In 2014, the female-dominated beauty market saw men’s grooming products rake in about $6 billion in the U.S.--$19.3 billion worldwide. With that amount expected to reach $21.4 billion by the end of this year, it’s clear the days of hair-taming, skin-beautifying products are slowly, but surely breaking gender stereotypes. And for good reason—who doesn’t want perfect hair, skin, and teeth? In celebration—or perhaps commiseration, depending on how you feel about sharing your vanity staples with your S.O.—we’ve culled together our picks for unisex tech essentials that are soon to be standards.

Acne Anecdote

Quasar Bio-Tech’s Baby Blue delivers blue-light therapy to any area of the body to tackle and treat both inflammatory and hormonal acne. The hand-held device emits blue LEDs—between 415 to 420 nanometer wavelengths—that penetrate pores to kill the bacteria that cause breakouts. Welcome to a clean and clear complexion without the harsh side effects, like the tight, dry skin, often caused by topical treatments.

Tooth Tamer

Foreo’s ISSA is an electric toothbrush that combines Sonic Pulse Technology—183 high-intensity pulsations per second that remove plaque via micro-sweeps—with a unique silicone design—quick-drying and non-porous to resist bacteria buildup— to both clean and whiten teeth. Complete oral-care in a colorfully unique package.

Wrinkle Eraser

NuFace’s Trinity is a hand-held device for the facial area that unveils a radiant, youthful complexion, courtesy of microcurrent technology—tiny, pulsating currents of electricity. In as little as five minutes a day, the FDA-cleared application naturally enhances skin tone and reduces wrinkles. It’s not an overnight wonder, but dedicated, long-term use is seen to be successful.

Hair Enhancer

HairMax’s Laserband 82 is an FDA-cleared, hands-free laser that stimulates hair growth in roughly 90 seconds. The cradle design, mimicking a headband, delivers laser light to individual hair follicles, encouraging energized and revitalized hair growth. Clinically tested, the device has been shown to reverse the thinning process and increase hair fullness.
