Can’t describe how happy I’m for my new Jade Roller! I’m a skin care addict and this luxury skin treat is definitely a must have for a glowy looking skin!
I was lucky enough to have it gifted along with the quartz flat stone better known as Gua Sha. I have loved incorporating my jade roller into my nighttime skincare routine, especially when after wearing make up all day.
What is a jade roller?
While jade rollers are having their moment in the spotlight right now, they have actually been a staple in Chinese skincare routines since the 7th century. You can think of them as mini face massagers. They are can be made of beautiful green jade or pink quartz, and are believed to have healing and protective properties for the skin. Jade rollers look like the one in my photo and they have a rolling piece at the top and a smaller roller at the bottom of the handle too, which can be great to use on smaller areas of the face.
What is a Gua Sha stone?
It’s a real beauty restorer that clears tension from the face to reveal a radiant complexion and refreshes mental state too. It can have different shapes and it can me made out of different stones of around 5/7cm of diameter: I decided to pick the quart stone. Gua Sha is a part of an ancient Chinese practice to help reduce puffiness and expressions lines and it has anti-aging purposes .
How do I use it?
I like to keep my jade roller in shady place so that it is cold and refreshing when I go to use it. I use mine at night time: I simply wash my face, apply my oil and roll away all over my skin. It is said that not only does this help with circulation, but it also helps your oils or serums to reach a deeper level of your skin, allowing the product to really penetrate and do its job. I roll back and forth, up and down and side to side, working around your facial contours and adding a little more pressure with the upwards motions (following the little fliers instructions inside my Jade Roller box).

What are the benefits of using one?
The most well-known benefits of using a jade roller include reducing inflammation and puffiness of the skin, reducing the appearance of under eye circles (especially if your roller is cold), stimulating the lymphatic system and blood circulation, brightening complexion, tightening pores, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, and allowing skincare products to penetrate more deeply. Aside from these benefits, I also find it a lovely way to relax and get in “bedtime mode” after my skincare routine in the evening. After using my jade roller, my skin always feels cool and calm and ready for bed.
