The Benefits of Jade Rolling

Today on KCL Beauty we're talking all about the jade roller! This skincare tool has become so popular lately that I just had to try it out for myself. While this particular roller by Sana Vie Beauty will be on the next KCL Beauty Edit, today's blog and vlog are all about the tool in general - how to use it and how your skin can greatly benefit from incorporating it into your beauty routine.



Jade stone in particular has been used to ward off negativity and bring harmony. You can read more on that here - Jade Meaning & Healing Properties. Personally, I'm very excited about the recent trend of holistic health combined with beauty. Though whether or not you're getting into that trend, the jade facial roller can still enhance your skincare routine for several proven reasons. See my full how-to and tips in the video below.


If you do want to go ahead and try jade rolling for yourself, you can currently get this Sana Vie roller for just $9.99. That is a pretty great price…

CLARINS Beauty Spring 2018


I always look forward to Spring. After winter, I'm ready for some color and some beautiful blooms. When it comes to fashion and makeup, Spring is a fun time for florals and feminine colors. This year I'm particularly into pastel pink and lavender.

CLARINS has a few new makeup items in pink and purple that they're promoting for Spring 2018, and I was happy to give them a try! I've had the pleasure of testing out the new SOS Primer in Lavender, the 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette in "Lovely Rose," and the Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Plum.



I've really enjoyed using the CLARINS SOS Primer. My skin can appear quite dull, especially during winter. This primer gave it a nice punch of color. Each SOS Primer by Clarins is meant to address a specific need, so you can mix and match or use just one. For brightening and evening skin tone, the lavender, paired with my usual foundation and concealer, has made a big difference for me. It gives a touch of color that makes my skin look much more healthy, and it really helps to cover up both dark spots and red irritated patches of skin. The effect is so much more correcting, rather than covering up with heavy foundation.



The CLARINS Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector is meant to feel like a balm and shine like a gloss. While I do love the color, and it does deliver on both moisture and shine, I have to say I was unimpressed by its staying power. When I used it on a Saturday afternoon of shopping with my husband, I found myself reapplying it multiple times in just a few hours.

That is fine for a cheap lip balm that only costs a few dollars. But for a CLARINS lip product which costs $26.00, it really should stay on longer. I have to take into consideration how much you would be spending on this, and considering it costs over $20, I really can't recommend it to you guys.


What I would recommend however, was my absolute favorite item in the new Spring collection by CLARINS - the Lovely Rose eyeshadow palette. This palette as a whole is so beautiful, and perfect for spring. The shimmer is subtle (just how I like it), and the color is heavily pigmented. The shades are quite versatile in that I can wear them all together, or I can lightly apply one or two shades for an easy daytime look, or I can use just one of the shades to create a bold, colorful look in seconds. And as you can see, it comes in a beautiful gold-tone case!
