The Holiday Gift List ~ 5 Beauty Gadgets

Here come the holidays and all their gift giving (and gift receiving!) glory. If you are making a list, either for giving or for presents you’d like to receive, here are 5 of my favorite beauty gadgets that make incredible gifts:



I adore my clarisonic. I have had mine for years and it still works perfectly, so it’s actually a great investment.
When I’m shooting a movie I need my actresses’ skin to stay immaculate, so I get them each a Clarisonic – you just can’t beat them. Read about Clarisonic here

Amika Switch Kit

Amika Switch Kit

This is my favorite new hair curling system. I love having the flexibility to switch out curling irons and wands without having to buy multiple curling irons.
Today I’m changing up my look and using the “beachy waves” wand.

Sonic Diamondcare Toothbrush

Sonic Diamondcare Toothbrush

You can’t beat a great smile with gleaming teeth!
This is the ultimate way to get superwhite, super clean teeth.
I love the travel pack too – it’s convenient and functional

Q Redew

Q Redew

It looks like a torture device but its actually a hair refresher!
When your hair is looking flat, curls are lacking luster or maybe you just need to squeeze one more day out of your blow out, the Q Redew works like a cool air humidifier paired with a steamer. You won’t make your head wet, and the steam won’t give you crazy frizz, it just revitalizes the ‘do and makes it look like you just finished styling your hair.

Nuface Trinity Facial Toning Device

Nuface Trinity Mini

I’m a huge fan of microcurrent facial treatments.
Basically on a muscular level they tone and shorten the fibers, and on a dermal level they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the combined result being significant anti-aging. 
The Nuface Trinity Facial Toning Device lets you give yourself these amazing (and expensive!) treatments at home, saving you a small fortune.

The Amika Switch Kit

Oh I am obsessed!!


My favorite new thing is my Amika Switch Kit curling system.

This may just be the very best way to buy curling irons.


This is super cool, because it has one base – the switch base, which comes with a 1 inch barrel . From there you can click off the 1 inch barrel and switch it out with a variety of different barrels. There’s a 1.25 inch barrel, a 1.5 inch and a 0.7 inch. So essentially you have 4 curling irons in one.


I love that on a whim I can change up my hair and give it Hollywood waves or beachy waves, curls or just a little soft movement. I can go glam or I can make it casual.


The barrels are tourmaline infused ceramic and use far-infared technology to heat the hair from the inside out, protecting the natural moisture, while negative ions close the hair’s cuticle giving you shiny, frizz-free, silky curls.

You can adjust the temperature up to 430 degrees (I keep mine at 360), the system is dual voltage, so you can use it overseas as well as in America, and it has a 9 foot cord that has a swivel base, so it doesn’t get caught up in anything.

I’ve actually had mine for several months now, and my daily changing out of the barrels (sometimes multiple times per day changing barrels) hasn’t damaged the switch base or the clips at all. 

Amika has a youtube channel with video tutorials on different looks you can create with each barrel.

The Amika Switch Kit makes a fabulous Christmas gift too!
