These Are the Pros and Cons of Using Jade Vs. Rose Quartz in Beauty Tools

You need to buy the entire Container Store to have enough space for all of the beauty tools and gadgets on the beauty scene.

And two things that have really stood out? Rose quartz and jade. These gorgeous, light pink and green stones, respectively, have so many beauty benefits, so how do you know which one to choose?

Below are the pros and the cons of each to help make your decision easier.

Jade

Pros

Smoothes Fine Lines

Massaging your skin with jade helps boost circulation, and brings blood to the surface which helps plump and smooth fine lines.

Helps Under-Eye Bags

The cooling, calming pressure of jade when rolled underneath the eyes is magic for getting rid of under-eye bags and puffiness.

Easy to Clean

Jade is super smooth, which makes it easy to clean, and it's not susceptible to damage with super hot or cold temperatures.

Eco-Friendly

Jade is a naturally occurring material and incredibly durable, so it could last a lifetime if taken care of properly!

It's Natural Infrared

Jade is a natural transmitter of far infrared rays. These rays transmit low levels of heat which allows jade to warm up the skin and boost microcirculation.

Cons

Doesn't Help Deep Wrinkles

Unfortunately, jade can't help you with any deep wrinkles and it doesn't have any strong anti-aging properties.

You Have to Be Consistent

In order to see improvements in facial sculpting or decongesting, you have to be consistent and do it several times a week. It's definitely not an instant fix.

They Can Harbor Bacteria

Because jade is a porous stone, it can harbor bacteria if not cleaned thoroughly by boiling or wiping with alcohol.

You Could Be Using a Fake

Even though it's eco-friendly, because of it's popularity, there are lots of counterfeits out there.

Rose Quartz

Pros

Helps With Anti-Inflammatory Skin Issues

If you have sensitive skin, a rose quartz roller is great. It has high anti-inflammatory properties that can help with skin issues like rosacea.

Helps With Anti-Aging

Rose quartz is better known for its wrinkle-reducing benefits than jade, and its natural properties can help soften the skin.

It's Filled With Minerals

Rose quartz is packed with minerals including silicium, magnesium, iron, sodium and oxygen, which is beneficial to skin.

It's Naturally Cool

Rose quartz stays cool, whereas jade is adaptive in nature and tends to warm with skin contact. The cool temperature of rose quartz helps calm redness and irritation, and it reduces puffiness.

Cons

You Have to Be Consistent

In order to see improvements in facial sculpting or decongesting, you have to be consistent and do it several times a week. It's definitely not an instant fix.
