Jade Rollers

Why I Love It –  We all have crazy busy schedules. We wake up with dark circles and puffy eyes. While many have sensitive skin and do not like the chemicals a lot of products carry, the Jade Roller has become one of my new obsessions.

  •  DUAL SIDES ROLLER: The big roller is ideal for neck, chin, cheeks, and forehead while the smaller is perfect for around the eyes, nose, and lips.
  • BENEFITS: Anti-Aging, Anti-Wrinkles line, Reduce dark under eyes, Better skin and health through natural Jade stones without any chemicals or irritants.

How to Use It – Most mornings and every night, I put a little lotion on my face and pull the Jade Roller out of the fridge. Yep, I keep my roller nice and cool. This helps with inflammation and puffiness. I gently roll this all over my face, neck, and even over my eyes, nose and lips. I usually ‘roll my face’ for about 20 minutes while winding down at night. It is extremely soothing and I know I am only helping my skin before getting 8 hours of sleep (or so).

Where to Buy It –I put my favorite one on our Amazon page of course! It’s legit $7 – you can’t beat beauty for that price!

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser


Why I Love It – Amazonian White Clay! This clay is known to remove bacteria, toxins, excess oil and dead cells that can clog skin and result in enlarged pores. It literally makes this cleanser feel so creamy and thick and fabulous on your skin – never have I loved a scrubby cleanser so much. Kiehl’s knocks it out of the park once again.

And the scrubby part I mention? It’s more of a sand/bead type feel. You’re not ripping your skin or causing any premature aging and fine lines like some of those other exfoliants. A note to all you who regularly use an exfoliant (which, ahem, should be everyone) never ever use abrasive physical exfoliators with harsh grains, sugar, or salt, and facial brushes as much as possible. If you’re someone with frequent breakouts, try using a chemical exfoliator to fight oil and acne from a deeper level in the skin like a salicylic, lactic, and glycolic.

So, to recap, this cleanser:

  • Softens skin and reduces enlarged pores
  • Formulated with Amazonian White Clay and Diatomaceous Earth particles to gently remove oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores

How To Use It – Apply a generous amount to damp skin, gently massage into face and neck in upward and outward circular motion. Remove thoroughly with lukewarm water. Safe for use daily; morning and/or night.

Where To Buy It – Our Amazon list of course! Honestly, it’s the best value and you can find the masque and all sorts of other Amazonian White Clay goodies there. Or, of course, the Kiehl’s website will always have your back.
