A quiet day at the spa is probably on everyone’s relaxation list. But let’s be…
The amount of skincare tools and gadgets available on the market can be overwhelming. And let’s be honest–most of them don’t live up to the hype. That’s where my hands-on research as an esthetician can help; I experiment so you don’t have to! I’ve rounded up my favorite tried-and-true skincare tools below.
Jade Roller // This is a tool for every face. The cool jade depuffs and tightens skin, while the gentle massage action of rolling promotes lymphatic drainage of toxins. After applying a serum, gently roll up and outward on the cheeks, forehead and chin. Use the smaller side gently under the eyes and down the sides of the nose.

GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool // Investigation of the GloPRO was a top priority for me last year after I read a ton of great reviews. Similar to a micro-needler or derma-roller, the GloPRO uses patented technology that provides visible results without the discomfort of a typical roller. I can attest to its effectiveness and painlessness. The GloPRO can be used daily, promoting the skin to regenerate and allowing better penetration of products. This is a desert island pick for me.
Ice Roller // Ideal for calming irritated skin, alleviating sunburns, or easing migraines, this ice roller is legit! It should be kept in the freezer; use it to tighten pores, stimulate collagen and reduce swelling. This roller ideally is used in the morning before starting your skincare routine, and can be used at the onset of headaches too.
NuFace Facial Toning Device // Micro-currents have been researched and studied in the skincare world for decades. These toning devices aren’t going anywhere because of their success rates. The micro-currents these tools deliver have anti-aging benefits, stimulating elastin and collagen. The NuFace toning device is best utilized daily and can take about 3-5 minutes to use. This particular one is a favorite because of its attachment choices.
