Call us mad but we love rubbing jade on our face, infusing crystals into water and spritzing crystal water everywhere. Find out why...
Crystals are having a moment right now. We won’t deny, the jade face roller has been our favourite beauty buy of late and we’re also curious about luxe facials using jade – but crystal or crystal-infused products are very much a thing these days, and it goes well beyond the realm of jade rings and salt lamps. Whether you believe in their healing properties on a Gwyneth-grade level or just think they look damn pretty, take a peek at our our stash…
J-RO by Julisa rose quartz face roller
Crystal face rollers are back in vogue, with the promise of reducing puffiness, creating a lifting effect and reducing water retention. There are quite a few on the market, but Gold Coast, Australia-based holistic brand Julisa tops our list as founder Juliet S has gone next level with this rose quartz roller. Inspired by the full moon, and perfectly formed to get into all those tiny tension points that traditional rollers don’t reach, it’s also 24K rose gold-plated and triple-polished. Oooh. It’s so damn pretty we’re now seriously into our #selfcaresunday just to we can play with it. By the way, there’s also a 10-minute crystal-based meditation track that you can listen to while you melt your tension away. Our trick? Keep your roller in the fridge for an extra cooling effect.
Blue agate tray, Cream Home
We’ve all seen coasters made from slices of agate (which are even prettier when edged with gold), but what we’re really coveting now is this blue agate and copper number from Cream Home. Where else would one stash all of those crystal-infused sprays?
Cream Home, $129

VitaJuwel water bottle
The idea behind the VitaJuwel is that the crystals encased within the glass dome energise your drinking water, and possibly help to oxygenate, alkalinise and positively affect the structure of your drinking water. Pick from 18 combinations of gems: we went with the ‘Five Elements’ combo to encourage balance. Does it work? We think it’s a beautiful way to stay hydrated, and is quite the treat. And that’s what wellbeing is all about, no?
VitaJuwel, from $145.
Frank Skincare rose quartz beauty tools
Fave local beauty brand Frank Skincare – best known for its amazing face oils – has added a line of rose quartz beauty tools to heighten the self-care experience. Do you need four different tools in your life? Yes, you do. The roller, you probably already know, is a fantastic face and body massager and boosts circulation; the wand is for relieving tension in the neck and shoulders; the mushroom should be used in the eye area and is said to reduce dark circles; and who doesn’t want a scalloped rose gold body board for gua sha? Check out the tutorial videos so you can master the right strokes and acupressure techniques, which may prove addictive.
Frank Skincare, from $38.
Balipura Auric Spray
Balipura sprays are like an aromatherapy spritz (they smell divine), but seriously next level: they’re made with volcanic spring water and essential oils, and are infused with crystal energy. They’re even blessed by a Balinese Priest under the full moon. Yes, we’re into that. We picked up the Let Go spray, which is infused with clear quartz, amethyst and sodalite – and smells like cinnamon. Give in, take a deep breath and just enjoy it. We’ve spotted Balipura sprays at the Crystomania stall at our regular haunt, Katong Vintage Lifestyle Market and Therapy Market in i12 mall, Katong, if you need some of this, stat.
Balipura, approximately $34.
