Frequently Asked Questions
What is a mineral roller?
The mineral facial roller is a Chinese skincare tool that has been used for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, this facial massager was built to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin.
What are the benefits?
Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, mineral rolling has a multitude of benefits.
- Improves blood circulation
- Reduces puffiness and inflammation of skin
- Promotes lymphatic drainage
- Relieves facial and jaw tension
How do you use a mineral roller?
- Start in the middle of the face and roll outwards across the cheeks.
- Move to the eyebrows and roll upwards across the forehead.
- Move below the lower lip and roll downward across the chin.
Use the smaller end for more delicate areas and harder to reach places, use the larger end for broad surfaces.
How often should you use a mineral roller?
We recommend mineral rolling twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening after washing your face. However, you can use the jade roller as many times as you want, whenever your face needs a moment of soothing calmness.
Mineral rollers can be used in harmony with oils and serums for added penetration and absorption into the skin.
How do you clean a mineral roller and where do you store it?
After each use, a soft microfiber cloth can be used to wipe the mineral roller clean.
For a deeper cleanse, dip the cloth into a bowl of soapy water (water + a cleanser) before wiping the mineral roller.
You can dry the mineral roller using another dry cloth or let it air dry. If you find that your mineral roller is squeaky after a wash, add a few drops of oil to the sides of the roller head.
Our Jin® cotton bag is the perfect compartment for your mineral roller to be housed in. Make sure the mineral roller is completely dry before storage.
For an added cooling effect, the mineral roller can be kept in the fridge.
What is the difference between the Jade Roller and the Rose Quartz Facial Roller?
Both have the soothing benefits that facial rolling provides. In terms of properties, jade retains its coolness for long periods of time and is balancing for both mind and body. Rose quartz has calming properties and aids in meditation and reflection. In terms of differences, the Rose Quartz Facial Roller is more lightweight than the Jade Roller but both are great to have in your beauty cabinet.
