Hello lovelies!

For today’s post, I thought it’d be fun to share something a little different. With life being full on lately, fitting in some me time has gone up a few notches in importance.

Lately I’ve been enjoying the slow moments. Dimming the lights, putting on loose, comfy clothing, lighting a candle, throwing my hair into a messy bun. I’ve even found the time and patience for face masks and shimmering scrubs! You know you’re doing something right when you can say “Ah! now this.. this is the life!”

Enjoy xx

Usually I’m not one to go for anything trend based, even with skincare and makeup products where what you see the most of is the best. I remember last year, when so many people were flocking to buy the Mario Badescu facial mists.. I never did try that and still think it was oversold!

What I cannot speak highly enough of though is the facial rollers. As it turns out, they are no new invention, dating back to ancient times when they were used in beauty rituals. You’ll most commonly find them with Jade and rose quartz stones. These crystals are thought to have unique healing and vibrational properties which can energise, balance and restore the mind and body.

Rose Quartz is linked to the heart chakra and is commonly referred to as the love stone. It promotes unconditional love and peace whilst warding off negativity and easing tension. These factors can and do contribute towards premature ageing and overall skin damage.

Facial rollers are said to have a multitude of benefits, even for your health- they can sculpt, tone, firm skin and enhance tone, give you a healthy glow, detoxify and minimise lines. In my case, I found it completely changed my face shape to be less round.

I’d heard about facial rollers through a few instagram beauty bloggers, but honestly just purchased mine on a whim. There was this gorgeous little florist and gift shop in a small town I’d stopped over in. We’d headed to Thirroul, a northern seaside suburb of Wollongong. It was early morning, only about eight am. My last day of being on holidays before we headed home. We’d just eaten breakfast at a cafe across the road- chai lattes, delicious buttery pastries and gourmet rolls. After we ate and purchased a few little things, we came across an antique shop. There wasn’t anything too interesting there, but I did come across two sleeping puppies! The cutest thing, I tell you.

Anyhow, now that I’ve established a sort of skincare routine, I use my rose quartz roller pretty much on the daily. It was $50, so a bit on the pricier side, but I believe mindful purchases are okay. Being a minimalist and overall advocate for living more with less, I believe that material possessions are at times unnecessary, but only if they fail to serve a function. If something contributes positively to your wellbeing and happiness or serves as a good investment, I’m all for that!

One of my biggest tips would be to keep your quartz roller in the fridge. This keeps it nice and cool and definitely improves the massage! I use it in the mornings to help me wake up, focusing particularly on the under eyes. Apparently it’s very possible to clear both dark circles and bagginess! Now that’d be a dream.

Facial rollers are easy to use, but it’s important to remember that you’ll want to use outward and upward strokes. You can choose to use the roller with or without other products, but for a deeper cleanse I’ll apply a serum or scrub.

Well, there you have it! I’d just like to take a moment to say that this post is in no way affiliated with Salt by Hendrix. It isn’t sponsored and I didn’t receive free product or commission. As always, I strive for transparency and simply wanted to share about a product I love and find useful. I hope you will too!

    1. Thank you so much Jasmin! You’re really kind (:

      I’d say be intentional about what you keep and throw away. I used to be nothing short of a hoarder. I had so many things and so much clutter that I could’ve hidden and not been found!

      I first started with clothes but then slowly moved onto other things in my room that needed culling. Stationery, books- all the little bits and pieces you end up accumulating really! I got to work and was really ruthless. By the end of the night I had many rubbish bags full of stuff. Of course, I didn’t become a minimalist overnight, lol. It’s a process, but a highly rewarding one. I’ve since culled a few times again and have now reached a point where I’m completely happy with what I’ve got. I do however have a few containers of clothes under my bed.. they’ve all been listed on depop and I’m just waiting to see if they’ll sell!

      Being a minimalist means there are no distractions. It’s a clean slate. I’ve been able to figure out more about myself through this process of getting rid of the unnecessary.

      All the best x

  1. I’ve actually being eyeing one of these up for a while now and it’s probably time I invest haha. The rose quartz ones are so beautifully! Love how this is to live minimalistically. Also good idea of keeping it in the fridge! xx
