PEVA plastic, 2 zip out pouches for liquids and other items and 12 TSA approved bottles with labels.
With more pockets and compartments than you can imagine needing, it was designed with the frequent traveler in mind. The EMME Bag’s practicality goes way beyond TSA checkpoints. It even comes with idea pages in each compartment, so you know what would fit best where. Look how long it folds out to (see above)! It will easily hang in your hotel room upon arrival. Then, when you leave, just zip and go! I love my EMME Bag! It is exactly what I have been looking for to make my traveling easier! No more ziploc bags, now I have EMME.

If there is one beauty tool that I use every single day, it is the Clarisonic PLUS. If I miss a day for some reason, I can tell. Yes, it really is that awesome. Versatility at its best, Clarisonic PLUS offers a total face and body experience for clean, beautiful skin. Your face (and your body) will thank you.
Let's face it, you spend lots of money on lotions and potions, serums and more for your beauty routine. This is the very product that will make all of those things work like they should. Cleansing is the essential first step in a healthy skin care ritual. The patented Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to deeply cleanse the skin far more effectively, yet more gently, than traditional superficial cleansing or simple rotating brushes. The result is noticeably smoother, more radiant skin. I would not go without this product. I love my Clarisonic PLUS!
Buy It :: The Clarisonic PLUS can be purchased on Amazon for $225.
I tried my first Beautyblender from a Glossybox, and I have been using it ever since. Beautyblender is the ultimate make up sponge applicator. It was invented by top Hollywood make up artist Rea Ann Silva. Silva created Beautyblender to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion. She knows that the key to a perfect face is a perfect blend.
Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. It is such a soft and easy blender to use. I have been using the same one for months and have been washing it with the Blendercleanser. It is still as great as ever!
Buy It :: You can purchase a set of two Beautyblenders on Amazon for $24.99. You can also pick up the Blendercleanser for $14.08 to keep your sponges clean and fresh.
Stay organized and prevent losing your cosmetic pencils by organizing them in the Every Beauty Sharpening Pencil Organizer. To use, snap in a pencil into one of the 14 organization slots. Turn around the organizer to find a precision pencil sharpener on the bottom. This is a really convenient and useful tool!
Every girl (and guy) needs a great pair of tweezers! These Every Beauty Slanted Safety Tweezers turn inward when not in use. This is to prevent poking yourself or other items when storing.
Get silky smooth skin after just one use while removing your makeup. Just add water to activate Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads and remove your makeup. No rinsing needed. There is also no moisturizing needed as each pad has Argan Oil Extract. These simple to use pads are perfect for traveling. You can see the Argan Oil Extract is every pad. It might look kind of "dirty" - but that is just the infused Argan Oil Extract.
To use, you can choose your length, because each pad is perforated to the next pad. Add a few drops of water and remove your makeup. Do not squeeze the pad. No rinsing of the face is needed. 100% Natural, these pads contain Vitamin E and are hypoallergenic with no alcohol and no parabens.
