The Luxe List: 5 Spring Beauty Saviors

Merilee Kern

Spring is that perennial time of renewal. It’s a season that beckons us to revitalize our self-care regime and amp up our beauty boosters. Here are five spring pick-me-ups that’ll have you sitting pretty all season long.

FreezeFrames Cool Care Eyewear

Don’t we all suffer from puffy eyes from allergies, beauty treatments or fatigue? Try this product created by a medical professional to nurse puffy eyes. FDA-approved and recommended by plastic surgeons, FreezeFrames Cool Care Eyewear provides UVA protection in combination with cooling eye therapy. The secret treatment comes in reusable Gel-Pads that soothe the puffiness with gentle cooling compression — just like a nurse might apply ice to swollen, symptomatic eye areas. Prior to use, freeze or put in a cup of ice for 20-60 minutes, then magnetically click the gel pads into the FreezeFrames casing. The frames fit most any face, male or female, and target the lower and upper eye areas (and even the nose-bridge area for Botox users). $89.95,

Panasonic Facial Ionic Steamer

This spa-quality facial steamer restores the moisture in a user’s skin to combat the effects of dry skin that may result in fine lines and wrinkles. It produces ultra-fine steam — thousands of times smaller than a typical steam particle — for easier absorption. The warm steam also helps open pores to gently and easily assist in removal of make-up, dirt and oil. Nano-sized steam particles help smooth and soften the skin, sloshing away any dirt or excess oil. It brings the spa facial experience home with a quick six-minute steam cycle and a compact size with one-touch operation. $99.99,

Simplehuman Touch Sensor Mirror

The SimpleHuman sensor mirror is great for makeup application and grooming needs. Under the wrong lighting, makeup colors can fool you. This wireless pedestal mirror contains a Tru-Lux light system that allows you to see subtle variations in your makeup color so you’ll always know when your makeup is color-correct, day or night. It emits light that’s more than twice as bright and more closely simulates natural sunlight than other options on the market. Designed for maximum adjustability, the mirror tilts back fully so you always have a clear, comfortable view. Also cordless and rechargeable with a standard USB, one charge lasts up to five weeks. $200,

Nanoe Moisture Infusion Hair Dryer

Know someone who covets silky smooth hair? The Panasonic Nanoe Hair Dryer is a great option. This dreamy dryer captures moisture from the air and infuses it back into hair. The hair dryer also features three temperature settings — hot, warm and cool — to effectively style hair, while a cool shot button helps lock in hairstyles. It also comes with three attachments, including a diffuser, set nozzle for precise styling and a new quick-dry nozzle that is unique to Panasonic. A removable filter makes cleaning hair and dust particles easy. $129.99,

Tweexy Nail Polish Bottle Holder

For the fashionista in the family who might be a little clumsy from time to time, there’s Tweexy — the original, patented, spillproof and wearable nail polish bottle holder. Tweexy is a soft and flexible one-piece beauty staple that makes polishing nails easier. It securely holds every branded and standard size nail polish bottle on the market. It’s made of silicone and expands and contracts to comfortably and securely grip any size fingers. It’s small enough to fit in a makeup bag and weighs less than one ounce, so it’s extremely portable and can go where you go. $9.99, Tweexy,com.
