These Are The Crystal-Infused Beauty Products You Need Now

Don’t be fooled by the rocks that we’ve got.

Between your colleague blaming her busted phone on mercury being in retrograde and your sister lining her vanity with some serious crystals, it’s no surprise that the use of crystals in healing, meditation, and alternative medicine has become so mainstream that there are now crystal-infused beauty products. We
found some beauty products that rock, literally.

Herbivore Botanicals, Brighten Instant Glow Mask, $72
Hello, glow!  Slough away your dead skin gently with the goodness of pineapple and papaya enzymes. The “Micronized Brazilian tourmaline” crystal in the mask gently warms to increase circulation. Elemis Pro Collagen Quartz Lift Serum, US$177 (S$241)
You can call quartz the jack of all trades in the crystal realm because there’s literally nothing they can’t do. In this serum, quartz crystals are used to smoothen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. MMerciencore Rose Quartz Facial Massager, $73
Encourage drainage, undo tension and boost circulation with these ridiculously pretty facial massagers. Sold in a pair, use these babies with your favourite cleansing balm, serum or facial oil and massage your face into a state of unadulterated bliss. Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask, $108.66
The gold flakes may be what sell this product, but we’re in it for the peridot. An ancient green gemstone that’s rich in magnesium, the crystal helps to reenergise and minimise the effects of stress on the skin. Midas, who? De Mamiel Brightening Cleanse & Exfoliate, US$47.16 (S$64)
This exfoliating powder also has rose quartz, but what we love is how incredibly fun it is to use it. Scoop a teaspoon of it into wet hands, mix with water and watch it turn into a mousse before massaging onto skin. Själ Balans Gentle Deep Pore Cleanser, US$75 (S$102)
Cult favourite brand Själ is gemstone-infused and is “charged” with precious minerals and gemstones. This cleanser, which is perfect for sensitive skin, features rose quartz to revive and strengthen your skin’s immunity.
