One of my most asked questions on Instagram is, “Does this thing really work?” in reference to a beauty tool I show myself using whilst making a duck face through a snapchat filter. (it’s fine).
But the answer to that question is always YES. Yes, the products I show do really work!
(You’d think this would be obvious since I spend precious hours using them but I get it, we all get curious)
I love trying new things and I love taking care of my skin so beauty tools were the obvious next trend I saw myself falling into.
Of course not all trends are worth the hype or splurge but I believe beauty tools are just an advancement in our skincare routines that is finally accessible to us. Most beauty tools have been created to replicate some of the signature benefits you receive from getting an in spa treatment, at home. For instance, facial massaging is a huge part of going in and having someone else take care of your skin. But with a simple tool, these luxury treatments can be done at home on your own.
I love incorporating my beauty tools into my morning and night time routines to give my skin that extra tender love and care. You quite literally only get one skin to live in! So take care of it! Trust me you’ll regret it later. OMG I sound like a mom.

- Nurse Jamie’s UpLift! This magic wand is made with 24 massaging black tourmaline stones! You massage each area of your face that needs uplifting for 30-45 seconds (I do it after my skincare routine to really massage the product in). It instantly reenergizes your skin and with consistent use tightens too!
- Jade & Rose Quartz Rollers! Rolling your face improves the tightness of your skin and helps depuff everywhere you roll! It promotes lymphatic drainage (something I want to learn more about) and improves elasticity of the skin! I like to keep my rollers in the freezer for extra benefits of circulation, anti inflammation, and drainage!
