One of the trends I keep seeing over Insta is people using a jade roller as part of their skincare routine. Before seeing them all over Insta, I had no clue what one was – or did! Essentially, a jade roller is used to boost the blood circulation, reduce under eye swelling and to help absorb skincare products more evenly into your skin.
I decided to purchase a jade roller and to find out for myself if it really does make a difference! I have incorporate this step after applying my moisturisers (morning and evening), I have added it in here to hope it helps the moisturiser sink into my skin much quicker – the jade roller has two sides, one with ridges, which should be used first to bring the blood to the surface, then the softer side to even it out. Some people suggest putting the jade roller in the fridge so it is cold and soothing on the skin – but I have just decided to use it normally first, to see if I have any benefits before using it in different ways.
I started using this product on a Monday to give myself an accurate review of this product. After the first use, I could feel my skin pulsing as the blood was brought to the surface – I used the ridged side until my face became red (not aggresively) and then used the smoother side. When I woke up Tuesday morning, I felt like my skin was much softer. After using this product daily for over the past 2 weeks, I am glad I now use it!
When I wake up in the mornings, I find my under eyes feel much more ‘awake’ and that my skin instantly feels plumper. I also make sure to use this product downwards, I use it straight down my chin and onto my neck – I feel it has also helped with the tightening of my skin around that area.
For something so inexpensive, I feel like this is definitely something you should now be using as part of your skincare routine!
