WOW! JAPAN

Japan is an amazing place to acquire a range of electronics, and recently, more people have been purchasing Japanese beauty gadgets for skincare or haircare as presents for themselves or their loved ones. With that, here are ten of the most popular beauty gadgets!

1. Panasonic's Hair Dryer Nano Care EH-NA5A

This hair dryer makes your hair and scalp beautiful and healthy with the help of “nanoe”, which are nano-sized ions that add moisture to the hair and scalp.
The hair cuticles become stronger when the nanoe gets absorbed into the hair, resulting in hair that’s easier to style to a smooth finish. Furthermore, if you attach the quick-dry nozzle that comes with it, you can loosen up any knots in the hair and dry hair quickly! Care for your hair and scalp by using this every day.

2. Panasonic's Steamer Nano Care EH-SA99

This steamer is popular because it gives you the same beautifying effects as going to a proper beautician. The warm nano-sized steam particles add moisture to the skin, and the cold mist will tighten up your pores, resulting in smooth skin. If you use the steamer’s special aroma tablets, you can relax and enjoy your spa time enveloped in a lovely fragrance.
Another great thing about this device is that it has 5 different settings to help you achieve the skin that you’re looking for. Those with busy lives definitely need to try this product out, as it even has a 7-minute “Quick Warm and Cool Course” - great in the busy mornings!

5. Hitachi's Hada Crie Hot & Cool CM-N5000

This device helps moisturize, tighten, and clean your skin. It can help the moisture particles in skincare products like toner and sheet masks sink into the skin, leaving it moisturized for longer. It also has a sensor that will vibrate when it comes across any wrinkles or lines, so even if you’re not in front of a mirror, you can focus on tackling any problem areas. Useful, right?
In pore cleansing mode, the impurities in the pores are drawn out with ions. The device’s head is made of titanium, so even those with sensitive skin can use it.

6. MTG ReFa CARAT

This popular facial roller uses rolling motions to help you achieve smooth, glossy skin. The rollers attached to it perform beautician-level techniques, firmly gripping onto and moving around the skin in a way that tightens the skin up.
It can roll 360 degrees and can fit into every nook and cranny of the body, so you can use it for the body and not just for the face. Although this device uses weak electric microcurrents, it is recharged with sunlight, so you don’t have to worry about the voltage or charging it. It’s also waterproof, so you can use it even in the bath!

7. MTG ReFa CLEAR

All you need to do is lightly rub this gadget onto your skin to remove any dirt on your face or in your pores that couldn’t be removed when simply washing your face with your hands. Without hurting your skin, it manages to have strong cleansing abilities thanks to the power of ions and the motions of the round brush. The ions and sonic vibrations pull out any dirt from the pores and grooves in the skin.
The brush part is made by the traditional Japanese brushmaker Kumanofude, and is made up of many really soft hairs, making it feel amazing on the skin. Its functionality is also amazing - the brush hairs, which are thinner than the width of your pores, can get into any crevice to pull out any impurities. Now you can finally achieve beautiful skin by washing your face every day!

9. Bioprogramming's Hairbeauron 4D Plus [Straight]

You can view these unbelievable results through the video on the brand’s official website.
Also, even if you use low heat or turn it off, all you have to do is lightly glide it through your hair to give your hair some moisture and shine. By using it every day, you’ll get beautiful hair! To purchase it, head to one of Bioprogramming’s official retailers (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya), Barney's New York locations nationwide, Tsutaya Electronics (Futako-tamagawa, Hiroshima), or places like BicCamera Yurakucho Branch.
