The beauty gadgets A-listers were advised to use before the Oscars


Celebrity skin expert Jamie Sherrill (a.k.a Nurse Jamie) has a client list which reads like a who’s who of Hollywood royalty. This awards season alone she’s been working with Kate Hudson, January Jones, Emily Ratajkowski, Jessica Alba and Ruby Rose in the run-up to the Oscars.

“Celebrities love our ‘Hollywood Mummy’, ‘Code Purple’ and ‘Ice Queen’ in-spa treatments for the red carpet,” she tells us, which incorporate all sorts of techy trickery to get skin looking tighter and brighter. The first utilises an infrared sauna (explained here) and silicone strips applied to the face, while the latter treatment calls upon cryogenic therapy (explained here) paired with the application of a re-hydrating silicone wrap, for “perfecting red carpet décolletés” she says.

Nurse Jamie adds that the ‘Code Purple’ is the go-to booking the day before the red carpet. A “celeb favourite treatment”, she says, “it includes a radio frequency skin tightening paired with our famous UpLift beauty roller to help infuse our Nurse Jamie Botanical EGF complex, giving celebs that firmer, glowing complexion that is red carpet-worthy.”

This might not be the first time you’ve heard of her UpLift beauty roller, given that Hollywood appears obsessed by it. The weird-looking wand is one of the most in-demand and Instagrammed facial rolling devices that people are using to practice facial massage.


“We designed this tool to mimic the effects of our signature facials,” Nurse Jamie says, explaining that its rhythmic rolling action can help to de-puff and assist with congestion. Her other odd-looking tool she packs A-listers off with is the TriAngle, a sonic face massager that she says “helps to restore glow and firmness to the face,” allowing skincare products to absorb better into the skin.


“I always recommend that my celebrity clients use the UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller and TriAngle Facial Beauty Tool prior to getting their glam done,” Nurse Jamie told us when we asked her what she instructs of her clients pre-Oscars. Not exclusive to red carpets or A-listers, though – the devices are both available at Harrods meaning we can all employ their trickery for a more photogenic complexion. Well, here’s hoping.
