Jade Roller: Tested & Reviewed

September 10, 2019


Erin Schrader

By now, you’ve probably heard about the magical benefits of this little green instrument. If you haven’t, buckle up. Jade Rollers claim to improve blood flow, increases collagen production and skin elasticity [AKA prevent wrinkles], decrease puffiness, and a whole lot of goodness. Like I said, magic. But does this trendy tool actually work? We decided it was time to put it to the test [for 30 days, to be specific] and bring you a real review. 

How We Tested

To measure these claims to their full potential, we decided to call in backup. Claire [LIY Team Beauty Enthusiast] nominated her mom, Amy, to test and review the jade roller for 30 days. The process was simple, really. She took a “before” photo, used the roller with vitamin E oil once a day for 30 days, then compared her results. Here’s what she had to say…

The Results

Before & After

When my daughter, Claire, first asked if I’d be willing to try a jade roller for a LIY post, I said, “A what?” I didn’t even know what a jade roller was. Now, after only five minutes a night for thirty days, I love my jade roller! Although it didn’t make me look like I was twenty again [as I had hoped] it did reduce my creases on my forehead and some of my laugh lines around my mouth and chin. The process was easy.  First, I washed my face with only warm water and my make up eraser cloth. Then, I applied vitamin E oil to my entire face and neck. Next, I set the timer on my phone for five minutes and started rolling. Luckily, the roller came with an instruction diagram to show how to roll. Basically, start at the center of your face and roll out. Super easy. Super quick. Super results.

Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
