When it comes to the latest technology, I'm not one to keep up with the Joneses. Yes, I still have wire headphones and no, I've never owned an iPad or an Alexa, but one type of tech that I'm happy to invest my money in is beauty gadgets. My current routine regularly incorporates a dermaroller, a gua sha, an electric cleansing brush, and an LED mask (and I'm not ashamed to admit that I keep all of my sheet masks and serums in a beauty fridge). I just happen to be a firm believer that there's no better way to achieve a spa feeling at home and level up your beauty routine than with some quality beauty tools.
Whether you're looking for the perfect hair dryer to achieve a bouncy blowout, a gel-manicure curing lamp or the next-gen in skincare, Amazon is a one-stop shop for all of the best beauty deals and brands; think GHD, Shark, BaByliss, Revlon, Oral B and more.

I can't quite believe the incredible saving on this Braun IPL hair-removal device. If you've been wanting to invest in at-home IPL laser-hair removal, take this as your sign. This kit has everything you need to drastically reduce unwanted hair, whether it be on the face or body, and currently has a huge £310 discount. The cordless, handheld device makes light work of treating both the face and body (zapping the skin every 0.5 seconds), making treatments very quick. The set includes different attachment heads to treat targeted zones like the upper lip and bikini line, and a razor is also provided to prepare your skin for treatment. And it all comes housed in a chic pouch too. This is by far the best deal I've seen in Amazon's Big Deal Days sale.
Everyone knows that GHD's hair straighteners are the OG cult hair tool, and this model is highly regarded amongst beauty editors. "This is the max version of the original GHD hair straightener, which has extra-wide plates that allow you to straighten more hair, quicker," says Who What Wear UK's beauty editor Eleanor Vousden. These are a great choice if you have very long, thick or curly hair that typically takes longer to straighten—they'll make the process so much quicker.
Doing your own gel-polish nails at home has never been easier, thanks to this full kit from Mylee, which has everything you need for long-lasting gel manicures, and I'm so pleased to see this in Amazon's Big Deal Days sale. In addition to the lamp, you receive both the base and top coat, nail prep solution, gel remover, lint-free wipes and four timeless gel colours; from deep cherry red to light pink. This is incredible value and will virtually pay for itself in the money you'll save from in-salon gel manicures.
In my opinion, this might be one of the best curling wands around if you like a soft wave in your hair. The large, rounded barrel creates effortless, tumbling waves, and the variable temperature settings mean you can set it at the exact heat needed for your hair type. It also comes in smaller wand size if you prefer a tighter curl, as well as in a tapered wand, which all create different results.
GHD's Helios is the brand's hero hair dryer, which delivers salon-worthy results and is adored by every hairstylist I know. “The GHD Helios hairdryer gives you the perfect flow of air when drying to create a natural fullness, stunning shine and smoothness like no other," says celebrity hairstylist Zoe Irwin.
Want to dry and style your hair whilst achieving a salon-worthy blowout? This tool makes it so easy. The oval-shaped brush head creates volume and lift at the roots and bounce through the lengths, and I'm shocked that it's over 50% off—don't hold out on this deal if you want to bag one.
GHD has answered our prayers for on-the-go hair straightening with its cordless hair straighteners, which are conveniently compact in size to pop into your bag or hand luggage when travelling. Thanks to Amazon's Prime sale, these are generously discounted.
Wavers like this one are the key to effortless, beachy hair and glamorous Hollywood waves in minutes. The three 32mm barrels perfectly bend the hair for a seamless result, transforming your locks in an instant.
The SteamPod revolutionised the way we straighten our way without having to worry about direct heat damage, and now you can get it at a generously discounted price.
