As a beauty editor who's tried thousands of buzzy products and skincare inventions, let me tell it to you straight:
A lot of fancy (or freaky) beauty tools and gadgets are marketing BS.
Does anyone need pink, glittery ice balls, vibrating serum massagers or automatic makeup brush cleaners? No. But it's OK to want them if you have the money. Or the space in your bathroom cabinet.
Then, there are the products that look great on your feed and actually do some nice things for your face, too.
Like, say, a set of 'magic mushrooms' that promise to soothe and de-puff tired under eyes. Yep. That's the product name.
If you're sceptical about whether facial massage tools really work, keep scrolling for my honest review of these Salt by Hendrix tools - including what they can (and can't) do.
What the Heck Is the Salt by Hendrix Magic Mushroom Soother Set?
The SALT BY HENDRIX Magic Mushroom Soother Set is a set of two small facial massage tools made from natural rose quartz stone.
Unlike a jade roller or a gua sha, this set has been designed specifically for use around the eye area. The different size curved edges can easily navigate the contours of your eye socket, under eyes and brow bone.
I'm assuming they got their name because they're shaped like... mushrooms. One one end, you'll find a larger surface, with a smaller, thinner one on the other. Other than that, the name 'magic mushroom' is kind of buzzy - exactly the type of name that helps a product go viral on Instagram.
