Face masseuse: You officially have some competition.

Therabody SmartGoggles – $199.00
These massage, vibration, and heating glasses that can tell when you’re stressed are expensive. But with Therabody’s achievements, they probably feel very surprised.
The company says the SmartGoggles weigh less than a pound, but judging from the photos, they definitely look more like a giant goggles than a simple eye mask.
What makes these goggles so smart? They come with “SmartSense technology,” which can ostensibly tell if you’re stressed by measuring your heart rate. It then works to reduce that heart rate with a nice facial rub, and you can view your heart rate data in the app to see how a session might have eased your poor nerves.
The face is often the site of stress expression, which may be why massaging the forehead and around the eyes seems so appealing.
Liz Aigner, a licensed esthetician and massage therapist, previously told Well + Good: “We keep stress on our faces because this is where we express our emotions. You can relieve this stress by giving yourself a facial massage, but why bother when some futuristic goggles can do it for you?
Therabody has a track record of creating expensive products that, let’s be real, feel great. The company isn’t new to facial treatments either: This spring, it launched the firming beauty tool TheraFace Pro, which our reviewers called a “game-changing” device. “. With the launch of SmartGoggles, it looks like Therabody wants to help all of our faces feel those good vibrations.
