We’ve left no stone unturned in our quest to find out which stone is best for facial rolling!


Gosh, navigating the world of at-home face rollers can get tough, especially when deciding between a jade roller or a rose quartz roller. Trust us – both these gadgets are a cut above the rest.

They help depuff, encourage lymphatic drainage, fight wrinkles, and give fine lines a (good) run for their money. They both carry healing energy. And they both look really, really pretty.


Honestly, we’re obsessed with both. But in the end, it’s about personal preference. Let’s throw the first stone: jade roller vs rose quartz roller – here we go…


By now you have probably heard of facial rolling, if not, read more on the jade roller, rose quartz rollers, and amethyst roller. Coupled with gua sha, face rollers are one of the best ways to elevate your beauty routine in the comfort of your own home.

Breaking down the differences between jade and rose quartz

Rollback a few centuries and you’ll find jade and rose quartz have existed as far back as 2000 BC.

It’s believed Cleopatra bathed with pieces of jade for its healing properties, while the Goddesses gathered rose quartz crystals by the Nile River and used them to keep her wrinkle-free.

While times have certainly changed (one wouldn’t dare to scout the croc-infested Nile nowadays for crystals), some things have remained the same. Jade and rose quartz are still as popular as ever.


What are the healing benefits of jade & rose quartz?

Sure, there is the beauty of the stones, which speaks for itself, but then there is also the crystals’ composition. Before investing in a face roller, think about what energy you want to embrace.

A protective stone, Jade is said to bless whatever it touches, bringing harmony, soothing the mind, and helping release negative thoughts. Rose quartz, on the other hand, is known as the universal stone of love, opening your heart, and increasing your compassion towards others and yourself.

So is your skin in need of balance, or a little lovin’? Or perhaps both?


In detail, jade…

  • Promotes inner peace and a sense of calmness
  • Balances energy and enhances positivity
  • Works to stabilize inner emotions
  • Promotes clear thoughts, ideas, feelings, and insights


By comparison, rose quartz…

  • Symbolizes unconditional love
  • Supports connection with others and with yourself
  • Helps you to forgive and restores trust
  • Inspires the love of beauty in oneself and others

why use rose quartz instead of jade roller

Which facial roller is best?

Well, that depends on your skin type/condition. Jade rollers have a little more resistance on the skin because jade is not as smooth as the glass-like feel of rose quartz. Because of this, jade rollers tend to have more impact on contouring and/or lifting the skin, while aesthetician Gina Pulisciano tells Healthline that rose quartz is better for calming the skin and reducing redness.

Jade, however, is a softer stone, and more prone to wear and tear, than rose quartz. While both crystals are cooling on the skin, Jade tends to warm quite quickly when it comes in contact with the skin, while rose quartz holds coolness for much longer, making it the perfect remedy for tired skin and eyes.


The good news is that both stones are non-porous, so they won’t absorb any products you apply to your skin, making them hygienic and easy to clean.  


While seemingly simple, face rollers can be used in different ways. For more on this, take a look at some tricks of the trade by skincare expert Abigail James.
