Jade rollers– they’re nothing new in the world of skincare, in fact they’ve been used in traditional Chinese skincare routines since the 7th century. Believed to boost blood circulation, reduce swelling, and apply skincare products more effectively, these handheld massagers come double-sided with two jade stone heads that are run across the face. Apply your favorite serum or natural oils and ease your facial muscles by gently massaging your skin. Roll along your jawline to create definition, and relax as the jade does the work! Different stones have different benefits, so read up on your gemstones and get rolling!
Glossier is a classic, and it’s so popular for a reason! One of my favorite Glossier products is the Futuredew Oil-Serum Hybrid. What is it? Glossier describes it as “a shortcut to the way your skin looks after a full skincare routine—dewy, glowing, cared-for—in one long-wearing product.” I couldn’t agree more. This serum leaves your face feeling refreshed and glowy, but not overly-hydrated or oily. Best used as the last step in your skincare routine, this product doesn’t interfere with makeup but instead acts as a solid base to your primer and foundation, adding that extra natural-looking glow. It’s 100% plant-based, its main ingredients being jojoba, grapeseed, evening primrose, and rosehip oils. The oils are suspended in water to create a cushiony, silky formula that your skin will love. This product is a must-have for your skin routine!
