Herbivore Jade Roller (Rs 2145)
Jade rollers or crystal rollers (if you don’t vibe with jade, there are options like rose quartz and amethyst available) took the beauty world by storm when they made a splash on Instagram and inside every beauty blogger’s vanity kit in 2018. The term ‘jade roller’ is pretty self-explanatory and the simple tool is essentially a roller with two cylinders of jade on either side. And even though they only gained popularity in the last couple of years, jade rollers seem to have been around since the 7th century, when they were popular among the Chinese because of the crystals apparent healing properties. Cut to now, jade rollers are all the rage and have found their own fanbase. The roller promises to help ease tension, improve the elasticity of the skin and reduce puffiness under the eyes. Pro tip: Pop the roller into the refrigerator right before you get rolling, and your skin will feel as good as new.
Mia Smart Anti-Aging and Cleansing Skincare Device (Rs 12,086)
If crystals don’t do it for you, you almost always have an electronic gadget which is an equally good alternative. Clarisonic has been playing the field and enhancing skincare technology for a while now. The Mia Smart not only helps you achieve firmer and younger-looking skin but also works as a cleaner. Ideal to use on a daily basis, the device has a multitude of benefits. It does what a regular makeup remover or a makeup blender can’t do. Using patented technology, and multiple attachments, it cleans your face and even blends in your makeup seamlessly. One of its attachments is made to cater to women who have mature skin and are looking to decrease the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. And if used on a regular basis, it shows signs of healthier skin within 12 weeks which in our dictionary translates to hell yeah!
Nurse Jaime Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller (Rs 4934)
Jamie Sherrill or Nurse Jamie as she is popularly known is a celebrity skin expert and her methods and products are a hit with the who’s who in Hollywood. So, it’s no wonder that her Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller made it to our list. The slightly weird-looking device is embedded with 24 massaging stones that briefly energize and enhance the skin giving it an instantaneous glow. Nurse Jamie suggests using the product in a pressing and rolling motion over the desired area for roughly 30-45 seconds every day to see results. The fact that it is portable and easy to use on the go makes it a great travel companion.
Foreo Luna 2 (Rs 14,232)
If you have been aching to get that long-pending facial but your schedule just won’t permit you to catch a break, the Luna 2 could be your saviour. All you need to do is take out 4 minutes from your busy day to squeeze in that spa treatment right at home. The device uses the trademarked Dual T-Sonic technology that replicates professional massaging and cleansing techniques which so far have only been achievable via professional beauty treatments. The Luna 2 uses pulse technology that delivers 8000 pulses per second to help cleanse up to 99.5% of the impurities present in the skin. Yes, that means you can say ‘fare thee well’ to those pesky blackheads that have been bothering you all this while. What’s more, is that the Luna 2 not only cleans the face but even uses lower-pulse frequencies to even out wrinkles and turn back time for your skin.
Angela Caglia Vibrating Rose Quartz Sculpting Roller (Rs 13,945)
If you thought we were done with crystals, then you are wrong. Another hot favourite among celebrities, it was only a few days ago that Courteney Cox of F.R.I.E.N.D.S fame was spotted using the Vibrating Rose Quartz Sculpting Roller while grabbing a drink at a restaurant. Yes, self-care knows no time and place. Made by renowned facialist, Angela Caglia, the roller is made with rose quartz crystals and is quite similar to a jade roller except for the fact that it produces 6000 sonic vibrations a minute to soothe the skin and tone it at the same time. Best used with a serum, the roller aids the absorption process while massaging the skin for optimal results.
MDNA SKIN The Beauty Roller (Rs 14,303)
The Queen of Pop needs no introduction and it’s no wonder that Madonna’s approach to skincare is as tongue-in-cheek as the rest of the avenues she has explored. Since launching MDNA SKIN in 2017, the pop star’s brand has delivered yet another product in the form of the Beauty Roller. A first of its kind facial contouring device, the Beauty Roller which has been created by Madonna’s dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank uses renewable Ultra-Infrared Energy which is powered by the purest form of high-density carbon. Why carbon, you ask? Well, it’s been proven that carbon has improved DNA repair and tissue regeneration in the medical field. Harnessing the benefits of the same, the roller hugs the curvature of the face and body to relieve the skin of tension and make it firm. Even though the device isn’t battery-powered, it has the ability to melt ice so you know that it ain’t no ordinary skincare device.
