I’m totally one of those people that sees something oddly cool on social media and immediately adds to their Amazon cart. However, I think I only end up buying about 3.4% of those items. One of those products that made it to the finish line of my mailbox is an ice roller. What is an “ice roller”, you might be wondering. Truthfully, if I hadn’t seen someone use it, I would’ve thought the same thing.
However, I’ve been using this oddly weird looking device for months now and it’s time to share. Keep reading to see all the ways that I’ve fallen in love with an ice roller and why you might need one, too.
First of all, what is an ice roller? Well, the best way I can describe it is that its a roller that you freeze and then roll over your face and/or skin. Why would you want to use this? Well, I initially bought this only intending it to use to minimize the look of my large pores. Oh, but I found a few other reasons.
Before I go into the other reasons, let’s talk pores. Years ago, after doing my skincare routine and before moisturizer, I would rub one ice cube all over my face. This would help, or I assumed would help, minimize the look of my pores as well as soothe my skin. Actually, the ice did minimize my pores some and made my makeup application smoother. So, when ever I feel like skin needs a little soothing and calming principles, I roll this on my face for a couple of minutes. This is way better than using an ice cube, because it’s easier and I don’t have to deal with dripping water all over the place.
The next use I found for the ice roller is to rub my muscles after a long day of being on my legs all day. However, I don’t apply it directly to my legs fresh out the freezer. I let it sit out on the counter to get it closer to room temperature, but still cool. It’s so relaxing!
My final use for the ice roller is probably going to be the reason I use it everyday in this summer. We have been experiencing some occasional heat waves and ya’ll…rolling this on my face at the end of a hot day feels so good! I almost rolled my face and body to sleep one time. When the temperatures start getting and staying in the 90s, please know I will use this everyday. I finally have a reason to look forward to hot, summer day!
I ordered mine from Amazon (of course!) and it’s available in different color options.
