When beauty meets tech

Just as an outfit doesn't seem complete without fun accessories, a beauty routine is much more powerful when devices are involved.  Some of Nepal’s most sought after models share their list of beauty gadgets they say they will swear by.

“My favorite beauty gadget is my Philips hair straightener. It has been with me for ten long years and still its performance is excellent. It’s not time consuming at all; it makes styling my hair easier and faster! I really want to purchase the Phillips facial steamer. I’ve read online reviews about it and they sounded really convincing; the Philips nano iconic home steamer takes skin care regime to the next level.  It promises a clear and bright skin in just six minutes.”


Barsha Thakali

“I love my hair straighter from Braun. It makes my hair really smooth and aligned without damaging it. A beauty gadget that’s on my wish list is a face cleanser by Philips. With the amount of dust and dirt increasing in the valley, I think it’s a must have product. It’s best for blackheads and also makes your skin glow.”




Sandipa Limbu

“My favorite beauty gadget has to be my Revlon 360 dual fat dry hairdryer and styler; it is time saving and makes styling my thick hair effortless. However, if  I were to get me something this year, then I would want the Clinique sonic system purifying, cleansing brush because it’s effective on the T-zone.  Its gentle bristles are said to be perfect for deep cleansing.


Sudipa Pathak

“My favorite beauty gadgets are my foot massager and blow dryer. I can give myself a relaxing massage with my foot massager after photo shoots and shows, while the hair dryer is a basic need. A beauty gadget that I would want to get my hands on this year is a collagen boosting face massager. I’ve heard that it works wonders for removing fine lines and makes your skin really smooth and healthy.”


Sushmita Thapa

“My Remington straightener is something I cannot live without because it has great frizz control and it glides smoothly and doesn’t break my hair. I also really want to try the Babyliss diamond smoothing brush. Everyone has only good things to say about this product. It’s supposedly really good for smoothing out thin hair instantly.”
