Face rollers and ice rollers are the coolest beauty tools in the market right now. While face rollers have been around for a while, ice rollers are having a moment in 2020. From afar, it's easy to assume that both beauty tools do the same job--depuffing and cooling tired skin. However, there's more to them than meets the eye.
Unique in their own way, we're going to first learn about them as beauty tools before we get to their key differences. Let's roll!
A face roller is an aesthetic beauty tool that's either made from jade, rose quartz, obsidian, amethyst and other crystals. Designed to gently massage the skin, the face roller helps to detox your lymphatic system, improve bloody circulation and reduce puffiness. Due to its rolling ability, the face roller also helps to push skincare products into the skin, resulting in better product absorption. Available on multiple websites and in different price ranges, it's important to learn how to distinguish between a real and fake face roller.
Best Time To Use: Night
Pro tip: Put on a sheet mask and using a chilled face roller, roll over it for 2-5 minutes. This technique helps to massage and push the sheet mask's ingredients into the skin.
An ice roller is a handheld beauty tool that comes with a stainless steel head or a gel one encased in plastic. While it contributes to the firmness of the skin, it also reduces puffiness and inflammation (sunburn or facial hair removal) While it helps to boost blood circulation, it also makes your skin feel fresh and you, more awake! Think of it as an ice-pack for your face.
Best Time To Use: Morning

Bottom line is--neither beauty tool is better than the other. They are both unique and wonderful in their own way. Give both a shot, we say!
