#BeautyBestSellers: The Best-Selling Beauty Tools On Net-a-Porter (And Why)

Not only do facial tools look good on the ‘gram and pretty on Pinterest, their resulted usage promises the same for our face. Many of the popular hand-held devises feed our collective desire for more sculpted features – something we’re now very used to seeing via social media (often enhanced by make-up, dermal fillers and/or flattering filters), and clearer skin (who doesn’t want those influencer #makeupfreeselfies to be their reality?). But they also buy into the marriage of skincare and self-care. A ritualistic daily facial routine incorporating a tool, be it a traditional or techy one, means time out for oneself in our increasingly connected and hectic existences.

“We’ve seen a huge increase in the demand for both traditional and technology-based tools,” a representative from Net-a-Porter tells us, confirming that sales of facial tools were up by 189% in 2018. In addition to the likely face rollers, the luxury retailer says it’s also "started to see an increase in the demand for face cleansing tools, such as those by BeGlow and Foreo, which had previously seen a decline in 2017”.

Below we explain why Net-a-Porter’s current best-selling beauty tools are so popular.

Claims: “Featuring 72 LEDs, this device uses therapeutic light to penetrate the dermis, stimulating collagen production within cells to combat the signs of ageing around your eyes. Within just two weeks of daily use, fine lines, crows feet and wrinkles appear smoother and the skin’s elasticity is visibly improved.”

Verdict: Think of your skin as a road and the pot holes are wrinkles, thanks to collagen breakdown. LED can stimulate collagen to plump your skin. You may look wacky wearing this, but it’s far superior to a topical product at tackling smile lines.
