FAQs

What do face rollers do?

Other than being aesthetically pleasing and making for a fine centerpiece on your beauty shelf, face rollers have some really great benefits for your skin. They sculpt your jaw and cheeks, increase blood flow for glowing, healthy skin, promote lymphatic drainage, and help your products absorb into your skin more quickly.


There’s no right or wrong way to use the jade roller, it’s definitely a “you do you” type of tool. That being said, most face roller aficionados recommend that you roll in upward strokes from the center of your face outward with a medium pressure. It helps to visually split your face in half, and work one side at a time, in this order:


  1. Neck: Using the large end of the roller, start at the base of your neck and roll in upward strokes, stopping at the base of your skull. Roll 5–10 times on the right side of your neck, then repeat on the left side.
  2. Cheeks: From the center of your chin, begin rolling upward toward your ear. Repeat the motion 5–6 times then move to the opposite side.
  3. Forehead: Hold the roller parallel to your eyebrows, and roll from the center of your forehead to your temple. Repeat 5–6 times, then switch to the other side.
  4. Under eyes: Now use the small end of the face roller to gently roll from your inner eye toward the outer corner. Repeat 10–15 times, then move to your other eye.
  5. Brows: Place the small roller between your eyebrows, and roll out over your eyebrow. Repeat 5–10 times, then switch brows.
  6. Jaw: Still using the small face roller, run it over your jawline bone from the bottom center of your chin up toward your earlobe 5–6 times, moving it back and forth over any areas that feel especially tight.

Get your roll on! Jade rollers are super fun and easy to use. Grove writer Mackenzie tried one out for a week and gave us her thoughts on these gorgeously green beauty tools.


How do you use a gua sha stone?

Gua sha stones deliver the same benefits as a jade roller, but with a slightly different technique. Gua sha stones come in a bunch of shapes and sizes, but our favorite — and the most versatile — is a tool that looks a bit like an asymmetrical arrowhead.


To use a gua sha stone, visually divide your face in two like you would with a face roller. Starting from the middle of your face, scrape in upward strokes using the same order of events as the jade roller. Gua sha can be a bit trickier to get the hang of, so to help out, here’s a handy video from Beauty by Earth that covers proper gua sha technique.


Is a rose quartz or jade roller better?

Whether you go for rose quartz or jade is totally up to you! Face rollers and gua sha stones are also easy to find in amethyst, opalite, and agate. Each stone has its own properties, but choose whichever material speaks to you.


Jade: Jade is known as the stone of eternal youth and is beloved for its balancing and cooling properties.


Rose quartz: Rose quartz is the stone of love and has a soothing effect, encourages self-love, reflection, and acceptance.


Amethyst: Amethyst cleanses negative energies, promotes clarity and relaxation, and helps open the third eye.


Opalite: Opalite removes energetic blockages and brings inner peace.


Agate: Agate helps rebalance and harmonize the energies in your body.
