You Need This In Your Life – Danielle 2 In 1 Jade Dual Sided Facial Roller

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Danielle 2 In 1 Jade Dual Sided Facial Roller which I found at my local TK Maxx store about 2 weeks ago. I’ve been thinking about buying a facial roller for quite a while. But I wasn’t sure which type, which gem (jade, opal, rose quartz…) and, of course, whether I actually needed one. But I liked the look and the price of this double-ended one, so I bought it.

Alright… what does is say? It promises to help eliminate puffy eyes, to brighten and to firm the skin, to relieve tension, and to promote relaxation and circulation. Wow, this sounds good! So I put it to the test.

Let me start by saying that this facial roller is my new favourite beauty tool. I LOVE IT! And here’s how I use it.

I shower and wash my hair in the shower every morning. Then I start with my actual skin care routine – by using a toner. My new step 2 is now the facial roller. I use the end with the massaging nubs all over my forehead, cheeks, chin, between the nose and lips – all over my face really. Then I use the smooth end around my eyes.

The smooth end of the facial roller is cool. It feels amazing on my face. I can see and feel that it massages my skin and that it helps a lot with circulation – which also makes it easier for the skin to absorb products. 🥰 In addition, it has an unexpected but very welcome exfoliating effect – results were visible very quickly.

Once I’ve given my skin the facial roller treatment, I use a face mist and a serum (the face mist “stretches” the serum, and the serum locks the hydration boost from the face mist into the skin), then my eye cream, then my day cream, leaving a few moments between steps.

I’ve noticed that my skin looks so much better than it usually does. It’s still my skin – but it’s better. Everything – skin tone, firmness, how clear my skin is… I wouldn’t want to miss this facial roller for the world. I already bought another (for travel, and also in case I lose, misplace or break mine). Based on my experience, I’d recommend this facial roller to everyone! If you’re interested, Danielle 2 In 1 Jade Dual Sided Facial Roller is available for £9.99 at TK Maxx.
