LOVE IT! So soothing and a relaxing addition to my routine. Took a little long to get here but worth it. I got the bag to go with it as well, I definitely recommend that. Helps with travel and storing it somewhere safe.
Bought this because I wanted something that cleans easier without the stickiness residue (yes I did wash with soap too but doing this daily strips the layers of my current tool that I’ve had for years). This right off was very cool because of the steel, just what I needed and I love how it makes my skin feels. It is a little heavy though. This cleans easier too like your cutleries.
I ordered the stainless steel tool because I dropped and broke my stone one. I love this Gua Sha! It has a nice weight to it and glides across my skin effortlessly. It comes beautifully packaged, just as all of the Mount Lai products. I'm truly enjoying using this!
I was initially quite skeptical about if this tool would give any real results, but I have to say I am really impressed! I feel like I really notice a difference in my jawline especially, and even if it is placebo (i don't think so!) it is so relaxing to incorporate into my skincare routine, I love it!
The weight of the stainless steel Gua sha feels sturdy in my palms and helps me deliver medium pressure without having to exert more of my own strength/energy. It is easy to take care of - I wash after each use and store in the box it was sent in. I’ve been using Sandra Lanchin’s tutorials to learn more on Traditional Chinese Medicine and this tool. The cute packaging was a bonus.
Really lovely! Feels great in my hands, and is very solid.
Since using this starting in late March, I have been less puffy in the morning, a more defined cheekbone and jawline. I also love using this on my scalp to stimulate hair growth! You won’t regret it :relaxed:️
I was interested in trying gua sha because I have TMJ & migraines from stress & heard it could help. My previous gua sha broke so I was looking for one that wouldn’t break again. When this came in I was pleasantly surprised! Much thicker & heavy in weight - great quality. The only con is that because it’s more curved it 1) doesn’t get in deep as I would like and 2) it’s slippery after I apply skincare products. I’ll probably have to wash my hands before using this to prevent that. Other than that, great buy! I feel happy knowing that I am supporting an AAPI business as an Asian American mysef!
Love that there is a stainless steel gua sha offered by Mount Lai. I have broken my stone gua shas in the past and finally decided to get one that WOULDN'T break so easily PLUS it feels so nice cold on your face if you store it in the fridge.

The Benefits of Gua Sha & Facial Massage
Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, consistent facial massage with Mount Lai tools has a multitude of benefits:
by clearing congestion and removing blockages
by guiding excess fluid away from the face
by targeting and relaxing tight muscles in the face
by aiding in circulation, bringing blood and nutrients to the skin
by gently working and stretching the fascia that sits underneath the skin
by soothing and calming the complexion
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. ... If the lymphatic system is not functioning well, it can result in fluid build up which may result in puffy skin. Stagnation of the lymphatic system can also lead to an increase in toxins, which can make the skin appear dull or even result in acne breakouts.
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. ... Besides aiding with lymphatic drainage, gua sha massage stimulates circulation and blood flow. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the other cells and the combination of lymphatic drainage + massage allows you to remove toxins from the tissues and absorb greater nutrients to nourish the skin.
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. ... Tools allow you to work more evenly on the entire face and target pressure points more precisely than you would get with just your hands alone.
