The best!

I love this balm. I have sensitive skin and have struggled with hormonal acne, and this has been a game changer. My skin looks and feels moisturized, but not oily, and the lines are less noticeable. I’ve been told numerous times that my skin has a glow to it, and it’s 100% because of this product. This one has become a staple in my routine, and I use it daily.

Heather G

I first bought this balm because I love the color and the clean ingredients. Now I’ve just ordered 2 more because it’s practically perfect. I use it to “slug” my face at night over my other moisturizers and absolutely love it. It doesn’t irritate my skin, doesn’t cause me to break and doesn’t have a strong scent. It soothes any skin irritation and has the perfect amount of slip. I’m so glad I found this.

Amazing overnight cream

Second time purchasing this. I use it overnight and wake up with soft skin.

So Good

Money is tight and this is honestly probably outside my budget, but it's so vital that I scrape together to make sure I can keep buying it. The smell is very light, unlike some things that are overpowering, and it leaves your skin feeling so moisturized and buttery soft. It's perfect for gua sha!

Maureen R
Really great balm

This is a great product even to use as a moisturizer. I bought it as a slip agent but I love how hydrating it is. Smells nice and you need a tiny scoop. Gives such a great glow after gua sha too!

Calming Herbal Repair Serum Balm

I love using this in the morning before gua shaing my face. It is light & dewy and feels amazing on my skin. It doesn't feel sticky or have an awful odor like other products from other companies. I love that it is a clean product that won't harm my face, which is one less stress in my life. I love this product!

Honest Review from an Acne Survivor

This product unbeknownst to me would change my skin for the better! I was give the guasha and repair serum kit for Christmas 2 years ago really just looking to lift my face and tightening my skin. I hade no idea the Repair Serum was going to repair the my skins barrier. its addressed hydration, elasticity AND i noticed a HUGE change in my acne brake-outs. I've reorder this product about 4 times. A little goes a LONG way and i think the price is justifiable for that reason. I love this product and would highly recommend it!

Purple Goddess Balm

I've been using the product for about a month now - it did take a little bit for me to figure out how to incorporate it into my skincare routine. I have acne-prone/oily skin - at first, I tried using the balm after my serums and before moisturizer but I found it best used as the last step before using their gua sha tools and then massaging any leftover balm.

I have noticed it has calmed my redness and my skin looks plump and moisturized!

Best Gua Sha stones

Very well made stones and rollers, and fantastic presentation. I have purchased 4 different types for myself and as gifts- each one is unique and beautiful. The balm is amazing too! Highly recommend!

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. ...
