I’ve thought the jade rolling action has been a little ridiculous since I first started seeing these rollers everywhere on Instagram — but of course, I can’t write about it if I haven’t tried the product.
Obviously, I had to get one myself to see what all the fuss was about.
I’m not going to bullshit you and tell you a product is ~magical~ if it really isn’t. If you’re new on here please know that if it beauty trend sucks, I have no problem saying so.
I don’t think Jade rollers totally suck, but don’t believe everything you see on Instagram.
So first of all, WTF is a jade roller?
It’s a paint roller-type looking tool made from solid jade stone. You can get one on amazon, Tj-Maxx or a beauty store. But really, please avoid Sephora’s overpriced $30 roller (mine was only $10).
I’ve been using my jade roller for about a month now, and all it really does is decrease under-eye puffiness and work to flatten out sheet masks.
The roller isn’t worth it unless it’s refrigerated.
The cold jade stone is what works to decrease the puffiness and honestly, it does feel really good on my face.
I read somewhere that using a jade roller can be “cheek-defining” which kind of seems like BS to me. Unless you’re jade rolling for about an hour a day, I’m not-so-sure this can guarantee a Kim K cheekbone. Nothing I’m saying is based on facts and is really just my opinion. But that doesn’t take away from that fact that some people are truly convinced a stone will decrease wrinkles.
I’ll continue using a jade roller mostly because it feels good on my skin; however, it isn’t a product that I would say you absolutely need.
I say “don’t believe everything you see on Instagram” because a lot of influencers will try and convince you it is a holy grail product. But at the end of the day, it’s only a cold stone.
Look, I’m not totally hating on jade rollers. It does make my skincare routine a little more fun and like I said, the cold sensation feels great on my skin.
But if you truly want to fight wrinkles, try a good face oil with some Vitamin E and don’t rely on only this.
What are your thoughts on jade rollers?
