We are in the era of automation. From autonomous driving to machine learning, processes that can be left in the care of a machine are already in their hands, or soon will be. The exception? Grooming. It’s still something that we have to accomplish manually, whether scrubbing ourselves or washing our hair. You would think that with so many advancements made in the different fields that someone smart would have thought of a way to automate shaving. While we want for the day that a manscaping robot is invented, here are our three favourite electronic grooming products that will make you look a lot better in a far shorter time.
Clarisonic Alpha Fit
Ever since we’ve started using the Clarisonic Alpha Fit cleansing device, our grizzled faces have noticeably become smoother and more hydrated. All it took was discipline and 60 seconds twice a day. We also like that it’s light and portable, making it easy to throw into our gym bags and carry-on luggage. The bristles are specially designed for men’s faces, which tend to be thicker and more prone to breakouts due to the excess sebum. Sure, you could get away with using your hands to cleanse your face but the Alpha Fit gets deeper into your pores to flush out the dirt and grime. It’s one of the best investments you can make for your face.
The Clarisonic Alpha Fit is available at the Clarisonic counters at Robinsons Raffles City and Tangs at Tangs Plaza.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean
Let’s be honest. If we could dispense with brushing and flossing our teeth, we would in a heartbeat. While electric toothbrushes have been proven to be better for you, mainly because you tend to spend more time on your teeth and gums when using one, not all electric toothbrushes are created equal. The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean rechargeable toothbrush is the best we’ve tried. With firm bristles that are still gentle enough to not bruise your gums, the electric toothbrush also helps to whiten teeth by removing surface stains. It also comes with a travel case so that you can bring it along whenever you travel around the world.
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean is available online and at authorised retailers.
Dyson’s first foray into the grooming and beauty field, the Supersonic is a nifty little device that we can safely say, re-invented hair dryers. More importantly, it works extremely well. Dyson’s engineers spent four years in the lab, tinkering with the current version of the hair dryer to make it better. The Supersonic is balanced in the hand, emits barely any noise and somehow feels cool to the touch despite the warm airflow emanating from it. Now we’re just waiting for Dyson to re-invent something else in the bathroom, preferably the toilet.
The Dyson Supersonic is available at authorised retailers.
