My New Fav Toy: Stone Facial Roller

So unassuming…

My fav new toy is a stoner facial roller.  As you may know, I love beauty gadgets.  I’m the same girl who reviewed the Eye Zone and the Clarisonic.  But while I have lots of high tech jazz in my cupboard (along with some items that don’t fit in my cupboard – ahem, a body vibration machine and light book for seasonal affective disorder), sometimes you want to get back to basics.  That’s why I love my stone facial roller.  Yea, I’m a modern-day Rousseau (wink).

The Stone Facial Roller

I love how simple and easy it is to use, the fact it doesn’t require batteries or instructions and the most important part: it makes me look better.  And that’s the key – results, am I right?  This little roller is what I’ve been using every morning in my AM regime to move lymph and stimulate circulation (re: collagen production).  Its said to be used in Chinese Medicine for cleansing our energy and bodily water but I think for the aforementioned reasons its handy to even those who don’t buy into the concept of health through energy.

Online people are saying it helps to slim down your face (I wonder if that’s what Miley’s using) – but I haven’t seen this yet.  But saying this, I haven’t been using it for that long (a few weeks).  What I see is less puffiness and my face muscles feel more relaxed.  The latter is important as I have a really tight jaw – and this roller rolls over the jaw line nicely.  I also like how it cold because its stone but it can also be warmed up if put into the sunlight.  I have been using it cold (out of laziness) but I think that I’m going to start trying to use it warmed up too.  In my professional opinion, I have a hunch that cold is better for the puffiness while warm will be even more relaxing for the face muscles.

Did I mention it was cheap?  I got mine in Chinatown at an herb store for $5.99.  While many of the facial rollers online say they are jade, I figure for this price, mine is some simple stone.  But like I said, I’m not looking for anything fancy – its back to basics and I like the fact its also austere – shedding all the frou frou and looking only at the outcomes.  And these outcomes have made it my new fav toy.

    Great post – just went back and read your Clarisonic review! Would you say it’s a worthwhile investment?
