Sarah Chapman Face Roller
Having read reviews of the Sarah Chapman Face roller I decided to buy it and try it out. It’s a strange looking facial massager with lots of nodules, 48 to be exact, which you roll over you face to mimic facial massage similar you what you would expect when having a professional facial. You can use it with your regular cleansers or oils or, use it on dry skin.
The Facialift claims to help brighten, lift, drain toxins and reduce puffiness as well as releasing tension in the jaw, aiding lymphatic drainage to dramatically lift and sculpt.
You use the roller by placing it on your chin at a right angle to your body and gently roll it back and forth along your jawline, don’t be tempted to roll up, you roll along the jawline.
Then move up slightly and repeat the process rolling back and forth but don’t go close to the eye socket as that is a delicate area.
Then place the tool at the front of your neck and roll it back and forth, again, at a right angle to your body. Finally you can switch the angle so you’re holding the roller under your chin and roll it upwards.This helps relieve any jaw tension you may have.
Once you’re done rolling, turn the tool around and use the small flat paddle at the handle end to gently tap over the entire face, which will increase blood flow. You can watch Sarah Chapman demonstrate on YouTube Start by placing the tool on your chin, holding it at a right angle to your body and gently roll it back and forth along your jawline – if you go a little faster it feels more comfortable.
Next, place the tool to the front of your neck and roll it back and forth, then switch the angle again so that you’re holding the tool under your chin and roll it upwards. Once you’ve rolled your jawline and neck, turn the tool around and use the flat paddle at the handle end to gently pat over the entire face, focussing on bony areas such as the eye contour, encouraging toxins to drain and increase blood flow around the area.

My verdict? It takes a bit of getting used to and initially can feel sore but after using it for a few weeks you do adapt to it. I can see a small difference but particularly like to use it in the mornings when I feel a bit puffy or have not slept well and need some invigoration. For the small price tag (around £30) it is worth the investment and gives your face a good massage which feels great.
