Best of 2007: Beauty Breakthrough

Ten years ago, most women hadn't heard of microdermabrasion, Botox was used mostly to treat muscle twitches, and the idea of using a gizmo to stop a pimple was for Judy Jetson alone. In 2007, we have a wealth of high-tech ways to treat the tiniest details of our appearance. Which idea do you consider the biggest beauty breakthrough?

I would have to agree with the Zeno! I love the concept and added plus they have a money back guarantee in the rare case it doesn't work!

for me, it was the discovery of liquid oat beta glucans (used by Rx to improve scar recovery/skin growth) and retinol/retin-a!

definitely the Zeno ... I don't trust at-home microderm/chemical peels. I think that's something you should leave to estheticians.

I've tried both Zeno and ThermaClear. I found that Zeno worked better on my zits and not as painful. I love Zeno for 2007's beauty breakthroughs! Worth the investment...

I used to pop into my facialist when I had a pimple b/c she had a zit-zapping light thing that would make it disappear by the next day. She never charged me, but I would have to work it into my day somehow. Now I can do it myself with the ThermaClear and it works just as well :)

this may seem silly compared to all the gadget choices but i think the o glow by smashbox is pretty innovative. makeup that adjusts to your skin tone is something i never would of dreamed of ten years ago

I think rather than just one big innovation it's all the smaller ones in term of ingredients, intelligent packaging, and so on, that's really been the change-maker. the gadgets in the choices of the poll are often not available to everyone as they're kinda expensive and perhaps a bit harder to handle than a simple face cream in a simple container - so it would make lots more sense to do more research on something more people could use. and that research is really what gets out to the masses, not just the ones so lucky as to live in a developed country, for example (I am Danish but live in India).
