The Gua Sha is my new holy grail. I love using it, especially after a stressful day. It helps to massage in my oils and relieves a lot of built-up tension from my face. A little tip for cooling down in the summer: Place the Gua Sha in the refrigerator a few minutes before using it. The perfect way to reduce a puffy morning face.

This hand-crafted rose quartz Gua Sha is specifically designed to enhance your natural beauty by increasing blood circulation to refresh, refine & tighten your skin. It boosts lymphatic drainage, relieves muscular tensions and stimulates a variety of acupressure points to help ease stress and anxiety. It can help reduce sagging, dull & wrinkled skin while increasing self-love and promoting feelings of well-being.

As Rose Quartz is a natural stone, each stone will be unique and may vary in color, appearance and size.

How to use: Warm a few drops of facial oil in the palms of your hands and apply over the face, neck and décolleté as the last step in your skincare ritual. Start by using gentle stroking actions in upward motions from your clavicle to your chin, then go up and out along your jawline, over the cheekbones and from the center of your forehead to your hairline. Tread gently around the eye area (no tugging the delicate skin). See diagram above. For best results, use for 3 to 5 minutes daily.

Skincare can really be that simple, pure and effective. Claire, the founder of Merme, realized that even so-called "natural" skin and hair products were full of chemicals and decided to do something about it. In Berlin, she creates pure and simple beauty products containing only one highest quality ingredient, inspired by her late grandmother "Merme" who only used homemade, natural, high-quality oils to cure any skin alignment.
