The Body Shop Facial Massager is an excellent first-buy option if you’ve never used a tool like this before, and for those who are well versed in the art of facial massage you can invest a little more money into the Oils of Life Twin Ball Facial Massager, and if you’re looking to target your eyes specifically the Precision Eye Massager is the product for you.
Benefits of a using a facial massager
Relieves tension: Are you tensing up your face without knowing it? Make sure you relieve the tension in these muscles because they’re more likely to harbour wrinkles.
Always massage in an upward motion, you want to work against gravity so that everything goes up.
It’s a natural facelift: When you regularly massage the facial muscles you're stimulating the amount of oxygen in the area, which works to naturally provide anti-ageing benefits. The stimulation of blood flow also increases collagen, which helps to give the skin a naturally plumper look.
Helps products absorb better
You’ll look younger: Using your facial massager regularly is only going to benefit the skin in the long run, and help you look younger.
The Body Shop Facial Massager
The Facial Massager from The Body Shop is a spiked rubber roller with a wooden handle, and it’s well made, with a design that’s comfortable to use and sits right in your hand.
The rubber spikes are quite firm, so don’t assert too much pressure at first, you want to get your skin used to using the massager and then build up from there. Thankfully it doesn’t drag or pull at the skin, but just rolls with ease.
It’s perfect for those who suffer from cystic lumps and bumps under the jawline, as well as those who want to avoid a sagging jawline at all cost.
You can use the facial massager on bare skin, but it can also be used on top of your serums, oils and moisturisers to help work the products into the skin.
Use it working away from the centre of the face, and roll upwards instead of downwards, you want to work against gravity.
If the spikes on The Body Shop Facial Massager seem a little daunting, this Oils of Life Twin Ball Facial Massager might be a better product.
Simply move this massager across your face and the twin-balls will start to move and lessen the look of puffiness in the skin, as well encourage circulation too which helps to boost your natural radiance. See the massage that facialist Vanda Serrador created below that's designed to help boost radiance in the skin with the use of this twin-ball massager.
The Precision Eye Massager from The Body Shop has been carefully designed with two ends, a spatula on one end to easily apply eye cream and then the rollerball the other end to help massage it in.
Although we wouldn’t say this was an essential product, it’s definitely worth the treat, especially if you’re concerned with how your eyes look.
The rollerball design works in multiple ways to benefit the skin around the eye, improving circulation, reducing the look of eye bags and tone the skin to reduce the look of fatigue.
The cool metal design is perfect for those who experience puffiness too, as it refreshes the eye area whilst you use it. Plus it gives the perfect amount of pressure for the delicate eye area.
If you’re looking to get more from your eye cream and gels, then the Precision Eye Massager could be just the thing you need.
