It takes a lot for a beauty product or treatment to earn the status of innovation. Not only must it stand apart from the rest, but it also has to be designed and developed in such a way that imparts the newest technology, best-sourced ingredients and results that pale in comparison to anything else on the market. These breakthroughs do all that and then some.

Jo Loves Fragrance Paintbrush ($55)

If the idea of spraying perfume directly on your skin is one you avoid at all costs, a new fragrance innovation provides another avenue for you to wear your favorite scent. Housed within a clickable paintbrush applicator lies a gel formula—there are four scents to choose from—that dries down on the skin. Drawing inspiration from her own technique of applying scented lotions and perfumes to her skin with brushes, Jo Malone took the concept one step further and invented this fun take on the fragrance experience. Perfect for on-the-go touch-ups, gently sweep the brush onto the normal spots you would apply perfume, like your wrists, behind your ears and the backs of your knees, for a beautiful scent you’ll never want to fade.

Juvéderm Vollure

Joining the family of Juvéderm fillers is Juvéderm Vollure, a hyaluronic acid–based dermal filler that can treat deep nasolabial folds. Providing smoothness for up to two years, this totally reversible filler differs from others in that it uses a special Vycross technology, which is essentially a blend of different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid that give the product staying power, to soften severe wrinkles.

Dr. Dennis Gross Spectralite Eyecare Pro ($159)

While it may look more like a pair of space-age sunglasses than a skin care tool, this light therapy device is the first of its kind and hones in on the delicate eye area to tackle fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and slack skin. Worn for just a few minutes at a time, slipping the hands-free gadget over your eyes safely delivers a steady stream of therapeutic LED light to restore the skin around your eyes and make the area look younger than ever.

Skinceuticals Cryocorrect

Dark spots are nobody’s friend. And all of your spot-zapping efforts may be null and void if you aren’t treating the cause at the source. Using cryotechnology to freeze away age and sunspots from the face and body, the super fast treatment—five to eight seconds to be exact—produces results that can be seen in as little as one treatment. While it may take a few days for the treated area to scab and flake off, this could be, hands down, the fastest and most precise way to get your skin totally even in color.

Glossier Invisible Shield Sunscreen SPF 35 ($25)

Wearing sunscreen day in and day out is nonnegotiable. Unfortunately, too many women shy away from shielding their skin on the regular due to irritations, sensitivities and breakouts instigated from SPF. This clear gel formula, which almost doubles as a primer, takes the residue factor out of the equation. Instead of being left with a white cast on your skin, all that will linger is pure protection.

Revlon 360 Surround AC Styler ($60)

Not your average blow dryer by any stretch of the imagination, this one goes one step further with a twistable nozzle that lets you decide how, and where, you want the air to flow. Turn it horizontally to use it as more of a classic dryer to target the width of your hair; vertically dries your hair from root to tip. No matter how it’s used (small sections of hair easily slip inside the tunnel) drying time is majorly cut down because every angle of every strand is evenly dried. 

7/7

Silhouette InstaLift

Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts sagging skin in the midface without surgery. Making use of absorbable cones that are attached to absorbable sutures and put into place by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, skin is repositioned with added volume and minimal downtime (there may be minor swelling or bruising). An immediate difference can be seen, along with continual improvement in your skin as your body makes new collagen to improve the quality of your skin.
