Celebs Can't Stop Rubbing This Beauty Wand On Their Faces
A-listers like Hilary Duff, Busy Philipps, and Khloé Kardashian swear the product instantly reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
It's no secret that face rollers are popular right now. From jade rollers to facial stones, you've probably noticed these odd-looking beauty tools on your Instagram explore feed being used by celebrities and beauty bloggers alike.
But what exactly makes them so special? Based on innumerable five-star Amazon reviews and celebrity testimonies, they promise to alleviate puffiness, tame dark circles, and increase collagen production by stimulating the soft tissue of the face. (On that note, see these anti-aging solutions that have nothing to do with products or surgery.)
Even though there are a plethora of these beauty tools to choose from, there's one wand, in particular, that seems to have everyone obsessed: The Nurse Jamie UpLift Facial Massage Roller.
Created by LA-based celebrity nurse Jamie Sherrill (aka Nurse Jamie), the product has quickly developed a cult following becoming a go-to beauty tool for a range of celebrities. (Related: Should You Be Exercising Your Face?)
Scrolling through Nurse Jamie's Instagram feed, you'll see everyone from Khloé Kardashian and Hilary Duff to Busy Philipps and Jessica Alba singing the product's praises. Kardashian said UpLift was "life-changing" on Instagram while Alba, in an interview with IntoTheGloss, said, "Part face workout, part thing you don't want to be caught doing in public, the tool rolls over your face, warming up the muscles, tightening the skin, and doing God knows what else to make you look like you live in Los Angeles and drink a lot of water."

So what exactly is the UpLift Beauty Roller anyway? Well, while the hexagon shaped roller might look different from traditional jade rollers, it still relies on massage stones to do its magic. Rather than having one smooth stone, the UpLift uses 24 massaging stones to temporarily energize, enhance, revive, and uplift your skin. The key word there being temporarily.
While the product gets its fans thanks to its instant results, face rollers aren't a replacement for a good skin-care routine, as Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital, previously told us. That said, there really isn't a downside to using to these beauty tools and they can, at the very least, enhance penetration of active ingredients into the skin, Dr. Zeichner said.
Looking for a more traditional facial roller? Nurse Jamie has you covered on that front as well. Her latest invention, the NuVibe RX Amethyst Massaging Beauty Tool, is slowly becoming a fan-favorite as well. The facial tool looks a lot like a jade roller, but on top of having an amethyst applicator, it uses sonic vibrations (6,000 pulses per minute to be exact) to help soften lines and wrinkles and tighten skin. Dorit Kemsley from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recently took to Instagram to share how she instantly fell in love with the product. "This is unbelievable," she said in the video that was reshared by Nurse Jamie. "First of all, it vibrates, it tightens, it lifts, it vibrates and it's amethyst...I could do this all day."
If you're interested in trying out the UpLift beauty roller or the NuVibe RX yourselves, they will set you back $69 on Amazon and $95 on Nurse Jamie's website-and even though we're unsure if they're worthwhile, we'll just defer to the old saying of "to each her own."
