Fun fact: Even though my skin is way too sensitive for facials (aggro extractions and peels = not my thing), I’m always down for a face massage. There’s just something so relaxing about gently massaging the tension out of your face—whether you’re using a jade roller, gua sha, or some fancy-ass tool—and it’s super easy to fit into your routine without disrupting your skin. Like, fine, face massagers can’t give you Zendaya’s cheekbones overnight but they can temporarily reduce swelling, soothe puffiness, and enhance your natural glow—and who TF doesn’t want that?

So wash your face, grab your favorite oil or moisturizer, and whip out one of these 10 best face massagers below.

Best Face Massager for Sculpting
Skin Gym Face Sculptor Beauty Roller
Move this face massager in upward strokes along the contours of your face and you’ll feel how it gently—but effectively!—kneads your skin. Think of this pick as the next-best thing after a legit, professional massage—it’ll leave you looking noticeably fresh and glowy in five to 10 mins. Pro tip: A thin layer of face oil will help this bb glide along your skin.
Best Gua Sha Face Massager
Lanshin Intro Gua Sha Tool Rose Quartz
Gua sha—a skincare technique that’s derived from traditional Chinese medicine—involves “slowly stroking and massaging the face and neck to improve circulation and release tension, which can leave it less puffy and more glowy,” Sandra Lanshin Chiu, founder of Treatment by Lanshin in Brooklyn, has told Cosmo. This face massager from Chiu’s personal line is great for beginners—just make sure you load up on moisturizer beforehand, and watch a YouTube tutorial to really ace the technique.
Best Cleansing Face Massager
Foreo Luna 3 Combination Skin Facial Cleansing & Firming Massage Device
This multitasking tool does far more than massage your face (though it also does an excellent job at that). The Foreo Luna helps wash away any oil, grime, and dead skin cells camped out on your face, leaving you clean, soft, and ready for the rest of your skincare routine. This blue beauty is made for combination skin, but the brand also offers one for sensitive and “normal” skin types.
Best Vibrating Face Massager
Flawless by Finishing Touch Flawless Contour
This isn’t your average facial roller, thanks to the fact that it gently vibrates when you press it on your skin. The result is a super-relaxing massage that helps release tension and reduce puffiness every time you use it. And it even comes with two rose-quartz stones: one for your face, and one for under your eyes.
Best Travel Face Massager
The Cristalline Color Pop Champagne with Sodalite Single Face Roller
Not only is this face massager ridiculously pretty (I mean…how good would it look on your vanity?), but it’s also a great option for traveling. Its compact size is easy to pop into your toiletry bag, and the head is even removable for easy storage.
Best Cryo Face Massager
Georgia Louise Cryo Facial Freeze Tools
Hot tip: Start by throwing these teeny face massagers into your freezer and leave ’em there overnight. When you roll them along your skin in the morning, the cold temperature will help de-puff, tighten, and soothe inflammation in one fell swoop. You can even hold them over or under your eyes for more targeted application.
Best Face Massager for Lifting
Nurse Jamie UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller
It might look a little unassuming, but this face massager is actually equipped with 24 black tourmaline stones that help temporarily lift and sculpt your face. After cleansing and moisturizing your skin, gently press and roll in upward strokes to get the full effects.
Best Face Massager for Puffy Eyes
Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Eye Treatment Tool
Looking for a face massager that really targets your under-eye area? This jade tool from Mount Lai is the perfect size for sliding under and over your eyes—and, with the right amount of pressure, it can help temporarily relieve puffy skin and bags.
Best Ice Roller Face Massager
Pur Botanicals Ice Roller Face Massager
You know how some people massage their puffy skin with ice cubes? This face massager is basically a step up from that. All you do is throw it into the freezer overnight and by the time you take it out, it’ll be chilled enough to help de-puff and soothe your tired skin.
Best Luxury Face Massager
ReFa Carat Face
I know a $220 face massager isn’t super realistic for most people, but if you’re looking to splurge, you can’t go wrong with the ReFa Carat Face. Circulation is the name of the game with this one—trace it along your skin and it’ll help massage, firm, and enhance your pretty lil face (even delicate areas, like under your eyes).
