NY Cryo + Thermo Soothing Mask, AED 115 | Solaris Laboratories

This reusable mask can be used to cool or warm your skin (either keep it in the freezer or pop it in the microwave) while facial acupressure beads stimulate blood circulation and refresh tired, lacklustre skin. Those beads are stored in gel pockets, targeting all curves of your face – think the cheekbones, jawline and around your eyes – to deliver optimum results. It’s not as expensive as similar models but it delivers the same impressive results – think less redness, better glow and smoother-looking skin.

Ice Roller, AED 88 | Kit.sch

Designed to boost lymphatic drainage, this clever ice roller is easy to work with and can be used on both the face and body to alleviate irritation, redness, inflammation and puffiness. Like others on this list, you just put it in the freezer or fridge before you use it, and it will stay cold for at least an hour. Offering immediate relief and cooling benefits, it’s ideal for those looking to relieve tension, sinus pressure and headaches. We recommend taking a gentle but firm approach as you move it around your skin. It works nicely on top of skincare, including sheet masks if you want to enhance their benefits. It’s great value for money, too.

Ice Globe, AED 300 | Fraicheur

The ‘OGs’ of ice globes, these ones are expensive but worth it. Offering numerous benefits, they work best when stored in the freezer overnight. Start by using one in the centre of your forehead before gliding it out towards your hairline and the temples, continuing all over to contour and firm. To target the under-eyes, use the tip of the tool and apply gentle pressure. Ideal for soothing sunburn, reducing puffiness and breakouts or prepping skin for make-up.

Mermaid Cryo Tools, AED 257 | Oxygen Boutique

Designed for comfort and ease of use, these large gua-sha-shaped spoons will hug your face to reduce redness and promote better radiance. They work by draining toxins beneath the skin, with regular usage proven to shrink larger pores. Start by softly moving from the centre of the face outward to flush the lymph, detoxify and depuff the skin. Then, focus on problem areas like the eyes, jawline, cheeks or forehead.

Cooling Eye Roller Ball, AED 29 (was AED 36) | Revolution Skincare

If you’re looking to target the eye area, this is the perfect tool. Inexpensive but designed to get the job done, it’s neat and compact with a small rollerball that hugs your eye contours neatly. Keep it in the fridge or freezer and use it on top of serums and moisturisers to help them better absorb. Though results are temporary, you’ll find it beats puffiness and redness, and brightens the skin for a lifted effect – that’s all thanks to the stimulation it offers to this delicate area. We also love to use it on the eyelids for extra cooling and depuffing benefits.

Super-Cryo Massaging Orb, AED 65 | Nurse Jamie

Available in both a miniature and larger size, we can’t get enough of this cryo orb that can be used on the face and body. We love the mini for total ease of use – it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand so you can glide the ice-cold wheel around your skin. It will move as you go, increasing blood flow to give your face a natural radiance that looks healthy and fresh. It also feels as if it’s tightening everything up, even if it is only for a short period of time. Keep it in the fridge or dunk it into ice water before you use it. You’ll find it gives your complexion a nice, smooth surface for make-up to adhere to.

Cryo-Tech Facial Tool, AED 318 | Odacitè

There’s a reason this receives such good reviews. Designed to do a bit of everything, it was created by Japanese scientists to ensure the in-built crystal would stay cold. Unlike others on this list, you don’t need to keep it in the fridge or freezer – just dip it into ice cold water before running it over your skin. It helps minimise puffiness to give skin a tauter, firmer appearance. We love the rollerball on the other side that targets harder-to-reach areas, including under the eyes. Bear in mind, it’s worth applying slightly more pressure when travelling upward and outward with a tool like this to help with drainage and depuffing.
