What it is:

A powerful duo that depuffs, soothes and lifts the skin through the art of facial massage for a radiant glow. 

Unlike the other stones, Black Obsidian naturally retains warmth and is great to use on congested, blemish prone skin. The warmth of the obsidian encourages stimulation of the lymphatic system and circulation. To warm our Black Obsidian tools, we recommend placing them in a glass of warm water.







What it does:
Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, the facial roller and the gua sha tool have a multitude of benefits.
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Reduces puffiness and inflammation of skin
  • Promotes lymphatic drainage
  • Relieves facial and jaw tension





How to use:
Start with a clean face and prep skin with a facial oil or serum. Both tools work together to enhance your beauty rituals and pair perfectly with a serum or facial oil for better absorption. All the tools you need for a luxurious facial, conveniently packaged in a giftable box.

For the facial roller:
1) Start in the middle of the face and roll outwards across the cheeks.
2) Move to the eyebrows and roll upwards across the forehead.
3) Move below the lower lip and roll downward across the chin.

For the gua sha tool:
1) Keep the tool flat against the face and begin with the forehead. Scrape in an upwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline.
2) Move to the cheeks and scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose until the ear.
3) Move to the jawline and use the end of the gua sha tool with the two curves.
4) Start from the chin and scrape until the ear. Gently massage the gua sha tool into the ear to release tension.
5) For the under-eye area, very gently scrape the gua sha from the inner corner of the eye outwards to the temple. Because the area is so sensitive, it is important to only apply light pressure.

Due to natural variations in stone, every black obsidian tool is unique in pattern and color. The stones + crystals we use are authentic and natural. We do not artificially dye or treat the stones to let their true beauty shine through.

The Black Obsidian Facial Spa Set

A western medicine & bodywork framework take on using the Gua sha tools and practice

I understand and respect that the cultural framework of Gua sha is a very different lens from my own. I can appreciate it, but can only give a thorough review from my own perspective: I received most of my education in the western medicine and western bodywork frameworks and incorporate other lenses but mostly stick with that.

Very smooth handling tools - nicely finished edges. I've tried quartz, stainless steel and obsidian tools now and did find that the volcanic glass warmed faster and stayed warmer (without pre-warming) than the others. I also felt the surface has a bit more resistance/grab and felt like it subtly lifted the skin more than the quartz tools - and so the whole massage process felt different. There are definitely subtle improvements to my appearance beyond what was getting with manual massage, I have less sinus pain, my TMJ issues which were caused by tension have reduced and it has contributed to lowering my stress as the practice is intentional, rather meditational, and neurologically relaxing your muscles has an upstream effect on your brain. All good things!

I like using gently pre-warmed obsidian lifting and rolling tools for the strokes along the nasal passages (initially), jaw, neck and base of the skull which effect a lot of lymphatic drainage. I like using chilled quartz or stainless tools to finish over my sinuses and around my eyes for the vasoconstriction/de-puffing effect. I also use the tools on other parts of my body for self-massage. I plan to swap out my lesser--quality quartz tools for some Mt. Lai versions soon.

Nice little set

I'm enjoying this set. I found that I love obsidian, it is very warming, and it's so nice to have the two tools together.

Immediately helps puffiness

I see results so quickly in the puffiness of my face when I use this! Very happy with my purchase (I got the obsidian set)

Incredible!

Already after 3 days of using it I can see that my skin is reacting to it. I have been using gua sha for a while and I have acne prone skin and I can see that my skin reacts differently to massages with black obsidian versus cooling stones. Very grateful I came across the knowledge of mount lai!

The “mount lai” is peeling off already but the products themselves are nice!!

Facial roller fell apart

The gua sha tool is great and I've seen results from using it everyday for almost a month now. The facial tool, on the other hand, fell apart after a few uses. The larger roller completely fell off and my trying to reattach it did not last long. Pretty disappointed because I was loving the roller. I wish it was more durable.

worth it!

I bought this set as my first ever gua sha tools according to the stone quiz and I was not disappointed! There is a noticeable difference from the cheap quality products you can find elsewhere. Definitely worth the price! I’ll need more soon!

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE RITUAL

Why It Works

Mount Lai tools are designed to work on the lymphatic system, address adhesions in the fascia and melt tension in the facial and jaw muscles, promoting a radiant complexion + combatting fine lines and wrinkles.

01 / Why is lymphatic drainage important? The lymphatic system is a part of the immune system that helps the body get rid of toxins and waste. ...

02 / The benefits of lymphatic drainage are two-fold. Lymphatic drainage removes toxic and congestive substances from the tissues, which allows greater absorption of nutrients. ...

03 / Why is using a tool better than using your hands? The beauty of Mount Lai tools is that they work on the skin without pulling. As a result, the tool is able to work on the very surface level of the skin to target the lymph system and fascia that you wouldn’t be able to target with your hands. ...
