There is nothing better than that post-facial glow. Let’s bring it home! Although many of the following massage tools, like Gua Shas and Jade Rollers, are not new, our life through Covid-19 definitely forced us to invest in our wellness and elevate our at-home self care routine. We learned that we don’t have to be a professional to own and (properly) use tools on our face to see actual results. Below are a selection of my favorite facial massage tools I’ve learned to use over the years that are safe for all skin types, along with video links on how to properly use them for best results.
Herbivore Jade Face Roller
Jade Rollers are a great introduction tool when dipping your toes in the self-facial massage world! It is extremely easy to use, not to mention relaxing and de-stressing. It has been a beauty ritual dating back to 7th century China. Jade stone is known to bring peace and harmony, believed to attract luck and opportunity, and help reduce stress.

Lanshin Gua Sha Face Tool
If you’re on TikTok, you’ve witnessed this tool make its comeback as a hot trend. Gua sha facial massages are an ancient beauty ritual known to promote blood circulation, increase lymph drainage, release muscular tension, and awaken the skin from the inside out. When practiced correctly and regularly, you can experience powerful contouring and sculpting results. Click here to watch an amazing video tutorial on all things gua sha! Make sure to apply a serum or cream before sculpting with the gua sha! It’s never a good idea to use any facial massaging tool on dry skin
Skin Gym Face Sculptor
Skin Gym creates a variety of facial massage tools. Skin Gym Face Sculptor is my all time favorite of their products! The Face Sculptor fits in the natural contours of the face to massage, lift, and rejuvenate the skin. This tool creates a deep kneading action that mimics the effect of a professional massage. I love sticking mine in the fridge to get extra cool before using this tool daily. Click here for a video tutorial!
Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar
Level up your skin game with this vibrating Gold Sculpting Bar by Jillian Dempsey. Pricey for a reason, this luxe 24K gold-plated vibrating bar was sourced exclusively from Japan. One “go” with this guy and you’ll be hooked. The sculpting, contouring facial massage relaxes facial muscles at 6000 vibrations per minute. Watch Jillian Dempsey explain how to use this tool here!
Nurse Jamie UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller
The Nurse Jamie UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller has a unique hexagon shape that contains 24 massaging stones to temporarily energize, enhance and uplift your facial skin. It assists in penetrating products deeper, while smoothing and de-puffing the skin. This is a great beauty tool to assist in lymphatic drainage. Watch this video tutorial by Nurse Jamie!
