Gua Sha vs Facial Roller

When it comes to skincare and wellness, many have a routine that works for them. However, every so often something may come along and entice us into switch up our all-too-familiar ritual. Despite having been originally used by Chinese elites in traditional medicine for centuries, Gua Sha and Facial Rollers have both harnessed their fair share of attention the past few years, and for many have become skincare essentials that show powerful results.

Both Gua Sha and Facial rollers present undeniable benefits to the skin, which is why interest in these additions has skyrocketed. Both of these massagers improve and increase blood circulation, soothe the skin, improve the skin’s function and promote lymphatic drainage. Though, the two tools do differ with their benefits, and how and when to use them.


Facial Rollers are gentle on the skin, while being easy and convenient to use. When used correctly, skin can appear calmer, with inflammation and puffiness being decreased. Pair with a luxurious oil, such as Platinum Firming Face Oil, to ensure a smooth rolling motion and ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation. Rollers also aid in helping skincare products penetrate further and more effectively into the skin, so when paired with our highly active products, this massage tool truly has potential to alleviate skin concerns.

Gua Sha

On the other hand, Gua Sha is best for sculpting and contouring the face, with a design intended to focus on different angles of the face and release muscle tension. Whist this facial massage tool takes some more time and practice than its simple roller counterpart, the results are more visible, leaving skin contoured and defined. We recommend pairing a Gua Sha treatment with AMRA Gold Rejuvenating Face Oil. With actives such as a 4-in-1 anti-glycation formulation to promote collagen and elastin for firmed skin, and Vitamin C for healthier and brighter skin, using these synergistically will result in a brighter, defined complexion.

We have encased our collection of Facial Rollers and Gua Sha in 24kt gold, known for its unwavering anti-inflammatory benefits. Gold encapsulates the height of skincare, providing anti-aging properties, combatting inflammation and defending the skins barrier against environmental pollution and free radicals.
