Despite the fact that jade rollers are all the rage right now, this trend is anything but new. They’ve been used for centuries in Chinese medicine and have a proven track record of delivering legit benefits. (For the rare few who may not be familiar, a jade roller is a small, handheld tool that basically looks like a paint roller and is made of smoothed-out stone.)
For starters, it’s an effective method of self-massage, helping to boost circulation and flush out toxins simultaneously, combating puffiness and increasing that always-coveted radiance. Jade also tends to feel consistently cool to the touch, making the rolling experience soothing and refreshing. Then there are the energetic benefits of the stone itself; jade is known for promoting prosperity, abundance, and wisdom. Sure, it may sound a little too ‘woo-hoo’ for some, but hey, it can’t hurt.
So get to rolling with the best jade rollers out there.
Just a helpful heads up that not all of the jade rollers you may find are actually made of real jade. You’ll still get the same aesthetic benefits, but if you’re looking to reap the stone’s energetic effects make sure the one you pick is legit. This one fits the bill, made of 100% Xiuyan jade mined from China. The price is great and it comes with a gua sha tool as well, plus a very helpful video and e-book tutorial that’s great for first-time rollers.
Newbies and pro rollers alike will appreciate the ease and efficacy of this double-sided tool. The larger of the two ends is great for rolling along areas such as your jawline and neck; use the smaller one to combat puffiness under your eyes or minimize the look of pores around your nose (yes, a jade roller can do that, too).
Byrdie’s Editorial Director Faith Xue vouches for this pick, which recently got an upgrade. It now boasts even more durable hardware, plus higher quality and ethically-mined stones. Also dual-sided, it’s choice for using on any and every spot on your face.
Keep this jade roller in the freezer to make it feel extra cooling and refreshing.
While this speckled beauty may not look like all the other green rollers out there, it is in fact still jade, a pure Xiyan jade that’s also known as jasper dalmatian stone. It rolls beautifully and looks oh-so-chic, not to mention pairs perfectly with this artisanal brand’s handcrafted face oils.
A great affordable option for those looking to get into jade rolling without breaking the bank, this roller is not only dual-sided but also comes with a separate under eye tool. With a (sustainable) bamboo handle and jade tip, it’s choice for decreasing swollen bags under your eyes.
We love that this kit comes with a dual-sided jade roller plus a jade gua sha tool. (Think of gua sha as jade rolling, amped up. It reaps similarly awesome benefits, just requires a bit more of a precise skill and technique.) Use the tools separately, or back to back, for smoother, more radiant, tighter-looking skin.
Yet another dual-sided option, this one has the distinction of having two rollers that are the same size, just different textures. One is smooth and one has studs; the latter makes for a slightly more of a massaging or kneading effect and even slightly exfoliates. It’s a pairing that any face rolling aficionado is sure to appreciate.
Breaking news, jade rolling isn’t just for your face. It can have equally great benefits for the skin below your chin, and this extra-large tool is specifically made for jade rolling your bod. The 7-inch by 3.25-inch size has a textured head to increase stimulation, while also boosting blood flow and helping to flush toxins out of your muscles.
Pair it with a body oil post-shower and you’ll be hooked.
Forget hand cream and lip balm, we’d like to push for jade rollers to become the new purse beauty essential. It’s easy to keep this itty-bitty one on-hand at all times, ready to use whenever your skin is in need of a little pick-me-up. Also nice: It comes with a reusable storage box.
You can definitely use a jade roller on bare skin, but pairing it with an oil or serum not only helps it glide better, but it can also help improve the absorption of the product. (Talk about a win-win.) Here, you get everything you need, an excellent jade roller plus an argan oil-based treatment that comes in a convenient roll-on form.
Think of this a jade roller meets eye cream hybrid, AKA your dark circles’ worst nightmare. The lightweight serum is infused with antioxidants and white snow mushroom, an ingredient that hydrates and plumps skin. All that good stuff gets delivered via a rollerball tip made of pure jade, further helping to combat puffiness and shadows, and making you look bright-eyed faster than your morning cup of coffee.
We’re especially partial to the sizes on this dual-ended pick, which is both a bit larger and a bit smaller than we’ve seen on many other similar options. It also comes with a step-by-step instruction guide for following the brand’s signature rolling technique to help you maximize your rolling results.
