The 10 Best Beauty Apps To Download Now

Get beauty treatments delivered right to your door

Trips to the beauty salon and the spa are no longer as good as it gets for some TLC. The reality is you’re likely to smudge a fresh manicure while paying, or undoing the effects of a relaxing massage the second you leave sanctuary. And since most of us lack in time for an afternoon pedicure or wax, the rise of beauty apps and mobile services has worked in our favour. In fact, 35 percent of bookings are made outside of working hours.

Having a glam squad on your doorstep, a massage in the comfort of your own home, or a blow dry in the office, all with the tap of a finger has proven genius (and very convenient for us lazy ones, ahem). But which ones are worth it? Thankfully they’ve been refined over the last couple of years, and now the best possible services are on offer. The Grazia beauty team have tested and trialled the lot – what we like to think of as Uber’s prettier little sisters – to bring you the best of the bunch…
