UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller, $69 at Nurse Jamie
Love the soothing sensation of a jade facial roller? This skin tool has the effect times 24 because the hexagonal roller head has that many massaging stones. The rhythmic rolling action replicates the technique Nurse Jamie uses in its signature facials for an energized, uplifted complexion. Don't forget to use the roller on the rest of your body since it feels as good as a traditional massage.
Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool, $28 at Sephora
Once someone is addicted to facial rollers, it's only a matter of time before they move on to the practice of gua sha. The unique stones deliver a lifting facial massage. Move all the edges of the stone up and out along your face to transform lackluster skin and counteract facial tension. Choose between rose quartz (for calming and to promote self-love) and jade (for balancing and cooling).
Rose Quartz Heart Facial Sculptor, $58 at Kora Organics
This heart-shaped facial sculptor may even beat facial rollers in terms of cuteness. The gua sha tool turns faces from puffy and tired to smooth, radiant, sculpted versions of their former selves. Bonus: The tool promotes feelings of love and reduces tension. Take a cue from founder Miranda Kerr and use it with Noni Glow Face Oil or any other cream, serum or oil.
Stars Aligning Crystals, $29 at Free People
There are many ways to incorporate crystals into a beauty routine. This bag contains a set of six "moon bathed" crystals (rose quartz, amethyst, citrine) that can be used as part of an at-home facial. After applying facial oil, choose a crystal to massage the product into your skin. The mini crystals will ensure all the goodness is absorbed into pores while promoting positive, balanced energy.
Ice Roller, $28 at StackedSkincare
Keep this roller in the fridge for a refreshing pick-me-up. It's filled with gel and water and has a stainless steel barrel so there's no need to be concerned about leakage. When gently rolled over skin, the beauty tool helps depuff and calm inflammation and redness. It's suitable for all skin types, especially those who are prone to puffy eyes. It's even suitable for use on acne.
Rose Quartz Sculpting Tool, $36 at Elequra
Though it resembles a dog bone, this tool is actually made to fight the effects of gravity. The long, curved sides are for your cheeks, the larger end for the jaw and the small end for around that delicate eye area. The rose quartz crystal retains heat and cold, which helps with the absorption of active ingredients in skin care products.
Black Obsidian Crystal Wand, $23 at Nordstrom
Gone to the gym for your skin? "Face gyms" are having a moment in beauty. You can get your facial fitness on while nodding to your inner witch with this hand-carved massage wand. Combine with a serum, moisturizer or facial oil and roll the wand upward along your face to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's a "fitness" routine you'll actually want to stick with.
FaSha Clear Quartz Crystal, $40 at Nordstrom
First we had gua sha, now we have FaSha. Every edge on this tool is meant to be used on your head, face and neck to decrease puffiness, counteract dullness, loosen tension and lift. The smooth straight edge and smooth curved edges mold to your face, the serrated edge targets acupuncture points and the pointed edge helps minimize the appearance of fine lines. The clear quartz crystal minimizes negative background radiations and brings positive vibes.
Rosebud Eye Treatment Set, $65 at Net-a-Porter
Is it a chic set of ear plugs? Nope. It's a rose quartz duo meant for your eyes. They're developed by celebrity facialist Angela Caglia who believes in crystal energy. Roll the mushroom-like tools around your eyes to reduce the appearance of bags and brighten the area sans concealer. Pop the beauty tools in the fridge before use when tired eyes need an extra burst of refreshment.
Beauty Globes, $75 at LaBelle Day Spas & Salons
These wands have a magical appearance thanks to their brilliant blue color and orbs. They're not for casting spells, they're meant to treat puffy eyes and aid in the absorption of beauty treatments. After applying products, glide the rounded ends around your face to increase blood flow and promote elasticity. Pro tip: Keep the wands in the fridge for a refreshing cooling sensation.
Lift + Sculpt Butterfly Stone, $75 at Georgia Louise
This rose quartz butterfly stone would be a welcome addition to any crystal collection. But if you only use it for aesthetic purposes, you're missing out. It was developed by celebrity facialist Georgia Louise and harnesses the power of her lift and sculpt method in one handy tool. Take a cue from her A-list clients and use all sides of the butterfly to drain unwanted toxins from your skin while contouring your face.
Facial Lift, $49 at Bloomingdale's
This is one of the more extra facial tools and looks like a cross between a scalp massager and a niche kitchen gadget. It's strictly meant for the face, though. The unique tool is designed to mimic the technique the celebrity facialist uses in her signature Skinesis massage. Apply the tool to freshly cleansed skin and it will soothe muscle tension and banish puffiness, making skin look radiant without highlighter. It has eight heads and 48 massaging nodules and is the next best thing to a proper spa treatment.
Rose Quartz Gua Sha, $32 at Herbivore Botanicals
Gua sha stones come in many different shapes and sizes. Herbivore Botanicals has square and teardrop versions. Both of them snugly mold to the contours of your face to promote lymphatic drainage and blood flow. With regular use, puffiness and fine lines will be diminished and your glow will be increased.
We have our pick of high-tech beauty tools that can be charged with USB cables and oscillate hundreds of times a minute, but some of the trendiest tools are throwing it back to ancient times. Just look at jade and rose quartz face rollers. Facial rollers have been used since as early as the seventh century in China to promote lymphatic drainage and increase luminosity. And they still hold up in modern, tech-driven, Instagram-obsessed times.
We love facial rollers for the glow they deliver, the way they improve a flat lay and how they feed our crystal obsession.

Whether you want more crystals or another manual device that provides a facial massage in a flash, these facial tools deliver a time-honored approach and soothe complexions and minds. There are no batteries or cords. It’s just the tool, your face, your hands and your favorite skin care product(s).
