A little while ago, in my July faves, I mentioned the Fourth Ray Beauty Rose Quartz Roller. As you can probably gather by the title, I was really happy with the little facial roller and felt it added to my skincare collection.
However, I felt as though the rose quartz roller deserved a post of its own. So, in this post, I discuss the benefits of a rose quartz facial roller, how it’s helped my skin and why it might make a neat addition to your skincare routine.
The Fourth Ray Beauty roller and its claims
A lot of rose quartz rollers cost in excess of £30 but the Fourth Ray Beauty one only costs $18 (around £14.50). I don’t think I would’ve bothered buying one if it was £40 but all of the products I’ve tried from Fourth Ray Beauty have been fab, so I thought: why not?
Prior to purchasing the roller, I’d heard about the benefits of the skincare tool but never truly knew what its purpose was. So, here’s what Fourth Ray has to say:
Made from real rose quartz, this facial roller is an essential tool to any skincare routine. A gentle massage with this roller will help cool and soothe puffiness, improve blood circulation, promote lymphatic drainage, improve skin elasticity, and relieve facial tension.Fourth Ray Beauty
After a few months of using the roller, I can now confirm which of Fourth Ray Beauty’s claims have been met.
Meeting the claims
Above all, the rose quartz roller is so relaxing and soothing to use. When I massage it over my skin, it feels cool and refreshing. For this reason, it definitely helps relieve any facial tension as my skin is certainly calmer after using the roller.
Due to its cooling properties, I love using it after a workout or if my skin feels hot; I still need to try putting it in the fridge!
Personally, I don’t suffer from puffy skin but given how soft it feels on my skin, I can see how the rose quartz roller would reduce puffiness. I also think the soothing feeling could help people with sensitive skin whose skin might be tense, irritated or inflamed.
As for improving blood circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage, I’m not too sure. How do you even check for these in your skin?
Finally, from Fourth Ray Beauty’s claims, I’m not sure about it improving my skin’s elasticity. I feel like my skin’s elasticity is already good and think this benefit would be more noticeable in more mature skin types.
Alongside the rose quartz roller helping cool and soothe my skin as well as release any facial tension, I’ve found some additional benefits from using this skincare tool.
Perhaps most noticeably, the roller has helped my skincare products – like my moisturiser – get absorbed into my skin more. When I massage the roller over my face, the product feels more evenly distributed too.
I’m also pretty convinced it makes my skin look more healthy and radiant. It’s either that or my Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum, or both.
To be honest, I just like the feeling of it on my skin. It feels luxurious, calming and gentle. If my skin feels stressed, massaging the rose quartz roller over my skin makes me feel like I’m massaging the stress away.
I like this skincare tool a lot. As much as it’s not a necessity, it certainly feels great to use and helps my skin soak up all the goodness from my skincare products.
I’d recommend getting a rose quartz roller but just don’t splash out like £40. It’s not justifiable. Get the Fourth Ray Beauty one or trawl through Amazon for rollers under £15.

This roller looks so gorgeous – I’ve never tried a roller like this before, so I was super curious to see how it actually worked. Do you typically use this before or after applying your skincare.
I agree that it would be hard to tell if certain long-term or unseen claims can be met, but I can imagine how relaxing this must feel.
I was really intrigued to see whether the roller would actually be good or not as well haha but turns out it’s really nice and soothing on my skin. I normally use if after applying my skincare products but before applying SPF.
Yeah, like how do you measure if your blood circulation has improved without consulting a specialist lol? But I do love the feeling of it on my skin 🙂
I’ve always thought rollers were kind of gimmicky but this one seems nice!
I think, to a certain point, they are. Like, they’re not essential or anything but it does feel really nice on your skin. I think a cheap one, like this one, is a lovely addition, but how you could justify spending £40 and above makes no sense to me haha
Wow! This packaging is absolutely beautiful xx
IKR, I love it!x
I was so interested in reading this post! I really wanted to know if a roller works/feels nice and if I need to add one to my skincare routine. By the reads of this, I’m pretty sure I need one lol. The Fourth Ray one is super beautiful and affordable so I’m definitely buying one from them soon.
I don’t think it’s a necessity by any means but I do love using it and it feels so cooling on my skin, which I love! Fourth Ray’s stuff is amazing anyway, I fully ship them
It’s so pretty and at such a good price! I sometimes get puffy under eyes so I wonder how it would be for that.
Probably very good, next time we do a Colourpop haul, you should get one!
