It's no secret that beauty gadgets come at a price but the best are well worth the spend, especially when it comes to maximising your 'me time'. With a wealth of beauty gadgets and technology on offer right now it can be tricky to navigate the array of beauty tech buys that the industry is serving up. Luckily for you, though, we've done the legwork already. The Grazia beauty team has tried almost every piece of beauty gadgetry going and these are the ones that came up trumps. From LED light therapy face masks to laser hair removal devices, meet the top notch gadgets that are worth investing in.

If your chosen beauty gadget can match the results of a more expensive treatment, it's worth buying

Still need a bit of convincing when it comes to the cost? Think of it this way. Laser hair removal. Always wanted to try it? Or maybe you've completed a course and are thinking about booking a few more sessions to finish the job off. A course of six sessions for your lower legs typically costs upwards of £700, and that doesn't guarantee that every hair will have vanished at the end.

The Phillips Lumea Prestige IPL Hair Removal Device comes in at almost half that cost (£399.99 to be precise) and there's no limit placed upon how much you can use it. Sure, regulations dictate that the strength of the laser cannot match that of a bookable service, but that becomes less relevant when you consider how consistently you are able to put it to use. The effects of using this laser three times a week on your legs could match the results gained by a once-a-week laser hair removal appointment. You see our logic?

The same thinking can be applied to LED light therapy masks (LED light therapy sessions don't come cheap), and face massagers - just think what you spent on your last facial. If your chosen beauty gadget can match the results of a more expensive treatment, it's worth buying.

Point taken? Let's take a look at the good stuff...
