As any die-hard beauty lover will attest, you can have all the top serums, creams and moisturizers out there, but you also need the proper tools to make them work their magic. Enter the face roller. The massagers have seen a jump in popularity, probably due to models like Miranda Kerr and Behati Prinsloo touting their powers. But what exactly do these pretty little rollers do?
It’s basically like giving your face a mini facial as the rollers boost circulation, increase elasticity and encourage cell turnover. They also help with lymphatic drainage and aid in the battle against puffiness and wrinkles. The beauty benefits are amplified when you team the device with your go-to serum and moisturizer. But do they work? Well, there’s evidence that jade rollers have been in use in China since the seventh century, so there must be something to it.
Jade boasts protective properties and a calming aura (so it really is like treating yourself to a spa day at home). But face rollers aren’t confined to just jade. You can now roll with rose quartz to feel the love and get spiritually centered with amethyst.
And the good news is, you don’t have to spend a lot to score one of these precious stone rollers. Our eight faves range from just under $16 to $65. You probably pay more for your serum and moisturizer anyway.
“Now I can see that I have something in common with [Angelina Jolie], but I amuse myself, and to look like someone is not my goal,” Sahar Tabar, a young Iranian woman, told Russian news outlet Sputnik, as translated by the U.K.’s the Sun. “Over time I post a photo, I make my face more fun and funny,” she said. “It is a form of self-expression, a kind of art. My fans know that this is not my real face.”
