The best jade rollers you can buy
- Jade rollers have gotten popular recently, but these devices have been used in China for centuries and are known for their cooling, anti-inflammatory benefits.
- Most jade rollers are double-sided with a large stone on one end to be used around cheeks and jaws, and a smaller piece on the other end for eyes. Other rollers might just be one-sided.
- The Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller is our top pick because it's the total package - double-ended, luxe packaging, and reasonably priced.
Jade rollers have reached peak saturation - they're on your Instagram feed, touted by experts as a miraculous, fix-everything solution. But they're far from being just a fad - jade rollers have been popular in China for centuries, long before social media influencers existed to plug them in sponsored blog posts.
While no skin-care gadget can answer all your skin concerns, massaging your face with a jade roller can have numerous benefits. Jade rollers are said to help reduce inflammation, help skin-care products soak into the skin better, cut down on puffiness, and loosen tight spots that form from repetitive motion, like furrowing that brow as you squint at your phone). Most are double-sided, with a smaller stone for harder-to-reach spots and a wider one for massaging the cheeks, jawline, and neck.
But no guide to buying jade rollers would be complete without a little gemology lesson in the stones first. There are only two types of true jade - nephrite and jadeite. Most rollers marketed as "jade" are made from Xiuyan (or Xiyuan) jade, which is actually a type of serpentine crystal. Its composition is fundamentally different from nephrite and jadeite, but it can have different shades of green that make it look like jade. It can't accurately be categorized as jade but historically and culturally, Chinese people include Xiuyan jade under the larger "jade" umbrella. Nephrite and jadeite are also extremely valuable, expensive, and belong in museums, so if we're being honest, there's no way the real deal would be incorporated into skin-care tools that cost $60.But despite these "jade" rollers not being made out of made of nephrite and jadeite, the rollers still work exactly the same way. They'll still have the same depuffing and relaxing benefits if you use them regularly with an oil or serum, and your skin will still feel fresh and rejuvenated.
