    • This is a jade roller. It's like a little bit of magic for your skin care routine. The beauty alchemist Jeannie Bourke at Venustus taught me how to use this to massage in moisturiser and serums deep into my skin. The other side has a smaller roller for around the eyes. I keep mine in the fridge to re-create some of the skin tightening, glow getting, depuffing benefits of their stellar cryotherapy facial. Buy a Jade roller. It's the best $33 you'll ever spend. 🙌
