1. Lu Ming Tang Ruyi Face Massager, $35
Made of rose quartz, which is said to have emotional healing properties, this face massager helps relax your facial muscles. Pop it into the refrigerator for five minutes before gliding the broad side of the spatula-like head across your cheeks and forehead from the centre of the face outwards, to gently ease away tension and help diminish the appearance of fine lines.
You can apply a serum to reduce friction and any tugging of your skin if you find that the tool is not gliding as smoothly as you would like it to. Use the narrow end of the massager which has a spherical shape to massage in your eye cream to help de-puff your under-eye area. At $35, from Lu Ming Tang at Level 1, Tang Plaza Beauty Hall.
2. Jade Roller Beauty Jade Roller Spa, $68
The bigger end of this roller helps relieve tension and tone the cheekbones. It is made of jade stone, which helps reduce inflammation and puffiness. The massaging action, like the rest of the massagers on this list, also helps boost cellular turnover for smoother and younger-looking skin, and diminished fine lines.
The smaller end helps massage areas such as under the eyes and the sides of the nose, that are harder for the bigger end to manoeuvre over. At $68, from Sephora.
3. Refa Rhythm Facial Roller
If you find that your facial expressions are stiffening (whether due to ageing, stress or excessive chewing), this is the facial massager for you. Fifty protruding knobs evenly distributed across the two spherical moving parts of the roller soothe muscle fatigue and diminish facial tension while boosting blood circulation and lymphatic drainage – this will help ease water retention in your face, to make you look less puffy.
A solar panel installed on the massager generates a mild microcurrent, which supposedly promotes collagen production, for firmer, younger-looking skin. This massager is also waterproof, so you can use it in the shower – just take note that the wood panelling might discolour if you do so. At $420, from Sephora and Refa stores.
4. Osim uGem 2
Lightweight and compact, this facial massager helps you achieve that coveted V-shaped visage with micro massage vibrations at 6,000 pulses per minute. This works to replace traditional manual massage methods to reduce puffiness and boost blood circulation. At $149, from Osim stores. Watch our tried and tested video here!
5. Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light++ w

7. Nurse Jamie Instant Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller
Set with 24 tourmaline quartz stones (which is said to help balance yin and yang energies), this wand-like hexagonal-shaped massaging tool is designed to mimic facial massaging techniques to stimulate blood circulation.
The effect: To uplift and improve overall complexion. Because of the unique rhythmic action that the wand creates, it is recommended that you massage each area for 30-45 seconds. Hollywood celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Emily Ratajkowski and Lea Michele are fans of this massager (just take a look at its Instagram account to see for yourself). About $97.10, from Net-a-Porter.

9. Herbivore Botanicals Jade Facial Roller
Many of the face rollers you see on the market are designed like this one from Herbivore Botanicals, but this is one of the more reasonably priced one. Its rolling parts have smaller girth compared to the Jade Beauty Roller and Mount Lai ones on this list, so it’s better for people who prefer less chunky rollers.
This is made from jade, and again, helps boost circulation and lymphatic drainage for more youthful-looking skin. Use the bigger end on wider areas such as your cheeks and forehead, and the smaller end on the under-eye area. At $44, from Sephora.
10. Angela Caglia Rosebud Eye Treatment Set
If you think this looks like something lifted straight off a facialist’s tool set, you’re not exactly wrong. The creator of this beauty brand is popular US-based facialist Angela Caglia, who counts celebrities such as supermodel Helena Christensen and actress-singer Minnie Driver among her list of clients.
These rose quartz eye massaging bud-like tools help depuff and brighten the delicate skin around the eyes. Keep these in the fridge to maximise the de-stressing effect, and prep skin with your favourite eye cream before gliding the tools across your skin. About $88, from Net-a-Porter.

11. Sarah Chapman Skinesis Facialift

12. Hayo’U Rose Quartz Beauty Restorer
Shaped like a guasha tool, this rose quartz is designed to hug your facial contours. You can stash it in the fridge before use to help reduce puffiness, or warm it up between your palms to help improve the absorption of skincare into your skin. Because this is not a roller like many others on this list, we suggest you use it with a facial oil or luxurious face cream to prevent tugging on skin. About $72, from Net-a-Porter
13. Laneige Time Freeze Face-Fit Roller
Unique in its asymmetrical design, Laneige’s Time Freeze Face-fit roller is specially crafted to better fit the contours of the face while lifting the skin at the same time. At $80, from Sephora.
