7 Crystal-Infused Beauty Products That Are Pure Magic
So, you’ve dabbled in jade rolling and, heck, maybe you’ve even purchased a healing crystal of your own. But just in case you needed further proof that this trend is no passing fad, these sparkling gems are no longer limited to yoga studios and New Age bookstores—you can now find crystals on the beauty shelves of your favorite department store. And while we can’t promise that the addition of these stones will boost your complexion, we can’t deny that we’re pretty into the idea of shimmery products that promise to bring you good vibes inside and out. Here, seven gem-infused beauty products.
Sisley Eye Contour Mask
Designed to reduce under-eye puffiness, this cooling treatment is made with the pretty green gem malachite, which, according to the French skin-care brand, “reinforces the skin's defenses against free radicals.” To use, apply a thick layer on the eye contour and eyelids two or three times per week. Allow to work its magic for ten minutes, then wipe away the excess without rinsing.
Själ Kashmir Saphir Perfecting Mask
Each product in this cult gemstone-infused skin-care line is “charged” with precious minerals and gemstones, including this anti-aging mask that features platinum, blue sapphire, blue copper and gold designed to lift, tone and firm. Use one to three times per week for ten to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
Nurse Jamie UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller
This hexagon-shaped facial massager contains 24 precious tourmaline stones, which the Hollywood skin-care expert claims will temporarily energize, enhance and lift your skin. Whether that’s due to the stones working their magic or the rhythmic rolling action is unclear, but hey, if it’s good enough for Miranda Kerr...

La Prairie Cellular Mineral Face Exfoliator
Did you know that a girl’s best friend can be part of your beauty regimen? Here’s the science behind diamonds in skin care: Because these gems are so durable, they make an excellent exfoliating ingredient. This translucent gel uses the gem to slough off dead skin cells, remove pore-clogging debris and stimulate circulation.

Haloscope Highlighter Stick
Dubbed “the galaxy’s first dew effect highlighter,” the outer halo of this shimmery stick is infused with rose quartz or golden topaz (depending on the shade) while the core is a vitamin-rich moisturizer. Glide the highlighter directly onto your face in a half-halo motion around each eye (brow bone to cheekbone), then tap lightly with fingertips to blend for a hydrated, dewy finish.
Sephora Pearl Mask
Not just for your grandma’s jewelry. In fact, pearl is becoming quite the trendy wellness ingredient—you can even add it to your smoothies. This budget-friendly sheet mask claims to harness the powers of this shimmery gem in order to brighten the complexion. Place on your face for 15 minutes (we recommend using while watching The Crown), then remove and gently massage excess product into the skin.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum
This anti-wrinkle serum contains two healing crystals (rhodochrosite and quartz), seaweed extract and argan to firm, smooth and hydrate your complexion. Use morning and evening, underneath your moisturizer. (And yes, you really should be using a serum.)
