16 Crystal-Infused Skin Products You Need
Unless you’re an avid crystal collector, you’re probably mostly used to having sapphire, amethyst or rose quartz wrapped round your finger in the form of a Pandora birthstone ring.
But, ICYMI or shall we say, in case you’ve been living under a rock, crystals have recently found their way into skin care, and the world is going crazy for it.
Yep, crystal-infused skin care is the latest beauty trend to go global, with nearly 70k posts on Instagram using the hashtag #jaderoller.
And well, she’s not wrong. Crystals have been around for centuries, often used in Ayurvedic practices and best known for their healing powers and energies, so it comes as no surprise that it’s believed when crushed and powdered, gemstones provide incredible skin care benefits.
‘It makes sense for the beauty industry to incorporate the natural, organic feeling of crystals into their products and skincare routines,’ she says. ‘More consumers are shying away from things like chemicals in the products and techniques they use. As well as this, many crystals hold an energy healing vibration which can relax, soothe, uplift and rejuvenate.’
Intrigued? We were too. Here's 16 of the best crystal-infused skin care products that you need to try.
Gem: Rose quartz, gold and silver extracts
If anyone knows how to do crystal-infused skin care, it’s pioneers Sjal. This 'miracle worker' face tonic helps soothe any irritations, redness and inflammations. In fact, the blend of precious gemstones contains antimicrobial properties to help reduce skin stressors, so you're left with a refreshed complexion.
Whilst watermelon seed oil headlines this serum, the formula is wrapped with the protective crystal energy of amethyst. That means, as your skin soaks up the important vitamins and minerals it needs to look and feel healthy, it is also reinstalled with inner peace and calmness. Now that’s what we call a spa-like experience from the comfort of your own home.
Gem: Black diamond
Staying true to its name, this cream is bursting with black diamond particles. The crushed crystal aids the other active ingredients in the formula, ensuring that they sink deep into the skin epidermis and are absorbed effectively. The result? Skin that is nourished, uniform and more youthful-looking.
Gem: Rose quartz
Belonging to a multi-award-winning collection, this pure and natural face mist is all you need to give tired skin a much-needed boost. Fragonia and chamomile combine to combat fatigue and stress, whilst rose quartz crystal water restores a sense of inner peace.
It’s the tool that has everyone talking, and for good reason too. Helping to maximise the performance of your skin care products, the jade roller gives skin a gentle massage, all whilst promoting a glowy complexion and sense of peace and purity.
Gem: Blue sodalite
Similar to the facial roller, the gua sha is an ancient beauty tool that encourages blood circulation in order to refine, tone and smooth skin. Its unique sculpture hugs the contours of skin and improves everything from elasticity to fine lines. This gua sha is made from blue sodalite – a stone known for harmony, peace and inner tranquility, making it the perfect pampering accessory for any self-care routine.
Gem: Rose quartz
Take your skin care routine from basic to boujee with the Kora Organic Rose Quartz Luminizer. This organic highlighter is formulated with finely crushed rose quartz, noni fruit extract, coconut and rosehip oils. The infusion of rose quartz is what laces skin with an unmatched shimmer that catches the natural light.
Gem: Black pearl
From black pearl to frozen quartz and blond opal, it doesn’t get more crystal-inspired than this. But besides the obvious - the iridescent shimmer shades and the names to match – this makeup formula is actually infused with Tahitian black pearl extract and radiance-trapping prisms. Just one sweep over the lids is enough to dazzle from A.M to P.M.
There’s no better glow than a glow derived from natural crystals. Herbivore blends pineapple and papaya enzymes (two AHAs that gently exfoliate away dead skin cells) with micronised Brazilian tourmaline gemstone in order to create a mask that leaves skin fresh, bright and radiant.
Wave goodbye to dull, tired skin as this expert exfoiliator provides the ultimate youthful glow. Enriched with a ruby crystal complex, which is ace at promoting radiance, this product helps buff away dead skin to reveal a soft, even and bright complexion with minimised pores.
Taking bath salts to the next level is ilapothecary. This assortment of mineral salts features powdered amethyst, as well as amber, juniper berry, benzoin and petitgrain. Amethyst has a super high mineral content, which makes it a great contender for healing and clarifying stressed-out skin.
Dubbed as the lean, mean green machine, this detox clay mask is everything you need and more to give your skin a fighting chance against pollution. Utilising the healing and protecting powers of crystals, it contains malachite - a mineral extract infamous for its ability to detoxify and shield against negative energies and environmental aggressors.
Pucker up! It’s time to indulge in a treatment that plumps, hydrates and softens lips. This triple-action formula does a boss job at restoring, reviving and repairing a dry and chapped pout, but it’s the green aventurine crystal applicator that we love. Aventurine is known for its precious energy, luck and prosperity, making this our go-to when we’re looking for a kiss-worthy pout.
