The face roller is the skincare wunderkid of the moment.
And it’s easy to see why. Their big selling point is lymphatic drainage, which takes toxins away from your tissues, and leaves you looking seriously refreshed.
On top of that, depending on the roller you can get, you can use them for contouring, help clear sinuses and improve blood circulation, which can enhance brightness.
To use a face roller, apply a serum, oil or moisturise then roll in an upward motion – and roll horizontally across your brows.
We’ve rounded up where you can get your hands on a roller that delivers on the hype every time:
As Australia’s premium online skincare destination it is little surprise Active Skin has a wide range of face rollers on offer. Our favourites are the rose quartz based rollers. That added self love factor makes for a luxurious feeling every time you use the rollers.
Our top picks from Active Skin: Ecococo Rose Quartz and Jade Face Roller ($38.25) and Napoleon Perdis Limited Edition Serum Collection ($79).
Jade rollers are the most common on the market and the reason for that is jade’s universal benefits. It is a sweet and simple stone that provides nourishment, purifies your energy to remove negativity, and pairs well with other skincare products you’re likely using from serums to moisturisers. If you’re looking for a value buy, Beautopia’s jade roller is a steal at $19.95. We recommend keeping it in the fridge for best results.

Cool therapy has been around for a while and ice rollers are the latest installment. They give you all the benefits without the nasty shock that can come from an ice bath in the morning. This bargain ice roller from Cosmetic Capital can be used to flush fluids out of your face and on top of that, you can also use it post-leg shaving if your skin needs some TLC.
It used to be the case that one face roller suited all. Things have now become more sophisticated and Sephora has a good selection of more targeted rollers for specific parts of your face.
