Regular price $34.00  — proud to be Carbon & Plastic Neutral!
A breath of calmness in your busy life. A daily ritual, an act of self care.

What it is:
Gua sha has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, this gua sha tool was built to have a contouring, firming, and lifting effect on the skin. Our bestselling, award winning Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool is now available in Stainless Steel. Benefits of Stainless Steel include:
  • ULTRA COOLING: Cool to the touch, stainless steel soothes the skin and decreases facial puffiness.
  • DURABLE: Less prone to breakage and more resilient to drops, making it perfect to use for any situation, even when traveling or in the shower.
  • PROFESSIONAL GRADE: High quality stainless steel allows for deep cleaning and disinfecting for professional grade usage.
What it does:
In addition to improving overall health and radiance of the skin, gua sha has a multitude of benefits.
  • Contours and defines facial features
  • Promotes lymphatic drainage
  • Reduces puffiness and fluid buildup
  • Relieves facial and jaw tension
  • Aids in circulation to give skin a glow
  • Firms and lifts the face over time
How to use:
- Start with a clean face and prep skin with a facial oil or serum to enhance the glide of the gua sha tool and nourish the skin. We love to pair the gua sha tool with Mount Lai's natural skincare products, which are made from nourishing herbs & plants and designed to pair with our tools. Shop skincare here.
-Keep the tool flat against the face and begin with the forehead. Scrape in an upwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline.
- Move to the cheeks and scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose until the ear.
- Move to the jawline and use the end of the gua sha tool with the two curves. Start from the chin and scrape until the ear. Gently massage the gua sha tool into the ear to release tension.
- For the under-eye area, very gently scrape the gua sha tool 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.

Stainless Steel is my life

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.

Cleans easier

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.

Amanda G.
Love it!

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!

Brooklyn R.
Self care and it works!

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!

Momo R.

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

Really lovely! Feels great in my hands, and is very solid.

Amanda G.

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:️

Joyce S.
Great Quality

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!

Isabella B.
Love it!

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.

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. ...
