What is the best facial massager?

When it comes to choosing a massager, we can only recommend what we like best. The best massager for you is the one which you like best. Take the information on this list and match it to your needs.

Once you know what you like, you will have found the best massager for you. In the meantime, here are the ones we liked the best.

Buying Guide for Facial Massage Machines

What to know before buying a Facial Massager?

What do you need to know before making a purchase? Well, what do you need it for? It may sound simple, but the very first thing to think about is your needs.

  • Is it to only be used on your face or should it massage more?
  • Do you need portability, or do you need more? Do you want both?
  • Are you suffering from any skin conditions?
  • Do you have acne, spots, wrinkles, rashes, or blemishes?
  • Would you benefit from an ultrasonic massager? Or is that overkill?


When you think about design, you think about how a device looks. This may be important to you, and if it is, then you should find a device which matches your expectations.

Design may also be about use. Is the device ergonomic and easy to handle? A massage should be relaxing; the use should be part of this.


You may want to use a non-portable device if it gives a great upgrade in power, but we would always recommend going with a portable device. Your best option is a rechargeable device.

If you can avoid cables and plugging in devices, then the experience is already more relaxing. A rechargeable device will lose power, and you may find yourself with a dead device, but if you are on top of things, you can have a permanently charged massager, and once you have that, you can enjoy a massage anywhere.

You could also use a massager which needs batteries. You will still benefit from the portability, and if you keep spare batteries with you, you will never have a dead device. On the downside, you will have to purchase new batteries from time to time. Batteries are becoming longer lasting, and there are rechargeable batteries. The trade-off for the inconvenience is usually a lower price point.


Some massagers come with timers. If you massage for too long, you run the risk of irritating your skin. Timers help you to control the length of your massage and ensure that you do not run too long when you get into that zone of relaxation.

Types of Facial Massage Machines

The type of machine will again be a personal preference for you. You may decide to go with the simplest machine possible, or you could go with the most elaborate model. As long as you are getting the massage you need, you have made the correct choice.

Most massagers use rollers. When placed over the face, the rollers (or balls) deliver the treatment to the skin, by being, literally, rolled over the skin. More elaborate devices will have rollers which can be combined with oils and creams which will then be delivered to the face as they are used.

Manual Face Massagers

Some face roller massagers use your muscle to power the machine.  These don't need battery or plugs and you can easily tailor the intensity by the pressure you apply.

Mechanical Face Massagers

These use batteries. They also come in a variety of price points. Higher prices will give you more features, including rotating attachments and ultrasonic massages.

Electrical Face Massagers

These high-speed massagers produce frequencies which can heat and cool your face. They are great for rejuvenating and revitalizing your skin.

Benefits of Facial Massage

So, what can a facial massager do for you? Do you have stress built up in your skin? Does this stress produce wrinkles? Does day to day life get into your muscles? Do you have creases and lines? A facial massager can deal with all of that.

Wrinkles under eyes

Facial massagers can also help you skin products be absorbed better. By massaging your face and then using your products, you will be getting the best of both worlds. A few minutes a day will do wonders for your look.  Try using this homemade chamomile oil.

Facial massages also help to stimulate and lift the muscles in your face. A massage will bring much-needed oxygen to your face, resulting in a more youthful look and a natural glow. Your face will also benefit from detoxification. Toxins build up in your skin, and this can show. A massage will remove those toxins.
