Sparkly smile

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean HX9352 - £149.41 from boots.com

With its five different brushing modes, this sleek, stylish toothbrush is a force to be reckoned with - and as close to a home hygienist as we've ever had. Complete with smart carry case that charges via micro USB on your travels, there is also an induction glass that plugs into the razor socket, so you simply put the brush in the glass and it charges without wires. It's about the best piece of dental kit around and can really make a difference in a matter of weeks.

Hair today

Tria Face & Body Laser 4X Hair Removal System - £363 from qvcuk.com

There are hair removal options aplenty on the shelves, but none offering the longevity of results that a laser treatment system can, and this is the only cordless system for home use. Using the same diode technology as dermatologists, the 4X delivers permanent removal with an intelligent digital display and pulse counter, to give the user extra confidence to treat face and body. Since its recent launch, it's proving pretty popular.

Well heeled

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File - £29.99 from boots.com

Our feet do the most wor k of any part of our body on a daily basis, but they're often overlooked when it comes to grooming. This new roller gadget gets to work removing the dead skin from the base of your feet, taking the graft out of using that manual, paddle-shaped device and making your soles feel blissfully smooth.

Close shave

Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler - £19.99 from superdrug.com

As razor makers have discovered they can't possibly add any more blades for even closer shaves, they've decided to get smart and create multi-use shaving systems, and here's a most valiant effort. The five blades give a super-close shave, as good as any cut-throat experience. Then there's a super-accurate single blade on the rear for edging those sideburns, and combs to trim your beard to within an inch of its life.

Nails nailed

Klhip - £49.99 from thefowndry.com

The price might make your eyes water as much as if you'd had a mishap with your free 'Christmas cracker' clippers, but these award-winning nail clippers have been crafted to stay on show (not at the back of the drawer amongst the cotton buds) and they're ergonomically near perfect. Combining a better leverage system, ease of control and top-class stainless steel hull, they are the king of clippers.

Spots sorted

no!no! Skin - £132 from my-no-no.com

Squeezing and scrubbing aren't going to rid your skin of those troublesome spots, but this smart, light-emitting gadget has been lauded by many to do just that effectively. By sending a shine deep into the pore, a healing process is started and the heat opens up pores to soothe inflammation. Quick and easy to use, this is one very long overdue piece of kit.

Photobox - free on iTunes

All those snaps on your smartphone are generally destined to stay there rather a long time, so why not liberate them and create all manner of personalised gifts, photobooks and more, using this easy app that's just waiting to bring your images to life.
