At first glance, if you didn’t know any better, you might consider this tool to be a tiny, decorative rolling pin. Or hey, even an ancient piece of art. Well, no: This is a jade facial roller, and you’re going to love it.
The jade roller is nothing new, it’s been an integral part of Chinese beauty since the 7th Century, but the simple roller ball composed of, yep, jade is making a popularity comeback—for its diversity and effectiveness. Let’s run through the long list of benefits, shall we?

Wanting to get a bit more hands-on with jade? Well, the jade Gua Sha tool ($15) is your new best friend then. The same concept of the jade roller, but in a handheld tool, and, yep, it still decreases puffiness and gets blood circulating.
“It is a powerful tool that can help train the muscles of the face to go against gravity,” says Shiva Rose, hollistic skincare guru and founder of her namesake (incredible!) skincare line Shiva Rose. “You always move along the face gently in upward motions away from the center of the face to get the blood circulating and lymph system working. It decreases puffy eyes and helps retain the jaw line.” (Rose uses her Rose Face Oil ($105) while using the stone.)
And just how a chilled roller is effective, same holds true for the Gua Sha tool too. “The stone is naturally cold, but this extra temperature drop will aid in your efforts to increase circulation, drain congested lymph nodes, rid the body of toxins/waste, stimulate collagen production, help with sinus issues, and balance chi.”
Keep the good times (jade) rolling, my friends.
