Thanks to innovative, industry-changing brands like FaceGym, our complexions continue to reach new and exciting heights. And we mean that literally. For instance, FaceGym is the United Kingdom's and Unites States' first-of-its-kind gym studio—you guessed it—for the face. Sadly, as of this second, locations are exclusive to the UK and NYC (where one of our skin-blessed editors tried it out for herself and lived to tell the tale!), but in breaking beauty news, the brand has announced some exciting news to function as a happy medium: the nationwide release of its three highly specialized training serums to be purchased (finally!) in the U.S.
"The FaceGym trainers perform a range of lifting and sculpting workouts designed to train the 40+ muscles in the face," explains the press release we received. "Then, results are amplified with high-performance skincare products and non-invasive technology." With limited locations, access to the actual workouts is limited, although if you're in L.A., the brand will be launching a brick and mortar location in spring of 2019. Until then, or if you're nowhere near L.A. or New York, you can rely on the brand's expert stash of skincare staples to work on your facial fitness—no appointment required.

Say hello to the brand's signature formula. It's smartly designed with coffee bean oil to nourish, tone, and lift the skin while also keeping the barrier protected from potential damage and environmental stressors. Then, swertia chirata smoothes and plumps while whiffs of lavender and rose geranium send you to olfactory heaven.
However, if acne and clogged pores are of more concern than lifting and plumping, you'll fall for the clear-skin potion. Ingredient highlights include cucumber oil, FaceGym's trademarked melinoil, bergamot, and palma rosa.
Last but not least of the trio, this starter serum targets dull, lackluster skin. The secret? A strategic melding of avocado oil and CoQ10.
Essentially this adorable pint-sized tool is like a yoga ball—but for your face. Perks include increased circulation and less puff thanks to improved lymphatic drainage.
Before you balk at the price, hear us out. Described by the brand as a powerplate for your face, this efficient device applies gentle yet targeted EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) to the face, which helps strengthen all the tiny muscles over time, ultimately leading to a complexion that's significantly more lifted, tightened, and toned.
Essentially, this collagen-packed serum is the activating essence for the lifting device (if you're so inclined to splurge), and at just $30, it feels like less of a blow to your budget.
Have you ever seen a more stunning specimen of a face roller? We haven't, and we'll be adding this gold one to our skincare wishlist ASAP.
