Charlotte Tilbury Cro Recovery Mask, £49

Best For: Boosting Glow 

Why We Love It: This new mask is well worth the hype. Combining icy temperatures (when left in the freezer) with facial acupressure, it stimulates circulation to refresh lacklustre skin. Inside you’ll find cooling, metal beads which are stored in small gel pockets to target certain areas of your face – think the cheekbones, jawline and above your brows. Once the mask is on, gently press them into your face to relieve tension and muscle pain. Better still, it’s made from a flexible silicone, so you’ll find it hugs every curve for optimum results. Not only is redness improved with regular use, you’ll also notice a better glow.

BeautyBio Cryo Roller, £85

Best For: Soothing Tension

Why We Love It: Dual-ended, this can be used on both the face and body, plus it’s made from professional-grade stainless steel so it stays ice-cold. Roll it over your skin to boost circulation, collagen production and to constrict pores for a more refined appearance. Use it over your shoulders too, or anywhere which feels knotted with tension.

Hayo’u Jade Beauty Restorer, £38

Best For: Relaxing Facial Muscles 

Why We Love It: This smooth tool has won countless awards, and we can see why. The glossy surface is ideal for gliding across your skin and sculpting different areas of your face. For best results, use an oil first to give everything some slip, taking the tool from your neck upwards using a firm pressure. The result? Healthier-looking skin that’s smooth and ready for anything that follows.

Fraîcheur Ice Globes, £52.25

Best For: A Bit Of Luxury

Why We Love Them: The OG of ice globes, these ones are expensive, but worth it. Offering myriad skincare benefits, they’re best stored in the freezer overnight before rolling them across the skin to boost blood flow and reduce inflammation. Start by using one in the centre of your forehead before gliding it out towards your hairline and near the temples. Continue with this motion all over to contour and firm your face. If you want to target the area around your eyes, use the tip of your tool and apply gentle pressure. You’ll find they’re great for soothing sunburn, puffiness and breakouts – plus, the calming effect makes them ideal for prepping skin for make-up.

Anne Semonin Precious Pearl Ice Cubes, £76

Best For: Smoother-Looking Skin

Why We Love Them: Dubbed a ‘mini facial’, these popular ice cubes come complete with a mixture of complexion-boosting ingredients. Think primrose oil to enhance elasticity, azelaic acid to brighten dark spots and marine spring water to hydrate. Before you use them, remove from the freezer, then wrap in the gauze provided. Apply directly to your face, eye, neck or décolleté area, moving in upward, circular motions. Incredibly satisfying, they instantly revive dull, lacklustre skin – ideal before a big event or after a sleepless night.

Heallily Facial Cryo Ice Globes, £32.99

Best For:  Face, Neck & Body
Why We Love Them: Designed to be used on the face, body and neck, these larger ice globes will cover a wider surface area. Made from stainless steel, they glide across skin, stimulating circulation and bringing fresh blood to the surface for a healthier-looking complexion. Try using a body serum or face cream first, then rolling this over the top for best results. They’re great for relieving tension  too, or easing headaches.

Angela Caglia Skincare, Cryo Facial Set, £98

Best For: Firmer, Brighter Results

Why We Love It: Angela Caglia is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after facialists, so you can be confident her cryo set is worth the money. The firm, scoop-like wands cup your skin and hug the contours of your face to ensure best results. Try using them with a few drops of serum. While results are temporary, skin will immediately look less red – plus, by taking down puffiness, it’s one of the best ways to wake up your skin.

001 Skincare London Cryopress Ice Facial Massager, £66 (was £75)

Best For: Speedy Results

Why We Love It: An A-list staple, this clever massager is loved by the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Gigi Hadid. Simply roll it around the contours of your face, working it back and forth in different directions. Keep the pressure gentle as you go, making sure you stimulate the muscles underneath the skin to drain away toxins. You’ll notice a difference almost instantly, but try to use it at least once a week for long-term results.

Nurse Jamie Super Cryo Massaging Orb, £14

Best For: Reducing Inflammation

Why We Love It: Available in large and mini sizes, these new facial tools from cult brand Nurse Jamie are designed to improve skin quality and tone. Simply unscrew the twist-off ring from the base, place the massaging orb in the fridge for 30-60 minutes, then screw everything back together. From there, roll it around your skin to encourage a more radiant, healthy-looking complexion. You can also use it warm by placing it into a bowl of warm water instead – we can confirm it feels seriously relaxing at the end of a long day.
