One of the (many) dangers of scrolling endlessly through Instagram, is that I end up with a wish-list as long as my arm. I feel like I need a whole top shelf worth of product, most of which I already have perfectly good dupes for. But no matter how much I put it off, I realised I had nothing even close to a jade facial roller. Promising to cure a multitude of issues, from dryness to puffiness, it seemed like they were too good to be true.
Jade Facial Rollers have been around for centuries, so I figured there had to be something to the claims. Double-ended, you can use the smaller end to concentrate on the eye area, whilst the larger roller can be used for defining cheekbones and jawlines. The roller action boosts blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, and it can even massage facial muscles so they feel as well as look a whole lot better.
Since the roller is gentle on skin (the jade feels cooling and soothing to the touch, especially if it’s kept in the fridge) you can use it morning and night. After cleansing and applying my serum and moisturisers, I use the roller all over. It really does feel like it refreshes skin and cuts down on redness. It also works like an absolute dream on hot and puffy morning eyes.
In the evenings, I also use the roller whilst enjoying a Korean face mask. Once it’s been on for 10-15 minutes, I use the roller to really work the essence of the mask into skin. It feels so calming and soothing, and I swear it makes a serious impact on how effective the masks are. Not to mention, it feels incredible! One days when everything is feeling like it’s a little much, the roller also helps to release tension – especially round the temples. It’s perfect for killing migraines before they happen.
Have you ever used a facial roller?
