PSA: This Is Not a Sex Toy
Really. It’s a platinum-coated face and body roller, made in Japan, obsessed over in Korea and now carried in Philly. The premise: A solar panel on the handle converts light into a micro-current, one that emulates the natural low-level electrical frequency already in our bodies (which weakens as we age). Rolling the ReFa Carat over your face and body—backs of knees, cheekbones, forehead, jaw line, chest, any spot that sags, dulls or bloats—stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage and, well, just feels good. In short, it’s a literal recharge of the skin. The end result? You won’t feel a buzz or notice Botox levels of improvement, but your skin will look tighter, tauter, de-puffed, glow-y and downright refreshed. So, yes, it’ll raise eyebrows. But really, that’s the whole point.
