If you’re familiar with Sarah Chapman, you’ll know of her Skinesis signature massage technique. This involves tapping, pinching and knuckling the face, particularly around the jawline.
Sarah created the Facialift tool to mimic her iconic skinesis massage, enabling clients to enjoy the same visible benefits from their own home.
As with many of my beauty discoveries, I spotted the Facialift tool whilst watching QVC beauty. and decided to give it a go.
One thing I can tell you, Sarah Chapman herself looks fabulous which inspires great confidence in a product that may appear gimmicky-looking to some.
A-list facialist Sarah Chapman Claims her Facialift massager, with its unique 8 heads and 48 massaging nodules, reshapes, refines and tones the contours of your face, releasing tension in the jaw, aiding lymphatic drainage to dramatically lift and sculpt.
This innovative massager mimics the techniques of Sarah’s radiance-promoting Skinesis Facial Massage.
Regular use brightens, tightens, drains toxins and reduces puffiness by boosting the supply of vital nutrients and oxygen to your skin. If you’re after quick results and an immediate glow, look no further.
Collagen keeps our skin plump and youthful but, worryingly it starts depleting at a rate of 1% per year from the age of twenty. Thankfully, we can help slow the process a little by encouraging collagen production in our skin. This can be done through facial massage and/or exercise.
With more than forty muscles in our face – it’s no surprise that if we don’t keep them toned, our facial contours will start to sag and droop as we age.
Much like other muscles in our bodies, If you exercise your facial muscles regularly you should start to see a tightening or firming of your features. Throw in a Massage, and you’ll also benefit from extra blood flow. More blood flow…More glow.
Facial massage and exercise have remained firmly in my beauty routine for many years Starting with a Cleo facial exerciser (well before I needed it) and remain a diligent advocate of facial massage and exercise.
Over the years, I’ve used all kinds of electrical facial gadgetry. Including Tua Viso which passively stimulates the facial muscles with tiny electrical impulses. I’ve had to reign back my Tua Viso use a little due to my heart condition, going overboard seems to cause odd heart sensations for me as it can interrupt normal rhythm. The very reason it’s not recommended for those of us with heart problems; I’ve never been one to do as I’m told (within reason).
How to use the Facialift tool
Start by placing the tool on your chin, holding it at a right angle to your body and gently roll it back and forth along your jawline – if you go a little faster it feels more comfortable.
Next, place the tool to the front of your neck and roll it back and forth, then switch the angle again so that you’re holding the tool under your chin and roll it upwards. Once you’ve rolled your jawline and neck, turn the tool around and use the flat paddle at the handle end to gently pat over the entire face, focussing on bony areas such as the eye contour, encouraging toxins to drain and increase blood flow around the area. Watch Sarah Chapman demonstrate the Facialift Tool here.
Given that all those electrical impulses can be troublesome if you suffer from any kind of heart issue, using the Facialift tool is the perfect alternative.
I love the idea of encouraging lymphatic drainage around my jawline, as I certainly don’t want fluid build up there. Plus, who doesn’t want a lovely glow to their skin? I use mine two or three times a week at bedtime after I’ve applied my usual skincare. Stimulating that all-important collagen production and lymphatic drainage, I can then drift off letting my body get to work while I sleep.
Whilst I prefer to use my Facialift massager at bedtime, I have been known to roll my jawline a few times in the mornings, use it whenever fits for your routine
Occasionally, I’ll roll my jawline a few rimes post-makeup if I’m heading out for a quick circulation boost. It’s such a therapeutic experience and with such visible results, I’ve no reason to stop.
I recently shared my tried and tested tips for flawless skin – why not find out more.
Have you ever tried Sarah Chapman Facialift? I’d love to know what you think!
This sounds so intriguing! I’ve heard about massaging your face before and I didn’t really believe it would have that much benefit or visible results. But now your entire post has persuaded me to start trying it! Such a simple yet effective thing to do! Great post Samantha, Clare xxx | Clayaa.com
Thanks Clare, it’s so simple like you say and has such great benefits. You should try it! X
Ooooh this looks like a goodun! I have looked into getting something like this, this looks a lot gentler than the needling tools I have been looking at which I don’t think would do my skin any good at all because it’s so sensitve, so this on the other hand looks perfect! xx
It really is. Still want to try a derma roller though. I reckon they both have their place. Maybe you could try this an alternate for your sensitive skin though! If you try it let me know how you get on 🙂 x
Loved this post, I always enjoy reading your posts. This looks so interesting and intriguing. Not sure about the painful part as I hate pain but I guess as you said you’ve got to use it the best way that suits you x
It’s not so bad once you figure out the best way of using it. Thanks lovely, glad you enjoyed reading x
Oh wow, this sounds so interesting! I would definately be interested in this, as long as it’s not to painful haha! Great post Samantha! x
Honestly, it’s not too painful once you get to grips with your own way of using it! x
I’m so intrigued by this! I always thought massaging your face like this would probably be beneficial but I didn’t think it would have such an impact. I’ve never tried it but I definitely want to! Although like you I don’t think I could use something in a way that was uncomfortable as I’d rather it was an enjoyable experience. Fab post!
It’s a really interesting subject isn’t it?! and so worth it. Quite often I’ll massage oils into my face too it really gives a lovely glow once the skin has settled! x
This is such an interesting product! I’ve never heard of anything quite like it. You’ve posted such a great review though. I don’t think I could deal with it though as I have such a low pain threshold, but the benefits sound so good xx

I think it’s a case of trial and error when using the tool so you can find you’re own way whereby it’s not so painful. I guess it shouldn’t hurt,I’m probably just being a wimp! x
It seams like an amazing tool.
Thanks for the introduction.
You’re welcome, hope you found it a useful review x
