Jade is balancing and has naturally cooling properties. Use the small smooth stone around the eyes and delicate areas. Treat your complexion to an intensive moisture boost and dial up a healthy-looking glow. Getting a professional peel (or using an at-home product like Rouleau’s Triple Berry Peel) may help give a smoother, smaller-pored appearance, which will result in the skin appearing younger. Rouleau is also a fan ofvitamin C and its proven ability to brighten, boost collagen, and protect the skin from sun damage.
Ensure your face and the jade roller are clean before using. Always prep skin with an oil serum and use light pressure when rolling. To end, very gently roll down the sides of the neck and then towards the center of the clavicle; this helps to move fluid built up in the face towards the center of the body where they can be more effectively processed. Before using the face roller, smooth a few drops of Facial Oil onto the skin.
Mount Lai made our list again with a mini version of their de-puffing jade roller.

Those in-the-know advocate using pure Xiuyan jade, said to boast a host of restorative benefits. However, you may be more drawn to rose quartz, known as a beautifying and healing stone, or amethyst – thought to attract positive energy. While some rollers come in at under a tenner, quality can differ and the cheap ones may feel clunky to use and squeak as you roll, which isn’t so relaxing. Made with 100 percent Xiuyan jade, this roller is both easy to use and feels incredibly smooth on skin. Sit back, and enjoy a truly gentle facial massage without any worrisome tugging and pulling. Look for variation in the stone itself — completely uniform, solid colors may indicate a dupe.
The wider wellness movement marrying skincare with self-care may also play a part in the resurgence of facial tools. As we’re all buying into crystal-infused beauty, it makes sense that we’re gravitating towards tools that’ll grant us time out for a ritualistic daily facial, made from materials revered for their restorative properties. Rolling the applicator across the face helps invigorate the lymphatic system, which promotes detoxification. This type of massage can help reduce signs of puffiness, wrinkles and facial tension to leave skin looking and feeling more youthful.
