9 High-Tech Products to Add to Your Beauty Arsenal
See the Clean
If you’ve ever wondered whether your fancy face wash is doing its job, you can count on Dr. Dennis Gross Color Smart Cleanser & Mask ($28; dgskincare.com) to take out the guesswork. The firming formula contains tiny beads that release the active ingredients (like brightening vitamin C and soothing green tea) as you massage it onto your face, changing the color to orange.
Pick the Perfect Pink Lip Shade
Not only does the vitamin E- and jojoba oil-packed Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy ($19; sephora.com) leave lips shiny and hydrated, it also contains technology that changes color from sheer to the perfect-for-you-pink—all according your skin’s natural pH levels.

Gorgeous hair is easier than ever! EGO Professional Smart Touch Screen Hair Dryer ($198; qvc.com) puts a perfect blowout at your fingertips, letting you adjust the speed and temp of your airflow via the built-in touch screen monitor.
Create Curls Effortlessly
Effortless waves are now actually effortless, thanks to the automated, motion-sensor curling iron T3 Twirl 360 ($230; t3micro.com). The barrel knows which way to turn by just a flick of your wrist, so you can get gorgeous curls without any arm-twisting.
Fix Your Undetected Skin Issues
You know you should treat those wrinkles and sunspots when you see them crop up, but what about the skin issues you haven’t discovered yet? Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum ($59.50; clinique.com) is jam-packed with a laundry list of firming, soothing, brightening, and hydrating ingredients to target your specific skincare needs.

Operate Machinery When You’re Dead Tired
Paul Mitchell Neuro Motion Touch Activated Dryer ($185; paulmitchell.com) is perfect for groggy, pre-coffee mornings. This touch-activated hot tool turns on when you pick it up and turns off when you put it down. Even better, it goes into standby mode when it’s not in use, so you’re in the clear if you forget to unplug.
Get a Personalized Scrub
The latest Clarisonic Smart Profile ($265; clarisonic.com) offers a completely personalized wash. Its brush-head includes a pre-programmed Radio Frequency Identification chip that sends instructions tailor-made for certain areas of your face. For example, it reduces its pressure when you start washing delicate areas, like around your eyes.
DIY Hair Color
The perfect hair color may be as easy as a click of a button, thanks to the Madison Reed At-Home coloring kit ($24.95; madison-reed.com). Use their website to color match for the exact shade you want, listen to the step-by-step instructions on your smart phone, and even live-chat with a pro colorist to help solve any color snafus.
