In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that jade carries a healing energy that can help balance your own inner energies, relax the nervous system, and bring about a sense of harmony and balance. In terms of functionality, while all facial rollers do help with reducing puffiness and encouraging lymphatic function, jade rollers will normally have a little more resistance on the skin as it is not as smooth as other crystals, like rose quartz or amethyst. Because of this, many users will often report that they find jade rollers to have more impact on contouring and/or lifting the skin.
Ancient Egyptians believed that Rose Quartz crystals had anti-ageing properties. It is thought that Goddess Isis would gather rose quartz crystals by the Nile River and use them to keep her skin clear and wrinkle-free. Rose Quartz is also known as the love stone, and is valued for its vibrations of unconditional love, self-care, joy, healing, and anti-inflammatory properties. So if you struggle with sensitive, easily reactive skin, or have inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea, the cooling rose quartz facial roller is perfect for you.
We believe that you can’t go wrong with either one of these gemstones, as both rollers can help depuff, encourage lymphatic drainage, and be used with serums, sheet masks, facial oils, and moisturisers to help boost their absorption.
In a nutshell, Jade is a stone known for peace, wisdom and balance whereas rose quartz is a crystal known for enhancing anything love-related. Other than the colour difference, Jade's molecular structure also disperses heat easier than rose quartz crystal, so you can expect your rose quartz roller to stay cooler for a little longer, while Jade is better if you’re looking for something that can also help with contouring your skin.
