First of all, someone call
First of all, someone call Sarah Cheung and tell her this is a game changer! I have used this product literally for two and a half weeks and I have noticed that this Gua Sha tool is best used during either the toner or moisturizer phase in my skincare routine. The fact that Gua Sha in itself actually refers to scraping which releases muscle tension and activates the lymphatic flow. This in turn reduces the look of puffiness, wrinkles and inflammation. I've noticed that my skin feels a lot firmer and I have more of a radiant glow when using during the day. Fun fact! Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese healing method that has been known to help treat migraines and breast engorgement for nursing mothers. Living in Texas the heat can be exhausting for your skin, I have found that if you mist with your toner throughout the day and smooth out the misting spray with your Gua Sha tool you will instantly feel a cooling and calming effect. PRO TIP! Apply a thin layer of aloe Vera with your Gua Sha tool then watch how the redness fade away! In my opinion if you have puffy eyes or poor blood circulation you can benefit 100% from this tool if used correctly. If you struggle with acne this can also help due to the fact that it can calm and cool inflammation PRO TIP! Store in your fridge 30mins before you begin your skincare routine apply an eye cream under your eye using your Gua Sha tool! Thank me later! Lymphatic drainage? Blood circulation? Sounds like a lot, right? The main thing to know is that unlike our circulatory system there is no pump for the lymphatic system. This means Gua Sha can help assist with toxin build up, detoxification and tension build up! PRO TIP! Use warm oil on the back of your neck then place your Gua Sha tool inside of a warm towel (avoid leaving your tool for too long). Apply your Gua Sha tool to the back of your neck in an up and down motion for a therapeutic massage. Gua Sha is most often used to relieve muscle and joint pain. Conditions of the muscles and bones are known as musculoskeletal disorders. Some examples include back pain, tendon strain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Practitioners claim that Gua Sha can also benefit the immune system and reduce inflammation. Sometimes, Gua Sha is used to treat a cold, fever, or problems with the lung says Medical News Today. Last week I had a massage, I had my massage therapist to use my Gua Sha tool during my visit and I noticed a major difference. At first my back was really itchy during my treatment, then when I actually stood up, I noticed my back wasn't as stiff as before, I have metal in my spine due to metal fusion I had years ago and I felt a lot of pressure that was once there had dissipated. The unique thing about this Gua Sha tool is that for one its super easy to clean versus the facial rollers and it's made out of stainless steel. Traditional metals can cause an allergic reaction while stainless steel is unlikely to cause any reaction at all. Another unique point of difference is that this tool can help with the appearance of skin but also clear energy fields and blocks! This means, it has both therapeutic and healing qualities. Gua Sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin's surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing Says Healthline. PRO TIP! Gua Sha can be performed on the abdomen to assist with nausea/ upset stomach. During a facial with my client, I pulled out this tool and applied the cooling mask, my client melted away. Whether day or night you can defiantly benefit from this tool, since its stainless steel it holds well to warm and cool temperatures. Its none porous, meaning it helps prevent bacteria build up that can transfer to our skin. You would be amazed by the results you can achieve in the first two weeks alone, at first I was thinking okay, what is this? We have so many of these on the market! But now I must admit I am a believer!!! Go grab yours today!
I like that it's more hygienic than using a regular stone guasha because stainless steel doesn't having any pores to trap bacteria. I bought this specifically to help drain my lymph nodes and it does work for that. If someone says that it depuffs and makes it stay that way they're lying, you have to do it every day.
I did take 2 stars off because it's false advertising to have a perfectly shiny and polished guasha when it actually comes completely scratched up as if it got messed up getting pulled off the production line, and also I noticed that since it's metal heat travels around it faster. Meaning the longer I hold it the warmer it gets, unlike a stone one (and I only hold one edge of it).
sarah can do no wrong, this is perfect
i love it so much, it feels so nice on the skin and it's so easy to clean. get the slick skin serum as well and your skin will glow forever
Wouldn't recommend nothing special
Save yourself and just get a basic 1 dollar gusha despite the steel they do the same thing and the 1 dollar one would probably be higher quality I found the steel on this one began peeling and couldn't properly use it without getting bits of the steel on my face wouldn't recommend something seriously wrong with it
It'll do the trick.
I used some anti-bacterial hand soap when I got it to clean it. I like that it's made of stainless steel because it's cooling on your skin at first. In my opinion, it's fairly easy to use and clean. The only drawback is that it came with scratches in it, but it's a small company and products are gonna be 100% perfect right out the gate. I don't think they'll cause any issues in the foreseeable future. So all in all, it does the job and it's pretty good at it.
Read Before Purchasing
I purchased this product and within 2 times using it, the outer layer of fake silver coating rubbed off and onto my skin. I will be returning it!
Just received this, so these are just first thoughts, but I'm already impressed! I've never used gua sha before, but I loved the idea of this one being non porous and easy to sanitize. It feels very substantial in my hand. Came in pristine condition with a little protective bag. I used it right away and it was easy to use and so relaxing. When I washed it, I could already tell the temp difference in the metal, so I'm excited to try it out of the fridge as well!
