6 Crystal-Infused Products to Energize Your Beauty RoutineSeptember 27, 2018
With self-care increasing in popularity, so has crystal therapy and all of the healing properties it provides. Crystals, when used in stone form, are said to draw away negative energy in certain areas of your life (depending on which crystal you use), and have become a staple in many a celebrity and influencer arsenal. So what happens when you add these supercharged stones into your beauty products? Well, it depends. In some cases, like the Herbivore Brighten Pineapple and Gemstone Mask, Brazilian Tourmaline naturally brightens the complexion. In makeup like Glossier Haloscope, genuine crystal extract promises “all-day enlightenment.” Whether crystals will help draw away negative energy from your life is up for debate, but raising your consciousness about crystal therapy and energies can’t be a bad thing. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re pretty to look at. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the crystal-infused products we’ll be adding to our beauty bags. See our picks ahead:
Finding the perfect setting powder is akin to finding a four-leaf clover — it doesn’t happen often. Cue this lightweight powder from Lancôme that leaves skin with a smooth finish and doesn’t cause flashback. It’s perfect for setting concealer or dusting all over the face to ensure your skin stays mattified all day. This powder contains mica, which is a class of gemstones known for increasing flexibility in situations, reflection and self-assessment so you can bake and do some self-care at the same time.
Infused with rose quartz, watermelon and lemongrass, this hydrating crystal mist is the perfect addition to your desk and vanity (trust us, you need two). It also contains aloe, making it a soothing and refreshing way to give yourself a quick dose of self-love (and moisture) throughout the day.
If the goal is to look more like a crystal than to incorporate them into your routine, give this holographic liner a try. Available in five gem-toned shades with multi-dimensional reflects, it’s an easy way to bring crystals to your beauty routine without breaking the bank.
If you prefer the glazed-donut highlight look to a full-on strobing glow, give Glossier Haloscope a try. The outer halo contains all the shimmer while the inner core is packed with vitamin rich moisturizers. The result? A dewy finish that can be worn with or without face makeup. It’s currently available in three shades designed to complement just about everyone so you’re bound to find one you love.
A mask designed to provide natural radiance featuring rice powder and pineapple enzymes, it harnesses the natural brightening properties of Brazilian Tourmaline to help you achieve glowy, healthy looking skin. It’s the perfect nighttime mask (Herbivore doesn’t recommend exposing the skin to the sun after use), and can be used for up to 20 minutes. At $48, it’s a little bit of a splurge, but all the glowing reviews suggest that this little jar of goodness is definitely worth it.
If you want to go the traditional route and use whole stones all over the face, try this crystal facial by Girl Undiscovered. Set your intentions before using the moon-bathed quartz — perfect for working in a serum or massaging an oil deeper into the skin. For $29, you’ll receive two amethyst stones to help with calming the mind and reducing stress, two pieces of rose quartz to promote unconditional love, and two citrine stones to aid in circulation while also providing happiness. You can use a few at once or one at a time for a customized crystal facial experience.
