Editor Quote: "In my opinion, this tool is 100 percent worth the splurge and the hype. It's essentially six beauty devices in one, which means you can spend the money once rather than spending it six different times on six other devices. When weighing out the cost for myself, I thought about the fact that a suitable microcurrent device would run me anywhere from $300 to $500, and an LED mask could cost anywhere from $150 to $200, which meant that it was worth it just for those two attachments alone." — Renee Rodriguez, staff writer and social content producer

Editor Quote: "Being in my mid-twenties I feel like it's time for me to have that timeless handbag that just makes me feel put together no matter what I'm wearing or where I'm going. So when I saw Brandon Blackwood's Nia bag in black hard leather I immediately put it on my holiday wish list.
