Frequently Asked Questions
What is a gemstone facial roller?
Gemstone facial rollers are a Chinese skincare tool that have been used for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, the gemstone facial massager was built to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin and have a number of skin care benefits.
What are the benefits?
Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, gemstone facial rolling has a multitude of benefits including but not limited to:
- Improve blood circulation
- Reduce puffiness and inflammation of skin
- Promote lymphatic drainage
- Relieve facial and jaw tension
How do you use a gemstone facial roller?
- Start in the middle of the face and roll outwards across the cheeks.
- Move to the eyebrows and roll upwards across the forehead.
- Move below the lower lip and roll downward across the chin.
Use the smaller end for more delicate areas and harder to reach places, use the larger end for broad surfaces.
How often should you use a gemstone facial roller?
We recommend face rolling twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening after washing your face. However, you can use the face roller as many times as you want, whenever your face needs a moment of soothing calmness.
Face rollers can be used in harmony with oils and serums for added penetration and absorption into the skin.
How do you clean a face roller and where do you store it?
After each use, a soft microfiber cloth can be used to wipe the face roller clean.
For a deeper cleanse, dip the cloth into a bowl of soapy water (water + a cleanser) before wiping the face roller.
You can dry the face roller using another dry cloth or let it air dry. If you find that your face roller is squeaky after a wash, add a few drops of oil to the sides of the roller head.
For an added cooling effect, our face rollers can be kept in the fridge.
What is the difference between the Jade Roller and the Rose Quartz Facial Roller?
Both have the soothing benefits that facial rolling provides. In terms of properties, jade retains its coolness for long periods of time and is balancing for both mind and body. Rose quartz has calming properties and aids in meditation and reflection.
In terms of differences, the Rose Quartz Facial Roller is better for oily skin while Jade Rollers are better for dry skin types. However, both are great to have in your beauty cabinet and can be used together for optimum results.
