The Top Battery-Powered Beauty1 of 8
By Laura Vogel
Celebrity facialists, beauty bloggers and, likely, many of your friends have been raving about them—vibrating beauty brushes and tools are hot right now. In addition to delivering smoother skin, these gadgets also work over the long term to even out tone and reduce the appearance of pores. Find out more about the latest high-tech tools for your complexion.
Modern Classic2 of 8
The company that kicked off the modern vibrating-brush craze has a new model called Aria. What makes all Clarisonic brushes unique is the way they cleanse: The brush's bristles vibrate at 300 movements per second, loosening and removing makeup and dirt. The Aria has three speeds, a battery-strength indicator and a USB-enabled charger.
SHOP NOW: Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush, $199
Fresh Spin3 of 8
The just-out Olay Va-Va-Vivid cleansing brush is just over 3 inches long (great for travel). It also has a triangular rubber head and bristles, which deliver more of a massage than a scrub. This brush—which comes packaged with Olay's Shine Minimizing Cleanser—has narrow tips, which make it easier to clean hard-to-reach areas around your nose and eyes.
Skin Softener4 of 8
The super-fine crystals and gentle cleansers in this system's single-use pads make skin appear smoother (each kit comes with 12 pads, and refills are available). Use it three times a week to slough away dry skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
SHOP NOW: Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System, $16
Spa Style5 of 8
This multitasking tool comes with four snap-on attachments: a face brush, a wide body brush, a spongy facial buffer and a pumice stone (for tackling rough skin on the feet and elbows).
SHOP NOW: Spa Sonic Skin Care System, $60
Heavy Rotation6 of 8
If you want to try a vibrating tool without a huge outlay of cash, his Ulta-brand brush is extremely wallet-friendly. It includes one attachment with rotating bristles (to give skin a gentle, exfoliating scrub) and a soft foam one (for applying moisturizer that will penetrate more deeply than when rubbed in by fingers).
SHOP NOW: Ulta Dual Action Cleansing System, $25
Multitasking Tool7 of 8
This kit is a huge bargain for those who seek multiple functions from their brush. It has two speeds and four attachments—a sponge, an exfoliating brush, a blemish extractor and as a rolling massage head. The last implement will increase circulation, giving your face a rosy glow.
SHOP NOW: Revlon Spa Pore & Facial Brush Set, $20

Another one for the bargain-hunters among us, this brush's rotating head has two speeds, it's waterproof (feel free to bring it into the shower or bath), and it comes with Olay Pro-X exfoliating cleanser.
