We’ve been busy trying out all of the (sometimes) wacky but always wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet by storm – from the hair pods seen backstage at Victoria Beckham during fashion week to Sarah Chapman’s £138 Meso-Melt Infusion at-home facial and Ciate’s nail stickers which promise an Instagram-ready manicure in minutes.
These are the products that every veteran beauty sleuth is talking about – but that you want to do a bit of research into before buying.
There’s no better time than a national lockdown to test out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a snazzy new hair treatment or at-home facial system, only to find out it doesn’t *actually* work.
Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.
Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see?

On GLAMOUR Tries this week, our Social Media Editor Chloe Laws tried dermaplaning with the Hollywood Browzer Beauty Smoother electronic dermaplaning device (49.95, Amazon).
If you’ve not tried dermaplaning before, it’s not as scary as it first looks. We promise. It’s great for removing dead layers of skin, peach fuzz and giving your face a deep exfoliation – leaving your face instantly smoother. Using a dermaplaning device like this on by Hollywood Browzer Beauty also allows for improved skincare absorption and a refined skin texture. Oh, and you can use the device to help to tidy up the hairline for a sleek finish.
Once you’ve turned the device on, you should start by the ears in small stroke and move downwards. The vibrations offered by this electronic dermaplaning device – as opposed to a manual one – increase blood flow and make for an easier and faster process. Chloe found the whole experience painless, super quick and simple. “Just remember to add moisture back into your skin after dermaplaning,” she said. This can be done with a moisturiser, facial serum or facial oil.
