Tried and tested: I used a rose quartz roller for a week, and the results were interesting
You have probably seen them on social media, and you have probably wondered what the hell they are.
Well, I decided to road test facial rollers, to see what all the fuss is about.
I went with the Image Skincare Rose Quartz Facial Roller, purely because I'm such a fan of the brand.
It seemed like a no brainer.
Facial rolling is actually goes back to ancient times, and it's rumoured to have a tonne of benefits.
So what goes on?
The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was just how cute it looks.
Honestly, even if you never used it, it would just look bloody great on your shelf.
However, when I did use it, I was pleasantly surprised.
If I'm totally honest, I wasn't totally convinced by the whole roller concept before, but I sure am now.
And wonderfully, it comes with instructions, so you know the craic.
Basically, when massaging my face with the roller, I started at the centre of my face, under my eyes and cheekbones.
Then I moved out towards my hairline using the smaller of the two pink stones.
Then, using the larger stone, I moved down towards my jawbone, starting at the centre of the chin and moving out towards the bottom of my ear for a lifting effect.
The benefits were subtle, but they were there nonetheless.
The main one was actually related to my stress levels. The ritual of the roller was really calming, which I loved.
I also noticed my skin was less puffy, and my pores seems tighter.
It's a handy way to ensure all of your product gets absorbed too, if you choose to roll with a product.
All in all, I loved it.
The Image Skincare Rose Quartz Facial Roller is currently available online for a reasonable €29.99.
