Microneedling gadget ✨ #Cheriepartner
I have seen so many people use these that I decided to try it out as well. I have been using mine for about two months now to help improve my skin texture but so far I haven’t seen much change. The ideal thing is to not use this too often, once a week is enough because it can be a bit rough on the skin if you try it more often. This size is a 0.25 mm which is pretty small compared to others. I was gifted this one but they range about $20 and above. I’ve seen some that were even 150 dollars but that’s too expensive you can definitely find great ones for cheaper! I would recommend using a small size rather than a thicker needle. Instructions: Step 1: cleanse your face Step 2: Apply gently in small rolls all over face by sections. Step 3: apply your favorite Hyaluronic acid serum or Vitamin C. I recommend to use this tool at night before you go to bed because you won’t be exposing your skin to the sun after using it. Keep in mind that You have to be very gentle and patient. Slowly but surely your results will show.
Beauty gadgets or just..... fancy rocks?
I want to start this post by saying that different products work for different people, and I know there are those who love facial rollers and gua sha. I know skincare is very experiential for a lot of us, so sometimes it’s more about the ritual than actual results, which I totally understand. With that being said, I don’t think either one of these gadgets has made any difference in my skin personally, though I can see the appeal for those who like the aspect of facial massage. I got this rose quartz roller a few years ago when they were becoming really popular. Maybe the reason it hasn’t impressed me is because I got it for about $10 at TJ Maxx... I don’t even know what brand it is. It squeaks when I use it, and the motion caused some black stuff to flake off on my face multiple times, which wasn’t the cutest look. I will say that I do enjoy using this over a sheet mask because it makes it feel like the serum is being pushed/pressed into my skin, which I enjoy. However, that’s the only time I use it. Maybe I’m holding it wrong, but it doesn’t feel like I can apply enough pressure to really get much of a massaging effect. I would give this 2 or 3 stars because I don’t think my routine would really be different without it. This PRIMALLY PURE - Gua Sha Stone is better, in my opinion. I like that it’s just a solid piece of stone so there’s no squeaking or weird flaking stuff. In addition to being pretty, this stone does feel like I can use it more effectively to give myself a proper face massage. It claims to promote lymphatic drainage, relieve muscle tension, clear congestion, and increase blood flow to the skin, and I think all of those are realistic claims. I get pretty horrible sinus congestion a couple times a year, and a facial massage is the best and quickest way I’ve found to relieve the pressure. Any type of massage will increase blood flow to the skin and relieve muscle tension to some extent. I also really enjoy using this on my neck muscles, which are usually very tense. This stone is $32, which is worth it if you’ll use it often enough. It also comes in a nice pouch, which will protect it from breaking during travel. What do you guys think about these—are they just a fad or do you think they’re actually helpful and here to stay? #CheriePartner

I just love when odd looking beauty tools actually work! When I was in Tokyo I came across these suggestively shaped 👀 facial massage rollers from the brand ReFa. I was so intrigued by its claims but boy, ReFa’s esspensive 🤑 I believe they also use microcurrent technology so it makes sense to me. Once I got back from my holiday I started looking for a similar tool but that was more budget-friendly for me, in my search I found this one from Red Earth, one of my favorite Aussie beauty brands! I got mine from Urban Outfitters during one of their beauty sales so timing was perfect. And the roller did not disappoint! I love to use it in the morning when my face is the puffiest to depuff and decongest. I like to apply a mist or light cream before and it also helps absorb the product like a dream. It also helps lift things up, now the lifting up effect lasts for only a couple of hours but it’s still nice 😌 RED EARTH - Perk Up Mini 3D Roller Handle with Care #CheriePartner
