The LINNÉ face roller features two notable stones, white jade and black obsidian, each with distinctive skin benefits and metaphysical attributes. Massage with white jade is known to reduce puffiness and the appearance of pores and fine lines, promote lymphatic drainage and the flushing of toxins, increase elasticity and stimulate collagen. The stone is associated with peace, harmony, creativity, prosperity, abundance and luck. White Jade is affiliated with the crown chakra, and using white jade with intention can help promote harmony within yourself, in your relationships and within the world around you.
On the opposite end of the roller you will find black obsidian, a stone associated with the root chakra. It is known to block negative energy and help clear stress, tension and anxiety. In the same vein that it promotes psychic harmony and clarity, black obsidian can also help to balance skin tone, cleanse impurities and minimize pores. To aid purification and release of tension, our black obsidian stone has been carved to produce a textured effect. The studded surface will further help stimulate circulation and oxygenation, and like the smooth jade roller, can be used both on the face and the body.
Though this roller has been custom made for LINNÉ, the origin of the jade roller lies within the ancient Chinese culture, where jade was once known as the stone of heaven.

To use, first apply LINNÉ mist, serum and oil to a clean, dry face, neck and décolletage. Using gentle pressure, start at the jawline and roll down the neck to open lymphatic channels. Massage the face using gentle strokes, starting in the center of the face, moving out and upwards. The stone is naturally cool, but for added sensation, you may store your facial roller in the refrigerator or freezer. Clean after each use with a damp cloth; do not soak in water.
Try it alone or purchase as a kit with our travel REFRESH mist, RENEW serum and your choice of REPAIR or BALANCE face oil in our chic cosmetic bag.
