Happy Monday! Starting this week off on a beauty-related note because after showing off using my new Ice Roller on Instagram Stories the other day I was quickly inundated with questions! Is it better than jade rolling? What is it exactly? Is it worth the $12? Do I also jade roll? So today I’m breaking down both beauty tools and sharing my experience with them.
Ok so here’s what to know about each of these under $20 beauty tools.
A jade roller is a great last step in your nighttime routine to bring you some zen and help de-puff while also massaging in your serums and moisturizers. It helps with lymphatic drainage when done properly (see a good video here on how-to) and I particularly love using it when I return home from long trips to help bring some life back to my face. One additional reason I love having a jade roller? I suffer from headaches and you can use the smaller stone end to apply pressure at points you feel pain. I hold it on my sinuses and temples and really like the relief.
An ice roller is a water or gel-filled tool that you keep in the freezer and then roll across your face. At first it is a little startling and then it feels amazing. Unlike a jade roller, you use this on a clean face. (You can also use it on other muscle groups like your back to help reduce inflammation or relieve pain). My face felt so much better after use. More taught, less puffy and my pores looked less noticeable. I am hooked.

Have you used either of these tools? Thoughts?
